<b>A <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER</b><p></p><p><b>WINNER OF THE 2019 NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FOR NONFICTION</b></p><p></p><p><b>A brilliant, haunting and unforgettable memoir from a stunning new talent about the inexorable pull of home and family, set in a shotgun house in New Orleans East.</b></p><p></p><p>In 1961, Sarah M. Broom鈥檚 mother Ivory Mae bought a shotgun house in the then-promising neighborhood of New Orleans East and built her world inside of it. It was the height of the Space Race and the neighborhood was home to a major NASA plant鈥攖he postwar optimism seemed assured. Widowed, Ivory Mae remarried Sarah鈥檚 father Simon Broom; their combined family would eventually number twelve children. But after Simon died, six months after Sarah鈥檚 birth, the Yellow House would become Ivory Mae鈥檚 thirteenth and most unruly child.</p> <p>A book of great ambition, Sarah M. Broom鈥檚 <i>The Yellow House</i> tells a hundred years of her family and their relationship to home in a neglected area of one of America鈥檚 most mythologized cities. This is the story of a mother鈥檚 struggle against a house's entropy, and that of a prodigal daughter who left home only to reckon with the pull that home exerts, even after the Yellow House was wiped off the map after Hurricane Katrina. <i>The Yellow House</i> expands the map of New Orleans to include the stories of its lesser known natives, guided deftly by one of its native daughters, to demonstrate how enduring drives of clan, pride, and familial love resist and defy erasure. Located in the gap between the 鈥淏ig Easy鈥?of tourist guides and the New Orleans in which Broom was raised, <i>The Yellow House</i> is a brilliant memoir of place, class, race, the seeping rot of inequality, and the internalized shame that often follows. It is a transformative, deeply moving story from an unparalleled new voice of startling clarity, authority, and power.</p>

The first traces the rise and fall of the Comanches, the most powerful Indian tribe in American history. The second entails one of the most remarkable narratives ever to come out of the Old West: the epic saga of the pioneer woman Cynthia Ann Parker and her mixed-blood son Quanah, who became the last and greatest chief of the Comanches.<br /> <br />Although readers may be more familiar with the tribal names Apache and Sioux, it was in fact the legendary fighting ability of the Comanches that determined when the American West opened up. Comanche boys became adept bareback riders by age six; full Comanche braves were considered the best horsemen who ever rode. They were so masterful at war and so skillful with their arrows and lances that they stopped the northern drive of colonial Spain from Mexico and halted the French expansion westward from Louisiana. White settlers arriving in Texas from the eastern United States were surprised to find the frontier being rolled backward<i> </i>by Comanches incensed by the invasion of their tribal lands.<br /> <br />The war with the Comanches lasted four decades, in effect holding up the development of the new American nation. Gwynne鈥檚 exhilarating account delivers a sweeping narrative that encompasses Spanish colonialism, the Civil War, the destruction of the buffalo herds, and the arrival of the railroads, and the amazing story of Cynthia Ann Parker and her son Quanah鈥攁 historical feast for anyone interested in how the United States came into being.<br /> <br />Hailed by critics, S. C. Gwynne鈥檚 account of these events is meticulously researched, intellectually provocative, and, above all, thrillingly told. <i>Empire of the Summer Moon </i>announces him as a major new writer of American history.

She opens La Maison du Livre, Berlin鈥檚 first French bookshop, attracting artists and diplomats, celebrities and poets. The shop becomes a haven for intellectual exchange as Nazi ideology begins to poison the culturally rich city. In 1935, the scene continues to darken. First come the new bureaucratic hurdles, followed by frequent police visits and book confiscations.<br /> <br /> Fran莽oise鈥檚 dream finally shatters on Kristallnacht in November 1938, as hundreds of Jewish shops and businesses are destroyed. La Maison du Livre is miraculously spared, but fear of persecution eventually forces Fran莽oise on a desperate, lonely flight to Paris. When the city is bombed, she seeks refuge across southern France, witnessing countless horrors: children torn from their parents, mothers throwing themselves under buses. Secreted away from one safe house to the next, Fran莽oise survives at the heroic hands of strangers risking their lives to protect her.<br /> <br /> Published quietly in 1945, then rediscovered nearly sixty years later in an attic, <i>A Bookshop in Berlin</i> is a remarkable story of survival and resilience, of human cruelty and human spirit. In the tradition of <i>Suite Fran莽aise </i>and <i>The Nazi Officer鈥檚 Wife</i>, this book is the tale of a fearless woman whose lust for life and literature refuses to leave her, even in her darkest hours.

