Description : 'A magnificent beast of a novel' Roxane Gay 'It blew me away' Emma Donoghue 'Large in scope and heart' Patrick deWitt 'Unforgettable' Nathan Hill 'A blast' Karen Russell On the day of their estranged father's wedding, half-sisters Cheyenne and Livy set off to claim their inheritance. It's been years since the two have seen each other - Cheyenne is newly back in Seattle after a failed marriage, Livy works refinishing boats - but the promise of a shot at financial security brings the two together to claim what's theirs. Except: instead of money, their father gives them information - a name - that reveals a stunning family secret. In the face of their new reality, the sisters each set out on journeys that will test their faith in each other, as well as their definitions of freedom. Moving from Seattle's underground to the docks of the Far North, from the hideaways of the southern swamps to the storied reaches of the Great Offshore Grounds, this is an epic tale told with boundless verve, linguistic vitality and undeniable tenderness - a book that fearlessly reimagines what the 'great American novel' can do. A deeply moving picaresque... Veselka is a remarkable writer, able to break through the surfaces of her narrative to reveal the animal chaos underneath' Los Angeles Times 'This is a novel that feels like hitchhiking: the route is unpredictable but fated and exciting, with an air of treachery... Thrilling' Vulture 'Vivid, realistic and devastating . . . Veselka is a talented writer, with sensual imagery and an unflinching ability to stick with troubled and troublesome characters' Seattle Times

Description : LONGLISTED FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD WINNER OF THE OREGON BOOK AWARDS' KEN KESEY AWARD FOR FICTION A wildly original, cross-country novel that subverts a long tradition of family narratives and casts new light on the mythologies—national, individual, and collective—that drive and define us. On the day of their estranged father’s wedding, half sisters Cheyenne and Livy set off to claim their inheritance. It’s been years since the two have seen each other. Cheyenne is newly back in Seattle, crashing with Livy after a failed marriage and a series of personal and professional dead ends. Livy works refinishing boats, her resentment against her freeloading sister growing as she tamps down dreams of fishing off the coast of Alaska. But the promise of a shot at financial security brings the two together to claim what’s theirs. Except, instead of money, what their father gives them is information—a name—which forces them to come to grips with a long-held family secret. In the face of their new reality, the sisters and their adopted brother each set out on journeys that will test their faith in one another, as well as their definitions of freedom. Moving from Seattle’s underground to the docks of the Far North, from the hideaways of the southern swamps to the storied reaches of the Great Offshore Grounds, Vanessa Veselka spins a tale with boundless verve, linguistic vitality, and undeniable tenderness.

Description : From the author of the National Book Award longlisted epic The Great Offshore Grounds, here is the debut novel that launched her career—a story of activism, police violence, and white guilt in a not so distant dystopian America. “An ambitious encapsulation of our modern times, Zazen tackles counterculture hipsters, geology, Buddhism, consumerism, terrorism, veganism, family drama, and, above all, love." —Judges' Citation, PEN/Robert W. Bingham Prize The world is on fire, and Della doesn’t know what, if anything, she should do about it. The country is poised on the brink of war. Curfews and other restrictions give the police an excuse for violence. Customers at the vaguely vegan cafe where Della is working after dropping out of grad school debate which foreign countries are the best to flee to: Costa Rica? Bali? Della’s parents—former revolutionaries—are more excited at the idea of her brother and his Black wife giving them biracial grandbabies than in engaging in any new actions; her nominally activist coworkers are mostly devoted to planning a massive sex party. Della floats between them, lost and numb. Then a bomb goes off: some shallow place of capitalistic worship demolished. Inspired, for reasons not entirely clear to herself, Della calls in a second—fake—bomb threat. But a bomb goes off there, too, and soon Della finds herself pulled in by a group of people who, for once, are promising to actually do something. No matter the consequences. Prescient when it was first published, Vanessa Veselka’s debut novel is even more revolutionary now. A VINTAGE ORIGINAL.

Description : In April 1988 a major in-depth study of the Scotia-Fundy lobster fishery was announced by the federal government to review all the major issues facing the industry and address the long-term social and economic viability of the fishery and of the communities which depend on it. The study would include the biological, licensing, management, marketing, and enforcements aspects. This study contains a comprehensive overview of the fishery, emphasizing recent developments. It examines the community base in which the fishery takes place and analyzes the resource according to current scientific understanding. It examines the harvesting, processing and marketing components and describes the DFO management regime and its related costs. On the basis of an extensive consultative process, with generally good participation by the industry, it presents the current views and concerns of fishermen on issues they consider of primary importance.
