Thirty-six of the most interesting writers in the Pacific Northwest came together for a week-long marathon of writing live on stage. The result? Hotel Angeline, a truly inventive novel that surprises at every turn of the page. Something is amiss at the Hotel Angeline, a rickety former mortuary perched atop Capitol Hill in rain-soaked Seattle. Fourteen-year-old Alexis Austin is fixing the plumbing, the tea, and all the problems of the world, it seems, in her landlady mother’s absence. The quirky tenants—a hilarious mix of misfits and rabble-rousers from days gone by—rely on Alexis all the more when they discover a plot to sell the Hotel. Can Alexis save their home? Find her real father? Deal with her surrogate dad’s dicey past? Find true love? Perhaps only their feisty pet crow, Habib, truly knows. Provoking interesting questions about the creative process, this novel is by turns funny, scary, witty, suspenseful, beautiful, thrilling, and unexpected.
In an isolated trailer home in the far north of Japan, an old criminal scrutinizes his tattooed skin while he waits for the past to catch up with him. A year later, the life of a young policeman breaks down as he investigates a tattooed corpse and the history of death and guilt embedded in its skin. From the Japanese underworld to midnight in the London Zoo aquarium, Skin charts the lives of people in a world made stark and fantastical. The grief of a young computer programmer who cannot erase the ghostly memories of his twins. The vicious logic of the games played by children while their parents sip drinks under parasols. And London Zoo, where the disappearance of dead animals is blamed on the 'Featherman', an eerie bodysnatcher who passes through London's wastelands and derelict spaces, leaving no trace for the feathers of green humming-birds.

Buried Secrets is a suspense novel that takes place primarily in the trendy Buckhead area of modern-day Atlanta. The story centers around twenty-nine-year-old real estate broker Anne Houston as well as the dysfunctional Carmichael family, one of the most wealthy and powerful families in the United States. The Carmichael family is headed by billionaire airline owner Hugh Carmichael, who has acquired most of his wealth through illegal means and lives a very extravagant lifestyle. In contrast to the flashy Carmichaels, Anne Houston is a single mother of a one-year-old son, a woman who is struggling to escape her troubled past and make a fresh start in Atlanta. Not long after arriving in the city, her unlikely appearance at a social gathering at a Buckhead mansion sparks a romantic relationship between herself and Hugh Carmichael, who initially leads her to believe that he is single. Her resulting connection to the billionaire family causes her to become entangled in a web of lies and scandalous deceit involving multiple murders, two bizarre kidnappings, the glare of the national news media, and a mysterious secret that has been harbored for decades. In addition to this, Anne is also being stalked by a psychopathic maniac who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. With all of these obstacles threatening to bring destruction to Anne and her young son, she becomes friends with Rick Fowler, a detective for the Atlanta Police Department, who caringly helps protect and guide her through her seemingly endless maze of problems.
Der Roman „Im Licht des Augenblicks“ von Garth Stein erzählt eine poetische, atmosphärische und tiefgründige Familiengeschichte aus dem Nordwesten der USA. Der 14-jährige Trevor besucht mit seinem Vater das heruntergekommene Familien-Anwesen in der Nähe von Seattle, in dem sein Großvater und seine Tante wohnen. Trevor stöbert durch längst verlassene Zimmer, in Geheimgänge hinter Tapetentüren, immer auf der Suche nach Antworten, vor denen die Erwachsenen zurückscheuen: Warum verletzt man immer wieder die, die man am meisten liebt? Wie kann man Schuld wiedergutmachen? Wie schwer wiegt ein Geheimnis, das man anderen vorenthalten hat? Seit Generationen scheint ein Fluch auf Trevors Familie zu lasten. Doch nun macht sich der gewitzte Trevor auf, die Wahrheit zu entdecken und auszusprechen. „Ich habe „Im Licht des Augenblicks“ verschlungen. Ein großes, wunderbares, Generationen umspannendes Epos, das im Nordwesten der USA spielt. Garth Stein hat uns erneut einen einzigartigen, gefühlvollen Erzähler für die Ewigkeit geschenkt, der uns in eine Geschichte voller Geheimnisse und Sehnsüchte mitnimmt.“ (Maria Semple, Autorin von „Wo steckst du, Bernadette?“)
