About this deal

You had to do it for yourself,” Steve says. His voice is quiet, like he knows exactly what’s running through the dark waterways of Billy’s head: Max, alone with his dad. Susan a silent, unobtrusive shadow in the other room. Cheung, King-Kok. Articulate Silences: Hisaye Yamamoto, Maxine Hong Kingston, Joy Kogawa. Ithaca, N.Y.: Cornell University Press, 1993. In her chapter on Kingston, Cheung notes the way in which historical and parental silence provokes the author to use her imagination to create possible versions of stories that her taciturn parents refuse to convey. Throughout the story there were themes of devil worship, witches and demons that gave the mystery an edge of horror and upped the creep factor, which I really enjoyed. He’s still talking when Billy opens his eyes and sees that Steve’s face is closer than he thought; that his mouth is almost level with Billy’s ear. Billy doesn’t wait for Steve to stop talking; he doesn’t even think about it until afterwards, how the dead weight that was his limbs had lifted almost as soon as he leaned over to kiss Steve mid-sentence and it suddenly became easier to breathe. It’s not a good kiss; his face is too wet, his hands sweaty, and his body suddenly as ungainly as it was when he was fourteen and he still didn’t know how to be kissed or touched or even loved and so he fumbles, clashing their teeth together painfully. He keeps his eyes closed when it’s over, waiting for Steve to thump him with a fist, a foot, Maxine’s skateboard. It’s what Billy himself would do, if it were the other way around.

If you are looking for a binge worthy, original crime thriller, then look no further than The Bleeding by Johana Gustawsson. It’s a haunting gothic novel about three women, spanning three eras, across two countries. Gustawsson weaves historical fact and fiction with a modern day murder mystery. Ultimately, it’s a story of women who will stop at nothing to protect the ones they love. The writing is sublime; the plot is intricate and so deliciously dark. Don’t say that,” Steve chides gently. “You made it this far. One more step gets you closer to where you wanna go.”This story is told from the perspective of three women in three different timelines: Maxine in 2002, Lina in 1949, and Lucienne in 1899.

We suggest limiting the amount of time that your chonk is riding in The Maxine One to no longer than 45-60 minutes before taking a break. On the first day of spring, Neil is at his new job, working over-time at a factory that produces weaponry parts commissioned by the United States Army. Susan—a self-described introvert and homebody—has finally seen fit to leave the protective cocoon of her bedroom; she’s out getting her nails done. It had been Billy’s idea, although he had to work hard to make her believe it was really her idea: telling her, you need a break, Suze, raising two kids can’t be easy. It’s true. None of them—Max, Susan, his father—are his problem anymore. He’s free, like that Lynyrd Skynyrd song: free as a bird, and this bird you cannot change.

Symbolism provides substance for two of the five stories in The Woman Warrior. At the beginning of "Shaman," Brave Orchid is attending medical school after having spent the last decade or more of her adult life serving her husband and family as a traditional Chinese woman. When her fellow students challenge her to investigate a dormitory room that is supposedly haunted, she accepts the dare and spends the night in the room. The next day, she claims to have fought a fierce battle with "Sitting Ghost." She tells her friends that it still threatens them and convinces the girls to help her fight and conquer it. The group holds a ritual that rids the room of the dangerous spirit. This act symbolizes Brave Orchid's battle with the confining role of Chinese women. Steve grins at him, pulling his shirt out of his belt and for an alarming moment Billy thinks he’s going to take it off—then he realizes that Steve’s just using the material to soak up the sweat collecting on his temples. His eyes are immediately drawn to the thatch of dark hair that leads past the button of Steve’s jeans, contrasting nicely with the pale purple of his polo. Kill the kid. He doesn’t want to look away, but it’s not like he has a say in that. Kill that fat little queer dead. You'll first notice it out of the corner of your eye: the woman in shades, awkwardly pointing her smartphone camera in your direction. She thinks she's sneaky—she's not. Then you'll catch the gentle awws as you walk down the street, until it starts to get more intense. Soon, people stop you with questions or to ask for a picture. Kudos to Johana for bringing a wonderfully complex tale and several historical periods to life. Congrats to the translator David Warriner for a chillingly good translation ( I have read the French and the nuances and shadows have been captured perfectly. The only thing I prefered about the French was the title. The English one is just a bit too gory and just reminds me of dripping blood and hospitals. That’s just me being squeamish perhaps. Forget the title, just head inside the covers….
