The Narrow Road to the Deep North The Narrow Road to the Deep North
by Richard Flanagan

"Captivating . . .This is a classic work of war fiction from a world-class writer. . .Nothing since Cormac McCarthy’s The Road has shaken me like this." —Ron Charles, Washington Post

It is August, 1943, and Australian surgeon Dorrigo Evans is haunted by his affair with his uncle’s young wife two years earlier. His life, in a brutal Japanese POW camp on the Thai-Burma Death Railway, is a daily struggle to save the men under his command. Until he receives a letter that will change him forever.

The Peripheral The Peripheral
by William Gibson

"To read Gibson is to read the present as if it were the future." —The New York Times

Burton, who has veteran's benefits for neural damage he suffered from implants during his time in the USMC's elite Haptic Recon force, has a job he's supposed to do—a job his sister Flynne didn’t know he had. He tells her he is beta-testing part of a new game. The job seems simple: work a perimeter around the image of a tower building. When little bug-like things turn up, he's supposed to block them and edge them back. He offers Flynne a good price to take over for him. But what she sees isn't what Burton told her to expect. It might be a game, but it might also be murder.

The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light The Universal Tone: Bringing My Story to Light
by Carlos Santana

This is the intimate and long-awaited autobiography of a musical legend. The Universal Tone traces Carlos Santana's journey from his earliest days playing the strip bars in Tijuana while barely in his teens and brings to light the establishment of his signature guitar sound; his roles as husband, father, recording legend, and rock guitar star; his indebtedness to musical and spiritual influences - from John Coltrane and John Lee Hooker to Miles Davis and Harry Belafonte; and his lifelong dedication to a spiritual path that he developed from his Catholic upbringing, Eastern philosophies, and other mystical sources.

Some Luck Some Luck
by Jane Smiley

An autographed copy of Jane Smiley's engrossing new novel would make a great gift for fiction lovers.

On their Iowa farm, Rosanna and Walter Langdon abide by time-honored values that they pass on to their five wildly different children. As the Langdons branch out from Iowa to both coasts of America, the personal and the historical merge seamlessly. This is the first of an epic trilogy that spans a century.
