Dear friends, Malcolm Gladwell. Need I say more? Few writers working today have had the tremendous cultural impact he has. And so it’s an understatement to say we’re thrilled to have Malcolm’s new book, DAVID AND GOLIATH, coming in October. What are the hidden rules that shape the balance between the weak and the mighty, the powerful and the dispossessed? Malcolm explores this question, and his discoveries will surprise, enchant, and enlighten us all. There are millions of copies of Malcolm’s books, including the modern classics THE TIPPING POINT, BLINK, and OUTLIERS, in print. They are taught in colleges around the world and vigorously discussed over conference room tables and dining room tables alike—often with dog-eared copies of the Back Bay trade paperback editions. This fall, we’re celebrating the 20th anniversary of our esteemed paperback imprint, led by Terry Adams, Vice President and Digital and Paperback publisher. The delights of the Back Bay list include INFINITE JEST, WHITE OLEANDER, and CASE HISTORIES along with ME TALK PRETTY ONE DAY and LONE SURVIVOR. Viva the paperback! No matter your preferred reading format, I hope this list holds great pleasures for you. Lovers of literary fiction will cheer the long-awaited return of Donna Tartt, with her brilliant novel THE GOLDFINCH, as well as the arrival of Hannah Kent, whose thrilling debut, BURIAL RITES, graces our cover. Blockbusters from James Patterson, Michael Connelly, and George Pelecanos; Robert Hilburn’s authoritative biography JOHNNY CASH; vegan chef extraordinaire Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s ISA DOES IT —every title on the list makes me proud to be Little, Brown’s publisher. I’m looking forward to working with all of you to bring these books to readers everywhere. Happy reading,

Reagan Arthur

NICHOLAS PURCELL

Burial Rites

Hannah Kent

is the co-founder and deputy editor of the Australian literary journal Kill Your Darlings, and is completing her PhD at Flinders University. BURIAL RITES is her first novel.

A brilliant literary debut, inspired by a true story: the final days of a young woman accused of murder in Iceland in 1829. Set against Iceland’s stark landscape, Hannah Kent brings to vivid life the story of Agnes, who, charged with the brutal murder of her former master, is sent to an isolated farm to await execution. Horrified at the prospect of housing a convicted murderer, the family at first avoids Agnes. Only Tóti, a priest Agnes has mysteriously chosen to be her spiritual guardian, seeks to understand her. But as Agnes’s death looms, the farmer’s wife and their daughters learn there is another side to the sensational story they’ve heard. Riveting and rich with lyricism, BURIAL RITES evokes a dramatic existence in a distant time and place, and asks the question, how can one woman hope to endure when her life depends upon the stories told by others? • Hannah Kent, a 27-year-old Australian writer, spent a year in Iceland, where she first heard the story of Agnes Magnúsdóttir. Kent became obsessed with Agnes—and describes BURIAL RITES as her effort to “exorcise Agnes from my subconscious.” • Hannah Kent’s debut novel made a splash by selling in one of the year’s most heated, global auctions, and the list of rights sold only continues to grow. • BURIAL RITES has already received glowing words of admiration from Pulitzer Prize-winner Geraldine Brooks, and quotes continue to pour in.

Excerpt from BURIAL RIGHTS: Sometimes, after talking to the Reverend, my mouth aches. My tongue feels so tired; it slumps in my mouth like a dead bird, all damp feathers, in between the stones of my teeth. What did I say to him? What did the others make of what I said? It doesn’t matter. No one could understand what it was like to know Natan. In those early visits it was as though we were building something sacred. We’d place words carefully together, piling them upon one another, leaving no spaces. We walked in the evenings upon the snow, and it squeaked under our tread. Once, when I slipped on the ice, I grasped his arm and he lost his balance. We fell together, laughing, and on the ground he pushed me back so that we gazed up at the hazard of stars above us. “Do you think that’s where we go when we die?” I asked. “I don’t believe in heaven,” Natan said. I was shocked. ‘How can you not believe in heaven?” “It’s a lie. Man has created God out of fear of dying.” “How can you say such a thing?” He turned his head, ice crystals caught in his hair. “Agnes. Don’t pretend you disagree. This is all there is and you know it. Life, here, in our veins. There is the snow, and the sky, and stars and the things they tell us, and that’s all. Everyone else—they’re blind. They don’t know if they’re living or dead.”

Grain Brain

David Perlmutter, MD,

is medical director of the Perlmutter Health Center and president of The Perlmutter Brain Foundation. He is the author of The Better Brain Book, Raise a Smarter Child by Kindergarten, and Power Up Your Brain. He lives in Naples, Florida.

The devastating truth about the effects of wheat, sugar, and carbs on the brain, with a 30-day plan to achieve optimum health. Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that’s been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more. Dr. Perlmutter explains what happens when the brain encounters common ingredients in your daily bread and fruit bowls, why your brain thrives on fat and cholesterol, and how you can spur the growth of new brain cells at any age. He offers an in-depth look at how we can take control of our “smart genes” through specific dietary choices and lifestyle habits, demonstrating how to remedy our most feared maladies without drugs. With a revolutionary 30-day plan, GRAIN BRAIN teaches us how we can reprogram our genetic destiny for the better. • Gluten is a hot-button topic and this is the first book to explain the connection between carbs and neurological disorders. • Dr. Perlmutter is a board-certified neurologist and a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition, and counts among his fans Dr. William Davis, Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Andrew Weil, and Dr. Mehmet Oz. • Dr. Perlmutter has extensive lecture and media experience. He has appeared on 20/20, Dr. Oz, Today, Good Morning America, CBS Early Show, Oprah, Fox News, CNN, and more. Excerpt from GRAIN BRAIN: I’m here to tell you that the fate of your brain is not in your genes. It’s not inevitable. It’s in the food you eat. Modern grains are a terrorist group that’s silently destroying your brain, and by “modern,” I don’t just mean refined white flours, pastas, and rices that have already been demonized by the anti-obesity folks; I’m also referring to whole wheat, whole grain, multigrain, 7-grain, live grain, stone ground, and so on. Even fruit can have far-reaching consequences that will not only wreak physical havoc on your brain, but accelerate your body’s aging process from the inside out. I’ll provide sound information and lifestyle changes that are based on evolutionary, modern scientific, and physiological perspectives to keep your brain healthy, vibrant, and sharp, while dramatically reducing your risk for debilitating brain disease. The latest research on how we can control the “master switches” in our DNA is so captivating that it will inspire the most exercise-averse fast food junkie. Included are practical how-to’s and a 30-day protocal with daily menus, recipes, and supplement recommendations. I’ll also explain how our most pernicious diseases can be remedied without drugs and offer cures that are right in our kitchens. GRAIN BRAIN proposes a whole new way of understanding the root cause of brain disease and offers a promising message of hope: brain disease is a choice— not a destiny. This is not just another diet book or generic how-to guide to all things preventive health. This is a game changer.

A powerful investigation into the chances for humanity’s future from the author of the bestseller The World Without Us. Praise for The World Without Us:

“Prodigious and impressive.” —JANET MASLIN, NEW YORK TIMES

“I don’t think I’ve read a better non-fiction book this year.” —LEV GROSSMAN, TIME

In his bestselling The World Without Us, Alan Weisman considered what Earth would look like with humanity gone. Behind his groundbreaking thought experiment was this question: Can humans be a part of a healed, restored planet? In his long-awaited follow-up, Weisman traveled to 21 countries to research the main obstacle to humanity’s future: the sheer number of us. Weighing religious, cultural, and socioeconomic factors against biological and ecological ones, COUNTDOWN shows us the devastating effects of our cumulative presence and suggests what may be our fastest, most acceptable and affordable way of returning to a pace the planet can sustain before it’s too late. Weisman shows again that he is one of the most provocative journalists at work today, asking the questions that truly matter most.

MARKETING

• The World Without Us (Thomas Dunne Books, 2007) spent 26 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and has sold nearly 350,000 copies.

Countdown

Alan Weisman

is an award-winning journalist whose reports have appeared in Harper’s, New York Times Magazine, The Atlantic, Vanity Fair, Mother Jones, Discover, and on NPR. He lives in western Massachusetts.

A month after the August, 1988 ceasefire finally ended the war with Iraq, Iran’s religious leaders, demographers, budget experts, and health minister gathered for a summit conference on population in the eastern city of Mashhad, one of holiest cities for the world’s Shi’ite Muslims, whose name means “place of martyrdom.” The weighty symbolism was clear. “The report of the demographers and budget officers was given to Khomeini,” Dr. Shamshiri recalls. The economic prognosis for their overpopulated nation must have been very dire, given the Ayatollah’s contempt for economists, whom he often referred to as donkeys. “After he heard it, he said, ‘Do what is necessary.’” It meant convincing 50 million Iranians of the opposite of what they’d heard for the past eight years: that their patriotic duty was to be forcibly fruitful and build Iran a 20-MILLION man army. Now, a new slogan was strung from banners, repeated on billboards, plastered on walls, broadcast on television, and preached at Friday prayers by the same mullahs who once enjoined them to produce a great Islamic generation by making more babies: One is good. Two is enough.

Praise for The World Without Us:

“Extraordinarily farsighted. A beautiful and passionate jeremiad against deforestation, climate change, and pollution.” —BOSTON GLOBE

“Weisman’s thought experiment is so intellectually fascinating, so oddly playful, that it escapes categorizing and clichés. It sucks us in with a vision of what is, what has been and what is yet to come.” —SALON

Little, Brown and Company 13


Praise for Winter’s Bone:

“Woodrell’s Old Testament prose and blunt vision have a chilly timelessness that suggests this novel will speak to readers as long as there are readers.” —DAVID BOWMAN, NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

The American master’s first novel since Winter’s Bone tells of a deadly dance hall fire and its impact over several generations. Alma DeGeer Dunahew, the mother of three young boys, works as the maid for a prominent citizen and his family in West Table, Missouri. Her husband is mostly absent, and, in 1929, her scandalous, beloved younger sister is one of the 42 killed in an explosion at the local dance hall. Who is to blame? Mobsters from St. Louis? The embittered local gypsies? The preacher who railed against the loose morals of the waltzing couples? Or could it have been a colossal accident? Alma thinks she knows the answer—and that its roots lie in a dangerous love affair. Her dogged pursuit of justice makes her an outcast and causes a long-standing rift with her own son. By telling her story to her grandson, she finally gains some solace—and peace for her sister. Her grandson, meanwhile, is advised to “Tell it. Go on and tell it”—tell the story of his family’s struggles, suspicions, secrets, and triumphs. • THE MAID’S VERSION is Woodrell’s much-anticipated first novel since the publication of Winter’s Bone (LB, 978-0-316-05755-4, 8/06), which received widespread critical acclaim. • The film version of Winter’s Bone won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Picture at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, and was nominated for four Academy Awards, boosting sales of the Back Bay paperback editions of the novel to more than 90,000. • Woodrell’s The Death of Sweet Mister (BB, 978-0-316-20614-3, 4/12) received the 2011 Clifton Fadiman Medal for excellence in fiction from the Center for Fiction, judged by Dennis Lehane. • Five of Daniel Woodrell’s eight novels were selected as New York Times Notable Books of the Year. Tomato Red won the PEN West Award for the Novel in 1999.

lives in the Ozarks near the Arkansas line with his wife, Katie Estill.

Her name was Alma and she did not care to be called Grandma or Mamaw, and might loose a slap if addressed as Granny. She was lonely, old and proud, and I’d been sent from my river town near St. Louis by my dad as a gesture of reconciliation. She was glad I’d been sent and concerned that I have a good time, a memorable summer, but she was not naturally given to much frolic; the last hours of play she’d known had been before World War I….It was the summer of 1965, but she still did not have a television, only a radio that seemed always to be announcing livestock prices and yield estimates. There was a twang stretching every word Alma said, but for days and days she didn’t say much. Then came a late afternoon when I was dramatically dispirited, moody and bored, foot idly kicking at things I’d been told not to kick, a sweltering day that turned dark as a sinister storm settled overhead, and we sat together on her small porch in a strong wind to watch those vivid actions break across the sky. Storm clouds were scored by bright lightning, and thunder boomed. Her dress was flapping, her eyes narrowed and distant, and she cunningly chose that raging moment to begin telling me her personal account of the Arbor Dance Hall explosion of 1929, how forty-two dancers from this small corner of the Missouri Ozarks had perished in an instant, waltzing couples murdered midstep, blown toward the clouds in a pink mist chased by towering flames, and why it happened.

