The Bathroom Chronicles

Friederike Schilbach
Authors:
Friederike Schilbach

For many women, the bathroom is the most intimate of spaces. It is the place where we encounter ourselves in the mirror each morning and every night, getting ready to face the day, or recede from it. THE BATHROOM CHRONICLES is a beautiful, chic, touching, and deeply feminine collection of photos and accompanying short stories (sometimes no more than a sentence or two) by women about their private spaces and most cherished possessions. Lena Dunham reveals the corner by the sink where she keeps her favorite pieces of jewelry, as well as her birth control. Erica Jong snaps her poodles and insists that they love her powder room and to "fluff up their hair" in front of the mirrors. Roz Chast reflects on a shelf in the corner that she purchased from a second-hand store. It's decorated with birds, because she loves birds, and a tiny emu that was given to her by a friend when she was in Australia. Like the bathrooms themselves each of these stories and images is unique--open, private, minimalistic, messy, and beautiful.

An Assassin's Guide to Love and Treason

Virginia Boecker
Authors:
Virginia Boecker

When Lady Katharine's father is killed for being a practicing Catholic, she discovers that wasn't the only secret he'd been hiding. He'd also been involved in a plot to overthrow Queen Elizabeth. With nothing left to lose, Katherine disguises herself as a boy and travels to London to fulfill her father's mission, and take it one step further--she'll kill the queen herself.Katherine's opportunity comes in the form of William Shakespeare's newest play, Twelfth Night, which is to be specially performed in front of Her Majesty. But what she doesn't know is that the play is not just a play. It's a plot to root out Catholic insurrectionists and destroy the rebellion once and for all.The mastermind behind this ruse is Toby Ellis, a young spy for the queen with secrets of his own. When Toby and Katharine are cast opposite each other as the play's leads, they find themselves inexplicably drawn to one another. But the closer they grow, the more precarious their positions become. And soon they learn that star-crossed love, mistaken identity, and betrayal are far more dangerous off the stage than on.

Alex Beyer

Pet lovers and humor lovers will be captivated in equal measure, with more than 75 full-color photographs of cats and dogs in a range of breeds, alongside an off-beat, subversive voice.

What We Keep

Bill Shapiro, Naomi Wax
Authors:
Bill Shapiro, Naomi Wax

Contributors include: Cheryl Strayed, Melinda Gates, Tony La Russa, Joss Whedon, Tim O'Brien, Ta-Nehisi Coates, James Patterson, Mark Cuban, Hasan Minhaj, Daniel Libeskind, and many more! Everyone has that one object that holds deep meaning--some relic that speaks to our past, that carries a remarkable story. What We Keep will reveal the secret lives of objects--and the small, emotional moments we keep from the world but that make us who we are. For example, why would Joss Whedon keep a straw boater hat on his bedroom wall? Or how did a "hideously beautiful" vintage Chanel blazer change the life of one Austin, Texas woman? The objects and stories come from a sweeping range of experiences and demographics--from famous entrepreneurs (Mark Cuban), award-winning writers (Ta-Nehisi Coates, Tim O'Brien), and cultural icons to hairdressers, dishwashers, and dog-walkers. Each story will appear in the form of an "as told to" along with a photo of the object, allowing the reader to see the nicks and scuffs on a locket, a playing card, a pocket knife. Of the countless objects we come across over the course of our lifetime, the objects we keep say a lot about us.What We Keep will provide an intriguing glimpse into the private worlds of various people, and will lead us to question our own treasured things. Amidst the dueling trends of decluttering and over-consumption, this collection is a breath of fresh air, leading us to question what we truly value.

The Heavens Might Crack

Jason Sokol
Authors:
Jason Sokol

Martin Luther King Jr today is an uncontroversial figure, and we tend to see him as a saint whose legacy is entirely uncomplicated. But in 1968, King was a polarizing figure, and his assassination was met with uncomfortably mixed reactions. At the time of his death, King was scorned by many white Americans, worshiped by a segment of African Americans and liberal whites, deemed irrelevant by the younger generation of African Americans, and beloved overseas. He was a hero to many. But to some, he was part of an old guard that was no longer relevant, and to others he was nothing more than a troublemaker and a threat to the Southern way of life. In The Heavens Might Crack, historian Jason Sokol traces the diverse range of reactions to King's death, exploring how Americans - as well as others across the globe--experienced King's assassination, in the days, weeks, and months afterward. He looks at everything from rioting in inner cities to turbulence in Germany, from celebrations in many parts of the South to the growing gun control movement. Across all these responses, we see one clear trend: with King gone and the cities exploding, it felt like a gear in the machinery of the universe had shifted. Just a few years prior, with the enactment of landmark civil rights laws, interracial harmony appeared conceivable; peaceful progress toward civil rights even seemed probable. In an instant, such optimism had vanished. For many, King's death extinguished that final flicker of hope for a multiracial America. With that hope gone, King's assassination would have an indelible impact on American sentiments about race, and the civil rights landscape.The Heavens Might Crack is a deeply empathetic portrait of country grappling with the death of a complicated man. By highlighting how this moment was perceived across the nation, Sokol reveals the enduring consequences King's assassination had for the shape of his own legacy, the course of the Civil Rights Movement, and race relations in America.
