Summary

Get an inside look at Algonquin’s outstanding forthcoming fiction with the Spring 2015 Algonquin Reader. Discover the inspiration behind each book through an original essay by the author. Then enjoy a preview of each novel.The Miracle Girl by Andrew Roe On Sale April 21, 2015 “To believe or not to believe--that is the question facing all who are touched by the comatose ‘miracle girl’ at the swirling center of Roe’s dazzling debut. But more than an exploration of the mysteries of faith, it’s also the unforgettable story of one family’s struggle against tragedy. The result is an uplifting miracle of a book.” —Will Allison, author of Long Drive HomeThe Daylight Marriage by Heidi Pitlor On Sale May 5, 2015 “Hypnotically readable--I absolutely couldn’t put it down. The structure is brilliant, and I turned the pages with increasing dread. This book is terrific.” —Stephen KingOrhan’s Inheritance by Aline Ohanesian On Sale April 7, 2015 “Aline Ohanesian draws from her family’s own dark history to create a tender, powerful story of love and reclamation. A breathtaking and expansive work of historical fiction and proof that the past can sometimes rewrite the future.” —Christina Baker Kline, author of Orphan TrainThe Wisdom of Perversity by Rafael Yglesias On Sale March 24, 2015 “The sly courage, the deft intelligence, and the fierceness of vision that we, his fans, have come to expect from a Raphael Yglesias novel all blaze brightly forth—and cast very dark shadows—in The Wisdom of Perversity.” —Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize–winning novelistDinner with Buddha by Roland Merullo On Sale June 2, 2015 Algonquin’s long-awaited follow-up to the bestselling Breakfast with Buddha finds Otto Ringling and Mongolian monk Volya Rinpoche on another unexpected road trip of discovery.Cover art by Melinda Beck

    Here is the short story from the Rolling Stone (1912). Murray, a prisoner condemned to death, prepares to his death penalty. he goes through the prison corridor, talks with other prisoners and the guard. He comes in the execution room and sees prison officers, newspaper reporters and lookers-on. And here the story breaks up: the "Dream" is O. Henry's last story. He said, “I want to show the public that I can write something new – new for me, I mean – a story without slang, a straightforward dramatic plot starting treated in a way that will come nearer my idea of real story-writing”. This story is untypical for O. Henry style. It is full of dramatic effects and shocking descriptions of the death row prisoners' life. Unfortunately O. Henry didn't finish this work – he died of cirrhosis in 1910.

    This holiday, spend quality time with family and loved ones—living and dead . . . 
    There's no place like home for the horrordays—unless you'd prefer a romantic midnight walk through a ghost-infested graveyard . . . or a haunted house candlelight dinner with the sexy vampire of your dreams. The (black) magical season is here—and whether it's a solstice séance gone demonically wrong with the incomparable Kim Harrison, a grossly misshapen Christmas with the remarkable Lynsay Sands, a blood-chilling-and-spilling New Year's with the wonderful Marjorie M. Liu, or a super-powered Thanksgiving with the phenomenal Vicki Pettersson, one thing is for certain: in the able hands of these exceptional dark side explorers, the holidays are going to be deliciously hellish!
