"In Margaret Fedder's Angel Rides a Bike, the poems hold a mysterious tension between tenderness and ferocity, spareness and a furtive lushness. Despite their relative brevity, Fedder's poems build a palpable world. There are implications of story, of Catholicism, of family, of place, but the common denominator, and overarching force, is the voice itself-attentive to beauty and to strangeness, and hungry for experience. This collection bespeaks a lyric coming-of-age and a rare instinct for wonder." -Diane Seuss, finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, and author of Wolf Lake, White Gown Blown Open; Four-Legged Girl; and Still Life with Two Dead Peacocks and a Girl

"Phil's new bookGypsy Joker To A Hells Angelis based on 44 years as a Hells Angel. Photos & stories are a must read for all motorcycle riders" - Sonny Barger In the early 1960s, a young Navy vet, motorcyclist, amateur photographer, and rebel named Phil Cross joined a motorcycle club called the Hells Angels. It turned out to be a bogus chapter of the club that would soon find infamy, so he switched to another club called the Night Riders. Like the bogus chapter of the Hells Angels, this turned out to be a club whose brotherhood was run by a man Mr. Cross describes as “a complete asshole.” One day, Mr. Cross stuffed the leader in a ringer-type washing machine and joined a club called the Gypsy Jokers. He started a San Jose chapter of the Jokers and embarked on the most action-packed years of his life. The Jokers were in the midst of a shooting war with the real Hells Angels. The fighting became so intense that the Jokers posted snipers atop their clubhouse. This was a rough time, but it was also the height of the free-love hippie era, and as a young man, Phil enjoyed himself to the fullest. He never let anything as minor as a little jail time stop his fun. Once, while serving time for fighting and fleeing an officer, Phil broke out of jail, entered his bike in a bike show, won the bike show, and broke back into jail before anyone discovered he was missing. Though Phil was tough—he was a certififed martial arts instructor—the Angels proved a tough foe. After multiple beating-induced emergency room visits, Mr. Cross decided that if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, so he and most of his club brothers patched over to become the San Jose chapter of the Hells Angels.DIV/divDIVThis book chronicles the life and wild times of Mr. Cross in words and photos./div
Fallen Angel is the uplifting memoir of a loving mother whose troubled son experiences a thirteen-year battle with drug addiction, destructive relationships, and homelessness. Nine years after they married, Lucinda Esperanza and her husband lovingly welcomed their first child Jason into their family. At first, he appeared to be just a hyperactive and stubborn child, but soon after Jason turned thirteen, the family began to experience events beyond their control. Jason's addiction to crystal methamphetamine, heroine, and ecstasy propelled him on a path of self-destruction that included skipping school, running away, living on the streets, and a complete disregard for authority. Together, these three family members learn to walk arm-in-arm through a journey of perseverance, unconditional love, and seemingly endless hurdles with the shared ultimate goal of saving Jason's life and guiding him to use his potential in a positive way. In due course, the smart, observant and street-wise Jason finds the strength to stop the cycle of drug abuse and cleans up his life. Anyone who has lived with or loved someone with an addiction will relate to this mother's retrospective glance back at the challenges she faced as the mother of a son who lost his way.
