In the follow-up to her celebrated New York Times bestseller Accidental Saints, Nadia Bolz-Weber offers a full-blown overhaul of our harmful and antiquated ideas about sex, gender, and our bodies.
â€śShameless is a triumph. Nadia Bolz-Weber returns to readers the gift toxic religion and consumer culture stole: the gift of sexuality. Her wisdom is unparalleled, her vulnerability touching, her storytelling masterful, and her perspective both ancient and fresh. Shameless will give its readers their joy, relationships, and freedom back.â€ť â€”Glennon Doyle, author of #1 New York Times Bestseller Love Warrior, founder and president of Together Rising
From the celebrated film critic and author of The Biographical Dictionary of Film, an original, seductive account of sexuality in the movies and of how actors and actresses on screen have fed our desire.
â€śUnfailingly provocative. Thomson is pretty much a walking encyclopedia of film history, and this is the kind of subject he can really sink his teeth into. Fascinating and illuminating.â€ť â€”Booklist
A panoramic investigation of the subterranean landscape, from sacred caves and derelict subway stations to nuclear bunkers and ancient underground citiesâ€”an exploration of the history, science, architecture, and mythology of the worlds beneath our feet.
â€śWill Hunt explores the subterranean world in all of its historic and psychological grandeur. This tour de force just might make you want to pull on a pair of rubber boots and strap on a headlamp to get a peek at the places we’ve forgotten.â€ť â€”Scott Carney, New York Times bestselling author of What Doesnâ€™t Kill Us
