American Taboo  
American Taboo
by Philip Weiss
 
In 1975, a new group of Peace Corps volunteers landed on the island nation of Tonga. Among them was Deborah Gardner—a beautiful twenty-three-year-old who, in the following year, would be stabbed twenty-two times and left for dead inside her hut. Another volunteer turned himself in to the Tongan police, and many of the other Americans were sure he had committed the crime. But with the aid of the State Department, he returned home a free man. Although the story was kept quiet in the United States, Deb Gardner's death and the outlandish aftermath took on legendary proportions in Tonga.

With bravura reporting and vivid, novelistic prose, journalist Philip Weiss transforms a Polynesian legend into a singular artifact of American history and a profoundly moving human story.

What We Ache For  
What We Ache For
by Oriah
 
The creative process is essential to human nature. It is as essential as spirituality and sexuality, and in fact all three are deeply intertwined. What We Ache For is a practical book allowing readers to embrace the urgency and necessity of their creativity, whatever their medium—writing, painting, sculpture, dance, music, or film. As Oriah says, 'Doing creative work allows us to follow the thread of what we ache for into a deeper life, offering us a way to cultivate a life of making love to the world.'
