Buy this for the Step Dad in your life and let him know that he's priced to move, baby! This is the book all the teenagers are reading right before they do something wild and controversial. There are illustrations, comics, propositions for potentially better books than itself, poems, open letters to famous rich white men, sacred secret truths to fix your life, all that jazz. This book slept with someone you follow on Twitter. This book doesn't care what happened to your hair. It didn't even notice. It actually thinks you look quite fetching. This book cusses and spits and isn't going to quit smoking indoors with the windows closed anytime soon. If this book was in the movie Air Bud, it would be the titular 'Bud'. There are currently no rules barring this book from playing basketball. John Leguizamo hasn't read this book, so you'd have that on him if you did. You'd be better than John Leguizamo. You've always wanted that. This book wants you so bad, and you want something weird and maybe off-putting for a coffee table. You aren't getting any younger but this book is. This book is a book that is aging backwards. This book is like that movie. You could give this book to someone who hates books and they'd still probably kiss you. This book never talks back, listens very well, rarely whines. This book is better than your spouse and your children. You could see yourself leaving your family for this book. You don't have to, though. But I mean... you could. Whatever you want, champ.

Mark Edwards writes with wit, poignancy and economy. In poems and stories of remarkable grace he delineates the corners of a world - his cast of genial no-hopers and poetic dreamers speak to us in the language of Aberdeen - lilting, ironic, occasionally obscene, often hilarious and always genuine. There is depth of feeling in their reticence and a hard-edged wisdom in their careful tenderness. In rendering the specific with such attention, Edwards achieves a universal truth, and shows us ourselves, often at our most vulnerable.

At 5:41 P.M. on May 22, 2011, an EF5 tornado hit Joplin, Missouri. It was a huge twister that destroyed miles of properties down its path, leaving houses, businesses, crops, and everything it hit devastated, in rubble. Then as if it had been forever, the forty-five-second catastrophe left 161 deaths, injuries and disbelief, and stories of survival . . . stories of faith. Scott Hettinger's interviews with many survivors provides a real picture of what that afternoon was like, in multiple points of view. Some were in their homes doing chores, some attending graduation, some shopping, while others stayed with their families for barbecue and such. But there were dark clouds over Joplin, strong winds, purple lightning . . . and everything was okay. Then the tornado sirens went off. 5/22: Stories of Survival, Stories of Faith provides powerful examples of how powerful God's hands are in times of need.

Dr. Konstantin Frank forever changed the palate of American wine. Forced from his home in Soviet Ukraine during World War II, he was astounded by the terroir when he arrived in the Finger Lakes region. Against popular notions, he believed that the vinifera grapes that produced some of Europe's and California's finest wines would prosper in New York. He proved his detractors wrong, and by sharing his knowledge freely with others, Konstantin's innovativeness has allowed the region to produce some of the world's finest Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and other varietals. Four generations of Franks have continued his legacy, and their winery has won record numbers of prestigious awards every year. Oenophile Tom Russ presents the remarkable story of Dr. Konstantin Frank, the father of Finger Lakes wine.

A town. A forest. A hero. You can't go far without a quick brain and some rule-bending in a place like Locksley. After its vast car plants shut down, the prosperous town has become a wasteland of empty homes, toxic land and families on the brink. And it doesn't help that the authorities are in the clutches of profit-obsessed Sheriff of Nottingham, in cahoots with underworld boss Guy Gisborne. When his dad is framed for a robbery, Robin and his brother Little John are hounded out of Locksley and must learn to survive in the Sherwood forest, stretching three hundred kilometres and sheltering the free spirits and outlaws. But Robin is determined to do more than survive. Small, fast and deadly with a bow, he hatches a plan to join forces with Marion Maid, harness his inimitable tech skills and strike a blow against Gisborne and the Sheriff.

The intrepid senior sleuth returns in this “modern-day British cozy with a twist . . . even the most seasoned reader will be surprised” (Booklist). Bea Abbot's domestic agency does not, repeat not, investigate murder . . . that is, until she gets a call from her usually unflappable friend Florrie Green. Florrie’s professional cleaning service has come upon the riotously popular female impersonator, Matthew Kent, dead to the world in his bed. Apparent suicide? Authorities say yes. To Bea? Something doesn’t quite fit. Namely, Matthew’s red-spangled high-heels. The meticulous artiste would never be caught dead in uncomfortable pumps. Bea’s also considering the trio of vultures circling Matthew’s estate: his two ex-wives ready to plunder the overstuffed Victorian house of its valuable antiques; and Matthew’s stepdaughter who has eyes on the house itself. From “clever clueing [to] a shocking solution,” Bea is determined to find out who among Matthew’s scavenger relatives are dressed to kill (Kirkus Reviews).

Peter von Ziegesar had just moved to New York and was awaiting the birth of his first child when a dark shape stepped from the looking glass of his past on to a Greenwich Village street. The Looking Glass Brother is Peter von Ziegesar's remarkable memoir of a life that began in the exquisite enclaves of Long Island's gilded age families and is now lived, in part, as the keeper of his homeless and schizophrenic stepbrother, Little Peter. The Looking Glass Brother is a feast of memories from one of the last, great estates on Long Island's Peacock Point. Summers were filled with the glistening water of the Long Island Sound, pristine beaches, croquet games, butlers in formal wear serving dinners and an endless stream of cocktails. When, after a string of affairs Peter's father left his mother and remarried, the idyll was broken and several stepchildren, including Little Peter, entered von Ziegesar's life from the looking glass of his father's new family. Little Peter was an angelic and brilliant young boy who spiraled down during adolescence to become one more homeless man living on the street. In this big-hearted memoir, Peter von Ziegesar mixes memories of life on Peacock Point with the turbulent joys of fatherhood and the responsibility he feels for his brother, a man with the same name as his, but a man who lives a desperate and very different life.

'Tis the season to be jolly - and for Meg Langslow to round up stray animals of all sorts as well as a killer. Duck the Halls! The brilliantly funny Donna Andrews delivers boughs of holly and barrels of laughs with Meg's latest adventure in her award-winning, New York Times bestselling series. A few nights before Christmas, Meg is awakened when volunteer fireman Michael is summoned to the New Life Baptist Church, where someone has rigged a cage full of skunks in the choir loft. The lengthy process of de-skunking the church requires its annual pre-Christmas concert to relocate to Trinity Episcopal, where Mother insists the show must go on, despite the budget-related protests of Mr. Vess, an elderly vestryman. Meanwhile, when Meg helps her grandfather take the skunks to the zoo, they discover that his boa has been stolen - only to turn up later during the concert, slithering out from the ribbon-bedecked evergreens. The next morning is Sunday, and the congregation of St. Byblig's, the local Catholic church, arrive to find it completely filled with several hundred ducks. It's clear that some serious holiday pranksters are on the loose, and Meg is determined to find them. But before she can, a fire breaks out at Trinity, and Mr. Vess is discovered dead. Who would have murdered such a harmless - if slightly cranky - old man? Who has the time during the busy holiday season to herd all of these animals into the town's churches? And will Meg ever be able to finish all of her shopping, wrapping, cooking, caroling, and decorating in time for Christmas Eve? A Yuletide treasure for the ages, Duck the Halls is guaranteed to put the "ho ho hos" into readers' holidays. Now with an excerpt from Donna Andrews' next Meg Langslow holiday mystery How the Finch Stole Christmas!, available in October 2017.
