Her parents, however, have different plans for her life and shelter her at every turn. In time, she learns first-hand, indelible lessons about how trusted people can turn cold and calculating. Though she always appears to be in the midst of a storm, Anolese's triumphant transformation from girlhood to womanhood, leaves her standing tall with strength, faith in God and enduring perseverance. "The author's debut novel, "A Mother's Influence" is a must read! It is a fictional story representing life's ups and downs. A real page turner! The author vividly brings the multi-dimensional characters to life. I couldn't put it down until I finished it. The main character is Anolese. She symbolizes anyone with a fortitude for life. A woman of faith with tenacity who refuses to "throw in the towel!". One who continues to rise after every fall. A true definition of success. Anolese is a phenomenal woman! Great book for book club discussions. Michele E. Horne, MD, MPH CEO and Owner, Central Coast Total Wellness

Arguments for Liberty
Edited by Aaron Ross Powell and Grant Babcock Two schools of thought have long dominated libertarian discussions about ethics: utilitarianism and natural rights. Those two theories are important, but they're not the only ways people think about ethics and political philosophy. In Arguments for Liberty, you'll find a broader approach to libertarianism. In each of Arguments for Liberty's nine chapters a different political philosopher discusses how his or her preferred school of thought judges political institutions and why libertarianism best meets that standard. Though they end up in the same place, the paths they take diverge in fascinating ways. Readers will find in these pages not only an excellent introduction to libertarianism, but also a primer on some of the most important political and ethical theories. Assuming little or no training in academic philosophy, the essays guide readers through a continuous moral conversation spanning centuries and continents, from Aristotle in ancient Athens to twentieth-century philosopher John Rawls in the halls of Harvard. What's the best political system? What standards should we use to decide, and why? Arguments for Liberty is a guide to thinking about these questions. It's also a powerful, nine-fold argument for the goodness and importance of human liberty.

Bad Arguments
By Ali Almossawi Illustrated by Alejandro Giraldo "A flawless compendium of flaws." -Alice Roberts, PhD, anatomist, writer, and presenter of The Incredible Human Journey The antidote to fuzzy thinking, with furry animals! Have you read (or stumbled into) one too many irrational online debates? Ali Almossawi certainly had, so he wrote An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments! This handy guide is here to bring the internet age a much-needed dose of old-school logic (really old-school, a la Aristotle). Here are cogent explanations of the straw man fallacy, the slippery slope argument, the ad hominem attack, and other common attempts at reasoning that actually fall short—plus a beautifully drawn menagerie of animals who (adorably) commit every logical faux pas. Rabbit thinks a strange light in the sky must be a UFO because no one can prove otherwise (the appeal to ignorance). And Lion doesn't believe that gas emissions harm the planet because, if that were true, he wouldn't like the result (the argument from consequences). Once you learn to recognize these abuses of reason, they start to crop up everywhere from congressional debate to YouTube comments—which makes this geek-chic book a must for anyone in the habit of holding opinions.

Citizenship and the American Revolution: A Resolute Tory’s Abiding Status
Transactions of the American Philosophical Society, Volume 106, Part 3 David W. Maxey What was the status of a resident of New Jersey or Pennsylvania on July 5, 1776, or for several months, even years, after the Declaration of Independence? When did a person living in one of the rebellious colonies cease to be the subject of George III and become a citizen of a newly constituted American state? Well into the nineteenth century, uncertainty persisted regarding citizenship acquired (or lost) during the Revolution. Turning to original sources, David Maxey brings into clear focus a family dispute over inheritance rights and the task the United States Supreme Court faced in determining the status of Daniel Coxe—either as a citizen of New Jersey entitled to inherit, or as an alien barred from doing so. Having heard the arguments of opposing counsel on two separate occasions, the Supreme Court announced its decision in 1808. Twenty years later, the Court measurably diverged from the rationale supporting that decision.

A Writer's Life By Lee Smith For the inimitable Lee Smith, place is paramount. For forty-five years, her fiction has lived and breathed with the rhythms and people of the Appalachian South. But never before has she written her own story. Set deep in the mountains of Virginia, the Grundy of Lee Smith's youth was a place of coal miners, tent revivals, mountain music, drive-in theaters, and her daddy's dimestore. It was in that dimestore--listening to customers and inventing adventures for the store's dolls--that she became a storyteller. Even when she was sent off to college to earn some "culture," she understood that perhaps the richest culture she might ever know was the one she was driving away from--and it's a place that she never left behind. Dimestore's fifteen essays are crushingly honest, wise and perceptive, and superbly entertaining. Smith has created both a moving personal portrait and a testament to embracing one's heritage. It's also an inspiring story of the birth of a writer and a poignant look at a way of life that has all but vanished.