The explosive, dark secrets behind America’s

A crime lord has declared war on America.

post-WWII science programs from the author of the New York Times bestseller Area 51.

Only Detective Michael Bennett knows why. Manuel Perrine doesn’t fear anyone or anything. A charismatic and ruthless leader, Perrine slaughters rivals as effortlessly as he wears his trademark white linen suit. Detective Michael Bennett once managed to put Perrine behind bars, the only official in the U.S. ever to accomplish that. But now Perrine is out, and he has sworn to find and kill Bennett and everyone dear to him. Detective Bennett, along with his 10 adopted children, their nanny, and his grandfather, are hidden safely on a rural California farm, with guards courtesy of the FBI’s witness protection program. Perrine begins to embark on an escalating series of assassinations across the country, killings whose brazenness and audacity bring into question the possibility of safety and law in the U.S. The FBI has no choice but to ask Detective Bennett to risk it all in Perrine’s war on America. With explosive action and fierce villainy that rivals James Bond movies at their best, GONE is the next astounding novel by James Patterson.

In the chaos following WWII, some of the greatest spoils of Germany’s resources were the Third Reich’s scientific minds. The U.S. government secretly decided that the value of these former Nazis’ knowledge outweighed their crimes and began a covert operation code-named Paperclip to allow them to work in the U.S. without the public’s full knowledge. Drawing on exclusive interviews with dozens of Paperclip family members, colleagues, and interrogators, and with access to German archival documents (including papers made available to her by direct descendants of the Third Reich’s ranking members), files obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, and lost dossiers discovered at the National Archives and Harvard University, Annie Jacobsen follows more than a dozen German scientists through their postwar lives and into one of the most complex, nefarious, and jealously guarded government secrets of the 20th century.

There’s only room for one Queen Bee: A

A groundbreaking—and terrifying—

hilarious and touching novel about the social world of school mothers.

examination of the widespread resurgence of antisemitism, by the internationally bestselling author of Hitler’s Willing Executioners.

It’s the start of another school year at St. Ambrose. While the children are busy in the classroom, their mothers are learning sharper lessons. Lessons in friendship. Lessons in betrayal. Lessons in the laws of community, the transience of power. . . and how to get invited to lunch. Beatrice—undisputed queen bee. Ruler, by Divine Right, of all school fundraising, this year, last year, and, surely, for many to come. Heather—desperate to volunteer, desperate to be noticed, desperate to belong. Georgie—desperate for a cigarette. And Rachel—watching them all, keeping her distance. But soon to discover that the line between amused observer and miserable outcast is a thin one. THE HIVE is a wickedly funny and brilliantly observed story about female friendship, power plays, and the joys and perils (well, mainly perils) of trying to do one’s part.

Antisemitism never went away, but since the turn of the century it has multiplied beyond what anyone would have predicted. It is openly spread by intellectuals, politicians and religious leaders, around the globe in Europe, Asia, the Arab world, America and Africa, and supported by hundreds of millions more. Indeed, today antisemitism is stronger than at any time since the Holocaust. In THE DEVIL THAT NEVER DIES, Daniel Jonah Goldhagen reveals the unprecedented, global form of this age-old hatred; its strategic use by states; its powerful appeal to individuals and groups; and how technology has fueled the flames that had been smoldering prior to the millennium. A remarkable work of intellectual brilliance, moral stature, and urgent alarm, THE DEVIL THAT NEVER DIES is destined to be one of the most provocative and talked-about books of the year.

• THE DEVIL THAT NEVER DIES returns to the core subject matter of Goldhagen’s most successful book that captured the attention of the United States and the entire world. • The acclaimed PBS documentary based on Goldhagen’s previous book, Worse than War (Public Affairs, 2009), has raised his profile even further. • Sadly, the increasing antisemitic threat and violence make THE DEVIL THAT NEVER DIES ever more necessary.

A stunning exploration of the subtle erosion

of freedom in an age of concocted fear and de facto military authority.

journey into the secret lives of the wild animals at our back door.

When we think of a military coup, the first image that comes to mind is a general, standing at a podium with a flag behind him, declaring the deposing of elected leaders and the institution of martial law. Think again. In AMERICAN COUP, William M. Arkin reveals a desk-bound takeover, known as the program, of the highest reaches of government by a coterie of “grey men” of the national security establishment. Operating between the lines of the Constitution, this powerful and unelected group fights to save the nation from “terror” and weapons of mass destruction while at the same time modifying and undermining the very essence of the country. Many books are written about secrecy, surveillance, and government law-breaking; none so powerfully expose the truth of everyday life in this state of war.

In THE URBAN BESTIARY, acclaimed nature writer Lyanda Lynn Haupt journeys into the heart of the everyday wild, where coyotes, raccoons, chickens, hawks, and humans live in closer proximity than ever before. Haupt’s observations bring compelling new questions to light: Whose “home” is this? Where does the wild end and the city begin? And what difference does it make to us as humans living our everyday lives? In this wholly original blend of science, story, myth, and memoir, Haupt draws us into the secret world of the wild creatures that dwell among us in our urban neighborhoods, whether we are aware of them or not. With beautiful illustrations and practical sidebars on everything from animal tracking to opossum removal, THE URBAN BESTIARY is a lyrical book that awakens wonder, delight, and respect for the urban wild, and our place within it.

• A celebrated columnist, investigator, and historian, Arkin has been looking into government secrecy and national security affairs for more than three decades. Working for the Washington Post, he conceived and co-authored the landmark “Top Secret America” investigation, and co-wrote the national bestseller of the same name with colleague Dana Priest (LB, 978-0-316-18221-8, 8/11). • The assault on the Constitution is a subject of great interest among core communities of the book marketplace. • AMERICAN COUP will be published on the anniversary of the signing of the American Constitution. • At a time when the issues of military spending and gun control are in the national spotlight, AMERICAN COUP reveals the powerful forces behind both debates.

A thrilling tale of supernatural adventure, set

The definitive book on schmaltz—a staple in

n ing i Com t 2013 s Augu

traditional Jewish cuisine—by one of America’s most respected culinary writers.

on the snowy peaks of Mount Everest from the bestselling author of The Terror.

For culinary expert and James Beard Award-winning author Michael Ruhlman, the ultimate goal in cooking is flavor, and for certain dishes nothing introduces it half as well as schmaltz, or rendered chicken fat flavored with onions. THE BOOK OF SCHMALTZ acts as a primer on the ingredient and its uses, including traditional Jewish dishes such as kugel and kreplach, as well as contemporary recipes such as vichysoisse and savory brioche. Potatoes cooked with schmaltz take on a crispness and satisfying flavor that vegetable oil can’t produce. Meats and starches gain a depth and complexity that set them apart from the same dishes prepared with olive oil or butter. Ruhlman was inspired to undertake this culinary exploration by his neighbor Lois Waxman Baron, who notes that “Schmaltz is like a thread that runs through a great tapestry….It’s a secret handshake among Jews who love to cook and eat.”

It’s 1926, and the desire to summit the world’s highest mountain has reached a fever pitch among adventurers. Three young friends, eager to take their shot at the top, accept funding from a grieving mother whose son fell to his death on Mt. Everest two years earlier. But she refuses to believe he’s dead, and wants them to bring him back alive. As they set off toward Everest, the men encounter other hikers who are seeking the boy’s body for their own mysterious reasons. What valuable item could he have been carrying? What is the truth behind the many disappearances on the mountain? As they journey to the top of the world, the three friends face abominable choices, actions—and possibly creatures. A bone-chilling, pulse-pounding story of supernatural suspense, THE ABOMINABLE is Dan Simmons at his best.

• This will be the only available book on cooking with schmaltz, making it a definitive reference in the category of Jewish cooking. • Ruhlman has an impressive track record with single-subject culinary books, including Charcuterie (W. W. Norton, 2005) and Salumi (W. W. Norton, 2012). • Ruhlman is a recognizable food personality, and his numerous appearances include spots as a judge on Iron Chef and as a featured guest on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations. • Published in time for the Jewish holidays, THE BOOK OF SCHMALTZ is a natural for targeted media coverage and holiday placement.

Malcolm Gladwell, the #1 bestselling author of The Tipping Point, Blink, and Outliers, offers his most provocative—and dazzling—book yet. “In the vast world of nonfiction writing, Malcolm Gladwell is as close to a singular talent as exists today.” —NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

We all know that underdogs can win—that’s what the David versus Goliath legend tells us, and we’ve seen it with our own eyes. Or have we? In DAVID AND GOLIATH, Malcolm Gladwell, with his unparalleled ability to grasp connections others miss, uncovers the hidden rules that shape the balance between the weak and the mighty, the powerful and the dispossessed. Gladwell examines the battlefields of Northern Ireland and Vietnam, takes us into the minds of cancer researchers and civil rights leaders, and digs into the dynamics of successful and unsuccessful classrooms—all in an attempt to demonstrate how fundamentally we misunderstand the true meaning of advantages and disadvantages. When does a traumatic childhood work in a person's favor? When does a disability leave someone better off? Drawing upon psychology, history, science, business, and politics, DAVID AND GOLIATH is a beautifully written book about the surprising power of the underdog. Millions of readers have been waiting for the next Malcolm Gladwell book. That wait is over. • Gladwell’s previous books have sold millions of copies and been permanent fixtures on the bestseller lists since publication. • It has been almost five years since Outliers (LB, 978-0-316-01792-3, 11/08), and the arrival of DAVID AND GOLIATH will be the nonfiction publishing event of the year.

BILL WADMAN

David and Goliath

Malcolm Gladwell

has been a staff writer at The New Yorker since 1996. Prior to joining The New Yorker, he was a reporter at the Washington Post. Gladwell was born in England and grew up in rural Ontario. He now lives in New York.

In the center of old Saigon, just down the street from the Reunification Palace, is a well-worn European-style villa that dates from the days when Vietnam was a French colony—and Saigon was the closest thing, on that side of the world, to Paris. The address is 176 Rue Pasteur. It is a day-care center now, but for a time in the 1960s, it was home to a secret Pentagon study, and what emerged from the villa had a profound effect on the course of the war in Vietnam waged by the U.S. military. The work at 176 Pasteur also—no less importantly—started an argument. On one side of that debate was a man named Leon Goure, who for a time lived upstairs in one of the villa’s grand bedrooms and cut a wide swath through the expatriate community of Saigon. On the other side was an equally remarkable man named Konrad Kellen, who, as a point of principle, refused to set foot in the villa at all. In the fight between Goure and Kellen, Goure turned out to be wrong and Kellen turned out to be right. The tragedy of 176 Pasteur— and the puzzle that DAVID AND GOLIATH sets out to explore—is that very few people realized this, at least until it was too late.

The author of the classic bestsellers The Secret History and The Little Friend returns with a brilliant, highly anticipated new novel. Praise for The Secret History:

“A remarkably powerful novel and ferociously well-paced entertainment…. Forceful, cerebral, and impeccably controlled.”

A young boy in New York City, Theo Decker, miraculously survives an accident that takes the life of his mother. Alone and abandoned by his father, Theo is taken in by a friend’s family and struggles to make sense of his new life. In the years that follow, he becomes entranced by one of the few things that reminds him of his mother: a small, mysteriously captivating painting that ultimately draws Theo into the art underworld. Composed with the skills of a master, THE GOLDFINCH is a haunted odyssey through present-day America, and a drama of almost unbearable acuity and power. It is a story of loss and obsession, survival and self-invention, and the enormous power of art. • Donna Tartt’s first novel, The Secret History (Knopf, 1992), has sold more than five million copies and has been translated into more than 20 languages. • Tartt’s second novel, The Little Friend (Knopf, 2002), was shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction and was awarded the W.H. Smith Literary Award in 2003.

