Little Criminals

by Gene Kerrigan

Frankie Crowe is not one of the great criminal masterminds. A small time thug, he thinks--to the extent he can--that kidnapping one of Dublins newly rich businessmen just may be the low risk fast track to the status and money he knows he deserves. When the local crime boss refuses him permission to make the snatch, he shoots the boss and commences with his plan--such as it is. After a somewhat haphazard selection, this crew of casually vicious miscreants kidnaps the wife of a moderately prosperous lawyer rather than the spouse of the wealthy banker Frankie thought he had chosen. From that point forward, no one from Inspector John Grace to that pillar of Dublin gangland Jo-Jo Mackendrick can predict the next twist in a scheme that has gone from wrong to bad to worse. Kerrigans writing, like Elmore Leonards, is driven by character rather than plot. His novel is alive to the codes and expectations of the different sections of modern Irish society. His narrative is taut and harrowing, his dialogue spot-on. The resulting story is everything Frankie Crowe is not: smart, assured and confident--mixing an exciting combination of entertainment and art available only in superior crime fiction. "Little Criminals is a terrific novel, tense and exciting. "--The Independent on Sunday "Gene Kerrigans writing is magnificent. It is graceful, tough, hardboiled and tender, as razor-sharp and gritty as it is lyrical and truthful. "--Joseph OConnor, author of "Star of the Sea" "A novel of great emotional impact and beautifully etched characters. "--The Guardian

Little Failure

by Gary Shteyngart

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD FINALISTNAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY MICHIKO KAKUTANI, THE NEW YORK TIMES * NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST NONFICTION BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY TIME NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY MORE THAN 45 PUBLICATIONS, INCLUDING The New York Times Book Review * The Washington Post * NPR * The New Yorker * San Francisco Chronicle * The Economist * The Atlantic * Newsday * Salon * St. Louis Post-Dispatch * The Guardian * Esquire (UK) * GQ (UK)Little Failure is the all too true story of an immigrant family betting its future on America, as told by a lifelong misfit who finally finds a place for himself in the world through books and words. In 1979, a little boy dragging a ginormous fur hat and an overcoat made from the skin of some Soviet woodland creature steps off the plane at New York's JFK International Airport and into his new American life. His troubles are just beginning. For the former Igor Shteyngart, coming to the United States from the Soviet Union is like stumbling off a monochromatic cliff and landing in a pool of Technicolor. Careening between his Soviet home life and his American aspirations, he finds himself living in two contradictory worlds, wishing for a real home in one. He becomes so strange to his parents that his mother stops bickering with his father long enough to coin the phrase failurchka--"little failure"--which she applies to her once-promising son. With affection. Mostly. From the terrors of Hebrew School to a crash course in first love to a return visit to the homeland that is no longer home, Gary Shteyngart has crafted a ruthlessly brave and funny memoir of searching for every kind of love--family, romantic, and of the self.BONUS: This edition includes a reading group guide.Praise for Little Failure"Hilarious and moving . . .

Kathleen later returned for her daughter, but her mother refused to hand her over, saying Sheena had settled into her new home.

What Kathleen didn't know was that Granny Morag would go on to allow, indeed facilitate, the horrific abuse of little Sheena by members of her own family. Sheena's uncle and others seemed to regard the sexual abuse of children as normal, and she was assaulted repeatedly, while her monstrous grandmother turned a blind eye. Sheena tells her full story with heart-breaking honesty. It is a tale of cruelty and horror, of growing up inside a severely dysfunctional family, but also of the remarkable resilience of the human spirit. Sheena's experiences are almost unimaginable and yet she has survived them as a reflective, caring woman who can both forgive and look ahead. It is a story which will make you angry but will also touch your heart.
