      Peri, a married, wealthy, beautiful Turkish woman, is on her way to a dinner party in Istanbul when a beggar snatches her handbag.
      Peri, a married, wealthy, beautiful Turkish woman, is on her way to a dinner party in Istanbul when a beggar snatches her handbag. As she wrestles to get it back, a photograph falls to the ground--an old polaroid of three young women and their university professor. A relic from a past Peri had tried desperately to forget. Peri arrives at the party and navigates the tensions that simmer in this crossroads country between East and West, religious and secular, rich and poor. Over the course of the dinner, and amidst an opulence that is surely ill-begotten, terrorist attacks occur across the city. Competing in Peri's mind are the memories invoked by her almost-lost polaroid, of the time years earlier when she was sent abroad to attend Oxford. As a young woman there, she had become friends with the charming, adventurous Shirin, a fully assimilated Iranian girl, and Mona, a devout Egyptian-American. Their arguments about Islam and feminism find focus in the charismatic but controversial Professor Azur, who teaches divinity, but in unorthodox ways. As the terrorist attacks come ever closer, Peri is moved to recall the scandal that tore them all apart.

With Alfred--a formerly promising novelist--now struggling with his latest work, Rita has been tasked with caring for their adopted son Wolfie, a sensitive First Nations teen who has been designated as "special needs" for much of his life. Rita's resentments and frustrations are further embittered by her younger half-sister, Asta, a constant reminder of the innocence, idealism, and sexual allure Rita once had and yearns for again. The fragile impasse of their lives is torn asunder by the appearance of Janice, the surviving member of the Indigenous family who leased the land to Rita and Asta's reclusive and mysterious father over fifty years ago. With the lease now expired, they are all engulfed by the secrets and contradictions of their lives and of the land itself--in both the past and the present--and their stories are drawn inexorably toward an unspeakable tragedy.

    • Summary :
      Translated from the French by Fred A.
      Translated from the French by Fred A. Reed and David Homel. Set between 1913 and 1963 in one of Montreal's well-known, upper-middle-class, suburban neighbourhoods, Martine Desjardins's The Green Chamber is a riveting, fast-paced, highly atmospheric novel that chronicles the decline of a wealthy French-Canadian family over the course of three generations. Every house has its secrets, but none hides them better than the august house of the Delorme family. With its sixty-seven locks, brass-grilled counters, and impenetrable underground vault - where lie the mummified remains of a woman clutching a brick between her teeth - the Delorme residence may be apprehended as The Green Chamber's central persona. A private bank of a sort, it has always held its lot of ill-acquired gains, hidden vices, cruel rituals, and illicit substances away from prying eyes. Louis-Dollard Delorme, his miserly wife Estelle, and his three spinster sisters revere money so much that they have converted their residence's "green chamber" into a place of worship and have elevated domestic penny-pinching to an art form. As for the family's heir, Vincent, they intend for him to make a highly profitable marriage - a reasonable prospect, until the day when the house opens its doors to Penny Sterling, a young woman whose means equal only her curiosity. Desjardins's humorous gothic saga - with its gallery of eccentric characters who play the races in secret and sniff vanilla extract - reveals and revels in the fate of family fortunes: the first generation makes the money, the second generation maintains it, and the third blows it. The novel's plot and themes arise, larger than life, from the history of the author's own family, and from that of her suburban hometown, Mount Royal, whose founding is closely linked to the development of Canada's national railroad and early industry. The Green Chamber exposes the birth of capitalistic religiosity and sheds light on our economic present: personal finances, once based on a nest-egg savings system, have become a credit-based and debt-ridden travesty

      The year is 1910.
      The year is 1910. Nate Cooper is an old-school cowboy who has spent nearly thirty years in a Montana prison of a wrongful life sentence for a false murder conviction. Nate's moral compass is true and unwavering: he does all the wrong things for all the right reasons. Upon his release he learns that the turn of the century has brought great change--none of it good. Horses are being replaced by the motorcar, his girlfriend has long ago married his best friend, his nemesis is running for Governor, and the Blackfoot Indians (the people he went to prison trying to defend) are still being betrayed by ranchers. So some things haven't changed. Nate is one of them. He returns to his Northern Montana ranching town a free man and stirs up the pot of controversy immediately--seeking justice, evading hired guns, brawling in saloons, righting past wrongs, and ferreting out--with the help of a young newspaper reporter and the woman he used to love--a fraudulent boundary adjustment robbing the Blackfoot (again) of their territory. Along the way, he ruffles feathers all the way to the State House, and before the storm he brings is over, he and the friends of his youth will all pay a shockingly high price for justice.

