Maggie Brown & Others

Maggie Brown & Others

In this powerful and virtuosic collection of interlocking stories, each one “a marvel of concision and compassion” (Washington Post), a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist and “master of his form” (New York Times) takes the short story to new heights.

Through forty-four compressed gems, Peter Orner, a writer who “doesn’t simply bring his characters to life, he gives them souls” (NYT Book Review), chronicles people whose lives are at inflection points, gripping us with a series of defining moments.

Whether it’s a first date that turns into a late-night road trip to a séance in an abandoned airplane hangar, or a family’s memories of the painful mystery surrounding a neglected uncle’s demise, Orner reveals how our fleeting decisions between kindness and abandonment chase us across time. These stories are anchored by a poignant novella that delivers not only the joys and travails of a forty-year marriage, but an entire era in a working-class New England city. Bristling with the crackling energy of life itself, Maggie Brown & Others marks the most sustained achievement to date for “a master of his form” (New York Times).

Brown Girl in the Ring

Brown Girl in the Ring

In this “impressive debut” from award-winning speculative fiction author Nalo Hopkinson, a young woman must solve the tragic mystery surrounding her family and bargain with the gods to save her city and herself. (The Washington Post)

The rich and privileged have fled the city, barricaded it behind roadblocks, and left it to crumble. The inner city has had to rediscover old ways — farming, barter, herb lore. But now the monied need a harvest of bodies, and so they prey upon the helpless of the streets. With nowhere to turn, a young woman must open herself to ancient truths, eternal powers, and the tragic mystery surrounding her mother and grandmother. She must bargain with gods, and give birth to new legends.

Believing

Sandra Brown revisits two pivotal Christmases from her own past in this heartfelt and intimate essay. One needn’t be familiar with Brown’s previous works to be deeply moved by this personal reflection on the meaning of family, faith, celebration, and generosity: but fans will find it a unique and special insight into the New York Times Bestselling author’s life and values.

“If I were to open my Christmas memory box and peer inside, two would stand out from the rest. One would be the Christmas of my sixth year. Perhaps this is the first Christmas of memory and that’s why it distinguishes itself in my recollections. The other would be a Christmas much more recent. Only one of these Christmases was happy, as the dictionary defines the word. But in the other, I found a unique joy. These two holidays were celebrated in different locations, with different family members. One was observed through the eyes of a child, while the other was experienced from the perspective of an adult. These Christmases were separated by decades. They actually had nothing in common except the date on the calendar and, for me, the debatable existence of Santa Claus . . . .” — Sandra Brown (an excerpt from Believing)

This essay is based on musings originally published in Ladies Home Journal. 20 years later, Sandra Brown revisits these powerful memories, creating the moving essay heard here, which she delivers in her charming Southern voice, as warm and comforting as a mug of cocoa in view of the Christmas tree.

Arthur's Audio Favorites, Volume 1

Arthur's Audio Favorites, Volume 1

by Marc Brown Read by Marc Brown
Arthur’s adventures are now available on audio. This special collection includes:

ARTHUR’S FIRST SLEEPOVER: What could top a sleepover in the backyard with Buster and the Brain? When rumors start that a spaceship has landed in the neighborhood the idea of camping under the stars takes on a whole new meaning. Arthur’s sister D.W. is so sure that he will see an alien on his overnight that she gives him her camera. When they hear muffled footsteps approaching their tent and see strange flashes of light, it seems D.W. was right! Or was she?

ARTHUR’S TOOTH: Arthur, tired of being the only one in his class who still has all his baby teeth, waits impatiently for his loose tooth to fall out.

ARTHUR’S BIRTHDAY: Arthur’s friends must decide which party to attend when Francine schedules her birthday party for the same day as Arthur’s birthday party.

ARTHUR’S PET BUSINESS: Arthur’s determination to prove he is responsible enough to have a puppy brings him a menagerie of animals to care for.

ARTHUR’S NEW PUPPY: Arthur is delighted when he finally gets his new puppy, Pal, but his “accidents” and all-night barking make life miserable for the entire family, until Arthur comes up with a solution.

ARTHUR WRITES A STORY: What makes a story entertaining? That’s the question Arthur asks himself when Mr. Ratburn gives a creative writing assignment to the class. When D.W. yawns through Arthur’s first story, he worries that his tale isn’t exciting enough. Is the setting to humdrum? Maybe he needs to research his subject more thoroughly. With every new angle, Arthur’s story takes one more hilarious step further away from his original idea — but is the end result really the tale he wants to tell?
