Book Excerpt :

Arthur Nersesian's underground literary treasure is an unforgettable slice of gritty New York City life. This is the darkly hilarious odyssey of an anonymous slacker. He's a perennial couch-surfer, an aspiring writer searching for himself in spite of himself, and he's just trying to survive. But life has other things in store for the fuck-up. From being dumped by his girlfriend to getting fired for asking for a raise, from falling into a robbery to posing as a gay man to keep his job at a porno theater, the fuck-up's tragi-comedy is perfectly realized by Arthur Nersesian, who manages to create humor and suspense out of urban desperation. "Read it and howl," says Bruce Benderson (author of User), "and be glad it didn't happen to you."

Book Short Summary:

A novel of a young man’s adventures in New York City by an author who is “part Lewis Carroll, part Franz Kafka” (Library Journal). This tale introduces us to Joey, a New York City graduate student. Brought up by emotionally—and physically—distant adoptive parents, he has no idea what his heritage really is, though he did decide to try being Jewish after being dragged into a mitzvah tank by a Hasid. Now he has worked his way through most of a graduate history program at Columbia University—but when his academic fellowship from a mysterious benefactor is suddenly rescinded, he will be led into a furious and bizarre quest—in a novel from an acclaimed author praised for his ability to blend dark, fantastic satire with genuine human feeling. “Paranoid fantasy and fantastic comedy in the service of social realism . . . At its best, [Manhattan Loverboy] assays the grittiest, funkiest urban-magic-realism yet, creating a satirical fiction avidly in search of the truth it’s all too aware is even stranger than itself.” —Downtown “Nersesian renders Gotham’s unique cocktail of wealth, poverty, crime, glamour, and brutality spectacularly . . . But in the end, it is Joey’s search for his own identity that makes this book a winner.” —Rain Taxi Review of Books on East Village Tetralogy

Book Short Summary:

“The F*ck It Diet is not only hilarious, it is scientifically and medically sound. A must read for any chronic dieter.” –Christiane Northrup, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom” From humorist and ex-diet junkie Caroline Dooner, an inspirational guide that will help you stop dieting, reboot your relationship with food, and regain your personal power DIETING DOESN’T WORK Not long term. In fact, our bodies are hardwired against it. But each time our diets fail, instead of considering that maybe our ridiculously low-carb diet is the problem, we wonder what’s wrong with us. Why can’t we stick to our simple plan of grapefruit and tuna fish??? Why are we so hungry? What is wrong with us??? We berate ourselves for being lazy and weak, double down on our belief that losing weight is the key to our everlasting happiness, and resolve to do better tomorrow. But it’s time we called a spade a spade: Constantly trying to eat the smallest amount possible is a miserable way to live, and it isn’t even working. So fuck eating like that. In The F*ck It Diet, Caroline Dooner tackles the inherent flaws of dieting and diet culture, and offers readers a counterintuitively simple path to healing their physical, emotional, and mental relationship with food. What’s the secret anti-diet? Eat. Whatever you want. Honor your appetite and listen to your hunger. Trust that your body knows what it is doing. Oh, and don’t forget to rest, breathe, and be kind to yourself while you’re at it. Once you get yourself out of survival mode, it will become easier and easier to eat what your body really needs—a healthier relationship with food ultimately leads to a healthier you. An ex-yo-yo dieter herself, Dooner knows how terrifying it can be to break free of the vicious cycle, but with her signature sharp humor and compassion, she shows readers that a sustainable, easy relationship with food is possible. Irreverent and empowering, The F*ck It Diet is call to arms for anyone who feels guilt or pain over food, weight, or their body. It’s time to give up the shame and start thriving. Welcome to the F*ck It Diet. Let’s Eat.

Book Short Summary:

The basis for the hit TV series Gangland Undercover! The gripping account from an ex-con who went undercover to help the ATF infiltrate three of America's most violent biker gangs Despite lacking any experience with motorcycle gangs, Charles Falco infiltrated three of America's deadliest biker gangs: the Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws. In separate investigations that spanned years and coasts, Falco risked his life, suffering a fractured neck and a severely torn shoulder, working deep under cover to bring violent sociopaths to justice. His dedication was profound; Falco spent almost three years infiltrating the Vagos gang and rose to second in command of the Victorville, California chapter. He even served time in San Bernardino's Murder Unit and endured solitary confinement to protect his cover and the investigations. Falco recorded confessions of gangland-style killings and nearly became a target himself before he sought refuge in the Witness Protection Program. But discontent to remain on the sidelines and motivated by a strong sense of duty, Falco eventually left the Program and volunteer his talents again to infiltrate the Mongols and Outlaws, rising in rank to Vice President of the Petersburg, Virginia Outlaws chapter. His efforts culminated in sixty two arrests of members for various crimes, including assault and murder. Executing one of this country's most successful RICO prosecutions and effectively crippling the criminal enterprise, Falco's engrossing narrative of the dangers of the biker underworld harkens back to Hunter S. Thompson's classic Hell's Angels, vividly recounting a life undercover.

