J M Barrie and the Lost Boys Book Description :

This literary biography is “a story of obsession and the search for pure childhood . . . Moving, charming, a revelation” (Los Angeles Times). J. M. Barrie, Victorian novelist, playwright, and author of Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up, led a life almost as interesting as his famous creation. Childless in his marriage, Barrie grew close to the five young boys of the Davies family, ultimately becoming their guardian and surrogate father when they were orphaned. Andrew Birkin draws extensively on a vast range of material by and about Barrie, including notebooks, memoirs, and hours of recorded interviews with the family and their circle, to describe Barrie’s life, the tragedies that shaped him, and the wonderful world of imagination he ...

The Lost Boys of the Shirley Marie Book Description :

The Lost Boys of the Shirley Marie is a collection of fictional stories that veer toward the strange and inexplicable. These stories are often magical: boys on a ship stripped of their identities until enticing siren-like voices free them, a bleeding bush hides an age old secret, a waitress gives birth to a seal. There is, also, water in these stories -- ocean water, bath water, rain water. Even in the less magical pieces, there is a haunting strangeness: a woman jumps to her death, a beached whale rots at the edge of a town, a girl at fat camp befriends a boy who reveals to her his collection of taxidermy animals, dressed up as humans, including a troupe of banjo playing squirrels. Ultimately, these strange stories are thread together by marginalize...

Lost Boy Book Description :

From the national bestselling author of Alice comes a familiar story with a dark hook—a tale about Peter Pan and the friend who became his nemesis, a nemesis who may not be the blackhearted villain Peter says he is… There is one version of my story that everyone knows. And then there is the truth. This is how it happened. How I went from being Peter Pan’s first—and favorite—lost boy to his greatest enemy. Peter brought me to his island because there were no rules and no grownups to make us mind. He brought boys from the Other Place to join in the fun, but Peter's idea of fun is sharper than a pirate’s sword. Because it’s never been all fun and games on the island. Our neighbors are pirates and monsters. Our toys are knife and stick and ...

The Lost Boys Book Description :

Daniel Groves presents a debut collection of tightly rhymed poems that, through adherence to form, unlock a power in language to surprise and illuminate—a power too often dormant in writing that eschews these conventions. Enchanted by the wit and distance of his canonical predecessors, Groves rhymes “Diet Pepsi” with “catalepsy” and “Guido” with “credo,” and takes this work from irony to introspection in the course of a few lines. Framed as meditations that playfully depart from acts of photocopying, or shelving journals in a library, or interstate travel by bus, these poems represent an acerbic inner life but offer visceral satisfactions....
