The File on H.
By Ismail Kadare

In the mid 1930s, two young Irish-American scholars voyage to the Albanian highlands with an early model of a marvelous invention, the tape recorder, in hand. Their mission? To discover how Homer could have composed works as brilliant and as long as the Iliadand the Odysseywithout ever writing them down. The answer, they think, can be found only in Albania, the last remaining natural habitat of the oral epic. But immediately on their arrival the scholars’ seemingly arcane research puts them at the center of ethnic strife in the Balkans. Mistaken for foreign spies, they are placed under the surveillance of a nearsighted informer with a prodigious gift for reproducing conversations he has overheard. He is soon generating a stream of floridly written reports about the visitors’ puzzling activities. News of their presence in the provincial town of N——- sets gossip to flying, and while the town’s governor speculates on their imminent capture, his pretty wife, from her bath, plots her delivery from a marital ennui worthy of Madame Bovary. Research and intrigue proceed apace, but it isn’t until a fierce-eyed monk from the Serbian side of the mountains makes his appearance that the scholars glimpse the full political import of their search for the key to the Homeric question. Part spy novel, part comedy of errors, The File on H.is a work of inventive genius and piercing irony that may be Ismail Kadare’s funniest and most accessible to date. From an author who has been called “”one of the most compelling novelists now writing in any language”” (Wall Street Journal),it is also a profound and eloquent comment on one of the most intractable conflicts of our time.

Lately, and My Dreams
by Jessica Lyons and CAV Cadet

Aundri can’t stop dreaming. Each time she closes her eyes she can barely tell the difference between her nightmares and her real life, which seem to be quickly becoming one and the same. It’s a catch 22. Her dreams are interferring with her waking life, and the issues in her waking life seem to be the main source of all the strange dreams she’s been having. Will Aundri ever be able to take control of her problems, or will the line between her real life and her dreams become permanently unrecognizable?

Me and the Nard
by Evans Light

Meet Rodney, an unemployed slacker who still lives with his mom, and his “friend” Charlie (also known as ‘The Nard’), a socially inept genius, scientist and inventor. The two make an unlikely pair, grown men with nothing in common besides a one-day-a-year-only tradition of forced friendship, one that started when they were both young kids.

Now grown men in their early twenties, Rodney can’t wait until his mom dies so he can have the house all to himself, his entire life’s goal is to one day hold the world high score record for Super Mario Brothers; and the Nard has more than a few quirks of his own, one of which is a obsessive fascination with the amusement park ride called The Scrambler.

There’s only one thing they enjoy doing together: going to the local amusement park, King’s Garden, for opening day every year; but when Rodney uncovers a secret about the Nard, he realizes that today’s trip could be their last.

Like a real-life version of ‘Beavis and Butthead’, ME AND THE NARD is a hilariously profane story in which intelligence and friendship turn out to be only a matter of perspective.
