Writers on Writing

  • "Recommended to fans of Paula McLean's 'The Paris Wife' and anyone who enjoyed Hemingway's 'A Moveable Feast.'" -- Booklist
  • "Nafisi...has a talent for combining the academic and the everyday, the theoretical and the personal, and thanks to her deliberate and confident voice, the lessons [in this book] will stick with us, too." -- The New York Times Book Review
  • "[Hamid] reminds us yet again that fiction sometimes provides the most direct path to truth." -- BookPage (starred review)
  • "A sure bet for readers of personal war stories and those who want to know, 'What about the women and children?'" -- Booklist
  • "[Leibovich is] just so good at this. He is a world-class ranter, continuing an American tradition that includes such dyspeptic luminaries as H.L. Mencken, Hunter S. Thompson, and P.J. O'Rourke.... [He's also] a brilliant interviewer able to wheedle not-quite-admissions from his subjects, who give him all the access in the world." -- The Washington Post
  • Cross will appear at a Meet The Author event at Magic City Books on Sunday the 3rd, beginning at 2pm.
  • "Stunning...deeply imagined...a novel about how people find hope in the midst of chaos and fear, and how books themselves might be the best things humans have ever done." -- The San Francisco Chronicle
  • "Wade Rouse's masterful memoir about coming out and coming to grips with his cantankerous, conservative father over a shared love of baseball is a pitch-perfect blend of storytelling, emotional discovery, and survival humor." -- Meredith May, author of "The Honey Bus"
  • "Gayle's rich and important book reminds us that American history is more surprising, terrible, and, yes, inspiring than we often care to know. The history he weaves is deeply relevant to today's movements for racial justice and Indigenous rights." -- Heather McGhee, author of "The Sum of Us"
  • Now appearing in paperback, this bestselling collection of personal essays won a National Book Critics Circle Award; it was also named a "Best Book of the Year" by NPR, The Washington Post, Kirkus Reviews, The Millions, and Ms Magazine.
