Sandra

#1 New York Times bestselling

author Sandra Brown makes a triumphant return to Grand Central Publishing with a heart-pounding new thriller.

PRAISE FOR SANDRA BROWN:

“A master storyteller, carefully crafting tales that keep readers on the edge of their seats.” —USA TODAY

W

hen her four-year-old daughter informs her that a sick man is in their yard, Honor Gillette rushes out to help him. But that “sick” man turns out to be Lee Coburn, the man accused of murdering seven people the night before. Dangerous, desperate, and armed, he promises Honor that she and her daughter won’t be hurt as long as she does everything he asks. She has no choice but to accept him at his word. But Honor soon discovers that even those close to her can’t be trusted. Coburn claims that her beloved late husband possessed something extremely valuable that places Honor and her daughter in grave danger. Coburn is there to retrieve it—at any cost. From FBI offices in Washington, DC, to a rundown shrimp boat in coastal Louisiana, Coburn and Honor run for their lives from the very people sworn to protect them, and unravel a web of corruption and depravity that threatens not only them, but the fabric of our society. ●

Brown LETHAL

Her instinct was to fight him, to scratch and claw and kick in an effort to prevent, or at least to delay, what seemed to be the inevitable. But because she feared Emily’s fate if she didn’t comply with him, she did as ordered and clasped her hands together at the small of her back, sandwiching them between her and the wall. He leaned in close. She turned her head aside, but he placed his hand beneath her chin and brought it back around. Speaking in a whisper, he said,“You see how easy it would be for me to hurt you?”

PATRIC

Excerpt: She looked into his eyes and nodded numbly. “Well,SANDRA I won’tBROWN hurt you. I promise not lives in Texas. to hurt you or your kid. But you gotta do everything I say. Okay? Have we got a deal?” She might have derived some level of comfort from the promise, even if she didn’t believe it. But she suddenly realized who he was, and that sent a bolt of terror through her. Breathlessly, she rasped, “You’re... you’re the man who shot all those people last night.”

(GCP, 10/03), which rocketed to #1 on the New York Times bestseller list, remaining there for 24 weeks. To date, it has sold over one million copies in hardcover and paperback combined.

✖ Stupid White Men (Regan, 2002) was a #1 New York Times bestseller that remained on the list for over one year. It sold close to one million copies, and the British Book Awards named it “Book of the Year.”

Life Itself A Memoir ROGER EBERT

World-famous film critic and television host Roger Ebert delivers one of the most eagerly anticipated memoirs of the year. Roger Ebert has been reviewing films for the Chicago Sun-Times since 1967. The first film critic ever to win a Pulitzer Prize, he has been a fixture on television for over 30 years, co-hosting Siskel & Ebert at the Movies until Gene Siskel’s death in 1999, and then with Richard Roper until 2006. Then, complications from thyroid-cancer treatment resulted in the loss of his ability to eat, drink, or speak. But with the loss of his voice, Ebert has only become a more prolific and influential writer. And now, for the first time, he tells the full, dramatic story of his life and career. He chronicles his loves, losses, and obsessions; his recovery from alcoholism, his marriage, his politics, and his spiritual beliefs. He also provides details about his colorful newspaper friends, his friendships with Oprah Winfrey, Studs Terkel, and others, insights into numerous movie stars, and his perspective on such influential directors as Ingmar Bergman, Martin Scorsese, and Werner Herzog.

Excerpt from LIFE ITSELF: When I mentioned in my blog that I can no longer eat, drink or speak, a reader wrote: “That sounds so sad. Do you miss it?” Not so much really. Not anymore. The new reality took shape slowly. Understand that I was never told that after surgery I might lose the ability to eat, drink and speak. Eating and drinking were not mentioned, and it was said that after the first surgery I might be able to go back to work on television. Success in such surgery is not unheard of. It didn’t happen that way. The second surgery was also intended to restore my speaking ability. It seemed to hold together for awhile, but then, in surgeon-speak, also “fell apart.” What’s sad about not eating is the experience, whether at a family reunion or at midnight by yourself in a greasy spoon under the L tracks. The loss of dining, not the loss of food. Unless I’m alone, it doesn’t involve dinner if it doesn’t involve talking. The food and drink I can do without easily. The jokes, gossip, laughs, arguments and memories I miss. I ran in crowds where anyone was likely to start reciting poetry on a moment’s notice. Me too. But not me anymore. So yes, it’s sad. Maybe that’s why writing has become so important to me. You don’t realize it, but we’re at dinner right now.

Secret Obsession KIMBERLA LAWSON ROBY

A sister’s jealousy pushes a family to the edge and exposes life-changing secrets in this new novella from New York Times bestseller Kimberla Lawson Roby, author of the acclaimed Reverend Curtis Black series. Paige Donahue has always resented her sister, Camille. As children, Camille got the good grades, friends, and their parents’ love, while Paige received hurtful criticism and no real affection. Now, as adults, Camille lives in a gorgeous home with her husband, Pierce, and their two beautiful children, while Paige is stuck in a small condo she can barely pay for. But enough is enough, and soon—with seeds of doubt planted in Camille’s and Pierce’s minds—Paige’s plan of stealing her brother-in-law begins to work perfectly. Until Pierce makes a stunning decision and drives Paige to an even more desperate scheme. ●●

Kimberla Lawson Roby has written seven back-to-back New York Times bestsellers, including The Best of Everything (William Morrow, 1/09), Sin No More (William Morrow, 2/08), and the novella One in a Million (William Morrow, 6/08). The author’s next installment in her Reverend Curtis Black series, The Reverend’s Wife, will be published in GCP hardcover in 5/12. Love, Honor, and Betray (GCP, 1/11) hit #1 on the Black Christian Book Company’s bestseller list its first week of publication, and was a New York Times extended list hardcover bestseller.

The Orchard A Memoir

THERESA WEIR

“A hypnotic tale of place, people, and of Midwestern family roots that run deep, stubbornly hidden, and equally menacing….Like a reflecting pool, touch the surface and watch the ripples carry you away.” —Jamie Ford, author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

THE ORCHARD is the story of a street-smart city girl who must adapt to a new life on an apple farm after she falls in love with Adrian Curtis, the golden boy of a prominent local family whose lives and orchards seem to be cursed. Married only three months, young Theresa finds life with Adrian on the farm far more difficult and dangerous than she suspected. Rejected by her husband’s family as an outsider, she slowly educates herself about the isolated world of farming, even as she falls more deeply in love with her husband, a man she at first hardly knew. But when a codling moth epidemic threatens to irreparably destroy the orchard, that fragile new love will be tested as she and Adrian fight to save the land that has been in his family for generations.

“What time do you get off work?”

ADVERTISING

I was already walking away. His words stopped me. At the same time, my mind struggled to figure out what he wanted, what he was really after. I wasn’t his type. I knew I wasn’t his type. “Never,” I heard myself saying. “I never get off.” He laughed as if my answer was the most entertaining thing he’d heard in years. And maybe it was. “I can’t believe you were so friendly to him,” my uncle said two hours later, once all of the customers had left, including Adrian Curtis. “You don’t want to get mixed up with a guy like that.”

“How am I getting mixed up with him? I served him a couple beers.” “I saw the way he was looking at you. He’ll be back.” “He’s a farmer.” Not that I had anything against farmers, but I couldn’t see myself hanging out with one. “He won’t be back.” “Wait and see,” my uncle said.

“I

bet a lot of you are probably thinking, Ellen (or Mrs. DeGeneres, depending on how well we know one another) why are you writing another book after already proving yourself by penning two wildly, wildly successful tomes? Well the truth is, since I wrote my last book a lot has happened in my life. I got married. I got my own talk show. I started a record label. I became a CoverGirl®. I won an Academy Award.* I won the Boston Marathon.** I started a compost heap.*** And I was knighted by the Queen of England.**** I’ve experienced a whole lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you’ll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I’ve put together for you in this book. I think you’ll find I’ve left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I’m saying is, let us begin, shall we?

The Best of Me NICHOLAS SPARKS

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nicholas Sparks returns with a story of star-crossed love, shattered dreams, and last-chance redemption. THE BEST OF ME is the heart-rending story of two small-town former high school sweethearts from opposite sides of the tracks. Now middle-aged, they’ve taken wildly divergent paths, but neither has lived the life they imagined…and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever altered their world. When they are both called back to their hometown for the funeral of the mentor who once gave them shelter, they will be forced to confront the choices each has made, and ask whether love can truly rewrite the past.

Robert Ludlum’s The Ares Decision TM

KYLE MILLS

The eagerly-awaited new installment in Robert Ludlum’s bestselling Covert-One series.

