The Magician's Lie
The Orphan Sky
The Bridal Chair
The Amazing Arden is the most notorious female illusionist of her day, renowned for sawing a man in half. One night, with policeman Virgil Holt in the audience, she swaps her saw for a fire ax. A new trick or an all-too-real murder? When a dead body is discovered, the answer seems clear. But under Holt's interrogation, what Arden’s story reveals is both unbelievable and spellbinding. During one eerie night, Holt must decide whether to turn Arden in or set her free…and it will take all he has to see through the smoke and mirrors.
As a child growing up in 1920s Paris, Ida Chagall copes with her father Marc Chagall’s brilliant artistic mind, overbearing ego, and the tight leash he keeps on her. But as Ida blossoms into a young woman, she begins to glimpse freedom and opportunities for herself. When she falls in love for the first time, her father paints The Bridal Chair as her wedding present, a symbol of his anger that pierces Ida to the heart. Against a backdrop of the Nazi invasion of France, Ida fights for her own survival as an independent young woman while nurturing the dark creative genius of her parents.
In 1979 Azerbaijan, young piano prodigy Leila Badalbeili receives an order from her Communist mentor—to spy on a suspicious music shop. When she meets the shop’s owner, a rebellious young painter, the veneer of the Communist world she once believed in begins to crack. Just as Leila begins to fall in love, she’s discovered by her comrades and forced to make an impossible choice. Set at the crossroads of Turkish, Persian, and Russian cultures as the red banner of Communism bared down and the West beckoned, The Orphan Sky lyrically reveals one woman’s struggle to find her place in the world.
Pieces of My Mother
Whiskey and Charlie
Why would a mother ever abandon her child? And is an abandoned child destined to grow up and make the same mistake? These were some of Melissa Cistaro’s questions after her mother drove off without explanation one summer. Decades later, Melissa finds herself at her dying mother’s bedside with six days to find answers, fearful that she could do the same to her own little girl. Then she discovers a cache of letters her mother wrote but never sent and stumbles on the answers she’d been seeking. Haunting and ultimately uplifting, Pieces of My Mother is about the choices we make and their repercussions on others.
