Ira Levinson is in trouble. At 91 years old, in poor health and alone in the world, he finds himself stranded on an isolated embankment after a car crash. Suffering multiple injuries, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, who passed away nine years ago. Urging him to hang on, she forces him to remain alert by recounting the stories of their lifetime together—how they met, the precious paintings they collected together, and the dark days of WWII and its effect on them and their families.  Ira knows that Ruth can’t possibly be real, but he clings to her words and his memories, reliving the sorrows and everyday joys that defined their marriage.   A few miles away, at a local rodeo, a Wake Forest College senior’s life is about to change. Recovering from a recent break-up, Sophia Danko meets a young cowboy named Luke, who bears little resemblance to the privileged frat boys she has encountered at school.  Through Luke, Sophia is introduced to a world in which the stakes of survival and success, ruin and reward—even life and death—loom large in everyday life.  As she and Luke fall in love, Sophia finds herself imagining a future far removed from her plans—a future that Luke has the power to rewrite...if the secret he’s keeping doesn’t destroy it first.   Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common, and who are separated by years and experience. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

Dawson Scott is a well-respected journalist recently returned from Afghanistan. Haunted by everything he experienced, he’s privately suffering from battle fatigue which is a threat to every aspect of his life. But then he gets a call from a source within the FBI. A new development has come to light in a story that began 40 years ago. It could be the BIG story of Dawson’s career—one in which he has a vested interest. Soon, Dawson is covering the disappearance and presumed murder of former Marine Jeremy Wesson, the biological son of the pair of terrorists, who remain on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. As Dawson delves into the story, he finds himself developing feelings for Wesson’s ex-wife, Amelia, and her two young sons. But when Amelia’s nanny turns up dead, the case takes a stunning new turn, with Dawson himself becoming a suspect. Haunted by his own demons, Dawson takes up the chase for the notorious outlaws...and the secret, startling truth about himself.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown comes a new heart-pounding thriller about a journalist hot on the trail of two domestic terrorists who for decades have eluded capture.

Praise for Low Pressure:

“Sandra Brown meticulously develops a stellar cast of characters, weaving them into a tense, gritty thriller that offers numerous plot twists leading to stunning revelations and a nail-biting conclusion….Low Pressure is a book you’ll —USA TODAY want to read in one sitting.”

Excerpt:

The third witness of the day was being called. For background, Dawson had read the news stories about the double murder. He supposed he’d seen photographs of the ex Mrs. Wesson, although he was always more interested in the content of a story and the way in which it had been written than he was in the accompanying pictures, so he really hadn’t paid attention.   Suddenly he was interested.  The woman walking up the short center aisle wasn’t at all what he’d expected. 

Sandra Brown lives in Texas.

The Witness Wore Red

Everybody’s Brother

The 19th Wife Who Brought Polygamous Cult Leaders to Justice

CeeLo Green with Big Gipp and David Wild

Rebecca Musser with M. Bridget Cook

The revealing and inspiring memoir of a woman in a polygamous marriage in the FLDS Church and her brave struggle to protect others from the same fate.

Readers are fascinated by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, as evidenced by Elissa Wall’s Stolen Innocence (William Morrow, 2008), which sold more than 100,000 copies, and Carolyn Jessop’s Escape (Broadway Books, 2007), which sold more than 200,000 copies. Rebecca Musser has declined all publicity from national news media until THE WITNESS WORE RED is published. Musser is a national speaker and the founder of Claim Red, a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing hope to victims of human trafficking, and speaks nationally on behalf of oppressed women.

He dresses as Liberace, performs with Muppets, and does 360-degree flips with a grand piano at his fingertips. He’s a star of a #1-rated network reality show and is a genre-breaking artist who has garnered millions of fans. He can recreate himself faster than Madonna, and because of this he’s remained a man of mystery. Now, CeeLo Green finally opens up, revealing his personal story and what it took for this underdog to find his voice and maintain his individuality while rising to the top. At times gritty and always truthful, this memoir will be threaded through with some hope, some inspiration, and some advice, along with narration by CeeLo’s “brother from another mother” Big Gipp. Both in its tone and in its look, EVERYBODY’S BROTHER is a theatrical, artistic statement that perfectly captures its memorable maverick author. ●●

MATTHIAS CLAMER

Rebecca Musser grew up in fear, concealing her family’s polygamous lifestyle from the “dangerous” outside world. Covered head-to-toe in modest clothing, she received a rigorous education at a Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints school headed by Warren Jeffs. In her teens, she became the 19th wife of her people’s prophet: 85-year-old Rulon Jeffs, Warren’s father. Finally sickened by the abuse she suffered and saw around her, she pulled off a daring escape and sought to build a new life and family. In 2007, no longer able to stand for the underage marriages still being perpetuated within the church, Rebecca took the witness stand against the new prophet of the FLDS. The following year, she and the rest of the world watched as a team of Texas Rangers raided the Yearning for Zion Ranch, a stronghold of the FLDS. Rebecca’s subsequent testimony revealed the horrific secrets behind the temple’s closed doors, sending their leaders to prison for years, and Warren Jeffs for life. THE WITNESS WORE RED is a gripping account of one woman’s struggle to escape the perverse embrace of religious fanaticism and sexual slavery, and a courageous story of hope and transformation.

With a distinctive soul sound that appeals to everyone’s pop sensibilities, Green’s #1 single “F--- You” was number one in spins in America across all radio formats in 2012, received nearly 79 million YouTube hits, and sold 5 million singles. He was also the lead singer of the soul duo Gnarls Barkley, winner of two 2007 Grammys for their #1 hit “Crazy.” Green was one of four celebrity judges on NBC’s #1 reality television show The Voice for the show’s first three seasons. Season three, which ran September-December 2012, averaged 12 million viewers an episode. EVERYBODY’S BROTHER will tie in to the season five, Fall 2013, to take advantage of the massive audience. Big Gipp introduced Green to the members of Goodie Mob, the Atlanta based hip hop act, when Green was just 17. The two have remained close ever since.

New School Manifesto

Just Tell Me I Can’t

A Libertarian Look at American Education

How Jamie Moyer Defied the Radar Gun and Defeated Time

Ron Paul

Jamie Moyer and Larry Platt

Ron Paul—former Texas Congressman, presidential candidate, and #1 New York Times bestselling author—returns with a highly provocative and controversial treatise about America’s broken education system.

The extraordinary—and surprising—memoir of Jamie Moyer, who at age 49, is the oldest pitcher to ever win a game in the major leagues.

The vast majority of Americans agree that our education system is broken and that action needs to be taken. Dr. Ron Paul couldn’t agree more. Now, in his new book NEW SCHOOL MANIFESTO, the former Texas Congressman delves deeply into one of the most important issues facing us today. This book is a focused guide to Dr. Paul’s position, which centers on his strong support for home schooling and free market principles applied to education. He makes the case for individual freedoms as they pertain to educating our children, and nimbly dissects the most pressing issues that need to be addressed from the Libertarian point of view. Together with a brief history of education in this country, Dr. Paul examines and identifies what has gone wrong, and how we can think about the facts differently. It’s yet another book his devoted followers will be eager to embrace in order to better understand and actionably address the problem of education in America.

Ron Paul is a magnetic speaker, who appeals to Democrats, Republicans, and Independents alike. He has been featured on The Colbert Report, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Real Time with Bill Maher, and on CNN, and in the New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, among other media outlets. Since his bid for the presidency, Dr. Paul has been busy building a strong social media presence (Twitter: 406,000 followers; FB: 1.5 million Likes), which he will leverage to promote this book. He is the founder of campaignforliberty.com, a site that gets over three million hits per month. Additionally, Lew Rockwell, who helps Dr. Paul organize his books, operates the largest Libertarian site on the Internet (lewrockwell.com), which boasts more than 5.5 million hits per month.

Praise for The Revolution: “The real truth about Liberty. This book takes a wrecking ball to the political establishment. Senator Goldwater would have loved it—it’s The Conscience of a Conservative for the 21st century.”

Long-time fans of the national pastime have known Jamie Moyer’s name for more than 25 years. That’s because Moyer has been pitching in the major leagues all that time. With his trademark three pitches—slow, slower, and slowest—the left-handed Moyer is a pinpoint specialist whose won-lost record actually got better as he got older—from his 20s to his 30s and into his 40s. Today, Moyer is only a few wins shy of 300 career victories. But Moyer was almost finished as a big leaguer in his mid-20s, until he fatefully encountered a gravel-voiced, highly confrontational sports psychologist named Harvey Dorfman. Listening to the “in-your-face” insights of Dorfman, Moyer began to re-invent himself and to reconstruct his approach to the game. He went on to become an All-Star and a World Series champion…and one of the most amazing pitchers of all time. Yogi Berra once observed that “half of this game is 90% mental.” Jamie Moyer’s story proves it.

In 1990, Bruce Poon Tip returned from a trek to Asia with his backpack and a dream: Why not start a company that would guide others on exciting adventures around the world in a socially responsible and sustainable manner? Today, Poon Tip’s start-up company, G Adventures, has grown to become the world’s largest adventure travel agency, offering exotic expeditions and safaris to seven continents and guiding more than 100,000 travelers a year. LOOPTAIL is Bruce Poon Tip’s extraordinary first-person account of his own adventure, and the highly successful international company he built. Along the way, Poon Tip reveals his unusual management secrets that not only keep his employees fully engaged, but also keep his customers coming back for more. More than that, G Adventures prides itself on not having a singular CEO…but they do have a company Mayor. There’s no traditional HR department…instead, they have an inhouse Talent Agency and Culture Club (complete with Karma Chameleons). In short, it’s a different kind of place to work—and people absolutely love it.

Shearling boots. Draped ponchos. Shoulder pads. Turbans. Jumpsuits. These items are all glamorous, fashionable, and desirable—to women. But do they literally send men running in the opposite direction? Maybe, but Leandra Medine doesn’t care. A born and bred Upper East Sider, Medine’s fashion epiphany occurred while mourning multiple broken relationships in the dressing room of uber-trendy Topshop in Soho. As she slipped into drop-crotch shorts and a boxed sequin blazer, it hit her: she didn’t have a boyfriend because of the way she dressed. She realized that such outfits, such items of clothing, could measure her whole life. These essays, written with the author’s signature sass and blunt honesty, explore the deep connection between our memories and the sartorial choices associated with them. From the Bermuda Shorts to the Magical Harem Pants, Medine relates how she navigated her way into the most unusual item of all: The Inconsequential Big White Dress (And an Organza Jacket). That’s right, even the Man Repeller found love. This book is a collection of awkwardly funny experiences, a sweet love story, and above all, a reminder to celebrate and embrace a world made for women, by women.

Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang (GCP, 3/10) was a blockbuster, hitting #1 on the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly hardcover bestseller lists and going back to press six times in the first month of its release. The trade paperback was released in 9/11. The book has sold more than 830,000 combined copies. Chelsea Handler’s imprint, A Chelsea Handler Book/Borderline Amazing Publishing, launched to big success with Lies that Chelsea Handler Told Me (GCP, 978-0-446-58471-5, 5/11). Despite the fact that Handler did not write the book (it was instead written by her friends, family, and co-workers), the hardcover hit #1 on the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists and sold more than 302,000 copies. The trade paperback edition was published in 4/12, with more than 140,000 copies in print. Chelsea Lately is the third most-watched latenight cable talk show after The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report. It has been renewed through 2014, and the redesigned show website has been generating recordbreaking E! network video views. Handler’s faux reality show, After Lately, has been a ratings success and is currently in its third season on the E! network.

I awoke at 4:45 am in Johannesburg, South Africa, in my bra and underwear and looked over at my lesbian friend Shelly, who was in pajamas. Adult pajamas are hard to take seriously, especially when they’re worn by a forty-five-year-old woman and are silkscreened all over with pick-up trucks. After two full days of travel I’d had thirty-six hours of Zanax-induced sleep. Another Zanax would be good for eight hours, but I really needed to kill only four hours. So I bit a pill in half. Then I popped both halves into my mouth. My doctor had told me not to take more than four Zanax in two days. I had already taken seven.

That’s because I like to sleep on planes. To avoid conversation with strangers but mostly my friends. We were embarking on a two-week trip together. Best to save conversation for arrival. My thoughts then wandered to Africa itself. If Kim Kardashian got pregnant by a black guy who loved her enough to inseminate her, wouldn’t it be wonderful if they named the baby Afrika? Or, better yet, Afrikash? It occurred to me that it may be time to write another book.

Identical Scott Turow Innocent (GCP, 5/10), the author’s most recent novel, was an instant New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, and USA TODAY bestseller. The novel has sold nearly 500,000 copies in hardcover, trade paperback, and mass market combined.

An explosive new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Innocent and Presumed Innocent. ●●

Based loosely on the myth of Castor and Pollux, Identical is the story of identical twins Cass and Paul Giannis and the complex relationships between their family and their former neighbors, the Kronons. The novel focuses principally on events in 2008, when Paul is a candidate for Mayor of Kindle County, and Cass is released from prison, 25 years after pleading guilty to the murder of his girlfriend, Athena Kronon. When Evon Miller, an ex-FBI agent who is the head of security for the Kronon family business, and private investigator Tim Brodie begin a re-investigation of Athena’s death, a complex web of murder, sex, and betrayal—as only Scott Turow could weave—dramatically unfolds....

