But they don’t know this yet.” So begins this exquisite novel about a Chinese American family living in 1970s small-town Ohio.

But when Lydia’s body is found in the local lake, the delicate balancing act that has been keeping the Lee family together is destroyed, tumbling them into chaos.

Boston Noir Boston Noir 2 The Complete Set from the Author: Dennis Lehane. "Dennis Lehane advises us not to judge the genre by its Hollywood images of sharp men in fedoras lighting cigarettes for femmes fatales standing in the dark alleys…[Lehane] writes persuasively of the gentrification that has…left people feeling crushed." --New York Times, on Boston Noir "The contributor list is delightfully quirky...The collection's unifying element is a deep understanding of Boston's Byzantine worlds of race and class--as seen terrifyingly in Andre Dubus's tale of milltown resentment and pampered preppies." --Boston Globe, on Boston Noir 2: The Classics Boston Noir & Boston Noir 2: The Complete Set combines all twenty-five stories from best seller Boston Noir, edited by Dennis Lehane, and its sequel, Boston Noir 2: The Classics, edited by Lehane, Mary Cotton, & Jaime Clarke; featuring Lehane's own "Animal Rescue," the basis for the motion picture The Drop, and twenty-four classic noir stories set throughout Boston.

Before We Croak from the Author: Larry Keveson. "It's time for those of us who remember how great our generation was to start thinking about what else we need to do Before We Croak. I agree with Mr. Keveson, we were the greatest, coolest, most evolutionary generation the world has ever seen, and for too many people on earth life still sucks. Clearly there's more to do. And as Keveson points out, us hippie bastards still have 20 year left, so clearly we'll be the ones to do it. That's what the 20 years are for, and that's what we're here to do. Question is, what needs doing and how are we to do it? What Keveson does nobly well in this book, is take The Bus a little Further towards reaching our always lofty goal, figuring out why the hell we're still alive!" Ken Kesey-The Astral Plane Dealer "Evolve, always evolve, my children, or I'll starve myself to death!" Mahatma Gandhi-The Causal Plane Dealer "Read it. I'm telling ya. I highly recommend this book. Very highly. So ya better read this book, Before Ya Croak!. I ain't kiddin!" God-The Taoly News
