I loved the way Tooze describes the sultry musical landscape of Levon Helm’s formative years in the Mississippi Delta and his life beyond The Band. A well-researched account of Helm’s musical style and personal journey for both new and die-hard fans.

With this laugh-out-loud, poignant-ish part-memoir filled with helpful lists like “Top Eight Ways to Avoid Charming Your Therapist,” Novak bravely gives fellow “depressos” permission to lean in to what they feel, and learn things along the way, maybe.

The true story of the glamorous women who were unknowing subjects of Truman Capote’s last unpublished masterpiece, Answered Prayers. Leamer uncovers webs of unsung feminine influence woven across oceans and empires, taking peeks inside the most powerful (and scandalous) social circles of mid-century politics, thanks to Capote’s wicked case of writer’s block and an obsession with his fabulous flock of “swans” that I absolutely now share.

Killers of the Flower Moon will intrigue, terrify, and infuriate.

Woven with the story of J. Edgar Hoover's pet project that became the FBI, and the larger-than-life characters who investigated the crimes during the roaring '20s, this immersive true crime mystery reveals the true villainy of the American West, even a century later.

Published: One World - April 7th, 2020

This thoughtful short story collection is a study of human connections and the landscapes they play out on. Unafraid truths about family, tradition, and women, separated by generations but tied by experience, rise from the soil of the now-American West that is Kali Farjado-Anstine’s ancestral home in this lauded debut. You can’t miss “Remedies,” “Ghost Sickness,” or “All Her Names,” or any of them, really. A necessary read before her first novel comes out in 2022.
