God help the woman I take home tonight. Band manager James Brandon never expected to find the elusive satisfaction he'd been chasing, let alone stumble upon it in some sleezy Hollywood meat market. Yet the girl's quiet pride spoke to him from across the bar, louder than a shout. Troubled, hungry and homeless, she'd placed her trust in him. But after losing the grip on his dark desires that one fateful night, James has spent the last four years atoning for letting her down. This time I'll finally crack him. Rock band drummer Lita Regina has had enough of James's guilt. She wants the explosive man she met that night in Hollywood. The man who held nothing back and took no prisoners--save Lita. And she'll stop at nothing to revive him. Even if it means throwing herself into peril at every turn, just to get a reaction from her stoic manager. But when Lita takes her quest one step too far, James disappears from her life, thinking his absence will keep her safe. Now it's up to Lita to bring James back...and ignite an inferno of passion in the process. Reader Advisory: ROUGH RHYTHM contains fantasies of nonconsensual sex, acted upon by consenting characters. Readers with sensitivity to portrayals of nonconsensual sex should be advised.

In his startling, witty, and inexhaustibly inventive first novel—first published in 1986 and now reissued as a Grove Press paperback—the author of Vox and The Fermata uses a one-story escalator ride as the occasion for a dazzling reappraisal of everyday objects and rituals. From the humble milk carton to the act of tying one’s shoes, The Mezzanine at once defamiliarizes the familiar world and endows it with loopy and euphoric poetry. Nicholson Baker’s accounts of the ordinary become extraordinary through his sharp storytelling and his unconventional, conversational style. At first glance, The Mezzanine appears to be a book about nothing. In reality, it is a brilliant celebration of things, simultaneously demonstrating the value of reflection and the importance of everyday human human experiences.

After King Orphanos’ brutal attack, Sadie Sugarspear heads back to the Grey Church to retrieve something that will help her find justice–her sword. On the way, Sadie battles through demons and dragons accompanied by a new friend, a wolf named Blue. Eventually, she reaches the sword, but before she can kill King Orphanos, she comes across something that she didn’t expect to ever find again: her one true love, Alasdair Astigan. Overwhelmed by emotion, Sadie is willing to give up on her journey to stay with Alasdair. When Alasdair is attacked and his life hangs in the balance, Sadie must go in search of the Three True Men, believing they can help save Alasdair and lead her on her way. But by the time she returns, Alasdair is gone—and standing by a pool of his blood is the Dark King, who once again has come for her soul. This book is intended for mature audiences and contains disturbing content that may cause the reader to delve into his or her own land of fantasy…just like Sadie. Praise for The Sadie Sugarspear Chronicles: “This book is to the literary world now what Wes Anderson films are in a world full of Magic Mike movies. It will challenge you…But if you open your mind and stretch back to the bygone era of literary symbolism that was Faulkner's As I Lay Dying, you will appreciate the shining jewel that is this book.” — A.D.
