DESCRIPTION:

A compulsively readable debut novel about marriage, immigration, class, race, and the trapdoors in the American Dream—the unforgettable story of a young Cameroonian couple making a new life in New York just as the Great Recession upends the economy

Named one of BuzzFeed’s “Incredible New Books You Need to Read This Summer”

Jende Jonga, a Cameroonian immigrant living in Harlem, has come to the United States to provide a better life for himself, his wife, Neni, and their six-year-old son. In the fall of 2007, Jende can hardly believe his luck when he lands a job as a chauffeur for Clark Edwards, a senior executive at Lehman Brothers. Clark demands punctuality, discretion, and loyalty—and Jende is eager to please. Clark’s wife, Cindy, even offers Neni temporary work at the Edwardses’ summer home in the Hamptons. With these opportunities, Jende and Neni can at last gain a foothold in America and imagine a brighter future.

However, the world of great power and privilege conceals troubling secrets, and soon Jende and Neni notice cracks in their employers’ façades.

When the financial world is rocked by the collapse of Lehman Brothers, the Jongas are desperate to keep Jende’s job—even as their marriage threatens to fall apart. As all four lives are dramatically upended, Jende and Neni are forced to make an impossible choice.

Praise for Behold the Dreamers

“Imbolo Mbue’s masterful debut about an immigrant family struggling to obtain the elusive American Dream in Harlem will have you feeling for each character from the moment you crack it open.”In Style

“This story is one that needs to be told.”Bust 

“In the near decade since the onset of the Great Recession, few works of fiction have examined what those years felt like for everyday people, how so many continued to hope and plan and love amid pervasive uncertainty. Enter Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue, a Cameroonian American who situates her characters of US shores just as prosperity is beginning to seem like a thing of the past. . . . Behold the Dreamers challenges us all to consider what it takes to make us genuinely content, and how long is too long to live with our dreams deferred.”O Magazine

“A revelation . . . Mbue has written a clever morality tale that never preaches but instead teaches us the power of integrity.”Essence

“At once a sad indictment of the American dream and a gorgeous testament to the enduring bonds of family, Mbue’s powerful first novel will grip and move you right up to its heartfelt ending.”Shelf Awareness

“Mbue proves herself a clear-eyed, unflinching storyteller, and Behold the Dreamers is a fearless, head-on journey into the thorny contemporary issues of American exceptionalism.”Interview

“Gripping and beautifully told.”Good Housekeeping

“Among the spate of novels forged in the crucible of the previous decade, Mbue’s impressive debut deserves a singular place. . . . Realistic, tragic, and still remarkably kind to all its characters, this is a special book.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“The Jongas are . . . vivid, and the book’s unexpected ending—and its sharp-eyed focus on issues of immigration, race, and class—speak to a sad truth in today’s cutthroat world: the American dream isn’t what it seems.”Publishers Weekly

DESCRIPTION:

At what point in life have you officially not made it?

For Steve, Sophia, Dave, and Brooke, life hasn’t turned out as planned. Rather than easy fame and fortune, these happy-go-lucky teenagers of the 1980′s found young adulthood a mystifying series of dead-end jobs, failed relationships, family scandal, and surging frustration.

Now approaching middle age, all they want is to reverse their gradual alienation from life and one another, reconnecting with their earlier, innocent selves.

But there’s a catch. Before any of them can move forward, they must collectively confront that one outrageous night back in college that first drove them apart, revealing secrets potentially shattering everything they ever were.

A blend of hard-edged Contemporary Fiction and raw satire, The Bull Years chronicles the bumpy road many in Generation X took through their 20′s and 30′s. The multi-layered narrative is sure to resonate quite strongly with anyone who’s struggled to find their way, while also remaining true to themselves.

So if you’ve ever wondered why life is so much harder than you ever dreamed, the promised land always just out of reach, then The Bull Years is an experience not to be missed.

DESCRIPTION:

From Nancy Tesler, author of the Amazon bestselling "Other Deadly Things" series, comes a spine-chilling tale of murder and romance.

Samantha Barron, victim advocate for the prosecutor's office, has her world shaken up when former lover Doug Ruark who had thrown her off his elite crisis response team for disobeying orders, insinuates himself into one of her cases. A terrified young girl shows up at Samantha's office blurting out a story about having witnessed a friend being "cast into the abyss" at a Halloween parade; then suddenly bolts crying that she is a Judas, she will face "purgatorial fires" for her betrayal.

