Drop-In Alert: FREE, MELANIA

On December 3, 2019, Flatiron Books will publish the first behind-the-scenes look at the life of the most enigmatic First Lady in U.S. history, FREE, MELANIA by CNN reporter Kate Bennett.

Melania Trump is an enigma. Regardless of your political leanings, she is fascinating–a First Lady who, in many ways, is the most modern and groundbreaking in recent history. A former model whose beauty in person leaves people breathless, a woman whose upbringing in a communist country spurred a relentless drive for stability, both for herself and for her family. A reluctant pillar in a controversial presidential administration who speaks five languages and runs the East Wing like none of her predecessors ever could–underestimate her at your own peril (as a former government official did and was summarily fired). But who is she really?

News Flash! 10 MINUTES 38 SECONDS IN THIS STRANGE WORLD Moves to December 2019

Originally scheduled for Spring 2020, Elif Shafak’s Man Booker Prize Longlister 10 MINUTES 38 SECONDS IN THIS STRANGE WORLD will now publish December 3, 2019.

In the pulsating moments after she has been murdered and left in a dumpster outside Istanbul, Tequila Leila enters a state of heightened awareness. While the Turkish sun rises above her and her friends asleep soundly nearby, she contemplates her mortal existence before eternal rest.

Tequila Leila’s memories bring us back to her childhood in the provinces, a highly oppressive milieu where a loving mother is no match for a strict, unforgiving father. Escaping to Istanbul, Leila makes her way into the sordid industry of sex trafficking, finding a home in the city’s historic Street of Brothels. This is a dark, violent world, but Leila is tough and open to beauty, light, and the essential bonds of friendship.

In Tequila Leila’s death, the secrets and wonders of modern Istanbul come to life, painted vividly by the captivating tales of how Leila came to know and be loved by her friends. As her epic journey to the afterlife comes to an end, it is they who bring her story to a buoyant and breathtaking conclusion.

Red-Hot Drop-In Alert: Edward Snowden’s Memoir PERMANENT RECORD

On September 17, 2019, Metropolitan Books will publish Edward Snowden’s memoir, PERMANENT RECORD.

Edward Snowden, the man who risked everything to expose the US government’s system of mass surveillance, reveals for the first time the story of his life, including how he helped to build that system and what motivated him to try to bring it down.

In 2013, twenty-nine-year-old Edward Snowden shocked the world when he broke with the American intelligence establishment and revealed that the United States government was secretly pursuing the means to collect every single phone call, text message, and email. The result would be an unprecedented system of mass surveillance with the ability to pry into the private lives of every person on earth. Six years later, Snowden reveals for the very first time how he helped to build this system and why he was moved to expose it.

Spanning the bucolic Beltway suburbs of his childhood and the clandestine CIA and NSA postings of his adulthood, PERMANENT RECORD is the extraordinary account of a bright young man who grew up online—a man who became a spy, a whistleblower, and, in exile, the Internet’s conscience. Written with wit, grace, passion, and an unflinching candor, PERMANENT RECORD is a crucial memoir of our digital age and destined to be a classic.

Red-Hot Fall 2019 Drop-In Alert: JAY-Z: Made in America by Michael Eric Dyson

From the New York Times bestselling author of TEARS WE CANNOT STOP and WHAT TRUTH SOUNDS LIKE comes JAY-Z: Made in America, a powerful examination of JAY-Z as a cultural icon, published for his 50th birthday.

JAY-Z is America at its scrappy, brash, irreverent, soulful, ingenious best: as transcendent a cultural icon as Frank Sinatra, as adventurous a self-made billionaire as Mark Zuckerberg, as gifted a poet as Walt Whitman. As he reaches the half-century mark, logs thirty years as a recording artist, becomes the genre’s first billionaire, reigns as an elder statesman in a field teeming with artists half his age, and continues to make relevant rap records that chart—and that chart an artistic and political response to revived racism and renewed hostility to blackness—it is an auspicious time to examine JAY-Z’s ideas, gifts and impact, to take measure of his stride as a cultural colossus. And there is no one better suited to the task than Michael Eric Dyson, who has investigated and championed hip hop, and the work of JAY-Z, as a critical American art form, for decades.

JAY-Z: Made in America goes on sale November 26, 2019 from St. Martin’s Press.

Also available in audio.

Michael Wolff Returns June 4th!

