LOUISIANA PLAYS by Hiram Ed Taylor is a collection of 4 plays developed in workshops or staged readings at the New Orleans Theatre Experiments Lab, a group dedicated to creating new works about Louisiana. The first play, PROPHECY a comedy about the future of mankind was given two staged readings before an audience at the Contemporary Arts Center. The second play SAVAGE PRIDE, a ghost play about survival, was also given a reading at the CAC. The third a musical about sex, BOURBON STREET had 5 songs performed at the DramaRama Festival at the CAC and then a staged presentation at LePetit Theatre du Vieux Carre. The last musical about life after death, HEAVENS BAR was presented at the Firehouse Theatre in Mobile, Alabama. Taken as a group they represent a body of work by Mr. Taylor over the past 8 years. All four scripts are comedy, although they border on serious themes and are dramatic and tragic in places. Louisiana serves as a place where life and human folly are examined in comic detail. There is an abundance of terrific roles for women in each play; especially for older actresses over 40. They seem to represent the MotherGoddess who controls the flow of the script through the mess the men characters make of their lives. Wife, mother, fortune teller, heavenly bartender (god) or whore, they are the power in each script. The scripts may not seen commercial because of their content and language. Musicals about sex with S&M numbers and Homosexuality presented as normal every day events are hard to get produced in current regional theaters concerned with their grants being cut because of the current government standards. Although Southern Baptist audiences in Mobile, Alabama loved HEAVENS BAR, script readers in other parts of the country have decided it is too much about religion for their theaters to take a chance on possibly offending someones beliefs. So, we have chosen to publish the plays as written without care who they may outrage. They are bold and they are daring and isnt that what good theater is suppose to be about? They are also highly theatrical and deserve to be on a stage performed live for an audience. But, until that time, here they are in print.

An Armenian immigrant’s journey from the author of Dreams of Bread and Fire. “Haunting and convincing . . . There’s a fairy-tale quality to the prose” (Joyce Carol Oates, The New Yorker). Zabelle begins in a suburb of Boston with the quiet death of Zabelle Chahasbanian, an elderly widow and grandmother whose history remains vastly unknown to her family. But as the story shifts back in time to Zabelle’s childhood in the waning days of Ottoman Turkey, where she survives the 1915 Armenian genocide and near starvation in the Syrian desert, an unforgettable character begins to emerge. Zabelle’s journey encompasses years in an Istanbul orphanage, a fortuitous adoption by a rich Armenian family, and an arranged marriage to an Armenian grocer who brings her to America where the often comic interactions and battles she wages are forever colored by shadows from the long-lost world of her past. “Kricorian is able to transform oral history into her own distinctive, accomplished prose. As in Toni Morrison’s work, the act of simple remembering is not enough; Zabelle, like Morrison’s best work, is a lovely and artful piece.” —Time Out New York

This volume aims to show how southerners have faced their post and constructed a self. The essays in this volume explore the different personal narratives and strategies southern authors have employed to channel the autobiographical impulse and give artistic expression to their anxieties, traumas and revelations, as well as their relationship with the region. With the discussion of different types of memoirs, this volume reflects not only the transformation that this sub-genre has undergone since the 1990s boom but also its flexibility as a popular form of life-writing.

Jane Austen as sleuth continues to delight in her latest adventure (after Jane and the Genius of the Place), which sheds new light on the author's travels in 1806. While enjoying a ramble in the Derbyshire hills near Bakewell (a town Eliza Bennett visits in Pride and Prejudice), Jane discovers the mutilated body of a young man. Jane's suspicions are roused when her escort, Mr. George Hemming, prefers to remove the unidentified corpse to Buxton, rather than Bakewell, and they increase when the body proves to be that of a woman dressed in men's clothing. Moreover, the corpse is identified as Tess Arnold, a servant at one of the area's great houses, whom Mr. Hemming should have recognized. As the compounder of stillroom remedies, Tess had a reputation as a healer, until accused of witchcraft. Rumors of ritual murder by Freemasons-who include most of the neighboring gentry-excite the local populace and jeopardize the investigation of the justice of the peace, himself a Mason. When Mr. Hemming disappears before the inquest, Jane and the justice turn for help to Lord Harold Trowbridge, a guest at the nearby ducal house of Chatsworth. Barron catches Austen's tone amazingly well. Details of early 19th-century country life of all classes ring true, while the story line is clear, yet full of surprises. The "editor's notes" that punctuate the text and old cures for various ills that open each chapter add to the charm. (Aug.)