With U.S. intelligence agencies wracked by internal power struggles and paralyzed by bureaucracy, the President was forced to establish his own clandestine group—Covert-One— selected from the very best operatives America has to offer. It is only activated as a last resort, when the threat is on a global scale and time is running out. In northern Uganda, an American Special Forces team is wiped out by a group of normally peaceful farmers. Video of the attack shows even women and children possessing almost supernatural speed and strength, consumed with a rage that makes them immune to pain, fear, and all but the most devastating injuries. Covert-One’s top operative, Army microbiologist Colonel Jon Smith, is sent to investigate the attack and finds evidence of the parasitic infection. This time, though, it’s different. The infection is purposely being kept alive and the director of Iranian Intelligence is in Uganda trying to make a deal for a biological weapon to unleash on the West. As Smith and his team are cut off from all outside support, they begin to suspect that forces much more powerful than the Iranians are in play—forces that can be traced to Washington itself. 978-0-446-69908-2 • $25.99 ($28.99 in Canada) Fiction • 6 x 9 • 450 pgs • Territories: U.S., Canada, and Open Market

Trust Me, I’m Dr. Ozzy Advice From Rock’s Ultimate Survivor Ozzy Osbourne with Chris Ayres

Based on his ongoing columns in Rolling Stone and The Sunday Times of London, the Prince of Darkness embraces his status as a medical miracle to shed light on his superhuman ability to stay alive. Wondering if science could explain how he survived his 40-year avalanche of drugs and alcohol, Ozzy Osbourne had his entire DNA mapped in 2010. The “Full Ozzy Genome” contained variants that scientists had never before encountered and the findings were presented at the prestigious TEDMED Conference in San Diego. The Sunday Times of London appointed Ozzy its star health advice columnist, arguing that his multiple near-death experiences, 40-year history of drug abuse, and extreme hypochondria qualified him more than any other for the job. The column was an overnight hit, and was quickly picked up by Rolling Stone to give it an audience of millions. Part humor, part memoir, and part bad advice, TRUST ME, I’M DR. OZZY finds Ozzy answering readers’ (and celebrities’) questions with his outrageous wit and surprising wisdom, digging deep into his past to tell memoir-style survival stories never published before—as well as supplying charts, sidebars, recipes, and guidance that no sane human being should follow. ●●

TRUST ME, I’M DR. OZZY will be a natural expansion of the column, including some of its best material, as well as a lot of new writing. I Am Ozzy, Osbourne’s first GCP hardcover (978-0-446-56989-7, 1/10), debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list and sold more than 146,000 copies. It was an instant bestseller in the UK when it was published in 10/09 to incredible reviews. The trade paperback edition was published by GCP in 1/11. Upon publication of his first hardcover, Ozzy embarked on a● massive, countrywide tour, selling thousands of books at the events. He is fully committed to promoting TRUST ME, I’M DR. OZZY in any way possible.

Red Alert How China’s Growing Prosperity Threatens the American Way of Life Stephen Leeb with Greg Dorsey

From Wall Street expert and author of the prophetic bestsellers The Oil Factor and The Coming Economic Collapse comes a frightening wake-up call on China’s drive to overtake the U.S. as the premier economic power. With startling statistics, charts, and in-depth research showing how China continues to expand its economic reach, RED ALERT is a provocative and frightening examination of China’s growing political, economic, and social power and the threat it poses to the Western world. The Wall Street Journal just proclaimed that China now has the second largest economy in the world—second only to the U.S. Did you know that... • China is quietly purchasing and storing vast amounts of the Earth’s remaining oil and gold? • China is a major player on Wall Street and controls billions in American investments? • While the U.S. has been fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, China has been focusing its substantial muscle on upgrading its infrastructure and industrial strength? • The Chinese control most of the world’s rare earth metals, all of which are essential for cell phones, computers, and electronic devices. • The Chinese have been developing suspiciously strong economic ties in many growing African nations. And this is just the beginning. 978-0-446-57623-9 • $27.99 ($29.99 in Canada) Business • 6 x 9 • 288 pgs • Territories: World ●●

John Puller is a combat vet and now the best military investigator in the U.S. Army’s Criminal Investigative Division. Puller is a loner with few possessions and fewer friends by preference, but he has an indomitable spirit and an unstoppable motor for finding the truth. Puller is called out on a case in a remote, rural area far from any military outpost. Someone has stumbled onto a brutally murdered family at their home. The dead husband was in the army and the wife worked for a Pentagon contractor. The local homicide detective, a woman with personal demons of her own, clashes with Puller over the investigation. As Puller digs through deception after deception, he realizes that absolutely nothing he’s seen so far in this small town, and no one in it, are what they seem. He is truly one man against an overwhelming force. ●

Everything I Know About Business I Learned from the Grateful Dead The Ten Most Innovative Lessons From A Long, Strange Trip BARRY BARNES, PHD FOREWORD BY JOHN PERRY BARLOW

A pithy and prescriptive book that reveals the Grateful Dead as visionary geniuses in creating customer value, promoting social networking, and developing strategic business plans. The Grateful Dead, one of the most popular bands of all time, still enjoys incredible relevance today. But let’s admit it—its members weren’t exactly poster boys for corporate America. Or were they? For an extraordinary 30 years, the Dead improvised a unique business plan—making huge profits and pioneering practices that have been subsequently embraced by the corporate world. Now, professor and lifelong Deadhead Barry Barnes shares the 10 most innovative business lessons from the band’s illustrious career, including: • creating and delivering superior customer value • implementing a flat management structure • giving away product for free to increase demand Barnes shows how the Dead were masters of “strategic improvisation”—the ability to adapt to changing times—and that their success lay in their commitment to relentless variation. EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT BUSINESS I LEARNED FROM THE GRATEFUL DEAD teaches readers how they did it—and what any business can learn from their long, strange trip.

Gideon’s Corpse

DOUGLAS PRESTON AND LINCOLN CHILD

Bestselling authors Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child return with their second book in an all-new series featuring the unforgettable character Gideon Crew. After escaping death in Gideon’s Sword, nuclear scientist and ex-thief Gideon Crew wants to return to his cabin in New Mexico and go fishing. Fate intervenes: a colleague of Gideon’s, Reed Chalker, has taken an innocent family hostage and is ranting about government conspiracies. Gideon tries to talk him down, but Chalker kills one of the hostages and is gunned down by a SWAT team. At the scene of the shooting, they discover Chalker was exposed to a massive dose of radiation poisoning— and that he is part of a terrorist cell about to detonate a stolen nuke in either Washington, DC, or New York. Gideon reluctantly agrees to join the investigation. But as he follows their increasingly dangerous and bizarre trail, he finds himself framed as one of the terrorists himself. Forced on the run and pursued by half a dozen law enforcement agencies, the only way to prove his innocence is to find the real terrorists and prevent their attack. But as he nears the truth, he finds it lies much closer to home—and is even more horrifying than nuclear Armageddon.

Agent 6

TOM ROB SMITH

Tom Rob Smith—the bestselling, award-winning author of Child 44 and one of the most critically acclaimed new writers of our time—returns with a thrilling and provocative new novel. How far would you go to solve a crime against your family? It is 1965. Leo Demidov, a former secret police agent, is forbidden to travel with his wife and daughters from Moscow to New York. They are part of a “Peace Tour,” meant to foster closer relations between the two Cold War enemies. On the tour, Leo’s family is caught up in a conspiracy and betrayal that ends in tragedy. In the horrible aftermath, Leo demands one thing: that he be allowed to investigate and find the attacker that struck at the heart of his family on foreign soil. From the highest levels of the Soviet government, he is told No, that is impossible. Leo is haunted by the question: what happened in New York? In a surprising, epic story that spans decades and continents—from 1950s Moscow to 1960s America to the Soviet war in Afghanistan in the 1980s—Leo’s long pursuit of justice will force him to confront everything he ever thought he knew about his country, his family, and himself.

PRAISE FOR TOM ROB SMITH:

JERRY BAUER

AGENT 6 is the concluding novel in the Child 44 trilogy.

TOM ROB SMITH lives in London, England.

M A R K E T I N G C A M PA I G N

“The hero of Tom Rob Smith’s sensational debut thriller, Child 44, seems to have stepped out of the pages of a classic by Hammett or Chandler.... The clues to his elaborate mystery are unveiled in sudden bursts, with another doll-like surprise nesting just beneath the surface of the latest —Entertainment Weekly revelation.” “An explosive thriller—fueled by blind love, fear of rejection, and two death-defying journeys…. Smith’s breathlessly paced The Secret Speech goes even further than last year’s acclaimed Child 44.” —USA TODAY

“In Smith’s hands [the] scenes attain a pulse of exhilaration worthy of Dickens by way of Conrad…[and] are rendered with passionate and indelible precision…with a broadening of moral scope and thematic richness.”

Robert Ludlum’s™ The Janson Command PAUL GARRISON

The first book in an exciting new series featuring Paul Janson, the hero of Robert Ludlum’s New York Times bestseller The Janson Directive.

