Alex Bushnell´s life was bland, carefree, and safe, working for a medium-sized San Francisco newspaper, until one night it went all wrong. A chance meeting with a girl at a party, a single night of excess, and suddenly Alex´s life spiraled out of control. Hooked on heroin and a girl he can´t shake, Alex battles to find himself and the life he so quickly lost. All The Hippes Are Dead is a drug-fueled, sex-crazed coming-of-age novel like no other, placing Henning firmly in the cult-classic district of the literary map. 1. Language: English.

A steamy, best-selling tale of Long Island lust, written as a daring literary hoax by Newsday columnist Mike McGrady and two dozen of his colleagues. For talk show host Gillian Blake, the suburbs have long been a paradise. On the radio, she and her husband are Gilly and Billy, local media stars and ´´New York’s Sweethearts of the Air´´. At home they’re the envy of their neighbors. Only in the bedroom is their life less than perfect. When Gillian learns that her husband has a mistress, she takes revenge the only way she can. With each lover she takes, her lust multiplies, until this demure housewife becomes a creature of pure passion. No man on Long Island - be he hippie, mobster, or rabbi - is safe when Gillian goes on the prowl. Written by 24 reporters under the moniker of Penelope Ashe, Naked Came the Stranger was an attempt to produce the steamiest and most wildly over-the-top novel of all time - good writing be damned. A sensation upon its first release, 40 years later the book remains one of the most sinfully amusing potboilers ever published. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lauren Fortgang.

October 21, 1967, Washington, D.C. 20,000 to 200,000 protesters are marching to end the war in Vietnam, while helicopters hover overhead and federal marshals and soldiers with fixed bayonets await them on the Pentagon steps. Among the marchers is Norman Mailer. From his own singular participation in the day´s events and his even more extraordinary perceptions comes a classic work that shatters the mould of traditional reportage. Intellectuals and hippies, clergymen and cops, poets and army MPs crowd the pages of a book in which facts are fused with techniques of fiction to create the nerve-end reality of experiential truth. The Armies of the Night uniquely and unforgettably captures the Sixties´ tidal wave of love and rage at its crest and a towering genius at his peak.
The Terrorists is the last Martin Beck mystery, finished just a few weeks before Per Wahlöö’s death. The book is, in effect, a marvelous summing up of the series. The story centers on the visit of an American senator to Stockholm. Martin Beck tries to protect him from an international gang of terrorists, while they decide that Beck too should be removed from the scene. Interwoven with this basic story are two fascinating subplots. One, a classic mini-mystery, is the story of a millionaire pornographer bludgeoned to death in his own bathtub. The other is the story of a young girl, a Swedish hippie caught up unexpectedly in the maze of police bureaucracy. As in other Martin Beck books, the plot comes together in a totally unexpected climax. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Weiner.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award Fifty years after the March on the Pentagon, Norman Mailer´s seminal tour de force remains as urgent and incisive as ever. Winner of America´s two highest literary awards, The Armies of the Night uniquely and unforgettably captures the Sixties´ tidal wave of love and rage at its crest and a towering genius at his peak. The time is October 21, 1967. The place is Washington, D.C. Depending on the paper you read, 20,000 to 200,000 protestors are marching to end the war in Vietnam, while helicopters hover overhead and federal marshals and soldiers with fixed bayonets await them on the Pentagon steps. Among the marchers is a writer named Norman Mailer. From his own singular participation in the day´s events and his even more extraordinary perceptions comes a classic work that shatters the mold of traditional reportage. Intellectuals and hippies, clergymen and cops, poets and army MPs crowd the pages of a book in which facts are fused with techniques of fiction to create the nerve-end reality of experiential truth. ´´[Mailer´s] genuine wit and bellicose charm, and his fervent and intense sense of legitimately caring, render The Armies of the Night an artful document, worthy to be judged as literature.´´-Time ´´Only a born novelist could have written a piece of history so intelligent, mischievous, penetrating and alive.´´-Alfred Kazin, The New York Times Book Review
Cardboard Gods is the memoir of Josh Wilker, a brilliant writer who has marked the stages of his life through the baseball cards he collected as a child. It also captures the experience of growing up obsessed with baseball cards and explores what it means to be a fan of the game. Along the way, as we get to know Josh, his family, and his friends, we also get Josh’s classic observations about the central artifacts from his life - the baseball cards themselves. Josh writes about an imagined correspondence with his favorite player, Carl Yastrzemski; he uses the magical bubble-blowing powers of journeyman Kurt Bevacqua to shed light on the weakening of the powerful childhood bond with his older brother; he considers the doomed utopian back-to-the-land dreams of his hippie parents against the backdrop of inimitable 1970s baseball figures such as ´´Designated Pinch Runner” Herb Washington and Mark ´´The Bird” Fidrych. Cardboard Gods is more than just the story of a man who can’t let go of his past, it’s proof that - to paraphrase Jim Bouton - as children we grow up holding baseball cards but in the end we realize that it’s really the other way around. 1.

Every other weekend, Hope and Eden - backpacks, Walkmans, and homework in hand - wait for their father to pick them up, as he always does, at a strip-mall bus stop. It´s the divorce shuffle; they´re used to it. Only this weekend, he´s screwed up, forgotten, and their world will irrevocably change when a stranger lures them into his truck with a false story and smile.More than 20 years later, Hope is that classic New York failure: a playwright with only one play produced long ago, newly evicted from an illegal sublet, working a humiliating temp job. Eden has long distanced herself from her family, and no one seems to know where she is.When the man who abducted them is up for parole, the girls might be able to offer testimony to keep him jailed. Hope sets out to find her sister - and to find herself - and it becomes the journey of a lifetime, taking her from hippie communes to cities across the country. Suspenseful and moving, Eden asks: How much do our pasts define us, and what price do we pay if we break free? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Teri Schnaubelt.
