Going Anywhere

by David Armstrong

"Controlled, poetically laconic prose . . . a perfect distillation of the ways that grief seems unfathomably large and mysterious."--Lev Raphael, author of Rosedale in Love"Armstrong's characters are . . . elevated to the heights of tragedy through careful attention to detail and voice."--Las Vegas WeeklyThese stories occupy the space between dark realities and the fantastic leaps of faith people make to survive. Connecting them is the journey: people searching for solace, insight, purpose; gathering up their lives into discernible pieces of fact and conviction, hoping to get it right.David Armstrong had received many awards for his stories, which have been widely published in literary journals. He is fiction editor of Witness Magazine and a recipient of the Black Mountain Institute Fellowship.

Going Away Shoes

by Jill McCorkle

The foibles of the people in Jill McCorkle’s world are so familiar that we want nothing so much as to watch them walk into—and then get out of—life’s inevitable traps. Here, in her first collection in eight years, McCorkle collects eleven brand-new stories bristling with her characteristic combination of wit and weight. In honeymoon shoes, mud-covered hunting boots, or glass slippers, all of the women in these stories march to a place of new awareness, in one way or another, transforming their lives. They make mistakes, but they don’t waste time hiding behind them. They move on. They are strong. And they’re funny, even when they are sad. These stories are the work of a great storyteller who knows exactly how—and why—to pair pain with laughter.

Going Blind: A Memoir

by Mara Faulkner

<P>Mara Faulkner grew up in a family shaped by Irish ancestry, a close-to-the-bone existence in rural North Dakota, and the secret of her father's blindness--along with the silence and shame surrounding it. Dennis Faulkner had retinitis pigmentosa, a genetic disease that gradually blinded him and one that may blind many members of his family, including the author. <P>Moving and insightful, Going Blind explores blindness in its many Permutations-within the context of the author's family, more broadly, as a disability marked by misconceptions, and as a widely used cultural metaphor. Mara Faulkner delicately weaves her family's story into an analysis of the roots and ramifications of the various metaphorical meanings of blindness, touching of the Catholic Church of the 1940s, and 1950s, Japanese internment, the Germans from Russia who dominated her hometown, and the experiences of Native people in North Dakota. <P>Neither sentimental nor dispassionate, the author asks whether it's possible to find gifts when sight is lost.

Going Bovine

by Libba Bray

' Cameron has just had some bad news: he's sick and is going to die. Which totally sucks. But then hope arrives in the form of Dulcie, a loopy punk angel with a bad sugar habit who promises Cam there is a cure if he's willing to go in search of it. With the help of Gonzo, a death-obsessed, video-gaming dwarf, and a garden gnome who might just be the Viking god Balder, Cam sets off on the mother of all road trips through a twisted America of smoothie-drinking happiness cults (and possible serial killers), parallel universe-hopping physicists, mythic New Orleans jazz musicians, whacked-out television game shows, snow globe vigilantes, and disenfranchised, fame-hungry teens and into the heart of what matters most.

Going Deeper

by J. Sidlow Baxter

Going Deeper is a priceless book on deep and precious spiritual matters, written by a deep and discerning thinker. Though the author is known internationally as one of the world’s foremost Bible expositors, here the emphasis is not on the study of the text of Scripture, but on the practical application of its message in victorious Christian living. It is not knowing about Christ, but knowing Him, and performing a spiritual service of being as well as doing which leads to complete surrender to a sovereign Christ, says Dr. Baxter. <P><P>When many an exciting but transient issue of today has been forgotten, the deep spiritual realities dealt with in the three areas of this spiritual classic will live on with imperishable significance, as will the reverent, scholarly exposition of them in this rich and rewarding volume. Knowing, loving, and serving our Lord Jesus Christ - the greatest of these is loving, for it is the outcome of intimate communion, and the reward of obedience, and responsiveness to the calls of duty. To know Him is to love Him, and to love Him is to serve Him in utter loyalty and devotion.

by Steve Eubanks Doug Seegers

The astonishing story of a singer-songwriter living on the streets of Nashville who met Jesus, got sober, and found international stardom at the age of 62.Doug Seegers left New York for Nashville in search of every songwriter’s dream. When he didn’t find success, he fell into a state of loneliness that fed an addiction he had battled since adolescence. Soon, he was homeless, playing his guitar on the street with a cardboard sign asking for money. But then he cried out to God in repentance and need, and God graciously met him. Doug then found sobriety, regained some footing, and in a miraculous moment was discovered outside a food pantry by a Swedish musician and documentarian who put his story on the air in Stockholm. Within days of the documentary airing--even though he still walked to the public library every day and acquired most of his belongings from nearby Dumpsters--Doug had the number-one selling song in Sweden. Going Down to the River is Doug’s inspirational story of faith, forgiveness, and the power of prayer and belief. It is also the never-give-up tale of a man who played music for 55 years without success only to become a chart-topping artist at the age of 62.

Going Dutch: A Novel

by James Gregor

* MOST ANTICIPATED SUMMER READING SELECTION BY * ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY * BUZZFEED * “In this intelligent, entertaining and elegantly written novel, James Gregor pulls off something many psychological novelists aspire to and few achieve: he convincingly captures the thinking of a character who earnestly sees himself as sympathetic, even as he behaves terribly.” —Adelle Waldman, author of The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. "Be it the horrors of online dating, the absurdity of academia, or the dicey interplay of gender and class, I'm convinced there's nothing that escapes James Gregor's attention." —Grant Ginder, author of Honestly, We Meant Well "Going Dutch is my favorite kind of novel—smart, insightful, and brimming with sly humor." —Stephen McCauley, author of My Ex-Life “[An] excellent debut…Marvelously witty...Announces Gregor as a fresh, electric new voice.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) "A comedy of manners for the (very) modern age." —Entertainment Weekly "Masterful. [An] exciting debut, and will leave you eager for more." —BuzzFeedExhausted by dead-end forays in the gay dating scene, surrounded constantly by friends but deeply lonely in New York City, and drifting into academic abyss, twenty-something graduate student Richard has plenty of sources of anxiety. But at the forefront is his crippling writer’s block, which threatens daily to derail his graduate funding and leave Richard poor, directionless, and desperately single. Enter Anne: his brilliant classmate who offers to “help” Richard write his papers in exchange for his company, despite Richard’s fairly obvious sexual orientation. Still, he needs her help, and it doesn’t hurt that Anne has folded Richard into her abundant lifestyle. What begins as an initially transactional relationship blooms gradually into something more complex. But then a one-swipe-stand with an attractive, successful lawyer named Blake becomes serious, and Richard suddenly finds himself unable to detach from Anne, entangled in her web of privilege, brilliance, and, oddly, her unabashed acceptance of Richard’s flaws. As the two relationships reach points of serious commitment, Richard soon finds himself on a romantic and existential collision course—one that brings about surprising revelations. Going Dutch is an incisive portrait of relationships in an age of digital romantic abundance, but it’s also a heartfelt and humorous exploration of love and sexuality, and a poignant meditation on the things emotionally ravenous people seek from and do to each other. James Gregor announces himself with levity, and a fresh, exciting voice in his debut.
