Molly Ivins: Letters to The Nation by Molly Ivins Book Resume:
Writing in her native “Texlish,” Molly Ivins planted herself squarely in the tradition of plain-spoken and earthy American humor, the big river that runs from Mark Twain straight through to Will Rogers, Ring Lardner and George Carlin. Between 1982 and 2007, Ivins contributed seventeen consistently sharp and funny articles to The Nation, starting with what might be described as her “Letters From Texas,” in which she discussed political developments in the Lone Star State, whose zany politics were full of exotic people dubbed “The Gibber,” “The Breck Girl” and “Governor Goodhair.” Despite their humor, however, Ivins’s pieces always delivered trenchant political commentary. And she could also write highly accomplished and fascinating cultural essays and book reviews (such as “Ezra Pound in East Texas,” included in this eBook).

Baffled in Boston by Gary Provost Book Resume:
Baffled in Boston marks the debut of the most likable—and unlikely—sleuth to come along in years. Burned-out true-crime writer Scotty Scotland has been abandoned by his wife, ordered to give up coffee by his doctor, and according to his latest review, he should give up writing too. He spends his days winning imaginary arguments with his wife, defacing reviews of his novels, and counting flowers on the wallpaper. But when his best friend Molly, a nationally syndicated advice columnist, is murdered, Scotty must get out of his pajamas and into action to find the killer … "Dear Molly, I'm competing with 18,000 preachers, plumbers, writers, shrinks—and a set of quintuplets—to be the new you. If I win the contest, I could solve a lot of problems … and maybe your murder, too. The problem is, between the paper's sleazy management, bitter rival columnists, and the psychos who read your column, I've got more suspects than Walgreen's has Rolaids, and so far, I've only ruled out Ann and Abby … Baffled in Boston, Scotty"

The Theatre of Brian Friel by Christopher Murray Book Resume:
Brian Friel is Ireland's foremost living playwright, whose work spans fifty years and has won numerous awards, including three Tonys and a Lifetime Achievement Arts Award. Author of twenty-five plays, and whose work is studied at GCSE and A level (UK), and the Leaving Certificate (Ire), besides at undergraduate level, he is regarded as a classic in contemporary drama studies. Christopher Murray offers the definitive guide to Friel's work; both a detailed study of individual plays and an exploration of Friel's dual commitment to tradition and modernity across his oeuvre. Beginning with Friel's 1964 work Philadelphia, Here I Come! it follows a broadly chronological route through the principle plays, including Aristocrats, Faith Healer, Translations, Dancing at Lughnasa, Molly Sweeney and The Home Place. Along the way it considers themes of exile, politics, fathers and sons, belief and ritual, history, memory, gender inequality, and loss, all set against the dialectic of tradition and modernity.
