Challenged by Ku Klux Klan action in the '20s, labor protests culminating in a general strike in the '40s, and the rise of the civil rights and black power struggles of the '60s, Oakland, California, seems to encapsulate in one city the broad and varied sweep of urban social movements in twentieth-century America. Taking Oakland as a case study of urban politics and society in the United States, Chris Rhomberg examines the city's successive episodes of popular insurgency for what they can tell us about critical discontinuities in the American experience of urban political community.

ONE OF THE 10 BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR—THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW WINNER OF THE CENTER FOR FICTION FIRST NOVEL PRIZE One of the Best Books of the Year: The Washington Post, NPR, Time, O, The Oprah Magazine, San Francisco Chronicle, Entertainment Weekly, The Boston Globe, GQ, The Dallas Morning News, Buzzfeed, BookPage, Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Kirkus Reviews NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLER Tommy Orange’s “groundbreaking, extraordinary” (The New York Times) There There is the “brilliant, propulsive” (People Magazine) story of twelve unforgettable characters, Urban Indians living in Oakland, California, who converge and collide on one fateful day. It’s “the year’s most galvanizing debut novel” (Entertainment Weekly). As we learn the reasons that each person is attending the Big Oakland Powwow—some generous, some fearful, some joyful, some violent—momentum builds toward a shocking yet inevitable conclusion that changes everything. Jacquie Red Feather is newly sober and trying to make it back to the family she left behind in shame. Dene Oxendene is pulling his life back together after his uncle’s death and has come to work at the powwow to honor his uncle’s memory. Opal Viola Victoria Bear Shield has come to watch her nephew Orvil, who has taught himself traditional Indian dance through YouTube videos and will to perform in public for the very first time. There will be glorious communion, and a spectacle of sacred tradition and pageantry. And there will be sacrifice, and heroism, and loss. There There is a wondrous and shattering portrait of an America few of us have ever seen. It’s “masterful . . . white-hot . . . devastating” (The Washington Post) at the same time as it is fierce, funny, suspenseful, thoroughly modern, and impossible to put down. Here is a voice we have never heard—a voice full of poetry and rage, exploding onto the page with urgency and force. Tommy Orange has written a stunning novel that grapples with a complex and painful history, with an inheritance of beauty and profound spirituality, and with a plague of addiction, abuse, and suicide. This is the book that everyone is talking about right now, and it’s destined to be a classic.

Some people lost their sense of proportion, others their sense of scale, but Simon Dykes, a middle-aged, successful London painter, has lost his sense of perspective in a most disturbing fashion. After a night of routine, pedestrian debauchery, traipsing from toilet to toilet, and imbibing a host of narcotics on the way, Simon wakes up cuddled in his girlfriend’s loving arms. Much to his dismay, however, his girlfriend has turned into a chimpanzee. To add insult to injury, the psychiatric crash team sent to deal with him as he flips his lid is also comprised of chimps. Indeed, the entire city is overrun by clever primates, who, when they are not jostling for position, grooming themselves, or mating some of the females, can be found driving Volvos, hanging out on street corners, and running the world. Nonetheless convinced that he is still a human, Simon is confined to the emergency psychiatric ward of Charing Cross Hospital, where he becomes the patient of Dr. Zack Busner, clinical psychologist, medical doctor, anti-psychiatrist, and former television personality—an expert at the height of his reign as alpha male. As Busner attempts to convince him that “everyone who is fully sentient in this world are chimpanzees,” Simon struggles with the horrifying delusion that he is really a human trapped in a chimp’s body. Written with the same brilliant satiric wit that has distinguised Self’s earlier fiction, Great Apes is a hilarious, often disturbing, and absolutely original take on man’s place in the evolutionary chain. In a strange and twisted tale that recalls Jonathan Swift and Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis, Will Self’s comic genius is impossible to ignore.

You Are Already There YOU CAN NEVER BE ANYWHERE ELSE There are so many chasing this so-called enlightenment, when all along they are already there, but because this is too simple they just don't want to believe it. They are after something harder, something that makes them feel they have deserved this reward of enlightenment. This is my story of my own inner experience in this so-called enlightenment. I have shared what I disappeared into and came out laughing because I have realised that this so-called enlightenment is simply who we all are; we are there, we have always been there, and we can be nowhere else but there. I'll share with you my own experience and what brought me to this experience of so-called enlightenment and how you can also experience what I and many more have experienced. You will learn that there is no big deal to this experience, and it's so simple that you will be laughing at how simple it is, and you may wonder why you never realised this before. It's all fun, so don't take anything I say seriously. In fact, never take anything seriously about enlightenment. After all, You Are Already There.

The novel is a semi-fictionalized roman a clef in which the author describes in great detail, and through the eyes of others, his protagonist, Peter Wyse. The almost 70-year storyline begins in 1937 and ends in 2005, with the scene shifting from New York to Oklahoma, on to West Virginia, and then to Houston and Harris County, Texas. Peter's story starts with his childhood (and a brutal rape), continuing through his school years and into college, where he meets his true love, Sarah. Letters between the lovers tell of their courtship and engagement. An unintended pregnancy threatens Peter's medical school career, while severe depression challenges his marriage and results in a suicide attempt. Along the way, Peter and Sarah raise four children and share many happy memories. Each chapter tells a fascinating story, until deceit, betrayal, and infidelity culminate in divorce. A thorough vetting of the legal process adds fury to the situation. The tragic deaths of Peter's two medical partners, life post-divorce and through remarriage are all explored. From There to Here is not all serious, however. As in life, there is humor, pathos and discovery, and the book ends with a truly surprising conclusion.

