What happens when a silo falls silent? Maya has been sent to Silo 23 to investigate.

Unplugged from the grid, the silo appears to be dead, rotted from within.

But what Maya finds is a silo that is anything but deceased.

Shut off from the outside world and other silos, Silo 23 has evolved into something unexpected, something more horrifying than Maya could have anticipated.

The Postcolonial Historical

Author : H. Dalley
Published by SpringerPublished since 2014-10-17

The Postcolonial Historical Novel is the first systematic work to examine how the historical novel has been transformed by its appropriation in postcolonial writing.

It proposes new ways to understand literary realism, and explores how the relationship between history and fiction plays out in contemporary African and Australasian writing.

The Confessions of Al

Author : Loren D. Estleman
Published by Forge BooksPublished since 2013-06-11

Multiple award-winner Loren D.

Estleman has produced a major biographical novel on the infamous Mobster known as Scarface, rigorously researched and deftly nuanced to offer an intimate portrait of the gangster whose terrible crimes and larger-than-life persona have both fascinated and appalled the world for nearly a century; whose legacy is still widely debated; and whose brutally ambitious career in the Mafia continues to inspire filmmakers and writers to plumb its excesses and its contradictions.

In 1944, after Al Capone has been released from prison, J.

Edgar Hoover assigns an FBI junior agent to insinuate himself into Capone's life and gain his trust so that Hoover can nail as many of Capone's Mob confederates as possible.

Capone, suffering from the neurological effects of syphilis, is alternately lucid, full of the passion and energy that fueled his rise to the pinnacle of American crime...and rambling or ranting, the broken shell of a man released from prison so he could die at home with his family.

With the superb narrative gifts honed in dozens of novels, Estleman has captured the essence of this American icon as never before.

With subtly nuanced portrayals of those in Capone's circle—his underrated wife Mae Capone, members of the Chicago Outfit including the deadly Frank Nitti—as well as his nemesis, J.

Edgar Hoover, Hoover's secretary Helen Gandy and others, The Confessions of Al Capone is a major literary achievement.

Philosophy and the

Author : Alan H. Goldman
Published by OUP OxfordPublished since 2013-04-05

Alan H.

Goldman presents an original and lucid account of the relationship between philosophy and the novel.

In the first part, on philosophy of novels, he defends theories of literary value and interpretation.

Literary value, the value of literary works as such, is a species of aesthetic value.

Goldman argues that works have aesthetic value when they simultaneously engage all our mental capacities: perceptual, cognitive, imaginative, and emotional.

This view contrasts with now prevalent narrower formalist views of literary value.

According to it, cognitive engagement with novels includes appreciation of their broad themes and the theses these imply, often moral and hence philosophical theses, which are therefore part of the novels' literary value.

Interpretation explains elements of works so as to allow readers maximum appreciation, so as to maximize the literary value of the texts as written.

Once more, Goldman's view contrasts with narrower views of literary interpretation, especially those which limit it to uncovering what authors intended.

One implication of Goldman's broader view is the possibility of incompatible but equally acceptable interpretations, which he explores through a discussion of rival interpretations of Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises.

Goldman goes on to test the theory of value by explaining the immense appeal of good mystery novels in its terms.

The second part of the book, on philosophy in novels, explores themes relating to moral agency—moral development, motivation, and disintegration—in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn, John Irving's The Cider House Rules, and Joseph Conrad's Nostromo.

By narrating the course of characters' lives, including their inner lives, over extended periods, these novels allow us to vicariously experience the characters' moral progressions, positive and negative, to learn in a more focused way moral truths, as we do from real life experiences.

A Dual

Author : Joanna Hershon
Published by Published since 2013

For readers of Rules of Civility and The Marriage Plot, Joanna Hershon’s A Dual Inheritance is an engrossing novel of passion, friendship, betrayal, and class—and their reverberations across generations.

Autumn 1962: Ed Cantowitz and Hugh Shipley meet in their final year at Harvard.

Ed is far removed from Hugh’s privileged upbringing as a Boston Brahmin, yet his drive and ambition outpace Hugh’s ambivalence about his own life.

These two young men form an unlikely friendship, bolstered by a fierce shared desire to transcend their circumstances.

But in just a few short years, not only do their paths diverge—one rising on Wall Street, the other becoming a kind of global humanitarian—but their friendship ends abruptly, with only one of them understanding why.

Can a friendship define your view of the world? Spanning from the Cuban Missile Crisis to the present-day stock market collapse, with locations as diverse as Dar es Salaam, Boston, Shenzhen, and Fishers Island, A Dual Inheritance asks this question, as it follows not only these two men, but the complicated women in their vastly different lives.

And as Ed and Hugh grow farther and farther apart, they remain uniquely—even surprisingly—connected.

Advance praise for A Dual Inheritance “A Dual Inheritance is a big, captivating, multigenerational sweep of a romance, ranging from Africa to China to New England’s blue-blooded enclaves.

With deftness and swagger, Joanna Hershon spins the intertwining of two Harvard men’s lives into a searching exploration of class and destiny in late-twentieth-century America.”—Jennifer Egan, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of A Visit from the Goon Squad “Joanna Hershon has written a vivid, elegant novel that deftly roams the decades and the globe in telling a story about friendship, family, and the murky area in between.

A Dual Inheritance is a rich and satisfying read.”—Maggie Shipstead, author of Seating Arrangements “Simultaneously a riveting story of two very different families and a portrait of the United States through the boom and bust decades .



Think of Anne Tyler and Tom Wolfe, both.

This marvelous novel is a mix of heartache and history.

I just couldn’t stop reading, and when it was over I felt sad the experience had ended.”—Victor LaValle, author of The Devil in Silver “Joanna Hershon is further evidence of a pleasing trend set off by Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom and Jeffrey Eugenides’s The Marriage Plot: big books about American politics, social customs, and family dynamics that seek to update and relocate the brilliantly compelling English nineteenth-century novel.

I envy and admire Hershon’s ability to so convincingly display the complex intimacies of multigenerational love and friendship.

This is a book to lose yourself in.”—Antonya Nelson, author of Bound “Wise, heartfelt, and beautifully written, A Dual Inheritance is about the big things: love, work, family, money.

It earns its ambitions and is astonishingly good.

I just loved this novel.”—Joshua Henkin, author of The World Without You “A Dual Inheritance is deep and beautiful and humane.

It has a massive scope and a social conscience, and yet is also incredibly intimate.

What an accomplished novel; it truly took my breath away.”—Jennifer Gilmore, author of The Mothers
