            That September 2, 1939, the day of the Spanish exiles' splendid arrival in Chile, the Second World War broke out in Europe. Victor Dalmau is a young doctor when he is caught up in the Spanish Civil War, a tragedy that leaves his life - and the fate of his country - forever change...d. Together with his sister-in-law, the pianist Roser Bruguera, he is forced out of his beloved Barcelona and into exile. When opportunity to seek refuge in Chile arises, they take it, boarding a ship chartered by the poet Pablo Neruda to the promised `long petal of sea and wine and snow' over the seas. There, they find themselves enmeshed in a rich web of characters who come together in love and tragedy over the course of four generations, destined to witness the battle between freedom and repression as it plays out across the world. A masterful work of historical fiction about hope, exile and belonging, A Long Petal of the Sea is Isabel Allende at the height of her powers.

            Few of us realize that much of our language in the workplace inhibits creative problem-solving and escalates uncertainty and stress. In both high-pressure situations and everyday scenarios, in each meeting and email, we have the opportunity to empower our colleagues. Former U.S. ...Navy Captain David Marquet drew on his experiences transforming the USS Santa Fe from the worst-performing submarine in its fleet to the best to write Turn the Ship Around! Marquet calls his approach Intent-Based Leadership, a set of principles and tools that help leaders empower their people to take responsibility and address challenges without waiting to be told what to do. His new book expands on those principles with a fresh approach to workplace communication. Marquet's insights and examples show how small changes in language can lead to dramatic changes in impact. Praise for Turn the Ship Around! 'I don't know of a finer model of this kind of empowering leadership than Captain Marquet. And in the pages that follow you will find a model for your pathway' Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People 'To say I'm a fan of David Marquet would be an understatement... I'm a fully fledged groupie. He is the kind of leader who comes around only once a generation. He is the kind of leader who doesn't just know how to lead, he knows how to build leaders. His ideas and lessons are invaluable to anyone who wants to build an organization that will outlive them' Simon Sinek, optimist and author of Start with Why

            An instant New York Times bestseller, John Kerry's revealing memoir offers a detailed record of an important life...frank, thoughtful, and clearly written...A bittersweet reminder of what the country once demanded of its leaders (The New York Times Book Review). Every Day Is Extr...a is John Kerry's candid personal story. A Yale graduate, Kerry enlisted in the US Navy in 1966, and served in Vietnam. He returned home highly decorated but disillusioned, and he testified powerfully before Congress as a young veteran opposed to the war. Kerry was elected to the Senate in 1984, eventually serving five terms. In 2004 he was the Democratic presidential nominee and came within one state--Ohio--of winning. He succeeded Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State in 2013. In that position he tried to find peace in the Middle East; dealt with the Syrian civil war while combatting ISIS; and negotiated the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate agreement. In these pages Kerry shows remarkable honesty, depth, even spirituality...There is remarkable poignancy--not the usual currency of the career politician and the country's top diplomat (The Boston Globe). A witness to some of the most important events of our recent history, Kerry tells wonderful stories about colleagues Ted Kennedy and John McCain, as well as President Obama and other major figures. He writes movingly of recovering his faith while in the Senate, and how he deplores the hyper-partisanship that has infected Washington. Every Day Is Extra draws back the curtain on a life you thought you knew, but turns out to be a bit different...A surprisingly personal book (The Washington Post) that shows Kerry for the dedicated, witty, and authentic man that he is and provides forceful testimony for the importance of diplomacy and American leadership to address the increasingly complex challenges of a more globalized world.

            The Fixers: The Bottom-Feeders, Crooked Lawyers, Gossipmongers, and Porn Stars Who Created the 45th President (Hardback)

            The shocking, definitive account of the lawyers and media tycoons who enabled the rise of Donald Trump, featuring new revelations from a Pulitzer Prize-winning Wall Street Journal team With his blunt-force fame and the myths he'd propagated about himself, Donald Trump has always ...moved in a world of gossip barons, crooked lawyers, and porn stars alike. But when he became the Republican nominee for the presidency in 2016, all of these characters crawled out from the underbelly of stardom and stumbled onto the global stage with him. The Fixers is a deeply reported and exquisitely drawn portrait of that world, detailing Donald Trump's historic relationship with his fixers--from his early, hugely influential relationship with Roy Cohn to Michael Cohen and National Enquirer publisher David Pecker--and traces the arc of their interactions from the 1990s through the 2016 campaign, detailing new revelations about all. It is a distinctly American saga that navigates the worlds of reality TV, cash-for-trash tabloids, single-shingle law shops, celebrity bashes, high-end real estate, pornography, and politics. The characters and settings of this book are vessels of a vulgar circus that crisscross the country, from New York to L.A. to D.C. Terrifying, darkly comic, and compulsively readable, The Fixers is an epic political adventure in which greed, lust, and ambition collide, and that leads, ultimately, to the White House.
