Summary

Coming of age in Alaska, LOGAN FINCH came to understand the dichotomy of The Last Frontier. Geographic beauty was starkly juxtaposed against harsh, pitch-black winters. Icy streets were strewn with fatal auto accidents and snowplow remains. There were airplane crashes, deadly earthquakes, active volcanoes, and ferocious seas that sank the most experienced fishermen. And there were murders. 
	Between 1978 and 1983, over 40 young girls vanished from the streets of Anchorage during the wild Alyeska Pipeline construction years. Their gruesome deaths at the hands of a serial killer and the consequences of the false alibi given by a cabinet maker and his wife, drive the plot. That alibi enabled the killer to abduct at least ten more girls and fly them into the Alaskan wilds where, at gunpoint, he forced them to flee nude across the dark icy tundra before executing them as prey.  
	PETER FOSTER was one victim's father. He blamed the couple's alibi for his daughter's death. When he was later accused of murdering the cabinet maker, he called his friend and former law partner, Logan, to defend him. Logan, a law professor in Arizona, agreed to help. He enlists LACEY CARPENTER, a woman he can't commit to, nor live without, to be his co-counsel. Together they solve the crime and re-ignite their long-distance relationship as Logan learns through his mother's death the importance of having a good relation at the end of one's life. 
	Logan and Lacey uncover a network of corruption in the Anchorage Police Department. and a powerful evangelical church that concealed JACK JANSEN'S killings to rid the streets of prostitutes.

    “Clear and lucid” poems from a US Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize winner who “journeys through the landscape of memory, consciousness, loss, and love” (The Washington Post).   Kay Ryan is acclaimed for her highly relatable, deeply insightful poems. Erratic Facts is her first new collection since the Pulitzer Prize–winning The Best of It, and it is animated with her signature swift, clearheaded, lyrical style.   At once witty and melancholy, playful and heartfelt, Ryan examines enormous subjects—existence, consciousness, love, loss—in compact poems that have immensely powerful resonance. Her sly rhymes and strong cadences convey both musicality and wisdom. While these pieces are composed of the same brevity and vitality that have characterized her singular voice over the course of more than twenty years, her imagination is more eccentric and daring than ever. Erratic Facts solidifies Ryan’s place at the pinnacle of American poetry.   “Read a poem once and take in its crisp rhythms, subtle rhymes, and arresting images. Read it again and detect its hide-and-seek metaphors and meanings. . . . [Ryan’s] quantum poems pose resonant questions of physics and metaphysics, of attentiveness and caring on scales intimate and universal.” —Booklist

    Tamburlaine the Great Part 1

    Tamburlaine the Great is the name of a play in two parts by Christopher Marlowe. It is loosely based on the life of the Central Asian emperor, Timur 'the lame'. Written in 1587 or 1588, the play is a milestone in Elizabethan public drama; it marks a turning away from the clumsy language and loose plotting of the earlier Tudor dramatists, and a new interest in fresh and vivid language, memorable action, and intellectual complexity. Along with Thomas Kyd's The Spanish Tragedy, it may be considered the first popular success of London's public stage.Marlowe, generally considered the greatest of the University Wits, influenced playwrights well into the Jacobean period, and echoes of Tamburlaine's bombast and ambition can be found in English plays all the way to the Puritan closing of the theaters in 1642. While Tamburlaine is considered inferior to the great tragedies of the late-Elizabethan and early-Jacobean period, its significance in creating a stock of themes and, especially, in demonstrating the potential of blank verse in drama, are still acknowledged.
