Trashed

Every week we pile our rubbish out on the pavement. We go to work and when we return it's gone. Like magic! The reality is anything but, of course. Trashed, Derf Backderf's follow-up to the critically acclaimed, award-winning national bestseller My Friend Dahmer, is a working man's epic. An ode to the crap job of all crap jobs-but anyone who has ever been trapped in a soul-sucking gig can relate to this tale. Trashed takes place after Derf graduates high school, when he and his childhood pals find themselves working as garbagemen in their Midwestern hometown. Together they clean the streets of pile after pile of stinking garbage, overcoming the unique difficulties of each season and battling small-town bureaucrats and nuisances, all while trying to decide what they want to do with their lives. Interspersed are non-fiction pages that detail the history of trash, the staggering volume of garbage that is produced every day, the nuts and bolts of how our trash is disposed of beyond curbside recycling and what happens to it once it's removed from our houses, our streets and our office buildings. Inspired by Derf's own experiences, Trashed (like My Friend Dahmer) is a hilarious, stomach-churning, in-depth examination of this vast, unknown world, taking readers to a place they have never been before, in a way that only Derf, and comics, can.

The futuristic hardboiled noir that Lauren Beukes calls "sharp as a paper-cut" about a garbage man turned kill-for-hire. Spademan used to be a garbage man. That was before the dirty bomb hit Times Square, before his wife was killed, and before the city became a blown-out shell of its former self. Now he's a hitman. In a near-future New York City split between those who are wealthy enough to "tap in" to a sophisticated virtual reality, and those who are left to fend for themselves in the ravaged streets, Spademan chose the streets. When his latest client hires him to kill the daughter of a powerful evangelist, he must navigate between these two worlds - the wasteland reality and the slick fantasy - to finish his job, clear his conscience, and make sure he's not the one who winds up in the ground.  1.

The dozens of artists and craftspeople featured in this volume create miniature representations of real-world scenes - everything from housewares, such as a thumb-sized rice cooker, to storefronts and cliffside dwellings suspended in test tubes, all the way up to entire multi-story buildings, with every detail preserved inside and out. Each of these exquisite works tells an intriguing story, encapsulating history, culture and memory, and elevating everyday items - the signage on the side of a garbage can, a rusted downspout - to objects worthy of artistic representation, prompting us through this striking shift of scale to perceive the world in whole new ways. Among the featured artists, Tatsuya Tanaka brings Japanese iconography into his master work Miniature Calendar, while Joshua Smith from Australia keeps streets and addresses and memory alive by re-creating them in miniature, freezing them in time, complete with weeds and water stains. This book not only digs into the stories behind the works, but provides guidance for those who are ready to try their own hand at mini crafts. Three masters share their inspirations and techniques by revealing a detailed process of a single masterpiece.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From Tess Gerritsen, bestselling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series, her stunning first thriller! A beautiful young woman's corpse is found dumped in a garbage-strewn alley. Now laid out in the office of medical examiner Kat Novak is an unidentified body that betrays no secrets-except for a matchbook clutched in one stiff hand, seven numbers scrawled inside. When a second victim is discovered, Kat begins to fear that a serial killer is stalking the streets, using a deadly drug to do his dirty work. The police are skeptical. The mayor won't listen. One of the town's most prominent citizens, with a missing daughter of his own, is also Kat's chief suspect. As the death toll rises, Kat races to expose a deadly predator who is close enough to touch her. Praise for Tess Gerritsen "[The author] has a knack for creating great characters and mysterious plots that seem straightforward but also dazzle with complexity and twists."-Associated Press "[Gerritsen] has an imagination that allows her to conjure up depths of human behavior so dark and frightening that she makes Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft seem like goody-two-shoes."-Chicago Tribune "One of the most versatile voices in thriller fiction today."-The Providence Journal Previously published as Peggy Sue Got Murdered

A kid who considers himself an epic fail discovers the transformative power of love when he deals with adoption in this novel from Cynthia Kadohata, winner of the Newbery Medal and the National Book Award. Eleven-year-old Jaden is adopted, and he knows he’s an "epic fail". That’s why his family is traveling to Kazakhstan to adopt a new baby - to replace him, he’s sure. And he gets it. He is incapable of stopping his stealing, hoarding, lighting fires, aggressive running, and obsession with electricity. He knows his parents love him, but he feels...nothing. But when they get to Kazakhstan, it turns out the infant they’ve travelled for has already been adopted, and literally within minutes are faced with having to choose from six other babies. While his parents agonize, Jaden is more interested in the toddlers. One, a little guy named Dimash, spies Jaden and barrels over to him every time he sees him. Jaden finds himself increasingly intrigued by and worried about Dimash. Already three years old and barely able to speak, Dimash will soon age out of the orphanage, and then his life will be as hopeless as Jaden feels now. For the first time in his life, Jaden actually feels something that isn’t pure blinding fury, and there’s no way to control it, or its power. From camels rooting through garbage like raccoons, to eagles being trained like hunting dogs, to streets that are more pothole than pavement, Half a World Away is Cynthia Kadohata’s latest spark of a novel. 1.

One day on the porch of her "new home" in the hills of Los Angeles, Xena, a rescued seven-year-old brindle Great Dane, opens a conversation with her two best friends, Oso (an 18-month-old rescued Golden Retriever/Chow mix) and Oscar (a 10-year-old rescued Boxer) with the question, "Like, how did we all get here to Los Angeles?" Xena had originally started out as a potential show dog-or at least that's what she had been told by her first owner. Born and raised in "the Valley" of Chatsworth, California, she speaks with a "valley girl" accent and carries herself as a princess. Due to mysterious circumstances, at the age of 19 months she was taken from her pampered life and left at a rescue shelter. Enter Jeanie, her wacky, eccentric new human, who sees the beauty in this poor, skinny creature and rescues her. Oso, at the age of four months old, narrowly escaped the clutches of evil dog catchers in Cabo San Lucas. Born on the streets, he and his siblings enjoyed the freedom of living off of the good graces of humans and their garbage cans until dog catchers came and took all but Oso away. Rescued by a young couple (Saul and Rebecca, their two daughters Hannah and Marie, and their cat Sushi) - he is brought to Los Angeles where he now lives directly across the street from Xena and Oscar. The three pals now describe their sorrowful pasts with one another and then decide to form their own pack as "Los Diggities". Joyful in their new homes and friendships, Xena the "princess from the valley", Oscar, the "wise old sage", and Oso, the young, reckless "puppy", vow to always stick together as friends forever. 1.
