Alice in Chains

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/alice-in-chains-4...
Alice in Chains was the first of grunge's big four - ahead of Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden - to get a gold record and achieve national recognition. With the charismatic Layne Staley behind the microphone, they became one of the most influential and successful bands to come out of the Seattle music scene. But as the band got bigger, so did its problems. Acclaimed journalist David de Sola follows the members from their inauspicious beginnings at a warehouse under the Ballard Bridge through the history of the band, charting:- The local hair metal scene in Seattle during the 1980s- How drugs nearly destroyed the band and claimed the lives of Staley and founding bassist Mike Starr- Jerry Cantrell's solo career and Mike Starr's life after being fired from the band- The band's resurrection with William DuVall, the Atlanta singer/guitarist who stepped into Layne Staley's shoes. Based on a wealth of interviews with people with direct knowledge of the band and its history, many of whom are speaking on the record for the first time, Alice in Chains will stand as the definitive Alice in Chains biography for years to come.

https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/songs-in-ordinary-ti...
It's the summer of 1960 in Atkinson, Vermont. Maria Fermoyle is a strong but vulnerable divorced woman whose loneliness and ambition for her children make her easy prey for dangerous con man Omar Duvall. Marie's children are Alice, seventeen-involved with a young priest; Norm, sixteen-hotheaded and idealistic; and Benny, twelve-isolated and misunderstood, and so desperate for his mother's happiness that he hides the deadly truth he knows about Duvall. We also meet Sam Fermoyle, the children's alcoholic father; Sam's brother-in-law, who makes anonymous "love" calls from the bathroom of his failing appliance store; and the Klubock family, who-in contrast to the Fermoyles-live an orderly life in the house next door. Songs in Ordinary Time is a masterful epic of the everyday, illuminating the kaleidoscope of lives that tell the compelling story of this unforgettably family.

Love And Darker Passions

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/love-and-darker-passions...
Love and Darker Passions is a collection of provocative short stories by today's up-and-coming authors of dark, urban and Gothic fantasy. One man falls in love with an ancient monster, another becomes enchanted by a voice that drives him to a frenzy of self-punishment, and another can't understand three very odd days he's spending with his girlfriend. Award-winning author Karen Duvall sends a Millennial Alice through a very different looking glass, and acclaimed author Lee Barwood sends the Sighted bard of her upcoming series into the passionate world of faerie to find a child and a special destiny. Bestseller C.E. Murphy makes her twisted fairytale tell what drives a lover into the arms of her questionable beloved, and Tenea D. Johnson works a soul-stealing spell of magic. In Love and Darker Passions, edgy and cult fantasy authors combine their talents to make us question what inspires love, why we crave revenge against those who've stolen love from us, and why we despair when love's pain is lost.

Midnight Cactus

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/midnight-cactus-3...
The best-selling author of Hunting Unicorns returns with a stirring and suspenseful tale of love and the quest for freedom, vividly set in the wild lands between Arizona and the Mexican border. On the run from her claustrophobic marriage in London, Alice Coleman moves her two small children to the American desert hoping to find the solitude she craves but hadn't thought possible. But the vast and unruly southwest has room for the dreams of more than one fugitive-from Benjamin, an abandoned mining town's Mexican caretaker, to the immigrants who risk their lives to cross the border, to the laconic cowboy Duval, who Alice finds herself falling for. What seemed idyllic turns deadly as Alice must decide how much she is willing to sacrifice in order to preserve not only her freedom, but Benjamin and Duvall's as well. Building to a blistering climax, Midnight Cactus is both a perilous love story and a compelling exploration of the tension between unrealized dreams and the pull of family.

Mélodie du temps ordinaire

https://www.kobo.com/us/fr/ebook/melodie-du-temps-ordinaire...
Une oeuvre riche, un condensé d'humanité, où l'on voit les ravages de la pauvreté matérielle et morale, de l'amour non partagé et des mariages malheureux. Été 1960, Atkinson, petite ville ordinaire du Vermont. Divorcée d'un ivrogne pathétique qui vient encore parfois cogner la nuit à sa porte, Marie Fermoyle s'épuise à joindre les deux bouts, animée d'une ambition farouche pour ses trois enfants et portée par un orgueil qui l'empêche d'accepter l'aide de quiconque. Sa solitude va faire d'elle une proie toute désignée pour Omar Duvall, escroc minable et beau parleur, qui se présente un soir chez elle. Oscillant entre colère et résignation, englués dans leur mal-être adolescent, ni Alice ni Norm, les deux aînés, ne sauront s'opposer à Omar, dont la personnalité inquiétante se révélera peu à peu. Avide de voir sa mère enfin heureuse, le jeune Benjy, lui, taira obstinément son terrible secret: le jour même de l'arrivée de Duvall, il l'a vu poignarder un homme dans la forêt.À travers l'histoire des Fermoyle, à laquelle se trouve inextricablement liée celle de leurs proches et voisins, Mary McGarry Morris a écrit la chronique d'une petite communauté où s'affrontent l'espoir et la peur, le mensonge et la honte, l'obsession du péché et la piété, où se joue une lutte incessante entre la soif de réussite et l'amertume de l'échec. La force de l'intrigue et des personnages, la beauté du style, l'atmosphère lourde et envoûtante qui se dégage du roman en font une auvre à part, parmi les plus marquantes de la littérature américaine contemporaine.

Songs in Ordinary Time

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/songs-in-ordinary-time-2...
This New York Times-bestselling novel of a troubled family in 1960s Vermont is "t eeming with incident and characters, often foolish, even nasty, but always alive" (The New Yorker). It is the summer of 1960 in Atkinson, Vermont. With no help from her alcoholic ex-husband, Marie Fermoyle is raising three children on the edge of poverty. Her seventeen-year-old daughter, Alice, is becoming emotionally involved with a local priest in a staunchly Catholic town that disapproves of Marie's divorce. Alice's brother Norm is a hotheaded sixteen-year-old, and twelve-year-old Benjy is isolated and full of anxieties, looking with yearning at the Klubocks next door, who seem to live an orderly, peaceful life much unlike his own family's. Now, Marie has met a new man: Omar Duvall, who talks about opportunities and riches but so far seems only to sponge off the Fermoyles. A lonely, desperate single mother like Marie is easy prey for con men, but she resists the temptation to doubt him. Young Benjy, though, may eventually reveal a disturbing secret that could shatter all her hopes. A portrait of a family as well as a town and its secrets, Songs in Ordinary Time is "a gritty, beautifully crafted novel rich in wisdom and suspense" (The Miami Herald). An Oprah's Book Club selection from an author nominated for the National Book Award and the PEN/Faulkner Award, it is "extraordinary. a deeply satisfying story" (USA Today).
