"In this evocative memoir, Cassandra Lane deftly uses the act of imagination to reclaim her ancestors’ story as a backdrop for telling her own. The tradition of Black women’s storytelling leaps forward within these pages—into fresh, daring, and excitingly new territory." —Bridgett M. Davis, author of The World According to Fannie Davis When Cassandra Lane finds herself pregnant at thirty-five, the knowledge sends her on a poignant exploration of memory to prepare for her entry into motherhood. She moves between the twentieth-century rural South and present-day Los Angeles, reimagining the intimate life of her great-grandparents Mary Magdelene Magee and Burt Bridges, and Burt's lynching at the hands of vengeful white men in his southern town. We Are Bridges turns to creative nonfiction to reclaim a family history from violent erasure so that a mother can gift her child with an ancestral blueprint for their future. Haunting and poetic, this debut traces the strange fruit borne from the roots of personal loss in one Black family—and considers how to take back one’s American story.

Whenever the author has returned from traveling her friends wanted to hear detailed accounts of her experiences. She started emailing these accounts. Many have kept copies of their favorite pieces and soon everyone wanted the author to compile them into a book. From Alaska to Zanzibar, the author offers funny and detailed observations of the places, people, and cultures she has encountered. On a visit to Pompeii, she tells of frescoes of the various ways ancient Romans copulate. In Africa she thrilled to the spectacle of a lion kill of an impala in the wild, but was repelled by a cat with its kill of a rat in the alleys of Zanzibar. On her 70th birthday, she celebrated with a solo walk of the 800 km Camino Santiago de Compostela from St. Jean Pied de Port in the French Pyrenees to Galicia in Spain. She got lost in the mountains on the first day, but the trek was smooth all the way from there. After her husband passed in 2004 she continued to travel and reflected on her life. A lapsed Catholic, she took a Buddhist retreat in Tassajara trying to inject a spiritual dimension in her life, but she found the vegetarian meals and the mountains more alluring. Along the way she made many friends, young and old, who enriched her life and who showed her that life is indeed beautiful!

A mother’s story of raising an autistic son, navigating the vaccine court, and confronting the widespread denial of a link between vaccines and autism. At four months old, Porter Bridges went in for his well-baby checkup and received an array of vaccines. That night he spiked a 105-degree fever and had a two-hour grand mal seizure. He was rushed to the hospital where doctors struggled to stabilize him while his family paced the halls waiting to hear if he was conscious. Though no one could know it at the time, Porter’s hospitalization marked the start of a terrifying and tragic decline in his health and the health of his family. And while the effects of Porter’s reaction would take years to fully develop, the cause was never in doubt—Porter’s hospital record reads, “Brain injury from pertussis vaccine.” Cognitive dissonance is the psychology term for that queasy feeling we get when things just don’t line up. Here are the facts: Porter is a healthy infant one moment and has brain damage the next. The CDC says vaccines are always safe, but the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program awards Porter’s family millions of dollars to pay for his pertussis injury. The CDC sends a press release saying vaccines never cause autism. That afternoon, government funds pay for Porter’s autism therapy. He goes three times a week. A Bad Reaction is a personal journey—sometimes painful, sometimes funny. It confronts the dissonance between what the government tells us about the vaccine-autism link and its secret payments compensating the vaccine-injured. It tackles broader issues such as individual versus government responsibility, the conflicts of interest in vaccination-safety research, and the balance of individual and collective good. Vaccines hold the special distinction of being the only mandated drugs all children receive and have saved innumerable lives. They also have safety risks. This book is about one of those “negative outcomes.” His name is Porter. Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Arcade, Good Books, Sports Publishing, and Yucca imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs.
