Melville House News

“Provides useful, vigorously reported overviews of Mr. Trump’s life and career … Mr. Johnston, who has followed the real estate impresario for nearly three decades, offers a searing indictment of his business practices and creative accounting.” Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times, on The Making of Donald Trump

“David Cay Johnston has given us this year’s must-read Trump book.” —Lawrence O’Donnell, MSNBC’s The Last Word

“Fiercely brilliant, must-read…Doyle has dug deeply into the garbage that the media peddles about women…Doyle’s book moves the needle.”—Elle on Trainwreck

“A ruthlessly funny, smart, and relentlessly on-point takedown of modern misogyny….Doyle’s debut book places her on the A-list of contemporary feminist writers.”Publishers Weekly starred review of Trainwreck

“Doyle shows the way women in general have been, and very often still are, tried for their very womanness, devoured for their flaws, and respected only once they’ve been reduced to smoldering ash. High-speed and immediately readable, Doyle’s poignant take on the concept of the trainwreck, and its relation to feminism, will provoke much thought and discussion.”Booklist starred review of Trainwreck

“A quiet masterpiece. Combines the primal, raw, archetypal vision of José Saramago with the apocalyptic sweep of Cormac McCarthy … Wieringa’s prose is lucid as cut glass, his images stark, his landscape desolate and otherworldly at the same time that it is contemporary. His unalloyed depiction of emigration will reverberate keenly in a Europe facing ever growing numbers of exiles, evacuees, escapees of war. It will reverberate, as well, in a United States muddled by its own border policies…A magnum opus from a leading young writer takes on the meaning of exile, identity, faith, and the limits of endurance.”—Kirkus Reviews starred review of These Are the Names
