Preston Sturges: The Miracle of Morgan's Creek

This is the master of subversion's most subversive work, a wartime romantic comedy built around a small-town sweetheart getting drunk and knocked up by a soldier she can't remember. Sturges covers himself by saying his heroine got married before she did the horizontal bop, but even so, the plot is a radical departure for the time. Read a full review of The Miracle of Morgan's Creek.

Domy Books: Monster Show 7

Shadowcreatures and behemoths of brutality! Malformed homunculi and bellicose hellspawn! You know: The crowd you want to hang with, as Domy's gallery walls are covered with monstrous brilliance by dozens of artists from here and around the country, doing their damnedest to galvanize your ick factor and/or exorcise their own longtime demons. Bonus: Much of this original and awesome work is something that you and I and the nearby cafe's second-shift prep cook can actually afford. Recommended. Through Nov. 30.
