Chris Cleave's "Gold" (release date July 3, 2012)
“Cleave goes for the gold and brings it home in his thrillingly written and emotionally rewarding novel about the world of professional cycling … Cleave expertly cycles through the characters’ tangled past and present, charting their ever-shifting dynamic as ultra-competitive Zoe and Kate are forced to decide whether winning means more to them than friendship … Cleave likewise pulls out all the stops getting inside the hearts and minds of his engagingly complex characters. The race scenes have true visceral intensity, leaving the reader feeling breathless … From start to finish, this is a truly Olympic-level literary achievement.” –PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Emily St. John Mandel's "Lola Quartet"
‘How far would you go for someone you love?” Liam Deval asks Gavin Sasaki toward the end of this intricately plotted novel. But what he means is: How vile a crime would you be willing to commit? This constitutes one of the central questions of “The Lola Quartet,’’ Emily St. John Mandel’s new novel that blends elements of mystery with character studies of a group of young adults in Florida prematurely filled with dark disappointment about their lives. -Boston Globe Review

"Lola Quartet" by Emily St. John Mandel In her most ambitious novel yet, Emily Mandel combines her most fully realized characters with perhaps her most fully developed story that examines the difficulty of being the person you'd like to be, loss, the way a small and innocent action can have disastrous consequences. The Lola Quartet is a work that pays homage to literary noir, is concerned with jazz, Django Reinhardt, economic collapse, love, Florida’s exotic wildlife problem, crushing tropical heat, the leavening of the contemporary world, compulsive gambling, and the unreliability of memory. This is literary fiction with a strong detective story element.
