DESCRIPTION:

The Lonely American bids fair to be the great story of Vietnam, full of unforgettable characters and showing the war as history and literature have never quite managed to portray it. More than anything, The Lonely American is an inspirational tale that touches the reader and gives the gift of greater life, as only literature can do.
Saigon, 1962; the United States is trying to help the South Vietnamese government defeat a communist insurgency. An American Air Force officer, David Emerson, meets a lovely young woman, Lucie Hong. David has a girlfriend back home, but Lucie arouses feelings in him that he can’t control; and Lucie is swept off her feet.
David disappears into the war and becomes a hero of the Air Force, flying 47 missions without a scratch to himself. But he never forgets Lucie. Some years after they’ve separated, he finds her, and she tells him about Emma, the daughter he gave her.
Unlike so many others, David is not a man to love and run. When Saigon falls to the communists, David, leaving his wife and young son in California, hurries back to a flaming city which most people are trying to escape, desperately determined to rescue Lucie and Emma. They are nowhere to be found.
Years go by; as tragedy strikes his own family, David manages to locate Lucie and Emma in France, and goes there. Lucie is lost to him, while Emma loathes and mistrusts him.

Over Time: My Life As a Sportswriterby Frank Deford

BARGAIN

Available through May 29 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:

Over Time: My Life as a Sportswriter is as unconventional and wide-ranging as Frank Deford’s remarkable career, in which he has chronicled the heroes and the characters of just about every sport in nearly every medium. Deford joined Sports Illustrated in 1962, fresh, and fresh out of Princeton. In 1990, he was Editor-in-Chief of The National Sports Daily, one of the most ambitious—and ill-fated—projects in the history of American print journalism. But then, he’s endured: writing ten novels, winning an Emmy (not to mention being a fabled Lite Beer All-Star), and last week he read something like his fourteen-hundredth commentary on NPR’s “Morning Edition.”

From the Mad Men-like days of SI in the ‘60s, and the “bush” years of the early NBA, to Deford’s visit to apartheid South Africa with Arthur Ashe, and his friend’s brave and tragic death, Over Time is packed with intriguing people and stories. Interwoven through his personal history, Deford lovingly traces the entire arc of American sportswriting from the lurid early days of the Police Gazette, through Grantland Rice and Red Smith and on up to ESPN. This is a wonderful, inspired book—equal parts funny and touching—a treasure for sports fans. Just like Frank Deford.


Praise for Over Time

“Equal doses of self-deprecating humor and anecdotal history of American sports journalism are the essence of Frank Deford’s entertaining new memoir.”—Chicago Tribune

“Deford is the Holy Grail. He’s simply one of the greatest sportswriters of all time. … [Over Time] has a little bit of everything — great stories about interviewing everyone from Richard Nixon … to Jerry Jones. … Deford played with the Harlem Globetrotters, introduced the world to Bill Bradley, really disliked Rodney Dangerfield, edited the only national sports daily in our history (The National), and has great takes on the history and characters of Sports Illustrated in its formative years. . . . Deford’s the best.”—Peter King, SI.com

“He sketches insightful remembrances of stars like Wilt Chamberlain and Billie Jean King and lavishes affection and admiration on Sports Illustrated colleagues Andre Laguerre, Dan Jenkins, and the ‘tortured’ writer Mark Kram … [Deford is] sports writing’s Sinatra.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“Endearing… Over Time imparts a sense of a life well lived and fully enjoyed.”—New York Times

“The mixture of homage to sportswriters who came before him, such as Grantland Rice; sometimes wistful vignettes of sports figures like Arthur Ashe; and his own personal reflections on the evolution of sports journalism combine to offer a cultural perspective that transcends a mere job.” —Publishers Weekly (Top 10 in Sports)

“Deford’s cred is incredible, his accolades deserved… He does not pull a punch when it comes to boxing or even to the tastes-great, less-filling Miller Lite commercials he once made… [Deford] has long been the genuine article.” —Los Angeles Times

“A cool ride through Deford’s career.”— Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“Frank Deford is the best there is. His memoir Over Time is beautiful, funny, poignant and poetic.” —Buzz Bissinger, author of Friday Night Lights and Father’s Day

“A wonderful book. Over Time is both a treasure and a treasury.”—Sally Jenkins, Washington Post columnist and New York Times bestselling author of It’s Not About the Bike

“Frank Deford is the best sportswriter I’ve ever read. If there’s a Mount Rushmore of sportswriting, Deford is up there, purple ties and all.”—Tony Kornheiser

Available through May 27 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:

In the unlikely event of an emergency… hope for an unlikely hero.

Bartholomew Barton didn’t have a clue why the two couples he sat sandwiched between needed to be so damned amorous. He certainly hadn’t acted that way when he had been married–none of the times. Maybe the couples mistook the particularly nasty turbulence for their last moments together. If so, how right they would soon be.

The contagious epidemic starts in the first class cabin of the 747 with a cantankerous Mr. Patterson Zorn. An acrimonious husband, Patterson berates his wife as his cough deteriorates into a deathly state, whereupon the infected is reduced to his most basic necessity: hunger. Patterson yearns for protein, and soon learns to enjoy his wife in an entirely new way.

