Edition reliée, ID: 29215081

Jackson, Mississippi, U.S.A.: Univ Pr of Mississippi, 1999. Review The strength of Edward Cohen's vividly detailed account of growing up Jewish in the Deep South may lie in its dissection of a particular life in a particular town. But by placing under a microscope the culture of Jackson, Miss.--which fueled the imaginations of Eudora Welty, Beth Henley and Willie Morris--Cohen has produced in The Peddler's Grandson a memoir of remarkable universality. Anyone who has found himself a stranger in a strange land will find Cohen's portrait of the artist as a young outsider a sometimes painfully funny, sometimes painfully honest, always articulate exploration of childhood waters dammed off from an exclusionary mainstream. In Cohen's case, by religion, heritage and culture. In this gently told coming-of-age story, with temple and rye taking the place of Sunday school and biscuits, Cohen writes with a sensitivity that belies his lack of sentimentality. He forsakes moss-draped Southern romanticism for a detached, scrutinizing eye. It is perhaps Cohen's experience as a television and movie writer that tempers his voice. But, although his tone is clear and cool, Cohen inspires compassion with his drama of the gifted child torn between a distaste for Bible Belt anti-intellectualism and a need to assimilate among the good ol' boys. Like most of us over 40, Cohen can recall where he was when he heard Kennedy had been assassinated--between classes at a public high school: "The response of virtually all of my fellow students was jubilant cheering. Though I was myself stricken by the news, to fit in with my Southern classmates I twisted my mouth into an accommodating, agreeing smile. Sometimes he was trying to fit in as a Southerner. Later he tried to lose his Southern accent to fit in with Northeastern Jews. Such a life made for an inherent schizophrenia that must resonate for any reader who has ever worn the mask of conformity--betraying a friend to be accepted by the team or laughing at a joke to hide his identity or convictions. The price is self. And one might expect Cohen to have drowned in the swirl of opposing events. But the author emerges stronger for having learned to put away childish masks and to value his past. Now in California, Cohen writes: "I treasure my history, and, this time, I know not to change. This time I've held onto my Southern accent." You walk away from The Peddler's Grandson with a sense of the importance of making a separate peace, an understanding that a person's character can be defined, not by how he fits into the world, but by how he stands defiant in the face of a world apart. -- --John Webb, Special to USA TODAY-USA Today, September 23, 1999 . 2nd.

Very Good/Very Good. First Edition. 9.5 x 6.4 x 1.2 inches. From Library Journal Wilcox (Scream of Eagles, LJ 9/15/90) served as an Air Force information officer in the Vietnam War but desperately wanted to be a fighter pilot. In this work, he concentrates on the experience of American fighter pilots in Vietnam and the Gulf War. Following their careers through flight school and detailing their exhausting technical and physical training, the author finds that combat pilots are boisterous, rowdy, macho overachievers. Wilcox personalizes his narrative by interviewing scores of pilots and allowing them to tell their own stories, which makes for a certain amount of repetition. Though he argues that American fighter pilots are the best in the world, he fails to acknowledge that they have only been tested against second-rate air forces in Vietnam and the Gulf. Of interest to dedicated air-war aficionados but needed only by libraries that purchase everything in air-war combat. ? Stanley Itkin, Hillside P.L., New Hyde Park, N.Y.

Ride shotgun with TOPGUN pilot Dale "Snort" Snodgrass as he becomes the first student pilot ever to land an F-14 Tomcat on an aircraft carrier. Silver Star winner Rob Graeter recalls a Cold War close call as he flew his F-15 Eagle over Soviet waters--almost triggering World War III. Feel the adrenaline as Brian "Rocky" Fitzpatrick remembers test-flying the F/A-18 Hornet when it suddenly went haywire, leaving him with a crippled plane, a faulty parachute--and a very long way down.

Cold water diving is more gear-intensive than warm water diving, but the diversity of marine life and panoramic beauty of the world below the water line are a delight to explore. Try the shallow waters of BC's Hornby Island for a cold water shark dive where spiny dogfish zip around like short fused rockets and you have a good chance of spotting a blunt nosed six-gill shark. Or visit Sound Rock in Washington State, a marine protected area sheltering wolf eels, sea whip beds, various shrimps and crabs and the occasional wandering giant Pacific octopus. When it comes to quality and quantity of wrecks to explore, the Northwest is a diver's playground with warships, cargo ships, and wooden ships dating back to the 1800s.
