Nonfiction Book Review: We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast by Jonathan Safran Foer. Farrar, Straus and Giroux, $24 (288p) ISBN 978-0-374-28000-0

“In an unconventional but persuasive manner, novelist Foer (HERE I AM) explains why taking meaningful action to mitigate climate change is both incredibly simple and terribly difficult. Writing from an intensely personal perspective, he describes the difference between understanding and believing, making clear that only the latter can motivate meaningful action . . . Foer’s message is both moving and painful, depressing and optimistic, and it will force readers to rethink their commitment to combating ‘the greatest crisis humankind has ever faced.’”

Jennine Capó Crucet and Post-Trump Latinx Literature - Los Angeles Review of Books

“Remarkable . . . an interrogation of the American Dream, of American myths, and the whiteness that undergirds it all. MY TIME AMONG THE WHITES is also a thoughtful exploration of what it means to be a first-generation college student, a child of immigrants, and a professor to boot . . . An exploration of what it means to be Latinx in the time of Trump."

Chia-Chia Lin’s Haunting Immigrant Novel

"These gaps in a family story are the secrets that one is initiated into only when much older. The Unpassing, Chia-Chia Lin’s debut novel, is concerned with those empty spaces. Narrated by Gavin, a slight, nervous 10-year-old, the second-eldest child in a Taiwanese immigrant family living in rural Alaska, The Unpassing illuminates these unspoken, shadowy moments of childhood."

"A passionately argued rejection of closed borders. Humanizing the current exodus from the Global South, Mehta portrays individual migrants and shows how inextricable their journeys are from the political, economic, and ecological consequences of colonialism, global capitalism, and cheap fossil fuel."

Staff Picks: Peonies, Poetry, and Passing Things

"Though THE TOPEKA SCHOOL is heavily steeped in mid-90’s American liberalism and home phone lines, Lerner plots history with a contemporary eye to reconcile where we were then with where we stand now. It’s rare to find a book that is simultaneously searing in its social critique and so lush in its prose that it verges on poetry."

The Paris Review selects Ben Lerner 's new novel, THE TOPEKA SCHOOL (available Oct. 2019), as one of their Staff Picks.

Educators—we are thrilled to announce that Metropolitan Books will publish Edel Rodriguez's graphic memoir in 2021! We cannot wait to share this inspiring and important book with you.

https://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/industry-news/book-deals/article/80671-book-deals-week-of-july-15-2019.html

I’m very happy to share that my memoir has been acquired by Metropolitan Books/Macmillan. The book will be a fully illustrated graphic memoir. It will delve into my childhood in Cuba during the Cold War, my family’s migration to the United States, and my work as an artist in today’s America. From Publishers Weekly: Cuban-American artist Edel Rodriguez sold a graphic memoir, at auction, to Riva Hocherman at Metropolitan Books. Hocherman took North American rights, to ‘Worm’ from agent Holly McGhee at Pippin Properties. The book is slated for publication in 2021.

‘The British Are Coming’ Review: History as Enchantment

"The narrative is the stuff of novels, [but] Mr. Atkinson’s facts are drawn from a wealth of manuscript and printed sources. He quotes aptly and with acumen . . . Mr. Atkinson weaves it all together seamlessly, bringing us with him. Pithy character sketches—reminiscent of 18th-century historians David Hume and Edward Gibbon, both of whom Mr. Atkinson cites—bring the dead to life.”

"One lesson of THE BRITISH ARE COMING is the history-shaping power of individuals exercising their agency together: the volition of those who shouldered muskets in opposition to an empire . . . The more that Americans are reminded by Atkinson and other supreme practitioners of the historians’ craft that their nation was not made by flimsy people, the less likely it is to be flimsy."

Opinion | My Stutter Made Me a Better Writer

"Stuttering is a violent incantation that can break open normal conversation. What happens in that breach is up to the stutterer and her listener . . . The central irony of my life remains that my stutter, which at times caused so much suffering, is also responsible for my obsession with language. Without it I would not have been driven to write, to create rhythmic sentences easier to speak and to read. A fascination with words thrust me into a vocation that has kept me aflame with a desire to communicate."

FLASH COUNT DIARY author Darcey Steinke writes for The New York Times Opinion Section.

At times it caused suffering, but it also gave me a passion for words and language.