      In a first-time collaboration, "Queen of Suspense" Mary Higgins Clark partners with bestselling author Alafair Burke to deliver a brand new suspense series about a television program featuring cold case murders. Television producer Laurie Moran is delighted when the pilot for her reality drama, Under Suspicion, is a success. Even more, the program--a cold case series that revisits unsolved crimes by recreating them with those affected--is off to a fantastic start when it helps solve an infamous murder in the very first episode. Now Laurie has the ideal case to feature in the next episode of Under Suspicion: the Cinderella Murder. When Susan Dempsey, a beautiful and multi-talented UCLA student, was found dead, her murder raised numerous questions. Why was her car parked miles from her body? Had she ever shown up for the acting audition she was due to attend at the home of an up-and-coming director? Why does Susan's boyfriend want to avoid questions about their relationship? Was her disappearance connected to a controversial church that was active on campus? Was she close to her computer science professor because of her technological brilliance, or something more? And why was Susan missing one of her shoes when her body was discovered? With the help of lawyer and Under Suspicion host Alex Buckley, Laurie knows the case will attract great ratings, especially when the former suspects include Hollywood's elite and tech billionaires. The suspense and drama are perfect for the silver screen--but is Cinderella's murderer ready for a close-up?

      This is not an audiobook about successful relationships.
      This is not an audiobook about successful relationships. This is an audiobook — and a very, very funny one — about the humiliations we endure to find love and the lessons that can be culled from the wreckage. Inspired by her New York Times “Modern Love” essay about getting the brush-off from an indie rock musician, I Don’t Care About Your Band is the true story of comedy writer Julie Klausner’s rocky road to romantic enlightenment, brimming with explicit insights that will resonate with any woman who’s ever dated the meek, the vain, or the damaged. According to Klausner, “what Sarah Vowell is to American history, I am to guys in their thirties who’ve never been married, ride their bikes to work, and really like Death Cab for Cutie.” By turns edgy and deeply personal — with rapid-fire humor throughout — I Don’t Care About Your Band shows the evolution of a young woman who endured myriad encounters with some hilariously twisted characters, to emerge with real-world wisdom on matters of the heart.

      In the summer of 1941, at the height of the war in the Western Desert, a bored and eccentric young officer, David Stirling, came up with a plan that was radical and entirely against the rules: a small undercover unit that would inflict mayhem behind enemy lines. Despite intense opposition, Winston Churchill personally gave Stirling permission to recruit the toughest, brightest and most ruthless soldiers he could find. So began the most celebrated and mysterious military organisation in the world: the SAS. Now, 75 years later, the SAS has finally decided to tell its astonishing story. It has opened its secret archives for the first time, granting historian Ben Macintyre full access to a treasure trove of unseen reports, memos, diaries, letters, maps and photographs, as well as free rein to interview surviving Originals and those who knew them. The result is an exhilarating tale of fearlessness and heroism, recklessness and tragedy; of extraordinary men who were willing to take monumental risks. It is a story about the meaning of courage.

      A groundbreaking guide to defeating diabetes without drugs--including a step-by-step diet plan, recipes, and the science behind why the program works--from #1 New York Times bestseller Dr.
      A groundbreaking guide to defeating diabetes without drugs--including a step-by-step diet plan, recipes, and the science behind why the program works--from #1 New York Times bestseller Dr. Michael Mosley whose life-changing FastDiet series brought on "a health revolution" (New York Times). Thirteen percent of the US population (thirty million Americans) has diabetes. Eighty-six million Americans have pre-diabetes, meaning their blood sugar levels are dangerously high, and they are teetering on the edge of full-blown diabetes. The CDC estimates that 40% of the current adult population (ninety million Americans) will at some point develop diabetes, a disease that, until recently, was considered irreversible. In this trailblazing book, Michael Mosley, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the FastDiet series, introduces revolutionary new research that indicates diabetes can be treated--and cured--without drugs and their harmful side effects. By following a simple diet of 800 calories a day for six weeks, patients have seen blood glucose levels decrease by a huge margin. With the same encouraging, practical demeanor and invaluable physician's mind of his FastDiet series, Mosley tackles the Type 2 diabetes epidemic with a completely approachable treatment program that can help you reverse the disease--or prevent its onset--in a matter of weeks.

      n 1978 Warren Fellows was convicted of heroin trafficking between Thailand and Australia, and sentenced to life imprisonment in the notorious Bang Kwang prison, better known as the Bangkok Hilton. It was the beginning of 12 years of hell in a place where sewer rats and cockroaches are the only nutritious food, where prison guards laugh as they deliver pulverising blows and where the worst punishment is the khun deo, solitary confinement, Thai style. This is not Warren Fellows' plea for forgiveness nor his denial of guilt, but a story of endurance and survival and the abuse of human rights during the decade of a life wasted in leg irons. It is an essential read: hearbreaking, fascinating and impossible to put down.
