    The “refreshing . . . laugh-out-loud” #1 New York Times bestseller about life in the suburbs that was adapted into a classic film comedy (Kirkus Reviews).   One day, Tony Award–winning playwright Jean Kerr packed up her four kids (and husband, Walter, one of Broadway’s sharpest critics), and left New York City. They moved to a faraway part of the world that promised a grassy utopia where daisies grew wild and homes were described as neo-gingerbread. In this collection of “wryly observant” essays, Kerr chronicles her new life in this strange land called Larchmont (TheWashington Post).   It sounds like bliss—no more cramped apartments and nightmarish after-theater cocktail parties where the martinis were never dry enough. Now she has her very own washer/dryer, a garden, choice seats at the hottest new third-grade school plays (low overhead but they’ll never recoup their losses), and a fresh new kind of lunacy.   In Please Don’t Eat the Daisies “Jean Kerr cooks with laughing gas” as she explores the everyday absurdities, anxieties, and joys of marriage, family, friends, home decorating, and maintaining a career—but this time with a garage! (Time).

    Carol Bundy was looking for love. She’d been through three husbands, two boyfriends — and then she found Doug Clark. He was perfect. He was handsome, spoke French, and Doug was a sexual athlete.  
    He was everything Carol wanted. 
    In June 1980, Carol and Doug started killing prostitutes on Sunset Strip. 
    Sexual Killing: A Shocking True Crime Story follows the stone-cold serial killing of Carol Bundy and Doug Clark during the summer of 1980. 
    Carol was willing to do anything for Doug. She seduced an eleven-year-old neighbor into their bed, painted the decapitated head of one of their victims so Doug could have sex with it, and helped him dispose of headless bodies. 
    Oh, Doug loved it! Did he love Carol? Did it matter?  Carol was doing whatever Doug told her to do.  
    She was a nurse. Carol was all about saving lives, not taking lives. 
    Carol knew she was doing wrong. She was doing murder. Carol called the cops. They didn’t believe her. So, she went to her ex-boyfriends for help. One of them survived. One of them didn’t. 
    Carol just wanted love. How far would she go to keep the man of her dreams? What if she got as hooked on sex and killing as he was? Would Carol ever be able to stop?
