Appel brings people and events to life and lets the reader into some of the backstage dealings which have made the Yankees perhaps the most loved and hated team in baseball history.</p> <p><a title="Pinstripe Empire by Marty Appel" href="http://contemporarylit.about.com/od/memoir/fl/Pinstripe-Empire-by-Marty-Appel.htm">Review of <em>Pinstripe Empire</em></a></p> <p><sub>Photo: Bloomsbury</sub></p><p style="background:#f5f3ef;border:1px solid #d5d0bf;clear:both;padding:.5em;"><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://contemporarylit.about.com/b/2014/05/31/pinstripe-empire-by-marty-appel.htm">Pinstripe Empire by Marty Appel</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://contemporarylit.about.com/">About.com Contemporary Literature</a> on Saturday, May 31st, 2014 at 04:27:25.</p><p><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://contemporarylit.about.com/b/2014/05/31/pinstripe-empire-by-marty-appel.htm">Permalink</a> | <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://contemporarylit.about.com/b/2014/05/31/pinstripe-empire-by-marty-appel.htm#gB3">Comment</a> | <a href="http://contemporarylit.about.com/gi/pages/shareurl.htm?PG=http://contemporarylit.about.com/b/2014/05/31/pinstripe-empire-by-marty-appel.htm&zItl=Pinstripe Empire by Marty Appel">Email this</a></p> http://contemporarylit.about.com/b/2014/05/31/pinstripe-empire-by-marty-appel.htm 2014-05-31T04:27:25Z A Life in Men by Gina Frangello http://contemporarylit.about.com/b/2014/05/30/a-life-in-men-by-gina-frangello.htm <p><a title="A Life in Men by Gina Frangello" href="http://contemporarylit.about.com/od/fiction/fl/A-Life-in-Men-by-Gina-Frangello.htm"><img src="http://0.tqn.com/d/contemporarylit/1/G/p/R/a-life-in-men-frangello.jpg" alt="" width="175" align="right" /></a></p> <p>In Gina Frangello's third novel, Mary, recently diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, and her best friend Nix set out on a global journey together, but something happens at their first stop that will forever change the course of their friendships and their lives.</p> <p><a title="A Life in Men by Gina Frangello" href="http://contemporarylit.about.com/od/fiction/fl/A-Life-in-Men-by-Gina-Frangello.htm">Review of <em>A Life in Men</em></a></p> <p><sub>Photo: Algonquin</sub></p><p style="background:#f5f3ef;border:1px solid #d5d0bf;clear:both;padding:.5em;"><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://contemporarylit.about.com/b/2014/05/30/a-life-in-men-by-gina-frangello.htm">A Life in Men by Gina Frangello</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://contemporarylit.about.com/">About.com Contemporary Literature</a> on Friday, May 30th, 2014 at 13:19:18.</p><p><a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://contemporarylit.about.com/b/2014/05/30/a-life-in-men-by-gina-frangello.htm">Permalink</a> | <a href="http://clk.about.com/?zi=1/1hc&zu=http://contemporarylit.about.com/b/2014/05/30/a-life-in-men-by-gina-frangello.htm#gB3">Comment</a> | <a href="http://contemporarylit.about.com/gi/pages/shareurl.htm?PG=http://contemporarylit.about.com/b/2014/05/30/a-life-in-men-by-gina-frangello.htm&zItl=A Life in Men by Gina Frangello">Email this</a></p> http://contemporarylit.about.com/b/2014/05/30/a-life-in-men-by-gina-frangello.htm 2014-05-30T13:19:18Z Maya Angelou, April 4, 1928 - May 28, 2014 http://contemporarylit.about.com/b/2014/05/28/poet-maya-angelou-has-died-at-86.htm <p><img src="http://0.tqn.com/d/contemporarylit/1/0/o/R/maya-angelou.jpg" alt="" width="175" align="right" /></p> <p>May Angelou passed away in her Winston-Salem home today at the age of 86. The author of six memoirs including her most famous, <a title="The 1970 review of 'I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings'" href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/style-blog/wp/2014/05/28/the-1970-review-of-i-know-why-the-caged-bird-sings/"><em>I Know Wy the Caged Bird Sings</em></a>, Maya Angelou spent time as an actor, playwright, journalist, teacher and songwriter, In <em>I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings</em>, the poet told the story of her humble beginnings in Arkansas, an unstable childhood during which she was raped by her mother's boyfriend. When the rapist was killed by Angelou's uncles, Angelou blamed herself and didn't speak for five years.</p> <p><em>"The Caged Bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom."</em></p> <p>In addition to a prolific poet and author, Angelou went on to become a prominent figure in the Civil Rights Movement, a nominee for the Pulitzer Prize and a guest of U.S. Presidents, having famously read her poem "On the Pulse of Morning" at President Clinton's 1993 inauguration and, in 2011, been presented with a Medal of Freedom by President Obama. She was by all accounts a light in this world who will long be remembered.</p> <p><a title="Maya Angelou Biography" href="http://classiclit.about.com/od/angeloumaya/a/aa_maya_angelou.htm">More about

Shteyngart is a ridiculously funny and inventive individual, evidenced not only by his novels but by the book trailers he's done for both <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwWT0VgnCCw"><em>Super Sad</em></a> and <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sowt9Wq7zYU"><em>Little Failure</em></a>.</p&#
