Midnight in Aisle Seven:Sometimes God introduces Himself outside of church Jay Lowder
The Flash of Midnight is a faithfully accurate portrait of the late 1960s, when free love often meant hopping into bed with someone before the first date, sometimes without regard to the gender of your partner, and an unwed mother was not an overnight celebrity. In June of 1968, leap-year baby Laurie Norber graduates from college and decides to spend the summer in London. At 20, she is so petite and flat-chested she could easily pass for a 13-year-old, and she willfully allows men to believe that she is still ´´jailbait´´. Unfortunately, her promiscuous, hippy lifestyle leaves her pregnant and uncertain of the father´s identity. Is it a Czech musician with a penchant for illegal drugs, a married rock superstar, or one of the many brief encounters whose names she can´t even recall? Upon her return to New York, Laurie sets out with her childhood friend, Kim, on a cross-country drive to Los Angeles. But Laurie and Kim are keeping important secrets from each other, and when the truth is revealed, Laurie finds herself continuing the journey alone. Laurie takes up residence in a Malibu beach house with a middle-aged musician named Bex who thinks Laurie is 16. Over the next few months, Laurie will have memorable encounters with an aspiring young actor, a well-known film and television character actress, a photographer with a taste for bondage, a beloved sitcom starlet, a male nurse, several transvestites, and a police sergeant with a passion for popular songs. By the time her baby is born, Laurie has learned a lot about life but her education is far from over. On a hot June night in 1969, Laurie inadvertently ignites a spark that that will change America forever! ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Armin.

Tristan Green left his small English town for Manhattan and a job at a high-profile ad agency, but can´t seem to find his bearings. He spends a lot of time working late at night, eating and sleeping alone, and even more time meandering around his neighborhood staring into the darkened windows of shops. One night when he´s feeling really low, he wanders by a beautiful little bakery with the lights still on. The baker invites him in, and sometime during that night Tristan realizes it´s the first time he´s really smiled in months. Henry Livingston has always been the odd duck, the black sheep, the baker in an old money family where pedigree is everything and quirky personalities are hidden behind dry martinis and thick Upper East Side townhouse facades. Henry is drawn to Tristan´s easy country charm, dry English wit, and everything that is so different from Henry´s world. Their new romance is all buttercream frosting and sugared violets until Tristan´s need to fit in at work makes him do something he desperately wishes he could undo. Tristan has to prove to Henry that he can be trusted again before they can indulge in the sweet stuff they´re both craving. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: John-Paul Barrel.

It´s a few days before Christmas, and sometime sleuth/full-time cleaning lady Callahan Garrity has things under control for a change, until her never-do-well brother, Brian, shows up. He´s kidnapped his toddler daughter, Maura, from his estranged wife, a vengeful shrew with the law on her side. When his ex-wife is found dead, the cops suspect Brian. To save her brother and her holiday, Callahan, along with her irascible mom, Edna, and a gaggle of House Mouse employees, will crisscross yuletide Atlanta, going everywhere the search for truth leads. ungekürzt.

It´s 3:00 a.m. in the side yard of a shack in the worst part of town. I´ve got a dirty-faced baby on my hip, and there´s a pit bull standing on the septic tank in the next yard over, barking his head off. My patient sits on the hood of her ex-husband´s lowrider, smoking a cigarette and dumping her pills into a mud hole by the right front tire. Airbrushed across the hood of the car is a cross-eyed Jesus with open arms. She lays her hand on top of his as the still-hot engine ticks. Through tears she pleads, ´´Help me, Jesus, please.´´ The dog is silent. Sirens approach. ´´Just breathe,´´ I tell her. ´´Everything´s gonna be all right.´´ The baby fidgets, resting her head against me, staring up into my eyes. I raise one finger, and she holds it tight. I fumble for the words again. ´´Just breathe.´´ Midnight Jesus shares fascinating, bizarre, and sometimes hilarious true-life stories of everyday people looking for hope in their darkest hours. Poignant and unpretentious, Jamie paints beauty where at times it seems none exists - from skating rinks and bars to late-night highways and lonely apartments, broken churches and run-down trailer parks, jail cells, bridge rails, ERs, psych wards, and that place over the levee where God laughs and walks through the cool, dark night.

In Los Angeles making a documentary about upscale daycares, Maggie MacGowen visits MacArthur Park to get complementary footage of the pubescent prostitutes that populate its dark corners. There she meets Pisces, a fourteen year-old hooker with manners that don´t match her profession. As they bond over a plate of pastrami, Maggie talks her into spending the night in a shelter. But Pisces comes with baggage: A nine year-old hoodlum named Sly. Maggie takes them both to a convent, where they are fed, bathed and tucked into bed, just like normal children. The next morning, Pisces is dead, her throat slashed by an unknown hand. Maggie teams with LAPD detective and sometime-lover Mike Flint to find the killer. The keys to the case are the young girl´s manners, and the fact that she died with her virginity intact. Not to mention the other bodies that just keep turning up. . . ungekürzt. Language: English.
