              By Fields, Anna

              This history of the women who make us laugh is "a piercing, smart, and essential read for students and fans of comedy" (Booklist). "I'm not funny at all. What I am is brave." -Lucille Ball The Girl in the Show explores how comedy and feminism have grown hand in hand to give women... a stronger voice in the ongoing fight for equality. From I Love Lucy to SNL to today's rising cable and web series stars, Anna Fields's entertaining, thoughtful, and candid retrospective combines personal narratives with the historical, political, and cultural contexts of the feminist movement. With interview subjects such as Abbi Jacobson, Molly Shannon, Mo Collins, and Lizz Winstead as well as actresses, stand-up comics, writers, producers, and female comedy troupes, Fields shares true stories of wit and heroism from some of our most treasured (and underrepresented) artists. Creating a blueprint for the feminist comedians of tomorrow using lessons of the past, The Girl in the Show encourages readers to revel in-and rebel against-our collective ideas of women's comedy. "Tracing the modern history of the ways women make us laugh, Anna Fields connects the dots from Mae West to Amy Schumer, from Sophie Tucker to Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Fascinating, funny... required reading for an era in which all of us-men and women, comedians and fans alike-are discovering how powerful we are when we stand up." -Mary Elizabeth Williams, author of A Series of Catastrophes & Miracles

              Clipped by a speeding car as she crosses her street in Boston's South End, Regina Cutter gratefully accepts the help of her new upstairs tenant, Steven Damelin, a single young financial analyst. Reggie is surprised to learn from him that her late Aunt Jo, who was also a psychic, ...was involved in a deal with Steven shortly before her death. But before Reggie can learn specifics, Steven is brutally murdered in the upstairs flat, and Reggie's own front door is smeared with blood marks that look like Chinese characters. Reggie has used her psychic powers before to help the Boston PD, but the homicide detective assigned to Steven's case not only lacks faith in her abilities but also makes it clear that she's not above suspicion. On the defensive and relegated to the sidelines, Reggie resolves to find the murderer--who may already have picked her as the next victim.

              My Year of Meats, Ruth Ozeki s delicious debut novel, won a devoted following and was hailed by critics as inventing a new genre: the eco-saga. Here, Ozeki takes us to the heart of the potato farming industry. Yumi Fuller is a Japanese-American prodigal daughter returning home to... the Idaho potato farm she ran away from twenty-five years earlier. Then a freewheeling hippie chick, Yumi (a.k.a. Yummy) is now a fairly responsible parent and a professor. But can she possibly be prepared to face her dying father, her Alzheimer s-devastated mother, her former lover, and Cass, the best friend she left behind? As she grapples with her conflicted past and uncertain future, Yumi collides with a rollicking band of environmentalists who see her parents potato farm as the ideal answer in their fight against genetic engineering. With a quirky cast of characters and a keen eye for the vicissitudes of corporate life, political resistance, youth culture, aging baby boomers, and globalization, as well as the beauty of seeds, roots, and all growing things, All Over Creation offers something for just about everyone.

              Stanley Huysman, a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, had spent his later years on far-out experiments never much heeded by the scientific community. Only after Huysman's death does his visionary genius become clear, when his widow, Irma, arranges for Drew Lancaster to write the scie...ntist's biography. As Drew delves into Huysman's notes, he discovers not only that the great scientist had actually been able to induce telepathy in his subjects by genetic manipulation, but also that Huysman's assistant, Clyde Dohemy, has unscrupulously taken over the project in hopes of lucrative funding. When Drew recruits his ex-wife, Irma, and a group of young people who knew about Huysman's experiments to set a trap for Dohemy, they are drawn into a web of secrets involving Senate files, counterfeit money, gambling casinos, and the Secret Service.
