      "the glowing ghosts of the radium girls haunt us still."—NPR Books

      The incredible true story of the women who fought America's Undark danger

      The Curies' newly discovered element of radium makes gleaming headlines across the nation as the fresh face of beauty, and wonder drug of the medical community. From body lotion to tonic water, the popular new element shines bright in the otherwise dark years of the First World War.

      Meanwhile, hundreds of girls toil amidst the glowing dust of the radium-dial factories. The glittering chemical covers their bodies from head to toe; they light up the night like industrious fireflies. With such a coveted job, these "shining girls" are the luckiest alive — until they begin to fall mysteriously ill.

      But the factories that once offered golden opportunities are now ignoring all claims of the gruesome side effects, and the women's cries of corruption. And as the fatal poison of the radium takes hold, the brave shining girls find themselves embroiled in one of the biggest scandals of America's early 20th century, and in a groundbreaking battle for workers' rights that will echo for centuries to come.

      A National Bestseller

      “I read it twice, laughing, cringing, and even tearing up.” — Judy Blume,New York Times

      “Powerful . . .All Grown Upis so intimately [and] sharply observed.” —Vogue

      “Bravo to Attenberg, who, with hilarity and honesty, tells the story of an adult woman who wants what she wants, not what she’s supposed to want.” —Marie Claire

      Who is Andrea Bern? When her dippy therapist asks the question, Andrea knows the right things to say: she’s a designer, a friend, a daughter, a sister. But it’s what she leaves unsaid—she’s alone, a drinker, a former artist, a shrieker in bed, captain of the sinking ship that is her flesh—that feels the most true. Everyone around her seems to have a different idea of what it means to be an adult, though. But when Andrea’s niece finally arrives, born with a heartbreaking ailment, the Bern family is forced to reexamine what really matters. Will this drive them together or tear them apart? Told in gut-wrenchingly honest, mordantly comic vignettes, All Grown Up is a breathtaking display of Jami Attenberg’s powers as a storyteller and a whip-smart examination of one woman’s life, lived entirely on her own terms.

      “Deeply enjoyable.” —Marisa Meltzer,Elle

      “Bravo to Attenberg, who, with hilarity and honesty, tells the story of an adult woman who wants what she wants, not what she’s supposed to want.” —Marie Claire

      All Grown Up[is] a smart, funny/sad and unflinchingly honest novel about a single New Yorker . . . In sparkling prose, [Attenberg] brings this wonderful character so fully to life that after the book ended, I found myself wishing Andrea well as if she were a good friend and wondering what she would do next.”Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

      “I read it twice, laughing, cringing, and even tearing up.” — Judy Blume,New York Times

      “Addicting and incredibly refreshing . . . Attenberg brings the often upsetting, often comedic realities of life across in poignant, astute vignettes that will live in the reader’s heart for a long, long time.” Travel and Leisure

      “Thank you, Jami Attenberg, for pushing back against society’s assumptions about what is allowed to matter in our lives. For giving us a different kind of narrative.All Grown Up is not all fluffy and lovely. It turns out that we have other stories—we single people. We human beings.”Bustle

      “Revolutionary . . . [A] perceptive study of love, sacrifice, and what it really means to be an adult.”Tablet

      “Jami Attenberg deftly travels inside the head of a 39-year-old woman who has no interest in doing what she’s supposed to do and follows her heart instead of her mind—a story that’s sexy, charming, and impossible to put down.”Newsweek

      “Powerful . . .All Grown Upis so intimately [and] sharply observed.”Vogue

      “Attenberg is one of our finest contemporary storytellers, and here, with her trademark clever, witty voice, she tackles the age-old question plaguing people of all ages: When do we know if we’re actually all grown up?”Nylon, “50 Books We Can’t Wait to Read in 2017”

      “Smart, heartfelt, and really freakin’ funny.”— Sara NoviÄ?, Elle.com, “25 Most Anticipated Books by Women for 2017”

      “Attenberg knows how to make a reader laugh andfeel. This novel takes a hard look at what it means to be a woman living on her own terms.”— Lisa Lucas,Martha Stewart Living, “Page Turners for 2017”

