The Sixth Man DAVID BALDACCI

Following the instant #1 New York Times bestseller First Family, Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are back on the case. After alleged serial killer Edgar Roy is apprehended and locked away in a mental facility, private investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell are called in by Roy’s lawyer—an old friend of Sean King’s—to look into the case. But their investigation is derailed before it begins: while en route to their first meeting with the lawyer, King and Maxwell discover his dead body. A rash of terrifying events begins to unfold and it is up to King and Maxwell to uncover the truth: is Roy a killer or not? But the more they dig into his past, the more they are bombarded with obstacles, half-truths, and dead ends that make filtering the facts nearly impossible. As each new theory brings a new revelation, King and Maxwell will be pushed to the limit. Could this deadly case be the one that leaves the duo permanently parted? ●●

Righteous Indignation Excuse Me While I Save the World! ANDREW BREITBART

Conservative Internet media critic Andrew Breitbart shares his outspoken views on the liberal political/media machine.

Despised by some, adored by many, Andrew Breitbart has quickly positioned himself as a lightning rod in the world of political hardball. Thanks to his network of conservative websites which are read by millions of Americans, Breitbart has zealously attempted to reveal the so-called “liberal bias” of the mainstream media in our country. Breitbart is perhaps best known for his coverage of the ACORN controversy— which attracted both praise from conservative media outlets as well as outrage from liberal ones.

978-0-446-57282-8 • $27.99 ($30.99 in Canada) Political Science • 6 x 9 • 288 pgs • Territories: World Hachette Audio: Unabr. CD: 978-1-60788-694-5 • $29.98/$32.98

In RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION, Breitbart relates his early years growing up in Los Angeles and then matriculating at Tulane University, and how he gradually became disenchanted with what he calls the “Democratic-Media complex.” Breitbart lays out his theories on how the American media became influenced by these liberal leanings, and why he and other conservatives feel that Americans need to know that too much of the news is being slanted. In short, Breitbart believes that, through their control of the media, liberals are allowed to frame their arguments in a way that keeps conservatives on the defensive. RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION details why this is a growing problem, and what our country needs to do to change it. ●●

Andrew Breitbart is a major power player in the sphere of American conservative influence and opinion. He is the creator of an extensive network of blogs that include Breitbart.com, Breitbart.tv, Big Hollywood, Big Government, and Big Journalism, which launched in 12/09 with what was arguably one of the biggest stories of the year—the ACORN scandal. A former editor of the Drudge Report, he was a primary developer of the Huffington Post. Breibart’s no-holds-barred style and critical take on the liberal left will appeal to the same readership that embraced major bestselling books by Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, Bill O’Reilly, and other top conservative opinion makers. Andrew Breitbart is a frequent guest on numerous national TV and radio shows, including Real Time with Bill Maher, Glenn Beck, Fox News, Laura Ingraham, and CSPAN.

Change Anything The New Science of Personal Success KERRY PATTERSON, JOSEPH GRENNY, DAVID MAXFIELD, RON M c MILLAN, and AL SWITZLER

From the New York Times bestselling authors of Influencer and Crucial Conversations comes a groundbreaking work on the new science of personal success...and how you can change your life.

Why is it that 95% of all diet attempts fail? Why do New Year’s resolutions last no more than a few days? Why can’t people with good intentions seem to make consistent and positive strides in the way they want to improve their careers, financial situation, and physical fitness? Based upon the latest research from a number of psychological and medical fields, CHANGE ANYTHING shows that  traditional willpower is not necessarily the answer to achieving these goals. Indeed, they show that individuals are affected in their behaviors by far more subtle influences. The authors guide readers to understand the powerful and influential forces that can bring real and meaningful results. ●●

Liberty Defined The 50 Urgent Issues That Affect Our Freedom RON PAUL

#1 New York Times bestselling author Ron Paul returns with his most provocative, comprehensive, and compelling arguments for personal freedom to date.

Dr. Ron Paul’s newest book, LIBERTY DEFINED, returns to the format and scope of  his #1 New York Times bestseller The Revolution.  Rather than delve so deeply into one issue (as End The Fed did) or simply update the topics discussed in The Revolution,  this will be a brand new, comprehensive,  A-Z guide to his position (unwavering support of personal liberty and small government) on 50 of the most important issues of our times, both foreign and domestic. His devoted followers will be able to use it as a guidebook for 2012 and beyond, for all their political and educational efforts. With entries ranging in length from a few pages to over ten, LIBERTY DEFINED will be very accessible, easy to digest, and clear cut in its ideology.  ●●

The Revolution (GCP, 978-0-446-53751-3, 4/08) was a surprise smash in Spring 2008. It hit #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and remained on the list for 22 weeks. It also hit The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, USA TODAY, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists, and has sold nearly 200,000 hardcover and trade paperback copies combined. Though not confirmed, there is speculation that Dr. Paul will run for President again in 2012. Even if he does not run, interest in all things political will be rising dramatically in the months surrounding the book’s publication. The author is the founder of CampaignForLiberty.com, an online hub where his many supporters can share their ideas, and continue the momentum he began in his 2008 bid for the presidency. Ron Paul has been featured on The Colbert Report, Late Show with David Letterman, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Real Time With Bill Maher, and on CNN, and in the New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, among other media outlets. A magnetic speaker, he appeals to Democrats, Republicans, and Independents alike.

Praise for End the Fed: “Rarely has a single book not only challenged, but decisively changed my mind.” —Arlo Guthrie PHILLIP LUKE CHICOINE

Ron Paul’s previous hardcover, End the Fed (GCP, 978-0-446-549196, 9/09), debuted on the New York Times bestseller list at #6, where it remained for six consecutive weeks. There are more than 163,000 copies in hardcover and trade paperback print combined.

Excerpt from My Father’s Daughter

I always feel closest to my father, who was the love of my life until his death in 2002, when I am in the kitchen. I can still hear him over my shoulder, heckling me, telling me to be careful with my knife, moaning with pleasure over a bite of something in only the way a Jew from Long Island can, his shoulders doing most of the talking. I will never forget how concentrated he looked in the kitchen, it almost looked like a grimace or a frown if you didn’t know him. He practiced incredible care and precision when he was preparing food. It was as if the deliciousness of the food would convey the love he felt in direct proportion.

This Is a Book DEMETRI MARTIN

From the renowned comedian, creator, star and executive producer/multiple title-holder of Comedy Central’s Important Things with Demetri Martin comes a bold, original, and rectangular kind of humor book. Demetri Martin’s first literary foray is structured much like his critically-acclaimed Comedy Central show. Featuring longer-form essays and conceptual pieces (such as “Protagonists’ Hospital,” a melodrama about the clinic doctors who treat only the flesh wounds and minor head scratches of Hollywood action heroes), as well as his trademark charts, doodles, drawings, one-liners, and lists (i.e., the world views of optimists, pessimists, and contortionists), Martin’s material is varied, but his unique voice and brilliant mind will keep readers in stitches from beginning to end. ●●

An award-winning comedian, Demetri Martin was regularly featured as the “Youth Correspondent” on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Stewart’s Busboy Productions launched Important Things with Demetri Martin in February 2009, and a second season followed in February 2010. When the show launched, Martin was featured on the cover of New York magazine and had large profiles in both the New York Times and The New Yorker. He has never been featured in The Economist or Cat Fancy. Demetri Martin recently starred in Ang Lee’s Taking Woodstock and will also be featured in the upcoming films The Moon People and Will, which he wrote. He has also appeared on the HBO series Flight of the Conchords. Like a riotous blend of Simon Rich, Jack Handey, Woody Allen, and Gary Larson, and reminiscent of such blockbuster books as The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents America (The Book) (GCP, 9/04) and Stephen Colbert’s I Am America (And So Can You!) (GCP, 10/07), THIS IS A BOOK will become an instant comic classic. In addition to his stand-up comedy, his show on Comedy Central, and his acting career, Demetri Martin worked as a staff writer at Late Night with Conan O’Brien, for which he received an Emmy Award® nomination along with his fellow writers.

