Stan Cutler is good looking, on the dole, and fed up. He can't get enough money or sex, and his acrobatic pigeons seem all that is left in the world to give him pride or joy. Evie Cutler is no more excited; her years of motherhood have peaked, her marriage is stagnant and her job in the chip shop is about as fascinating as a wet fish. When Stan is unexpectedly double-crossed, and Evie takes an electrifying long weekend in Amsterdam, their lives radically change direction. Stan seeks revenge through plotting the perfect crime, while Evie begins to live life with adventure, each discovering excitement and help, neither confiding in the other. Set against the background of recession, and shuttling between the highly contrasting cities of Middlesbrough and Amsterdam, Stan and Evie's secret selves head relentlessly towards an intriguing climax.
In luminous prose, award-winning author Yiyun Li weaves together the lives of unforgettable characters who are forced to make moral choices, and choices for survival, in China in the late 1970s. Shortlisted for the 2011 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award Morning dawns on the provincial city of Muddy River. A young woman, Gu Shan, a bold spirit and a follower of Chairman Mao, has renounced her faith in Communism. Now a political prisoner, she is to be executed for her dissent. Her distraught mother, determined to follow the custom of burning her only child’s clothing to ease her journey into the next world, is about to make another bold decision. Shan’s father, Teacher Gu, who has already, in his heart and mind, buried his rebellious daughter, begins to retreat into memories. Neither of them imagines that their daughter’s death will have profound and far-reaching effects, in Muddy River and beyond. In luminous prose, Yiyun Li weaves together the lives of these and other unforgettable characters, including a serious seven-year-old boy, Tong; a crippled girl named Nini; the sinister idler Bashi; and Kai, a beautiful radio news announcer who is married to a man from a powerful family. Life in a world of oppression and pain is portrayed through stories of resilience, sacrifice, perversion, courage, and belief. We read of delicate moments and acts of violence by mothers, sons, husbands, neighbors, wives, lovers, and more, as Gu Shan’s execution spurs a brutal government reaction. Writing with profound emotion, and in the superb tradition of fiction by such writers as Orhan Pamuk and J. M. Coetzee, Yiyun Li gives us a stunning novel that is at once a picture of life in a special part of the world during a historic period, a universal portrait of human frailty and courage, and a mesmerizing work of art. Praise for The Vagrants “She bridges our world to the Chinese world with a mind that is incredibly supple and subtle.”—W Magazine “A Balzacian look at one community’s suppressed loves and betrayals.”—Vogue “A sweeping novel of struggle, survival, and love in the time of oppression. . . . [an] illuminating, morally complex, and symphonic novel.”—O Magazine

