That Crazy Perfect Someday by Michael Mazza

The year is 2024. Climate change has altered the world’s wave patterns. Drones crisscross the sky, cars drive themselves, and surfing is a new Olympic sport. Mafuri Long, a gutsy female surf pro, pushes against wild odds for what she wants, with deep surprises about who she is.. Authentic, brutal, and at times funny, Mafuri lays it all out in a sprightly, hot-wired voice. From San Diego to Sydney, Key West, and Manila, That Crazy Perfect Someday goes beyond the sports/surf cliché to explore the depths of sorrow and hope, yearning and family bonds, and the bootstrap power of a bold young woman climbing back into the light.

Touch Wood by Joe Ashby Porter

The Lady of Deerpark by Seumas O’Kelly

Set in the west of Ireland of the 1890’s, The Lady of Deerpark is a “big house” novel—an ironic elegy for an Ireland in decay. It is distinguished by craft as well as humor, by a stylistic strength and suppleness that can mix realist and symbolist modes, cut tragedy with farce, comedy with satire, and brush all up with a touch of Turgenev and the Gothic. It is as full of texture, color, and animation as a Jack Yeats painting.
