Funny, sad, full of wonderful characters and the word-­perfect dialogue of which he is the master, McMurtry brings the Thalia saga to an end with Duane confronting depression in the midst of plenty. Surrounded by his children, who all seem to be going through life crises involving sex, drugs, and violence; his wife, Karla, who is wrestling with her own demons; and friends like Sonny, who seem to be dying, Duane can't seem to make sense of his life anymore. He gradually makes his way through a protracted end-­of-­life crisis of which he is finally cured by reading Proust's Remembrance of Things Past, a combination of penance and prescription from Dr. Carmichael that somehow works.
Duane's Depressed is the work of a powerful, mature artist, with a deep understanding of the human condition, a profound ability to write about small-­town life, and perhaps the surest touch of any American novelist for the tangled feelings that bind and separate men and women.

From the widely praised author of Secret Son and Hope and Other Dangerous Pursuits—a stunning piece of historical fiction: the imagined memoirs of the New World’s first explorer of African descent, a Moroccan slave known as Estebanico.

In 1527, Pánfilo de Narváez sailed from Spain with a crew of six hundred men, intending to claim for the Spanish crown what is now the Gulf Coast of the United States. But from the moment the expedition reached Florida, it met with ceaseless bad luck—storms, disease, starvation, hostile natives—and within a year there were only four survivors, including the young explorer Andrés Dorantes and his slave, Estebanico. After six years of enslavement by Native Americans, the four men escaped and wandered through what is now Florida, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. The Moor’s Account brilliantly captures Estebanico’s voice and vision, giving us an alternate narrative for this famed expedition. As this dramatic chronicle unfolds, we come to understand . . .

An expat's witty and insightful exploration of English and American cultural differences through the lens of language that will leave readers gobsmacked In That's Not English, the seemingly superficial differences between British and American English open the door to a deeper exploration of a historic and fascinating cultural divide. In each of the thirty chapters, Erin Moore explains a different word we use that says more about us than we think. For example, "Quite" exposes the tension between English reserve and American enthusiasm; in "Moreish,­" she addresses our snacking habits. In "Partner,­" she examines marriage equality; in "Pull,­" the theme is dating and sex; "Cheers" is about drinking; and "Knackered" covers how we raise our kids. The result is a cultural history in miniature and an expatriate's survival guide. American by birth, Moore is a former book editor who specialized in spotting British books—including Eats, Shoots &...

Two classic science fiction stories about a California family fleeing a nuclear holocaust, written in an era when a dystopian future seemed inevitable.
An atomic bomb has struck Los Angeles, and the streets are filled with cars fleeing the city. But Mr. Jimmon knows that things will be different for his family. He has meticulously prepared for such an event, and now that it has arrived, he carries out his plan almost gleefully.

But in reality, there is no guarantee of escape—­or survival.

Savage, unromantic, and unflinchingly honest, these two dark tales by "one of the best American writers,­" describe what could really happen at the end of the world, and...
