Running Together di Einav Aflalo (BooxAi)

Descrizione: “I only have this radio with me,” he said in his deep voice and handed her the radio machine he used to communicate with the other taxi drivers. His deep tone baffled her for a second, but she shook the feeling off and grabbed the radio from his hand.

“Please!” She screamed into the machine. “If you can hear me, please, call the police!” She started crying. “Please! Send them to the industrial area outside the city!”
“What seems to be the problem?” A voice asked on the other end of the machine. Sophia couldn’t hold it in anymore, and she burst into tears, screaming, “I just found my baby sister in a sex warehouse!”

This story shows how an innocent little girl called Anna becomes the victim of abuse, which deeply injures her soul for good. It's a story that anyone should read in order to learn how innocent children could become abuse victims and how this could affect them. Through this book, we can have a deeper look into the victims' minds and maybe acquire a better insight into how to take better care of our own children.

Pause di Sara Stamey (BookViewCafe)

Descrizione: Dear Diary,

Shall we pause to take stock?

Female (liberated, at least from fraught marriage). Age 52, height 5'5", weight 120, bone density excellent, minimal cellulite, maximal hot flashes. One and 3/4 breasts.

Months since sex: 27

Lindsey Friedland, former river-rafting guide and avid outdoorswoman, has hit the worst stretch of water she's ever faced: divorce from an abuser, breast cancer, menopause symptoms that her friends seem to have paddled serenely by. And she's lost sight of her dream of becoming an environmental journalist.

Lindsey needs to get her spark back.

Dear Diary, Disastrous blind dates so far: The walking cologne bottle. The "really want a gal to give me babies" guy. The pushy past-life reintegration facilitator.

Will Lindsey make it past the rocky shoals of family upheavals, job crises, sexism, and ageism... not to mention toxic love traps? Does "happily ever after" now mean settling for occasional (but hot!) sex with Mr. Maybe? Can she reclaim her journalism dream?

Dear Diary, I'm tired of being tragic. I'm sending off my article about the bulldozers versus the baby owls.
***

"Sara Stamey does for fiction what Cheryl Strayed and Elizabeth Gilbert did for memoir—Pause gives a voice to women who are too often invisible in contemporary books. The unforgettable Lindsey Friedland weaves together humor and passion against the backdrop of the Pacific Northwest's natural beauty, using her unique voice to deliver a must-read novel about friendship, love, and killer hot flashes."
-USA Today Bestselling author Mindy Klasky

The Hidden di Melanie Golding (Crooked Lane Books)

Descrizione: Following her acclaimed debut Little Darlings, Melanie Golding’s newest folkloric suspense is a spine-tingling twist on Celtic mythology.

One dark December night, in a small seaside town, a little girl is found abandoned. When her mother finally arrives, authorities release the pair, believing it to be an innocent case of a toddler running off.

Gregor, a seemingly single man, is found bludgeoned and left for dead in his apartment, but the discovery of children’s toys raises more questions than answers.

Every night, Ruby gazes into Gregor’s apartment, leading to the discovery of his secret family: his unusually silent daughter and his mentally unstable wife, Constance, who insists that she is descended from the mythological Selkies. She begs Ruby to aid in finding the sealskin that Gregor has hidden from her, making it impossible to return to her people.

DS Joanna Harper’s investigation into Gregor’s assault leads her to CCTV footage of the mother-daughter pair from town. Harper realizes she knows the woman almost as well as she knows herself: it’s her estranged daughter, Ruby. No matter the depth of Ruby’s involvement, she knows she will choose her daughter over her career.

Steeped in local legend and exploring the depths of what it means to be a mother, Melanie Golding’s newest novel is “a lyrical and atmospheric folktale for the modern age.” (Bustle, on Little Darlings)

Hemi Under Glass: Bob Riggle and His Wheel-Standing Mopars di Rich & Mark Fletcher Truesdell (CarTech Books)

Descrizione: Look up to the skies through Bob Riggle's eyes in this wheelstanding, must-have Mopar history book on Hemi Under Glass!While the established stock and modified brackets are long-recognized as the heart and soul of drag racing, it was the wheelstanders that more often than not put butts in the bleachers. In that category, some of the most well-known names included Bill "Maverick" Golden's Little Red Wagon, Bill Shewsberry's L.A. Dart and Chuck Poole’s Chuck Wagon. Although, most memorable of all was the Hurst Hemi Under Glass Plymouth Barracuda campaigned by Bob Riggle. Riggle started his career in the early 1960s as a car builder and mechanic for Hurst-Campbell and eventually ascended to pilot the Hemi Under Glass. When he left Hurst in 1969, the Hemi Under Glass franchise transferred with Riggle. He continued for six more years as the owner/driver of a succession of Hemi Under Glass renditions. In the 1990s he resurrected the concept of the original car—making four different versions (1966, 1967, 1968, and 1969)—and continued to thrill drag racing fans with his wheelstanding antics.At the time of this writing, Bob’s last run with the Hemi Under Glass was in the summer of 2019. He claims to have retired (he was 83 years old at the time), but he’s claimed that before!For all the success he enjoyed over his long and distinguished career, which is believed to be one of the longest in all of motorsports, he’s best remembered for a run at Irwindale Raceway in early 2016 with comedian and car buff Jay Leno in the passenger seat in a video that has been viewed more than 10 million times.This is Bob’s story, one that Mark Fletcher and Richard Truesdell, co-authors of the 2012 book Hurst Equipped, are honored to share. They say the story was easy to tell—given their unprecedented access not only to Bob but also to his vast archive of photos that reflect his ongoing popularity. Many of the photos in this book are seen in print for the very first time.