THE

JANSON COMMAND A NEW JANSON NOVEL BY

PAUL GARRISON (COVER●NOT●FINAL)

978-0-446-56450-2 • $27.99 ($30.99 in Canada) Fiction • 6 x 9 • 450 pgs • Territories: U.S., Canada, and Open Market Hachette Audio: Unabr. CD: 978-1-60788-643-3 • $39.98/$49.98

Reformed from his days of assassination and international conspiracy, Paul Janson has a new mission and a new partner. Working with kickass sharpshooter Jessica Kincaid, he helps other disenchanted covert-operatives to be rehabilitated and create new lives. He also accepts independent jobs, but only missions he believes will contribute to the greater good. Janson takes the job to rescue a doctor who has been kidnapped by West African rebels during an ambush of an American oil service boat. At first, it appears that the doctor’s life was spared in order to treat the rebels’ wounded leader Ferdinand Poe, a beacon of hope against a cruel dictator. But when the mission goes haywire, Janson realizes he’s in the middle of something much bigger. The puppet dictator has anonymous backers with designs on the oil reserves of this struggling nation—and Janson may find he’s been fighting for the wrong side the whole time.

“Reading a Ludlum novel is like watching a James Bond film…slickly paced…all consuming.” —Entertainment Weekly “Garrison has a knack for grabbing the reader by the —Houston Chronicle throat.”

The Last Starmaker TOMMY MOTTOLA

Legendary music mogul Tommy Mottola—who discovered, developed, and launched superstar Mariah Carey—tells the story of the modern music industry through the eyes of the man who made it all happen. One of the most powerful, famous executives in the history of the music industry, Tommy Mottola was there from Elvis to the iPod. He participated in the explosion of popular music when it had a personal, individual impact and a global, cultural influence on everything from fashion and advertising to politics and race. Now, in THE LAST STARMAKER, Tommy recounts how a street kid from the Bronx became the music industry’s most creative and successful CEO. For the first time, Mottola will lay bare the facts behind the most sensational aspects of his life. He reveals what it was like to be married to Mariah Carey, how Michael Jackson would call him in the wee hours begging Tommy to swear they’d sell 100 million records, his fascinating dealings with countless icons, and how he was sitting at the top when the music business imploded. ●●

The Letter My Journey Through Love, Loss, & Life MARIE TILLMAN

A love story and an inspirational tale of recovery and self-discovery, Marie Tillman opens up for the first time about her marriage to former-NFL star Pat Tillman, and her journey to rebuild her life after his death. In 2003, Pat Tillman, while serving in the U.S. Army, hastily wrote a “just in case” letter to his wife, Marie. For months it sat on top of their bedroom dresser, sealed and ever-present.  Then, in April 2004, Marie’s worst nightmare came true when she learned that Pat had been killed in Afghanistan.  In the days  following his death,  it was Pat’s letter that kept her going. Now, in THE LETTER, Marie recalls for the first time how she and Pat fell in love, his harrowing decision to join the army after 9/11, and the devastating day when she learned he’d been killed.  She describes withdrawing from the public spotlight and slowly rebuilding her life, a journey that saw her take refuge in a fast-paced career, travel solo throughout Argentina, and finally find her footing in Los Angeles, where she decided to become the director of the Pat Tillman  Foundation. Filled with the wisdom Marie gained along the way, THE LETTER is a deeply moving account of loss and recovery, and an inspiring story for anyone whose life has taken an unexpected hard turn—and who struggles to get back on the right path. ●● (COVER NOT FINAL)

The story of Pat Tillman continues to fascinate as the war in Afghanistan rages on. Jon Krakauer’s book Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman (Doubleday, 9/09) was an instant New York Times bestseller, and the 9/09 documentary The Tillman Story won rave reviews and considerable media attention. With the exception of a recent Today show appearance to promote the Pat Tillman Foundation, Marie Tillman has remained mostly out of the public spotlight since her husband’s death. With renewed requests for interviews already rolling in, including a package offer from ABC, Marie is now prepared to return to the public eye to● publicize the book. THE LETTER will appeal to  readers of Joan Didion’s national bestseller The Year of Magical Thinking (Knopf, 10/05), Carole Radziwill’s What Remains (Scribner, 9/05), and Gail Caldwell’s Let’s Take the Long Way Home (Random House, 8/10). Marie Tillman is the founder of the Pat Tillman Foundation, a nonprofit organization that has invested more than $4 million in● education since its inception. In 2008, she began Tillman Military Scholars, an initiative that helps a select group of veterans, active service members, and their dependents fulfill their academic dreams.

Pure Julianna Baggott

In the tradition of Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games and Justin Cronin’s The Passage, bestselling author Julianna Baggott delivers the first volume in a thrilling new post-apocalyptic trilogy. Sixteen-year-old Pressia barely remembers the Detonations or much about her life during the Before. Like Pressia, most of the survivors have the permanent burns, scars, and objects fused to their bodies. At age 16, everyone is required to turn themselves over to the militia to either be trained as a soldier, or, if they are too damaged and weak, to be used as live targets. Uncertain of her fate, Pressia is on the run. But there are also those who escaped unmarked. The Pures were safely inside the Dome when the Detonations occurred, and have stayed there ever since. While they are protected and pure, their shelter is a cocoon of intensely rigid social order. Partridge, the son of one of the most influential men in the Dome, longs for his mother, who didn’t make it inside and is presumed dead. When he learns there is a chance she may still be alive, he will risk his life to leave the Dome and find her. And when Pressia and Partridge cross paths, they quickly realize they need each other to accomplish their missions…and to survive. ●●

Buy High, Sell Higher Why Buy-and-Hold Is Dead and Other Surprising Investing Lessons from CNBC’s “The Liquidator” JOE TERRANOVA

A stunning, counter-intuitive guide to investing from market strategist and CNBC’s Fast Money panelist Joe Terranova.

Joe Terranova thinks you should be making a lot more money. Why? The markets have changed radically in recent years, and you’re probably still investing with techniques initially developed during the Great Depression or the Go-Go Nineties. As regular viewers of CNBC’s Fast Money know, Terranova is a master at demystifying the forces that drive today’s markets. He is also a gifted teacher when it comes to giving Average Joes the insights to trade like the pros. In BUY HIGH, SELL HIGHER, he explains why the buy-low/ sell-high model is broken. Instead, he shows investors how to manage their portfolios based on a series of key metrics that determine whether the market is confident or pessimistic about a stock. The book will mix trading floor wisdom (“Never trade on a Monday morning”) with specific, actionable strategies that will help you to maximize winners, minimize losers, and build a portfolio that produces outsize returns. You’ll learn how to pinpoint the moment you should enter and exit a position. You’ll also learn during what days and months to steer clear of certain sectors, and what market volume can tell you about whether to buy, sell, or hold a position. With the extraordinary market volatility of the last few years, BUY HIGH, SELL HIGHER is destined to become the musthave playbook for novice and seasoned investors alike.

Death of a Kingfisher M.C. BEATON

Hamish Macbeth investigates a murderer who’s come home to nest in the newest mystery from bestselling author M.C. Beaton.

When Scotland is hit by the recession, the Scottish people are forced to come up with inventive ways to lure tourists to their sleepy towns. The quaint village of Braikie doesn’t have much to offer, other than a place of rare beauty called Buchan’s Wood, which was bequeathed to the town. The savvy local tourist director renames the woods “The Fairy Glen,” and has brochures printed with a beautiful photograph of a kingfisher rising from a pond on the cover. It isn’t long before coach tours begin to arrive. But just as the town’s luck starts to turn, a kingfisher is found hanging from a branch in the woods with a noose around its neck. As a wave of vandalism threatens to ruin Braikie forever, the town turns to Police Constable Hamish Macbeth—but it isn’t long before his investigation turns from animal cruelty to murder. ●●

Monday Mornings SANJAY GUPTA, MD

New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sanjay Gupta makes his fiction debut with this riveting and fast-paced story about the life and death decisions made by a team of dedicated surgeons. Every time surgeons operate, they’re betting their skills can beat a brain tumor, a faulty heart valve, a clogged artery. Sometimes, they’re wrong. At Chelsea General, surgeons answer for bad outcomes at the Morbidity and Mortality conference, known as M & M. This extraordinary peek behind the curtain into what is considered the most secret meeting in all of medicine is the backdrop for Sanjay Gupta’s first novel. MONDAY MORNINGS follows the lives of five surgeons as they push the limits of their abilities and confront their personal and professional failings, often in front of their peers at M & M. A practicing surgeon himself, Gupta provides a unique look inside the high-pressure world of medicine, and paints a vivid picture of the method by which surgeons often learn—through their mistakes. ●●

The Gilly Salt Sisters Tiffany Baker

The author of the New York Times bestselling The Little Giant of Aberdeen County returns with a magic-tinged tale of dreams, family secrets, and betrayals on a New England salt farm.

