The Little Seagull Handbook Third Edition

#ad
W. W. Norton & Company #ad - The pocket-sized handbook that does the work of a full-sized handbook, now with a new section on editing the errors that matter. Most handbooks include chapters on various general writing topics e. G. The writing process or the elements of an argument, but few cover the specific kinds of writing students are assigned to do.

And because it's so small, so easy to use, and so affordable, it's proven to be a popular alternative to larger and much more costly handbooks. Please note that this version of the ebook does not include access to any media or print supplements that are sold packaged with the printed book. The little seagull has chapters on reports, analyses, and all the other genres that college students are most often assigned.

Solito, Solita: Crossing Borders with Youth Refugees from Central America Voice of Witness

#ad
Haymarket Books #ad - Together they trekked through the jungles on the border between Guatemala and Mexico, where masked men assaulted them. In an era of fear,  and outright lies,  xenophobia, these stories amplify the compelling voices of migrant youth. We also meet gabriel, and through study, who after surviving sexual abuse starting at the age of eight fled to the United States, legal support and work, is now attending UC Berkeley.

He refused to join a gang, rode across mexico atop cargo trains, crossed the US border as a minor, and was handcuffed and thrown into ICE detention on his eighteenth birthday. We hear the story of rosa, a salvadoran mother fighting to save her life as well as her daughter’s after death squads threatened her family.

Solito, Solita: Crossing Borders with Youth Refugees from Central America Voice of Witness #ad - They are a mass migration of thousands, yet each one travels alone. Solito, solita alone, alone is an urgent collection of oral histories that tells—in their own words—the story of young refugees fleeing countries in Central America and traveling for hundreds of miles to seek safety and protection in the United States.

Fifteen narrators describe why they fled their homes, what happened on their dangerous journeys through Mexico, and for some, how they crossed the borders,  their ongoing struggles to survive in the United States. What can they teach us about abuse and abandonment, bravery and resilience, hypocrisy and hope? They bring us into their hearts and onto streets filled with the lure of freedom and fraught with violence.

From fending off kidnappers with knives and being locked in freezing holding cells to tearful reunions with parents,  Solito, Solita’s narrators bring to light the experiences of young people struggling for a better life across the border.

Listening Long and Late Pitt Poetry Series

#ad
University of Pittsburgh Press #ad - With refreshing authenticity, Everwine weds playfulness to practice, lyricism to narrative, pathos to the ordinary. Everwine writes with the same ‘deified heart’ that divines the mystery of his quotidian subjects in a language that is at once plain and poetic. His own work seamlessly segues into his translations from the Hebrew and Nahuatl, as if all the poems belonged to the same poet, which they in fact do, as the glorious multitudes of Peter Everwine, one of the masters of our age.

Chard deNiord. What a rich array of music lies within Listening Long and Late. Indeed, the hidden genius on the street, he has listened ‘long and late’ to the music of such venerable masters as Tu Fu, and the anonymous Aztec poets of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries.

The Abundance: Narrative Essays Old and New

#ad
Ecco #ad - The pieces within will exhilarate both admiring fans and a new generation of readers, having been “re-framed and re-hung, ” with fresh editing and reordering by the author, to situate these now seminal works within her larger canon. The abundance reminds us that dillard’s brand of “novelized nonfiction” pioneered the form long before it came to be widely appreciated.

In recognition of the pulitzer prize-winning author’s long and lauded career as a master essayist, including her most beloved pieces and some rarely seen work, a landmark collection, rigorously curated by the author herself. A writer who never seems tired, dillard can only be enjoyed by a wide-awake reader, who has never plodded her way through a page or sentence, ” warns Geoff Dyer in his introduction to this stellar collection.

Intense, a teenager memorizes rimbaud’s poetry—with beauty and irony, with a sense of humor: on one page, her work endows the true and seemingly ordinary aspects of life—a commuter chases snowball-throwing children through neighborhood streets, an eagle falls from the sky with a weasel attached to its throat; on another, vivid, to join her in exploring the complexities of time and death, inviting readers onto sweeping landscapes, and fearless, a man walks into a bar.

The Abundance: Narrative Essays Old and New #ad - Reminding us of the indelible contributions of this formative figure in contemporary nonfiction,  The Abundance exquisitely showcases Annie Dillard’s enigmatic, enduring genius, as Dillard herself wishes it to be marked. Carefully culled from her past work, delivered in her fierce and undeniably singular voice,  The Abundance is quintessential Annie Dillard, filled with fascinating detail and metaphysical fact.

#ad

By thirteen, he'd been picked up by the government army, at heart a gentle boy, and Beah, found that he was capable of truly terrible acts. This is a rare and mesmerizing account, told with real literary force and heartbreaking honesty.

My new friends have begun to suspect I haven't told them the full story of my life. Why did you leave Sierra Leone?""Because there is a war. You mean, you saw people running around with guns and shooting each other?""Yes, all the time. Cool. I smile a little. You should tell us about it sometime. Yes, sometime. This is how wars are fought now: by children, hopped-up on drugs and wielding AK-47s.

A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier #ad - Ishmael beah used to be one of them. What is war like through the eyes of a child soldier? How does one become a killer? How does one stop? Child soldiers have been profiled by journalists, and novelists have struggled to imagine their lives. But until now, there has not been a first-person account from someone who came through this hell and survived.

In a long way gone, tells a riveting story: how at the age of twelve, now twenty-five years old, Beah, he fled attacking rebels and wandered a land rendered unrecognizable by violence.
