<b>A young New Yorker grieving his mother's death is pulled into a gritty underworld of art and wealth in this "extraordinary" and beloved Pulitzer Prize winner that "connects with the heart as well as the mind" (Stephen King, <i>New York Times Book Review</i>).</b><br />Theo Decker, a 13-year-old New Yorker, miraculously survives an accident that kills his mother. Abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. Bewildered by his strange new home on Park Avenue, disturbed by schoolmates who don't know how to talk to him, and tormented above all by a longing for his mother, he clings to the one thing that reminds him of her: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into a wealthy and insular art community.<br />As an adult, Theo moves silkily between the drawing rooms of the rich and the dusty labyrinth of an antiques store where he works. He is alienated and in love -- and at the center of a narrowing, ever more dangerous circle.<br /><i>The Goldfinch</i> is a mesmerizing, stay-up-all-night and tell-all-your-friends triumph, an old-fashioned story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention. From the streets of New York to the dark corners of the art underworld, this "soaring masterpiece" examines the devastating impact of grief and the ruthless machinations of fate (Ron Charles, <i>Washington Post</i>).<br />

At only thirty-two, Bishop Stockley has lived a hard-knock life. His gang was his family, the streets his home. Until the crew he鈥檇 always called his brothers betrayed him. After doing five years in a federal prison, Bishop is back at his dad鈥檚 trailer and working for his landscaping company, thrust into a legit world where he鈥檚 no longer the alpha鈥攁 world where a criminal record is the least of his disadvantages, because Bishop can鈥檛 read or write. Illiteracy had never been an obstacle for him on the streets, he didn鈥檛 need to know how to read <i>Moby Dick</i> to survive, he needed to know how to read people鈥?and that was a hustle he鈥檇 learned hard and fast. Now, he had to change his life.<br /><br />Bishop鈥檚 only support system was a young, inexperienced dad who鈥檇 insisted he call him Mike all their life鈥攕ince they looked more like brothers than father and son. And his hot-tempered, childhood, best friend from 鈥檍uvie, Trent. Bishop already had the deck stacked against him, but he wasn鈥檛 afraid of hard work to change his situation, and he did want to change. Especially after he encountered Edison Scala, a kind-spirited office manager who didn鈥檛 hesitate to come to his defense鈥?a man that saw past Bishop鈥檚 grass-stained coveralls. A man who wasn鈥檛 intimidated by his stern features and his silence.<br /><br />Edison hadn鈥檛 grown up the way most of his peers had. He鈥檇 been raised by a single father who鈥檇 owned an old-fashioned barber shop where Edison was taught how to not only shave with a straight razor, and shine shoes, but also how to treat others, to not judge, to be a gentleman, to be respectful and speak without profanity. But, the biggest lesson he鈥檇 learned, was to always be himself. His lack of friends and a social life wasn鈥檛 his fault. No matter how much weight he gained, no matter how many times his staff called him a square, Edison did not need to change.<br /><br />Bishop knew Edison was off-limits. He鈥檇 made personal vows to himself when he was released from prison, ones that he never intended to break. But, when Edison asked him about providing landscaping services at his home, there was no way he could refuse. He hadn鈥檛 expected Edison to feed him, praise him, encourage him, and look at him the way he did鈥攁s if Bishop was somebody. Mike and Trent warned him not to mix business with pleasure and he didn鈥檛 intend to.<br /><br /><i>No multiple pairings.</i> <i>No cliffhangers.</i> <i>Ends with a very, very HFN.</i><br /><i>Warning:</i> <br /><i>This book is a M/M contemporary romance, a hardened man鈥檚 struggle to find real love.</i> <i>There are no police chases or doors being kicked in, in this one.</i> <i>But, don鈥檛 worry.</i> <i>Bishop is still intense enough to keep you on the edge.</i><br /><br />

And yet we played on, because we had hope that we might be the lucky ones."</i><br /> <br /> In the early 1900s, teenaged Sunja, the adored daughter of a crippled fisherman, falls for a wealthy stranger at the seashore near her home in Korea. He promises her the world, but when she discovers she is pregnant--and that her lover is married--she refuses to be bought. Instead, she accepts an offer of marriage from a gentle, sickly minister passing through on his way to Japan. But her decision to abandon her home, and to reject her son's powerful father, sets off a dramatic saga that will echo down through the generations.<br /> <br /> Richly told and profoundly moving, Pachinko is a story of love, sacrifice, ambition, and loyalty. From bustling street markets to the halls of Japan's finest universities to the pachinko parlors of the criminal underworld, Lee's complex and passionate characters--strong, stubborn women, devoted sisters and sons, fathers shaken by moral crisis--survive and thrive against the indifferent arc of history.<br /><br /><i>*Includes reading group guide*</i><br />

Club, <em>Nylon,</em> The Week, The Rumpus, The Millions, <em>The Guardian, Publishers Weekly,</em> and more<br /><br />Poet Ocean Vuong鈥檚 debut novel is a shattering portrait of a family, a first love, and the redemptive power of storytelling</strong><br /><br /><em>On Earth We鈥檙e Briefly Gorgeous</em> is a letter from a son to a mother who cannot read. Written when the speaker, Little Dog, is in his late twenties, the letter unearths a family鈥檚 history that began before he was born 鈥?a history whose epicenter is rooted in Vietnam 鈥?and serves as a doorway into parts of his life his mother has never known, all of it leading to an unforgettable revelation. At once a witness to the fraught yet undeniable love between a single mother and her son, it is also a brutally honest exploration of race, class, and masculinity. Asking questions central to our American moment, immersed as we are in addiction, violence, and trauma, but undergirded by compassion and tenderness, <em>On Earth We鈥檙e Briefly Gorgeous</em> is as much about the power of telling one鈥檚 own story as it is about the obliterating silence of not being heard. <br /><br />With stunning urgency and grace, Ocean Vuong writes of people caught between disparate worlds, and asks how we heal and rescue one another without forsaking who we are. The question of how to survive, and how to make of it a kind of joy, powers the most important debut novel of many years.</p>
