"Ranger Games" by Ben Blum

A very immersive,  in depth look at a young Army Ranger's participation in a bank robbery, written by a cousin of the perpetrator. What starts off as something like a Manchurian Candidate for millennials broadens into a deeper look at family, identity, manipulation and the lies that exist in all of our lives. Astonishing on multiple levels: it’s almost too much. You might want to read the most commercial sort of genre fiction afterwards just to recover.

"Heather, the Totality: A Novel

From the creator of Mad Men, a brilliant debut about an upper crust Manhattan family intersecting with a young ex-offender. Reads like the social satire of Tom Perrotta crossed with the noir of James M. Cain. The most divisive title I’ve ever seen on Goodreads: most people either love it, or have given it a single star and an angry review. At 134 pages, read it and judge for yourself.

Available as a book on cd and in large print format as well.

"One Dark Throne" by Kendare Blake

Every aspect of the Three Dark Crowns series develops complexity, suspense and engagement in this second book. It has a strong, compelling, intricate web of settings; characters and plotlines that revolve around the three main characters we met in book one. They are sisters, gifted with different kinds of magic, separated in childhood, raised and trained in competing cities and destined to fight to the death for the crown of their tiny island.

In book one Mirabella was very talented and gifted in elemental magic, while her sisters Katharine and Arsinoe had no magical powers at all in poisoner and naturalist magic, respectively. At the end of book one someone attempts to poison Arsinoe and she is immune. From this we learn that Arsinoe and Katharine were switched as babies and therefore trained in magic they had no power for. Arsinoe begins to claim her magical power, but Katharine is still unaware they were switched. This plotline provides all kinds of suspense and intrigue, as well as sewing many possibilities for book three. The most important change, however, is that Mirabella and Arsinoe grow to trust, protect and love each other. Eventually they actually refuse to kill each other or Katharine. For this they are sentenced to death and Katharine wins the crown. But… there is so much more.

This is a fantastic, refreshingly different story. Many unpredictable things happened. I can’t wait to read on. I loved this series so much, I went back and listened to her previous books Anna Dressed in Blood and Girl of Nightmares and loved those too!

"On the Camino" by Jason

To mark his 50th birthday, renowned cartoonist Jason decides to walk the entire 500 mile pilgrimage of the Camino de Santiago, a journey made by thousands of Christians and non-believers every year.  On the Camino is Jason’s memoir of the journey, chronicling the 32 day journey from the Pyranees to Finisterre on the west coast of Spain.  The trek has its ups (meeting new people from all over the world, the beautiful scenery) and its downs (ever present blisters and pains, bedbugs) as Jason follows the pilgrims path.

"Appleseed. Alpha" by Lou Kuroda

It is the 22nd century and the world has been devastated by a third world war which, luckily, did not involve nuclear annihilation.  Serving as a prequel of sorts to the original Appleseed manga, Appleseed Alpha sees Deunan and her cyborg lover Briareos before joining Olympus.  New York is a city for cyborgs, run by a dapper but delusional cyborg obsessed with preparing for an alien invasion.  Well suited for Briareos’s cyborg needs, New York is less welcoming to normal humans, which leads Deunan to head out in search of a more human friendly home.  However, real threats abound and the humans and the cyborgs will need to learn to work together to save their cities.

"American Dream" by LCD Soundsystem

The long awaited fourth studio LP, American Dream, from Brooklyn’s indie darling, dance sensations LCD Soundsystem will be released September 1st on 10 track CD via Columbia Records/DFA. The first two singles released from the album are "call the police" and "american dream," that moved Pitchfork to rave the songs "couldn't sound timelier" and that "Murphy and company have never sounded so invigorated." The New York Times hailed "call the police" as "a quietly ambitious protest song... except that instead of searing, it motors," and Noisey embraced "american dream" like "a warm blanket." The band debuted both of these tracks on a May, 2017 appearance on Saturday Night Live.
