Love In The Present Tense: Catherine Ryan Hyde
For five years Pearl has managed to keep the past from catching up to her and her bright, frail five-year-old son. Life has given her every reason to mistrust people, but circumstances force her to trust her neighbor Mitch with watching Leonard while she goes off to work. Then one day Pearl drops her son off, and never returns. They are an unlikely pair: Mitch is a young, unattached business owner; and Leonard is a precocious, five-year-old boy. But together they must find a way to move forward in the wake of Pearl´s unexplained disappearance. Their bond as parent and child shifts and endures, even as Mitch must eventually surrender Leonard to a two-parent home. Is it possible to love the people who can´t always be there for us? The answers will surprise and move you. As their lives unfold, profound questions emerge about the nature of love and family. Ultimately, this novel´s richest reward is watching Mitch and Leonard grow up together, through the power and the magic of the human heart. 1. Language: English.

For producer-wunderkind Gary Usher, Sagittarius was the outcome of months holed up in the studio with like-minded friends: Curt Boettcher, Bruce Johnston, Glen Campbell, the Firesign Theatre and others. The hit single, ´My World Fell Down´, debuted in 1967. ´Present Tense´ - shimmering, dense, and relentlessly melodic - quite simply relocated the goals of contemporary pop songwriting and arranging. Mastered in the best Sundazed tradition, ´Present Tense´ chronicles the epitome of California sunshine rock and the Summer Of Love - it´s the sound of the Mamas and Papas, the Beach Boys and Claude Debussy having an Easter egg hunt on Phil Spector´s lawn. 20 tracks, including rare single versions and 7 previously unissued tracks.

The New York Times best-selling author of Winter´s Tale and A Soldier of the Great War, Mark Helprin reveals a powerful, rapturous novel set in a present-day Paris caught between violent unrest and its well-known, inescapable glories. Seventy-four-year-old Jules Lacour - a maître at Paris-Sorbonne, cellist, widower, veteran of the war in Algeria, and child of the Holocaust - must find a balance between his strong obligations to the past and the attractions and beauties of life and love in the present. In the midst of what should be an effulgent time of life, with its days bright with music, family, and rowing on the Seine, Jules is confronted headlong and all at once by a series of challenges to his principles, livelihood, and home, forcing him to grapple with his complex past and find a way forward. He risks fraud to save his terminally ill infant grandson, matches wits with a renegade insurance investigator, is drawn into an act of savage violence, and falls deeply, excitingly in love with a young cellist who is a third his age. Against the backdrop of an exquisite and knowing vision of Paris and the way it can uniquely shape a life, he forges a denouement that is staggering in its humanity, elegance, and truth. In the intoxicating beauty of its prose and emotional amplitude of its storytelling, Mark Helprin´s Paris in the Present Tense is a soaring achievement, a deep, dizzying look at a life through the purifying lenses of art and memory. 1.

Autumn felt completely lost after her lover betrayed her with another futa. But a chance gloryhole encounter at a female- and futa-only nightclub teaches her that love can be found in all sorts of crazy places!THE FUTA LOVERS OF CLUB F is over 15,000 words of both romantic and hardcore sex between futanari, with a dash of hot threesome action thrown in for good measure. ----- PG Excerpt ----- Autumn shivered with excitement. The coffee in her hands was cool, and she had barely taken a sip from it; all her focus was on the impending meeting. She wondered what Dashay would look like. Her brain wrestled with what to say. She desperately wanted everything to go well. She ran her hands nervously up and down her thighs. Her red jeans chafed her erection, and she cursed herself for not going with something more relaxed. Her watch beeped. She tugged the loose sleeve of her casual black and white striped top back and saw that a message had come through. Grand entrance in 3 2 1!The brunette futas heart pounded and she looked up. The glass doors slid open, and she held her breath as in walked...A skinny college kid with a patchy beard.She breathed. Girl, get it together. She tried her best to calm down, but it was like she was sitting on hot coals. Fidgeting, she kept her eyes trained on the entrance, and grew more and more tense as nobody entered. Was this a joke? Was she being stood up? Or had she stupidly gone to the wrong café? She swiped through her messages again, and confirmed that yes, she was where she should be. And she had told Dashay that she would be sitting right here, next to the-Autumn? Is that you?She jumped, spilling coffee on her sleeve.Oh god, sorry! A toned black woman in a white gym tee and colorful yoga pants reached for the tissue dispenser and pressed a bundle of them against Autumns sleeve. She had deep, almost black eyes, and a thin silver ring through her left nostril. Her head was shaved on both sides, with a short, bleach-blonde mohawk running down the middle. Her lips were a deep shade of purple, and they opened in a brilliant smile the moment Autumns eyes met hers.She was stunning.

Brilliant and tense, Dany Laferrière´s first novel, How to Make Love to a Negro Without Getting Tired, is as fresh and relevant today as when it was first published in Canada in 1985. With ribald humor and a working-class intellectualism on par with Charles Bukowski´s or Henry Miller´s, Laferrière´s narrator wanders the streets and slums of Montreal, has sex with white women, and writes a book to save his life.With this novel, Laferrière began a series of internationally acclaimed social and political novels about the love of the world, and the world of sex, including Heading South and I Am a Japanese Writer. It launched Laferrière as one of the literary world´s finest provocateurs and continues to draw strong comparisons to the writings of James Baldwin, Henry Miller, Charles Bukowski, and Jack Kerouac. The book was made into a feature film and translated into several languages this is the first U.S. edition.
