 1.  I-5: A Novel of Crime, Transport, and Sex

Brenner, Summer PM Press 2009 9.78E+12 Trade paperback

New 

A novel of crime, transport, and sex, I-5 tells the bleak and brutal story of Anya and her journey north from Los Angeles to Oakland on the interstate that bisects the Central Valley of California. Anya is the victim of a deep deception. Someone has lied to her; and because of this lie, she is kept under lock and key, used by her employer to service men, and indebted for the privilege. In exchange, she lives in the United States and fantasizes on a future American freedom. Or as she remarks to a friend, Would she rather be fucking a dog...or living like a dog? In Anya s world, it s a reasonable question. Much of I-5 transpires on the eponymous interstate. Anya travels with her manager and driver from Los Angeles to Oakland. It s a macabre journey: a drop at Denny s, a bad patch of fog, a visit to a correctional facility, a rendezvous with an organ grinder, and a dramatic entry across Oakland s city limits.

 3.  Nearly Nowhere

Brenner, Summer 1604863064 / 9781604863062 Trade Paperback

Brand new! 

“You should be reading Summer Brenner.” – More Intelligent Life, The Economist. Originally published by Gallimard’s la Serie noire as Presque nulle part. Overview: Fifteen years ago, Kate Ryan and her daughter Ruby moved to the secluded village of Zamora in northern New Mexico to find a quiet life off the grid. But when Kate invites the wrong drifter home for the night, the delicate peace of their domain is shattered. Troy Mason manages to hang onto Kate for a few weeks, though his charm increasingly fails to offset his lies and delusions of grandeur. It is only a matter of time before the lies turn abusive, igniting a chain reaction of violence and murder. Not even a bullet in the leg will keep Troy from seeking revenge as he chases the missing Ruby over back roads through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, down the River of No Return, and to a white supremacy enclave in Idaho’s Bitterroot Wilderness. Nearly Nowhere explores the darkest places of the American West, emerging with only a fragile hope of redemption in the maternal ties that bind.
