    From the author of Make Your Home Among Strangers, essays on being an "accidental" American. An incisive look at the edges of identity for a woman of color in a society centered on whiteness In this sharp and candid collection of essays, critically acclaimed writer and first-generation American Jennine Capo Crucet explores the condition of finding herself a stranger in the country where she was born. Raised in Miami and the daughter of Cuban refugees, Crucet examines the political and personal contours of American identity and the physical places where those contours find themselves smashed: be it a rodeo town in Nebraska, a university campus in upstate New York, or Disney World in Florida. Crucet illuminates how she came to see her exclusion from aspects of the theoretical American Dream, despite her family's attempts to fit in with white American culture, beginning with their ill-fated plan to name her after the winner of the Miss America pageant. In prose that is both fearless and slyly humorous, My Time Among the Whites examines the sometimes hopeful, sometimes deeply flawed ways in which many Americans have learned to adapt, exist, and, in the face of all signals saying otherwise, perhaps even thrive in a country that never imagined them here.

    “A fine biography of Leclerc, who played almost as important a part as de Gaulle himself in restoring French pride in the Second World War” (Antony Beevor, international bestselling author of D-Day).   From the fall of France until 1943, Philippe Leclerc dovetailed his operations with the British effort in North Africa, establishing himself as a dynamic combat leader in the battles against Rommel. But once the conflict shifted to European soil, he became even more prominent as the commander of the 2nd French Armored Division—the famous 2e DB). For the next two years, he was under the operational control of either Patton’s Third Army, as in the Normandy breakout, Hodges’ First Army, at the Westwall, or Patch’s Seventh Army in the south.   His career not only includes the liberation of Paris, for which he is most famous, but the retaking of Strasbourg and the reduction of the Colmar Pocket. Helping to spearhead the advance into Germany itself, Leclerc’s armor comprised a rock upon which American units could rely, and its waving the tricolor during the Allied counter-invasion went far toward retrieving French prestige in the war. Leclerc is one of very few Frenchmen of whom it can be said that he never stopped fighting to regain France’s freedom, from the debacle of 1940 right through to the end.   The “first full-scale biography in English of the ‘liberator of Paris,’” Free France’s Lion will make fascinating reading for any serious student of the full scope of World War II (Publishers Weekly).

    "Hilarious & Heartbreaking" ✮✮✮✮✮Will there be light at the end of the birth canal?  
    Does the word ‘endometriosis’ make you want to stick a fork in your eye? No?  
    Then perhaps this book isn’t for you. It’s funny, and (sometimes alarmingly) frank. It contains an impressive array of synonyms for ‘vagina’ and it’s certainly NSFW. 
    It’s about having a devil womb and a hot knife lodged in a shoulder. It’s about becoming blackly bitter and twisted in infertility, and then slowly finding a way to untwist. 
    It’s part memoir, part dark comedy, wrapped up loosely as a journal full of TMI and quirk. 
    Let me put it this way: If Helen Fielding and Marian Keyes were to go through IVF, and use Caitlin Moran as a surrogate, this book would be their baby. 
    'The Underachieving Ovary' is an honest and satisfying must-read for anyone battling endometriosis or infertility. Start reading it today.

    My Secret Life, the anonymously written erotic memoirs of a Victorian English gentleman who refers to himself simply as 'Walter' is one of the most idiosyncratic and prurient books ever written. In this vast autobiographical confessional the author recounts, in meticulous detail, his sexual exploits throughout the course of a life devoted entirely to the pursuit of carnal knowledge. Through this compelling exploration of the author's sexual and moral behaviour we are left with a uniquely entertaining insight into life behind the closed doors of Victorian society. My Secret Life is funny, sorrowful, suspenseful, compulsively readable, obscene, titillating, exciting and erotic...we are privy to the thoughts, emotions and memories of one of the most unusual, unsung and colourful characters of the Victorian era.
    
    Now, for the first time, the complete unabridged version of this unique and important text is being narrated and scored by film composer Dominic Crawford Collins as an 'audiofilm' (an audiobook in which the emotional landscape is explored through the music score). Each chapter of My Secret Life will be released at monthly intervals over the next ten to fifteen years culminating in a lifetime's work for the composer and what is likely to become the longest audio book ever to be produced.

    A fascinating, true-life memoir of an undercover agent in the wild, wild west of the late 1800s!After years of cowboying, Charles A. Siringo settled down in Caldwell, Kansas to run a store—             until an acquaintance told him that he was "cut out" for detective work. Thereupon, Siringo joined the Pinkerton National Detective Agency, where he worked for more than twenty years. A Cowboy Detective chronicles Siringo'             s adventures as an undercover operative in the wilder parts of the West, where he rode with the lawless and escaped violent death more than a few times. Using more guises than Sherlock Holmes, he survived labor riots in Idaho, hounded moonshiners in the Appalachians, and infiltrated Butch Cassidy's Wild Bunch as an outlaw on the run for murder!
