March 2010 Debut of the Month. My favourite first novel of the month. A raw, compelling slice of teenage angst taken to the limits. It tells of the ‘new boy’ influencing a bunch of misfits, loners, who need to belong and who embrace the idea of forming an elite group. How he influences them and the dreadful consequences had me glued to the pages into the small hours. All teenagers wonder what life is about and if it’s worth it. This novel so captures that disillusionment, it’s painful. Very highly recommended. Comparison: Donna Tartt (Secret History), Joe Dunthorne (Submarine).
30th Anniversary edition. The Ruby Slippers of Oz exposes the clandestine and often treacherous underground of movie memorabilia. This Hollywood mystery may be the film industry's most bizarre account of ambition, greed, obsession, and deception. Something's afoot here as a colorful group of characters are spellbound by the charm and curse of the screen's most indelible and iconic image: The Ruby Slippers of Oz. Updated for the first time in 30 years, with many new revelations, this is a fascinating read for any Oz movie buff and those who love a good mystery.
This is not an ordinary love story, and Sam Holloway is not your typical hero. But he is a hero... Sam Holloway is 26 years old, and since a terrible tragedy struck in his life, he's lost faith in the world. As a means of keeping his grief at bay, he needs everything to be just so - he has a strict routine, from which he rarely deviates, and if he focuses on this, and on his mundane job at a Japanese electronics office, he can just about avoid confronting the unbearable loneliness of his life. But, three nights a week, Sam leaves his small insignificant life behind, dons his carefully constructed superhero costume, and patrols the streets of his community - preventing crime, protecting the vulnerable, an acting as a power for good. When Sam is wearing his superhero costume, he feels invincible. But his superhero activities are getting him into some sticky, and increasingly dangerous situations. And when a girl comes into his life - a beautiful, perfect girl who actually thinks he is worth talking to - it throws his careful routines into chaos. Sam needs to decide whether he can be brave enough to take a chance on love. And believing that something good can come after all the pain. This is a heart-breaking story about grief, loss and loneliness. But it's also a heart-warming story about love, and the great power of kindness.
February 24th, 1991: It's the first day of the ground war in Operation Desert Storm. To support the massive attack, an eight man US Army Special Forces team is inserted 150 miles inside Iraq to covertly reconnoiter a key highway connecting Baghdad and Kuwait. The members of the team--designated Operational Detachment Alpha-525 -are known among their peers as The Sharkmen. This is their first combat mission in Desert Storm. If this had been a perfect mission no one would have known they were there. They would have dropped in, done their job for a week, then exited under cover and returned to base. But this isn't a perfect mission. Within hours it will all go to hell. This is the true story of the improbable rescue of ODA-525, told in the words of the men who were there, on the ground and in the air.
Ask any GI who served in the Pacific during World War Two if he climbed the stairs on Hotel Street in downtown Honolulu, Hawaii, and if he says Yes the feller has a story to tell you. Hotel Street was the military's best kept open secret and probably helped win the war. At least Harry thought so. That would be Hotel Street Harry, the newspaper byline of an anonymous U.S. Army reporter who felt it his solemn and sacred duty to investigate and inform the ranks of soldiers, sailors, marines and coast guarders of the goings-on and what-have-yous happening in the GI carnival, as Harry advisedly described it, that was wartime Hotel Street. Compiled into one volume for the first time, the complete works of Hotel Street Harry, March 1, 1943 to May 12, 1945.
