Published: Ecco - June 5th, 2018

What would you risk for love? That’s the question at the heart of Debra Jo Immergut’s compelling new novel, THE CAPTIVES. Frank is a psychologist at a women’s prison. When Miranda, an inmate, walks into his office for an initial consultation Frank immediately recognizes her as the girl that he was obsessed with in high school fifteen years earlier. Meanwhile Miranda is doing time for following her lover down an increasingly dangerous, crime-laden path that ultimately resulted in embezzlement and murder. Frank would do anything for Miranda and wants to prove it. Miranda cannot reciprocate Frank’s feelings, yet she cannot resist the opportunity for the freedom and new life that only he can offer. Immergut’s story is one of passionate desire confronting immorality, of careers and bright futures succumbing to lust. It is psychological, taut and masterfully written. A real page-turner.

Whether you classify it as History or True Crime, this account of the murder trial of Harry Thaw, the well-to-do ne'er-do-well who married a heart-stoppingly gorgeous teenager then killed her lover (or molester, depending on your point of view) is a fresh, modern look at a fabled case. The murdered man was Stanford White, the most celebrated architect of the Gilded Age, and Thaw shot him in the head in front of dozens of people -- and was found not guilty! Familiar to many from RAGTIME, this has been the subject of many books, documentaries, and movies, yet remains a surprising, fascinating story.

$29.65
Out of Stock Indefinitely
ISBN: 9780525520177
Published: Knopf - February 27th, 2018

Carey uses the Australian cross-country Redux auto trials of the 1950s to explore how the need to be accepted directs our motivations and accordingly, our fates. Husband and wife Titch and Irene Bobs join up with their neighbor and maps expert, Willy Bachhuber, to race the Redux. For Titch, an opportunistic car salesman, the race represents the chance to seize national fame and what’s more, the respect of his larger-than-life father. Titch recruits Irene and Willy as his co-driver and navigator, respectively. Throughout their journey Carey delves into Australia’s virulent racism toward its indigenous populations and its embedded intolerance of miscegenation. Carey’s wit, heart and intelligence are everywhere apparent in this epic road trip novel, narrated in alternating chapters by Irene and Willy. As the miles accumulate Irene’s and Willy’s lives change in profound ways that neither could have anticipated. And we, in turn, experience with awe Carey’s peerless skill in bringing these characters and this place and time so vibrantly and thrillingly to life.

Marilyn Monroe is not just one of the essential movie stars, she is an inexhaustible subject for writers, too many of whom work backwards from her sad death to depict a sad life. Not Elizabeth Winder, who devotes her book to a single year: 1954, Marilyn's "Year of Joy," as the subtitle has it, when the world's biggest star left Hollywood for Manhattan to study acting. Many of her classmates and pals became big stars, too, which makes encountering them here as much fun for the reader as it seems to have been for the optimistic, energized Marilyn of this book.