Dust Bowl Girls
The Inspiring Story of the Team That Barnstormed Its Way to Basketball Glory By Lydia Reeder "A thrilling, cinematic story. I loved every minute I spent with these bold, daring women whose remarkable journey is the stuff of American legend." -Karen Abbott, New York Times bestselling author of Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy The Boys in the Boat meets A League of Their Own in this true story of a Depression-era championship women's team. In the early 1930s, during the worst drought and financial depression in American history, Sam Babb began to dream. Like so many others, this charismatic Midwestern basketball coach wanted a reason to have hope. Traveling from farm to farm near the tiny Oklahoma college where he coached, Babb recruited talented, hardworking young women and offered them a chance at a better life: a free college education in exchange for playing on his basketball team, the Cardinals. Despite their fears of leaving home and the sacrifices that their families would face, the women joined the team. And as Babb coached the Cardinals, something extraordinary happened. These remarkable athletes found a passion for the game and a heartfelt loyalty to one another and their coach--and they began to win. Combining exhilarating sports writing and exceptional storytelling, Dust Bowl Girls takes readers on the Cardinals' intense, improbable journey all the way to an epic showdown with the prevailing national champions, helmed by the legendary Babe Didrikson. Lydia Reeder captures a moment in history when female athletes faced intense scrutiny from influential figures in politics, education, and medicine who denounced women's sports as unhealthy and unladylike. At a time when a struggling nation was hungry for inspiration, this unlikely group of trailblazers achieved much more than a championship season.

Earthworks: Selected Poems
Transactions 106, Part 1 Rosanna Warren In this inspiring volume, Rosanna Warren chronologically arranges poems selected from her four published collections of poetry. She places the poetry "under the protection of two saints: William Blake and Hart Crane," and convincingly reminds us that "poems have work to do: to bear witness, to cry out, to lament, to praise. They should be psalms for their time."

What Everyone Should Know About Economics and the Environment By Richard L. Stroup It's one thing to be passionate about protecting the environment. It's another to be successful at it. This history of environmentalism includes a constant shift from one concern to another, and many laws have been enacted to clean up pollution or preserve natural beauty. However, many of these laws are ineffective and others have had unintended consequences. In this updated edition, Richard Stroup explains how economics applies to environmental decision making, why many of our environmental laws have failed us, and how we might go about doing a better job of protecting nature. Eco-nomics is an indispensable guide to learning how to think about both economics and the environment.

Edward Shaw of Boston: Antebellum Architect and Author—An Introduction
Transactions of the American Philosophical Society, Volume 106, Part 2 James F. O'Gorman This is the first in-depth study of the career of an important antebellum American architect and author. It is a contribution to the history of architecture and the history of the book. In the quarter century after 1830, Edward Shaw designed dozens of town houses in Boston, including the landmark Adam Wallace Thaxer, Jr. house on Beacon Hill (1836). Shaw also published five influential books on architecture and structural materials, one of them reprinted in several editions to 1900. Research in Boston archives has unearthed building records and drawings for unbuilt Shaw designs. The book also describes the design and contents of Shaw's published works, and traces their distribution across the country, from Maine to Oregon.

Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace. Third Edition
By Elizabeth Shown Mills It's Here! The new Third Edition of Evidence Explained, the nationally acclaimed guidebook on source citation and analysis. Eight years have passed since the first edition of Evidence Explained, the definitive guide to the citation and analysis of historical sources--a guide so thorough that it leaves nothing to chance. Yet advances in genealogy and history research, changes at major repositories and online information providers, and the ever-evolving electronic world have generated new citation and analysis challenges for researchers. While countless websites now suggest ways to identify their offerings, few of those address the analytical needs of a researcher concerned with the nature and provenance of web material, whose numerous incarnations and transformations often affect the reliability of their content. Like the previous editions of Evidence Explained, the third edition explains citation principles for both traditional and nontraditional sources; includes more than 1,000 citation models for virtually every source type; and shows readers where to go to find their sources and how to describe and evaluate them. It contains many new citation models, updates to websites, and descriptions and evaluations of numerous contemporary materials not included in earlier editions.

