      From the Pulitzer Prize finalist and author of The Moor’s Account, here is a timely and powerful novel about the suspicious death of a Moroccan immigrant—at once a family saga, a murder mystery, and a love story, informed by the treacherous fault lines of American culture.

      Late one spring night, Driss Guerraoui, a Moroccan immigrant living in California, is walking across a darkened intersection when he is killed by a speeding car. The repercussions of his death bring together a diverse cast of characters: Guerraoui’s daughter Nora, a jazz composer who returns to the small town in the Mojave she thought she'd left for good; his widow, Maryam, who still pines after her life in the old country; Efraín, an undocumented witness whose fear of deportation prevents him from coming forward; Jeremy, an old friend of Nora's and an Iraq War veteran; Coleman, a detective who is slowly discovering her son's secrets; Anderson, a neighbor trying to reconnect with his family; and the murdered man himself.

      As the characters—deeply divided by race, religion, and class—tell their stories, connections among them emerge, even as Driss’s family confronts its secrets, a town faces its hypocrisies, and love, messy and unpredictable, is born.

      One of Time Magazine's Best Fiction of 2019

      Named a Most Anticipated Book for 2019: Entertainment Weekly, The Boston Globe, New York Magazine/Vulture, The Millions, Bustle, Electric Literature, Nylon, HuffPost, BookPage, The BBC, and Buzzfeed

      "Powerful . . . Fascinating . . . Heartbreaking . . . It matters desperately . . . The novel opens into a collective confessional . . . At the core of The Other Americans is a deep anxiety: What if the truth is contradictory or so obfuscated that we lose the will to pursue it? For the reader, the novel presents something of a Rorschach test. Will our belief and sympathy depend on the speaker’s racial or gender identity, or perhaps his or her age?"
      The New York Times Book Review

      "'Other Americans take center stage in a timely new novel . . . You feel like the promise of America can still come through after all."
      —Fresh Air, Maureen Corrigan


      "Lalami gives us a searching exploration of the lives of several individuals with whom mainstream American society has a vexed relationship."
      The Washington Post

      "A compelling portrait of race and immigration in America . . . Lalami is remarkably skilled at rendering the interior lives of her cast."
      Time

      "The Other Americans confirms Lalami’s reputation as one of the country’s most sensitive interrogators, probing at the fault lines in family, and the wider world."
      Financial Times

      "What a monumental challenge it is to reveal the state of America, to assert what unites and divides us—and what remarkable insight Lalami demonstrates by doing just that. Her interrogation is rigorous, and her provocations—about love’s dangerous power, the ties between resentment and privilege—resonate through to the last page."
      Entertainment Weekly

      "A powerful novel of intolerance and compassion, resilience and weakness, love and loss, populated by flawed but sympathetic characters whose lives are rocked by actions and emotions beyond their control."
      The Economist

      "Pulitzer Prize finalist Lalami (The Moor’s Account) may be our finest contemporary chronicler of immigration and its discontents. Her new novel spares no one, and it’s the kind of page-turning mystery you crave for a rainy reading weekend. The book uses different perspectives to uncover the real story behind a Moroccan immigrant’s death in a California intersection."
      The Washington Post

      "From its first sentence, The Other Americans grabs the reader with its directness and urgency."
      Minneapolis Star Tribune

      “Splendid . . . At once mystery novel, character study and poignant reflection on the immigrant experience, The Other Americans is the kind of book you read breathlessly, savoring each character’s turn in the spotlight even as you miss the others. Together their voices create a vivid portrait of a time and place in America; a town of simmering resentments, wary tension, unexpected connections and uncanny beauty.”
      —The Seattle Times

      "Laila Lalami describes all her characters brilliantly—literally so: They spring from the page. Readers can see many of them vividly, and empathize with the problems that shape their behavior, even while sometimes feeling irritation . . . The construction of this novel is deft. As the author moves among the characters’ tales, she engages different parts of our minds and hearts. Our feelings and ideas are enlarged. At the end, the Americans in these pages are no more “other” than anyone else in this nation of immigrants. The novel has done its job because of Laila Lalami’s extraordinary descriptions of personal dynamics and her evocations of place, especially the desert."
      The Washington Times

      “Remarkable, timely novel. Impeccably written story about a hit and run, a family that must grapple with their grief as they try to make sense of why they’ve lost Driss, the patriarch, and the slowly unraveling mystery of who is responsible for the unthinkable. I love the depth of character here for Nora and Jeremy. The narrative is good from many points of view but theirs is the heart of this story and what a beautiful beating heart it is.” 
      —Roxane Gay

