Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
ISBN: 9780544960121
Release Date: 2017-06-27
Genre: Fiction

“Thoroughly surprising . . . The Sisters Chase is that rare thing, a slow burner that conceals its cunning and sneaks up on you unawares.” — New York Times “Mary is a wonderful creation . . . A modern picaresque novel that surprises and delights.” — Toronto Star The hardscrabble Chase women—Mary, Hannah, and their mother, Diane—have been eking out a living running a tiny seaside motel that has been in the family for generations. Eighteen-year-old Mary Chase is a force of nature: passionate, beautiful, and free-spirited. Her much younger sister, Hannah, whom Mary affectionately calls Bunny, is imaginative, her head full of the stories Mary tells to give her a safe emotional place in the middle of their troubled world. When Diane dies in a car accident, Mary discovers that the motel is worth less than the back taxes they owe, and her finely tuned instincts for survival kick in. As the sisters begin a cross-country journey in search of a better life, she will stop at nothing to protect Hannah. But Mary wants to protect herself, too, for the secrets she promised she would never tell—but now may be forced to reveal—hold the weight of unbearable loss. “Captivating” (Publishers Weekly) and suspenseful, The Sisters Chase is a “striking, heartbreaking story about love, motherhood, and family, with a powerful and elusive protagonist at its heart” (Library Journal).

The Dharma Bums

Author: Jack Kerouac
Publisher: Penguin
ISBN: 110119930X
Release Date: 1971-05-27
Genre: Fiction

Jack Kerouac’s classic novel about friendship, the search for meaning, and the allure of nature First published in 1958, a year after On the Road put the Beat Generation on the map, The Dharma Bums stands as one of Jack Kerouac's most powerful and influential novels. The story focuses on two ebullient young Americans--mountaineer, poet, and Zen Buddhist Japhy Ryder, and Ray Smith, a zestful, innocent writer--whose quest for Truth leads them on a heroic odyssey, from marathon parties and poetry jam sessions in San Francisco's Bohemia to solitude and mountain climbing in the High Sierras. From the Trade Paperback edition.

I Just Hitched in from the Coast

Author: Ed McClanahan
Publisher: Counterpoint
ISBN: 9781582438351
Release Date: 2011-11-01
Genre: Fiction

This rollicking collection—personally selected by the author (in collaboration with his editor Tom Marksbury)—gathers the best of Ed McClanahan’s work, making it a must-have for both long-time fans and newcomers alike. Comprised of fourteen works, I Just Hitched in from the Coast is an admixture of fiction and non-fiction, memoir and imagination. It includes such classics as “Fondelle, or: The Whore with a Heart of Gold,” and the wry essay “The Day the Lampshades Breathed,” chronicling McClanahan’s time in the 1960s. In “The Essentials of Western Civilization,” McClanahan imagines the affairs of Assistant Professor Harrison B. Eastep, MA, of Arbuckle State in Oregon, and of the gradual erosion of his dedication to academia. Weaving together Vietnam, rock and roll, a lackluster counterculture past, and the Great Plague of London, this is storytelling at its best by a master of the craft. The foremost stylist of the Yippie generation, McClanahan writes with bemused affection. He parlays his Southern sensibilities and California experiences with a mastery of language, to tantalize his readers with musings that are absurd, whimsical, outrageous, and, in the words of one reviewer, “wickedly sharp.”

An Outer Banks Reader

Author: David Stick
Publisher: UNC Press Books
ISBN: 9781469621548
Release Date: 1998-06-01
Genre: History

For half a century, David Stick has been writing books about the fragile chain of barrier islands off the North Carolina coast known as the Outer Banks. Two of his earliest, Graveyard of the Atlantic and The Outer Banks of North Carolina, were published by the UNC Press in the 1950s, and continue to be best-sellers. More recently, Stick embarked on another project, searching for the most captivating and best-written examples of what others have said about his beloved Outer Banks. In the process, more than 1,000 books, pamphlets, periodicals, historical documents, and other writings were reviewed. The result is a rich and fascinating anthology. The selections in An Outer Banks Reader span the course of more than four and a half centuries, from the first known record of a meeting between Europeans and Native Americans in the region in 1524 to modern-day accounts of life on the Outer Banks. Together, Stick hopes, the sixty-four entries may provide both "outlanders" and natives with an understanding of why the Outer Banks are home to a rapidly growing number of people who would rather spend the rest of their lives there than any place else on earth.
