Not My Father’s Son: A Memoir

Not My Father’s Son: A Memoir

Neil Gaiman says this is "Equal parts memoir, whodunit, and manual for living . . . a beautifully written, honest look at the forces of blood and bone that make us who we are, and how we make ourselves." From the publisher: "A beloved star of stage (Cabaret, television (The Good Wife), and film—Alan Cumming is a successful artist whose diversity and fearlessness is unparalleled. When television producers in the UK approached him to appear on a popular celebrity genealogy show in 2010, Alan enthusiastically agreed. He hoped the show would solve a family mystery involving his maternal grandfather, a celebrated WWII hero who disappeared in the Far East. But as the truth of his family ancestors revealed itself, Alan learned far more than he bargained for about himself, his past, and his own father." Add Audible narration (read by Alan Cumming).

Writers & Lovers

I'd been eagerly awaiting the follow-up to King’s award-winning 2014 novel Euphoria. This much-anticipated novel follows Casey Peabody, who is mourning the sudden death of her mother plus a messy break-up in 1997 Massachusetts. Lost without direction, 31-year-old Casey waits tables to make ends meet while she works on her novel in a tiny, dingy rented room. While her friends have given up on their artistic ambitions in favor of stability and the next phase of life, Casey still harbors creative dreams and firmly grasps her youth. When she finds herself in the middle of a love triangle, it becomes all the more difficult to balance her art with "real life," and she just might reach her breaking point. It has one of the most satisfying endings I've read in ages. More info →

You Can’t Keep a Good Woman Down: Stories

You Can’t Keep a Good Woman Down: Stories

From the publisher: "Women stand their ground in the midst of crisis in this story collection by the New York Times–bestselling author of The Color Purple. The women in these tenderly wrought tales face their problems head on, proving powerful and self-possessed even when degraded by others—sometimes by those closest to them. But even as the female protagonists face exploitation, social asymmetries, and casual cruelties, Walker leavens her stories with ample wit and, as always, an eye for the redemptive power of love. A collection that reveals a master of fiction approaching the fullness of her talent, these are the stories Walker produced while penning The Color Purple. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Alice Walker including rare photos from the author’s personal collection." More info →
