Summary:

New York Times Notable Book: “Yoon writes stories the way Fabergé made eggs: with untold craftsmanship, artistry, and delicacy.” —Ann Patchett An NPR “Best Debut Fiction” and a Los Angeles Times “Favorite Fiction” selection Spanning over half a century—from the years just before the Korean War to the present—these stories reveal an intricate and unforgettable portrait of a single island in the South Pacific. Novelistic in scope, daring in its varied environments, Once the Shore is a remarkable work of international fiction by the acclaimed author of Snow Hunters. “So persuasive are Yoon’s powers of invention that I went searching for his Solla Island somewhere off the mainland of South Korea—not realizing that it exists only in this breathtaking collection of eight interlinked stories . . . a fully formed, deftly executed debut.” —San Francisco Chronicle “These are lovely stories, rendered with a Chekhovian elegance. They span from post-World War II to the new millennium, with characters of different ethnicities, yet each story has a timelessness and relevance that’s haunting and unforgettable.” —Don Lee “Yoon’s collection of eight richly textured stories explore the themes of family, lost love, silence, alienation and the effects of the Japanese occupation and the Korean War on the poor communities of a small South Korean island . . . Yoon’s stories are introspective and tender while also painting with bold strokes the details of the lives of the invisible.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

'Tom Holt stands out on his own... If you haven't read any Tom Holt, go out and buy one now. But don't blame me for any laughter-induced injuries.' - VECTOR 'Witty and eccentric... dazzling, neat, frivolous.' - TIME OUT There was something wrong! Just as the boiling water was about to be poured on his head and the man with the red book appeared and his life flashed before his eyes, Akram the Terrible, the most feared thief in Baghdad, knew this had happened before. Many times. And he was damned if he was going to let it happen again. Just because he was a character in a story didn't mean that it always had to end this way. Meanwhile, back in Southampton, it's a bit of a shock for Michelle when she puts on her Aunt Fatima's ring and the computer and the telephone start to bitch at her for past misdemeanors. But that's nothing compared to the story that her kitchen appliances have to tell her. From one of the best-loved comic writers in fantasy fiction comes another absurdly witty title - perfect for fans of Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett.

Summary:

Take a trip back to a different place and time. Where crowds of hunched and oddly dressed youths would probably be train-spotters, where you could have a reign of terror on a Sunday afternoon just by riding your cast-iron scooter across the blue brick pavement, and where the height of excitement on the street was getting two Beech Nut chewing gum packets on the fourth turn of the handle. Philip Whiteland entertains with this collection of articles presenting some keenly observed and very funny meanders through the past and present. Why not come and join him on the trip, but, whatever you do, remember to keep “Steady Past Your Granny’s” "Steady Past Your Granny's" is the first book in the 'nostalgedy' collection of stories, which also includes "Crutches for Ducks" and "A Kick at the Pantry Door"

Summary:

This globe-trotting mystery featuring intrepid photojournalist Sophie Medina is an “assured tale of love, loss, and secret agendas, the first in a new series, which... offers a complex portrait of our nation’s capital, with its historic beauty and roiling underbelly of deceit and danger” (Publishers Weekly). When photojournalist Sophie Medina returns to London from an overseas assignment, she discovers that her husband, Nick, a geologist and covert CIA operative, has been abducted and assumed dead. Three months later, a friend in the British government relays that Nick has been spotted in Moscow, but Sophie is allowed little joy before the news turns dark—Nick is accused as a suspect in his boss’s murder and rumors circulate that he’s involved in illicit Russian oil deals. With her every step closely watched, Sophie moves to Washington, DC, to be with her family and friends. There, Sophie is drawn deeper into Nick’s shadowy world. While photographing an exhibit of two never-before-seen Fabergé imperial eggs at the National Gallery of Art, Sophie is confronted by a Russian oil tycoon, implicating her husband in an international energy scheme. On the run from Nick’s enemies, Sophie plays a high-stakes game of Russian roulette as she tries to determine friend from foe and prove her husband’s innocence. Weaving together political intrigue, art history, and international espionage, the fast-paced Multiple Exposure is the thrilling first novel of an exciting new series.

