They pinwheel. In seventy poems bearing the same title, Terrance Hayes explores the meanings of American, of assassin, and of love in the sonnet form. Inventive, compassionate, hilarious, melancholy, and bewildered—the wonders of this new collection are irreducible and stunning. This funny, irreverent story collection by Helene Tursten, author of the Irene Huss investigations, features two-never-before translated stories that will keep you laughing all the way to the retirement home. A creative call to arms, the book will champion freedom of ideas, making art in the face of adversity and choosing to be bold.
It will be inspirational to young and old, and will encourage glorious, creative rebellion. The heiress of a small fortune, she is resented by her mother and, to a lesser degree, her brother. A shut-in, Helen maintains her residence in an upscale hotel downtown. Increasingly threatened, she turns to a reluctant Mr. Blackshear to get to the bottom of these strange calls. Blackshear is doubtful of their seriousness but he quickly realizes that he is in the midst of something far more sinister than he thought possible.
As he unravels the mystery of the calls the identity behind them slowly emerges, predatory and treacherous. At first, sharing an isolated tent, the attraction is casual, inevitable, but something deeper catches them that summer. But over the course of many years and frequent separations this relationship becomes the most important thing in their lives, and they do anything they can to preserve it.
He was born on the day the last strip was published. His grandpa put a stuffed tiger named Hobbes in his crib.
And he even had a best friend named Susie. Susie grew up beautiful and stopped talking to him. Now he is seventeen years old and has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. Calvin and Susie is she real? When it all becomes too much and her life plan veers off course, she finds herself on a new path of discoveries about everything she thought she knew. Smart, moving, and always funny, this unique coming-of-age story is certain to evoke a winning reaction.
In the next installment of her graphic travelogue series, Displacement , Knisley volunteers to watch over her ailing grandparents on a cruise. In a book that is part graphic memoir, part travelogue, and part family history, Knisley not only tries to connect with her grandparents, but to reconcile their younger and older selves. But when Fee learns how the director treats his section leaders, he is so ashamed he says nothing of the abuse, not even when Peter, his best friend, is in line to be next. When the director is arrested, Fee tries to forgive himself for his silence.
But when Peter takes his own life, Fee blames only himself. In the years that follow he slowly builds a new life, teaching near his hometown. There he meets a young student who is the picture of Peter and is forced to confront the past he believed was gone. As London is submerged below floodwaters, a woman gives birth to her first child, Z. Days later, she and her baby are forced to leave their home in search of safety. They head north through a newly dangerous country seeking refuge from place to place.
The story traces fear and wonder as the baby grows, thriving and content against all the odds. And each of them is seeking a way back to their own fantasy world. This witty collection of essays recounts a lifelong love affair with books and language. Through her gorgeous reimagining of fairytale classics and spellbinding original tales, she dismantles the old-fashioned tropes that have been ingrained in our minds.
In this book, gone are the docile women and male saviors. Instead, lines blur between heroes and villains. You will meet fearless princesses, a new kind of wolf lurking in the concrete jungle, and an independent Gretel who can bring down monsters on her own. In Agriculture the funding of vital programs like food stamps and school lunches is being slashed. The Commerce Department may not have enough staff to conduct the Census properly. If there are dangerous fools in this book, there are also heroes, unsung, of course.
Michael Lewis finds them, and he asks them what keeps them up at night. Her own battle against grief is intensified by the mute suffering of the dog, a huge Great Dane traumatized by the inexplicable disappearance of its master, and by the threat of eviction: dogs are prohibited in her apartment building. While others worry that grief has made her a victim of magical thinking, the woman refuses to be separated from the dog except for brief periods of time. But while troubles abound, rich and surprising rewards lie in store for both of them.
Her father, a prominent history professor, is losing his memory and is only erratically lucid. A keen observer of human behavior, our unnamed narrator immediately diagnoses beautiful, rich Susan as an unhappy woman eager to give her lovely life a drama injection. The three are soon locked in a chilling battle to discover where the evil truly lurks and what, if anything, can be done to escape it. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr.
At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena.

But Hill House is gathering its powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own. Having survived a profoundly dysfunctional upbringing only to find herself hospitalized and facing a dual diagnosis of post traumatic stress disorder and bipolar II disorder; Terese Marie Mailhot is given a notebook and begins to write her way out of trauma. Her unique and at times unsettling voice graphically illustrates her mental state. As she writes, she discovers her own true voice, seizes control of her story, and, in so doing, reestablishes her connection to her family, to her people, and to her place in the world.
While her work has earned her comparisons to Karen Russell and Kelly Link, she has a voice that is all her own. No one knows this better than author, naturalist, and adventurer Sy Montgomery. It also explores vast themes: the otherness and sameness of people and animals; the various ways we learn to love and become empathetic; how we find our passion; how we create our families; coping with loss and despair; gratitude; forgiveness; and most of all, how to be a good creature in the world.
Vivek Shraya has reason to be afraid. In order to survive childhood, she had to learn to convincingly perform masculinity. As an adult, she makes daily compromises to steel herself against everything from verbal attacks to heartbreak. Now, with raw honesty, Shraya delivers an important record of the cumulative damage caused by misogyny, homophobia, and transphobia, releasing trauma from a body that has always refused to assimilate.
Will is a misfit scholarship boy who transfers to Edwards from Bible college, waiting tables to get by. What he knows for sure is that he loves Phoebe. Grieving and guilt-ridden, Phoebe is drawn into a secretive cult founded by a charismatic former student with an enigmatic past. His gift for capturing emotion and intellect resonates here: the weight of love and its absence, the pride and disappointment of family, the anxiety and hopefulness of being alive in the twenty-first century.
She had everything an educated, ambitious American woman was supposed to want—a husband, a house, a successful career.

But instead of feeling happy and fulfilled, she was consumed with panic, grief, and confusion. She went through a divorce, a crushing depression, another failed love, and the eradication of everything she ever thought she was supposed to be.

I love that books can transport us, even from the comfort of home. My posts sometimes include Amazon affiliate links, but only when links are available for books I truly want to write about. I love books set in India! I want to read Kingfishers Catch Fire. She wrote In Custody and Fire on the Mountain , both remarkable novels, as well as wonderful short stories.

There is Deep River by Shusako Endo. Hi Monika! Thanks so much for all the incredible recommendations. Looks like I have a lot of reading to do! Love stories like this! Nectar in a Sieve by Kamala Markandaya deserves a revival.
Sounds like an especially moving novel. Thanks for the suggestion Angela! Do you recommend starting with Kocharethi or something else?

I am, though, trying to track down the title of one the I read when I was going to visit Kochi. I remember one of the character used to go to the Jewish temple there and look in the Delphi tiles to see where her sailor husband was in the world! Of course, I went to visit the temple but have lost track of the book! Would love if anyone could offer some suggestions.
With many thanks! Hi Louisa, I love a good book mystery like this! Fingers crossed one rings a bell! Please let us know if you find it! Thank you for this website!