In this novel based on true events, a little girl kidnapped by her father must learn to survive in the midst of a chaotic existence. Once upon a time in an exotic land called Miami Beach, a Jewish American princess was born. Not lucky enough to have a fairy godmother or even a mother to watch over her, the princess only had a wicked, malevolent, and misogynistic father. Life was good for the little princessuntil she turned three and her father snatched her away from everything she had ever known. Traveling in a 1941 Chrysler with a volatile man who took her to the Catskills, Mexico, and Las Vegas, the princess told herself that all would be well. She was with her father, after all. But the excitement of embarking on an adventure soon waned when she realized she might never know her real name, would never know where she will be living from one day to the next, and would never know if she would be acting like a boy or girl each morning when she woke up. Based on true events, Then Theres Tomorrow tells the compelling story of a little girl who must search for her own identity as she learns to cope in a turbulent existence chosen for her by a man who loves no one but himself.

There There: A novel by Tommy Orange Conversation Starters There There is the New York Times bestselling book of author Tommy Orange. This groundbraking book poses the question, "What does it really mean to be an Indian? A native American? American Indian?" There There follows a unique case of tennagers and elders who ask this question in light of the complexity of the modern world. Orange's characters live in the urban Oakland, California. This novel explored the many different waya of being an Indian. More importantly, ways of feeling like an Indian. Their detachment from tradition, their fractured families and the hustle and bustle of life in Oakland, make their identity as Indians even more elusive. American War author Omar El Akkad says that There There is "about what it means to inhabit a land both yours and stolen from you, to simultaneously contend with the weight of belonging and unbelonging."

Consisting of four accounts of encounters with four male characters, each of them visited by a different Christopher Isherwood, and each set in a different time and place—Berlin in the 1920s (overlapping the time period of the Berlin Stories), the Greek Isles in the early 1930s, London in the late 1930s and California in 1940—this acclaimed novel explores Isherwood's fundamental concerns with the choice of a way of life, and its implications for love, sex, spirituality and self-fulfillment. Published in 1959, when Isherwood had already become something of a literary rock star, Down There on a Visit is a very funny but also sad and deeply personal book that charts Isherwood's life of carnal indulgence and his first interlude with what would become a serious involvement with Eastern mysticism.

This is the story of a little girl who was destined to suffer since she was three years old—sexually, mentally, and physically abused until she was forty-six. At three years old, she started being abused by her stepsister’s husband, her aunts, her cousins, her father, her father’s best friend, her doctors, and, last but not least, her husband. The beauty of all this is that at forty-six years old, she went for counseling and got healed and delivered and learned to forgive each and every person who did her so much wrong. And she was blessed with a position as a parent educator with the school district, and she used every abuse since she was just three years old until she was forty-six to educate parents and young couples on how to not trust just anyone with their little ones and their teenagers. And how, when couples mistreat each other, we are hurting our children and teaching them that lifestyle without knowing we are risking our children to marry abusers when they grow up. She did this for fifteen years. She wasn’t afraid, embarrassed, or ashamed to speak the truth to be able to help others, especially the children. Please don’t criticize or laugh about what you are about to read: this is a real story, and it is still going on today in a lot of homes, hospitals, and schools. And it will continue if there is not enough of us brave enough to speak up and do something for the sake of our loved ones, especially for the children who can’t defend themselves.

Bill Bryson’s first travel book, The Lost Continent, was unanimously acclaimed as one of the funniest books in years. In Neither Here nor There he brings his unique brand of humour to bear on Europe as he shoulders his backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet, and journeys from Hammerfest, the northernmost town on the continent, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia. Fluent in, oh, at least one language, he retraces his travels as a student twenty years before. Whether braving the homicidal motorists of Paris, being robbed by gypsies in Florence, attempting not to order tripe and eyeballs in a German restaurant or window-shopping in the sex shops of the Reeperbahn, Bryson takes in the sights, dissects the culture and illuminates each place and person with his hilariously caustic observations. He even goes to Liechtenstein.

Spirited American stories gathered together for the first time From the coasts of Brazil to the borders of Tibet to the very heartland of America, May There Be a Road gathers ten previously uncollected stories that capture the magnificent scope and sense of epic adventure that epitomize Louis L'Amour classic fiction. In these vivid settings L’Amour takes us into the pivotal moments when lives are altered forever, when men and women face a deadly enemy, find a kindred spirit, or confront their own mortality. Among the unforgettable characters we meet here are a hard-living, hard-drinking freighter captain whose penchant for flying may change the course of World War II . . . A lonely frontiersman who unexpectedly finds himself the protector of two orphans . . . A boxer who accepts a gambler’s payoff and then must fight to redeem himself . . . A detective willing to believe an unproven story in order to discover a painful truth hidden in a small town. And in the title story L’Amour weaves the powerful tale of a young Tibetan khan who leads a band of horsemen on a daring escape across treacherous mountain terrain. At stake is the survival of a people and an ancient way of life. Evoking the American spirit of bravery, pride, adventure, and self-reliance as few writers have, this extraordinary volume proves once again that L’Amour has set a standard yet to be matched.

We wanted to share these stories not only with our families and friends, but with others. In so doing, we honor our parents and acknowledge the distinctive ways in which they coped with overwhelming circumstances. Their efforts and their courage made it possible for us to survive. We also remember our sometimes miraculous escapes, our subsequent adventures, and the challenges of adapting to a new culture and a foreign language. We even discovered occasional joy in the process.

Now that you are aware of the things Father God simply cannot do, you should be encouraged and convinced of the things he will do for you. You should be fully persuaded to run your race to completion! Remember John 8:32 says, “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” “And if the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36) Father God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him, according to Hebrew 11:6.
