William Least Heat-Moon's journey into America began with little more than the need to put home behind him. At a turning point in his life, he packed up a van he called Ghost Dancing and escaped out of himself and into the country. The people and the places he discovered on his roundabout 13,000-mile trip down the back roads ("blue highways") and through small, forgotten towns are unexpected, sometimes mysterious, and full of the spark and wonder of ordinary life. Robert Penn Warren said, "He has a genius for finding people who have not even found themselves." The power of Heat-Moon's writing and his delight in the overlooked and the unexamined capture a sense of our national destiny, the true American experience.

Go the Fuck to Sleep is a bedtime book for parents who live in the real world, where a few snoozing kitties and cutesy rhymes don’t always send a toddler sailing off to dreamland. Profane, affectionate and refreshingly honest, it captures the familiar and unspoken tribulations of putting your child to bed for the night. Colourfully illustrated and hilariously funny, this is a breath of fresh air for parents new, old, and expectant*. (*You should probably not read this to your children.)

Following the success of Go the F**k to Sleep, Confessions of a Scary Mommy, and Ketchup Is a Vegetable, a collection of funny, warm, and charmingly profane tales from the frontlines of parenthood by the author of the popular Baby Sideburns blog. Once upon a time you and your partner had a perfect life: dinners out, weekend mornings cuddling in bed, brunch with friends. Then you gave birth to a poop machine (or two). Now, it's all about the pediatrician, breast pumps, princess dresses, and minivans. And discovering that your pride and joy is actually a little A-hole. When your son wakes you up at 3:00 A.M. because he wants to watch Caillou, he's an a-hole. When your daughter outlines every corner of your living room with a purple crayon, she's an a-hole. When your rug rats purposely paint the kitchen ceiling with their smoothies, they're a-holes. At times like these, it's only natural to want to kill them (or yourself). But it's against the law (and there's the suicide hotline). Plus, there's that whole loving them more than anything in the whole world thing. In I Heart My Little A-Holes, Karen Alpert shares hilarious stories, lists, and deep thoughts on the joys and horrors of raising children. Accompanied by cheery illustrations and photos I Heart My Little A-Holes will make you laugh so hard you'll wish you were wearing a diaper.

From the acclaimed author of Shackling Water comes the first great race novel of the twenty-first century, an incendiary and ruthlessly funny satire about violence, pop culture, and American identity. Macon Detornay is a suburban white boy possessed and politicized by black culture, and filled with rage toward white America. After moving to New York City for college, Macon begins robbing white passengers in his taxicab, setting off a manhunt for the black man presumed to be committing the crimes. When his true identity is revealed, Macon finds himself to be a celebrity and makes use of the spotlight to hold forth on the evils and invisibility of whiteness. Soon he launches the Race Traitor Project, a stress-addled collective that attracts guilty liberals, wannabe gangstas, and bandwagon riders from all over the country to participate in a Day of Apology—a day set aside for white people to make amends for four hundred years of oppression. The Day of Apology pushes New York City over the edge into an epic riot, forcing Macon to confront the depth of his own commitment to the struggle. Peopled with all manner of race pimps and players, Angry Black White Boy is a stunning breakout book from a critically acclaimed young writer and should be required reading for anyone who wants to get under the skin of the complexities of identity in America. From the Trade Paperback edition.

I genitori sanno che la realtà supera la fantasia. C’è chi ha architettato sistemi bizzarri per far addormentare un neonato insonne, chi ha combattuto aspre battaglie per rifilare un paio di cucchiaini di pappa, chi ha sopportato con spirito eroico il sottile sadismo dei parenti nell’elargire consigli non richiesti. Mettere al mondo un figlio e crescerlo significa accettare una scommessa che porterà dalla gioia irrefrenabile, alla disperazione più cupa, alla tenerezza che ti scioglie, al sorriso inaspettato di fronte ai piccoli drammi che si consumano fuori e dentro le mura domestiche di ogni famiglia. Attraverso variopinti spaccati del microcosmo grandi-piccini, l’autrice va dritta alla sostanza dell’essere genitore e lo fa con la consapevolezza di una psicologa, ma anche con la visuale della mamma in erba. Con sincerità tagliente e dissacrante umorismo, il libro racconta cosa succede tra il prima e il dopo, nel mirabolante salto che fa di una donna una mamma, spiegando passo a passo come l’esperienza di avere un figlio possa essere un miscuglio micidiale di estasi somma e profondissimo sconforto. Ma non solo di genitori e figli si parla in questo libro: ci troverete viaggi esotici e nonne chiacchierone, torride estati milanesi e tate anaffettive, sogni ad occhi aperti e divagazioni ciniche. Con lo sguardo irriverente ma pieno d’incanto di una mamma che ha abbandonato qualunque mellifluo stereotipo sulla maternità, scoprirete quanto si possa sorridere del più alto dei compiti che la vita ci ha assegnato.
