16. Ronald Reagan, My Father (Large Print 16pt) - Brian Joseph Davis

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

'An elegant, wise - ass rush of truth, hiding riotous social commentary in slanderous jokes...It almost feels like he's leading a palace coup.'' - Spin Magazine on Portable Altamont ''Davis' brilliant media deconstructions are pointed and hilarious at the same time.'' - Kenneth Goldsmith ''The book of your fever dreams.'' - Slate on I, Tania The elderly take to the streets at night for illegal and cathartic electric scooter racing. (Think Two - Lane Blacktop but starring Abe Vigoda and Estelle Getty.) A copy editor suffers brain damage from West Nile virus and is suddenly filled with cannibalistic violence and award - winning minimalist poetry. (It's a little like Awakenings, but directed by David Cronenberg.) Mayor McCheese visits a sexually repressed British couple in the early 1970s and touches their lives forever. (Okay, try this: Pasolini's Teorema but with Mayor McCheese.) A Texas doctor transplants the mind of a meth - addicted convict into the body of a suburban web developer, resulting in America's first ''death - penalty case that turned into a custody case that turned into a right - to - die case.'' (It's like a hole drilled in your head and five HBO original movies poured in all at once.) Startlingly original but anchored by vivid characters, Ronald Reagan, My Father weaves all these ideas, and more, into a bleakly hilarious vision that's both human and uncanny - as if Raymond Carver was marooned on Mars with ten hours to live.

17. I, Tania (Large Print 16pt) - Brian Joseph Davis

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

America lies in ruins during an age of decline, despair, and death. The year is 1975 and a radical far - left group has kidnapped a young woman from one of America's richest families. She will later join their cause and will eventually be arrested and convicted of armed robbery. She will claim it was a ''different personality'' that robbed the bank. The jury didn't buy it, but author Brian Joseph Davis did. The important difference is: Davis thought her ''different personality'' was more interesting and deserved her own fake memoir. Welcome to I, Tania, a book that uses the memoir format just enough to spin off into a crazed, bawdy, and seditious charge through pop culture, politics, and the meaning of fiction itself. I, Tania begins by recounting the highly fictionalized true story of the rise and fall of the Symbianese Liberation Army, as it never happened. Brainwashing will never be as much fun as when Tania takes you on an armed - to - the - teeth trip through one of the strangest episodes in history while writing her memoirs in the year 2005. Tania may have survived bank heists and open relationships, but will she be able to survive the savage world of contemporary book publishing and promotion? More than just a run - of - the - mill fake memoir, I, Tania will blast you into a million little pieces with: The hidden Marxist meanings behind Cujo Why John McEnroe is scarier than Ian Curtis How Don DeLillo can kill . . . with his mind Do violent debutantes have a place in political struggle? After Tania and Katie Couric's climactic talk show, you'll know the shocking, surprisingly funny answer.

18. The Happiness Show A Novel (Large Print 16pt) - Catherine Deveny

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

''A funny, feisty read. I was hooked from the first page.'' - Mia Freedman Smart, funny and refreshingly honest, The Happiness Show is the first novel from much - loved columnist and comedian Catherine Deveny. At thirty - eight, Lizzie Quealy thinks she has things sorted: happy marriage, a couple of gorgeous kids, a steadfast best friend and a job she loves (most of the time). But when she bumps into Tom, an old flame from her globe - trotting twenties, everything she thought she knew is turned on its head. Tom is her ''unfinished business'': the man she might have spent her life with, if things had gone a little bit differently. Fifteen years on, the spark is still there - but how far is Lizzie prepared to go to recapture it, and at what cost? Set between Melbourne, London and Bali, The Happiness Show is a hilarious, heartbreaking story about love and marriage, sex and friendship, the passing of time and the messiness of second chances.