“Mesmerizing prose and intricate plotting….Once again, Turow displays an uncanny ability for making the passions and contradictions of his main characters accessible and understandable.” —Publishers Weekly

From John Grisham in the New York Times Book Review: “When Presumed Innocent was published in 1987, I was struggling to finish my first novel. Scott Turow re-energized the legal suspense genre with that book, and it inspired me to keep plugging along. Scott is still the best lawyer-novelist.” Turow frequently contributes essays and op-ed pieces to the New York Times, Washington Post, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, Playboy, The Atlantic, and other publications.

Praise for Innocent:

“A driving, unputdownable courtroom drama/murder mystery that is also a literary treasure, written in language that sparkles with clarity and resonates with —Stephen King honest character insight.”

Excerpt:

Years later, when Paul, as he often will, thinks back to this day that will end with Dita’s murder, her thrashing unhappiness will be plain to him across the distance of time. But in the moment, he feels only the peril she poses to his twin, a realization that raises an alarm in Paul far deeper than if he were facing all that trouble on his own. He marches off while the thought comes to him with the force and clarity of a trumpet blast: He hates that woman.

Scott Turow lives in Evanston, Illinois.

Jeffery Deaver ●●

New York Times bestselling author Jeffery Deaver’s next blockbuster—an original and riveting standalone thriller told in reverse.

●●

Gabriela and Daniel, two professionals in Manhattan, have known each other for only one day when a ruthless underworld figure named Joseph confronts them on the street at gunpoint. He tells Gabriela he’s kidnapped her daughter and if she doesn’t pay a half million dollars and deliver a mysterious document known as the “October List” within 30 hours, she’ll never see the young girl again. Plunged into a high-pressure, catand-mouse chase to find the cash and the October List, Gabriela and Daniel soon discover that their nightmare has just begun. No one is who they seem, and the list contains secrets with horrific and farreaching implications. Soon others, including the police, are on their trail too—with deadly consequences. And all the while, Joseph’s deadline grows closer and closer. The October List bears all the hallmarks of a Deaver thriller: nothing is quite what it seems to be, and, though literally a race against the clock, is told backward. Just when you thought Deaver couldn’t get any more devious, he trumps himself, giving new meaning to the concept of twists and turns in thriller fiction. (FINAL COVER TO COME)

Maybe not.” She tugged the thick sheets of cloth closer together, as if someone were scanning the windows with binoculars. Or a sniper rifle. Gabriela added ruefully, “Of course, I didn’t see anybody earlier today, either. Until it was too late.” Sam Easton asked, “But who would it be out there?” “Who? It could be anyone.

You will never look at a duck the same way again! DANIEL breaks new ground with outstanding photography and design by noted food photographer Thomas Schauer.

Excerpt:

Our itinerary was Daniel Boulud’s doing. Daniel, who is on a first-name basis with the entire world, was also our Daniel, our boss, our patron, our team captain, our instructor, and the only person any of us knew who actually knew how to make everything. For him, these dishes loomed gigantic. They were bigger than what they seemed to be, and what they seemed to be was already very big. They were food, and craft, and art, and metaphor. They were “iconic,” he said. What does that mean? I asked. He shrugged. I asked again, pressing a little. He mumbled something that sounded French but may have been English and was probably both, and conveyed, more or less, that the dishes would do the talking. Watch, he seemed to be saying. Taste. Smell. Think. Find out what was being expressed in the food. A poet works with words, a painter with paint. These dishes are what he is.

Egghead

The Book of Jezebel

Or, You Can’t Survive on Ideas Alone

An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Lady Things

Bo Burnham Drawings by Chance Bone

Edited by Anna Holmes

Like a lost, twisted work of Shel Silverstein, EGGHEAD is an aggressively charming collection of hilarious and absurd writing and illustrations from one of today’s most popular young comedians.

From Jezebel.com, the popular website for women, comes a must-read encyclopedic guide to feminism, fashion, sex, and much more.

Within months of Jezebel’s May 2007 appearance on the new media scene, fans of the blog began referring to themselves as “Jezzies” in comment threads and organizing reader meet-ups in cities all over the world. By 2008, the devotion of the selfappointed Jezzies reached such a fever pitch that the New York Times ran a feature story about them and parody blogs and copycat websites began popping up right and left. With contributions from the writers and creatives who give the site its distinctive tone and broad influence, THE BOOK OF JEZEBEL is an encyclopedia of everything important to the modern woman. Running the gamut from Abzug, Bella to Xena, Yogurt, and Zits, and filled with entertaining sidebars and arresting images, this is a must-read for the modern woman.

Bo Burnham was a precocious teenager living in his parents’ attic in Massachusetts when he started posting funny songs to YouTube. More than 100 million people viewed those videos, turning Bo into an online sensation with a huge and dedicated following. Writer/producer Judd Apatow championed the young comedian, and Bo taped his first Comedy Central special at age 18, the youngest in the channel’s history. Now Bo is a rising star in the comedy world, revered for his utterly original and highly intelligent voice. In EGGHEAD, Bo brings his brand of brainy comedy to the page in the form of off-kilter writings, thoughts, poems, and more. Teaming up with his longtime friend, artist, and illustrator Chance Bone, Bo takes on everything from painful breakups to bald barbers, in a wacky and witty collection that will have readers laughing out loud.

Jezebel boasts 3.9 million monthly unique U.S. visitors (5.7 million worldwide), and an average of 40 million pageviews a month, surpassing that of many women’s magazines. Advertising Age calls Jezebel “one of the few genuinely intelligent repositories of media/marketing/fashion commentary and celebrity deflation;” Forbes deems it one of the top 100 websites for women; and Access Communications has ranked it the most influential woman’s site on the web. Anna has worked as an editor and writer covering pop culture, sex and politics for the print publications and websites of the Washington Post, Glamour, In Style, Entertainment Weekly, Salon, The New Yorker and the New York Times. Her previous book, Hell Hath No Fury: Women’s Letters From The End Of The Affair, was published by Ballantine in 2002. Her radio and television work includes appearances on NPR, the Today show, and CNN.

Without Their Permission

My Father, My President

How the 21st Century Will Be Made, Not Managed

A Personal Account of the Life of George H.W. Bush

Alexis Ohanian

Doro Bush Koch

The co-founder of reddit.com delivers a totally revolutionary book for aspiring entrepreneurs who are eager to embrace the future of the Web for fun, profit, and the good of humankind.

The definitive account of the fascinating life and storied career of former President George H.W. Bush, written by his only daughter with his full cooperation—now revised and updated.

The world isn’t flat, but the World Wide Web is. As Alexis Ohanian learned when he helped to co-found the immensely popular reddit.com, the Internet is the most powerful and democratic tool for disseminating information in human history. And when that power is harnessed to create new communities, technologies, businesses, or charities, the results can be absolutely stunning. Now, Ohanian shares his ideas, tips, and even his own creative doodles about harnessing the power of the Web for good. Along the way, he will share his philosophy with young entrepreneurs all over the globe. At 29, Ohanian is the essence of the hip college grad who wanted to start his own venture online. After graduating from the University of Virginia, Ohanian did just that and sold Reddit for millions of dollars. WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION is his personal guidebook and will teach aspiring entrepreneurs how to follow in his footsteps.

Much has happened to George H.W. Bush and the country since the initial publication of MY FATHER, MY PRESIDENT. His nemesis Saddam Hussein has been captured and executed. His son George W. Bush has left the White House and his grandson George P. Bush has filed to run for public office in Texas. In short, life goes on for 41, and this updated edition offers fascinating new details about his tenure as head of the Republican National Committee during Watergate, his time as Ambassador to the U.N. and America’s liaison to China, and, of course, his stint as vice president for eight years under Ronald Reagan and his own four years as president. It also sheds new light on his unlikely friendship with former rival Bill Clinton and current president Barack Obama. Distinguished by its many first-person accounts, never-before-published photos, and a foreword by Barbara Bush, MY FATHER, MY PRESIDENT is at once the history of a great man, and the chronicle of a rapidly changing nation.

Named by Forbes as “the Mayor of the Internet,” and cited by Inc. magazine as one of their “30 under 30” rising stars, Ohanian was directly involved in organizing President Obama’s Q&A session on Reddit and maintains connections with high-profile Redditors such as Stephen Colbert. He has been featured in the Washington Post and Forbes, among other major news outlets, and will be the featured keynote speaker at SXSW 2013. In addition to starting Reddit, the author has also been instrumental in other successful online ventures, including HipMunk and BreadPig. He continues to advise and invest in a number of online startup companies.

President George H.W. Bush will never write an autobiography. With that in mind, Doro Bush Koch has re-interviewed hundreds of the president’s friends and associates, conducted scores of interviews with dignitaries; tapped the memories of family members, including her mother, her four brothers, and her father himself; and collected new information from the former president’s never-before released files. This extraordinary memoir contains contributions from Bill Clinton, Colin Powell, James Baker, and Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr., among many others. When published in 2006, MY FATHER, MY PRESIDENT was an instant New York Times bestseller and sold more than 78,000 copies. Doro Bush Koch is the first living woman in American history to have both a father and a brother serve as President of the United States.

WHITE FIRE is inspired by literary history: the famous, real-life meeting between Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Oscar Wilde.

Written by Preston & Child and included in the novel, it has received official endorsement from the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle estate.

Corrie Swanson sets out to solve a longforgotten mystery. In 1876, in a remote mining camp called Roaring Fork in the Colorado Rockies, several miners were killed in devastating grizzly bear attacks. Now, the town has become an exclusive ski resort and its historic cemetery has been dug up to make way for development. Corrie has arranged to examine the remains of the dead miners. But in doing so she makes a shocking discovery that threatens the resort’s very existence. The town’s leaders, trying to stop her from exposing their community’s dark and bloody past, arrest and jail her. Special Agent Pendergast of the FBI arrives to help—just as a series of brutal arson attacks on multimillion dollar homes terrify the town and drive away tourists.

Somerset Leila Meacham

Gone with the Wind meets The Help in the stunning prequel to Leila Meacham’s bestselling family epic Roses, “as large, romantic, and American a tale as Texas itself.”

Praise for Leila Meacham:

One hundred fifty years of Roses’ Tolivers, Warwicks, and DuMonts! We begin in the antebellum South on Plantation Alley in South Carolina, where Silas Toliver, deprived of his inheritance, joins up with his best friend Jeremy Warwick to plan a wagon train expedition to   the promise of a new territory called Texas. Love, marriage, friendship, b etrayal, tragedy, and triumph—all the ingredients that made so many love Roses—are here, played out against an amazing backdrop of slavery, western expansion, abolition, the Civil War, and American and Texas history. ●●

(Booklist)

“It’s been almost 30 years since the heyday of giant epics…but Meacham’s debut might bring them back.” —Library Journal on Roses Leila Meacham lives in San Antonio, Texas.

Excerpt:

No wonder Silas, now twenty-nine, feeling betrayed and embittered, wished to abandon the land of his birth and head with Jeremy Warwick for the “black waxy” soil in the eastern part of Texas, superb for growing cotton, so the reports came back. How sad that he should leave with his heart harboring unjust ill will toward his father, for Elizabeth knew something that Silas did not. Benjamin Toliver had set aside his love for his wife out of love for his younger son. Her husband had left her in the care of a lumbering bachelor son who most likely would never marry, and she would grow old without the joy of grandchildren to cherish and spoil. She would probably live to regret it, but she’d let Silas—callous to her love for her adorable grandson and the girl who would soon become his second wife—go to Texas without ever knowing his father had fashioned his will to set him free.

Rose Kennedy’s Family Album

From the Fitzgerald Kennedy Private Collection, 1878-1946 (Illustrated Edition) foreword by Caroline Kennedy

A collection of over 300 photos—many never-beforeseen—of the early years of the Kennedy family, collected by Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy and presented with a foreword by her granddaughter Caroline.

●●

The Kennedys remain one of the most intriguing families in American history, and this new collection of private photographs will generate considerable media interest. We will publish in November, which marks the 50 anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination. th

Publication of Rose Kennedy's Family Album will be supported by both the John F. Kennedy Library and Museum and Caroline Kennedy.

Caroline Kennedy lives in New York City.

Photo by Bachrach

Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy first contributed family photographs to the John F. Kennedy Library in 1975, and added to the Library’s collection over the course of many years. A selection from this bounty of exquisite photos is presented here with passages from Rose’s own writings, diary entries, and letters, along with other ephemera from the Kennedy Library archives. This remarkable history dates from 1878 through 1946—up to the aftermath of WWII and the beginning of JFK’s political career—and covers everything from the family’s first home to beach vacations, from children’s birthdays to first Communions. The images capture the formative years of a uniquely American dynasty, imparting a glowing nostalgia to the period and detailing the family’s progress as it grows from a pair of turn-of-the-century newlyweds into a populous, vibrant clan of hopeful young men and women on the brink of their brilliant destinies. This is a piece of Americana that readers will treasure.

