Grand Central Publishing (July 2017)

Teenager Jane Norton is behind the wheel when her car crashes off a lonely road, killing her friend David and leaving Jane with amnesia. She remembers nothing of the days leading up to the crash—or why David wrote her a note, begging her to help him. Two years later, a still-broken Jane—abandoned by friends and family, blamed for David’s death—receives an anonymous message: I know what really happened. I know what you don't remember. David’s grieving mother, Perri, tries to keep Jane from bringing up the past. Meanwhile, someone is destroying the lives of those connected to the accident: the paramedics, the lawyers, the witnesses. What happened on that fateful night—and what does Jane truly remember? Jane and Perri must join forces to unearth the truth . . . before a killer takes more than memories.

WHISKEY & RIBBONS
Cross-Smith, Leesa
General fiction
ms 293 pp
Hub City Press (Spring 2018)

Monday, July 11th. The sky is pink. The Kentucky summer air, humid. Police officer Eamon Royce kisses his wife goodbye in their living room, then kneels and kisses her stomach. Their son is due in less than three weeks. Evi tells Eamon that she loves him. She tells him to be safe.

If anyone had told Evi that morning that just six months later she’d be in that same room, straddling Eamon’s best friend and adopted brother on a piano bench as a blizzard roared outside and whiskey roared in their veins—she would have been speechless. She would have shaken her head, laughed, maybe, said that they must be confusing her for Dalton’s on-again, off-again lover Frances.

But Evi would have had no way of knowing, that morning, that the key of her life was about to drastically change—and that in the aftermath of the events that would begin to unfold that day, Dalton, suddenly, would become the only part of her life that made sense.

Told from Evi, Dalton, and Eamon’s alternating perspectives, WHISKEY & RIBBONS takes us to the beginning, to the day Evi and Eamon first meet. To the smile on Eamon’s face when he tells Dalton that this is the woman he is going to marry—and to the fear in his heart when he realizes that marrying Evi, that starting a family with Evi, might mean an end to the only career he’s ever known. To Dalton, struggling to make sense of his life next to Eamon’s, to his decision to track down the biological father he’s never known. And to the reveal of colossal, kaleidoscopic secrets, secrets that shift Evi, Dalton and Eamon’s relationships with each other completely.

In the vein of Jojo Moyes’ After You, WHISKEY & RIBBONS explores the life that continues beyond loss, with a complicated and yet vital brotherly dynamic reminiscent of Elizabeth Strout’s The Burgess Boys. It’s a meditation on grief, hope, motherhood, brotherhood, and surrogate fatherhood, and a requiem for marriage, friendship, and family. Above all, it’s a novel about what it means—and whether it’s possible—to heal.

Leesa Cross-Smith is the author of the collection Every Kiss a War (Mojave River Press, 2014), which was a finalist for both the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction and the Iowa Short Fiction Award.

A breathtaking historical novel that recreates the intimate milieu around Germany's Kaiser Wilhelm from 1907 through the 1930s, a period of great human suffering and destruction and also of enormous freedom and creativity, a time when the remnants and artifices of the old word still mattered, and yet when art and the social sciences were pirouetting with successive revolutions in thought and style.

Set in a time when many men in the upper classes in Europe were gay, but could not be so publicly, Jews Queers Germans revolves around three men: Prince Philipp von Eulenburg, Kaiser Wilhelm II's closest friend, who becomes the subject of a notorious 1907 trial for homosexuality; Magnus Hirschfeld, a famed, Jewish sexologist who gives testimony at the trial; and Count Harry Kessler, a leading proponent of modernism, and the keeper of a famous set of diaries which lay out in intimate detail the major social, artistic and political events of the day and allude as well to his own homosexuality. The central theme here is the gay life of a very upper crust intellectual milieu that had a real impact on the major political upheavals that would shape the modern world forever after.

THE WEIGHT OF INK
Kadish, Rachel
Historical fiction
204.000 words
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (June 2017)

An intellectual and emotional jigsaw puzzle of a novel for readers of A. S. Byatt’s Possession and Geraldine Brooks’s People of the Book

Set in London of the 1660s and of the early twenty-first century, THE WEIGHT OF INK is the interwoven tale of two women of remarkable intellect: Ester Velasquez, an emigrant from Amsterdam who is permitted to scribe for a blind rabbi, just before the plague hits the city; and Helen Watt, an ailing historian with a love of Jewish history.

As the novel opens, Helen has been summoned by a former student to view a cache of seventeenth-century Jewish documents newly discovered in his home during a renovation. Enlisting the help of Aaron Levy, an American graduate student as impatient as he is charming, and in a race with another fast-moving team of historians, Helen embarks on one last project: to determine the identity of the documents’ scribe, the elusive “Aleph.”

Electrifying and ambitious, sweeping in scope and intimate in tone, THE WEIGHT OF INK is a sophisticated work of historical fiction about women separated by centuries, and the choices and sacrifices they must make in order to reconcile the life of the heart and mind.

Rachel Kadish is the author, most recently, of the novel Tolstoy Lied: A Love Story. Among her many honors are a Koret Award, a Pushcart Prize, and citations in the 1997 and 2003 editions of The Best American Short Stories.

In the third in the “richly detailed and diverse” (io9) urban fantasy series, the time has come for the dead to rise up against the shady powers-that-be...

Trouble is brewing between the Council of the Dead and the ghostly, half-dead, spiritual, and supernatural community they claim to represent.

Carlos Delacruz is used to being caught in the middle of things: both as an inbetweener, trapped somewhere between life and death, and as a double agent for the Council.

SCHOOL OF VELOCITY
Rubin, Eric Beck
General fiction
197 pp
Doubleday Canada (August 2016)

A wrenching and deceptively spare debut novel about an electric friendship between two boys that slowly reveals itself as a deep and lifelong love.

Jan de Vries is a virtuoso pianist who would be in the prime of his career but for the crippling auditory hallucinations that have plundered his performances and his mind. As the disorder reaches its devastating peak the walls Jan has built around him crumble, rendering him unable to repress the overwhelming flood of memories and the troves of unspoken words that linger between him and his childhood best friend, Dirk Noosen, with whom he lost touch long ago. He is faced with only one recourse: to head home and confront him. With a singular voice and a masterful balance of emotional resonance and restraint, Eric Beck Rubin tells the tender story of Jan's obsessive friendship with the charismatic, irreverent raconteur Dirk as the reader breathlessly awaits their reunion.

This luminous novel is about music, repression and regret; about adolescence, sex and friendship, and, ultimately, about the kind of love that lasts a lifetime.

Eric Beck Rubin is a cultural historian who writes on architecture, literature and psychology. School of Velocity is his first foray into fiction. He is currently at work on a second: a family saga spanning several generations, from pre-World War II Germany to present-day Los Angeles and Western Canada.

Under the guise of their long acquaintance Mueller is recruited to vet rumors that Graham is putting weapons, covertly provided by the CIA to Batista, into the hands of Castro’s forces. Public exposure of the CIA weapons mission, and the activity of one rogue agent, threaten to embarrass the agency.

Mueller uncovers a world of deceit as the FBI, CIA, and State Department compete to influence the outcome of the revolution in the face of the brutal dictatorship’s imminent collapse.