“Tartt’s voice is unlike that of any of her contemporaries.” Excerpt from THE GOLDFINCH: Her death was my fault. Other people have always been a little too quick to assure me that it wasn’t; and yes, only a kid, who could have known, terrible accident, rotten luck, could have happened to anyone, it’s all perfectly true and I don’t believe a word of it. It happened in New York, April 10th, fourteen years ago. (Even my hand balks at the date; I had to push to write it down, just to keep the pen moving on the paper. It used to be a perfectly ordinary day but now it sticks up on the calendar like a rusty nail). If the day had gone as planned, it would have faded into the sky unmarked, swallowed without a trace along with the rest of my eighth-grade year. What would I remember of it now? Little or nothing. But of course the texture of that morning is clearer than the present, down to the drenched, wet feel of the air.

DAVID SHANKBONE

The Double

George Pelecanos

is the bestselling author of a series of novels set in and around Washington, DC. He is also an independent film producer, and a producer and Emmy-nominated writer on the HBO series The Wire and Treme. He lives in Maryland.

Every man has his dark side...Spero Lucas confronts his own in the most explosive thriller yet from one of America’s best-loved crime writers. The job seems simple enough: retrieve the valuable painting—“The Double”—Grace Kinkaid’s ex-boyfriend stole from her. It’s the sort of thing Spero Lucas specializes in: finding what’s missing, and doing it quietly. But Grace wants more. She wants Lucas to find the man who humiliated her—a violent career criminal with a small gang of brutal thugs at his beck and call. Lucas is a man who knows how to get what he wants, whether it’s a thief on the run—or a marrried woman. In the midst of a steamy, passionate love affair that he knows can’t last, in pursuit of a dangerous man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants, Lucas is forced to decide what kind of man he is—and how far he’ll go to get what he wants. • Pelecanos introduced the intriguing character of Spero Lucas in The Cut (LB, 9780-316-07842-9, 8/11) to great acclaim, and continues the series with THE DOUBLE. • Pelecanos is beloved by other writers and has received highest praise from writers such as Michael Connelly, Dennis Lehane, and Lee Child. • Pelecanos was an Emmy-nominated writer on the acclaimed HBO series The Wire, which has a loyal fan base. He also is a writer and producer on the HBO series Treme. Excerpt from THE DOUBLE: “I have a friend, a woman named Grace,” Amanda said. “She’s had a little trouble lately. I think you might be able to help her.” “What kind of trouble, exactly?” “Man trouble. Not unusual for her, actually. Grace seems to attract a certain kind of guy. She’s divorced, with a long line of cumsack boyfriends. They don’t stick around long.” “Maybe it’s her.” “If I didn’t know her, I’d say the same thing. Thing is, she’s a good person. She works for one of those feed-the-children non-profits, even though she has a law degree and could be doing a lot better.” “So her flaw is her choice in men.” “This last guy she got tangled up with? If he’s not a sociopath, he’s in the next zip code.” “I’m no leg breaker.” “This is in your wheelhouse. He stole something from her, and she’d like to have it back. But she can’t prove it. The police won’t do her any good. She needs some private help.” “What’d this gentleman take?” “A painting. That’s all I know. But I think he stole a lot more from her than that.” “Emotionally, you mean.” “You’ll get it when you meet her.” “Is she aware of my cut?” “I told her that you take 40 percent.” “Give me her contact information,” said Lucas. “And the contact information of that woman sitting down there on the end of the bar.”

Isa Chandra Moskowitz

is the bestselling author of the hit vegan cookbooks Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook (Da Capo Lifelong Books, 2007), Vegan With a Vengeance (Da Capo Press, 2005), and many more. She lives in Omaha, Nebraska.

Welcome to ISA DOES IT! This book has a mission: to get you in the kitchen, cooking satisfying meals with fresh ingredients any day of the week. Cooking doesn’t come second nature to everyone. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that in this age of convenience food, it hardly comes naturally to anyone, except maybe bloggers and reality show contestants. But what I’m proposing isn’t a diatribe against convenience food; my fingers have known the pleasures of keying up a microwave burrito. Maybe you already cook, but not as much as you would like. Maybe you’re a proficient cook but new to the vegan pantry. Or maybe you’re familiar with vegan cooking and simply looking to breathe new life into your repertoire? What I’m offering are recipes, tips, strategies, and even some philosophy to make your time in the kitchen as productive, easy, and—I hope—even as fun as possible! Of course, fun isn’t a requirement. I’ve spent many a night angrily sautéing rainbow chard, but it should be at least somewhat enjoyable most of the time.

The definitive story of Amazon.com, one of

A taut, thrilling adventure story about buried

Amazon.com started off delivering books through the mail. But its visionary founder, Jeff Bezos, wasn’t content with being a bookseller. He wanted Amazon to become the everything store, offering limitless selection and seductive convenience at disruptively low prices. To do so, he developed a corporate culture of relentless ambition and secrecy that’s never been cracked. Until now. Brad Stone enjoyed unprecedented access to current and former Amazon employees and Bezos family members, giving readers the first in-depth, fly-on-the-wall account of life at Amazon. Compared to tech’s other elite innovators—Jobs, Gates, Zuckerberg— Bezos is a private man. But he stands out for his restless pursuit of new markets, leading Amazon into risky new ventures like the Kindle and cloud computing, and transforming retail in the same way Henry Ford revolutionized manufacturing. THE EVERYTHING STORE will be the revealing, definitive biography of the company that placed one of the first and largest bets on the Internet and forever changed the way we shop and read.

It’s the 19th century on the Gulf Coast, a time of opportunity and lawlessness. After escaping the Texas brothel where she’d been a virtual prisoner, Lucinda Carter heads for Middle Bayou to meet her lover, who has a plan to make them both rich, chasing rumors of a pirate’s buried treasure. Meanwhile Nate Cannon, a young Texas policeman with a pure heart and a strong sense of justice, is on the hunt for a ruthless killer named McGill who has claimed the lives of men, women, and even children across the frontier. Who—if anyone—will survive when their paths finally cross? As Lucinda and Nate’s stories converge, guns are drawn, debts are paid, and Kathleen Kent delivers an unforgettable portrait of a woman who will stop at nothing to make a new life for herself.

• As we’ve seen with the movie The Social Network and Steve Jobs (Simon & Schuster, 2011), there is significant interest in the inside stories of technology leaders, and Jeff Bezos’s story has yet to be told in a substantive way. We’ve had Apple and Facebook—now it’s time for Amazon, whose distinct business philosophy is the envy of companies around the world. • Amazon has become one of the most recognizable brands in the world, known for being uniquely innovative, disruptive—and polarizing. Love it or hate it, this book will appeal to anyone who wants the inside story. • The author recently wrote two cover stories for Bloomberg Businessweek about Amazon.

An unorthodox history of baseball told

The American classic, macaroni and cheese,

No sport embraces its wild history quite like baseball, especially in memorabilia and objects. Sure, there are baseball cards and team pennants. But there are also huge balls, giant bats, peanuts, Cracker Jacks, eyeblack, and more, each with a backstory you have to read to believe. In THE 34-TON BAT, Sports Illustrated writer Steve Rushin tells the real, unvarnished story of baseball through the lens of all the things that make it the game that it is. Rushin weaves these rich stories—from ballpark pipe organs played by malevolent organists to backed up toilets at Ebbets Field—together in their order of importance (from most to least) for an entertaining and compulsive read, glowing with a deep passion for America’s Pastime. The perfect holiday gift for casual fans and serious collectors alike, THE 34-TON BAT is a true heavy hitter.

Food writers Stephanie Stiavetti and Garrett McCord ask us to reconsider America’s favorite comfort food, mac and cheese. Using fresh ingredients and artisanal cheeses, they show how the magic of pasta and cheese can produce dishes that are satisfying and chic. Recipes are inventive but not overly complicated, and include such unexpected treats as Beecher’s Flagship Cheddar with Avocado, Lime, and Shell Pasta; Drunken Goat with Fennel, Edamame, Mint, and Rotini; and Pumpkin Stuffed with Fontina, Italian Sausage, and Macaroni. MELT takes mac and cheese out of the box and elevates it to a level that will delight even the most sophisticated palates.

reinvented with artisanal cheeses, an array of pastas, and dazzling flavor combinations.

• This book is a perfect fit for both the casual fan and the serious baseball collector. • What Sam Kean did for science in his New York Times bestseller The Disappearing Spoon (LB, 6/10), Steve Rushin does for baseball in THE 34-TON BAT. • Perfect holiday gift for all baseball fans that provides endless anecdotes for holiday cocktail party chatter.

An illustrated “sequel” to the famous Kama

Stories and recipes from Rick and Michael

For centuries, lovers have found inspiration and advice in the ancient text of the Kama Sutra. Now, Simon Rich— “one of the funniest writers in America” (The Daily Beast)— and Farley Katz have unearthed a valuable new document—a guide to the positions most common after marriage. From “the interrupted congress” to “the beaching of the whales,” here are the poses, positions, and games married lovers play to keep the spark alive—and the dishwasher properly loaded. Complete with four-color, full-page illustrations in the style of the original Kama Sutra, but with modern, domestic accoutrements: dirty diapers, TV remotes, and wine glasses aplenty.

Rick and Michael Mast are among just a handful of chocolate makers in the U.S. dedicated to producing handmade craft chocolate. In MAST BROTHERS CHOCOLATE: A Family Cookbook, they share the unique story of how they began their journey as chocolate makers, from working out of a cramped Brooklyn apartment to operating their Williamsburg factory and delivering to customers and top restaurants around the world. Recipes feature classic American desserts, like chocolate cookies and cakes, brownies, bars, milkshakes, and even home-made whoopie pies. There are also savory dishes, like pan-seared red scallops with cocao nibs. Striking color photographs and the Mast Brothers’ signature custom paper designs appear throughout. In keeping with their philosophy of elegant simplicity, recipes focus on great ingredients and straightforward preparations.

From the acclaimed author of The Rehearsal

Bestselling author Richard Koch shows managers

comes a novel about a young woman on trial for murder in nineteenth-century New Zealand.

how to apply the 80/20 Principle to achieve exceptional results at work—without stress or long hours.

On a blustery January day, a prostitute is arrested. In the midst of the 1866 gold rush on the coast of New Zealand, this might have gone unnoticed. But three notable events occur on that same day: a luckless drunk dies, a wealthy man vanishes, and a ship’s captain of ill repute cancels all of his business and weighs anchor, as if making an escape. Anna Wetherell, the prostitute in question, is connected to all three men. This sequence of apparently coincidental events provokes a secret council of powerful townsmen to investigate. But they are interrupted by the arrival of a stranger: young Walter Moody, who has a secret of his own... THE LUMINARIES is an intricately crafted feat of storytelling, a mystery that reveals the ways our interconnected lives reshape our destinies.

• After winning a number of New Zealand’s literary prizes, Eleanor Catton is now a rising star on the international literary scene; rights to her first novel, The Rehearsal (RAB, 978-0-316-07433-9, 5/10), were sold around the globe.

In his bestselling book The 80/20 Principle, Richard Koch showed readers how to put the 80/20 Principle—the idea that 80 percent of results come from just 20 percent of effort—into practice in their personal lives. Now in THE 80/20 MANAGER, he demonstrates how to apply the principle to management. An 80/20 manager learns to focus only on the issues that really matter, achieving exceptional results, and feeling successful every day while working less hard in fewer hours. A large number of managers—especially in these difficult times—feel completely overwhelmed. Their inboxes are overflowing and they constantly struggle to finish their to-do lists, leaving little time for the things that really matter. THE 80/20 MANAGER shows a new way to look at management—and at life—to enjoy work and build a successful and fulfilling career.

An epic story, set against the backdrop of World War I, from bestselling author Anita Shreve. Praise for Rescue:

“A beautiful novel about the limits of forgiveness and the fragility of family. Pitchperfect all the way to the final line.”