Praise for Demetri Martin: MARKETING

“He is a palindromist, an anagrammatist, an amateur inventor, and, most visibly these days, an ascendant comedian.”

Two Kisses for Maddy A Memoir of Loss & Love MATTHEW LOGELIN

In the spirit of The Last Lecture and Tuesdays with Morrie comes a deeply honest memoir chronicling the first year of Matt Logelin’s life following the birth of his daughter and the death of his wife.

Matt and Liz Logelin were high school sweethearts. They had it all: a happy marriage, a beautiful new home, and a baby on the way. But just 27 hours after welcoming their first child, Madeline, into the world, Liz suffered a massive pulmonary embolism and died instantly—without ever holding the daughter whose arrival she had so eagerly awaited. Faced with devastating grief and the responsibilities of being a new and single father, Matt found solace by returning to the small blog he had created to keep friends and family updated on Liz’s pregnancy, which today has become a place for him to share with over a million curious readers the day-to-day story of two lives bound by loss and love. Heartbreaking and heartwarming, TWO KISSES FOR MADDY recounts an elegiac, ultimately uplifting story, punctuated by bittersweet— and often humorous—memories and anecdotes. This book will resonate with any reader who has experienced grief, and has sought the courage to live again. ●●

Uppity My Untold Story About the Games People Play BILL WHITE WITH GORDON DILLOW, FOREWORD BY WILLIE MAYS

Always known for being outspoken, Bill White—the former major league All-Star, sportscaster, and president of the National League—goes on the record in a stunning memoir.

A five-time All-Star selection, a World Series champion, and a seven-time Gold Glove Award-winner, Bill White is one of major league baseball’s most respected figures. He began his career in the minors in 1953 in the Deep South and encountered the overt racism that was typical of the times. But rather than turn away, White fought back, reaching not only the major leagues, but getting teammates and ballclubs to follow his lead. Following his highly-successful 13-season major league career, White spent 18 years as a broadcaster for the New York Yankees, leaving the broadcast booth to become president of the National League. Now he shares neverbefore-told stories about his long working relationship with Phil Rizzuto, insights on George Steinbrenner, Barry Bonds, Reggie Jackson, Thurman Munson, Bob Gibson, Bart Giamatti, Fay Vincent, and scores of other top baseball figures and Hall of Famers. White built his career by speaking his mind, and in UPPITY, he certainly doesn’t hold back. ●●

Bill White was a first baseman for the New York and San Francisco Giants, the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Philadelphia Phillies. He remains a beloved figure in those cities as well as throughout all of major league baseball. He will be in demand from the sports world media, including TV and radio. Books by and about legendary baseball figures are perennially popular, as demonstrated by Bill Madden’s New York Times bestseller, Steinbrenner: The Last Lion of Baseball (Harper, 5/10), and Jane Leavy’s Sandy Koufax: A Lefty’s Legacy (HarperCollins, 9/02), which has sold nearly 200,000 hardcover copies. Known for his sharp views on baseball and the biggest personalities in the game, White’s opinions in UPPITY will definitely generate headlines and controversy, and make for a great Father’s Day gift. The foreword is written by baseball Hall of Famer Willie Mays, who is a long-time friend of White’s.

The Pile of Stuff at the Bottom of the Stairs CHRISTINA HOPKINSON

In the hilarious, harried vein of Allison Pearson’s bestselling I Don’t Know How She Does It, Christina Hopkinson presents an irresistible tale of one wife and mother’s trip beyond the breaking point. What do you hate most about the one you love? Mary doesn’t know what makes her angrier—the way her husband doesn’t quite reach the laundry basket when he throws his dirty clothes at it or the way he never empties the dishwasher, but leaves the “difficult” things for her to put away. Is it because she is supposedly “only working part-time” that she is responsible for everything in the house? In theory, Mary knows how you’re supposed to get the behavior you want. So now she’s designing the spousal equivalent of a star chart. Every little thing her husband does wrong is going on it. And yes, she knows you’re supposed to reward the good behavior, not punish the bad, but the rules for those in middle age are different than the ones for those not even in middle school.... In  THE PILE OF STUFF AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STAIRS, Hopkinson pens a wry, astute novel about marriage, motherhood, children, work, and that never-ending pile of clutter.  ●●

This book will appeal to this widespread readership in the very same way.

The Reading Promise My Father and the Books We Shared ALICE OZMA with a foreword by JIM BROZINA

The heartwarming true story of a young woman whose single father read aloud to her every night until the day she left for college.

When Alice Ozma was in 4th grade, she and her single father, an elementary school librarian, made a pact to see if he could read aloud to her for 100 consecutive nights. On the hundredth night, they shared pancakes to celebrate, but it soon became evident that neither wanted to let go of their storytelling ritual. So they decided to continue what they called “The Streak.” From J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series to Shakespeare’s plays, Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, and all 14 L. Frank Baum Wizard of Oz books read four times each, Alice’s father read aloud to her every night without fail until the day she left for college. Told in a series of vignettes about Alice’s relationship with her dad and the life lessons she learned from the stories he read to her, THE READING PROMISE is about the power of books and how they can enrich family ties in surprising ways. ●●

Alice Ozma wrote about her reading experiences for a graduate school entrance essay. The head of public relations for her undergraduate university was so enchanted by the story she contacted the New York Times, who promptly published a widely read article about Ozma and her father, Jim Brozina. This touching tale of a father and daughter who bond over books is certain to attract audiences who enjoyed The Film Club (Twelve, 5/08), Big Russ & Me (Miramax, 5/04), and Sh*t My Dad Says (HarperCollins, 5/10). After the New York Times story ran, the family has been inundated with calls from the Today show, Good Morning America, and CBS News. The author has put off all media until the book comes out to tie in to its publication. THE READING PROMISE has pay-it-forward appeal and the New York Times article has already begun to inspire people across the country to start their own reading “streaks.”

The Story of Beautiful Girl RACHEL SIMON

An unforgettably moving love story about the improbable odds faced by a disabled couple and a lost child—from the author of the bestseller Riding the Bus with My Sister. It is 1968. Lynnie, a young white woman with a developmental disability, and Homan, an African American deaf man, are locked away in an institution, the School for the Incurable and Feebleminded, and have been left to languish, forgotten. Deeply in love, they escape and find refuge in the farmhouse of Martha, a retired schoolteacher and widow. But the couple is not alone—Lynnie has just given birth to a baby girl. When the authorities catch up to them that same night, Homan escapes into the darkness, and Lynnie is caught. But before she is forced back into the institution, she whispers two words to Martha: “Hide her.” And so begins the 40-year epic journey of Lynnie, Homan, Martha, and baby Julia—lives divided by seemingly insurmountable obstacles, yet drawn together by a secret pact and extraordinary love.

Praise for Rachel Simon: “A heartwarming, life-affirming journey through both the present and the past.... Read this book. It might just change your life.” —Boston Herald on Riding the Bus with My Sister

MARKETING Excerpt from The Story of Beautiful Girl At the end of the night that would change everything, the widow stood on her porch and watched as the young woman was marched down her front drive and shoved into the sedan. The girl did not fight back, bound and tied as she was, nor did she cry out into the chill autumn rain, so surely the doctor and his attendants thought they had won. They did not know, as the car doors slammed shut, the engine came on, and the driver steered them down the muddy hill toward the road, that the widow and the girl in the back seat had just defied them right under their noses. The widow waited until the taillights reached the bottom of the drive, then turned and entered her house. And as she stood at the foot of the staircase, hoping they’d show mercy to the young woman, and worrying about the whereabouts of the runaway man, the widow heard the sound the doctor hadn’t been seeking. It was the sound that would always connect her to the girl, and forever make her remember the man. It was the sweet, deep breaths of a hidden person. A sleeping stranger. A baby.