The success of such books as Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy (Hyperion, 2011), which was a #1 New York Times bestseller, and Edward M. Kennedy’s True Compass (Twelve, 978-0-446-53925-8, 9/09), which was also a #1 New York Times bestseller, demonstrates the public’s enduring fascination with the Kennedys.

Reformed from his days of covert-operations, Paul Janson has set a new mission for himself. Working in partnership with champion sharpshooter Jessica Kincaid, he rehabilitates disenchanted agents and helps them create new lives outside of the violent intelligence sector. Janson also takes on independent assignments—for a fee, he’ll use his skills to resolve international crises. But only those actions that he believes contribute to the greater good of all. When oil executive Kingsman Helms begs Janson to rescue his kidnapped wife, Allegra, from Somali pirates, Janson and Kincaid seize the opportunity. At last they can derail American Synergy Corporation’s scheme to subvert sovereign nations into wholly-owned subsidiaries. But the pirates are the least lethal threat in the violent chaos of oil-rich East Africa, and when Janson and Kincaid stumble into a bewildering storm of plots and counterplots, their fight to survive may disrupt the entire region, and beyond....

The Pound a Day Diet

Cliff Notes

Lose Up to 5 Pounds in 5 Days by Eating the Foods You Love

Leadership Lessons from the Ledge

Rocco DiSpirito

Alison Levine

On the heels of his #1 New York Times bestselling Now Eat This! series, celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito returns with a brand new, cutting-edge concept in accelerated weight-loss.

A powerful book of leadership lessons from the fearless mountain climber and adventurer Alison Levine.

Johnathon Pushnik

THE POUND A DAY DIET is an accelerated program designed to help dieters lose up to five pounds every five days—without frustrating plateaus—while enjoying all their favorite foods. It rewrites every carb/fat/calorie rule in the book! This delicious, easy-to-use, plan is specifically formulated as a Mediterranean-style diet that is carb and calorie corrected to turbocharge metabolism and weight loss. Complete with menus for 28 days (four five-day plans and four weekend plans), dieters first follow the five-day plan, switch over to the weekend plan, return to the five-day plan for the second week, and continue with the weekend plan— alternating like this right down to their goal weight. To help readers, Rocco has created 50 all-new lightning-quick 5 ingredient recipes, as well as ready-made suggestions for those who simply cannot find the time to cook; a primer on healthy and fast cooking techniques; calorie-calibrated menus and shopping lists; and a lifestyle plan for maintaining a lean, healthy body for life.

As a high-altitude mountaineer and polar explorer, Levine has ascended the highest peaks on every continent and has also skied to both the North and South Poles. In 2010 at age 44, she completed the Adventure Grand Slam by reaching the summit of Mt. Everest. Born with a heart-condition that has resulted in three separate surgical procedures, she has spent her life overcoming obstacles and demonstrating extraordinary leadership every step of the way. When not out on the trail, she is an adjunct instructor at the United States Military Academy, teaching leadership skills in extreme environments to the cadets at West Point. She is also one of the leading motivational speakers for Keppler’s, one of the nation’s top speakers bureaus. In CLIFF NOTES, Levine tells her first-hand stories of contrarian leadership, and uses each chapter to detail a particular adventure—along with precise lessons she has learned that can be applied to any business or personal situation. ●●

An Insider Unmasks the New Economic Superpower Henry M. Paulson, Jr.

●●

Hank Paulson, former Secretary of the U.S. Treasury and CEO of Goldman Sachs, draws on his high-level contacts to examine the possibility of China overtaking the U.S. as the world’s economic superpower.

●●

When Hu Jintao, China’s then vice president, came to visit the New York Stock Exchange and Ground Zero in 2002, he asked Hank Paulson to be his guide. It was a testament to the pivotal role that Goldman Sachs played in helping China experiment with private enterprise. Four years later, Paulson (now Treasury Secretary) was looking at the world’s second largest economy and fastest modernizing military from a different perspective—that of a statesman who was responsible for safeguarding the U.S. financial system from a behemoth he had helped to empower. In DEALING WITH CHINA, the bestselling author of On The Brink draws on his unprecedented access to both the political and business leaders of modern China to answer several key questions: • How did China become an economic superpower so quickly? • Who really runs China? • How does business gets done there? • What are the best ways for Western business and political leaders to engage, and compete with China? • How can Western investors profit in China? • Can China be stopped?

The author’s previous book, On the Brink (Business Plus, 978-0446-56193-8, 2/10), was an instant New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and USA TODAY bestseller, and has sold more than 100,000 copies in hardcover and trade paperback combined. Like Henry Kissinger’s influential and bestselling On China (Penguin, 2011), DEALING WITH CHINA looks at the strategic relationship between China and the U.S. China will continue to be front-page news as Xi Jinping, China’s new paramount leader, puts his own stamp on a country going through a series of growing pains akin to the U.S. in the Watergate Era. Paulson served under President George W. Bush as Secretary of the Treasury from June 2006 to January 2009. He spent over 30 years at the prestigious investment bank Goldman Sachs, rising to Chairman and CEO.

Dealing with China

Hank Paulson lives in Barrington, Illinois.

Excerpt:

Our car sped past the concrete vastness of Tiananmen Square toward Zhongnanhai, the secretive compound of the Chinese leadership. It was the 25th of February 1997, a crisp, midwinter day, near dusk. The globes of the square’s streetlamps had just come on, and their light emphasized the eeriness that had fallen over the city. Deng Xiaoping, the paramount leader of China, had recently died, and the nation was in mourning. I was scheduled to meet with Vice Premier Zhu Rongji, the country’s economic czar. If Deng had been the architect of reform, then Zhu Rongji was the hammer. At the time, I was president and chief operating officer of Goldman Sachs, the investment bank, and, as it happened, I would be discussing with Zhu a crucial early step in China’s march towards a modern financial system, transforming the state-owned phone system into a publicly-traded company. The stakes of this experiment were high for Zhu: reforming China’s state-owned enterprises would mean breaking the so-called “iron rice bowl,” the cradle-to-grave care and support guaranteed by the government through the big companies people worked for. The risk was that these changes would result in soaring unemployment that might lead to social unrest, and Chinese leaders feared instability more than anything.

That Part Was True Deborah McKinlay

A must-read for fans of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and One Day, this vivid and moving novel follows a lonely British woman whose letter to a successful American author sparks a relationship that transforms both their lives.

●●

When Eve Petworth writes to Jackson Cooper to praise a scene in one of his books, they discover a mutual love of cooking and food. Their friendship blossoms against the backdrop of Jackson’s colorful, but ultimately unsatisfying, love life and Eve’s tense relationship with her soon-to-be married daughter. As each of them offers, from behind the veils of semi-anonymity and distance, wise and increasingly affectionate counsel to the other, they both begin to confront their problems and plan a celebratory meeting in Paris—a meeting that Eve fears can never happen.

Deborah McKinlay has published half a dozen non-fiction titles in the UK, and her books have been translated into numerous languages. Her work has appeared in British Vogue, Cosmopolitan, and Esquire. With its unique blend of humor, heart-melting romance, and regret, THAT PART WAS TRUE follows in the bestselling tradition of such beloved classics as the novels of Nicholas Sparks, One Day by David Nicholls, and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.

Granny Cooper's Peanut Cookies

Once the kitchen was orderly and pretty, a reflection of Eve herself, though she never would have seen it, she sat at the kitchen table beneath the window with the view of the plum tree and took Jackson Cooper's—Jack's—postcard from the back of the tan leather folio where she kept recipe clippings, and read it again. Then she went into the library and sat at the roll top desk, where she had sat to address the invitations to Izzy's christening and to sign her divorce papers and to make the lists of food she'd need for her mother's funeral, and she flipped open the lid of the slim blue computer that Izzy had brought her the previous Christmas. There was a contact address on the website.

1 egg, 3 ozs butter, small cup sugar, good cup flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 dessert spoon cocoa, 1 cup peanuts (She liked to roast them in the oven first. I do too.) Cream butter and sugar, add beaten egg, then sifted flour, baking powder and cocoa and, last, cooled peanuts.

In the tiny town of Titan Falls, New Hampshire, the paper mill dictates a steady rhythm of life. But one day, a tragic bus accident sets two families on a course of destruction, irrevocably altering the lives of everyone in its wake. When June McAllister, the wife of the paper mill owner, discovers a dark secret about the crash that threatens to upend her picture-perfect life, she will do anything to cover it up. But the recently arrived Snow family, a group of itinerant ne’er-do-wells with old links to the town, has different ideas— especially Mercy Snow, whose brother is blamed for the accident. She will do anything to save him. When a skeleton is discovered on the Snows’ land not far from the crash site, the stakes of the accident grow higher. Desperate to protect herself, June tries to drive the Snows out of town, but she underestimates the strength of young Mercy Snow, and the ties that bind. As the two women move closer to the truth of the crash, some of those strings are broken, new ones formed, and Titan Falls finds itself leaving history behind as it moves into an uncertain future.

The Choir Director 2

Young Money

Runaway Bride

Inside the Hidden World of Wall Street’s Post-Crash Recruits

Carl Weber

Kevin Roose

New York Times bestselling author Carl Weber takes readers back to church in his latest drama-filled novel.

From Kevin Roose, New York magazine columnist and author of The Unlikely Disciple, comes a vivid inside look at the new generation of Wall Street bankers.

Three years ago Bishop T. K. Wilson’s back was against the wall. His church, First Jamaica Ministries, was on the verge of bankruptcy, and his only real hope to dig the ministry out of its financial hole was a young, hotheaded, womanizing choir director by the name of Aaron Mackie. Despite Aaron’s many shortcomings, Bishop Wilson saw something in him and took him under his wing, at first as a protégé, and then as a friend. Together, the unlikely duo saved First Jamaica Ministries from financial ruin. Now, during his own hour of need, Aaron turns to the bishop for help. Unfortunately, the line he asks T. K. to cross will force the bishop to choose between faith and friendship, or as he puts it, “between heaven and hell.” ●●

Every summer, thousands of top college graduates pack their bags and head to Wall Street to start new lives as investment bankers and traders. But what happens to these financiers-inthe-making once they get down to business? YOUNG MONEY is an unprecedented (and unauthorized) trip inside the well-guarded subculture of the young investment bankers and traders who have come to work on Wall Street since the financial crisis of 2008. Author Kevin Roose spent more than three years shadowing eight first- and second-year workers at Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, and other leading investment firms. Through hundreds of interviews and mountains of original reporting, Roose became a fly on the wall for the college recruiting sessions, pre-hire training programs, 100-hour workweeks, big bonuses, and wild parties that characterize the young Wall Street experience. But he also saw the psychological effects the industry’s collapse had on the twenty-somethings whose careers were just getting started. YOUNG MONEY is more than just a sordid cultural exposé filled with “models and bottles” excess; it is also the story of how the industry’s struggles have changed a generation’s attitude toward money and success. ●●

Known as the Prince of Drama, Weber creates characters, both male and female, that everyone can relate to, making him a popular book club pick.

The fate of the world is more fragile than ever as Pures battle Wretches and former allies become potential enemies. Inside the Dome, Partridge has taken his father’s place as leader of the Pures. His intent had been to bring down the Dome from the inside with the help of the secret resistance force led by Partridge’s former teacher and former classmate. But from his new position of power things don’t seem quite as clear. Perhaps his father had been right. Perhaps if the world is to survive it needs the Dome—and Partridge—to rule it. Outside the Dome, Pressia and Bradwell continue piecing together the clues left to them by their parents from the time before the detonations. Soon they will be able to help heal the Wretches, freeing them from their monstrous fusings and the Dome’s oppression once and for all. But their success also depends on Partridge. Can they still trust their friend and ally to see their plan through, or will a new war begin?

You Should Have Known Jean Hanff Korelitz

A marriage counselor learns that her perfect life is a mirage in the new novel from Jean Hanff Korelitz, author of Admission—now a major motion picture.

●●

●●

Grace Reinhart Sachs is living the only life she ever wanted for herself, devoted to her husband, a pediatric oncologist at a major cancer hospital, their young son Henry, and the patients she sees in her therapy practice. Grace is also the author of You Should Have Known, a book in which she castigates women for not valuing their intuition and calls upon them to examine their first impressions of men for signs of serious trouble later on. But weeks before the book is published, a chasm opens in her own life: a violent death, a missing husband, and, in the place of a man Grace thought she knew, only an ongoing chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster, and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself.

Admission (GCP, 978-0-446-54070-4, 4/09) received stellar praise from the Los Angeles Times, USA TODAY, Christian Science Monitor, People, and Entertainment Weekly, among other publications. The film adaptation, starring Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, premiered on March 22nd. YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN will appeal to fans of Gillian Flynn, Alice Munro, and Barbara Kingsolver, authors who have made women’s literary fiction one of today’s most popular genres. Jean Hanff Korelitz is the author of Admission, a book of poems, The Properties of Breath (Dufour, 1989), and three previous novels: The White Rose (Miramax, 2005), The Sabbathday River (FSG, 1999), and A Jury of Her Peers (Crown, 1996). She has also written for Vogue, Real Simple, More, Newsweek, and Travel & Leisure (Family), among other publications.

