To the Lighthouse - by Virginia Woolf (Paperback)
Number of Pages: 209Genre: Fiction + Literature GenresSub-Genre: ClassicsFormat: PaperbackPublisher: Harvest BooksAge Range: AdultAuthor: Virginia WoolfLanguage: English About the Book A landmark of modern fiction, Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse explores thesubjective reality of everyday life in the Hebrides for the Ramsay family. Book Synopsis "There were little daily miracles, illuminations, matches struck unexpectedly in the dark." To the Lighthouse is made up of three powerfully charged visions into the life of the Ramsay family living in a summer house off the rocky coast of Scotland. There's the serene and maternal Mrs. Ramsay, the tragic yet absurd Mr. Ramsay, their eight children, and assorted holiday guests. From the seemingly trivial postponement of a visit to a nearby lighthouse, Woolf examines tensions and allegiances and shows the small joys and quiet tragedies of everyday life that seemingly could go on forever. But as time winds its way through their lives, the Ramsays face, alone and together, the greatest of human challenges and its greatest triumph--the human capacity for change. A moving portrait in miniature of family life, To the Lighthouse also has profoundly universal implications, giving language to the silent space that separates people and the space that they transgress to reach each other. "Radiant as [To the Lighthouse] is in its beauty, there could never be a mistake about it: here is a novel to the last degree severe and uncompromising. I think that beyond being about the very nature of reality, it is itself a vision of reality."--Eudora Welty, from the Introduction

The Death of Stalin - (Hardcover)
Number of Pages: 120Genre: Comics + Graphic NovelsSub-Genre: Historical FictionFormat: HardcoverPublisher: Titan ComicsAge Range: TeenLanguage: English About the Book "Although inspired by real events, this book is nonetheless a work of fiction: artistic license has been used to construct a story from historical evidence that was at best patchy, at times partial, and often contradictory"--page  Book Synopsis The graphic novel that inspired the new Armando Iannucci movie which includes an all-star cast - Steve Buscemi, Simon Russell Beale, Jason Isaacs, Michael Palin, and Jeffrey Tambor. Fear, corruption and treachery abound in this political satire set in the aftermath of Stalin's death in the Soviet Union in 1953. When the leader of the Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin, has a stroke - the political gears begin to turn, plunging the super-state into darkness, uncertainty and near civil war. The struggle for supreme power will determine the fate of the nation and of the world. And it all really happened. Review Quotes Within minutes of starting to read the graphic novel, I knew I wanted to make the movie version. - Armando Iannucci, writer/director (The Death of Stalin, Veep, In The Loop, The Thick of It) Read the Death of Stalin and just loved it. I started laughing the moment he died! - David Mandel, showrunner of HBO's Veep, writer of Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld, and SNL Oozing with sleazy, appalling chicanery, the narrative by writer Nury (I Am Legion) and artist Robin (Death to the Tsar) captures a turbulent and disturbing period with solid visual storytelling. Robin depicts the sordid goings-on with elegant caricatures that give a clear view of the complete and utter awfulness of the cast, adding enough historical flair to nail down the era. It's proof of the theory that tragedy plus time equals (very dark) comedy. - Publishers Weekly Juicy and engrossing, this story speaks of a style in political machinations going back centuries and inspiring both revulsion and twisted admiration. - Library Journal It's a fun take on history that'll have you researching what's true and what's close to the truth. But the key is, through all the weird, the story is beyond entertaining. 9 out of 10 - Graphic Policy One of the better political comedies to grace the comics page in recent years... expertly handled by writer Fabien Nury and artists Theirry Robin and Lorien Aureyre - Vulture If you like scathing black comedy with a lot on its mind, you can't do better than The Death of Stalin. 9 out of 10 - Capeless Crusader It doesn't matter if you're into historical events, everyone needs to pick this novel up. - Yelling About Comics An entertaining novel - Flickering Myth A wonderful political thriller with some insight to the state of the USSR at the time of Stalin's death - Rogues Portal A fascinating examination of insanity and treachery - Multiversity Comics The book is visually striking and unexpectedly cinematic - Shelf Abuse A fantastic, satirical take on the course of events. - Grovel About the Author Fabien Nury - Born in France in 1976, Fabien Nury is a critically acclaimed comics writer. Thierry Robin - Born in 1958 in Damery, Thierry Robin was first introduced to comics while attending the School of Fine Arts in Reims. His partnership with Fabien Nury has garnered critical and commercial success, first with The Death of Stalin and subsequently The Death of The Tsar.

