Girl Strangler : The True Story of Serial Killer Dana Sue Gray

by Erin Pierce

Most female serial killers use poison or a gun to dispose of their victims. Dana Sue Gray was one of the few who was a “hands on” killer, strangling numerous elderly women in the Southern California area in the early 1990s.

But what led her to go on this murderous rampage that one police detective described as “the most brutal crimes I’ve ever seen”? Dana was a compulsive “shopping addict” who would steal her victims credit cards and speed off to the nearest shopping mall to indulge in her habit. A lifelong thrill-seeker and horror movie fan, Dana would succumb to her base impulses and become arguably the most violent female serial killer in modern times.

Agents of the Marketplace: Recovering the Role of Editors in the Careers of Nineteenth-Century American Authors

by David W. Johnson

The purpose of this book is to recover the agency (in some cases, identities) of editors by examining their roles in the careers of three nineteenth-century canonical authors: Henry David Thoreau, Sara Payson Willis (Fanny Fern), and Walt Whitman. In the study, I argue that critics and literary historians often have ignored the agency of editors, their several roles in bringing canonical works to print, and the possibility of their influence on the authors themselves. The result has been that editors’ involvement in literary products has been allowed to remain in the background of scholarship, while the importance of authors has been foregrounded.

At stake is whether the study of nineteenth-century literature is to gain a more complete understanding of processesâ??and the agents of these processesâ??by which canonical authors developed their craft, and their works came to be published. In my opinion, recovering the agency of editors provides a valuable perspective that is missing from most criticism of nineteenth-century authors. Without a perspective that includes the agency of editors and the roles they play in the publication process, our understanding of how canonical literary works such as Walden, Ruth Hall, and Leaves of Grass came to print is incomplete.

Important to the broader application of my argument to nineteenth-century authors is that the three authors considered here interacted with the marketplace and its agents in quite different ways. Thoreau resisted not only the necessity of the marketplace, but also its agentsâ??with the exception of newspaper editor Horace Greeley, who acted as Thoreau’s literary agent. When Sara Payson Willis Farrington turned in desperation to writing for newspapers, she recognized the need to engage with the marketplace and soon entered into a successful and profitable arrangement with the editor of the New York Ledger, Robert Bonner. By self-publishing and self-promoting Leaves of Grass, Walt Whitman circumvented the marketplace to a considerable extent, yet employed, in marketing his book of poetry, techniques that he learned as a penny press editor in New York City. Because of the variety of relationships to the marketplace enacted by these three canonical authors, there is a likelihood that the conclusions of this study may

apply to nineteenth-century authors not included here.

Of Human Clay: the making and breaking of a nun

by Aimee Wise

With humor and discernment, Wise invites the reader into her Irish Catholic childhood, reveals candid insights into her life as a young nun, and her unique experiences in Africa as a medical missionaryâ??a vocation that had come to define her. Over the course of seventeen months in 1970s rural Malawi, the steady accumulation of unrelenting conflictsâ??a clash of world views, a patriarchal church, and a sensual but innocent first loveâ??all propel Sister Aimee through a cascade of crises and losses she could never have anticipated.



By The Way, Do You Love Me?: Letters From The Beginning Of A Life Long Love

by Jerry Alexander

About a year ago, while going through some old boxes of my mother’s, I came across a bundle of letters, tied with a dilapidated and faded blue ribbon. Looking at them, it became obvious that they were letters from my Dad to my Mother, but I was really shocked when I saw that the first postmark was dated “May 20th,1932”.

I thumbed through the thick stack of letters and discovered that they were ALL dated 1932, and numbered on the front in pencil with what I recognized as my mother’s handwriting. I read the first few and realized that these were the letters that my Dad had sent my Mother the very first year he had known her, starting a few days after they had met at a dance. They were numbered from 1 to 111, and had all been written during a seven month period! That is more than one letter every other day.

I read them through, deciphering my Dad’s scrawl on those that weren’t typewritten. Slowly, some of the pieces of history of my family, and indeed those times in Texas and American history came to light.

It was during the Great Depression when my parents met. My Father had just turned 24 years old. My Mother was 20, just a little over a month shy of turning 21.

I never really knew much about my parents as I was growing up. Probably most of us don’t.

These letters are now over 80 years old, and I am going to share them with you. Also included are some photographs of my Mother and Dad and drawings that he drew for her from that period. There are some scans of the actual letters and postcards, but all are transcribed to make for easier reading.

I think you will find that courtship, jealousy, family values, work ethic, gender roles, proper etiquette, entertainment, racism, anti-Semitism and the effect of the Great Depression of the early 1930’s in the United States and deep South Texas will be as surprising to you as they were to me.
