Songy of Paradise by Gary Panter (Fantagraphics) $34.99 – An inspired interpretation of John Milton’s retelling of the story of Jesus being tempted by Satan after being baptized by John the Baptist and fasting for forty days and nights in the Judaean Desert. Panter’s version doesn’t rely on Milton’s words, but faithfully follows the structure of Milton’s Paradise Regained, with one notable exception: Jesus has been replaced by a hillbilly, Songy, who is on a vision quest before being tempted by a chimeric Satan figure.

Regretting Motherhood: A Study by Orna Donath (North Atlantic Books) $15.95 – Women who opt not to be mothers are frequently warned that they will regret their decision later in life, yet we rarely talk about the possibility that the opposite might also be true—that women who have children might regret it. Drawing on years of research interviewing women from a variety of socioeconomic, educational, and professional backgrounds, sociologist Orna Donath treats regret as a feminist issue: as regret marks the road not taken, we need to consider whether alternative paths for women currently are blocked off. She asks that we pay attention to what is forbidden by rules governing motherhood, time, and emotion, including the cultural assumption that motherhood is a “natural” role for women—for the sake of all women, not just those who regret becoming mothers.
Look for Me in the Whirlwind: From the Panther 21 to 21st-Century Revolutions, Edited by Matt Meyer & déqui kioni-sadiki (PM Press) $26.95 – In 1969 the FBI and New York Police Department rounded up the Black Panther 21 in order to disrupt and destroy the organization that was attracting young people around the world interested in Black liberation. Involving charges of conspiracy to commit violent acts, the Panther 21 trial revealed the illegal government activities which led to exile, imprisonment on false charges, and assassination of Black liberation leaders. Solidarity for the 21 also extended well beyond “movement” circles and included mainstream publication of this, their collective autobiography, which is reprinted here for the first time.