Samantha must work with Ruark if she is to find and rescue the girl before the leaders of the malevolent religious cult holding her captive discover that she had recognized the masked killer. Agreeing to go inside the cult house as a perspective convert, Samantha is caught up in a world where power and greed rule, where "love" is given and withdrawn as a brainwashing technique, and life is cheap if you're a trouble-making outsider…

I Hate Myself and Want to Die: The 52 Most Depressing Songs You've Ever Heard by Tom Reynolds

DESCRIPTION:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – May 26th, 2006 – “Ten Things We Love This Week”
3. ‘I HATE MYSELF AND I WANT TO DIE,’ by Tom Reynolds
This roundup of 52 of the most maudlin songs ever penned, from Manilow to Metallica, will move you to tears of despair — or shrieks of helpless laughter.

PLAYBOY – “There must be a section of Tom Reynolds’s record collection that wards off disc jockeys like a cross repels vampires. The writer/TV producer’s steep descent into depressing pop music, I Hate Myself and Want to Die is a humorous song-by-song analysis of the most egregious examples of audio torture. Its title may sound like a hackneyed VH1 special, but Reynolds steps above pointless banter by demonstrating some serious scholarship, exposing gut-wrenching stories behind these songs like the telling fact that the writers of “Without You,” covered by Mariah Carey, both hung themselves….Overall, his picks are solid and stick to chart-topping tragedies, ranging from the Billie Holiday lynching tune “Strange Fruit” (“Black bodies swinging in the Southern breeze”) to a prescient analysis of Johnny Cash’s superior cover of Trent Reznor’s “Hurt.” Reynolds also manages to sneak in some unknown misfires, like his number one pick “The Christmas Shoes,” a Christian adult contemporary Christmas song (already depressing) about poor kids buying slippers for their terminally ill mom to wear in heaven (kill me already).

NEW MUSIC EXPRESS – “Full of premium trivia and pinpoint pomposity pricking, Reynolds has made comedy gold from the full base metal of misery.”

WHAT’S ON IN LONDON – “A sustained and superbly observed insight into some of rock music’s most memorable follies, it is an absolute must-read. Brilliant.”

UNCUT Magazine – “Tom Reynolds, an American TV producer who manages to combine the wit of Dave Barry with the musical tastes of a bath towel, takes a simple concept and pulls great big inappropriate belly laughs from it….Genius.”

Anne Stephenson, THE REPUBLIC – “To write a book like this, you need a working knowledge of music recorded over the past 70 years and an astute and merciless sense of humor. Tom Reynolds is our man.”.

Rob Lester, EDGE MAGAZINE – “What makes this book so worthwhile and more than just cathartic (oh, it is that!) is the humor. Reynolds’ language is colorful and clever and his greatest skills are sarcasm and funny, funny exaggeration for effect… Smug? Absolutely. But it’s mostly a hoot.”

PUCKNATION – “I Hate Myself and Want to Die, is one of the most brilliant looks at music and popular culture I’ve read in a long time. This collection of essays rips through music with ludicrous comments, humor and sarcasm. Reynolds’ knack for timing and wit allows him to tear seemlessly through these songs, with great results….An instant classic and perfect bathroom reading.”

ROCKNWORLD – “Don’tcha just love discovering a book that is too funny to be read in public, that makes eating or drinking while reading it a sure way to choke & die? What makes the subject matter of this book even better is its importance & truth…..His treatments of Evanescence’s entry on the list & Metallica are so funny that I wish I could quote the entire chapters here.”

DESCRIPTION:

The mayor of Fulton Springs, Alabama, has one thing on his mind: His reelection, and the money and power that come with it. He’s an old pro in the political game and quick to sell out the public to special interests if the price is right. He says all his decisions are made in the best interest of his citizens, so they should just shut up and follow the rules.

Restaurant owner, Frank Standish, is tired of having his business hamstrung by all the new taxes and regulations that crop up at each city council meeting helmed by the mayor’s lackeys. The cronies in office are choking off his livelihood and stomping on his freedom. So Frank decides to do something about it.

