Hopper: A Journey into the American Dream — Tom Folsom


Nonfiction

Rod Lott
When Tom Folsom terms his new nonfiction work, Hopper, as “a rebel biography,” he’s not kidding. Not only is his subject a rebel, but so is his approach. A you-are-there POV, fonts that interrupt the narrative — you’ve never read a celebrity bio quite like it, and that’s certainly befitting of its star.

Nonfiction

Rod Lott
Curtis Harrington’s autobiography is how I imagine the man to have been: soft-spoken, honest and intelligent. Those wondering, “Who’s Curtis Harrington?” should know that is part of the book’s point. Here was a talented filmmaker who never quite got his due, for reasons that had nothing to do with creativity and everything to do with commerce. Here was an artist who worked in a system that had no interest in art.

Sooner swooner

Love, lust and lunch meats combine for a series of romance novels set in Oklahoma.


Fiction

Sarah Lobban
Cat Johnson is a perfectionist. As a bestselling romance author, she knows that chemistry between a heroine and hero must be measured as precisely as something in a laboratory — the right blend of love, lust and heartache.