Muscle Car Special Editions di Duncan Scott Brown (CarTech Books)

Descrizione: “Get one before one gets you!” Motion Performance’s catchy sales pitch for builder Joel Rosen’s Phase III Specialty Muscle Cars sums up the escalating performance scene in the late 1960s. Special edition muscle cars were essential to keep pace. Joel and other independent car builders (such as Carroll Shelby, George Hurst, Dick Harrell, Mr. Norm, and Jim Wangers) did what the factories couldn’t do: take the muscle car and turn it into a tire-burning monster.Although the Pontiac GTO established the muscle car category in 1964, a host of corporate safety restrictions restrained factories from offering turn-key race cars off the showroom floor. Independent car builders enhanced appearance and amplified performance in an attempt to do what the manufacturers wouldn’t. Motion Performance issued a written guarantee: Phase III cars would run 11.5 at 120 mph down the quarter-mile!Some of the most iconic nameplates in automotive history were applied in this era with names that included Cheetah, Black Panther, Royal Bobcat, Super Hugger, Manta Ray, Super Snake, Deuce, Fast Track, and The Machine. How did manufacturers stealthily promote these special edition muscle cars as “halo cars” while pretending not to endorse them? What happened to these innovators when factories assimilated their ideas? It’s all covered inside.Muscle car historian Duncan Brown takes us through these special edition muscle cars, their creators, and the behind-the-scenes forces that shaped these wild beasts into legends that left a lasting legacy.

The Weight of Sand: My 450 Days Held Hostage in the Sahara di Edith Blais (Greystone Books)

Descrizione: A radiant, unforgettable memoir of one woman’s 450 days spent in captivity, and her defiant refusal to have her humanity stripped away.

When Edith meets Luca in a small Northern town, the two connect instantly. Under the Northern Lights, they develop a deep friendship over their shared passions: travel, living off the land, a bohemian life. In search of wanderlust, they embark on an epic road trip from Italy to Togo, where they will join their friend’s sustainable farming project. Upon arriving on the African continent, they change their itinerary and drive through Africa’s Sahel region, a haven for militant groups, where they are surrounded and captured. Little was known about Edith’s and Luca’s fate until they reappeared in Mali more than one year later, having mysteriously escaped their captors.

Now, Edith shares her harrowing story with the world for the first time—complete with the poems that became a lifeline for her in captivity, which she wrote in secret with a pen borrowed from another hostage.

Against the stunning but cruel backdrop of the desert, Edith recounts her months as a hostage: the oppressive heat, violent sandstorms, constant relocations, hunger strikes, and her eventual heart-pounding escape. Separated from Luca early on, she finds solidarity and comfort with a group of other female hostages, who lend her a pen to write poetry, a creative outlet that helps save her life. Edith is steadfast in her will to remain sane: she reveals her dedication to her art, and her striking ability to unsettle her captors and identify their vulnerabilities.

A compelling descent into a strange, brutal universe, The Weight of Sand is ultimately a life-affirming book and a poetic celebration of one woman’s resilience.

The World I Fell Into: What Breaking My Neck Taught Me About Life di Melanie Reid (Greystone Books)

Descrizione: “Perceptive—and lacerating—about the pressures felt by disabled people to be cured … A plea to those with well-functioning bodies to be aware of what they have.”—Sunday Times

Melanie Reid was fifty-two years old when she fell from her horse, broke her neck, and was paralyzed from the chest down. In an instant, her life changed forever.

In The World I Fell Into, Melanie describes how she spent nearly one year in the hospital, working toward gaining as much movement in her body as possible, and learning to navigate her way through a world that had previously been invisible to her.

As a journalist, she had always turned to words. As a quadriplegic person, her mind was still working: she could speak, record her voice, and use a laptop with one finger. Writing would be her lifeline.

Melanie writes about disability, recovery, trauma, and relationships with both a generous spirit, frank honesty, and an irreverent sense of humor. Above all, she offers an authentic message of hope: The World I Fell Into reminds us to practice gratitude for what we have, right now, for the world can change in a moment’s notice.

Look at Us di T. L. Toma (Bellevue Literary Press)

Descrizione: A marriage is transformed when the new nanny arrives

Martin, a market analyst, and Lily, a corporate attorney, have a life that many would envy—they share an expensive New York apartment with their twin toddlers, sample the delicacies of Manhattan’s finest restaurants, and take Caribbean vacations. But when the couple’s nanny announces her imminent departure, they panic: how will they ever find a replacement capable of managing their spirited boys? Enter Maeve, a young Irish émigré. Neither of them imagines how indispensable she will become, either to the household or to their marriage. As the family’s domestic bliss takes an unexpected turn, a different type of intimacy evolves, leading to an explosive finale.

A captivating, trenchant portrait of class and sexual dynamics, Look at Us reveals just how fragile our social arrangements really are.

“Charged with erotic intensity. . . . Toma draws his world with Cheeverian nuance and flair; he’s deeply insightful about the new American culture of ‘watchers’—but to me his greatest skill is his ability to summon pure terror.” —George Dawes Green, founder of The Moth and author of The Caveman’s Valentine, The Juror, and Ravens

Cosmogramma di Courttia Newland (Akashic Books)

Descrizione: In his sharply crafted, unnerving first collection of speculative short stories, Courttia Newland envisages an alternate future as lived by the African diaspora.

Robots driven by all-too-human urges set out to colonize space; Kill Parties roam the streets of a postapocalyptic world; a matriarchal race of mer creatures depends on interbreeding with mortals to survive; mysterious seeds appear in cities across the world, growing into the likeness of people in their vicinity.

Through transfigured bodies and impossible encounters, Newland brings a sharp, fresh eye to age-old themes of the human capacity for greed, ambition, and self-destruction, but ultimately of our strength and resilience.

Bloody Crossroads 2020: Art, Entertainment, and Resistance to Trump di Danny Goldberg (Akashic Books)

Descrizione: Bloody Crossroads 2020 is a deep dive into the role that mass-appeal movies, television, videos, and music played in America’s political culture in the year of Donald Trump’s failed reelection campaign. The book also explores the impact of entertainment celebrities in communications, fundraising, and campaigning to support the election of Joe Biden.

Although there existed a decades-old tradition of “liberal Hollywood,” the ascension of Donald Trump to the presidency triggered an unprecedented level of engagement by artists and performers. Within days of the 2016 election, a critical mass of entertainers, from teenagers to the last survivors of the World War II generation—blockbuster movie stars, art-film auteurs, Broadway dramatists, comedians, and musicians from the worlds of classical, country, pop, rock, R&B, and hip-hop—all seemed to have heard the tom-tom beat of resistance at the same moment and amplified a moral alternative to Trumpism.

