Happy #BookBday (5/19/15 Edition)

#BookBdays mean cake & celebration! Today we party with these new releases:

BEACH TOWN by Mary Kay Andrews
Location scout Greer Hennessy has found the perfect undiscovered beach town for a big budget movie, but finds a formidable obstacle (and romantic interest) in the town mayor, Eben Thinadeaux. “Andrews expertly combines an intriguing love story with small-town quirkiness and cinematic action to highly entertaining effect.” — Booklist

THE SCARLET GOSPELS by Clive Barker
Pinhead is back! And once again he’s facing off with occult detective Harry D’Amour, in this long-awaited epic that ranges from the dark corners of New York to the pits of hell. “THE SCARLET GOSPELS is Barker at his most unhinged and indulgent…beneath the mountain of outré horrors, there’s a weird humor underpinning Barker’s work, a droll self-awareness and a riotous, do-not-go-quietly energy. It’s a tasty delight.” — Entertainment Weekly

LIFTED BY THE GREAT NOTHING by Karim Dimechkie
“Dimechkie’s character-driven coming-of-age novel is less about the immigrant experience than about a literal and figurative journey of self-discovery. It is also a love story between father and son, yes, but also between Max and the older woman doctor who lives across the street. And in a novel featuring Lebanon, it is no surprise that politics and social justice also play a part. All of these disparate elements come together seamlessly as Max struggles to deal with the new realities of his life.”
— Booklist

HEAD CASE: My Brain and Other Wonders by Cole Cohen
A spirited, wry, and utterly original memoir about one woman’s struggle to make her way and set up a life after doctors discover something unusual in her brain. “A lemon-size hole in her brain prevents Cohen from accurately judging time and space but not from writing beautifully. Though her specific condition is extremely rare, it’s very easy to identify with her and to cheer for her.” — Booklist
