Serial meets Ruth Ware’s In A Dark, Dark Wood in this inventive and twisty psychological thriller about a megahit podcast that reopens a murder case—and threatens to unravel the carefully constructed life of the victim’s daughter. The only thing more dangerous than a lie…is the truth. Josie Buhrman has spent the last ten years trying to escape her family and with good reason. After her father’s murder thirteen years prior, her mother ran away to join a cult and her twin sister Lanie, once Josie’s closest friend and confidant, betrayed her in an unimaginable way. Now, Josie has finally put down roots in New York, settling into domestic life with her partner Caleb, and that’s where she intends to stay. The only problem is that she has lied to Caleb about every detail of her past—starting with her last name. When investigative reporter Poppy Parnell sets off a media firestorm with a megahit podcast that reopens the long-closed case of Josie’s father’s murder, Josie’s world begins to unravel. Meanwhile, the unexpected death of Josie’s long-absent mother forces her to return to her Midwestern hometown where she must confront the demons from her past—and the lies on which she has staked her future.

A caustic expose of the deeply state of our colleges-America's most expensive Ponzi scheme. What drives a former English major with a creative writing degree, several unpublished novels, three kids, and a straining marriage to take a job as a night teacher at a second-rate college? An unaffordable mortgage. As his house starts falling apart in every imaginable way, Professor X grabs first one, then two jobs teaching English 101 and 102-composition and literature-at a small private college and a local community college. He finds himself on the front lines of America's academic crisis. It's quite an education. This is the story of what he learns about his struggling pupils, about the college system-a business more bent on its own financial targets than the wellbeing of its students-about the classics he rediscovers, and about himself. Funny, wry, self-deprecating, and a provocative indictment of our failing schools, In the Basement of the Ivory Tower is both a brilliant academic satire and a poignant account of one teacher's seismic frustration-and unlikely salvation-as his real estate woes catapult him into a subprime crisis of an altogether more human nature.

When Caleb Cantrell left home as a dirt-poor teenager, he never thought he'd return as a wealthy rodeo star. As a matter of fact, he didn't think he'd return at all. The accident changed all that. It ended his career, nearly ended his life and rekindled a bitterness he thought he'd left in the dust long ago. To rebuild, Caleb has to go back to where it all began—back to Flagman's Folly, New Mexico, and back to his high-school sweetheart, Tess LaSalle. But a ten-year-old secret stands between them, one that could hurt everyone Tess loves, especially her daughter…their daughter…the one Caleb never knew existed. No rodeo ever required the courage Caleb needs now—to forgive, to forget and to start over again…if it's not already too late.

