              With echoes of Darin Strauss Half a Life and Cheryl Strayed s Wild comes a beautifully written, riveting memoir that examines the complexities of friendship in the aftermath of a tragedy.Four weeks before their college graduation, twenty-one-year-old Kevin Schaeffer walked Amy Bu...tcher to her home in their college town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Hours after parting ways with Amy, he fatally stabbed his ex-girlfriend, Emily Silverstein. While he awaited trial, psychiatrists concluded he had suffered an acute psychotic break. Amy was severely affected by Kevin s crime but remained devoted to him as a friend. Over time she became obsessed determined to discover the narrative that explained what Kevin had done, believing that Kevin s actions were the direct result of his untreated illness.The tragedy deeply shook her concept of reality, disrupted her sense of right and wrong, and dismantled every conceivable notion she d established about herself and her relation to the world. Amy eventually realized that she d never have the answers, or find personal peace, unless she went after them herself. She drove across the country back to Gettysburg for the first time in the three years since graduation to sift through two hundred pages of public records mental health evaluations, detectives notes, inventories of evidence, search warrants, testimonies, even Kevin s own confession.This is Amy Butcher s deeply personal, heart-wrenching account of the consequences of failing her friend when perhaps he needed one most. It s the story of how trauma affects memory and the way a friendship changes and often strengthens through seemingly insurmountable challenges. Ultimately, it s a powerful testament to the bonds we share with others and the profound resiliency and strength of the human spirit.

              Sideways 3 Chile follows the further adventures of Miles Raymond (played by Paul Giamatti in the now cult movie Sideways ) and, to a lesser extent, his friend Jack. It s now ten years later, and Miles is a successful author, but he s still searching for something; depression has ...him, once again, in its taloned grip. Offered a chance to travel to the antipodean country of Chile and visit their wine regions for a magazine assignment, Miles, his world turned upside down by bad financial investments and even worse luck with relationships, happily agrees. A somewhat cynical Miles finds Chile, it people, and its spectacular, and vastly diverse wine regions to be a life-transforming journey. The Sideways trilogy is now complete.

              Philip F. Gura offers the first book-length biography of William Apess (1798 1839), the Pequot Indian writer and Methodist minister who is generally regarded one of the first published Native American authors. Born in 1798 in Colrain, Massachusetts, Apess early life was marked by... abuse, transiency, and alcoholism until, as a young man, he experienced a powerful conversion at a Methodist gathering. Following his conversion, Apess enlisted in the United States Army, accompanying troops sent to the Canadian front during the War of 1812. After the war, he returned to New England, was formally ordained as a Methodist preacher, and in 1829 published A Son of the Forest, generally thought to be the first formal Native American autobiography. In 1833, Apess visited a Native American congregation at Mashpee on Cape Cod and quickly emerged as a leader in that group s fight for tribal rights against the government of Massachusetts. Arrested for his part in the Mashpee Revolt, Apess went on to write two books speaking to the racial prejudice he encountered during the Mashpee affair and agitating for Native American self-determination. In the years following the publication of his second and third books, however, Apess fortunes worsened, and he died, impoverished, in 1839.Contextualizing Apess story richly in the broader geography and history of early nineteenth-century New England and writing for a broad public audience, Gura draws Apess out of relative obscurity and recenters him as a key figure in the history of American letters and ideas as well as Native American history.
