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.)

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.

Hailed as a masterpiece of American travel writing, Blue Highways is an unforgettable journey along our nation's backroads. William Least Heat-Moon set out with little more than the need to put home behind him and a sense of curiosity about "those little towns that get on the map-if they get on at all-only because some cartographer has a blank space to fill: Remote, Oregon; Simplicity, Virginia; New Freedom, Pennsylvania; New Hope, Tennessee; Why, Arizona; Whynot, Mississippi." His adventures, his discoveries, and his recollections of the extraordinary people he encountered along the way amount to a revelation of the true American experience.

‘I’m going back to what I was twenty years ago. I’m riding across a terrain of buried curiosity, the adrenaline is starting to flow again, and the old obsessions are coming back: I want to start doing cocaine every day, I want to run after every female who passes, I want to smell the smells of Italy again, I want my old life back. It’s a bit late for all that, I know, but who gives a fuck? I want to die stark naked, drowned in a well of Ballantine’s, surrounded by whores. All this I want, suddenly, I want it very much indeed. But I hide it well.’ This is the story of Tony Pagoda, a hero of our time, a man of incredible energies and appetites with a dark secret in his past and a unique perspective on the world. 1980s Italy is Tony’s oyster. A charismatic singer, he is talented and successful, up to his neck in money, drugs and women, enjoying an extravagant lifestyle in Naples and Capri. But when life gets complicated, Tony decides it’s time for a change. While on tour, he disappears to Brazil and an existence free from excess, where all he has to worry about are the herculean cockroaches. But after eighteen years of humid Amazonian exile, somebody is willing to sign a giant cheque to bring Tony back to Italy. How will he face the temptations of his old habits and the new century? A huge bestseller in Italy, Everybody's Right is an extraordinary debut novel from the award-winning film director Paolo Sorrentino. It is a book about Italy and a book about the modern world; a book about Tony and a book about all of us. Through Tony’s irresistible voice Sorrentino illustrates his imaginative power and his incredible gifts for drama and satire.

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.
