“Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?” —Janis Joplin A journalist’s intrepid endeavor to sell his used car abroad results in a high-spirited and revealing look at West Africa. “Look, there’s my car,” I say, pointing at my Mercedes in the parking lot. “Where?” a fellow desert traveler asks. “There, that Mercedes,” I say. He looks at me, questioning. “You want to drive that through the Sahara?” Jeroen van Bergeijk came up with what seemed like a great scheme for making a quick profit: buy a clunker of a car in his native Amsterdam and resell it in the Third World, where a market even for jalopies still thrives. His chariot of choice is a rusted-out 1988 Mercedes 190D with 220,000 kilometers on its odometer; his route will take him from Holland through Morocco, across the Sahara, and into some of the least trodden parts of Africa. My Mercedes Is Not for Sale is a rollicking tale of an innocent abroad. The author finds himself facing a driving challenge akin to the Dakar Rally but encounters obstacles never dreamed of by race-car drivers: active minefields, occasional banditry—mostly by the border guards—and a teenage, chain-smoking desert guide with a fondness for Tupac lyrics. Food and water are scarce, sandstorms are frequent, and all he has to patch up his many car breakdowns thousands of miles from civilization is a bar of soap, some duct tape, and a pair of women’s nylons. Then there’s the coup he survived. My Mercedes Is Not for Sale captures more than the adventure—it vividly portrays the impact of globalization on Africa through a surprise-filled journey into its thriving car culture, while asking the question: is the white man’s burden really a used car?

If Bernie fails to solve this impossible mystery not only is his reputation at stake, but also that of Reinhard Heydrich, a man who cannot bear to lose face.
Life is suspended for the characters in this striking debut collection. Frozen with loss, numbed by the drudgery of routine, stalked by ghosts, or scared by their own violence, they hunker down and wait--for the return of sanity, new love, bloody revenge, self-control, or just enough courage to take one small risk. Distinguished by psychological acuity and nuanced prose, each of these dozen stories involves a quiet--but pivotal--shift: villains become heroes, a fall proves to be redemption, a wrong is righted--or made worse. An aspiring nightclub singer joins a group of people waiting for the demolition of a condemned bridge; a jogger who thinks he's conquered his violent past is undone by a surprise visit from his grandson; a saleswoman who prides herself on her quick understanding of customers realizes, in the course of a holdup, that she understands less than she thought. All struggle to balance the joys of freedom with the comforts of safety, the dangers of chaos with the reassurance of restraint. Liberally laced with the color and texture of teh pacific Northwest--San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland--Breathe at Every Other Stroke introduces a writer of sharp and singular observations. With sly wit and broad compassion, Pamela Gullard depicts the bumpy acquisition of wisdom.
