"An amazing collection of cartoons . . . imaginatively drawn and smartly written, the strips encompass the poignancy, impermanence, and fleeting everyday pleasures of the daily grind. It's all here: the humor, the pathos, the banality-and it's treated with such forthright affection that the results are downright giddy."When Pat Brady puts pen to paper, readers can't resist following his original images and tight story lines. This creator pulls more material from the one-child Gumbo family than other cartoonists can with five times the number of characters and settings. That magic comes through in Brady's seventh collection, Rose is Rose Running on Alter Ego. The lively series of daily and Sunday strips revolves around Rose-devoted wife and doting mother-who, try as she might, just can't keep her biker chick fantasies totally in check. Rose never knows, as she manages her blue-collar husband, Jimbo, and their energy-fired son, Pasquale, when Vicki the Biker may show up. But when the long-haired, short-skirted babe surfaces, it's always with a breath of fresh air and a fresh take on "normal" family life. Besides appearing on the cover, Rose as Vicki shines throughout the collection, in six new full-page drawings created just for the book. Each shows the seemingly satisfied housewife's alter ego performing some mundane chore demanded by Rose's less adventurous life, while Brady's usual mix of family fun, frolic, and fancy gives Gumbo fans plenty of delight.

The art combines dreams and reality as the stars live out their lives in sweeping fashion and the artwork begs to be cherished and collected. There are a number of reasons cartoon legend Charles Schulz described himself as an "ardent admirer" of Rose is Rose. From its five-time nomination as Best Newspaper Comic Strip to its appearance in more than 600 newspapers, Pat Brady and Don Wimmer's cartoon creation Rose is Rose is evocative of Schulz's own revered strip where daydreams slightly blur the edges of reality. Inside Rose is Rose: Not Just Another Sweetheart Deal, life in the Gumbo family is anything but ordinary. While gentle son Pasquale imagines toe-biting, bathtub drain--residing monsters, his mother, Rose, might morph into her leather-clad alter ego biker-chick persona, Vicki. Not to be outdone, here comes doting father and husband, Jimbo, riding in on his stallion with his romantically chivalrous ways. And let's not forget furry feline pet Peekaboo, who has fantasies of her own about her cute human counterparts. This Rose is Rose collection features more than 40 weeks of Gumbo family amusement and artwork. Brady is the recipient of cartooning's highest honor, the Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year for 2004 by the National Cartoonists Society.

In the title novel, two friends fall in love with each other's teenage sons, and these passions last for years, until the women end them, vowing a respectable old age. In Victoria and the Staveneys, a young woman gives birth to a child of mixed race and struggles with feelings of estrangement as her daughter gets drawn into a world of white privilege. The Reason for It traces the birth, faltering, and decline of an ancient culture, with enlightening modern resonances. A Love Child features a World War II soldier who believes he has fathered a love child during a fleeting wartime romance and cannot be convinced otherwise.
