hotographer and filmmaker Michael Grecco was in the thick of things, documenting the club scene in

places like Boston and New York as punk rock morphed into the post punk and new wave movements that

dominated from the late ’70s to the early ’90s. From Sex Pistols to Blondie, Talking Heads, Human Sexual Response, Elvis Costello, Joan Jett, The Ramones, and many others, Grecco captured in black and white and color the raw energy, sweat, and antics that characterized the alternative music of the time. In addition to concert photography, he shot album covers and promotional pieces that round out his impressively extensive photo collection. The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles has offered Grecco an exhibition of his photographs to coincide with publication. Michael Grecco is an award-winning commercial photographer and film director noted for his iconic celebrity portraits, innovative magazine covers, editorial images, and advertising spreads for NBC/Universal, GE, Pfizer, HBO, Kodak, ABC, IBM, Yahoo!, ESPN, WIRED, TIME, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, Premier, and more.

nformed and energized by a lifetime of painting, drawing, and making images with cameras, David Hockney, in collaboration with

art critic Martin Gayford, explores how and why pictures have been made across the millennia. Juxtaposing a rich variety of images—a still from a Disney cartoon with a Japanese woodblock print by Hiroshige, a scene from an Eisenstein film with a Velazquez painting—the authors cross the normal boundaries between high culture and popular entertainment, and argue that film, photography, painting, and drawing are deeply interconnected.

more than what you drink from: these objects are to be reflected upon, to be touched and cherished. As mass manufacture became widespread in the post-war period, fascinating cross-cultural exchanges began to take place between Japan and the West. And in recent years, a new generation of designers has taken Japanese creativity into entirely new territory, reconceptualizing the very meaning of design. Showcasing over 80 designers, hundreds of objects, and contributions from both Japanese and Western designers inspired by Japan, this volume will remain the definitive work on the subject for many years to come. Naomi Pollock is an American architect who lives in Tokyo, where she writes about Japanese design. Her work has appeared in numerous publications, including Dwell, Wallpaper*, and Architectural Record, for whom she is the special international correspondent.

lice Walker made history in 1982 when she became the first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award for The Color Purple. Published in the Reagan era amid a

severe backlash to civil rights, the Jazz Age novel tells the story of racial and gender inequality

through the life of a 14-year-old girl from Georgia who is haunted by domestic and sexual violence. Prominent academic and activist Salamishah Tillet combines cultural criticism, history, and memoir to explore Walker’s epistolary novel and shows how it has influenced and been informed by the zeitgeist. The Color Purple received both praise and criticism upon publication, and the conversation it sparked around race and gender still continues today. It has been adapted for an Oscar-nominated film and a hit Broadway musical. Through archival research and interviews with Walker, Oprah Winfrey, and Quincy Jones (among others), Tillet studies Walker’s life and how themes of violence emerged in her earlier work. Reading The Color Purple at age 15 was a groundbreaking experience for Tillet. It continues to resonate with her—as a sexual violence survivor, as a teacher of the novel, and as an accomplished academic. Provocative and personal, In Search of The Color Purple is a bold work from an important public intellectual, and captures Alice Walker’s seminal role in rethinking sexuality, intersectional feminism, and racial and gender politics. Salamishah Tillet is a scholar, cultural critic, and activist. A professor at Rutgers University–Newark and previously a professor of English and Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, she is a regular contributor to Elle and the New York Times. With her sister, she cofounded A Long Walk Home, a Chicago-based national nonprofit that uses art to empower young people to end violence against girls and women. She lives in New Jersey.

ow do you stop a rogue president? How do you protect our country from a man who lies, who obstructs justice, and who seeks to cheat with foreign powers to get reelected? Our

constitution offers one remedy: impeachment. Thanks to the courageous actions of public servants who came forward to report his abuses of power, on December 18, 2019, President Donald J. Trump became just the third president in US history to be impeached by the House of Representatives In Endgame, Congressman Eric Swalwell offers his personal account of his path to office and how he and his colleagues resisted, investigated, and impeached a corrupt president. After the

