January's In The Queue

Insane City by Dave Barry
In Dave Barry's hilarious new novel, a slacker loses his suitcase, a wedding ring, and groomsmen on his way to marry his fiancee, a beautiful lawyer. Throw in a stripper nobody asked for, disapproving parents, and an orangutan with love on  his mind, and it's a wedding event bound to be remembered.

Good Kids: A Novel by Benjamin Nugent
Acclaimed author Benjamin Nugent's fiction debut is a hilarious, sad, handsomely plotted story of love and class. Stylistically adventurous but always accessible, Nugent trains a keen ear on the vernaculars of Generation Y and the baby boomers, as the young and middle-aged try to decide what parenting, background, and loyalty mean in an America struggling to redefine virtue.

The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change by Al Gore
From the former vice president and #1 New York Times bestselling author comes An Inconvenient Truth for everything--a frank and clear-eyed assessment of six critical drivers of global change in the decades to come. Ours is a time of revolutionary change that has no precedent in history.  Al Gore surveys our planet's beclouded horizon and offers a sober, learned, and ultimately hopeful forecast in the visionary tradition of Alvin Toffler's Future Shock and John Naisbitt's Megatrends .
