Jack Kerouac shot to literary fame in 1957 with the publication of his iconic book of the Beat Generation, On the Road. Kerouac was termed "King of the Beats", a mantle he was entirely uncomfortable with. Along with Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, Gary Snyder, Michael McClure, and several others forged a new literary voice and attitude - it was a movement that often mocked and challenged the American status quo. Prior to the publication of On the Road, Kerouac had written several novels and poems. With the almost overnight success of On the Road, publishers clamored for his other books and a Kerouac industry was born. Within only a few years of being heralded as the voice of a new generation, however, Kerouac was aging, severely alcoholic, and suffering from a death of the spirit. Arguably his finest post-On the Road novel, Big Sur captures Kerouac (here named Jack Duluoz) trying to escape the clamor of beatnik adulation by retreating to Lawrence Ferlinghetti's peaceful cabin in Big Sur. What begins as a pastoral regeneration descends into a personal hell when Kerouac suffers an alcoholic breakdown. Written in Kerouac's elegantly poetic and rapid-fire prose, Big Sur is both beautiful and horrific, a clear-eyed recollection of facing down his many demons and willing himself to survive them. 1.

In 1 Samuel we continue our narrative. Samuel is the last of the judges, and with his end approaching, the people demand a king “so we can be like all the other nations.” As God tells Samuel, “it is not you they have rejected, they have rejected me as their king.” And indeed they have. The people choose a king, Saul, of the tribe of Benjamin. Saul will rule Israel for an entire generation, but although he looks like a king, he does not have the heart of a king, and the weight of kingship crushes him. As Saul descends into madness, a young man named David begins his rise. Not only is the story of David the greatest story in the Hebrew Scriptures, it is among the greatest stories in all of world literature. Join Logos Bible Study as Dr. Bill Creasy tells this incredible story as only a world-class teacher can! 1. Language: English. Narrator: uncredited.

As San Francisco descends into chaos, it's up to Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez to prove the cop's innocence. In the ninth installment of New York Times best-selling author Sheldon Siegel's iconic San Francisco series, ex-spouses Mike Daley and Rosie Fernandez have come a long way from their days as small-time defense attorneys.

Johnny corners Jones in a parking lot. Shots ring out and Jones is dead. A rookie mistake? Self-defense? A gun is found under the body - did it belong to Jones? Was it planted? No weapon is visible in body cam footage. Johnny and the other cops insist that Johnny acted in self-defense. The D.A. charges Johnny with first-degree murder. Mike takes a leave from the P.D.'s Office to represent his godson. Meanwhile, TV, cable news, Twitter, and social media explode. Police supporters clash with Black Lives Matter.

The back roads of the Northwest Georgia Appalachian hills and valleys hold a breathtaking beauty by day, but when darkness descends, there's a different story. Through twenty-four haunting tales, read the stories passed down from generation to generation, some so frightful that never a word was spokenuntil now. Discover a ghostly horse pulling a hearse through a lonely county cemetery each night, a phantom dressed in black wreaking havoc on a lonely stretch of highway, and ghostly twins held captive in an attic seeking playmates among the living. Meet the spirits of Cherokee braves and Civil War soldiers, and catch the train that rolls along a track that no longer exists. Like the mountains that hold them, these phantoms are reminders of the sad and often dark past of Georgia. The supernatural is a reality here. Experience it for yourself.
In this dazzling literary debut, Rebecca Curtis displays the gifts that make her one of the most talented writers of her generation. Her characters--young women struggling to find happiness, love, success, security, and adventure--wait tables, run away from home, fall for married men, betray their friends, and find themselves betrayed as well. In 'Hungry Self,' a young waitress descends into the basement of a seemingly ordinary Chinese restaurant; in 'Twenty Grand,' a young wife tries to recover her lost fortune; in 'Monsters,' one family's paranoia leads to a sacrifice; and in 'The Witches,' an innocent swim on prom night proves more dangerous than anyone could have imagined. With elegant prose and a wicked sense of humor, these stories reveal Curtis's provocative and uncompromising view of life, one that makes her writing so poignant and irresistible.
