Gizelle was always a reminder that as self-centered as New York seemed to make you think you needed to be, I wasn‘t the only thing that mattered, and my closet job wasn‘t my only purpose. Gizelle didn‘t care if I unpacked boxes of denim for a living...Gizelle helped me stop thinking about myself and my job and just feed my dog because she needed to be fed.​

A love letter to the 1980s, to the dawn of the computer age, and to adolescence - a time when anything feels possible - THE IMPOSSIBLE FORTRESS will make you laugh, will make you cry, and make you remember in exquisite detail what it feels like to love something - or someone - for the very first time.

Traveling with Ghosts: A Memoir | Shannon Leone Fowler
post image
Pickpick

"Shannon Leone Fowler's restlessness in the face of her unimaginable loss makes the reader feel her battered Lonely Planet travel guide was aptly named. Like Cheryl Strayed's WILD, Fowler makes us feel that a hero's journey is our only hope for surviving grief. TRAVELING WITH GHOSTS is a brace and necessary record of love, and beautiful as it is heartbreaking." - Ann Patchett, author of BEL CANTO and STATE OF WONDER

"A 24 hour read. A rip-roaring memoir of addiction that is at once glamorous and nasty, both gaspingly funny and thoroughly gutting. Cat Marnell may have murdered her life but certainly not her writing. These pages have a pulse." - LUCKIEST GIRL ALIVE author Jessica Knoll

"We'll never forget where we were the exact moment we found her. We never saw it coming, and we were never the same. She was a storyteller, a mind-reader, a believer, and a friend. She was one of us. She was Taylor Swift."

Slice Harvester: A Memoir in Pizza | Colin Atrophy Hagendorf

On August 11, 2009, I set out to eat a plain slice from every pizzeria in Manhattan.
On November 22, 2011, two years and 435 slices later, I ate the last one.
This is my story.

How to Party with an Infant | Kaui Hart Hemmings

"Ellie, a wonderful mistake, is two and a half years old. Amazing. Mele remembers bringing her home from the hospital, her little head not yet fitting in the support cushion of the car seat. Mele kept looking back in disbelief. Two days prior she had left her apartment without a baby and now she was returning with one."

Running: A Novel | Cara Hoffman
post image

"The city was like a beacon. And it drew us from wherever we'd been left. For me, the outskirts of a smoke jumped's base in a cold mountain town, for Jasper and Milo the London suburbs and rain-soaked council housing of Manchester. We were looking for nothing and had found it in Athens: Demeter's lips white as stone, Apollo's yellow mantle sun washed, sanded, wind blown to granite..."

Marriage of Opposites | Alice Hoffman
post image

"My father had told me that no matter how comfortable we might feel, we must live like fish, unattached to any land. Wherever there was water, we would survive. Some fish could stay in the mud for months, even years, and when at last there was a high flooding tide, they would swim away, a dark flash, remembered only by their own kind. So perhaps the stories they told of our people were true: no net could hold us."

"The worst thing would be to decide that it was love, and then to discover - after one was taken - that it hadn't been. No: the worst thing would be to decide that it wasn't love, and then to discover years later - old and unconsoled - that it had been. No: the worst thing - the worst, worst thing - was this having to decide."

Faithful: A Novel | Alice Hoffman
post image

"At the hospital nobody visited except her mother. Nobody phoned. Nobody missed her. Rumors had begun in town. She was crazy. It was all her fault. She was bad luck and should be avoided at all costs. Girls who had been friends with Helene and Shelby decided they had lost both friends. It was easier that way. What was gone was gone."

"Though the house cats' play for survival in a human-dominated world is striking and unique, their story has universal implications. It's an example of how a single, small, and seemingly innocent human act - taking up with a petite species of wild cat, and giving it the run of our hearths and, ultimately, our hearts - can have cascading global consequences..."