A Taxonomy of the Space Between Us

Poetry. "My sister / is not a woman, a girl, or even / a real someone or something. / Not anymore." The poems in A TAXONOMY OF THE SPACE BETWEEN US by Caleb Curtiss impress fifteen assertions, attempts, and urges toward order on the cavernous and impossible expanse that remains after the speaker's sister "drove past a stop sign and then, / didn't do anything ever again." Curtiss sits right down in the abyss and dwells with the loss, the space where "not wanting a new emergency, / but also, not wanting another old emergency to return," we are forced to live with the aching present and the people who continue to exist within it. Probing earnestly at familial and human connection through the smudged and banged-up lens of loss and loss's aftermath, these poems rebuild the schemas that erode under the weight of untimely death. Through a taxonomy which risks both beauty and longing in the face of irrevocable loss, Curtiss's poems seek to reorient the world after its nature is revealed to be arbitrary and its motives unknowable. "A TAXONOMY OF THE SPACE BETWEEN US is an elegant chronicle of grief, of the sprawling bonds between brothers and sisters, of bodies in this world, of the power of language when so artfully arranged. Caleb Curtiss is a poet among poets and in this beautiful and assured collection, he makes himself heard and how."--Roxane Gay, author of An Untamed State & Bad Feminist "Caleb Curtiss' A TAXONOMY OF THE SPACE BETWEEN US speaks to us from the 'present tense of...absence, ' an unyielding landscape in which these radiant poems are a ceaseless controlled burn. Their narrative inquiry--'Like the sea in a storm, I did not know / how I was like a storm'-- has been primed in a liminal field between grief and selfless intellect. Here is the lyric and evocative testimony of a powerful consciousness at the beginning of a remarkable career." --Renee Ashley, author of BECAUSE I AM THE SHORE I WANT TO BE THE SEA & Salt "In Caleb Curtiss' A TAXONOMY OF THE SPACE BETWEEN US, the poems are stalked by sisterly ghosts, and the persona, via a series of beautifully pathetic trials and errors, emerges not only with a treasure map to a beating heart, but also the blueprints with which we can both construct, and navigate, the dreamiest of our grief. We can be classified, Curtiss tells us, if only because we 'still exist somewhere.' If Linnaeus had the imaginative alchemy necessary to string earthly biology to the chimerical afterlife, Systema Naturae would have read more like Curtiss' revelatory, faithful, and 'very strange ontology.' This brilliant new taxonomy serves as an exhilarating reminder that the things most capable of haunting us, are the most haunted things themselves.--Matthew Gavin Frank, author of Preparing the Ghost & THE MORROW PLOTS "For many of us, death is, as Caleb Curtiss writes, 'The kind of thing / I could never look at.' But the best elegies also operate as memento moris--they recall other people who have died and remind us all that we will, too. Formally adventurous and sharp in its honesty, A TAXONOMY OF THE SPACE BETWEEN US helps us look at--and really see--these ultimate absences."--Kathleen Rooney, author of ROBINSON ALONE & O, Democracy "In his gorgeous and heartfelt elegies, Curtiss offers not just expressions of grief, but also celebrations of what lives on after the lingering loss of a loved one, a person kept beautiful and lasting by these acts of memory, fine poems as indwellings, each as powerfully shaped and permanent as any monument might hope to be."--Matt Bell, author of In the House upon the Dirt between the Lake and the Woods"Curtiss paints one devastating moment from every possible angle, allowing everything surrounding the event to call out the shadows and light, laying plain curiosity and vulnerability. The gorgeous language forms false equations approximating the ineffable."--Jac Jemc, author of My Only Wife & A Different Bed Every Time

View our feature on Geraldine Books’s People of the Book. From the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of March, the journey of a rare illuminated manuscript through centuries of exile and war In 1996, Hanna Heath, an Australian rare-book expert, is offered the job of a lifetime: analysis and conservation of the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, which has been rescued from Serb shelling during the Bosnian war. Priceless and beautiful, the book is one of the earliest Jewish volumes ever to be illuminated with images. When Hanna, a caustic loner with a passion for her work, discovers a series of tiny artifacts in its ancient binding—an insect wing fragment, wine stains, salt crystals, a white hair—she begins to unlock the book’s mysteries. The reader is ushered into an exquisitely detailed and atmospheric past, tracing the book’s journey from its salvation back to its creation. In Bosnia during World War II, a Muslim risks his life to protect it from the Nazis. In the hedonistic salons of fin-de-siècle Vienna, the book becomes a pawn in the struggle against the city’s rising anti-Semitism. In inquisition-era Venice, a Catholic priest saves it from burning. In Barcelona in 1492, the scribe who wrote the text sees his family destroyed by the agonies of enforced exile. And in Seville in 1480, the reason for the Haggadah’s extraordinary illuminations is finally disclosed. Hanna’s investigation unexpectedly plunges her into the intrigues of fine art forgers and ultra-nationalist fanatics. Her experiences will test her belief in herself and the man she has come to love. Inspired by a true story, People of the Book is at once a novel of sweeping historical grandeur and intimate emotional intensity, an ambitious, electrifying work by an acclaimed and beloved author.
