I laughed, I cried, I sighed Elba has a block that she must drag around with her all the time. It's no fun, but she has to do it. Norris is followed everywhere by butterflies. He doesn't quite understand Elba's block, but he wants to help. This story is one of the most helpful depictions of dealing with loss and supporting a friend that I've seen. Grief doesn't go away, as this book shows, but it changes with time and patient friends can help ease the journey. Elba has lost All of Us With Wings is a remarkable, refreshing, dangerous book filled with beautiful language.
Great days ver 1
Michelle Ruiz Keil brings the supernatural, the world of art and music, themes of abuse and agency, and characters so real, my heart broke for more than one of them. I want more from this author. At a New England college, an elderly classics professor lets slip a comment that is taken for, but not meant as, a racial slur. What happens next changes his life and reveals the carefully hidden past he's taken great pains to conceal.
Exploring themes of racism, family, deceit, and shame, this is an amazing book, and it made me fall in love with Roth! Recommended by Dianah H.
A brief but potent look at how the memories and confusions of childhood are intensified by life under dictatorship, when unreality is imposed by the state. Karen Abbott provides a compelling account of the career of George Remus, a lawyer-turned-bootlegger, who has largely been forgotten despite the outrageous turns of his nearly unbelievable life. The twists in this story — including betrayal, insanity and murder — would be positively melodramatic, except that they are all true. Tom Waits fans, rejoice: here is a visual feast, three decades in the making.
Besides offering up the fruits of his work with Waits from several photo shoots and album covers, Mahurin digs deep into his film archives to create new images of whim and fancy of one of the greatest storytellers of our time, all compiled into this lovely and unique collection. Those familiar with this icon, as well as newcomers, will not be disappointed.
Recommended by Aubrey W. Nimue's ferocity combined with the freshness of the plot make this action-driven story one epic novel. The award-winning duo of Gerald the Elephant and Piggie the — well, Piggie — is back! Also, how did we get in this blurb? A snapshot of the multitudes of experience in s London. This is also Smith's debut novel. Recommended by Alex Y. This perfectly rendered classic tells the tale of a miserly tailor who loses all his money, but gains something much more precious. A great story with moral dilemmas, ironic twists, and insight into human nature at its best and its very worst.
Memoirs of a Polar Bear is such a strange, enchanting book.
- Caesar Series.
- SS LIGURIA NAPOLI-NEW ORLEANS-5-14-1909-240-SOULS!
- Best indie comics?
- The Great Train Robbery: The Untold Story from the Closed Investigation Files.
- Survival Guide for Coaching Youth Softball (Survival Guide for Coaching Youth Sports).
Told from the point of view of three different generations of polar bears, it is both a work of magic and a poignant look at parenting and abandonment, and all the ways those terms can be complicated. Strange Grace has some of my favorite ingredients for a book: witches, sacrifices, queer love, body horror, and its own dark, peculiar magic, unique unto itself.
