An Unfortunate Woman: A Journey By Richard Brautigan
Requirements: Epub/Kindle Reader, 212 KB, 265 KB, 445 KB Version: Retail
Overview: Richard Brautigan’s last novel, published in the U.S. for the first time
Richard Brautigan was an original–brilliant and wickedly funny, his books resonated with the sixties, making him an overnight counterculture hero. Taken in its entirety, his body of work reveals an artistry that outreaches the literary fads that so quickly swept him up.
Dark, funny, and exquisitely haunting, his final book-length fiction explores the fragile, mysterious shadowland surrounding death. Told with classic Brautigan wit, poetic style, and mordant irony, An Unfortunate Woman assumes the form of a peripatetic journal chronicling the protagonist’s travels and oblique ruminations on the suicide of one woman, and a close friend’s death from cancer.
After Richard Brautigan committed suicide, his only child, Ianthe Brautigan, found among his possessions the manuscript of An Unfortunate Woman. It had been completed over a year earlier, but was still unpublished at the time of his death. Finding it was too painful to face her father’s presence page after page, she put the manuscript aside.
Years later, having completed a memoir about her father’s life and death, Ianthe Brautigan reread An Unfortunate Woman, and finally, clear-eyed, she saw that it was her father’s work at its best and had to be published.

Requirements: ePUB , reader, 320 KB
Overview: Myth Makers is a powerful story that measures the worth of two worlds…This story is epic, outstanding, a bridge between north and south. And through art one can discover its true center.—Reader’s Favourite Reviews
Few have even heard of the Sixties Scoop, but for Margaret Swiftfox, it meant being taken from her home and sent south to live with two old sisters. It meant learning early that she had to keep her aboriginal origins hidden.
Now in her forties, Margaret is a successful businesswoman and believes she has moved beyond the past, but when Elizabeth Lange plows into her world, she realizes that is a myth.
Kooky Elizabeth. Flaky Elizabeth. Failed Elizabeth. Elizabeth Lange has dealt with labels her whole life. While the curator position in the Northwest Territories gives her the chance to make up for what was taken from her, the desperate move is not for the fainthearted.
Right off the bat, conflict between the two women about the NWT’s arts leads to hostile face-offs. But when they travel across the Arctic, circumstance pushes both Elizabeth and Margaret to reveal their pasts and the legacy it’s left behind. Can this new-found friendship help them heal its trauma?

The Indifference of Tumbleweed by Rebecca Tope (Oregon Tales 01)
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 2 MB
Overview: In 1846, thousands of people moved westwards to Oregon and California in wagon trains. This is the story of Charity Collins and the families in the Tennant Party who made the 2000-mile journey that year.

Charity and her sister Fanny are both of marriageable age, but they have very different attitudes towards the opposite sex. Charity slowly and painfully discovers her own profound ignorance during the course of the migration. Fanny, it seems, has a much clearer idea of what she wants and how to get it.

A large cast of characters comes into focus in the course of the story. The routines and demands of the constant travelling are interrupted by accidents, encounters and pauses at the various forts, but finally they arrive at the west coast. Which some might say is where the real adventures begin…

Download Postcards from the Edge by Carrie Fisher (.ePUB)(.MOBI) +

Postcards from the Edge by Carrie Fisher (Suzanne Vale #1)
Requirements: ePUB, MOBI or AZW3 Reader | 933 kB | Version: Retail
Overview: This bestselling Hollywood novel by the witty author of Wishful Drinking and Shockaholic that was made into a movie starring Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine.

When we first meet the extraordinary young actress Suzanne Vale, she’s feeling like “something on the bottom of someone’s shoe, and not even someone interesting.” Suzanne is in the harrowing and hilarious throes of drug rehabilitation, trying to understand what happened to her life and how she managed to land in a “drug hospital.”

Just as Fisher’s first film role—the precocious teenager in Shampoo—echoed her own Beverly Hills upbringing, her first book is set within the world she knows better than anyone else: Hollywood. This stunning literary debut chronicles Suzanne’s vivid, excruciatingly funny experiences inside the clinic and as she comes to terms with life in the outside world. Postcards from the Edge is more than a book about stardom and drugs. It is a revealing look at the dangers—and delights—of all our addictions, from money and success to sex and insecurity.

Bread and Butter by Michelle Wildgen
Requirements: ePUB reader, 1.7 MB
Overview: Kitchen Confidential meets Three Junes in this mouthwatering novel about three brothers who run competing restaurants, and the culinary snobbery, staff stealing, and secret affairs that unfold in the back of the house.

Britt and Leo have spent ten years running Winesap, the best restaurant in their small Pennsylvania town. They cater to their loyal customers; they don’t sleep with the staff; and business is good, even if their temperamental pastry chef is bored with making the same chocolate cake night after night. But when their younger brother, Harry, opens his own restaurant—a hip little joint serving an aggressive lamb neck dish—Britt and Leo find their own restaurant thrown off-kilter. Britt becomes fascinated by a customer who arrives night after night, each time with a different dinner companion. Their pastry chef, Hector, quits, only to reappear at Harry’s restaurant. And Leo finds himself falling for his executive chef-tempted to break the cardinal rule of restaurant ownership. Filled with hilarious insider detail—the one-upmanship of staff meals before the shift begins, the rivalry between bartender and hostess, the seedy bar where waitstaff and chefs go to drink off their workday—Bread and Butter is both an incisive novel of family and a gleeful romp through the inner workings of restaurant kitchens.

Horace and Me: Life Lessons from an Ancient Poet by Harry Eyres
Requirements: ePUB or AZW3 Reader, 1.8MB
Overview: A wise and witty revival of the Roman poet who taught us how to carpe diem.

What is the value of the durable at a time when the new is paramount? How do we fill the void created by the excesses of a superficial society? What resources can we muster when confronted by the inevitability of death? For the poet and critic Harry Eyres, we can begin to answer these questions by turning to an unexpected source: the Roman poet Horace, discredited at the beginning of the twentieth century as the “smug representative of imperialism,” now best remembered if remembered for the pithy directive “Carpe diem.”

In Horace and Me: Life Lessons from an Ancient Poet, Eyres reexamines Horace’s life, legacy, and verse. With a light, lyrical touch (deployed in new, fresh versions of some of Horace’s most famous odes) and a keen critical eye, Eyres reveals a lively, relevant Horace, whose society Rome at the dawn of the empire is much more similar to our own than we might want to believe.
