The response to Nancy Pearl’s surprise bestseller Book Lust was astounding: the Seattle librarian even became the model for the now-famous Librarian Action Figure. Readers everywhere welcomed Pearl’s encyclopedic but discerning filter on books worth reading, and her Rule of 50 (give a book 50 pages before deciding whether to continue; but readers over 50 must read the same number of pages as their age) became a standard MO.

Guernica

Of all the great paintings in the world, Picasso's Guernica has had a more direct impact on our consciousness than perhaps any other. In this absorbing and revealing book, Gijs van Hensbergen tells the story of this masterpiece. Starting with its origin in the destruction of the Basque town of Gernika in the Spanish Civil War, the painting is then used as a weapon in the propaganda battle against Fascism. Later it becomes the nucleus of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the detonator for the Big Bang of Abstract Expressionism in the late 1940s. This tale of passion and politics shows the transformation of this work of art into an icon of many meanings, up to its long contested but eventually triumphant return to Spain in 1981.

". . . unleashes a riveting, intense, and chilling tale of justice denied, vengeance, and murder." ~Rave Reviews Holly Kaufman's heart is closed to love. She never shared what those frat brothers had done to her two decades ago, but when she’s asked to join a support group, she hesitates only briefly. Now mature women, the former coeds have only one item on their agenda--revenge. Holly is chosen to feed information to a reporter without implicating the group. David Wells is the best man for the job. David smells a prize-winning story, and Holly Kaufman looks like his best bet for unearthing the truth.

Unfortunately, she's now a prime suspect and her only hope of proving innocence lies with the man who's awakening her passion but cannot be trusted.
