The Old Man in the Club Book Excerpt:

He’s the “old guy in the club” who everyone judges and scorns, but there’s so much more to his story…Travel into the mind and soul of a complex man on the road to redemption in this riveting, true-to-life novel. Almost everyone who has been to a nightclub has seen him: the “old man in the club.” He’s the graying, balding loner looking totally out of place, like he could be everyone’s father. Or grandfather. And almost everyone’s wondering the same thing: Why is he in here? In Curtis Bunn’s The Old Man in the Club, you learn why. Meet Elliott Thomas, sixty-one years old, and not afraid of spending a night among twenty-something strangers. But his motivation for hanging out in clubs isn’t his fear of growing old; it’s his desire to “catch up on what I have missed.” Life hasn’t been easy for Elliott, and now he’s on a journey to redemption. How he goes about it, however, gives some people pause. Some find him charming, some find him creepy. The women his age find him disgusting. His buddies marvel at his nerve. His children loathe his existence. But no matter who judges him, Elliott is set on reclaiming his youth—the way he wants to. A page-turner that outlines the depth, complexities, and motivations of an intriguing character, this novel will surprise and touch you—and make sure you’ll never look at the “old man in the club” the same way again.

The Old Man from Leftfield Book Excerpt:

When I was a kid in the late 1950s, while I was a student at Paoli Elementary School, I read the famous children's book that talks about the Kid from Leftfield. Also around that time, I always said to myself, "What is it going to be like in the year 2000? I'll be fifty years old!" I couldn't comprehend being that old; the thought of it scared me, and I'd probably be in a wheelchair or something worse. I bet a lot of people my age thought the same thing. This is the story of what that kid did when he reached the age of fifty.

The Old Man and the Medal Book Excerpt:

Writing in French in the 1950s, Ferdinand Léopold Oyono (1929–2010) had only a brief literary career, but his anticolonialist novels are considered classics of twentieth-century African literature. Like Oyono’s Houseboy, also available from Waveland Press, this novel fiercely satirizes the false pretenses of European colonial rule in Africa. Meka, a village elder, has always been loyal to the white man. It is with pride that he first hears he is to receive a medal. While waiting for the ceremony, however, Meka’s pride gives way to skepticism. At the same time, his wife has realized that the medal is being given to her husband as compensation for the sacrifices they have made. The events following the ceremony confirm Meka’s new estimation of the white man. Both subtle and oftentimes humorous, this beautifully told story lays bare the hollowness of the mission in Africa. It fuels opportunities for discussing colonial politics around class and race as well as for exploring indigenous Cameroon life and values.

The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared Book Excerpt:

A larger-than-life old man with a fondness for vodka goes on an unexpected adventure in this whimsical novel -- perfect for fans of Forrest Gump and A Man Called Ove. The international publishing sensation -- more than six million copies sold worldwide! A reluctant centenarian much like Forrest Gump (if Gump were an explosives expert) decides it's not too late to start over . . . After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he's still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn't interested (and he'd like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash, some unpleasant criminals, a friendly hot-dog stand operator, and an elephant (not to mention a death by elephant). It would be the adventure of a lifetime for anyone else, but Allan has a larger-than-life backstory: Not only has he witnessed some of the most important events of the twentieth century, but he has actually played a key role in them. Starting out in munitions as a boy, he somehow finds himself involved in many of the key explosions of the twentieth century and travels the world, sharing meals and more with everyone from Stalin, Churchill, and Truman to Mao, Franco, and de Gaulle. Quirky and utterly unique, The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared has charmed readers across the world.

Old Man s Cabin Book Excerpt:

No one saw it being built, and the residents of River Bend, Arkansas never got acquainted with the builder before he just disappeared, but he left his tiny, strictly one-man, cabin behind on property that belonged to no one. The land had once belonged to the river, and someday it might be taken back, but in the 1900s hill country, it had one more purpose and the angels would see that the purpose came about. Young Jefferson Masters was a master logger, being the link between the massive trees on the hillside and the lovely, durable furniture created from oak, pecan and walnut logs. He was also skillful at turning logs into cabins, and would create one for himself just as soon as he found someone to occupy it with him. For a young man who is slow in finding a mate, the best path to take is toward a girl who knows how it’s done... and again, it may take the services of an angel... or maybe a sick, old man.

Left Handed Son of Old Man Hat Book Excerpt:

With a simplicity as disarming as it is frank, Left Handed tells of his birth in the spring of 1868 “when the cottonwood leaves were about the size of [his] thumbnail,” of family chores such as guarding the sheep near the hogan, and of his sexual awakening. As he grows older, his account turns to life in the open: nomadic cattle-raising, farming, trading, communal enterprises, tribal dances and ceremonies, lovemaking, and marriage. As Left Handed grows in understanding and stature, the accumulated wisdom of his people is revealed to him. He learns the Navajo lifeway, which is founded on the principles of honesty, foresightedness, and self-discipline. The style of the narrative is almost biblical in its rhythms, but biblical, too, in many respects, is the traditional way of life it recounts.

Rantings Of An Old Man Book Excerpt:

This book was written for all of you who remain in perpetual fear of expressing yourselves when it comes to the things that effect your lives: things that you hate to see, hear, and feel; things that constantly prevent you from living your lives the way you want to live them; things that you yearn to voice your opinion about but don’t because of the politically correct stick that you have allowed the world to stick up your ass. Lucky you! I’m here to rescue you. “Rantings Of An Old Man” will say for you the things you are not willing to say for yourself. Of course, many who read this book will hate me and practically everything I say. What’s more, they will brand me as being the king of bigots. But, you know what—if that turns out NOT to be the case, than I will have failed in my mission. And the thought of that scares me because it will indicate that my book was not pithy enough, truthful enough, and relevant enough to make a difference in their lives. (That includes your life as well.) Do yourself a favor, go to the Foreword of this book and look at the last page which I have entitled, “Table Of Rantings.” There you will find listed the veritable plethora of topics I cover in the book. From that you will know right away whether or not this book is for you. A word to the wise: If your legs quiver whenever you see the “f-word” written, or if your hands begin to shake and/or your eyes begin to well every time you hear something negative about your own personal or political philosophy, your political party, or your race, then I suggest you refrain from reading this book. Make your move, pilgrim.
