Twelve year-old Basil knows he's special—he's been associating numbers with colors since he was a kid. His gift (or curse) has turned him into somewhat of a loner, but his world begins to change when he meets Tenzie, the new girl in school who has similar freakisms. She, too, has synesthesia (a condition in which one type of stimulation evokes the sensation of another). At first, Basil is somewhat annoyed with Tenzie's pushiness, but after Basil's estranged mother returns, his life is turned upside down . . . and Tenzie may be the only person to help him put it back together again. Once again, MJ Auch has written a thoughtful coming-of-age novel that explores friendship, family, and fitting in, in One Plus One Equals Blue.
"A Thousand Deaths Plus One" is the narrative of a search for the lost history of an obscure Nicaraguan photographer named Juan Castellón. In 1987, the author/narrator, while on an state visit to Poland, happened upon an exhibition of hitherto unknown photographs by Castellón, who had pursued a career in Europe between roughly 1870 and 1940. The discovery initiates an obsessive quest to recover the lost artist's history¿a quest that eventually carries the author from Vienna to Mallorca with points in between as he sifts through a trove of documentary evidence concerning a raffish cast of European and Central American characters. In alternating chapters Castellón offers his own story, from his bizarre conception in Nicaragua, to his education in France, to his nights of serious drinking with Rubén Darío, and lastly to a compromised finale in Nazi Germany. The result is a novel that may be said to personify the tragi-comic history of Nicaragua.
This story of a Hollywood wife’s newfound fame and her husband’s new identity as her plus one is told with “wit, warmth and candor” (New York Times Sunday Book Review). Alex Sherman-Zicklin is a mid-level marketing executive who never expected his wife’s fourteenth attempt at a TV pilot (about a housewife who runs a prostitution ring out of her suburban scrapbooking shop) to get produced. But now it’s been ordered to series and awarded an Emmy. Overnight, she’s sucked into a mad show-business vortex and he’s tasked with managing their new high-profile Hollywood lifestyle. Equally sudden is Alex’s newfound place in a posse of Plus Ones—men who are married to women whose success, income, and public recognition far surpasses their own. Now he’s wondering how he can regain the foreground in his own life in this “well observed, honest, and laugh-out-loud funny” novel (Matthew Weiner, creator of Mad Men). “Plus One is a smart and funny novel about Hollywood, but where it truly shines is in Noxon’s stunning and painfully accurate depiction of the complex rhythms and growing pains of a marriage.” —Jonathan Tropper, author of This Is Where I Leave You “Behind every great man there’s a great woman . . . and in Noxon’s telling, behind every great woman there’s a charming, deeply conflicted guy (sometimes holding a very expensive handbag). Hilarious and unflinching, Plus One is a funny, sharply observed, heartbreaking look at love, power, and happily-ever-after in Hollywood.” —Jennifer Weiner, author of Who Do You Love, The Next Best Thing, and Good in Bed “There are so many hilarious moments.” —Los Angeles Times “For fans of Rainbow Rowell and similar keenly insightful truth tellers, this fresh male take on modern relationships is too smart, focused, and funny to pass up.” —Library Journal “A brisk romp that’s sometimes laugh-out-loud funny as it deals with the serious issues of roles and communication in marriage.” —Booklist “A funny, sharply observed novel about a guy with a first-world problem—a wife who’s a hugely successful TV writer and producer—and the identity crisis that goes along with it.” —Tom Perrotta, author of Election and The Leftovers

We are in the midst of a revolution. It is a scientific revolution built upon the tools of molecular biology, with which we probe and prod the living world in ways unimaginable a few decades ago. Need to track a bacterium at the root of a hospital outbreak? No problem: the offending germ's complete genetic profile can be obtained in 24 hours. We insert human DNA into E. coli bacteria to produce our insulin. It is natural to look at biotechnology in the 21st century with a mix of wonder and fear. But biotechnology is not as 'unnatural' as one might think. All living organisms use the same molecular processes to replicate their genetic material and the same basic code to 'read' their genes. The similarities can be seen in their DNA. Here, John Archibald shows how evolution has been 'plugging-and-playing' with the subcellular components of life from the very beginning and continues to do so today. For evidence, we need look no further than the inner workings of our own cells. Molecular biology has allowed us to gaze back more than three billion years, revealing the microbial mergers and acquisitions that underpin the development of complex life. One Plus One Equals One tells the story of how we have come to this realization and its implications.
