A tantalizing LA novel fans of Michael Connelly and James Ellroy. "More than refurbished L.A. Noir. The scenes where Farrell visits with the patients [at UCLA Children's Hospital], canny judges of character and tuning forks for emotional truth, carry devastating weight, and Nova's smooth prose brings the roiling undercurrents to the surface. He's fashioned a series character well worth revisiting. " —The New York Times Quinn Farrell is a modern-day fixer in Los Angeles — he cleans up other people’s messes. Rich people’s messes. For a lot of money. He’s so good that he’s become indispensable to Hollywood moguls and he’s managed to construct a working moral framework so that he can live with himself. That is until a new neighbor moves next door, Rose Marie, who works with terminally ill teens. Against all his survival instincts, Farrell falls in love with Rose Marie and then her uncanny patients, who shine a spotlight into his soul. When a client steps over the line and Farrell is hired to clean up after a reprehensible crime, his carefully constructed ethical house of cards comes crashing down. Double Solitaire is the first in a series of LA-based thrillers featuring Quinn Farrell,. As with all Nova’s deeply intuitive fiction, Farrell is an unforgettable living force in a setting that needs no fiction to be any weirder than it is: contemporary Hollywood.

The actress Teresa Wright (1918–2005) lived a rich, complex, magnificent life against the backdrop of Golden Age Hollywood, Broadway and television. There was no indication, from her astonishingly difficult—indeed, horrifying—childhood, of the success that would follow, nor of the universal acclaim and admiration that accompanied her everywhere. Her two marriages—to the writers Niven Busch (The Postman Always Rings Twice; Duel in the Sun) and Robert Anderson (Tea and Sympathy; I Never Sang for My Father)—provide a good deal of the drama, warmth, poignancy and heartbreak of her life story. “I never wanted to be a star,” she told the noted biographer Donald Spoto at dinner in 1978. “I wanted only to be an actress.” She began acting on the stage in summer stock and repertory at the age of eighteen. When Thornton Wilder and Jed Harris saw her in an ingénue role, she was chosen to understudy the part of Emily in the original production of Our Town (1938), which she then played in touring productions. Samuel Goldwyn saw her first starring role on Broadway—in the historic production of Life with Father—and at once he offered her a long contract. She was the only actress to be nominated for an Academy Award for her first three pictures (The Little Foxes; The Pride of the Yankees; and Mrs. Miniver), and she won for the third film. Movie fans and scholars to this day admire her performance in the classics Shadow of a Doubt and The Best Years of Our Lives. The circumstances of her tenure at Goldwyn, and the drama of her breaking that contract, forever changed the treatment of stars. Wright's family and heirs appointed Spoto as her authorized biographer and offered him exclusive access to her letters and papers. Major supporting players in this story include Robert Anderson, Alfred Hitchcock, William Wyler, Karl Malden, Elia Kazan, Jean Simmons, Dorothy McGuire, Bette Davis, George Cukor, Marlon Brando, George C. Scott, the artist Al Hirschfeld, Stella Adler, and more.

Writer Jeffrey Poppy writes a stunningly candid book based on his life experiences in Jeff the Roofer: Reflections of a Double Negative Life. Poppy was born into life with drama-as a newborn he had to have a blood transfusion. Growing up with an abusive father, he relived the abuse by self-destruction through his teenage years and into adulthood. Poppy played out his destruction in various ways-a near death gunshot wound, alcoholism, drugs, three failed marriages, six trips to rehab and then homeless. All avenues led to the same place-his own inner demons, until he entered an in-house treatment center. Upon release, Poppy traveled to Amsterdam and met his muse who inspired his creative poetry. Poppy entered a song-writing contest, won second place and traveled back to the United States landing in Nashville, Tennessee. He recorded 42 of his own songs-all inspired by his tenuous and amazing journey that finally released his demons and enabled him to find his own path. Jeff the Roofer: Reflections of a Double Negative Life begins with the song, The Times, that illustrates his quests and questions of life's meaning for him, and the song, Just Another Day takes him on the journey from inner strife to see freedom and triumph over self- destructive and abusive ways. Interwoven with heart wrenching storytelling are 28 compositions that chronicle his unsteady journey to recovery. This beautifully descriptive book is a compelling and inspiring narration of prose and lyrics that expertly encapsulate one man's escape from the cycle of abuse and self-destruction. Jeffrey Poppy is a writer, poet, songwriter, and craftsman. Mr. Poppy is currently writing his second novel and lives with his beloved dog in Durant, Oklahoma.

"Young playwrights don't come much hotter than Phyllis Nagy" (Daily Telegraph) Includes her three Royal Court -performed plays Weldon Rising "Here is the best new play I have seen in many months...This play is exciting because it is well written, unusually constructed and morally serious." (Financial Times); in Butterfly Kiss "Nagy captures the texture of a life and writes short, vivid, often disturbingly erotic scenes...it's a play that leaves me proclaiming Nagy a writer of real talent" (Guardian), Disappeared (winner of the Mobil Prize,1995) "A piece that gets right under your skin...There's no neat solution to Nagy's conundrum, just a fog of fear, despair, and most remarkably of all, a final mirage of escape. Spine-tingling stuff" (Daily Telegraph) The Strip, "kaleidoscopic and hugely accomplished dissection of fate, love and chance" (Independent) "Each play I see by Phyllis Nagy confirms me in the belief that she is the finest playwright to have emerged in the 1990s" (Financial Times)
