    Young newlywed Beata Karp, after being incarcerated in a prison camp in Siberia during WWII, takes a perilous journey through Siberia in the hope of reuniting with her family and freeing them from their work camp.
    
     
    On a Russian-occupied Bialystok street in early 1940, educated, down-to-earth, Lithuanian aristocrat Beata is arrested with her Polish husband Kaz. They’re taken on a three-day long journey with little food and water only to find themselves imprisoned in infamous Baranovichi where a brutal Russian interrogator knows Beata speaks five languages, which can only mean one thing: she must be a spy. Beata is sentenced to ten years in a Siberian Gulag near the Arctic Circle. She and thousands of people spend six weeks standing in open cattle wagons crossing the world’s biggest snowfield to reach Camp Yaya, a place otherwise known as ‘Where the Devil Says Goodnight’. The date: November 27, 1940.

    When his teacher sets the class a History project, Sam cannot choose which bit of History he prefers, so decides to do ALL OF IT. His version of History is a rumbustious collection of half-remembered facts, assembled roughly in the right order, and glued together with alarmingly confident misunderstanding. And yet our endearing narrator somehow inadvertently hits the nail on the head every time - as when he sagely observes that the Suffragettes' hunger strikes paid off 'in the name of Female Emaciation', or that before Shakespeare came along 'everyone had been a bit rubbish at poetry' (notwithstanding 'Jeffrey Chortler, saviour of the Middle Agers'). Sam takes us from Ancient Egypt right up to Last Week with the flair of a bright-eyed nine-year-old. Rumour has it he is now working on an even more ambitious tome, The Entire World and Everything In It.

    A New York Times Best Seller!When the Nazis invaded Hungary in 1944, they sent virtually the entire Jewish population to Auschwitz. A Jew and a medical doctor, Dr. Miklos Nyiszli was spared from death for a grimmer fate: to perform “scientific research” on his fellow inmates under the supervision of the infamous “Angel of Death”: Dr. Josef Mengele. Nyiszli was named Mengele’s personal research pathologist. Miraculously, he survived to give this terrifying and sobering account.Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Arcade, Good Books, Sports Publishing, and Yucca imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs.

  • What Kind of Parent Am I? - Self-Surveys That Reveal the Impact of Toxic Stress and More - cover

    What Kind of Parent Am I? -...

    Toxic stress can occur in any home, rich or poor, regardless of age, education, or walk of life. 
     
     
    
    Research has shown that adaptive, supportive parents are the best
    at insulating their children from all but the biggest catastrophes.
    Exposure to “toxic stress” in childhood can cause depression,
    alcoholism, obesity, violent behaviour, heart disease, and even
    cancer in adulthood. Parents who are less sensitive or attentive
    or who regularly misinterpret their children’s needs can let too
    much stress trickle through, or even cause it in the first place,
    which can carry on to the next generation. 
     
    
    
    What Kind of Parent Am I? uses specially created surveys
    to identify problem areas for parents. With recommended
    resources and advice throughout, Dr. Letourneau informs and
    empowers parents to deal directly with their unique risks and
    challenges, helping them become the best parents they can be.

    In this collection of her finest and best-known short essays, Natalia Ginzburg explores both the mundane details and inescapable catastrophes of personal life with the grace and wit that have assured her rightful place in the pantheon of classic mid-century authors. Whether she writes of the loss of a friend, Cesare Pavese; or what is inexpugnable of World War II; or the Abruzzi, where she and her first husband lived in forced residence under Fascist rule; or the importance of silence in our society; or her vocation as a writer; or even a pair of worn-out shoes, Ginzburg brings to her reflections the wisdom of a survivor and the spare, wry, and poetically resonant style her readers have come to recognize. 
    "A glowing light of modern Italian literature . . . Ginzburg's magic is the utter simplicity of her prose, suddenly illuminated by one word that makes a lightning streak of a plain phrase. . . . As direct and clean as if it were carved in stone, it yet speaks thoughts of the heart.' — The New York Times Book Review
