The Wooden Sea by Jonathan Carroll

People appear who may not be people, things happen that might not have really happened, and the answers provided may be merely lies. McCabe does not know if the tricks before his eyes originate from the heavens, outer space, drugs, or future technology, but for the reader these tricks make the fictional small town of Crane's View, New York continually interesting.


We Owe You Nothing: Punk Planet, The Collected Interviews by Daniel Sinker, ed.

It was the 'rules and regulations' of punk aesthetic, sound, and lifestyle that limited its potential and undermined its intention to be a culture more enlightened then the powdered and corporate-sponsored products.


Whose Improv Is It Anyway? Beyond Second City by Amy E. Seham

It's designed to make you think about what you laugh at.


Water in Darkness by Daniel Buckman

...a gritty tale rendered with tough, spare prose that fits the story like a flak jacket.


Women in Dada:  Essays on Sex, Gender and Identity by Naomi Sawelson-Gorse (editor)

Not only does it paint a startling but credible image of the misogyny of well-respected practitioners like Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp, it focuses on women Dadaists, who blow all misconceptions out of the proverbial water.


Washington by Meg Greenfield

'Washington' dissects the media, the politician, 'the policy dingdongs on the seventh floor' and the social elite. No weasel words here. Meg Greenfield never dulls her scalpel while dissecting the town and its inhabitants.


The Wind Done Gone by Alice Randall

Depending on whom you ask, Nashville author Alice Randall's novel - a pseudo diary, really, of Scarlett O'Hara's mulatto half-sister, Cynara - is a parody of 'Gone With the Wind', a sacrilegious retelling of a literary classic or a revisionist history of a vastly overrated, racist melodrama.
