We Am The Song

Richard Prism Dog Ear Publishing Fiction

We are the dangerous, problematic and troubled species threatening the health and equilbrium of the whole Earth. We are the bearers of heroic myths and legends of explanation and survival of a complex, bloody past – which, as William Faulkner said “is not even past.” We are the oblivious couriers of indecipherable ancient messages, speakers of lonely lives of the spirit we cannot share. Meanwhile there are individual lives to be led, being born, growing, thriving, loving, surviving and dying to be negotiated, dreams to pursue in a world of change coming at us at the speed of light. So what remains of We Am, if We ever was ? Can it be recreated ?

We Are Market Basket

Daniel Korschun HarperChristian + ORM Business & Economics

What if a company were so treasured and trusted that people literally took to the streets—by the thousands—to save it? That company is Market Basket, a popular New England supermarket chain. With its arresting firsthand accounts from the streets and executive suites, We Are Market Basket is as inspiring as it is instructive. What is it about Market Basket and its leader that provokes such ferocious loyalty? How does a company spread across three states maintain a culture that embraces everyone—from cashier to customer—as family? Can a company really become an industry leader by prioritizing stakeholders over shareholders? After long-time CEO Arthur T. Demoulas was ousted by his cousin Arthur S. Demoulas, the company's managers and rank-and-file workers struck back. Risking their own livelihoods to restore the job of their beloved boss they walked out, but they didn't walk far. The national media and experts were stunned by the unprecedented defense of an executive. All openly challenged the Market Basket board of directors to make things right. In the end: They were joined by loyal customers at protest rallies—leaving stores empty. Suppliers and vendors stopped deliveries—rendering shelves bare. Politicians were forced to take sides. Set against a backdrop of bad blood and corporate greed, We Are Market Basket is a page-turner that chronicles the epic rise, fall, and redemption of this iconic and uniquely American company.

The Way We Die Now

Michael Z. Lewin Pan Macmillan Fiction

It wasn't bad enough that a ten-year-old kid had beaten him at basketball in the morning. Next Albert Samson was being badgered by a humourless prospective client. Was he, in fact, the cheapest private detective in Indianapolis? Did his daily rate include expenses or did he try to claim those on top? Expenses were indeed extra, but Samson was still a bargain and he got the case. The client's son-in-law had been charged with murder. But she didn't want him exonerated - he had certainly pulled the trigger. What she wanted was evidence she could use to make her daughter see what a dead loss her Vietnam vet husband was. Sure, he'd been a hero over there, but this was Indianapolis, and real life, and now. Real life is simple, right? Not this time, not when Samson discovers that his questions do not lead to satisfactory, or safe, answers.
