Summary
"Thomas Quinn is having a hard time. A failed novelist, he's stuck writing short stories and audio scripts for other people's characters while his wife, Imogen, is working on a remote island halfway around the world. The bills are piling up, the dirty dishes are stacking in the sink, and the whole world seems to be hurtling toward entropic collapse. Then he gets a voicemail from his father, who has been dead for seven years. Thomas's relationship with Stanley Quinn-a world-famous writer and erstwhile absent father-was always shaky, not least because Stanley always seemed to prefer his enigmatic protégé Andrew Black to his own son. Yet after Black published his first book, which went on to sell over a million copies, he disappeared completely. Now strange things are happening to Thomas, and he can't help but wonder if Black is tugging at the seams of his world behind the scenes. Absurdly brilliant, wildly entertaining, and utterly mind-bending, Maxwell's Demon triumphantly excavates the ways we construct meaning in a world where chaotic collapse looms closer every day"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
"Author Clarissa Katsef is struggling to write her next book. She's just snagged a new artist residency in an ultra-modern apartment, with a view of all of Paris--a dream for any novelist in search of tranquility. But since moving in, she has had the feeling of being watched. Is there a reason to be paranoid? Or is her distraction and discomfort the result of her husband's recent shocking betrayal? Stuck inside, in the midst of a sweltering heatwave, Clarissa enlists her beloved granddaughter in her investigation of the mysterious, high tech building even as she finds herself drawn back into the orbit of her first husband who shares the past grief that she has never let go"--Back cover.

Summary
It's 1966 and Frankie Croy needs a break. Having achieved success with her debut bestseller, she's been trying desperately to live up to the high expectations of her editor and fans, only to fall short with each new book. When she receives a possible career-ending review and then has a very public breakdown, she retreats to Venice in the hopes the new setting will rejuvenate her creativity and inspire her writing. But she finds that she's just as stuck. And then she meets a fellow British expat, a precocious young fan named Gilly who is eager to befriend her favorite author at all costs. An aspiring writer, Gilly worms herself into Frankie's Venetian life and the two begin an uneasy companionship. Frankie is skeptical of someone so relentlessly chipper, and Gilly tells stories that seem too good to be true, and in fact some of them are. This complicated web of desperate friendship, half-truths, and white lies, will lead Frankie to make a choice that is impossible to undo.
