In the long, hot Illinois summer of 1973, insecure, motherless Jamie falls under the dangerous spell of her older, more worldly cousin Fawn, who’s come to stay with Jamie and her uncle as penance for committing an “unmentionable act.” It is a time of awakenings and corruptions, of tragedy and loss, as Jamie slowly discovers the extent to which Fawn will use anything and anyone to further her own ends—and recognizes, perhaps too late, her own complicity in the disaster that takes shape around them. “A captivating story about a teenager’s struggle to be accepted by her peers. . . . The story is more than believable—it simply comes alive. The book perfectly captures the free-spirited attitude of the decade and the curiosity of adolescence.”—Tampa Tribune “McLain compels as she excavates two tragedies.” —Chicago Sun-Times

1965: America’s favorite small-town detective must solve the murder of two old friends against the backdrop of America’s cultural revolution. For small-town Iowa lawyer Sam McCain the year 1965 is not a sweet one. His father is gravely ill. His elitist boss is just now coming out of rehab. The brilliant lawyer he'd hoped to start a relationship with has gone back to her husband in Chicago. And first young soldier from Black River Falls returns home from a strange place called Viet Nam. In a coffin. Against this background McCain tries to enjoy himself during the long Labor Day weekend party the town sponsors every year, reuniting with several old friends who appeared throughout the first six novels. Now that they're all in their late twenties some of the old grudges and rivalries seem silly—until two of them are murdered for what seems to be a motive buried in the past. With the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Bob Dylan irritating those over thirty—and the boys in long hair and girls wearing blouses without bras irritating people even more—Sam McCain is forced to realize that his old world, along with the entire country's, is about to end forever.

In 1964, the Beatles invaded America. Thirty-two shows in 25 cities in 31 days. Record-smashing attendance. Unimaginable fan reactions. It was the first major rock-and-roll concert tour ever. It was the beginning of a revolution. Ticket to Ride tells this story like it's never been told before. It is the story of an extraordinary journey of four young men from uncertainty to timeless legacy. It is also a story about the generation that grew along with them, from the innocence of the early sixties to the turbulent years later, when issues of race and war shattered the nation. Larry Kane, the only American Journalist to travel to every stop of the 1964 and 1965 Beatles' North American tours in the official press party, brings the events of these historic dates to life, offering an original inside account in words, pictures, and voice.

Carlota Caulfield's Ticket to Ride of is a collection of poems, essays and interviews. It is an autobiographical evocation of the author's family history, and a beautiful homage to her mother. Written over a period of years-from 1995 to 2005-these pieces make up a life as it is being lived and imagined. In them we find the poet's playful irony. Caulfield, like her beloved painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo, loves intellectual puzzles.

We've been to Paris with one, India with another. Now it's time to catch a Greyhound - and much more - and cross America as another intrepid Sarah tries to make sense of the vast new country she's won. After a lifetime of winning nothing but the right to be designated driver, Sarah Darmody strikes it rich in a contest so bizarre most people think it's an urban legend - the Green Card lottery. Her prize: the right to live and work in America forever, all for less than the price of an instant Scratchie.But it's going to cost her much more. Fingerprinted, stripped, x-rayed, measured and investigated, she's warned that unless she commits serious time to her new country and uses her Green Card, she loses it. So, armed with an ugly red backpack, a tattered map, and a wad of hard-earned tips stuffed into her bra, she sets off to circumnavigate the continental US of A by way of another legendary American ticket to ride, the Greyhound bus - and to go where no tourist has even been before. However romantic it might look in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' Sarah soon discovers the Greyhound is more 'Midnight Cowboy' territory, favoured by the desperately poor, the despicably odoured and the dubiously paroled. But she gradually becomes at one with her new tribe as each trip becomes a private Jerry Springer show on wheels, filled with truly unforgettable characters and their stories. And as she is expelled into ever more amazing and improbable places, from New York to Santa Fe, Montana to Minnesota, New Orleans to Savannah, and is inexplicably drawn to a town called Truth or Consequences, she finds herself falling in love with the huge, unwieldy, crazy, ugly, beautiful and mixed-up kid that is the US of A, along with an addiction to airconditioning, fried food and the great American refrain: "I gots rights!'. In the tradition of HOLY COW! and NOTES FROM A SMALL ISLAND, this is travel writing at its best - edge-of-your-seat, funny, deliciously insightful and thoroughly addictive.
