The Same River Twice
By Mooney, Ted

The Same River Twice

When Odile, a French clothing designer, agrees to help smuggle Communist folk art out of the former Soviet Union, she bargains only on cash payment and a few days' inconvenience. But by the time she returns home and delivers the contraband to Turner, the scheme's mastermind, her fellow courier has disappeared in transit, her apartment has been ransacked, and she has set in motion events that will endanger everyone she holds dear.

Swamplandia!
By Russell, Karen


Swamplandia!The Bigtree alligator wrestling dynasty is in decline, and Swamplandia!, its island home and gator-wrestling theme park, is swiftly being encroached upon by a competitor. To save her family, Ava must journey on her own to a perilous part of the swamp called the Underworld.

Against a backdrop of hauntingly fecund plant life animated by ancient lizards and lawless hungers, Karen Russell has written an utterly singular novel about a family's struggle to stay afloat in a world that is inexorably sinking. An arrestingly beautiful and inventive work from a vibrant new voice in fiction.