shock of the 2016 election and Trump’s inauguration (including the luncheon afterward), Swalwell, as a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Judiciary Committee, quickly became involved in pushing back against Trump’s outrageous actions as he sought to get to the bottom of foreign interference in our elections. But Republicans were in control of the investigation, and it became clear that taking back the House was essential. Swalwell takes readers inside Congress and through the impeachment process, from Trump’s disgraceful phone call with the Ukrainian president, just one day after Robert Mueller testified to Congress, to caucus meetings and conversations with the Speaker to the bombshell public hearings and the historic vote, and then what followed next—the holding of the articles, the news of more possible witnesses, and the sham trial in the Senate. Endgame is fascinating, a gripping read by a unique witness to extraordinary events. Eric Swalwell grew up in California’s East Bay. After earning undergraduate and law degrees at the University of Maryland, he served as a prosecutor in the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office. Elected to Congress in 2012 to represent the East Bay, he is now in his fourth term and serves on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Judiciary Committee.

t age 36, while serving on a jury, author Molly Wizenberg found herself drawn to a female attorney she hardly knew. Married to a man for nearly a decade and mother to a toddler,

Wizenberg tried to return to her life as she knew it, but something inside her had changed irredeemably. Instead, she would discover that the trajectory of our lives is rarely as smooth or as logical as we’d like to believe. Like many of us, Wizenberg had long understood sexual orientation as a stable part of ourselves: we’re “born this way.” Suddenly she realized that her story was more complicated. Who was she, she wondered, if something at her very core could change so radically? The Fixed Stars is a taut, electrifying memoir exploring timely and timeless questions about desire, identity, and the limits and possibilities of family. In honest and searing prose, Wizenberg forges a new path: through the murk of separation and divorce, coming out to family and friends, learning to co-parent a young child, and realizing a new vision of love. The result is a frank and moving story about letting go of rigid definitions and ideals that no longer fit, and learning instead who we really are. Molly Wizenberg is the author of two bestselling books, A Homemade Life and Delancey, and the James Beard Award– winning blog Orangette. She has written for the Washington Post, the Guardian, Saveur, and Bon Appétit, and she also cohosts the podcast Spilled Milk. With chef Brandon Pettit, Wizenberg cofounded the award-winning Seattle restaurants Delancey and Essex.

n 1951 in Sydney, Australia, a fourteen-year-old boy named James Harrison was near death when he received a transfusion of blood that saved his life. A few years later, and half a world away, a shy

young doctor at Columbia University realized he was more comfortable in the lab than in the examination room. Neither could have imagined how their paths would cross, or how they would change the world. In Good Blood, bestselling writer Julian Guthrie tells the gripping tale of the race to cure a horrible affliction known as Rh disease that stalked families and caused a mother’s immune system to attack her own unborn child. The story is anchored by two very different men on two continents: Dr. John

Gorman in New York, who would land on a brilliant yet contrarian idea, and the unassuming Australian whose almost magical blood—and his unyielding devotion to donating it—would save millions of lives. Good Blood takes us from Australia to America, from research laboratories to hospitals, and even into Sing Sing prison, where experimental blood trials were held. It is a tale of discovery and invention, the progress and pitfalls of medicine, and the everyday heroics that fundamentally changed the health of women and babies. Julian Guthrie is a journalist and author based in the San Francisco Bay Area. She spent 20 years at the San Francisco Chronicle, where her writing was nominated multiple times for the Pulitzer Prize. She is the author of four previous books, including the bestsellers The Billionaire and the Mechanic, and her most recent, How to Make a Spaceship.

aised in what he affectionately calls “our little honesty cult,” Michael Leviton was ingrained with his parents’ core philosophy: You do not tell any lies; you do not withhold the truth; and you

speak your mind always, regardless of how offensive or hurtful your opinions may be. For young

Michael, this freedom to be yourself—despite being bullied and ostracized at school—felt liberating. By the time Leviton was 29 years old, he had told three (what most people would consider) lies in his entire life. But his parents’ enthusiasm for “just being honest” bordered on extreme. After Michael graduated high school and left home, truth telling—in job interviews, on dates, in social interactions—slowly lost its luster. When the only woman who ever appreciated his honesty brought this radical approach to truth into their relationship, Michael decided it was time to embrace the power of lying. To Be Honest is a quirky, tender, and wry story of a man discovering what it means and how it feels to lie in one’s daily life. Michael Leviton is a writer, musician, photographer, and storyteller. He is the host of the storytelling series and podcast The Tell. He has worked as a screenwriter and contributed music to television shows, including HBO’s Bored to Death.

