From the Pulitzer Prize winning author of Crimes of the Heart comes this poignant but unromanticized story of the hard lives of pioneers on the high plains of Wyoming in the 1860s. Macon and Bess are two mail-order brides, lured to the West by the promise of new beginnings through marriage to men they've never met. While waiting for their respective husbands-to-be, one bubbling with optimism, the other mousy and plain, the two women become instant best friends.As Abundance follows the two women through their friendship and adventures for the next 25 years, this Western epic unearths the dark underside of American mythology. 1.

A wide-ranging history of seventy years of change in political media, and how it transformed -- and fractured -- American politicsWith fake news on Facebook, trolls on Twitter, and viral outrage everywhere, it's easy to believe that the internet changed politics entirely. In Political Junkies, historian Claire Bond Potter shows otherwise, revealing the roots of today's dysfunction by situating online politics in a longer history of alternative political media. From independent newsletters in the 1950s to talk radio in the 1970s to cable television in the 1980s, pioneers on the left and right developed alternative media outlets that made politics more popular, and ultimately, more partisan. When campaign operatives took up e-mail, blogging, and social media, they only supercharged these trends. At a time when political engagement has never been greater and trust has never been lower, Political Junkies is essential reading for understanding how we got here.
Shirley Jackson was born in California in 1916. When her short story The Lottery was first published in The New Yorker in 1948, readers were so horrified they sent her hate mail; it has since become one of the most iconic American stories of all time. Her first novel, The Road Through the Wall, was published in the same year and was followed by five more: Hangsaman, The Bird's Nest, The Sundial, The Haunting of Hill House and We Have Always Lived in the Castle, widely seen as her masterpiece. In addition to her dark, brilliant novels, she wrote lightly fictionalized magazine pieces about family life with her four children and her husband, the critic Stanley Edgar Hyman. Shirley Jackson died in her sleep in 1965 at the age of 48.

His hen-pecking wife constantly hassles him about finding a job, which only exasperates his excessive gambling. At his wit's end, Bobby finds an anonymous letter in the mail. It's full of cash. A cryptic letter alludes to the cash as payment for a murder. Bobby didn't commit the crime, but he takes the money anyway and blows it at the sportsbook.

The final novel in the dazzling Last Hundred Years trilogy, from the winner of the Pulitzer Prize 1987. A visit from a long-lost relative brings the Langdons together again on the family farm; a place almost unrecognizable from the remote Iowan farmland Walter and Rosanna once owned. As a new era dawns, the family must face challenges unlike anything their ancestors encountered. Richie Langdon, finally out from under his twin brother's shadow, finds himself running for congress almost unintentionally and completely underprepared. Jesse's son Guthrie is set to take over the family farm but is deployed to Iraq, leaving the land in the hands of his younger sister, Felicity. She must defend it from more than just the extremes of climate change. Moving through the 1990s, to our own moment and beyond, Golden Age brings to a magnificent conclusion the century-long portrait of one unforgettable family. 'With the Last One Hundred Years trilogy, Smiley surely confirms her place alongside Roth, Updike and Bellow as one of the truly great chroniclers of twentieth-century American life' Observer 'Magnificent' Daily Mail
