Momentitiousness - , Summary

Since they first named it, attention deficit disorder (ADD) has been a marker for the American generation who came of age between Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, with Prince or the Beastie Boys playing in the background while the Mario Brothers and the Golden Girls battled in the foreground. Back then, education, football, and Hollywood were wrapped in capitalism and sentimentality. Embracing distraction and fighting with concentration, Momentitiousness captures the spirit and literary needs of this generation and its heirs with its spurious connections and tangential relationships. Loosely lassoing the possibilities enabled by the digital evolution toward boundless search, this novel collection first establishes the “you” and then proceeds to obliterate the “I” in multiple dimensions. Nibble on this new literary form—obsessively perched between collection and novel—as it wanders along a least-squares path from moment to moment, from singularity to communion. Here, find stories—from arbitrage to zombies, Chicago to Columbia, dark to energy—about love and disappointment, science and spirits, and life, death, and the undead. Feast upon this antidote to the mundane as it irreverently exalts the soul of an ADD generation like a collection of first kisses: nostalgic and sweet, sensuous and raw, tenuously related, and well wrought..

Black Kettle - Jason Leclerc Summary

Picking up where the fragmented narrative of Momentitiousness left off, Black Kettle explores the many manifestations of hope and deceit in the human experience. This is a novella collection--sweet, sensual, sadistic, and sullen--where independently complete stories burst forth with playful vigor, featuring heroes and antiheroes alike. Using the true story of Black Kettle--a peaceful Cheyenne Indian chief, who was gruesomely slaughtered in the 1860s--as a metaphorical backdrop, the text builds on the ambivalence inherent in hypocrisy. More than blood and guts, sex and postapocalyptical musing, Black Kettle derives its power from an understanding of both the human mind and the human soul. In the novella Black Kettle, witness the moments immediately preceding, during, and after two galactic earth-shattering events. In Trayvon, observe young men as they discover the shifting tangents connected by sexuality, love, and family. Finally, in The Nola Trilogy, watch carnal pleasure morph into sentimentality, heartbreak, and eventual rebirth..

Lindsey - Kimberly Kolb Summary

Fifteen-year-old Lindsey Morgan Brooks is still considered the new kid in the small town of Emit, Michigan. Both of her parents are lawyers, but her father has built his reputation prosecuting some of the worst criminals in New York and Chicago. Now, as a high school junior, she is trying to choose her own path. Lindsey feels the demands and pressure from school, gymnastics, and her parents as she battles insecurities to build friendships while steering clear of the many land mines in high school—such as the group of popular girls she has dubbed the “Fab Five.” Busy with activities and consumed with thoughts of her secret crush, Chris, she takes little notice of what’s happening around her. She gets a flat tire, gets caught with the lights-out and starts receiving strange text messages—things she assumes are just high school pranks gone too far. Her father wants her to be able to handle herself, so she should be able to handle this. But while she steals a glimpse at Chris, who is watching her? "LINDSEY is a lovely YA tale of young love and deep intrigue. Lindsey Brooks faces a peril all the more invisible because of the seemingly normal veneer of popular girls and teen crushes she deals with at high school every day." Scott Turow, Best Selling Author and Authors Guild President.

The Kept - James Scott Summary

With shades of Charles Portis, Cormac McCarthy and Flannery O’Connor, this is a gothic western transferred to the ice-locked wilds of upstate New York at the turn of the 20th century; a brutal and searing debut novel about a mother’s obsession and a son’s search for answers in the wake of a terrible and violent tragedy. In the winter of 1897, midwife Elspeth Howell returns to her isolated farmstead to find her husband and four of her five children murdered. Before she discovers her remaining son, Caleb, alive and hiding in the kitchen pantry, she is shot. Caleb nurses his mother back to health, cleaning her wounds and keeping her fed, before he and Elspeth leave their home to seek retribution from the men who committed this heinous crime. As they travel from country to town to hunt the murderers, the reader learns of Elspeth’s deep secret--that she kidnapped the very children who call her mother--and questions her role in the novel’s initial violence. Meanwhile Caleb is confronted with the ways of a world he’s never known. The line between justice and vengeance is thrown into question as Caleb and Elspeth are forced to reconsider their relationship and what unknown future lies ahead for both of them. The Kept is a portrait of both maternal obsessions and a primal adolescence in a brutal world. Fans of True Grit’s Mattie Ross and All the Pretty Horses’s Jimmy Blevins will love Caleb Howell, the next great old-beyond-his-years protaganist of an unforgettable literary Western--this time set in the icy wilderness of the East Coast..
