The Fourth of July, by Kevin Dowd
Praise for Kevin Dowd’s
The Fourth of July
The Fourth of July reminded me of such gin-soaked comic classics as A Confederacy of Dunces and The Ginger Man. Dowd’s hero, Jack Smith, joins the rank of those lovable rogues, a man who spends his summer tippling into all sorts of trouble with only the best intentions. I laughed out loud.

author The Last To Go
Digging Up The Bones, by Dale Marlowe
This collection of linked stories follows the curses of a father, visited upon the Nash family over the course of three generations, spanning the 1960′s to the present. In rich, moving episodes, readers engage the lives of stunned-straight racists, scarred veterans, doomed lovers, would-be assassins, gun-toting grandmothers, nascent female crime-bosses, ambivalent mourners, big-time drug-running, and bewildered survivors trying to make sense of it all. This is not a family—it’s a world; this is not a book—it’s an indictment; these words are not written—they’re howled.
Praise for Jaime Clarke’s
Jaime Clarke’s tautly suspenseful novel is a cautionary tale for writers and readers alike—after finishing it, you may start to think that J.D. Salinger had the right idea after all.
— Tom Perrotta, author of Election,
Little Children, and The Leftovers