Lies that Chelsea Handler Told Me Chelsea’s Family, Friends, and Other Victims FOREWORD BY CHELSEA HANDLER

No one is safe from the wicked wit and prank-loving ways of Chelsea Handler—especially the people she loves most—in this collection of hilarious original essays from those who’ve been at her mercy.

“My tendency to make up stories and lie compulsively for the sake of my own amusement takes up a good portion of my day and provides me with a peace of mind not easily attainable in this economic climate.” —Chelsea Handler It’s no lie: Chelsea Handler loves to expose “dumbassness,” the condition people suffer from that allows them to fall prey to her brand of complete and utter nonsense. Friends, family, co-workers—they’ve all been tricked by Chelsea into believing stories of total foolishness and into behaving like total fools. Luckily, they’ve lived to tell the tales and, for the very first time—write about their humiliating experiences. As Chelsea so eloquently puts it in the foreword, “It’s not my fault that people are so stupid....”

Chelsea’s fans know how much she enjoys playing pranks, and they love hearing the stories. Chapter 10 of Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang is about the elaborate jokes she’s perpetrated on people, and is a huge fan favorite. Chelsea has been writing about her friends and family since her first book, My Horizontal Life (Bloomsbury USA, 6/05), and she’s always talking about them on her show. Now, her fans will finally “hear” from them firsthand. Contributors to the book will also include comedians who regularly appear on Chelsea Lately and perform in the Comedians of Chelsea Lately stand-up tour.

This Won’t Hurt a Bit (And Other White Lies): My Education in Medicine & Motherhood MICHELLE AU, MD

Hilarious and poignant, THIS WON’T HURT A BIT is an exhilarating account of a medical residency, narrated by a writer who is the Perri Klass of the new millennium.

Michelle Au started medical school armed only with a surfeit of idealism, a handful of old ER episodes to reference, and some vague notion about “helping people.” This is the story of how she grew up and became a real doctor. Through her years in medical training, she also attempts to maintain a life outside the hospital as she and her resident husband decide to have a baby. A new mother struggling to balance long days and nights in the hospital with her “real” life, Au finds herself in the classic struggle of working motherhood, trying to do two equally high-stress jobs without losing her sanity or sense of humor. THIS WON’T HURT A BIT is a story about the imperfect, occasionally ridiculous, never boring process of medical training and life outside it, where an ordinary person can learn to be the kind of doctor and mother she wants to be under the most extraordinary circumstances. ●●

Michelle Au has perfected her deadpan and hilarious prose style writing about her experiences online for the last nine years. Her blog The Underwear Drawer, www.theunderweardrawer.blogspot.com, has been featured on WebMD, The Student Doctor Network, Metafilter, and Revolution Health. Her medical comic strips have been featured extensively at academic medical centers internationally. From hit TV shows Scrubs, Grey’s Anatomy, and House to New York Times bestsellers Better (Metropolitan, 4/07) by Atul Gawande, and Final Exam (Knopf, 1/07) by Pauline Chen, audiences love a behindthe-scenes look at the medical profession. Au’s distinctive experience as a resident and mother sets her apart from the pack. Michelle Au graduated from Wellesley College in 1999, received her MD from the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 2003, and completed her residency in anesthesiology at the Columbia University Medical Center in Manhattan. She is currently an anesthesiologist in private practice.

The Girl in the Garden KAMALA NAIR

The Namesake meets The Secret Garden in this enchanting debut novel that is a dark, grown-up fairy tale.

At once a powerful family saga and compelling personal odyssey, Kamala Nair’s debut novel tells the story of a conflicted young woman who, in an effort to seek clarity about her impending marriage, revisits in memory one fateful summer from her childhood. When Rakhee Singh was just 10-years-old, her world was shaken irrevocably when her beautiful yet troubled mother spirited her away to visit their ancestral home in an Indian village untouched by time. It is there, in the mysterious jungle behind the house, that Rakhee discovers a long-hidden secret, one that will expose family skeletons and form her youthful impressions about love and fidelity going forward. Nair brings her enormous powers of description to her first novel, infusing scene after scene with emotional depth. Lush and sensual, THE GIRL IN THE GARDEN covers several decades and crosses continents. ●●

Nair puts her own unique spin on the timeless classic The Secret Garden by setting her story in modern-day India. Kamala Nair was born in London and grew up in the United States. A graduate of Wellesley College, she studied literature at Oxford University, and received an M.Phil in Creative Writing from Trinity College, Dublin, in 2005. The novel’s rich setting and themes of loss of innocence and family secrets will appeal to the same readership that embraced Ian McEwan’s Atonement (Nan A. Talese, 5/02) and Jhumpa Lahiri’s The Namesake (Mariner Books, 9/04). It will also inspire lively discussions among reading groups.

#1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci delivers a moving family drama about learning to love again after terrible heartbreak and loss. A It’s almost Christmas, but there is no joy in the house of terminally ill Jack and his family. With only a short time left to live, he spends his last days preparing to say goodbye to his devoted wife Lizzie and their three children. Then, unthinkably, tragedy strikes again when Lizzie is killed in a car accident. With no one able to care for the children, they are separated from each other and sent to live with family members around the country. Just when all seems lost, a miraculous turn of events occurs and Jack begins to recover. He rises from what should have been his deathbed, determined to bring his fractured family back together. Struggling to rebuild their lives after Lizzie’s death, Jack reunites everyone at Lizzie’s childhood home on the oceanfront in South Carolina. And there, over one unforgettable summer, Jack will begin to learn to love again, and he and his children will learn how to become a family once more.

ONE SUMMER is a romantic tale unlike anything Baldacci has written before, but one thing is the same: it’s a page-turner, driven by the kind of dramatic storytelling his fans expect. Along with his spring and fall thrillers, this summer-reading blockbuster will be Baldacci’s third book published in 2011.

Also available:

David Baldacci is one of the most popular novelists writing today. His books are published in over 40 languages in more than 80 countries. There are over 100 million copies in print worldwide.

“ONE SUMMER is a story of love, tragedy, second chances, fear and uncertainty. It came to me in one breathtaking mind rush, unfolding like frames of film in my head, while I was waiting for my son’s Catholic confirmation ceremony to start. It is a tale of a love so strong that nothing, absolutely nothing can break its bonds. So important was this story for me that I put everything else aside and wrote it, the words pouring out of me so fast it felt like someone else was telling me what to write.

DAVID BALDACCI lives with his family in Virginia.

In the end we are all survivors, even in death. We survive through those we have loved, those we have affected in some way. No matter what we’ve made of our lives, all we have in the end is each other. And there is nothing so powerful as a love that transcends all other things. I wish everyone could have one summer to discover the absolute truth of that. ONE SUMMER was a special book for me to write, and I hope you enjoy it.” —DAVID BALDACCI

Naamah’s Blessing JACQUELINE CAREY

New York Times bestselling author Jacqueline Carey delivers the explosive conclusion to her critically acclaimed Naamah series.

Returning to Terre d’Ange, Moirin finds the royal family broken. Wracked by grief at the loss of Queen Jehanne, King Daniel is unable to rule. Prince Thierry, the heir, is believed dead after sailing to explore Terra Nova. And three-year-old Desirée is like her mother: tempestuous, intelligent, and fiery, but desperately lonely, and a vulnerable pawn in a game of shifting allegiances. As tensions mount, King Daniel asks Moirin to be Desirée’s oath-sworn protector; but it is a vision revealed by the spirit of Queen Jehanne that sends Moirin on a quest. Prince Thierry is alive, and Desirée’s only hope is to bring the heir home to rule. Another specter from the past haunts Moirin. Traveling with Thierry is Raphael de Mereliot, her manipulative former lover. Years ago, Raphael forced her to help him summon fallen angels in the hopes of acquiring mystical gifts and knowledge. It was a disastrous effort that nearly killed them, and Moirin must finally bear the costs of her bitter mistakes. ●●

Money Can’t Buy Love CONNIE BRISCOE

In Connie Briscoe’s new novel, one woman is about to gain more money than she ever dreamed—and possibly lose everything that ever mattered.

