"Get out, Emmanuel!" growled my uncle. "Take your brother and go." But where can two boys go when they're on their own, on the run, with little money or food? All 12-year-old Emmanuel knows is that he has to look after Prince. They were his father's last words to him. On the train to London, Em and Prince have no idea where they will end up - but then they meet the mysterious Mr Green and his "friends". And that's when things start to spin out of control...

More than just a history of Danko Jones, this book is an exploration of the rigid politics that govern both underground and mainstream music and how a band can succeed without pandering to either. Danko Jones may be a straightforward rock band, but their story is anything but. They're a band that has roots in many different music communities--the North American indie rock scene, the Scandinavian garage rock scene, and the European metal scene--but belong to none of them. They've toured with both Blonde Redhead and Nickelback and can attract intense fandom in one part of the world while being rejected in their home country. "Too Much Trouble" follows a 15-year saga that goes from college radio DJ booths to corporate boardrooms and from dingy after-hours bars to the biggest festival stages in Europe. It's a must-have for fans of Danko Jones or anyone interested in a behind-the-scenes look at how both the mainstream and underground music industries work.

The glittering lives of billionaires may seem like a harmless source of entertainment. But such concentrated economic power reverberates throughout society, threatening the quality of life and the very functioning of democracy. It's no accident that the United States claims the most billionaires—but suffers among the highest rates of infant mortality and crime, the shortest life expectancy, as well as the lowest rates of social mobility and electoral political participation in the developed world. Our society tends to regard large fortunes as evidence of great talent or accomplishment. Yet the vast new wealth isn't due to an increase in talent or effort at the top, but rather to changing social attitudes legitimizing greed and government policy changes that favour the new elite. Authoritative and eye-opening, The Trouble with Billionaires will spark debate about the kind of society we want.

My parents still believe that the three 'happenings' described in this book are a result of my overheated imagination and too much free time during the holidays. Meet Anirudh. A bored, neglected youngster to whom the strangest things happen. His 'quiet neighbours' in Big Neem include a crotchety-voiced neem tree, the Chota Bandar gang and Ambi, a pretty ghost with leopard eyes. Down the winding roads of Sonekote, zips a ghostly blood-red Jaguar. Along with Kavita and Cyclone Shaila, Anirudh must uncover the secrets of the misty, secluded hill-sides. Red Jaguar takes our hero on the most exciting ride of his life. High in the Himalayas, a bird of prey waits and watches as Mrs Samson and her troupe of five: Sangeeta, the bug freak; the brothers, Billy and Lokesh; Aarti, haunted by the death of her parents in the same silent mountains and Anirudh trek their way through the lonely landscape. Adventure, ghosts, and mystery await Anirudh and his strange friends in these three stories.

