Richard Mitchell was the Underground Grammarian. Here, back in print after many years, is The Gift of Fire, his last book, with a preface by his daughter, Daphne Mitchell Keller. In this collection of interconnected essays, he explores the teachings of Jesus and Socrates, parables of St. Peter and the Brothers Grimm, and the writings of Orwell and Aquinas, and considers what they have to teach us about living a good life. Best known for his long-running newsletter, The Underground Grammarian, and his previous writings about education, Mitchell guides his readers through the thorny perils of everyday morality, helping them respond with deep self-awareness to everything from traffic jams to war, partisan politics, and inequality. From the preface: "Nowhere in The Gift of Fire does Richard Mitchell, who was my father, claim that we can't think. Quite the opposite, in fact. There is no person, he says, who does not have the capacity to be educated, no one who lacks the ability to become able to tell the good from the bad, or who is somehow prevented forever from taking the grasp of his own mind. There are those who have not learned to do these things, or who are unwilling to do them, or who don't even know that they could be done. It's no surprise that many people don't do them. But he would (and in fact does) argue that every one of us could."

Dan Caro has been proving the world wrong since he was in diapers. When he was two years old, he was engulfed in a fireball during a gasoline explosion in the family garage and was left with third-degree burns over most of his body—so severe that doctors held out little hope he’d survive more than a few days. Dan was in such excruciating pain that his devastated parents silently prayed for God to end their son’s suffering and welcome him into heaven. And it seemed as if God was willing to oblige—Dan technically died on the operating table several times in the hours following the accident. But even though his heart stopped, Dan’s spirit wasn’t ready to give up . . . somehow he knew he had work to do. Despite the odds, Dan survived, but life would not be easy. The fire left him badly maimed and disfigured. His hands were burned away, as was most of his skin and nearly all of his face. He would endure years of painful surgeries and endless months of lonely isolation in burn units, only to suffer the agony of social rejection, shunned and called "monster" by both children and adults in his Louisiana hometown. With the support of his loving parents and siblings, Dan did not despair. He kept his heart open to the world and focused on the positive energy around him. Before his sixth birthday, he vowed that his life would not be defined by the way others saw him or the restrictions of his so-called physical handicaps. Dan set himself a series of life goals, starting with the art of tying his shoelaces without fingers. Once he had achieved that milestone, he decided he could do anything . . . so why not learn to play the drums? When Dan was told he’d never be able to do so, he promised himself that one day he’d become one of the most accomplished drummers in the city that gave jazz its name—New Orleans! Since that day, Dan’s music has inspired thousands, and many more have also been inspired by his personal philosophy of focusing on the positive, refusing

As punishment for making man as powerful as gods, Prometheus was bound to a rock; every day his immortal body was devoured by a giant eagle. But in Walter Mosley's The Gift of Fire, those chains cease to be, and the great champion of man walks from that immortal prison into present-day South Central Los Angeles. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
