George Hasenberg, a highly regarded business consultant specializing in mediation, has authored an educational and inspirational book about his experiences surviving a gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST).  In the book, the title of which has not yet been released, Hasenberg tells the story of his completely unexpected diagnosis of this very rare and rarely survived sarcoma.  Candidly writing about the perils he dodged during the diagnostic process, the information he gathered doing intensive extensive research about GIST and other types of cancer, and the life threatening complications following his GIST surgery, his account is both gripping and informative.  Hasenberg spells out the lifestyle changes he has implemented and which he credits with his surviving and thriving.  Instructive, powerful, and inspirational, Hasenberg has written a book for all cancer patients and their families and friends.

Tigers in Red Weather is the debut novel of Liza Klaussmann, a great-great-great-granddaughter of Herman Melville, the author of Moby Dick. Told from the point of view of five different characters, cousins Nick and Helena, Nick’s husband Hughes, and her daughter, Daisy, as well as, Helena’s son, Ed, the story moves back and forth in time from just after World War II to the 1960s with each character’s account.  Reunited for the summer at Tiger House, the family estate on Martha’s Vineyard, decades-old family secrets are revealed after a body is found by Daisy and Ed.  The tip of the pen to The Great Gatsby notwithstanding, Klaussmann gives each of her characters their due, the strong, beautiful Nick, as well as, the quiet Helena, and the others while deftly drawing the reader into worlds and times as divergent as the characters.