At the age of 38, Lena needs a serious jumpstart. Her job is draining her, the exclusive women’s social group she wants to belong to more than anything is giving her the cold shoulder, and her boyfriend of three years can’t seem to ask that one question she’s been patiently waiting to hear. When Lena thinks things can’t get any worse, she wins the jackpot in the Maryland lottery. Before her newfound windfall, if Lena didn’t have bad luck, she wouldn’t have any luck at all. Now, she’s the flavor of the month. She’s able to quit her job, buy everything she’s ever wanted, the commitment-phobe Gerald has finally put a ring on her finger, and the women’s group won’t leave her alone.  But she’s about to find out that money buys nothing but misery, because just as her life begins to come together, the things she held dear are beginning to fall apart. Has life really changed for the better, or does fortune come with a heavy price? ●●

City of the Snakes DARREN SHAN

New York Times bestselling author Darren Shan delivers the final installment of his “riveting,”* post-apocalyptic series set in a darkly imagined world called the City.

For 10 years Capac Raimi has ruled the City. Created by the first Cardinal to continue his legacy, Capac cannot be killed. Then Capac disappears. His trusted lieutenant, Ford Tasso, suspects the mysterious villacs, ancient and powerful Incan priests. To Ford, only one man has the cunning to outwit such adversaries—Al Jeery, who has taken the guise of his father, the terrifying assassin Paucar Wami. Al has no love for Capac and no wish to tangle with the villacs. Until Ford promises him the one thing he truly craves—retribution against the man who killed those he loved most and ruined his life. Lured into the twisted, nightmarish world of the Incan priests, Al will learn more about the City than he ever imagined, and be offered more power than he ever desired. But in the City, everything comes at a cost.... ●●

Robert Ludlum’sTM The Bourne Dominion Eric Van Lustbader

The return of Jason Bourne! Jason Bourne is back and being targeted for death— by a longtime friend and ally.

While on a quest to kill a vicious Colombian drug lord, Jason Bourne is interrupted by Jalal Essai, a defector from Severus Domna, a secret, international cabal working to influence world events for its own power and financial gain. Bourne has tangled with Domna before and has concerns about that organization. Now, Essai proposes a partnership to destroy them. Bourne, who always works alone, is suspicious. Yet, Essai promises accurate intelligence and opens with a gift of information: Domna has targeted Bourne for death. The assignment was given to Boris Karpov, the head of Russia’s FSB-2 and a longtime friend and ally of Jason’s. They’ve saved each others’ lives on more than one occasion, and Boris is one of the most determined, honorable, justice-hungry men Bourne knows. What is Bourne to do now that he knows a knife is about to be thrust into his back—and the man wielding it is someone he’d trust with his life? ●●

“ADRENALINE lives up to its name.

It’s pure thriller in pace, but Abbott manages to keep the book’s heart anchored in the right place. The characters aren’t cardboard action figures, but people under incredible stresses and strains. I read it in a big gulp.” —CHarLaine HarriS

Excerpt from ADRENALINE: “So the question is how do we find this Money Czar and…” My phone beeped. When your wife is seven months pregnant, you get a free pass on taking calls in meetings. “Sorry,” I said to the suits. “Pregnant wife.” I stepped out in the hallway. “Hello?” “Monkey?” Lucy said. “I need you to meet me outside.” “Um, I’m in a meeting.” “I need you to step outside. Now, Sam.” Then I heard it: an awful undercurrent in her words, like a shadow eddying under summer water. “You sick?” “Please, just come outside.” Bad news, then, to be delivered face to face. A coldness gripped my heart. The Bundle. She had gone to the doctor. Something was wrong with the baby. I hurried out of our offices. “Are you okay?”

“No…just come find me outside. Please.” “What’s the matter?” I headed out onto the busy street. It offered a steady stream of pedestrians – office workers, couriers, shoppers, the inevitable London tourists. No Lucy. “Where are you?” “Sam, now. Please. Run.” I heard my pregnant wife crying on the phone. “Lucy? Lucy?” I gripped the phone so hard the edges bit into my fingers. Now I heard her sobbing: “Let me go.” My eyes darted everywhere and I heard a car honk. I turned and saw a truck whip around an idling Audi, thirty feet away, the car facing me on the opposite side of the road, Lucy in the passenger seat. My office building stood between me the Audi. A man sat in the drivers’ seat, bent toward Lucy. She looked right at me. Then the blast hit.

Burnt Mountain ANNE RIVERS SIDDONS

New York Times bestseller Anne Rivers Siddons returns to Georgia with a dramatic tale of love and betrayal within a wealthy Southern family.

Growing up, the only place tomboy Thayer Wentworth felt at home was at her summer camp—Camp Greyledge on Burnt Mountain in Georgia. It was there that she came alive and where she met Nick Abrams, her first love…and first heartbreak. Years later, Thayer marries Aengus, an Irish professor, and they move into her deceased grandmother’s house in Atlanta, only miles from her beloved camp. There, Aengus and Thayer lead quiet and happy lives until Aengus is invited up to the camp to tell old Irish tales to the campers. As Aengus spends less time at home and becomes more distant, Thayer must confront dark secrets—about her mother, her first love, and, most devastating of all, her husband. ●●

Four Kitchens My Life Behind the Burner in New York, Hanoi, Tel Aviv, and Paris LAUREN SHOCKEY

A Cook’s Tour meets Heat when a young chef travels the globe to test her mettle in the hyper-masculine world of restaurant kitchens.

At the French Culinary Institute, Lauren Shockey learned to salt food properly, cook fearlessly over high heat, and knock back beers like a pro. But she also discovered that her real culinary education wouldn’t begin until she actually worked in a restaurant. After a somewhat disappointing apprenticeship in the French city of Toulouse, Shockey hatched a plan for her dream year: to apprentice in four high-end restaurants around the world. She started in her hometown of New York City under the famed chef Wylie Dufresne at the molecular gastronomy hotspot wd-50, then traveled to Vietnam, Israel, and back to France. From the ribald kitchen humor to fierytempered workers to tasks ranging from the mundane (mincing cases of shallots) to the extraordinary (cooking seafood on the line), Shockey shows us what really happens behind the scenes in haute cuisine, and includes original recipes integrating the techniques and flavors she learned along the way. With the dramatic backdrop of restaurant life, readers will be delighted by the adventures of a bright and restless young woman looking for her place in the world. ●●

Books that reveal the inner workings of restaurants have found huge readerships, as evidenced by Service Included (William Morrow, 9/07), Heat (Knopf, 5/06), Kitchen Confidential (Bloomsbury, 5/00), and The Making of a Chef (Henry Holt & Co., 12/97). Like Anthony Bourdain’s A Cook’s Tour (Bloomsbury, 12/02), the international settings will appeal to armchair travelers wanting a taste of life in these cities. The audience who made Eat, Pray, Love (Viking, 2/06) a New York Times bestseller will embrace FOUR KITCHENS for its similar theme of self-discovery. Lauren Shockey has written for the New York Times, Gastronomica, Slate, and the Atlantic Food Channel, among many other publications. She has worked as a freelance cookbook editor for the Food Network and as an editor and recipe tester at the New York Times Style Magazine. She holds a bachelor’s in French literature from the University of Chicago, a master’s in food studies from New York University, and a diploma from the French Culinary Institute.

