Lone Women: A Novel By Victor LaValle Cover Image
$18.00
ISBN: 9780525512103
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: One World - February 6th, 2024

"So, what is in the trunk Adelaide? It is the early 1900s, central California and Adelaide Henry has just set her family farm ablaze leaving her parents’ bodies to burn up in the flames. On the run, she drags along a heavy steamer trunk filled with something much more potent than family secrets. She heads to Montana where word has it that single women of a certain age can homestead and lay claim to their own land.  Victor LaValle deftly weaves elements of horror and mystery into a work of historical fiction something like Willa Cather crossed with Stephen King. Readers of his previous book, the much-lauded, The Changeling (check out the recently released Apple + series, it’s excellent) will not be disappointed—fun, scary, and smart."

Soil: The Story of a Black Mother's Garden By Camille T. Dungy Cover Image
$20.29
ISBN: 9781982195304
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Simon & Schuster - May 2nd, 2023

"Soil is Dungey’s multilayered narrative of cultivating her Colorado garden. Both implicitly and explicitly political, it is an impassioned and galvanizing blend of nature writing, memoir, social criticism and environmental justice, all synthesized through the sensibility of a gifted poet. Much as I imagine the author’s garden to be, Soil is beautiful and nourishing. I especially enjoyed listening to Dungey’s audio version. Soil is truly a work of art."