History for Genealogists, Using Chronological Time Lines to Find and Understand Your Ancestors
Revised Edition, with 2016 Addendum Incorporating Editorial Corrections to the 2009 Edition, by Denise Larson By Judy Jacobson History for Genealogists is a rarity: It's one of the very few history books in print that is written for genealogists. Here's what we mean: Let's say you have lost track of your 1880 ancestor in Iowa. Have you considered that he might have moved there during the Economic Panic of 1873? Or maybe your forebears were living in Texas in the 1840s. Did you know that they might have come from Kentucky as part of the "Peters Colony"? Are you aware that you can learn a great deal about your ancestors if they belonged to a labor or fraternal organization like the Amalgamated Clothing Workers, Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, or the Catholic Family Life Insurance Society? In other words, knowing a little history can go a long way in helping you find elusive ancestors. As author Judy Jacobson puts it, "Genealogy lays the foundation to understand a person or family using tangible evidence. Yet history also lays the foundation to understand why individuals and societies behave the way they do. It provides the building materials needed to understand the human condition and provide an identity, be it for an individual or a group or an institution." History for Genealogists answers fundamental questions about our forebears. For example, if you are trying to learn when your ancestors left one place for another, it would be helpful to ask the question, "Why did they leave?" Did it have to do with a military conflict, social injustice, religion, disease, economic hardship, a natural disaster? No matter what the explanation, Mrs. Jacobson has a historical time line that could lead to the explanation. For example, your ancestor's departure may have coincided with the outbreak of the Crimean War, a virulent epidemic, an earthquake, or a religious war. Other chapters pose answers to other crucial questions, such as "How did they go?" and "What route did they take?" For these conundrums Mrs. Jacobson uses time lines to lay out the history of the transportation revolutions in America (roads, rails, canals, and air travel), as well as the history of the great western trails our ancestors followed in crossing the country. Mrs. Jacobson dissects the past into scores of time lines. There is a time line of the Industrial Revolution, American immigration, and the Labor Movement. Researchers can also make use of a time line for the history of each of the 50 states, and, in brief, for the rest of North America, Europe, and more. The 2016 edition of History for Genealogists has been completely revised and edited, and it contains two entirely new chapters. Readers of the original 2009 edition will enjoy the new time lines concerning (1) life on the homefront during America's 20th-century wars; and (2) fashion and leisure in America from its beginnings through the middle of the 20th century. The fashion and leisure chapter discusses things like the invention of the jigsaw puzzle, publication of Good Housekeeping magazine, and the modeling of the first bikini. Do you know when the "Spanish Flu" reached America during World War I (killing many of our ancestors), or when the government instituted the first aluminum scrap drive, or commenced rationing during World War II? You can get all the answers in the new "Homefront" chapter. Both new chapters include up-to-date bibliographies that readers can use to expand their research. Now more than ever, History for Genealogists is the one history book all family historians should own when they are searching for fresh clues or hoping to understand what made their ancestors tick.

BY PAM DANZIGER In her new book Home for HENRYs, marketing expert Pam Danziger reveals where home furnishings marketers can find their best and brightest new customer prospects-Young HENRYs (High-Earners-Not-Rich-Yet consumers)-and how to connect with them. HENRYs are a rapidly growing demographic segment. Each year since 2010 over a million households have been added to the HENRYs' ranks. During this time, the number of HENRY households has increased by 23.1 percent, five times faster than the national average, which increased only 3.9 percent in the same five year time period. To target the young HENRYs and their home decorating and furniture needs, the essential question all marketers must ask is what do HENRYs want for their homes? In Home for HENRYs, Danziger reveals three key trends shaping the future of the home furnishings market based upon shifting values in the mindset of the HENRYs, particularly the young HENRYs on the road to affluence. Today people are seriously evaluating their lifestyles, what they need, what they own and most importantly, what they really need to own. It's a mindset focused on doing more with less and many young HENRYs are adopting the "tiny house" mindset, even if they haven't yet moved into tiny houses. It's a focus on quality of life, not quantity of possessions. It means they are making strategic compromises based on value. Danziger explains, "The shifts in consumer psychology call on brands to tell new stories. Young HENRYs reject their parents' and grandparents' ideas of luxury in favor of concepts that are more practical, functional, inclusive, democratic, responsible, and, ultimately, more affordable." In Home for HENRYs, marketers will discover the most powerful new luxury stories that connect with young home-hungry HENRYs. Danziger is an internationally known writer and researcher specializing in the luxury consumer market. With this new book focused on home furnishings, Danziger begins a series of compact books focused on specific market segments.

