D. G. Swank - Of ​Ash and Spirit
The ​first book in a Curse Keepers spinoff series by New York Times bestselling author Denise Grover Swank writing as D.G. Swank. Who's afraid of ghosts? Not Piper Lancaster, because even though she's a ghost whisperer, she's a skeptic. Piper helps her clients settle their inner demons, and that's good enough for her-even if ghosts aren't real. That is until the astonishing reappearance of the ruins of the Lost Colony of Roanoke turns her world upside down. Now belief in the supernatural is at an all-time high, and people are seeing ghosts in every shadow. There's one problem-the reemergence of the Lost Colony has awakened both the supernatural world and Piper's very real talent as a medium. The first time she actually sees a ghost, she thinks it's a hallucination, a joke, anything but what it really is. But she's soon confronted with evidence she can't deny. Ghosts exist, and worse, so do demons. As if that weren't enough, Asheville has a new resident demon that's intent on killing her, and a sinfully handsome stranger who says she's the only one who can destroy it. Barely able to accept the complete reversal in her convictions, Piper must discover-and embrace-her true identity before it's too late.

D. G. Swank - Of ​Fire and Storm
Just ​when Piper begins to accept her new role as demon slayer, a fresh threat rises. People are disappearing, and Piper is sure a sinister, otherworldly force is at play. Add to that ghosts who show up out of thin air, warning her of a danger she won’t be able to outrun, and a freaking bevy of supernatural creatures hiding in the background, and Piper suddenly has her hands full. Especially when the new creatures aren’t demons, or ghosts and she has no idea how to deal with them. Or whether or not they be good little monsters, or bad. There is one man who has the knowledge she needs to survive but she can’t even count on him. Why? The bastard left town. One thing is certain: a big bad demon’s come to town and Piper has to stop him—but she needs help to do it. If only she could figure out whom to trust…

Jackie Kay - Trumpet
"Supremely ​humane.... Kay leaves us with a broad landscape of sweet tolerance and familial love."--The New York Times Book Review In her starkly beautiful and wholly unexpected tale, Jackie Kay delves into the most intimate workings of the human heart and mind and offers a triumphant tale of loving deception and lasting devotion. The death of legendary jazz trumpeter Joss Moody exposes an extraordinary secret, one that enrages his adopted son, Colman, leading him to collude with a tabloid journalist. Besieged by the press, his widow Millie flees to a remote Scottish village, where she seeks solace in memories of their marriage. The reminiscences of those who knew Joss Moody render a moving portrait of a shared life founded on an intricate lie, one that preserved a rare, unconditional love.

Jackie Kay - Why ​Don't You Stop Talking
Following ​on from her award-winning first novel, "Trumpet", comes a collection of superlative stories. In true Kay style, these small masterpieces cover a great deal of emotional and narrative terrain, from an immaculate observation of the female physiognomy to the bewilderment of the elderly; from silent hidden love to a lifetime reminiscence of an immigrant's England. Warm and tender, frightening and funny, these stories confirm the arrival of a major storyteller. "A stunner. I am heartbroken to have finished it" - Ali Smith. "The beauty of Kay's stories is in how much they continue to resonate long after finishing" - "Time Out". "These pieces contain - and ultimately liberate - definitively human ordinariness, a rigmarole of isolation and love, fidelity and betrayal, noise and silence, birth and death" - "Guardian". "One of the liveliest talents of her generation" - "Sunday Telegraph".

Jacqueline Hassink - Tim Dant - Car ​Girls
It ​takes an artist with the astute eye of Holland's Jacqueline Hassink to capture the actual oddness of the use of female models to sell cars. Hassink has already been acclaimed for books and exhibitions addressing issues of power and social relations, and _Car Girls_ is a supreme instance of these explorations–a body of work that has taken more than five years to complete, photographing car shows in cities on three different continents. As Hassink affirms, she has used these sites to reflect on the differing cultural values with regard to their ideal images of beauty and women. The series captures the moments during the women's performances when they become more like "dolls or tools than individuals." In an issue of _Aperture_ magazine, Francine Prose described Hassink's achievement perfectly, praising the work for its ability to "make us rethink the association between auto and eros as if it had never occurred to us, and to see it newly in all its sheer outrageous strangeness." _Car Girls_ takes a subversively fun but conceptually smart approach to issues of gender, power and commodification. This luxuriously produced publication with a foldout poster cover is designed by Irma Boom and is limited to an edition of 1,500 copies.

Jeremy Greenberg - Sorry ​I Barfed on Your Bed
TIME ​FOR A CHAT WITH YOUR CAT! Our feline friends have a lot on their minds, and they're caterwauling about more than just flea baths and empty food bowls: "What's with you only getting eight hours of sleep? Don't you know the daily minimum is sixteen?" "I'm sorry you can't go jogging with a kitty. But have you ever thought that with me you don't need to jog - I'm happy ignoring you just the way you are." ...and, of course. "Sorry I barfed on the bed.

Jeremy Greenberg - Sorry ​I Pooped in Your Shoe
LOOK ​OUT DOG LOVERS! Your canine companions are finally speaking their minds, and they have way more to say than "bark" and "woof": "You said, 'Not on the couch.' That's why I'm on the recliner." "When you were growing up, did your mommy make you eat on a welcome mat by yourself in a corner of the house?" ...and, of course. "Since you don't walk me anymore, I didn't think you'd mind if I pooped in your shoe." From a resolute promise to defeat Mr. Sprinkler Head, to an impassioned plea to stop the silly nicknames, this hilarious collection of letters provides a pooch's perspective on common canine conundrums and lovingly reveals that, when it comes to understanding man's best friend, man could learn some new tricks of his own.

Jhumpa Lahiri - In ​Other Words
From ​the Pulitzer Prize winner, a surprising, powerful, and eloquent nonfiction debut In Other Words is at heart a love story—of a long and sometimes difficult courtship, and a passion that verges on obsession: that of a writer for another language. For Jhumpa Lahiri, that love was for Italian, which first captivated and capsized her during a trip to Florence after college. And although Lahiri studied Italian for many years afterward, true mastery had always eluded her. So in 2012, seeking full immersion, she decided to move to Rome with her family, for “a trial by fire, a sort of baptism” into a new language and world. In Rome, Lahiri began to read, and to write—initially in her journal—solely in Italian. In Other Words, an autobiographical work written in Italian, investigates the process of learning to express oneself in another language, and describes the journey of a writer seeking a new voice. Presented in a dual-language format, it is a book about exile, linguistic and otherwise, written with an intensity and clarity not seen since Nabokov. A startling act of self-reflection and a provocative exploration of belonging and reinvention.
