“Suzan-Lori Parks is one of the most important dramatists America has produced.”—Tony Kushner “The plan was that no matter what I did, how busy I was, what other commitments I had, I would write a play a day, every single day for a year. It would be about being present and being committed to the artistic process every single day, regardless of the ‘weather.’ It became a daily meditation, a daily prayer celebrating the rich and strange process of a writing life.”—Suzan-Lori Parks On November 13, 2002, the incomparable Suzan-Lori Parks got an idea to write a play every day for a year. She began that very day, finishing one year later. The result is an extraordinary testament to artistic commitment. This collection of 365 impeccably crafted pieces, each with its own distinctive characters and dramatic power, is a complete work by an artist responding to her world, each and every day. Parks is one of the American theater’s most wily and innovative writers, and her “stark but poetic language and fiercely idiosyncratic images transform her work into something haunting and marvelous” (TIME).

Orality has been central to the transmission of Sephardic customs, wisdom, and values for centuries. Throughout the Middle Ages, Spanish Jews were known for their linguistic skills, and as translators and storytellers they were the main transmitters of Eastern/Islamic culture to the Christian world. Derived from a distinguished heritage, Judeo-Spanish storytelling has evolved over a five-hundred-year historical journey. Constant contact with the surrounding societies of the past and with modern Israeli influences, making it more universal than other Sephardic oral genres. Told in order to entertain but also to teach, Judeo-Spanish folktales convey timeless wisdom and a colorful depiction of Sephardic communities up to the first half of the twentieth century. King Solomon and the Golden Fish is a selection of fifty-four folktales taken from Matilda Koén-Sarano’s collection of stories recorded in Ladino (Judeo-Spanish) and translated by Reginetta Haboucha into fluent and idiomatic English that preserves the flavor and oral nuances of each text. Haboucha provides commentary and annotations to the folktales that enlighten both the academic and the lay reader, making this book at once appealing to scholars and enjoyable for the general public. King Solomon and the Golden Fish is divided into six main thematic sections: Supernatural Tales, Tales of Fate, Tales of the Prophet Elijah, Romantic Tales, Tales of Cleverness and Wisdom, and Jokes and Anecdotes. These folktales remain a powerful link between modern-day Spanish Jews and the Hispano-Jewish legacy—this collection passes along that legacy and provides a source of the customs and values of Sephardic Jews.

Dad takes an unplanned detour during a family vacation to Winnipeg. He is lured by the Canadian lakes he fished as a young boy with his stepfather Cal and Uncle Joe. The rediscovery renews a dogged pursuit of the rare and elusive, freshwater monster -- the muskie. With single-minded fixation, three generations of Hawkins men (and an assortment of neighborhood kids) escape from civilization to focus annual fishing adventures on capturing a world-record muskie. Motivated by the enthusiasm of his young sons Z and Buck, Hawkins embarks on fishing expeditions to Big Bluff, the special lake of his youth. Grandpa Cal is invited to join the party and remains the grumpy skeptic based on past fishing experiences: "You knuckleheads couldn’t land a big one if it jumped in your pants." But for Hawkins and eldest son Z, no storm is too fierce, no forest too mosquito infested, and no boat motor too undependable to derail their dream. Comical predicaments and sometimes dangerous circumstances pepper the long hours and special moments the men share fishing on the intricate system of beautiful lakes that connect to Big Bluff. Early morning trips to the camp outhouse and greasy, dirty-dish-producing breakfasts prepared by Grandpa Cal fuel many extended days on the sacred water. Beyond fantastic speculations of giant fish and murderers, descriptions of fishing reel the reader into the ebb and flow of each day’s adventures. Roscoe, the boisterous, quirky camp owner, and muskie mentor Jasper, are just two of the colorful characters who inhabit the wilderness setting where the Hawkins men establish their tradition. Through a dense haze of evening mosquitoes and whisky breath, Roscoe tantalizes the boys with tales of "ji-uhnd" muskies as big as his "laig." Roscoe reveals treasured “secrid” directions to a hidden muskie promise land that will require navigating cluttered creeks, pushing heavy boats over multiple beaver dams, and a boatless portage through the forest. Years pass and normal life ensnares each of the men. Hawkins sees his fragile marriage with wife Abbey erode, watches his boys grow into men, and witnesses the unforgiving aging process claim vitality from his mother, Cal, and Uncle Joe. A strong desire to fully understand the people closest to him gives rise to a personal philosophy for Hawkins that probes and questions normally accepted "truths." Respect grows for his strong-willed mother, and Hawkins learns to cherish every occasion spent with Cal, Uncle Joe, and the boys. His marriage eventually ends and forces a difficult transition to a new life away from Z and Buck. But Hawkins gratefully learns that setbacks are not permanent. He discovers love for a spirited woman who often challenges his "simple-minded" male values. Can she accept the baffling worldview of this family of fanatical fishing nuts?

Chicken in a Cage is the second book of a trilogy set in Southeast Asia and China. The first book, Truth Gone Missing, introduced Laney and Cade, two seasoned travellers, whose vacation in Malaysia turned out to be a journey through a maze of theft, poaching, kidnapping, and murder. A year after their return to California, Laney and Cade set out again -- this time to Borneo. Because the trip is not to be a long one, they treat themselves to a stay at the luxurious Iban Longhouse Resort, where they intend to relax by a river in the midst of a tropical rain forest. Their peace is soon violently disrupted by murder, attack by pirates, and kidnapping -- all the result of a crime-web woven by self-serving officials and tribal members, corrupt developers and conservationists, alienated travellers and refugees, discontented employees and dysfunctional family members -- each a suspect, and each a Chicken in a Cage.
