Righteous jive for all you weedheads, moochers, b-girls, gassers, bandrats, triggermen, grifters, snowbirds, and long-gone daddies. Much of the slang popularly associated with the hippie generation of the 1960s actually dates back to before World War II, hijacked in the main from jazz and blues street expressions, mostly relating to drugs, sex, and drinking. Why talk when you can beat your chops, why eat when you can line your flue, and why snore when you can call some hogs? You’re not drunk–you’re just plumb full of stagger juice, and your skin isn’t pasty, it’s just caf? sunburn. Need a black coffee? That’s a shot of java, nix on the moo juice. Containing thousands of examples of hipster slang drawn from pulp novels, classic noir and exploitation films, blues, country, and rock ’n’ roll lyrics, and other related sources from the 1920s to the 1960s, Straight from the Fridge, Dad is the perfect guide for all hep cats and kittens. Think of it as a sort of Thirty Days to a More Powerful Vocabulary for the beret-wearing, bongo-banging set. Solid, Jackson.

Cancer treatment has ravaged Flora Adams's body, not to mention her marriage and her spirit. She plans a visit with her aging aunt to recuperate, but a chance detour introduces her to Mac McIlhaney, an old man who both aggravates and mesmerizes her. Crazy Quilt, set in desolate west Texas, is peopled with a palette of interesting characters including James Willie, the sheriff who wants to rekindle his old love affair with Flora; Jill, a young punk-rocker who thinks she has all the answers; Shorty, the dog with a fondness for wigs; and Lucy Martinez, who is willing to risk everything for Mac and Flora. This detour turns into a labyrinth of emotions that seems to have as little cohesion as an old-fashioned crazy quilt. But what Flora discovers in the end is an oasis of healing that, like love, has turned up in the most unexpected of places. "I wait for morning, sitting on the couch, wondering what I have done. But the thought that seems most profound to me is that we had not said everything that needed to be said, nor done everything that needed to be done. We are right in the middle of things. Living until the end."--from Crazy Quilt
