Like-New Hardcover Fiction Titles! Great Reads or Gifts!



Ahab's Wife: Or, the Star-Gazer: A Novel
by Naslund, Sena Jeter
First Edition!

http://www.alibris.com/booksearch.detail?invid=93101368...

This meticulously researched historical novel, based on an obscure reference in MOBY-DICK to Ahab's wife, is the story of Una Spenser, who runs away to sea disguised as a boy, survives the wreck of a whale ship, and marries a handsome older man named Ahab before he becomes destroyed by his obsession with the white whale.



Lullaby
by Palahniuk, Chuck
First Edition!

http://www.alibris.com/booksearch.detail?invid=93101354...

In this black comedy, a reporter investigating a sudden spike in the number of infant deaths discovers a link between each of the victims--apparently all had been read a particular poem from a mysterious book found at the scene of each death. His subsequent investigation leads him into contact with everyone from librarians to witches to eco-terrorists.



The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
by Haddon, Mark
First Edition!

http://www.alibris.com/booksearch.detail?invid=93101352...

Narrated by a 15-year-old autistic savant obsessed with Sherlock Holmes, this dazzling novel weaves together an old-fashioned mystery, a contemporary coming-of-age story, and a fascinating excursion into a mind incapable of processing emotions.



Body Surfing (2007)
by Shreve, Anita

http://www.alibris.com/booksearch.detail?invid=93101360...

A spellbinding novel about a young widow torn between two brothers she meets one New England summer, "Body Surfing" is from the bestselling author of "A Wedding in December" and "The Pilot's Wife," an Oprah Book Club selection.



Interview with the Vampire (1976)
by Rice, Anne
Very early printing.

http://www.alibris.com/booksearch.detail?invid=93101359...

A vampire named Louis tells his life story to a young reporter. While initial reviews of this book were unfavorable, it has nevertheless become something of a contemporary classic in neo-Gothic literature.



Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates
by Robbins, Tom

http://www.alibris.com/booksearch.detail?invid=93101369...

In this humorously picaresque novel, a Zen Buddhist CIA agent meets an Amazonian shaman who takes him on a great drug trip, but insists on a high price for the experience: he places a curse on the agent that requires him to stay eternally in transit, never touching ground. He returns home in a wheelchair and, in a wild plot twist, finds himself in a convent in the Syrian desert where he falls in love with a nun.



The Poisonwood Bible
by Kingsolver, Barbara
First Edition!

http://www.alibris.com/booksearch.detail?invid=93101368...

In her first novel since "Pigs in Heaven", Kingsolver offers a compelling exploration of religion, conscience, imperialist arrogance, and the many paths to redemption. An American missionary and his family travel to the Congo in 1959, a time of tremendous political and social upheaval.



The Angel of Darkness
by Carr, Caleb
First Edition!

http://www.alibris.com/booksearch.detail?invid=93101366...

In this follow-up novel to Carr's blockbuster bestseller, "The Alienist", the narrator is not the memorable journalist James Moore, but the young miscreant introduced in the first volume as "Stevie." Alienist Laszlo Kreizler investigates another serial murder case in 19th-century New York City, this one involving the kidnapping of infants.
