Jack has a grumpy grandpa, and he calls him that, even though he’s not supposed to. But it’s true. Grandpa is grumpy—and a little scary, too. He has hair where other people do not have hair, and his teeth don’t stay in his mouth. You’d have to be crazy to live with Grandpa . . . or as brave as a lion tamer, like Jack’s aunt and uncle. But the truth is, Grandpa didn’t always have hair and teeth in weird places. In fact, Grandpa wasn’t even always grumpy. A book that closes the generation gap one little bit, Grumpy Grandpa captures childhood and grandpa-hood with humor, hyperbole, and heart

Fiction. "While the new sentence—the prose wing of Language writing—strips narrative down to pointed sets of shifting referents, Lu, in her debut, knowingly resuscitates it, creating a precise and humorous elegy to the self, and to its self-subversions. This quasi-bildungsroman charts the emergence of an 'I' (not 'P' and not 'Pamela,' though the three characters do appear together) into a 20-something Bay Area, with memories of a suburban childhood close on her heels.... This is a book of extraordinary philosophical subtlety and clarity, one that manages to tell a beautiful story in spite of itself"—Publishers Weekly.

Winner of the Harvey & Ignatz Awards for Best Graphic Novel. "Indie Book of the Year"-- Wizard Magazine "Most indie film should be this good."-- Entertainment Weekly "A master of the slice-of-life indie comic genre."-- Publishers Weekly "A drama and a thriller that plays to the real strength of the medium."-- Variety "Carefully and cleverly structured. ... Such an accomplishment is no easy trick."-- Time "If Brian Bendis is comics' David Mamet, and Grant Morrison its David Cronenberg, then Alex Robinson is its Robert Altman."-- Matt Singer, The Village Voice "Brilliant ... Robinson's work has the potential to appeal to comics fans who don't normally read "alternative"comics and to readers who normally avoid comics entirely. Highly recommended."-- Library Journal "I've read a lot of excellent graphic novels this year, but I haven't read a better one than Tricked. A wonderful piece of work about life and the mistakes we make and the demons that drive us."-- Heidi MacDonald, Comics Buyer's Guide Alex Robinson, "the master of true-to-life relationship drama"(Library Journal), has created another tour de force. Tricked follows the lives of six people -- a reclusive rock legend, a heartbroken waitress, a counterfeiter, an obsessive crank, a lost daughter, and a frustrated lover -- whose lives are unconnected until an act of violence brings them spiraling in on each other. Combining intriguing characters with a story structure that is both complex and innovative, Tricked is not to be missed. Now in an all-new hardcover edition with a brand new cover to boot!

“Riveting.” -Publishers Weekly Ron Archer’s story will inspire you to trust God with the impediments facing you, whether big or small. Born to a biracial teenage mother forced by poverty to become a call girl, he survived an abortion his mother’s pimp forced her to have. Abused by some, bullied by others, and rejected by a stepfather, Ron was a stutterer, a bed-wetter, and an overweight kid who banged his head against the wall to knock himself to sleep at night. At age ten, he decided to take his own life. The gun did not fire. Afterward, a schoolteacher and a widowed neighbor stepped in and shared the love of God with him—forever changing his life. In this message-driven memoir, Archer shows readers how regardless of background and experiences, God can transform your pain into power and your misery into ministry. In What Belief Can Do, readers will discover: • Everything we go through in life is a down payment on our destiny. • We are conceived and born with a divine design. • Loving, caring people who mentor a child can change his or her life. • Sometimes our greatest blessings are contained in our greatest challenges.
