#OnShelvesNow: New York Times bestselling author Guy Lawson’s HOT DOG MONEY: Inside the Biggest Scandal in the History of College Sports 🏀 While the FBI investigation into corruption in NCAA sports has been the subject of much conversation and scrutiny, one perspective has always been absent: that of Marty Blazer, the financial advisor turned confidential informant at the center of it all. Lawson (known for his book War Dogs) spent two years interviewing Blazer before his sudden death in early 2024. The result is a Catch Me If You Can-style look into the NCAA, the FBI investigation, and the true scope of bribery festering under the facade of amateurism. It also offers a behind-the-scenes view of the questionable circumstances of the investigation and it delves into why none of the real kingpins of college basketball were ever pursued by authorities.“[A] propulsive true crime narrative...This thoroughly reported deep dive impresses.” —Publishers Weekly “Lawson thoughtfully explores corruption in this excellent book…[An] evenhanded portrayal of a flawed subject.” —Booklist ...

Happy #PubDay to Ann Leary’s latest, I’VE TRIED BEING NICE! New York Times bestselling author Leary has thrown in the towel when it comes to ingratiating herself with others. In the title chapter of her delightful new essay collection, she reveals how reaching a certain age finally put an end to a lifetime of people-pleasing. Leary casts a wry backward glance at a life spent trying—and often failing—to be nice. Her essays explore everything from flunking online personality quizzes to surviving bat infestations to the mortification of learning ballroom dancing with her actor husband. She recounts, with remarkable candor and wit, red-carpet fiascos and other unique observations from the sidelines of fame, while also touching upon her poignant struggles with alcoholism, her love for her family, and so much more. Leary expands on some of her best nonfiction writing here, including her hit Modern Love essay, which was adapted for Prime Video’s television series Modern Love, starring Tina Fey as Leary. Smart, funny, and surprising, the essays in I’VE TRIED BEING NICE draw on the comic chaos of Leary’s life, giving fans of her acclaimed works of fiction and nonfiction a literary feast of humor and wisdom. “This winning essay collection from novelist Leary (The Foundling) riffs on the trifles and tribulations of her life…The humor lands and the lithe prose elevates Leary’s musings on life’s mundanities. This is a gem.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review ⭐️“Ann Leary is a damn delight. Reading this book was like curling up on the couch with an honest, hilarious, sane friend. Not too sane, though—just the perfect amount. Leary’s stories made me feel absolutely desperate to get out of my forties and into my fifties. I tried being nice, too, Ann. Thanks for being honest instead. Read this book!” —Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author of UntamedImage credit: @marysueruccibooks ... See MoreSee Less

Happy #PubDay to WHEN WOMEN RAN FIFTH AVENUE! Award-winning journalist Julie Satow whisks readers back to a bygone era of innovation and glitz in this dazzling look at the history of fashion amid the golden age of the department store—where men may have owned the buildings, but inside, women ruled.Though the names of these iconic stores, from Bendel’s to Lord & Taylor, are infamous, the stories of the women who ran them have been largely lost to history—until now. Satow chronicles the rise of the department store through the lens of three female powerhouses who changed American fashion forever, battling sexism and corporate hierarchies while creating new and evolving possibilities for working women along the way. As she did in her book The Plaza, a New York Times Editor’s Choice and an NPR Favorite Book of 2019, Satow pairs her love for cultural history with rigorous insider journalism. Though the stores Satow writes about were opulent and sparkling, they also became a mecca for twentieth-century women of every age, social class, and ambition, and indelibly shaped the broader national culture.“Ms. Satow’s carefully researched book is compulsively readable: I found myself dashing through it like a novel. She portrays the women with verve; we get a glimpse into their lives, as well as a sense of what it was like at each of these retail meccas.” —Wall Street Journal“Julie Satow celebrates the savvy leaders who made Bonwit, Bendel’s and Lord & Taylor into retailmeccas of their moment…Clever…Considered in aggregate [Odlum, Shaver, and Stutz] are a force.” —New York Times ...

#OnShelvesNow: Bobi Conn’s equally beautiful and heart-rending new novel SOMEPLACE LIKE HOME. The book explores origin stories, life in Appalachia, the fraught nature of memory, and the ripple effect of trauma through generations. Conn’s 2020 memoir In the Shadow of the Valley recounted her upbringing in rural Kentucky with unvarnished honesty—from the boundless beauty of her family’s holler to the horrific violence of her abusive, addicted father. Its publication led Conn into a surprising dialogue with her mother and to a desire to give voice to this woman she had so long struggled to understand. SOMEPLACE LIKE HOME is the result: the novel is inspired by Conn’s mother’s story and brings the reader to the outskirts of Morehead, Kentucky, alongside three generations of resilient women.“At times heartbreaking, at others heartwarming, this story is an ode to the women not of a particular time but of a particular place, and Bobi Conn shares it all with style and care.”—R. Dean Johnson, author of Californium“[A] fictionalized account of the lives of her grandmother and mother, detailing the remarkable circumstances they endured in a fierce, isolated, often traumatic environment that was, at the same time, possessed of a wild and staggering beauty. Conn is among the most moving and talented of our Appalachian authors. It was an honor to read this book.” —Dr. Kimmery Martin, author of Queen of Hearts and Doctors and Friends ... See MoreSee Less

#OnShelvesNow: TITS UP, bestselling author Sarah Thornton’s captivating study of the intimate secrets and surprising insights that women have about their breasts, combined with sustained observation of five strategically chosen contexts.With an eye for absurdity and double standards, Thornton started researching the stories of TITS UP after she lost her breasts to the threat of cancer. An ethnographer by training, Thornton came to grips with her predicament the way she knows best: through investigative interviews with fascinating subject experts. In TITS UP, Thornton takes her readers behind the scenes on a journey through five distinct worlds: the strip club, the human milk bank, the plastic surgeon’s operating room, the bra design studio, and finally into the forest for a pagan retreat with body-positive “crones” and “witches.” Blending sociology, reportage, and personal narrative, Thornton connects her revealing case studies to broader concepts of bodily autonomy, gender equality, racial politics, and desire. Along the way, she debunks persistent myths, reveals astounding truths, and unpacks women’s rights in ways that the American feminist movement has historically avoided.“[An] impassioned polemic…Enlightening…Deceptively trenchant.” —New York Times Book Review ...
