VESPER FLIGHTS
A new collection of essays from the bestselling author of H is for Hawk.
"Macdonald experiments with tempo and style, as if testing out different
altitudes and finding she can fly at just about any speed, in any direction, with
any aim she likes, so supple is her style. She writes about migration patterns and
storms, nests as a metaphor for the domestic and the danger of using nature as
metaphor at all. I was reminded of the goshawk, so thickly plumed, so powerful
that it can bring down a deer, and yet it weighs only a few pounds. These are the
very paradoxes of Macdonalds prose its lightness and force."Parul Sehgal,
New York Times
BRAIDING SWEETGRASS : INDIGENOUS WISDOM, SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE
AND THE TEACHINGS OF PLANTS

readers in North America have cherished about the bookgentle, simple, tactile,
beautiful, even sacred.
EARTH KEEPER : REFLECTIONS ON THE AMERICAN LAND
A beautifully written and poignant tribute to the Earth, from Pulitzer Prize-
winning novelist and poet N. Scott Momaday. A member of the Kiowa tribe who
was born and grew up on Indian reservations throughout the Southwest,
Momaday reminds us that the Earth is a sacred place of wonder and beauty; a
source of strength and healing that must be protected before its too late.
Earth Keeper is a story of attachment, rooted in oral tradition. "When I think
about my life and the lives of my ancestors, I am inevitably led to the conviction
that I, and they, belong to the American land. This is a declaration of belonging.
And it is an offering to the earth.
EROSION : ESSAYS OF UNDOING
Now in paperback! Terry Tempest Williams is one of our most impassioned
defenders of public lands. A naturalist, fervent activist, and stirring writer, she
has spoken to us and for us in books like The Hour of Land: A Personal
Topography of Americas National Parks and Refuge: An Unnatural History of
Family and Place. In these new essays, Williams explores the concept of erosion:
of the land, of the self, of belief, of fear. She wrangles with the paradox of desert
lands and the truth of erosion: What is weathered, worn, and whittled away
through wind, water, and time is as powerful as what remains. Our undoing is
also our becoming.
THE RADIANT LIVES OF ANIMALS
From a celebrated Chickasaw writer and environmentalist, a spiritual meditation,
in prose and poetry, on our relationship to the animal world, in an illustrated gift
package. In this illuminating collection of essays and poems, lightly sprinkled
with elegant drawings, Hogan draws on many Native nations ancient stories
and spiritual traditions to show us that the soul exists in those delicate places
where the natural world extends into human consciousnessin the mist of
morning, the grass that grew a little through the night, the first warmth of this
mornings sunlight.
A CAT'S TALE : A JOURNEY THROUGH FELINE HISTORY
The first ever illustrated history of the worlds most noble species from
prehistoric times to present dayas told by the cats who lived it. "With A Cats
Tale, I am here to correct the record and expose the reality of feline greatness.
Our story spans tens of thousands of miles and many thousands of years. It is a
story that humanity has so far stubbornly refused to learn, ignored in favor of a
fantasy history beginning with a lie: the absurd notion that you domesticated us.
Really? If thats what you believe, go find a bobcat and try."
HERBARIUM : THE QUEST TO PRESERVE AND CLASSIFY THE WORLD'S PLANTS
Since the 1500s, scientists have documented the plants and fungi that grew
around them, organizing the specimens into collections. Known as herbaria,
these archives helped give rise to botany as its own scientific endeavor.
Herbarium is a fascinating enquiry into this unique field of plant biology,
exploring how herbaria emerged and have changed over time, who promoted
and contributed to them, and why they remain such an important source of data
for their new role: understanding how the worlds flora is changing. At its heart,
Herbarium is a compelling reminder of one of humanitys better impulses: to
save thingsnot just for ourselves, but for generations to come.
SEAWEED, AN ENCHANTING MISCELLANY
In this exquisitely illustrated portrait, poet and artist Miek Zwamborn shares
discoveries of seaweeds history, culture, and science. We encounter its
medicinal and gastronomic properties and long history of human use, from the
Neolithic people of the Orkney islands to sushi artisans in modern Japan. We
find seaweed troubling Columbus on his voyages across the Atlantic and
intriguing Humboldt in the Sargasso Sea. We follow its inspiration for artists
from Hokusai to Matisse, its collection by Victorians as pressed specimens in
books, its adoption into fashion and dance, and its potential for combating
climate change.
MEMORIAL
Memorial dares to insist on the mundane, thoroughly lived life as a
site of perennial hope, joy, and abundance. It casts a fresh take on the
American family that becomes truer because of its disparate origins,
the queerness of its genesis, and the buoyed wonder it finds in
surviving grief and loss towards the rare and forgiving ground of
difficult, hard-won love. All of this done in sentences clean and clear
as cut glass. This book, in what feels like a new vision for the 21st
century novel, made me happy. Ocean Vuong, author of On Earth
Were Briefly Gorgeous
BESTIARY
Young queer love, family secrets, and a girl who grows a tiger tail, all
told by a language obsessive? Extremely sold.”—Lithub

