Twelve Years a Slave (1853) is a memoir and slave narrative by Solomon Northup, as told to and edited by David Wilson. Northup, a black man who was born free in New York, details his kidnapping in Washington, D.C. and subsequent sale into slavery. After having been kept in bondage for 12 years in Louisiana by various masters, Northup was able to write to friends and family in New York, who were in turn able to secure his release. Northup's account provides extensive details on the slave markets in Washington, D.C. and New Orleans and describes at length cotton and sugar cultivation on major plantations in Louisiana.

Summer’s over, and Carole, Stevie, and Lisa are hoping things will get back to normal—but is there even such thing as normal anymore? The start of the new school year is a reality check for best friends Carole Hansen, Stevie Lake, and Lisa Atwood. Stevie’s boyfriend, Phil, is suddenly hanging out with Callie’s brother, Scott, who still blames Stevie for the near-fatal car accident that injured his sister. Carole’s new responsibilities at Pine Hollow Stables are threatening her relationships with her friends, and Lisa is having a hard time adjusting to being back in Willow Creek. Has she ruined her possibility for a career in the entertainment industry? And now Callie seems to be part of their special circle. Jealousy, betrayal, and an explosive secret will make this semester an unforgettable one. Forced to examine where their true loyalties lie, the girls start to realize that nothing stays the same—not even friendship.
Instantly reminiscent of the work of Osamu Dazai and Patricia Highsmith, Fuminori Nakamura’s latest novel is a dark and twisting house of mirrors that philosophically explores the violence of aesthetics and the horrors of identity. A young writer arrives at a prison to interview a convict. The writer has been commissioned to write a full account of the case, from the bizarre and grisly details of the crime to the nature of the man behind it. The suspect, a world-renowned photographer named Kiharazaka, has a deeply unsettling portfolio—lurking beneath the surface of each photograph is an acutely obsessive fascination with his subject. He stands accused of murdering two women—both burned alive—and will likely face the death penalty. But something isn’t quite right. As the young writer probes further, his doubts about this man as a killer intensify, and he struggles to maintain his sense of reason and justice. Is Kiharazaka truly guilty, or will he die to protect someone else? Evoking Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood and Ryūnosuke Akutagawa’s “Hell Screen,” Last Winter, We Parted is a twisted tale that asks a deceptively sinister question: Is it possible to truly capture the essence of another human being?

Mark Thomas—a legendarily seditious comedian and human rights activist—is a recovering Coca-Cola addict, a self-described “middle-aged fat dad with asthma” who decides to trek around the globe investigating the stories and people Coca-Cola's iconic advertising campaigns don't mention: child laborers in the sugarcane fields of El Salvador, Indian workers exposed to toxic chemicals, Columbian labor union leaders in Coke bottling plants falsely accused of terrorism and jailed alongside the paramilitaries who want to kill them. At once hilarious and disturbing, Thomas builds a very detailed and damning case against the world's most ubiquitous drink.