In the isolated Cape Cod village of Prospect, the Gilly sisters are as different as can be. Jo, a fierce and quiet loner, is devoted to the mysteries of her family’s salt farm, while Claire is popular, pretty, and yearns to flee the salt at any cost. But the Gilly land hides a dark legacy that proves impossible to escape. Although the community half-suspects the Gilly sisters might be witches, it doesn’t stop Whit Turner, the town’s wealthiest bachelor, from forcing his way into their lives. It’s Jo who first steals Whit’s heart, but Claire—heartbroken over her high school sweetheart—who marries him. Years later, estranged from her family, Claire finds herself thrust back onto the farm with the last person she would have chosen: her husband’s pregnant mistress. Suddenly, alliances change, old loves return, and new battle lines are drawn. When the smoke finally clears, what the Gilly sisters learn about each other and the land around them will not only change each of their lives forever, it will also alter Gilly history for good. ●●

Kasher in the Rye A Delightful Romp Through Childhood Tragedy, Institutional Living, and Teenage Drug Addiction! Moshe Kasher

In the spirit of Augusten Burroughs, Chelsea Lately comedian Moshe Kasher details his  outrageously dysfunctional early years in this hilarious memoir.

Moshe Kasher is lucky to be alive. He started using drugs at age 12. At that point, he had already been in psychoanalysis for eight years. By the time he was 15, he had been in and out of several mental institutions, drifting from therapy to rehab to arrest. But this is not  an “eye opener” to the horrors of addiction. It’s a hilarious memoir about the absurdity of it all. When he was a young boy, Kasher’s mother took him on a vacation to the West Coast. Well, it was more like an abduction. She stole him away from his father, and they moved to Oakland, California. That’s where the real fun begins, in the war zone of Oakland’s Public Schools. Those early years read like part Nick Flynn, part David Sedaris, with a touch of Jim Carroll…but a lot more Jewish. In fact, Kasher later spends time in a Brooklyn Hasidic community. Brutally honest and laugh-out-loud funny, Kasher’s first literary endeavor finds humor in the most horrifying situations. ●●

Arguably Selected Essays by Christopher Hitchens Christopher Hitchens

A brilliant collection of some of the finest recent writings by “America’s foremost rhetorical pugilist” (Village Voice), the author’s first since 2004.

The first new book of essays by Christopher Hitchens since 2004, ARGUABLY offers an indispensable key to understanding the passionate and skeptical spirit of one of our most dazzling writers, widely admired for the clarity of his style, a result of his disciplined and candid thinking. Topics range from ruminations on why Charles Dickens was among the best of writers and the worst of men to the haunting science fiction of J.G. Ballard; from the enduring legacies of Thomas Jefferson and George Orwell to the persistent agonies of antiSemitism and jihad. Hitchens even looks at the recent financial crisis and argues for the enduring relevance of Karl Marx. The book forms a bridge between the two parallel enterprises of culture and politics. It reveals how politics justifies itself by culture, and how the latter prompts the former. In this fashion, ARGUABLY burnishes Christopher Hitchens’s credentials as—to quote Christopher Buckley—our “greatest living essayist in the English language.” ●●

“One of the most prolific, as well as brilliant, journalists of our time.” —Observer (London) “With the possible exception of Tom Wolfe and Maureen Dowd’s, Christopher Hitchens’ marvelous byline is the most archly kinetic in current-day American letters….Hitchens represents a dying breed of public intellectual whose voice matters precisely because it can’t be easily pigeonholed or ignored.” —Douglas Brinkley, Los Angeles Times

“There are few people in this country who bring such a literary perspective to political and policy controversies.” —David Brooks, New York Times

“Christopher Hitchens, the polemical polymath, is to modern American discourse what Lenny Bruce was to comedy. He changed the game, and in so doing forced us to examine our core beliefs.” —Timothy Egan, New York Times

REPUBLIC, LOST A Declaration for Independence Lawrence Lessig

Harvard Law School professor Lawrence Lessig investigates the most vexing problem in American democracy: how money corrupts our nation’s politics, and the critical campaign to stop it. In an era of ballooning corporate campaign expenditures, unleashed by the Supreme Court in Citizens United, trust in our government is at an all time low. More than ever before, Americans believe that money buys results in Congress and that our Republic has been lost. Using examples that resonate as powerfully on the Right as on the Left, REPUBLIC, LOST not only makes clear how the economy of influence defeats the will of the people, but offers cogent strategies to correct our course – from a constitutional convention to a Regent Presidency. A onetime friend of Barack Obama, Lessig, a professor of law at Harvard, is as critical of the president and the Democratic Party as he is of Republicans. Both have allowed the core institution of our democracy to become little more than a shill for the most powerful moneyed interests in our Republic. America may be divided, argues Lessig, but we must recognize that corruption is our common enemy, and we must find a way to fight against it. 978-0-446-57643-7 • $26.99 ($29.99 in Canada) Politics • 6 x 9 • 320 pgs • Territories: World

Professor Lawrence Lessig is one of America’s foremost intellectuals, and an expert on ethics. He is the author of six books on the law and technology, including Remix (Penguin, 10/08), Free Culture (Penguin, 3/05), The Future of Ideas (Random House, 9/01), and Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace (Basic Books, 11/99). Lessig is the Director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University, and a Professor at Harvard Law School. Prior to returning to Harvard, Lessig was a Professor of Law at Stanford Law School and the University of Chicago Law School. Lessig has clerked for Justice Antonin Scalia on the United States Supreme Court and Judge Richard Posner on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. More than ever, Americans are concerned about the influence of money on American political life. The Supreme Court’s recent Citizens United decision gave corporations unprecedented power to spend in federal elections. That decision—and the flood of private money it has unleashed—have galvanized calls for reform.

Praise for Lawrence Lessig: “Lawrence Lessig gets things changed not for the benefit of corporations but to unleash the creative potential of ordinary people in a digital age.” —The Guardian (UK) “A manifesto that shakes you up.”

The Limit Life and Death on the Grand Prix Circuit MICHAEL CANNELL

The true story of the first American to win the Grand Prix title, with vivid accounts of the glamorous—and deadly—world of motor racing circa 1961.

THE LIMIT tells the true story of Phil Hill, a lowly California mechanic who, defying all expectations, became the first American to win the Grand Prix championship. In the tradition of Seabiscuit and The Right Stuff, Cannell’s high-octane narrative evokes the lives of the daredevils who tempted fate each Sunday by driving well over 150 mph without benefit of seat belts or roll bars. Written with the pacing of a novel, THE LIMIT pits Hill against his Ferrari teammate, German Count Wolfgang Von Trips, as they jockey for the top spot throughout the 1961 season, culminating in one of the deadliest races in Grand Prix history. THE LIMIT captures a distinct moment when men the world over were driven to push the boundaries of the possible. From the stink of grease-smothered pits to the long anxious nights in lonely European hotels, THE LIMIT promises to be one of the most thrilling reads this season.   ●●

Man Seeks God My Flirtations with the Divine Eric Weiner

The author of the bestselling The Geography of Bliss returns with this funny, illuminating chronicle of a globe-spanning spiritual quest to find a faith that fits.

chuck berman

After a health scare leaves him reeling, Eric Weiner—an atheist by default—sets out on a worldwide search for an experience of the divine. Propelled by the confrontation with his own mortality and questions about the best way to raise his daughter, Weiner travels to Nepal, where he meditates with Tibetan lamas and a guy named Wayne; to Turkey, where he whirls (poorly) with Sufi dervishes; to China where he attempts to unblock his chi; to Israel where he studies Kabbalah, sans Madonna; and to Las Vegas, where he has a close encounter with Raelians (followers of the world’s largest UFO-based religion). Weiner’s journey takes place at a time when more Americans than ever—nearly one in three—are choosing a new faith. At each stop along the way, Weiner tackles our most pressing spiritual questions: Where do we come from? What happens when we die? How should we live our lives? Why do socks abscond? With his trademark wit and warmth, Weiner leaves no stone unturned. 978-0-446-53947-0 • $26.99 ($29.99 in Canada) Nonfiction • 6 x 9 • 352 pgs • Territories: World

Would It Kill You to Stop Doing That? A Modern Guide to Manners HENRY ALFORD

From acclaimed humorist, author, and Vanity Fair columnist Henry Alford comes a laugh-outloud guide to modern manners.