—DENNIS LEHANE

When an American woman, Stella Bain, is found suffering from severe shell shock in an exclusive garden in London, surgeon August Bridge and his wife selflessly agree to take her in. A gesture of goodwill turns into something more as Bridge quickly develops a clinical interest in his houseguest. Stella had been working as a nurse’s aide near the front, but she can’t remember anything prior to four months earlier when she was found wounded on a French battlefield. In a narrative that takes us from London to America and back again, Shreve has created an engrossing and wrenching tale about love and the meaning of memory, set against the haunting backdrop of a war that destroyed an entire generation. • Shreve’s most recent novel, Rescue (LB, 978-0-316-02072-5, 11/10), has sold more than 330,000 copies in all formats. Her novel, Testimony (LB, 978-0-316-05986-2, 10/08), is currently in its fifth printing in paperback, with more than 480,000 copies sold. • More than 12 million copies of Shreve’s novels have been sold in the United States alone. Since 2001, Shreve’s books have spent over 100 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list in hardcover and paperback. • In STELLA BAIN, Shreve returns to the kind of layered, historical narrative her readers have loved in novels such as The Weight of Water (LB, 1/97), Fortune’s Rocks (LB, 12/99), and All He Ever Wanted (LB, 4/03).

Anita Shreve

is the acclaimed author of 16 previous novels, including Rescue, A Change in Altitude, Testimony, and The Pilot’s Wife, which was a selection of Oprah’s Book Club. She lives in Massachusetts.

Sunrise glow through canvas panels. Foul smell of gas gangrene. Men moaning all around her. Pandemonium and chaos. She floats inside a cloud. Cottony, a little dingy. Pinpricks of light summon her to wakefulness. She drifts, and then she sleeps. Distinct sounds of metal on metal, used instruments tossed into a pan. She tries to remember why she lies on a cot, enclosed within panels of canvas. She glances down and finds that she has on men’s mauve pajamas. Her feet hurt. A small piece of cloth with a question mark is pinned to a uniform hanging from a hook. She realizes then that she does not know her own name, a fact she receives with growing anxiety. She struggles to remember who she is. The name Lis floats lightly into her thoughts. But she does not think Lis is her name. Elizabeth...? No. Ella...? Ellen...? Possibly, though there ought to be a sibilant. She ponders the empty space where a name should be. The name Stella bubbles up into her consciousness. Can Stella be it?  She examines the letters as they appear, and the more she studies them, she more certain she is that Stella is correct. Again, she drifts into a half sleep. When she comes to, she cannot remember the name she has decided upon. She lets her mind empty, and, gradually, it returns. Stella. Such a small thing. Such a big thing.

His love of his family is his anchor, and gives him the strength to confront evil in his work. One man knows this deeply, and uses Alex’s strength as a weapon against him in the most unsettling and unexpected novel of James Patterson’s career. When the ones Cross loves are in danger, he will do anything to protect them. If he does anything to protect them, they will die. CROSS MY HEART is the most powerful Alex Cross novel ever, propelled by the ever-ingenious mind of James Patterson, the world’s #1 bestselling writer.

Football is the country’s most popular pastime, and yet most of what happens in today’s NFL is a mystery. The New York Jets gave Nicholas Dawidoff a security code, a locker, an office in the scouting department, and for an entire year he lived with the team. He has written a vivid, funny, and moving narrative about an emblematic NFL season that changes the way we know the game. In COLLISION LOW CROSSERS, Dawidoff introduces us to a memorable cast of characters: brilliant, polarizing head coach Rex Ryan; the defensive coaches and their offensive counterparts and rivals; the best defensive player in football, Darrelle Revis, and the young, whimsical, and erratic quarterback Mark Sanchez; and the brotherhood of American characters who come together to form a team. Here finally is the definitive work on the elusive game, a story that is part Paper Lion and part Moneyball, part Deliverance and part The Office.

highest level, ever—when Alex Cross becomes the obsession of a genius of menace set on proving that he is the greatest mind in the history of crime.

• Dawidoff had better access to an NFL team than anyone has ever had. Most notably, he was treated as a member of the defensive coaching staff. • The Jets are one of the NFL’s most talked-about teams, and interest in them extends well beyond their fanbase. • Dawidoff can write well about anything. His first book, the bestselling The Catcher Was a Spy (Pantheon, 1994), is one of the classic books about baseball. Other books of his have been named a Pulitzer Prize finalist and one of the greatest all-time works of travel literature by Condé Nast Traveller. • Dawidoff ’s book began with a New York Times Magazine cover story; his recent New Yorker piece on the Jets’ quarterback controversy was filled with an insider’s perspective and insight.

The definitive, intimate, no-holds-barred

In this charming and practical cookbook,

biography of Johnny Cash.

Master Baker Lionel Vatinet shares his knowledge and passion for baking irresistible artisanal bread.

People don’t just listen to Johnny Cash—they believe in him. Although part of his life has been told on film, there are many compelling layers to his story that have remained hidden—until now. Robert Hilburn tells the unvarnished truth about a musical icon whose personal life was far more troubled and his artistry much more profound than even his most devoted fans have realized. As music critic for the Los Angeles Times, Hilburn knew Cash well throughout his life— he was the only music journalist at the legendary Folsom Prison concert in 1968, and he interviewed him extensively just before Cash’s death in 2003. Drawing upon his personal experience with Cash and a trove of never-before seen material from the singer’s inner circle, Hilburn gives us a compelling, human portrait of one of the most iconic figures in modern popular culture—not only a towering figure in country music, but also a seminal influence in rock.

M ARKETI N G

• Through the cooperation of the Johnny Cash estate, his son and daughters, his manager and many friends, Hilburn had access to scores of private letters and other confidential documents that help illuminate the story of a man of faith who had to struggle with often overpowering demons to create his inspiring music. • Hilburn has not only done unprecedented research on Cash, he was also a personal friend. Throughout his time at the Los Angeles Times, from 1970-2005, he knew Cash well, spending time with him at many different points in his career. • Corn Flakes with John Lennon ( Rodale Books, 2009) was a Los Angeles Times bestseller.

It’s 1832 and Coll Coyle has killed the wrong man. The dead man’s father is an expert tracker and ruthless killer with a single-minded focus on vengeance.

The inspiring memoir of how a couple healed

A James Patterson holiday thrill: Detective

Newlyweds Josh and Alissa were at a party and received a challenge that shook them to the core: do you think you can really make a difference? Especially in a place like Rwanda, where the scars of genocide linger and poverty is rampant? While Josh worked hard bringing food and health care to the country’s rural villages, Alissa was determined to put their foodie expertise to work. The couple opened Heaven, a gourmet restaurant overlooking Kigali, which became an instant success. Remarkably, they found that between helping youth marry their own local ingredients with gourmet recipes (and mix up “the best guacamole in Africa”) and teaching them how to help themselves, they created much-needed jobs while showing that genocide's survivors really could work together. While first a memoir of love, adventure, and family, A THOUSAND HILLS TO HEAVEN also provides a remarkable view of how, through health, jobs, and economic growth, our foreign aid programs can be quickly remodeled and work to end poverty worldwide.

It’s a snowy Christmas Eve, and Detective Alex Cross is at home celebrating with his family. Nana Mama’s famous pecan pie is in the oven and the kids are hanging their favorite ornaments on the tree. Just as Alex’s wife Bree emerges from the kitchen with a bowl of homemade eggnog, his phone rings with news that shatters the night: At a nearby home, a family has been taken hostage—and the situation is spiraling out of control fast. Alex rushes to the scene and confronts the unthinkable: A father is threatening to murder his own children and his ex-wife. Then just as the insanity peaks, a second horrific situation explodes, one that no one could have foreseen and that puts millions of people at risk. Alex is forced to make a decision that could end as many lives as it saves—including his own. MERRY CHRISTMAS, ALEX CROSS will be a holiday classic for years to come.

a Rwandan village, raising a family near the old killing fields, and building a restaurant named Heaven.

• Bono, Scarlett Johansson, Google’s Eric Schmidt, and other celebrities have visited the restaurant or offered support for Rwanda’s recovery, and will rally behind the book. • Josh and Alissa have already been the subject of much media attention, and their success story will appeal to audiences interested in the human drama, as well as the development and business aspects of this book. • Three Cups of Tea (Viking/Penguin, 2006), The Blue Sweater (Rodale, 2010), We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed with Our Families (Picador, 1999)—A THOUSAND HILLS TO HEAVEN blends the best of all into a unique and powerfully moving story.

Michael Connelly 978-0-316-06951-9

Michael Connelly,

a #1 New York Times bestselling novelist and a former journalist, has won numerous crime fiction prizes. He lives in Florida.

Defense attorney Mickey Haller returns with a haunting case in the gripping new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Connelly. Mickey Haller gets the text, “Call me ASAP — 187,” and the California penal code for murder immediately gets his attention. Murder cases have the highest stakes and the biggest paydays, and they always mean Haller has to be at the top of his game. When Mickey learns that the victim was his own former client, a prostitute he thought he had rescued and put on the straight and narrow path, he knows he is on the hook for this one. He soon finds out that she was back in L.A. and back in the life. Far from saving her, Mickey may have been the one who put her in danger. Haunted by the ghosts of his past, Mickey must work tirelessly and bring all his skill to bear on a case that could mean his ultimate redemption or proof of his ultimate guilt. THE GODS OF GUILT shows once again why “Michael Connelly excels, easily surpassing John Grisham in the building of courtroom suspense.” (Los Angeles Times) • Connelly’s latest thriller, The Black Box (LB, 978-0-316-06943-4, 11/12), debuted at #1 on both the Combined Print and E-book and E-book only New York Times bestseller lists and is currently in its third printing with more than 350,000 hardcover copies in print. • His previous book, The Drop (LB, 978-0-316-06941-0, 11/11), debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and has sold more than 1.3 million copies across all formats. His most recent Mickey Haller novel, The Fifth Witness (LB, 978-0-31606935-9, 4/11), also debuted at #1 and has sold more than 1.1 million copies across all formats. • Connelly is a worldwide #1 bestseller with 50 million copies in circulation—and the hit movie based on The Lincoln Lawyer (LB, 978-0-316-73493-6, 10/05) brought him a new generation of readers. Excerpt from THE GODS OF GUILT: I silently studied La Cosse, trying to get a read on him. His story of innocence sounded plausible but I didn’t know what the police knew. “Okay, last thing, Andre. You said that I came recommended to you by Gisselle herself, is that right?” “Yes, she said you were the best lawyer in town.” “How did she know that?” La Cosse looked surprised, as if the whole conversation so far had been based on a given—that I knew Gisselle Dallinger. “She said she knew you, that you’d handled cases for her. She said you got her a really good deal once.” “And you’re sure it was me she was talking about.” “Yes. She said you hit a home run for her. She called you Mickey Mantle.” That stopped my breath short. I’d had a client once who would call me that. But I had not seen or heard from her in a long time. Not since I put her on a plane with enough money to start over and never come back. “Gisselle Dallinger was not her real name, was it?” “I don’t know. It’s all I knew her by.” There was a hard rap on the steel door behind me. My time was up. I looked at La Cosse. I was no longer second-guessing whether to take him on as a client. Without a doubt, I was taking the case.

At long last, the epic biography Ted Williams

a revolutionary new understanding of why and how we love, based on cutting-edge research.

deserves—and that his fans have been waiting for. Ted Williams was the best hitter in baseball history. His batting average of .406 in 1941 has not been topped since, and no player who has hit over 500 home runs has a higher career batting average. Those totals would have been even higher if Williams had not left baseball for nearly five years in the prime of his career to serve as a Marine pilot in WWII and Korea. He hit home runs as far as or farther than any player before him—and traveled a long way himself, as Ben Bradlee, Jr.’s, grand biography reveals. Born in 1918 in San Diego, Ted would spend most of his life disguising his Mexican heritage. During his 22 years with the Boston Red Sox, Williams electrified crowds across America—and shocked them, too: His notorious clashes with the press and fans threatened his reputation. Yet while he was a God in the batter’s box, he was profoundly human once he stepped away from the plate. His ferocity came to define his troubled domestic life. While baseball might have been straightforward for Ted Williams, life was not. THE KID is biography of the highest literary order, a thrilling and honest account of a legend in all his glory and human complexity. In his final at-bat, Williams hit a home run. Bradlee’s marvelous book clears the fences, too.