A decade later, their marriage is still the envy of their friends, but ... things are even more complicated and remarkable than they have seemed"-- Book Synopsis NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A FINALIST FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARDNAMED A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR BY: THE WASHINGTON POST, NPR, TIME, THE SEATTLE TIMES, MINNEAPOLIS STAR-TRIBUNE, SLATE, LIBRARY JOURNAL, KIRKUS, AND MANY MORE "Lauren Groff is a writer of rare gifts, and Fates and Furies is an unabashedly ambitious novel that delivers - with comedy, tragedy, well-deployed erudition and unmistakable glimmers of brilliance throughout." --The New York Times Book Review (cover review) From the award-winning, New York Times-bestselling author of The Monsters of Templeton, Arcadia, Florida and Matrix, an exhilarating novel about marriage, creativity, art, and perception. Fates and Furies is a literary masterpiece that defies expectation. A dazzling examination of a marriage, it is also a portrait of creative partnership written by one of the best writers of her generation. Every story has two sides. Every relationship has two perspectives. And sometimes, it turns out, the key to a great marriage is not its truths but its secrets. At the core of this rich, expansive, layered novel, Lauren Groff presents the story of one such marriage over the course of twenty-four years. At age twenty-two, Lotto and Mathilde are tall, glamorous, madly in love, and destined for greatness.

Fates and Furies is a clear-the-ground triumph." --Ron Charles, The Washington Post "Thrillingly good--precise, lyrical, rich, both worldly and epically transfiguring... Groff is an original writer, whose books are daringly nonconformist... The prose is not only beautiful and vigorously alert; it insists on its own heroic registration, and lifts this story of a modern marriage out of the mundane." --James Wood, The New Yorker "Lauren Groff rips at the seams of an outwardly perfect marriage in her enchanting novel Fates and Furies." --Vanity Fair "[Fates and Furies] is a stunning 360-degree view of a complex relationship... There's almost nothing that [Groff is] not interested in and her skill set is breathtaking...It's an incredibly ambitious work, she writes like her hands are on fire." --Richard Russo, NPR's Morning Edition "We can't help but be fascinated by the possibility of what goes on behind closed doors--especially if there's a glam, madly-in-love couple on the other side. Meet Mathilde and Lotto. Groff's novel unfolds in a he said/she said gutting drama that you won't be able to resist." - Marie Claire "Sentence by sentence, this novel, like [Groff's] others, is a thoroughbred. Measured by its narrative tricks, however, it is a Trojan horse. Groff's story of a marriage in which neither partner truly understands the other uses a sophisticated technique to tell its simple story, subverting our expectations with a two-voice counterpoint as meaningful as it is dazzling." --TIME "[This] story is a storm you hope won't blow over: surprising, wild, with pockets of calm that build anticipation for the next squall... Groff scours her characters, laying them bare so questions of likability are moot. If, in the end, everyone is flawed, everyone also attains a kind of nobility." --O, The Oprah Magazine "The book is a master class in best lines...It's that good. That beautiful. Occasionally, that stunning." --NPR.org "The Florida author's third novel is billed as her most ambitious yet, filled with sex, rage and revenge." --The Wall Street Journal "Elaborate, sensual...a writer whose books are too exotic and unusual to be missed.--The New York Times "Audacious and gorgeous .... The result is not only deliciously voyeuristic but also wise on the simultaneous comforts and indignities of romantic partnership." --LA Times "[A] rich, tricky novel... Groff is a fantastically vivid writer... it's hard to stop reading." --Entertainment Weekly "A recounting of a 25-year marriage looks way different when told from both sides of the bed." --Cosmopolitan "A playful and riveting read that questions whether love can be true when it's wrapped in falsehoods." --People "Renders majestic even the most familiar moments of everyday life... Groff's writing is striking and revelatory." --USA Today "[Groff has the] ability to write dazzlingly about sexual matters. --Vogue "A delirious, exhilarating and heartbreaking ride through the decades of one fable-like marriage ... The author demands the reader to participate, to engage deeply in order to take in all of the mysteries, flaws and triumphs of this one relationship. Read it, relish it and be sad when the ride is over." --San Francisco Chronicle "Groff breaks the novel form open at the seams... What's different and remarkable about Groff's third novel can be summarized in two