[A] heartbreaking novel about the devastations of severed attachments.” —NPR For Clay Blackall, a lifelong resident of Providence, Rhode Island, the place has become an obsession. Here live the only people who can explain what happened to his brother, Eli, whose suicide haunts this heartbreaking, hilarious novel-in-fragments. A failed actor impersonates a former movie star; an ex-con looks after a summer home perched atop a rock in the bay; a broken-hearted salutatorian airs thirteen years’ worth of dirty laundry at his school’s commencement; an adjunct struggles to make room for her homeless and self-absorbed mother while revisiting a scandalous high school love affair; a recent widower, with the help of a clever teen, schemes to rid his condo’s pond of Canada geese. Clay compiles their stories, invasively providing context in the form of notes that lead always, somehow, back to Eli. Behind Clay’s possibly insane, definitely doomed, and increasingly suspect task burns his desire to understand his brother’s death, and the city that has defined and ruined them both. Full of brainy detours and irreverent asides, Exes is a powerful investigation of grief, love, and our deeply held yet ever-changing notions of home.

Sheridan, Kendall, and Asia first bonded when they met seven years ago at a church prayer support group and now, their friendship has blossomed into a strong sisterhood. They've helped each other through the tragedies of their breakups and together, they've celebrated their triumphs. But now, their exes are back, wreaking havoc on lives they've work so hard to rebuild. Sheridan has found love again after her ex-husband left her for a man. But old wounds are reopened when her ex-husband appears with his fiancée—a woman! And all of Sheridan's insecurities and doubts come rushing back. Kendall's former husband is now married to Kendall's sister, Sabrina. And though Kendall has refused to interact with either one in the last seven years, she's forced to reunite with Sabrina when their father is diagnosed with cancer. Asia has done her best to move away from her married boyfriend, a former star with the LA Lakers. But when they share a kiss, old desires are rekindled and Asia decides that it's time for her and Bobby Johnson to get back together again. With her trademark writing that “has the kind of momentum that prompts you to elbow disbelief aside and flip the pages in horrified enjoyment” (The Washington Post), Forever an Ex is Murray's best novel yet.

“It is an easy thing to rule by fear.” It’s been years since the tidal wave of ex-humans washed over the world. Since then, thanks to St George and his fellow heroes, the community known as the Mount has been the last known outpost of safety, sanity, and freedom left to humanity. But even for the Mount, survival still balances on a razor’s edge—and after a disaster decimates the town’s food supply, the heroes must make a risky gamble to keep its citizens from starving. And then the news arrives of a strange, man-made island in the middle of the Pacific. An island populated not just by survivors, but by people who seem to be farming, raising children, living—people who, like the heroes, have somehow managed to keep the spark of civilization alive. Paying this place a visit should be a simple goodwill mission, but as the island reveals itself to be a sinister mirror-image of what the heroes have built at the Mount, the cost of their good intentions becomes dangerously high.

Ein literarischer Thriller, der einen nicht mehr loslässt! Susan Morrow hat gelernt, immer ja zu sagen. Nicht aufzubegehren, mitzuspielen, die Dinge hinzunehmen, wie sie sind: den Ehemann, der Herzchirurg ist, nur seine Karriere im Blick hat und sie wahrscheinlich mit einer Arzthelferin betrügt. Die Ehe, die unbemerkt immer mehr in die Brüche geht. Ihre Pflichten als Hausfrau und Mutter. Da erhält sie eines Tages Post von ihrem Exmann Edward, von dem sie seit zwanzig Jahren nichts mehr gehört hat. Als sie ihn damals verließ, war er ein angehender Schriftsteller, voller hochfliegender Pläne. Jetzt hat er ihr das Manuskript eines Romans geschickt, und widerstrebend beginnt sie, es zu lesen. Es ist die zutiefst verstörende Geschichte des Mathematikprofessors Tony Hastings, dessen Frau und Tochter auf der gemeinsamen Fahrt in den Urlaub entführt und grausam ermordet werden. Es ist die Geschichte eines Mannes, dessen ganzes Leben zerbricht, weil er gelernt hat, immer vernünftig zu bleiben. Weil er verlernt hat, sich zu wehren. Und weil er nicht glauben will, dass seine schlimmsten Ängste wirklich wahr werden könnten. Unaufhaltsam gerät Susan in den Sog dieses beklemmenden Romans. Und je weiter sie liest, desto mehr beginnt sie zu ahnen, dass Edward vielleicht gar nicht ihre Meinung über sein Manuskript einholen will. Dass er vielmehr auf raffiniert verschlüsselte Weise von ihr selbst erzählt ...

The second novel in Peter Clines' bestselling Ex series. It's been two years since the plague of ex-humans decimated mankind. Two years since the superheroes St. George, Cerberus, Zzzap, and Stealth gathered Los Angeles’s survivors behind the walls of their fortress, the Mount. Since then, the heroes have been fighting to give the Mount’s citizens hope, and something like a real life. But now supplies are growing scarce, the zombies are pressing in . . . and the heroes are wondering how much longer they can hold out. Then hope arrives in the form of a surviving US Army battalion--and not just any battalion. The men and women of the Army's Project Krypton survived the outbreak because they are super-soldiers, created before mankind's fall to be better, stronger, faster than normal humans--and their secure base in Arizona beckons as a much needed refuge for the beleaguered heroes and their charges. But a dark secret lies at the heart of Project Krypton, and those behind it wield an awesome and terrifying power.

