12 Great Summer Reads for 2019

AARP picks Sarah Valentine's WHEN I WAS WHITE as a top book for the summer! "Escape with 12 of the season's hottest page-turners: When I Was White: A Memoir. Valentine grew up in Pittsburgh in the 1960s and ‘70s, unaware that her father was African American. She writes frankly about how learning this fact as an adult turned her entire perception of herself upside down, as well as her view of race in America. She questions why her family and others felt the need to hide the truth and wrestles with her insecurities about whether she can ever be “authentically black.”

Nora Roberts and Anthony Horowitz are just a few of the authors with new books you should add to your summer reading list.

MJ for Texas

MJ for Texas

I had a great time speaking on NBC's Megyn Kelly TODAY about my experiences overcoming obstacles to achieve my dream of becoming a pilot, serving as a Medevac helicopter pilot in Afghanistan, and my role fighting to end the ban on women serving in ground combat roles in the military.

I have a proven track record of fighting for others, which is why I'm determined to continue serving my country and our community, this time, by running to represent my home district in Congress.

Another brilliant review for Elizabeth Tan's RUBIK!

Another brilliant review for Elizabeth Tan's RUBIK!

"Tan's debut novel is both a love letter to fandom and a sustained meditation on alienation, artificiality, and the sinister nature of capitalism. In this novel of interconnected narratives that mimics the shifting planes of a Rubik's Cube, characters appear and reappear in stories that pastiche various genres, from anime and video games to sci-fi thrillers and fan fiction."

Now that is a review! Thank you, Kirkus Reviews. Support exciting international literature and order Rubik by Australian author Elizabeth Tan at your local bookstore.

YES! The first review for 'Rubik' by Elizabeth Tan is in and it's a rave from Publishers Weekly!

"The disorienting effect of accreting, repeating details and unanswered questions makes the final cohesion of Tan’s only slightly fantastical Perth even more delicious. Tan’s careful layering and nuanced craft will gain a strong following among fans of experimental narratives." MacKenzie Wolf Publishers Group West

Are You Culturally Single?

This state of 'single' mindedness is not a 21st-century develop- ment. Joanna Scutts is the author of The Extra Woman, which traces the story of Marjorie Hillis, the author of a popular 1936 self-help book that sparked a movement of women who called themselves 'Live Aloners'. These glamorous women made their own choices and didn't live their lives according to other people's values or expectations of them.

http://www.elleuk.com/life-and-culture/longform/a39978/are-you-culturally-single/

You're in a relationship, but you're more 'fun singleton' than 'smug married'. Sound familiar? You're culturally single.

A Simple, Declarative Sentence ||| TriQuarterly | The Literary Review

"I used to think the phrase “write your heart out,” meant write until you’re worn out, like your heart might feel after running a long, fast race. I thought it meant, write until you collapse on your desk, exhausted. Now I understand it means something quite different: put your heart in words. Write it out. Write your heart out. First, find this heart of yours; sit still until you do. Not so easy a matter. Then feel your way around in it. What is the one thing in there you cannot, or dare not, say?" -- Bonnie Nadzam's astonishing TriQuarterly Online essay republished in The Literary Review

How Forgotten Trailblazer Marjorie Hillis Helped Women Live Alone

Despite the charming retro touches, like the insistence that any self-respecting Live-Aloner ought to own at least four styles of a mysterious garment called a “bed-jacket,” Marjorie Hillis’s philosophy struck me as almost painfully relevant to modern single women like me who were balancing the fantasy of independence with the fear of being alone. Joanna Scutts at Literary Hub: http://lithub.com/how-forgotten-trailblazer-marjorie-hillis-helped-women-live-alone/

Long before I read Virginia Woolf’s manifesto, my dreams of the future were creative and solitary. I had no fantasies about my wedding day, only about my writing place: a little garret overlooking …

The Forgotten Lifestyle Star Who Taught Women of the 1930s How to 'Live Alone and Like It'

" I think what was interesting was that Marjorie Hillis was suggesting that emotional labor that married women and women with families are expected to do—she was sort of saying you should also be doing that for yourself, because your happiness is also your responsibility. Even if you don’t have anyone else’s happiness to take care of, you should also be taking care of your own and trying to make yourself happy. And you’re just as deserving of happiness as a woman with a husband and children."

Bestsellers that are annoyingly ubiquitous one decade have a funny way of slipping out of the cultural consciousness over the next.