The Kid The Immortal Life of Ted Williams Ben Bradlee, Jr. 978-0-316-61435-1

• Bradlee is the only biographer to get full access to Williams’s personal papers, letters, home movies, as well as to all of his surviving wives, girlfriends, and children. • Williams is a legendary figure with huge appeal among baseball fans, especially in New England. And the cast of characters, from Babe Ruth to Joe DiMaggio to Jackie Robinson, among others, makes this a book of national appeal. • Ten years in the works and based on more than 600 interviews, THE KID provides countless new details about Williams’s hardscrabble childhood, his spectacular baseball career, his years as a “Top Gun’’ pilot in two wars, a private life marked by affairs, explosion and dysfunction—and finally, about the macabre cryonics affair that followed his death.

Every day, we hear of relationships failing and questions of whether humans are meant to be monogamous. LOVE SENSE presents new scientific evidence that tells us that humans are meant to mate for life. Dr. Johnson explains that romantic love is an attachment bond, just like that between mother and child, and shows us how to develop our “love sense”—our ability to develop long-lasting relationships. Love is not the least bit illogical or random, but actually an ordered and wise recipe for survival. LOVE SENSE covers the three stages of a relationship and how to best weather them; the intelligence of emotions and the logic of love; the physical and psychological benefits of secure love; and much more. Based on groundbreaking research, LOVE SENSE will change the way we think about love.

Dr. Sue Johnson is a clinical psychologist, Distinguished Research Professor at Alliant International University, and the developer of Emotionally Focused Therapy. She divides her time between Ottawa, New York, and San Diego. 53


A beautifully illustrated book of imaginary

Raise self-confident, self-reliant children

fables about Earth’s early—and lost—history.

using the RIE™ (Resources for Infant Educarers) Approach.

Before our history began, another—now forgotten— civilization thrived. The people who roamed Early Earth were much like us: curious, emotional, funny, ambitious, and vulnerable. In this series of illustrated and linked tales, Isabel Greenberg chronicles the explorations of a young man as he paddles from his home in the North Pole to the South Pole. There, he meets his true love, but their romance is ill-fated. Early Earth’s unusual and finicky polarity means the lovers can never touch. As intricate and richly imagined as the work of Chris Ware, and leavened with a dry wit that rivals Kate Beaton’s in Hark! A Vagrant (Drawn and Quarterly, 2011), Isabel Greenberg’s debut will be a welcome addition to the thriving graphic novel genre.

Your baby knows more than you think. That’s the heart of the principles and teachings of Magda Gerber, founder of RIE™ (Resources for Infant Educarers), and her Educaring™ Approach. BABY KNOWS BEST is based on Gerber’s belief in babies’ natural abilities to develop at their own pace, without coaxing from helicoptering or hovering parents. The Educaring™ Approach helps parents see their infants as competent people with a growing ability to communicate, problem-solve, and self-soothe. BABY KNOWS BEST is a comprehensive resource that shows parents how to respond to their babies’ cues and signals; how to develop healthy sleep habits; why babies need uninterrupted playtime; and how to set clear, consistent limits. The result? More relaxed parents and more confident, self-reliant children.

• The Educaring™ Approach has been featured in the New York Times, New York Magazine, The Atlantic, and on CBS and other media outlets. It is perfect for the morning shows. • RIE™ Parent-Infant Guidance classes are popular in the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand, and celebrities such as Felicity Huffman and William H. Macy, Jason Alexander, Hank Azaria, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jennifer Grey, and Dee Dee Myers have attended classes with their children.

James Patterson has created more enduring

An enthralling debut novel about a teenage girl who finds refuge—but perhaps not—in an 1840s Shaker community. In this exquisite, transporting debut, 15-year-old Polly Kimball sets fire to the family farm, killing her abusive father. She and her young brother find shelter in a Massachusetts Shaker community called The City of Hope. It is the Era of Manifestations, when young girls in Shaker enclaves all across the Northeast are experiencing extraordinary mystical visions, earning them the honorific of “Visionist” and bringing renown to their settlements. The City of Hope has not yet been blessed with a Visionist, but that changes when Polly arrives and is unexpectedly exalted. As she struggles to keep her dark secrets concealed in the face of increasing scrutiny, Polly finds herself in a life-changing friendship with a young Shaker sister named Charity, a girl who will stake everything— including her faith—on Polly’s honesty and purity. • Rachel Urquhart worked at Vogue for nine years, and has strong connections with the New York Times and New York Review of Books, among other publications. She is a former writer and editor for Spy. • THE VISIONIST provides an inside look at the Shakers, one of America’s most fabled and mysterious religious movements. • Urquhart’s grandfather, the playwright and screenwriter Sidney Howard (They Knew What They Wanted, Gone With the Wind ), bought a Shaker meeting house in the 1920s, and a lifetime of summers and weekends spent in that unique home inspired this novel. • The vivid and surprising details and strong female characters make this perfect for book club discussions.

Rachel Urquhart’s

nonfiction has been published in The New Yorker and Vanity Fair. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband and two sons.

It is not uncommon, when one is young, to think that life is simple. In my case, the journey through would not be difficult, requiring little besides discipline and effort. If I labored well, worshipped, confessed, and shunned all carnal desire, my soul would find sure and brilliant its path to Zion. And if I held faith as the brightest star in my firmament, all else would fall into order. After all, order means everything to a Shaker and I am a Shaker. But if we are to be sincere, then we know that we are not made for perfection. However we may try to fit the pattern, it pulls and bunches like a poorly sewn waistcoat and we exhaust ourselves with the fruitless smoothing of seams. I know something of this struggle and, now that I am old, I realize that my youthful presumptions about the way forward were based on a fundamental misunderstanding: I thought life was simple because I thought I was simple. On both counts, I was mistaken. What I could not know was that, even in societies as steady as my own, life-changing tumult can be born of a single happening. And though, when I first heard of it, the event may have felt as unconnected to my daily existence as a sigh breathed in a distant land, it turned out that nothing would be the same after the day in August of 1837 when seven young sisters received signs from the world beyond.

Alex Morrow faces her toughest opponents

The celebrated author of Down the Nile

travels far afield to investigate the world of the blind.

yet in this brilliant new thriller about criminals, consequences, and convictions.

In the tradition of Oliver Sacks’s The Island of the Colorblind, Rosemary Mahoney tells the story of Braille Without Borders, the first school for the blind in Tibet, and of Sabriye Tenberken, the remarkable blind woman who founded the school. Fascinated and impressed by what she learned from the blind children of Tibet, Mahoney was moved to investigate further the cultural history of blindness. As part of her research, she spent three months teaching at Tenberken’s international training center for blind adults in Kerala, India, an experience that reveals both the shocking oppression endured by the world’s blind, as well as their great resilience, integrity, ingenuity, and strength. By living among the blind, Rosemary Mahoney enables us to see them in fascinating close up. Having read FOR THE BENEFIT OF THOSE WHO SEE, you will never see the world in quite the same way again.

Police detective Alex Morrow has met plenty of unsavory characters in her line of work, but arms dealer Mark Lynch ranks among the most brutal and damaged of the criminals she’s known. Morrow is serving as a witness in Lynch’s trial, where the case hinges on his fingerprints found on the guns he sells. When the investigation leads to a privileged Scottish lawyer who’s expecting to be assassinated after a moneylaundering scheme goes bad, and a woman who’s spying on the people who put her in jail, Morrow has her hands full. And that’s before she even gets to her family issues. THE RED ROAD is a thrilling new novel from a masterful writer, proving once again that “If you don’t love Denise Mina, you don’t love crime fiction.” (Val McDermid)

• Down the Nile (LB, 978-0-316-10745-7, 7/07) was named a best book of 2007 by the New York Times, the Christian Science Monitor, Entertainment Weekly, and Publishers Weekly, and as one of the seven best travel books of the year by Amazon. The author’s Whoredom in Kimmage (Houghton Miflin, 1993) was a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist. • An early section of FOR THE BENEFIT OF THOSE WHO SEE appeared in O’s Guide to Life: The Best of Oprah Magazine. • Blindsight, a documentary which follows Tenberken and six blind teenagers on a climbing expedition in the Himalayas, won the 2007 Audience Award for Best Film at the 2007 Berlin Film Festival and the Palm Springs Festival.

Excerpt from THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION 10-DAY DETOX DIET:

Mark Hyman, MD,

is the chairman of the Institute for Functional Medicine and founder and medical director of The UltraWellness Center. He is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Blood Sugar Solution and UltraMetabolism. He lives in West Stockbridge, MA.

Are you ready for a total body revolution? I hope so! In my book, The Blood Sugar Solution, I shared my proven six-week plan for preventing, treating, and even reversing diabetes and pre-diabetes. Millions of people were amazed at the results. At the same time, the program kicked their metabolism into high gear, and they easily lost stubborn belly fat. Now I have created a fast-track plan to produce dramatic weight loss and radically reboot your entire system in just 10 days. With this step-by-step program you’ll stop your fat-storage hormone in its tracks, cool off the inflammation that contributes to weight gain, bust the belly bloat, end food fog, and upgrade your detox pathways. You’ll shed upwards of 10 pounds with astonishing speed and ease—and keep it off! But you’ll do more than just get rid of unwanted pounds. The hidden secret is that what makes you fat also makes you sick, so along with dropping excess weight, you’ll see your blood sugar and cholesterol plummet and your energy levels skyrocket. You'll see the power you have to feel better, reverse chronic symptoms, and lose weight as a natural side effect of creating health. You may be trying this diet to lose weight, and that’s fine by me. But the magic in THE BLOOD SUGAR SOLUTION 10-DAY DETOX DIET is that you’ll end up not just looking fantastic, but feeling fantastic—better than you ever imagined.

While camping with her family on a remote island, fiveyear-old Anna awakes in the night to the sound of her mother screaming. A rogue black bear, 300 pounds of fury, is attacking the family’s campsite, pouncing on her parents as prey. At her dying mother’s faint urging, Anna manages to get her brother into the family’s canoe and paddle away. But when the canoe dumps the two children on the edge of the woods, and the sister and brother must battle hunger, the elements, and a dangerous wilderness, we see Anna’s heartbreaking love for her family—and her struggle to be brave when nothing in her world seems safe anymore. Told in the honest, raw voice of five-year-old Anna, this is a riveting story of love, courage, and survival.

On a chilly November night in 1407, Louis of Orleans was murdered by a band of masked men. The crime stunned and paralyzed France since Louis had often ruled in place of his brother King Charles, who had gone mad. As panic seized Paris, an investigation began. In charge was the Provost of Paris, Guillaume de Tignonville, the city’s chief law enforcement officer—and one of history’s first detectives. As de Tignonville began to investigate, he realized that his hunt for the truth was much more dangerous than he ever could have imagined. A rich portrait of a distant world, BLOOD ROYAL is a gripping story of conspiracy, crime, and an increasingly desperate hunt for the truth. And in Guillaume de Tignonville, we have an unforgettable detective for the ages, a classic gumshoe for a cobblestoned era.

NYPD Red—the task force attacking the

One of America’s greatest investigative

A vengeful murderer, named the “Hazmat Killer” by the press, has taken it on himself to track down and kill people whose crimes have not been punished by the justice system. A video surfaces online after each killing, showing the victim confessing to an awful crime. There are those who secretly applaud the vigilante killer. NYPD Red Detective Zach Gordon and his partner Kylie MacDonald are called in after a woman of vast wealth and even greater connections disappears. Political and personal secrets of the highest order are in the balance, and Zach and Kylie have less than 24 hours to find what is really behind this murderer’s rampage—and stop him before he kills again. NYPD RED 2 is the next spectacular installment in James Patterson’s newest series, a book that shows “there’s no stopping his imagination.” (New York Times Book Review)

From 1957 to 1964, Robert Kennedy and Jimmy Hoffa channeled nearly all of their considerable powers into destroying each other. Kennedy’s battle with Hoffa burst into the public consciousness with the 1957 Senate Rackets Committee hearings and intensified when his brother named him attorney general in 1961. RFK put together a “Get Hoffa” squad that became a mini-FBI within the Justice Department, devoted to destroying one man. But Hoffa, with nearly unlimited Teamster funds, was not about to roll over. Drawing upon a treasure trove of previously secret and undisclosed documents, James Neff has crafted a brilliant, heart-pounding epic of crime and punishment, a saga of venom and relentlessness and two men willing to go beyond the lines to demolish each other.