      “I read it start to finish in one go. I can’t think of another book I’ve done that about recently.”— Mary Louise Kelly, NPR’sWeekend Edition Sunday

      “Attenberg’s fifth novel is her best yet. It’s a super-smart, often extremely funny, sometimes heartbreaking portrait of a 39-year-old, single, child-free heroine in New York City who’s taking her very best shot at living life on her own terms . . . As angry, sad and raw as it is astute, hilarious and hopeful,All Grown Up puts other novels in this vein to shame.” Observer

      “There’s something fresh and enquiring in Attenberg’s writing; a gloriously technicolor quality to the voice of her anti-heroine. As is often the hallmark of these projects, much of the humour comes from a wicked brew of truth-telling, honesty and bravery. Of saying the unsayable. In this respect, Attenberg writes with a scalpel, and has presented one of the finest, and most unexpected, character studies you’re likely to read all year.” Irish Independent

      “Jami Attenberg will have you laughing, cursing, and ranting right along with her book’s vibrant main character, Andrea—a 39-year-old single New Yorker trying to figure out how to hold her life together. (And trying to figure out what ‘having your life together’ even means.) This book has got serious spunk.”Bustle, “The 9 Best Fiction Books Coming Out in March”

      “Amidst the gems of mordant wit,All Grown Up plumbs deeper, darker veins, the ready ease with which sex (and drugs and alcohol) can become coping mechanisms, the specter of being stuck forever as everyone else moves on, ‘architecting new lives.’ Do yourself a favor and buy this book.”— Tomi Obaro,Buzzfeed Books

      “Told in smart and funny vignettes,All Grown Up is an examination of what it means to be a woman and a grownup in today’s times. This deceptively short novel will stay with you long after finishing the last page.”PopSugar, “26 Hot New Books You'll Want to Get Your Hands On This Spring”

      “With a flair for understatement and crack timing, she makes Andrea Bern immensely flawed but highly resilient and self-aware, capable of reflecting on the lack of ballast in her life without drowning in clichés or Issues. It’s essential to the story that Andrea is unreservedly single; what makes it so good is that she’s absolutely singular.”Vulture,8 Books You Need to Read This March

      “With a satirical voice and astounding pathos, Attenberg’s latest protagonist draws readers into the enthralling and thought-provoking world she inhabits, against the backdrop of an important social conversation about contemporary gender roles.”Harpers Bazaar

      “Fantastic—and wholly unlike anything else she’s written.”Vol. 1 Brooklyn

      “Attenberg’s latest takes on the ridiculous standards we set for ourselves, all with humor and aching relatability.”Pure Wow

      “Funny, insightful.”Dallas Morning News

      “This is a novel about how to step up when your smug married friend suddenly gets divorced, or when your annoying mum really needs you; about ‘being there’ for people when you don’t even know where ‘there’ is. It has hope, in spades.” Guardian

      All Grown Up is a smart, addictive, hilarious and relevant novel.”— Meredith Maran,Washington Post

      “Andrea, 39, is totally single. No kids, no men, nothing keeping her from living her life to its full potential, which she does. Until her niece is born with a tragic illness, and Andrea's whole family is forced to confront their values, their lifestyles, and their choices. Told in vignettes,All Grown Up asks what happens after you've got the whole 'adult' thing under control.”Glamour,“Best Books to Read in 2017”

      “This is where Attenberg’s brilliance lies: in her ability to mix tenderness with tragicomedy; to find what’s funny in the funereal; to render the dignity of those who fear they’ve lost it . . . Outstanding.”Haaretz

      “Funny, tragic and delightful.”Chicago Tribune

      “Attenberg captures the kaleidoscopic flow of Andrea’s life in spare and witty vignettes that build to a surprising and moving conclusion.” — Jane Ciabattari, BBC.com, “Ten Books You Should Read in March”

      “Hilarious, courageous and mesmerizing from page one,All Grown Up is a little gem that packs a devastating wallop. It’s that rare book I’m dying to give all my friends so we can discuss it deep into the night. I’m in awe of Jami Attenberg.”— Maria Semple, author ofWhere’d You Go, Bernadette?