      “It’s a combo love story, mystery and literary exploration of immigration in America.”
      —Nicholas Kristof

      “This deftly constructed account of a crime and its consequences shows up, in its quiet way, the pressures under which ordinary Americans of Muslim background have labored since the events of 9/11.”
      —J.M. Coetzee, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature
       
      “A writer of uncommon conviction and tremendous insight.” 
      —Viet Thanh Nguyen, author of The Sympathizer

      "Lalami’s crisp, straightforward prose offers the perfect counterpoint to the complexity of her plot, which artfully interweaves past and present. Reminiscent of Ann Patchett’s Commonwealth in its depiction of the enduring effects of family secrets and betrayals, The Other Americans also addresses a multitude of other issues—immigration, prejudice, post-traumatic stress, love and murder—with what can only be described as magical finesse."
      Bookpage (starred review)

      "Powerful . . . In a narrative that succeeds as mystery and love story, family and character study, Lalami captures the complex ways humans can be strangers not just outside their “tribes” but within them, as well as to themselves."
      Publishers Weekly (starred review)

      "Lalami impressively conducts this chorus of flawed yet graceful human beings to mellifluous effect . . . An eloquent reminder that frame of reference is everything when defining the 'other.'"
      Booklist (starred review)

      "Lalami is in thrilling command of her narrative gifts, reminding readers why The Moor's Account was a Pulitzer finalist . . . Nuanced characters drive this novel . . . Lalami expertly mines an American penchant for rendering the 'other.'"
      Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

      Description
      An empathetic, moving account of what drives indigenous peasants to support armed struggle despite severe state repression, including lives lost, and homes and communities destroyed

      Over the past decade, the heavily forested, mineral-rich region of Bastar in central India has emerged as one of the most militarized sites in the country. The government calls the Maoist insurgency the “biggest security threat” to India. In 2005, a state-sponsored vigilante movement, the Salwa Judum, burned hundreds of villages, driving their inhabitants into state-controlled camps, drawing on counterinsurgency techniques developed in Malaysia, Vietnam and elsewhere. Apart from rapes and killings, hundreds of “surrendered” Maoist sympathizers were conscripted as auxiliaries. The conflict continues to this day, taking a toll on the lives of civilians, security forces and Maoist cadres.

      In 2007, Sundar and others took the Indian government to the Supreme Court over the human rights violations arising out of the conflict. In a landmark judgment in 2011 the court banned state support for vigilantism. The Burning Forest describes this brutal war in the heart of India, and what it tells us about the courts, media and politics of the country. The result is a fascinating critical account of Indian democracy.

      Reviews
      “A very important and interesting book which should be widely read … A deeply disturbing analysis of the sacrifice of tribal lives and communities caught between the camouflaged barbarity of the security forces and the violent arrogance of a deflected rebellion. The appeal for reasoned humanity cannot be any stronger—or more eloquent—than this.”
      —Amartya Sen

      “How does democracy affect the prosecution of civil war? Nandini Sundar explores this question with untold courage and fierce determination in her remarkable extended ethnography of counter-insurgency in Chhattisgarh (India)—a desperate struggle to clear the land for mineral exploitation. Starting from poor adivasi villagers, aided and abetted by Naxalites, Sundar lays out in dispassionate detail the history of escalating violence, spurred on by the atrocities of a state-sponsored vigilante group and special police force. Stung by the lack of interest in the Indian media and parliament, she and two collaborators pursued and finally won a Supreme Court case against the state of Chhattisgarh. But, again, with no obvious effect. By multiplying opportunities to contest state violence, democratic institutions may have moderated but also extended the civil war. A rare and brilliant treatment of a topic few social scientists would dare to touch, let alone examine at such close quarters and for over two decades.”
      —Michael Burawoy

      The Burning Forest is vivid, challenging and informative—an exemplar of engaged sociology and anthropology. It is a stellar account of the tension between villagers, insurgents and the multiple levels of state action and inaction, the intricate complications of the legal system and of course, the politics of it all. Nandini Sundar’s empathy for the people of the forest and their struggles for a dignified life and livelihood is heart-warming.”
      —Ari Sitas

      “This meticulous and powerful book not only documents a brutal regime of internal colonialism in the world’s largest democracy. It reveals the insidious ways in which consent to state oppression is manufactured and amplified. Everyone interested in the commingled fate of democracy and capitalism in the postcolonial world should read this book.”
      —Pankaj Mishra

