A writer of exhilarating freedom and daring.” —Zadie Smith, Harper’s Bazaar "Impossible to put down.” —Ling Ma, author of Severance No one wants what no one wants. And how do we even know what we want? How do we know we’re ready to take it? Edie is stumbling her way through her twenties—sharing a subpar apartment in Bushwick, clocking in and out of her admin job, making a series of inappropriate sexual choices. She is also haltingly, fitfully giving heat and air to the art that simmers inside her. And then she meets Eric, a digital archivist with a family in New Jersey, including an autopsist wife who has agreed to an open marriage—with rules. As if navigating the constantly shifting landscapes of contemporary sexual manners and racial politics weren’t hard enough, Edie finds herself unemployed and invited into Eric’s home—though not by Eric. She becomes a hesitant ally to his wife and a de facto role model to his adopted daughter. Edie may be the only Black woman young Akila knows. Irresistibly unruly and strikingly beautiful, razor-sharp and slyly comic, sexually charged and utterly absorbing, Raven Leilani’s Luster is a portrait of a young woman trying to make sense of her life—her hunger, her anger—in a tumultuous era. It is also a haunting, aching description of how hard it is to believe in your own talent, and the unexpected influences that bring us into ourselves along the way.

BOOK EXCERPT:

As an undercover operative for the Constellation League, Marcos Starlaw’s current assignment is a dangerous mission. Posing as a low-end gem merchant, he must infiltrate the Delta Seven mining colony to discern whether pirates have overrun the planet as his superiors suspect. Still, he expects to return home soon, back into the arms of the many women who eagerly await his return. Burned and scarred by torture, Nova Drayton has lived the past two years in a cave, waiting for someone to help her people. The governor of her home world is a lying, thieving traitor who has taken up with the Limaxian pirates that have overrun her society. They’ve killed many innocents, including her parents and fiancé. Realizing law enforcers may never come—that they’ve likely forgotten their promise to so much as patrol her beleaguered colony—Nova now hates everything having to do with the vaunted Constellation League and its pretentious officers. When Marcos comes face to face with the pirates and a weapon of mass destruction, he makes a critical mistake, blowing his cover. If Nova doesn’t help Marcos escape the pirates … well, he’s already one heartbeat away from taking his last breath. How can he convince a girl who’s lived through hell that he’s the one she’s been waiting for? With nothing left but their own ingenuity, the pair must find a way to ally or die at the hands of cutthroats. Sensuality Level: Sensual

BOOK EXCERPT:

Sure, the little town of Luster, Idaho is isolated, and most of its inhabitants go back for generations, but does that fully explain the unusual camaraderie among its citizens, their high instance of financial success, or, most notably, their acceptance of events that happened years before as current? When an investment deal brings Glenda Prince to Luster, she's quickly engulfed in the generosity of everyone from an elderly farm couple to a cherubic hayseed of a physician and the friendly one-eyed waitress at the Pancake Chalet, but trouble awaits. The young man who had obsessively stalked Glenda years before and she thought she'd left far behind…is now a member of the New Age commune in town, an organization that drives the less spiritual folks in Luster nuts. Glenda has trouble making connections with her local business partner, which forces her to stay in town longer than anticipated long enough to be once again picked up on her stalker's radar, long enough to be caught up in a disaster that affects the whole town, and long enough to meet the reclusive Wanda, an encounter that will change her life and the lives of others.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Do you really value the objects around you or are they just "things" to you? The premise of this book is that part of the pleasure of life-contentment that we can cultivate no matter how much or how little we have-comes from the conscious appreciation of the beauty and the significance of everyday things. Through photographs and poems, the author takes you on a voyage of discovery through the world around you. You are shown, sometimes playfully and sometimes profoundly, that even the simplest of things-a shirt and tie, a kitchen colander, a closed door, or a blue butterfly-can have a shining beauty, secret story, and surprising meaning. Along the way, you are gently reminded that such objects deserve to be "warmed with much handling" and gazed upon with pleasure and gratitude as the tiny treasures they are.
