    Fifteen year old Josh is facing trials that seem far removed from our time, but were very real to many people during the Great Depression. He has a deep love for music and is very talented, and he and his friend Howie find an escape when they play together. However, they only get to practice some days after school, for times are hard and Josh's family was forced to sell their piano to pay for food and other necessities. After Josh's father loses his job, his depression turns to anger, which he often directs at Josh. Between his mother ironing clothes all day and Josh delivering papers for three hours every morning, the family has barely enough to keep themselves fed. After an especially hurtful fight, Josh decides to leave home, and he and Howie quickly form a plan to travel around as musicians. Josh's fragile ten-year old brother, Joey, hears of their plans, and he is determined to accompany them, despite Josh's firm objections. An unforeseen tragedy strikes the trio, and their lives are changed forever. This hardship sparks a deeply moving trail of tears, shame, guilt, sickness, responsibility, and struggle to survive.

    These twelve plays by Dorothy L. Sayers are a theatrical representation of the Four Gospels: Kings in Judaea, The King’s Herald, A Certain Nobleman, The Heirs to the Kingdom, The Bread of Heaven, The Feast of Tabernacles, The Light and the Life, Royal Progress, The King’s Supper, The Princes of This World, King of Sorrows, and The King Comes to His Own. Although portraying the life and acts of Jesus, the plays use modern English conveyed with literary style. A narrator character, named the “Evangelist” ties the scenes together, incorporating Scripture paraphrases. Originally produced for BBC Radio, these cycle plays have been reproduced here much the same as when first presented. Each play includes a list of characters, stage directions, and a “Notes” section describing an overview of the play’s style and how each character should be presented. Could be produced as Reader’s Theater or as a play--either each individually or as a 12-piece unit. Would be a great set of plays for a year-long co-op theater class. Could also be read devotionally during the Twelve Days of Christmas, or as part of Lent (as C.S. Lewis was in the habit of doing). Includes a 28-page introduction by the author. 6” x 9”, 327 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    Sir Thomas Malory's Le Morte d' Arthur is one of the greatest epics of the fifteenth century. His chivalric tales of King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, Sir Lancelot, and Merlin spawned many adaptations that continue to entertain audiences today. Death of King Arthur is one such retelling, by the historian Peter Ackroyd. Ackroyd states in the beginning of the book, "I have tried my best to convert Malory's sonorous and exhilarating prose into a more contemporary idiom…I have also chosen to abbreviate the narrative in pursuit of clarity and simplicity." Ackroyd is a great storyteller; his "translation" is very readable and stays true to the spirit of Malory's original work. A must-read for any fan of Arthurian legends. 316 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa
