What does it mean to be white? This remains the question at large in the continued effort to examine how white racial identity is constructed and how systems of white privilege operate in everyday life. White Out brings together the original work of leading scholars across the disciplines of sociology, philosophy, history, and anthropology to give readers an important and cutting-edge study of "whiteness".
From the bestselling author of the Annabelle Schwartzman series comes a chilling story of a woman with a forgotten past and a town with dark secrets. After surviving a car accident on an icy road in Hagen, North Dakota, Lily Baker regains consciousness with no idea where or who she is. Scattered Bible verses and the image of a man lying in a pool of blood haunt her memory. The same night of the accident, a young woman is murdered and tossed in a dumpster. Kylie Milliard, Hagen's only detective, doesn't immediately recognize the victim, but Kylie soon discovers that Lily and the dead woman share a dark past...if only Lily could remember what it was. Lily and Kylie both want answers. But Kylie has to play by the book. Lily has to play it safe. And the more Lily learns about her identity, the more she fears the truth.
Steven White is a perennial new-kid-in-town, avid snowboarder and occasional "white" liar. But at his new school, when his plan for instant popularity backfires, a humbled pro-snowboarder gives him a crash course in being himself. Seventh-grader Steven White's family has just moved - again - this time to Oregon. The upside is that there is lots of great snowboarding. But Steven dreads having to start over in yet another new school. So he devises a scheme to instantly boost his popularity: he tells his classmates that he's champion snowboarder Cody White's cousin and the friends will come to him. Of course it's only a matter of time before the White lie unravels, the kids shun him, and Steven finds himself facing the worst, loneliest Winter Break ever. Then he meets pro-snowboarder D-Day Davis on the slopes. D-Day is hiding out after a disastrous X-Games appearance. While Steven yearns to be a pro snowboarder, D-Day just wants to be a normal teenager again. But Steven doesn't respect Danny's request to stay under the radar, and soon their friendship is in jeopardy. Can D-Day show Steven that all he needs to do is be himself? And can Steven help his hero get his mojo back?

Book Short Story Press Presents White-Out Man Description/Summary:
Short Story Press Presents White-Out Man by Janet Marie Lewis Everyone it seems wonders, at some point in their lives, what will happen when they eventually stand before the “Pearly Gates”? One man seems stuck somewhere between, in a groundhog effect, approaching and re-approaching the Gates in a repeatedly futile attempt to attain a bottle of white-out. In order to follow standard protocol, the clerk must annotate on the requisition form what exactly the white-out is being used for. Peter is his name, and he has seen the White-Out Man many times over the past months and his patience is running thin. As he inquires of the reasoning behind the request, White-Out Man becomes irate and difficult, overheard by Peter’s Boss who intervenes on the intercom. White-Out Man is haggard, and doesn’t seem to realize that the same old mistakes can’t be covered up over, and over again. The file-purging time approaches yet again, and he has discovered that before he can purge, his form needs to be clean, hence the necessity of the white-out. He also doesn’t recognize that he is in impeding danger of being hauled down the seemingly endless stairs to the “Sub-levels”. Poor White-Out Man, he knows what lies down in the Sub-levels; but is unsure if there is any way to avoid them other than to white-out his mistakes time and again. This rare metaphorical work, White-Out Man, broaches age-old questions of humanity in a purely science fiction manner that most people today can relate to. In a world that is all but overcome by technology and requisite red tape, where not even a simple pen can be accessed without filling out a form, it seems all but impossible to maintain any semblance of composure. The question is… will we be faced with these same or similar endless circles of frustration and bureaucracy even after our time on Earth is complete? Short Story Press publishes short stories written by everyday writers.
