In this wild battering ram of a novel, which was originally published to vast controversy in 1965, Norman Mailer creates a character who might be a fictional precursor of the philosopher-killer he would later profile in The Executioner´s Song. As Stephen Rojack, a decorated war hero and former congressman who murders his wife in a fashionable New York City high-rise, runs amok through the city in which he was once a privileged citizen, Mailer peels away the layers of our social norms to reveal a world of pure appetite and relentless cruelty. One part Nietzsche, one part de Sade, and one part Charlie Parker, An American Dream grabs the reader by the throat and refuses to let go. Praise for An American Dream ´´Perhaps the only serious New York novel since The Great Gatsby.´´-Joan Didion, National Review ´´A devil´s encyclopedia of our secret visions and desires . . . the expression of a devastatingly alive and original creative mind.´´-Life ´´A work of fierce concentration . . . perfectly, and often brilliantly, realistic [with] a pattern of remarkable imaginative coherence and intensity.´´-Harper´s ´´At once violent, educated, and cool . . . This is our history as Hawthorne might have written it.´´-Commentary Praise for Norman Mailer ´´[Norman Mailer] loomed over American letters longer and larger than any other writer of his generation.´´-The New York Times ´´A writer of the greatest and most reckless talent.´´-The New Yorker ´´Mailer is indispensable, an American treasure.´´-The Washington Post ´´A devastatingly alive and original creative mind.´´-Life ´´Mailer is fierce, courageous, and reckless and nearly everything he writes has sections of headlong brilliance.´´-The New York Review of Books ´´The largest mind and imagination [in modern] American literature . . . Unlike just about every American writer since Henry James, Mailer has managed to grow and become richer in wisdom with each new book.´´-Chicago Tribune ´´Mailer is a master of his craft. His language carries you through the story like a leaf on a stream.´´-The Cincinnati Post
Deputy Jacob Anderson wants a wife with some sense in her - he´s not interested in a flighty young thing who´ll distract him from the thing God put him on this Earth to do: catch outlaws. Seamstress Abigail Huxley is in danger of becoming an old maid. Orphaned at 14 and raised by her loving aunt, she can´t offer her new husband a dowry. All she´s got is her skill with a needle and her faith that God has a plan for her. Longing for a family of her own, Abigail prays long and hard before deciding to become a mail-order bride. When Abigail arrives in Salvation, she´s confronted by a reckless young woman named Sarah who´s determined to drive a wedge between Abigail and her new husband. Is Abigail´s faith in God strong enough to protect her from the fears lurking in her own heart? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nancy Isaacs.

Will Self is one of the most important British novelists of his generation, and he is as acclaimed in the UK for his outstanding, daring journalism as he is for his fiction. Now finally available in America, Junk Mail is an original selection of pieces from Self´s nonfiction and journalism that will introduce American listeners to Self as a literary journalist par excellence. Animated by the scathing brilliance and unflinching determination to walk the road less traveled, Junk Mail is an often-irreverent trawl through a landscape of drugs, culture, art, literature, and current events - topics Self illuminates with a keen and entirely original eye. We follow Self into the operation of an upstanding crack dealer, behind the myth of the ´´pragmatist´´ approach to drug legalization on the streets of Amsterdam, and to lunch with Indian author Salman Rushdie. Whether he is writing about bad-boy British artist Damien Hirst, how literary renegade William Burroughs has changed our outlook on art and intoxication, or what the current state of transsexuality has to say about gender for all of us, this is a lively and necessary anthology from one of the defining voices of our times. 1.