      “Jami Attenberg’s sharply drawn protagonist, Andrea, has such a riveting, propulsive voice thatAll Grown Up is hard to put down, but I urge you to resist reading it in one sitting. Both the prose and the author’s knowing excavation of one woman’s desires, compromises, strengths and fears deserve closer attention. Like Andrea herself, this novel is beautiful and brutal, intelligent and funny, frank and sexy.”— Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney,New York Timesbest-selling author ofThe Nest

      “Jami Attenberg’s Andrea is the most addicting female protagonist voice I have read in years, with her cutting observations on human relationships. This witty journey through a mess of men, female friendships, family and boozy urban existence positions the single girl not as object to be fixed but as contemporary sage and seer: the ultimate witness of truth in love today.”— Melissa Broder, author ofSo Sad Today

      “Jami Attenberg has written her frankest, funniest, and most riveting and heartbreaking book yet. In Andrea, she has created a character women will be talking about for years; she has opened the door for us to see ourselves in literature in a new way, writing with skill and fearlessness few others can match.” — Emily Gould, author ofFriendship

      “What a voice. Honest and hilarious, unflinching and unapologetic, Jami Attenberg writes what it is to be single, sexual, and child-free by choice. I read the first page ofAll Grown Up and knew the novelist was going to outdo herself. I am happy to report that she most certainly did.”— Helen Ellis, author ofAmerican Housewife

      “Jami Attenberg’sAll Grown Up is one part Denis Johnson, one part Grace Paley, but all her. Every sentence pulls taut and glows—electric, gossipy, searing fun that is also a map to how to be more human.”— Alexander Chee, author ofThe Queen of the Night

      “Is all life junk—sparkly and seductive and devastating—just waiting to be told correctly by someone who will hold our hand and walk with us a while confirming that what we’re living is true? This is a good proud urban book, a sad and specific blast for the fearless to read. Thank you Jami.”— Eileen Myles, author ofChelsea Girls

      All Grown Up is one of those rare books—even the greatest writers often only get one or two in their careers—in which an author’s unique sensibility meets with the story she was born to tell. This fractured, soulful portrait of a determinedly independent woman—a woman whose radical independence often puts her at odds with a misunderstanding society—is vital reading for women and men alike.”— Stefan Merrill Block, author ofThe Story of Forgetting andThe Storm at the Door

      “Packed with tension, pathos, and vitality . . . This is a potent first novel from a formidable talent.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

      “The best fictional account I’ve read of the way the internet has shaped our inner lives.”Guardian(UK)

      At twenty-three Alice Hare, a loner, arrives in New York with only the vaguest of plans: to find a city to call home. Instead she discovers the online profile of a Japanese writer called Mizuko Himura, whose stories blur the line between autobiography and fiction. Alice becomes infatuated with Mizuko from afar, convinced this stranger’s life holds a mirror to her own. Realities multiply as Alice closes in on her “internet twin,” staging a chance encounter and inserting herself into his orbit. When Mizuko disappears, Alice is alone and adrift again. Tortured by her silence, Alice uses the only tool at her disposal, writing herself back into Mizuko’s story, with disastrous consequences.

      “A smart and lyrical evocation of that murky emotional terrain between our online and offline selves.” —Vice (UK)

      “At once a riveting mystery and a literary tour de force,Sympathy had me spellbound from the first page to the last.”Emily Gould, author ofFriendship

      “Clever, riddled with a network of allusions similar to that of Marisha Pessl’sSpecial Topics in Calamity Physics…Olivia Sudjic’s smart debut novel is an uncomfortably contemporary tale of unrequited love in the internet age.”—NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

      "Sympathy will double-click your heart."—VANITY FAIR

      “In the digital age, the lives of glamorous others have never felt more tantalizingly near, or so finds the lonely antiheroine of Olivia Sudjic’sSympathy.”—VOGUE

      "Sudjic’s figurative approach to depicting social media is what really marks [Sympathy] as thefirst truly literary book largely about Instagram...Sympathy is an exceptionally unnerving read. The book explores digital power dynamics, and the deep implication of our selves with these dynamics, with a sophistication that never feels pretentious. Sympathy is a remarkable debut, and with the arrival of such a novelist we can finally welcome our techno-dystopian future with open arms."—NEW REPUBLIC

