Fabric designer and pattern-maker, Jeni Baker, takes the math out of constructing these blocks by providing a helpful cutting menu to create any size HST you may ever need using each of her three piecing methods. She then builds on the design principles of color and scale, progressing you through 12 beautiful step-by-step HST projects and a gallery of 60 versatile patchwork HST blocks. Each chapter features a fun Workshop that walks you through color theory, scrap storage, quilt resizing and more! Ready to get started?

London in Bloom 

The half-square triangle—or ‘HST’ for short—is a piecing basic for quilters. It’s such a simple block, but one with more design possibilities than you might realize. Fabric designer and pattern-maker, Jeni Baker, takes the math out of constructing these blocks by providing a helpful cutting menu to create any size HST you may ever need using each of her three piecing methods. She then builds on the design principles of color and scale, progressing you through 12 beautiful step-by-step HST projects and a gallery of 60 versatile patchwork HST blocks. Each chapter features a fun Workshop that walks you through color theory, scrap storage, quilt resizing and more! Ready to get started? Grab your colored pencils and have fun choosing your own colors and fabrics because Jeni gives you a coloring book page for each of the 12 patterns she has designed.

ISBN 978-1-4197-4299-6 US $25.00

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 fi t, and learning instead who we really are.

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.

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 of the time. Through interviews with Walker, Oprah Winfrey, Quincy Jones, and others, as well as archival research, Tillet studies Walker’s life and the origins of her subjects, including violence, sexuality, gender, and politics. The Color Purple continues to resonate with Tillet—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.

Salamishah Tillet is a scholar, cultural critic, and activist. A professor at Rutgers University-Newark, she is a regular contributor to the New York Times. She lives in New Jersey.

ince its publication nearly 70 years ago, George Orwell’s 1984 has

been regarded as one of the most influential novels of the modern

age. Politicians have testified to its influence on their intellectual identities, rock musicians have made records about it, TV viewers watch a reality show named after it, and a White House spokesperson tells of “alternative facts.” The world we live in is often described as an Orwellian one, awash in inescapable surveillance and invasions of privacy. On Nineteen Eighty-Four dives deep into Orwell’s life to chart his earlier writings and key moments in his youth, such as his years at a boarding school, where the strict and charismatic headmaster shaped the idea of Big Brother. Taylor tells the story of the writing of the book, taking readers to the

Scottish island of Jura, where Orwell, newly famous thanks to Animal Farm but coping with personal tragedy and rapidly declining health, struggled to finish 1984. Published during the cold war—a term Orwell coined—Taylor elucidates the environmental influences on the book. Then he examines 1984’s post-publication life, including its role as a tool to understand our language, politics, and government. In a current climate where truth, surveillance, censorship, and critical thinking are contentious, Orwell’s work is necessary. Written with resonant and reflective analysis, On Nineteen Eighty-Four is both brilliant and remarkably timely. D. J. Taylor is a British critic, novelist, and biographer. Taylor contributes to many newspapers including the Guardian and the Daily Telegraph. Taylor resides in Norwich, England.

elations between China and the United States will be a central foreign policy issue facing the next American presidential

candidates, and in the sphere of future global politics no region will be as hotly contested as the Asia-Pacific. The territory disputes are centered on the remote reefs and islands of the South China Sea where China has created military bases, thereby gaining control over

a high-traffic trade route. If China does get away with seizing and militarizing waters here, what will it do elsewhere in the world? In Asian Waters, award-winning journalist Humphrey Hawksley breaks down the politics that he has followed throughout this volatile region for years, covering everything from the Sino-US trade war; to added Chinese hostility against Taiwan; to increased US, British, and French military presence in the South China Sea. With vivid storytelling, concise history, and pointed arguments, Asian Waters is a must-read for anyone interested in global politics..

it Starts is a new series of portable writing-prompt books, each one devoted to a single aspect of the craft of writing (characters, dialogue, action, memoir, sci-fi fantasy, and humor). Each book begins with an informative

and example-rich essay by a published writer, followed by roughly 40 prompts and space to write. Sharpen your observation of people and capture them with well-chosen details in Writing Character. Practice mimicking speech patterns and creating believable conversations in Writing Dialogue. Propel your stories forward with action-packed prose in Writing Action and find your comedic voice in Writing Humor. For seasoned and novice writers alike, these books are manageable in size, apply to all genres and styles of writing, and offer both inspiration and structure for a creative practice. New this season are Writing Memoir (with a foreword by New York Times bestselling author Julie Lythcott-Haims) and Writing Sci-Fi and Fantasy (spearheaded by speculative fiction novelist Dorothy Hearst). Whether you want to tap into the truth of your own stories or invent fantastic new worlds, these books offer both inspiration and structure for

your practice.