Turner Publishing is proud to present a new edition of Sandra Hochman's, Happiness Is Too Much Trouble First published by Putnam in 1976, Hochman's follow-up to Walking Papers is the story of a unique woman told by a unique voice in American literature. From the Putman edition: Who took over where Louis B. Mayer left off? A new kind of woman: Lulu. Lulu Cartwright is a troublemaker on a pilgrimage to save souls. One morning she wakes up and finds that she has been named head of the world's largest film studio. This powerful job is hers by a freak of computerized technology and ironic justice. As Lulu describes herself, she is the "unbroken token." She is also wise, frightened, funny, and sexually vulnerable. Throughout the novel we follow Lulu from her moment of triumph back into her thoughts and memories. We meet her old lovers, husbands; we meet her parents, her childhood friends, her child; but most important of all, we meet Dumbo--a hustler and a stud. We watch Dumbo change from an out-of-work extra into Lulus "wife" and finally into an entrepreneur in the foot business. Through Lulu s eyes we put together the puzzle of her love for Dumbo. Dumbo is alive with contradictions, devotions, and a desire to heal soles. Dumbo, as perceived by Lulu, is the new hero, a stud-savior. We also enter, with Lulu, through the computerized portals of the new Hollywood. We encounter the movieland of executives who never see films, the Hollywood of consultants, accountants, and frightened corporation men who have to deliver image and product in order to satisfy stockholders. On the way to the top, Lulu Cartwright finds herself in bed with Machiavellis, losers, and vibrators. Lulu is the kind of woman who manages to change the system, not merely be victimized by it. Happiness Is Too Much Trouble is the story, past and present, of a woman who is finally, and against all odds, a winner. Lulu, by an accident of history, is forced to give up happiness and settle instead for fame, fortune, power. What makes her different is that she loves every minute of it. And so will you.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * NATIONAL BOOK AWARD LONGLIST * "A feminist jeremiad nested inside a brilliant comic novel--a book that makes you laugh so hard you don't notice till later that your eyebrows have been singed off."--Ron Charles, The Washington Post FINALIST FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE'S JOHN LEONARD PRIZE FOR BEST FIRST BOOK * NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY AND THE NEW YORK PUBLIC LIBRARY AND ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review * Time * The Washington Post * Vanity Fair * Vogue * NPR * Chicago Tribune * GQ * Vox * Refinery29 * Elle * The Guardian * Real Simple * Parade * Good Housekeeping * Marie Claire * Town & Country * Evening Standard * Kirkus Reviews * BookPage * BookRiot * Shelf Awareness A finely observed, timely exploration of marriage, divorce, and the bewildering dynamics of ambition from one of the most exciting writers working today Toby Fleishman thought he knew what to expect when he and his wife of almost fifteen years separated: weekends and every other holiday with the kids, some residual bitterness, the occasional moment of tension in their co-parenting negotiations. He could not have predicted that one day, in the middle of his summer of sexual emancipation, Rachel would just drop their two children off at his place and simply not return. He had been working so hard to find equilibrium in his single life. The winds of his optimism, long dormant, had finally begun to pick up. Now this. As Toby tries to figure out where Rachel went, all while juggling his patients at the hospital, his never-ending parental duties, and his new app-assisted sexual popularity, his tidy narrative of the spurned husband with the too-ambitious wife is his sole consolation. But if Toby ever wants to truly understand what happened to Rachel and what happened to his marriage, he is going to have to consider that he might not have seen things all that clearly in the first place. A searing, utterly unvarnished debut, Fleishman Is in Trouble is an insightful, unsettling, often hilarious exploration of a culture trying to navigate the fault lines of an institution that has proven to be worthy of our great wariness and our great hope. Alma's Best Jewish Novel of the Year "Blisteringly funny, feverishly smart, heartbreaking, and true, Fleishman Is in Trouble is an essential read for anyone who's wondered how to navigate loving (and hating) the people we choose."--Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney, author of The Nest "From its opening pages, Fleishman Is in Trouble is shrewdly observed, brimming with wisdom, and utterly of this moment. Not until its explosive final pages are you fully aware of its cunning ferocity. Taffy Brodesser-Akner's debut is that rare and delicious treat: a page-turner with heft."--Maria Semple

From a helicopter high above the empty California desert, a man is sent free-falling into the night…. In Chicago, a woman learns that an elite team of ex–army investigators is being hunted down one by one.... And on the streets of Portland, Jack Reacher—soldier, cop, hero—is pulled out of his wandering life by a code that few other people could understand. From the first shocking scenes in Lee Child’s explosive new novel, Jack Reacher is plunged like a knife into the heart of a conspiracy that is killing old friends…and is on its way to something even worse. A decade postmilitary, Reacher has an ATM card and the clothes on his back—no phone, no ties, and no address. But now a woman from his old unit has done the impossible. From Chicago, Frances Neagley finds Reacher, using a signal only the eight members of their elite team of army investigators would know. She tells him a terrifying story—about the brutal death of a man they both served with. Soon Reacher is reuniting with the survivors of his old team, scrambling to raise the living, bury the dead, and connect the dots in a mystery that is growing darker by the day. The deeper they dig, the more they don’ t know: about two other comrades who have suddenly gone missing—and a trail that leads into the neon of Vegas and the darkness of international terrorism. For now, Reacher can only react. To every sound. Every suspicion. Every scent and every moment. Then Reacher will trust the people he once trusted with his life—and take this thing all the way to the end. Because in a world of bad luck and trouble, when someone targets Jack Reacher and his team, they’d better be ready for what comes right back at them… BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Lee Child’s Blue Moon.
