Summary

It’s not easy being in charge of other people’s lives, and when you’re the type of person that has loose morals and street values, it makes the job that much more exciting but stressful. Roberta ‘Roby’ Charles is living her best life, being an unscrupulous parole officer for the State of Missouri. She’s an alcoholic that likes to use her authority to get recreational drugs and sex from the clients that she serves, and she’s been able to get away with it until a client reports Roby to her supervisor. Now she’s having to clean up her act or at least prove that the client was lying, but that might not be so easy with a new client trying to get into her pants.
 
Calhoun Washington is a recent parolee that has a bounty on his head and three strikes against him. He has plans to get his share of a lick that he’d hit right before he went back to prison and get out of town before someone takes his life. To make matters worse, Calhoun has to report to his parole officer, Roberta Charles, but instead of trying to work his court ordered plan, he’s trying to work what’s in between her legs, and that isn’t so easy to do. She’s fighting for her own survival and isn’t interested in his advances, and there’s another parolee in her case load that is making it difficult for him to even try.
 
Thaddeus Brown is on parole for money laundering and is another parolee in Roberta Charles’s case load. He has some mental health issues going on and takes a liking to Roby because she genuinely seems to care about his well-being. There’s an obvious attraction between the two of them that neither one of them can deny, and when Thad gets off of parole, he has plans on claiming Roby for himself. However, there are a lot of secrets about Thad’s life that Roby doesn’t know, and it might push them further apart instead of bringing them together.

    A #1 Indie Next Pick and LibraryReads Selection 
    Magic, adventure, mystery, and romance combine in this epic debut in which a young princess must reclaim her dead mother’s throne, learn to be a ruler—and defeat the Red Queen, a powerful and malevolent sorceress determined to destroy her. 
    On her nineteenth birthday, Princess Kelsea Raleigh Glynn, raised in exile, sets out on a perilous journey back to the castle of her birth to ascend her rightful throne. Plain and serious, a girl who loves books and learning, Kelsea bears little resemblance to her mother, the vain and frivolous Queen Elyssa. But though she may be inexperienced and sheltered, Kelsea is not defenseless: Around her neck hangs the Tearling sapphire, a jewel of immense magical power; and accompanying her is the Queen’s Guard, a cadre of brave knights led by the enigmatic and dedicated Lazarus. Kelsea will need them all to survive a cabal of enemies who will use every weapon—from crimson-caped assassins to the darkest blood magic—to prevent her from wearing the crown. 
    Despite her royal blood, Kelsea feels like nothing so much as an insecure girl, a child called upon to lead a people and a kingdom about which she knows almost nothing. But what she discovers in the capital will change everything, confronting her with horrors she never imagined. An act of singular daring will throw Kelsea’s kingdom into tumult, unleashing the vengeance of the tyrannical ruler of neighboring Mortmesne: the Red Queen, a sorceress possessed of the darkest magic. Now Kelsea will begin to discover whom among the servants, aristocracy, and her own guard she can trust. 
    But the quest to save her kingdom and meet her destiny has only just begun—a wondrous journey of self-discovery and a trial by fire that will make her a legend . . . if she can survive. 
    This book will be a beautifully designed package with illustrated endpapers, a map of the Tearling, and a ribbon marker.

    One morning, Hazel Brown awakes in a badly decorated hotel room to find that she’s written the complete works of Charles Baudelaire. In her bemusement the hotel becomes every cheap room she ever stayed in during her youthful perambulations in 1980s Paris … This is the legend of a she-dandy’s life. 
    
    
    Part magical realism, part feminist ars poetica, part history of tailoring, part bibliophilic anthem, part love affair with nineteenth-century painting, The Baudelaire Fractal is poet and art writer Lisa Robertson’s first novel.
    
    ‘As far as I’m concerned, it’s already a classic.’ – Anne Boyer
    
    ‘Robertson’s debut novel, for those interested in the possibilities of fiction, is not to be missed.’ – Publishers Weekly
    
    ‘A new Lisa Robertson book is both a public event and a private kind of bacchanal.’ – Los Angeles Review of Books

    From award-winning Hong Kong writer Chan Ho-kei, Second Sister tells the story two sisters Nga-Yee and Siu-Man. When Siu-Man’s body is found lying on the ground outside their building, Nga-Yee begins a gripping investigation into her sister’s life and the reasons she might have jumped.Extremely timely, online bullying, “fake news” spread through digital media and a Hong Kong awash in foreign venture capital all play a role in what appears a simple domestic drama. Second Sister takes full advantage of Ho-Kei’s background as a computer engineer—he gets the culture of tech companies and online interaction, and explains complex concepts (the main character is a Luddite librarian) with elegant simplicity.Nga-Yee makes common cause with an irascible, unlicensed private investigator—really, a hacker who specializes in revenge and refuses cases he finds too easy.His previous novel The Borrowed was the story of Hong Kong’s past—taking readers from the Leftist Riot in 1967 up to the twenty-first century. Second Sister is about Hong Kong’s present, not just in terms of a highly-connected city in which many people live their whole lives on the internet, but also a vibrant, buzzing city full of inequality and contradictions.The Borrowed received rave reviews from World Literature Today, Booklist, Kirkus Reviews, and others.Film rights to The Borrowed were sold to Hong Kong director Wong Kar-wai (The Grandmaster, In the Mood for Love) in a major deal.Chan Ho-kei has won the Mystery Writers of Taiwan Award for his short story “The Locked room of Bluebeard” and the Soji Shimada Mystery Award for his novel The Man Who Sold the World.

    The Great American Novel

    This 1923 novel by the Pulitzer Prize–winning poet and author of Paterson satirizes American colonization, creative ambition, and the novel form itself.   One of the greatest American writers of the twentieth century, William Carlos Williams was an avid experimentalist in prose as well as poetry. Concerned about the state of the American novel, a form he felt was stunted by traditional tropes and genres, he set out to both parody and reject the prevailing clichés of fiction.   The result of this audacious project was The Great American Novel, which tells the story of a Ford car in love with a Mack truck. A hilarious satire of Americanism and a brilliant example of literary invention, Williams’s short novel set a precedent for American postmodern literature and metafiction.
