Don’t Mean Nothin: Vietnam War Stories by John Mort
Requirements: .MP3 reader, 192.4 MB
Overview: These twelve stories reflect the combat infantry experience of the Vietnam War–in the gritty “Tanks,” “Called of God,” and “Incubation Period.” There’s also the woman’s perspective of Arlene, a naive Red Cross volunteer or “Doughnut Dolly,” in “A Man’s World.” Mort captures veterans’ experiences in “Rest Stop,” a woeful, divorced man’s tale; “Hallelujah By and By,” a dark, almost supernatural story set in the Arkansas Ozarks; and “Behind Enemy Lines,” the story of a homeless, damaged man who at last finds his way home. All but two of these stories were previously published in such magazines as GQ and the MISSOURI REVIEW, or in the collection, TANKS. Mort served with the First Cavalry in 1969 and 1970, near Tay Ninh, as an RTO.

Mean by Myriam Gurba
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 2.1 Mb
Overview: True crime, memoir, and ghost story, Mean is the bold and hilarious tale of Myriam Gurba’s coming of age as a queer, mixed-race Chicana. Blending radical formal fluidity and caustic humor, Gurba takes on sexual violence, small towns, and race, turning what might be tragic into piercing, revealing comedy. This is a confident, intoxicating, brassy book that takes the cost of sexual assault, racism, misogyny, and homophobia deadly seriously.
We act mean to defend ourselves from boredom and from those who would cut off our breasts. We act mean to defend our clubs and institutions. We act mean because we like to laugh. Being mean to boys is fun and a second-wave feminist duty. Being mean to men who deserve it is a holy mission. Sisterhood is powerful, but being mean is more exhilarating.
Being mean isn’t for everybody. Being mean is best practiced by those who understand it as an art form.
These virtuosos live closer to the divine than the rest of humanity. They’re queers.

It’s Not Mean If It’s True by Michael Thomas Ford
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 148 MB
Overview: The author of Alec Baldwin Doesn’t Love Me and That’s Mr. Faggot to You returns with more skewed observations on the strange state of the queer union. As fans of his previous collections have happily discovered, little escapes his attention, and no topic is too controversial or sacred to be tackled. “The Condensed History of Gay Pride” is enough to send any politically correct gay leader shrieking into the streets. But Ford’s favorite target remains himself. The fact that Cher’s butt is more famous than he is really irks him, and he is willing to pretend to be straight in order to get help while shopping for clothes. He murdered his rival’s “egg baby” in high school to secure a good grade, and he sacrificed his own to a chocolate cake. Whether he is equating becoming a man with buying a barbecue in the very moving “Rite of Passage” or considering the state of parenthood in the unforgettable “Cheaper by the Dozen”, Ford continues to observe life in ways that help us more closely observe ourselves – while never, never forgetting to make us laugh.
