5. End of the Night Girl (Large Print 16pt) - Amy T. Matthews

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Molly, a sassy Australian waitress, is haunted by the ghost of a murdered Polish Jew. The two young women's stories, each a compelling page - turner, combine teasingly in one as End of the Night Girl explores shadows cast by the Holocaust across decades, continents and cultures.
'A brilliant testimonial to the power of the literary imagination.' - Nicholas Jose
'Clothed in prose that sparks and simmers, End of the Night Girl slowly reveals her dark and beautiful bones.' - Carol Lefevre
'Amy Matthews' world of gritty realism is foreshadowed by an older, more traditional society about to be invaded by chaos and horror. One cannot help admiring Matthews' accuracy of observation and her subtle placement of emotion in the uncovering of these parallel universes through the coalescence of memory and imagination. This is a remarkable novel of contemporary rootlessness, haunted histories and redemptive decency.' - Brian Castro
'Can atrocity be changed somehow in art? This book cannot answer this, but it powerfully suggests that the creative act is meaningful even when atrocity is too big for us to mould it. As Molly attempts to imagine and create from an atrocity she hasn't shared, she herself is remade.' - Eva Hornung
Winner of the Adelaide Festival Award for Best Unpublished Manuscript

Pastor Charles M. Sheldon tramped the streets of Topeka, Kansas, disguised as an unemployed printer to research the help and concern of Christians and Christian churches. Shocked at how little he received, he wrote a series of stories asking the question, "What would Jesus do?" The stories were about what happened when a handful of Christians began to answer that question honestly, and then do what they believed He would do-regardless of the results. He read the stories from his pulpit on Sunday evenings. Within a few weeks, he was reading to standing-room only crowds of mostly young people.

15. The Three Fates of Henrik Nordmark (Large Print 16pt) - Christopher Meades

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Henrik Nordmark is a bald, middle - aged security guard with few friends and no romantic possibilities. Tired of being the weed sprouting out of the wallflower, generic in his generality, Henrik has an epiphany. He will have one moment of inimitable distinction, even if it kills him.
Henrik first sets out to experience the throes of addiction, then to become virtuous, and barring this to be known as a public menace. Inevitably he resolves to find true love and fails miserably. Along his journey, Henrik inadvertently becomes the target of a team of elderly assassins - one blind, one deaf, and the other mute.
Henrik's counterpart is Roland, a young office worker who, thinking he's won the lottery, dumps his girlfriend and casts aside his friends. He addresses an email to the company where he works: ''Dear Heartless Bastards ...'' Soon Roland's entire world - the fictional one he'd built up in his mind - comes crashing down to painful reality.
Henrik's and Roland's lives intertwine with that of a young couple, the aptly named Bonnie and Clyde, two formerly star - crossed lovers who have grown to loathe each other. Bonnie and Clyde now have homicidal intent in their hearts, but do they have the cleverness or proficiency to pull off their respective crimes?
The characters' lives all come together in a crescendo in which Henrik realizes his true purpose on earth.
