Three young people strike out in an old car on a soul-searching road trip out into the deep desert. Lifelong inseparable friends, each has their own reasons to venture out into the lonely and desolate wastelands. Ella is a neurotic genius who has been forced to live a life she never wanted. She has no other place to go. Vaughn goes in an unlikely attempt to find a beloved uncle who had disappeared in the desert decades before. Mike accompanies them in the hopes of shaking off a terrible curse given to him by his own father. Their deep friendship and love for each other is the only thing they have left to go on. They band together for one last time and travel iinto a desert landscape which waits to reveal to them more wonders and secrets than any of them could have ever imagined. Low on gas, they travel along on a long-unused road. After passing through an abandoned town, their car becomes disabled after a freak encounter with a large Acme rocket. Out of gas in a broken car and with no chance of help, they truely are on their own. Forced to go ahead on foot for help, the forge together into the desert at night, loosely guided only by a cryptic map that Vaughn's uncle had given to him when he was only a child. The group soon discovers that their problems have only begun. They walk far into an unknown and forbidden land which defies logic and all sense of reality. After they sneak their way onto a beyond top secret airbase commanded by a kind but tortured legendary officer, they witness a violent and yet entertaining event involving real-life versions of one unlucky coyote and a speedy roadrunner... carefully hidden and protected characters that the trio (and everyone else) had previously thought only existed in cartoon-land a half-century before... only this is no cartoon. It is a stark reality. Detained as honored guests on the crumbling base, our young band of heroes make a few friends along the way and discover that besides Willie Coyote and The Roadrunner, a brilliant human-like race and a highly-secretive ancient tribe of warriors also exist out in the far regions of the vast expanses of the doomed base... all of whom would be destroyed if discovered by the outside world. Unfortunately, the word is already out about this collapsing house of cards and a disaster is in the making. A cruel man who is wrongfully bent on revenge unleashes his evill forces upon innocent peoples who are not prepared for such a terrible and costly war of death and destruction. At the most crucial point in an epic battle between the forces of good and evil, Willie accomplishes his lifetime goal and then questions it. And he realizes something else along the way... maybe it was never really just hunger that drove him to relentlessly pursue the Roadrunner. The time comes for Willie to make things right for his people, his friends and an innocent bird. He unleashes the most diabolical invention he has ever constructed upon the merciless invaders. He is then leftt with only one last goal and mission... to save the one and only true friend that he never knew he even ever had. A desparate challenge for all just to survive spirals quickly completely out of control and becomes a seemingly-hopeless quest for Willie, our three heroes and their friends. All must fight, hide or run from an unescapable trap. Whether anybody makes it out alive is for you, dear reader, to discover for yourself. The Last Friends of Willie Coyote is a tale of tears, determination and hope. It is a story about the test of true friendships and rising above adversity in an extremely trying time. I hope you enjoy it.

"Sharp, funny, thought-provoking . . . a really great portrait of two young women as they're figuring out how to be adults." - Celeste Ng, "Late Night with Seth Meyers Podcast" Winner of the 2017 Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year Frances is a cool-headed and darkly observant young woman, vaguely pursuing a career in writing while studying in Dublin. Her best friend and comrade-in-arms is the beautiful and endlessly self-possessed Bobbi. At a local poetry performance one night, Frances and Bobbi catch the eye of Melissa, a well-known photographer, and as the girls are then gradually drawn into Melissa's world, Frances is reluctantly impressed by the older woman's sophisticated home and tall, handsome husband, Nick. However amusing and ironic Frances and Nick's flirtation seems at first, it gives way to a strange intimacy, and Frances's friendship with Bobbi begins to fracture. As Frances tries to keep her life in check, her relationships increasingly resist her control: with Nick, with her difficult and unhappy father, and finally, terribly, with Bobbi. Desperate to reconcile her inner life to the desires and vulnerabilities of her body, Frances's intellectual certainties begin to yield to something new: a painful and disorienting way of living from moment to moment. Written with gem-like precision and marked by a sly sense of humor, Conversations with Friends is wonderfully alive to the pleasures and dangers of youth, and the messy edges of female friendship.

Death is a great and grand mystery, and the actual act of dying is the last physical act of our lives. We can do it well, like a graceful well-rehearsed piano solo—or we can do it like that first awkward dance with a middle-school crush. But if anything deserves our full attention, some preparation, or some renewed clarity, death might be it. In this light-hearted, irreverent exploration of the one thing that is certain in all lives, Making Friends with Death offers a look at all the uncertainty that precedes this final act. A compelling mix of practical how-to advice and personal narrative, this book encapsulates our greatest quest—to make peace with death. Pritchett offers up wisdom she has gleaned from all sorts of places, including a decade of traditional research and a lifetime of other related, but less formal, pursuits (digging up a dead body, watching her dog be necropsied on the lawn, hosting Death Cafés, and confronting the grim reaper himself). Making Friends with Death broaches the sacred and the scary with warmth, research, and humor. Interspersed with a variety of workbook-like exercises, this book will prove to be the go-to companion for anyone who would rather be able to greet death as an old friend, rather than a spooky stranger.
