      Description
      The Deadhead publication presents a rich visual narrative of an ambitious sculptural project by the Bomfords that leads the reader through phases of early research, studio production, installation, life on the water and final deconstruction. Mounted to a barge and towed to different locations during the summer of 2014, this large-scale installation acted as a curious marine outpost asserting a presence that both troubled and delighted. In amongst paddleboats, pleasure craft, passenger ferries, cruise ships, freighters and barges stacked high with global commodities, Deadhead introduced art as valuable cargo within a constantly changing flotilla of economic exchange. As a platform from which cultural activities unfolded, Deadhead hosted a lively program of events including weekly open houses, film screenings, workshops, choir performances and a series of improvisational sunset performances. Photographs by Cedric Bomford, Nathan Bomford, Barbara Cole, Maegan Hill-Carroll, Michael Love, Philip Nee Nee, David Peters, Bob Ross, Rachel Topham, Karen Zalamea

      ANew York Times Book Review "Editors' Choice"
      AnEntertainment Weekly "Must List" Pick
      A Refinery 29 "Suspense Thriller You'll Love"
      A "Skimm Reads" Pick


      "[One] of the most anticipated summer thrillers...Gentry's novel isn't primarily about the version of the self that comes from a name and a family of origin; instead, it draws our attention to the self that's forged from sheer survival, and from the clarifying call to vengeance." —The New York Times Book Review

      "Gentry’s debut novel is more than worthy of the analogy [to Gillian Flynn’s 2012 smash,Gone Girl]…it’s so gripping you might start to question your own family’s past." —Entertainment Weekly

      "So much about this novel is fresh and insightful and decidedly not like every other thriller…Good as Gone ranks as an outstanding debut, well worth reading. This is no mere Gone Girl wannabe.”The Dallas Morning News

      “A mother, a daughter, a zealot, an investigator, a family, a stripper, and more than a few survivors lay the riveting groundwork, but it's Amy Gentry's realistic portrayals of victims and their families that setGood as Goneapart from other page-turning crime dramas...The end result is a true ‘novel of suspense’: a book that's hard to put down not only because of our investment in the plot, but also because of our investment in the lives of the complicated characters.”—The Austin Chronicle

      "Compelling and emotionally nuanced." —The Seattle Times

      "This smart, crisply written thriller begins with a ‘ripped from the headlines’ premise, but broadens to explore themes ranging from the mothering of daughters to the inwardness of suburban life and the lure of the megachurch in an era of consumerism.”The Minneapolis Star Tribune

      “Both a mother-daughter and a family-under-fire story,Good as Gone is laden with confused identities and a thrumming plot. Amy Gentry's debut also holds a mirror up to the myriad ways rape culture is perpetuated.”—Bustle

      Good as Gone…confirms the entrance of a powerful new voice in the world of crime fiction—Gentry knows crime fiction as a critic and as a writer, and brings her experiences with her for a novel that is as playful and self-aware in its structure as it is responsible in its themes.”—MysteryPeople

      "If you love a measured and thought-provoking novel of suspense, with one eye on character study and one eye on a city’s conflicted culture, this might just be the next book for you.” —Crime by the Book

      "Debut novelist Gentry delivers on genre expectations with crisp, unobtrusive writing and well-executed plot twists." —Kirkus Reviews

      "Clever perspective changes give Gentry's debut building suspense...Fans of Paula Hawkin'sThe Girl on the Train will enjoy the shifting points of view and the complex female characters, and those who liked Samantha Hunt'sMr. Splitfoot will appreciate the seedy characters and haunting theme of childhood vulnerability...Gentry's depiction of a family working through immense suffering will connect with many readers." —Booklist

      "Gentry’s treatment is effective, with a swift-moving narrative and an interesting backstory for Julie and engrossing insight into Anna’s ambivalence and grief...A good pick for fans of mysteries, thrillers, and family drama." —Library Journal

      “Amy Gentry has burst out of the gate with a monumentally intelligent, wily thriller about identity, vengeance, and homecoming that introduces readers to some of the most badass female characters on the shelf. Good as Gone is a river that shoots the reader deftly through rapids, over cliffs, past eerie vistas to a shocking, elegant and well-earned ending. Do yourself a favor: jump in.“—Kelly Luce, author ofPull Me Under

      “A bracing, scarily honest look at what it means to be female—and to be a daughter, sister, wife, mother—wrapped up in a vicious thriller. Gentry's ambitious debut will satisfy fans ofGone Girl,The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, andThe Killing.”—Merritt Tierce, author of Love Me Back

      “Unreliability sets the tone for this page-turner as it begins with a kidnapping where the only witness is the victim's a ten-year-old sister. Pitting innocence and earnestness against criminality and manipulation, this novel, with its deft twists and turns, will leave you haunted long after the final page...You need to read this book. Like a literary James Patterson, this is a not-to-miss debut.”—Steph Opitz, book reviewer,Marie Claire

      Description

      "That's it, I'm moving to Canada." It's been threatened before, but maybe this time it's for real.

      If you or someone you know is discontented, distressed, or downright disturbed, maybe the Great White North is right for you, eh. But how much do you really know about Canada?

      • Can you do a job that Canada needs (do you play hockey, drill for oil, or make poutine?)?
      • Can you identify the bestCanadian province for your lifestyle (lots of tundra or just some tundra?)?
      • Can you master the proper pronunciation of "sorry"?
      • What strange wizardry is the Canadian government?
      • Is maple syrup acceptable substitution for currency?

      At long last, How to Move to Canada can help make your vague threat into a cold Canadian reality. This book is also full of activities such as:

      • Color the flag of your new homeland
      • Match the strange Canuck dialect with their local definitions
      • And more!

      PLEASE NOTE: This is a humor book. It won't really help you emigrate. Rather, it's a subversive mix of real information on the Great White North plus a hilarious look at all the reasons why you won't like it there any better — and why they probably won't have you anyway.