JOHN WOO

A few years ago, humorist and journalist Henry Alford found himself “reverse-apologizing”: offering apologies for other people, on their behalf, when they failed to do so themselves. Ever since, he’s realized he needed to take a closer look at manners—his own, and others’. In WOULD IT KILL YOU TO STOP DOING THAT? he interviews experts both likely (Miss Manners, Tim Gunn) and unlikely (a former prisoner, an army sergeant). He volunteers himself as a tour guide for foreigners visiting New York City, and as an online etiquette coach for his friends. He travels to Japan. He teaches Miss Manners how to steal a cab. He designates the World’s Most Annoying Bride. Providing answers to questions like, Why shouldn’t you ask a cabdriver where’s he’s from?, and Why is posting baby pictures on Facebook a fraught activity?, this hilarious and non-elitist book looks past the standard “dos” and “don’ts” of good form, in search of ways we can treat each other better. ●●

Eminent Outlaws The Gay Writers Who Changed America Christopher Bram

Draper Shreve

A biographical history of the dynamic gay writers who transformed American culture, by acclaimed novelist Christopher Bram.

978-0-446-56313-0 • $27.99 ($29.99 in Canada) Biography • 6 x 9 • 320 pgs • Territories: U.S., Canada, and Open Market

In the years following World War II, a small group of gay writers established themselves as literary power players, fueling cultural changes that would resonate for decades to come, and transforming the American literary landscape forever. In EMINENT OUTLAWS, novelist Christopher Bram brilliantly chronicles the rise of gay consciousness in American writing. Beginning with a first wave of major gay literary figures—Tennessee Williams, Gore Vidal, Truman Capote, Allen Ginsberg, and James Baldwin—he shows how (despite criticism and occasional setbacks) these pioneers set the stage for new generations of gay writers to build on what they had begun: Christopher Isherwood, Edmund White, and Tony Kushner, among them. Weaving together the crosscurrents, feuds, and subversive energies that provoked these writers to greatness, EMINIENT OUTLAWS is a rich and essential work. With keen insights, it takes readers through 50 years of momentous change: from a time when being a homosexual was a crime in 49 states and into an age of same-sex marriage and the end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. ●●

Also Available as an eBook.

●●

An eminent gay novelist himself, Christopher Bram is part of the literary tradition he writes about. He was a firsthand witness in the gay literary world of the 1980s and 1990s. His novel, Father of Frankenstein (Dutton, 1/95), was made into the Academy Awardwinning film Gods and Monsters. Many of the figures Bram writes about are as famous as personalities as they are as writers. Nevertheless, this remarkable story has never been told before. EMINENT OUTLAWS is an engaging narrative that does for postwar gay life and writing what Founding Brothers (Knopf 10/00) by Joseph Ellis did for the Founding Fathers or what When Everything Changed (LB, 10/09) by Gail Collins did for 50 years of feminism. It should win a wide audience not only with gay readers but also with anyone interested in American life and letters.

Start-Up Nation The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle DAN SENOR AND SAUL SINGER FOREWORD BY SHIMON PERES

“An eye-opening look at a side of Israel that most people never think about.” —Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, authors of Freakonomics

START-UP NATION addresses the trillion dollar question: How is it that Israel—a country of 7.1 million, only 60 years old, surrounded by enemies, in a constant state of war since its founding, with no natural resources—produces more start-up companies than large, peaceful, and stable nations like Japan, China, India, Korea, Canada, and the UK? With the savvy of foreign policy insiders, Senor and Singer examine the lessons of the country’s adversity-driven culture, and how it blends with a national ethos that flattens hierarchy and elevates informality, all backed up by unique government policies focused on innovation. The authors show how the world’s first “start-up nation” can inform America’s successes at a time when innovation has become the key to driving global economic recovery and growth. As this country reboots its can-do spirit, there’s never been a better time to look at a remarkable and resilient nation for some impressive, surprising clues. ●●

Scorpions The Battles and Triumphs of FDR’s Great Supreme Court Justices NOAH FELDMAN

“FDR appointed larger-than-life characters to the Supreme Court, and SCORPIONS brings them vividly to life—and reminds us why, strangely enough, they matter today more than ever.” —Jeffrey Toobin, author of The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court A tiny, ebullient Jew who started as America’s leading liberal and ended as its most famous judicial conservative. A Klansman who became an absolutist advocate of free speech and civil rights. A backcountry lawyer who started off trying cases about cows and went on to conduct the most important international trial ever. A self-invented, tall-tale Westerner who narrowly missed the presidency but expanded individual freedom beyond what anyone before had dreamed. Felix Frankfurter, Hugo Black, Robert Jackson, and William O. Douglas, four more different men could hardly be imagined. Yet they had certain things in common. Each was a self-made man who came from humble beginnings. They began as close allies and friends of FDR, but the quest to shape a new Constitution led them to competition and sometimes outright warfare. SCORPIONS tells the story of these four great justices: their relationship with Roosevelt, with each other, and with the turbulent world of the Great Depression, World War II, and the Cold War. ●●

God and Sex What the Bible Really Says MICHAEL COOGAN

“Scintillating....A seasoned interpreter of Scripture shows how ancient authors viewed the world of sexuality, and how these ancient reflections can influence modern thinking.” —Bart D. Ehrman, New York Times bestselling author of Misquoting Jesus

The Bible is full of narratives and laws about sexual encounters, and modern-day readers have shown a widespread interest in what, exactly, it says about the subject. Scholars rigorously examine the Bible from historical, theological, and ethical perspectives, but many clergy and laypeople take its words (even the most confusing and bizarre ones) at face value. Additionally, these texts are often used to legislate morality and promote “family values”—selectively interpreting what was written. In GOD AND SEX, Michael Coogan helps bridge the gulf between scholarly understanding and popular appropriation, by looking at what the Bible says about sex within the context of its social world. Only by understanding how ancient authors viewed issues of sexuality—fidelity, adultery, premarital sex, and homo- and heterosexual relations—can we effectively apply their reflections to modern thinking. ●●

Michael Coogan is Director of Publications for the Harvard Semitic Museum, lecturer on the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible at Harvard Divinity School, and Professor of Religious Studies at Stonehill College. He has written and taught extensively on the Bible at Harvard University, Wellesley College, Boston College, Stonehill College, and elsewhere. He knows the text inside out and is in a strong position to discuss its origins. Sex and the Bible is a hot-button topic. Pundits, preachers, and laypeople invoke Biblical passages to argue what God thinks and thus what we should think about sex. In a straightforward and informed tone, GOD AND SEX goes beyond these interpretations and offers a levelheaded approach to what the Bible really meant when it was written and how we might apply those insights today. Hardcover ISBN: 978-0-446-54525-9, 10/10

“Readers looking for an unbiased appraisal of what the Bible says about premarital sex, homosexuality, and polygamy can trust Coogan, a biblical scholar of the highest order. Concise, clear, and accessible to general readers, this book covers all the usual topics plus a few that may surprise.”

The Sherlockian GRAHAM MOORE

“First time novelist Moore spins engaging parallel detective stories: one set in the lively world of modern-day Sherlock buffs and another features turn-of-the-century scribe Arthur Conan Doyle himself.” —Entertainment Weekly December 1893: Hungry for the latest Sherlock Holmes installment, Londoners opened their Strand magazines, only to discover that Holmes’s creator, Arthur Conan Doyle, had killed their hero off. Eight years later, however, just as abruptly as he had “murdered” Holmes, Conan Doyle brought him back. After Conan Doyle’s death, the diary that would have shed light on his mysterious reasons went missing. January 2010: When Harold White is inducted into the preeminent Sherlock Holmes society, The Baker Street Irregulars, he never imagines he’s about to embark on the hunt for the holy grail of Holmes-ophiles: the missing diary. But when the world’s leading Doylean scholar turns up dead, it is Harold who must take up the search, both for the diary and for the killer. In a journey that hurtles from New York to London, and from the present day into the historical milieu of Conan Doyle, Harold delves perilously into the history of Sherlock Holmes and his creator—discovering a secret that proves to be anything but “elementary.” ●●

The Evolution of Bruno Littlemore BENJAMIN HALE

“We’ve finally got a book to screech and howl about. Benjamin Hale’s audacious first novel is a tragicomedy that makes you want to jump up on the furniture and beat your chest…. Brilliant.” —Washington Post Bruno Littlemore is unlike any chimpanzee in the world. Precocious, self-conscious, and preternaturally gifted, young Bruno is raised at the local zoo and soon falls under the care of a primatologist named Lydia Littlemore. Discovering Bruno’s unique talent, Lydia places him in her home to oversee his education and nurture his passion for painting. But for all of his gifts, the chimpanzee has a rough time caging his more primal urges. Bruno’s untimely outbursts ultimately cost Lydia her job and send the unlikely pair on the road in what proves to be one of the most unforgettable journeys— and most affecting love stories—in recent literature. Benjamin Hale presents a relentlessly inventive coming of age story that is by turns comic, violent, heartbreaking, and perverse. Bruno’s fictional memoir stands apart for its brilliant and striking expression of what it feels like to be human. It is, in the end, a novel about finding one’s own voice, and insisting on it. ●●

Don’t Blink James Patterson and Howard Roughan

James Patterson delivers the scariest mafia thriller since The Godfather—an all-out mob war, and one man caught in the crossfire.

