A Beautiful Puzzle book cover

A Beautiful Puzzle – Nadia's Journey from East to West
by Emilie Eklin Khair

This memoir chronicles the path of Nadia and her family from Alexandria, Egypt, to Stockbridge, Georgia. It is at its heart an immigration story filled with hopes and sorrows. It touches on issues of religious intolerance, cultural difference, and racism. It is also very much a women’s tale—of what it takes to be a supportive wife, sister, and nurturing mother, in the midst of constant flux. Nadia finds and loses great loves. She battles depression due to the harshness of the world and, oftentimes, her isolation. Her resilient spirit and her faith in God to put all the pieces of her life together, drive her forward. She is still forging ahead at 80. 84 pages, paperback

Towers of Aging
poetry by Joseph A. Amato

"Towers of Aging" is a compilation of poetry by Joseph A. Amato. Writer Emilio Degrazia wrote in his Introduction to Towers of Aging, “in his senior residence, Amato sees up close the varied course of the aging of two hundred seniors. His poems are about them while being meditations on his own… aging. The Towers… proved to be a classroom of aging for Amato and an occasion for a poetic letting go."

Buffalo Man cover

Buffalo Man – Life of a Boy Giant on the Minnesota River
a historical novel by Joseph A. Amato

"Buffalo Man" is serious fun. It is about a giant child’s growing body and awakening mind. In the spirit of Rabelais and Swift, "Buffalo Man" is the story of a Gargantuan child, aptly nicknamed “Gar”—who was born out of the sky in 1848. He lands in the pasture of a Métis trading post along the Minnesota River. The following chapters record Gar’s upbringing, baptism, adventures, and education as a physical phenomenon and a dawning prodigy. Episodic, comic, ironic, scatological, and mystical, "Buffalo Man" tells of the 1850s childhood of this Paul Bunyan of the river, living among the Métis, Natives, French-Canadians, New Englanders, and other European settlers along the Minnesota River during territorial times. A zany mix of myths, storytelling, singing, dancing, games, and jokes, "Buffalo Man" introduces the reader to Minnesota’s last giant in a world that has no more room for giants. With client-provided illustrations and hand-drawn maps, Elder Eye designed this book to bring about a feeling of books that were published in the 1850s. Crossings Press, 274 pages, paperback

The following book was created for a private organization and is not available for purchase by the general public.
