Longing for Something Bigger From the Eisner Award-nominated Inio Asano, creator of Solanin and Nijigahara Holograph, comes one of his most challenging works yet; an intense teen romance set in what may at first glance be one of the sleepiest places in Japan. When Koume and Keisukeļ¼Šs relationship begins to take shape, it is apparent that they are both searching for something. Maybe Keisuke wants something more than a kiss from the fair Koume. Maybe Koume is looking for someone better than Misaki, the local playboy. But what they find in each other over the course of a summer might be far greater than anything they were expecting. Their lives are going to change. And this will all transpire before high school exams!

'This enjoyable novel captures "communal living". Everyday difficulties experienced by residents due to their age and health are more meaningful to the reader than a diagnostic inventory would be.' - Dementia: The International Journal of Social Research and Practice 'Uniquely for our library, a work of fiction focusing on older people who need care. This book tells the story of a young girl who begins work as a care worker in a residential home for older people many of whom have dementia. Aimed at teenagers and care workers of all ages, it creatively explores the problems of dementia.' - Ageing Matters When Gemma gets the job as a support worker at The Beacon, a residential unit with a difference, little does she realize how much impact she is to have on the lives of its residents and how they, in turn, will shape her own. Dividing her time between sailing in her boat Periwinkle, a parting gift from her boyfriend Adam, and her work at The Beacon, Gemma gets to know all the residents and their stories. But as winter arrives a dramatic storm and uncertainty over the future of the home threaten to disrupt the peace - can The Beacon survive? Showing how a caring community can be much more than a place where people wait to die, The Girl on the Shore is not just an absorbing tale - it's a `must read' for teenagers, adults of all ages, carers and all those with an older person in their life.

Following a nuclear holocaust, women have used advanced technology to expel men from their cities, bringing them back only for purposes of loveless reproduction under the guise of powerful goddesses.

As Birana and her reluctant male protector Arvil grow closer, their feelings for each other just might mend their fractured world-if they somehow manage to survive.

"The prerequisite to being truthful to yourself is to feel connection with another. Simple, everyday stories we all experience should be written in simple, everyday language we all use. The best stories deal with the small concerns of life and you don't need fancy words for that. These stories tell us about the diversity and story-worthiness of ordinary people. They speak to our sense of closeness--and above all, to our spacious sense of possibility. It is extraordinary how extraordinary the ordinary person is. And even more extraordinary is the number of stories they are carrying around--waiting to be written." Gerry Di Gesu believes that man is inherently good, that God is a best friend who doesn't give answers, and that the beauty and order of nature are our greatest guides to sensibility and serenity. She knows there's a bright spot in most dark situations in life if we look hard enough, and that without a sense of humor, especially directed at ourselves, we do not survive.

For public library clerk Diane Anderson, reading romance novels and living vicariously is far easier than attracting a flesh-and-blood man of her own. It seems she's too voluptuous in the wrong places to attract the kind of black man her mama requires as a son-in-law. . .and just exotic enough to attract the kind of white man Mama forbids. But there's something about that lost-looking guy who comes into the library one afternoon. And when he reveals that Diane is his muse, well, she can't help being intrigued. . . After months spent mourning a personal tragedy, novelist Jack Browning is struggling to get back to work. Under pressure to write his second novel, Jack hits the library for ideas. The clerk who helps him is smart, sassy--and curvy in all the right places. He finds himself thinking of Diane as he creates the heroine of his book. And soon, she's knocking down the wall he'd built around himself, becoming the inspiration for his art. . .and maybe even for his life. . . "Murray writes a gentle romance about cultural differences and deep commonalities in a unique tale about white-black relationships." --Booklist

Indra Levy introduces a new archetype in the study of modern Japanese literature: the "Westernesque femme fatale," an alluring figure who is ethnically Japanese but evokes the West in her physical appearance, lifestyle, behavior, and, most important, her use of language. She played conspicuous roles in landmark works of modern Japanese fiction and theater. Levy traces the lineage of the Westernesque femme fatale from her first appearance in the vernacularist fiction of the late 1880s to her development in Naturalist fiction of the mid-1900s and, finally, to her spectacular embodiment by the modern Japanese actress in the early 1910s with the advent of Naturalist theater. In all cases the Westernesque femme fatale both attracts and confounds the self-consciously modern male intellectual through a convention-defying use of language. What does this sirenlike figure reveal about the central concerns of modern Japanese literature? Levy proposes that the Westernesque femme fatale be viewed as the hallmark of an intertextual exoticism that prizes the strange beauty of modern Western writing. By illuminating the exoticist impulses that gave rise to this archetype, Levy offers a new understanding of the relationships between vernacular style and translation, original and imitation, and writing and performance within a cross-cultural context. A seamless blend of narrative, performance, translation, and gender studies, this work will have a profound impact on the critical discourse on this formative period of modern Japanese literature.