Summary:

The richly textured, panoramic story of an American mother and daughter stuck in the expatriate community of Ankara, Turkey, in 1975--each of them trying to discover a life in the larger world, each in way over her head When she is twelve years old, Canada moves with her mother and father to Ankara, Turkey, where her father has been stationed by the government. It is 1975--the Cold War is in full swing and tensions in the Middle East are escalating. But in Ankara's diplomatic community, the days are lazy and indulgent--one long cocktail party. While her father routinely disappears on official business, Canada and her mother, Grace, find themselves in the company of gossipy embassy wives and wealthy Turkish women, immersed in a routine of card games and afternoons at the baths. By the time summer comes, and the city's electricity shuts down from dawn to dusk, mother and daughter can no longer tolerate the insular society--or each other. Alternating between their perspectives, Dervishes follows Canada and Grace as they set out into the larger city: Grace is drawn to the lover of her wealthy, manipulative Turkish friend; Canada competes with another girl for the attentions of an arrogant Turkish houseboy, one who knows all their mothers' secrets. Before long, both are in over their heads, and their transgressions threaten to strand them between the safe island of westerners and a strange city that guards its secrets fiercely. Written with sensuousness and empathy, Beth Helms's debut is the story of a mother and daughter cut loose from their foundations, hungry for independence but dangerously naive.

Summary:

Now in paperback, from the author of the bestselling The Middlesteins: the novel that's "unabashedly emotional, refreshingly devoid of New York City cynicism, and tenderly funny?" (People). Jarvis Miller's artist husband has been in a coma for six years. And so, Jarvis has spent these years suspended between hope and grief, paralyzed with longing for a life and a marriage that are slipping away. But then, unexpectedly, Jarvis makes her first new friends in years when she meets the Kept Man Club: three men whose lifestyles are funded by their successful wives, who gather once a week on laundry day. With their help, she reawakens to the city beyond her Brooklyn apartment, past the pitying eyes of her husband?s art dealer and his irresponsible best friend as her future begins to take on the irresistible tingles of possibility for the first time in almost a decade. When a shocking discovery casts a different light on her idealized marriage, she's propelled even further down a path that she would never have dared to imagine just months before. Tender, bold, and unabashed, The Kept Man is a compulsively readable novel about love and loss from one of our most dynamic new storytellers.

Summary:

A bold and captivating new novel of what it means to be a woman in ancient Greece, from the celebrated, award-winning author of The Golden Mean. Aristotle has never been able to resist a keen mind in another, even in his own daughter, Pythias - a young girl who should be content with the kitchen, the loom and a future of childbearing. But she is really smart, able to best his own students in debate; is she a freak or a harbinger of what women can really achieve? Whichever is the case, hers is a privileged position, a woman who moves in a man's world, protected by the reputation of her philosopher father. Yet her entire life is set to change when Aristotle falls from grace... Driven from Athens, the old philosopher soon dies. Without the loving guidance of her father, the orphaned sixteen-year-old Pythias quickly discovers that the world is a place not of logic after all, but one of superstition, and that a girl can be preyed upon by gods and goddesses as much as by grown men and women. To safely journey to a place in which she can reach her true potential, Aristotle's daughter will need every ounce of wit she possesses; and she must also learn, quickly, to nurture her capacity to love.

Summary:

Wracked by guilt, Cass searches for a young mother’s killer On the western edge of Staten Island, not far from the city dump, lies a watery patch of earth known as Fresh Kills. It’s an old Dutch name, and it has nothing to do with violence—until now. A defense lawyer in private practice, Cass lets a friend talk her into handling something she wouldn’t normally touch: an adoption case. It was meant to be open and shut, but it gets messy when the mother, Amber, decides to keep the child—a decision that will mean her death. She is found facedown in the mud of Fresh Kills, and Cass Jameson can’t help but feel that it is all her fault. To wash her hands of guilt, Cass must find Amber’s killer, a search that will take her into a brutal part of the underworld, where children are just another commodity to be bought and sold.
