Description : Inspired by the wartime experiences of her father-in-law, Bobbie Ann Mason has crafted the haunting and profoundly moving story of an American World War II pilot shot down in Occupied Europe, and his wrenching odyssey of discovery, decades later, as he uncovers the truth about those who helped him escape in 1944. At twenty-three, Marshall Stone was a confident, cocksure U.S. flyboy stationed in England, with several bombing raids in a B-17 under his belt. But when enemy fighters forced his plane to crash-land in a Belgian field during a mission to Germany, Marshall had to rely solely on the kindness of ordinary Belgian and French citizens to help him hide from and evade the Nazis. Decades later, restless and at the end of his career as an airline pilot, Marshall returns to the crash site and finds himself drawn back in time, unable to stop thinking about the people who risked their lives to save Allied pilots like him. Most of all, he is obsessed by the girl in the blue beret, a courageous young woman who protected and guided him in occupied Paris. Framed in spellbinding, luminous prose, Marshall’s search for her gradually unfolds, becoming a voyage of discovery that reveals truths about himself and the people he knew during the war. Deeply beautiful and impossible to put down, The Girl in the Blue Beret is an unforgettable story—intimate, affecting, exquisite—of memories, second chances, and one intrepid girl who risked it all for a stranger.

Description : A treasury of both fiction and nonfiction by the award-winning author, including new material: “What a treat . . . She's one of our very best writers.” —Ann Beattie, author of A Wonderful Stroke of Luck The author of such classics as Shiloh and the memoir Clear Springs, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, Kentucky-born Bobbie Ann Mason has been hailed as “a full-fledged master of the short story” by Anne Tyler and “an American original” by Jayne Anne Phillips. This reader collects outstanding examples of Mason’s award-winning work from throughout her career and provides a unique look at the development of one of the country’s finest writers. Patchwork contains short stories first published in the New Yorker and other leading periodicals; chapters from Mason’s acclaimed novels, including In Country, An Atomic Romance, and The Girl in the Blue Beret; and riveting excerpts from Mason’s eclectic nonfiction. Some examples of Mason’s recent explorations in flash fiction appear here in print for the first time. Mason’s writing glows with a nuanced understanding of the struggles and pathos of American life in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. As George Saunders says in his introduction, “Bobbie Ann Mason is a strange and beautiful writer. . . . Her stories exist to gently touch on, and praise, even mourn, what it feels like to be alive in this moment.” Patchwork conveys Mason’s extraordinary talent and range.

Description : Love is everybody's favourite business...but for none more urgently than for the young. This is a book for the youngat- heart, taking us in a series of enchanting tales through the torments and joys of a youth struggling to learn about love. Set in the dark days of the mid-twentieth century, when young people's lives were severely cramped by the mores of the era, the stories ooze a sense of the period. When, in 1935, ten-year-old Yorkshire schoolboy Derek Lawson meets a girl who sings love songs to him in a field, he makes a surprising discovery about his own nature. In his teenage years, he experiments further with erotic love, and starts to discover its complexities. War service in the navy brings him a torrent of new experiences, including surviving in a world without women. Adapting, turning into a world traveller and a hardened sea-goer, he acquires a superficial toughness, yet his yearnings remain unsatisfied. His search for sexual experience becomes a quest to find a permanent partner in 'the dance of life'. After the war, when he has found 'his woman', he succumbs to parental pressure and breaks off the relationship. Now, he learns another important lesson: that love is not child's play, it's the central business of life. Finally, he wakes up to the secret of what sexual love is really all about.

Description : The beloved author of the Rachel Murdock Mysteries introduces an amateur sleuth who knows murder is never academic—especially when it comes to love. Professor Pennyfeather is on his way to the desert town of Superstition to help a former student, now an army man. Tick Burrell is a charming troublemaker who’s got himself in a bit of a bind. He’s due to inherit a fortune when he marries, but until then, his aunt, Martha Andler, holds the purse strings in her iron grip. And now that Tick’s engaged for the third time, he wants Pennyfeather to help him convince Martha his intentions—and his bride-to-be—are serious. But Superstition has become a hot destination for Tick’s exes, both of whom want to win him back. One is a flighty gold digger; the other a striking and sharp-witted beauty. And his no-nonsense fiancée is in the Women’s Army Corps. When Tick’s aunt is found axe-murdered in her hotel room, Pennyfeather must decide who among them stands to benefit the most . . . Amidst the sage and cactus of the small army town, danger lurks, and Pennyfeather, who has Tick’s best interests at heart, may be the next victim of a brutal and greedy killer. “The story is just as engaging as The Cat Saw Murder and Pennyfeather, while less active and daring than Miss Murdock, proves himself to be more than capable as a detective in this gruesome premiere. . . . The story is rife with traditional detective novel motifs and abounds with fair play and puzzling clues.” —Pretty Sinister Books Bring the Bride a Shroud was originally published under the pseudonym D. B. Olsen.

Description : A gorgeous, poetic literary debut from award-winning author Frances Greenslade, Shelter is a brilliant coming-of-age story of two strong, brave sisters searching for their mother. For sisters Maggie and Jenny growing up in the Pacific mountains in the early 1970s, life felt nearly perfect. Seasons in their tiny rustic home were peppered with wilderness hikes, building shelters from pine boughs and telling stories by the fire with their doting father and beautiful, adventurous mother. But at night, Maggie—a born worrier—would count the freckles on her father’s weathered arms, listening for the peal of her mother’s laughter in the kitchen, and never stop praying to keep them all safe from harm. Then her worst fears come true: Not long after Maggie’s tenth birthday, their father is killed in a logging accident, and a few months later, their mother abruptly drops the girls at a neighbor’s house, promising to return. She never does. With deep compassion and sparkling prose, Frances Greenslade’s mesmerizing debut takes us inside the extraordinary strength of these two girls as they are propelled from the quiet, natural freedom in which they were raised to a world they can’t begin to fathom. Even as the sisters struggle to understand how their mother could abandon them, they keep alive the hope that she is fighting her way back to the daughters who adore her and who need her so desperately. Heartwarming and lushly imagined, Shelter celebrates the love between two sisters and the complicated bonds of family. It is an exquisitely written ode to sisters, mothers, daughters, and to a woman’s responsibility to herself and those she loves.

