A vibrant tribute to the rich and unique culture of Memphis, Beale Street is the most visited tourist attraction in Tennessee. But just like the soulful blues ballads that call Beale home, the history of this downtown district echoes with hardship and heartache. From the transcendent sounds of W.C. Handy to the rubble of crumbling buildings and a miraculous rebirth, Beale Street has undergone many incarnations. In this remarkable firsthand account, author John Elkington takes readers on an incredible journey of revitalization that few believed possible when he embarked upon the task in the early 1980s. Step inside the drama of politics, the exhausting planning stages, collapsing landmarks and the hunt for the great B.B. King, and witness a living testament to the power of devotion and the enchantment of revival.

Memphis is equal parts music and food--the products of a community marked with grit and resiliency. The city's blues and soul music have lifted spirits, while barbecue has been a serious business ever since pork first entered the culinary landscape of Memphis with Spanish explorer Hernando de Soto, who brought the New World its first herd of pigs. Succulent pulled pork and ribs have become part of the fabric of life in the River City, and today they are cooked up in kitchens ranging from the internationally acclaimed, like Corky's, to the humblest of roadside dives. Told through the history of its barbecue is the story of the city of Memphis, from legendary joints like Leonard's Barbecue, where Elvis Presley hosted private parties, to lesser-known places like William's Bar-B-Q in the West Memphis, Arkansas neighborhood where wild, late-night blues juke joints served as a red-light district across the river from Beale Street in the 1950s and '60s. Sink your teeth into this rich history chock-full of interviews and insights from the city's finest pitmasters and 'cue gurus who continue the long tradition of creating art with meat and flame.

Micah McGhee has struggled all his life against prejudice and abuse. Forced to drop out of school after the death of his mother, Micah works full time to support himself and his alcoholic father. One night, on his way home from a party, Micah’s hard life ends when he’s beaten to death by a street gang. Three days later, Micah awakens with godlike abilities granted by the alien device that resurrected him. His work helping the downtrodden and performing miracles soon earns him worldwide attention—including the notice of conservative Reverend Vaughn Titus. Micah’s friends, devout Christians Antonio and Monica, along with Reverend Titus, urge Micah to use the power of the artifact to impose Biblical rule on the world. But Micah is all too familiar with how Christian law treats LGBT people, and he opposes the idea. When Antonio, Monica, and Reverend Titus gain access to the device, Micah must risk everything to stop them from forcing their religion onto everyone on earth.

Eine scharfsinnige Gesellschaftssatire, eine skurrile Zeitreise und ein spannender Familienroman Beim Durchwühlen der Gefriertruhe stößt der gelangweilte Teenager Bernie Karp zwischen Tiefkühlpizzas und Koteletts zufällig auf einen Eisblock, in dem ein bärtiger alter Mann eingefroren ist. Ein Rabbi, wie seine ebenso gelangweilten Eltern ihm erklären, der innerhalb der Familie als eine Art Talisman über Generationen weitergereicht wurde. Bei einem Stromausfall geschieht das Unglaubliche: Der Rabbi taut auf und erwacht zu neuem Leben. Der aus der Zeit gefallene heilige Mann entwickelt ungeahnte Energien und entdeckt lukrative Entfaltungsmöglichkeiten in der modernen Welt. Während der Rabbi in einem Einkaufszentrum das „Haus der Erleuchtung” gründet und gestressten Managern und frustrierten Hausfrauen das Seelenheil verkauft, glaubt Bernie, endlich einen Sinn in seinem Leben gefunden zu haben. Er findet nach und nach heraus, wie der gefrorene Geistliche von einem polnischen Schtetl des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts in eine Gefriertruhe im Memphis der Gegenwart geraten ist, und will das Familienerbe bewahren. Doch der Rabbi macht nichts als Ärger. Der vielfach preisgekrönte Autor gilt als legitimer Nachfolger von Isaac Bashevis Singer.
