    An astonishing account of Cuban exiles, CIA informants, and cocaine traffickers in Florida by the New York Times–bestselling author of South and West. In Miami, the National Book Award–winning author of The Year of Magical Thinking looks beyond postcard images of fluorescent waters, backlit islands, and pastel architecture to explore the murkier waters of a city on the edge.   From Fidel Castro and the Bay of Pigs invasion to Lee Harvey Oswald and the Kennedy assassination to Oliver North and the Iran–Contra affair, Joan Didion uncovers political intrigues and shadowy underworld connections, and documents the US government’s “seduction and betrayal” of the Cuban exile community in Dade County. She writes of hotels that offer “guerrilla discounts,” gun shops that advertise Father’s Day deals, and a real-estate market where “Unusual Security and Ready Access to the Ocean” are perks for wealthy homeowners looking to make a quick escape. With a booming drug trade, staggering racial and class inequities, and skyrocketing murder rates, Miami in the 1980s felt more like a Third World capital than a modern American city. Didion describes the violence, passion, and paranoia of these troubled times in arresting detail and “beautifully evocative prose” (The New York Times Book Review).   A vital report on an immigrant community traumatized by broken dreams and the cynicism of US foreign policy, Miami is a masterwork of literary journalism whose insights are timelier and more important than ever.

    —A lightly told literary tour-de-force based upon the bizarre and singular life story of an early 20th century artist—Rembrandt Bugatti—who is gaining increasing renown. Bugatti's brother is the founder of the celebrated auto manufacturer.—Bugatti's sculptures sell for millions at auction and are on view in the world's leading museums. One of his most original works was the silver elephant mascot atop the radiator of the legendary Bugatti Royale luxury car.—Bugatti is known for his sculptures of animals; one of the influences on his work was the decision during World War II made by Belgian authorities to kill all animals in the Antwerp Zoo, to prevent their haphazard slaughter by the German air force.—This novel is an attractive title for history buffs and art lovers, along with being simply a fantastic work of literary fiction from one of Italy's finest writers.

    Robert Sullivan, who has driven cross-country more than two dozen times, recounts one of his family's many journeys from Oregon to New York. His story of moving his family back and forth from the East Coast to the West Coast (along with various other migrations), is replete with all the minor disasters, humor, and wonderful coincidences that characterize life on the road, not to mention life.  
      
    As he drives, Sullivan ponders his Lewis and Clark and other fellow nation-crossers, meets Beat poets who are devotees of cross-country icon Jack Kerouac, and plays golf on an abandoned coal mine. And, in his trademark celebration of the mundane, Sullivan investigates everything from the history of the gas pump to the origins of fast food and rest stops. Cross Country tells the tales that come from fifteen years of driving across the country (and all around it) with two kids and everything that two kids and two parents take when driving in a car from one coast to another, over and over, driving to see the way the road made America and America made the road.  
      
      
    Praise for Cross Country:  
    "Sullivan writes with precision, humor and empathy, and his own voice carrying us along."-Oregonian  
     "[A] sprawling, zigzagging, history-drenched memoir."-Boston Globe  
     "[An] entertaining, eclectic and eccentric memoir."-Cleveland Plain Dealer  
    "[Sullivan] channels Walt Whitman's sense of wonder."-Washington Times  
     "[Sullivan] could be the uncrowned king of road tripping."-Seattle Post Intelligencer  
    "Sullivan is sensitive, witty and well-read, which is why it's so much fun to have him along for the ride."-USA Today  
    "Sullivan is fascinating...he's in a league with Bill Bryson, a writer who deftly mixes humor and knowledge."-Fort Worth Star Telegram  
    "Cross Country is, by turns, grand, timely, intriguing...fascinating." -LA Times Book Review
