Accordéon / Kellough Kaie 04(1975)99

"Accordéon is an experimental novel, a piercing deconstruction of Québécois culture, an ode to Montréal-a city where everything happens at once and all realities exist simultaneously. Against a satirical Ministry of Culture set on quotas, preservation, and containment according to its own cultural code, Kaie Kellough weaves voices and images from the margins to probe collective fantasies of Québec old and new."--

Seasoned investigative reporter Brooks McClain has taken a position with the local newspaper and been on the job less than twenty-four hours when he's summoned to cover the death of Pauline Thorpe. Brooks is all business, but the more time he spends with Daisy DiStefano, the more invested he becomes - and when the unthinkable happens, Brooks will do whatever it takes to clear the name of the woman he's fallen for and the child he'll protect at any cost.

Keepsake / Riggle Kristina

"Trish isn't perfect. She's divorced and raising two kids -- so of course her house isn't pristine. But she's got all the important things right and she's convinced herself that she has it all under control. That is, until the day her youngest son gets hurt and Child Protective Services comes calling. It's at that moment when Trish is forced to consider the one thing she's always hoped wasn't true: that she's living out her mother's life as a compulsive hoarder. The last person Trish ever wanted to turn to for help is her sister, Mary -- meticulous, perfect Mary, whose house is always spotless ... and who moved away from their mother to live somewhere else, just like Trish's oldest child has. But now, working together to get Trish's disaster of a home into livable shape, two very different sisters are about to uncover more than just piles of junk, as years of secrets, resentments, obsessions, and pain are finally brought into the light"--P. [4] of cover.