<b>From the <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>The Good Lord Bird</i>, winner of the 2013 National Book Award for Fiction, <i>Five-Carat Soul</i>, and <i>Kill 'Em and Leave</i>, a James Brown biography.<br /><br /><b>The incredible modern classic that <b>Oprah.com calls one of the best memoirs of a generation聽and </b> launched James McBride鈥檚 literary career.<br /><br />Over two years on <i>The New York Times</i> bestseller list</b><br /><br /></b> Who is Ruth McBride Jordan? A self-declared "light-skinned" woman evasive about her ethnicity, yet steadfast in her love for her twelve black children. James McBride, journalist, musician, and son, explores his mother's past, as well as his own upbringing and heritage, in a poignant and powerful debut, <i>The Color Of Water: A Black Man's Tribute to His White Mother</i>.<p>The son of a black minister and a woman who would not admit she was white, James McBride grew up in "orchestrated chaos" with his eleven siblings in the poor, all-black projects of Red Hook, Brooklyn. "Mommy," a fiercely protective woman with "dark eyes full of pep and fire," herded her brood to Manhattan's free cultural events, sent them off on buses to the best (and mainly Jewish) schools, demanded good grades, and commanded respect. As a young man, McBride saw his mother as a source of embarrassment, worry, and confusion鈥攁nd reached thirty before he began to discover the truth about her early life and long-buried pain.</p><p>In <i>The Color of Water</i>, McBride retraces his mother's footsteps and, through her searing and spirited voice, recreates her remarkable story. The daughter of a failed itinerant Orthodox rabbi, she was born Rachel Shilsky (actually Ruchel Dwara Zylska) in Poland on April 1, 1921. Fleeing pogroms, her family emigrated to America and ultimately settled in Suffolk, Virginia, a small town where anti-Semitism and racial tensions ran high. With candor and immediacy, Ruth describes her parents' loveless marriage; her fragile, handicapped mother; her cruel, sexually-abusive father; and the rest of the family and life she abandoned.</p><p>At seventeen, after fleeing Virginia and settling in New York City, Ruth married a black minister and founded the all- black New Brown Memorial Baptist Church in her Red Hook living room. "God is the color of water," Ruth McBride taught her children, firmly convinced that life's blessings and life's values transcend race. Twice widowed, and continually confronting overwhelming adversity and racism, Ruth's determination, drive and discipline saw her dozen children through college鈥攁nd most through graduate school. At age 65, she herself received a degree in social work from Temple University.</p><p>Interspersed throughout his mother's compelling narrative, McBride shares candid recollections of his own experiences as a mixed-race child of poverty, his flirtations with drugs and violence, and his eventual self- realization and professional success. <i>The Color of Water</i> touches readers of all colors as a vivid portrait of growing up, a haunting meditation on race and identity, and a lyrical valentine to a mother from her son.<br /><br /> 聽</p>

<b>A unique chronicle of the years 1847-1947, the century when the Jewish people changed the world鈥攁nd it changed them.</b><br /><br />In a hundred-year period, a handful of men and women changed the way we see the world. Many of them are well known鈥擬arx, Freud, Proust, Einstein, Kafka. Others have vanished from collective memory despite their enduring importance in our daily lives. Without Karl Landsteiner, for instance, there would be no blood transfusions or major surgery. Without Paul Ehrlich, no chemotherapy. Without Siegfried Marcus, no motor car. Without Rosalind Franklin, genetic science would look very different. Without Fritz Haber, there would not be enough food to sustain life on earth.<br /> <br />What do these visionaries have in common? They all had Jewish origins. They all had a gift for thinking in wholly original, even earth-shattering ways. In 1847 the Jewish people made up less than 0.25% of the world鈥檚 population, and yet they saw what others could not. How? Why?<br /> <br />Norman Lebrecht has devoted half of his life to pondering and researching the mindset of the Jewish intellectuals, writers, scientists, and thinkers who turned the tides of history and shaped the world today as we know it. In <i>Genius & Anxiety</i>, Lebrecht begins with the Communist Manifesto in 1847 and ends in 1947, when Israel was founded. This robust, magnificent volume, beautifully designed, is an urgent and necessary celebration of Jewish genius and contribution.

And no one is more surprised than she is.<br /><br /> Hurwitz was the quintessential lapsed Jew鈥攗ntil, at age thirty-six, after a tough breakup, she happened upon an advertisement for an introductory class on Judaism. She attended on a whim, but was blown away by what she found: beautiful rituals, helpful guidance on living an ethical life, conceptions of God beyond the judgy bearded man in the sky鈥攏one of which she had learned in Hebrew school or during the two synagogue services she grudgingly attended each year. That class led to a years-long journey during which Hurwitz visited the offices of rabbis, attended Jewish meditation retreats, sat at the Shabbat tables of Orthodox families, and read hundreds of books about Judaism鈥攁ll in dogged pursuit of answers to her biggest questions.
