DESCRIPTION:

What do you do when life throws you a wild pitch? You either get out of the way or you take a shot to the ribs and continue the game a little bruised. Are You F***ing Kidding Me? follows Jennifer as she experiences a series of wild pitches that keep her off balance and bruised for 20 years of her life. However, we also watch as she picks herself up and learns from each experience.

Are You F***ing Kidding me? is the story of escape from a controlling relationship, the catastrophe of dating as a single mom, the healing process after losing someone to cancer, and the ability to laugh through the toughest circumstances. Jennifer navigates each situation always with determination, consistently with humor, and often with epic failure. It is the story of one woman’s fortitude to protect the people closest to her and a love story of two people who needed each other in ways they never expected.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY
NPR • Cosmopolitan • Kirkus Reviews • BookPage

A page-turning thriller for readers of Stephen King, Gillian Flynn, and Stieg Larsson, Night Film tells the haunting story of a journalist who becomes obsessed with the mysterious death of a troubled prodigy–the daughter of an iconic, reclusive filmmaker.
 
On a damp October night, beautiful young Ashley Cordova is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan. Though her death is ruled a suicide, veteran investigative journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise. As he probes the strange circumstances surrounding Ashley’s life and death, McGrath comes face-to-face with the legacy of her father: the legendary, reclusive cult-horror-film director Stanislas Cordova–a man who hasn’t been seen in public for more than thirty years.
 
For McGrath, another death connected to this seemingly cursed family dynasty seems more than just a coincidence. Though much has been written about Cordova’s dark and unsettling films, very little is known about the man himself.
 
Driven by revenge, curiosity, and a need for the truth, McGrath, with the aid of two strangers, is drawn deeper and deeper into Cordova’s eerie, hypnotic world.
 
The last time he got close to exposing the director, McGrath lost his marriage and his career. This time he might lose even more.
 
Night Film, the gorgeously written, spellbinding new novel by the dazzlingly inventive Marisha Pessl, will hold you in suspense until you turn the final page.

Praise for Night Film
 
Night Film has been precision-engineered to be read at high velocity, and its energy would be the envy of any summer blockbuster. Your average writer of thrillers should lust for Pessl’s deft touch with character.”–Joe Hill, The New York Times Book Review
 
“Mysterious and even a little head-spinning, an amazing act of imagination.”–Dean Baquet, The New York Times Book Review
 
“Maniacally clever . . . Cordova is a monomaniacal genius who creeps into the darkest crevices of the human psyche. . . . As a study of a great mythmaker, Night Film is an absorbing act of myth-making itself. . . . Dastardly fun . . . The plot feels like an M. C. Escher nightmare about Edgar Allan Poe. . . . You’ll miss your subway stop, let dinner burn and start sleeping with the lights on.”The Washington Post
 
“Haunting . . . a suspenseful, sprawling page-turner.”USA Today
 
“Entrancing and delightful . . . [a] whipsmart humdinger of a thriller . . . It feels, above all things, new.”The Boston Globe
 
“Gripping . . . a masterful puzzle . . . Pessl builds up real suspense.”Entertainment Weekly
 
“A very deeply imagined book . . . sprints to an ending that’s equal parts nagging and haunting: What lingers, beyond all the page-turning, is a density of possible clues that leaves you leafing backward, scanning fictional blog comments and newspaper clippings, positive there’s some secret detail that will snap everything into focus.”New York
 
“Hypnotic . . . The real and the imaginary, life and art, are dizzyingly distorted not only in a Cordova night film . . . but in Pessl’s own Night Film as well.”Vanity Fair

DESCRIPTION:

For Lina Holt, a Dutch seventeen-year-old with a flair for singing, 1930 is going to be her year. Her long-time boyfriend is about to propose and her mother will finally realize their relationship isn’t a passing phase. But when a stranger snatches her from her backyard, everything changes.

Lina is thrust into the spotlight of a New York vaudeville show where she’s paired with Nik, a mysterious pianist. The two bond during rehearsals and it doesn’t take long before Nik puts himself at risk to confess a hidden truth. Without Lina, the show is in its last season and there’s no way she’ll be allowed to slip through the owner’s fingers. Not when she carries fairy magic in her blood–an gift that turns her song into a dangerously addictive drug.

If Lina ever wants to return home, she must learn who to trust before she’s forced to remain a prisoner on stage forever.

WHEN STARS ARE BRIGHT is a historical Thumbelina retelling with a touch of magic.

DESCRIPTION:

It was supposed to be a fun Florida vacation for Mark and his girlfriend. Their host–Mark’s best friend Chris–lives in the manufactured home community of Paradise Palms in a small town outside of Orlando. But when Chris is arrested and jailed on drug charges Mark’s world quickly spins out of control.
Ten years ago Chris saved Mark from going to jail after Mark killed a college girl in a drunk driving accident. Now the tables are turned and Chris expects Mark’s help, but how far should Mark go to help save his friend?
When Mark promises to help Chris’s drug business survive while Chris is in jail, Mark ends up involved with Chris’s business partner, Jennifer, an exotic dancer. Mary–one of the Paradise Palms residents–has special gifts that can help save Mark from himself, but what path will Mark choose?
In the tight-knit neighborhood of Paradise Palms, Mary’s empathic nature is tested by other challenges from within the community. She is the caretaker of her anxiety-ridden father and of her aging surrogate mother. Patrick, a gay teenager beset by an intolerant father, seeks Mary support, as well.
Paradise Palms central story is Mark’s inner struggle and the ultimate choices he makes. Mark knows that the allure of sex and drugs will not rid him of the demons from his past, but there’s a price to pay on his road to redemption.
