DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Winner of the Independent Publisher Book Award for Best Visionary Fiction: “A lyrical, thoughtful, viral meme of a book” (Christopher Moore, author of Noir). It all starts when a mischievous artist kicks off a game of graffiti tag by painting the phrase, “Uh-oh” on an overpass. Next, an anonymous interlocutor writes back: “When?” Then someone slyly answers: “Just a couple of days.” But exactly what will happen in just a couple of days? Readers don’t have long to wait before Professor Blip Korterly is arrested and his molecular biologist friend Dr. Flake Fountain is drafted into a shadow-government research project to develop the ultimate weapon: a biological agent that will render its targets unable to understand symbols, thus disrupting humanity’s ability to communicate. Soon, an accidental outbreak turns into a merry-hearted, babble-inducing apocalypse that will either destroy humankind or take it to the next step in evolution. Praised by Tom Robbins who said it “may be the most unusual, the most original novel I have ever read,” Tony Vigorito’s debut novel is an underground hit that ponders what might happen at the end of time. “Vigorito’s . . . irreverent, whimsical style . . . has attracted a cult following... The final apocalyptic vision is a twist not seen since Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle. Recommended.” —Library Journal

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

For fans of Gone Girl, a blockbuster thriller about a young woman whose abduction unravels a story more sinister than anyone could have imagined... "I've been following her for the past few days. I know where she buys her groceries, where she has her dry cleaning done, where she works. I don't know the colour of her eyes or what they look like when she's scared. But I will." Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner–city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on–again, off–again boyfriend. When he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, at first Colin Thatcher seems like a safe one–night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life. Mia soon finds herself at the centre of a wild extortion plot. Colin's job was to abduct Mia and deliver her to his employers. But the plan takes an unexpected turn when Colin suddenly decides to hide Mia in a secluded cabin in rural Minnesota, evading the police and his deadly superiors. Mia's mother, Eve, and Detective Gabe Hoffman will stop at nothing to find them, but no one could have predicted the emotional entanglements that eventually cause this family's world to shatter. An addictively suspenseful and tautly written thriller, The Good Girl is a compulsive debut that reveals how even in the perfect family, nothing is as it seems... “Psychologically rich and pulse pounding, The Good Girl had me hooked from the very first sentence and didn't let go until the final word.” – Heather Gudenkauf, bestselling author of The Weight of Silence and Little Mercies

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Even though it feels like there’s never enough time or energy, trust Annie and Doug...THERE IS! Creeping into middle age and saddled with work deadlines, child rearing, homemaking, and fourteen years of togetherness, an ordinary, happy but harried couple set an outlandish goal: to have sex for 101 consecutive days–no excuses (not even the flu, late-night child wanderings, or flat-out exhaustion). What ensued is by turns hilarious, tender, and seductive–including sexual romps in hotels, at an ashram, in a basement, and atop boulders, but most often in their own bedroom, which they dubbed the “sex den.” As Doug and Annie Brown literally screwed their way through months of a cold Colorado winter, they turned up the heat by attending the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas; taking Bikram “hot” yoga to get limber; and stocking up on candles, Viagra, lube, lingerie, and sex toys galore. In addition to the awe found in their ability to get it on day after day–and actually enjoy it–they were more surprised and touched by how much closer it made them. As Doug Brown lays everything bare, we get an inside look at the male mind and discover that a good husband and a good dad can also be one hell of a lover.