Coming of age can happen at the strangest times: the surprising story of a man, his marriage, and his search for meaning.

remote island in Anne Zouroudi’s latest spellbinding crime novel set in modern Greece.

Anders Hill—nearing his early 60s and seemingly ensconced in the “land of steady habits,” a nickname for the affluent, morally strict hamlets of Connecticut that dot the commuter rail line—abandons his career and family for a new condo, and a new life. Stripped of the comforts of his previous identity, he turns up at a holiday party full of his ex-wife’s friends and is surprised to find that the very world he rejected may be one he needs. Thus Anders embarks on a clumsy, hilarious, and heartbreaking journey to reconcile his past with his present. Like the early work of John Updike, Ted Thompson’s debut finely observes a man deep in conflict with his community. With compassion for its characters and fresh insight into the American tradition of the “suburban narrative,” THE LAND OF STEADY HABITS introduces an auspicious talent.

A painter is found dead at sea off the coast of a remote Greek island. For our enigmatic detective Hermes Diaktoros, the plot can only thicken: the painter’s work, an icon of the Virgin long famed for its miraculous powers, has just been uncovered as a fake. But has the painter died of natural causes or by a wrathful hand? What secret is a dishonest gypsy keeping? And what haunts the ancient catacombs beneath the bishop’s house? In the fourth of the Seven Deadly Sins mysteries, the inimitable Hermes faces forgery, betrayal, and superstition, and the consequences of all-consuming rage.

• As founding director of 826NYC and editor of Noisy Outlaws, Unfriendly Blobs, and Some Other Things (McSweeney’s, 2005), an anthology of children’s stories by contemporary fiction writers, Thompson has strong connections with the literary community. • Thompson is the recipient of several scholarships to the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, and has had a longtime involvement with McSweeney’s and 826NYC literary communities.

The compelling untold story of a group of

Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe’s

stranded U.S. Army nurses and medics fighting to escape Nazi-occupied Europe.

hilarious and uncensored take on society’s ills.

Chris Kluwe came to prominence when his blistering and artful letter defending free speech to a Maryland state politician went viral. Now, the extraordinarily clever, wise, sharp-tongued blogosphere star, NFL player, husband and father, one-time violin prodigy, voracious lifetime reader, obsessive gamer, and fearless champion of empathy and personal freedom takes on everyone and everything in BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE SPARKLEPONIES. In this collection of rousing, uncensored personal essays, Kluwe tackles issues like guns, athletes’ salaries, and the Pope’s Twitter feed, while also addressing time travel, growing up in the 20-teens, the pay-per-view future of in-helmet cameras, and the end of the world. An enemy of bad behavior, Kluwe is a guy all of us would be lucky to have on our side in any war of words. Find out who and what he’s unleashing upon next in BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE SPARKLEPONIES.

When 26 Army nurses and medics—part of the 807th Medical Air Evacuation Transport Squadron—boarded a cargo plane for transport in November 1943, they never anticipated the crash landing in Nazi-occupied Albania that would lead to their months-long struggle for survival. A drama that captured the attention of the American public, the group and its flight crew dodged bullets and battled blinding winter storms as they climbed mountains and fought to survive, aided by courageous villagers who risked death at Nazi hands to help them. A mesmerizing tale of the courage and heroism of ordinary people, THE SECRET RESCUE tells not only a new story of struggle and endurance, but also one of the daring rescue attempts by clandestine American and British organizations amid the tumultuous landscape of the war.

• This story has never been fully told—those involved were sworn to secrecy after their rescue. • The author has collected an exclusive first-hand account from one remaining survivor, retraced the group’s journey, interviewed family members, gathered documents from archives in the U.S., the U.K., and Germany, and much more. • The plight of the 13 nurses in the MAETS particularly captivated the American public. Cate Lineberry writes for the New York Times, Smithsonian Magazine, National Geographic, among other publications, and has a reputation for illuminating and compelling stories that bring history to life.

Acclaimed author Joe R. Lansdale’s landmark

The best horror novel I’ve read since Peter

Straub’s Ghost Story. By turns terrifying and blackly funny, BREED is a total blast.”

mythic tale of love and vengeance at the dark dawn of the East Texas oil boom.

—STEPHEN KING

Jack Parker knows all too well how treacherous turn-ofthe-century East Texas can be. His parents did not survive a smallpox epidemic. His grandfather was murdered. Now his sister Lula has been kidnapped by a criminal who may believe wearing a dead man’s clothes protects him from death. With bounty hunter Shorty, a charismatic and cunning dwarf, and Eustace, a gravedigging son of an ex-slave, the heartbroken young Jack sets off on an epic quest to rescue his sister from the corrupt men who control much of the new territory. In the throes of being civilized, East Texas is still a wild feral place. Oil wells spurt liquid money from the ground, but blood and redemption rule supreme.

• Joe R. Lansdale has won numerous awards over the course of his career as a novelist—yet Edge of Dark Water (Mulholland, 978-0-316-18843-2, 3/12) may have been his most acclaimed, earning comparisons to Mark Twain, William Faulkner, and Stephen King. • Early 20th century East Texas is a time and place perennially fascinating to readers, from Cormac McCarthy’s Border Trilogy to Larry McMurtry to Charles Portis’ True Grit (Overlook, 2010). This is the next great Western Gothic.

What’s missing is a child, and as they try one infertility treatment after another desire becomes obsession. As a last-ditch attempt to make their dream of parenthood a reality, the Twisdens travel to Slovenia, where they undergo a painful procedure that gives them what they’ve so fervently wanted...but with awful consequences. Ten years later, coddled and living in a house of secrets, the twins Adam and Alice find themselves locked into their rooms every night, with sounds coming from their parents’ bedroom growing louder and more disturbing. Desperate for answers, the twins set out on a quest to uncover the truth about the man and woman who raised them. What they discover will reveal a threat so terrible that it must be escaped, at any cost.

hunting their most elusive adversary yet: The Falcon.

HUNT THE FALCON finds SEAL Team Six chasing “The Falcon,” an Iranian terrorist who has been stealing Libyan nuclear material. The hunt takes the team from Bangkok to Caracas in search of The Falcon’s forces. Crocker convinces the powers that be to allow him to operate in Iran, and he and the team go in full black in order to take down their mark. Meanwhile, Crocker’s estranged father—a former firefighter and hell-raiser who was kicked out of the Navy as a young seaman—reappears, forcing Crocker to recognize his life outside the shadows of SEAL life. It's not easy when work calls over 300 days of the year, and when it’s this essential to take an enemy down.

Sandra Vega, a forensic analyst with the Roman police department, mourns deeply for a marriage that ended too soon. A few months ago, in the dead of night, her husband, an up-and-coming journalist, plunged to his death at the top of a high-rise construction site. The police ruled it an accident. Sandra is convinced it was anything but. Launching her own inquiries, Sandra finds herself on a dangerous trail, working the same case that she is convinced led to her husband’s murder. It is an investigation that is deeply entwined with a series of disappearances that has swept the city, and brings Sandra ever closer to a centuries-old secret society that will do anything to stay in the shadows.

In Depression-era Chicago, Harper Curtis finds a key to a house that opens on to other times. But it comes at a cost. He has to kill the shining girls: bright young women, burning with potential. Curtis stalks them through their lives across different eras until, in 1989, one of his victims, Kirby Mazrachi, survives and starts hunting him back. Working with a former homicide reporter who is falling for her, Kirby races against time and reason to unravel an impossible mystery. THE SHINING GIRLS is a masterful twist on the classic serial killer tale: a violent quantum leap featuring a memorable and appealing girl in pursuit of a deadly criminal.

C.J. Sansom rewrites history in a thrilling novel that dares to imagine Britain under the thumb of Nazi Germany. “Intriguing. Haunting. Vividly imagined. Admirably expansive and unhurried. Exciting, sophisticated and moving. There will be few better historical novels published this year.” —THE TIMES (UK)

1952. Twelve years have passed since Churchill lost to the appeasers and Britain surrendered to Nazi Germany. The press, radio, and television are controlled. British Jews face ever greater constraints. But Churchill’s Resistance soldiers on. And in a Birmingham mental hospital, fragile scientist Frank Muncaster holds a secret that could alter the balance of the global struggle forever. Civil Servant David Fitzgerald, secretly acting as a spy for the Resistance, is given the mission to rescue his old friend Frank and get him out of the country. Hard on his heels is Gestapo agent Gunther Hoth, a brilliant, implacable hunter of men, who soon has Frank and David’s innocent wife Sarah directly in his sights. • C. J. Sansom is a multi-million-copy worldwide bestselling author as well as a national bestseller in the United States. DOMINION, the first epic, sweeping, alternate history novel from Sansom, in the tradition of mega-bestsellers such as Robert Harris’s Fatherland (Random House, 1992) and more recently, Stephen King’s 11/22/63 (S&S, 2011), is set to introduce Sansom’s work to readers in a major new way. • DOMINION has already been acclaimed in the UK as a fascinating piece of alternative history and one of the year’s best books, and has spent weeks on the bestseller lists. A major marketing campaign is being planned for the novel’s U.S. publication. • Both Sansom’s Shardlake novels and Winter in Madrid (Viking Adult, 2008), his Spanish Civil War spy thriller, are popular reading group picks. Book clubs will respond strongly to DOMINION’s richly evoked themes of war, persecution, and oppressive rule, as well as its focus on how, in pivotal moments, history can turn on the decisions of a few brave men and women.

From behind David came a sudden shouting. ‘End Nazi control! Democracy now! Up the Resistance!’ Something sailed over the heads of the crowd and crashed at Rommel’s feet. Sarah gasped. Irene and some of the other women in the crowd screamed. The steps of the Cenotaph and the bottom of Rommel’s coat were instantly streaked with red and for a moment David thought it was blood, that someone had thrown a bomb, but then he saw a paint-pot rattle down the steps onto the pavement. Rommel did not flinch, just stood where he was. Ambassador Kennedy, though, had jumped back in panic. Policemen were reaching for truncheons and pistols. A group of soldiers, rifles at the ready, stepped forward. David saw the Royal Family being hurried away. ‘Nazis out!’ someone called from the crowd. ‘We want Churchill!’

—MARILYN STASIO, NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

After a shootout claims the life of his partner in a condemned tenement building on Pearl Street, Detective John Tallow unwittingly stumbles across an apartment stacked high with guns. When examined, each weapon leads to a different, previously unsolved murder. Confronted with the sudden emergence of hundreds of unsolved homicides, Tallow discovers that he’s walked into a veritable deal with the devil. An unholy bargain that has made possible the rise of some of Manhattan’s most prominent captains of industry. A hunter who performs his deadly acts as a sacrifice to the old gods of Manhattan and who may, quite simply, be the most prolific murderer in New York City’s history.

“More fun than I’ve had out of a crime novel in a long —CHICAGO TRIBUNE time.”

The police are called to a residential street in St. John’s Wood where an unidentified young woman has been murdered. Detective Sergeant Cathal Breen believes she may be one of the many Beatles fans who regularly camp outside Abbey Road Studios. With his reputation tarnished by an inexplicable act of cowardice, this is Breen’s last chance to prove he’s up to the job. Breen is of the generation for whom reaching adulthood meant turning into one’s parents and accepting one’s place in the world. But the world around him is changing beyond recognition. Nothing illustrates the shift more than Helen Tozer, a brazen and rambunctious young policewoman assisting him with the case. Together they navigate a world on edge: where conservative tradition gives way to frightening new freedoms and troubling new crimes.

