2014.5.19 NEW ARRIVALS

Half Bad


AUTHOR: Sally Green


PRICE: $ 12.99

GENRE: Fiction

In modern-day England, witches live alongside humans: white witches, who are good; black witches, who are evil; and 16-year-old Nathan, who is both. Nathan’s father is the world’s most powerful and cruel black witch, and his mother is dead. He is hunted from all sides. Trapped in a cage, beaten and handcuffed, Nathan must escape before his seventeenth birthday, at which point he will receive three gifts from his father and come into his own as a witch - or else he will die. But how can Nathan find his father when his every action is tracked, when there is no one safe to trust - not even family, not even the girl he loves?

In the tradition of Patrick Ness and Markus Zusak, “Half Bad” is a gripping tale of alienation and the indomitable will to survive, a story that will grab hold of you and not let go until the very last page.

Here and Now: Letters 2008-2011


AUTHOR: Paul Auster, J. M. Coetzee

PUBLISHER: Penguin Books

PRICE: $16.00

GENRE: Nonfiction

“[A] civilized discourse between two cultivated and sophisticated men. ... It’s a pleasure to be in their company.” - Michael Dirda, The Washington Post.

After a meeting at an Australian literary festival brought them together in 2008, novelists Paul Auster and J. M. Coetzee began exchanging letters on a regular basis with the hope they might “strike sparks off each other.” “Here and Now” is the result: a three-year epistolary dialogue that touches on nearly every subject, from sports to fatherhood, literature to film, philosophy to politics, from the financial crisis to art, death, eroticism, marriage, friendship, and love. Their high-spirited and luminous correspondence offers an intimate and often amusing portrait of these two men as they explore the complexities of the here and now and reveal their pleasure in each other’s friendship on every page.

How God Became Jesus


AUTHOR : Michael F. Bird

PUBLISHER: : Zondervan

PRICE : $16.99

GENRE : Christology

In “How God Became Jesus,” Michael F. Bird argues against historian Bart Ehrman’s theory that Jesus of Nazareth did not claim that he was, and is, God. Bird contends, with the help of biblical scholars, that the exalted place of Jesus is clearly evident in the earliest Christian sources, shortly following his death, and was not the invention of the church.
