The James Boys: A Novel Account of Four Desperate Brothers

  A provocative and strikingly original new voice in fiction reinvents the historical novel–along with American history itself–in this wry “what if?” that merges and mashes up four of our most famous and infamous national icons.Historian Otis Pease once remarked that the story of nineteenth-century America could be encompassed in the lives of the two sets of James brothers–William and Henry in the East, Frank and Jesse in the West. The James Boys goes further by making all four of them the fruit of the same family tree and showing how it shakes out.In 1876, the No. 4 Missouri Pacific Express pulls out of Kansas City for Saint Louis. Among those on board is Henry James, the erudite and esteemed novelist and brother of the brilliant philosopher William James. Trying his hand at travel writing, Henry is beset, as ever, by hypochondria–in the form, this case, of dire digestive woes.Suddenly, the train is stopped and robbed–and not by just any bandits but by the legendary James Gang. Taken hostage by the brigands, Henry realizes to his unspeakable horror that Jesse and Frank are in fact “Rob” and “Wilky,” his long-lost brothers, who had disappeared during the Civil War and been presumed dead for more than a decade.From there the ride only gets wilder, careening through underbrush and ivory towers, throwing together America’s greatest intellectuals and most notorious outlaws in a saga of six-guns and sherry that is peopled by a fascinating roster of passengers, both historical and imagined. Most prominent among them are Elena Hite, a feisty young feminist deeply aroused by the down-and-dirty charisma of the criminal Jesse; Alice Gibbens, the eminently sensible schoolteacher engaged to the sexually inexperienced William, who tempts him to stay put rather than joining Henry out West; and William Pinkerton, the renowned detective hot on all of their trails–especially Elena’s.Based on and incorporating actual events, The James Boys is a through-the-looking-glass romp that boldly blends both sides of the American character–the brilliant and the barbaric–in one unforgettable family and one seriously entertaining story.From the Hardcover edition.


The Go Ahead Boys and Simon's Mine

  PREFACE In this book the writer has endeavored to relate a story of stirring adventure and at the same time eliminate all sensationalism and improbable elements. The thread of the story was given him by a man who was familiar with the life and experiences of prospectors. Indeed, there is warrant for almost every event recorded in these pages. The author has no desire to make his young heroes either preternaturally brilliant or possessed of too precocious brains. They are normal, healthy American boys fond of travel and adventure and naturally are meeting experiences such as come to men doing what they were doing in certain parts of our country. Self-reliance, determination, the ability to decide quickly and to act promptly, the strength of will which prevents one from abandoning too easily a course of action which has been decided upon,—all these are foundations upon which any successful life must rest. If these qualities can be acquired in the early years then life is just that much stronger and better. The Go Ahead Boys, in spite of their many experiences are typical boys of America, and as such wish to express to the many friends they have made their hearty appreciation of the interest which has been expressed in their wanderings and adventures.

Cultural Dimensions of Expatriate Life in Malaysia

  This book has been written for the traveler or expatriate who wants to understand more about the complex cultural melange of Malaysia than is available through conventional 'Do's & Don'ts' travel books. Take, for example, the challenge of understanding the concept of Face. Its difficult for Americans to understand the Asian concept of Face because we have no equivalent in our culture. The reason why a clear understanding of FACE is vital for American business people is because we dont really have an equivalent concept, so it is difficult for us to understand what face even is, much less how to influence our Malaysian friends, neighbors and associates in positive ways using our knowledge of FACE. Faces are, in fact, interdependent, with individuals enjoying face through association (whether within families, work groups or even national groups) with high status persons, gaining face when one group member gains it and losing it the same way. An individuals loss of face can be the cut that unravels the complicated, carefully woven fabric of social relationships, the guanxi, upon which his success in society depends. Unrestrained expressions of anger are rare in people of authority in Malaysia and they are excruciatingly embarrassing to the recipient of them. There is a popular Malaysian proverb about how something once said can never be retracted. Throwing a fit, making loud accusations or scolding someone in public could lose you the respect of your subordinates, colleagues or household help. Recipients of severe reprimands respond with expressions of embarrassment such as giggling, smiling nervously or averting the eyes which to the Westerner, unused to such behavior, might add insult to injury if the Westerner was wronged. Most Asians would rather let resentments fester than express their unhappiness publicly. One of the most damaging reputations any person can have is that he BU GEI MIANZI (does not give face), i. e., embarrasses the people he deals with and causes them to loseFACE. Conversely, a person who is proficient in the art of GIVING FACE not only enhances his own FACE but ensures the most effective possible professional and personal relations with the Malaysian Chinese he deals with. Losing FACE is much more intense than suffering embarrassment or shame. In extreme cases it can be like losing all the senses, losing ones place in life. Complete loss of Face is like full exile. You become a non-person, even to family and close friends. You cant speak or be spoken to; you cant be heard or seen. You are just not present. Keep in mind that gaining Face in among Chinese people wherever they live enhances what is most precious, the nurturing bonds which comprise ones whole identity. When a person gains Face by the act of another, there is no gift more appreciated or significant. Keep in mind that regardless of the business or technical concerns of your Chinese and Malaysian associates and colleagues, it is very likely that on a deeply personal level nothing you can offer them is more important than for their FACE to be enhanced by the act of dealing with you. For an American to say or do anything which separates a Malaysian Chinese counterpart from this source of personal identity is painful and frightening in ways which as a westerner you can never fully comprehend. Nevertheless developing an appreciation of the importance of Face, and avoiding trivializing it by making inappropriate comparisons with western ego-centered concepts, will be one of the most important things you can do to make your stay in Malaysia a success.
