“We are born haunted,” he said, his voice weak, but still clear. “Haunted by
our fathers and mothers and daughters, and by people we don’t remember.
We are haunted by otherness, by the path not taken, by the life unlived. We
are haunted by the changing winds and the ebbing tides of history. And
even as our own ame burns brightest, we are haunted by the embers of the
frst dying fre. But mostly,” said Lord Jim, “we are haunted by ourselves.”

West of Here 
FUN FACT:
 
In his teens, Evison was the founding member and frontman of the Seattle punk bandMarch of Crimes, which included future members of Pearl Jam and Soundgarden.

Claire DeWitt, a private investigator from Brooklyn, comes to post-Katrina New Orleans to look for anAssistant District Attorney who disappeared after the storm. She learned her trade by studying withher mentor Constance Darling and uses the 1959 French manual
Detection 
by Jacques Silette as
her bible. Her methods are unconventional to say the least. Rather than speak with his known enemies
or interview his friends, Claire relies on dreams, drugs and the I Ching, among other things. As shecatches up with old acquaintances and meets some shady characters of the New Orleans streets,we accompany her on a journey through a ravaged city and get a glimpse into the chaotic upbringing that brought her to where she is now – the self-designated world’s greatest PI. Her unusual style andher quirky search are engaging and leave the reader anxious for the next mystery into which Clairewill be drawn. - Sydne, Book Buyer, Atlanta, GA$24.00

 Victoria Jones has lived in 32 foster homes by the time she turns 18. At this point she leaves a grouphome and lives on the streets in San Francisco. A compassionate florist takes her on as an assistant
when she realizes she has a special feel for flowers. She not only excels at floral arrangements, she uses
 the Victorian method of communication by sending messages through the meaning of flowers (daffodils
mean new beginnings, thistle means misanthropy, hyacinth means constancy.) The story of the 18-year-old Victoria is told along side that of her at 9 years old, hoping to be adopted by Elizabeth, a foster mother.
The unhappy ending of the earlier story informs the rest of Victoria’s life and her struggle to develop trusting relationships. This is a lovely story of using the outdated method of flowers to communicate
in the modern world. You will cringe, empathize and ultimately be warmed by Victoria’s journey.

Fractured fairy tales with sharp pointy teeth: Loory’s collection of short contemporary fables is unlike
anything I’ve come across. There’s something hypnotic and dreamy about Loory’s prose that only
serves to set the hook deeper. Sad and funny and occasionally scary, these are the kind of stories that stick in your brain pan. - Matt, VP of Book Operations, Los Angeles, CA$15.00
