After his miracles go viral, one man's crisis of faith puts everything in doubt, erasing the line between memory, reality, and truth. Raised in a poor neighborhood in Albuquerque by his mother and curandera grandmother, Gabriel Romero grows up fervently religious, privately conflicted, and consumed by what he's certain is the true will of God. A radical activist determined to enlighten the consciousness of a country losing its way, Gabriel starts his own church. His slogans go viral. His protests make him either a hero or an anarchist in a polarized America, and his miracles--if we believe what we see--cast him as either a charlatan or a saint. But Gabriel knows that, above all, to ensure lasting faith he must do something truly memorable. For that, he will see his divine mission to its startling end. In this visionary novel framed as a hagiography, the ruminative, subjective memories of Gabriel's witnesses--spiritual, familial, romantic, and political--converge to make sense of the man's confounding works and message. As they do, a surprising portrait develops...not only of the deepening mystery of Gabriel Romero himself but also of a country in conflict and the faith it takes to fight the suspicion and fear that divide us.
A behind-the-scenes analysis of the controversial decisions and power struggles that went on within the Bush administration as officials planned and defended the invasion of Iraq examines Bush's determination to get rid of Saddam Hussein and the outing of a CIA officer that led to an indictment of a White House official, among other controversial topics.

'THE PERFECT WEEKEND READ' heat, 5*review Words are messy. Love is messier. A love story for book lovers that celebrates much more than romance. Meet Beatrix Babbage – 29-year-old dog-earer of books and accidental destroyer of weddings. After ruining her best friend's nuptials, Bea relocates to the other side of the country in search of a fresh start, including meeting new people, living life to the fullest and finally pulling off balayage. But after a few months, life is more stagnant than ever. Bea’s job is dead-end. Her romantic life? Non-existent. And her only friends are her books, her barista and her cleaning lady. Then Bea stumbles across a second-hand novel inscribed with notes. Besotted with the poetic inscriptions, Bea is determined to find the author ... and finds herself entangled in one hell of a love quadrangle. Funny, poignant and insightful, While You Were Reading reveals the value of true friendship, that there’s no such thing as perfection, and, most importantly, the power of not living in fiction, but still reading it – often! ~*~ Praise for The Book Ninja ~*~ 'Sure to make you smile. Brimming with bookish banter’ ‘The Book Ninja was an absolutely delightful read, full of quirky bookish themes, sweet and yet flawed characters and, of course, a liberal dose of humour that left me giggling throughout. This book warmed my heart, and left me feeling all kinds of warm and fuzzies after I finished it.’ ‘If you're looking for a funny, light-hearted, book-nerdy read, pick this up ASAP’ ‘This was a delightful read that I became completely consumed by and finished in one sitting!’ ‘This was a lot of fun to read because it's so relatable and I loved the whole book aspect of it’ ‘I loved it, better than pizza and I look forward to seeing what Ali Berg and Michelle Kalus come up with next.’ ‘The perfect book to tackle a book-reading slump’ ‘It's wonderful to finally have a book to recommend for fans of The Rosie Project’