Following the opening chapters that provide context for politically outspoken entertainers since the 1940s, and the reaction of the entertainment community to the first few years of the Trump administration, the bulk of Bloody Crossroads 2020 is a detailed mosaic of the engagement of the entertainment community in the Democratic primaries, the COVID pandemic, the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd, the conviction of sexual predator Harvey Weinstein, and the 2020 general election campaign.

Exhaustively researched, this volume draws from brand-new interviews with Bruce Springsteen, John Legend, Rosanne Cash, David Simon (The Wire), Adam McKay (The Big Short), Chuck D, David Corn, Eric Alterman, Ann Hornaday, Margery Tabankin (former Streisand Foundation director), Greenpeace executive director Annie Leonard, Mandy Patinkin, Kathryn Grody, Michael O’Keefe, and many more.

Bloody Crossroads 2020 also explores the work of late-night comedy hosts such as Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah; musicians, actors, and filmmakers such as Taylor Swift, Cardi B, Alyssa Milano, Mark Ruffalo, Jane Fonda, Robert De Niro, Bette Midler, Steven Spielberg, Spike Lee, Ava DuVernay, Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, Wanda Sykes; as well as commentary from a variety of political and public interest leaders.

Tinderbox: HBO's Ruthless Pursuit of New Frontiers di James Andrew Miller (Henry Holt and Company)

Descrizione: Tinderbox tells the exclusive, explosive, uninhibited true story of HBO and how it burst onto the American scene and screen to detonate a revolution and transform our relationship with television forever.

The Sopranos, Game of Thrones, Sex and the City, The Wire, Succession…HBO has long been the home of epic shows, as well as the source for brilliant new movies, news-making documentaries, and controversial sports journalism. By thinking big, trashing tired formulas, and killing off cliches long past their primes, HBO shook off the shackles of convention and led the way to a bolder world of content, opening the door to all that was new, original, and worthy of our attention.

In Tinderbox, award-winning journalist James Andrew Miller uncovers a bottomless trove of secrets and surprises, revealing new conflicts, insights, and analysis. As he did to great acclaim with SNL in Live from New York; with ESPN in Those Guys Have All the Fun; and with talent agency CAA in Powerhouse, Miller continues his record of extraordinary access to the most important voices, this time speaking with talents ranging from Abrams (J. J.) to Zendaya, as well as every single living president of HBO—and hundreds of other major players.

Over the course of more than 750 interviews with key sources, Miller reveals how fraught HBO’s journey has been, capturing the drama and the comedy off-camera and inside boardrooms as HBO created and mobilized a daring new content universe, and, in doing so, reshaped storytelling and upended our entertainment lives forever.

Animal Wrongs di Stephen Spotte (Three Rooms Press)

Descrizione: In a medieval French courtroom, animals are put on trial for “crimes” against humanity. Chaos ensues. Historical fiction has never been more uproarious as “master storyteller” Stephen Spotte unleashes this wild tale of opposing attorneys battling to defend or prosecute accused animals—including a rat and a pig—facing penalties of being hanged or burned alive at the stake. Based on actual court records, Spotte captures the wit and bluster of the era, where courtrooms were packed with cheering and heckling spectators in ever-more opaque, convoluted, and dilatory trials. By the end of this novel, Spotte uses his critically-acclaimed storytelling skills to explore still-relevant theories on legal precedent, the church vs. the state, mankind’s place in nature, and animal rights. Fans of Umberto Eco, Edward Carey, and Amor Towles will devour ANIMAL WRONGS and its hilarious insights into pride, greed, and some of the most bizarre court trials in history.

“A sprightly tale that finds two attorneys in medieval France matching wits over a triptych of unusual cases. . . . This medieval comedy smacks of Monty Python’s bawdy and mischievous sense of humor.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Amusing and clever . . . This is the fi rst book I have read by Spotte, but it will not be the last.” —The Fish Shelf

“Spotte is a master storyteller.” —Library Journal
"Those wacky ecclesiastics of the Middle Ages and beyond, what were they thinking, putting rats and pigs on trial for alleged crimes against humanity? A fascinating read, by turns amusing and provocative.” —Joe Amato, author, Samuel Taylor's Last Night

“Threaded with unique and sardonic humor, full and powerful.” —Ed Ricciuti, Author, Bears in the Backyard

“A larcenous rat, a murderous pig, and a dangerous lycanthropic wolf are put on trial for their crimes against humanity, and the result is Spotte-on: a tour de force of casuistry wrapped in an argumentative bricolage, an adroitly lunatic mashup.” —Jethro K. Lieberman, Author, Everything Is Jake

Everything Is Jake: A T.R. Softly Detective Novel di Jethro K. Lieberman (Three Rooms Press)

Descrizione: Meet intuitive & charming sleuth T. R. Softly, who must solve the case of a secret agency threatening to topple both the mafia & the US government—perfect for fans of Chris Hauty, David Baldacci, and Joseph Finder. A federal plea deal in Manhattan goes off the rails when a mob boss inexplicably recants his testimony days after voluntarily confessing to a lifetime of crime, and immediately, an FBI agent involved with the case goes missing. To find out what happened, the Feds call in T. R. Softly, detective fiction’s newest and most intuitive sleuth. Softly’s search takes him to Washington, D.C., where the “oddest of the forty-odd presidents of the United States” is suddenly laying plans to evaporate the U.S. government, as assassination rumors percolate in dark corners. Co-opted into partnering with a secret government agency, Softly struggles to understand how many games are being played and by whom. Is he master of his fate or has he been the unwitting agent of friends and foe? A twisting, rollicking tale that enthralls readers until the last page.