Excerpt:

“Look, I’ve been in practice for fifteen years. Over and over I’ve heard women describe their early interactions with their partner, and their early impressions of their partner. And listening to them I continually thought: You knew right at the beginning. She knew he was never going to stop looking at other women. She knew he couldn’t save money. She knew he was contemptuous of her—the very first time they talked to each other, or the second date, or the first night she introduced him to her friends. But then something happened to make her un-know what she knew. And she let these early impressions, this basic awareness, be overwhelmed by something else. She persuaded herself that something she understood intuitively about a man she barely knew was not true at all once she—quote unquote—got to know him better. That impulse to negate our own impressions is astonishingly powerful. And it can have the most destructive impact on a woman’s life. It’s a kind of ‘un-knowing,’ really. And we’ll allow ourselves off the hook that way, even as we’re looking at some other deluded woman and thinking: You should have known. We need to hold ourselves to that same standard, and before we’re taken in, not after.”

Russians

The Crash of 2015

The People Behind the Power

Thom Hartmann

Gregory Feifer

This incisive portrait of a nation draws on personal stories to portray the forces that have shaped the Russian character for centuries and continue to do so today.

Also available as an e-book

In RUSSIANS, Gregory Feifer explains the seeming paradoxes of Russian life by unraveling the nature of its people: what is it in their history, their desires, and their conception of themselves that makes them baffling to the West? Using the insights of his eight years as a journalist in Russia, Feifer corrects pervasive misconceptions about the country by showing that much of what appears inexplicable is actually logical when seen from the inside. He gets to the heart of why the world’s leading energy producer continues to exasperate many in the international community. And he makes clear why President Vladimir Putin remains popular even as the gap widens between the superrich and the great majority of poor. Drawing on his family history as well as formative experiences in Russia’s past and illustrative workings of its culture, Feifer sheds much-needed light on the purposely hidden functioning of its society before, during, and after communism. RUSSIANS is an expertly observed, gripping profile of a people who will continue challenging the West for the foreseeable future. ●●

The Crash of 2015 refers to the social and economic disruption that will be brought about by a spike or collapse in oil prices, a failed euro, and an even more dramatic divergence between economic expectations and realities. But a backlash is now palpable—a backlash against the Banksters, Oligarchs, and Economic Royalists like Milton Friedman, Lewis F. Powell, Jr., Alan Greenspan, Ronald Reagan, Jude Wanniski, Roger Ailes, the Koch brothers, and others who have plunged our nation into economic chaos and social instability.   Like the previous crashes of 1770, 1856, and 1929, the Crash of 2015 will redefine American culture. The endgame could be a long, slow decline into Third World status and oligarchy, or possibly a sudden, violent response. Or, if we wake up soon enough, it could lead to a rebuilding period that will make our nation stronger by giving us an opportunity to embrace the moral motive over the profit motive, and to rebuild an economic model that once yielded great success.

The Apartment

Dallas 1963

A Novel

Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis

Greg Baxter

An explosive and unsettling account of the radicals, reactionaries, and extremists who turned Dallas into the city infamous for the assassination of JFK.

A powerful and elegant debut novel about love, memory, exile, and war that will appeal to fans of Ben Lerner’s Leaving the Atocha Station and Teju Cole’s Open City.

One snowy holiday morning in an old European city, an American man leaves his shabby hotel to meet a local woman who has agreed to help him search for an apartment to rent. Greg Baxter’s clear-eyed first novel tells the intriguing story of these two people on this single day. Told with an affecting and intimate tone that gradually expands in scope, intensity, poetry, and drama, THE APARTMENT follows the couple across a blurry, labyrinthine, and frozen city into a past the man is hoping to forget, and leaves them at the doorstep of an uncertain future. A complex meditation on America’s relationship with the rest of the world, an unflinching glimpse at the permanence of human guilt and despair, and humankind’s lust to cure violence with violence, THE APARTMENT is above all a novel about the bravery and mystery of friendship and love.

In the early 1960s, Dallas was a city brewing with political passions, full of extreme and unlikely characters, many of them dead set against a Kennedy Presidency: rabid politicos like fanatical congressman Bruce Alger and defrocked army general Edwin A. Walker; ultraconservative oil baron H. L. Hunt; and W. A. Criswell, leader of the largest Baptist congregation in the world; along with a host of gangsters, unsung civil rights leaders, strippers, billionaires, and marauding police. Breathtakingly paced, DALLAS 1963 presents a clear, cinematic, and revelatory look at one of the 20th century’s most dramatic events. Beginning with the 1960 campaign for Kennedy’s election, and set against a nation in transition, Bill Minutaglio and Steven L. Davis ingeniously explore the combative, swirling forces awaiting John F. Kennedy in Dallas.

Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination, DALLAS 1963 is a fresh, bold look at a momentous political event, as well as a sobering reminder of the parallels between the heated political passions in Kennedy’s era and our own time. Americans are fascinated by the players and events leading up to the Kennedy assassination, as demonstrated by Stephen King’s #1 New York Times bestseller, 11/22/63 (Scribner, 2011) and Bill O’Reilly’s Killing Kennedy (Henry Holt, 2012). Bill Minutaglio’s work has appeared in the New York Times, Esquire, Newsweek, Texas Monthly, and Outside, among many other publications. He has worked for the Dallas Morning News, Houston Chronicle, and San Antonio Express-News and is the author of several critically acclaimed books, including biographies of President George W. Bush, Molly Ivins, and Alberto Gonzales.

Call Me Burroughs

Things I’ve Learned from D ying

A Life

A Book About Life

Barry Miles

David R. Dow

From acclaimed Beat biographer Barry Miles, the first major, full-length biography of William S. Burroughs in more than 25 years, published to coincide with the centennial of his birth.

In this deeply personal memoir, National Book Critics Circle Award-finalist David R. Dow confronts the reality of his work on death row when his father-in-law is diagnosed with lethal melanoma, his beloved Doberman, Winona, becomes fatally ill, and his young son begins to comprehend the true weight of mortality.

Fifty years ago, Norman Mailer asserted, “William Burroughs is the only American novelist living today who may conceivably be possessed by genius.” This assessment holds true today. No one since has taken such literary risks, developed such individual political ideals, or spanned such a wide range of media. Burroughs wrote novels, memoirs, technical manuals, and poetry. He painted, made collages, took thousands of photographs, produced hundreds of hours of experimental recordings, acted in movies, and recorded more CDs than most rock bands. Burroughs was the original cult figure of the Beat Movement, and with the publication of his novel, Naked Lunch, which was originally banned for obscenity, he became a guru to the ’60s youth counterculture. In CALL ME BURROUGHS, biographer and Beat historian Barry Miles presents the first full-length biography of Burroughs to be published in a quarter century—and the first one to chronicle the last decade of Burroughs’s life and examine his long-term cultural legacy. ●●

Miles was the co-editor of the restored text edition of Burroughs’s Naked Lunch (Grove, 2001), and for CALL ME BURROUGHS he was given exclusive access to Burroughs’s papers. William S. Burroughs was a major influence on such writers as Irvine Welsh, Will Self, Chuck Palahniuk, and Dennis Cooper, filmmakers like David Lynch and Gus Van Sant, and a host of musicians including Joe Strummer, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, Madonna, Thurston Moore, and Kurt Cobain.

Written with the full support of the Burroughs estate and drawing from countless interviews with figures like Allen Ginsberg, Lucien Carr, and Burroughs himself, CALL ME BURROUGHS is a rigorously researched biography that finally gets to the heart of its notoriously mercurial subject.

Every life is different, but every death is the same. We live with others. We die alone. In his riveting, artfully written The Autobiography of an Execution, David R. Dow confronted mortality through his work defending death row inmates. But when Dow’s fatherin-law receives his own sentence in the form of terminal cancer, and his gentle dog, Winona, suffers acute liver failure, the author is forced to reconcile with death in a far more personal way. Based on the journals he kept during his father-in-law’s battle with cancer, Dow imparts his own emotional and personal reflection on mortality, both as a son, and as a father. Through the disparate lenses of the legal battles he’s spent his career fighting, and the intimate confrontations with death each family faces at home, THINGS I’VE LEARNED FROM DYING is an unflinchingly honest account of how illness and loss can ravage a family. Full of grace and intelligence, Dow offers readers hope without cliché, and reaffirms our basic human needs for acceptance and love.

The Scarlet Sisters Sex, Suffrage, and Scandal in the Gilded Age Myra MacPherson

A fresh look at the life and times of Victoria Woodhull and Tennie Claflin, two sisters whose radical views on sex, love, politics, and business threatened the 19th century’s status quo, and shocked the world.

Praise for Myra MacPherson:

Victoria Claflin Woodhull and Tennessee “Tennie” Claflin were true American originals. These vastly forward-thinking sisters’ push for women’s fiscal, political, and sexual independence placed them among the most fascinating, flamboyant, and scandalous women of the 19th century. In just a few decades, they achieved a stunning list of firsts: half a century before women could vote, Victoria became the first woman to run for president, choosing former slave Frederick Douglass as her running mate; Tennie ran for congress and shocked the world by becoming the honorary colonel of a black regiment. Together, they opened the first brokerage house run by women, not only surviving 1869’s infamous Black Friday, but actually making money, and were bankrolled by legendary tycoon Cornelius Vanderbilt amid high gossip that he was Tennie’s lover. They were the first female publishers of a radical weekly newspaper, leaders in the Spiritualist movement, and heroines among the liberal wing of Suffragettes for exposing Victorian hypocrisy in their speeches and in Woodhull & Claflin’s Weekly. In publishing Henry Ward Beecher’s alleged adulterous affair they took on the most famous preacher in America, starting the Trial of the Century that received more coverage than the Civil War. Telling their story with vivid and engaging detail, acclaimed historian Myra MacPherson brings these inspiring, outrageous sisters brilliantly to life, and in doing so deconstructs the manners and mores of Victorian America. ●●

The founder of the Khan Academy—the world’s most popular free online learning site— offers a revolutionary vision for the future of education.

“This offbeat, exquisitely written novel showcases a fresh, forceful young voice in American letters.” —Jennifer Egan, author of A Visit from the Goon Squad

A free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere: this is the goal of the Khan Academy, a passion project that grew from an ex-engineer and hedge funder’s online tutoring sessions with his niece, who was struggling with algebra, into a worldwide phenomenon. Today millions of students, parents, and teachers use the Khan Academy’s free videos and software, which have expanded to encompass nearly every conceivable subject. In THE ONE WORLD SCHOOLHOUSE, Khan presents his radical vision for the future of education, as well as his own remarkable story. He explains: How both students and teachers struggle under a broken top-down model invented in Prussia two centuries ago • Why technology will make classrooms more human and teachers more important • How and why we can afford to pay educators the same as other professionals • How we can bring creativity and true human inter– activity back to learning • Why we should be very optimistic about the future of learning. More than just a solution, THE ONE WORLD SCHOOLHOUSE serves as a call for free, universal, global education, and an explanation of how Khan’s simple yet revolutionary thinking can help achieve this inspiring goal. ●●

Attending a New England summer camp, young Eric Schroder—a first-generation East German immigrant—adopts the last name Kennedy to more easily fit in, a fateful white lie that will set him on an improbable and ultimately tragic course. SCHRODER relates the story of Eric’s urgent escape years later to Lake Champlain, in Vermont, with his six-yearold daughter, Meadow, in an attempt to outrun the authorities amid a heated custody battle with his wife, who will soon discover that her husband is not who he says he is. From a correctional facility, Eric surveys the course of his life to understand—and maybe even explain—his behavior: the painful separation from his mother in childhood; a harrowing escape to America with his taciturn father; a romance that withered under a shadow of lies; and his proudest moments and greatest regrets as a flawed but loving father. Alternately lovesick and ecstatic, Amity Gaige’s deftly imagined novel offers a profound meditation on history and fatherhood, and the many identities we take on in our lives.

Jewish Jocks

The Org

An Unorthodox Hall of Fame

The Underlying Logic of the Office

Edited by Franklin Foer and Marc Tracy

Ray Fisman and Tim Sullivan

A collection of essays by today’s preeminent writers on significant Jewish figures in sports, told with humor, heart, and an eye toward the ever-elusive question of Jewish identity.

An entertaining and fascinating look at why corporations function the way they do—and why our insane office culture might just be the key to greatness for organizations and individuals.

