Summary

As Lillian Faderman writes, there are "no constants with regard to lesbianism," except that lesbians prefer women. In this groundbreaking book, she reclaims the history of lesbian life in twentieth-century America, tracing the evolution of lesbian identity and subcultures from early networks to more recent diverse lifestyles. She draws from journals, unpublished manuscripts, songs, media accounts, novels, medical literature, pop culture artifacts, and oral histories by lesbians of all ages and backgrounds, uncovering a narrative of uncommon depth and originality.

    Almost three thousand years after an extinction level event on Earth, mankind seeks to regain its former glory, in a new world where magic and technology collide. 
    After Avalon's tanks and guns lose a massive confrontation against the Knights and magic of Sparo, they finally agree to peace talks. 
    Laney and the other Templars are chosen to lead the peace envoy that travels to the mysterious land of the north, which has so much of the technology from the Great Wizards of the Before. 
    The mission is put in peril when they learn who leads the Avalonian peace envoy. 
    Overtures of peace, amazing discoveries, and duplicitous actions make this the most dangerous mission that Laney, Celeste, and their allies have ever embarked upon. Their actions will mean either the end of hostilities, saving countless thousands of lives on both sides, or the re-ignition of the war between the two lands.

    They were surely fated. 
     
    This was meant to happen. 
     
    No shifter has complete control over their most primal instincts. They are meant to live free — and Cory was meant to breed and carry on his bloodline. He's at the time in which he is supposed to start a family, and it's too easy that Elijah had fallen into his life right now... a young, perfect omega. 
     
    But this is a world where rival packs of shifters hold century-old rivalries, and no one is safe... Even young omegas with no idea about their true ancestry... 
    All that matters is that Cory and Elijah's love is real. The power of their bond is undeniable — Elijah is carrying Cory's child, proving their love in the most powerful form a shifter knows... 
     
    A child born of two male parents, through male pregnancy. 
     
    But is a happily ever after the way their story will end? Or will it all come crashing down before this young omega in love comes to term?

    A man inherits a valuable piece of Manhattan real estate, leading to unexpected consequences, in this “strange and wonderful novel” (Joseph O’Neill, author of Netherland).   James Ramsay is twenty-one years old and he has just inherited a building in New York City. After the death of his estranged mother, he finds that he is now the owner of No. 1 Dutch Street—a five-story brownstone near the World Trade Center.   As James takes up residence there, trying to figure out his next move, he gets to know the only other tenant: an elderly black woman named Nellydean. Under a mounting tide of taxes, James finds himself faced with a stark choice: He can sell the building for a small fortune—which will mean not only turning Nellydean out of the only home she’s known for more than forty years, but also forfeiting his only remaining connection to his mother. Then Nellydean’s niece shows up, looking for a place for herself and her unborn child—and an older man becomes smitten with James, even as James’s health begins to fail.   Prize-winning author Dale Peck’s fiction has been called “terrific” by Jonathan Safran Foer, and Michael Cunningham described his voice as “like an angel chewing on broken glass.” In The Garden of Lost and Found, he maps a tangled network of sexual, familial, and financial complications, over which hangs the specter of 9/11, and “tells the quintessential New York story with his delicious style and piercing ability to move” (Martha McPhee, author of Gorgeous Lies).
