The White House by Joel Craig (Green Lantern Press) $15.00 – Craig’s book doesn’t so much demand as much as call out to the reader, in sequence like an all-night deejay party, with time to dance, time to rest, time to go to the bar and get a refill, or outside for a quick cigarette, hitting on someone on the way back in, hoping to strut, step and swing with them. Cover art and book design by Sonnenzimmer.

Marbles: Mania, Depression, Michelangelo and Me, A Graphic Memoir by Ellen Forney $20.00 – Forney explores her personal experience with being a creative person while also being a manic depressive. Her highs are well, extreme of course, and the lows are well, extreme of course. But whether mental illness has touched your life or not, this book is an excellent read, especially for the venture into creativity, as well as the enlightening nitty gritty specifics like medical expenses that memoirs of the “coping with mental illness” genre tend to omit. A fast and heart read.-LM