“Witty prose complement the clever plotting.” —Publishers Weekly

“A whimsical tale of a secret plot to make seriously bad guys incriminate themselves. . . A broad, sweetly fantastical satire just perfect for readers in the mood.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A smart and entertaining read, and the perfect novel for our times.” —Deborah Archer, President, American Civil Liberties Union

“Smoothly written, with humor and insight, this smart book holds your attention to the very end.” — Annette Gordon Reed, author, On Juneteenth;
Carl M. Loeb University Professor, Harvard University


“Everything a great thriller is supposed to be: complex, ambitious, and chock full of surprises.” —Jon Land, USA Today Bestselling author, Murder on the Metro

“An hilarious romp through a justice system gone haywire.” —James D. Zirin, former Southern District of New York Prosecutor, Author, and Legal Analyst

“An exuberant tale, wrapped in good-natured humor, and has something for almost any taste: missing persons, courtroom drama, coming of age, unbalanced politicians, romantic edges, even a dose of neuroscience, with a theatrical explosion in the White House that may seem wholly fanciful and yet eerily familiar, all in pursuit of secret agents working — literally — in the ‘deep state.’” —Sandor Frankel, author, The Accidental Philanthropist



“What fun! Everything Is Jake is built around an ingenious conceit and keeps readers on their toes with a genre-hopping style that goes from legal drama to juvenile detective to adult detective to political thriller to romantic comedy while lacing the whole thing with doses of political satire. . . . Satisfying and sweetly amusing.” —Richard Patterson, director, The Gentleman Tramp

“This whodunit of a palimpsest will overwrite your brain leaving a remnant buzz of pleasure and delight.” —Stephen Spotte, author of Animal Wrongs: A Novel

Descrizione: In return for helping Stiffkey the ghost pass into the Afterworld, Jake Green has been awarded an official position at the Embassy of the Dead, a job he didn’t ask for and, to be honest, doesn’t necessarily want. But saying no to the Embassy isn’t really an option, so now Jake must journey even deeper into the mysterious world of ghosts. What should be a routine Undoing takes a turn when Jake overhears a plot to destroy the very fabric between the worlds of the living and the dead. Can he do the impossible and stop the terror that creeps in the Eternal Void? With the help of his ghostly gang—hockey stick–wielding Cora and Zorro the fox—he’s going to try. Hijinks from beyond the grave will tingle readers’ spines and tickle their funny bones as the Embassy of the Dead trilogy continues.

Needlework di Julia Watts (Three Rooms Press)

Descrizione: In rural Kentucky, a sixteen-year-old boy with a love of quilting, cooking and Dolly Parton helps his grandma care for his opioid-addicted mother, until the discovery of a family secret upends everything he has ever believed. While other sixteen-year-old boys in Morgan, Kentucky love hunting and football, Kody prefers to spend his time quilting with his grandmother (“Nanny”), watching Golden Girls reruns, and listening to old Dolly Parton albums. Nanny is Kody’s main caregiver, but it takes both Nanny and Kody to take care of Kody’s mother, whose drug problem is spinning out of control. Between looking after Mommy and trying to survive in a place that doesn’t look kindly on feminine boys, Kody already has a hard time making sense of his life. But then he uncovers a family secret that will change everything.

"A would-be 'Backwoods Barbie' tale with a whole lot of heart." —ALA Booklist

“Julia Watts doesn’t sugarcoat the problems in contemporary Appalachia, but she also writes with big-hearted generosity and love. Kody, the gay sixteen-year-old protagonist, is sensitive, funny, and kind. I wish I’d had this book to read when I was young. Plus, Dolly Parton and dogs—what’s not to love?” —Carter Sickels, author, The Prettiest Star

Needlework is a manual on how to be alive amidst the challenges of living. Julia Watts's Kody is the queer protagonist we all need right now, reminding us the necessity to love and forgive (even within its brutality) and to never let go of the music in our life that teaches us how to celebrate our truest selves.” —Aimee Herman, author, Everything Grows

“In Needlework, set in a Kentucky world of Walmart jeans and empty storefronts, Julia Watts writes a poignant story about a sixteen-year-old Dolly Parton wannabe who just doesn’t fit in with the other boys in town. At once complicated and heartbreaking, Kody’s efforts to help his mother confront her opioid addiction, keep a big family secret, and deal with the close-mindedness of those closest to him keep us wondering who will get a second chance—and whether they deserve it.” —Kelly Ann Jacobson, author, Tink and Wendy

Riding High in April di Jackie Townsend (Ripetta Press)

Descrizione: Inside the rising tech microcosms of Seoul, Singapore, Japan, and India, far from the mendacity of Silicon Valley, a serial tech entrepreneur pursues a last-ditch attempt to build something great: COMPASS, an open-source network platform that Microsoft has labeled “reckless.” At stake are his reputation, his dwindling bank account, and his fifteen-year relationship with the only woman he’s ever loved—a woman in the midst of reckoning with who she is and what really matters to her in the face of the narcissism and destructiveness of the technology world. She shows up in Seoul in a big, bold move to be with him—only to find that living in Asia reshapes her in intangible, unexpected ways.

Taut and richly layered, Riding High in April is a powerful evocation of our contemporary tech moment, a revealing exploration of resilience and the pursuit of something unattainable, and a moving story of love, friendship, and letting go.

See the Dog: Three Stories About a Cat di David LaRochelle (Candlewick Press)

Descrizione: The dog is sick today, but have no fear—the cat is happy to take his place! But when the book (who is very bossy) tells her to dig a hole, the dirt-averse cat finds a way to accomplish the task while keeping her fur pristine. And when the book demands that she fetch a stick (in the water!) or guard a sheep (from a wolf!), the cat responds in very un-doglike ways. Can the book and the cat reach a happy ending? With simple, repetitive phrases and tongue-in-cheek humor, this spoof on a classic early reader pits a well-meaning but slightly dramatic cat against a highly persistent book in a comical battle of wits that will have kids yowling.

