SAVAGE, A Journey through the Opioid Epidemic is a wild, wild ride of how one gifted young person, from a good home, got caught up in the drinking and drugging of our time, only to lose friends, to come near death himself, lose his education and shot at careers, a girl he loved, his family's hopes and respect, and then to lose faith that he could ever recover. At times funny, this book is a harrowing ordeal of how drugs and their allure will not let you go until it causes major havoc.
Sacchi finally gets straight "sick and tired," as the expression goes, of the pain of not being who he really is, he stays straight. Full of compassion for those who stand by him, for friends who die from it, SAVAGE tells us more of what this addiction does than any statistic. Read it and weep and learn and bless all those who make it. Also enjoy Saachi's wit and eagle eye for all the antics he had to go through just to survive.

In Down Along with That Devil’s Bones, journalist Connor Towne O’Neill takes a deep dive into American history, exposing the still-raging battles over monuments dedicated to one of the most notorious Confederate generals, Nathan Bedford Forrest. Through the lens of these conflicts, O’Neill examines the legacy of white supremacy in America, in a sobering and fascinating work sure to resonate with readers of Tony Horwitz, Timothy B. Tyson, and Robin DiAngelo.
When O’Neill first moved to Alabama, as a white Northerner, he felt somewhat removed from the racism Confederate monuments represented. Then one day in Selma, he stumbled across a group of citizens protecting a monument to Forrest, the officer who became the first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan and whom William Tecumseh Sherman referred to as “that devil.” O’Neill sets off to visit other disputed memorials to Forrest across the South, talking with men and women who believe they are protecting their heritage, and those who have a different view of the man’s poisonous history.

Gabriel Rotello, an award-winning gay journalist and long-time AIDS activist, has done in this book something no writer has done before. Weaving together the strands of ecology theory, epidemiology and sexual politics, he shows how the AIDS epidemic, like other epidemics from influenza to bubonic plague to today's rapidly emerging viruses, result as much from human behaviors as from specific microbes. He argues convincingly that AIDS was probably a rare disease syndrome in humans that erupted into an epidemic only when cultural changes - including the gay male sexual revolution of the seventies - created ideal conditions for it's evolution and spread.
ntensively researched, passionately argued and intellectually rigorous, Rotello's groundbreaking message is that although AIDS cannot yet be cured, it can be contained. And in clear and unforgettable prose, he tells us how we can accomplish that, one person at a time.