JEWISH JOCKS is a timeless collection of biographical musings, sociological riffs about assimilation, first-person reflections, and, above all, great writing on some of the most influential and unexpected pioneers in the world of sports. Featuring work by today’s preeminent writers, these essays explore significant Jewish athletes, coaches, broadcasters, trainers, and even team owners (in the finite universe of Jewish Jocks, they count!). Contributors cover a vast assortment of topics, including David Remnick on the biggest mouth in sports, Howard Cosell; Jonathan Safran Foer on the prodigious and pugnacious Bobby Fischer; Man Booker Prize–winner Howard Jacobson writing elegantly on Marty Reisman, America’s greatest ping-pong player and the sport’s ultimate showman. Deborah Lipstadt examines the continuing legacy of the Munich Massacre. Jane Leavy reveals why Sandy Koufax agreed to attend her daughter’s bat mitzvah. And we learn how Don Lerman single-handedly thrust competitive eating into the public eye with three pounds of butter and 120 jalapeño peppers. These essays are supplemented by a cover design and illustrations throughout by acclaimed artist Mark Ulriksen. 978-1-4555-1612-4 • $16.00 ($18.00 in Canada) Sports • 5 ¼ x 8 • 304 pgs • Publishing background: Twelve hardcover • Territories: World

In THE ORG, the authors diagnose the root causes of everyday workplace dysfunction, beginning with the economic logic of why organizations exist in the first place, then working their way up through an org’s structure from the lowly cubicle to the CEO’s office. Woven throughout are fascinating case studies—including McDonald’s, Al Qaeda, the Baltimore City Police Department, Procter & Gamble, the island nation of Samoa, and Google. THE ORG reveals why the give-andtake nature of organizations, while infuriating, nonetheless provides the best way to get the job done. Readers will learn: The purpose of meetings and why they will never go away • Why even members of Al Qaeda are required to submit travel and expense reports • What managers are good for • How the army and other orgs balance marching in lockstep with fostering innovation • The reason CEOs often spend over 80 percent of their time in meetings—and why that’s exactly where they should be (and why they get paid so much). But above all, the book demonstrates why organizations are necessary and central to human achievement. ●●

Top Dog The Science of Winning and Losing Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman

It’s a dog eat dog world—don’t be on the menu! The New York Times bestselling authors of NurtureShock are back with an explosive book on the science of competition.

What are the differences between a winning and losing performance? Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman use cuttingedge science to tease out the hidden factors at the core of every great triumph—and every tragic failure. Integrating wisdom from politics, finance, genetics, neuroscience, psychology, military training, sports, economics, education and more, TOP DOG offers counterintuitive, game-changing insights into the nature of competition, such as: the home field advantage in sports is just as relevant in diplomacy and deal-making • women are better at judging risk, while men are better at ignoring it—and how this plays out on K Street and Wall Street • younger siblings are more competitive than firstborns • the shape of an entrepreneur’s hands can be just as revealing as his or her business plans • a single biochemical can predict a winner before an event has even begun • and why stars on a team do deserve special treatment. As President Eisenhower said, “What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight—it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” In TOP DOG, Bronson and Merryman reveal the size of the fight in all of us. ●●

James Patterson and Mark Sullivan

Government assassin Will Robie returns in #1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci’s next blockbuster thriller.

When Chris Schneider, a superstar agent at Private Berlin, Germany headquarters, disappears, he becomes the agency’s most dangerous investigation yet. Mattie Engel is another top agent at Private Berlin, gorgeous and ruthlessly determined—and she’s also Chris’s ex. Mattie throws herself headfirst into finding Chris, following leads to the three people Chris was investigating when he vanished: a billionaire suspected of cheating on his wife, a soccer star accused of throwing games, and a nightclub owner with ties to the Russian mob. Any one of them would surely want Chris gone. Mattie’s chase takes her into Berlin’s most guarded, hidden, and treacherous places, revealing secrets from Chris’s past that she’d never dreamed of in the time they were lovers. On the brink of a terrifying discovery, Mattie holds on to her belief in Chris—in the face of a horror that could force all of Europe to the edge of destruction and chaos…. ●●

Will Robie is a master of killing. A highly skilled assassin, Robie is the man the U.S. government calls on to eliminate the worst of the worst—enemies of the state, monsters committed to harming untold numbers of innocent victims. No one else can match Robie’s talents as a hitman…no one, except Jessica Reel. A fellow assassin, equally professional and dangerous, Reel is every bit as lethal as Robie. And now, she’s gone rogue, turning her gun sights on other members of their agency. To stop one of their own, the government looks again to Will Robie. His mission: bring in Reel, dead or alive. Only a killer can catch another killer, they tell him. But as Robie pursues Reel, he quickly finds that there is more to her betrayal than meets the eye. Her attacks on the agency conceal a larger threat, a threat that could send shockwaves through the U.S. government and around the world.

Hollywood Said No!

The Perfect Marriage

Orphaned Film Scripts, Bastard Scenes, and Abandoned Darlings from the Creators of Mr. Show

Kimberla Lawson Roby

Bob Odenkirk and David Cross with Brian Posehn

The creative geniuses behind HBO’s classic sketch comedy Mr. Show are back with a collection of hilarious, never-before-seen scripts and ideas that may have been just too good for Hollywood.

Also available in downloadable audio and e-book formats

It’s hard to write a film. It’s even harder to get that film made. So, over the years, when Hollywood has said “NO!” to actors/ writers/comedians Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, the two have simply moved on to other projects. But what if those scripts were actually hilarious? What if they deserved to see the light of day? What if Hollywood was just...wrong? HOLLYWOOD SAID NO! includes the full-length, neverbefore-seen scripts for Bob and David Make a Movie and Hooray For America! Presented in a far more readable manner than standard film scripts, the scripts have been fleshed out with brand new storyboards by acclaimed artist Mike Mitchell. And because Bob and David love you, the book even includes a bonus section of orphaned sketch ideas from the Mr. Show days, suitable for performance by church groups that aren’t all koo-koo about religion....Also included is a section of “constructive” notes on each script from a “studio executive.” While the notes are jokes written by Bob and David, they do approximate the feel of the actual reaction the scripts received in Hollywood. The authors will also provide introductions to add context and back story, as well as explain what went awry in each case. ●●

Denise and Derrek Shaw are the perfect American couple. Happily married for 15 years, they have a wonderful daughter, successful careers, and a gorgeous home. They also have a shocking secret: a dangerous addiction to drugs. Denise and Derrek do attend Narcotics Anonymous meetings, but with Denise’s job becoming more stressful it is the drugs that allow her to get through her long days. Then Derrek, who has been clean for weeks, relapses when there is a family tragedy. Once soul mates, this husband and wife are quickly losing the immense love they once felt for each other. Finally, with her parents spiraling out of control, their daughter, Mackenzie, makes an unexpected move to take matters into her own hands. Is her sacrifice too late—or is there still hope and a final chance to save the Shaw family? ●●

The Healing Code

Vegan Cooking for Carnivores

6 Minutes to Heal the Source of Your Health, Success, or Relationship Issue

Over 125 Recipes So Tasty You Won’t Miss the Meat

Alexander Loyd, PhD, ND, with Ben Johnson, MD, DO, NMD Foreword by Jordan Rubin, PhD, NMD, New York Times bestselling author of The Maker’ s Diet

Roberto Martin, Foreword by Portia de Rossi, Afterword by Ellen DeGeneres, Photographs by Quentin Bacon

“A perfect introduction to healthful, conscious cooking.” “D r. Alex Loyd has the defining healing technology in the world today—it will revolutionize health.” —Mark Victor Hansen, co-author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books

—Neal D. Barnard, MD, New York Times bestselling author

The New York Times bestselling cookbook by Ellen DeGeneres’s personal chef that shares delicious, easy-to-make vegan recipes. Roberto Martin, a CIA-trained chef who grew up in a meat-eating Latino household, explains, “What Ellen, Portia, and I learned together was that vegan food is no different than any other cuisine. Flavors that work in non-vegan meals work on vegan dishes just as well; you just have to rely less on the specific ingredients and/or on the technique.” Now, in VEGAN COOKING FOR CARNIVORES, Martin shares over 125 satisfying, meat-free recipes he’s developed working as a personal chef to the stars. Some of the standouts in Ellen’s house include: the Avocado Reuben, Red Beans and Rice, “Chick’n” Pot Pie, and Chocolate Cheesecake. Featuring mouthwatering photographs by Quentin Bacon, this cookbook will appeal to die-hard carnivores and vegetarians alike.

In 2001, Dr. Alex Loyd discovered how to activate a physical function built into the body that consistently and predictably removes the source of 95% of all illness and disease. His findings were validated by tests and by thousands of people from all over the world who have used The Healing Code system to heal physical, emotional, and relationship issues. Loyd’s testing also revealed that there is a “Universal Healing Code” that will heal most issues for most people. In this book readers will discover that code, which takes only minutes to unlock. The book also includes: • The Seven Secrets of life, health, and prosperity • The 10-second Instant Impact technique for defusing daily stress • The Heart Issues Finder, the only test that identifies source issues in a succinct personalized report. ●●

“I have found no other process that is as elegantly simple, effortlessly learnable, inherently portable, profoundly effective, and fundamentally timeless.”

Ellen DeGeneres, a committed vegan, wrote the afterword, and Portia de Rossi wrote the foreword. Photos of the women appear throughout the book. Ellen has promoted the book on her show and website, and will continue to do so. Roberto Martin attended the Culinary Institute of America, became a private chef, and honed his knowledge of nutrition and health, customizing meals to meet the dietary needs of his celebrity clients. Now Martin cooks exclusively vegan meals for the DeGeneres household, and appears frequently on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. With its easy, accessible recipes and direct, no-nonsense approach, VEGAN COOKING FOR CARNIVORES appeals to the same audience that embraced The Conscious Cook (William Morrow, 2009) and the national bestseller Skinny Bitch (Running Press, 2010).

A Swedish bestseller—a chilling novel of psychological suspense in the tradition of Shutter Island.

We want our son returned. This girl is proof that we can save you all. If you ignore our plea, we will kill our hostages one at a time. To be a Pure is to be perfect, untouched by Detonations that scarred the earth and sheltered inside the paradise that is the Dome. But Partridge escaped to the outside world, where Wretches struggle to survive amid smoke and ash. Now, at the command of Partridge’s father, the Dome is unleashing nightmare after nightmare upon the Wretches in an effort to get him back. At Partridge’s side is a small band of those united against the Dome, including Pressia, the young woman whose mysterious past ties her to Partridge in ways she never could have imagined. To save millions of innocent lives, Partridge and Pressia must risk their own and embark on two independent missions with little to guide them. If they succeed, the world will be saved. But should they fail, humankind will pay a terrible price…. ●● ●●

When Daniel arrives in Himmelstal—a private Swiss psychiatric facility—to visit his twin brother Max, he has no idea what’s in store for him. He finds himself unquestioningly accepting Max’s plea for help, and the brothers swap places in order for Max to take care of some business. All he claims to need is a couple of days in the outside world to settle his debt. But soon Daniel realizes Max isn’t coming back, and that the clinic is far from a place of recovery. Struggling to get anyone to believe who he really is, Daniel finds himself trapped in a cruel and highly secretive prison: this is no sanctuary, it’s a living nightmare…. ●●

Respected pastor Ed Bacon’s spiritual guidebook to living through love and connection, not fear and isolation.

In this eye-opening account, now in trade paperback, Cal Newport debunks the long-held notion that “following your passion” is good career advice.

Reverend Bacon believes that every person can live a full and creative life even when obstacles arise if they can use the steps in this book to overcome fear, anger, and sadness to find the core of love within themselves. Readers will learn how insecurity can keep us from connecting with others and finding our own creative power. 8 HABITS OF LOVE will show, through relatable stories, how to create a full, meaningful life by developing simple habits—stillness, truth, forgiveness, compassion, play, candor, and community—and by asking such important questions as: How do I know I’m living the life I should be? How do I forgive those who have hurt me? How do I talk candidly with difficult people? How do I best help others when they need it? And how do I let go of the past and move forward? ●●

Inc.com named SO GOOD THEY CAN’T IGNORE YOU one of the best books for entrepreneurs in 2012, including several other notable awards. Unlike conventional career guides, such as What Color is Your Parachute?

In his now famous Stanford University commencement speech, former Apple CEO Steve Jobs urged idealistic graduates to “chase your dreams.” Cal Newport takes issue with that, claiming it’s not only Pollyannaish, but that Jobs never really followed his own advice. Instead, Newport argues that it’s a person’s talent and skill—not necessarily their passion—that will ultimately determine their career path. Comedian Steve Martin was once asked why he was successful in his career. He replied, “Be so good they can’t ignore you.” That, according to Newport, is the essence to a satisfying career: Skill and ability trump passion. He contends that trying to find what drives us—instead of focusing on those areas in which we naturally excel—is ultimately harmful and frustrating to job seekers. By presenting compelling scientific as well as contemporary case studies, Newport shows that the key to career success begins with discovering what one does well, building upon that “career capital,” and putting every effort in that direction.

Sorensen writes New Adult Fiction, which is a very popular genre focusing on tumultuous romances between younger, college-aged couples. Other books in this genre, such as Jamie McGuire’s Beautiful Disaster (Atria, 2012), S.C. Stephens’s Thoughtless (Gallery, 2012), and Tammara Webber’s Easy (Berkley, 2012) have become major bestsellers.