New York’s Lombardo’s Steak House is famous for three reasons—the menu, the clientele, and now, the gruesome murder of an infamous mob lawyer. Effortlessly, the assassin slips through the police’s fingers. Seated at a nearby table, reporter Nick Daniels is conducting a once-in-a-lifetime interview with a legendary baseball bad boy. In the chaos, he accidentally captures a key piece of evidence that lands him in the middle of an all-out war between Italian and Russian mafia forces. NYPD captains, district attorneys, mayoral candidates, media kingpins, and one shockingly beautiful magazine editor are all pushing their own agendas—on both sides of the law. Back off or die is the clear message Nick receives as he investigates for a story of his own. Nick endures humiliation, threats, violence, and worse in a thriller that overturns every expectation and finishes with the kind of flourish only James Patterson knows. ●●

Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang Chelsea Handler

The #1 New York Times bestselling collection of laugh-out-loud, original essays is now in paperback.

Life doesn’t get more hilarious than when Chelsea Handler takes aim with her irreverent wit. In this collection of essays, the #1 bestselling author of Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea delivers one laugh-out-loud moment after another as she sets her sights on the ridiculous sides of childhood, adulthood, and daughterhood. Family moments are fair game, whether it’s writing a report on Reaganomics to earn a Cabbage Patch Kid, or teaching her father social graces by ordering him to stay indoors. It’s open season on her love life, from playing a prank on her boyfriend (using a ravioli, a fake autopsy, and the Santa Monica pier) to adopting a dog so she can snuggle with someone who doesn’t talk. And everyone ducks for cover when her beach vacation turns into matchmaking gone wild. Outrageously funny and deliciously wicked, CHELSEA CHELSEA BANG BANG is very very good good! ●●

But when Keats’s mother makes a surprise announcement the entire family is sent into a tailspin. For the first time, Keats can’t pick up the pieces herself. Now she must reevaluate everything she’s ever assumed about herself and her family—and make the biggest choice of her life. ●●

Oogy The Dog Only a Family Could Love LARRY LEVIN

“An incredible story about an unforgettable dog. Get ready to make a very big place in your heart for OOGY. Because you’re going to fall in love with this dog. And, this book.” —Gary David Goldberg, creator of Family Ties and Brooklyn Bridge and author of Sit, Ubu, Sit

“When I touched the pup I felt that I had never met an animal with such soft fur. He was a plush toy come to life, as smooth as butter. I stood and cradled the dog in my arms as he licked my face and neck. The boys crowded around; the pup covered us with kisses. We fell instantly and completely in love with him.” In 2002, Larry Levin and his twin sons, Dan and Noah, took their terminally ill cat to the Ardmore Animal Hospital outside Philadelphia to have the beloved pet put to sleep. What would begin as a terrible day suddenly got brighter as the ugliest dog they had ever seen—one who was missing an ear and had half his face covered in scar tissue—ran up to them and captured their hearts. The dog had been used as bait for fighting dogs when he was just four months old. He had been thrown in a cage and left to die until the police rescued him, and the staff at Ardmore Hospital saved his life. The Levins—whose sons are themselves adopted—were unable to resist Oogy’s charms, and decided to take him home. Heartwarming and redemptive, OOGY is the story of the people who were determined to rescue this dog against all odds, and of the family who took him home, named him “Oogy” (an affectionate derivative of ugly), and made him one of their own. 978-0-446-54630-0 • $13.99 ($15.50 in Canada) Dogs • 5 1/4 x 8 • 240 pgs • 20 b/w halftones • Publishing background: GCP hardcover • Territories: World

Tracy Anderson’s 30-Day Method The Weight-Loss Kick-Start That Makes Perfection Possible TRACY ANDERSON FOREWORD BY GWYNETH PALTROW

The revolutionary, change-your-body (for good!) weight-loss program from fitness guru and personal trainer to the stars Tracy Anderson is now in paperback.

Based on 10 years of scientific research and experience getting clients red-carpet ready—A-listers or not—Anderson has developed a program that defies genetics to tone, trim, and reshape the body. Most exercises incorrectly focus on bigger muscle groups, such as the biceps or hamstrings, when they should really be working the smaller accessory muscles. Anderson teaches readers how to shift this focus, activating and challenging the smaller muscles to achieve a long, lean physique instead of a bulky look. THE 30-DAY METHOD will also prevent muscles from getting bored; and the menus will help boost metabolism. This groundbreaking program includes: • Three proven effective 10-day muscle work sequences • A dance cardio routine (featured on DVD) targeting the all-important accessory muscles • Tracy’s exclusive 30-day kick-start meal plan and detox • Dozens of delicious recipes • And more!

Silenced KIA DUPREE

In this emotional novel, a woman must deal with the trials and tribulations of urban life and protect her children from the tough streets of Washington, DC.

Since the day Nicola lost her job, she’s had to make tough decisions no parent would ever want to make. Now she and her daughter Tinka don’t seem to understand each other. They’re drifting in two different directions. Tinka feels she can never do anything right by her mother’s standards— whether it’s chores, school work, or the guys she likes—even if her two older brothers Marquan and Taevon, are always in and out of trouble, but easily let off the hook. Falling on hard times, Nicola has to move her family into one of the most notorious projects in DC. She knows she must work extra hard to keep her family from succumbing to the streets. When her eldest son Marquan faces murder charges, Nicola focuses her energy on his case, hoping that she can keep her family intact. But Tinka’s interest is piqued by a guy who is all too familiar with the streets, leading her down a path her mother fears. Nicola is frantic to keep the pieces—and her family—together. ●●

Say You’ll Be Mine Julia Amante

A professional woman’s life is turned upside down when her deceased cousin leaves her an unlikely inheritance: three young children—from the critically acclaimed author of Evenings at the Argentine Club. Isabel Gallegos, owner and CEO of Gallegos Wines, is tired of being responsible. Tending to everyone else’s needs before her own has left her divorced, unhappy, and unfulfilled. The winery had been her parents dream, never hers, but she devoted herself to making it a success. After much thought, Isabel decides to sell the winery, move to the beach, and finally take back her life. Then, just as these changes are about to take place, Isabel’s cousin dies, and Isabel is named legal guardian of her three young children. Convinced this must be a mistake, Isabel returns to Argentina, intent on finding a more suitable home—and parent—for the kids. But as she spends time getting reacquainted with her family and her past, the decision to return to her own life grows complicated. Should she bring the children home with her, or find a way for them to stay in Argentina? Should she stay with them? Can she really give up her own dream, just as she’s about to realize it? ●●

James Patterson’s New York Times bestselling Michael Bennett thriller is now available in trade paperback.

A rash of horrifying crimes tears through the city, throwing it into complete chaos and terrorizing everyone living there. Immediately it becomes clear that they’re the work not of an amateur but of a calculating, efficient, and deadly mastermind. The city calls on Detective Michael Bennett, pulling him away from a seaside retreat with his 10 adopted children, his grandfather, and their beloved nanny, Mary Catherine. Not only does it tear apart their first vacation since Michael’s wife Maeve died, it leaves the entire family open to attack. Bennett enlists the help of a former colleague, FBI agent Emily Parker. As his affection for Emily grows into something stronger, his relationship with Mary Catherine takes an unexpected turn. All too soon, another appalling crime leads Bennett to a shocking discovery that exposes the killer’s pattern— and the earth-shattering enormity of his plan. ●●

An Object of Beauty A Novel STEVE MARTIN

“A bodacious, brainy, bountiful read and a bracing cautionary tale.”

—Elle magazine

Groomed at Sotheby’s and hungry to keep climbing the social and career ladders put before her, Lacey charms men and women, old and young, rich and even richer with her magnetic charisma and liveliness. Her ascension to the highest tiers of the city parallels the soaring heights—and, at times, the dark lows—of the art world and the country from the late 1990s through today. ●●

Simple Times Crafts for Poor People AMY SEDARIS

“Hyperkinetic….The book’s sheer visual exuberance and wide scope make it obvious that Sedaris is a dedicated follower of the pipe-cleaner arts….It has strong potential as a gift.” —New York Times Book Review

According to Amy Sedaris, it’s often been said that ugly people craft and attractive people have sex. In her latest book, SIMPLE TIMES, she sets the record straight. Demonstrating that crafting is one of life’s more pleasurable and constructive leisure activities, Sedaris shows how anyone with a couple of hours to kill and access to pipe cleaners can join the elite society of crafters. Readers will discover how to make popular crafts such as crab-claw roach clips, tinfoil balls, and crepe-paper moccasins; where to look for inspiration (buy fruit, let it get old, and see what shapes it turns into); ways to avoid the most common crafting accidents (sawdust fires, feather asphyxia, pine cone lodged in throat); and cook edible crafts (from a Crafty Candle Salad to Sugar Skulls). Plus there are whole chapters filled with more crafting ideas (pompon ringworms! seashell toilet seat covers!) that will inspire readers to create their own hastily constructed obscure d’arts, and much, much more!