A Reader Edited by George H. Smith and Marilyn Moore Individualism is one of the most criticized and least understood ideas in social and political thought. Is Individualism the ability to act independently amidst a web of social forces? A vital element of personal liberty and a shield against conformity? Does it lead to or away from unifying individuals with communities? Individualism: A Reader provides a wealth of illuminating essays from the 17th to the early 20th centuries. In 26 selections from 25 writers, individualism is explained and defended, often from unusual perspectives. This anthology includes not only selections from well-known writers, but also many lesser-known pieces-reprinted here for the first time-by philosophers, social theorists, and economists who have been overlooked in standard accounts of individualism. Both richly historical and sharply contemporary, Individualism: A Reader provides a multitude of perspectives and insights on personal liberty and the history of freedom.

The time period of the fourteen examined photo portraits is ca. 1847 to 1858, corresponding to the rapid development of photography from single-Image daguerreotypes to replicated prints from negatives. Since publishing the John Brown Photo Chronology exhibition and catalog in 2009, a previously unknown portrait copy daguerreotype has emerged. John Brown the abolitionist was always in a hurry. He and his supporters seized on the photo technology as eagerly as they adopted new weapons and utilized the growing transportation linking Eastern New England and Central New York with the Western Reserve, Chicago, and Detroit. The Underground Railroad for freedom-seekers was part of this growth. New materials in the supplement to the John Brown Photo Chronology catalog include Mary Brown's life journeys which began in Meadville, Pennsylvania, where her family from central New York emigrated when she was a child. Marrying the widowed John Brown in 1833 she was scarcely more than a child herself: at age seventeen she was the wife of a prosperous and well-respected tannery owner in New Richmond, Pennsylvania, and the stepmother of the five children borne by Dianthe Lusk Brown. "Curator Libby's research journey in 2014 brought new biographical materials to Mary's life." 'MY MAIN IDEA ABOUT JOHN BROWN WAS THAT HE WAS A MAN WHO FOUGHT FOR THE FREEDOM OF BLACK PEOPLE AND THAT HE WAS AN ABOLITIONIST. SEEING THE PICTURES OF JOHN BROWN GIVES ME A BROADER VISION OF WHAT JOHN BROWN MIGHT BE LIKE' Nia Nicholson, student, Oakland California.

Locating Your Roots: Discover Your Ancestors Using Land Records
By Margaret Law Hatcher Land records--grants, deeds, mortgages, surveys, and more--are among the most valuable resources for genealogists to prove relationships and to point to new relationships. One of the strongest motivators for American immigration was land, and one of the strongest motivators for migration within America was land. Because of this, land records are the most common records available for pioneer ancestors. For many, they may be the only records. This invaluable guide will help you understand the various types of land records and give you the information you need to locate these records-and in the process, it may well open up new avenues of research for you.

Most Wanted Particle
The Inside Story of the Hunt for the Higgs, the Heart of the Future of Physics By Jon Butterworth Foreword by Lisa Randall Now in paperback: the "vivid account of what the process of discovery was really like for an insider."-Peter Higgs Particle physics as we know it depends on the Higgs boson: It's the missing link between the birth of our universe-as a sea of tiny, massless particles-and the tangible world we live in today. But for more than 50 years, scientists wondered: Does it exist? Physicist Jon Butterworth was at the frontlines of the hunt for the Higgs at CERN's Large Hadron Collider-perhaps the most ambitious experiment in history. In Most Wanted Particle, he gives us the first inside account of that uncertain time, when an entire field hinged on a single particle, and life at the cutting edge of science meant media scrutiny, late-night pub debates, dispiriting false starts in the face of intense pressure, and countless hours at the collider itself. As Butterworth explains, our first glimpse of the elusive Higgs brings us a giant step closer to understanding the universe-and points the way to an entirely new kind of physics.

