Cami is thrilled, until she discovers there will be two other girls joining her down the aisle.

•30 million people visit Paris each year, with roughly 20% being British or American •An estimated 50,000 Americans live in Paris

Paris-Chien Adventures of an Ex-Pat Dog Jackie Clark Mancuso Childrens: Picture Books/Travel, Ages 5–7, Grades K–2, 40 Pages, 8 x 10 27 Color Illustrations, 1 Line Drawing Four-color Interior Cloth, $17.95 (CAN $19.95) ISBN: 9780615545424 La Librairie Parisienne June U13. 3-24

With gouache illustrations of dogs, people, parks, markets, and cafes that bring Paris to life, the story of Hudson, an adventurous Norwich Terrier who moves to Paris, is as much for dog lovers and Francophiles as it is for kids. Hudson loves the new sights and smells, but when he tries to make friends, an obstacle arises—the dogs only speak French. When his mom suggests going to French class, Hudson discovers other ex-pat dogs are in the same boat. Determined to make friends, he hits the books and things begin to look up; Hudson becomes a Parisian, or rather, a Paris-chien (chien means "dog" in French). Demonstrating a message to children about how to cope with change in their lives, little Hudson's desire to make friends and thrive in his new environment is so strong that he learns a new language. French words that appear in the illustrations are defined in a glossary, so the book also serves as an introduction to learning French. Hudson's successful experience will be a consolation to any child set down in a new school, city, or country. “Hudson, a plucky terrier, can’t wait to meet some French dogs while spending a year in Paris. When he finally finds a dog park, an obstacle arises: The dogs only speak French . . . Hudson eventually absorbs the language, thanks to lessons from—who else?—a French poodle . . . The story showcases Mancuso’s playful gouache paintings of Paris and its human and canine denizens, and she gives Hudson a bold, amusing narrative voice.” —Publishers Weekly Co-op available Advertising in France Today (June) Jackie Clark Mancuso is a former art director at Parenting and Baby Talk magazines and has designed books for Weldon Owen/Pottery Barn, Sunset Books, and Nolo Press. She lives in Los Angeles.

Armed with a pencil in her ponytail, a pot-bellied pig, and a pocketful of gummy turtles, there’s nothing that fourth-grade artist Channing O'Banning can’t do. When Channing discovers that her best friend has gone crazy over the new boy at school, she fears that she's lost her best friend forever. Drawing her frustrations out in her secret sketchbook, Channing is determined to make Marco, “the best friend thief,” her worst enemy. But when they both wind up in the rainforest of Costa Rica, Channing soon discovers that Marco may be her only hope for survival. From zip-lining through the jungle and daydreaming of monster frogs to finding out what it means to “go green,” Channing not only discovers the wonders of the rainforest but learns a little about herself and the value of trusting others.

The story of 17-year-old Grace Ann Miller is that of no ordinary runaway. Touching upon topics such as mental illness, teen pregnancy, and the relationship between victims and abductors, this is Grace's account of weeks on the run, falling in love, and losing everything but her faith. After being missing for weeks, Grace turns up on the estate of international rock star Gavin Vault, half-dressed and yelling for help. Over the course of 24 hours, she holds an entire police force captive with incredulous tales of angels, demons, and war, intent on saving Gavin from lockup and her family from worry over her safety. Instead, authorities believe that Grace is ill, the victim of assault and suffering from a severely fractured mind as a result of Stockholm Syndrome. Undeterred, Grace reveals the secret existence of dark angels on Earth, an ancient prophecy, and a wretched curse steeped in biblical myth. Her claims set into motion an ages-old war, pitting sister against brother and light versus darkness, resulting in blood, death, and the loss of everything that matters. Faced with corrupt police officers, eager doctors, and accusing journalists, Grace must convince all of them that her delusions are actually the truth, with nothing but her word as proof.

Seventy writers from across the creative spectrum bring their modern sensibilities to the classic format of Aesop's 2,500-year-old fables.

Originally published by Mainstreet/Doubleday in 1998, this debut novel from an underground filmmaker uses print, photographs, drawings, news clippings, handwriting, a poem, attempted diagrams, and clip art to enhance the text, which primarily tells of a race war that happens in Florida, where the Jewish people sit in trees, the black people are run by MC Hammer, and the white people are run by Vanilla Ice. Or as the author himself described in front of a national television audience, "I wanted to write the Great American Choose-Your-Own-Adventure Novel." In actuality, it is a collection of hard-luck stories, off- and oncolor jokes, script scraps, found letters, free rhymes, drug flashbacks, and other missing scenes, all exploring the world of show business with fingers prying in the cracks and feet set lightly in the black humors of the real world. With chapters about books found in Monty Clift's basement and Tupac Shakur's 10 favorite novels, and a set of 11 suicide notes with room included for the reader's signature, the book is a one-of-a-kind post-postmodern examination of the dangers of public life from a unique voice in independent culture, one that might make William S.

