March is here and so are these new titles! 📚 Sarah Moss is back! THE FELL is a riveting novel of mutual responsibility, personal freedom, and the ever-nearness of disaster. Suspenseful, witty, and wise, it asks probing questions about how close so many live to the edge and about who we are in the world, who we are to our neighbors, and who we become when the world demands we shut ourselves away. 🏃"Pankaj Mishra transforms a visceral, intimate story of one man’s humble origins into a kaleidoscopic portrait of a society bedazzled by power and wealth—what it means on a human level, and what it costs. Run and Hide is a spectacular, illuminating work of fiction." (Jennifer Egan, author of #ManhattanBeach). RUN AND HIDE is Pankaj Mishra’s story of a changing country and global order, and the inequities of class and gender that map onto our most intimate relationships. 🗳️ From Michael Kazin, WHAT IT TOOK TO WIN: A HISTORY OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY tells the story of the United States’ most enduring political party and its long, imperfect and newly invigorated quest for “moral capitalism,” from Andrew Jackson to Joseph Biden. ✍️ Also new today in #nonfiction, is THE GREATEST INVENTION by Silvia Ferrara a translated from the Italian by Todd Portnowitz. In this exhilarating celebration of human ingenuity and perseverance—published all around the world—a trailblazing Italian scholar sifts through our cultural and social behavior in search of the origins of our greatest invention: writing. 💚 And from MCD x FSG, THE DOLORIAD is a macabre, provocative, depraved, and unforgettable novel that marks the debut of Missouri Williams, a terrifyingly original new voice.

LIFE BETWEEN THE TIDES is out today! 🦀🐚🦐 Adam Nicolson explores the marine life inhabiting seashore rockpools with a scientist’s curiosity and a poet’s wonder in this beautifully illustrated book. “The sea is not made of water. Creatures are its genes. Look down as you crouch over the shallows and you will find a periwinkle or a prawn, a claw-displaying crab or a cluster of anemones ready to meet you. No need for binoculars or special stalking skills: go to the rocks and the living will say hello.” 🎨Jacket by June Park

FSG mourns the death of Dr. Paul Farmer, one of the great thinkers and doers of our time. In the institutions he helped build and in his tireless advocacy for a world where the prospects for health and human flourishing are truly equal, he enhanced countless lives around the world. And in his forceful, eloquent writing, he transformed his vision of public health into a public testament. We are grateful to have known him and proud to have published his book on Ebola and the ravages of history.

Happy publication day to PURE COLOUR by Sheila Heti, JENA 1800 by Peter Neumann, and TRUE STORY by Danielle J. Lindemann! 🍃 PURE COLOUR is a galaxy of a novel, taking place in the first draft of Creation, which was made by some great artist, who is now getting ready to tear it apart. Sheila Heti is a philosopher of modern experience, and she has reimagined what a book can hold. 📺 What do we see when we watch reality television? TRUE STORY is a sociological study of reality TV that explores its rise as a culture-dominating medium—and what the genre reveals about our attitudes toward race, gender, class, and sexuality. Lindemann holds up a mirror to our society: the reflection may not always be pretty—but we can’t look away. ✨ And in JENA 1800, an award-winning poet and philosopher reveals the history of the German idealist oasis where discussions of revolution, literature, beliefs, romance, and concepts gave birth to the modern world. With wit and elegance, Peter Neumann brings this remarkable circle of friends and rivals to life in a work of intellectual history that is colorful and passionate, informative and intimate—as fresh and full of surprises as its subjects. Happy reading! 🎨 PURE COLOUR jacket design by Na Kim with artwork by #EllsworthKelly, TRUE STORY jacket design by EvaKate Gabrielsen and JENA 1800 jacket design by Alison Forner

Kick off February with these new releases! 📚 Happy publication day to EATING TO EXTINCTION by Dan Saladino, DILLA TIME by Dan Charnas, THEN THE WAR by Carl Phillips, and STRING FOLLOW by Simon Jacobs! 🍲 Dan Saladino's EATING TO EXTINCTION is the prominent broadcaster’s pathbreaking tour of the world’s vanishing foods and his argument for why they matter now more than ever. From an Indigenous American chef refining precolonial recipes to farmers tending Geechee red peas on the Sea Islands of Georgia, the individuals profiled in this book are essential guides to treasured foods and provide a roadmap to a food system that is healthier, more robust, and, above all, richer in flavor and meaning. 🎶 Equal parts biography, musicology, and cultural history, DILLA TIME chronicles the life and legacy of J Dilla, a musical genius who transformed the sound of popular music for the twenty-first century. From MCD x FSG this is the story of the man and his machines, his family, friends, partners, and celebrity collaborators. 📖 THEN THE WAR is a new collection of poems from one of America’s most essential, celebrated, and enduring poets, Carl Phillips. This collection is luminous testimony to the power of self-reckoning and to Phillips as an ever-changing, necessary voice in contemporary poetry. 🧵 And from FSG Originals, STRING FOLLOW is a darkly comic suburban Gothic about a malevolent force that targets a group of Ohio misfits, harnessing their angst for its sinister designs. Simon Jacobs blends the startlingly original and the uncannily familiar, revealing the dark chaos that lurks beneath the surface of Midwestern suburbia.

Cover reveal! Coming June 2022, the award-winning author of #TheButcheringArt presents the compelling, true story of a visionary surgeon who rebuilt the faces of the First World War’s injured heroes, and in the process ushered in the modern era of plastic surgery. Cover design by Teal Cartoons.

It is with great pride, and not a little trepidation, that I can reveal both the US (left) and UK (right) COVERS of #TheFacemaker - the harrowing tale of the surgeon Harold Gillies and the soldiers whose faces he rebuilt during #WWI. The book will be released in both countries on June 7th.

Each publisher comes up with their own design, and it is always a thrill to see how my stories are interpreted.In the case of the US cover, my husband Teal Cartoons came up with the concept. It pays homage to Harold Gillies's famous book, The Principles and Art of Plastic Surgery (photo in comments). I think you'll agree: both covers are brilliant and capture the essence of this tale, which is not only about one man, but about many men.

As many of you know, I've been working on this book for the last five years. It has been a huge undertaking, and my only hope is that I have done these men justice in the retelling of their stories. Pre-orders are vital to the success of a book, and I would be grateful for your support. Links below, including how to pre-order SIGNED COPIES should you want one. I can't wait to share with you what I've learned!
