Breaking Bad showrunner Vince Gilligan wants to believe that heaven exists, but he “can’t not” believe there’s a hell.

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:

What was the significance of the pyramid of fruit which confronted Elizabeth Bennet at Pemberley? Or of the cold beef eaten by Willoughby on his journey of repentance to see Marianne?

Why is it so appropriate that the scene of Emma’s disgrace should be a picnic, and how do the different styles of housekeeping in Mansfield Park relate to the social issues of the day?

While Jane Austen does not luxuriate in cataloguing meals in the way of Victorian novelists, food in fact plays a vital part in her novels.

Her mainly domestic plots are deeply imbued with the rituals of giving and sharing meals. The attitudes of her characters to eating, to housekeeping and to hospitality are important indicators of their moral worth. This culminates in the artistic triumph of Emma, in which repeated references to food not only contribute to the portrait of her world, but provide an extended metaphor for the interdependence of a community.

In this original, lively and well-researched book, Maggie Lane not only offers a fresh perspective on the novels of Jane Austen, but illuminates a fascinating period of food history, as England stood on the brink…

No one ever said life was going to be easy.

Already she’s dumped the show and landed a role in a serious play, with serious actors and a more-than-serious director. And now another opportunity has arisen – a major fantasy film with a role that seems tailor-made for her.

The only problem being that she’s in competition with four other scheming actresses to win the role.

Can she win the part? Does she want to win the part? She has to navigate her way through the demands of the press, the Russian billionaire owner of the newspaper running the competition, boyfriends past and present, her soldier brother and a particularly ambitious (read: nasty) competitor.

And all of them underestimate her.

Building towards an enthralling climax, Actress examines one person’s struggle to come to terms with who she is, what’s important to her and – crucially – what she really wants.

DESCRIPTION:

It isn’t until Donald Roth meets his son’s future in-laws that he realizes he is tired of a three-speed life. Time to move up.

When Donald was a kid in the late 60′s on the South Side of Chicago, he had a Schwinn Sting Ray bike. Everyone did. But everyone else had a five-speed. Donald’s was a three-speed. It was good enough, as was explained by his parents, just as their Ford Maverick wasn’t the neighbor’s Le Mans, but it was good enough. And that’s the way Donald was taught to live his life. It was a three-speed life. It was good enough.

He marries Emily because she’s good enough. Emily marries Donald because that’s what she had planned, and she is not going to experience divorce as did her parents. Donald opens a law practice with his two best friends and roommates from college because it’s good enough.

Then the Roths meet their son’s future in-laws and everything changes.

Donald wonders if, in fact, he could get that five-speed.

In this hilarious and thought-provoking novel, the whole concept of morals and convention is turned inside out. Everything is perception. If you like…

The Lazarus Initiative: A Novel by Steven Savile

The Lazarus Initiative: A Novelby Steven Savile

Available through August 15 at

DESCRIPTION:

A brand new novel by the best selling and award winning authors Steven Savile and David Sakmyster.

THE LAZARUS INITIATIVE

After a Near Death Experience (an ‘NDE’)
radically transforms the life of eccentric billionaire Nicholas
Sheridan, he becomes obsessed with understanding the experience,
recreating the conditions that opened the gate to the unknown.

After
recruiting others with similar experiences, they discover amazing
connections, common visions and dramatic abilities among people who have
come back from the dead. But what they haven’t bargained for is that
the gate opens both ways. Something has escaped from death and is
hunting them. Something hungry…

ABOUT THE LAZARUS INITIATIVE:

We set out to write something fans
of shows we enjoyed, things like Medium and Afterlife, and fused them
with the raw energy of 24 and other thrillers, keeping the emphasis on
the supernatural but very deliberately away from anything horrific. We
released part one and part two as novellas a couple of years ago, then
decided to wait until the series was complete to release it as a full
novel instead of drip-feeding readers 80-100 pages at a time, so we’re
delighted to unleash…

Family Man: The Art of Surviving Domestic Tranquility by Rob Jenkins

Family Man: The Art of Surviving Domestic Tranquilityby Rob Jenkins

FREE

Available through August 15 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:

Family Man: The Art of Surviving Domestic Tranquility is a book for men, about men. It’s also a book for women, about men. But don’t worry, guys. It doesn’t give away all your secrets — Just most of them.

Family Man is the kind of book that you can curl up with in a corner and enjoy all day. It’s also the kind of book that you can leave in your bathroom’s magazine rack to be enjoyed periodically during those special alone times. It might even come in handy in case of a toilet paper emergency. That’s why we made the pages so soft and pliable.

But most of all, this book isn’t about just any family, it’s about your family. And if you call yourself a family man, then you need to read it, or at least your wife needs to read it and tell you what’s in it and perhaps hit you over the head with it from time to time. That’s why we made the cover so hard and durable.
