This memoir of riding a motorcycle at midlife is “a stirring reminder that it’s never too late to become the person you were meant to be” (New York Times–bestselling author Sarah Hepola). It’s a fact that we become more risk averse in our later years —which, according to psychology and neuroscience, is exactly what we shouldn’t do. Here, Bernadette Murphy recounts how she—a forty-eight-year-old woman with a settled career and family—decided to get onto a motorcycle, and how that became the catalyst that transformed her thinking and her life. Murphy also explores how risk changes our brain chemistry, how certain personality types embrace dangerous behavior and why it energizes them, and why women’s expectations change once estrogen levels drop. She also explores cultural portrayals of women and risk—why there are so few stories of the conquering heroine. Surely Thelma and Louise driving off the cliff should not be our only pop culture reference for women finding true freedom. With scientific research and interviews woven through a page-turning road trip narrative, Harley and Me is a look at how one woman found deeper meaning out on the open road. “Murphy is a powerful woman . . . She survived a childhood with a mentally ill mother. She raised three children. She’s a professor, a journalist, a marathoner, an ice climber, a Sierra hiker, and, as she tells us in her gripping memoir, Harley and Me, a brave motorcyclist . . . What’s truly refreshing is that she shows how the path to transformation is a rocky road. No easy 10 Steps to Survive Your Midlife Crisis provided here. Her story inspires without being tritely inspirational, and that is a real gift.” —The Rumpus “Part memoir, part travelogue, part science-psychology . . . a powerful call to reconsider our impulse to ‘settle in’ during the second half of our lives.” —The Chicago Review of Books

James F. Coker was born in Thomaston, Georgia. He grew up there but left at an early age. He was in the United States Air Force S.A.C. division. This took him to a number of foreign countries when he was still at a young tender age. But running with experienced well-trained troops taught him more about life that he was even ready for. Growing, living, and working in an environment of this sort can create loads and loads of true stories. Getting to where Jim is today is but the tip of the proverbial ice berg. The following is one of those stories. Though based on a true story, some of the additives are intended to enhance the story and give it a bit of luster and a better reading.

From the author of the New York Times bestsellers Holding Up the Universe and All the Bright Places (soon to be a major motion picture starring Elle Fanning), a spellbinding debut about ill-fated love—and what it means to grow up. “A touching read, funny and wise, like a crazy blend of Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, a less morose Flannery O’Connor, and maybe a shot of Hank Williams . . . Niven makes some memorable moon-spun magic in her rich fiction debut.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) Like All the Bright Places, hailed as a “charming love story about [an] unlikely and endearing pair” (New York Times Book Review), Jennifer Niven's debut novel is a big-hearted story about the struggle to find happiness. Velva Jean's mother urged her to "live out there in the great wide world,” and growing up in Appalachia in the years before World War II, Velva Jean dreams of becoming a big-time singer in Nashville. Then she falls in love with Harley Bright, a handsome juvenile delinquent turned revival preacher. As their tumultuous love story unfolds, Velva Jean must choose between keeping her hard-won home and pursuing her dream of singing in the Grand Ole Opry. From the Trade Paperback edition.

It’s no wonder descriptions of riding often resemble the words of Asian mystics and Jedi knights: The ride causes your senses to open completely. You experience only the present, the now. Readers who prefer revving a Harley to meditating in a Zen garden know that biking is just as contemplative as chanting in the lotus position. Here, philosopher-bikers explore this seeming dichotomy, expounding on intriguing questions such as: Why are the motorcycles the real stars of Easy Rider? What would Marx and Foucault say about Harley riders’ tight leather garb? What’s it like to live a dual life as a philosophy professor who wrenches his own 1965 Electra Glide? Would Jesus hang out in a biker bar or a coffeehouse? And more importantly, would He ride a Harley or a Honda? These witty, provocative essays give readers and riders a new appreciation of what it means to become one with the road.
