Someday Someday Maybe Book Excerpt:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From Lauren Graham, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, comes a witty, charming, and hilariously relatable debut novel about a struggling young actress trying to get ahead―and keep it together―in New York City. It’s January 1995, and Franny Banks has just six months left of the three-year deadline she set for herself when she came to New York, dreaming of Broadway and doing “important” work. But all she has to show for her efforts so far is a part in an ad for ugly Christmas sweaters, and a gig waiting tables at a comedy club. Her roommates―her best friend Jane, and Dan, an aspiring sci-fi writer―are supportive, yet Franny knows a two-person fan club doesn’t exactly count as success. Everyone tells her she needs a backup plan, and though she can almost picture moving back home and settling down with her perfectly nice ex-boyfriend, she’s not ready to give up on her goal of having a career like her idols Diane Keaton and Meryl Streep. Not just yet. But while she dreams of filling their shoes, in the meantime, she’d happily settle for a speaking part in almost anything—and finding a hair product combination that works. Everything is riding on the upcoming showcase for her acting class, where she’ll finally have a chance to perform for people who could actually hire her. And she can’t let herself be distracted by James Franklin, a notorious flirt and the most successful actor in her class, even though he’s suddenly started paying attention. Meanwhile, her bank account is rapidly dwindling, her father wants her to come home, and her agent doesn’t return her calls. But for some reason, she keeps believing that she just might get what she came for. Someday, Someday, Maybe is a story about hopes and dreams, being young in a city, and wanting something deeply, madly, desperately. It’s about finding love, finding yourself, and perhaps most difficult of all in New York City, finding an acting job. Praise for Someday, Someday, Maybe “A winning, entertaining read . . . [Lauren Graham] has smartly mined just the right details from her own experience, infusing her work with crackling dialogue and observations about show business that ring funny and true.”—The Washington Post “A charmer of a first novel . . . [Graham] has an easy, unforced style and, when the situation calls for it, a keen sense of the ridiculous.”—The Wall Street Journal “With insight, care, and an abundance of humor . . . Graham demonstrates that her acting chops are not her only talent.”—Library Journal “Thoroughly charming.”—Entertainment Weekly “Sweet, funny, and full of heart . . . a dazzling debut.”—Emily Giffin, New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed and Where We Belong “Warm and funny, charming and smart.”—Diane Keaton, New York Times bestselling author of Then Again “Graham deftly captures what it’s like to be young, ambitious, and hopeful in New York City.”—Candace Bushnell, New York Times bestselling author of Sex and the City and The Carrie Diaries “Fresh and funny and full of zingers, Lauren Graham’s charming writing style instantly drew me in.”—Meg Cabot, bestselling author of the Princess Diaries and Heather Wells Mystery series

Talking as Fast as I Can Book Excerpt:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In this collection of personal essays, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood reveals stories about life, love, and working as a woman in Hollywood—along with behind-the-scenes dispatches from the set of the new Gilmore Girls, where she plays the fast-talking Lorelai Gilmore once again. With a new bonus chapter In Talking as Fast as I Can, Lauren Graham hits pause for a moment and looks back on her life, sharing laugh-out-loud stories about growing up, starting out as an actress, and, years later, sitting in her trailer on the Parenthood set and asking herself, “Did you, um, make it?” She opens up about the challenges of being single in Hollywood (“Strangers were worried about me; that’s how long I was single!”), the time she was asked to audition her butt for a role, and her experience being a judge on Project Runway (“It’s like I had a fashion-induced blackout”). In “What It Was Like, Part One,” Graham sits down for an epic Gilmore Girls marathon and reflects on being cast as the fast-talking Lorelai Gilmore. The essay “What It Was Like, Part Two” reveals how it felt to pick up the role again nine years later, and what doing so has meant to her. Some more things you will learn about Lauren: She once tried to go vegan just to bond with Ellen DeGeneres, she’s aware that meeting guys at awards shows has its pitfalls (“If you’re meeting someone for the first time after three hours of hair, makeup, and styling, you’ve already set the bar too high”), and she’s a card-carrying REI shopper (“My bungee cords now earn points!”). Including photos and excerpts from the diary Graham kept during the filming of the recent Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, this book is like a cozy night in, catching up with your best friend, laughing and swapping stories, and—of course—talking as fast as you can.

Heading to Key West to visit his old friend Ben, P.I. Jackson Douglas anticipates some much-needed R&R. But when Ben is nowhere to be found, legends of a centuries-old pirate treasure surface, and a dead body washes onshore, Jackson dives into an investigation that could change his life forever. Aided by a mysterious and beautiful Southern belle named Sawyer, Jackson works to find not only Ben but also the truth-and possibly a million-dollar treasure. Their search leads them to the bayous and plantations of Louisiana, the beaches and cays of the Bahamas, and to secrets buried beneath the sands of time. Facing danger and deception at every turn, can Jackson and Sawyer uncover the truth before it's too late? Will digging too deep expose them to an enemy with the resources and resolve to bury them?

