Looking for a summer read? Aunt Lute Books is proud to present three of our classic titles reissued as eBooks! Readers can now download Cancer Journals: Special Edition, Shell Shaker and Miko Kings to their reader of choice, with more titles to come. It’s the perfect time to revisit these inspiring words, or to encounter them for the first time.
The Cancer Journals: Special Edition ebook faithfully reproduces this groundbreaking work, including the six photographs of Lorde taken by Jean Weisinger and twelve of the tributes to Lorde composed after her death. The importance and relevance of this feminist meditation can hardly be overstated; more than thirty years after the original publication, frank discussions of radical mastectomy can still be deeply uncomfortable, despite gene testing that means more women than ever are faced with the choice to live with risk or without one or both of their breasts. Lorde’s work remains as a testament to her strength and clear-eyed understanding of both the personal and political realities of breast cancer. Download Cancer Journals: Special Edition here.
Shell Shaker and Miko Kings are novels by LeAnne Howe, an enrolled citizen of the Choctaw Nation who was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Native Writers’ Circle of the Americas in 2012 for her fiction, poetry, screenplays, creative non-fiction, plays, and scholarship. These two novels, like much of Howe’s work, deal with American Indian experiences, and also share a unique narrative structure where the plot unfolds in different timelines. In Shell Shaker, Howe expertly blends murder mysteries set in the 18th century and in 1991, and In Miko Kings, she follows the story of an Indian baseball team through the height of baseball fever in 1907 to the Vietnam war in 1969 to the present day. Howe’s natural humor blends seamlessly with her insightful reclamations of Indian identity in these highly readable novels. Not to be missed! Download Shell Shaker or Miko Kings.