Tony and Susan AUSTIN WRIGHT

Originally published in 1993, this brilliant and chilling novel of marriage, murder, and revenge, is being republished worldwide and is destined to become a modern classic.

Fifteen years ago, Susan Morrow left her first husband Edward Sheffield. Now, she’s living a comfortable, but passionless life in middle class suburbia as a doctor’s wife. Out of the blue she receives a package containing her ex-husband’s novel with a note asking her to read the manuscript; she was always his best critic. Immediately, as she reads, she is drawn into the fictional life of Tony Hastings, a math professor driving his family to their summerhouse in Maine. As the Hastings’s ordinary, civilized lives are disastrously, violently sent off course, Susan is plunged back into the past, forced to confront the darkness that inhabits her, and driven to name the fear that gnaws at her future and will change her life forever. Now being rediscovered and republished throughout the world, TONY AND SUSAN is a lost masterpiece of American fiction. It is a dazzling, riveting novel within a novel of imagination and reality, fear and regret, blood and heartbreak. ●●

True Compass A Memoir EDWARD M. KENNEDY

“Deeply affecting....Mr. Kennedy’s conversational gifts as a storyteller and his sense of humor—so often remarked on by colleagues and friends—shine through here.” —Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

In this historic memoir, Ted Kennedy takes us inside his family, re-creating life with his parents and brothers and explaining their profound impact on him. For the first time, he describes his heartbreak and years of struggle in the wake of their deaths. Through it all, he describes his work in the Senate on the major issues of our time—civil rights, Vietnam, Watergate, the quest for peace in Northern Ireland—and the cause of his life: improved health care for all Americans. His life was marked by tragedy and perseverance, a love of family, and an abiding faith. There were controversies, too, and Kennedy addresses them with unprecedented candor. TRUE COMPASS will endure as the definitive account from a member of America’s most heralded family, an inspiring legacy to readers and to history, and a deeply moving story of a life like no other. ●●

“Between Mr. Weintraub’s skills as a raconteur, Rich Cohen’s punchy style as his co-writer and a fabulous cast…this book is paved wall to wall with funny, hard-nosed stories.”

—Janet Maslin, New York Times

Here is the story of Jerry Weintraub: the self-made, Brooklynborn, Bronx-raised impresario, Hollywood producer, legendary deal maker, and friend of politicians and stars. No matter where nature has placed him—the club rooms of Brooklyn, the Mafia dives of New York’s Lower East Side, the wilds of Alaska, or the hills of Hollywood—he has found a way to put on a show and sell tickets at the door. In WHEN I STOP TALKING, YOU’LL KNOW I’M DEAD, we follow Weintraub from his first great success at age 26 with Elvis Presley, whom he took on the road with the help of Colonel Tom Parker; to the immortal days with Sinatra and the Rat Pack; to his crowning hits as a movie producer, starting with Robert Altman and Nashville, continuing with Oh, God!, The Karate Kid movies, and Diner, and summiting with Ocean’s Eleven, Twelve, and Thirteen. With wit, wisdom, and the cool confidence that has colored his remarkable career, Jerry chronicles a quintessentially American journey, one marked by luck, love, and improvisation. The stories he tells and the lessons we learn are essential, not just for those who love movies and music, but for businessmen, entrepreneurs, artists and —everyone. 978-0-446-54816-8 • $13.99 ($15.50 in Canada) Memoir • 6 x 9 • 304 pgs • 16-pg 4/c insert • Publishing background: Twelve hardcover • Territories: World English Hachette Audio: Unabr.

WAR SEBASTIAN JUNGER

“Absorbing and original....WAR strives to offer not just a picture of American fighting men but a discourse on the nature of war itself.” —Dexter Filkins, New York Times Book Review

Over 15 months, Sebastian Junger followed a single platoon based at a remote outpost in eastern Afghanistan. His objective was both simple and ambitious: to convey what soldiers experience—what war actually feels like. He describes things that few civilians will ever witness or go through: the endless, body-numbing anticipation of battle; the unquestioned and automatic risks soldiers take in combat situations to protect their brothers; the adrenaline-fueled confusion of being ambushed. Junger shows what it means to fight, to serve, and to face mortal danger on a constant basis. In the vivid prose for which he has become known, he relates the physical toil, the suffocating heat, the sounds of gunfire, and the agony of loss. WAR delivers an acutely observed and heartfelt depiction of an experience young men have lived through for millennia—one that few of us at home truly comprehend, and which remains, even today, the ultimate test of character. ●●

Hitch-22 A Memoir CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS

“It’s delicious writing, highly intelligent, and very provocative....If you’re going to disagree with someone, you want your adversary to be the best—he is.” —New York Post

Most who have observed Christopher Hitchens over the years would agree that he possesses a ferocious intellect and is unafraid to tackle the most contentious subjects. Now 60, English-born and American by adoption; all atheist and partly Jewish; bohemian (even listing “drinking” along with “disputation” as “hobbies” in Who’s Who), he has held to a consistent thread of principle whether opposing war in Vietnam or supporting intervention in Iraq. As a foreign correspondent in some of the world’s nastiest places, a lecturer and teacher, and an esteemed literary critic, Hitchens manifests a style that is at once ironic, witty, and tough-minded. A legendary bon vivant with an unquenchable thirst for literature, he has sometimes ridiculed those who claim that the personal is political, though he has often seemed to illustrate that very idea. Condemned to be able to see both sides of any argument, Christopher Hitchens has contradictions that contain their own multitudes. ●●

Rich Boy SHARON POMERANTZ

“Compulsively readable. RICH BOY is told with such page-turning skill that its pleasures… feel rich indeed.” —Entertainment Weekly

Robert Vishniak is the favored son of Oxford Circle, a working-class Jewish neighborhood in 1970s Philadelphia. Handsome and clever, Robert glides into the cloistered universities of New England, where scions of unimaginable wealth and influence stand shoulder to shoulder with scholarship paupers like himself who wash dishes for book money. The doors that open there lead Robert to the highest circles of Manhattan society during the heart of the Reagan boom where everything Robert has learned about women, through seduction and heartbreak, pays off. For a brief moment, he has it all—but the world in which he finds himself is not the world from which he comes, and a chance encounter with a beautiful girl from the old neighborhood—and the forgotten life she reawakens—threatens to unravel his carefully constructed new identity. ●●

In the literary tradition of such masterworks as American Pastoral and The Assistant, RICH BOY evokes the literary storytelling talents of Philip Roth, Bernard Malamud, and Herman Wouk. Like The Emperor’s Children (Vintage, 6/07) by Claire Messud and Jenna Blum’s Those Who Save Us (Harcourt, 5/05), this novel’s themes of love, sacrifice, and family secrets will inspire spirited● discussions among book club members.

When Abraham Lincoln was nine years old, his mother died from an ailment called the “milk sickness.” Only later did he learn that his mother’s deadly affliction was actually the work of a local vampire, seeking to collect a debt owed by Lincoln’s father. When Lincoln learned the truth, he vowed revenge and kept one passion hidden throughout his life: the elimination of all vampires. His valiant fight against the undead was all but lost to history, until Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln. Using the journal as his guide, Seth reconstructs Lincoln’s life story and uncovers the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation. ●●

God Never Blinks 50 Lessons for Life’s Little Detours REGINA BRETT

Two-time Pulitzer Prize-finalist and columnist Regina Brett’s powerful New York Times bestselling guide to getting the most out of what life has to offer—including the curveballs.