mong the extensive writing available about the history of ancient Greece, there is precious little about the city-state of Thebes. At one point the most powerful city in ancient Greece,

Thebes has been long overshadowed by its better-known rivals, Athens and Sparta. In Thebes: The Forgotten City of Ancient Greece, acclaimed classicist and historian Paul Cartledge brings the city vividly to life and argues that it is central to our understanding of the ancient Greeks’ achievements— whether politically or culturally—and thus to the wider politico-cultural traditions of western Europe, the Americas, and indeed the world. From its role as an ancient political power, to its destruction at the hands of Alexander the Great as punishment for a failed revolt, to its eventual restoration by Alexander’s successor, Cartledge deftly chronicles the rise and fall of the ancient city. He recounts the history with deep clarity and mastery for the subject and makes clear both the differences and the interconnections between the Thebes of myth and the Thebes of history. Written in clear prose and illustrated with images in two color inserts, Thebes is a gripping read for students of ancient history and those looking to experience the real city behind the myths of Cadmus, Hercules, and Oedipus. Paul Cartledge is the A. G. Leventis Professor of Greek Culture Emeritus at the University of Cambridge, and a Fellow of Clare College. He has written and edited more than 20 books, many of which have been translated into foreign languages, including The Spartans, Alexander the Great, and Thermopylae, all published by The Overlook Press/Abrams Press, and most recently Democracy: A Life. He is an honorary citizen of modern Sparta and holds the Gold Cross of the Order of Honor awarded by the president of Greece.

ala Garncarz, daughter of a rabbi and the youngest of 11 children, was 16 in 1940 when she volunteered to take her sister’s place in a Nazi work camp. Over the next five years, she

endured seven camps and collected, at great risk to herself, a cache of more than 350 letters, postcards, photographs, and other documents sent to her and others during that time. Sala survived the war and moved to America, where, more than 50 years later, she and her family donated her remarkable collection of letters and documents to the New York Public Library, where it went on to earn wide attention. Through these letters that Sala managed to hide and keep safe, Letters to Sala tells the story of her experiences and those of others in the web of Nazi labor camps in occupied Europe, a less-documented and less-familiar aspect of the Holocaust. Adapted by award-winning playwright Arlene Hutton from the book Sala’s Gift by Ann Kirschner, Letters to Sala has been produced off-Broadway at The Barrow Group and with more than 100 productions. Arlene Hutton is best known as the author of the award-winning Nibroc Trilogy. Her plays have been produced at regional theaters and colleges around the country, at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, for FringeNYC, and at theaters in New York City and abroad.

fter the sudden death of his nuclear physicist father and the arrest of his mother during the Stalinist purge of Jewish doctors, young Leon Rozental—intellectually precocious and

possessing a disarming candor—is hiding from the NKVD in the secret rooms of the House on the

Embankment, a large building in Moscow where many Soviet officials and apparatchiks live and work. One day after following a passageway, Leon meets Koba, an old man whose apartment is protected by several guards. Koba is a high-ranking Soviet officer with troubling insight into the thoughts and machinations of Comrade Stalin. Through encounters between a naive boy and a paranoid tyrant, Robert Littell creates in Comrade Koba a nuanced portrayal of the Soviet dictator, showing his human side and his simultaneous total disregard for and ignorance of the suffering he inflicted on the Russian people. The charm and spontaneity of young Leon make him an irresistible character—and not unlike Holden Caulfield, whom he admits to identifying with—caught in the spider’s web of the story woven by this enigmatic old man. Robert Littell is the author of 19 highly acclaimed novels, many about the Cold War and the Soviet Union, including his masterwork, the New York Times bestseller The Company. An American born in Brooklyn, he now lives in France.

s long as people could remember, the stave church’s bells had rung over the isolated village of Butangen, Norway. Cast in memory of conjoined twins, the bells are said to ring on their

own in times of danger. In 1879, young pastor Kai Schweigaard moves to the village, where young

