Poetry. Simply one of the most admired and imitated poets of her generation, Lisa Jarnot's third volume of poetry does what only Jarnot can do. Decidedly lyrical, always reliant on repetition and rhythm, what emergies in this book is a catalog of loves and laments: "Just the eldergrass and him, the fog, unpoliced and safe inside the train, the thoughts of rain, Apollo, and the sun..." As Stan Brackage has said of Jarnot, "[H]er words are never severed from the means that engendered them; and the consequent meanings are never detached from the meditative drama of each whole poem." Jarnot's first book SOME OTHER KIND OF MISSION, is also available from SPD.

The year is 1962. Young Lieutenant Tromp Kramer of the Trekkersburg Murder and Robbery Squad has been ordered up to Jafini, a small, dusty town in northern Zululand, to investigate the "hero's death" of the town's chief detective, Maaties Kritzinger—another Afrikaner maverick, and one with many secrets. Kramer finds himself increasingly identifying with the victim as the investigation proceeds. And then his path crosses that of Bantu Detective Sergeant Mickey Zondi, who is trying to locate a multiple killer whose summary execution will quiet the spirits of his ancestors. Despite racial differences, the two men sense a kinship . . . one that might prove dangerous in rural South Africa in the year of Nelson Mandela's imprisonment. From the Trade Paperback edition.

In the old days there were songs... Something is bothering Russel Susskit. He hates waking up to the sound of his father's coughing, the smell of diesel oil, the noise of snow machines starting up. Only Oogruk, the shaman who owns the last team of dogs in the village, understands Russel's longing for the old ways and the songs that celebrated them. But Oogruk cannot give Russel the answers he seeks; the old man can only prepare him for what he must do alone. Driven by a strange, powerful dream of a long-ago self and by a burning desire to find his own song, Russel takes Oogruk's dogs on an epic journey of self-discovery that will change his life forever.

What the HELL is the world coming to? Mayor Goodman has been assassinated. Contract killer Macheath has just married Pretty Polly Peachum and they plan to escape to a better world – but they aren’t going anywhere. Not if pickled pilchard tycoon Les Peachum and his wife have anything to do with it. See, they aren’t happy with their daughter marrying Macheath. Not one bit. Before the day is out Macheath will face the hangman’s noose and much more besides. All the while, the dogs are howling, the pier is creaking, the babes are crying, the concrete is cracking and the truth won’t stay hidden for much longer... Based on The Beggar’s Opera, John Gay’s classic musical satire, Kneehigh’s Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs) is busting with wit, wonder and weirdness. An extraordinary cast of characters shoot, hoot and shimmy their way through this twisted morality tale of our times...one that is by turns shocking, hilarious, heartfelt and absurd.

A dachshund’s resilient spirit reveals how precious each day is, in this wise, heartfelt memoir by the author of Lauren’s Story: An American Dog in Paris. Kay Pfaltz is living a quiet, simple existence with her three beloved dogs when suddenly her life is turned upside down. While coming to terms with a failed relationship, she must take her rescue dog—an adorable dachshund named Flash—in for back surgery. But when the vet tells Kay that the dog’s problem is not a disc but an inoperable tumor growing on his spine, she is devastated. She is told Flash has, at most, three weeks to live. Here begins a journey of self-discovery and recovery that opens Kay’s heart to the reality of miracles. Against all odds, her pet’s three-week prognosis becomes five and a half wonderful months of learning, loving, and finally letting go. Written in luminous prose, accompanied by poignant photos, Flash’s Song is both a heartwarming celebration of an unforgettable companion and a reminder to cherish every day we have with those we love.

"It is 4:00 a.m. the day after Rosa died. I am wide-awake from a brief and troubled sleep." This book explores the loss of a dear friend and companion-a remarkable fifteen-year-old retriever named Rosa. Many people form deep attachments to their pets. Yet we wonder how to celebrate our friendships with them and how to grieve their death. Dog-Kissed Tears is a meditative memoir woven from life with Rosa. In stories that are funny, sad, moving, and honest, Lambert Zuidervaart links his attachment to his beloved dog and his love for human friends. Familiar songs help him trace his personal journey through the adoption, life, and death of a canine companion. As Lambert works through grief and longing for Rosa, he connects memories of childhood with self-discoveries in middle age. Dog-Kissed Tears weaves a lyrical narrative of friendship, loss, and healing. Its spiritual undercurrent is subtle but profound.