In this terrifying novel, author Joshua Wright pens a tightly wound, unapologetic, zombie-inspired horror story. Lurid descriptions of carnage aboard the chaos of a doomed 747 mix with memories from complex characters as they face their penultimate moments. The Unlikely Event is the first short novel of a planned pentalogy telling the story of a condemned planet, and the heroes who will try in vain to save her.

You work hard at a frantic pace, but you end up feeling frustrated because there’s not enough time to do everything.

Then they sit around and wonder why they’re not getting significant results in their lives.

What’s the solution?

Rethink the way you manage your daily life.

Specifically, you should use multiple lists that cover different types of task. That’s the core concept you’ll learn in the following book: “To-Do List Makeover: A Simple Guide to Getting the Important Things Done.”

Secrets of Paris: An Insider’s Guideby Vernon Coleman

$0.99

Available through May 27 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:

A bestselling book for sophisticated travellers who want to understand Paris and the Parisians, and who appreciate English humour. ‘Secrets of Paris’ contains no museum guides, time tables or hotel phone numbers but is a light hearted, loving, much praised introduction to the heart and soul of the city by a bestselling writer who loves Paris and knows it well. Readers will require stout reading fingers, a packet of sandwiches and be able to appreciate irony. This is a personal notebook, not a guide book.
This book about Paris contains the sort of gossipy, inside information that a friend who knows Paris well would give you. Dr Vernon Coleman FRSA, an international bestselling author whose books have been published in 25 languages, has been visiting Paris for over half a century and has had an apartment there since the 1990s. He knows and understand the modern city (and the Parisians) intimately and knows far more about the city’s history than most travel writers and tourist guides. The book is packed with secrets and advice but it’s also funny and enormously readable. A sparkling introduction to Paris and the French by someone whose love for the city shines through brightly. Contains information on getting to know Paris and understanding France and the French. There is a list of 20 things you must do in Paris and 10 things NOT worth doing.
Selected as Book of the Month by `French’ magazine and highly praised by `Destination France’ and other expert reviewers.
`Is it travel writing or reference? Actually it cleverly manages to combine both .Before you’ve finished reading I guarantee you’ll be planning a visit.
Secrets of Paris gives you just that – an insight into Parisian life, packed with local and personal anecdotes, and historical and socio-political information. Refreshingly, this isn’t just a trite travel book but a readable, funny and intelligent guide to what to do and what not to do and see in the city. Imagine getting top tips from a trusted friend who has lived in Paris for a few years.’ – French Magazine
`This isn’t a guide book although its sub-title is Paris for Beginners, an Insider’s Guide. Rather, it’s a witty series of observations about life in Paris. A prolific writer Coleman has sold over two million books in the UK alone, covering genres (such as) medical matters and novels. He writes amusingly about flowers, the elderly, notaires, zebra crossings, hotels and almost anything else you can think of. There’s a list of 10 things not worth doing (including visiting the Bois de Boulogne) and 20 things you must do in Paris (from visiting Pere Lachaise to having a drink at Les Deux Magots or Café Flore). Hugely entertaining.’ – Destination France
`Vernon Coleman…now gives us the sort of gossipy inside information that a friend who knows Paris well would give you…packed with secrets and advice, but also funny and enormously readable. A sparkling introduction to Paris and the French.’ – Stewart Peterson, Greenock Telegraph
`Hugely enjoyable.’ – Carol McGiffin

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

The Poisonwood Bibleby Barbara Kingsolver

BARGAIN

Available through May 26 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:

The Poisonwood Bible is a story told by the wife and four daughters of Nathan Price, a fierce, evangelical Baptist who takes his family and mission to the Belgian Congo in 1959. They carry with them everything they believe they will need from home, but soon find that all of it—from garden seeds to Scripture—is calamitously transformed on African soil. What follows is a suspenseful epic of one family’s tragic undoing and remarkable reconstruction over the course of three decades in postcolonial Africa.

The novel is set against one of the most dramatic political chronicles of the twentieth century: the Congo’s fight for independence from Belgium, the murder of its first elected prime minister, the CIA coup to install his replacement, and the insidious progress of a world economic order that robs the fledgling African nation of its autonomy. Against this backdrop, Orleanna Price reconstructs the story of her evangelist husband’s part in the Western assault on Africa, a tale indelibly darkened by her own losses and unanswerable questions about her own culpability. Also narrating the story, by turns, are her four daughters—the self-centered, teenaged Rachel; shrewd adolescent twins Leah and Adah; and Ruth May, a prescient five-year-old. These sharply observant girls, who arrive in the Congo with racial preconceptions forged in 1950s Georgia, will be marked in surprisingly different ways by their father’s intractable mission, and by Africa itself. Ultimately each must strike her own separate path to salvation. Their passionately intertwined stories become a compelling exploration of moral risk and personal responsibility.

Dancing between the dark comedy of human failings and the breathtaking possibilities of human hope, The Poisonwood Bible possesses all that has distinguished Barbara Kingsolver’s previous work, and extends this beloved writer’s vision to an entirely new level. Taking its place alongside the classic works of postcolonial literature, this ambitious novel establishes Kingsolver as one of the most thoughtful and daring of modern writers.