little words: the writing. Groff is a prose virtuoso, and in Fates and Furies she offers up her writerly gifts in all their glory." --The Chicago Tribune "Groff's command of allusions, imagery, and the puzzle pieces of her characters and plot thrill. So do her words, phrases, and sentences, which bubble up like poetry." --The Boston Globe "[Fates and Furies] is capacious, messy, and bold... Groff's hard, realist vision of marriage -- not the fairy-tale voices of the fates that embroider it -- gives her novel its considerable force." --LA Review of Books "Groff's novel keenly probes the different ways that men's and women's creativity and human value are assessed." --The Guardian "Watching a relationship from its inception to its quiet demise is a perverse pleasure... . Lifting the curtain on the front of a perfect marriage and finding a messy pile of emotions heaped on infidelities is strangely satisfying; reading about the nasty bits in prose as elegant and cutting as Groff's is icing on the cake." --Gawker "Groff's boldness pays off... the title evokes images of Greek mythology in all its vicious glory as Groff examines a marriage by dosing it with epic overtones and filling it with the sort of themes the gods themselves would appreciate: jealousy; betrayal; art; death; love; revenge." --Miami Herald "For all the homage Groff pays to the comforting rituals comprising a marriage, her novel is also attuned to how little we'll ever know, even of those we know best. Fates and Furies will induce such reflection. Involving the bed you've made. The loved ones you've made it with. And whether you're living your life there or just sleeping it away." --Milwaukee Journal Sentinel "Fates and Furies is wholly complex, dramatic, and riveting - an exploration of love, betrayal, perception, and the destructive power of secrets. Groff's novel's crackling energy makes it the perfect read for fall." --Buzzfeed "Each page contains sumptuous pieces of imagery.... Fates and Furies, too, begins as a fist, its secrets clenched in its grasp. Once it is pried open, the secrets release like a magician's doves." --Electric Literature"With Fates and Furies Lauren Groff goes many levels below the surface of a marriage, into a place that is perhaps as hard to reach as it is to describe, but Groff, a bold and marvelous writer, is able to do both. Because she's so vitally talented line for line and passage for passage, and because her ideas about the ways in which two people can live together and live inside each other, or fall away from each other, or betray each other, feel foundationally sound and true, Fates and Furies becomes a book to submit to, and be knocked out by, as I certainly was." --Meg Wolitzer, New York Times-bestselling author of The Interestings "Fates and Furies is a dazzling novel, its people and its prose wondrously alive from page one. At once intimate and sweeping, this is the story of a marriage as parallel myths-- flaring with passion and betrayal, with redemption and retribution, with the sort of heart-breaking, head-slapping secrets that make you want to seek out someone else who's read it. Lauren Groff is a powerful and graceful writer, one of the best of her generation." --Jess Walter, New York Times-bestselling author of Beautiful Ruins About The Author Lauren Groff is the New York Times bestselling author of three novels, The Monsters of Templeton, Arcadia, and Fates and Furies, and two short story collections, Florida and Delicate Edible Birds.

Book Synopsis #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts presents a novel of redemption and suspense, as a woman haunted by the unsolved murder of her childhood friend returns to her small South Carolina hometown. . . . Tory Bodeen grew up in a run-down house where her father ruled with an iron fist and a leather belt--and where her dreams and talents had no room to flourish. Her one escape was her neighbor Hope, who lived in the big house just a short skip away, and whose friendship allowed Tory to be something she wasn't allowed to be at home: a child. Then Hope was brutally murdered, and everything fell apart. Now, as she returns to Progress with plans to settle in and open a stylish home-design shop, Tory is determined to find a measure of peace and free herself from the haunting visions of the past. As she forges a new bond with Cade Lavelle--Hope's older brother and the heir to the family fortune--she isn't sure whether the tragic loss they share will unite them or drive them apart. But she is willing to open her heart, just a little, and try. But living so close to those unhappy memories will be more difficult and frightening than Tory could ever have expected. Because Hope's murderer is nearby as well. . . . "Roberts may have achieved her personal best in this tense Southern Gothic. As atmospheric and unsettling as a Tennessee Williams play. . . .

