Nobody Is Ever Missing
Without telling her family, Elyria takes a one-way flight to New Zealand, abruptly leaving her stable but unfulfilling life in Manhattan. As her husband scrambles to figure out what happened to her, Elyria hurtles into the unknown, testing fate by hitchhiking, tacitly being swept into the lives of strangers, and sleeping in fields, forests, and public parks. Her risky and often surreal encounters with the people and wildlife of New Zealand propel Elyria deeper into her deteriorating mind. Haunted by her sister's death and consumed by an inner violence, her growing rage remains so expertly concealed that those who meet her sense nothing unwell. This discord between her inner and outer reality leads her to another obsession: If her truest self is invisible and unknowable to others, is she even alive? The risks Elyria takes on her journey are paralleled by the risks Catherine Lacey takes on the page. In urgent, spiraling prose she whittles away at the rage within Elyria and exposes the very real, very knowable anxiety of the human condition. And yet somehow Lacey manages to poke fun at her unrelenting self-consciousness, her high-stakes search for the dark heart of the self. In the spirit of Haruki Murakami and Amelia Gray, Nobody Is Ever Missing is full of mordant humor and uncanny insights, as Elyria waffles between obsession and numbness in the face of love, loss, danger, and self-knowledge.

Making dinner for the family means catering to various tastes and preferences—not an easy task. After getting the kids dressed and off to school, going to work, running errands, making sure everyone gets to their soccer game/playdate/piano practice on time, the last thing you need is to make five different meals at dinnertime because one child only eats mac and cheese, the other only likes chicken nuggets, and the little one only butter noodles. As the father of five, Dean McDermott is an expert at knowing what kids do and do not like to eat. And as a professionally trained chef, there is not a grown-up dish out there that he can't make kid-friendly. Now Dean's sharing all his secrets.

Along the way you'll learn not to be afraid of your kitchen, how to be creative with food, and you'll expose your kids to new flavors and develop their palates beyond the norm.
