Visit Sunny Chernobyl fuses immersive first-person reporting with
satire and analysis, making the case that it’s time to start
appreciating our planet as-is—not as we wish it to be.
A vivid and compelling novel about a woman who becomes entangled in an
affair with Edgar Allan Poe—at the same time she becomes the unwilling
confidante of his much-younger wife.
Mothers and daughters ride the familial tide of joy, regret, loathing, and love in these stories of resilient and flawed women. An aimless college student, married to her much older professor, sneaks cigarettes while caring for their newborn son. On the eve of her husband’s fiftieth birthday, a pilfered fifth of rum, an unexpected tattoo, and rogue teenagers leave a woman questioning her place. And in a suite of stories, we follow capricious, ambitious single mother Ruby and her cautious, steadfast daughter Nora through their tumultuous life—stray men, stray cats, and psychedelic drugs—in 1970s California.