Backed by a surge of grassroots support, Frank and his family and friends at The Bull, a local bar and barbecue pit, mount a blue-collar revolt against government run amok. Frank runs on a groundbreaking political platform: a promise to serve only a single term on behalf of the freedom-loving citizens of Fulton springs, imposing his own strict term limit to insulate himself from the influence of outside interests. His strategy resonates wildly with the voters who orchestrate an underdog campaign to unseat the mayor — a concerted effort that refuses to be silenced by slanderous propaganda, corrupt authority, vindictive police or even bullets from a gun.

With a red-hot rebellious streak steeped in rich southern tradition, this is the story of Frank Standish and company, who are sick of the city telling them what to do. And they plan to make a change, whether the mayor likes it or not.

1410 A.D. – Battle-hardened warrior and favored of the king, Sir Lucien de Russe is called the Iron Knight because of his indestructibility in battle. An older knight, Lucien is entering his fortieth year and has seen a good deal in his lifetime. But having sustained fairly serious wounds in the most recent rebellions against Henry IV, Lucien retires his sword and spurs, choosing to live out the rest of his life in peace. Physically, he is damaged goods and must heal. Mentally, however, he is already dead.

Having lost his wife many years ago, Lucien has two children – a son who barely acknowledges him and a daughter who is a terror. Lucien finds no joy in life any longer, looking back upon an illustrious career, admired and loved by the fighting men of England, yet inside, he is hollow. It is this existence he has resigned himself to when the king, believing he is doing Lucien a great favor, pledges him to a very young heiress. When the girl and her father show up at Lucien’s home, he makes an escape.

Riding to clear his head, Lucien runs right into a robbery in progress. A fine carriage has been set upon by bandits and Lucien knows he cannot turn away. Begrudgingly, the Iron Knight goes into action once more and saves the occupants of the carriage, a mother and her young daughter.

Lady Sophina de Gournay is a widow, traveling to meet her intended. When the big, handsome knight with the long, dark hair saves her from the outlaws, a simple moment of gratitude turns into something that binds her to Lucien far more than either of them realize. It’s that wonderful chance meeting, a chain of events is started that could destroy them both.

Join Lucien and Sophina in a romance of a lifetime, where second chances at love are something worth fighting for.

Welcome to The Isle…

Lily Locke has never believed in witches and wizards, ghosts and magic, shifters and vampires–especially cute blonde vamps with blood-intolerance issues. A rising star at a hotshot marketing agency in Minneapolis, Minnesota, all Lily knows is that she’s a PowerPoint guru, an Excel ninja, and a coffee-maker extraordinaire. Not to mention she’s next in line for a huge promotion.

All that changes when Lily’s assistant delivers a strange quiz to her, one titled A Magical Assessment for Normal Folks. With it comes the promise of a land she’s never known existed. A land where Lily not only discovers her biological family for the first time, but a place where she can make a difference, change lives, and step into the role she’s destined to fulfill.

But first, Lily must admit she’s a witch. Then, she has to acknowledge that the tall, dark, and mysterious man who offers his help is strictly focused on business…at least, for now. When a body turns up dead and the next target is Lily, she must trust her powers and accept the help of her newfound friends. Otherwise, she’ll never survive the trials of the magical island tucked far, far away in the frigid waters of Lake Superior.

“My Journey Through War and Peace: Explorations of a Young Filmmaker, Feminist and Spiritual Seeker” is based on Melissa Burch’s experiences as a war journalist for BBC, CBS, and other networks. Her team was one of the first documentary crews allowed in the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War, and she was featured in a New York Times story about her time in Afghanistan. She was just in her twenties when she traveled with the mujahideen, filmed an attack on a Soviet convoy, slept with an Afghan commander, and climbed 14,000-foot mountains in the Hindu Kush. “My Journey Through War and Peace” examines how, through outward action and inward exploration, life can unfold in mysterious ways, far beyond cultural and family expectations. In looking back at this momentous decade, Burch shares why she pursued such dangerous and difficult circumstances at such a young age and continued to live on the edge. She now understands that she was seeking self-discovery, a connection to something greater, and ultimately inner peace. This exciting memoir will resonate with fans of “Eat Pray Love,” “Wild,” and other popular memoirs that describe extraordinary inner and outer journeys.