• SHE’S LEAVING HOME’s London 1968 setting, and plot set at the borders of Beatlemania, is sure to draw the attention of readers with a strong connection to a memorable pop cultural zeitgeist, and will appeal to fans of Benjamin Black, Alan Bradley, as well as the TV series Life on Mars. • With its well-rendered investigators of both genders, SHE’S LEAVING HOME will appeal to both male and female mystery/thriller enthusiasts. • William Shaw is hard at work on another literary mystery featuring Cathal Breen and Helen Tozer, set later the same year, in the London art scene, and involving Mick Jagger.

An intelligent and page-turning new thriller

from the internationally bestselling author of Killer Move.

For 100 years, the Delaware Valley State Hospital at Cold River was known as a warehouse for the criminally insane. Two decades ago, it closed its doors forever. But Luther Wade never left, and roams the Byberry catacombs beneath the city, waiting and watching. On a late winter day, a wealthy businessman is found brutally murdered in a Philadelphia park. Detectives Kevin Byrne and Jessica Balzano get the case. They soon discover a mute two-year-old girl wandering the streets with a key piece of evidence linked to a series of murders committed halfway around the world. As they investigate, they’re drawn closer and closer to the doors of Luther’s devious maze, and to the dark secrets of Cold River.

• Richard Montanari’s thrillers have been praised by the likes of James Ellroy, Tess Gerritsen, Nelson DeMille, Kinky Friedman, and more. • With suspenseful plots and commercial allure, the Byrne and Balzano series regularly hits the UK bestseller lists. • Montanari’s Byrne and Balzano series mines Philadelphia’s urbanity and charm much in the way that Dennis Lehane’s novels cover Boston and George Pelecanos explores DC.

Before I Go to Sleep meets When a Stranger Calls in Robotham’s taut and nuanced new thriller.

Marnie Logan often feels like she’s being watched: a warm breath on the back of her neck, a shadow in the corner of her eye that vanishes when she turns her head. Now her life is frozen. Her husband Daniel is missing. She can’t access his bank accounts or his life insurance. Depressed and increasingly desperate, she seeks the help of clinical psychologist Joe O’Loughlin. O’Loughlin discovers Daniel’s Big Red Book—a collage of pictures, interviews, and anecdotes chronicling Marnie’s life. The book, which Daniel intended as a surprise birthday gift, now leads to a shocking discovery. Any person who has ever crossed Marnie has paid an exacting price. And O’Loughlin may be next in line.

• From Stephen King, who selected Robotham’s Say You’re Sorry (Mulholland, 978-0-316-22124-5, 10/12) as one of his top reads of 2012, to People magazine, New York Times Book Review, Entertainment Weekly, Washington Post, and more, Robotham has received a growing level of acclaim from important U.S. reviewers. It will be published in trade paperback in 10/13. See page 77. • With intense psychological suspense, rapid-fire banter, and nail-biting action, Michael Robotham’s crime fiction compares favorably to many of the current masters of the genre—Ian Rankin, Elmore Leonard, and Lee Child. • Mulholland Books’ October 2012 publication of Robotham’s Say You’re Sorry markedly increased the readership of prior entries in the acclaimed O’Loughlin series—a trend Mulholland is set to extend with WATCHING YOU.

Ansel Adams’s photographic career.

The Sierra Club’s 29th annual outing or “High Trip” was Ansel Adams’s first as official photographer. It was during this expedition to the Canadian Rockies in 1928 that Ansel began to find his voice as a photographer. In ANSEL ADAMS IN THE CANADIAN ROCKIES, we discover images of celebrated natural sites including Mount Robson, Amethyst Lake, Drawbridge Peak, and Bennington Glacier that foreshadow the majestic mountain vistas for which Adams would become renowned. A fine chronicle of one of Ansel Adams’s earliest major photographic expeditions, and the only one he ever made outside of the United States, this book also serves as a record of Ansel’s emerging style during these crucial years in his artistic development.

“Deeply empathetic and scathingly funny.... An audacious, thought-provoking novel from one of our most talented writers....Atkinson is working at the very top of her game.”

—BOOKLIST (STARRED REVIEW)

“One of the best novels I’ve read this century....Kate Atkinson is a marvel. There aren’t enough breathless adjectives to describe LIFE AFTER LIFE: Dazzling, witty, moving, joyful, mournful, profound.”

—GILLIAN FLYNN, AUTHOR OF GONE GIRL

What if you could live again and again, until you got it right? On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born, the third child of a wealthy English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in any number of ways. Ursula’s world is in turmoil, facing the unspeakable evil of the two greatest wars in history. What power and force can one woman exert over the fate of civilization—if only she has the chance? Wildly inventive, darkly comic, startlingly poignant—this is Kate Atkinson at her absolute best. • Kate Atkinson’s breakout book—a galvanizing masterwork that vividly illustrates the lives of British gentility through two devastating world wars. • A natural for book clubs: Readers will find similarities with Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go (Vintage, 2006) and Ian McEwan’s Atonement (Anchor, 2003) in Atkinson’s stunning storytelling. • Kate Atkinson’s bestselling Jackson Brodie novels (Case Histories, One Good Turn, When Will There Be Good News?, and Started Early, Took My Dog) have sold more than 775,000 combined copies in the U.S. • Hardcover ISBN: 978-0-316-17648-4, 4/13 Praise for Started Early, Took My Dog:

—WALTER ISAACSON, AUTHOR OF STEVE JOBS

—DALLAS MORNING NEWS

Upon assuming the presidency in 1953, Dwight Eisenhower set about to make good on his campaign promise to end the Korean War. While Eisenhower was viewed by many as a doddering lightweight, behind the bland smile and simple speech was a master tactician. To end the hostilities, Eisenhower took a colossal risk by bluffing that he might use nuclear weapons against the Communist Chinese, while at the same time restraining his generals and advisors who favored the strikes. Ike’s gamble was of such magnitude that there could be but two outcomes: thousands of lives saved, or millions of lives lost. A tense, vivid, and revisionist account of a president who was then, and still is today, underestimated, IKE’S BLUFF is history at its most provocative and thrilling.

• IKE’S BLUFF hit the New York Times extended bestseller list and has sold through six hardcover printings (46,000 copies). • Widely praised by historians and journalism heavyweights for changing popular perceptions of Eisenhower’s presidency. • The subject of nuclear warfare has drawn abundant media attention as volatile countries such as Iran seek the bomb. • Hardcover ISBN: 978-0-316-09104-6, 9/12

From Dandy Don Meredith and Roger Staubach to the three mid-nineties Super Bowls won by the unbeatable trio of Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, and Emmitt Smith to T.O., Tony Romo, and the glitzy soap opera team of today, the Dallas Cowboys have been the NFL’s star franchise for more than 50 years. Love them or hate them, the Cowboys are widely celebrated as “America’s Team.” But the Cowboys have never been just about football. With their oil baron roots, overbearing, ego-driven owner, players who can’t stay out of the tabloids, a palatial new home that sets the standard for modern sports stadiums, fans as enthusiastic as cheerleaders, and cheerleaders who are as famous as the team itself, the Cowboys have become a touchstone of American popular culture. Joe Nick Patoski plumbs all these stories in a book that is a rich, sometimes scandalous, always entertaining portrait of a time, a place, and an irreplaceable team.

Praise for Jake Tapper:

“One of the last remaining journalists in America who take the responsibilities of their jobs seriously, and thus place a premium on their credibility.” —NATIONAL REVIEW

“A mind-boggling, all-too-true story of heroism, hubris, failed strategy, and heartbreaking sacrifice. If you want to understand how the war in Afghanistan went off the rails, you need to read this book.”

—JON KRAKAUER

At 5:58 a.m. on October 3, 2009, Combat Outpost Keating, located in frighteningly vulnerable terrain in Afghanistan just 14 miles from the Pakistani border, was viciously attacked. Although the 53 Americans there prevailed against nearly 400 Taliban fighters, their casualties made it the deadliest fight of the war for the U.S. that year. Four months after the battle, a Pentagon review revealed that there was no reason for the troops at Keating to have been there in the first place. Jake Tapper gives us the heartbreaking and inspiring saga of COP Keating, from its establishment to eventual destruction, introducing us to an unforgettable cast of soldiers and their families, and to a place and a war that have remained profoundly distant to most Americans. THE OUTPOST succeeds brilliantly in making a savage war real, and American courage manifest.

A teenage soldier wrestles with his conscience far from home. The fascinating characters who roam the pages of Emma Donoghue’s stories have all gone astray. They are emigrants, runaways, drifters, gold miners and counterfeiters, attorneys and slaves. They cross countless borders. They travel for love or money, incognito or under duress. The celebrated author of Room transports us from Puritan Massachusetts to Revolutionary-era New Jersey, from antebellum Louisiana to a highway in Toronto, lighting up four centuries of wanderings that have profound echoes in the present and offering us a moving meditation on restless times.

At the same time that Adolf Hitler was attempting to take over the western world, his armies were methodically seeking and hoarding the finest art treasures in Europe. The Führer had begun cataloging the art he planned to collect as well as the art he would destroy: the “degenerate” works he despised. In a race against time, at the front lines, often unarmed, a group of American and British museum directors, curators, art historians, and others, called the Monuments Men, risked their lives scouring Europe to prevent the destruction of thousands of years of culture. Focusing on the eleven-month period between D-Day and V-E Day, this acclaimed book follows six Monuments Men on their impossible mission to save the world’s great art from the Nazis.

because Rebus is back” (Entertainment Weekly) in Ian Rankin’s new bestseller.

JOHN LENNON LETTERS far surpasses all previous accounts by wives, lovers, half-siblings, ex-aides, and even the best biographers.” —WASHINGTON POST

For more than 10 years, Nina Hazlitt feared the worst about her daughter’s disappearance. The police investigation ground to a halt long ago, and her pleas to the cold case department go unheard. Until she meets the newest member of the team: former Detective John Rebus. Two more women have gone missing from the same road where Sally Hazlitt was last seen, and Rebus senses a connection. But pursuing it leads him into the crosshairs of adversaries both old and new. Rebus may have missed the thrill of the hunt, but he’s up against a powerful enemy who’s got even less to lose. STANDING IN ANOTHER MAN’S GRAVE is the triumphant return of John Rebus and a riveting story of sin, redemption, and revenge.

John Lennon was one of the greatest songwriters the world has ever known, creator of “Help!,” “Come Together,” “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” “Strawberry Fields Forever,” “Imagine,” and dozens more. But it was in his correspondence that he let his personality and poetry flow unguarded. Gathered in this handsome volume are John Lennon’s letters to family, friends, strangers, and lovers from every point in his life. Funny, informative, wise, poetic, and sometimes heartbreaking, these letters reveal a hidden side of the private genius. This collection of nearly 300 letters and postcards has been edited and annotated by Hunter Davies, whose authorized biography The Beatles (McGraw-Hill, 1968) was published to great acclaim. With unparalleled knowledge of Lennon and his contemporaries, Davies reads between the lines of the artist’s words, contextualizing them and using them to reveal the man himself.

—NEW YORK TIMES

Pete Hamill’s collected stories about Brooklyn present a New York almost lost but not forgotten. They read like messages from a vanished age, brimming with nostalgia— for the world after the war, the days of the Dodgers and Giants, and even, for some, the years of Prohibition and the Depression. THE CHRISTMAS KID is vintage Hamill. Set in the borough where he was born and raised, it is a mustread for his many fans, for all who love New York, and for anyone who seeks to understand the world today through the lens of the world that once was.

When AN UNFINISHED LIFE was originally published in 2003, it brought to light new revelations about JFK’s health, his love affairs, his brothers and father, and the path JFK would have taken in the Vietnam entanglement if he had survived. The book became a blockbuster bestseller, embraced by critics and readers as a landmark assessment of our 35th president. Now, in time for what promises to be intense media focus on Kennedy’s death and legacy, AN UNFINISHED LIFE returns with a new, strikingly incisive examination by Robert Dallek in which he further assesses JFK’s impact and hold on American culture.

million copies and achieved the status of a holiday classic—now in a handsome new paperback edition.