Lisa Roberty is a successful screenwriter with an impoverished social life who’s enduring a demoralizing job at the mind-numbing sitcom You Go, Girl. Grant Repka is an obscure indie rock musician who, in his forties, finds his career surprisingly resurrected with the success of his comic operetta about the doomed romance of Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson. When Grant and Lisa meet after one of his shows, sparks don’t immediately fly—but e-mail addresses are exchanged. A my-book-for-your-CD trade and a couple of e-mails later, Lisa tells Grant that she enjoys his song “My Psycho Ex,” but warns him that where psycho-exes are concerned, she’s pretty sure she “could drink him under the table.” Little does she know that this will become the opening salvo in an epic e-mail battle dubbed the Psycho Ex Game, a storytelling competition in which horrific tales of dysfunctional love and living with lunatics are volleyed with glee. The rules are simple; the point system, unique: the experiences that would normally leave someone running for the therapist’s office (humiliation, degradation, and complicity in psychotic behavior) just might win match point in the Psycho Ex Game. Now it’s Grant vs. Lisa as the wretched tales of his ex, the Junkie Queen of Darkness, vie with the woe inflicted by her ex, a tantrum-throwing actor/director widely known as Mr. Summer Box Office Record-Holder. As the correspondence evolves, it surprises Lisa by offering her the kind of intimacy she has never shared with a man in the same room. Before long, what started as a friendly competition becomes a road map to an unlikely couple’s growing involvement, leaving both Grant and Lisa secretly wondering, “If we were to get involved, which one of us is potentially the next Psycho Ex?” Written in alternating he said/she said chapters, The Psycho Ex Game is shot through with the acerbic humor of Merrill Markoe and the mordant observations that have made Andy Prieboy a literate voice in rock. The Psycho Ex Game is a hilarious dissection of injuries sustained on the front lines of romance—and the careful nursing that gets us battleready once again. From the Hardcover edition.

The fourth novel in Peter Clines' bestselling Ex series. When he’s awake, George Bailey is just an ordinary man. Five days a week he coaxes his old Hyundai to life, curses the Los Angeles traffic, and clocks in at his job as a handyman at the local college. But when he sleeps, George dreams of something more. George dreams of flying. He dreams of fighting monsters. He dreams of a man made of pure lightning, an armored robot, a giant in an army uniform, a beautiful woman who moves like a ninja. Then one day as he’s walking from one fix-it job to the next, a pale girl in a wheelchair tells George of another world, one in which civilization fell to a plague that animates the dead…and in which George is no longer a glorified janitor, but one of humanity’s last heroes. Her tale sounds like madness, of course. But as George’s dreams and his waking life begin bleeding together, he starts to wonder—which is the real world, and which is just fantasy?

Für den Blick von »ganz unten« begab sich der Wiener Journalist Max Winter vor hundert Jahren in die Welt der Wiener Elendsklasse. Seine Sozialreportagen zeigten Wirkung. Er liess sich als Obdachloser verkleidet ins Polizeigefängnis werfen, arbeitete als Statist in der Hofoper, als Kulissenschieber im Burgtheater und als »Schreiber bei Harry Sheff«, einer Kolportageromanfabrik. Rollenreportagen machten es ihm möglich, nicht von aussen, sondern von innen den Alltag Benachteiligter zu schildern. Dabei war die gesamte Monarchie sein Einsatzgebiet. Recherchen führten ihn in die Industriegebiete der Steiermark, zu den mährisch-schlesischen Webern oder den böhmischen Fabrikarbeitern. Der Journalismus, wie Max Winter ihn verstand, ist nicht bloss Schreib(tisch)arbeit. Obwohl er seine Artikel akribisch mit wissenschaftlichen Ergebnissen, Statistiken und amtlichen Sozialberichten, Akten und Archivmaterial untermauerte, sicherten seine unkonventionellen Vor-Ort-Recherchen qualitative Standards, die nichts an Gültigkeit verloren haben. Seine Verkleidungen und das unerkannte Einschleichen in fremde Milieus, der maskierte Gang in die Welt der gesellschaftlichen Aussenseiter und Unterdrückten, liessen Max Winter Elend und Unrecht unmittelbar am eigenen Leib spüren. Er wählte diesen Weg, um nach der Überwindung von Recherchebarrieren in Terrains vorzudringen, die dem Journalisten verwehrt geblieben wären. Die Enthüllung von Missständen gelang durch Verkleidung. Was die »Muckraker« in den USA taten, leistete Max Winter, methodisch ein Wallraff der k.u.k.-Monarchie, in Wien: Er beschrieb die inoffizielle Realität der Grossstadt, den Alltag der niederen sozialen Schichten der Monarchie von unten.