•Harrington's early avant-garde work was heralded by the likes of Maya Deren and Anais Nin •He worked as an assistant for the infamous Jerry Wald and as part of the Roger Corman stable

Nice Guys Don’t Work in Hollywood The Adventures of an Aesthete in the Movie Business Curtis Harrington Biography/Film, 272 Pages, 5 x 8 20 B & W Photos Trade Paper, $19.95 (CAN $20.95) ISBN: 9781937112073 Drag City June U13. 13-24

A charming, often barbed observation of the evolution of American mainstream filmmaking over the course of its first century, this memoir chronicles the unusual, multidecade career trajectory of Curtis Harrington. Conveyed in a witty and campy style, it follows the strange arc of a man who created avant-garde films as part of Kenneth Anger’s inner circle, directed critically acclaimed and cultadored horror films like Night Tide and Games, and then descended down the "slippery slope" of television work by directing episodes of Charlie’s Angels and Dynasty. As a fast-paced view of Harrington's journey through the kaleidoscope of the movie business, it acts alternately as personal memoir and cultural history from a veteran of the entertainment business. As Harrington was living as a gay man in Hollywood, the book additionally gives a rare peek into the hidden world of what was then an elite subculture. Doubling as both a serious study of film aesthetics and a gossipy tell-all, this truly unique look at the Hollywood dream includes an unlikely cast of characters, including Dennis Hopper, Christopher Isherwood, Shelley Winters, Marilyn Monroe, Stanley Kubrick, and Aaron Spelling, as it reveals a portrait of the machinations of the film and television business. Co-op available Curtis Harrington was a film and television director whose work included experimental films, horror films, and episodic television. He was a close associate of groundbreaking cult film pioneer Kenneth Anger and is considered one of the forerunners of New Queer Cinema.

She also unveils must-have sex techniques and even explores the stigma surrounding African American women and oral sex.

Analogue Guides are a series of curated city guidebooks featuring high-quality, low-key venues distilled through the lens of the neighborhood. Each neighborhood is complemented by a concise set of sophisticated listings, including restaurants, cafĂŠs, bars, hotels, and serendipitous finds, all illustrated with photographs. The listings are supplemented by user-friendly maps to facilitate navigation of the cityscape. By highlighting aspects of the urban patina frequently lost under the corporate veil of large restaurant groups and ubiquitous chains, the mood and feel of each unique city is captured. The result is a compact, efficient manual celebrating the ingenuity of the contemporary metropolis.

Edited by Alana Stone Alana Stone is a wine specialist with an editorial background. She is fluent in five languages and has lived in eight countries. She lives in New York City.

•55,000 U.S. service members fled to Canada as conscientious objectors of the Vietnam War •In 1971, a U.S. Supreme Court decision broadened the criteria for "conscientious objection" from pacifist religious groups to include anyone who "has deeply held beliefs that cause them to oppose participation in war in any form"

The Hitchhike Mark Paul Smith Biography/History, 318 Pages, 6 x 9 16 B & W Photos, 1 B & W Illustration Trade Paper, $16.95 (CAN $18.95) ISBN: 9781938985089 Christopher Matthews Publishing Available U13. 16-24

In 1972, an officer in the U.S. Air Force hitchhiked around the world and came back a conscientious objector. Along the way, he met John Lennon, traversed the Iron Curtain, smoked opium in Iran, smuggled turquoise over the Khyber Pass into Pakistan, and found his soul in the music of Afghanistan. He faced death in a storm at sea, battled with a bout of dysentery, and escaped the clutches of a dagger-wielding Argentinian lover in India. Through the characters he encounters, the officer is shaped and ultimately transformed. This rationale for peace and understanding between all cultures is his true story, and it is a fascinating look back at a time of self-examination by the United States and its young people. "[The author] has captured all the nuances of the people, politics, illness, grit and determination that flowed through our psychiatric experiences. He shows the overly analytic approach that we thought was helpful . . . and it was not. He projects a truly genuine love of our veterans and their struggles." —H. Eugene Evans, PhD Mark Paul Smith has been a trial attorney for 31 years and is the co-owner of an art gallery. He is a former newspaper reporter and once played in a rock band on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. He lives in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

On December 7, 1973, it was found that an 18½ minute portion of one recorded tape had been erased. Nixon's longtime personal secretary, Rose Mary Woods, said she had accidentally erased the tape by pushing the wrong pedal on her tape player when answering the phone. The press ran photos showing that it was unlikely for Woods to answer the phone and keep her foot on the pedal. Later forensic analysis determined that the tape had been erased in several segments—at least five, and perhaps as many as nine.

