Book Summary: The award-winning memoir of life in an LA street gang from the acclaimed Chicano author and former Los Angeles Poet Laureate: “Fierce, and fearless” (The New York Times). Luis J. Rodríguez joined his first gang at age eleven. As a teenager, he witnessed the rise of some of the most notorious cliques in Southern California. He grew up knowing only a life of violence—one that revolved around drugs, gang wars, and police brutality. But unlike most of those around him, Rodríguez found a way out when art, writing, and political activism gave him a new path—and an escape from self-destruction. Always Running spares no detail in its vivid, brutally honest portrayal of street life and violence, and it stands as a powerful and unforgettable testimonial of gang life by one of the most acclaimed Chicano writers of his generation. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Luis J. Rodríguez including rare images from the author’s personal collection.

Book Summary: Always Running By: Emilio Fuentes III In Always Running, Emilio Fuentes III brings a unique and first-person account of living with a traumatic brain injury. The experiences he writes about deal with the time he spent at a transitional learning center helping patients with TBI’s regain whatever independence their cognitive function will allow. He began documenting his journey to recovery from the first day he walked through the doors of that facility. Emilio shares his experiences as viewed through his eyes, the eyes of someone with an invisible disability. His story is raw and unfiltered, filled with humor and pathos. His observations of how the more severe TBI patients were sometimes treated by the staff are enlightening, which made him appreciate his higher level of functioning. In this revealing autobiography, you are inside the mind of someone with a traumatic brain injury as they navigate their path into a new reality. Someone with a bright future but because of one poor decision, the trajectory of his life changed forever. This story is more than his journey to recovery, it is about rebirth. A second chance at life. Perhaps not like the previous life, but life, nonetheless.

Book Summary: From the best-selling author of The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and After Dark, a rich and revelatory memoir about writing and running, and the integral impact both have made on his life. In 1982, having sold his jazz bar to devote himself to writing, Haruki Murakami began running to keep fit. A year later, he’d completed a solo course from Athens to Marathon, and now, after dozens of such races, not to mention triathlons and a slew of critically acclaimed books, he reflects upon the influence the sport has had on his life and–even more important–on his writing. Equal parts training log, travelogue, and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers his four-month preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon and includes settings ranging from Tokyo’s Jingu Gaien gardens, where he once shared the course with an Olympian, to the Charles River in Boston among young women who outpace him. Through this marvellous lens of sport emerges a cornucopia of memories and insights: the eureka moment when he decided to become a writer, his greatest triumphs and disappointments, his passion for vintage LPs, and the experience, after the age of fifty, of seeing his race times improve and then fall back. By turns funny and sobering, playful and philosophical, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running is both for fans of this masterful yet guardedly private writer and for the exploding population of athletes who find similar satisfaction in distance running.

Book Summary: A mesmerizing collection of poems of urban pain and immigrant alienation, humming with a current of genuine beauty and the pulse of lifeThe Concrete River’s poems are dispatches from city corners that CNN viewers never see, that few dare visit, and that fewer still manage to escape. Rodríguez sings corridos of barrios and busted Chicanos trying to make it in L.A. and Chicago, from ballads of Watts’s broken glass to blues played alongside a tequila bottle under an elevated train. But the music also captures moments of true beauty amid the hard urban surfaces, where the cries of the ’hood “deliver sacrifices / of sound and flesh, / as a mother’s milk flows,” while love and community offer renewed hope. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Luis J. Rodríguez including rare images from the author’s personal collection.
