By Richard Rapp
Sam Brandeis is a desperate yet determined man when he makes a life-changing decision to leave his homeland where Cossacks are killing and raping Jews. After he and his wife, Eva, say their last prayer on the Sabbath from their shtetl, they escape with their young daughter on a ship bound for New York City, where Sam secures work and a home in Manhattan. After a horrible tragedy takes the life of a dear friend, Sam and Eva relocate to Brooklyn where he builds a successful business. As his family grows and Sam ages to become a grandfather for the first time, there is no question that Sam has realized the American dream.

Richard Rapp spends his youth within the shadow of his grandfather’s wisdom, love, and genius, as their shared philosophies, hopes, and dreams for America and Palestine strengthen their kinship. When Richard turns twenty, he joins the struggle for an Israeli state despite his parents’ objections, where he soon finds love, his true identity, and a purpose he cannot wait to share with his grandfather.

A Box of Sand is a historical tale based in part on real-life experiences as a young man is helped on his journey of self-discovery by the wisdom and strength of his grandfather.

Three men—Seward Caprice, Joel Marlin, and Paul Drake—live their lives like so many others. There is nothing particularly spectacular about any of them. Each man loves, fears, and hates. Each man is haunted by the challenges that linger in his own mind, and each must find a way to maintain control. The difference lies only in how they choose to deal with this assigned task, this task of life. Often, Seward, Joel, and Paul dabble in self-destruction. They use self-abuse to keep their wild minds in check, and in this abuse, they find control—or do they? Soon appears a mysterious figure known only as “Salem.” Salem is an aristocratic madman who seems to have no background, no history. He just suddenly appears, and his dark mission for each man becomes clear. The three must now walk separate paths, all at the bidding of Salem. He exists as a stalking shadow that pushes each man toward an uncertain, and possibly disastrous, future. The dull lives of Seward, Joel, and Paul are now laced with uncertainty and deceit. Will these men find the way back to themselves or will the challenge of life be too much to bear?

After Hurricane Sandy destroys Seaside Heights’ Magic Pier, midlevel real estate lawyer Drake Garrison is compelled to return to his former place of employment to help rebuild it, just as his first child is about to be born. As the months go by, he struggles to balance the demands of two jobs, his home life and his friends’ bowling team, as the business leaders and politicians around him seek financial help from a Washington overrun with people who would rather let livelihoods be destroyed than allocate the funds to help them. Meanwhile, the clock is ticking the seconds to summer 2013, and the economic disaster that could follow the actual one if everyone doesn’t do their part. Magic Pier revisits characters first introduced in 2008’s My Evil Twin and I, only older, (somewhat) wiser and without all that evil-twin nonsense.

In his seductive and poignant new novel, Terry Gavin, the author of Shaving Without a Razor and When Men Are Young, returns to the Midwest, a region whose moral ambivalence he continues to explore. The time is the late eighties. Two teenagers, Mike Warner and Tommy Alvin, are upon a new decade and new lives; their voices envelop readers with the pneumatic backbeat of spirited dialogue and heartwarming circumstance. As Mike takes off one week before his high school graduation, he crosses paths with nineteen-year-old Tommy, a man who dreams of superstardom yet lacks the will to take the first step.

The youths navigate the treacherous yet exhilarating waters of change, sometimes with success, other times with heartbreaking failure. In short, the two characters are connected in the only way people can be when fate brings them together and plays its inevitable game of chance.

What drives a 13-year-old trapeze artist to run away from the circus? Marco Spolini seeks freedom from an overbearing father, critical stepmother and smothering uncle. A journey of discovery takes him from New York to Los Angeles across a 1980 America beset by economic and political frustration.

Accompanied by a 15-year-old multiracial street kid named Jimmy Q and hunted by a relentless female private eye, Marco encounters a legless Vietnam veteran dealing drugs while writing country songs, a former porn star married to a televangelist, a widowed truck driver hauling a bizarre secret, a four-person softball team featuring three statuesque women, an Iranian refugee pursuing the American dream in New Mexico, an intellectual motorcycle gang and a California whose dark side matches its legendary sunshine.

A Huckleberry Finn for our time, Flight of the Spumonis offers a satiric, moving look at an America in transition and the timeless human quest for community.

“It’s pure pleasure to enter the mind and heart of Holy Denver’s soulful, sympathetic protagonist, Elizabeth Zwelland. Throughout this unique story—in which the author skillfully blends the economic downturn, Beat poetics, and the Columbine High School shooting—I wanted to hug Elizabeth, have coffee with her, and cheer her on.”

Kasey Jueds, author of Keeper and winner of the 2012 Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize

It’s 2009, the height of the economic crash, and thirty-six-year-old Elizabeth Zwelland has come down in the world. Due to fallout from Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme, she loses her prestigious Manhattan publishing job and is forced to move to Colorado, the home of her Beat-poet father. The only job Elizabeth can find is at an independent bookstore in downtown Denver, where she earns minimum wage and shelves the books she once edited.

Embittered by her many losses, Elizabeth becomes increasingly scornful of her coworkers and the bookstore’s customers. Her behavior leads to a shocking confrontation, which forces her on a deep emotional journey that includes entering the Columbine tragedy and the JonBenét Ramsey murder. Elizabeth’s awakening occurs not by following a particular religion, but by living through painful events and opening up to life in Denver—or Holy Denver, as Jack Kerouac christened the city in On the Road.
