    A man discovers an incredible talent for painting after a freak accident in which he loses an arm. He moves to a "new life" in Duma Key, off Florida's West Coast - a deserted strip, part beach, part weed-tangled reef, owned by a patroness of the arts whose twin sisters went missing in the 1920s. Here, Freemantle is inspired to paint the amazing sunsets. But soon the paintings become predictive, even dangerous.

    In Unfamiliar Fishes, Sarah Vowell argues that 1898 might be a year just as crucial to our nation's identity, a year when, in an orgy of imperialism, the United States annexed Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and Guam, and invaded Cuba and then the Philippines, becoming a meddling, self-serving, militaristic international superpower practically overnight. Of all the countries the United States invaded or colonized in 1898, Vowell considers the story of the Americanization of Hawaii to be the most intriguing.

    In the opening scene of Falling Man, Keith Neudecker emerges from the smoke and ash of the burning tower where he worked, and makes his way to the apartment of his ex-wife and young son uptown. Throughout this bold and haunting novel, DeLillo traces the way the events of September 11 kindled or rekindled relationships, reconfigured our emotional landscape, our memory, and our perception of the world.

    No one in town knows for sure why Don Maddox remains in the small town of Black Falls, Massachusetts - or why a man with no law-enforcement background took a part-time patrolman's position on a police force more feared than trusted. What is known is that he has been asking a lot of questions in his off-hours about the cops' activities and about the recent incursion of crystal meth into the area. But why is he so concerned with the sudden disappearance of a local sex offender?

    New Yorkers Michael, a famous writer, and Lizzie, a journalist, travel to Italy with their friends from Maine: Finn, his wife Taylor, and their daughter, Snow. 'From the beginning' says Taylor, 'it was a conspiracy for Lizzie and Finn to be together.' Told in alternating points of view, the characters expose and stumble upon lies and infidelities past and present. Snow, 10 years old and precociously drawn into a far more adult drama, becomes the catalyst for catastrophe.
