Carverton, Kentucky, is one of many small communities in the mountains of Appalachia that have endured for centuries, undisturbed by progress. Nestled along the west bank of the Red Bird River, it’s a pleasant, neighborly place where everyone knows everyone, and if they don’t, they soon will. As 1960 approaches, the residents of Carverton realize that ignoring the ever-changing world around them is no longer an option. New challenges unfold throughout the community, while twelve-year-old Wilhelmina Louise Carver, called Willa Lou, takes interest in her own heritage. She listens to stories and experiences of her elders, pursuing hints of a mystery. But when a tragic accident leaves her looking for comfort in her grief, she stumbles upon a well-kept secret. This novel, set in small-town Kentucky in the middle of the twentieth century, tells the story of a young girl coming of age in the midst of tragedy.

John Buchan

The 39 Steps is a melodrama adapted from the 1915 novel by John Buchan and the 1935 film by Alfred Hitchcock. The original concept and production of a four-actor version of the story was by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon. Patrick Barlow rewrote this adaptation in 2005. The play's concept calls for the entirety of the 1935 adventure film The 39 Steps to be performed with a cast of only four. One actor plays the hero, Richard Hannay, an actress (or sometimes actor) plays the three women with whom he has romantic entanglements, and two other actors play every other character in the show: heroes, villains, men, women, children and even the occasional inanimate object. This often requires lightning fast quick-changes and occasionally for them to play multiple characters at once. Thus the film's serious spy story is played mainly for laughs, and the script is full of allusions to (and puns on the titles of) other Alfred Hitchcock films, including Strangers on a Train, Rear Window, Psycho, Vertigo and North by Northwest.

Andrä Breton

The Lost Steps (Les Pas perdus) is Andri Breton's first collection of critical and polemical essays. Composed between 1917 and 1923, these pieces trace his evolution during the years when he was emerging as a central figure in French (and European) intellectual life. They chronicle his tumultuous passage through the Dada movement, proclaim his explosive views on Modernism and its heroes, and herald the emergence of Surrealism itself. Along the way, we are given Breton's serious commentaries on his Modernist predecessors, Guillaume Apollinaire and Alfred Jarry, followed by his not-so-serious Dada manifestoes. Also included are portraits of Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, and Breton's mysterious friend Jacques Vachi, as well as a crisis-by-crisis account of his dealing with Dada's leader, Tristan Tzara. Finally, Breton offers a first glimpse of Surrealism, the movement that was forever after identified with his name and that stands as a defining force in twentieth-century aesthetics. Mark Polizzotti, editorial director of David R. Godine, Publisher, is the author of Revolution of the Mind: The Life of Andri Breton. He is also the translator of Jean Echenoz's Double Jeopardy (Nebraska 1994) and Cherokee (Nebraska 1994) and of Andri Breton's Conversations: The Autobiography of Surrealism. Mary Ann Caws is Distinguished Professor of French at Hunter College and at the City University of New York. Her most recent work is Robert Motherwell: What Art Holds. She is the translator of Andri Breton's Mad Love (Nebraska 1987) and Communicating Vessels (Nebraska 1990).