The Heartbreak Bakery di A.R. Capetta (Candlewick Entertainment)

Descrizione: Syd (no pronouns, please) has always dealt with big, hard-to-talk-about things by baking. Being dumped is no different, except now Syd is baking at the Proud Muffin, a queer bakery and community space in Austin. And everyone who eats Syd’s breakup brownies . . . breaks up. Even Vin and Alec, who own the Proud Muffin. And their breakup might take the bakery down with it. Being dumped is one thing; causing ripples of queer heartbreak through the community is another. But the cute bike delivery person, Harley (he or they, check the pronoun pin, it’s probably on the messenger bag), believes Syd about the magic baking. And Harley believes Syd’s magical baking can fix things, too—one recipe at a time.

Tink and Wendy di Kelly Ann Jacobson (Three Rooms Press)

Descrizione: What happens when Tinker Bell is in love with both Peter Pan and Wendy? In this dark re-imagining of Peter Pan, Peter and Wendy’s granddaughter Hope Darling finds the reclusive Tinker Bell squatting at the Darling mansion in order to care for the graves of her two lost friends after a love triangle gone awry. As Hope wins the fairy’s trust, Tink tells her about the tragedy of Wendy and Peter—and the terrible part she played in it. Told in three alternating perspectives—past, present, and excerpts from a book called Neverland: A History written by Tink’s own fairy godmother—this queer adaptation is for anyone who has ever wondered if there might have been more to the story of Tinker Bell.

“A character-driven reimagining of Peter Pan . . . a queer, introspective retelling.” —Kirkus Reviews

Tink and Wendy is a masterful reinvention of the classic. Full of teenage angst and yearning, it is poignant, relatable, and full of contemporary appeal.” —Foreword Reviews

“Made me feel the same way I felt when I was little reading the original Peter Pan stories, that sense of something magical, just right out of your reach. Like magic was really possible. . . . 5 stars, more if it was possible.” —My Cat Reads and Reviews

Tink and Wendy isn’t simply a brilliant, queer revision; it’s Peter Pan as I wish it had always been. Readers will adore Tink’s candor and her journey through grief, devotion, and redemption. This legend is enriched by Kelly Ann Jacobson’s talent and wit. Tink and Wendy joins the ranks of Boy, Snow, Bird by Helen Oyeyemi, The Robber Bride by Margaret Atwood, and The Color Master: Stories by Aimee Bender and will become the classic that replaces the classic.” —Melissa Scholes Young, author, The Hive and Flood

“Queer readers such as myself who spent their childhoods escaping into the fantastical worlds of Oz and Neverland will delight in Kelly Ann Jacobson’s Tink and Wendy … News flash: It’s not all about the boys anymore!” —Julia Watts, author, Quiver and Needlework

“Jacobson breathes new life into traditional Peter Pan lore … Tink and Wendy is a delight for fans of Peter Pan.” —Tara Campbell, author, Cabinet of Wrath: A Doll Collection

Hang on Tight! Learn to Love the Roller Coaster of Entrepreneurship di Suzanne Tregenza Moore (Highlander Press)

Descrizione: Do you wonder if your business is going off the rails?

Are you often confronted by the demons of fear, inconsistency, and doubt?

Does it feel like you’re riding a roller coaster with its highs and lows—financially, physically, and emotionally?

You are not alone! Entrepreneurial women experience all of these and more while building a business and concurrently caring for loved ones. Buckle in and learn to ride with arms stretched high as you yell, “Woohoo” instead of gripping the safety bar in terror.

In her debut book, Hang On Tight!, Suzanne Moore shares with her readers that acceptance is not weakness but strength, and that perseverance is an imperative quality for an entrepreneur. She shares with trademark honesty and vulnerability her entrepreneurial roller coaster ride and teaches:

• How fear shows up and can derail your plans and progress;
• The importance of understanding the driving force within you that will keep you going even when times are hard;
• Why understanding your business values plays a crucial role in your long-term success;
• That inner strength will be your saving grace when it seems everything has fallen apart;
• The different communities you need around you in order to create success;
• What leadership really is and what it isn’t;
• The critical role that mindset plays in everything you do; and
• Why celebrating your successes isn’t an act of the ego.

A Cluster of Noisy Planets di Charles Rafferty (BOA Editions, Ltd.)

Descrizione: Charles Rafferty’s latest collection of prose poems turns philosophical. In A Cluster of Noisy Planets, Rafferty captures the rhythms and patterns of life as a lover, father, and poet, distilling each moment to its essence and grounding them collectively in the wider perspective of a changing world, the constant turning of the stars and the changing seasons of the New England countryside. With a knowing nod to the passage of time—day to day, year to year, epoch to epoch—these lyrical poems form a record of the profound, ephemeral joys, losses, and echoes of commonplace moments.

Among Elms, in Ambush di Bruce Weigl (BOA Editions, Ltd.)

Descrizione: This powerful new work by Bruce Weigl follows the celebrated poet and Vietnam War veteran as he explores combat, survival, and PTSD in brief prose vignettes.

In compact, transcendent, and poetic prose, Bruce Weigl chronicles somber observations on the present day alongside painful memories of the war. Reflections on school shootings and the lightning-fast spread of news in the 21st century are set alongside elegies for forgotten soldiers and the lifelong struggle of waiting for the trauma of war to fade.

Haunting and nuanced, Among Elms, in Ambush carries readers through meditations and medications, past the shapes of figures in the dark rice fields of Viet Nam and the milkweed pods in the frost-covered fields of Ohio, toward a hard-won determination to survive.

Ceive di B.K. Fischer (BOA Editions, Ltd.)

Descrizione: A poetic retelling of Noah’s Ark set in the near future, Ceive is a novella-in-verse that recounts a post-apocalyptic journey aboard a container ship.

The narrative unfolds through poems following the perspective of a woman named Val, who is found in the wreckage of her flooding home by a former UPS delivery man. As environmental and political catastrophes force them to flee the Eastern Seaboard, Val and her rescuer take refuge alongside a group of pilgrims seeking refuge from the catastrophic collapse of a civilization destroyed by gun violence, climate crisis, and social unrest.

