New Releases

FICTION & NONFICTION

  • In THE COOKING GENE, a renowned culinary historian offers a fresh perspective on our most divisive cultural issue, race, in this illuminating memoir of Southern cuisine and food culture that traces his ancestry—both black and white—through food, from Africa to America and slavery to freedom…
  • As the twentieth century draws to a close, Maria is at the start of a life she never thought possible. She and Khalil, her college sweetheart, are planning their wedding. They are the perfect couple; they’ve even landed a starring role in a documentary about “NEW PEOPLE” like them, who are blurring the old boundaries as a brave new era dawns. Everything Maria knows she should want lies before her–yet she can’t stop daydreaming about another man, a poet she barely knows…
  • At seventy-two, Johnny Ribkins shouldn’t have such problems: He’s got one week to come up with the money he stole from his mobster boss or it’s curtains. What may or may not be useful to Johnny as he flees is that he comes from an African-American family that has been gifted with super powers that are a bit, well, odd. Okay, very odd. THE TALENTED RIBKINS is a big-hearted debut novel about race, class, politics, and the unique gifts that, while they may cause some problems from time to time, bind a family together.
  • AS IF explores how strategic untruth plays a critical role in far-flung areas of inquiry: decision theory, psychology, natural science, and political philosophy. A polymath who writes with mainstream clarity, Appiah defends the centrality of the imagination not just in the arts but in science, morality, and everyday life…
  • In THREE-PIECE-MEAL, Prodigy Jenkins has always lived up to her name: At six, she read at an eighth-grade level; fifteen, in college and a master’s degree in psychology at the ripe age of twenty-three.
    But as brilliant as she is, Prodigy has never found a man who can live up to her expectations. Knowing she’s not the only woman who remains unfulfilled in love, Prodigy founds a support group called “Stuck on Stupid” for every woman who has been chewed up and spit out by a man…
