A New York Times Bestseller 'Profound... Shapiro's account is beautifully written and deeply moving - it brought me to tears more than once.' -- New York Times'All my life I had known there was a secret. What I hadn't known: the secret was me.'In the spring of 2016 Dani Shapiro received the stunning news that her father was not her biological father. Months earlier, on a whim, she had submitted her DNA to a genealogy website for analysis. The results were astonishing, and revealed that everything she had believed about her life had been a lie. Shapiro's parents were no longer alive. With no one to turn to, and only a handful of figures on a webpage, Shapiro set out to discover the truth about herself and her identity.Inheritance is a genetic detective story; a memoir that reads like a thriller. It is a book about family secrets kept out of shame or self-protectiveness; secrets we keep from one another in the name of love. It is a book about the extraordinary moment we live in, where science and technology have outpaced both medical ethics and the capacities of the human heart to contend with the consequences of what we discover.'Reads like a beautiful, lived novel, moving and personal and true.'-- Meg Wolitzer, author of The Female Persuasion 'A fantastic writer.' -- Dolly Alderton 'A meditation on what it means to live in a time when secrecy, anonymity and mystery are vanishing. [Inheritance] encapsulates an ethical quandary with which our society has yet to fully grapple.' -- The New Yorker'Shapiro writes with poetic precision in prose that sometimes sings. And she knows how to tell a story... Fascinating.' -- Sunday Times'Those who like to insist that blood is always thicker than water should read Inheritance, and let their own hearts slowly and gently expand.' -- Rachel Cooke, Observer'An intensely personal story, and a beautifully written enquiry into belonging and self. So warm and deft. I envy those yet to read it.' -- Nigella Lawson'A compulsively-readable investigation into selfhood that burrows to the heart of what it means to accept, to love and to belong.' -- Anthony Doerr, author of All the Light We Cannot See 'A writer of rare talent.' -- Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild

'[The] book tells a collective story about more than just how to prepare food. It tells the story of what it sometimes means to be human: hungry, heartbroken and hopeful.'  — Los Angeles Times ' The Artists' and Writers' Cookbook is far from anything traditional and that’s exactly what makes it so inspiring. There are proper ingredients and measurement listings, yes, but more important are the imaginative, artful narratives conjured up around everyday foods.'  — Vogue ' The Artists' and Writers' Cookbook, Natalie Eve Garrett’s imaginative and beautiful new compilation, is a goldmine . . . It's one of the most exciting, poignant, and eclectic 'cookbooks' I've come across in a long time―maybe ever.'  — MarthaStewart  '[The] recipes . . . are insightful and surprising―with stories that mix art-making, writing, and cooking. Each ingredient in a soup, color used in an illustration, and word modifying a sentence provides a trace of deep-seated emotional experience.'  — The Guardian  'Perhaps because food is so inseparable from our creaturely existence, undergirding these culinary curations are reflections—sometimes rapturous, sometimes poignant, often redemptive, always deeply humane—on life’s most inescapable commonalities: love, grief, growing up, the messy, unhandsome, absolutely beautiful journey of becoming who we are.' — Brainpickings 'This is no mere cookbook . . . [It contains] narratives as delightful to your literary palette as the recipes are to your culinary one.' — Nylon 'What we eat is emblematic of who we are, where we come from, and what matters most to us. This is the basic and delicious premise behind  The Artists' and Writers' Cookbook.' — The Kitchn   '[A] new gem of a book. . . . What makes [it] especially endearing are the common themes that run through recipes, from happy and sad memories of childhood, to the comforts of home and family, to reflections on romance, heartbreak, grief, and even disaster.'  — Artnet  'In this lovely new book, Garrett—herself an artist and writer—has collected stories and recipes from a quirky selection of dozens of writers and artists. The authors here have scavenged their pasts, their families, their relationships, and their personal tragedies. They give us stuff to eat, too.'  — Epicurious  'Do you like eating?

Retired Air Force Colonel and Senior Federal Agent Launches New Action Adventure Fiction We have all heard of tales of UFO's, ghosts, people who say they can talk to the spirits, ancient curses, and magical talismans. Most of us automatically dismiss them as false, figments of people's imagination, and understandably so. However, might not just a few of them be true? I don't know, but I heard this story from a young man the other day who swore the fascinating tale I have set forth in this book really did really occur, because it happened to him. You be the judge. Fourteen year old Greg Worling's life changed the day he found an eight sided coin along the edge of a pond on his parent's farm. The coin sparkled as though it reflected the sun's light even in the shade. Drawn to it, Greg discovers an inscription on the coin that read, 'Greg, drop this coin into the fountain in front of the tree of life.' Weeks later, his little sister by his side, Greg tosses the coin into the small fountain and is instantaneously transported to a strange land. Bob Doerr is an accomplished and award winning author: ...o - Well known for his Jim West series of mystery thriller titles. ...o - Finalist for the Eric Hoffer Award for books in 2010 and 2011 ...o - Awarded Silver Medal for Fiction/Mystery by the Military Writers Society of America in 2011 The Enchanted Coin is a Mouse Gate Fiction Action Adventure and captivates the attention of children and adults alike. The Enchanted Coin is a 2013 grand prize winner of the 'Books Without Publishers' writing contest. Award winning author Bob Doerr grew up in a military family, graduated from the Air Force Academy, and had a career of his own in the Air Force. Bob specialized in criminal investigations and counterintelligence gaining significant insight to the worlds of crime, espionage and terrorism. His work brought him into close coordination with the security agencies of many different countries and filled his mind with the fascinating plots and characters found in his books today. His education credits include a Masters in International Relations from Creighton University. A full time author, he has published five mystery/thrillers, the latest, No One Else to Kill, was released in November 2012. Two of his books were selected as finalists for the Eric Hoffer Award, and Loose Ends Kill was awarded the 2011 Silver medal for Fiction/Mystery by the Military Writers Society of America. Another Colorado Kill received the same Silver medal in 2012, and the silver medal for general fiction at the Stars and Flags national book contest in 2012. He lives in Garden Ridge, Texas, with Leigh, his wife of 39 years.
