Are You With Me? by Stephen Foster Book Summary:
When fifteen year-old Tom Radford moves with his mother Sally from Balham to a remote village in North Norfolk, he fully expects life to be different; but he has yet to discover just how different. His speedway-rider father has been killed in an accident, not heroically on the track but ignominiously on the street. Before he died, however, he had imbued his son with his own love of machines and speed. So when Tom finds himself in the back of a stolen car, driven by local wideboy Luke, he doesn't at first feel perturbed; until, that is, the car and its occupants find themselves upside-down on a lonely beach. Tom's coming-of-age, in the company of some very strange and eccentric characters, is brilliantly realized in Stephen Foster's second novel, all the confusion and bravado of adolescence laid bare. And fittingly it is a car, an old Mercedes 180, which proves to be Tom's passport to maturity: to maturity and to a very eerie conclusion in the tunnel under the Pont d'Alma in Paris.

Safe Delivery by Jim Sanderson Book Summary:
Jerri Johnson used to think she wanted to teach, but she works instead for Sam's Investigating Services in downtown San Antonio. Tracking down bail jumpers and serving subpoenas isn't a romantic way to make a living, but San Antonio, even in the sweaty summer, is a city of ghosts. Jerri is haunted by memories of a love affair with Vincent Fuentes, a Mexican intellectual who has returned to San Antonio and is trying to enlist her in a radical plot involving running guns across the border. Her friend Joe Parr, an aging Texas Ranger, is visited at night by the ghost of his wife, but by day he keeps an eye on Jerri, Vincent Fuentes, and Vincent's father, Palo, a retired gangster who is now a solid citizen of San Antonio's West Side. From the city's shady riverbanks and dark bars to the backyards of the well-to-do, there is tragedy in the way this atmospheric story plays itself out, but above all there is the ambiguity of a world where moral distinctions are as fuzzy as the humid air of San Antonio, a world where no one is young enough to draw fine distinctions between right and wrong.

How We Remember by Michael E. Hasselmo Book Summary:
Episodic memory proves essential for daily function, allowing us to remember where we parked the car, what time we walked the dog, or what a friend said earlier. In How We Remember, Michael Hasselmo draws on recent developments in neuroscience to present a new model describing the brain mechanisms for encoding and remembering such events as spatiotemporal trajectories. He reviews physiological breakthroughs on the regions implicated in episodic memory, including the discovery of grid cells, the cellular mechanisms of persistent spiking and resonant frequency, and the topographic coding of space and time. These discoveries inspire a theory for understanding the encoding and retrieval of episodic memory not just as discrete snapshots but as a dynamic replay of spatiotemporal trajectories, allowing us to "retrace our steps" to recover a memory. In the main text of the book, he presents the model in narrative form, accessible to scholars and advanced undergraduates in many fields. In the appendix, he presents the material in a more quantitative style, providing mathematical descriptions appropriate for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in neuroscience or engineering.
Mr. Abaddon & Ollie, Before the Still by Ken Martinez Book Summary:
Greg Cottingham (GC-Tech, Microsoft) wrote about ‘Mr. Abaddon & Ollie, Before The Still’: I must say, I really love this story! You unique use of descriptive adjectives really paints great imagery. The scenery and surroundings involve all the senses (like the Kitchen scene has: flavor, aroma, visuals and he Oakland, CA scene with: various musics in the background. I also love the way the writing appears to change pace and causes the reader to speed up and slow down to match what is happening in your mind. For example, when you are reading in bed, (I don’t want to destroy the effect.) the changes of time and local are immediate in some cases and seem to change in succession: (Hotel room to street corner to bus ride to smoky stage etc) ... this results in a quickening or sense of urgency in the reader as well (at least in my case). Then, in some cases there is the onset of the shades of gray and the Bird Elephant call that seems to usher in a change in scenery... the reader then expects a change of scenery. I found it interesting how you react to circumstances during this episodes - the fact that you never have time or consider saying "Stop!!! This is all wrong!!!" gives the reader a hint that this may be a dream.... (or not). You seem to go through all the scenes feeling like you should be there doing whatever you are doing at the given moment.. Overall, the reading (and afterwards) appears to mirror (pun intended) the Alice in Wonderland book that you were reading (or planning to read)... but instead of Wonderland's 19th century scenery and descriptions, the reader is presented with psychedelic motifs (sitar music, 60's rock lyrics). This really reveals a complexity to you that I did not know was there.
Prisoners of Truth by Jody Weiner Book Summary:
Intelligent, honest and hopeful, Prisoners of Truth is a modern morality tale of self-discovery filled with true-life courtroom drama and humor. Jody Weiner draws on thirty years experience as an attorney to masterfully weave a plot spanning four generations. Weiner's dynamic voice has been compared with Paulo Coelho's The Alchemist by writer and filmmaker Karl Francis: "They write with the same intentions and both deal with storytelling and reality with the same integrity, obliging the reader to engage truth in a deeply comic and spiritual manner." When prominent attorney Lucien Echo is accused of conspiring with a circuit court judge to fix a criminal case, Lucien’s fiance, Alex Carlton, recruits local journalist Ollie Katz to help clear Lucien’s name. Ollie has admired Lucien since college and seizes the opportunity for a by-line on the front page. But Ollie grows too fond of Alex along the way and must confront his own ethical issues. Alternating between Ollie’s narration of unfolding events and flashbacks to turbulent times, the story captures their generation's struggle to maintain idealism in the face of their own realities. As Lucien's day of reckoning approaches, will Ollie's infatuation cause him to cross the line? Multi-layered, provocative, and often

Fade by Darren Smith Book Summary:
"Perhaps the best way to describe just how much this book caught my imagination is to reveal that even almost a year after reading it, there are still scenes that I remember vividly, quotations that I can recall and to confess that I will never think of doughnuts with sprinkles in the same way again." "Brilliantly written love story captures your thoughts and emotions throughout the whole reading and long after it. The lucid and detailed narration provides multi layered complexity of each character's personality, startling revelations, creative turns of the plot." "Dramatic and touching, the author does a brilliant job of capturing the reader's attention and reeling them into the depths of his story telling.
