You are at a nightclub talking to a girl with a shaved head. The club is either Heartbreak or the Lizard Lounge. All might become clear if you could just slip into the bathroom and do a little more Bolivian Marching Powder. Then again, it might not... So begins our nameless hero's trawl through the brightly lit streets of Manhattan, sampling all this wonderland has to offer yet suspecting that tomorrow's hangover may be caused by more than simple excess. Bright Lights, Big City is an acclaimed classic which marked Jay McInerney as one of the major writers of our time.

THE ULTIMATE HOSTILE TAKEOVER A visitor from beyond the solar system is planet shopping. A member of a dying species, he is looking for new real estate to annex. He finds it on planet earth. PLANET FOR SALE A genius at economics, he devises a plan to take over the planet without a single shot being fired. By masterfully manipulating a political and economic climate characterized by relaxed standards and minimal oversight, he surreptitiously succeeds in building a vast financial empire that transcends national boundaries and grows to encompass the balance of the world's vulnerable energy resources. Now he is only a couple of acquisitions away from checkmate in a game that must spell doom for humanity. At ground zero the task of preventing the total annihilation of the human species falls to two unlikely people-an entertainer and a recovering vampiress. The entertainer is none other than the King himself, Elvis Presley who, contrary to common belief, is alive and well and currently living incognito on the Big Island of Hawaii. The vampire is his sultry and mysterious longtime girlfriend, Desdemona. Together they are headed for a showdown with a formidable, soulless menace in the city that never sleeps. And the stakes could scarcely be higher .

Set in 1986, Bright Lights, Summer in the City focuses upon the lives of three schoolgirls, Summer Price, Sophie Lovejoy and Siobhan Smythe, who run away to the East End of London to seek their fame and fortune, aided and abetted by Eddy, a guitar-playing van driver. Like most naïve, young girls, they dream of being signed up by a record company and appearing on Top of the Pops. Little do they realise that the corrupt, seedier side of London life in the form of drug dealer Danny Diamond and his twin sister, Maxine, is about to throw a web of intrigue and corruption over them, like a spider ensnaring a fly.
