There's good news for those that rage at the  evening news, shake their heads at Washington's  business-as-usual, or watch as politicians carom from social crisis to political crisis to economic crisis: Dennis Miller is back, and he means to shake the nation by its lapels.Miller respects no boundaries. Whether the subject is dope-addled baseball players who can no longer swing their bats, do-nothing politicians who devote their careers to  creating meaningful sound bites, or the nation's resigned acceptance of violence as a way of American life, these thematically arranged monologues are funny and angry. More significantly, they shatter  the conventions of comedy by simultaneously making  us laugh, think, and seethe. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dennis Miller. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/bant/000061/bk_bant_000061_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

· A New York Times Critics' Top Books of 2019 ·'A superb book' Max Porter, author of Lanny____________________________________Stories of a young man finding his place among family and community in Houston, from a powerful, emerging American voice.In the city of Houston - a sprawling, diverse microcosm of America - the son of a black mother and a Latino father is coming of age. He's working at his family's restaurant, weathering his brother's blows, resenting his older sister's absence. And discovering he likes boys.This boy and his family experience the tumult of living in the margins, the heartbreak of ghosts, and the braveries of the human heart. The stories of others living and thriving and dying across Houston's myriad neighbourhoods are woven throughout to reveal a young woman's affair detonating across an apartment complex, a rag-tag baseball team, a group of young hustlers, the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, a local drug dealer who takes a Guatemalan teen under his wing, and a reluctant chupacabra.Bryan Washington's brilliant, viscerally drawn world leaps off the page with energy, wit, and the infinite longing of people searching for home. With soulful insight into what makes a community, a family, and a life, Lot is about love in all its unsparing and unsteady forms.

In Margaret Truman's latest mystery, the scene opens with an obscure death in Washington's Foggy Bottom, home of the State Department, shifts to massmurder in the downing of aircraft, and then moves on to mayhem in thestreets of the new Moscow. Leaving an airport near New York, a D.C.-bound commuter plane falls to earth. At almost the same time, another crash occurs. And then... Firmly ruling out coincidence, investigators seek means and motive. Themeans are soon apparent: small-scale weaponry with large-scale impact. Their country of origin? A place where nearly everything - hardware, information, love - can be found for a price. Max Pauling, a State Department investigator, seasoned, good-looking, and hard to fool, quickly takes off on a trail still as warm as the smoking wreckage. A host of vivid characters people the narrative, including a lovely StateDepartment analyst who finds herself attracted to undercover types; amilitia leader in Idaho who leads his people into gunfire; a reporter atodds with his boss but not with a good story; and a secretary of state wholoves baseball slightly more than her job. Fast-paced and informative about flying, food, statecraft, and the violent'wetwork' under the dryly elegant exterior of diplomacy, Margaret Truman'sMurder in Foggy Bottom is another winner in the Capital Crimes series. Praise for Margaret Truman'A first-rate mystery writer, said Charles Champlin in the Los Angeles TimesBook Review, 'drawing on an I-was-there expertise thatmakes the Washington scene clang with credibility.' 'She can write suspense with the best of them,' says Larry King. Her work is 'the mostsatisfying sort of popular fiction, a thoughtfulthriller,' adds The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