My Friend Leonard (Reprint) (Paperback) by James Frey
Dimensions (Overall): 8.14 Inches (H) x 5.06 Inches (W) x .93 Inches (D)Weight: .72 PoundsNumber of Pages: 399Genre: Social Science, Biography + Autobiography, Self ImprovementSub-Genre: General, Criminology, Criminals + OutlawsFormat: PaperbackPublisher: Riverhead BooksAuthor: James FreyAge Range: TeenLanguage: English About the Book From the author of the bestselling "A Million Little Pieces" comes the story of his friendship with a highly unorthodox father figure--a high-living, recovering coke addict mobster. Book Synopsis Perhaps the most unconventional and literally breathtaking father-son story you'll ever read, My Friend Leonard pulls you immediately and deeply into a relationship as unusual as it is inspiring. The father figure is Leonard, the high-living, recovering coke addict West Coast Director of a large Italian-American finance firm (read: mobster) who helped to keep James Frey clean in A Million Little Pieces. The son is, of course, James, damaged perhaps beyond repair by years of crack and alcohol addiction-and by more than a few cruel tricks of fate. James embarks on his post-rehab existence in Chicago emotionally devastated, broke, and afraid to get close to other people. But then Leonard comes back into his life, and everything changes. Leonard offers his son lucrative--if illegal and slightly dangerous--employment. He teaches James to enjoy life, sober, for the first time. He instructs him in the art of living boldly, pushes him to pursue his passion for writing, and provides a watchful and supportive veil of protection under which James can get his life together. Both Leonard's and James's careers flourish...but then Leonard vanishes. When the reasons behind his mysterious absence are revealed, the book opens up in unexpected emotional ways. My Friend Leonard showcases a brilliant and energetic young writer rising to important new challenges--displaying surprising warmth, humor, and maturity--without losing his intensity. This book proves that one of the most provocative literary voices of his generation is also one of the most emphatically human. Review Quotes As smart as it is heartfelt, this tribute to friendship is a far sunnier book than Frey's debut.... Frey's cool, shrewd eye for detail ties it all together, whether he's describing the inside of a jail, a Super Bowl party, or the plaintive rootlessness of life in Los Angeles. --Malcolm Jones, Newsweekhe engrossing story of a bizarre friendship between the author and a dangerous mobster. --PeopleFrey's appeal lies in his ability to tell his down and dirty, hair-raising story in sparse, hypnotic prose--in this sense he's already a master stylist, of kind. No subject, no height or depth of human experience is too extreme for him to come around on with deadeye grace and force of his beautiful, sad, potent, irresistible prose. --ElleHas a ferocity and a narrative drive that won't surprise Frey's fans, but is full of unexpected heart that might. --Details"Suffused with anger and regret, written by a man who has straddled the line between life and death and has taken his time figuring out which side he wants to jump to. He spares no gory details." --Poets & Writers Magazine (cover story)Brave and bold... This is not a document but a rendering, just as Van Gogh's self-portrait distorts his face to capture the riot of emotions behind the eyes... Frey describes how he put feelings back into his life, and the effect is vivid, splashy, mesmerizing. Indeed, he has put the Technicolor back into the memoir. --Atlanta Journal-Constitution"Examines [Frey's] relationship with the title figure, a Las Vegas mobster who helps him through rehab, jail and the terrifying terrain of sobriety...a tender story of male friendship." --Chicago Tribune"My Friend Leonard is just as compelling as the first book, with the same electrifying narrative energy, stylistic daring and atmosphere of emotional risk...Frey is exceptionally good at conveying the emotional truths behind the events he relates. His portrait of his friendship with Leonard is deeply resonant and offers a fuller human portrait of a gangster than you're likely to find anywhere else." --Bookpage"[A] great story by a talented writer." --Wisconsin State Journal"[A] must-read." --Sacramento BeeWhat makes the book as difficult and challenging as its predecessor is Frey's ability to meet his new losses head-on. What makes it more inspiring is his determination to see things through, without the drugs as a crutch, to their unfortunate, heartbreaking end...Frey succeeds in making Leonard cut fast and close to the core. --Time Out New York Frey achieves another stylistic coup... Frey's style throughout is loose, untraditional, but perfectly crafted... This book packs a full emotional wallop... Frey's extraordinary relationship with Leonard is alive, a flesh-and-blood bond. --Publishers Weekly (starred review)"A fine, grim tale full of smarting immediacy... A small fortune could be made by bottling this story and selling it as an antidote to self-pity. Frey will have to settle for the small fortune it will make in big sales." --Kirkus (starred review)"A raw, often visceral, reading experience. With Frey's emotions so close to the surface, it's impossible not to care about Frey's struggles to reintegrate into society and prosper. Another powerful read from a talented, dynamic author." --Booklist (starred, boxed review) About The Author James Frey is the author of the memoir A Million Little Pieces.Author photo by Annelore Van Herjiwen