Description : 'A compelling, beautifully written story of resilience, friendship and survival.' Heather Morris, author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz The thrilling story of how nine young women, captured by the Nazis for being part of the Resistance, launched a breathtakingly bold escape and found their way home. As the Second World War raged across Europe, and the Nazi regime tightened its reign of horror and oppression, nine women, some still in their teens, joined the French and Dutch Resistance. Caught out in heroic acts against the brutal occupiers, they were each tortured and sent east into Greater Germany to a concentration camp, where they formed a powerful friendship. In 1945, as the war turned against Hitler, they were forced on a Death March, facing starvation and almost certain death. Determined to survive, they made a bid for freedom, and so began one of the most breathtaking tales of escape and resilience of the Second World War. The author is the great-niece of one of the nine, and she interweaves their gripping flight across war-torn Europe with her own detective work, uncovering the heart-stopping escape and survival of these heroes who fought fearlessly against Nazi Germany and lived to tell the tale. --------- 'A truly extraordinary tale, beautifully written, one that chills and excites, [A] work of rare passion, power and principle' Philippe Sands, author of East-West Street and The Ratline 'Utterly gripping' Anna Sebba author of Les Parisiennes 'The Nine is poignant, powerful, and shattering, distilling the horror of the Holocaust through the lens of nine unforgettable women...'

Description : A fiftyish graphic designer forced into retirement discovers, via a parade of unlikely events, that it may still be a lovely day in the neighborhood, by "the master of the low-key epiphany." (The New Yorker). Wallace Webster lives alone in Kemah, Texas at Forgetful Bay, a condo development where residents are passing away at an alarming rate. As he monitors events in the neighborhood, Wallace keeps in touch with his ex-wife, his grown daughter, a former coworker for whom he has much averted eyes, and a somewhat exotic resident with whom he commences an off-beat affair. He sifts through the curious accidents that plague his neighbors, all the while reflecting on his past and shortening future. Required to reflect upon his own mortality, he wonders if "settling for" something less than he aspired to is a kind of cowardice, or just good sense. Beneath the arresting repartee and the ever-present and often satisfying banality of our modern lives -- from Google searches to real life mysteries on TV -- lies Frederick Barthelme's affection for and curiosity about our human condition. There Must be Some Mistake is warm and wry, beautifully written, and completely irresistible.

Description : When she first saw Schindler's List--to whose premiere in Germany she was invited--Roma Ligocka suddenly realized she was witnessing a part of her own life. She felt instinctively that the little girl in the red coat--the only spot of color in the film--was her. When she had lived in the Krakow ghetto during the Second World War she had worn a strawberry-red coat given to her by her grandmother. Unlike the girl in Spielbeg's film, however, Roma survived the war. Startled by this eerie conjunction of art and reality, Ligocka determined to write the story of her own life, to find out what had become of the little girl, and to measure who she now was. From a harrowing childhood under the Nazis, described with a simplicity and innocence that lends it even greater power, through the trials of living in Communist Poland, to a career in the theater and film (an artistic struggle paralleling that of her cousin, Roman Polanski), Ligocka traces her struggle for self-defiition and happiness. The Girl in the Red Coat is a courageous and moving story of survival and triumph.

After migrating from the depleted coal fields in search of a better life, father, mother and three children have struggled for two years to make ends meet in a run-down area known derisively as Hillbilly Land, finding solace only in the songs of their Southern mountain heritage. Now, however, as James Allens illness worsens, his wife, Mavis June, must take more and more on herself if the family is to survive. These are the desperate circumstances in which 14-year-old Annie Mae McCree is forced to grow up and to complete her journey from girlhood to womanhood. When her mother passes on to her a folk belief in a guardian angel, Annie dares to hope that she and her family will be under his protection.

Along the way, she learns much about who she is, experiences the power of first love, and finds out a thing or two about angels -- most importantly, that they often arent who or what you expect them to be, and most of the time, they rarely look like angels at all.

Description : Improvement makes strait roads, but the crooked roads without Improvement are the roads of Genius. --William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell One of the world's most brilliant, visionary artists, William Blake was a painter, engraver, illustrator, and poet as well as a mystic of extraordinary proportion. But he was also a political radical, a Dissenter, and a friend and supporter of Thomas Paine, the English common man, and the early stages of the French Revolution. This remarkable personality is reimagined in Tyger on the Crooked Road, a bold historical novel that delves into both the man and the legend. In the late-eighteenth century, Blake struggles to make ends meet. He is harassed by repressive authorities, denied professional membership in the Royal Academy of Art, and considered by major artistic and literary figures of the day to be little but a willful eccentric. Not a few of them think him mad. But beyond his art and politics, Blake is a loyal friend and a passionate and devoted husband. His life comprises an amalgam of conflict and compassion, adventure and failure, violence and political intrigue, frustration and inspiration. This Blake is a man of profound appetite and exquisite skill--one who offers an enduring voice of strength, justice, promise, and capacity. Tyger on the Crooked Road brings Blake vividly to life, a genius underestimated in his own time but known and beloved today.