My actions told me I was an adventurer at heart. However, soon I realized life was not just about being on the road. I began to broaden my thinking. I considered the bigger picture. What were the benefits of doing all this? More importantly, how is this helping anyone else besides me? Is the road even benefiting me or am I lost in my self-delusion? After six years of pursuing my adventures, I began to think what would be the best way to give back. I sat down and asked myself, what do I know? How can I present what I know? And how can it best benefit people?

This book is the result of seeking an answer to these questions. By combining poetry, personal stories, and descriptive narratives, this book delivers a one of a kind piece aiming to merge skills, passion and vision and makes a compelling argument to get out and hit the Road of Life.

Entertaining, insightful, and inspirational, this book presents the value of the road and how to utilize it to succeed in many aspects of life.

Like the road, this book has a direction of education, but leaves room for the reader to explore and find value in areas specific to them.

Surrender, New York: A Novelby Caleb Carr

NEW RELEASE

Available at

Deal availability may change without notice! Prices may vary from store to store. Due to international copyright, availability and pricing may vary outside of the US.

DESCRIPTION:

Caleb Carr, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Alienist and The Angel of Darkness, returns with a contemporary, edge-of-your-seat thriller featuring criminal psychologist Dr. Trajan Jones, the world’s leading expert on the life and work of one Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, the hero of The Alienist, in whose brilliant but unconventional footsteps he follows.

In the small town of Surrender in upstate New York, Dr. Jones, a psychological profiler, and Dr. Michael Li, a trace evidence expert, teach online courses in profiling and forensic science from Jones’s family farm. Once famed advisors to the New York City Police Department, Trajan and Li now work in exile, having made enemies of those in power. Protected only by farmhands and Jones’s unusual “pet,” the outcast pair is unexpectedly called in to consult on a disturbing case.

In rural Burgoyne County, a pattern of strange deaths has emerged: adolescent boys and girls are found murdered in gruesome fashion. Senior law enforcement officials are quick to blame a serial killer, yet their efforts to apprehend this criminal are peculiarly ineffective.

Jones and Li soon discover that the victims are all “throwaway children,” a new state classification of young people who are neither orphans, runaways, nor homeless, but who are abandoned by their families and left to fend for themselves. Two of these throwaways, Lucas Kurtz and his older sister, Ambyr, cross paths with Jones and Li, offering information that could blow the case wide open.

As the stakes grow higher, Jones and Li must not only unravel the mystery of how the throwaways died but also defend themselves and the Kurtz siblings against shadowy agents who don’t want the truth to get out. Jones believes the real story leads back to the city where both he and Dr. Kreizler did their greatest work. But will Jones and Li be able to trace the case to New York before they fall victim to the murderous forces that stalk them?

Tautly paced and richly researched, Surrender, New York brings to life the grim underbelly of a prosperous nation—and those most vulnerable to its failings. This brilliant novel marks another milestone in Caleb Carr’s triumphant literary suspense career.

Advance praise for Surrender, New York

“A compulsive read . . . Carr once again delivers a high-stakes thriller featuring a new band of clever, determined outcasts. . . . With gut-punching twists and the potential for a sequel, this intelligent, timely thriller will be savored by Carr’s fans and new readers alike.”Booklist (starred review)

“[A] whodunit that weds leisurely nineteenth-century storytelling with twenty-first-century unpleasantness . . . Carr’s story poses an utterly modern question: for a career-minded politico, which is worse, a child-neglect scandal or a serial killer on the loose? We get to see both at work, including some nicely nasty mayhem. . . . Carr’s many fans will find this well worth the wait.”Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the works of Caleb Carr

The Alienist is:

“A high-spirited, charged-up and unfailingly smart thriller.”Los Angeles Times

“A first-rate tale of crime and punishment that will keep readers guessing until the final pages.”Entertainment Weekly

“Gripping, atmospheric . . . intelligent and entertaining.”USA Today

The Angel of Darkness is:

“As winning a historical thriller as The Alienist. . . . The reader keeps right on turning the pages.”—The New York Times

DESCRIPTION:

1410 A.D. – Battle-hardened warrior and favored of the king, Sir Lucien de Russe is called the Iron Knight because of his indestructibility in battle. An older knight, Lucien is entering his fortieth year and has seen a good deal in his lifetime. But having sustained fairly serious wounds in the most recent rebellions against Henry IV, Lucien retires his sword and spurs, choosing to live out the rest of his life in peace. Physically, he is damaged goods and must heal. Mentally, however, he is already dead.

