    Released for the summer from the perils of school, Xanther and her nameless cat are settling into a comfortable routine at home. However, the rest of the Ibrahim family is growing more and more unsettled. Astair fears their stretched finances are already at a breaking point. Not even a visit from an old friend can mitigate Anwar’s feeling that he’s failing to support those he loves and that even worse things are to come. The twins, Freya and Shasti, sense something too and blame their older sister. Honeysuckles haunt the air and smell of offerings . . . Meanwhile, Cas and Bobby’s survival may depend on facing the one person they fear most. And on the other side of the world, Jingjing and Tian Li set out to find what was lost: their missing cat. With spectacular visuals and the vibrant wordplay that are his trademark, The Familiar (Volume 3) is a beautiful and singular reading experience that could come only from the imagination of Mark Z. Danielewski.

    This tour de force debut novel examines the horrific absence at the heart of life - in the form of 'a story about a story about a story about a film about a house with a black hole in it.' But it's a lot more ambitious than the story it tells, and for that matter, deconstructs. It is the love of the difficult that brings such a work to light, making the easy seem finally possible. 709p.

    A National Book Award Finalist. Raising the level of American literature to a new height of experimentation, this innovative novel combines the rhythm and swing of rap with the high lyricism of the beauty of nature. As complex as the novel appears, it is based essentially on the simple, romantic stories of two young lovers, Hailey and Sam, as they cross the continent in jalopies. Their love is fated by the lives they are trying to escape from, and more, fated by history - not only American history, but world history, so overwhelmingly the history of those who 'go,' who die in train wrecks, in earthquakes, in wars. From the author of 'House of Leaves.' 384p.
