Only the world´s most beautiful models make the roster of Picture Perfect Modeling agency, and they only do shoots for the most elite photographers and magazines. They are fashionista royalty - and the owners, Bentley L. Dean and his beautiful partner Alexandra, know it. But even Picture Perfect isn´t immune from hard × so when Sterling Sneed, a rich, celebrity party planner promises to pay a ridiculously high fee for some models, Bentley finds he can´t refuse. Even though the job is not exactly a photo shoot, Bentley agrees to supply 15 gorgeous models as eye candy for an ´´A´´ list party - to look good, be charming and, well, entertain the guests. They don´t have to do anything they don´t want to, but.... His models are pros, and he figures they can handle the pressure - until one drops out and Bentley asks his protégé Jah, a beautiful kid who Bentley treats as if he were his own son, to substitute. Suddenly, the stakes are much higher, particularly when Jah falls in love with the hottest African American movie star in America.

James Sveck, 18-year-old New Yorker, charming, precocious, confused, doesn´t quite fit in (doesn´t really want to), If his future (i.e., college) seems completely meaningless, not to mention terrifying.... Then: he´ll start anew (move to the Midwest?). James Sveck is misunderstood by a capricious mother, a self-absorbed father, a mordant older sister, his Teutonic therapist, his D-list celebrity grandmother, his unnervingly attractive art gallery colleague.... If: What one wants is enigmatic.... Then: Life can be hell. But: as the summer gets hotter, James comes to recognize the wrenching truth of his emotions. James archly comic bravado fuels this sharply observed novel of a teen adrift in an adult world, struggling to make sense of the problems of love and of lack. The engaging voice of our idiosyncratic antihero is deftly captured by the adroit prose of Peter Cameron. Often hilarious, deeply compassionate, smart, and lyrical, Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You is every bit as sui generis as James Sveck himself. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lincoln Hoppe.

At the National Council of Churches, Robert Spike had organized American churches to support the passage of both the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act, to march in Selma, and to organize in Mississippi. An important white leader in the black civil rights struggle, he helped the LBJ White House pass legislation and write crucial civil rights speeches. In the midst of what he described as ´´the dirtiest fight of my life´´ while struggling to save a federal Mississippi education program, he was viciously murdered in Columbus, Ohio. The murder was never solved. Very little effort went into finding the murderer. The Columbus police and the FBI hinted the unsolved murder was connected to Spike´s undisclosed gay life. During his father´s rise in the civil rights movement, Paul Spike lived a life typical of a young man in the 1960s, finding his way through a labyrinth of booze, drugs, and girls. At Columbia University, he was active in the 1968 student rebellion and friends with many SDS radicals. That rootless life ended with his father´s murder. 1. Language: English.
