Lithium for Medea is as much a tale of addiction—to sex, drugs, and dysfunctional family chains—as it is one of mothers and daughters, their mutual rebellion and unconscious mimicry. Here is the story according to Rose—the daughter of a narcissistic, emotionally crippled mother and a father who shadowboxes with death in hospital corridors—as she slips deeply and dangerously into the lair of a cocaine-fed artist in the bohemian squalor of Venice. Lithium for Medea sears us with Rose’s breathless, fierce, visceral flight—like a drug that leaves one’s perceptions forever altered.

Introduction by Rick Moody A tale of addiction: to drugs, physical love and dysfunctional family chains. A tale of mothers and daughters, their mutual rebellion and unconscious mimicry. In poetic, sensuous and seemingly simple language, Rose recounts the tortures of growing up with an emotionally crippled, materialistic mother and a father who is slowly killed by gambling and cancer, as she slowly slips into the manipulative arms of a parasitic, cocaine-fed artist and slumlord. This is the long-awaited reprint of Rose's breathless, fierce and visceral flight.

Braverman's second novel and arguably her finest, Palm Latitudes explores the intertwined lives of three women who await absolution and revelation in Los Angeles. Frances Ramos is a voluptuous prostitute, held in high esteem by local street gangs. Gloria Hernandez is a dutiful young wife and mother - until her husband's act of betrayal sparks her growing fury. Marta Ortega, a prophetic old woman connected viscerally with the forces of nature, quietly charts the mingling of past and present and the cross-pollenisation of her turbulent neighbourhood, and of human destiny.

"I was born in rain and I will die in rain," begins Kate Braverman’s The Incantation of Frida K., an imagined life journey of Frida Kahlo. The book opens and closes inside the mind of Frida K., at 46, on her deathbed, taking us through a kaleidoscope of memories and hallucinations where we shiver for two hundred pages on the threshold of life and death, dream and reality, truth and myth. Defiant and uncompromising, Frida bears the wounds of her body and spirit with a stark pride, transcending all limitations, wrapping her senses around the places, events, and conversations in her past. Frida K. interacts from her hospital bed with her mother, sister, Diego, and her nurse. She calls herself a "water woman," navigating into unexplored dimensions of her world, leading us through the alleys of San Francisco’s Chinatown, of Paris in 1939 (where she rubbed shoulders with André Breton), and of her neighborhood in Mexico City, Coyoacan. Her voyage is an inward one, an incantation before dying. In The Incantation of Frida K., Braverman’s language dances and spins. She carves out a bold interpretation of the life of an artist to whom she is vitally connected.

In 1972, in the suburbs around L.A., traditional housewives in their 30s and 40s are starting to ask whether they are satisfied by their everyday lives; meanwhile, a young woman in her early 20s feels paralyzed by her options. The story centers around five middle-class L.A. couples of three different generations and the ways in which their relationships and home lives are affected by the trends (specifically the rise in divorce and feminism) of the time. Maritta Wolff's moving, compelling novel takes place in one stormy L.A. weekend, as a literal fog of unrest blows into town, and alters these marriages forever.
