Philosophical Dramedy

Hume’s Fork Ron Cooper

Hume’s Fork is not only a very impressive debut, but one of the funniest novels I’ve read in a long time. Like John Kennedy Toole and Kingsley Amis, author Ron Cooper displays a gifted attentiveness to the foibles of the academic world.”

  • Ron Rash, PEn/FaulknER Finalist

FoR thE cRitically acclaimEd Serena

“It doesn’t seem possible for a first-time novelist to write a book that is tender, funny, intelligent, and satirical, but Ron Cooper has done exactly that. Hume’s Fork is unlike any book I’ve ever read: satisfying as a philosophy text, compelling as a drama, and redemptive in its trashing of academic stuffed shirts. He writes about the South as only a native son can, with the right combination of pathos and punch. This book heralds the arrival of a much-needed breath of fresh air in American letters.” —lEE iRBy, authoR oF 7,000 ClamS and The up and up

“May Hume’s Fork find its many readers! It made me laugh out loud.

Fun Book About Common Teen Problems

The Mia Fullerton Series Eileen Boggess

“You’ll cheer when she finally finds her inner confidence, and you’ll know that the high- school world is hers to conquer.” —cindy BloBaum, authoR oF geology roCkS! and inSeCTigaTionS

“Boggess’s characters, especially spunky Mia, are quirky and well-drawn, and the lively plot sweeps them from one misad- venture to another. By the book’s conclu- sion, Mia has almost reinvented herself, leaving Boggess’s readers anxious for Mia’s next adven- ture. Fast-paced fun.” —Jan Blazanin, sixth GRadE REadinG/lanGuaGE

aRts tEachER

“I’m so grateful to have another book in my arsenal that I can enthusiastical- ly recommend to precocious elementary readers who want to read about high school life, and to teenage readers who don’t want edgier Young Adult stuff. Boggess manages to express the anxiety and self-doubt teens feel without the darkness so prevalent now in that genre. The situations are comical, the dialogue is witty, and the ending will evoke a satisfied sigh.” —maRy annE GRiEvE, youth sERvicEs assistant, uRBandalE PuBlic liBRaRy
