One of BuzzFeed's 24 Best Fiction Books of 2015

"As Simon, a lonely research librarian, searches frantically for the key to a curse that might be killing the women in his family, he learns strange and fascinating secrets about their past. A tale full of magic and family mystery, The Book of Speculation will keep you up all night reading."–Isaac Fitzgerald, BuzzFeed

Simon Watson, a young librarian, lives alone in a house that is slowly crumbling toward the Long Island Sound. His parents are long dead. His mother, a circus mermaid who made her living by holding her breath, drowned in the very water his house overlooks. His younger sister, Enola, ran off six years ago and now reads tarot cards for a traveling carnival.

One June day, an old book arrives on Simon's doorstep, sent by an antiquarian bookseller who purchased it on speculation. Fragile and water damaged, the book is a log from the owner of a traveling carnival in the 1700s, who reports strange and magical things, including the drowning death of a circus mermaid. Since then, generations of "mermaids" in Simon's family have drowned–always on July 24, which is only weeks away.

As his friend Alice looks on with alarm, Simon becomes increasingly worried about his sister. Could there be a curse on Simon's family? What does it have to do with the book, and can he get to the heart of the mystery in time to save Enola?

In the tradition of Sara Gruen's Water for Elephants, Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus, and Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian, The Book of Speculation–with two-color illustrations by the author–is Erika Swyler's moving debut novel about the power of books, family, and magic.

DESCRIPTION:

Desire to find your Authentic Voice? Learn the process to participate more authentically in the project we call humanity•••

◆ Rare are the spaces in which we can look inwardly at who we are. There is no horizon to do so more intimately than reading one’s biography. Reflect on what and who you are. What constitutes your core self? What should that be?

◆ While there is no such thing as an “Authenticity Expert,” you now have a viable alternative. Morhaf Al Achkar obtained his Ph.D in education and is currently a practicing family physician at the University of Washington. He was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. Since then, his research has focused on the experiences of patients living with cancer. His first book is based on interviews he did with 39 patients who live, like him, with advanced illness. He explored how these patients find meaning, cope, and build resilience. Using his own experiences and deep knowledge of philosophical concepts, Morhaf shares his understanding of authenticity from the perspective of someone aware of his own finitude.

◆ By following along with his fascinating life story, Morhaf invites you on a journey of dialogue and reflection to live a more authentic and purposeful life with integrity.

★ By engaging with the author’s story in Being Authentic™, you will:

  • Garner the bravery to look at your own and be more authentic
  • Strive to connect with the poet, artist, writer, dancer, and actor in You
  • Learn how to heal, forgive, and let go of resentment to live a more positive life
  • Develop better-coping skills and become more resilient in the face of pandemic-like events
  • And much, much more!

Being Authentic: A Memoir™ is the second book in Dr. Alachkar’s self-help series. The first was on resilience and meaning.

◆ Dr. Alachkar’s Memoir shares genuine emotion, heartbreaks and great successes, and encourages us to be our authentic selves. This Memoir highlights our humanity’s purpose to share our story and of our fear of being forgotten after death and yet to live each day. If you like easy and genuine reads that tell it to you straight, then be sure to get your FREE Kindle Copy of Morhaf’s Being Authentic
