New Releases: September 1st, 2015

I saw Amy Stewart speak a few months ago, and she made her new book sound so interesting. I'm really excited to read it. I'm also deeply interested in THE MAKING OF ASIAN AMERICA.

Oh, and The Lost Sisterhood is out in paperback! Loved that book.

GIRL WAITS WITH GUN by Amy Stewart
Constance Kopp towers over most men, has no interest in marriage or domestic affairs, and has been isolated from the world since a family secret sent her and her sisters into hiding 15 years ago. One day, a belligerent and powerful silk factory owner runs down their buggy, and a dispute over damages turns into a war of bricks, bullets and threats as he unleashes his gang on their family farm. When the sheriff enlists her help in convicting the men, Constance is forced to confront her past and defend her family --- and she does it in a way that few women of 1914 would have dared.

A glancing encounter with a German peace activist leads young Pip Tyler to an internship in South America with The Sunlight Project, an organization that traffics in all the secrets of the world --- including, Pip hopes, the secret of her origins.

THE ASSASSINATION OF MARGARET THATCHER: Stories by Hilary Mantel
The latest work from the celebrated author of the historical novels WOLF HALL and BRING UP THE BODIES is a collection of 10 stories, Hilary Mantel’s first since 2003’s LEARNING TO TALK. Many of these contemporary tales play with the conventions of genre; there’s even a vampire tale. But the title story, about an imagined attempt on the former Prime Minister’s life, will, not surprisingly, get the most attention. Fiction / Short Stories

DEEP DOWN DARK: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free by Héctor Tobar
When the San José mine collapsed outside of Copiapó, Chile, in August 2010, it trapped 33 miners beneath thousands of feet of rock for a record-breaking 69 days. The entire world watched what transpired above ground during the grueling and protracted rescue, but the saga of the miners' experiences below the Earth's surface --- and the lives that led them there --- has never been heard until now. Biography

THE LOST SISTERHOOD by Anne Fortier
Following the success of her bestselling debut, JULIET, Anne Fortier has written a thrilling historical novel that will forever alter our idea of one of mankind's greatest myths --- the Amazons --- by telling a brilliantly entwined story about a band of women who lived very long ago, and a young modern-day scholar who thinks they might not be such a myth after all. Historical Fiction

MORIARTY by Anthony Horowitz
Days after the encounter at the Reichenbach Falls, Pinkerton detective agent Frederick Chase arrives in Europe from New York. Professor Moriarty’s death has left an immediate, poisonous vacuum in the criminal underworld, and there is no shortage of candidates to take his place --- including one particularly fiendish criminal mastermind. Chase and Scotland Yard Inspector Athelney Jones must pursue this sinister figure, a man much feared but seldom seen, who is determined to stake his claim as Moriarty’s successor. Historical Fiction / Mystery

YES PLEASE by Amy Poehler
A collection of stories, thoughts, ideas, lists and haikus from the mind of one of our most beloved entertainers, YES PLEASE offers Amy Poehler's thoughts on everything from her "too safe" childhood outside of Boston to her early days in New York City, her ideas about Hollywood and "the biz," the demon that looks back at all of us in the mirror, and her joy at being told she has a "face for wigs.” Memoir