DESCRIPTION:

Just because you don’t believe in something doesn’t mean it can’t kill you.

Trent Walker is a mentalist who makes his living off of people believing in magic and the afterlife, even though he doesn’t believe in anything other than logic and sleight of hand.

The two hundred residents of the strange, isolated town of Whittier, Alaska, are convinced that vengeful spirits and a horrific curse have doomed them to lives of eternal darkness.

When Trent finds himself trapped in Whittier with no way to leave until the next morning, he’s forced to escape the townspeople, reassess his own beliefs, and fight for his life against unnatural forces that his logical mind can’t explain.

DESCRIPTION:

I was about six years old and a bit feisty. Some things never change. My mama was fussing at me–so I decided to run away. Mama saw me packing a suitcase and asked what I was doing. “I’m running away,” I told her. She informed me that it was probably for the best since she was so mean and all. She only had one condition: I was not allowed to take anything that she or my daddy had bought for me. We went through my Hello Kitty suitcase together and removed all such items–which left me with nothing, not even a suitcase.

Mama cleared her throat and said, “Those shoes . . . we bought them . . . and the socks . . . and the shorts . . . and the shirt . . . oh, and those panties.” Butt-naked, with my hand on my hip, I grabbed the lip gloss I had purchased with my own money and marched right out the door. I hopped on my bike, which was a gift from my godparents, and rode down the street to our music minister and his wife’s house. I told them how my mama had taken away everything I owned but my lip gloss and my bicycle. I asked them if I could live with them. –Emily Bray, 38 years old, Memory Project Participant

Little Cabin on the Trail inspires folks to assign great value to their seemingly insignificant memories and encourages them to use those memories to become their family storytellers. Personal stories give everyone permission to pause and consider that there really is a bigger picture, an eternal picture, where past, present, and future generations are linked, not only through their blood, but through their stories. Little Cabin on the Trail will certainly entertain readers with its view into one very ordinary family’s life; but more importantly, it will help them to realize that they, too, have stories just begging to be told–better stories . . . because they are theirs.

Visual Fractions: A Beginning Fractions Book (2014 Digital Edition) by Dr. Pi Squared

Visual Fractions: A Beginning Fractions Book (2014 Digital Edition)by Dr. Pi Squared

$0.99

Available through May 25 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:

Designed to be read on a color device (as most of the questions ask about red, blue, yellow, and other colors). This math workbook from the Dr. Pi Squared Math Workbooks series aims to teach what a fraction is and help kids visualize fractions. It is designed for kids who are just learning about fractions. The problems consist of colorful pictures from which kids are to determine fractions. The book begins with circles cut into pie slices, from halves to twelfths. The students need to determine what fraction of each pie is blue, yellow, and red. For example, if a pie is divided into fourths, two of which are blue, one yellow, and the other red, the student would answer one-half, one-fourth, and one-fourth. After ample practice with pie slices, the workbook moves onto triangles, squares, and hexagons. A couple of pages include groups of circles where kids need to determine fractions greater than one – for example, two and a half circles might be colored green. Other visual fraction problems include rectangles, smiley faces, arrows, letters, and numbers. Toward the end of the workbook, some questions ask about more than just colors – like what fraction of the arrows point up, or what fraction of the letters are vowels. Answers are nicely organized through footnotes to allow students, parents, or teachers to quickly check the answers.

DESCRIPTION:

Welcome to Auburn, where fresh baked cookies hold the key to your future, and a melody carries the secrets of your past.

Mina Fairchild keeps to herself, and that’s the way she likes it. Her secluded life protects the secrets she hides, as well as a certain peculiarity that even people in the colorful town of Auburn, Nebraska find strange.

But when her movie-star sister Bernadette shows up on her sofa, Mina’s cozy bungalow is overrun with paparazzi. One dark eyed reporter seems to see straight into Mina’s soul and her world begins to crumble. It’s bad enough when he noses around her secrets, but then he starts digging for information about her mother, and Mina can’t let that happen.

Bernadette fled her Hollywood life after her boyfriend’s affair caused her to do things that sent the tabloids flying off the racks. Now she’s facing the sister she hasn’t spoken to in eight years, and an ex-fiancé, to whom she owes more than an explanation. While she’s not sure she can tell them the truth, she’s determined to make things right, even if that means America’s Sweetheart waits tables in a small-town diner.

Trouble is, this prodigal return has unraveled more than the sisters realize. When a body is discovered, and a strange woman comes to Bernadette pleading for help, Auburn encounters a decades old mystery that causes Mina to question the very people she’s been protecting, and threatens the few people she’s close to.

This is the book that started it all! The basis for the smash hit Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, Gregory Maguire’s breathtaking New York Times bestseller Wicked views the land of Oz, its inhabitants, its Wizard, and the Emerald City, through a darker and greener (not rosier) lens. Brilliantly inventive, Wicked offers us a radical new evaluation of one of the most feared and hated characters in all of literature: the much maligned Wicked Witch of the West who, as Maguire tells us, wasn’t nearly as Wicked as we imagined.
