A Tightly Raveled Mind
A Tightly Raveled Mind
Diane Lawson’s hot new mystery novel, A Tightly Raveled Mind.  ”A cunning, elegantly written comedy of manners in the form of a murder mystery in which a psychoanalyst finds her wealthy clientele dropping. Literally…This shrink can really throw it down.” (Kirkus Reviews)

The Amado Women
The Amado Women
Désirée Zamorano’s Amado Women celebrated by none other than Dagoberto Gilb: “Far from the cholos and maids of a cliché Latino Los Angeles, these beautiful Amado women dine at chichi hotels and restaurants, carry plush designer bags, and steer new cars into suburbias. But Zamorano doesn’t leave it at that—because even an American dream-fulfilled life is still full of real life, and what alone endures is family.”

Cold Type
Cold Type
It’s not all a woman’s world. In Cold Type New York Times columnist Harvey Araton tells a gripping tale of the newspaper industry in New York City when things were beginning to fall apart. Robert Lypsite says, “Father and son face their demons, each other, and a depressingly realistic publisher in a newspaper yarn that made me yell ‘Hold the front page!’”

Otherwise, My Life is Ordinary
Otherwise, My Life is Ordinary
Looking for stocking stuffers? Throw in Bobby Byrd’s new book of poems, Otherwise, My Life is OrdinaryWhy? Because Bobby makes a good pot of beans.

Growing up in Memphis, #3:
In 1952 Dewey Phillips invented Elvis.
It happened on the radio.
Rock n' Roll saved my life.
In 1960 the bad guys sold Elvis into slavery.
Don't let anybody tell you different.
