NO PERFECT HEROES: PHOTOGRAPHING GRANT is a contemporary photographic tribute by Charles H. Traub to Ulysses S. Grant’s legacy. A singular synergism of art, history, image, sound and interactivity offering a sensory experience into a remarkable man’s story, and his immeasurable role in saving the Union. The issues confronted by Grant, in his deeds and writings, offer fresh insight for a country still divided politically.  Foreword by Ulysses Grant Dietz | Preface by Fred Ritchin | Readings by Edoardo Ballerini One hundred and fifty years after the death of Ulysses S. Grant history has begun to vindicate this great, yet often maligned, general. A humble man of strikinginsight, Grant is finally appreciated for the steadfast leader and visionary President that he was.  Charles H. Traub’s compelling and haunting photographs capture, metaphorically, the essence of those places made great by Grant’s indomitable spirit. Traub traveled throughout the United States photographing the major sites, homesteads and memorials marked by Grant’s life—from his childhood in Ohio to Grant’s final days in New York. INTERLOCUTOR PRESS is pleased to release this ebook, that allows a unique personal experience for the viewer- a responsive exchange between image and text. The experience is heightened by the voice of the talented Edoardo Ballerini , who brings Grant alive, reading excerpts from his Personal Memoirs .

Sometimes life’s unforeseen paths lead us to discovering sides of ourselves we never knew existed.  Ace Bosse has always found solace at home, but when she returns for the summer from college she builds an unexpected relationship with the reckless Max Miller.  Three years ago, Max left for Alaska to find what he thought he’d lost, but now he realizes just how much he left behind.  Max teaches Ace that sometimes a little crazy is exactly what life needs while learning that some chances are worth taking, regardless of the risks.  But how do you know when you’ve met the right person?
