    New York Times bestselling author, comedian, and Chelsea Lately writer Heather McDonald’s hilarious true story of finding herself in the predicament of being an unwilling virgin at the age of twenty-seven.Can’t a girl dress like a hooker, dance like a stripper, and kiss like a porn star and still be a nineteen-year-old virgin?You’ll Never Blue Ball in This Town Again is the laugh-out-loud story of an attractive Los Angeles woman who found herself in the predicament of being an unwilling virgin. As an actress, writer, and stand-up comedienne, Heather McDonald passed up ample opportunities to have her V-card revoked by handsome, rich, and sometimes even fabulously famous men, but she could not bring herself to do “it” until well after her friends had been deflowered.As Chelsea Handler so lovingly puts it, “Thank God Heather waited twenty-seven years to lose her virginity or she wouldn’t have any material for this book.” Whether in a backseat, a community pool, or a sports stadium, with a frat boy, a doctor, or an A-list celebrity, Heather McDonald knew how to turn those boys blue. Unlike “putting out,” blue balling might not have paid her rent or landed her free trips to Hawaii, but it did provide her with hilarious stories and adventures in her search for true love—and, ultimately, her very own happy ending. Now, Heather McDonald will never blue ball in this town again.

    Part memoir, part extended essay, Visions and Revisions is a revolutionary look at the 1990s AIDS epidemic from ""one of our most adventurous and singularly talented writers working today"" (San Francisco Chronicle). Reminiscent of Joan Didion's White Album or Kurt Vonnegut's Palm Sunday, Visions and Revisions is a collage-style portrait of a tumultuous era that puts the listener on the streets of NYC during the early '90s AIDS crisis, also touching on such diverse subjects as the serial murders of gay men, Peck's first loves upon coming out, and the transformation of LGBT people from marginal, idealistic fighters to their present place in a world of widespread, if fraught, mainstream acceptance. Visions and Revisions capitalizes on a wave of increased interest in the HIV/AIDS epidemic, with the recent premiere of the groundbreaking AIDS documentary How to Survive a Plague. This is the first memoir by one of our most controversial contemporary writers, and it offers a jarring, street-level portrait of AIDS activism in the 1990s. Visions and Revisions will follow the Soho Press reissue of Dale Peck's debut novel, Martin and John, which received stunning critical praise, as well as our release of a new anthology he is editing. Novelist and critic Dale Peck's latest work - part memoir, part extended essay - is a foray into what the author calls ""the second half of the first half AIDS epidemic,"" i.e., the period between 1987, when the AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP) was founded, and 1996, when the advent of combination therapy transformed AIDS from a virtual death sentence into a chronic, manageable illness. Visions and Revisions has been assembled from more than a dozen essays and articles that have been extensively rewritten and recombined to form a sweeping, collage-style portrait of a tumultuous era.

    What happens when life throws together a busy, enthusiastic, doctor-daughter and her bereaved, disenchanted, dependent father? What happens when science meets stubbornness and a parent needs parenting? 
    Following her mother’s death, Dr Helena Popovic puts her medical training and beliefs to the test when she becomes the carer for her elderly father, who has encroaching dementia. 
    A passionate medical practitioner and international speaker, Helena finds herself living out everything she preached. 
    This moving story is part personal diary, part scientific treatise and part practical guide, woven together with humorous anecdotes. Above all, it’s an inspiring account of a daughter in search of her father: the man beyond the grief, despair, depression and dementia. 
    This timeless book deals with a complex issue many of us will need to face: how best to care for elderly parents or loved ones who can no longer care for themselves. What do those in our care most need from us? 
    Are there steps we can take to defy dementia and build a better brain? Are we able to sharpen our intellect, tap into brain potential we never knew we had, and prevent the cognitive decline most of us believe is inevitable with ageing? 
    The answer is an unequivocal YES! 
    Facts inform but stories transform. The facts in this book will change your thinking – the story in this book will change your life. 
    ‘Who would have thought that dementia could be such an adventure—that adventure, in fact, prevents dementia!’ Dr Sarah Woodbury FRANZCOG

    A fictionalized story of a true-life genius that “reads . . . like one of John le Carr[é]’s espionage novels” (New York Journal of Books).   This account of the inner life of Nikola Tesla—arguably the most influential inventor in history—is a work of speculative fiction that reveals a genius whose greatest desire was to share his inventions with the world. It offers a compelling portrait of his passionate side, especially his secret love for his muse Karina, a woman no one else can see who brings him life-altering inspirations.   Tesla’s love and obsession with Karina are the forces driving his work and motivating him in the face of a doubting world. Tesla maintains a loner’s life while working alongside some of the greatest financial and scientific powerhouses of the age, and faces constant temptation to stray from Karina and his life’s work. This portrait of a larger-than-life genius brings to light his very human side.   “Flacco does an admirable job of showing us a man who was sometimes the brilliant, prescient Master—the man with an eidetic memory—and sometimes the helpless dupe of lesser, venial men. . . . A beautifully crafted handling of a difficult—and not always sympathetic—subject.” —Historical Novel Society