In hardcover, SIMPLE TIMES has shipped more than 225,000 copies and hit the New York Times, Washington Post, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. Sedaris’s previous book, I Like You (GCP, 978-0-446-57884-4, 10/06), was an instant New York Times bestseller, spending 19 weeks on the list and reaching #7. It also hit the San Francisco Chronicle (#2), The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Denver Post, USA TODAY, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists and has sold more than 330,000 hardcover and paperback copies combined. Crafting is hugely popular in America—people in 56% of U.S. households craft, creating a $27 billion industry—and with the ongoing recession and consumer spending habits at an all-time low, the notion of craft has taken on new relevance. Sedaris’s clever ideas should please her ever-growing fan base and attract new readers. The multi-talented Amy Sedaris is well known for her work as an actress (Comedy Central’s Strangers with Candy, Rescue Me, Sex and the City), a perennial David Letterman guest, and film star (the upcoming The Best and the Brightest and Shrek Forever After).

The Good Daughter A Memoir of My Mother’s Hidden Life Jasmin Darznik

The New York Times bestseller now in paperback—a sweeping, poignant, and beautifully written memoir of an Iranian-American woman’s discovery of her mother’s secret past.

We were a world of two, my mother and I, until I started turning into an American girl. That’s when she started talking to me about the Good Daughter. Jasmin Darznik left Iran for America at the age of three, and grew up knowing little of her family’s history. When she was in her early 20s, Jasmin was helping her mother pack up to move when a photograph fell from a stack of old letters. The girl pictured was her mother. She was wearing a wedding veil, but the man standing by her side was someone Jasmin had never seen before. At first, her mother, Lili, refused to share any information. A few months later, Jasmin received from her mother the first of 10 cassette tapes that would reveal the wrenching, hidden story of her family’s true origins in Iran: Lili’s marriage at 13, her troubled history of abuse and neglect, and the daughter she was forced to abandon. The final tape revealed that Jasmin’s sister Sara—the Good Daughter—was still living in Iran. Readers will be enthralled as Darznik takes them on an emotional journey through pre-revolutionary and post-revolutionary Iran and one family’s challenging path to freedom and understanding.

978-0-446-53498-7 • $14.99 ($16.50 in Canada) Memoir • 5 ½ x 8 ¼ • 336 pgs • Publishing background: GCP hardcover • Territories: U.S., Canada, and Open Market Also Available as an eBook.

“An eye-opening account that disturbs with its depiction of the place of women in Iranian society, but warms the heart in its portrayal of their gritty endurance.” —Kirkus Reviews “Darznik is a rare talent, and her family history a dazzler.” —More magazine

Jasmin Darznik has won several awards for THE GOOD DAUGHTER.

Similar themes of immigration, Middle Eastern politics and culture, and the plight of women are at the heart of recent New York Times bestsellers The Bookseller of Kabul (Little, Brown, 2003) and Reading Lolita in Tehran (Random House, 2000). Darznik’s writing has appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and other publications. Since 1999, she’s been a feature writer for www.iranian.com—the most popular online publication for the Iranian Diaspora. Hardcover ISBN: 978-0-446-53497-0, 1/11

Saints Astray JACQUELINE CAREY

New York Times bestselling author Jacqueline Carey returns with her character Loup Garron in this sequel to Santa Olivia.

Fellow orphans, amateur vigilantes, and members of the Santitos, Loup Garron—the fugitive daughter of a genetically engineered “wolf-man”—and Pilar Ecchevarria spent their entire lives under military occupation in a cordoned off Texas no-man’s-land that used to be called Santa Olivia, now known as Outpost 12. But now they’re free, and they want to help the rest of the Santitos escape. During a series of escapades, they discover that Miguel Garza, Loup’s former sparring partner and reprobate surrogate brother, has escaped from Outpost 12 and is testifying on behalf of its forgotten citizens—at least until he disappears from protective custody. Driven by a sense of honor, Loup vows to rescue Miguel, even though venturing into the U.S. could mean losing her liberty. Driven by love and loyalty, Pilar promises to help her. It will take a daring and absurd caper to extricate Miguel from the mess he’s created, but Loup is prepared to risk everything...and this time she has help.

Little Girl Gone DRUSILLA CAMPBELL

From the critically acclaimed author of The Good Sister comes a stirring new novel about a runaway girl, a troubled boy, and what it means to be held prisoner: by force, fear, or love.

Madora was 17, headed for trouble with drugs and men, when Willis rescued her. Fearful of the world and alienated from family and friends, she ran away with him and for five years they have lived alone, in near isolation. When Willis kidnaps Linda, a pregnant teenager, and imprisons her in a truck trailer behind the house, Madora is torn between her love for him, her fear of the world, and her sense of right and wrong. A pit bull puppy named Foo brings Django Jones, a brilliant but troubled 12-year-old boy, into Madora’s life. As Django struggles to understand his place in the world, he helps Madora discover the personal and moral courage to free herself and Linda from Willis’s control, and learn to stand on her own. ●●

The Science of Kissing What Our Lips Are Telling Us SHERIL KIRSHENBAUM

Now in paperback: a wonderfully witty and fascinating exploration of how and why we kiss, from a noted science journalist.

When did humans begin to kiss? Why is kissing integral to some cultures and alien to others? Do good kissers make the best lovers? And is that expensive lip-plumping gloss worth it? Sheril Kirshenbaum, a biologist and science journalist, tackles these questions and more in THE SCIENCE OF KISSING. It’s everything you always wanted to know about kissing but either hadn’t asked, couldn’t find out, or didn’t realize you should understand. The book is informed by the latest studies and theories, but Kirshenbaum’s engaging voice gives the information a light touch. Topics range from the kind of kissing men like (as distinct from women) to what animals can teach us about the kiss to whether or not the true art of kissing was lost sometime in the Dark Ages. Drawing upon classical history, evolutionary biology, psychology, popular culture, and more, Kirshenbaum’s winning book will appeal to romantics and armchair scientists alike. ●●

“In the vein of Steven Pinker’s The Language Instinct, scientist Kirshenbaum examines one of humanity’s fondest pastimes.

House of Lies How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time MARTIN KIHN

Reissued in trade paperback to tie in to the new Showtime series, HOUSE OF LIES is a devastatingly accurate and darkly hilarious look at management consulting.

Once upon a time in Corporate America there was a group of men and women who were paid huge fees to tell organizations what they were doing wrong and how to improve themselves. These men and women promised everything and delivered nothing, said they were experts when they were not, and sometimes ruined careers, and at best, only wasted time, energy, and huge sums of money. They called themselves Management Consultants…. Welcome to the world of Martin Kihn, a former stand-up comic and Emmy® Award-nominated television writer who decided to “go straight” and earn his MBA at a prestigious Ivy League university. In HOUSE OF LIES, he brazenly chronicles his first two years as a newly minted management consultant: featuring his struggles with erroneous advice, absurd arrogance, and bloody power struggles. Hey, it’s all in a day’s work—and it pays really well! ●●

Lastingness The Art of Old Age NICHOLAS DELBANCO

Now in paperback, one of the country’s leading literary figures explores the fascinating question of why some people’s creative talents flourish with age while others’ fade.

America grows older yet stays focused on its young. Whatever hill we try to climb, we’re “over” it by 50, and should that hill involve entertainment or athletics we’re finished long before. But if younger is better, it doesn’t appear that youngest is best: we want our teachers, doctors, generals, and presidents to have reached a certain age. In context after context and contest after contest, we’re more than a little conflicted about elders of the tribe. When is it right to honor them, and when to say, “step aside?” In LASTINGNESS, Nicholas Delbanco profiles great geniuses in the fields of visual art, literature, and music—Monet, Yeats, Verdi, and others—searching for the answers to why some artists’ work diminishes with age, while others’ reaches its peak. Both an intellectual inquiry into the essence of aging and creativity and a personal journey of discovery, this is a brilliant exploration of what is needed to keep the habits of creation and achievement alive. ●●

Among his most recent novels published by GCP are Spring and Fall (10/06), The Vagabonds (11/04), and What Remains (11/00). As an author and an educator, Nicholas Delbanco has earned widespread acclaim and many literary awards. He has taught at Columbia and Iowa Universities, as well as Bennington, Skidmore, Trinity, and Williams Colleges. He is currently the director of the prestigious Hopwood Awards at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, where he is the Robert Frost Distinguished University Professor of English. LASTINGNESS is in the tradition of Harold Bloom’s works of cultural criticism, and readers will be drawn to Delbanco’s similarly smart and challenging analyses.

