A punch in the face of the puritanism and conservatism he raged against, My Life and Loves is the highly-charged, erotic autobiography of Frank Harris (1856-1931), an Irish writer and editor who founded Pearson's Magazine in the United States (1914-1918). When first published, the book elicited hostile criticism because of its blunt and frank detail of Harris's sexual exploits, beginning in his childhood. A biographer of Oscar Wilde and Shakespeare, Harris fought the U.S. government and postal service over the content of his publications - battles included in My Life and Loves along with Harris's blunt, colorful depictions of his sexual exploits with willing Victorian Age debutantes. My Life and Loves remains a landmark in erotic literature, as relevant and provocative today as it was when first privately printed in Paris.
As published privately by Harris between 1922 and 1927, and by Jack Kahane's Obelisk Press in 1931, the work consisted of four volumes, illustrated with many drawings and photographs of nude women.

Patricias story is deeper than a love story; it is a story about love; a story about continuing to believe in the mystery and glory of love, even in the face of abuse, lies, and broken promises. Its also a story about tenacious courage, about choosing to view life and people through rose-colored glasses, and believing that even when those we trust fail us: love never does. Eight divorces have not shaken this belief one bit. Patricias special gift is to see and believe the best in us rather than the worst in us, even in those who tried to destroy that belief. She simply ignores useless lies and.

The Nigerian people hold strong ties to their families, clans, tribes, and country, and it doesn't take long for foreign residents to feel the same bond. So in 1962, when twenty-one-year-old Catherine Onyemelukwe launches her two-year adventure with the brand-new Peace Corps, she has no idea what the African country has in store. Catherine's heartfelt memoir revisits her two years overseas that become twenty-four, during which her experiences brim with friendships, students, travels around the country, and love. It recalls how her future Nigerian husband contrives to meet her, their falling for each other, and their controversial wedding that becomes world news and a spread in "Life Magazine." It is also a deep look into the coups and wars that leave their family without electricity and running water, as they struggle to keep their children safe and healthy. When it becomes too much, they flee to the United States, only to be greeted with scorn for their mixed-race children. This story of adapting to cultures, taking risks, surviving, and embracing differences will inspire the reader to venture beyond perceived horizons and see the world in a whole new light.

When the poet Maxwell Bodenheim and his common-law wife, Ruth Fagan, were found brutally murdered by the insane man whose single room they were sharing, the press made much of the sensation. Persons safely distant from Bodenheim’s bitter struggle for existence, who thought of him merely as a drunken shambles, felt, somewhat smugly, he had met a suitable end. But Bodenheim’s funeral was richly attended by poets and artists who know better. They knew that to the last minute of his precarious life Bodenheim was a working writer and a productive poet, though he often had no place but a doorstep to lay his head. They came with tears instead of flowers to say goodbye. Alfred Kreymbourg read an eloquent tribute to Max’s undying sense of the beauty of life. Maxwell Bodenheim knew Greenwich Village as no one else did, because he was Greenwich Village. Its waywardness, its dreams, its love life, were his to cherish. These memoirs are filled with irony, with compassion, with love, laughter and unquenchable dignity. He had intended to write a summing-up, but death, most grotesquely, intervened. The publishers are proud to present Maxwell Bodenheim’s last and most fascinating work.
