Michelle and her little siblings, Cass and Denny, are African American and living on the poverty line in urban Baltimore, struggling to keep it together with their mom in jail and only Michelle´s part-time job at the Taco Bell to sustain them. Leah and her stepbrother, Tim, are white and middle class from suburban Maryland, with few worries beyond winning lacrosse games and getting college applications in on time. Michelle and Leah have only one thing in common: Buck Devereaux, the biological father who abandoned them when they were little. After news trickles back to them that Buck is dying, they make the uneasy decision to drive across country to his hospice in California. Leah hopes for closure; Michelle just wants to give him a piece of her mind. Five people in a failing, old station wagon, living off free samples at food courts across America, and the most pressing question on Michelle´s mind is: Who will break down first - herself or the car? All the signs tell her they won´t make it. But Michelle has heard that her whole life, and it´s never stopped her before.... Una LaMarche triumphs once again with this rare and compassionate look at how racial and social privilege affects one family in crisis in both subtle and astonishing ways. 1. Language: English.

Balla is often described as ´´the Slovak Kafka´´ for his depictions of the absurd and the mundane. In the Name of the Father features a nameless narrator reflecting on his life, looking for someone else to blame for his failed relationship with his parents and two sons, his serial adultery, the breakup of his marriage, and his wife´s descent into madness. Against the backdrop of their stiflingly gray provincial lives, he completely fails to act against ´´the thing´´ growing in the cellar of the house he built with his brother. The novella won numerous awards in Slovakia and in this edition is accompanied by three additional short stories, which share its unique dark humor, satire, and truth. 1. Language: English.
