Book Geraldine Verne's Red Suitcase Description/Summary:
His dying wish was to set her free. So why does she feel so trapped? Jack had two dying wishes: that his wife scatter his ashes somewhere 'exotic', and that she not give up on life once he was gone. He intended to spur her on to new adventures, but despite clinging to her red suitcase, Geraldine Verne hasn't left the house for three months. It takes an accident for Geri to accept help from her friends, but when Meals on Wheels arrive she is mortified. Yet heartbroken volunteer Lottie brings with her more than cottage pie and custard. Like Geri, she too is struggling to cut loose. As a gloriously unlikely friendship blossoms, Geraldine begins to feel a long-lost spark of life and a newfound confidence. Perhaps what both women needed most, after all, was each other.
"It's romance and fairy tales. But it's magic and whimsy too. It's a writer's lament and a coming-of-age tale (for lack of a better cliché.) It's experimentation and taking chances. It's poetry and music. It's love and art." -LL Book Review "Silly and poignant and real . . . This isn't a love letter to Veronica as much as a love letter to the process of falling in love, and to that of writing a novel. . . delightfully hyper-aware of its own storytelling." -Books I Done Read "A great read indeed . . . Entrekin has really shown himself to be a first rate novelist with Meets Girl. The story crackles with energy as it progresses toward a satisfying conclusion." -The Outer View --- "Once upon a time, I fell in love with a girl who didn't love me in return." New York City, circa 2006. A young man lucking into any temp job he can while following his dream to be a writer. A dream girl and a bad case of unrequited love (is there any other kind?). If the story ended there, it wouldn't be extraordinary. It would be just another tale from the big, bad, glorious city; just another romance that never was; just another friendship that never got the chance to be anything more. But the story doesn't end there. Angus Silver won't let it. Angus Silver knows what people love and whom, and he offers that young writer who fell in love with that girl who didn't love him in return a simple choice. The choice is easy. Making it is not. Making it will break someone's heart.
Beetle Creek is a humorous bush yarn about the Bournley family from Beetle Creek, a fictional village near Moree, NSW. It takes a nostalgic look at life in the bush in the 1950s, which contributed greatly to its popularity on its first publication in 2006. The Bourneys are a strange but lovable crew: DAD has a philosophical bent, steals the odd sheep and scrounges for useful items at the local tip; MUM judges the annual CWA scone-baking contest, protects her brood fiercely and handles herself well in a street fight; DENNY, aged 7, traps rats on the bedroom windowsill and does a nice little sideline in blackmail; LUCY, aged 12, is a spooky recluse who foretells the future of each family member; MARCIE, aged 15, discovers lust in the dust and never looks back; DAVO, aged 16, the Beetle Creek Casanova, is no stranger to hard yakka or sexual benevolence; UNCLE WALLY is fresh out of jail ... and JACK, the would-be author, is writing it all down.

An edgy, propulsive read about what we will do in the name of love and blood Tony has always looked out for his younger brother, Nick.

As a small-town New England lawyer, Tony's wife, Julia, has cases involving kids all the time. When Detective Rice gets assigned to this one, Julia feels they're in good hands. Especially because she senses that Rice, too, understands how things can quickly get complicated. Very complicated. After all, one moment Nick was having a drink with a handsome stranger; the next, he was at the center of an investigation threatening to tear not only him, but his entire family, apart. And now his attacker, out on bail, is disputing Nick's version of what happened. As Julia tries to help her brother-in-law, she sees Tony's desire for revenge, to fix things for Nick, getting out of control. Tony is starting to scare her. And before long, she finds herself asking: does she really know what her husband is capable of? Or of what she herself is? Exploring elements of doubt, tragedy, suspense, and justice, The Damage is an all-consuming read that marks the explosive debut of an extraordinary new writer.

Bland is anathema to Carlos Mota. As he travels the world--from Lisbon to Tangier, India to Santo Domingo, New York to Paris--producing feature stories and ad campaigns for countless publications and companies, he exults in every spark of originality and creativity he sees. Fortunately for us, he not only documents his sightings with his camera but also collects images by a Who's Who of interiors and architectural photographers. And in this volume, he has culled some 280 of his favorite images, all wholly different but all sharing one quality: the beauty of color, both literally and figuratively. There are interiors, table settings, fabric swatches, tiles, floral arrangements, sculptures, architectural ornamentation--whatever captures his discriminating eye. Peppered with quotes about color and beauty by a host of designers, Beige Is Not a Color is the antithesis of bland and as aspirational as it is inspirational.
Book The Thieving Collectors of Fine Children's Books Description/Summary:
"This takes getting lost in a book to a whole new level. I loved it!" --James Riley, New York Times-bestselling author of the Story Thieves series "A fast, fun, furiously inventive, and frequently frightful read." --Geoff Rodkey, New York Times-bestselling author of the Tapper Twins series and We're Not from Here This clever, fast-paced adventure is a mix of the Story Thieves series and Ready Player One!

Double Blind follows three close friends and their circle through a year of extraordinary transformation. Set between London, Cap d'Antibes, Big Sur, and a rewilded corner of Sussex, this thrilling, ambitious novel is about the headlong pursuit of knowledge—for the purposes of pleasure, revelation, money, sanity, or survival—and the consequences of fleeing from what we know about others and ourselves. When Olivia meets a new lover just as she is welcoming her best friend, Lucy, back from New York, her dedicated academic life expands precipitously. Her connection to Francis, a committed naturalist living off the grid, is immediate and startling. Eager to involve Lucy in her joy, Olivia introduces the two—but Lucy has received shocking news of her own that binds the trio unusually close. Over the months that follow, Lucy’s boss, Hunter, Olivia’s psychoanalyst parents, and a young man named Sebastian are pulled into the friends’ orbit, and not one of them will emerge unchanged. Expansive, playful, and compassionate, Edward St. Aubyn's Double Blind investigates themes of inheritance, determinism, freedom, consciousness, and the stories we tell about ourselves. St. Aubyn's major new novel is as compelling about ecology, psychoanalysis, genetics, and neuroscience as it is about love, fear, and courage. Most of all, it is a perfect expression of the interconnections it sets out to examine, and a moving evocation of an imagined world that is deeply intelligent, often tender, curious, and very much alive.
Book To Walk Alone in the Crowd Description/Summary:
Winner of the 2020 Medici Prize for Foreign Novel From the award-winning author of the Man Booker Prize finalist Like a Fading Shadow, Antonio Muñoz Molina presents a flâneur-novel tracing the path of a nameless wanderer as he walks the length of Manhattan, and his mind. De Quincey, Baudelaire, Poe, Joyce, Benjamin, Melville, Lorca, Whitman . . . walkers and city dwellers all, collagists and chroniclers, picking the detritus of their eras off the filthy streets and assembling it into something new, shocking, and beautiful. In To Walk Alone in the Crowd, Antonio Muñoz Molina emulates these classic inspirations, following their peregrinations and telling their stories in a book that is part memoir, part novel, part chronicle of urban wandering. A skilled collagist himself, Muñoz Molina here assembles overheard conversations, subway ads, commercials blazing away on public screens, snatches from books hurriedly packed into bags or shoved under one's arm, mundane anxieties, and the occasional true flash of insight—struggling to announce itself amid this barrage of data—into a poem of contemporary life: an invitation to let oneself be carried along by the sheer energy of the digital metropolis. A denunciation of the harsh noise of capitalism, of the conversion of everything into either merchandise or garbage (or both), To Walk Alone in the Crowd is also a celebration of the beauty and variety of our world, of the ecological and aesthetic gaze that can, even now, recycle waste into art, and provide an opportunity for rebirth.