The dark secret Kayden has kept hidden for years is out. Worse, he’s facing charges for battery against Caleb. The only way he stands a chance against the charges is if Callie speaks up, something he’ll never ask her to do. Callie knows Kayden is going back to his dark place and desperately wants to save him. But saving him means admitting her secrets aloud. Callie and Kayden are stronger than they think, especially when they’re together. Together they move forward, face their demons and the people who put them there, and finally start to heal from their traumatic pasts.

Heidi Hawthorne is a 37-year-old FM radio DJ and a recovering drug addict. Struggling with her newfound sobriety and creeping depression, Heidi suddenly receives an anonymous gift at the station—a mysteriously shaped wooden box branded with a strange symbol. Inside the box is a promotional record for a band that identifies themselves only as The Lords. There is no other information. She decides to play it on the radio show as a joke, and the moment she does, horrible things begin to happen. The strange music awakens something evil in the town. Soon enough, terrifying murders begin to happen all around Heidi. Who are The Lords? What do they want? As old bloodlines are awakened and the bodies start to pile up, only one thing seems certain: all hell is about to break loose. ●●

IT’S YOUR BUSINESS was an immediate bestseller in The Wall Street Journal, landing at #5 in its first week of publication. Ramberg and the book were featured on Today, and in Entrepreneur and Forbes, among other publications. JJ Ramberg is the host of MSNBC’s Your Business, which is currently in its seventh season. It’s the only TV show focused exclusively on the issues affecting small business owners. Guests on the show have not only included top entrepreneurs, but also Senate and House Small Business Committee members, the head of the Small Business Administration, and members of the Cabinet, giving Ramberg the perfect platform to promote this book.

Rob Zombie founded the heavy metal band White Zombie in the 1980s and has been nominated three times as a solo artist for the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance. He has a highly successful career as a horror film director, screenwriter, and producer, and directed House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil’s Rejects, the 2007 remake of Halloween, and its sequel, among others. The feature film of THE LORDS OF SALEM will be released on April 26, 2013. It was written and directed by Zombie, and is his first original screenplay since 2005’s beloved The Devil’s Rejects. The book and the film are very different, with the book offering far more narrative, including significant backstory and context not found in the film. Also notable is the book’s drastically higher body count than the film, making it all the more enticing to horror fans. B.K. Evenson is the recipient of an International Horror Guild Award and the author of 12 books of fiction, most recently, Immobility (Tor, 2012), which NPR called “merciless and unforgettable.” Hardcover ISBN: 978-1-4555-1917-0, 3/13

Mennonite Meets Mister Right

Why I Left Goldman Sachs

A Memoir of Faith, Hope, and Love

A Wall Street Story

Rhoda Janzen

Greg Smith

The New York Times bestselling account of how Wall Street lost its way, with a brand new chapter about the bank’s efforts to discredit its critics and manipulate the media.

—Miami Herald

At the end of her bestselling memoir Mennonite in a Little Black Dress, Rhoda Janzen had reconnected with her family roots, though her future felt uncertain. When this overeducated professor starts dating the most unlikely of men—a weight-liftin’, church-goin’, truck drivin’ rocker named Mitch—she begins a surprising journey to faith and love. Nothing says, “Let’s get to know each other!” like lady problems on an epic scale, but Mitch vows to stay by her side. Convinced that his bedrock character has something to do with his Pentecostal church, Rhoda suits up for a brave new world of sparkler pom-poms and hand-clappin’ hallelujahs. Written with her trademark “uproarious, bawdy sense of humor” (Minneapolis Star-Tribune), MENNONITE MEETS MISTER RIGHT is witty and moving, perfect for anyone who has taken an unexpected detour only to find that new roads lead to rich destinations. ●●

In hardcover, MENNONITE MEETS MISTER RIGHT received winning praise from People, Columbus Dispatch, Tampa Bay Times, and Christian Century, among other publications. It was a finalist in the Spiritual category for a Books for a Better Life Award. Rhoda Janzen’s acclaimed memoir, Mennonite in a Little Black Dress (Henry Holt & Co, 2009), spent more than 40 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, with several weeks at #1. It also hit #1 on the Washington Post and Boston Globe lists. MENNONITE MEETS MISTER RIGHT follows Janzen’s return to faith and love in a warm, witty, and inclusive style reminiscent of Anne Lamott.

WHY I LEFT GOLDMAN SACHS has become required reading for anyone considering a career in finance. Hardcover ISBN: 978-1-4555-2747-2, 10/12

“Provides a rare inside look into a career path to which many aspire: from nothing to Wall Street affluence. It will also be read because of its characterization of Goldman’s integrity.”

“Amazingly light-hearted....Janzen is pointing toward the value of examining one’s own beliefs, whatever they might be, and finding a way to live with them in joy. And if, along the way, you discover that a man who uses a bow and arrow to dispatch a hungry raccoon that comes in through the kitchen cat door can also be capable of the greatest tenderness and devotion, so much the better.” —Tampa Bay Times

On March 14, 2012, more than three million people read Greg Smith’s bombshell Op-Ed in the New York Times titled “Why I Am Leaving Goldman Sachs.” In his memoir, Smith picks up where his Op-Ed left off. His story begins in the summer of 2000, when an idealistic 21-year-old arrives as an intern at Goldman Sachs and learns about the firm’s Business Principle #1: Our clients’ interests always come first. This remains Smith’s mantra as he rises from intern to analyst to sales trader, with clients controlling assets of more than a trillion dollars. He shows the evolution of Wall Street into an industry riddled with conflicts of interest and a profit-at-all-costs mentality: a perfectly rigged game at the expense of the economy and society at large. After witnessing the storied investment bank transform into a place where clients were dismissed as “muppets,” Smith came to believe that the only way the system would ever change was for an insider to speak out. He took matters into his own hands and walked away from a multi-million dollar career.

—The Economist

“Smith has written a field guide to the culture of Goldman Sachs and a fly-on-the-wall account of Wall Street on the skids.”

Jillian Kane has led a charmed life. She is a successful architect who has made a beautiful suburban home—and life—for her family. She’s married to a police officer; someone who lives with violence and danger every day.  Both Jillian and Gordon strive to keep their eight-year-old son Drew and fouryear-old daughter Addie protected from the  harsh realities of  their father’s  job and the outside world.  But inside their family, a more direct, immediate danger lurks. Jillian has kept her husband’s physical and mental abuse secret in order to keep her family together. But when Gordon attempts to separate her from her children, Jillian no longer has anything to lose.  Willing to  take desperate measures to protect them, she soon realizes that it will take brains to beat brawn in a face-off that she has been avoiding for years. HUSH LITTLE BABY deftly explores how desperation drives the darker impulses of human nature, even within the hearts of those who appear to have it all. ●●

Once an acclaimed child star of vaudeville, Baby Jane Hudson performed for adoring crowds before a move to Hollywood thrust her sister, Blanche, into the spotlight. As Blanche’s film career took off, a resentful Jane watched from the shadows as her own career faded into obscurity—until a tragic accident changed everything. Now, years later, the two sisters live in a decaying mansion, isolated from the outside world. Crippled by the accident, Blanche is helpless under the control of her abusive sister, who is slowly descending into madness. And when Baby Jane decides it’s time to revive her childhood act, she won’t let anything—or anyone—stand in her way. ●●

HUSH LITTLE BABY’s central story of the unbreakable bond between mother and child, combined with its tension, emotion, and direct prose, will appeal to readers of perennial bestsellers Anna Quindlen, Jodi Picoult, Gillian Flynn, and Lisa Scottoline. Suzanne Redfearn is a summa cum laude graduate of California Polytechnic University and is a nationally renowned architect, like her protagonist Jillian Kane.

WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE? went out of print in the 1980s, making this the first edition available in the U.S. in more than 20 years. Henry Farrell was a novelist and screenwriter. His most well-known work was the acclaimed gothic horror novel WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO BABY JANE?, which was first released by Rinehart & Company in 1960 and later adapted into the 1962 film starring Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. Mr. Farrell passed away in 2006. A remake of the classic film is being planned, with Walter Hill (Bullet to the Head) attached to write and direct, which will only increase awareness of the book. This edition will include three previously unpublished short stories by the author, one of which was later adapted into the film Hush... Hush, Sweet Charlotte. There will also be an introduction that reveals the inspiration for Baby Jane, along with all the behind-the-scenes drama from the original movie. 

“Chillingly realistic and pulsating with suspense, this deftly told story will leave you breathless.”

—Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author of The Weight of Silence

“Using beautifully nuanced prose and taut pacing, Redfearn skillfully weaves a gripping tale about the dark side of suburbia, where appearances rule, perception is everything, and the lines between good and evil are often blurred. This is top-notch storytelling!”

The Christmas Wedding

It Takes Balls

James Patterson and Richard DiLallo

Dating Single Moms and Other Confessions from an Unprepared Single Dad Josh Wolf

James Patterson’s heartwarming holiday romance—now available in trade paperback.

Comedian and Chelsea Lately regular Josh Wolf shares his misadventures of trying to raise three kids—while raising a little hell at the same time.

The tree is decorated, the cookies are baked, and the packages are wrapped, but the biggest celebration this Christmas is Gaby Summerhill’s wedding. Since her husband died three years ago, Gaby’s four children have drifted apart, each consumed by the turbulence of their own lives. They haven’t celebrated Christmas together since their father’s death, but when Gaby announces that she’s getting married—and that the groom will remain a secret until the wedding day—she may finally be able to bring them home for the holidays. But the wedding isn’t the only surprise—there is one more unexpected gift, and it could change all their lives forever. With deeply affecting characters and the emotional twists of a James Patterson thriller, THE CHRISTMAS WEDDING is a fresh look at family and the magic of the season. ●●

Struggling to make it as a stand-up comic didn’t always fit with being a single parent. But Josh Wolf figured out his own set of rules for making fatherhood work—through trial and (frequent) error. Early picking up the kids from school? The nearby strip club is a great place to kill time and bond with some like-minded dads. Want a drunken heart-to-heart with your son? Make sure there isn’t a Sharpie lying around in case you pass out. Wondering where to take that special someone at the end of the night? Remember that no sane woman will have sex with you in the one-bedroom apartment where your kids are sleeping, even if you swear that you can be really, really quiet. Funny, profane, and strikingly honest, IT TAKES BALLS has Josh Wolf setting his comedic sights on an institution that turns fun-loving guys into carpooling board-gamers—and reminding us all of the two things it takes to conquer fatherhood without compromising manhood.

When THE CHRISTMAS WEDDING was originally released in October 2011, it debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list and remained on the list for a total of six weeks. There are more than 485,000 copies in print in the U.S. alone. Patterson’s previous love stories, Suzanne’s Diary for Nicholas (9780-316-96944-4, LB, 7/01), Sam’s Letters to Jennifer (978-0-31671057-2, LB, 6/04), and Sundays at Tiffany’s (978-0-316-01477-9, LB, 4/08) were all #1 New York Times bestsellers, and sold more than 6.7 million copies combined.

A richly textured and deeply moving novel about the relationship between two extraordinary sisters from beloved writer and award-winning author Nalo Hopkinson.

Garnishing the backing of the wealthiest women in California, Morgan convinces her friend Brooks to run for governor. California has never had a female governor, but Morgan has a campaign strategy that, while non-traditional, is sure to work. She convinces their group of friends to sexually blackmail each of Brooks’s opponents. The team will do whatever it takes to force Brooks’s competitors, to withdraw from the governor’s race one-by-one. All goes according to plan until someone attempts to kill Brooks. Brooks doesn’t know who to trust and the women stand to lose more than they bargained for. ●●

Now adults, Makeda and Abby, born conjoined twins, still share their childhood home. The surgery to separate the two girls gave Abby a permanent limp, but left Makeda with what feels like an even worse deformity: no mojo. The daughters of a celestial demigod and a human woman, Makeda and Abby were raised by their magical father, the god of growing things—a highly unusual childhood that made them extremely close. Ever since Abby’s magical talent began to develop, though, in the form of an unearthly singing voice, the sisters have become increasingly distant. Today, Makeda has decided it’s high time to move out and make her own life among the other nonmagical, claypicken humans—after all, she’s one of them. Makeda finds exactly what she’s looking for in a run-down warehouse space, there’s even a resident band, led by the charismatic (and attractive) building superintendent. But when her father goes missing, Makeda will have to discover her own talent—and reconcile with Abby—if she’s to have a hope of saving him.

HoneyB’s previous novel, Married on Mondays (978-0-446-582322), was published in GCP hardcover and trade paperback in 3/10 and 4/11, respectively.

The Plan

The Man in 3B

Eliminate the Surprising “Healthy” Foods That Are Making You Fat—and Lose Weight Fast

Carl Weber

Lyn-Genet Recitas

The groundbreaking, New York Times bestselling diet plan that helps identify and eliminate the surprising “healthy” foods that are making you fat is now in paperback.

New York Times bestselling author Carl Weber is back with another story of drama, mystery, scandal, and intrigue.

Darryl Graham is new to this Jamaica, Queens, building, but from day one he’s made quite an impression on his neighbors. From his down-to-earth personality to his extreme attractiveness and undeniable swag, he’s the man that every woman wants, and every man wants to be. Unfortunately, in Darryl’s world, what you know can hurt you, and when someone winds up dead, every tenant in the building becomes a prime suspect.

