My Name Is Nathan Lucius

My Name Is Nathan Lucius
Winkler, Mark

"Nathan Lucius, 31, is an ad salesman at a local Cape Town newspaper. Disaffected, hard-drinking and plagued by nightmares, Nathan cares not at all about the world around him. He lives alone with only one true friend, a woman named Madge. But Madge is dying slowly of cancer, and when she asks Nathan to end her pain, she sets off a shocking string of events that will bring Nathan's world crashing down around him. A modern-day answer to Crime and Punishment, My Name Is Nathan Lucius is a shocking, taut, and unforgiving exploration of the intersection of violence, trauma, social responsibility, and memory. South African author Mark Winkler's North American debut is stylish, intense, and unforgettable, a glittering noir gem that will appeal to readers of Irvine Welsh and Chuck Palahniuk as well as fans of Thomas Harris and Dennis Lehane"--Provided by publisher.

The Infinite Future

The Infinite Future
Wirkus, Tim, 1983-

"An exhilarating, original novel, set in Brazil, Idaho, and outer space, about an obsessive librarian, a down-at-heel author, and a Mormon historian who go on the hunt for a mystical, life-changing book--and find it. The Infinite Future is a mindbending novel that melds two page-turning books in one. First, we meet three broken people, joined by an obsession with a forgotten Brazilian science-fiction author named Eduard Salgado-MacKenzie. There's Danny, a writer who's been scammed by a shady literary award committee; Sergio, journalist turned sub-librarian in Sãu Paulo; and Harriet, an excommunicated Mormon historian in Salt Lake City, who years ago conducted a correspondence with the reclusive Brazilian writer. The motley trio sets off to discover his identity, and whether his fabled masterpiece--never published--actually exists. Did his investigations into the true nature of the universe yield something so enormous that his mind was blown for good? In the second half, Wirkus gives us ... the lost masterpiece itself, the actual text of The Infinite Future, Salgado-MacKenzie's wonderfully weird magnum opus. The two halves connect in surprising and delightful ways to form a totally unique reading experience. Part academic satire, part science-fiction, and part book-lover's quest, this wholly original novel captures the heady way that stories inform and mirror our lives"--Provided by publisher.

The small town's corrupt building inspector is found dead on one of Shannon's jobsites, and soon plenty of suspects are coming out of the woodwork.

The Friend

The Friend
Nunez, Sigrid

A moving story of love, friendship, grief, healing, and the magical bond between a woman and her dog. When a woman unexpectedly loses her lifelong best friend and mentor, she finds herself burdened with the unwanted dog he has left behind. Her own battle against grief is intensified by the mute suffering of the dog, a huge Great Dane traumatized by the inexplicable disappearance of its master, and by the threat of eviction: dogs are prohibited in her apartment building. While others worry that grief has made her a victim of magical thinking, the woman refuses to be separated from the dog except for brief periods of time. Isolated from the rest of the world, increasingly obsessed with the dog's care, determined to read its mind and fathom its heart, she comes dangerously close to unraveling. But while troubles abound, rich and surprising rewards lie in store for both of them. Elegiac and searching, The Friend is both a meditation on loss and a celebration of human-canine devotion.
