Stein's A Sudden Light (#422) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

The author of The Art of Racing in the Rain pens a new novel, this one centering on four generations of a once terribly wealthy and influential timber family who have fallen from grace.

Dennis Lehane's World Gone By (#423) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

New York Times bestselling author Dennis Lehane vividly recreates the rise of the mob during World War II with a psychologically and morally complex novel of blood, crime passion, and vengeance.

Told with verve and skill, World Gone By is a superb work of historical fiction from one of "the most interesting and accomplished American novelists" (Washington Post) writing today.

David Treuer's Prudence (#425) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

Powerful and wholly original, Treuer delivers a story of desire, loss, and the search for connection in a riven world of race and class in a supposedly more innocent era. On a sweltering day in August 1942, Frankie Washburn returns to his family's rustic Minnesota resort for one last visit before he joins the war as a bombardier, headed for the darkened skies over Europe. Awaiting him at the Pines are those he's about to leave behind: his hovering mother; the distant father to whom he's been a disappointment; the Indian caretaker who's been more of a father to him than his own; and Billy, the childhood friend who over the years has become something much more intimate.