In this revolutionary book, cutting-edge nutrition expert Lyn-Genet Recitas reveals the suprising truth behind what actually makes people pack on the pounds. Carbs and portion sizes, it turns out, are not the problem. Foods that are revered by traditional weight loss programs, such as turkey, eggs, cauliflower, beans, and tomatoes, may be healthy in a vacuum, but when combined with each reader’s unique chemistry, they can cause a toxic reaction that triggers weight gain, premature aging, inflammation, and a host of health problems including constipation, migraines, joint pain, and depression. Now this groundbreaking 20-day program helps readers finally unlock the mystery behind what does and does not work for their individual body. They will identify their hidden trigger foods and build a personalized healthy-foods list that promotes rapid weight loss. In addition to losing half a pound a day while enjoying generous amounts of foods they love, readers will feel better, look better, and be empowered with the knowledge of what truly works best for their bodies. ●●

This book gives readers the power and the program to discover what works best for their body so they can finally lose the weight forever. Recitas has been studying holistic medicine for more than 30 years. She started her practice working with immune response and hormonal imbalance 20 years ago on the West Coast and has been running health centers for the past 10 years in New York and Westchester.

Red Moon

Magical Journey

A Novel

An Apprenticeship in Contentment

Benjamin Percy

Katrina Kenison

“If George Orwell had imagined a future where the werewolf population had grown to the degree that they were colonized and drugged, this terrifying novel might be it.” —John Irving

“Luminous…a gift to any reader searching for meaning, clarity, and perhaps a bit of hardwon joy. Katrina Kenison is the best kind of guide through our life’s passages: a thoughtful, fearless friend.” —Dani Shapiro, author of Devotion

They live among us. They are our neighbors, our mothers, our lovers. They change. When government agents kick down Claire Forrester’s front door and murder her parents, Claire realizes just how different she is. Patrick Gamble was nothing special until the day he got on a plane and hours later stepped off it, the only passenger left alive, a hero. Chase Williams has sworn to protect the people of the United States from the menace in their midst, but he is becoming the very thing he has promised to destroy. So far, the threat has been controlled by laws and violence and drugs. But the night of the red moon is coming, when an unrecognizable world will emerge...and the battle for humanity will begin.

Katrina Kenison’s intimate account of a year of loss, selfdiscovery, and growth will resonate deeply for any woman who has ever mourned the passage of time, questioned her own purpose, or wondered, “Do I have what it takes to discover what is important to me now?” When her younger son leaves home to finish high school in another state, Kenison finds herself at a crossroads, contemplating the new reality of life without children at the dinner table and without the small, consuming tasks of motherhood to give shape and direction to her days. Finding solace in this unprecedented opportunity for growth, she learns that the love she offered her own children can now be carried out into the world. Kenison’s beautifully crafted exploration will guide and inspire every woman who finds herself asking, “What now?”

The Edge of Always J. A. Redmerski

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author J. A. Redmerski delivers the second book in her New Adult fiction series.

A Letter from the Author:

When we first met Andrew and Camryn in The Edge of Never, they were just beginning their journey together. Now, while pursuing their love for music and fulfilling their promise to always live life to its fullest, Andrew and Camryn find their relationship put to the ultimate test when tragedy befalls them. While Camryn struggles to deal with circumstances in her own way, Andrew does everything in his power to hold their lives together, proving that love really does conquer all.

I enjoy writing New Adult fiction because the genre fits perfectly between innocence and responsibility. NA allows me to write about people who have not yet conformed fully to adulthood, who are setting out to find their place in the world and learning how to be independent, but still having fun on levels that many adults have grown out of. NA is a fantastic outlet for self-discovery, loss of innocence, stories about the college years and all of the ‘firsts’: jobs, apartments, serious relationships. After all, in real life none of us go from 17 to 27 overnight and it’s about time there is a place for that in-between, in the literary world.

J. A. REDMERSKI lives in North Little Rock, Arkansas.

Mistress of My Fate

Slow Seduction

Hallie Rubenhold

Cecilia Tan

Page-turning fiction marries with historical expertise in Hallie Rubenhold’s exhilarating series debut that will appeal to readers of Alison Weir and Philippa Gregory.

Book two in Cecilia Tan’s Struck by Lightning series is a steamy erotic romance about a young woman finding sexual fulfillment through a mysterious, wealthy businessman.

22 October 1789:

Karina is sexually and emotionally fulfilled by James, but still has questions about him. She only knows a small portion about the man she is falling in love with, but needs to know where they are headed and what their relationship means to her life. She’s just left graduate school behind and does not know what to do next. James has helped her find a job in an art gallery, and though his interest in her career makes her happy, she feels distanced from him. She doesn’t know how long the relationship with James will last and it’s beginning to drive her crazy. Trapped by her growing doubts, she likens her cravings for James and this new life style to drug addiction.

I shall never forget that day. I shall never forget the decision I made. I was seventeen and so ill prepared for life that I hardly knew how to dress myself, let alone how to board a mail coach or even how to purchase a loaf of bread. When I fled my home at Melmouth Park, I left those who both loved and hated me behind. I threw myself upon the world, dear reader—and see what trouble has come of that. Do read my tale closely, for the warnings of your mamma and your governess were correct; there is much to be learned from a woman of my sort. I fell for every snare and trick of fate, so that you might not. My tale is not for the faint of heart—the prude, the high-minded and moral are likely to take offence. You have heard the lies and slander from others. Prepare now to hear the truth…. As the ignored adopted niece of the Earl and Countess of Stavourley, Henrietta Lightfoot believed that she was destined to lead a quiet life as a lady’s companion to her spoiled cousin, Lady Catherine. However, fate had something else in mind. As passionate love and a suspicious death conspire to tear her from everything she knows, the innocent 17-year-old Henrietta is thrown headlong into the decadence and debauchery of 18th-century London, where she is forced to fend for herself as a courtesan, a gambler, and a spirited intellect of the city.

Never Have I Ever

Second Honeymoon

My (Mostly Involuntary) 25 Years Without a Date

James Patterson and Howard Roughan

Katie Heaney

A hilarious, quirky, and unflinchingly honest memoir about one young woman’s (totally unsuccessful) search for love.

The second book in James Patterson’s thrilling Honeymoon series is now in paperback.

“I would like to tell you about a theory I’ve developed about a certain brand of people I like to call ‘lighthouses.’ Lighthouse people are beacons that call all the cute sailors in ships back to land, beckoning them in toward the light. Lighthouse people are magnetic and luminescent. 

A newlywed couple steps into the sauna in their deluxe honeymoon suite—and never steps out again. When another couple is killed while boarding their honeymoon flight to Rome, it becomes clear that someone is targeting honeymooners, and it’s anyone’s guess which happy couple is next on the list. FBI Agent John O’Hara is deep into solving the case, while Special Agent Sarah Brubaker is hunting another ingenious serial killer, whose victims all have one chilling thing in common. As wedding hysteria rises to a frightening new level, John and Sarah work ever more closely together in a frantic attempt to decipher the logic behind two rampages. SECOND HONEYMOON is James Patterson’s most mesmerizing, most exciting, and most surprising thriller ever.

I am not a lighthouse.”

(FINAL COVER TO COME)

So begins Katie Heaney’s memoir of her years spent looking for love, but never quite finding it—from Cody the T-ball player all the way through college and graduate school heartbreak. By age 25, equipped with a graduate degree, a load of friends, and a happy family life, she still has never had a boyfriend...and she’s barely even been on a second date. Throughout this laugh-out-loud funny book, you will meet Katie’s incredibly loyal group of girlfriends, including beautiful and fabulous Rylee, the wild child to Katie’s shrinking violet, as well as a whole roster of Katie’s crushes. And you will get to know Katie herself—a smart, modern heroine in the vein of Lena Dunham and Mindy Kaling, relaying truths about everything from the subtleties of a Facebook message exchange to the fact that “Everybody who works in a coffee shop is at least a little bit hot.” Funny, relatable, and inspiring, this is a memoir for anyone who has ever struggled to find love, but has had a fair amount of fun in the process.

American Turnaround

Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office, Revised and Updated

Reinventing AT&T and GM and the Way We Do Business in the USA

Unconscious Mistakes Women Make that Sabotage Their Careers

Ed Whitacre, former CEO, AT&T and General Motors with Leslie Cauley

Lois P. Frankel, PhD

From Ed Whitacre, one of America’s most successful CEOs, comes a book of rock solid wisdom that can get America moving again—now in paperback.

The New York Times bestseller, which has become a must-have for women in business, is now revised and updated for a new business marketplace, in celebration of its 10th anniversary.

Internationally recognized executive coach Dr. Lois P. Frankel teaches women how to eliminate unconscious mistakes that could be holding them back, and gives invaluable coaching tips that can easily be incorporated into social and business skills. The results are career opportunities women never thought possible and the power and know-how to occupy the corner office! Stop making “nice girl” mistakes such as: • Mistake #13: Avoiding office politics • Mistake #21: Multi-tasking • Mistake #54: Failure to negotiate • Mistake #82: Asking permission • Mistake #100: Smiling inappropriately. These and other behaviors are why NICE GIRLS DON’T GET THE CORNER OFFICE.

A down-to-earth, patriotic, no-nonsense Texan with a distinctive twang in his voice, Ed Whitacre is that rare CEO with great charisma and extraordinary management instincts. Before being pulled out of retirement to run General Motors by President Obama, Ed Whitacre had spent his entire corporate career in the telecom business, where he ultimately ended up running AT&T. AMERICAN TURNAROUND is Whitacre’s business memoir of his time as a top corporate executive, complete with his insights into effective management—demonstrated by his hands-on approach turning GM into a profitable enterprise once again. GM’s rebound under Whitacre is considered by most to be nothing short of miraculous, with the company repaying its government bailout in record time. Whitacre’s “roll up your sleeves and let’s get to work” spirit has won the admiration and respect of executives and employees throughout the business world. AMERICAN TURNAROUND is a true clarion call to return to “good ol’ American know-how.”

Power Foods for the Brain

A House Divided

An Effective 3-Step Plan to Protect Your Mind and Strengthen Your Memory

Kimberla Lawson Roby

Neal D. Barnard, MD, with recipes by Christine Waltermyer and Jason Wyrick

The 10th installment in Kimberla Lawson Roby’s New York Times bestselling Reverend Curtis Black series.

New York Times bestselling author Dr. Neal Barnard presents a surprising new book on the power of foods to protect and enhance the brain, now in paperback.

Life is close to perfect for the Reverend Curtis Black and his wife, Charlotte—except their son Matthew and his girlfriend, Racquel, are about to become parents at the tender age of 18. Even though Curtis and Charlotte wish Matthew could focus on Harvard instead of fatherhood, they are determined to welcome their new grandson with open arms. But for Charlotte, welcoming her future in-laws is another story. Try as she might, Charlotte can’t stand Racquel’s mother, Vanessa—and the feeling appears to be mutual. When the tension between Charlotte and Vanessa finally erupts, the stress sends Racquel into early labor. Everyone is quick to blame Charlotte, including Matthew and Curtis. That her own husband would side with someone else infuriates Charlotte and strains the relationship they’ve only recently been able to repair. While Charlotte schemes against Vanessa, Curtis is consumed with his own concerns about Deliverance Outreach. A mysterious figure from his past has been sending Curtis cryptic messages threatening to take away Curtis’s coveted position as senior pastor. But who could hate Curtis that much? And how can he fight an enemy he can’t even name?

Everyone knows that good nutrition supports your overall health, but did you know that certain foods can protect your brain and optimize its function? In POWER FOODS FOR THE BRAIN, Dr. Neal Barnard has gathered the most important research and studies to deliver a program that can boost brain health, reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, and other less serious malfunctions, including low energy, poor sleep patterns, irritability, and lack of focus. The plan includes information on: •T  he best foods to increase cognitive function and boost folate, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 •T  he dangers dairy products and meats may pose to memory  • The role alcohol plays in Alzheimer’s risk •T  he latest research on certain toxic metals, like aluminums found in cookware, soda cans, and common antacids  • Plus, a menu plan, recipes, and time saving kitchen tips ●●

Tales of My Delusional Self-Confidence

Lauren Drain with Lisa Pulitzer

Ross Mathews with a Foreword by Gwyneth Paltrow and an Afterword by Chelsea Handler

The explosive behind-the-scenes look at the Westboro Baptist Church—famous for picketing military funerals with their messages of hate—by a young woman cast out from the secretive cult.

From Ross Mathews, one of the beloved stars of Chelsea Lately and After Chelsea, comes a hilarious collection of observations and personal stories.