      "Sympathy is a sneaky, subtle debut novel about intimacy, aspiration and the Internet. As the protagonist, Alice, stalks and befriends her Instagram hero in a worsening spiral of obsession, the reader falls into something like the glassy-eyed fugue state you reach after too much online scrolling: mesmerized, inert, unable to stop."—NPR

      "If last summer’s must-read debut was Emma Cline’s The Girls, this year it’s undoubtedly Olivia Sudjic’s remarkable Sympathy."—VOGUE(UK)

      "In this zeitgeisty debut, Olivia Sudjic has revealed herself to be an erudite writer who can weave together themes of online obsessions, family secrets and unexpected parallel lives...Filled with explosive intelligence and dark humour,Sympathyis both beautiful and raw, and captures the essence of personal responsibility in the digital age."—ELLE (UK)

      “Olivia Sudjic’s smart, savvy debut novel is a digital-age cautionary tale about liking too much, following too intensely and unraveling while striving to connect… Sudjic excavates the dark depths of the soul, but she also hits us with regular bouts of comic brilliance…This is a fresh, topical, switched-on novel…Sympathy is fact-filled, but it is also packed with tension, pathos and vitality…This is a potent first novel from a formidable talent.”MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE

      Sympathy by Olivia Sudjic [is] the best fictional account I’ve read of the way the internet has shaped our inner lives. A literary thriller that confirms the arrival of a major new talent.”THE GUARDIAN

      "The book of the summer...Sympathy opens with what must be the most intense description of an Instagram follow request ever committed to print...With this, the stage is set for a contemporary tale of obsession...What makes Sympathy such a standout in its approach to social media is a move way from Black Mirror-style satire and, instead, a smart and lyrical evocation of that murky emotional terrain between our online and offline selves...Full of wry humour and sharp observations."—VICE (UK)

      “A fascinating story about how we connect in the digital age… ImagineAlice Through the Looking Glass for the Instagram generation and you’ll get a sense ofSympathy… it explores the obsession of one young woman with another, an obsession fed by social media feeds and resulting in a slow but devastating slippage of identity… At more than 400 pages,Sympathy serves up David Mitchell levels of plot; it is also subtly mimetic… [its] narrative advances like a search, link by link, as Alice follows her nose through meat – and cyberspace – leaving not breadcrumbs but photos behind… But ifSympathy is in part a cautionary tale, its author is very far from po-faced: abuzz with ideas and enthusiasm, she leaves you convinced that there’s much, much more to come.”—OBSERVER,"Meet the new faces of fiction for 2017"

      "As the novel [...] so chillingly illustrates, what social media actually offers is more often the illusion of connection...Fittingly, the narrative is held together by a dream-like disjointedness...the reading experience rendered akin to that of losing oneself online...A gripping odyssey into one woman’s online-addled inner life that shrewdly ties together the age-old hubris of youth with a particular sort of new digital naïveté."—INDEPENDENT (UK)

      "[Sympathy] represents an extraordinary coming together of stories and ideas."THE SPECTATOR (UK)

      "A young woman is consumed by obsession in a thrilling debut that skewers our digital culture...engrossing...Novels often handle digital culture gingerly, as a strange new world that is somehow alien to our own and to that of the written page. Sudjic's achievement is to incorporate this world at a granular level; it provides both the mechanisms necessary to propel her plot and the texture that defines her characters and their experience of New York...Sympathy is an intelligent and absorbing literary thriller that promises much for the future."—FINANCIAL TIMES(UK)

      “An all-too-real depiction of the fickle feeling of closeness the internet can inspire.”—i-D/VICE,"10 brilliant emerging female authors to read in 2017"

      "This debut has been acclaimed as the 'First Great Instagram Novel', and what it does is bothnew and strange – and deeply familiar. From the infancy of the industrial revolution, novels have thrived on technological change, dramatising the aesthetics of machines as well as the changes (usually deformations) they make to the human soul. The pantheon of post-industrial writing is Humphrey Jennings’s Pandaemonium: The Coming of the Machine 1660-1886, and if there were to be a sequel for our digital age, Sympathy would earn a place in it for itsexquisite, sustained observation of our use of smartphones...Sympathy is an astute, quirky, slow-burning satire on emerging codes of behaviour, intergenerational differences, globalisation, the tech industry and the vortex of the dark web...Rarely do novels so ostentatiously of the moment succeed so well at gesturing to the universal."THE GUARDIAN (UK)