The secret is out! The highly confidential Summer 2019 drop-in is finally revealed as SIEGE: Trump Under Fire, Michael Wolff’s explosive follow-up to FIRE AND FURY! More information in the official release memo below:


NEW YORK, May 15, 2019–Henry Holt will publish Michael Wolff’s new book SIEGE: Trump Under Fire on June 4, it was announced today. Wolff is the author of the number-one international bestseller FIRE AND FURY: Inside the Trump White House, widely considered the first book to reveal the inner workings of the most controversial presidency in American history. Stephen Rubin, Holt’s Chairman, bought the book from Andrew Wylie of The Wylie Agency. John Sterling, the editor of FIRE AND FURY, will edit the new book. The book is embargoed until publication.

With FIRE AND FURY, Wolff defined the first phase of the Trump administration; now, in SIEGE, he has written an equally essential and explosive book about a presidency that is under fire from almost every side. A stunningly fresh narrative that begins just as Trump’s second year as president is getting underway, and ends with the delivery of the Mueller report, SIEGE reveals an administration that is perpetually beleaguered by investigations and a president who is increasingly volatile, erratic, and exposed.

Michael Wolff is the author of FIRE AND FURY, the number-one bestseller that for the first time told the inside story of the Trump White House. He has received numerous awards for his work, including two National Magazine Awards. The author of seven previous books, he has been a regular columnist for Vanity Fair, New York, The Hollywood Reporter, British GQ, and other magazines and newspapers. He lives in Manhattan and has four children.

Drop-In Alert: TOUCHED BY THE SUN by Carly Simon

Music lovers! Jackie O lovers! Female friendship lovers! FSG will be publishing Carly Simon’s new memoir, TOUCHED BY THE SUN, this Fall, detailing an ordinary friendship between two extraordinary women.

A chance encounter at a summer party on Martha’s Vineyard blossomed into an improbable but enduring friendship. Carly Simon and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis made an unlikely pair—Carly, a free and artistic spirit still reeling from her recent divorce, searching for meaning, new love, and an anchor; and Jackie, one of the most celebrated, meticulous, unknowable women in American history. Nonetheless, over the next decade their lives merged in inextricable and complex ways, and they forged a connection deeper than either could ever have foreseen. The time they spent together—lingering lunches and creative collaborations, nights out on the town and movie dates—brought a welcome lightness and comfort to their days, but their conversations often veered into more profound territory as they helped each other navigate the shifting waters of life lived, publicly, in the wake of great love and great loss.

Red Hot Drop-In Alert: THE THREAT

Just when you thought Fall 2018 Drop-In titles were getting Stormy, there’s another: THE THREAT: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump by former FBI Deputy Director, Andrew G. McCabe, available February 12, 2019* from St. Martin’s Press and Macmillan Audio.

On March 16, 2018, just 26 hours before his scheduled retirement from the organization he had served with distinction for nearly 22 years, and after sustained and unprecedented public attacks from the President of the United States, Andrew McCabe was fired from his position as Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Now in THE THREAT, McCabe will share a candid account of his career and an impassioned defense of the FBI’s agents, integrity, and independence in protecting America and upholding our Constitution.

McCabe says, “I wrote this book because the president’s attacks on me symbolize his destructive effect on the country as a whole. He is undermining America’s safety and security, and eroding public confidence in its institutions. His attacks on the most crucial institutions of government, and on the professionals who serve within them, should make every American stand up and take notice.”

Full Disclosure: WE’RE PUBLISHING STORMY DANIELS!!

**In our best movie-announcer voice**

From the company that brought you Michael Wolff’s FIRE AND FURY and James Comey’s A HIGHER LOYALTY comes…
FULL DISCLOSURE, a memoir by Stormy Daniels, available October 2, 2018 from St. Martin’s Press and Macmillan Audio!

She was already well-known in some circles before March 6, 2018, but that’s probably the first time you heard the name Stormy Daniels. That’s the day she filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump over a nondisclosure agreement negotiated before the election but never signed.

In FULL DISCLOSURE, Stormy Daniels shares everything about how she came to be a leading actress and director in the adult film business, the full truth about her journey from a rough childhood in Louisiana onto the national stage, and the events that led to the nondisclosure agreement and the behind-the-scenes attempts to intimidate her.

“I own my story and the choices I made,” she writes. “They may not be the ones you would have made, but I stand by them.” readmoreremove
