St. Martin's Paperbacks 2001 0312977662 / 9780312977665 Mass Market Paperback Very Good 
Ridge Hawkins doesn't tale the job of sheriff lightly--and Tanglewood, Nevada's transformation from outlaw outpost to civilized small town, is proof of his respect for the law. Ridge doesn't expect trouble from the new schoolteacher, but when she arrives with a precocious daughter in tow--and the suspicious air of a woman harboring a secret--Ridge knows he won't hesitate to deliver it.

Sophie Dolan has never taught a day of school in her life, but she's willing to do anything to keep little Jenna safely away from someone who wants to exploit the child's gift of sight. The fact that Jenna is her sister, not her daughter, is only one of the things that Sohpie needs to hide--and after one run-in with Ridge, she knows exactly whom she has to hide the truth from. The problem is, Sophie has the sight herself, and she knows that the no-nonsense sheriff has not only guessed her secrets, but stolen her heart.

New York Vintage Books 1994 0679745645 / 9780679745648 Paperback Very Good 
Truman Capoteís first novel is a story of almost supernatural intensity and inventiveness, an audacious foray into the mind of a sensitive boy as he seeks out the grown-up enigmas of love and death in the ghostly landscape of the deep South.

At the age of twelve, Joel Knox is summoned to meet the father who abandoned him at birth. But when Joel arrives at the decaying mansion in Skullyís Landing, his father is nowhere in sight. What he finds instead is a sullen stepmother who delights in killing birds; an uncle with the faceóand heartóof a debauched child; and a fearsome little girl named Idabel who may offer him the closest thing he has ever known to love.

8 Chopin, Kate The Awakening and Selected Short Fiction
New York Barnes & Noble 2003 1593080018 / 9781593080013 Paperback Very Good 
Barnes & Noble Classics Series; With an introduction and notes by Rachel Adams.

When it first appeared in 1899, Kate Chopinís The Awakening was greeted with cries of outrage. The novelís frank portrayal of a womanís emotional, intellectual, and sexual awakening shocked the sensibilities of the time and destroyed the authorís reputation and career. Many years passed before this short, pioneering work was recognized as a major achievement in American literature.

Set in and around New Orleans, The Awakening tells the story of Edna Pontellier, a young wife and mother who, determined to control her own life, flouts convention by moving out of her husbandís house, having an adulterous affair, and becoming an artist.

Beautifully written, with sensuous imagery and vivid local descriptions, The Awakening has lost none of its power to provoke and inspire. Additionally, this edition includes thirteen of Kate Chopinís magnificent short stories.

The Virgin Suicides, Eugenides, Jeffrey
12 Eugenides, Jeffrey The Virgin Suicides
New York Warner Books 1994 0446670251 / 9780446670258 Paperback Good 
Juxtaposing the most common and the most gothic, the humorous and the tragic, author Jeffrey Eugenides creates a vivid and compelling portrait of youth and lost innocence. He takes us back to the elm-lined streets of suburbia in the seventies, and introduces us to the men whose lives have been forever changed by their fierce, awkward obsession with five doomed sisters: brainy Therese, fastidious Mary, ascetic Bonnie, libertine Lux, and pale, saintly Cecilia, whose spectacular demise inaugurates "the year of the suicides." This is the debut novel that caused a sensation and won immediate acclaim from the critics-a tender, wickedly funny tale of love and terror, sex and suicide, memory and imagination.

14 Faulkner, William The Sound and the Fury
New York Modern Library 1992 0679600175 / 9780679600176 Hardcover Very Good 
The corrected text with Faulkner's appendix

The Sound and the Fury, first published in 1929, is perhaps William Faulknerís greatest book. It was immediately praised for its innovative narrative technique, and comparisons were made with Joyce and Dostoyevsky, but it did not receive popular acclaim until the late forties, shortly before Faulkner received the Nobel Prize for Literature.

The novel reveals the story of the disintegration of the Compson family, doomed inhabitants of Faulknerís mythical Yoknapatawpha County, through the interior monologues of the idiot Benjy and his brothers, Quentin and Jason. Featuring a new Foreword by Marilynne Robinson, this edition follows the text corrected in 1984 by Faulkner expert Noel Polk and corresponds as closely as possible to the authorís original intentions. Included also is the Appendix that Faulkner wrote for The Portable Faulkner in 1946, which he called the ďkey to the whole book. Ē

15 Fielding, Helen Bridget Jones's Diary
Penguin Books 2001 0141000198 / 9780141000190 Movie Tie-In Edition Paperback Good 
This laugh-out-loud chronicle charts a year in the life of Bridget Jones, a single girl on a permanent, doomed quest for self-improvement--in which she resolves to: visit the gym three times a week not merely to buy a sandwich, form a functional relationship with a responsible adult, and not fall for any of the following: misogynists, megalomaniacs, adulterers, workaholics, chauvinists or perverts. And learn to program the VCR. Caught between her Singleton friends, who are all convinced they will end up dying alone and found three weeks later half-eaten by an Alsatian, and the Smug Marrieds, whose dinner parties offer ever-new opportunities for humiliation, Bridget struggles to keep her life on an even keel (or at least afloat).

Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man, Flagg, Fannie
17 Flagg, Fannie Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man
New York Warner Books 1992 0446394521 / 9780446394529 Hardcover Good in Good dust jacket 
Here is Fannie Flagg's high-spirited and unabashedly sentimental first novel, the precursor to the bestselling Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe. Taken from the pages of Daisy Fay Harper's journal, this is a coming of age story set in rural Mississippi that is by turns hilarious and touching. It begins in 1952 when Daisy Fay is a sassy, truth-tellin' but lonely eleven-year old, and ends six years later when she becomes the flamboyant, unlikely -- but assured -- winner of the Miss Mississippi contest. Along the way, we meet some of the raffish and outrageous town locals, including her own Daddy, who comes up with a mortgage scheme that requires Daisy's "resurrection." This is a thoroughly entertaining comic novel with a heroine who is bound to capture your heart.