When morning came, Sandy was awakened by the phone ringing. Both Kodie and Miracle bounced up out of bed and ran before Sandy to the phone stand. It was David. He said, Sandy, would you be able to meet me at Halls Auto Repair this morning? The mechanic found something interesting about the car relating to the accident and he wants to talk to us both. Sandy told him, Sounds good. Let me get a shower and get dressed. Is 11:00 this morning a good time to be there? David replied, Yes, that would be great. I am very curious about what the mechanic has to show us and I will meet you there. As Sandy was taking her shower, she was having all kinds of thoughts about what the mechanic had found wrong with the car that may have been a contributor to the car accident, why Kim acted the way she did at the hospital with the avoidance of answering the questions Sandy and David were asking her, who the young, tall, dark and handsome cousin named Richard Sharp actually was and why he was hanging around Kim so much, flirting with her and making her laugh. Sandy remembered Kim getting all upset and flustered during the questioning process, though, begging off to be allowed to rest because she was too tired to continue. Yet, from Sandys acute observations upon her and David first arriving there, Kim wasnt tired at all when Richard was there, which made Sandy think to herself, Hmmmmm, how weird is that? Then, there was Brett, the small son Kim gave Stephen, and Stephen himself in ICU on life support, whom she seemed to pay little mind to. Sandy found this very odd about the behavior Kim was currently displaying, as well, since most mothers and wives would be very worried about their children and husbands, wondering how they are doing, asking about them at every chance they could, etc. This made Sandy wonder to herself if Kim had even bothered to step out of her hospital room at all, away from Richard, long enough to check on her husband and son in their own hospital rooms. All of these flashback thoughts about the hospital interrogation made Sandys strong intuition tell her that something wasnt co-sure at all, about anything regarding this case. She now understood why the sheriffs department called her and wanted her and David to do a more thorough investigation, because they also knew that something wasnt quite matching up with the statements they have gotten from Kim, who was the only one awake, lucid and could give a testimony. With this last thought in mind, Sandy got dressed and stepped out the door to meet David at the garage where the car was. In the meantime, she was praying while driving, Lord, I hope Im wrong and that this isnt what Im suspecting, that there is wrong with Stephens car that may have been done purposely. Even though things didnt end well with us in our divorce, I do not wish any ill on him and hope he will be ok soon, if for nothing else, but his sons sake. David waited at Halls on Sandy to arrive, and met the mechanic, named Jake Foreman, who also waited on Sandy to get there. Jake had been speaking to David, and told him, You both are going to be very interested in what I found and I hope it will help your case. David replied, We want a full report about what you have found after you tell us. Jake said, Yessir! No problem at all. Anything I can do to help you to solve the case, I am very happy to do. David immediately liked Jake. Jake seemed to be a hard-working, honest man who was more than willing to help and David was glad of that, because that is what would be needed to get the case resolved. When Sandy arrived, both of them went inside the garage with Jake, who had the car up in the air on the rack. Jake said, The car is totaled, as you may have noticed, and cannot be repaired. But, the most interesting thing I have found is underneath here. Jake pointed to a certain place under the bashed-in front of the car and said, Take a very close
Tater, I have something to tell you For the first time ever, Big Adam brings together two of his bestselling titles, My Friend Tater and The Four Days, into a single novel to tell the story of the Giant Indian who, as a shy college freshman, meets a campus security officer named Tater who shares his love for the movies. The fun and laughs over the years comes to a jarring halt when the Indian loses the man he knew as Dad. He descends into horrid madness and despair. Only Tater can keep the Indian from doing the unthinkable
I killed a demon. I don't know if it was really, technically a demon, but I do know that he was some kind of monster, with fangs and claws and the whole bit, and he killed a lot of people. So I killed him. I think it was the right thing to do. At least the killing stopped. Well, it stopped for a while. In I Am Not a Serial Killer, John Wayne Cleaver saved his town from a murderer even more appalling than the serial killers he obsessively studies. But it turns out even demons have friends, and the disappearance of one has brought another to Clayton County. Soon there are new victims for John to work on at the mortuary and a new mystery to solve. But John has tasted death, and the dark nature he used as a weapon---the terrifying persona he calls "Mr. Monster"---might now be using him. No one in Clayton is safe unless John can vanquish two nightmarish adversaries: the unknown demon he must hunt and the inner demon he can never escape. In this sequel to his brilliant debut, Dan Wells ups the ante with a thriller that is just as gripping and even more intense. He apologizes in advance for the nightmares.

September Song is a collection of stories and a full-length play, written over a span of fifteen years in the authors long writing career. The settings of the stories range from China to California and Vermont; the play, Guests of Summer, is set in Nebraska. Orville Prescott in the New York Times called one of the stories, OHaras Creation, a provocative study of an artist lost in alcoholism, given an extra push downward by the monotony of his soldier life in China, and the fantastic mural he painted on the walls of a recreation hall.
Jean Genet was one of the world’s greatest contemporary dramatists, and his last play, The Screens, is his crowning achievement. It strikes a powerful, closing chord to the formidable theatrical work that began with Deathwatch and continued, with even bolder variations, in The Maids, The Balcony, and The Blacks. Explicitly political, The Screens is set within the context of the Algerian War. The play’s cast of over fifty characters moves through seventeen scenes, the world of the living breaching the world of the dead by means of shifting the screens—the only scenery—in a brilliant tour de force of spectacle and drama.

“Imagine a humorous novel about a suicide who enters heaven and finds it not cosseting but a purgatory where life’s distractions (food, booze, sex, Internet) are removed and the hardest question looms: Why did he kill himself? Welcome to the journey of Steven, an unintentionally funny male whiner, panicker, quitter, porn addict, and general screwup, as he struggles with God, Jesus, and self to escape Heaven’s Suicide Ward and yet not return to the hell of earth. Reminiscent of Douglas Adams’ delightful Hitchhiker series, Stevenson and Azad play this dilemma for all it’s worth, creating ludicrous conversations that leave both Jesus and God mystified.” –US Review If you happen to find yourself on a difficult path and truly need to find a new way to examine your life, The Book of Steven may help you discover hope where there appears to be none, and offers a unique perspective for examining the universe in which we all choose to participate. Steven’s message is that you do not have to simply be content to live in a world of personal despair, when the possibilities presented by the universe of life are truly boundless. Steven’s journey is not an easy one to take, however, and for those of you who may not need to explore alternative perspectives for our world – or lack the stomach to bear witness to Steven’s saga – you may want to devote your attention elsewhere.
