The Windows of Heaven is a multi-volume epic of the world's cataclysmic death and rebirth in an age only legend, myth, ancient scriptures and "out-of-place" fossils recall. A Broken Paradise drops us into the stormy life of Tiva; an abused girl in the house of the Seer Clan's most respected Dragon-slayer. Distant wars rage, and their Prince A'Nu-Ahki-prophesier of the future cataclysm-is reported dead. Tiva's father seizes control of the Clan, while the outside world pushes into their tribe's secluded valley in swarms of lawless migrants, war deserters, and seething zealots. Abuse at home crushes Tiva's spirit, while the remaining Seer Clan elders bicker over what form the End will take. None of them realize they have even more immediate problems. Dark conspirators in high places will soon make the Valley of Seers the nexus of a global power struggle between men and gods, while a dark force is taking shape among the youth. As she matures, Tiva begins to embrace the unthinkable. Where can she turn when all hell breaks loose, if even the "good guys" are unreliable and ancient social institutions fall to mad ideologies that deny even the most basic realities of human existence?

THE ALLIANCE Second installment to the A Broken Paradise Series. “Oh my god!” “WENI!” “WENI!, open your eyes!” “What happened?” “CUALLI!” “What's happened to Weni, Cualli?.” Sheriton asked, tears already welling up in her eyes. “I know this is a little hard to understand right now.” I began again, “I know right now you're all just thinking about the fact that she's gone, but there is still hope, there is still hope that this can work.” “THAT IS NOT WENI!!” Sheriton screamed at me. “What happens if people find out? What if Damson finds out.” Tess blurted out. “The Alliance will fall apart?” Perri mumbles under his breath. Galina wiped her tears. “Awen is still in there, that body is still hers.” “How can you trust her?” Tess asked. “I don't think it's a case of trust right now....” Ceri said as he got to his feet and walked to Galina and Sheriton. “She's keeping my sister alive.”

In Paradise tells the story of a group of men and women who come together for a weeklong meditation retreat at the site of a World War II concentration camp, and the grief, rage and upsetting revelations that surface during their time together. Even as it probes the suffering, conflicts, and longings of these diverse characters, In Paradise raises provocative and unanswerable metaphysical questions: what responsibility comes with bearing witness to such cruelty and tragedy; and what insights into the nature of good and evil may be lost in the next decade or two, as the last survivors of – and witnesses to – the death camps pass away. Having participated in three Zen retreats at Auschwitz beginning in the 1990s, Matthiessen had long wished to comment on the ongoing fallout of last century's global catastrophe, but ‘as a non-Jewish American journalist, I felt unqualified to do so, I felt I had no right. But approaching it as fiction – as a novelist, an artist – I eventually decided that I did. Only fiction would allow me to probe from a variety of viewpoints the great strangeness of what I had felt.’

From the acclaimed bestselling author of Philistines at the Hedgerow comes a remarkably revealing profile of the Miami Beach no one knows–a tale of fabulous excess, thwarted power, and rekindled lives that will take its place among the decade’s best works of social portraiture. Created from a mix of swampland and dredged-up barrier reef, Miami Beach has always been one part drifter-mecca and one part fantasyland, simultaneously a catch basin for con men, fast-talk artists, and shameless self-promoters, and a Shangri-La for sun worshippers and hardcore hedonists. In Miami Beach it’s often said that "if you’re not indicted you’re not invited." But the city’s mad, fascinating complexity resists easy stereotyping. Fool’s Paradise is more than just a present-day profile of a dark Eden. Gaines journeys back into the city’s social and cultural history, unearthing stories of the resort’s past that are every bit as absorbing–and jaw-dropping–as those of its present. The book begins with a snapshot of the city’s current excess (this is, after all, a sun-washed hamlet that boasts, on a per capita basis, more bars–and breast implants–than any other place in America), then plunges into the Beach’s origins, chronicling the audacious rise of such hoteliers as the Fontainebleau’s Ben Novack and the Eden Roc’s Harry Mufson, the sharp-elbowed tactics of Al Capone and Frank Sinatra, and the Mac-10 shooting sprees of the Marielito and Colombian drug lords. From there, the narrative shifts to two wildly eccentric souls who gave their lives to preserving the city’s architectural dazzle and creating its color palette, introduces us to "the Most Powerful Man in Miami Beach," and arrives finally in the modern day, where we meet, among others, a kinky German playboy who once owned a quarter of South Beach and publicly flaunts his sexual escapades; a fabulously successful nightclub promoter whose addictive past seems to have given him a portal into the night world’s id; and a gaggle of young sexy models, dreamers, and schemers on a mission to achieve significance. Evoking the Beach’s surreal blend of flashy Vegas and old Hollywood glamour, as well as its manic desperation and reckless wealth, Gaines persuasively demonstrates that though the Beach is–in the words of its most famous drag queen–"an island of broken toys . . . a place where people get away with things they’d never get away with anyplace else," it casts an irresistible spell. From the Hardcover edition.

With the compound overrun and survivors separated following the events at the courthouse, the story continues south to investigate the only clues to civilization. Limits are tested, and the line between good and evil fades, as it quickly becomes apparent that the world has spiraled further into chaos. The harsh cold of winter, an egomaniac with a prison arena, and a higher body count aren't the only things that await survivors, though, because a new threat on the horizon and the brutality of the new world begs two questions: Who are the real monsters, and will anyone live to see the shattered paradise?

The Great Gatsby meets Looking for Alaska in this stunning debut from Chelsey Philpot. With inspiration drawn from Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited, this novel perfectly captures the love and heartbreak that can change us most. When Julia Buchanan enrolls at St. Anne’s at the beginning of junior year, Charlotte Ryder already knows all about her. Most people do . . . or think they do. But as Charlotte is pulled into the larger-than-life new girl’s world—a world of midnight rendezvous, dazzling parties, palatial vacation homes, and fizzy champagne cocktails—she realizes that behind Julia’s self-assured smiles and toasts to the future, she is still suffering from a tragedy. A tragedy that the Buchanan family has kept hidden . . . until now.

When Eric Toensmeier and Jonathan Bates moved into a duplex in a run-down part of Holyoke, Massachusetts, the tenth-of-an-acre lot was barren ground and bad soil, peppered with broken pieces of concrete, asphalt, and brick. The two friends got to work designing what would become not just another urban farm, but a "permaculture paradise" replete with perennial broccoli, paw paws, bananas, and moringa—all told, more than two hundred low-maintenance edible plants in an innovative food forest on a small city lot. The garden—intended to function like a natural ecosystem with the plants themselves providing most of the garden's needs for fertility, pest control, and weed suppression—also features an edible water garden, a year-round unheated greenhouse, tropical crops, urban poultry, and even silkworms. In telling the story of Paradise Lot, Toensmeier explains the principles and practices of permaculture, the choice of exotic and unusual food plants, the techniques of design and cultivation, and, of course, the adventures, mistakes, and do-overs in the process. Packed full of detailed, useful information about designing a highly productive permaculture garden, Paradise Lot is also a funny and charming story of two single guys, both plant nerds, with a wild plan: to realize the garden of their dreams and meet women to share it with. Amazingly, on both counts, they succeed.
