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 Keisuke*s 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.

Maggie is one of the most known works of the author. This story, perfectly laid out in New York's Bowery, dealt with doings and sayings of the people of the slums,—a reflection of the scenes and actions of city life as Crane saw it. While this work made no great impression on the general public, it brought the author to the attention of many literary men, especially William Dean Howells and Hamlin Garland, who encouraged Crane and helped him whenever they could find opportunity.

This harrowing tale of a young girl in the slums is a searing portrayal of turn-of-the-century New York, and Stephen Crane's most innovative work. Published in 1893, when the author was just twenty-one, it broke new ground with its vivid characters, its brutal naturalism, and its empathic rendering of the lives of the poor. It remains both powerful, severe, and harshly comic (in Alfred Kazin's words) and a masterpiece of modern American prose. This edition includes Maggie and George's Mother, Crane's other Bowery tales, and the most comprehensive available selection of Crane's New York journalism. All texts in this volume are presented in their definitive versions.

New York Times Notable Book: “Yoon writes stories the way Fabergé made eggs: with untold craftsmanship, artistry, and delicacy.” —Ann Patchett An NPR “Best Debut Fiction” and a Los Angeles Times “Favorite Fiction” selection Spanning over half a century—from the years just before the Korean War to the present—these stories reveal an intricate and unforgettable portrait of a single island in the South Pacific. Novelistic in scope, daring in its varied environments, Once the Shore is a remarkable work of international fiction by the acclaimed author of Snow Hunters. “So persuasive are Yoon’s powers of invention that I went searching for his Solla Island somewhere off the mainland of South Korea—not realizing that it exists only in this breathtaking collection of eight interlinked stories . . . a fully formed, deftly executed debut.” —San Francisco Chronicle “These are lovely stories, rendered with a Chekhovian elegance. They span from post-World War II to the new millennium, with characters of different ethnicities, yet each story has a timelessness and relevance that’s haunting and unforgettable.” —Don Lee “Yoon’s collection of eight richly textured stories explore the themes of family, lost love, silence, alienation and the effects of the Japanese occupation and the Korean War on the poor communities of a small South Korean island . . . Yoon’s stories are introspective and tender while also painting with bold strokes the details of the lives of the invisible.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
