Sweetwater, by Forrest L. Smith, Jr. Enjoy the adventures of young Bob Smith and Chauncey as they survive childhood misadventures, the Civil War and thrive through Reconstruction. A different look at the old south.

Germania, by Brendan McNally. An absurdist portrait of World War Two Germany between Hitler's death and surrender.

The other two are about Tift Merritt. She's got a live album coming out, Buckingham Solo, recorded in an old church in England. I believe this one is the Tift-solo-acoustic version of, mostly, Another Country. Included is The Best Song Ever Written, as it was meant to be performed, "Trouble over Me."

Speaking of Another Country, the song is sung by Tift in the new Renee Zellweger romantic comedy, New in Town.
