Reporter-turned–television executive Robin Hudson is living it up at New York’s legendary Chelsea Hotel—until murder gets her down in award-winning author Sparkle Hayter’s dazzling comic mystery After a neighbor’s electric wall-hanging short-circuits and sets Robin Hudson’s East Village apartment building on fire, the TV newswoman and her cat are forced to temporarily relocate. Their new digs are in the Chelsea Hotel, home to bohemian artists both famous and infamous. But people have a habit of dying on Robin—this time literally.

She must scramble to find a missing woman and track the last stops of a modern-day underground railroad before she loses her life—and her last chance for romance.

“My Life Has a Price is a sad beautiful story. I asked everybody here to read it.~ Nawal El-Saadawi, author of Woman at Point Zero (Zed Books, 1975) and God Dies by Nile (Zed Books, 1974) etc. “A testament to the best and worst of humanity. You can’t help but read My Life Has a Price and pass it on” .~ Sefi Atta, author of Everything Good Will Come (Swallow, 2010). "A chance at a better life should never be overlooked, but occasionally something foul lurks under opportunity...a read to be very much considered for international memoir collections". The Midwest Book Review, Library Bookwatch, Nov. 2012. One morning on the outskirts of Lagos, Nigeria, a lucky 13-year-old girl named Tina, from a modest family, is preparing to go to France to become part of Linda and Godwin Okpara's family. Linda is a homemaker and Godwin is a soccer player at the top French club Paris Saint-Germain, as well as for the Super Eagles, Nigeria's national squad. The couple have four children and Tina dreams of going with them to school and joining in their games, living the European dream. But, soon after her arrival, the reality becomes different. Written in collaboration with acclaimed French journalist, Cyril Guinet, Tina Okpara recounts how imprisonment, torture, and abuse - in a suburban house in the middle of gentrified Europe in the 21st century - could not break her. Tina's gripping story of survival and escape to rebuild her life is a moving testament to a remarkable woman, a true survivor.

This book takes a single line of code -- the extremely concise BASIC program for the Commodore 64 inscribed in the title -- and uses it as a lens through which to consider the phenomenon of creative computing and the way computer programs exist in culture. The authors of this collaboratively written book treat code not as merely functional but as a text -- in the case of 10 PRINT, a text that appeared in many different printed sources -- that yields a story about its making, its purpose, its assumptions, and more. They consider randomness and regularity in computing and art, the maze in culture, the popular BASIC programming language, and the highly influential Commodore 64 computer.
