The Limits of Enchantment
by Graham Joyce
“Everything Fern Cullen knows she's learned from Mammy -- and none of it's conventional. Taught midwifery at an early age, Fern becomes Mammy's trusted assistant in a quaint rural village and learns through experience that secrets are precious, passion is dangerous, and people should mind their own business. But when one of Mammy's patients allegedly dies from an induced abortion, the town rallies against her. As Fern struggles to save Mammy's good name, she finds communion with a bunch of hippies living at a nearby estate...where she uncovers a legacy spotted with magic -- one that transforms her forever."—catalog summary

Zod Wallop
by William Browning Spencer
“Harry Gainesborough wrote a children's story called "Zod Wallop". And then his daughter died. Now Raymond Story, a patient at Harwood Psychiatric Hospital and Harry's biggest fan, has escaped--to find Harry in his remote cabin. Raymond is convinced that the people, creatures, and places of "Zod Wallop" are real. And as events transpire, Harry begins to wonder if Raymond is right.”—catalog summary

Big Fish
by Daniel Wallace
“He could outrun anybody, and he never missed a day of school. He saved lives, tamed giants. Animals loved him. People loved him. Women loved him (and he loved them back). And he knew more jokes than any man alive. Now, as he lies dying, Edward Bloom can't seem to stop telling jokes -- or the tall tales that have made him, in his son's eyes, an extraordinary man. ‘Big Fish’ is the story of this man's life, told as a series of legends and myths inspired by the few facts his son, William, knows. Through these tales -- hilarious and wrenching, tender and outrageous -- William begins to understand his elusive father's great feats, and his great failings.”—book jacket summary
