  • Hell of Hosanna

    by Kip Langton

    Imagine the Empire State Building removed from New York City. Imagine that building reconstructed brick-by-brick on your father’s private island—the trappings of the past stolen from the public to indulge unfettered hypocrisy. This is James’s defeated and ravaged landscape when his father, Fep Anglish, successfully monopolizes all forms of industry into one perfect company called U atop the collapse of the old world. Ownership becomes a thing of the past. Now, anyone can have anything—temporarily. Is this hosanna? Maybe on paper. But to James, the “rent and move on” lifestyle is a total hell. And in this hell, his impossible dream of becoming something fuels his transience and passivity. This is reality until one strange day, when the whole thing comes tumbling down on itself and James finally gets the opportunity to break away. In a U space shuttle, he travels to the ultimate unknown in boundless space. Freedom, finally? The real hosanna?

  • Crooked Lines

    by Jenna Zark

    When you part company with the life you’ve been living and have to start a new one, what do you do? While trying to sort out the answer to this question — along with the question of what being Jewish meant to her — Zark began writing. This book was born of the journey. Jenna Zark was married to the cantor of a Jewish synagogue and was trying to fit into a life she hadn’t anticipated. When her marriage fell apart, she felt completely unprepared. Because she moved from the East Coast to the Twin Cities expressly for her ex-husband’s job, most of her friends were from his synagogue. Staring down the prospect of being a single mom, Zark had to decide if and how to work with her former husband, now co-parent, to give her son a Jewish heritage. While the holidays and rituals in these pages are Jewish, the theme is universal and familiar for anyone who has ever experienced life-transforming loss. Crooked Lines is Jenna Zark’s honest and compelling story of navigating divorce, single parenthood, interfaith marriage, and losing parents while holding on to one’s humor and traditions.

Can he stay one step ahead of his partners, the President, the Senate and the FBI? Written with knowledge and insights by a 40 year DC lobbyist, Capitol Gains follows in the traditions of Christopher Buckley and P J O'rouke as a wild romp through the Washington lobbying scene.