The ship of cargo and refugees is run by the captain Nolan and his wife Nadia, who set sail for Greenland, now warmed to a temperate climate. The couple place Val in charge of caring for a neurodivergent young boy who holds knowledge of analog navigation. Mourning her missing daughter, Val experiences both isolation and a wellspring of compassion in survival, an indefatigable need to connect. She and the other pilgrims weather illness and peril, boredom and conflict, deprivation and despair as they set sail across stormy, unfamiliar waters.

Drawing from the Anglo-Saxon poem The Seafarer, the Bible, and the Latin root word in receive, Ceive is a vision of eco-cataclysm and survival—inviting meditations on biodiversity, illness, social law, sustenance, scripture, menopause, sensory perception, human bonds, caregiving, and loss, all the while extending a call for renewal and hope.

Diamonds di Camille Guthrie (BOA Editions, Ltd.)

Descrizione: Diamonds presents a woman in midlife on the edge. In hilarious and heartbreaking poems, Camille Guthrie writes about the trials and surprises of divorce, parenting, country life—and the difficulties and delights of being alone, looking at art, and falling in love.

Witty resilience abounds in these irreverent poems about grief and desire—in which the poet meditates upon gender roles, history, pop culture, and academia. Guthrie subverts and teases traditional forms in an elegy about Sylvia Plath’s prom dress, a dating profile for Hieronymus Bosch, a sestina about beauty and power—with radical dramatic monologues in the voices of Madame du Barry, a Pict Woman, and more. Unlike Virgil, who refuses to guide this poet through her journey at midlife, Guthrie leads readers by the hand into a provoking, affecting journey of a break-up and a reconciliation with love.

Distant Fathers di Marina Jarre (New Vessel Press)

Descrizione: This singular autobiography unfurls from author Marina Jarre’s native Latvia during the 1920s and '30s and expands southward to the Italian countryside. In distinctive writing as poetic as it is precise, Jarre depicts an exceptionally multinational and complicated family: her elusive, handsome father―a Jew who perished in the Holocaust; her severe, cultured mother―an Italian Protestant who translated Russian literature; and her sister and Latvian grandparents. Jarre tells of her passage from childhood to adolescence, first as a linguistic minority in a Baltic nation and then in traumatic exile to Italy after her parents’ divorce. Jarre lives with her maternal grandparents, French-speaking Waldensian Protestants in the Alpine valleys southwest of Turin, where she finds fascist Italy a problematic home for a Riga-born Jew. This memoir―likened to Speak, Memory by Vladimir Nabokov or Annie Ernaux’s The Years and now translated into English for the first time―probes questions of time, language, womanhood, belonging and estrangement, while asking what homeland can be for those who have none, or many more than one.

Tenderness di Derrick Austin (BOA Editions, Ltd.)

Descrizione: In a country where violence and the threat of violence is a constant weather for queer Black people, where can the spirit rest?

With lush language, the meditative poems in the Isabella Gardner Award-winning Tenderness examine the fraught nature of intimacy in a nation poisoned by anti-Blackness and homophobia. From the bedroom to the dance floor, from the natural world to The Frick, from Florida to Mexico City, the poems range across interior and exterior landscapes. They look to movies, fine art, childhood memory, history, and mental health with melancholy, anger, and playfulness.

Even amidst sorrow and pain, Tenderness uplifts communal spaces as sites of resistance and healing, wonders at the restorative powers of art and erotic love, and celebrates the capaciousness of friendship.

Alien's Captive di Tina Moss (City Owl Press)

Questo libro è un eBook, non un libro cartaceo.

Descrizione: All I’ve wanted since my abduction from Earth’s first long-range space flight is freedom from my alien captives. But when I’m sold off to a Rhonar warrior, I learn I'm not the only one enslaved on this hellish planet, and survival comes at a cost.

The dominant alpha alien they call Xelan may be my new master, but his fair dealings—and devilishly sexy charms—give me hope for the future.

If I can strike an agreement with the battle-scarred warrior, perhaps together we can change the destiny of those bound in chains.

And if I can’t—well, I haven’t backed down from a fight yet.

However, as enemies line up to destroy the alien warriors and subjugate the galaxy, I discover that the universe has a sense of humor.

Fated mates are real. And Xelan declares me his.

How can I attain my freedom if I’m tied to another being? Even if his possessive growls and single-minded attention ignite my desires in ways I’ve only dreamed, I cannot be his.

But how long can I fight the pull of a mating bond before I lose my head—and my heart—to the heat burning between us?

Only the stars know.

Anax (The Order Series #1) di Keren Ouliel (Niv Books)

Questo libro è un eBook, non un libro cartaceo.

Descrizione: Walking a fine line between conspiracy theories and the unimaginable truth, a young environmental journalist, Naya Tellus, investigates unexplained natural disasters.
Stepping onto a path of secret societies, mythical creatures and fate, she discovers the truth about herself and her place in the world she would never have believed existed.

What is the connection between Naya and the higher force that sets everything in motion? Who can she trust? And what
if the reality is more unbelievable than any fiction?

Anax, the first book in The Order series, is your key to mystery, fantasy and myth. Will you accept your destiny?
“Don’t you think that if something like that was true, everyone would have known it by now?”

Joshua taps his fingers against the mug, seemingly somewhat impatient yet curious.
“Well, your world leaders do not care about anything that does not involve money.”

Naya scoffs. “My world leaders? Need I remind you that we live on the same planet?”

The man straightens himself, takes a twenty pound note out of his blazer pocket and stands up, handing it to her rather than putting it on the table. Naya doesn’t miss the fact that he hadn’t touched his food or drank his tea.

“We may live on the same planet, but that does not mean we live in the same world. My world, Miss Tellus, has its own rules.”

Blood Phoenix (Spirit Seeker, #3) di Amber K. Bryant (City Owl Press)

Questo libro è un eBook, non un libro cartaceo.

Descrizione: There’s no time to rest when there’s an entire future to lose.

Having just saved the world from a supernatural assault, psychic Sybille Esmond is hoping fate will cut her some slack. Instead, her cousin is possessed by the spirit of Sybille’s nemesis, her dearest friend is likely dead, and her previously undead boyfriend refuses to resign himself to his new status as a mortal.

