Long Night Moon

In stock

In New York City, at a time of great changes, a disillusioned young woman seeks escape from the broken civilization she has become trapped in. The untimely death of her estranged father casts doubt on everything she thought she knew about her family and a disquieting inheritance falls into her unsteady hands. 

Puzzling discoveries are made at her ancestral home, ultimately leading her into an untamed wilderness seeking answers to her mounting questions. Once there, she is drawn toward an ancient Native American shrine where her arrival is eagerly awaited and all is not what it seems. 

A trio of diverse companions make the trek at her side: James; a drug-addled New Yorker struggling to be reborn, Danielle; a free-spirited California girl whose love knows no bounds, and Kevin; a thick-skulled, thick-skinned good ol' boy from the hills of upstate New York. Though each of them joins the expedition for reasons of their own, it is not long before a greater purpose emerges. 

It quickly becomes apparent that the power of choice is both a blessing and a curse as the supernatural journey of self-discovery takes a deadly turn. The adventurers are forced to evolve or die in a confrontation with an antediluvian terror, even as they strive to discover their roles in the continuing evolution of mankind and the uncertain future that lies ahead. 

One thing alone is certain: the changes taking place within them have an external counterpart, and the world they left behind is not the world the survivors will return to.

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2011, Snowdrops is THE debut of 2011: A stunning novel of moral ambiguity, uncertainty and corruption. Snowdrops. That's what the Russians call them - the bodies that float up into the light in the thaw. Drunks, most of them, and homeless people who just give up and lie down into the whiteness, and murder victims hidden in the drifts by their killers. Nick has a confession. When he worked as a high-flying British lawyer in Moscow, he was seduced by Masha, an enigmatic woman who led him through her city: the electric nightclubs and intimate dachas, the human kindnesses and state-wide corruption. Yet as Nick fell for Masha, he found that he fell away from himself; he knew that she was dangerous, but life in Russia was addictive, and it was too easy to bury secrets - and corpses - in the winter snows...

The Sisters Brothers

Oregon, 1851. Eli and Charlie Sisters, notorious professional killers, are on their way to California to kill a man named Hermann Kermit Warm. On the way, the brothers have a series of unsettling and violent experiences in the Darwinian landscape of Gold Rush America. Charlie makes money and kills anyone who stands in his way; Eli doubts his vocation and falls in love. And they bicker a lot. Then they get to California, and discover that Warm is an inventor who has come up with a magical formula, which could make all of them very rich. What happens next is utterly gripping, strange and sad. Told in deWitt's darkly comic and arresting style, THE SISTERS BROTHERS is the kind of Western the Coen Brothers might write - stark, unsettling and with a keen eye for the perversity of human motivation. Like his debut novel ABLUTIONS, THE SISTERS BROTHERS is a novel about the things you tell yourself in order to be able to continue to live the life you find yourself in, and what happens when those stories no longer work. It is an inventive and strange and beautifully controlled piece of fiction, which shows an exciting expansion of Dewitt's range
