In the spring of 1994, Daniel Spiegelman shinnied up an abandoned book lift in Columbia University's Butler Library to get to the rare books floor where he then proceeded to dismantle a wall, steal books, reassemble the wall, and sneak back down the shaft. Over a three-month period he did this more than a dozen times. He eventually escaped with the loot - roughly $1.8 million in books, letters and manuscripts - to Europe to sell to collectors. When he was caught in the Netherlands, he tried to avoid extradition to the U.S. by telling the Dutch authorities that he was a financier of the Oklahoma City bombing knowing they wouldn't extradite someone who was facing the death penalty. Eventually the FBI, through some wrangling, got him back to New York, where he finally stood trial for his crimes. In vivid detail, including a retelling of the crimes, dialogue from the court transcripts, and explanations of the legal consequences and intricacies, McDade recounts all the sordid elements of this true crime caper.

By the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Book Thief, this is a cryptic journey filled with laughter, fists, and love. Ed Kennedy is an underage cabdriver without much of a future. He's pathetic at playing cards, hopelessly in love with his best friend, Audrey, and utterly devoted to his coffee-drinking dog, the Doorman. His life is one of peaceful routine and incompetence until he inadvertently stops a bank robbery. That's when the first ace arrives in the mail. That's when Ed becomes the messenger. Chosen to care, he makes his way through town helping and hurting (when necessary) until only one question remains: Who's behind Ed's mission? This book is a 2005 Michael L. Printz Honor Book and recipient of five starred reviews. From the Trade Paperback edition.

In Markus Zusaks 2006 novel The Book Thief, an embodied but inhuman Death tells the story of Liesel Meminger, a book thief who acquires language, forges her own morality, navigates adolescence and befriends Max Vandenburg, the struggling Jewish fist-fighter hiding in her basement (Zusak 302; 195). This thesis, entitled Death & All His Friends: Narration in Markus Zusaks The Book Thief, analyzes the novel through the lenses of Holocaust, trauma and narrative theory. The first chapter, Death & All His Friends, characterizes Deaths unusual narrative style as well as his intimate relationship with the reader and relies on Cathy Caruth and Dori Laubs work with Holocaust survivors to frame Deaths roles as both a wounded survivor of human cruelty and a witness able to make sense of human suffering. Words Are Life, the second chapter, considers Liesels literacy using Mikhail Bakhtins model for the acquisition of language and compares and contrasts the book thief to other young, moral narrators including Huckleberry Finn and Holden Caulfield in order to argue that individually inflected language serves as a powerful intermediary between the individual and society. The final chapter, The Jewish Fist-Fighter, examines Max Vandenburgs imaginative understanding of grief and loss as presented through two stories he writes for Liesel and contends that these stories, along with an incident Death refers to as The Swapping of Nightmares (Zusak 228), constitute trauma scholar Kim van Kaams concept of representation and help the Jewish man and marginalized girl to create their own identities. Collectively, this thesis, through the study of language and trauma, describes and explores the levels of narration provided by Death, Liesel and Max.

Two powerful modern classics from #1 New York Times bestselling author Markus Zusak. The Book Thief affirms the ability of books to feed the soul even in the bleakest of times in a story the New York Times described as “brilliant. . . . the kind of book that can be life-changing.” I Am the Messenger is a cryptic journey filled with laughter, fists, and love, which School Library Journal called “unpretentious, well conceived, and appropriately raw” in a starred review. Markus Zusak is the recipient of the Margaret A. Edwards Award for his significant and lasting contribution to writing for teens, and together, these two stories form an extraordinary collection to showcase the intensity and heart inherent in his storytelling.