      “Olivia Sudjic’s skillful debut novel plays on the idea that everything in our digital lives is seen through some sort of filter—so where, exactly, lies the truth?”—READITFORWARD, "17 Books We're Excited to Read in 2017"

      Sympathy turns out to be—like so many mysteries—a book about the past rising back into the present and setting everything askew. It’s a haunting conclusion to a novel that’s frequently disarming.”—LITHUB

      “Perfect for book groups.”Booklist

      “Stewart has another winner on her hands.”—Suspense Magazine

      Constance Kopp is back—with a badge and a taste for justice. She has finally earned her deputy sheriff’s badge and is ready to tackle a new kind of case: defending independent young women brought into the Hackensack jail on dubious charges of waywardness, incorrigibility, and moral depravity. Such were the laws—and morals—of 1916.
      Constance uses her authority as deputy sheriff, and occasionally exceeds it, to investigate and support these women when no one else will. But it’s her sister Fleurette—who runs away from their sleepy farm to join the glamorous world of vaudeville—who puts Constance’s beliefs to the test. Is there a wayward girl in her own family?
      Set against the backdrop of World War I and drawn from the true story of the Kopp sisters,Miss Kopp’s Midnight Confessions is a spirited, page-turning story that will delight fans of historical fiction and lighthearted detective fiction alike.

      “Readers will eagerly await the opportunity to spend more time among the fearless and funny Kopp sisters.”—Book Reporter

      "Perfect for book groups."Booklist

      "Constance's ability to hold her own in male-dominated investigations and courtrooms, as well as her determination to present the facts, makes her a welcome 'vision of an entirely different kind of woman,' hopefully with more tales to come. Lively and admirable female characters emboldened by their circumstances, impeccably realized and given new life by Stewart."—Kirkus

      "The cases here are based on the experiences of real women, a technique that Stewart has employed in previous volumes. Collectively, the story lines intersect to create an intriguing window into women's rights and the social mores that women challenged on the eve of World War I. VERDICT A lovely addition for series fans and aficionados of historical fiction."Library Journal

      "Stewart’s third novel in her clever and original Kopp Sisters series continues the thorn adventures of Constance Kopp."—Publishers Weekly

      “Penny’s absorbing, intricately plotted 13th Gamache novel proves she only gets better at pursuing dark truths with compassion and grace.” —PEOPLE

      “Louise Penny wrote the book on escapist mysteries.” —The New York Times Book Review

      “You won't want Louise Penny's latest to end….Any plot summary of Penny’s novels inevitably falls short of conveying the dark magic of this series.... It takes nerve and skill — as well as heart — to write mysteries like this. ‘Glass Houses,’ along with many of the other Gamache books, is so compelling that, for the space of reading it, you may well feel that much of what’s going on in the world outside the novel is ‘just noise.’” —Maureen Corrigan,The Washington Post

      When a mysterious figure appears in Three Pines one cold November day, Armand Gamache and the rest of the villagers are at first curious. Then wary. Through rain and sleet, the figure stands unmoving, staring ahead.

      From the moment its shadow falls over the village, Gamache, now Chief Superintendent of the Sûreté du Québec, suspects the creature has deep roots and a dark purpose. Yet he does nothing. What can he do? Only watch and wait. And hope his mounting fears are not realized.

      But when the figure vanishes overnight and a body is discovered, it falls to Gamache to discover if a debt has been paid or levied.

      Months later, on a steamy July day as the trial for the accused begins in Montréal, Chief Superintendent Gamache continues to struggle with actions he set in motion that bitter November, from which there is no going back. More than the accused is on trial. Gamache’s own conscience is standing in judgment.

      InGlass Houses, her latest utterly gripping book, number-oneNew York Times bestselling author Louise Penny shatters the conventions of the crime novel to explore what Gandhi called the court of conscience. A court that supersedes all others.