My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me
A Black Woman Discovers Her Family's Nazi Past By Jennifer Teege Nikola Sellmair Translated by Carolin Sommer Now in paperback: The New York Times bestselling memoir hailed as "unforgettable" (Publishers Weekly) and "a stunning memoir of cultural trauma and personal identity" (Booklist). At age 38, Jennifer Teege happened to pluck a library book from the shelf-and discovered a horrifying fact: Her grandfather was Amon Goeth, the vicious Nazi commandant depicted in Schindler's List. Reviled as the "butcher of Plaszow," Goeth was executed in 1946. The more Teege learned about him, the more certain she became: If her grandfather had met her-a black woman-he would have killed her. Teege's discovery sends her into a severe depression-and fills her with questions: Why did her birth mother withhold this chilling secret? How could her grandmother have loved a mass murderer? Can evil be inherited? Teege's story is cowritten by Nikola Sellmair, who also adds historical context and insight from Teege's family and friends, in an interwoven narrative. Ultimately, Teege's search for the truth leads her, step by step, to the possibility of her own liberation.

Petroglyphs of Western Colorado and the Northern Ute Indian Reservation as Interpreted by Clifford Duncan
Transactions 105, Part 5 Carol Patterson People must be educated about the rock art. That's how it will be protected. -Clifford Duncan Clifford Duncan, a Northern Ute elder, believed in educating the public to know and understand the meaning of Ute petroglyphs. By doing this, he believed it would help to preserve and protect them. Over the course of eight years, Clifford and the author visited and revisited all of these sites, discussing what they might represent. Clifford's father was an Uncompahgre Ute and wanted Clifford to know the traditional homelands of the Uncompahgres in western Colorado. Clifford made special trips all through the Uncompahgre Plateau (by car, on foot, and on horseback), seeking out any Ute petroglyphs and cultural sites. Later in his life, he and the author visited many of the petroglyphs on the Uintah-Ouray Reservation, along Hill Creek and Willow Creek. These petroglyphs were authored by the Uncompahgre and White River Utes. The interpretations of the petroglyphs of western Colorado and the Uintah-Ouray Reservation are supplemented with cultural and political history to provide a background context to Clifford's interpretations. In addition, ethnographic information from other scholars provides readers with a deep appreciation as to what makes Ute petroglyphs so unique and fascinating.

Specialization and Trade
A Re-introduction to Economics By Arnold Kling Available exclusively as an ebook. Since the end of the second World War, economics professors and classroom textbooks have been telling us that the economy is one big machine that can be effectively regulated by economic experts and tuned by government agencies like the Federal Reserve Board. It turns out they were wrong. Their equations do not hold up. Their policies have not produced the promised results. Their interpretations of economic events -- as reported by the media -- are often of-the-mark, and unconvincing. A key alternative to the one big machine mindset is to recognize how the economy is instead an evolutionary system, with constantly-changing patterns of specialization and trade. This book introduces you to this powerful approach for understanding economic performance. By putting specialization at the center of economic analysis, Arnold Kling provides you with new ways to think about issues like sustainability, financial instability, job creation, and inflation. In short, he removes stiff, narrow perspectives and instead provides a full, multi-dimensional perspective on a continually evolving system. Also available in print and ebook formats at Amazon. The ebook is also available for iPad and Nook.

The Cornerstone of Liberty 2nd Edition
By Timothy Sandefur Ten years after the Supreme Court's infamous eminent domain decision, Kelo v. New London, Timothy and Christina Sandefur's Cornerstone of Liberty surveys the landscape of property rights in the United States, from redevelopment projects that seize people's homes and businesses for the benefit of politically-connected developers, to environmental regulations that forbid people from building homes on land they supposedly own, to asset-forfeiture laws that let the police seize property involved in a crime even if the owner is not accused of any wrongdoing. This second edition has been almost completely rewritten, incorporating details learned only after Kelo was decided, as well as an analysis of the post-Kelo reform efforts, and more recent Supreme Court decisions such as the Sackett and Koontz cases. The Sandefurs combine real-life stories with the philosophical and legal background of private property rights to show why the right to ownership is one of the most essential of human rights. The Sandefurs also provide practical recommendations for better protecting property owners.

