Instant New York Times bestseller

A 2018 Barnes & Noble Discover Pick

THE PEOPLE IN THE TREES, by Hanya Yanagihara (Fiction)

Critically-acclaimed, New York Times bestselling debut novel from the author of the literary phenomenon A Little Life

The Man Who Made the Movies, by Vanda Krefft (Nonfiction)

“William Fox has been hiding in plain sight, and Ms. Krefft has done an extraordinary job of putting him in the spotlight through exhaustive research in archives and libraries across America. The book is an immensely valuable resource.... Simultaneously a great American success story and a shudder-provoking cautionary tale.”—Wall Street Journal

“Life, ever unfair, had its way with the fantastic Mr. Fox. Yet Krefft reminds us, in this big, brassy production of a book, of his grand legacy.”—USA Today (four stars)

SOME OTHER TOWN, by Elizabeth Collison (Fiction)

“Wry, peculiar, and compelling…. The novel asks: how do you restart a stalled life? It’s not a new question, but Some Other Town is certainly a funny, fresh, and real answer.” — National Book Award finalist, NBCC winner of the John Leonard First Novel Award, and author of Her Body And Other Parties, Carmen Maria Machado, on NPR.org

ILLUSION OF JUSTICE, by Jerome Buting (NONFICTION)

**Now in development as an ABC Studios television series**

An innocent fashion, by R. J. Hernández (FICTION)

“Writing in a fervently literary style that flirts openly with the traditions of Salinger, Plath, and Fitzgerald, Hernández is a diamond-sharp satirist and a bracingly fresh chronicler of the heartbreak of trying to grow up. Honest and absurd, funny and tragic, wild and lovely, this novel describes modern coming-of age with poetic precision.”Kirkus Reviews (starred), Summer Reading Pick: “Three Summer Reads You Can’t Miss”

“Wry…literary…. His characters are vivid enough to stand alone.”Washington Post

“The experience of reading a Bill Bryson book is something you don’t want to stop—a pip and a spree and, almost incidentally, a serious education. And never tiresome, for Bryson has the gift of being the student and not the tutor.” Washington Post

The Stopped Heart, by Julie Myerson (FICTION

“Bloody brilliant.”—Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Girl on the Train

“Legendary, inimitable Cosmopolitan editor and Sex and the Single Girl author Helen Gurley Brown comes alive in Hauser’s hands.” —Entertainment Weekly, “Must List"