I always felt that at the moment I was born, God must have blinked. He missed the occasion and never knew I had arrived…I ended up confused by the nuns at age 6, a lost soul who drank too much at 16, an unwed mother at 21, a college graduate at 30, a single mother for 18 years, and finally, a wife at 40, married to a man who treated me like a queen. Then I got cancer at 41. It took a year to fight it, then a year to recover from the fight. When I turned 45, I lay in bed reflecting on all life had taught me. My soul sprang a leak and ideas flowed out.... When Brett turned 50, she turned her life lessons into deeply personal essays that will strike a chord with anyone who has ever gone through tough times—and is there anyone who hasn’t? ●●

Sandwiched in a love triangle, Foxy can’t seem to get her husband to show her any type of affection. “Trysexual” Victoria wears her heart on her sleeve and falls for any man or woman who can bring her to climax. Dominatrix Déjà, the toughest sister of the three, is perfect on the outside, but her need to control everything around her may prove detrimental to the success of their business—and her marriage. When the local police chief makes an indecent proposal and attempts to shut down their operation forever, the women must decide whether to stand together and fight, or risk losing their business and, possibly, their freedom. ●●

Little Pink House A True Story of Defiance and Courage JEFF BENEDICT

A fascinating and riveting “modern morality tale” (The Wall Street Journal) about the famous eminent domain case from New London, CT, that rocked the nation.

In 1997, 40-year-old nurse Suzette Kelo scraped up enough money to buy her own home, an old cottage in a blue-collar neighborhood overlooking the seacoast in New London, Connecticut. The house needed work, but she didn’t care. Susette painted it pink and moved in, believing her dream had come true. Little did she know that the  City of New London, desperate to revive its failing economy, wanted to raze her house and others like it in order to win a lucrative Pfizer pharmaceutical contract that would bring new business into the city. Kelo and 14 neighbors flat out refused to sell, so the city decided to exercise its power of eminent domain to condemn their homes, launching one of the most extraordinary legal cases of our time, a case that ultimately reached the United States Supreme Court. ●●

This edition contains a new epilogue that discusses Pfizer’s decision to leave New London, CT, rendering the U.S. Supreme Court decision moot. It will also include an astonishing admission from one of the Connecticut Supreme Court justices. The hardcover edition was praised in The Wall Street Journal, Boston Globe, and Publishers Weekly. Tales of communities battling injustice capture the public imagination, as demonstrated by the national bestselling success of Jonathan Harr’s A Civil Action (Random House, 1995), which was made into a hit film starring John Travolta and Robert Duvall. Jeff Benedict is considered one of the best investigative journalists in America and is the acclaimed author of several books, including The Mormon Way of Doing Business (Business Plus, 1/07). His work has also been published in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Sports Illustrated, among other publications. He is also a soughtafter speaker about the details of this case and is a member of the Hachette Speakers Bureau. Hardcover ISBN: 978-0-446-50862-9, 1/09

The Bed Bug Survival Guide The Only Book You Will Need to Avoid—or Eliminate—This Pest Now Jeffrey Eisenberg

The first book by a leading expert on both treating and preventing bed bug infestation in the home, office, and everywhere else.

From the schoolboy who carried them home in his backpack to the young assistant who got them from her work cubicle to the executive who picked them up on an overseas flight, it can no longer be denied that the country is gripped by a bed bug epidemic. Now, pest control expert Jeffrey Eisenberg shares his best strategies for treating and preventing bed bug infestation once and for all, including advice on: • Prevention—what to do immediately, daily, weekly, and monthly. • Travel—the five biggest mistakes made during hotel stays. • Life—avoiding bed bugs in unexpected places like gyms, malls, movie theaters, and airplanes. • Treatment—Green? Heat? Cryonite? Fumigation of furniture? • Exterminators—hiring one who actually knows what to do. With Eisenberg’s advice, readers can lower their risk of infestation by up to 60%—and save thousands of dollars! Or, if they have bed bugs, they can be sure they are using the right method to get rid of them. 978-0-446-58515-6 • $12.99 ($14.50 in Canada) Nonfiction • 5 1/4 x 8 • 194 pgs • Publishing background: GCP original • Territories: World

A media presence, he has been featured on the Today show, CBS Early Show, Dateline, CNN, and ABC News, among other programs, and has been covered in the New York Times, USA TODAY, and New York magazine, among other publications. Additionally, he co-wrote the official NYC guidelines for bed bug treatment. Since 2007, bed bug presence is up more than 70% nationwide by one conservative estimate. Bed bugs are in all 50 states, with infestation beyond major cities such as New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Washington, DC. In fact, persistent outbreaks have been reported in Hawaii, Colorado, Kansas, and Ohio. These critters do not discriminate!

Innocent SCOTT TUROW

“A driving, unputdownable courtroom drama/murder mystery that is also a literary treasure….I came away feeling amazed and fulfilled, as we only do when we read novelists at the height of their powers. Put this on your don’t-miss list.” —Stephen King More than 20 years after Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto went head-to-head in the shattering murder trial of Presumed Innocent, the men are pitted against each other once again in a riveting psychological match. When Sabich, now over 60 years old and the chief judge of an appellate court, finds his wife, Barbara, dead under mysterious circumstances, Molto accuses him of murder for the second time, setting into motion a trial that is vintage Turow—the courtroom at its most taut and explosive. With his characteristic insight into both the dark truths of the human psyche and the dense intricacies of the criminal justice system, Scott Turow proves once again that some books simply compel us to read late into the night, desperate to know who did it. ●●

Thank You Notes JIMMY FALLON

Late Night host and former SNL funnyman Jimmy Fallon transforms his show’s brilliant and most popular weekly segment into this hilarious, low-priced book.

“Thank you, slow walking family walking in front of me on the sidewalk. No, please, take your time. And definitely spread out, too, so you create a barricade of idiots. I am so thankful that you forced me to walk on the street and risk getting hit by a car in order to pass you so I could resume walking at a normal human pace.” Jimmy Fallon has a few people and a few things to thank. In this brand-new book, the very first to come from his show, he addresses some 200+ subjects in need of his undying “gratitude.” Each page will feature one note and a photograph of its recipient. But why  read  any more about  format when you can read another sample instead: “Thank you, Miley Cyrus, for being 16 and acting like a stripper at the Teen Choice Awards. If you REALLY wanna piss off your dad, why not just cut off his allowance?”

DANA EDELSON

From Hillary Clinton to a light bulb he is too lazy to replace, these are the subjects that make Jimmy’s life a little bit fuller.  ●●

Backseat Saints JOSHILYN JACKSON

“BACKSEAT SAINTS will pull you in and won’t let you out until the last page. Raw, tangy, and funny….I love reading about smart, flawed and ultimately wise women, like Rose Mae.” —Kathryn Stockett, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Help

Ro Grandee is the perfect Texas housewife. She’s determined to be nothing like her long-missing mother, the one who left her with only a heap of old novels and her father’s fists for company, so Ro keeps quiet and takes her husband’s punches like a lady. But Ro wasn’t always this way. Underneath her pastel skirts and hidden bruises lies Rose Mae Lolley, teenaged spitfire, Alabama heartbreaker, and a crack shot with a pistol. Rose Mae is resurrected when a gypsy’s tarot cards foretell doom for dutiful Ro: her handsome husband is going to kill her. Unless she kills him first. Armed with only her wit, her pawpy’s ancient .45, and her dog, Fat Gretel, Rose escapes and heads cross country, unearthing a host of family secrets along the way. What she discovers will force her to choose between the past and her future—between being a victim or a survivor. ●●

The Realm of Hungry Spirits LORRAINE LÓPEZ

The award-winning author of The Gifted Gabaldón Sisters returns with a new novel about a woman who craves solitude, only to find family more fulfilling.

