List price: $15.00
Author: J D DuPuy

The perfect gift for the lawyers in your life -- for law school graduation, birthdays, firm holiday gifts, retirement, or just because. More than 70 vignettes from life in the practice of law are rendered here as wryly humorous poems. Each one stands alone as the sort of snapshot one lawyer might forward along to another for a laugh or a knowing nod. Together, they comprise a collection to be treasured by anyone who has lived through law school, first jobs, thrilling victories, eye-opening disappointments, and the lifestyle particular to this career choice. This book is not about laughing at lawyers. It’s about laughing with them. It’s for everyone who’s in on the joke: Everyone who has witnessed the madness and met the quirky characters in this field. Everyone who, even just for a second, has wondered if they should have gone to medical school, culinary school... anything other than law school. Everyone who has ever sat down at the end of an evening and thought, “No one would even believe me if I told them about my day." We believe you. (Authors donate a portion of book proceeds to WomensLaw.org, The WomensLaw Project of the National Network to End Domestic Violence.)

No Mopes Allowed: A Small Town Police Chief Rants and Babbles about Hugs and High Fives, Meth Busts, Internet Celebrity, and Other Adventures . . .

No Mopes Allowed: A Small Town Police Chief Rants and Babbles about Hugs and High Fives, Meth Busts, Internet Celebrity, and Other Adventures . . . Lowest new price: $9.21
Lowest used price: $9.90
List price: $14.95
Author: David Oliver

If you like no-nonsense crime-busting, straight-shooting opinions, and offbeat humor, you’ll love this greatest-hits collection from surprise Internet sensation Chief David A. Oliver of the Brimfield Police Department . . .

He’s been called “the coolest police chief in existence,” but David Oliver says he’s just doing his job—and still doesn’t understand how his small-town police department’s Facebook page attracted a worldwide audience. Readers from as far away as Australia, Ireland, and Hong Kong, and from every state in the U.S. “stop by” daily for a virtual cup of coffee with the chief.

Whether he’s busting “mopes” (old-fashioned cop slang for criminal types), comforting a teen runaway, or promoting school safety, Oliver’s folksy and feisty style connects with readers. He tackles tough issues: The invasion of Meth and other drugs. Drunk driving. School shootings. He champions personal responsibility, and chastises politicians.

“I have a low tolerance for nonsense,” Oliver says.

This book collects the best of the chief’s politically incorrect essays, delightfully sarcastic letters to criminals, humorous crime reports, inspirational quotes, and more.

Enter the colorful world of the Brimfield PD . . . Where you do NOT want to win a pair of “silver bracelets” and “a trip to the bed-and-breakfast” . . . Where drug mopes are pursued by a “Meth Whisperer” . . . Where dispatch calls might include an APB (“All-Pig Bulletin”) . . . And where kids caught bicycling safely are issued tickets—for free ice cream. If you’re not a mope, you’ll fit right in!

David Oliver will donate all of his income from this book to the Chief Oliver Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that distributes funds to police department charitable programs and assists juvenile survivors of sexual assault.

Rip Kirby Volume 1

Rip Kirby Volume 1 Lowest new price: $31.78
Lowest used price: $31.16
List price: $49.99
Author: Alex Raymond
Brand: Brand: IDW Publishing

Presenting the first volume of Alex Raymond's modernist classic Rip Kirby from its start in 1946. Created by Alex Raymond when he was deactivated from the Marines after World War II, Rip Kirby was a fresh approach to the genre, a departure from the prevailing hard-boiled style of detective fiction. Rip Kirby was urbane and cerebral, and used scientific methods as often as he used his fists when solving crimes and mysteries. Edited and designed by Eisner Award-winner Dean Mullaney, the strips are reproduced from pristine syndicate proofs that will allow readers to see, for the first time, the full luxurious detail of Raymond's brushwork. Includes a biographical and historic essay by Brian Walker, and an introduction by Raymond biographer and authority Tom Roberts. -The Library of American Comics is the world's #1 publisher of classic newspaper comic strips, with 14 Eisner Award nominations and three wins for best book. LOAC has become "the gold standard for archival comic strip reprints... The research and articles provide insight and context, and most importantly the glorious reproduction of the material has preserved these strips for those who knew them and offers a new gateway to adventure for those discovering them for the first time." - Scoop

A Clockwork Orange (Restored Text)

A Clockwork Orange (Restored Text) Lowest new price: $14.84
Lowest used price: $11.01
List price: $24.95
Author: Anthony Burgess

A newly revised text for A Clockwork Orange’s 50th anniversary brings the work closest to its author’s intentions.

A Clockwork Orange is as brilliant, transgressive, and influential as when it was published fifty years ago. A nightmare vision of the future told in its own fantastically inventive lexicon, it has since become a classic of modern literature and the basis for Stanley Kubrick’s once-banned film, whose recent reissue has brought this revolutionary tale on modern civilization to an even wider audience. Andrew Biswell, PhD, director of the International Burgess Foundation, has taken a close look at the three varying published editions alongside the original typescript to recreate the novel as Anthony Burgess envisioned it. We publish this landmark edition with its original British cover and six of Burgess’s own illustrations. 6 illustrations

Killing the Second Dog

Killing the Second Dog Lowest new price: $9.40
Lowest used price: $59.51
List price: $15.99
Author: Marek Hlasko

"Hlasko's story comes off the page at you like a pit bull."—The Washington Post

“His writing is taut and psychologically nuanced like that of the great dime-store novelist Georges Simenon, his novelistic world as profane as Isaac Babel's.”—Wall Street Journal


"Spokesman for those who were angry and beat . . . turbulent, temperamental, and tortured."—The New York Times

"A must-read . . . piercing and compelling."—Kirkus Reviews

"A self-taught writer with an uncanny gift for narrative and dialogue."—Roman Polanski

Robert and Jacob are down-and-out Polish con men living in Israel in the 1960s. They're planning to run a scam on an American widow visiting the country. Robert, who masterminds the scheme, and Jacob, who acts it out, are tough, desperate men, adrift in the nasty underworld of Tel Aviv. Robert arranges for Jacob to run into the woman, whose heart is open; the men are hoping her wallet is too. What follows is a story of love, deception, cruelty, and shame, as Jacob pretends to fall in love with her. It's not just Jacob who's performing a role; nearly all the characters are actors in an ugly story, complete with parts for murder and suicide. Marek Hlasko's writing combines brutal realism with smoky, hardboiled dialogue in a bleak world where violence is the norm and love is often only an act.

Marek Hlasko, known as the James Dean of Eastern Europe, was exiled from Communist Poland and spent his life wandering the globe. He died in 1969 of an overdose of alcohol and sleeping pills in Wiesbaden, Germany.
