Anthology

Beadworkers

Beadworkers

$23.00
More Info
Beth Piatote's luminous debut collection opens with a feast, grounding its stories in the landscapes and lifeworlds of the Native Northwest, exploring the inventive and unforgettable pattern of Native American life in the contemporary world

Told with humor, subtlety, and spareness, the mixed-genre works of Beth Piatote's first collection find unifying themes in the strength of kinship, the pulse of longing, and the language of return.

A woman teaches her niece to make a pair of beaded earrings while ruminating on a fractured relationship. An eleven-year-old girl narrates the unfolding of the Fish Wars in the 1960s as her family is propelled to its front lines. In 1890, as tensions escalate at Wounded Knee, two young men at college--one French and the other Lakota--each contemplate a death in the family. In the final, haunting piece, a Nez Perce-Cayuse family is torn apart as they debate the fate of ancestral remains in a moving revision of the Greek tragedy Antigone.

Formally inventive and filled with vibrant characters, The Beadworkers draws on Indigenous aesthetics and forms to offer a powerful, sustaining vision of Native life.

Bedtime Stories for Grown-ups

$25.00
More Info
A rich and comforting anthology of more than 70 short stories, poems, fairytales, and bedtime classics--from William Shakespeare to B.J. Novak and from Charles Dickens to Neil Gaiman--for grown-ups who want to unwind, unplug, and slip into soothing stories that will send them off to slumberland.

There are few more precious routines than that of the bedtime story. So why do we discard this treasured ritual as grown-ups and risk sacrificing our good health and well-being?

In this groundbreaking anthology, Ben Holden, editor of the bestselling Poems That Make Grown Men Cry, challenges how we think about life--one-third of which is spent asleep. He deftly explores not only the science of sleep but also why we endlessly tell stories--even to ourselves, as we dream.

Holden combines his own illuminating storytelling with a treasure trove of timeless classics and contemporary gems. Poems and short stories, fairy tales and fables, reveries and nocturnes--from Robert Frost to Haruki Murakami, Jimmy Carter to Roald Dahl, Margaret Atwood to Nora Ephron, Vladimir Nabokov to Walt Whitman--are all woven together to replicate the journey of a single night's sleep.

So close your laptop and put away your mobile phone. Curl up and crash out with the ultimate bedside book, one you'll return to again and again, or give as a gift to a friend or loved one. Filled with moonlight and magic, laughter and tears, Bedtime Stories for Grown-ups joyfully provides the ultimate way to end the day--and begin the night...
