    Recovering from a car crash in his daughter's home in Vermont, 72-year-old August Brill is unable to sleep, lying in bed, telling himself stories, struggling to push away thoughts about things he'd prefer not to dwell on. Instead of reflecting on his wife's recent passing and the death of his daughter's boyfriend in Iraq, Brill creates a vivid alternate reality of an America frought with civil strife. Brill's dream world is so vivid and dark that a soldier from this world is sent on a mission to assassinate Brill to bring an end to the dream, and thus the war. This post-modern reflection on the relationship between fantasy and reality also deals with war and grief. 180p.

The author's mesmerizing eleventh novel is at once a meditation on the nature of time and a journey through the labyrinth of one man's imagination. The book's central figure, Sidney Orr, is a 34-year-old novelist several months into his recovery from a near-fatal illness, who, on September 18, 1982, enters a stationery shop in the Cobble Hill section of Brooklyn and purchases a blue notebook. For the next nine days Orr will live under the spell of this blank book. Other events occur in uncanny fashion, making his life more a matter of passage through the haunted realms of everyday existence. 243p.
