Abstract: 
The story of "Anakim of the Sun: Being Human" is about Father Antonio Rivera, a vampire who became a priest in the hopes of being cured of his blood lust. Though a member of The Church, Antonio finds himself at odd when he must confront his past and is forced to face the one thing he never did: give himself completely to God. By doing so, he realizes the theme behind the Gospel according to John: the road to Heaven is black and white; everything you do, say, think and feel will either take you closer to Heaven or take you closer to Hell... but ultimately, it's your decision.

Abstract: 
From back cover: "...Studs Lonigan has established itself as a classic of the American social novel. Its setting is the South Side of Chicago during the moral chaos of the Prohibition era. Its protagonist, Studs Lonigan, is a young man seeking a destiny he cannot find, leaving behind him only lost ideals and unanswered questions to mark his swift passage from youth to early death. In his frustrated ambitions, his gradual brutalization, and his final failure, Studs emerges as a prototype of the lost and self-alienated American, both product and victim of urban society. The trilogy is, in the words of Philip Allan Friedman, 'a monumental work in the tradition of American literary naturalism...' Alfred Kazin has called Studs Lonigan 'one of the most honest and important works of our time.'"