The Grandparent Economy
How Baby Boomers Are Bridging the Generation Gap By Lori K. Bitter Older consumers are different. It really is that simple. Consumer behavior is much more difficult to predict as consumers age. This confounds younger brand managers and CMOs who move to brands with older consumer markets. They bring all of their marketing genius from their last job and are gob smacked when those strategies for younger consumers do not work. With over 100 million older consumers searching for products and services that meet the needs of their increasingly complex lives, engaging marketing and advertising campaigns are vital. Consider that: * 43% of grandparents purchase clothing for grandchildren, spending an average of almost $1,000 annually. * With $400 billion in spending on goods and services, people 55+ are outspending younger consumers two to one online. * Tablet penetration has grown from 35% to 41% and grandparents now account for 25% of mobile transactions. Boomer grandparents provide care for older adults and young children, equating to billions of dollars in savings as elders age in place and adult children rely on them for all types of care. Boomer grandparents also fund education, they pay for insurance and they may very well be sacrificing their own retirement to do so. These grandparents are working longer than any previous generation of older adults as they help to fund the lives of at least three generations. This easy-to-read book will shatter many of perceptions that, in the past, have diverted marketers' attention from one of the biggest marketing opportunities ever. Learn what really matters in the lives of today's grandparents from the generation raised on sex, drugs, and rock and roll.

The Statesman and the Storyteller: John Hay, Mark Twain, and the Rise of American Imperialism
By Mark Zwonitzer In a dual biography covering the last ten years of the lives of friends and contemporaries, writer Samuel Clemens (aka Mark Twain) and statesman John Hay (who served as secretary of state under presidents William McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt), The Statesman and the Storyteller not only provides an intimate look into the daily lives of these men but also creates an elucidating portrait of the United States on the verge of emerging as a world power. And just as the narrative details the wisdom, and the occasional missteps, of two great men during a tumultuous time, it also penetrates the seat of power in Washington as the nation strove to make itself known internationally--and in the process committed acts antithetical to America's professed ideals and promises. The country's most significant move in this time was to go to war with Spain and to eventually wrest control of Cuba, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. In what has to be viewed as one of the most shameful periods in American political history, Filipinos who believed they had been promised independence were instead told they were incapable of self-government and then violently subdued in a war that featured torture and execution of native soldiers and civilians. The United States also used its growing military and political might to grab the entirety of the Hawaiian Islands and a large section of Panama. As secretary of state during this time, Hay, though a charitable man, was nonetheless complicit in these misdeeds. Clemens, a staunch critic of his country's imperialistic actions, was forced by his own financial and family needs to temper his remarks. Nearing the end of their long and remarkable lives, both men found themselves struggling to maintain their personal integrity while remaining celebrated and esteemed public figures. Written with a keen eye--Mark Zwonitzer is also an award-winning documentary filmmaker--and informed by the author's deep understanding of the patterns of history, The Statesman and the Storyteller has the compelling pace of a novel, the epic sweep of historical writing at its best, and, in capturing the essence of the lives of Hay and Twain, the humanity and nuance of masterful biography

The Welfare of Nations
By James Bartholomew What damage is being done by failing welfare states? What lessons can be learned from the best welfare states? And—is it too late to stop welfare states from permanently diminishing the lives and liberties of people around the world?

This is a hard-hitting and provocative contribution to understanding how welfare states, as the defining form of government today, are changing the very nature of modern civilization.

A Novel By Kaitlyn Greenidge "A terrifically auspicious debut." -Janet Maslin, The New York Times "Smart, timely and powerful . . . A rich examination of America's treatment of race, and the ways we attempt to discuss and confront it today." -The Huffington Post The Freeman family--Charles, Laurel, and their daughters, teenage Charlotte and nine-year-old Callie--have been invited to the Toneybee Institute to participate in a research experiment. They will live in an apartment on campus with Charlie, a young chimp abandoned by his mother. The Freemans were selected because they know sign language; they are supposed to teach it to Charlie and welcome him as a member of their family. But when Charlotte discovers the truth about the institute's history of questionable studies, the secrets of the past invade the present in devious ways. The power of this shattering novel resides in Greenidge's undeniable storytelling talents. What appears to be a story of mothers and daughters, of sisterhood put to the test, of adolescent love and grown-up misconduct, and of history's long reach, becomes a provocative and compelling exploration of America's failure to find a language to talk about race. "A magnificently textured, vital, visceral feat of storytelling . . . [by] a sharp, poignant, extraordinary new voice of American literature." -Téa Obreht, author of The Tiger's Wife
