"On the eve of her ninth birthday, unassuming Rose Edelstein, a girl at the periphery of schoolyard games and her distracted parents' attentions, bites into her mother's homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a gift: she can taste her mother's emotions in the cake. But her gift is no blessing, for her mother - her cheerful, good-with-crafts, can-do mother - tastes of despair and desperation. Suddenly, and for the rest of her life, food becomes a peril and a threat to Rose."--Page 4 of cover

On the eve of her ninth birthday, unassuming Rose Edelstein, a girl at the periphery of schoolyard games and her distracted parents' attention, bites into her mother's homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a magical gift: she can taste her mother's emotions in the cake. She discovers this gift to her horror, for her mother--her cheerful, good-with-crafts, can-do mother--tastes of despair and desperation. Suddenly, and for the rest of her life, food becomes a peril and a threat to Rose. The curse her gift has bestowed is the secret knowledge all families keep hidden--her mother's life outside the home, her father's detachment, her brother's clash with the world. Yet as Rose grows up she learns to harness her gift and becomes aware that there are secrets even her taste buds cannot discern

Turtle fur by Amy Cutler( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 181 libraries worldwide
"Polite ladies in Victorian costume dancing on tabletops with chairs worn like hats on their heads; young girls with little foals strapped to their backs; a team of women dutifully mending docile tigers with needle and thread--all of these surreal antics depicted on a bare white ground--this is the jauntily disturbing imagery of Amy Cutler (born 1974), as clear-eyed in its execution as it is enigmatic in content. Cutler's gouaches and drawings on paper have won fans and collectors worldwide, and their winning amalgam of rich imagination and skillful execution, which together update lineages as various as Persian miniature painting, Surrealism, children's fairytale books and Japanese woodblock printing, offers satisfactions rarely found in contemporary art. More recently, Cutler has ventured into sculptural installation, realizing her idiosyncratic world in three dimensions with a work titled "Alteraciones," in which dozens of female figurines--produced from molds handmade by the artist--are gathered around a tabletop and are weaving a thread that binds them to each other. This volume, published for the artist's 2011 exhibition at SITE Sante Fe, is Cutler's second monograph (her first went out of print quickly and is already a rarity), and draws from private and public collections to offer a thorough survey of her work from the late 1990s to the present."--Publisher's description

The secret society of demolition writers by Aimee Bender( file )
12 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 75 libraries worldwide
What would you write if no one knew who you were?In the spirit of the demolition derby, where drivers take heedless risks with reckless abandon, welcome to the first convocation of the Secret Society of Demolition Writers. Here is a one-of-a-kind collection by famous authors writing anonymously-and dangerously. With the usual concerns about reputations and renown cast aside, these twelve daredevils have each contributed an extreme, no-holds-barred unsigned story, each shining as brightly and urgently as hazard lights. Unconventional and unapologetic, this publishing equivalent of a whodunit features an eclectic group of fictional characters, including a delusional schizophrenic narrator, an egg donor with second thoughts about her decision, a pharmacist who forms a weird crush on a woman who beat both of her parents to death, and a little girl who understands that an old safe is the threshold to another, ghostly, world. Equally diverse and surprising are the authors themselves: Aimee Bender, Benjamin Cheever, Michael Connelly, Sebastian Junger, Elizabeth McCracken, Rosie O'Donnell, Chris Offutt, Anna Quindlen, John Burnham Schwartz, Alice Sebold, Lauren Slater, and Marc Parent, the editor of the collection. Never before has such a wide-ranging and talented group of authors been assembled to such explosive and entertaining effect. The Secret Society of Demolition Writers is an intriguing puzzle in itself, but it's also an important addition to the careers of some of our finest storytellers-even if we never really know who wrote what. Its boundary-smashing fiction offers exhilarating proof that for an artist, withholding your identity can mean gaining your freedom