Not only does this hilarious fictional satire unveil previously unknown secrets regarding what went on behind the plots and plans of the Nixon White House, but it corrects some of the purported truths that have been accepted for decades. Gordon Walter is a former Nixon confidant so undercover that his name never appears in a single Watergate reference and nor does he appear on any secret White House tape made throughout the administration, and yet here he reveals that he had access to everything that was going on. What did Chicago have to do with the Watergate burglary? What is the real story behind the notorious 18½-minute gap in Nixon's secret tapes? And who exactly is Gordon Walter? A unique, definitive look at one of the most famous episodes in modern American history, Walter sets the record straight and ends the cover-up for once and for all. Gordon Walter is a fictional former confidant of Richard Nixon and an author of historical fiction. He lives in New York City.

With a backdrop in actual psychiatric experience, this novel about six aging combat veterans seeking treatment in a V.A. mental ward in Montana examines the neglect of our soldiers who are suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Although more than 350,000 Americans suffered and died in the Vietnam War, many who were wounded in the jungles and rice paddies of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia found their way back to the United States. The bodies, minds, and hearts of these troops experienced a modern strain of damage that demonstrates how poorly our 19-year-old warriors, both men and women, are prepared for the psychological and spiritual aspects of their journey through war. The stories of these particular heroes, still bleeding from "a thousand daggers," are fictional—their experiences are not. Frank C. Seitz is a retired clinical and forensic psychologist who has diagnosed and treated mental illness for both civilians and military veterans. He has written 24 professional articles and three books about the human psyche. He is the author of The Collar: In His Image and Likeness. He lives in Bozeman, Montana.

With prose as stripped down and unforgiving as the Chihuahua Desert itself, this novel is at once a gritty historical adventure, a haunting story of relationships and love, and a story that dares to confront the reader with unanswerable questions. American miner Frank Holloway, reluctant witness to the Mexican Revolution, searches for answers about responsibility through his relationships ranging from a young doctor to an enigmatic woman to Pancho Villa himself. Though set in a time and place where even an impromptu piano recital has life or death consequences, Frank is no different than anyone else; he must shoulder the heavy burden of even the most unforeseen consequences, even when the result is love. “I love Sterling Bennett’s prose.

A warm and stimulating book, this text describes the India into which the Buddha was born, recounts what is known of his life and the development of his teachings, and then follows the course of Buddhism through succeeding centuries in India and Sri Lanka. Far from being a recluse concerned only with an inner mystical experience, the Buddha always involved himself closely in the social and political world of his time. If he preached detachment from many of the things by which ordinary men are tied, he did so as a means of enriching life rather than escaping it. These examinations and more make this a book to reveal the social-revolutionary potential of Buddhism.

Encouraging the study of Buddhist canonical literature in Pali, this reader aims to provide a reliable overview of Siddhattha Gotama’s teachings, allowing students to distinguish them from historical changes, additions, and mutations. Sixteen suttas have been selected here for study, each compromising a section of the book. After each sutta are blank pages where students can write down their own renderings; a word-by-word guide to the sutta, with brief grammatical annotations; and, at the end of the book, polished translations of all the suttas offered. A familiarity with basic Pali grammar is recommended. “Those who have this intuitive gift will find that by the time they complete this book, they will be able to read virtually any sutta in the Pali Nikayas.” —Bhikkhu Bodhi, author, The Numerical Discourses of the Buddha

What is it? Small Press United (SPU) is a major distribution option, for new and small publishers, from IPG, the independent press distributor renowned for bringing titles to an industry-wide level through the widest variety of sales channels. SPU shares IPG’s sales force throughout the U.S. and Canada to reach thousands of accounts, including chain and independent bookstores, online retailers, national wholesalers, library and specialty wholesalers, gift and specialty retail, museums, and more. SPU does this quicker than other distributors by bypassing the traditional long lead times needed to get books into the market.

What do I get? SPU provides publishers with: • 36 trade sales reps throughout the U.S. and Canada pitching and hand-selling titles directly to book buyers • 120 gift sales reps for applicable titles to reach specialty retail in all regional markets • Nationally recognized metadata transmission services that command availability and accuracy in customer databases throughout the industry in 4 to 6 weeks • A suite of online publisher education tools, including how-to guides for planning an effective publicity campaign, honing successful pitching techniques, writing press materials, and setting up author tours

• A list of essential media contacts for soliciting reviews • State-of-the-art reporting tools, accessible 24 hours a day, to supervise sales and inventory activity • E-book distribution to all major digital vendors • Optional print-on-demand services that can reduce a publisher’s overall cost and risk • Membership to the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA), the leading organization for publisher education, affordable marketing programs, and networking

How much does it cost? SPU was created specifically to accommodate the needs of small publishers who want to invest in the creation and promotion of their titles rather than struggle with the considerable challenges of selling and distributing themselves. Publishers pay a one-time $200 set-up fee upon signing the distribution agreement and 30% of the net sales thereafter. There are no hidden storage costs or extraneous monthly charges.
