An award-winning writer delivers a poignant and provocative novel of identity, race and the search for belonging in the age of globalization. One afternoon, not long after Kelly Thorndike has moved back to his hometown of Baltimore, an African American man he doesn’t recognize calls out to him. To Kelly’s shock, the man identifies himself as Martin, who was one of Kelly’s closest friends in high school—and, before his disappearance nearly twenty years before, skinny, white, and Jewish. Martin then tells an astonishing story: After years of immersing himself in black culture, he’s had a plastic surgeon perform “racial reassignment surgery”—altering his hair, skin, and physiognomy to allow him to pass as African American. Unknown to his family or childhood friends, Martin has been living a new life ever since. Now, however, Martin feels he can no longer keep his new identity a secret; he wants Kelly to help him ignite a controversy that will help sell racial reassignment surgery to the world. Kelly, still recovering from the death of his wife and child and looking for a way to begin anew, agrees, and things quickly begin to spiral out of control. Inventive and thought-provoking, Your Face in Mine is a brilliant novel about cultural and racial alienation and the nature of belonging in a world where identity can be a stigma or a lucrative brand.

Dan Shaper, bachelor, translator for the San Francisco courts, is a man who has worn the same raincoat for fifteen years, eats the same breakfast in the same coffeeshop every morning, occasionally sees a few long-time men friends and vaguely regrets a handful of former women lovers. In the sixties and seventies, Shaper was where the action was, (San Francisco, where else?) and joined in the festivities, if moderately. But that was a long time ago. There are those who have drug flashbacks, even years after they've been using. Shaper has escaped those, thanks to his moderation. But into his relatively Spartan life now comes a flashback of another kind - a nineteen-year-old daughter whose existence he never suspected. Her mother was an overnight acquaintance whom with some effort he manages, barely, to recall. The daughter's name is Amanda, and her phone call sends Shaper's drab-gray existence into dazzling Technicolor. Amanda arrives trailing a motley band of associates: a con man who explains his activities on his gypsy heritage, except that he may not have one; his blatantly seductive daughter; Amanda's boyfriend, D'Wayne, a streetsmart and (usually) genial black giant. The con man owns what he has named The Yerba Buena Foundation, dedicated to helping businessmen relieve stress; his daughter - well, she runs the place, D'Wayne is the house's security man. Others turn up, segueing from various areas of Shaper's life. Amanda, part typical teenager, part young receptacle of ancient wisdom, is currently employed as a "therapist" at the Foundation. Shaper plunges into this personal mosh pit like a repentant sinner at a river baptism, the shock of his plunge awakening him to the realization that there's more in life than was dreamt of in his philosophy. Gold has been blessing readers with his contemplation of the human condition for many years. In this novel his lovely humor and deep understanding illuminates how a man walking a barren highway may react when fate suddenly shoves him onto an unpaved, rutted dirt road.

Shae-Lynn Penrose drives a cab in a town where no one needs a cab—but plenty of people need rides. A former police officer with a closet full of miniskirts, a recklessly sharp tongue, and a tendency to deal with men by either beating them up or taking them to bed, she has spent years carving out a life for herself and her son in Jolly Mount, Pennsylvania, the tiny coal-mining town where she grew up. Two years ago, five of Shae-Lynn’s miner friends were catapulted to media stardom when they were rescued after surviving four days trapped in a mine. As the men struggle to come to terms with the nightmarish memories of their ordeal, along with the fallout of their short- lived celebrity, Shae-Lynn finds herself facing harsh realities and reliving bad dreams of her own, including her relationship with her brutal father, her conflicted passion for one of the miners, and the hidden identity of the man who fathered her son. When the younger sister she thought was dead arrives on her doorstep, followed closely by a gun-wielding Russian gangster, a shady New York lawyer, and a desperate Connecticut housewife, Shae-Lynn is forced to grapple with the horrible truth she discovers about the life her sister’s been living, and with one ominous question: Will her return result in a monstrous act of greed or one of sacrifice? Tawni O’Dell’s trademark blend of black humor, tenderness, and a keen sense of place is evident once again as Shae-Lynn takes on past demons and all-too-present dangers. From the Hardcover edition.

BEING DEAD CAN KILL A SOCIAL LIFE! For Lil Marchette, the owner of Manhattan’s premier dating service for vampires (and a dazzling denizen of the dark herself), death is all in a night’s work. Unfortunately, it’s going to take more than matching up vamps to pay the bills and fund Lil’s cosmetics addiction. Dare she add actual humans to the mix? Eager to diversify, she signs up for a popular dating show, Manhattan’s Most Wanted (MMW), to pitch her expertise to the perfect target audience–eligible women looking for eligible men. Of course Lil is trying to forget the one man she’d love to sink her own teeth into: Ty Bonner, the ultraseductive vamp who broke her heart after she gave him the hottest night of his afterlife. Problem is, she and Ty have an intense mental connection and she’s sensing he’s in deep trouble. Even worse, she soon finds herself heading for MMW’s grand finale (cameras are so not a vamp’s best friend). The race is on as Lil struggles to save Ty (and herself) before all hell breaks loose. “Lil is a likable mix of Bridget Jones, Carrie Bradshaw and Dracula–charming, sweet, stylish, with just a hint of fang.” –Parkersburg News and Sentinel From the Paperback edition.

Es wird dir so leidtun, wenn du erkennst, was ich deinetwegen tun musste. Doch keine Sorge: Ich bereue nichts. Als die angehende Schriftstellerin Guinevere Beck die Buchhandlung betritt, in der Joe Goldberg arbeitet, ist dieser augenblicklich hingerissen von ihr. Beck ist die perfekte Frau: wunderschön, clever und so sexy. Als sie ihren Einkauf mit ihrer Kreditkarte bezahlt, macht Joe das, was jeder normale Mensch in dieser Situation tun würde: Er googelt ihren Namen. Beck hat einen öffentlichen Facebook-Account, und sie twittert ununterbrochen. Kinderleicht findet Joe heraus, dass sie an der Brown University studiert, in der Bank Street wohnt und sich an diesem Abend mit ihren Freundinnen in einer Bar treffen wird - die perfekte Gelegenheit für ihn, sie "zufällig" wiederzusehen und mit ihr ins Gespräch zu kommen! Ohne dass Beck es bemerkt, beginnt Joe, ihr Leben in seine Hand zu nehmen. Stück für Stück zerstört er ihre Welt - und treibt sie dadurch auf direktem Weg in seine offenen Arme. Bald kann Beck gar nicht anders, als sich in den seltsamen, aber irgendwie charismatischen Typen zu verlieben, der wie für sie gemacht scheint. Nicht ahnend, dass Joe systematisch alle Hindernisse aus dem Weg räumt, die sich zwischen ihre Liebe drängen könnten - und er dabei auch nicht vor Mord zurückschreckt. "Gone Girl trifft auf eine böse Version von Girls." Marie Claire "Clever und eiskalt." Elle "Hypnotisch und unheimlich ... Ich habe noch nie etwas Vergleichbares gelesen." Stephen King "Ich bin GEFESSELT, ENTSETZT, ERREGT ... Einer dieser seltenen Fälle, bei denen Plot und Prosa gleichermaßen ausgezeichnet sind." Lena Dunham "Wenn Sie nur einen einzigen Thriller in diesem Jahr lesen, sorgen Sie dafür, dass es dieser hier ist." Daily Mail