lived in a womans body. She was called Hu Gu Po, and she hungered
to eat children, especially their toes. Soon afterward, Daughter
awakes with a tiger tail. And more mysterious events follow: Holes in
the backyard spit up letters penned by her grandmother; a visiting
aunt arrives with snakes in her belly; a brother tests the possibility of
flight. All the while, Daughter is falling for Ben, a neighborhood girl
with strange powers of her own...
EARTHLINGS
Sayaka Muratas Convenience Store Woman was one of the most
unusual and refreshing bestsellers of recent years, depicting the life of
a thirty-six-year-old clerk in a Tokyo convenience store. Now, in
Earthlings, Sayaka Murata pushes at the boundaries of our ideas of
social conformity in this brilliantly imaginative, intense, and absolutely
unforgettable novel.
An indelible portrait of an imaginative young woman learning to
survive. Original in conception and astute in its social critique; highly
recommended.”—Library Journal (starred review)
BENEFICENCE
One of the most widely praised novels of the year, from a part-time Mainer, and
author of the beloved memoir Without a Map.
A quiet gem of a first novel. The author's lyrical prose and stark portrayal of grief
and guiltis conveyed so movingly this story is hard to put down. With language
poetic in its cadence and capable of seamlessly transporting our minds and
emotions to another place and time, this accomplished debut will be welcomed by
readers of authors such as Willa Cather, Alice Munro, Amy Tan, or Lisa See.”—
Library Journal
JACK
Marilynne Robinsons mythical world of Gilead, Iowathe setting of her novels
Gilead, Home, and Lila, and now Jackand its beloved characters have illuminated
and interrogated the complexities of American history, the power of our emotions,
and the wonders of a sacred world. Jack is Robinsons fourth novel in this now-
classic series. In it, Robinson tells the story of John Ames Boughton, the prodigal
son of Gileads Presbyterian minister, and his romance with Della Miles, a high
school teacher who is also the child of a preacher. Their deeply felt, tormented, star-
crossed interracial romance resonates with all the paradoxes of American life, then
and now.
THE DECAMERON PROJECT
When reality is surreal, only fiction can make sense of it. In March of 2020, the
editors of The New York Times Magazine created The Decameron Project (inspired
by Boccaccios plague stories written in 1353.) This anthologywith stories from
the likes of Margaret Atwood, Tommy Orange, Edwidge Danticat, and David Mitchell
was created with a simple, time-spanning goal: to gather a collection of stories
written as our current pandemic first swept the globe. How might new fiction from
some of the finest writers working today help us memorialize and understand the
unimaginable? And what could be learned about how this crisis will affect the art of
fiction?
SHELTER IN PLACE
A comic portrait of the months immediately following the 2016 election, Shelter in
Place is also a meditation on the unreliable appetitesfor love, for power, for
freedomby which both our public and private lives are shaped. A delightfully sly
comedy of manners . . . comic and poignant . . . Readers will take in décor of the
one-percent, jealous riffs on famous writers, and caricatured liberals and
conservatives with voyeuristic glee. Booklist
AGAINST AMAZON AND OTHER ESSAYS
Picking up where the widely praised Bookshops: A Readers History left
off, Carrion explores the increasing pressures of Amazon and other new
technologies on the vital social, cultural, and intellectual spaces of bookshops
and libraries. He travels from London to Geneva, from Miamis Little Havana to
Argentina, from his own well-loved childhood library to the rosewood shelves of
Jules Vernes Nautilus and the innovative spaces that characterize South Koreas
bookshop renaissance. Including interviews with writers and librarians, Against
Amazon is equal parts a celebration of books and bookshops, an autobiography
of a reader, a travelogue, a love letterand, most urgently, a manifesto against
the corrosive influence of late capitalism.
EX LIBRIS : 100+ BOOKS TO READ AND REREAD

shares her personal selections of more than 140 works of fiction, nonfiction, and
poetry that have had a profound effect on her life, gorgeously illustrated