      “Nandini Sundar, an extraordinary anthropologist-activist, pulls no punches in describing the greed and cynical violence of state agencies, mining companies, politicians and immigrants. Her account of life in the Maoist rebel zones is graphic, full of empathy but by no means uncritical. This is a story that everyone who cares about India must read.”
      —Partha Chatterjee

      “Nandini Sundar is one of India’s most distinguished anthropologists, and the leading academic authority on Bastar. But she is also one of Indian democracy’s most passionate voices. This is a searing critique of the state, and one that Indian democracy needs to hear.”
      —Pratap Bhanu Mehta

      “Every thinking Indian, every citizen who is concerned about the present and future of the Republic, should read The Burning Forest. It is an impeccably researched and finely written work of scholarship, redolent with insight, and displaying enormous courage as well.”
      —Ramachandra Guha, Hindustan Times

      “If many places are like Bastar, few books are like The Burning Forest. It resonates with classics on frontiers and dispossession.”
      —Christian Lund, Journal of Agrarian Change

      “Sundar’s book is an exceptional expose of the scandal of rural governance in India, a chronicle of State excesses, an anthropologist’s view about how conflicts perpetuate themselves and an account of how India’s democracy is degraded when few are watching. Policymakers ought to take away one the key lesson from it that there really are no military solutions to social conflicts.”
      —Sushil Aaron, Hindustan Times

      “Sundar’s book is a must-read for those interested in the genesis and the nature of conflict in Bastar.”
      Hindu

      “The work needs to be celebrated for its scholarship, for its independence and for its courage.”

      The Greatest Western Writer Of The 21st Century

      William Johnstone is acclaimed for his American frontier chronicles. A national bestseller, the legendary storyteller, along with J.A. Johnstone, has written a powerful new novel set in Texas--one century after the Revolutionary War. . .

      Liberty—Or Die For It

      One hundred years ago, American patriots picked up rifles and fought against British tyranny. That was Boston. There the enemy was King George III and his British troops. Now, In Last Chance, Texas, in the Big Bend River country, it's Abraham Hacker, a ruthless cattle baron who will slaughter anyone who tries to lay claim to the fertile land and everything on it. For Last Chance, freedom is under siege one violent act at a time. Until wounded Texas Ranger Hank Cannan arrives in town. Seeing the terrorized townfolk, Cannan is ready to start a second revolution. It's going to take a lot of guts. But one way or the other, Cannan is out to set Last Chance free--with bullets, blood, and a willingness to kill--or die--for the American right of freedom. . .

      'One of the freshest, funniest, most exciting new voices I've read for a long time.' Jane Fallon

      Meet Martha Ross. She dreams of being a singer, but she’s been working in a call centre for far too long. She’s separating from her husband, the father of her eighteen-month-old son. And she’s moving back home to her parents, toddler in tow.

      Life has thrown her a few lemons . . . but Martha intends to make a gin and tonic.

      It’s time to become the woman she’s always wanted to be. And at least her mum’s on hand to provide free childcare – along with ample motherly judgement, of course.

      But Martha’s attempts at reinvention – from writing a definitive, non-negotiable list of everything she’s looking for in a new man, to half-marathons, business plans and meditation retreats – tend to go awry in the most surprising of ways. And soon she comes to realise that in order to find lasting love, happiness and fulfilment, she needs to find herself first . . .

      Who said starting over was easy?

      A warm, vibrant and painfully funny novel that will strike a chord with anyone who’s ever had their heart broken, hasn’t quite got their sh*t together yet, or who finds themselves wide awake at 3am thinking, ‘How did I get here?’

      Description
      The perfect gift for the Spice Girls fan in your life!

      ‘Lauren Bravo is one of my very favourite writers.’ Dolly Alderton

      'A joyous and energetic celebration of girlhood, friendship and pop culture. If you have ever sung into the lid of a can of Impulse body spray, you need to read this.' Daisy Buchanan

      The words 'girl power' conjure vivid memories of short skirts and platform boots. But it wasn't just about the look, it was about feminism.

      The Spice Girls gave a generation their first glimpse of the power of friendship, of staying true to yourself, of sheer bloody-mindedness. And the girl power generation went on to kick-start a new conversation around gender equality.

      We may have grown up asking What Would the Spice Girls Do?, but their particular brand of feminism is as relevant today as it was twenty years ago – we still need that fun and fearlessness, we still need accessible and all-embracing equality… we still need a zig-a-zig-ah.

      ‘The Spice Girls’ arrival on the pop scene marked the gateway to a modern form of feminism, all dressed up as a riotously good time.’ Stylist

      As featured in Elle magazine's Best Feminist Gift Books