Marina Lucero appreciates peace and order. Unfortunately, the people around her do not. An ESL teacher in Southern California, all Marina wants is something to believe in. Like her mother, sequestered away in a Carmelite convent down in Mexico, or her late father, whose last days were spent in peaceful meditation. But when her house is full of freeloaders; when her best friend can’t seem to escape an abusive relationship; and when the closest thing Marina has to a daughter is dangerously close to drowning in grief, faith feels in short supply. Desperate for a more tranquil life, Marina even considers an old Santeria ritual to help cleanse her soul. But is this spiritual housecleaning really the answer to her prayers? Or will Marina learn that a little disorder can lead to a lot of happiness? ●●

The Lion NELSON DEMILLE

Now in paperback, Nelson DeMille’s eagerly anticipated sequel to The Lion’s Game.

John Corey, former NYPD homicide detective and now a special agent for the Anti-Terrorist Task Force, is back. Unfortunately for Corey, so is Asad Khalil, the notorious Libyan terrorist otherwise known as “The Lion.” When last we heard from him, Khalil had claimed to be defecting to the U.S. only to unleash the most horrific reign of terror ever to occur on American soil. While Corey and his partner, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, pursued him across the country, Khalil methodically eliminated his victims one by one—then disappeared without a trace. Now, years later, Khalil has returned to America to make good on his threats and take care of unfinished business. “The Lion” is a killing machine once again loose in America with a mission of revenge, and John Corey will stop at nothing to achieve his own goal—to find and kill Khalil. ●●

Star Island CARL HIAASEN

The newest bestseller from Carl Hiaasen, now in trade paperback!

Meet 22-year-old Cherry Pye (née Cheryl Bunterman), a pop star since she was 14—and about to attempt a comeback from her latest drug-and-alcohol disaster. Now meet Cherry’s “undercover stunt double,” Ann DeLusia. Ann portrays Cherry whenever the singer is too “indisposed”—meaning wasted—to go out in public. And it is Ann-mistaken-for-Cherry who is kidnapped from a South Beach hotel by obsessed paparazzo Bang Abbott. Now the challenge for Cherry’s handlers is to rescue Ann while keeping her existence a secret from Cherry’s public. The situation is more complicated than they know. For Ann has had a bewitching encounter with Skink—the unhinged former governor of Florida—and now he’s heading for Miami to find her. Will Skink track down Ann DeLusia before Cherry’s motley posse does? Will Cherry sober up in time to lip-synch her way through her concert tour? All will be revealed in this hilarious spin on life in the celebrity fast lane. ●●

Off the Chain CANDICE DOW

In Candice Dow’s fast-paced dramatic tale, a woman becomes an escort after her dream job is crushed.

London Reed’s dream of becoming a veterinarian is dashed when she isn’t accepted into veterinary school. Instead, she starts a dog walking service, but her high-powered mother thinks the job is beneath her and gets London a job working for the sexy William Thorne, a senior investment banker with a multi-million dollar portfolio. Several months later, budget cuts force Thorne to fire London, but not before making her an offer she can’t refuse: have sex with him for money. One date suddenly turns into an ongoing affair, and Thorne lets London in on a little secret—he’s been running an escort service for over 15 years and claims it makes so much money he’s become addicted. London soon finds herself enjoying the life of a high-priced call girl, but when Thorne’s wife becomes terminally ill, London takes over the business. It couldn’t be more successful—until an unexpected magazine article surfaces, forcing London to make a painful decision: expose her clients or go to jail. ●●

The Quiet Room A Journey Out of the Torment of Madness LORI SCHILLER AND AMANDA BENNETT, WITH A NEW AFTERWORD BY LORI SCHILLER

Moving, harrowing, and ultimately uplifting, this acclaimed testimony to the ravages of mental illness is being reissued with a brand new cover and a new afterword by the author.

At 17, Lori Schiller was the perfect child, the only daughter of an affluent, close-knit family. Six years later she made her first suicide attempt, then wandered the streets of New York City dressed in ragged clothes and hearing tormenting voices crying out in her mind—she had entered the horrifying world of full-blown schizophrenia. Thus began an ordeal of hospitalizations, halfway houses, relapses, further suicide attempts, and constant, withering despair. But with perseverance and courage, she survived. Now, in this personal account, she explains how she recovered, taking readers not only into her own shattered world, but drawing on the words of the doctors who treated her and the family members who suffered with her. In this new edition, Schiller recounts the dramatic years following the original publication—a period involving addiction, relapse, and ultimately, love and recovery. ●●

The Memoir Project A Thoroughly Non-Standardized Text for Writing—And Life MARION ROACH SMITH

The essential, eccentric guidebook for anyone wanting to write a memoir, from author and teacher Marion Roach Smith.

A recent study revealed that the number one thing Baby Boomers want to do in retirement is write a book—about themselves. Writing a memoir, whether it’s a book, blog, or simply a letter to a child, is inherently understood to be the single greatest portal to self-examination. THE MEMOIR PROJECT is a disarmingly frank, wildly fun distillation of all the unsentimental lessons that work for anyone who wants to write. Tired topics like writing exercises, morning pages, and “writers block” are replaced with quirky, provocative tactics that teach readers to write with purpose. Finally, the advice that students have sought from Marion’s class for the last 13 years is available in this uniquely inspiring guide. Originally self-published (as Writing What You Know: Realia) and popular with writers and teachers alike, this is “the little book that could,” updated and enriched to provide an even more comprehensive guide. ●●

Marion Roach Smith is the ideal author for this ever-growing audience, having taught a sold-out memoir writing class, “Write What You Know,” at the Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy, New York, since 1998. The class is being translated into webinar format to reach even more students. THE MEMOIR PROJECT will be crosspromoted with course registration and on the author’s popular writing blog in 2011. With more and more Baby Boomers reaching retirement every year, THE MEMOIR PROJECT is perfect for audiences who have contributed to the continued success of Steven Pressfield’s The War of Art (GCP, 4/03). A former staff member of the New York Times, Smith has written for New York Times Magazine, Martha Stewart Living, Vogue, and Good Housekeeping, among other publications, and been a commentator on NPR’s All Things Considered and is heard daily on Martha Stewart Living Radio. She is also the author of two memoirs, The Roots of Desire (Bloomsbury, 6/05) and Another Name for Madness (Pocket Books, 11/86).

The Postcard Killers JAMES PATTERSON & LIZA MARKLUND

James Patterson teams up with #1 European bestseller Liza Marklund for the scariest vacation thriller ever—now in paperback for the first time.

NYPD detective Jacob Kanon is on a tour of Europe’s most gorgeous cities. But the sights aren’t what draw him—he sees each museum, each cathedral, and each café through the eyes of his daughter’s killer. Kanon’s daughter, Kimmy, and her boyfriend were murdered while on vacation in Rome. Since then, young couples in Paris, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, and Stockholm have been found dead. Little connects the murders, other than a postcard to the local newspaper that precedes each new victim. Now, Kanon teams up with Swedish reporter Dessie Larsson, who has just received a postcard in Stockholm—and they think they know where the next victims will be. With relentless logic and unstoppable action, THE POSTCARD KILLERS may be James Patterson’s most vivid and compelling thriller yet. ●●

Paris to Die For MAXINE KENNETH

Before Jackie Bouvier married John F. Kennedy, she was the CIA’s newest, most stylish field operative in this imaginative novel.

James Bond meets Charade in this glamorous spy novel about Jackie Kennedy’s fictitious adventures as an unofficial CIA agent in Paris in 1951, when she was 21-year-old Jacqueline Lee Bouvier. It is inspired by an authentic letter in the John F. Kennedy Library written by Jacqueline stating that she is going to work for the CIA. Imagine what might have happened when she started her new job, escaping one hair-raising predicament after another with her quick intelligence, equestrian skills, and Chanel No. 5 atomizer as a weapon. Plunged into a world of intrigue and international espionage, this pampered debutante is soon charging from one deathdefying exploit to the next, all executed with brainy, sophisticated charm. Romance is also in the air, but her fellow agent may not be quite what he seems. ●●

Some may know her as hot, gutsy, gun-totin’ Foxy Brown, Coffy, and Jackie Brown. Others may know her from her role as Kit Porter on The L Word.

