A young woman is making a living faking it as a cut-price psychic (with some illegal soft-core sex work on the side). She makes a decent wage mostly by telling people what they want to hear. But then she meets Susan Burke. Susan moved to the city one year ago with her husband and 15-year-old stepson Miles. They live in a Victorian house called Carterhook Manor. Susan has become convinced that some malevolent spirit is inhabiting their home. The young woman doesn't believe in exorcism or the supernatural. However when she enters the house for the first time, she begins to feel it too, as if the very house is watching her, waiting, biding its time . . . The Grownup, which originally appeared as 'What Do You Do?' in George R. R. Martin's Rogues short story anthology, proves once again that Gillian Flynn is one of the world's most original and skilled voices in fiction.

A Grownup's Guide to Living a Young-at-Heart Life is a whimsical and yet inspirational little book that aims to remind people of all ages of what it means to live in a free-spirited young-at-heart manner. The instruction in this lovely book is provided by children, ages four to thirteen, who sound off on how to have a youthful disposition and enjoy life all the more. Among the subjects the children address are the following: why children are the best experts on the subjects, how adults go astray and lose their way, vivid examples of young-at-heart behavior, and graphic examples of loathsome behaviors that are decidedly not young at heart. The youngsters even reveal a "Top Ten List of Young-at-Heart Behaviors," offer adults remedial steps on improving themselves and loosening up, how the genders differ on this issue, and then wax philosophical on why and how so many adults forget the lessons of childhood. The results in this collection are funny and heartwarming and will move the reader to reflect on how they themselves might benefit from adopting some of the children's attitudes. We can all learn a bit from children, and this charming book provides a classic example as the youngsters share their wisdom on what it means to be young at heart--whether one is five or one hundred and five!

A New York Times-bestselling author looks for the meaning of a good life by seeking advice from the very young and the very old. When his first book tour ended, Brad Montague missed hearing other people's stories so much that he launched what he dubbed a Listening Tour. First visiting elementary schools and later also nursing homes and retirement communities, he hoped to glean new wisdom as to how he might become a better grownup. Now, in this playful and buoyant book, he shares those insights with rest of us --timeless, often surprising lessons that bypass the head we're always stuck in, and go straight to the heart we sometimes forget. Each of the book's three sections begins with the illustrated story of "The Incredible Floating Girl." Brad weaves this story together with lessons of success, fear, regret, gratitude, love, happiness, and dreams to reveal the true reason we are here: to fly, and to help others fly. Beautifully designed and featuring Montague's own whimsical 4-color illustrations that appeal to the kid in all of us, Becoming Better Grownups shares the purpose and meaning we can all discover merely by listening, and reveals that--in a world that seems increasingly childish--the secret to joy is in fact to become more childlike.
