In this third volume of plays by Cherríe Moraga to be published by West End Press, we confront the changing California landscape of the 1990s, as anti-immigrant, anti-youth, and English Only legislation sweeps across the farmworker towns and multi-racial urban communities of the state. Both plays were developed through interviews conducted with residents in the two towns of Watsonville and East Palo Alto. Both towns stand in the shadow of the first world culture of the University: East Palo Alto is a poor neighbor of Stanford University south of San Francisco, while Watsonville, further south, has seen the University of California at Santa Cruz devour the nearby Pacific coastline. These pla...

Rushmore is the second work from the team of Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson following the success of their debut screenplay and film Bottle Rocket. It is a refreshingly offbeat comedy about young Max Fish, a precocious pupil at a conservative private school. He is a live wire, a teenager full of madcap entrepreneurial schemes that usually in failure. His personal life becomes similarly complicated when he falls for his elegant teacher, Rosemary Cross, and finds himself vying for her favor with Herman Blume-who is portrayed in the film by Bill Murray-the wealthy father of two of his classmates. Max ultimately proves himself a figure of some tenacity as he negotiates the minefield of love, desire, and adolescence.At the Toronto Film Festival, Screen International called Rushmore "a real charmer filled with surprise twists and emotions that avoid sentimentality . . . A little gem."
Daniel Berrigan's fiery appreciation of the prophet Jeremiah is "spiritual reading" of the searing sort, for persons and groups to feel anew the biblical flame of social justice, religious courage, and personal witness. Perhaps no Hebrew prophet speaks so directly to our time as Jeremiah. Perhaps no contemporary can unveil his message and warning as can Daniel Berrigan, whose eloquence and courage, like Jeremiah's, expose the corruption of religious commitment, address national trauma and uncertainty, and proclaim the requirements of true lament and resolve.