And in words sure to inspire many, she tells the story of being a cancer survivor. From her disappointments to her triumphs, this bad, beautiful woman holds nothing back. With FOXY, she imparts life lessons—and touches readers’ hearts. ●●

Set amidst the lush pine forests and rich savannahs of Florida’s Northern Panhandle, this is the story of one woman whose existence until now has seemed fairly normal. She is 30-something, married, and goes about her daily routine as a writer.

She awakes on the summer solstice and, prodded by her own discontent and one ghost’s righteous need for truth, commences upon a 24-hour journey of self-discovery.

The Recessionistas ALEXANDRA LEBENTHAL

Now in paperback, Alexandra Lebenthal’s “smart, sassy novel that peers into a world of wealth and privilege turned on its crazy head” (William Cohan, author of House of Cards).

It’s the day after Labor Day, 2008, and the elite universe of New York’s Upper East Side is about to collapse right along with the economy. Socialite Grigsby Somerset is barely aware of the seismic changes taking place—and has no idea her investment banker husband, Blake, is entering into a devil’s bargain with hedge fund owner John Cutter. But as Grigsby’s fairy-tale life starts to unravel, it is too much for her to be asked to turn on a dime and not spend one! Renee Parker is the street-smart executive assistant to John Cutter, and she’s convinced that something is amiss with her new boss. Together with her friend Sasha Silver, CEO of Silver Partners, she soon discovers that John’s fund is in danger of blowing up, and that he’s concocted a risky scheme with Blake Somerset to redeem himself. Penned by a financial and social insider, THE RECESSIONISTAS captures what happens when economic decline spells ruin for Manhattan’s pampered elite. ●●

THE RECESSIONISTAS won advance praise from Buzz Bissinger and Mark Seal, contributing editors to Vanity Fair; Jill Kargman, author of The Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund; and many others. In the bestselling tradition of Candace Bushnell and Plum Sykes, THE RECESSIONISTAS reveals how New York City socialites are forced to deal with economic collapse, written by one of Manhattan’s elite. Alexandra Lebenthal is from one of the most prominent families in the financial industry, having run an investment firm since her early 30s. She is also an active member of New York high society and the perfect insider to write this novel. Invited by David Patrick Columbia to blog for his popular New York Social Diary website, Lebenthal has produced a number of provocative pieces that chronicle how the (composite) lives of well-established men and women are impacted by today’s economic turbulence. Her novel was inspired by these highly popular pieces. Hardcover ISBN: 978-0-446-56367-3, 8/10

If I Bring You Roses MARISEL VERA

From the sunny shores of 1940s Puerto Rico to the snowy streets of 1950s Chicago, two young lovers wrestle with their hasty marriage in this lyrical debut novel.

Felicidad works in her aunt’s island bakery, serving the town’s busybodies and dreaming of the family she hasn’t seen in nearly a decade, especially of her mother who took to the roof of their home in a frenzy of grief and madness. The day Anibal enters the bakery is the day Felicidad dares to believe the new life she’s been imagining could become a reality. Soon the two are married and Felicidad is keeping house in Anibal’s Chicago apartment, but unprepared for the reality of marriage, Anibal takes up with a woman who is everything Felicidad is not: independent, reckless, promiscuous, demanding. Alone again, Felicidad retreats to the dream life that had sustained her back home. Finally reaching a breaking point, Felicidad decides the moment has come to be reborn in America. How she finds her voice—and Anibal learns to hear her—is at the heart of this passionate novel. ●●

Marisel Vera is a two-time winner of the Willow Review literary magazine’s fiction prize for her short stories “The Liberation of Carmela Lopez” (2000) and “Shoes for Cuba” (2003). Vera’s sensual style and subtle use of magical realism in her story will appeal to the same readers who love Cristina García, Gabriel García Márquez, and Isabel Allende. The author draws from her own parents’ immigration from Puerto Rico to Chicago in creating this breathtaking story. IF I BRING YOU ROSES contains a bound-in reading group guide. Additionally, a Spanish-language edition of the guide will be available online.

Advance praise for IF I BRING YOU ROSES: “A richly told tale of obsessive love…deeply sensual and mysterious.”

Brain Surgeon A Doctor’s Inspiring Encounters with Mortality and Miracles KEITH BLACK, MD, WITH ARNOLD MANN Foreword by forest whitaker

“A rare, behind-the-curtain look at one of the most pre-eminent neurosurgeons in the world…. He is the doctor people find when all the other doctors have given up.” —Dr. Sanjay Gupta

Welcome to tiger country: the treacherous territory where a single wrong move by a brain surgeon can devastate— or end—a patient’s life. This is the terrain world-renowned neurosurgeon Keith Black, MD, enters every day to produce virtual medical miracles. Dr. Black invites readers to shadow his journeys into the brain as he battles some of the deadliest tumors known to medical science. Along the way, he shares his unique insights about the inner workings of the brain, his unwavering optimism for the future of medicine, and the extraordinary stories of his patients—from ministers and rock stars to wealthy entrepreneurs and uninsured students—whom he celebrates as the real heroes. Ultimately, BRAIN SURGEON is an inspiring story of the struggle to overcome odds—whether as a man, a doctor, or a patient. ●● ●●

Jantsen’s Gift A True Story of Grief, Rescue, and Grace PAM COPE WITH AIMEE MOLLOY

“A wonderful story of a woman whose personal tragedy gave birth to a gift and how she fulfilled that legacy to make the world a better place.” —Publishers Weekly

After the death of her 15-year-old son Jantsen, Pam Cope, a homemaker and former hair dresser, made the courageous choice to throw aside all the trappings of her modern American fairy tale—the big house; the sheltered life in a small town; the meaningless search for perfect highlights—and discovered, instead, an amazing second chapter of her life—and her true purpose: to use her pain to change the world. Her mission began in the streets of Saigon, where, with money from Jantsen’s memorial fund, she financed the rescue of 15 children who had been abandoned and forced to beg and live on the streets. From there, she traveled to Cambodia, where she plunged herself into the world of international adoptions. Finally, Pam found her true calling in Ghana, West Africa, where she met a special child named Mark, a six-year-old slave, who changed her life for good. Today, she is the mother of three adopted children, two from Vietnam, and the co-founder of “Touch A Life,” dedicated to saving at-risk and exploited children in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Ghana. A deeply moving account of loss and recovery, Pam Cope’s story is an inspirational gift to anyone who has ever questioned their purpose or has dreamed about making a difference in the world. 978-0-446-19970-4 • $13.99 ($15.50 in Canada) Memoir • 5 ¼ x 8 • 320 pgs • Publishing background: GCP hardcover • Territories: World

Max Lucado, pastor and bestselling author, offered high praise of JANTSEN’S GIFT, saying: “Pam Cope holds the mirror up, challenging us to see what our lives are reflecting. Her story points out our choice: to spend our days keeping up with our own little lives or to invest ourselves in making a difference in our own world.” This edition will include a bound-in reading group guide and an afterword by the author. Pam Cope is the founder of Touch A Life Foundation. Her story has been featured on Oprah and in the New York Times. Her travels and activities are chronicled on TouchaLifeKids.blogspot.com. With its exotic setting and central message of hope and healing, JANTSEN’S GIFT appeals to the same audience that embraced the New York Times bestsellers Three Cups of Tea (Viking, 3/06) and Kabul Beauty School (Random House, 1/07). Aimee Molloy is a freelance journalist and co-author with Senator John Kerry and Teresa Heinz Kerry of This Moment on Earth (Public Affairs, 3/07). Her work has appeared in the New York Times Magazine and Salon.com, among other publications.