These magical brick-sized objects are actually tiny time machines that can
transport us back to the past to learn the lessons of history, and forward to the
future, where we may be granted glimpses of more ideal worlds, or more
dystopian ones that serve as dark mirrors of what we could become, should we
misuse the gifts of science, or fail to protect our ideals and our planet."
HOW SHOULD ONE READ A BOOK?
"Where are we to begin? How are we to bring order into this multitudinous
chaos and so get the deepest and widest pleasure from what we read?"
Published for the first time as a standalone volume (with a new introduction by
Sheila Heti) Virginia Woolf's short, impassioned essay, How Should One Read a
Book? celebrates the enduring importance of great literature. In this timeless
manifesto on the written word, rediscover the joy of reading and the power of a

oneself. Full of vitality and humor, it will ring true for anyone who has
taken the time to discover who they truly are. Crewes' commitment

appearance to promote one of his books on The Daily Show, he was invited to
return as a contributor. This led to an unexpected and, frankly, implausible career
in front of the camera that has lasted to this very day, or at least until 2016.
Conversational, funnythe focus is on the bizarre state of being liminally famous
in a culture that so desperately celebrates fame. Hodgman has dozens of funny
stories to tell, ranging from recollections of early jobs to the time Benedict
Cumberbatch messed with his mind.”—The AV Club
SHIT, ACTUALLY
New York Times opinion writer and bestselling author Lindy West was once the in-
house movie critic for Seattle's alternative newsweekly The Stranger, where she
covered film with brutal honesty and giddy irreverence. In Shit, Actually, Lindy
returns to those roots, re-examining beloved and iconic movies from the past 40
years with an eye toward the big questions of our time: Is Twilight the horniest
movie in history? Why do the zebras in The Lion King trust Mufasa-WHO IS A LION-
to look out for their best interests? Why did anyone bother making any more
movies after The Fugitive achieved perfection? And, my god, why don't any of the
women in Love, Actually ever f***ing talk?!?!

explore the oceanic depths of longing and the reverberations of obsession. Among
Jamison's subjects are 52 Blue, deemed "the loneliest whale in the world"; the eerie
past-life memories of children; the devoted citizens of an online world called Second
Life; the haunted landscape of the Sri Lankan Civil War; and an entire museum

marriage and maternity -- in essays about eloping in Las Vegas, becoming a
stepmother, and giving birth.
BUSTED IN NEW YORK AND OTHER ESSAYS
In these twenty-five essays, Darryl Pinckney has given us a view of our recent racial
history that blends the social and the personal and wonders how we arrived at our
current moment. Pinckney reminds us that white supremacy isnt back; it never
went away. It is this impulse to see historically that is at the core of Busted in New
York and Other Essays, which traces the lineage of black intellectual history from
Booker T. Washington through the Harlem Renaissance, to the Black Panther Party
and the turbulent sixties, to todays Afro-pessimists, and celebrated and neglected
thinkers in between.
THE ONCE AND FUTURE WITCHES
In 1893, there's no such thing as witches. There used to be, in the wild,
dark days before the burnings began, but now witching is nothing but
tidy charms and nursery rhymes. If the modern woman wants any
measure of power, she must find it at the ballot box.
But when the Eastwood sisters -- James Juniper, Agnes Amaranth, and
Beatrice Belladonna -- join the suffragists of New Salem, they begin to
pursue the forgotten words and ways that might turn the women's
movement into the witch's movement.
There's no such thing as witches. But there will be.

society. The infamous "Harpers Letter, signed by public intellectuals of both the
left and right, sought to settle the matter and only caused greater division.

and take down powerful abusers, often with the help of social media, call outs are
seen by some as having gone too far. But what is too far when youre talking
about imbalances of power and patterns of harm? And what happens when

time with Oliver Sacks in the early 1980s. Almost a decade earlier, Dr.
Sacks had published his masterpiece Awakenings. But the book had

Weschler to abandon the profile, a request to which Weschler
acceded. The two remained close friends, however, across the next
thirty years and then, just as Sacks was dying, he urged Weschler to
take up the project once again. This book is the result of that
entreaty.

her hair. In the street, strangers reach for her fluffy curls; and
even under the sea, in the jungle, and in space, she's chased
by a mermaid, monkeys, and poked by aliens...until, finally,
Aria has had enough! Author-illustrator Sharee Miller takes
the tradition of appreciation of black hair to a new, fresh,
level as she doesn't seek to convince or remind young
readers that their curls are beautiful -- she simply
acknowledges black beauty while telling a fun, imaginative
story. "Miller's lighthearted touch effectively delivers a
serious, necessary message about respecting boundaries."
