Tuesday Nights in 1980

“An intoxicating Manhattan fairy tale…As affecting as it is absorbing. A thrilling debut.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “A vital, sensuous, edgy, and suspenseful tale of longing, rage, fear, compulsion, and love.” —Booklist (starred review) A transcendent debut novel that follows a critic, an artist, and a desirous, determined young woman as they find their way—and ultimately collide—amid the ever-evolving New York City art scene of the 1980s. Welcome to SoHo at the onset of the eighties: a gritty, not-yet-gentrified playground for artists and writers looking to make it in the big city. Among them: James Bennett, a synesthetic art critic for the New York Times whose unlikely condition enables him to describe art in profound, magical ways, and Raul Engales, an exiled Argentinian painter running from his past and the Dirty War that has enveloped his country. As the two men ascend in the downtown arts scene, dual tragedies strike, and each is faced with a loss that acutely affects his relationship to life and to art. It is not until they are inadvertently brought together by Lucy Olliason—a small town beauty and Raul’s muse—and a young orphan boy sent mysteriously from Buenos Aires, that James and Raul are able to rediscover some semblance of what they’ve lost. As inventive as Jennifer Egan's A Visit From The Goon Squad and as sweeping as Meg Wolitzer's The Interestings, Tuesday Nights in 1980 boldly renders a complex moment when the meaning and nature of art is being all but upended, and New York City as a whole is reinventing itself. In risk-taking prose that is as powerful as it is playful, Molly Prentiss deftly explores the need for beauty, community, creation, and love in an ever-changing urban landscape.

Tuesday Nights in 1980

New York, 1980: Energiegeladen, wild, im Aufbruch »Ein grandioser, tragischer, witziger Kunst- und Künstlerroman. Und eine Liebeserklärung an das New York der frühen Achtzigerjahre!" Annabelle James, Raul und Lucy wollen in New York berühmt werden. Die Kunstszene der Stadt ist im Umbruch, überall gibt es spontane Aktionen, Sprayer und Maler erobern das Stadtbild. Noch ist das Leben billig, sie müssen nur die richtigen Leute treffen. Ein paar tausend Kilometer südlich in Buenos Aires wird Rauls Schwester von der Militärjunta verfolgt. Als ihr kleiner Sohn in New York auftaucht, reißt er die drei aus ihrem Leben für die Kunst. Silvester 1979. Drei junge Künstler begegnen sich in New York auf einer Party, berauscht von Erwartungen an das neue Jahrzehnt. Sie sind Teil der schillernden Kunstszene und ein enges Trio. Sie leben zügellos, feiern die Kunst und hoffen auf den schnellen Ruhm. Raul ist ein leidenschaftlicher Maler, der vor der argentinischen Militärdiktatur nach New York geflohen ist. Er taucht ein in eine Welt der Kreativität und Freiheit. James ist der führende Kunstkritiker der Stadt. Seine Synästhesie ermöglicht es ihm, Gemälde körperlich zu verstehen. Und die Provinzschönheit Lucy ist nach New York gekommen, um all ihre Träume zu verwirklichen. Das Jahr 1980 wird für die drei zum Schicksalsjahr. Als Künstler und als Persönlichkeiten. Bis Rauls kleiner Neffe bei ihnen vor der Junta in Sicherheit gebracht wird. Plötzlich reicht es ihnen nicht mehr, sich dem Hunger nach Leben hinzugeben.

Old Flame

Old Flame is a story about the essential—and often existential—choices that define a woman’s life at every level, from which dress to wear to when to have a child to how to be in the world.

Old Flame

The author of the “ethereal and brutally realistic” (The New York Times) Tuesday Nights in 1980 returns with a highly anticipated new novel exploring what it means to be a woman in her many forms—daughter, friend, partner, lover, and mother. Emily writes for women’s catalogs for a living, but she’d rather be writing books. She has a handsome photographer boyfriend, but she actively wonders how and when they will eventually hurt each other. Her best work friend Megan is her lifeline, until Megan is abruptly laid off. When her world is further upended by an unplanned pregnancy, Emily is forced to make tough decisions that will change her life forever. What will she sacrifice from her old life to make room for a new one? What fires will she be forced to extinguish, and which will keep burning? Old Flame is a story about the essential—and often existential—choices that define a woman’s life at every level, from which dress to wear to when to have a child to how to be in the world.

Thursday s Child

THUSDAY'S CHILD is a deeply personal and often painful account of growing up gay in a small town in rural Maryland in the middle of the 20th Century, and the influence of this past on the author's later life. After two life-altering events, he realizes at fourty-four that he's confused about the nature of love and enters psychotherapy where his life story is told in actual sessions between him and his therapist. This story includes many of the issues gay men of this period were forced to face: the realization that he could never have what he calls "a normal life;" the trauma of coming out to friends, familly and business associates; the stigma of a disgraceful discharge from the US Army even after successful completion of two highly skilled and classified specialties; the anguish over the break-up of an early affair of the most abandoned type; and the resultant reluctance and struggle to ever risk intimacy again.

Nelson Vs  the United States of America

The book recounts day by day how the FBI investigators somehow centered the entire extortion plot around Nelson and another innocent man whose only mistake was to spend fifteen minutes chatting by the lake, and then to stop at a fast food restaurant for a hamburger. Nelson fit the profile that the FBI had in mind - a long pony tail, a cellular phone, and a red Corvette which he liked to drive fast. From this harmless set of facts grew an inconsistent FBI surveillance log, incredibly biased misstatements of the truth, and wholly contrived witness statements, all elaborately tailored to inplicate Nelson. Other evidence of Nelson's innocence and the unreliability of the existing evidence was simply ignored, including an FBI wiretap conversation between the real extortionist and his accomplice discussing the extortion plot in detail. The real extortionist admitted that he had no idea who the FBI had arrested. Nevertheless, Nelson was indeed arrested with his photo plastered all over the Phoenix newspapers. Nelson's life would never be the same.
