    Adam Mansbach famously gave voice to two of parenting's primal struggles in Go the F--k to Sleep and You Have to F--king Eat — the often-imitated, never-duplicated pair of New York Times best sellers that ushered in a new era of radical honesty in humor books for parents. But what could possibly be left?Parents — new, old, expectant, and grand — of multiple children already knew the answer. Author Adam Mansbach discovered it for himself by having two more kids, less than two years apart. F--k, Now There Are Two of You is a loving monologue about that new addition to the family, addressed to a big sibling and shot through with Adam's trademark profane truth-telling. Chock-full of unspoken sentiments channeled directly from the brains of parents worldwide, F--k, Now There Are Two of You articulates all the fears and frustrations attendant to the simple, math-defying fact that two is a million more kids than one. As you probably know by now, you shouldn't let a child listen to it.

    A tale of a woman’s romantic entanglements with two anthropologists—and the odd mating habits of humans—from the author of Jane and Prudence. Catherine Oliphant writes for women’s magazines and lives comfortably with anthropologist Tom Mallow—although she’s starting to wonder if they’ll ever get married. Then Tom drops his bombshell: He’s leaving her for a nineteen-year-old student.   Though stunned by Tom’s betrayal, Catherine quickly becomes fascinated by another anthropologist, Alaric Lydgate, a reclusive eccentric recently returned from Africa. As Catherine starts to weigh her options, she must figure out who she is and what she really wants.   With a lively cast of characters and a witty look at the insular world of academia, this novel from the much-loved author of Excellent Women and other modern classics is filled with poignant, playful observations about the traits that separate us from our anthropological forebears—far fewer than we may imagine.

    Bilbury Grange is the second in Vernon Coleman's series of Young Country Doctor books. The place is the English county of Devon. The time is the 1970s. A young doctor, just married and in a new home (a vast and rambling country house in desperate need of repairs and renovation), has taken over a small village practice when suddenly the authorities decide that the village isn't big enough to have its own doctor. The villagers decide otherwise. Bilbury is the village everyone dreams of living in. It's the village where people speak to strangers and where doors are left unlocked. 
    Bilbury Grange is the story of village life in the 1970s, and it centers on the young doctor and his lovely wife. But it's also about the people who live there, and it is a story of great happiness and joy, some tragedy, and many dramas.