Book Short Summary:

". . . a chilling and astonishing novel by authors who know their way around a story." ~Peggy Webb, USA Today bestselling author Freshly Minted Child Psychiatrist Endures the Lost Minds, Lives and Loves of the Vietnam War in UNBREAKABLE, a Tale of Terror, Humanity and Survival by Hart Rivers -- Nha Trang, Vietnam, 1969 -- Innocence is often the first casualty of war. Such is the case for Dr. Israel (Izzy) Moskowitz, drafted from his residency at Columbia University to the 99KO, the Army’s frontline psychiatric unit of the 8th Field Hospital. Having left his fiancée in New York, Izzy, along with his new friend, Dr. Gregg Kelly, is ill-prepared for the death and carnage of the horrific war that greets him. J.D. Mikel arrives at the 99KO, presumably as another "shrink" but it's quickly apparent that he's really a "spook"--the CIA's most devious spy/assassin--undercover in search of a so-called Ghost Soldier responsible for the gruesome murders of U.S. troops. He recruits the reluctant Izzy and Gregg as his assistants for their psychological expertise since there could be a military personnel nut job on the loose. Izzy--already questioning his own sanity after witnessing multiple traumatic events--realizes he must quickly find a stronger, craftier, more resilient version of himself. Along the Mekong River, amidst soldiers losing their minds, mortar attacks, death and the heat of hell's fire, Izzy, Gregg and J.D. discover the true depth of friendship in a shared quest to become UNBREAKABLE. Publisher's Note: Readers should be prepared for death and graphic violence consistent with the true nature of the Vietnam war.

After she gives birth to her second child by the age of eighteen, she feels like her dreams are out of reach. Her growing jealousy isn't easy to hide. What will happen when her misery wants company?

Book Short Summary:

His Savage was Her Weakness 2 picks up with Nubia fighting for her life after Vincent desperately tries to regain control over her. Broken, bruised, and tired of the abuse, Nubia makes a conscious decision to choose herself over Vincent. Part of this choice means leaving behind the security he once provided and paving her own way. She knows the path won’t be easy, but after receiving life-changing news, Nubia has to do whatever it takes to be successful in her future endeavors, even if it means stepping into the very game that claimed her parents’ lives. No matter how many lows and highs she experiences, there's always one consistent person in her life: Maine, who saves her even when she doesn’t want to save herself. With his status on the streets upgraded and his eyes on being the next distributor of New York City, Maine finds little time to spend protecting a troubled Nubia, but does what he can. His player ways have caught up with him, forcing him into a relationship with the spoiled Estalita. While the pairing to the pampered princess might not be part of his dreams, the keys to the kingdom that she holds make the relationship worth it. No matter how much pressure being the new face of the Solares Cartel holds, Maine still finds time to entertain his hoes. Like the unlimited supply of money and pushing the toughest whips, the women in his life fill a void. That is until Nubia comes hurtling back into his life as abruptly as she left. He's ready to act on his feelings when he discovers that one of the most memorable nights of his life is overshadowed by one of the worst days of Nubia's. With Sampson in possession of her heart while Donovan still maintains her loyalty, Shahani struggles to balance the new man in her life that wants to give her the world, while still holding down the one that saved her from pole. Shahani runs to Donovan when faced with ugly truths from Sampson and finds solace in Sampson's arms when Donovan's heartless ways wear her thin. As she battles with her choice, the decision is finally made for her with catastrophic consequences: bonds are broken, the truth had done more damage than even the sweetest lies, and now Shahani must pick up the pieces of her life and build it back up by herself. Success is eventually achieved for Shahani, but it comes with a cost: making the same mistakes, just with a new face. As friends become enemies, two star-crossed lovers become one, and snakes lie in wait for the perfect moment to strike, Nubia has to ask herself if she's ready to face her monster of a husband, Shahani has to decide between her dreams and her sanity, and Maine? He has to figure out how to protect Nubia from the same streets he's pledged his loyalty to.

Book Short Summary:

Seven European Cup finals. Seven fans. Seven amazing adventures following the team they love. This book celebrates the achievements of Liverpool FC in Europe, and in particular a love affair with Old Big Ears - the European Cup. It's an ongoing affair that began with the legendary and, in those days, unprecedented exodus of 30,000 Liverpool fans to Rome in 1977, has taken in the glories of Paris and Istanbul, endured the horror of Brussels, and still burns as brightly today with Athens 2007, just the latest staging post of Liverpool's trans-European express. Above all, Here We Go Gathering Cups In May tells of the bond between a club and its fans: the lengths those fans will go to in order to be there at the final to cheer on their team, vivid accounts of what happened along the way, their escapades in some of Europe’s iconic capitals, and their recollections of those historic nights – nights of glory and, sometimes, nights of tragedy.
