L.I.E. David Hollander
The characters in David Hollander's L.I.E. inhabit a suburban wasteland where dreams are built and dashed, where existence oscillates between futile and impossible. Hear Hollander read from his wise and witty coming-of-age story and read an interview with the author.
Provinces of Night William Gay
William Gay is a Southern writer who's only on his second novel but is already standing up to comparisons to Larry Brown, Cormac McCarthy, and William Faulkner. Here, his debut short story, an excerpt from his new book, and, most importantly, a recording of him reading in an indescribable smoky Hohenwald, Tennessee accent.
Angelhead Greg Bottoms
In Angelhead, Greg Bottoms has written a powerful and entirely unique memoir that grips the reader from the very first sentence. He recounts with clarity and compassion his eldest brother's gradual descent into the darkness of schizophrenia.
How to Stop Time Anne Marlowe
Ann Marlowe's How to Stop Time is an intensely clear, cool and collected work, wise and unapologetic, in a genre--the heroin memoir--known more for its (sometimes very accomplished) hysteria of attitudes, dramas, and structures.
michel houellebecq
Michel Houellebecq's controversial novel was a bestseller in his native France and has just been published in the United States. The Elementary Particles follows two half-brothers through the damage from their parents' bohemian lifestyle and no one escapes the author's fury.
