A beloved sculpture is stolen by an acid-spitting rock creature in Barcelona. A smart, brave 13-year-old girl deals with her father’s ditzy girlfriends in Seattle. A doleful sandstone gome battles wolf hounds and guard geese at Cragganbogle Castle on the Western Isles of Scotland. When Finnley and Hadley’s seventh-grade class is invited to spend a vacation in Spain, these unlikely events are drawn together into an adventure filled with more danger, weird food, snooty popular girls, underground cave cities, and evil bog witches than they could have hoped for. Can they survive the Rock Pit of Torture and Justice, attacks by a cloud of midges and dive-bombing bonxies, and the embarrassment of Hadley’s mother’s naked Druid dance under the midsummer moonlight? Only if their scruffy, rude, ill-tempered companion, Wullie, can do the impossible. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David K. McCulloch.

A euphoric, provocative novel about friendship, sex, art, clubbing, and ambition set in 1980s and ´90s New York City, from the author of I Hate the Internet. When Adeline, a wealthy art student, chances upon a young man from the Midwest known only as Baby in a shady East Village squat, the two begin a fiery friendship that propels them through a decade of New York life. In the apartments and bars of downtown Manhattan to the infamous nightclub The Limelight, Adeline is Baby´s guardian angel, introducing him to a city not yet overrun by gentrification. They live through an era of New York punctuated by the deaths of Warhol, Basquiat, Wojnarowicz, and Tompkins Square Park. Adeline is fiercely protective of Baby, even bringing him home with her to Los Angeles, but he soon takes over his own education. Once just a kid off the bus from Wisconsin, Baby relishes ketamine-fueled clubbing nights and acid days in LA, and he falls deep into the Club Kid twilight zone of sexual excess. As Adeline develops into the artist she never really expected to become and flees to the nascent tech scene in San Francisco, Baby faces his own desire for artistic expression and recognition. He must write his way out of clubbing life, and their friendship, an alliance that seemed nearly impenetrable, is tested and betrayed, leaving each unmoored as the world around them seems to be unraveling. Riotously funny and wise, The Future Won´t Be Long is an ecstatic, propulsive novel coursing with a rare vitality, an elegy to New York and to the relationships that have the power to change - and save - our lives. 1.
