A BEA 2015 Editor’s Buzz Panel Selection! Memoir at its finest: beautifully composed, firmly anchored to a larger world, engaging, accessible, and profound. “Tweedy, an African American psychiatrist at Duke University, expertly weaves together statistics, personal anecdotes, and patient stories to explain why ‘being black can be bad for your health.’ In all, a smart, thought-provoking, frontline look at race and medicine.” — Booklist, starred review

HOME IS BURNING by Dan Marshall
A BEA 2015 Editor’s Buzz Panel Selection! This hilarious, profane, and heartbreaking story of a madcap family’s struggles with catastrophic illness had us laughing out loud and quietly crying on all kinds of public transportation. “Horrible. Hysterical. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Just like life.” — Jenny Lawson, #1 bestselling author of Let’s Pretend This Never Happened (and the forthcoming FURIOUSLY HAPPY)

by Anna McPartlin

A poignant and ultimately uplifting novel that traces the final decline of a feisty 40-year-old single mom whose seemingly ordinary life is filled with extraordinary people. “McPartlin very effectively captures a family during a traumatic moment. The novel is kept light with a measure of dry humor and many beautiful instances of love, leaving a lighter impression than one might expect. This novel will be torn from the shelves by fans of tearjerkers such as P.S. I LOVE YOU.” — Publishers Weekly

THE LAST PILOT by Benjamin Johncock
Spare yet emotionally resonant dialogue drives this haunting story of one man’s quest to become an astronaut during America’s post-World War II Space Race. “A marvelous, emotionally powerful novel.” — *Publishers Weekly, starred & boxed review