Having lost his wife many years ago, Lucien has two children – a son who barely acknowledges him and a daughter who is a terror. Lucien finds no joy in life any longer, looking back upon an illustrious career, admired and loved by the fighting men of England, yet inside, he is hollow. It is this existence he has resigned himself to when the king, believing he is doing Lucien a great favor, pledges him to a very young heiress. When the girl and her father show up at Lucien’s home, he makes an escape.

Riding to clear his head, Lucien runs right into a robbery in progress. A fine carriage has been set upon by bandits and Lucien knows he cannot turn away. Begrudgingly, the Iron Knight goes into action once more and saves the occupants of the carriage, a mother and her young daughter.

Lady Sophina de Gournay is a widow, traveling to meet her intended. When the big, handsome knight with the long, dark hair saves her from the outlaws, a simple moment of gratitude turns into something that binds her to Lucien far more than either of them realize. It’s that wonderful chance meeting, a chain of events is started that could destroy them both.

Join Lucien and Sophina in a romance of a lifetime, where second chances at love are something worth fighting for.

DESCRIPTION:

“My Journey Through War and Peace: Explorations of a Young Filmmaker, Feminist and Spiritual Seeker” is based on Melissa Burch’s experiences as a war journalist for BBC, CBS, and other networks. Her team was one of the first documentary crews allowed in the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War, and she was featured in a New York Times story about her time in Afghanistan. She was just in her twenties when she traveled with the mujahideen, filmed an attack on a Soviet convoy, slept with an Afghan commander, and climbed 14,000-foot mountains in the Hindu Kush. “My Journey Through War and Peace” examines how, through outward action and inward exploration, life can unfold in mysterious ways, far beyond cultural and family expectations. In looking back at this momentous decade, Burch shares why she pursued such dangerous and difficult circumstances at such a young age and continued to live on the edge. She now understands that she was seeking self-discovery, a connection to something greater, and ultimately inner peace. This exciting memoir will resonate with fans of “Eat Pray Love,” “Wild,” and other popular memoirs that describe extraordinary inner and outer journeys.

DESCRIPTION:

Winner of Inkitt’s Dreamlands contest, this is the first book in an exciting new fantasy series.

Kali and Stonewall have to find a way to work together in order to survive, but she’s a mage and he’s taken an oath to protect the world from magic.

Magic is new to the country of Aredia. Mages are enslaved for their abilities, locked behind high walls and guarded by sentinels – elite warriors with an unnatural immunity to magic.

Kali, a crippled mage who longs to escape her painful past, travels to meet a powerful healer in Whitewater City. But on the way her sentinel escort is decimated by monstrous raiders, leaving her with a single guardian, Stonewall: a sentinel with nothing but his chosen name and his faith in the gods. Together, Kali and Stonewall must learn to work together to survive a harrowing journey while demonic creatures from the north invade their lands.

Meanwhile, the mages and sentinels of Whitewater City are drawing battle lines and preparing for war – against one another.

What will await them should they ever reach their destination?

Reviews

“I love the world-building–”burnies,” the sentinels, the fifth tiers, how the mages work with magic, etc. It was fun to get inside Kali and Stonewall’s heads, along with Milo and even Commander Talon, scary as she seems. I can’t wait to read future installments!” Kassie Grace

“Loved the world, pace and characters, loves it all! From the mystery and plight of Kali to the awesome ethical dilemma of Stonewall, I can’t wait to see where their paths take them. There is magic but it’s with a light touch, which is the way I like it! Character driven page turner, I need more!” WD40

“Fantasy is not usually my go-to genre, but I couldn’t put this book down since I came across it. Overall, the plot was described beautifully and characters were developed in a way that made readers attached to them, fearing for their safety at every twist and turn. Would definitely recommend to all my fantasy loving friends.” Vanessa C.

“Definitely a page-turner. A read for one of those rainy days, to just burry yourself under your blanket and follow the fantastic adventures of Kali and Stonewall.” - Danielle