Invisible Boy CORNELIA READ

Now in paperback, “Cornelia Read’s darkest, most passionate, and most poignant book yet.” —Tana French, New York Times bestselling author

The smart-mouthed but sensitive runaway socialite Madeline Dare is shocked when she discovers the skeleton of a threeyear-old boy in her own weed-ridden family cemetery across the East River from Manhattan. Determined to see justice served, Madeline finds herself examining her own troubled history along with the sometimes hidden, sometimes all-toopublic, class and racial warfare that penetrates every level of society in the savage streets of New York City during the early 1990s. The result is a gripping narrative that relates the causes and consequences of a vicious crime to the wider relationships that connect and divide a city. In INVISIBLE BOY Cornelia Read depicts, with sensitivity, eloquence, and powerful emotion, the unstable fault lines of family, friendship, and society at large. ●●

And I Shall Have Some Peace There Trading in the Fast Lane for My Own Dirt Road MARGARET ROACH

“Roach limns a reflective odyssey for affirmation and acceptance that blends Zen-like wisdom with zany escapades.” —Booklist

In 2008, Margaret Roach made the life-altering decision to leave New York City and a career many would describe as hugely successful. She had been editorial director of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, a New York Times editor, and a gardening book author, to name a few achievements—but Margaret felt unfulfilled. No longer satiated by financial and professional gain, she indulged a long-stifled dream and sought a completely different reward.

Mr. Funny Pants Michael Showalter

“Procrastination in written form. This book, like all great works, is honest, absurd, and absolutely pointless.” —Amy Poehler

Have you ever wondered how Michael Showalter writes a book? You have? Well, then, lucky you, he lays out his process in this wagdoodle* of a humdinger. By combining funny anecdotes, stories, jokes, humor pieces (which are also just jokes), observations, lists, doodles, graphic elements, and memoir, Michael Showalter takes readers through the difficulties of writing this very book. The end result is a new sort of humor book, with the ultimate goal to entertain, and on a deeper level, to tell Showalter’s story: his obsessions—creative and otherwise—his success, and his many failings. Reminiscent of works by David Sedaris, Nick Hornby, and Fyodor Dostoevsky**, as well as the straightforward, just-for-laughs style of Woody Allen (his personal life, not his books), MR. FUNNY PANTS will be indispensible to cult followers who have been there since The State, as well as to humor fans just discovering Showalter’s absurd charm. *new term ●●

A young man journeys from California to Colombia in search of his birth mother in this emotional second novel from author Leila Cobo.

Asher Stone grew up in an idyllic California family. His mother Linda made sure of that.

As Asher embarks on a journey back to Colombia to uncover his past, his story intermingles with that of his birthmother Rita’s.

In Office Hours LUCY KELLAWAY

Lucy Kellaway’s brutally honest, hilarious, and witty debut novel about two women’s office romances—and everything good and bad that comes with dipping their pens in the company ink, now in paperback. Intelligent and driven career women, Stella Bradberry and Bella Chambers are usually practical to a fault—until they both fall head over heels for the wrong men in the absolute worst place—at work. Bella, the pretty single mother who dropped out of college, is doomed to work as an invisible assistant to a series of men with half her intelligence. Stella is 20 years older, about to get a seat on the board, and is the original no-glass-ceiling, high-achieving mother of two. So what possesses both women to embark on heart-wrenching affairs with men they wouldn’t have looked twice at outside the office? Smart, funny, moving, and agonizing, IN OFFICE HOURS is a masterclass in office romance, bringing to life the lies and sabotage, the strutting lunacy of CEOs, the building and shattering of egos, and the exquisite possibilities that make it all worthwhile. ●●

What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About™ Heart Disease Mark C. Houston, MD, MS

This groundbreaking program reveals what really causes heart disease—and what can be done to prevent and treat its devastating effects on long-term health.

Coronary heart disease has long been the number one killer in the U.S., and for decades, people have been told about five basic risk factors: elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, and smoking. But the truth is that heart disease is much more complex—with close to 400 risk factors! In this innovative guide, Dr. Mark Houston helps readers discover the causes of heart disease, how to prevent and treat its debilitating effects via nutrition, nutritional supplements, exercise, and weight management, and lays to rest the various myths (cholesterol is not the primary cause) based on scientific studies and medical publications. Readers will also learn how to identify the risk factors most likely to endanger them and construct an arsenal of non-pharmacological preventive strategies that can counteract this most deadly disease.  ●●

Satori DON WINSLOW

Nicholai Hel—genius, mystic, and the perfect, formidable assassin—was first introduced to readers in Shibumi, the classic #1 bestseller by master storyteller Trevanian. Don Winslow continues Hel’s story for the first time in this all-new, blockbuster thriller—now in paperback. It is the fall of 1951 and the Korean War is raging. Twenty-six year-old Nicholai Hel has spent the last three years in solitary confinement at the hands of the Americans. Hel is a master of hoda korosu or “naked kill,” fluent in seven languages, and has honed extraordinary “proximity sense”—an extra-awareness of the presence of danger. He has the skills to be the world’s most formidable assassin and now the CIA needs him. The Americans offer Hel freedom in exchange for one small service: go to Beijing and kill the Soviet Union’s Commissioner to China. It’s almost certainly a suicide mission, but Hel accepts. Now he must survive chaos, violence, suspicion, and betrayal while trying to achieve his ultimate goal of satori—the possibility of true understanding and harmony with the world. ●●

Good Boss, Bad Boss How to Be the Best…and Learn from the Worst ROBERT I. SUTTON, PHD

“This book is the personal coach that every boss deserves: warm, smart, and freakishly good at translating scientific research into practical tips that will keep you at the top of your game.” —Chip and Dan Heath, authors of Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard

If people have a job, chances are they have a boss, whether it’s at the supervisory, managerial, or executive level. And for most employees, keeping the boss happy often becomes the major focus of corporate life. Problem is—and as Dr. Sutton made clear in The No Asshole Rule—too many people work for bosses who are jerks. But in GOOD BOSS, BAD BOSS, Dr. Sutton answers three straightforward questions: If you want to be a good boss, what do you need to accomplish day after day? If you have a bad boss, what can you do about it? And, what are the hallmarks of a Good Boss…and the worst flaws of a Bad Boss? With a common sense approach and drawing upon real-life case studies, psychological research, and pertinent literature, Dr. Sutton delivers a lively account and definitive guide for anyone who aspires to be a boss—or has to work for one. ●●

With insight and wit, Beckwith examines every aspect of service marketing, and offers proven advice such as: • Greatness May Get You Nowhere • Focus Groups Don’ts • The More You Say, the Less People Hear • Seeing the Forest Around the Falling Trees • And more tips and strategies for improving profits. ●●

The Zombie Autopsies Secret Notebooks from the Apocalypse STEVEN C. SCHLOZMAN, MD

“Humanity has a new weapon against the living dead and that weapon is Steven Schlozman!” —Max Brooks, New York Times bestselling author of The Zombie Survival Guide and World War II

As the walking dead rise up throughout the world, a few brave doctors attempt to find a cure by applying forensic techniques to captured zombies. Based on the research of renowned zombie expert Dr. Stanley Blum, performed at a remote island where a crack medical team has been sent to explore a radical theory that may lead to a cure for the epidemic, THE ZOMBIE AUTOPSIES documents for the first time the unique biology of zombie organisms. Twenty-five detailed drawings of the internal organs of actual zombies provide an accurate anatomy of these horrifying creatures, including zombie brains, hearts, lungs, skin, and the digestive system, while Dr. Blum’s notes reveal shocking insights into how they function, even as Blum and his staff themselves begin to succumb to the plague. No one knows the ultimate fate of Dr. Blum or his researchers, but now that his notebook, THE ZOMBIE AUTOPSIES, has been made available to the U.N., the World Health Organization, and the general public, his scientific discoveries may provide the last hope for humans on Earth! ●●

Leaving Sophie Dean Alexandra Whitaker

An intelligent, surprising and very funny debut novel of one woman’s unconventional reaction to her husband’s betrayal.

Adam and Sophie Dean’s good-enough marriage could easily have lasted forever. But Adam succumbs to pressure from his mistress to leave Sophie, and in the course of his carefully prepared farewell speech, Sophie has a revelation: unless she leaves  him in the family home in the role of primary caregiver,  he’ll have a severely diminished role in the lives of their two sons.   So while Adam continues to live in  the suburban house he despises—with his two children and his angry mistress, who’d never planned for  this  turn of events—Sophie sets out alone into an alluring new life nearby, close enough to see her sons every day, but far removed from her former life of domestic drudgery. As she and Adam grow into their new roles, they discover what it actually means to act in their children’s best interests, and that the end of a marriage can be a beginning. ●●
