From <i>New York Times</i> opinion writer Margaret Renkl comes an unusual, captivating portrait of a family鈥攁nd of the cycles of joy and grief that inscribe human lives within the natural world.<br /><br /><br /><br />Growing up in Alabama, Renkl was a devoted reader, an explorer of riverbeds and red-dirt roads, and a fiercely loved daughter. Here, in brief essays, she traces a tender and honest portrait of her complicated parents鈥攈er exuberant, creative mother; her steady, supportive father鈥攁nd of the bittersweet moments that accompany a child鈥檚 transition to caregiver.<br /><br /><br /><br />And here, braided into the overall narrative, Renkl offers observations on the world surrounding her suburban Nashville home. Ringing with rapture and heartache, these essays convey the dignity of bluebirds and rat snakes, monarch butterflies and native bees. As these two threads haunt and harmonize with each other, Renkl suggests that there is astonishment to be found in common things: in what seems ordinary, in what we all share. For in both worlds鈥攖he natural one and our own鈥斺€渢he shadow side of love is always loss, and grief is only love鈥檚 own twin.鈥?lt;br /><br /><br /><br />Gorgeously illustrated by the author鈥檚 brother, Billy Renkl, <i>Late Migrations</i> is an assured and memorable debut.

This controversial e-book phenomenon became a best-seller and landed its author, a certified marriage and family therapist, on The O'Reilly Factor and the Rush Limbaugh radio show. Dr. Robert Glover has devoted his career as a psychotherapist to freeing men from what he was dubbed the "Nice Guy Syndrome"-trying too hard to please others while neglecting their own needs, thus causing unhappiness and resentfulness. It's no wonder that unfulfilled Nice Guys lash out in frustration at their loved ones, claims Dr. Glover. He explains how they can stop seeking approval and start getting what they want in life, by presenting the information and tools to help them ensure their needs are met, to express their emotions, to have a satisfying sex life, to embrace their masculinity and form meaningful relationships with other men, and to live up to their creative potential.

<p><b>WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE</b><br /><b>WINNER OF THE NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD </b><br /><b>ONE OF THE <i>NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW</i>'S 10 BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR</b><br /><b></b><br /><b>The first comprehensive historical biography of Laura Ingalls Wilder, the beloved author of the <i>Little House on the Prairie</i> books</b></p><p>Millions of readers of <i>Little House on the Prairie</i> believe they know Laura Ingalls鈥攖he pioneer girl who survived blizzards and near-starvation on the Great Plains, and the woman who wrote the famous autobiographical books. But the true saga of her life has never been fully told. Now, drawing on unpublished manuscripts, letters, diaries, and land and financial records, Caroline Fraser鈥攖he editor of the Library of America edition of the Little House series鈥攎asterfully fills in the gaps in Wilder鈥檚 biography. Revealing the grown-up story behind the most influential childhood epic of pioneer life, she also chronicles Wilder's tumultuous relationship with her journalist daughter, Rose Wilder Lane, setting the record straight regarding charges of ghostwriting that have swirled around the books.</p><p>The Little House books, for all the hardships they describe, are paeans to the pioneer spirit, portraying it as triumphant against all odds. But Wilder鈥檚 real life was harder and grittier than that, a story of relentless struggle, rootlessness, and poverty. It was only in her sixties, after losing nearly everything in the Great Depression, that she turned to children鈥檚 books, recasting her hardscrabble childhood as a celebratory vision of homesteading鈥攁nd achieving fame and fortune in the process, in one of the most astonishing rags-to-riches episodes in American letters.</p><p>Spanning nearly a century of epochal change, from the Indian Wars to the Dust Bowl, Wilder鈥檚 dramatic life provides a unique perspective on American history and our national mythology of self-reliance. With fresh insights and new discoveries, <i>Prairie Fires</i> reveals the complex woman whose classic stories grip us to this day.</p>