Astrid Hekne yearns for a modern life. She sees a way out on the arm of the new pastor, who needs a tie to the community to cull favor for his plan for the old stave church, with its pagan deity effigies and supernatural bells. When the pastor makes a deal that brings an outsider, a sophisticated German architect, into their world, the village and Astrid are caught between past and future, as dark forces come into play.

n late-1980s rural Ohio, bright but mostly friendless Barry Nadler begins his freshman year of high school with the goal of going unnoticed as much as possible. But his world is upended by the arrival

of Gurbaksh, Gary for short, a Sikh teenager who moves to his small town and instantly befriends Barry and, in Gatsby-esque fashion, pulls him into a series of increasingly unlikely adventures. As their friendship deepens, Barry’s world begins to unravel, and his classmates and neighbors react to the presence of a family so different from theirs. Through darkly comic and bitingly intelligent asides and wry observations, Barry reveals how the seeds of xenophobia and racism find fertile soil in this insular community, and in an easy, graceless, unintentional slide, tragedy unfolds. How I Learned to Hate in Ohio shines an uncomfortable light on the roots of white middle-

American discontent and the beginnings of the current cultural war. It is at once bracingly funny, dark, and surprisingly moving, an undeniably resonant debut novel for our divided world. David Stuart MacLean is a winner of the PEN Emerging Writer Award for Nonfiction and author of the award-winning memoir The Answer to the Riddle Is Me. His work has appeared in the New York Times, Ploughshares, Guernica, and on This American Life. He has taught creative writing at the University of Chicago, Columbia College, and the School of the Art Institute; is co-founder of the Poison Pen Reading Series in Houston; and was a Fulbright Scholar to India. Raised in central Ohio, he now lives in Chicago. How I Learned to Hate in Ohio is his debut novel.

religion and surveillance run amok. Heroine Rory Miller and her best friend, Fee, are on the run after a bomb explodes at their elite Christian private school in their triple-gated California community during their American Chastity Ball, where girls in white gowns pledge to their fathers that they will remain

virgins until marriage. As the girls struggle to survive while following their own attempted capture on social media and cable news—crowdsourced by Christian zealots and bounty hunters—Rory blogs their story in real time, determined to leave behind a record in their own words in case they don’t make it out alive. In This Little Light, bestselling author Lori Lansens weaves together the pressing issues of our time—women’s rights, income disparity, religion and politics, immigration—and diffuses them through the authentic voice of a 16-year-old navigating a frightening reality. The result is an intense, urgent, and enthralling read about an all-too-believable near future—and the world we already live in.

Gothic imagination in literature. The three books in the series—Titus Groan, Gormeghast, and

A doomed lord, an emergent hero, and an array of bizarre creatures people this world, in which all events are predetermined by complex rituals, the origins of which are lost in time. In Titus Groan, Titus, the 77th earl and heir to Lord Sepulchrave, stands to inherit the miles of rambling stone and mortar that form Gormenghast Castle. As the story deepens in Gormenghast, Steerpike begins his treacherous ascent until, finally, in Titus Alone, Titus, at the edge of manhood, rebels against the domain of which he is both lord and prisoner.

eventeen-year-old Evie Beckham has always been too occupied with her love of math and frequent battles with anxiety to want to date. Besides, she’s always found the idea of kissing

to be kind of weird. But by senior year, thanks to therapy and her friends, she’s feeling braver than

before. Maybe even brave enough to enter the national math and physics competition or flirt back with the new boy. Meanwhile, Evie’s best friend, Caleb Covic, has always been a little in love with her. So he’s horrified when he is forced to witness Evie’s meet-cute with the new guy. Desperate, Caleb uses an online forum to capture Evie’s interest—and it goes a little too well. Now Evie wonders how she went from avoiding romance to having to choose between two—or is it three?—boys. Amy Noelle Parks is an associate professor at Michigan State University. When she’s not using One Direction lyrics as a writing prompt, she’s helping future teachers recover from the trauma of years of school mathematics. She lives in Michigan with her husband and two daughters.

