Happy #PubDay to WHAT WE’VE BECOME, a radical rethinking of the national gun debate from professor, psychiatrist, and gun policy scholar Jonathan M. Metzl.Immediately after a naked white man armed with an AR-15 stormed into a Waffle House in Tennessee and killed four young adults of color, media queries started rolling in for Jonathan Metzl. Though the 2018 Nashville shooting was especially close to home for the Vanderbilt professor, this was nothing new; over the years, he’d fielded thousands of these requests in the wake of mass shootings committed across the country. At first, he advocated for common-sense gun reform, as he’d done before. But as he began to investigate this particular tragedy, a previously unimaginable question emerged: What if the strategy gun safety advocates had taken—the approach he had taken—was all wrong? Now, in WHAT WE’VE BECOME, Metzl puts forth a revelatory reconsideration of the national gun debate and the expert-led movement that persuaded liberal America to frame rising rates of firearm death as a public health crisis. Taking readers through the lead-up to and aftermath of the Waffle House shooting, Metzl illuminates how mass shootings represent more than health problems—they also represent problems of race and governance that threaten the foundations of democracy in the United States. Challenging what we think we know about guns, shootings, and safety, WHAT WE’VE BECOME is a piercing analysis that ultimately leads to a bold new framework for intervention.“A powerful, convincing effort to reframe the discussion around gun control and its discontents.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review ⭐️Image by our talented W.

Happy #PubDay to journalist and bestselling author Perry Garfinkel’s BECOMING GANDHI, a worthy and original tribute to Mahatma Gandhi’s enduring legacy, published 76 years to the date of his assassination.Gandhi championed truth and nonviolence, led the struggle for India’s independence, and staunchly stood up for the marginalized. “When I despair,” he said, “I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won.” Now, in BECOMING GANDHI, longtime New York Times contributor Perry Garfinkel sets out on a three-year quest to examine how Gandhi’s ideals have held up in a world beset by troubling trends. While tracing Gandhi’s legacy through India, England, South Africa, and beyond, Garfinkel attempts to follow six of the key principles that guided the Mahatma’s life: truth, nonviolence, vegetarianism, simplicity, faith, and celibacy. A fascinating and timely quest to discover what it actually takes to “be the change you want to see in the world,” BECOMING GANDHI reveals a new view of this pivotal figure and why his teachings are needed like never before.“Perry Garfinkel’s engaging and delightfully funny Becoming Gandhi shows us how the Mahatma’s message can matter in our lives. Brilliant. Highly recommended.” —Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence ... See MoreSee Less

Our first 2024 title is #OnShelvesNow—and it’s @zibbymedia’s January book club pick! OLIVIA STRAUSS IS RUNNING OUT OF TIME is debut author Angela Brown’s heartfelt comedy of errors about the challenges of aging, embracing the moment, and living our best lives.Olivia Strauss is turning thirty-nine. Not a major milestone and no midlife crisis in sight, she assumes she has decades to check the unchecked boxes of her life’s to-do list. And she’s mostly content in the stable home shared with her college sweetheart and their young son. That is, until Olivia’s best friend—single, city-dwelling Marian, who is living the life Olivia still covets—gives her an unusual birthday present that turns both of their lives upside down: a visit to a trendy wellness clinic for a state-of-the-art genetic test that can predict the exact date of one’s death. Olivia will take inventory of her as-yet-unfinished dreams and fast-track some of them—reigniting the romantic spark in her marriage, learning to cook, and even dyeing her hair a bright bohemian pink—as she discovers one life-changing fact: no matter your age, there is always time to start over.“Written with warmth and humor despite its somber topics, Brown’s debut novel is a poignant, breezy journey into self-examination.” —Booklist ...

Happy #PubDay to THE LAST SHIPS FROM HAMBURG, a stunning “David-and-Goliath tale of the industrial age” (Wall Street Journal) by bestselling author and historian Steven Ujifusa.Between 1881 and 1914, 2.5 million Jews from Eastern Europe emigrated to the United States. This migration of de facto refugees would permanently shape our society, spawning generations of Americans who are essential to our nation’s fabric. Now, in THE LAST SHIPS FROM HAMBURG, Ujifusa tells the largely forgotten, colorful story of three businessmen who, driven by very different motives, made much of this immigration possible and forever changed the fates of millions. The men were Jacob Schiff, the managing partner of an investment bank who used his immense wealth to help Jews to leave Europe; Albert Ballin, managing director of the Hamburg-American Line, who created a transportation network of trains and steamships; and the notorious J.P. Morgan, who tried to take over the lucrative steamship business. With often contradictory goals, these titans of industry forged powerful alliances and compelling rivalries. As he connects the worlds of banking, shipping, politics, culture and religion, nativism, and war, Ujifusa beautifully reconstructs a story with enduring contemporary relevance. THE LAST SHIPS FROM HAMBURG is epic history, filled with drama, centering on people who risked everything for the chance at a better life.“A captivating group portrait of three ‘titans’ of industry who facilitated the steamship routes by which around 2 million Jewish refugees, fleeing pogroms and discrimination, immigrated from Europe to America…This innovative account provides a complex new perspective on the turn of the 20th century.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review ⭐️ ...