And then, there are the spirits…

Dead to the World (Doug Bateman Mystery, #3) di B.D. Smith (Black Rose Writing)

Questo libro è un eBook, non un libro cartaceo.

Descrizione: Time is running out for Investigator Anne Quinn and Detective Doug Bateman.

An ESPN sponsored powerboat regatta is coming to their tranquil lake in central Maine, but a shadowy environmental group is fighting back with nighttime attacks on race planners and participants. Most of the nocturnal attacks by the “Water Rats,” who consider the two days of boat races a desecration of their lake and their way of life, are pretty minor. But when Doug and Anne determine that the accidental deaths of two local men involved in regatta planning were in fact homicides, they must try to figure out if they are linked to the increasing hostility between regatta sponsors and the “Water Rats.”

It seems unlikely that disagreement over a boat race would lead to murder, however, and their investigation soon gets entangled with ex-wives and widows, jealous and spurned lovers, insurance payouts, and secret overseas bank accounts.

Questo libro è un eBook, non un libro cartaceo.

Descrizione: “The more I know of the world, the more I am convinced that I shall never see a goblin I can really love.” Jane Austen. A bit.

Everything Elinor Dashwood held dear is lost when her father blows his fortune at the casino tables then dies from the shame of it. Her half-brother and his grasping goblin wife have always despised their dryad half-sisters. They lose no time at all in kicking them out of their house.

Before they leave, Elinor meets Edward, a half-goblin who shares none of his sister’s wickedness. His compassion wins Elinor over, and she soon falls in love. But her heart is broken when she learns Edward is secretly bonded to a sexy succubus and though her soul tells her he loves her, she knows he can never be hers.

Their fortune seems to change when the family's invited to live in a small cottage in Maine. Elinor's heartbreak lingers but her younger sister Marianne has more luck and is wooed by a handsome incubus. Driven by her desires, Marianne quickly falls for his quick wit and charm, ignoring all of Elinor’s misgivings about the suspicious young man.

Despite all obstacles, the two sisters strive to find happiness — unaware there is a demon in the shadows, ready to make good on a bet to steal their hearts and make their suffering last forever.

The Assassin and the Libertine (Les Dames Dangereuses, #1) di Lily Riley (City Owl Press)

Questo libro è un eBook, non un libro cartaceo.

Descrizione: The fate of France itself is at stake if these sworn enemies cannot change their ways—and their hearts.

Daphne de Duras is a proper French duchess by day and fledgling assassin by night. Her latest mission is to dispatch justice and protect the French aristocracy by executing Étienne de Noailles, disgraced former noble, legendary rake, and vampire emissary to the court of King Louis XV.

But Étienne’s alleged crime—the gruesome murder of Madame de Pompadour, the King’s mistress and Daphne's friend—doesn’t quite fit the dashing vampire’s nature. With his immortal days suddenly numbered, Étienne needs to convince his would-be executioner not only of his innocence, but that they should hunt the real killer together—a challenge almost as difficult as convincing himself that he isn’t falling for her.

Daphne reluctantly agrees to a temporary partnership when Étienne persuades her that something more sinister is afoot. He can, after all, help her find answers in places she’s unable to go alone. And despite her deep loathing for any and all vampires, she can't help but start thinking of a few other places she'd like to go with him.

Ed Garrison has it all: a successful basketball career, a great relationship with his kid brother, the best dog a guy could ask for, and a supportive family. With summer vacation the only thing standing between him and a full-ride scholarship to UC Berkeley, Ed feels invincible.

But as the years pass, riddled with distrust and regret, he fails to maintain the relationships that matter the most.

7000 Miles to Freedom: From Refugee to Red Carpet di Naz Meknat (Black Rose Writing)

Questo libro è un eBook, non un libro cartaceo.

Descrizione: Tehran, late 1970s a capital city on the brink of a revolution. After the revolution, the physical and political landscape of Iran drastically changed, the streets were filled with crumbling buildings, sirens rang throughout the night and smoke filled the skyline. I was a young girl amidst this chaos and it wouldn’t be long before I realized my own life was destined to be just as chaotic as my burning city. As I grew up, my life reflected the rebellious nature of the city I called home.
As an adolescent I felt confined, trapped and wanting more out of the life and the violent relationship I was in, I wanted a shot at an extraordinary life, but felt that it was far out of my reach. The struggles continued and I had to find a way to keep my hope alive. A hope that turned into a goal, a goal to reach America.

    From Tea to Coffee: The Journey of an Educated Youth di Cheng Wang (Open Books)

    Questo libro è un eBook, non un libro cartaceo.

    Descrizione: “From Tea to Coffee is a wonderful exploration of history and a life that has extended across half a century and two continents. For those who believe that East and West can never meet or can only stand in opposition to each other, this memoir offers a beautiful counterpoint.”—Bennett R. Coles, award-winning author of six published books including Dark Star Rising

    “Cheng Wang’s transformative evolution from young Communist ideologue to astute western observer is a must-read cultural travelogue.” —Don Vaughan, founder, Triangle Association of Freelancers, North Carolina

    Following Mao's call to the young during the Cultural Revolution, Cheng Wang, a so-called “Educated Youth,” boarded a train destined for a secluded village in Inner Mongolia for the compulsory period of re-education. For the next three grueling years in rural exile, he pondered how his once privileged family had been caught in a political undertow, and how his own future might unfold.

    From Tea to Coffee is a story of struggle and triumph during China’s modern-day cultural and political drama, and is a rare and personal account that showcases the Chinese national psyche. Like all political movements of the past, the Cultural Revolution was not the first of its kind, nor quite possibly the last, yet Cheng Wang, now at home in both America and in China, maintains an optimism in confronting today's social polarization between the East and the West.

    Surviving Home: Poems di Katerina Canyon (Book Publicity Services)

    Questo libro è un eBook, non un libro cartaceo.

    Descrizione: Katerina Canyon is an Award Winning Poet, Best Selling author, civil rights activist, and essayist. She will be releasing her new poetry collection ‘Surviving Home’ in December 2021, published by Kelsay Books. Surviving Home is a reflection on African American heritage and up-bringing, racism, and abuse.

