Born into this bleak and bloody landscape, twelve-year-old Julie struggles to hold on to hope as she and her parents drive across the wastelands of America, a nightmarish road trip in search of a new home. Hungry, lost, and terrified, sixteen-year-old Nora finds herself her brother's sole guardian after her parents abandon them in the not-quite-empty ruins of Seattle.
And in the darkness of a forest, a dead man opens his eyes. Who is he? What is he? With no clues beyond a red tie and the letter "R," he must unravel the grim mystery of his existence - right after he learns how to think, how to walk, and how to satisfy the monster howling in his belly.

I paused just as often to savor the beauty of Wallace's sentences as I did to wipe away tears at his characters' predicaments. Kirkus : "Wallace spins another mythical tale about love and family A fanciful story layered in symbolism and ripe with lyrical language. Publishers Weekly : "The fifth novel from Wallace Big Fish is an imaginative, sentimental modern-day tall tale Wallace's far-fetched, rollicking yarn, written in the vein of Manly Wade Wellman and Fred Chappell, consistently engages the reader.
Booklist starred review : "Wallace's eerie fairy tale for grown-ups is a melancholy yet enchanting pastiche of love, loss, redemption, and revenge. It's science fiction, mystery, and coming of age story all wrapped into one; creative but also firmly grounded in a real human experience, with all its loss, pain, and disillusionment - but also beauty, hope, and belonging. A wonderful story. I just loved it. I really enjoyed the themes of political intrigue, the depth of the characters, the suspense, and the twists and turns, all with the backdrop of space and interstellar travel, which I love.
It all felt so original. I can't wait to see what the sequel has in store. Terra's search for belonging and authentic human connection is one to savor. This journey seems an almost impossible achievement, a heroic triumph of determination over adversity Scott Pilgrim's life is awesome.

Courtney is an odd little girl who doesn't quite fit in. When she is shipped off to her uncle's, she must adjust to a whole new school in a neighborhood she isn't entirely comfortable with; however, things quickly take a turn for the better, as she meets the strange and interesting individuals that live in and around her uncle's house.
Soon it's clear that she's better off hanging with the Night Things than she is with the stuck-up kids at her school. It's adolescent angst vs. From visionary cartoonist Ray Fawkes comes one of the most original and thought-provoking graphic novels of all time! A unique and poetic narrative, One Soul takes the experiences of 18 individuals and weaves them into the spiritual journey of a lifetime. Gracefully flowing from character to character, moment to moment, Fawkes has crafted a stunning mosaic that takes advantage of the medium of sequential art in a way few creators dare.
Dex is the proprietor of Stumptown Investigations, and a fairly talented P. Unfortunately, she's less adept at throwing dice than solving cases. Her recent streak has left her beyond broke: she's into the Confederated Tribes of the Wind Coast for 18 large. But maybe Dex's luck is about to change. Sue-Lynne, head of the Wind Coast's casino operation, will clear Dex's debt if she can locate Sue-Lynne's missing granddaughter.
But is this job Dex's way out of the hole or a shove down one much much deeper? During the height of the first World War, a reluctant British spy stationed in the heart of the Russian empire is handed the most difficult assignment of his career: orchestrate the death of the mad monk, the Tsarina's most trusted adviser and the surrogate ruler of the nation. From the slums of the working class into the opulent houses of the super rich, he'll have to negotiate dangerous ties with the secret police, navigate the halls of power, and come to terms with own revolutionary leanings, all while simply trying to survive.
November Communism is collapsing, and soon the Berlin Wall will come down with it. Two weeks ago, an undercover MI6 officer was killed in Berlin. He was carrying information from a source in the East — a list that allegedly contains the name of every espionage agent working in Berlin, on all sides. No list was found on his body. Now Lorraine Broughton, an experienced spy with no pre-existing ties to Berlin, has been sent into this powderkeg of social unrest, counter-espionage, defections gone bad and secret assassinations to bring back the list and save the lives of the British agents whose identities reside on it.
In a newsletter published from May to December as well as in three enormously successful books, Amy Dacyczyn established herself as the expert of economy. Dacyczyn describes this collection as "the book I wish I'd had when I began my adult life. Cynthia Lennon: "Paul Saltzman's photos of all of us in India, in , are absolutely beautiful.
Niffenegger's prose is precise and stinging, her etchings shadowed and graceful, her spellbinding story suffused with implications. It's a lovely story. A new fairy tale takes flight. The one we call ordinary. Elle: "[A] sparkling debut story collection. A writer with one foot in the native Hawaiian community and the other in the mainland mainstream gives us an edgy, unmistakably authentic glimpse of the harder side of island life.
Kahakauwila captures in six related stories the striving lives, colorful pidgin dialect, and varied relationships that anchor and challenge her strikingly drawn characters. Publishers Weekly: "Kahakauwila's debut short-story collection offers a stirring glimpse into the daily lives of contemporary Hawaiians torn between native traditions and the pull of mainland lifestyles.
Filled with an energy and outrage reminiscent of Jamaica Kincaid. A well-crafted work that compassionately treats the men and women who love and suffer in an island paradise. Alix Ohlin, author of INSIDE: "In these lively, accomplished stories, Kristiana Kahakauwila paints a vivid portrait of modern Hawai'i - not the gauzy ideal of tourist vacations, but the messy, fascinating reality of its inhabitants. This is an impressive debut by a writer to watch. Unless you are secretly part of an Intergalactic fleet of space-jumping alien-battling Starbounders, your own life will seem very boring in comparison.
A great ride and a great read!
