DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Hurt people hurt people. Say there was a novel in which Holden Caulfield was an alcoholic and Lolita was a photographer’s assistant and, somehow, they met in Bright Lights, Big City. He’s blinded by love. She by ambition. Diary of an Oxygen Thief is an honest, hilarious, and heartrending novel, but above all, a very realistic account of what we do to each other and what we allow to have done to us.

Eunuchs and Nymphomaniacs is about how we love today and how increasingly we try to avoid it altogether.

Editor: Feiwel & Friends

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

The Cruelty is an action-packed young adult thriller (optioned for film by Jerry Bruckheimer) about a girl who must train as an assassin to deal with the gangsters who have kidnapped her father. Gwendolyn's father kept his life a secret from her. When he goes missing, she's plunged into a world of assassins, spies, and criminal masterminds. When Gwendolyn Bloom’s father vanishes, she sets off on a journey she never bargained for. Traveling under a new identity, she uncovers a disturbing truth: to bring her father back alive, she must become every bit as cruel as the men holding him captive. This suspensful debut from Scott Bergstrom features a strong female character and nonstop, cinematic action. Praise for The Cruelty: "Liam Neeson’s 2008 film Taken concerned a spy who engages in mass mayhem while attempting to recover his kidnapped daughter. Bergstrom reverses this plot in his violent, well-crafted first novel. Seventeen-year-old gymnast Gwendolyn Bloom doesn’t learn that her father is a genuine spy?and not merely an overworked State Department employee?until after he is kidnapped by international gangsters, and the CIA makes little attempt to recover him . . . A grim, fast- paced tale." —Publishers Weekly "[T]his debut novel is relentlessly paced, full of global sets, slick action...with a grim, ass-kicking antihero." —Booklist The Cruelty is a nominee for the 2018 Edgar Award for best Young Adult book.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

In 1967, after a session with a psychiatrist she'd never seen before, eighteen-year-old Susanna Kaysen was put in a taxi and sent to McLean Hospital. She spent most of the next two years in the ward for teenage girls in a psychiatric hospital as renowned for its famous clientele—Sylvia Plath, Robert Lowell, James Taylor, and Ray Charles—as for its progressive methods of treating those who could afford its sanctuary. Kaysen's memoir encompasses horror and razor-edged perception while providing vivid portraits of her fellow patients and their keepers. It is a brilliant evocation of a "parallel universe" set within the kaleidoscopically shifting landscape of the late sixties. Girl, Interrupted is a clear-sighted, unflinching document that gives lasting and specific dimension to our definitions of sane and insane, mental illness and recovery.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Meet Eric Nye: hipster, player, philosopher, drunk, sociopath. A ruthless, young Chief Idea Officer at a New York City–based ad agency, Eric is in charge of downsizing his department, which entails firing dozens of long-time employees before their pensions kick in. In his free time, he guzzles the finest Sancerre, balances a hodgepodge of prescription pills, obsesses over his lavish furnishings and chases women. One day, he meets Intern, whose name he can’t remember—it might be Megan or Caitlin or Sari—at a bar in Bushwick. After a few drunken sexual encounters with her, he loses his appetite for food—and seems to be losing his mind, too. Is she in love with him, or is she stalking him? Will she be the cause of his downfall or the cure for his sociopathic tendencies? A timely meditation on the inherent absurdity of corporatism and our ubiquitous culture of branding, The Deep Whatsis follows a brilliant anti-hero’s quest for contemporary self-identity, with echoes of American Psycho, Cosmopolis and Fight Club.