      “Louise Penny wrote the book on escapist mysteries.” —The New York Times Book Review

      “You won't want Louise Penny's latest to end….Any plot summary of Penny’s novels inevitably falls short of conveying the dark magic of this series.... It takes nerve and skill — as well as heart — to write mysteries like this.”
      —Maureen Corrigan,The Washington Post

      “Ms. Penny has a gift for linking the mundane to the mythic. Steadfast, civilized and grimly determined, Gamache becomes a heraldic figure, as brave and cunning as the hero of an Icelandic saga, and the contemporary evils he battles have apocalyptic overtones....[With a] cinematic finale, in which the book’s well-laid and carefully sustained suspense is at last released.” —Tom Nolan,Wall Street Journal

      “Outstanding....On all counts, ‘Glass Houses’ succeeds brilliantly, full of elegant prose, intricate plots, and—most of all—Penny’s moving, emotionally complex hero and his circle of friends and colleagues.”
      The Seattle Times

      “Penny—whose books wind up on Best Novels of the Year lists, not 'just' Best Mysteries—is a one-woman argument against literary snobbery....Top notch....Penny is a master of the slow burn, with readers only seeing the final pattern as everything is set aflame.” —Christian Science Monitor

      “In the most intriguing installment yet….Louise Penny deftly combines crime and punishment, a timeless avenger and a dark exploration of the conscience….A great and twisting tale, as we’ve come to expect from the previous 12 Gamache novels, but also an exploration of moral judgments, mental frailty and the eerie notion of reckoning: We all must pay our debts…A profound story.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

      “Penny's latest is one of her best ever. From the very first page, when Gamache begins his testimony in a court case, the reader is riveted....I couldn't stop reading. This is the perfect holiday weekend book.”
      —Margaret Cannon,The Globe and Mail

      Gamache will face life-changing questions about the nature of guilt and innocence and the thin blue line separating law and conscience, leaving the reader contemplating these conundrums well after the final page has been turned.” —BookPage (Top Pick in Mystery)

      “With grace and insight…Penny has pushed the boundaries of the genre with each novel, and ‘Glass Houses’ takes them still further. With an intricate and intelligent storyline, cherished characters, a setting that cries out ‘come live here’ and a terrifying climax, she produces another stellar literary novel. And she does so with compassion, decency and love as she depicts evil, exalts courage and neither flinches nor preaches as she confronts moral ambiguities—and the health andsickness within each soul.”
      Richmond Times-Dispatch

      “Louise Penny steers the complex plot… to a white-knuckle ending….If it is conceivable for Penny to top herself, she has done so in this soul-searching, psychologically insightful journey into each of her memorable characters.” —Bookreporter.com

      “The tension has never been greater…A meticulously built mystery that follows a careful ascent toward a breaking point that will leave you breathless. It’s Three Pines as you have never seen it before.”
      Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

      “Three Pines is a sublime metaphor for the precariousness of harmony wherever we find it...one of the most entrancing fictional worlds in popular literature.” —Booklist(starred review)

      “The award-winning Penny does not rest on her laurels with this challenging and timely book. Though touched by the evils of the outside world, Three Pines remains a singular place away from time.”
      —Library Journal (starred review)

      “Penny’s poetic style of writing and her deeply realized characters, with their mix of flaws and heroism, make her novels irresistible….Penny delicately explores the tension of an officer who may be sworn to uphold the law, but who feels compelled to do something else, in a fascinating novel that is sure to appeal to a variety of readers—whether they typically enjoy mysteries or not.” —ShelfAwareness

      “An exciting, high-stakes climax.”— Publishers Weekly

      Description

      From Marissa Meyer, the #1New York Times–bestselling story of Wonderland's most notorious villain: the Queen of Hearts.

      Long before she was the terror of Wonderland—the infamous Queen of Hearts—she was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.

      Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen.

      Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the king and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans.

      In her first stand-alone teen novel, theNew York Times-bestselling author of the Lunar Chronicles dazzles us with a prequel toAlice's Adventures in Wonderland.

      "Jest and Catherine have a playfully clandestine relationship. . . . Meyer’s worldbuilding is extensive and impressive." —Publishers Weekly