hen Hazel Stanczak was born, an interdimensional rift opened up near her family’s home. Early on, her parents realized that if she went too far from home, the rift would become

volatile and drop things from other dimensions onto their front lawn—or it could swallow up their whole town—which prompted immediate government intervention. So Hazel has never left her small Pennsylvania town, and the government agents make sure it stays that way. That’s mostly fine with Hazel, who struggles with anxiety. On her 16th birthday, the rift spins completely out of control even though she’s still nearby. Then Hazel comes face-to-face with a surprise: a second Hazel. Then another. And another. Each one of the Hazels is slightly different, but they’re all obviously and

A new imprint of ABRAMS

â–² From Goodnight, Little Bunny


LETTER FROM THE EDITORS

Welcome to our first season of books, from the team at Magic Cat. We are a new independent children’s publishing company, based in London and founded by award-winning publishers Rachel Williams and Jenny Broom. As bookmakers, we make family-friendly non-fiction and gift books, for children from pre-school through middle grade, that speak to our passion for pioneering design and beautiful illustration. As moms, we believe that books are the best way to put inspiring ideas in the hands and hearts of our children, and that reading with your child is the best way to help them develop intellectually, socially, and emotionally. Some of our books explain and explore the world around you; others help you escape altogether and fire your imagination‡.‡.‡.‡in both cases, we know that the stories we are told in childhood shape the people we grow up to be. Thank you for making us part of that journey. and

Rachel Williams and Jenny Broom have worked together for nearly 10 years. During this time, the pair have pioneered a renaissance in children’s nonfiction and spawned industry-wide trends for sophisticated illustration styles and innovative formats. Founding Big Picture Press in 2012 (an imprint of Candlewick Press), they launched the imprint with the game-changing children’s title Maps, followed by Animalium and Atlas of Adventures in 2013. Joining Quarto in the same year to found another new children’s imprint, the pair launched Wide Eyed Editions in the US in 2015 with the best-selling title The 50 States before taking the reins of Frances Lincoln Children’s Books. Several more successes followed, including the record-breaking biography series Little People Big Dreams, as well as stand-alone picture book hits such as the award-winning The Bear and the Piano, Grandad Mandela, and John Lennon’s Imagine. Now embarking on a new chapter, the pair have founded independent publishing house Magic Cat, which will build on previous successes and set new boundaries for children’s books with their groundbreaking concepts and inimitable design flair.

resenting an influential body of work that was created after the artist viewed rhapsodic whales in the Pacific Ocean and the

San Francisco Bay in the 1970s, the abstracted landscapes in Mary Lovelace O’Neal: Whales, A Romance . . . explode in expressionist physicality. As professor emerita of the University of California–Berkeley’s

Art Studio Department—a first for an African American woman at the time—Lovelace O’Neal has become renowned as an important educator and painter of activist abstractions that have inspired countless artists in the Bay Area, nationally, and globally. Constantly experimenting with form, color, and figuration to engage in cultural and artistic conversations on behalf of social justice, Lovelace O’Neal presents an oeuvre that continuously subverts the expectations imposed on black artists, as well as defines the cultural power of minimalism and abstract expressionism.

Trump Steaks and the Ego sign from the Ego Lounge at the Taj Mahal. The scope of the project is as vast as Donald Trump’s reach has been, showing that long before he became president, Donald Trump wrapped himself around America and called it his. Born on August 15, 1950, in New York, the American artist Andres Serrano first came to public attention with his controversial work Piss Christ (1987), depicting a crucifix submerged in the artist’s urine. Other notorious projects include photographs of recently deceased bodies, and a series of portraits of Ku Klux Klan members. In the late ’80s and early ’90s his works were a flashpoint in what became known as the “culture wars,” inspiring a national debate on freedom of expression and the public funding of controversial art in America.

portrayal of autumn in Western art.

During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries it was fashionable for wealthy young men to go on the so-called ‘Grand Tour’, during which they travelled around Europe studying relics. A favourite trip was to Rome in October to see the ancient ruins, following in the footsteps of seventeenthcentury artists such as the French landscape painter Claude Lorrain. His gold-lit paintings of classical antiquities were studied in their original settings and season.

