A cross between Nora Ephron and David Sedaris, longtime NPR commentator Marion Winik has a uniquely hilarious and relatable way of looking at life. Her stories of being single in middle age, marked by stylish writing and stunning candor, left readers bent double with laughter when they appeared in her column, rated "Best of Baltimore" by Baltimore Magazine. Highs in the Low Fifties follows Winik’s attempt to rebuild her world as a once-widowed, once-divorced single mom. With her signature optimism, resilience, and poor judgment, Winik dives into a series of ill-starred romantic experiences. Her clarity about her mistakes and ability to find humor in the darkest moments—in love, and in all parts of life—has won her a growing crowd of devoted followers . . . and a few voyeurs.

Poetry. "Kenneth Goldsmith is without doubt the leading conceptual poet of this time. His poetry, which draws from Fluxus, Dada, and conceptual art traditions, is clever and self aware. With now classics such as FIDGET, SOLILOQUY, and DAY (all available form SPD), he has made poetry out of the mundane and when reading his work one is forced to reconsider the stakes and the measurements of aesthetic practice. THE WEATHER, a collection of weather reports, is one more test of poetry. And what is most striking about this book is that it aces the test. There is something wonderfully celebratory and shockingly pleasant and stimulatingly interesting about reading day after day of weather gone by"--Juliana Spahr.

With the Russian economy in a shambles, and the hard-line leaders in power, renegade KGB operatives steal the classified dossier on the Kremlin's most carefully guarded operation, known as the "Red Locust" file. This ultra-secret document details the exact locations of over one hundred tactical nuclear weapons, or "suitcase bombs," secretly placed in the U.S. during the height of the Cold War. Thousands of miles away, in Washington D.C., in the final weeks of the presidential election, a young prostitute is found brutally murdered in a luxury hotel. The only clue--a single cufflink bearing the seal of the President of the United States. These seemingly unrelated events will soon reveal not only a sinister connection but a twisting trail of conspiracy and espionage, power brokers and assassins. It's a trail that leads from mainland China to the seamy underbelly of the Washington power-structure ... to the Oval Office itself.
