Shrines of Gaiety
A Novel
Kate Atkinson - 2022-09-27
Рейтинг Goodreads
Step into the debauchery and extravagance of London's Roaring Twenties. Corruption, seduction, and debts due run rampant in the delirious nightlife of Soho clubs. Meet Nellie Coker, a ruthless ruler with a fierce ambition for her six children, and her eldest son Niven, whose enigmatic character is forged from the horrors of the Great War. But beneath the gaiety lies a dark underbelly where danger lurks at every corner.

I’ve just finished SHRINES OF GAIETY by Kate Atkinson, the seventh (I think) of her books that I’ve read. There’s a point in most of them that I’ve thought “Why am I reading this? It isn’t going anywhere!” And then it all wraps up very satisfyingly, not because everything…      источник
Blurb Your Enthusiasm book cover
Blurb Your Enthusiasm
An A-Z of Literary Persuasion
Louise Willder - 2022-10-11
Рейтинг Goodreads
Explore the fascinating world of book marketing with this illuminating read. From cover designs and blurbs to publishing secrets and author feuds, discover the inner workings of the industry. Delve into classic literature, bonkbusters, and plot spoilers to discover why it's okay to judge a book by its cover. Written by Louise Willder, this book will ignite your enthusiasm for the power of marketing in the literary world.
Kurt Busiek
Given how often I have to write book blurbs, I think this is going to be a must read. And just the preview alone has told me that Ian Fleming's MOONRAKER might have instead been called MONDAYS ARE HELL, so it's already giving value.      источник

Old Dog #1
Declan Shalvey - 2022-09-28
Рейтинг Goodreads
"OLD DOG follows the story of Jack Lynch, a retired CIA operative who wakes up years later to a changed world and a changed self. Tasked with a final mission that goes awry, Lynch is offered a second chance at adventure with a new partner. This striking spy-fi series by acclaimed author Declan Shalvey is a must-read for fans of Moon Knight, X-Men Unlimited, and TIME BEFORE TIME."
Kurt Busiek
And since I'm catching up, I also just read OLD DOG 1 by @declanshalvey Clayton Cowles @HeatherAntos. Another great looking book -- high energy, don't-know-who-to-trust action/espionage with a tough, bitter, surprising lead and a winning series concept. Check it out!      источник

The Lonesome Hunters
Tyler Crook - 2023-02-01
Рейтинг Goodreads
From Russ Manning Award-winning and Eisner-nominated Harrow County co-creator Tyler Crook comes this supernatural fantasy about loss, power, and destiny. ...
Kurt Busiek
As an example of how behind on things I am, I just now read advance copies of THE LONESOME HUNTERS 1-2 by @MrTylerCrook, and issue 4 just came out recently. So, late. But it's an amazing book, and I recommend it highly.      источник

Less Is Lost book cover
Less Is Lost
Andrew Sean Greer - 2022-09-20
Рейтинг Goodreads
Join Arthur Less on an unforgettable road trip across America as he faces personal demons and adventures with a series of writerly characters and his trusty duo. In the follow-up to the best-selling and Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Less, Less Is Lost explores important themes of life in America, the enigma of love, and the stories we tell along the way with irrepressible wit and musicality.
Kurt Busiek
I'm currently reading LESS IS LOST by Andrew Sean Greer, and I gotta say, it's a delight. The previous book about the hapless Arthur Less won the Pulitzer, but this one seems funnier, warmer, slyer and more confident. I am, as they say in France, digging it the most.      источник

"Outrage Volume 1" by Fabian Nicieza and Reilly Brown is a comic book that explores the fantasy of exacting swift and anonymous justice on those who abuse and humiliate others on the internet.

But more than just a satisfying revenge fantasy, Outrage also touches on the darker parts of human nature and the struggle to control anger within ourselves. Who or what is Outrage? Find out in this thrilling and comedic tale of internet justice.
Kurt Busiek
If you haven't been reading OUTRAGE, by @FabianNicieza @Reilly_Brown @jayleisten @MattHerms @droog811, I recommend giving it a try. From the co-creator of DEADPOOL and a stylish posse of collaborators. Good stuff!      источник

Just got an advanced copy of THE ART OF THE REAL TOM SAWYER by Leif Peng, Thomas B. Sawyer & Ana-Marija Vlahovic. It’s a gorgeous art book, covering Tom’s career in comics, advertising and more.      источник

"Mercury Pictures Presents" follows the story of Maria Lagana, a brilliant woman who moves to Los Angeles to escape her past after a childhood transgression led to her father's arrest in Mussolini's Italy. As an associate producer at Mercury Pictures, Maria navigates through personal and professional challenges, including a mother who won't speak to her and a boss summoned to Washington by congressional investigators. Against the backdrop of World War II, Maria rises through conflicting politics, divided loyalties, and jockeying ambitions. This beautifully written novel is a love letter to life's bit players and a tour de force with an exhilarating sense of possibility.