HERE, THERE, ELSEWHERE draws together William Least Heat-Moon’s finest short-form travel writing from the past three decades. Here we encounter him beside the Sea of Japan, sitting with men whose memories of war are both fresh and ancient; searching for the real Yoknapatawpha County; pondering the disappearance of ancient Mayan scrolls and the broader meaning of extinction; seeking rare books and lost moments on the England-Wales border; conveyed by the Delta Queen down the great Mississippi; exploring prehistoric monuments on the Orkney Islands—everywhere throwing away his compass as all true wanderers should.

’Tis the night before Christmas when a self-described curmudgeon rescues a bedraggled feline from a snowy New York City alley....Thus begins this tale of a man and his cat—or, rather, of a cat and his man—a touching, timeless, and inspiring story about the animal/human bond and the spirit of the holiday season.

• The perfect stocking stuffer for any cat lover. • Continuously in print since 1987 and a perennial holiday bestseller. • All animal lovers—and even readers who profess not to be animal lovers—will respond to this heartwarming story. • THE CAT WHO CAME FOR CHRISTMAS will also be released for the first time as an e-book, along with The Cat and the Curmudgeon and The Best Cat Ever. • Previous Back Bay paperback ISBN: 978-0-316-05821-6, 10/01

Fifteen seminal essays by “one of America’s most daring and talented writers” (Los Angeles Times Book Review)— now published in book form for the first time. Never has Wallace’s seemingly endless curiosity been more evident than in this compilation of work spanning nearly 20 years. Here Wallace turns his critical eye with equal enthusiasm toward Roger Federer and Jorge Luis Borges; Terminator 2 and The Best of the Prose Poem; the nature of being a fiction writer and the quandary of defining the essay; the best underappreciated novels and the English language’s most irksome misused words; and much more. BOTH FLESH AND NOT restores Wallace’s essays as originally written, and it includes selections from his personal vocabulary list, a compilation of unusual words and definitions.

In the 1980s, Elton John saw friend after friend, loved one after loved one, perish needlessly from AIDS. When he befriended Ryan White, a young Indiana boy ostracized because of his HIV infection, Ryan’s inspiring life and devastating death led Elton to two realizations: His own life was a mess. And he had to do something to help stop the AIDS crisis. Since then, Elton has dedicated himself to overcoming the plague and the stigma of AIDS. The Elton John AIDS Foundation has raised and donated $300 million to date to fighting the disease worldwide. LOVE IS THE CURE includes stories of Elton’s close friendships with Ryan White, Freddie Mercury, Princess Diana, Elizabeth Taylor, and others, as well as the story of the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

An aging New Yorker, a writer named Nick, feels life ebbing out of him. Then one night he meets a tantalizing young woman. Their encounter is the most strangely extraordinary of his life. Suddenly Nick’s senses are alive. He feels strong, unconquerable, beyond all inhibition and earthly morality. He indulges in life’s pleasures, pure and perverse, sublime and dangerous. But Nick’s desire to sustain his rapture leads him to a madness and a darkness far greater than he could have imagined. Writing in a lineage that includes Dante, William S. Burroughs, Charles Bukowski, Hubert Selby, Jr., and Hunter S. Thompson, Nick Tosches may be America’s last real literary outlaw.

• ME AND THE DEVIL has received praise from several high-profile figures, including Keith Richards, Johnny Depp, Peter Wolf, Tom Robbins, Jon Turturro, Anthony Bourdain, and more. • Tosches’s fans enthusiastically flock to his writing and have eagerly awaited the follow-up to his bestselling novel In The Hand of Dante (LB, 9/02). • Hardcover ISBN: 978-0-316-12097-5, 12/12

A scientist and bestselling nature writer who will go to any extreme to satisfy his curiosity, Bill Streever sets off to find out what heat really means. Let him be your guide and you’ll firewalk across hot coals and sweat it out in Death Valley, experience intense fever and fire, learn about the invention of matches and the chemistry of cooking, drink crude oil, and explore thermonuclear weapons and the hottest moment of all time—the Big Bang. Melting glaciers, warming oceans, forest fires, droughts—it’s clear that today’s world is getting hotter. But while we know the agony of a sunburn or the comfort of our winter heaters, do we really understand heat? Written in Streever’s signature crisp and entertaining prose, HEAT is an adventurous personal narrative that leaves readers with a new vision of an everyday experience—how heat works, its history, and its relationship to daily life.

Perfect. Pretty. Political. The Hellinger sisters are nothing alike—or are they?

Love can be messy, painful, and even tragic. When seen through the eyes of Simon Rich it can also be hilarious. In 30 short, sharp, ingenious stories, Rich conjures up some unforgettable romances: An unused prophylactic describes life inside a teenage boy’s wallet; God juggles the demands of his needy girlfriend with the looming deadline for earth’s creation; and a lovestruck Sherlock Holmes ignores all the clues that his girlfriend’s been cheating on him.

“Riveting from page one...AMITY & SORROW is a startlingly original, intelligent, and beautiful first novel.”

—MICHAEL CONNELLY

“Fierce and disturbing.... Riley’s debut novel is a harsh but compassionate look at nature vs. nurture through the lens of a polygamous cult.”

Two sisters sit in the backseat of a car, bound at the wrists by a strip of white cloth. Their mother, Amaranth, drives for days without pause, desperate to get away from the husband she fears will follow them to the earth’s end. Her daughters, Amity and Sorrow, cannot comprehend why they’re fleeing or fathom what exists outside their father’s polygamous compound. When an exhausted Amaranth crashes their car in rural Oklahoma, rescue arrives in the form of Bradley, a farmer not unfamiliar with loss and uncertain futures. At first mistrustful of the strange, prayerful trio, Bradley allows his abiding tolerance to get the best of him, and the four become a new kind of family. Full of achingly beautiful prose, AMITY & SORROW is a mesmerizing debut about belief, redemption, and the dark heart of extreme faith. • A riveting and emotionally suspenseful debut with the kind of ripped-from-theheadlines story that makes this a must-read for book groups. • Riley is currently working on her second novel, which will be set in a women’s internment camp on the Isle of Man during World War II. • Hardcover ISBN: 978-0-316-22088-0, 4/13

It’s the week before Christmas when a lone robber bursts into a Glasgow post office carrying an AK-47. An elderly man suddenly hands his young grandson to a stranger and helps the gunman fill bags with cash. He opens the door for the gunman and bows his head; the robber shoots the grandfather, tearing him in two. DS Alex Morrow arrives on the scene and finds that the alarm system had been disabled before the robbery. Yet none of the employees can be linked to the gunman, and the grandfather is above reproach. As Morrow searches for the killer, she uncovers a hidden, sinister political network. Soon it is chillingly clear: no corner of the city is safe, and her involvement will go deeper than she could ever have imagined.

The power to solve your problems is within you. With the right outlook, the mind’s ability to create success, happiness, and health is limitless. At least that’s the philosophy of the self-help author Eric Newborn, whose books and lectures have spawned a legion of devoted followers who swear that his ideas have saved their lives. But after the traumatic loss of his wife, Eric is left to face the darker side of his teachings. He lives as a recluse in the home he and his wife shared on Martha’s Vineyard, struggling to reconcile his worldview with his pain. A fundamental question haunts him: Why? When a probing fan forces Eric to face the world once again, he’s put on a path that might lead toward the closure he seeks. At once a stirring portrait of a soul laid bare by grief and a celebration of coincidence and the magic of real connection, THE BOOK OF WHY explores the deep powers of the heart and mind to shape the world around us, blurring the lines between loss and love, fate and free will, despair and joy.

• Reading groups will relish discussing THE BOOK OF WHY and the questions it raises about love, fate, death— even self-help culture. • THE BOOK OF WHY explores many of the same selfhelp tenets that have turned books such as The Secret (Atria, 2006) and The Power (Atria, 2010) into bestsellers and cultural forces. The intense “law of attraction” sections will appeal also to nonfiction readers. • Nicholas Montemarano is the author of the story collection If the Sky Falls (Louisiana State University Press, 2005), which was a New York Times Book Review Editor’s Choice, and one previous novel, A Fine Place (Context Books, 2002). • Hardcover ISBN: 978-0-316-18847-0, 1/13

Tasmania, where an idyllic calm is shattered by the death of a young tourist. Sarah Avery’s reckless behavior has cost her a job, her boyfriend, and the independence she desperately craves. While she is home (reluctantly) for the holidays in the tiny seaside town where her parents live, Sarah’s hopes for calm are shattered when she finds the body of a young female backpacker washed up on the shore. A year earlier, another woman went missing and hasn’t been seen since. Is there a killer in this quiet harbor? The arrival of the journalist Hall Flynn to investigate the murder sets the locals reeling. Hall, haunted by demons of his own and yearning for a fresh start, will do whatever it takes to break the story. And Sarah will do whatever it takes to keep her own secrets safe.

Hilly Wise is the son of one of the wealthiest and most powerful lawyers in the United States. When Hilly meets Savannah, a young black girl, on the beach at Cape Cod during the summer of 1952, his affection for her collides with his father’s secrets. The result shatters his family, and hers. Years later, Hilly sets out to find Savannah and to right the wrongs he helped set in motion. But can his sense of guilt, and his good intentions, overcome the forces of history, family, and identity? A multi-generational story about love and regret, the evolving struggle for racial dignity, and the crushing weight of familial obligation, WISE MEN confirms that Stuart Nadler is one of the most exciting young writers at work today.

A summer wedding stirs up trouble on both sides of the family in the newest bestseller from “the queen of the summer novel” (People).

“Hilderbrand is consistently smart and compelling.”

The Carmichaels and the Grahams have gathered on Nantucket for a happy occasion: a wedding that will unite their two families. Plans are being made according to the wishes of the bride’s late mother, who left behind The Notebook: specific instructions for every detail of her youngest daughter’s future nuptials. Everything should be falling into place for the beautiful event—but in reality, things are falling apart. While the couple-to-be are quite happy, their loved ones find their lives crumbling. In the days leading up to the wedding, love will be questioned, scandals will arise, and hearts will be broken and healed. Elin Hilderbrand takes readers on a touching journey in BEAUTIFUL DAY—into the heart of marriage, what it means to be faithful, and how we choose to honor our commitments.

IN THE LAND OF THE LIVING made me laugh

The #1 bestselling novel by J.K. Rowling —

out loud, and it also left me deeply moved.”

now in paperback!

—JOHN BURNHAM SCHWARTZ, AUTHOR OF RESERVATION ROAD AND NORTHWEST CORNER

NEW JULY 2013 ADDITION

When Barry Fairbrother dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils…. Pagford is not what it first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the town’s council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity, and unexpected revelations? Blackly comic, thought-provoking, and constantly surprising, THE CASUAL VACANCY is J.K. Rowling’s big novel about a small town.

Isidore is a brilliant man, driven in equal measure by grief at his young mother’s death, rage at his distant, abusive father, and his own fierce ambitions. When Isidore becomes a doctor, and a father himself, the cycle of grief continues. His son Leo is left behind too young, and also grows to be a doctor. The story becomes Leo’s, an alternately heartbreaking and hilarious account of his cross-country road trip with his younger brother as they try to understand their family, their relationship, and their own futures. An appealingly oddball character, angry at the world but angrier at himself, Leo yearns for love and simple satisfaction. Through his eyes we see the power of family both to destroy and to create, and the price and rewards of independence.

Jonathan Safran Foer and Nathan Englander’s

spectacular Haggadah is at last available in paperback.

NEW AMERICAN HAGGADAH has been hailed as a momentous re-envisioning through prayer, song, and ritual of one of our oldest, most timeless, most sacred stories: Moses leading the ancient Israelites out of slavery in Egypt to wander the desert for 40 years before reaching the Promised Land. Featuring a translation of the traditional text by Nathan Englander and provocative essays by several prominent Jewish writers and thinkers, the book has been received not only as a religious document but as a magnificent literary and artistic achievement. Now, after two years of patience, those readers who asked for a paperback edition have gotten their wish.

“Simply magnificent. The translation turns the English ‘side’ of the service, which has always felt clunky and awkward to me...into poetry. It’s a translation finally worthy of sharing the page with the Hebrew.”
