Rose Is Rose Running on Alter Ego

"An amazing collection of cartoons . . . imaginatively drawn and smartly written, the strips encompass the poignancy, impermanence, and fleeting everyday pleasures of the daily grind. It's all here: the humor, the pathos, the banality-and it's treated with such forthright affection that the results are downright giddy."When Pat Brady puts pen to paper, readers can't resist following his original images and tight story lines. This creator pulls more material from the one-child Gumbo family than other cartoonists can with five times the number of characters and settings. That magic comes through in Brady's seventh collection, Rose is Rose Running on Alter Ego. The lively series of daily and Sunday strips revolves around Rose-devoted wife and doting mother-who, try as she might, just can't keep her biker chick fantasies totally in check. Rose never knows, as she manages her blue-collar husband, Jimbo, and their energy-fired son, Pasquale, when Vicki the Biker may show up. But when the long-haired, short-skirted babe surfaces, it's always with a breath of fresh air and a fresh take on "normal" family life. Besides appearing on the cover, Rose as Vicki shines throughout the collection, in six new full-page drawings created just for the book. Each shows the seemingly satisfied housewife's alter ego performing some mundane chore demanded by Rose's less adventurous life, while Brady's usual mix of family fun, frolic, and fancy gives Gumbo fans plenty of delight.

Karna's Alter Ego

Karna, the ill-fated hero of 'The Mahabharata', was killed by Arjuna in the final battle. (Karna-Arjuna rivalry was much like Hector vs. Achilles.) 5000 years later, we have a man named Vasu, who is quite like Karna - born illegitimate, very talented but denied all credits in life, rejected in love. He begins to identify himself with Karna. Vasu misses a medal in the Asian games, gets caught for telling an innocent lie and is overlooked for promotion. And interestingly Karna appears to him after every debacle to assuage and encourage him. It seems Vasu is Karna's alter ego; but will he, finally, break the jinx? Will he win the endgame? This is not a mythological tale but a contemporary take on mythology. SOME PRAISE : A work of fiction that tries to connect millennia past with our age, Surendra Nath's Karna's Alter Ego deserves tributes that should go to imaginative handling of an unusual plot. - Manoj Das, Author I have been wondering what the genre of this book is. Is it mythological? Or is it social, with a quotidian theme? Perhaps, spiritual or philosophical? Maybe, a thriller! It's better you read it and find out for yourself. - Ruskin Bond, Author See Reviews of this book on (

Put Your Hands In

"Exactly a century ago, the Armory Show brought European avant-garde art to New York. We are still experiencing its consequences. Among the works on view was Marcel Duchamp's notorious Nude Descending a Staircase, which a derisive critic wanted to rename 'Explosion in a Shingle Factory.' Both titles come to mind as one reads Chris Hosea's Put Your Hands In, which somehow subsumes derision and erotic energy and comes out on top. Maybe that's because 'poetry is the cruelest month,' as he says, correcting T. S. Eliot. Transfixed in midparoxysm, the poems also remind us of Samuel Beckett's line (in Watt): 'The pain not yet pleasure, the pleasure not yet pain.' One feels plunged in a wave of happening that is about to crest." -- John Ashbery, from his judge's citation for the Walt Whitman Award

This is the story of "Adam: My Literary Alter Ego." If you have read any of my secular books, you have seen repeated reference to this mystery character. Adam is a principle, more that an individual person. I am Adam. You will see various aspects of my life in the story. Adam is a confluence of a few great minds, writers and editors in their own right, whom I have been blessed to call upon to make some of my short reads a reality. The story of Adam, with all its simple intrigue, is one that touches on the lives of so many people around the world. It's a story that requires the reader to think, feel, laugh, cry, reevaluate, dream, succeed after failure, etc. It speaks to the heart of family matters, our need to find purpose in life, and make a lasting impact on the world around us. We have each been given a story to tell. And in each of our lives we have various and sundry vehicles by which to tell those stories. This Adam's story carries you through the life of a young man who was born in the sunny, beautiful Caribbean and migrated to the U.S. to find a better life. He found trials, challenges, love, fulfillment, joy, pain, family, and the determination to make this world a better place in the process. He found the need to simplify his life as he provided for his new family. Like you, this Adam had to come of age in order to find "his" story while he contributed to the lives of so many others, to help them develop their stories. Truth is, you too are Adam. Whether you are a man or woman, his story, in so many ways, is your story. Welcome into the world of Adam: My Literary Alter Ego. Don't be surprised if you learn more about yourself, than you do about him.