The decades-spanning saga of a woman’s life in a family of prison wardens—and among the criminals they guard—by a Spur Award–nominated author. Dru is the daughter of a warden, the first in a long line keeping watch over a local prison. This multigenerational epic follows Dru’s relationships and conflicts with men on both sides of the bars through the early twentieth century, when convicts were often treated brutally and lawlessness still lurked just under the surface of society in many parts of America. Rife with adventure, romance, and historical detail, The Wardens is a novel of love, heartbreak, danger, and one woman’s place in a family dynasty. “A superlative storyteller.” —Publishers Weekly

The Savage Night Book Excerpt:

The Savage Night collects thirteen stories by Mohammed Dib, one of the founding fathers of North African literature. Whether set in present-day Algeria, depicting the war for independence, or evoking memories of the colonial era, many of the stories in The Savage Night paint a vivid picture of the diverse facets of the Algerian question. Dib's other settings include Latin America, war-torn Sarajevo, and Paris. A major element unifying his work is the unanswered question of human brutality. In the face of our shameful indifference, Dib shows us that senseless violence is a daily reality for many. The Savage Night is the first book-length English translation of Dib's work.

Stigma from the Past Book Excerpt:

Something from the past was destined to haunt her for a very long time. Mercy, a compassionate nun and an orphan, quits the nunnery in Ghana after receiving a vision for a calling outside the convent. Mercy launches into a new life in her homeland of Nigeria, which is rife with poverty, pain, harassment, loneliness and gender prejudice, as well as abuse, betrayal, murder, revenge, blackmail and decadence. Possessing such qualities as determination, courage, sacrifice, perseverance and faith, Mercy surmounts many obstacles to become a career-oriented counselor. Her work is everything, until she meets and marries Nick, a dashing multi-millionaire widower. This spellbinding novel is complete with lessons on resilience, irony and the audacity of hope.

Whether it's jumping out of an airplane in the Andes or opening a martial arts classroom in tiny Darling Bay, helping women protect themselves from attack, she's fearless in everything. Hank Coffee is more used to putting on a fire helmet than a padded one, but when Samantha needs help with her new business, he's willing to be kicked and hit in the name of helping someone stay safe. Safety's his thing, after all, and he's good at protocol--dotting his i's and crossing all the t's. When it comes to Samantha, though, Hank is losing his heart and not sure how to get it back.

In the Greenhouse Book Excerpt:

In the Greenhouse by Elaine E. Podovinikoff is a fascinating and informative narrative of the life of Ellen, a young Doukhobor, created from diary entries, with added clarity by the author when revisiting them in mid-life. This book surely has historical value in that many have never heard of the Doukhobor community, a Russian sectarian Christian denomination, part of which immigrated to Western Canada in the late nineteenth century. The author chose this format to get past remnants of feelings and unanswered questions from that time and to thank both her ancestors and her descendants for 'being' who they were/are. To quote the author, "...there are many adventures in store for Ellie and her close circle of friends; indelible ink memories of life before and after the Big World enters her conscious awareness and everyday reality, throughout which her belief in humanity's loving future never wanes."

Tucson Man Hunter Book Excerpt:

I took the train east, all the way to El Paso, Texas. I was sure that the train making twenty miles an hour would get me to the mountain pass west of the Texas line ahead of them. The best they could hope for would be twenty or twenty-five miles a day on horseback. If New Orleans really was their destination they would almost certainly have to use this particular route. Of course they might swing north, but that didn’t make a lot of sense either, travelers using the northern route lately had been killed by roaming bands of renegade Indians that the troopers had not been able to stop. And south, well south, south they would have to swing into Mexico where the beginning of a revolution was in the making. So that would not be a smart move either. No, I would pick me a good spot overlooking the pass and be waiting for Ben and Sam Melody when they came through on their way to Louisiana. I wasn’t exactly sure just how I was going to approach these killers. But I had made a deal with Ruth Tyrell, and if I could, I would bring her two murdering nephews in alive rather than dead. If I could. I even went so far as to borrow two sets of shackles from Marshal Rex Bulett when I left Yuma. So I guess you could say I was thinking I could bring them in alive. Killing them would not be hard, killing a man is easy, capturing him alive is an altogether different thing. If I were able to get them afoot I might get the job done. I deplore killing animals to get the men I’m after, that might be the only choice available to me. And along those lines I bought two cheap horses and lead them behind me when I rode out of El Paso. I instinctively knew that stepping out into the road, blocking their path, and ordering them to surrender would not work. They would force me to shoot them, and being on horseback, the advantage would be on their side. Horses don’t like gunfire, some of them get really jumpy, and will go wild on you in a minute. I might not be able to place my shots and one or both could end up dead. But if they were afoot then the upper hand would fall back on my side. Unless I could get really lucky and walk up on them in a night camp, I might have to shoot their horses from under them. It was a dilemma no doubt, but I had given my word, and if a man has nothing else in this ole world he has that. But I also know that a man’s word, spoken, or implied, along with his belief in self worth is the most important treasure he will ever possess.

Frank Book Excerpt:

Frank Sinatra was the best-known entertainer of the twentieth century—infinitely charismatic, lionized and notorious in equal measure. But despite his mammoth fame, Sinatra the man has remained an enigma. Now James Kaplan brings deeper insight than ever before to the complex psyche and turbulent life behind that incomparable voice, from Sinatra’s humble beginning in Hoboken to his fall from grace and Oscar-winning return in From Here to Eternity. Here at last is the biographer who makes the reader feel what it was really like to be Frank Sinatra—as man, as musician, as tortured genius.
