For the Hopeless Romantic
Chloe is an optimist, but she has no interest in getting swept up in romance. Not like her best friend, Annie, who literally wrote a rom-com thatâ€™s about to premiere in theaters across America… and happens to be inspired by Chloe and her boss, Nick. As the buzz grows, Chloe reads one too many listicles about why Nick is the perfect man, and now she canâ€™t see him as anything else. But Chloe isnâ€™t so sure her own story will end in a happily-ever-after.
For the True Crime Fiend
S-Town meets I’ll Be Gone in the Dark in this stranger-than-fiction cold case from rural Oklahoma that has stumped authorities for two decades, concerning the disappearance of two teenage girls and the much larger mystery of murder, possible police cover-up, and an unimaginable truth.
For the Budding Home Chef
Reflecting on the years she spent working in the male-centric world of professional kitchens, Crenn tracks her career from struggling cook to running one of the worldâ€™s most acclaimed restaurants, while at the same time speaking out on restaurant culture, sexism, immigration, and climate change. At once a tale of personal discovery and a tribute to unrelenting determination, Rebel Chef is the story of one woman making a place for herself in the kitchen, and in the world.
For the Outdoor Jock
The locker rooms of winning teams are crowded with coaches, family, and fans. Reporters flock to the athletes, brimming with victory and celebration. In contrast, the locker rooms of the losing teams are quiet and awkward, and reporters tend to leave quickly. But, as sports journalists Mary Pilon and Louisa Thomas argue, losing is not a phenomenon to be overlooked, and in they have called upon novelists, reporters, and athletes to consider what it means to lose. Losers turns the art of sports writing on its head and proves that there is inspiration to be found in stories of risk, resilience, and getting up after you’ve been knocked down.
For the Pop Culture Phenom
Memoirs and Misinformation is a fearless semi-autobiographical novel, a deconstruction of persona. In it, Jim Carrey and Dana Vachon have fashioned a story about acting, Hollywood, agents, celebrity, privilege, friendship, romance, addiction to relevance, fear of personal erasure, our â€śone big soul,â€ť Canada, and a cataclysmic ending of the worldâ€”apocalypses within and without.
