Maud is an irascible 88-year-old Swedish woman with no family, no friends, and... no qualms about a little murder. This funny, irreverent story collection by Helene Tursten, author of the Irene Huss investigations, features two-never-before translated stories that will keep you laughing all the way to the retirement home. Ever since her darling father's untimely death when she was only eighteen, Maud has lived in the family's spacious apartment in downtown Gothenburg rent-free, thanks to a minor clause in a hastily negotiated contract. That was how Maud learned that good things can come from tragedy. Now in her late eighties, Maud contents herself with traveling the world and surfing the net from the comfort of her father's ancient armchair. It's a solitary existence, and she likes it that way. Over the course of her adventures—or misadventures—this little bold lady will handle a crisis with a local celebrity who has her eyes on Maud's apartment, foil the engagement of her long-ago lover, and dispose of some pesky neighbors. But when the local authorities are called to investigate a dead body found in Maud's apartment, will Maud finally become a suspect?

Setting aside just a few minutes to read a story to a loved one can create wonderful moments that might be otherwise lost to silence. Also, many, who love to read, often find it difficult to follow a complicated plot. Some complain that they can't read a full length story because they forget the details halfway through. The Mighty Ant began as an idea to reach out to seniors or others who might be experiencing or caring for those with cognitive dysfunction, while finding a way to contribute funds from the proceeds of the book sales to North Carolina's Chatham County Council on Aging. Submissions of short, easy to understand stories were requested from writers (both professional and amateur) who wanted to participate in this project. As editor and contributor I reached out to writer's groups, neighbors, and social media not knowing what would happen. The submissions came from people living all over the world. They spoke in their own voices with fiction and non-fiction contributions. The only rules were to compose a story of less than 750 words for people suffering from dementia, memory impairment, and those who had compromised attention spans. Too many words can be confusing for these people, while simple words and ideas can be comforting and spark reminiscent conversation. We hope that you will enjoy reading this and sharing it with your loved ones. Printed in large print for easy reading.

In the tales that make up The Elephant Vanishes, the imaginative genius that has made Haruki Murakami an international superstar is on full display. In these stories, a man sees his favorite elephant vanish into thin air; a newlywed couple suffers attacks of hunger that drive them to hold up a McDonald’s in the middle of the night; and a young woman discovers that she has become irresistible to a little green monster who burrows up through her backyard. By turns haunting and hilarious, in The Elephant Vanishes Murakami crosses the border between separate realities—and comes back bearing remarkable treasures. Includes the story "Barn Burning," which is the basis for the major motion picture Burning.
