While riding his bicycle to work, Ryan Malloy is struck by lightning. In four days, he’ll emerge from a coma completely normal, except for the music he now hears when he eats something. The lightning strike re-wired Ryan’s brain, a little jolt that pushed him into a new undiscovered stage of human evolution. Food now sings to Ryan through chemical communication. Ryan enjoys this new experience, favoring a diet of ice cream and bacon because of the incredible songs they produce. Amy, his chemist girlfriend, is curious about what these songs sound like, so Ryan creates an electronic replica of the ice cream song she can hear. This leads to the shocking discovery that anyone who hears the song instantly craves and experiences the flavor of ice cream. Ryan and Amy are convinced their discovery will make them billionaires, but when the song is accidently unleashed on the public, the results are frightening, and the phenomenon becomes a threat to national security, which leads to serious trouble for both of them.
Tyler Lagasse began reading and writing at the age of two. His parents were amazed at how smart he was. When he wouldn’t talk to them, they were concerned. How could someone so smart not interact with their parents? By the age of four, they had their answer. He was diagnosed with a form of autism. Determined not to give up when faced with the challenge of raising a son with autism, Deb Lagasse looked to find a place to “fix” her son. What she discovered through this journey was that her son was not “broken.” He just experienced the world differently compared to most people. Full of insights, struggles, and celebrations, What Do You Say? Autism with Character will enlighten, educate, and, most of all, inspire you to accept the strengths that everyone has and believe in the power to really see those strengths as talents and skills. For the first time, read Tyler’s journal reflections of what he thinks, believes, and does as his mother reflects on those same experiences from a sometimes completely different point of view.

Don’t miss this latest installment in Arne Dahl’s acclaimed thriller series, winner of the German Crime Writing Prize. Stockholm’s Intercrime team—a specialized group created to investigate violent, international crime—has been split up, their leader forced into early retirement, and his officers reassigned to mundane cases. Detectives Arto Söderstedt and Viggo Norlander answer calls around the city, Gunnar Nyberg is on the child abuse team, Jorge Chavez is immersed in dull research tasks, Paul Hjelm and Kerstin Holm are assigned to the meaningless murder of a young soccer supporter in a pub. But a series of precisely targeted bomb attacks—in a high-security prison, a car involved in a drug deal, and a dark suburban street—brings the Intercrime team back together, urgently. There is something dangerous approaching Sweden, and they are the only people who can do anything to stop it.

Black Atlas presents definitive new approaches to black geography. It focuses attention on the dynamic relationship between place and African American literature during the long nineteenth century, a volatile epoch of national expansion that gave rise to the Civil War, Reconstruction, pan-Americanism, and the black novel. Judith Madera argues that spatial reconfiguration was a critical concern for the era's black writers, and she also demonstrates how the possibility for new modes of representation could be found in the radical redistricting of space. Madera reveals how crucial geography was to the genre-bending works of writers such as William Wells Brown, Martin Delany, James Beckwourth, Pauline Hopkins, Charles Chesnutt, and Alice Dunbar-Nelson. These authors intervened in major nineteenth-century debates about free soil, regional production, Indian deterritorialization, internal diasporas, pan–American expansionism, and hemispheric circuitry. Black geographies stood in for what was at stake in negotiating a shared world.
