Smart. Ambitious. Curious. Guilty of a need to please. Determined.

These are the words Kate White used to describe the main character in her upcoming novel THE SECOND HUSBAND.

A woman’s seemingly perfect second marriage is rocked by a discovery about the death of her first husband in this twisty psychological thriller.

🎧 New Podcast Episode - Editors Unedited: Emily Griffin interviews Jillian Medoff, author of WHEN WE WERE BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL

There has been so much love around the HarperCollins office for Jillian Medoff's WHEN WE WERE BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL. We were so excited to be able to feature a podcast episode with the acclaimed author of THIS COULD HURT and her editor at Harper Books. She returns with WHEN WE WERE BRIGHT AND BEAUTIFUL, her biggest, boldest novel yet—an electrifying, twisty, and deeply emotional family drama, set on Manhattan’s glittering Upper East Side, that explores the dark side of love, the limits of loyalty, and the high cost of truth.

🎧 New Podcast Episode!

Librarian Becky Spratford interviews Paul Tremblay, author of THE PALLBEARERS CLUB

We are so excited to share a new podcast episode between Readers' Advisor Becky Spratford and beloved author Paul Tremblay about his upcoming book, THE PALLBEARERS CLUB—a cleverly voiced psychological thriller about an unforgettable—and unsettling—friendship, with blood-chilling twists, crackling wit, and a thrumming pulse in its veins.

Becky reviewed THE PALLBEARERS CLUB for Booklist, giving it a STARRED review!

"In his brilliant new novel, Tremblay takes on the well-mined small-town, coming-of-age horror trope, transforming it into something so original, it elevates the entire genre."

Seirian Sumner's ENDLESS FORMS is an eye-opening and entertaining work of popular science in which a leading behavioral ecologist transforms our understanding of wasps, exploring these much-maligned insects’ secret world, their incredible diversity and complex social lives, and revealing how they hold our fragile ecosystem in balance.

Check out all of the rave reviews coming in for ENDLESS FORMS:

“Wasps, in all their endless forms, are not the annoying monsters we often believe them to be. Instead they are fascinating foundations of entire ecosystems, and essential to our lives. Sumner’s tale is thrilling, warm, and scholarly in equal measure, and brilliantly repairs the reputation of wasps—most beautiful and wonderful as they truly are.”
—Adam Rutherford, author of A BRIEF HISTORY OF EVERYONE WHO EVER LIVED

"A wasp admirer makes a delightful case for their importance.”
—Kirkus Reviews ⭐️ review

“[Sumner’s] passion for wasps and their global importance as both predators and pollinators is compelling…This interesting and entertaining work is sure to leave readers buzzing.”
—Booklist

If what I came to do worked out as great and glorious as the Russian Revolution once purported itself, our company would have replanted the egalitarian hammer and sickle symbol through the misplaced ideal of capitalism from the bottom up. Our messenger service would have rethread the vision on economic principle, so to speak.

Yesterday on Door to Door we featured two magnificent mystery authors: Wanda M. Morris, author of ALL HER LITTLE SECRETS (the HarperCollins Lead Read for Fall '21), and Lori Rader-Day, author of DEATH AT GREENWAY! It was so cool to hear them chat with each other because Lori actually taught Wanda at the Yale Writers' Workshop! They even had hats to 'rep the program. Check out the screenshot below!
