Sam Benjamin & Candice Lori - The Hippie Kama Sutra

Hippies may be all about free love, but there are some difficult waters to navigate when dreadlocks and unkempt beards are involved. The Hippie Kama Sutra is a helpful guide for those who are grappling with those age old questions: Where does one find great natural supplements that might also work as an aphrodisiac? How does one find a mate with similar Birkenstock preferences? Will Patchouli hide the natural post-coital musk? All of these questions, and many more, are answered in The Hippie Kama Sutra.

A graduate of Brown University, Sam Benjamin has worked variously as an adult filmmaker, farmhand, celebrity ghostwriter, and massage therapist. He's the author of American Gangbang, one of LA Weekly’s Best Reads of 2011.

Candice Lori has spent the past decade studying yoga, organic horticulture, and bodywork at alternative communities in Hawaii, India, and California.

M.O. Walsh - My Sunshine Away

The debut novel of a major new literary talent, My Sunshine Away is at once a spellbinding mystery, a funny and tender coming-of-age story, a rich and affectionate portrait of the contemporary South, and a wise meditation on family, memory, and forgiveness. The novel juxtaposes an idyllic Louisiana childhood with the heartbreaking but ultimately hopeful story of a vicious crime, unraveling families, and an all-consuming first love. In My Sunshine Away, M.O. Walsh’s thirty-something narrator tells the story of the summer of 1989, when he was a fourteen-year-old boy in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in love with Lindy Simpson, the fifteen-year-old girl across the street. But after Lindy is raped one night while riding her bike home from track practice and no arrests are made, innocence is suddenly lost for her, him, their families, their schoolmates, and everyone along Piney Creek Road in their affluent section of Baton Rouge. The brutal crime shatters the community’s illusions, and it’s not until decades later that the narrator comes to terms with its consequences, and the part he played in it. As he recounts the events that took place that pivotal summer, the mystery of who committed the unspeakable crime is revealed.

M.O. Walsh was born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. His work has appeared in publications such as The New York Times, Oxford American, American Short Fiction, Epoch, and Best New American Voices, among others. He is a graduate of the MFA program at the University of Mississippi and is currently the director of the Creative Writing Workshop at the University of New Orleans. This is his first novel.