    Concisely arresting and challenging the beliefs of family and the fantasies of tradition, the poems in Surviving Home show that home is a place that you endure rather than a place where you are nurtured. With unyielding cadence and unparalleled sadness and warmth, Katerina Canyon contemplates the prejudice and limitations buried in a person's African American heritage: parents that seem to care for you with one hand and slap you with the other, the secret desires to be released from the daily burdens of life, as well as the surprising ways a child chooses to amuse herself. Finding resilience in the unexpected, this collection tears down the delicate facades of family.

    Questo libro è un eBook, non un libro cartaceo.

    Descrizione: Rowan Slone is settling into her first semester at college. On her own for the first time, she’s enjoying her work at the animal shelter, and she’s finally feeling in control of her life.

    But the past is back. When her old boyfriend texts out of nowhere, Rowan starts to feel that familiar fear that her life is about to be turned upside down—and not in a good way. Her mother’s new psychiatrist wants Rowan involved in her therapy even though Rowan wants nothing to do with her.

    When tensions begin to arise between her and best friend, Jess, who is struggling being a new mother, Rowan becomes confused and angry at her friend who is leaving her to pick up the childcare slack.

    It’s time for Rowan to finally deal with her past. Will soul-searching help her achieve that elusive sense of peace and family she’s always craved or will the pain of the past prove too great?

    Look to the Sun di Emmie Mears (BHC Press)

    Questo libro è un eBook, non un libro cartaceo.

    Descrizione: This dystopian masterpiece by Emmie Mears gives a “message of hope, acceptance and courage during the worst of times [and] will entrance the reader with its artistic flair, complexity and delivery of raw emotion.” (InD’Tale Magazine).

    For fifteen years, the National People’s Voice has ruled in relative peace, quietly snuffing out dissent wherever it’s found. Silently enforcing their views and doctrine upon the people of Sanmarian as citizens disappear overnight and businesses mysteriously close.

    Rose Abernethy and Beo Mataya are two strangers drawn together by one thing alone: Red Sunrise. A mysterious book no one else seems to have read. A book only two types of people ever ask about—collectors and the National People’s Voice. A book both Rose and Beo feel was written just for them and that strangely seems to echo what is currently going on in their beloved city.

    As the facade of calm seethes into violent protests, Rose and Beo are caught in the middle. Drawn into the center of a forgotten tragedy, they discover the book may not only hold the key to the secret of the city’s past but also the key to its future.

    Nothing Else is Love di Gina Linko (TouchPoint Press)

    Questo libro è un eBook, non un libro cartaceo.

    Descrizione: In 1998, Alice Grier is a normal twenty-five-year old, but with a secret. She plays the piano, speaks perfect French, and mixes homemade perfume as a hobby. For her graduate work in history, she's researching the historical significance of St. Paul's most famous buildings, including its rehabbed Victorian homes, breweries and speakeasies, and its labyrinthine underground maze of sandstone caves and tunnels, all used by Prohibition gangsters, star-crossed lovers, and, of course, a lingering piano-playing ghost.

    Rune Folkeson came to America in the 1920s as a child, a Swedish immigrant, facing life with an abusive father, a brother with secrets, and a seer mother. Rune's story is one of seeking the American Dream, with one extra caveat. He must avoid his mother's vision about him, which she's had, over and over, since the day he was born; Rune belly-crawling for his life through a darkened tunnel — not unlike the ones below St. Paul's Swede Hollow neighborhood.

    Alice's and Rune's stories can't intertwine; they're separated by space, by time, an ocean, nearly a century.

    But then again, Alice does have a secret. She loves to make parfum, that specific clink-clank of the pipettes against the beakers, the subtle stinging smell of the perfumer's alcohol, the cool calming fragrance of the lavender buds when she would pluck them from their purple-gray stalks. You see, Alice knows how to mix scents from the before, when she lived in France, nearly a hundred years ago. In her previous life. But when Alice's discoveries at Swede Hollow begin to fade the line between past and present, superimposing her previous life on this one, here and now, Alice realizes there's more at stake than finding out what happened to the heartbroken lovers of her before.

    As Alice's mystery unfolds, she realizes that somehow, some way, against all common sense, her before isn't over.

    The Corpse Flower (Kaldan and Schäfer, #1) di Anne Mette Hancock (Crooked Lane Books)

    Questo libro è un eBook, non un libro cartaceo.

    Descrizione: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo meets Sharp Objects in this internationally bestselling psychological thriller, for fans of Jo Nesbø and Henning Mankell, now for the first time in English.

    Danish journalist Heloise Kaldan is in the middle of a nightmare. One of her sources has been caught lying, and she could lose her job over it. Then she receives the first in a series of cryptic and unsettling letters from a woman named Anna Kiel.

    Wanted in connection with the fatal stabbing of a young lawyer three years earlier, Anna hasn’t been seen by anyone since she left the crime scene covered in blood. The police think she’s fled the country until homicide detective Erik Scháfer comes up with a lead after the reporter who originally wrote about the case is found murdered in his apartment. Has Anna Kiel struck again, or is there more than one killer at large? And why does every clue point directly to Heloise Kaldan?

    Meanwhile, the letters keep coming, and they hint at a connection between Anna and Heloise. As Heloise starts digging deeper, she realizes that to tell Anna’s story she will have to revisit the darkest parts of her own past–confronting someone she swore she’d never see again.

    Descrizione: Scarlet Secrets is Christie Leigh’s second collection of poems. This is a book about desire, heartbreak and times of metaphorical wilderness in our lives, and those dreams kept private in the deepest part of the soul.

    This collection echoes the longing to continually live your life passionately in a bright red: Scarlet (to be exact!).
    Scarlet
    In a rose
    A body-hugging dress
    Lips
    Desire
    And the secrets in those most authentic wishes.

    With lines that carry the musicality of a city jazz club at night and soulful love songs playing on your stereo, Scarlet Secrets is also about the greatest aspects of this life we live and what gets many of us up for that bright sunrise each morning.

    ARC available as a PDF.
