More Details..

It was the lies he told that reminded me of that past of mine that I hadn't encountered in a while. He was telling me the kinds of lies where the teller implies that things that have only happened to him once are long-running habits. Things about too much whiskey, Céline and De Sade, eating alone in expensive Japanese restaurants, knowing nobody (this last fact he would continue to repeat in later meetings, it seeming more barbarously unreal each time). -- from Nicola, Milan

Vaguely employed as a brand strategist in a B-version of the Italian Glamour export economy, the twenty-five-year-old unnamed narrator of Nicola, Milan is an international loner, watch checker, tip leaver, shit-talker, drifting from bar to airport lounge, taxi to hotel foyer, drunk and caffeinated at the same time, trying to explain to you the finer points of how to pitch an idea of Italy to Americans.

But when he meets the slightly older, richer, and worldlier Nicola, he becomes fascinated with him, seeing Nicola as a transcendental exemplar of the international-creative class culture he both envies and loathes. As the narrator stalks Nicola through the streets of Milan and its outskirts, what began as a casual friendship develops into an obsessive attachment, a crisis of identity connecting two hustlers, and a struggle against the quiet oblivion usually hidden by the web of tics and affectations that constitute a personality.

Combining a Houellebecq-like sense of the psychic malaise beneath the surface of contemporary cultural life with the dispassionate voice of a police report, Nicola, Milan tells a story of perverse, asexual frenzy emptying out into the void.

More Details..

<b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER</b><br><br>Throughout her blockbuster career, Jodi Picoult has seamlessly blended nuanced characters, riveting plots, and rich prose, brilliantly creating stories that “not only provoke the mind but touch the flawed souls in all of us” (<i>The Boston Globe</i>). Now, in her highly anticipated new novel, she has delivered her most affecting work yet—a book unlike anything she’s written before.<br>  <br> For more than a decade, Jenna Metcalf has never stopped thinking about her mother, Alice, who mysteriously disappeared in the wake of a tragic accident. Refusing to believe she was abandoned, Jenna searches for her mother regularly online and pores over the pages of Alice’s old journals. A scientist who studied grief among elephants, Alice wrote mostly of her research among the animals she loved, yet Jenna hopes the entries will provide a clue to her mother’s whereabouts.<br>  <br> Desperate to find the truth, Jenna enlists two unlikely allies in her quest: Serenity Jones, a psychic who rose to fame finding missing persons, only to later doubt her gifts, and Virgil Stanhope, the jaded private detective who’d originally investigated Alice’s case along with the strange, possibly linked death of one of her colleagues. As the three work together to uncover what happened to Alice, they realize that in asking hard questions, they’ll have to face even harder answers.<br>  <br> As Jenna’s memories dovetail with the events in her mother’s journals, the story races to a mesmerizing finish. A deeply moving, gripping, and intelligent page-turner, <i>Leaving Time</i> is Jodi Picoult at the height of her powers.<br><br><b>Praise for <i>Leaving Time</i></b><br> <b><i> </i></b><br> “This moving tale of a girl searching for her missing mom blends suspense, the supernatural and heartbreaking insights into elephants.”<b>—<i>People</i></b><br>  <br> “A riveting drama.”<b>—<i>Us Weekly</i></b><br>  <br> “With plenty of twists and a surprising ending, [<i>Leaving Time</i>] explores the grieving process and what happens when we cannot move on.”<b>—<i>Woman’s Day</i></b><br>  <br> “Best-selling, reliably entertaining, and thought-provoking Picoult’s newest multifaceted novel is redolent with elephant lore that explores the animals’ behavior when faced with death and grief, and combines a poignant tale of human loss with a perplexing crime story that delivers a powerhouse ending.”<b>—<i>Booklist</i></b><br>  <br> “An entertaining tale about parental love, friendship, [and] loss.”<b>—<i>The Washington Post</i></b><br>  <br> “A truly engaging read . . . perfect for Picoult fans and book clubs.”<b>—<i>Library Journal</i></b><br>  <br> “Picoult’s novel explores grief, memory, and motherhood through the unlikely lens of elephant behavior. . . . The pachyderms are as complex as the humans, making the journey memorable and poignant.”<b>—<i>Publishers Weekly</i></b><br><br><b>Praise for Jodi Picoult</b><br>  <br> “Picoult writes with unassuming brilliance.”<b>—Stephen King</b><br>  <br> “It’s hard to exaggerate how well Picoult writes.”<b>—<i>Financial Times</i></b><br>  <br> “Picoult writes with a fine touch, a sharp eye for detail, and a firm grasp of the delicacy and complexity of human relationships.”<b>—<i>The Boston Globe</i></b><br>  <br> “Picoult is a master of the craft of storytelling.”<b>—Associated Press</b>

More Details..

<div><b>A moving and eloquent novel about love, grief, renewal—and the powerful language of flowers.</b><br>  <br> Ruby Jewell knows flowers. In her twenty years as a florist she has stood behind the counter at the Flower Shoppe with her faithful dog, Clementine, resting at her feet. A customer can walk in, and with just a glance or a few words, Ruby can throw together the perfect arrangement for any occasion.<br>  <br> Whether intended to rekindle a romance, mark a celebration, offer sympathy, or heal a broken heart, her expressive floral designs mark the moments and milestones in the lives of her neighbors. It’s as though she knows just what they want to say, just what they need.<br>  <br> Yet Ruby’s own heart’s desires have gone ignored since the death of her beloved sister. It will take an invitation from a man who’s flown to the moon, the arrival of a unique little boy, and concern from a charming veterinarian to reawaken her wounded spirit. Any life can be derailed, but the healing power of community can put it right again.<br><br><br> READERS GUIDE INSIDE</div>
