Friday Reads: Flatiron Books

TGIF! Our #FridayReads picks are two new titles from Flatiron Books:

IRRITABLE HEARTS by Mac McClelland
This fearless memoir by an award-winning journalist exploring her struggle with PTSD, its troubled history and treatment, and the ways she pushed herself beyond trauma to fall in love, is receiving terrific press from the New York Times Book Review, Elle Magazine, The Millions, and more.

“What makes IRRITABLE HEARTS powerful and useful, though, is the idea of living in brokenness and imperfection, rather than dashing yourself against them.” — The Washington Post

A KIM JONG-IL PRODUCTION: The Extraordinary True Story of a Kidnapped Filmmaker, His Star Actress, and a Young Dictator’s Rise to Power by Paul Fischer
“Fischer recounts with vim and precision the astounding details of [actress Choi Eun-ee and director Shin Sang-Ok’s] kidnappings, long solitary incarcerations, surprise reunion, perpetual surveillance, and coercion into making films that did, indeed, win prestigious awards, until their audacious escape. Gripping and revelatory, Fischer’s true-life thriller provides a portal into the mad tyranny of North Korea.”

Flatiron Books’ first list of seven titles is set for Winter 2015, although they do have one major Fall 2014 title: WHAT I KNOW FOR SURE by Oprah Winfrey. When the imprint gets up to full speed, it’ll publish five to six books every month, a range of nonfiction (including cookbooks) and fiction with Amy Einhorn as publisher.

“We’re looking for distinctive ideas from unique voices,” Miller said, and emphasized that the staff will select books they feel passionate about. Einhorn said that Flatiron’s fiction will feature authors who are “wonderful writers and incredible storytellers” in all areas from literary and commercial fiction to young adult crossover.