Growing up in a farm town, Ross Mathews could have wished for a calorie-free cookie tree to grow in his yard. It would have been more likely to come true than his real dream: working in television in Hollywood. That stuff just doesn’t happen to people like Ross. But guess what? It totally did. Now, with his first book, Ross takes us inside his journey as a superfan. From that time in high school when he faced down the most frightening opponent of all (his girlfriend’s lady bits) to his shady past involving deliciously dangerous pot butter, Ross holds nothing back. Oh, and, of course, how he’s turned a pop culture obsession into interactions with celebrities like Gwyneth and Madonna, without having a single restraining order issued against him. Infused with Ross’s unique voice, MAN UP! is a mission statement for anyone who doesn’t fit the mold. Ross is as serious about this as he is about Golden Girls trivia: You don’t need to change who you are to achieve your dreams. You just need to Man Up!

When Lauren Drain’s liberal-minded father set out to film a documentary about the cult-like hate group the Westboro Baptist Church, he found himself seduced by their community. At only 14, Lauren and her family moved to Kansas to join the church and live in the WBC compound. There, she found a new community and a complex set of rules, including curbs on her freedom and punishments meted out unjustly. The WBC’s modus operandi is its aggressive campaigns against everyone it deems sinful—the U.S. Military, the Catholic Church, homosexuals, and more. Over the next seven years, Lauren became an active and vocal picketer herself, spouting the church’s message of hate at public events and at military and civilian funerals with shockingly offensive signs. But as she matured and began to question some of the church’s tenets, she was unceremoniously cast out, and permanently cut off from her family. This is the story of one young woman’s journey into and out of a world of extremists, and of building a positive new life out of the ashes of her old one. ●●

Juicing, Fasting, and Detoxing for Life, Revised and Updated

Humboldt

Unleash the Healing Power of Fresh Juices and Cleansing Diets

Life on America’s Marijuana Frontier

Cherie Calbom, MS, with John Calbom, MA

Emily Brady

From the bestselling author and health and diet guru Cherie Calbom, a holistic guide for detoxification for total well-being, now updated and revised.

Like Deborah Feldman’s Unorthodox and Susan Orlean’s The Orchid Thief, journalist Emily Brady journeys into a secretive subculture—the place that marijuana built.

More than a simple collection of recipes, JUICING, FASTING, AND DETOXING FOR LIFE guides readers toward a lifestyle that promotes alkaline balance by juicing, eating well, and cleansing the body and soul. While most juicing books focus too much on fruit juice (which disrupts the body’s pH balance with too much natural sugar), this book primarily focuses on juices, smoothies, and soups made from vegetables. Now, completely revised and updated, it also offers a guide to the foods richest in nutrients, from Vitamin A to Zinc, and includes new versions of various cleanses to benefit the colon, liver, gall bladder, kidneys, and more. Beyond the body, the Calboms explain the heavy toll emotional, mental, and spiritual unrest can take on the body (and sometimes even encourage disease) and share unique, effective methods for cleansing the body of such toxicity. ●●

Say the words “Humboldt County” to someone and you might receive a knowing grin. HUMBOLDT is a narrative exploration of this famous and insular community in Northern California that has  existed primarily  on the cultivation and sale of marijuana for decades. It’s a place where business is done with thick wads of cash and savings are buried in plastic pickle barrels in the backyard. In Humboldt County, marijuana supports everything from the fire department to the schools, but it comes with a heavy price. As legalization looms, the community stands at a crossroads and its inhabitants are deeply split on the issue—some want to claim their rightful heritage as master growers, others want to continue reaping inflated profits on the black market. Emily Brady spent a year living in this highly secretive community so that she could take readers inside this virtually unknown world of eccentric characters that is undergoing a radical transformation while teetering on the edge of legality.

The first edition of JUICING, FASTING, AND DETOXING FOR LIFE (GCP, 7/08) has sold an average of 9,000 copies annually since its 2008 publication and went to press six times. Cherie Calbom, MS, is a registered nutritionist and the author of numerous successful health and diet books, including The Ultimate Smoothie Book (GCP, 8/01), which sold more than 80,000 combined copies, and Juicing for Life (Avery, 1991), which sold more than 1.6 million copies. Known as “The Juice Lady,” Cherie Calbom has recently partnered with Steve Cesari, founder/CEO of the original Juiceman Co., on products and presentations. She appears as a juice expert in the Time-Life Bella Nutri-Pro Juicer Infomercial. Additionally, she acts as a juice expert for Dr. Joseph Mercola. Together with Jordan Rubin, Calbom co-hosts Living Beyond Organic, a show on TBN. She has been featured in Woman’s World and First for Women magazine, among other media outlets.

American subcultures are favorites among readers and television viewers alike. Whether it’s Susan Orlean’s The Orchid Thief (Random House, 1998) or A&E’s Hoarders and Storage Wars, and TLC’s NY Ink, the fascination with unusual Americans and their communities has become mainstream. Emily Brady was born and raised in Northern California. She has written extensively for the New York Times. Her writing has also appeared in The Village Voice, Time, Columbia Journalism Review, and Plenty. Hardcover ISBN: 978-1-4555-0676-7, 6/13.

“In her book HUMBOLDT, Emily Brady takes us on a rowdy off-road trip into the homeland of marijuana moonshining, where pit bulls guard the fields, cash fills up holes in the ground, and it’s a bad idea to ask anyone you encounter what they do for a living.”

The legalization of marijuana has increasingly become a constant and controversial topic. Seventeen states plus Washington, DC, have authorized medical marijuana, and 14 states have rolled back penalties for possession. In November 2012, Colorado and Washington became the first two states to legalize and regulate the personal use of marijuana. The movement for full legalization is becoming mainstream.

King and Maxwell

Mistress

David Baldacci

James Patterson and David Ellis

Sean King and Michelle Maxwell return in #1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci’s next blockbuster thriller—now in trade paperback!

James Patterson’s scariest, sexiest standalone thriller since The Quickie—now in paperback.

Ben isn’t like most people. Unable to control his racing thoughts, he’s a man consumed by his obsessions: movies, motorcycles, presidential trivia—and Diana Hotchkiss, a beautiful woman Ben knows he can never have. When Diana is found dead outside her apartment, Ben’s infatuation drives him on a hunt to find out what happened to the love of his life. Ben soon discovers that the woman he pined for was hiding a shocking double life. And now someone is out to stop Ben from uncovering the truth about Diana’s illicit affairs. In his most heart-pumping thriller yet, James Patterson plunges us into the depths of a mind tortured by paranoia and obsession, on an action-packed chase through a world of danger and deceit.

A teenage boy, Tyler Wingo, has asked Sean and Michelle to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding his father’s death. Tyler’s father, a soldier in Afghanistan, was reportedly killed in action—but Tyler received a communication from his father after his supposed death. The deeper Sean and Michelle dig, the more questions they uncover. Is Tyler’s father really still alive? Was he even in the military? Is Tyler’s whole life a lie? They realize that they’ve stumbled on to something that reaches into the highest levels of power. But even as the danger mounts, Sean and Michelle are determined to help this confused and terrified young man find out the truth about his family—though they may pay for it with their lives. ●●

The Girls of August

Mo’ Meta Blues

Anne Rivers Siddons

The World According to Questlove Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson and Ben Greenman

New York Times bestselling author Anne Rivers Siddons’s novel about four best friends whose lives are forever changed by the events of one summer.

“You have to bear in mind that he’s one of the smartest mother&*!%s on the planet. His musical knowledge, for all practical purposes, is limitless.” —Robert Christgau

Every August, four women would gather together to spend a week at the beach, renting a new house each year. The ritual began when they were in their 20s and their husbands were in medical school, and became a mainstay of every summer thereafter. Their only criteria were oceanfront and isolation, their only desire to strengthen their far-flung friendships. They called themselves the Girls of August. But when one of the Girls dies tragically, the group slowly drifts apart and their vacations together are brought to a halt. Years later, a new marriage reunites them and they decide to come together once again on a remote barrier island off the South Carolina coast. There, far from civilization, the women make startling discoveries that will change them in ways they never expected. ●●

MO’ META BLUES is a memoir in which Everyone’s Favorite Questlove tells his own story while tackling some of the greats, the lates, the fakes, the headliners, and the almost-were’s of music. He digs deep into the album cuts of his life, as well as pivotal moments in black art, hip hop, and culture. Questlove is many things: virtuoso drummer, producer, arranger, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon bandleader, DJ, composer, and...tweeter? He is one of our most ubiquitous cultural tastemakers, and in this, his first book, he reveals his own formative experiences, like growing up in 1970s West Philly as the son of a 1950s doo-wop singer and ultimately co-founding The Roots. The book also has random musings about the state of hip hop, the state of music criticism, as well as a plethora of stories about playing with his idols, like Stevie Wonder and KISS and D’Angelo and...you ever seen Prince rollerskate?? But MO’ META BLUES isn’t just a memoir. It’s a dialogue about the nature of memoir that questions what a book like itself really is.

Siddons’s previous novel, Burnt Mountain, was published in GCP hardcover and trade paperback in 7/11 and 7/12, respectively. It was a New York Times bestseller and has more than 152,000 combined copies in print. Off Season (GCP, 8/08) debuted at #9 on the New York Times bestseller list, as well as hitting The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, USA TODAY, and Publishers Weekly lists. It has sold more than 415,000 combined copies. Anne Rivers Siddons is one of the most recognizable names in modern fiction.

Public Apology

America’s Obsessives

In Which a Man Grapples With a Lifetime of Regret, One Incident at a Time

The Compulsive Energy That Built a Nation

Dave Bry

Joshua Kendall

“Funny in the best way—the way that David Sedaris, Sloane Crosley or Meghan Daum is funny—in that Dave Bry captures certain touchstones of contemporary American life with keen intelligence and genuine warmth.” —Joanna Smith Rakoff, author of A Fortunate Age

Critically acclaimed author and award-winning journalist Joshua Kendall’s look at the link between obsession and greatness in seven American icons.

When most of us picture Charles Lindbergh, we see a mildmannered, aviator stepping out of The Spirit of St. Louis. What we don’t see is the boy who made detailed inventories of his toy soldiers, or the man who secretly started three German families. Sure, he invented the pre-flight checklist, but he also demanded that his wife and German mistresses account for all household expenditures in detailed ledgers. Like many of the icons that Joshua Kendall puts on the couch, Lindbergh is a uniquely American type—the obsessive. Based on his dogged archival research and extensive interviewing, Kendall also examines Thomas Jefferson, condiment kingpin H.J. Heinz, librarian Melvil Dewey, baseball slugger Ted Williams, sexologist Alfred Kinsey, and cosmetics entrepreneur Estée Lauder. Beginning with a prologue that shows how Obsessive Compulsive Personality D isorder is the connective tissue between several of today’s tech titans and the historic figures chronicled in the book, America’s Obsessives is an anecdote-rich walk down the narrow path between greatness and madness.

Dave Bry is sorry. Very sorry. He’s sorry to Wendy Metzger for singing the last verse of “Stairway to Heaven” into her ear while slow dancing in junior high school. He’s sorry to Judy and Michael Gailhouse for letting their children watch The Amityville Horror when he babysat them. He’s sorry to the visiting music professor at his college for comparing Miles Davis’s Kind of Blue to Bob Seger’s Turn the Page. And he’s sorry—especially, truly—that he didn’t hear his cancer-ridden father call out for help one fateful afternoon. Things are different now. Dave’s become a father himself, and he’s discovered a new compassion for the complicated man who raised him. And maybe if his 17-year-old self could meet his current self, he’d think twice before throwing beer cans on Jon Bon Jovi’s lawn. Dave’s apologies are at turns hysterically funny and profoundly moving, ultimately adding up to a deeply human, poignant, and likeable portrait of a man trying to come to grips with his past.

Featuring previously unknown and scintillating information about giants in American history, AMERICA’S OBSESSIVES demonstrates how the same tics that produce eccentric behavior can also lead to outstanding achievement in a variety of fields, from business and politics to science and sports. Books on fascinating Americans and what made them tick have become must-read bestsellers, as evidenced by Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs (Simon & Schuster, 2011); Harold Evans’s They Made America (LB, 10/04); and The Disappearing Spoon (LB, 7/10), a national bestseller. Joshua Kendall is the critically acclaimed author of The Man Who Made Lists (Putnam, 2008), a biography of Peter Mark Roget, the creator of Roget’s Thesaurus, and The Forgotten Founding Father (Putnam, 2011), a biography of Noah Webster, the creator of Webster’s Dictionary. He is also an award-winning journalist whose work has appeared in numerous publications, including The Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, Financial Times, and BusinessWeek.

Random Acts of Kindness A Pine Lake Sisterhood novel Lisa Verge Higgins

A new novel of women’s friendship from the author of The Proper Care and Maintenance of Friendship and Friendship Makes the Heart Grow Fonder.

With the remnants of her past rattling in the trunk of her Chevy, Jenna Elliott abandons her Seattle home determined to start life fresh. Her journey compels her to the door of two friends:  Claire, an ex-Buddhist nun and cancer survivor, eager to escape her overbearing family for what may be her last chance to fulfill a dusty dream; and Nicole, a professional Life Coach who can’t even control her own teenage son. But what starts out as an impulsive road trip soon becomes an inexorable journey to their past, as the women grapple with who they were, who they are, and the strange twists that have now set them on the road to their hometown of Pine Lake.   ●●
