In the small town of Framlingham, England in 1426, Edmond Zandor is awoken by the frantic cries of his child, only to discover his wife killed in cold blood only mere feet from where he slept, and eight of his nine children had mysteriously vanished. With nothing but his five-year-old son's story to go off of, Edmond endeavors to catch the killer, find his children, and appease the violent lust for revenge brewing within him. As Edmond tracks the assailant, he finds himself trapped inside the cryptic Framlingham castle with eleven others while a blizzard rages outside. Terror descends upon the group when they realize the nature of their situation, and when they discover that the same killer is among them. Driven to the ends of the Earth to stay alive, Edmond must protect the lives of the innocents being killed off, while he desperately searches for his wife's killer. But their numbers are dwindling, and the killer won't hide forever. Can Edmond save the group and avenge his wife? ...Or will he die trying?

They love nothing better than sipping free-trade gourmet coffee, leafing through the Sunday New York Times, and listening to David Sedaris on NPR (ideally all at the same time). Apple products, indie music, food co-ops, and vintage T-shirts make them weak in the knees. They believe they’re unique, yet somehow they’re all exactly the same, talking about how they “get” Sarah Silverman’s “subversive” comedy and Wes Anderson’s “droll” films. They’re also down with diversity and up on all the best microbrews, breakfast spots, foreign cinema, and authentic sushi. They’re organic, ironic, and do not own TVs. You know who they are: They’re white people. And they’re here, and you’re gonna have to deal. Fortunately, here’s a book that investigates, explains, and offers advice for finding social success with the Caucasian persuasion. So kick back on your IKEA couch and lose yourself in the ultimate guide to the unbearable whiteness of being. Praise for STUFF WHITE PEOPLE LIKE: “The best of a hilarious Web site: an uncannily accurate catalog of dead-on predilections. The Criterion Collection of classic films? Haircuts with bangs? Expensive fruit juice? ‘Blonde on Blonde’ on the iPod? The author knows who reads The New Yorker and who wears plaid.” –Janet Maslin’s summer picks, CBS.com “The author of "Stuff White People Like" skewers the sacred cows of lefty Caucasian culture, from the Prius to David Sedaris. . . . It gently mocks the habits and pretensions of urbane, educated, left-leaning whites, skewering their passion for Barack Obama and public transportation (as long as it's not a bus), their idle threats to move to Canada, and joy in playing children's games as adults. Kickball, anyone?” –Salon.com “A handy reference guide with which you can check just how white you are. Hint: If you like only documentaries and think your child is gifted, you glow in the dark, buddy.” –NY Daily News From the Trade Paperback edition.

Little Shirley Hershey grew up in a plain Mennonite home, yet was named for a movie star. With her nose pressed to the window of the glittering world, she felt intensely the gap that existed in the 1950s and '60s between Mennonites and the larger world. This is the story of how a rosy-cheeked, barefoot Mennonite farm girl prepared to enter the glittering world and learned how to do so on her own terms. This engaging childhood memoir tells the story of a Mennonite girl who might have left the church but found another way. Book jacket.
