#OnShelvesNow: Writer, linguist, and podcaster Amanda Montell’s latest, THE AGE OF MAGICAL OVERTHINKING. Whip-smart cultural commentator Amanda Montell (known for her books Cultish & Wordslut and hit podcast Sounds Like a Cult) turns her keen lens to the thoroughly modern behaviors and beliefs we exhibit as we attempt to cope with the overload of our hyper-connected world. Deftly combining social science, journalism, and personal storytelling, she zeroes in on the cognitive biases—self-deceptive thought patterns our brains evolved long ago to save us time—that lead us to behave in these curious and irrational ways. The good news is that we are not alone in our irrationality here in THE AGE OF MAGICAL OVERTHINKING. “Montell’s take on how irrationality went mainstream is informed by erudite wit and an eye for telling images.” —Kirkus, starred review ⭐”Rarely have so few pages explained so much, so entertainingly.” —NYT bestselling author Mary Roach“Anyone who’s ever been trapped in their own head can find solace in Amanda Montell’s latest work.” —NYLON ...

Happy #PubDay to GOD’S GHOSTWRITERS, a disruptive and profound new work from renowned biblical scholar Candida Moss.For the past two thousand years, Christian tradition, scholarship, and pop culture have credited the authorship of the New Testament to seven sainted men: Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, James, Peter, and Paul. But the truth is that these apostles did not write alone; in some ways, they did not write at all. Hidden behind these legendary individuals are a cluster of enslaved coauthors and collaborators. But, despite overwhelming evidence that enslaved workers cowrote and meaningfully shaped the most thoroughly analyzed text in history, modern scholarly biases have kept these individuals concealed from view. Now, in GOD’S GHOSTWRITERS, Moss shares the untold story of the enslaved people who created and spread the message of the New Testament—and reveals how their omission from the historical record has led to widespread misinterpretation of even the most foundational Christian concepts. These essential workers had an enormous influence on the Bible and in the rise of Christianity itself—and, with that, the world today. Yet their role has been almost entirely overlooked until now. Surprising and necessary, GOD’S GHOSTWRITERS is filled with revelations for both what it means to be a Christian and how our broader ideas around credit and authorship inform our understanding of past and present.“[GOD’S GHOSTWRITERS] brings the world of ancient slavery to grim life, and connects larger issues of collaboration and credit to the material facts of ancient work, making it impossible to ignore the labor between the lines.” —New York Times Book Review ...

Happy #PubDay to ORIANA, Anastasia Rubis’ biographical novel of the glamorous journalist Oriana Fallaci.In Rubis’ novel, a Hollywood producer approaches Oriana at the end of her life to propose a movie, and the story unfolds of her remarkable career, tragic love, and greatest regret. Oriana Fallaci was born a rebel. She fought beside her father as a teen in Italy’s Resistance against the Nazis and overcame poverty, the lack of a university education, and relentless sexism in the newsroom. In 1973 she was hailed by Newsweek as the greatest political interviewer of her day, famous for confrontational interviews with Kissinger, Arafat, Meir, Khomeini, and other notorious figures. She also did what no journalist is supposed to: she fell in love with one of her subjects, Alexander Panagoulis, the Greek poet and hero. She was ten years older; he lived in a different country. It didn’t matter. Oriana had finally found what she longed for: a full life. But can a woman ever have it all?“I remember Oriana Fallaci vividly and was thrilled to read this novel about her work and her life…In scene after breathtaking scene, we relive a time of great hope when getting at the truth was possible. A truly inspiring debut.” —Alice Elliott Dark, author of In the Gloaming ... See MoreSee Less

#OnShelvesNow: MATH IN DRAG, TikTok sensation Kyne Santos’ dazzlingly fun biography ➕ history ➕ Pride book exploring a world in which numbers glitter ✨ and equations sashay 🧮 💃You may have seen Kyne’s videos on social media, where she has an audience of over 1.5 million. Or maybe you caught one of her fabulous appearances on ABC News, NPR, or CBS Mornings. Across platforms, Kyne spreads her passion for math education and scientific literacy, and for bringing STEM education to the queer community and queerness to STEM.

Kyne educates readers about both mathematical mysteries and the world of drag through her unique perspective. With elegant irreverence, she explores surprising connections, such as the artistry of ballroom culture and the nature of infinity, the illegal joys of Pride and dividing by zero, and the role of statistics in her own experience on the TV show Drag Race. Kyne gets personal while sharing her journey as a queer person forging a path in STEM. She empowers readers of all ages, genders, and skill levels to break school rules, question everything, and embrace math’s beauty. MATH IN DRAG is about more than just numbers—it’s a celebration of inclusivity and the exhilaration of rebellion.Image credit: @hopkinspress ... See MoreSee Less

Happy #PubDay to FEEDING GHOSTS! This evocative tour de force debut from artist and writer Tessa Hulls was the subject of a recent in-depth @nytbooks feature. The graphic memoir, writes NYT reporter Robert Ito, is “filled with compelling characters and haunting illustrations.” Swipe to see a few of them!In FEEDING GHOSTS, Hulls vividly renders personal and cultural history as she tells the story of three generations of women: Sun Yi, her Chinese grandmother; Rose, her mother; and herself. Sun Yi was a Shanghai journalist caught in the political crosshairs of the 1949 Communist victory. After fleeing to Hong Kong with her young daughter, Sun Yi wrote a bestselling memoir about her persecution and survival—then promptly had a breakdown that left her committed to a mental institution. Growing up, Tessa watched her mother care for Sun Yi. Both struggled under the weight of Sun Yi’s unexamined trauma and mental illness. Vowing to escape her mother’s smothering fear, Tessa left home and traveled to the farthest, most remote corners of the globe. But once she turned thirty, her roaming begins to feel less like freedom and more like running away. Extensively researched and gorgeously illustrated, FEEDING GHOSTS is Tessa’s homecoming: a journey into the heart of one family and a remarkable exploration of the immigrant experience, Chinese history, and the complex bonds between mothers and daughters. “A revelatory work as layered as the history it explores.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review ⭐️“Astonishing…From start to finish, this book is a revelation.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review ⭐️“Detailed, vulnerable, [and] harrowing.” —Booklist, starred review ⭐️ ...
