Sex, Drugs and Gefilte Fish edited by Shana Liebman was a contest win from Kari at Five Borough Book Review.
How can you pass up such a title? And such an irreverent cover? I mean really: condoms, a hypodermic needle, pills, marajuana, handcuffs, and powder with a razor blade all artfully placed in a Passover plate. Best yet? This comes from The Heeb Storytelling Collection. I anticipate some really interesting stories out of this one.
Rebell Yell by Alice Randall was sent to me when I became a Facebook fan of BookPage. Cool, hey? The story of a first wife looking back at her late ex-husband's life in hopes of understanding him and who he became, especially for their son's sake, this promises to uncover lots about identity, family, and how each of us changes throughout our lives.
As always, if you'd like to see the marvelous goodies in other people's mailboxes, make sure to visit Marcia at The Printed Page and enjoy seeing how we are all doing our part to keep the USPS and delivery services viable.
