Explanation of the Book:

The mountain is a lonely place. Welcome to Sourwood, a small Kentucky town inhabited by men and women unique and yet eerily familiar. Among its joyful and tragic citizens we meet the crafty, spirited Caleb and his curious younger brother; Pearl, a suspected witch, and her sheltered daughter, Thanie; superstitious Eli; and the doomed orphan Girty. In Sourwood, the mountain is both a keeper of secrets and an imposing, isolating presence, shaping the lives of all who live in its shadow. Strong in both the voice and sensibilities of Appalachia, the stories in Miss America Kissed Caleb are at turns heartbreaking and hilarious. In the title story, young Caleb turns over his hard-earned dime to the war effort when he receives a coaxing kiss from Miss America, who sweeps into Sourwood by train, "pretty as a night moth." Caleb and his brother share in the thrills and uncertainties of growing up, making an accidental visit to a brothel in "Fourth of July" and taming a "high society" pooch in "The Jimson Dog." These stories invoke a place and a time that have long passed -- a way of living nearly extinct -- yet the beauty of the language and the truth revealed in the characters' everyday lives continue to resonate with modern readers.

Explanation of the Book:

After having served his country for twelve years, four of which included duty during those turbulent years of the Civil War, William “Pap” Paprich has decided to retire from the restraints of military life. With no plans other than to travel the United States wherever the wind takes him, he decides to visit the one man he can honestly say he owes his life to, a half-breed Indian scout named Yanni Two Feathers. Pap finds his friend embroiled in a struggle with local ruffians who dislike the fact that he served the Union rather than their beloved Confederacy. Just as things come to a boil, Pap gets a telegram from his sister begging for help. The family’s ranch and others surrounding it have been plagued with murders and rustled cattle by men who seemingly vanish into thin air. The local law enforcement is either unwilling or unable to bring justice to the lawlessness. Plans are altered, and together William and Yanni make their way to Lawrence, Kansas, where skills once learned during the War Between the States will have to be called forth for the family’s survival.

Explanation of the Book:

Beginning at the end of the 1980s, after the reform in China, there was a boom of working class. The first generation of workers was called "first generation migrants." Most of their children, the "second generation workers" in this novel, are teenagers about 16 or 17 years old who are graduating high school. They must deal with work, love, and marriage, even though they are still in their teens. Due to the restriction of household registration, most of these teenage second generation workers have no choice but to leave the city they grew up and go back to their hometowns. Although they grew up in the city, they don't have their household registration to remain in the city. If they do manage to find white-collar jobs, they are still called "second generation migrants." This story tells about these second generation Children of the Drifters, and is filled with details about their lives, loves, and worries.

Explanation of the Book:

During the late 1950s and early 1960s, after the shock of Elvis Presley and before the Beatles spearheaded the British Invasion, fourteen gifted young songwriters huddled in midtown Manhattan's legendary Brill Building and a warren of offices a bit farther uptown and composed some of the most beguiling and enduring entries in the Great American Songbook. Always Magic in the Air is the first thorough history of these renowned songwriters-tunesmiths who melded black, white, and Latino sounds, integrated audiences before America desegregated its schools, and brought a new social consciousness to pop music.

Explanation of the Book:

On 14 November 1952, the New Musical Express published the first British singles chart. In the 65 years since, 21922 records have entered the top 40. This book lists the 1000 biggest of those hits. The list is calculated solely from chart positions, not sales figures. These are the biggest chart performers, not the biggest sellers. Indeed, ""Candle In The Wind 1997"" by Elton John, the biggest selling single ever in the UK, is only at no. 182 in this list. The ranking is compiled from the weekly charts starting with that first chart in November 1952 up to the last chart published before the 65th anniversary, the one dated 16 November 2017 and first revealed on 10 November.
