I don't think I'm alone in saying that there is something comforting about hearing about the end of the universe, and there's no one better to tell you about it than Dr. Katie Mack. This book is told with the conversational humor that can only come from someone that is not only incredibly knowledgeable, but also incredibly passionate about a subject. Dr Mack brings us through six ways the universe can end, some far off, and some that could happen at any moment. This is the perfect book for anyone with a morbid sense of curiosity who loves the stars.

When a single mom visiting a friend at the hospital helps out an AIDS patient the nurses won't touch, she has no idea she'll spend the next decade as an advocate and caretaker for gay men in Arkansas, even burying them in her family's cemetery plot when their families reject them. The book is both a time capsule -- including an appearance by early-career Bill Clinton -- and the compelling story of a woman who made a difference in the world without being remotely saintly.

Cary Grant (1904 – 1986) – born Archie Leach in Bristol, England was a charming, talented actor who was the embodiment of a Hollywood MOVIE STAR during the Golden Age. However, he was a complicated man – married five times – insecure - parsimonious. Author Scott Eyman’s new biography gives us the charming, stylish, successful and self-invented Cary Grant, as well as the emotionally complex man filled with self-doubt, despite his iconic status as one of the most beloved stars ever.