Kirsteen McSwein is assistant

Back in England, autumn scenery commanded a new appreciation and almost a hundred years later, autumn landscapes still reigned supreme. In 1833, the great British painter of the seasons John Constable said, ‘Autumn only is called the painter’s season, from the great richness of the colours of the dead and decaying foliage, and the peculiar tone and beauty of the skies.’

ayoi Kusama is arguably Japan’s most famous living artist. Her originality, innovation, and powerful desire to communicate have

propelled her through a career that has spanned six decades. During this time, Kusama has explored painting, printmaking, photography, collage, film and video, performance and installation, and product design. From the late 1950s to the early 1970s Kusama lived in New York and

was at the forefront of many artistic innovations in the city. Returning to Japan in her 40s, she rebuilt her career, waiting years for the international recognition she has recently achieved. In her ninth decade her imagination remains richly creative and she continues to extend the range of her practice. Having accompanied the first major retrospective exhibition of the artist’s work to be staged in the UK, this lavishly illustrated book features

E XHIB ITION SCHE DULE Tate Modern, June 17–Sept 13, 2020 agdalena Abakanowicz (1930–2017) was a Polish sculptor and fiber artist, most notable for her use

of textiles as a sculptural medium. In the 1960s and ’70s she wove sisal in intense colors to create towering, hanging pieces that radically expanded the field of sculpture

and installation art and catapulted the international fiber art movement. Known as Abakans, these “organic environments” carried many meanings and were often large in size, containing entanglements of ropes or dividing spaces. They were spaces to contemplate, to immerse oneself, to experience. Lavishly illustrated, this beautiful book explores the unique nature of these works and their impact as environmental sculpture. Considering the relationships between the Abakans and their forest-like atmosphere,

and other key works, it reveals the artist’s broad interest in natural phenomena and folk-art traditions from different cultural backgrounds, and the mastery and determination of a woman artist who, despite the restrictions of living in Poland under an oppressive communist regime, established a career as an international artist. Ann Coxon is curator of displays and international art at Tate Modern. Mary Jane Jacob is an independent curator.

ome heavy reading on the ecological and climate emergency leads Cédric, a 40-something painter living

in Paris, to question his life choices. In a state of vulnerability,

racked with eco-anxiety, he is contacted by the spirit of writer, environmentalist, and Walden author Henry David Thoreau. As their Socratic dialogue continues, Cédric notices striking parallels between the suffocating commercialism of mid-19th-century America and the unsustainable, alienating, tech-driven consumerism of today. Both societies are shaped by a single priority—economic growth—that squanders the earth’s natural resources and separates us from nature. Inspired by Thoreau’s return to nature, Cédric begins dream-

orty-something Louise is married to Peter, with whom she has four children. They live in a big

house, and on paper everything looks fantastic. But Louise has a secret that she barely dares to admit to herself: a burning desire for women. When I Came Out is the story of a woman who has met society’s expectations throughout her life but finally realizes that she has not been true to herself. From

first-time creator Anne Mette Kærulf Lorentzen, this bold and elaborate piece of autobiographical work addresses personal anxieties about coming-out later in life and documents her jump from a safe, well-established, heteronormative, middle-class life to living openly as a lesbian. With beautiful drawings using anthropomorphic animal characters, Anne Mette Kærulf Lorentzen tells her coming-out story with charming sensitivity and a loving humor. Anne Mette Kærulf Lorentzen is an architect and LGBTQ+ activist living in Denmark. She is part of the NGO Female Oxygen, which supports women in countries where LGBTQ+ rights are threatened.

mil Zátopek is arguably the greatest Olympic champion of all time. The Czech runner’s three gold medals at the 1952 Helsinki

Summer Olympics, for the 5,000 meter, 10,000 meter, and marathon, is an achievement that has never been matched. His success as a runner made him a national hero, but as a public figure, outspoken and unafraid to take a stand, he was equally impressive. Even before the Helsinki Games, Zátopek had scored a remarkable victory, successfully pressuring the communist regime to allow his colleague Stanislav Jungwirth, who until then had been excluded on political grounds, to compete. In Zátopek, Jan Novák and Jaromír 99 trace the extraordinary life and times of the great Olympian, from his first meeting with Dana, the love of his life, to the victories that