THE FOURTH INSTALMENT IN THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING DARK ICELAND SERIES OVER A MILLION COPIES SOLD WORLDWIDE When the body of a young woman is found dead beneath the cliffs of the deserted Icelandic village of Kálfshamarvík, Ari Thór Arason uncovers a startling and terrifying connection to an earlier series of deaths, as the killer remains on the loose… ‘Jonasson's books have breathed new life into Nordic noir' Sunday Express ‘Jónasson skillfully alternates points of view and shifts of time … The action builds to a shattering climax' Publishers Weekly Two days before Christmas, a young woman is found dead beneath the cliffs of the deserted village of Kálfshamarvík. Did she jump, or did something more sinister take place beneath the lighthouse and the abandoned old house on the remote rocky outcrop? With winter closing in and the snow falling relentlessly, Ari Thór Arason discovers that the victim's mother and young sister also lost their lives in this same spot, twenty-five years earlier. As the dark history and its secrets of the village are unveiled, and the death toll begins to rise, the Siglufjordur detectives must race against the clock to find the killer, before another tragedy takes place. Dark, chilling and complex, Whiteout is a haunting, atmospheric and stunningly plotted thriller from one of Iceland's bestselling crime writers. ‘Traditional and beautifully finessed …morally more equivocal than most traditional whodunnits, and it offers alluring glimpses of darker, and infinitely more threatening horizons' Andrew Taylor, Independent ‘Jonasson has come up with a bleak plot and characters, but his evocation of Iceland's chilly landscape is hard to put down' The Sunday Times Crime Club Laura Wilson, Guardian ‘A chiller of a thriller' Carol Memmott, Washington Post ‘Required reading' New York Post ‘Puts a lively, sophisticated spin on the Agatha Christie model, taking it down intriguing dark alleys' Kirkus Reviews ‘The best sort of gloomy storytelling' Chicago Tribune ‘The prose is stark and minimal, the mood dank and frost-tipped. It's also bleakly brilliant, although perhaps best read with a warming shot of whisky by your side' Claire Allfree, Metro ‘A classic crime story seen through a uniquely Icelandic lens … first rate and highly recommended' Lee Child ‘Ragnar Jónasson writes with a chilling, poetic beauty - a must-read' Peter James ‘A modern take on an Agatha Christie-style mystery, as twisty as any slalom' Ian Rankin ‘Seductive … Ragnar does claustrophobia beautifully' Ann Cleaves ‘Whiteout, in an excellently smooth translation by Quentin Bates, leaves a sense of unease and sadness that will linger for quite a while' Ewa Sherman, Crime Review ‘Reading a Ragnar Jónasson thriller can be quite exhausting … though in the pleasantest possible way' Max Easterman, European Literature Network
The explosive truth behind the CIA and its dirtiest secrets. On March 16, 1998, the CIA’s Inspector General, Fred Hitz, finally let the cat out of the bag in an aside at a Congressional Hearing. Hitz told the US Reps that the CIA had maintained relationships with companies and individuals the Agency knew to be involved in the drug business. Even more astonishingly, Hitz revealed that back in 1982 the CIA had requested and received from Reagan’s Justice Department clearance not to report any knowledge it might have of drug-dealing by CIA assets. With these two admissions, Hitz definitively sank decades of CIA denials, many of them under oath to Congress. Hitz’s admissions also made fools of some of the most prominent names in US journalism, and vindicated investigators and critics of the Agency, ranging from Al McCoy to Senator John Kerry. The involvement of the CIA with drug traffickers is a story that has slouched into the limelight every decade or so since the creation of the Agency. Most recently, in 1996, the San Jose Mercury News published a sensational series on the topic, "Dark Alliance", and then helped destroy its own reporter, Gary Webb. In Whiteout, Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair finally put the whole story together from the earliest days, when the CIA’s institutional ancestors, the OSS and the Office of Naval Intelligence, cut a deal with America’s premier gangster and drug trafficker, Lucky Luciano.
"The condition of Whiteout Conditions is the North American sublime, a grim, gnomic, hilarious dialect Tariq Shah inherits from Denis Johnson, Don DeLillo, the Coen Brothers, The Jesus Lizard, and Colson Whitehead. —Jess Row, author of Your Face in Mine and White Flights Ant is back in Chicago for a funeral, and he typically enjoys funerals. Since most of his family has passed away, he finds himself attracted to their endearing qualities: the hyperbolic language, the stoner altar boy, seeing friends in suits for the first time. That is, until the tragic death of Ray — Ant’s childhood friend, Vince's teenage cousin. Ray was the younger third-wheel that Ant and Vince were stuck babysitting while in high school, and his sudden death makes national news. In the depths of a brutal Midwest winter, Ant rides with Vince through the falling snow to Ray’s funeral, an event that has been accruing a sense of consequence. With a poet’s sensibility, Shah navigates the murky responsibilities of adulthood, grief, toxic masculinity, and the tragedy of revenge in this haunting Midwestern noir.
