Book Description :

From the bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus comes a novel about a struggling writer who gets his big break, with a little help from the most famous woman in America. After years of trying to make it as a writer in 1990s New York City, James Smale finally sells his novel to an editor at a major publishing house: none other than Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Jackie--or Mrs. Onassis, as she's known in the office--has fallen in love with James's candidly autobiographical novel, one that exposes his own dysfunctional family. But when the book's forthcoming publication threatens to unravel already fragile relationships, both within his family and with his partner, James finds that he can't bring himself to finish the manuscript. Jackie and James develop an unexpected friendship, and she pushes him to write an authentic ending, encouraging him to head home to confront the truth about his relationship with his mother. Then a long-held family secret is revealed, and he realizes his editor may have had a larger plan that goes beyond the page... From the bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus comes a funny, poignant, and highly original novel about an author whose relationship with his very famous book editor will change him forever--both as a writer and a son.

Book Description :

From the bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus and The Editor comes a warm and deeply funny novel about a once-famous gay sitcom star whose unexpected family tragedy leaves him with his niece and nephew for the summer. Patrick, or Gay Uncle Patrick (GUP, for short), has always loved his niece, Maisie, and nephew, Grant. That is, he loves spending time with them when they come out to Palm Springs for weeklong visits, or when he heads home to Connecticut for the holidays. But in terms of caretaking and relating to two children, no matter how adorable, Patrick is, honestly, overwhelmed. So when tragedy strikes and Maisie and Grant lose their mother and Patrick's brother has a health crisis of his own, Patrick finds himself suddenly taking on the role of primary guardian. Despite having a set of "Guncle Rules" ready to go, Patrick has no idea what to expect, having spent years barely holding on after the loss of his great love, a somewhat-stalled acting career, and a lifestyle not-so-suited to a six- and a nine-year-old. Quickly realizing that parenting--even if temporary--isn't solved with treats and jokes, Patrick's eyes are opened to a new sense of responsibility, and the realization that, sometimes, even being larger than life means you're unfailingly human. With the humor and heart we've come to expect from bestselling author Steven Rowley, The Guncle is a moving tribute to the power of love, patience, and family in even the most trying of times.

Book Description :

EVERYONE HAS AWE INSPIRING CREATIVITY to give the world, including you. Dolores Del Leon didn't believe she had anything to give anyone. A down-on-her-luck artist, Dolores suffers from scarcity thinking that keeps her creativity buried and her bank account dwindling. Insecurity holds her back from her long-held dream to write a novel. One day, everything changes. Dolores meets a mysterious, wise woman in a pink sari on her walking trail who says, "Hi, I'm Maya-your soul. I'm here to blow your mind." With Maya's help, Dolores lands a highly creative, six-figure job in San Francisco. As Dolores sees the truth of the limiting stories of her past: her mother's violent discipline and growing up in the shadow of her father's devastating depression from PTSD, she harnesses an untapped creative power within. Maya reimagines Dolores' life into the fearless and amazing expression it's meant to be, complete with miracles-and she can do the same for you. CALLING DOLORES is a story about creation. Dolores becomes a powerful creator in this world when she adores her dark side and cherishes her wild child imagination-even when it's terrifying. This is one magical realism journey you won't want to miss. Books like CALLING DOLORES: Similar to THE ALCHEMIST, by Paolo Coelho, a wise guide helps Dolores realize her true self by following the call of her heart. Vivid descriptions about spiritual growth and creative process are found in CALLING DOLORES-as in MEN, MONEY AND CHOCOLATE, by Menna Van Praag. Like, FAITHFUL, by Alice Hoffman, CALLING DOLORES captures the desire to save the world despite great losses. CALLING DOLORES has the emotional depth of LILY AND THE OCTOPUS, by Steven Rowley. If you enjoy meditation, spiritual symbols and talismans to invoke magic as in THE MAGIC MALA, by Bob Olsen, you'll enjoy CALLING DOLORES.

'An exceptional work . . . A brilliant and necessary book' Douglas Stuart, author of the Booker Prize-winning SHUGGIE BAIN 'Funny. Disturbing. Brilliant' Lily Allen 'THE OCTOPUS MAN reminds us that behind the words "mental health" lies a universe of WILD CREATIVITY, HUMANITY and SPANKING BIG LIFE. Now is the time for this book.' DBC Pierre, author of the Booker Prize-winning VERNON GOD LITTLE Once an outstanding law student Tom is now lost in the machinery of the British mental health system, talking to a voice no one else can hear: the voice of Malamock, the Octopus God - sometimes loving, sometimes cruel, but always there to guide him through life. After a florid psychotic break, the pressure builds for Tom to take part in an experimental drugs trial that promises to silence the voice forever. But no one, least of all Tom, is prepared for what happens when the Octopus God is seriously threatened. Deeply moving and tragi-comic, THE OCTOPUS MAN takes us into the complex world of voice-hearing in a bravura literary performance that asks the fundamental questions about belief, meaning, and love.

Book Description :

A triumphant story about love, loss and finding hope--against all odds "We looked down at the cliff jutting into the sea, a rubber boat full of kids going under the arch, and then you started running and jumping through the grass, dodging the rabbit holes, shouting at the top of your voice, so I started chasing you, trying to catch you, and we were laughing so hard as we ran and ran, kicking up rainbow showers in the leaves." Rob Coates feels like he's won the lottery of life. There is Anna, his incredible wife, their London town house and, most precious of all, Jack, their son, who makes every day an extraordinary adventure. But when a devastating illness befalls his family, Rob's world begins to unravel. Suddenly finding himself alone, Rob seeks solace in photographing the skyscrapers and clifftops he and his son Jack used to visit. And just when it seems that all hope is lost, Rob embarks on the most unforgettable of journeys to find his way back to life, and forgiveness. We Own the Sky is a tender, heartrending, but ultimately life-affirming novel that will resonate deeply with anyone who has suffered loss or experienced great love. With stunning eloquence and acumen, Luke Allnutt has penned a soaring debut and a true testament to the power of love, showing how even the most thoroughly broken heart can learn to beat again. "A breathtaking read that describes perfectly the joy and pain that comes with loving fully and all the compassion and forgiveness it requires. Brimming with hope to the very end." --Steven Rowley, Lily and the Octopus "Anyone who wishes David Nicholls would write faster needs to grab this with both hands. It's a truly stunning achievement." --Jill Mansell, Meet Me at Beachcomber Bay
