The Familiar, Volume 1 by Mark Z. Danielewski Summary

From the author of the international best seller House of Leaves and National Book Award–nominated Only Revolutions comes a monumental new novel as dazzling as it is riveting. The Familiar (Volume 1) ranges from Mexico to Southeast Asia, from Venice, Italy, to Venice, California, with nine lives hanging in the balance, each called upon to make a terrifying choice. They include a therapist-in-training grappling with daughters as demanding as her patients; an ambitious East L.A. gang member contracted for violence; two scientists in Marfa, Texas, on the run from an organization powerful beyond imagining; plus a recovering addict in Singapore summoned at midnight by a desperate billionaire; and a programmer near Silicon Beach whose game engine might unleash consequences far exceeding the entertainment he intends. At the very heart, though, is a twelve-year-old girl named Xanther who one rainy day in May sets out with her father to get a dog, only to end up trying to save a creature as fragile as it is dangerous . . . which will change not only her life and the lives of those she has yet to encounter, but this world, too—or at least the world we think we know and the future we take for granted. (With full-color illustrations throughout.) Like the print edition, this eBook contains a complex image-based layout. It is most readable on e-reading devices with larger screen sizes.

Barish by Punitha Muniandy Summary

Everything about an Indian wedding is signi?cant—the mantras, the sacred ?re in the middle of the altar, the seven rounds around the ?re, and the colors of the bride’s sari. This day of an arranged marriage for the Sharma family is drenched in heavy rain, but far deeper problems lay within this particular Indian family, who has lived in Canada for the last thirty years. For Gangga Sharma, marrying Subash has been her dream—until her wedding day, when her dream turns into a nightmare. For Jamuna Sharma, the wedding is sacred; she vows if she gets married, it’ll be an Indian wedding. She’s not certain, though, that it will be with an Indian man. For Kaveri Sharma, the sacredness of her marriage meant nothing. For Menaka, her marriage destroyed the life she’d always dreamed of living. When she discovers Ajay’s a?air, she believes she’s failed at being a good wife. For Ajay, his daughter’s wedding opens a can of worms that could potentially destroy his life and his relationship with his daughters. The Sharma family must analyze what marriage means to each and reconcile their expectations with the old culture of India and the di?ering culture in Canada.
