The Man Who Designed the Future: Norman Bel Geddes and the Invention of Twentieth-Century America

B. Alexandra Szerlip

The Man Who Designed the Future: Norman Bel Geddes and the Invention of Twentieth-Century America by B. Alexandra SzerlipBefore there was Steve Jobs, there was Norman Bel Geddes.

A ninth-grade dropout who found himself at the center of the worlds of industry, advertising, theater, and even gaming, Bel Geddes designed everything from the first all-weather stadium, to Manhattan's most exclusive nightclub, to Futurama, the prescient 1939 exhibit that envisioned how America would look in the not-too-distant 60s.

In The Man Who Designed the Future, B. Alexandra Szerlip reveals precisely how central Bel Geddes was to the history of American innovation. He presided over a moment in which theater became immersive, function...

Man of the Year: A Memoir

Lou Cove

Man of the Year: A Memoir by Lou Cove

For one 1970's family, the center may not hold, but it certainly does fold.

In 1978 Jimmy Carter mediates the Camp David Accords, Fleetwood Mac tops charts with Rumours, Starsky fights crime with Hutch, and twelve-year-old Lou Cove is uprooted from the Upper West Side of Manhattan to Salem, Massachusetts- a backwater town of witches, Puritans, and sea-captain wannabes. After his eighth move in a dozen years, Lou figures he should just resign himself to a teenage purgatory of tedious paper routes, school bullies, and unrequited lust for every girl he likes.

Then one October morning an old friend...

The Good Girl Stripped Bare

Tracey Spicer

The Good Girl Stripped Bare by Tracey SpicerFrom bogan to boned and beyond - a full-frontal 'femoir' by one of Australia's best-loved journalists 'Will you ever work in television again?' the journalist asks, thrusting a microphone towards me. 'I hope so,' I say before scuttling into a cafe. It's feeding time and I need to express. But questions niggle, like chafed nipples. Can women stand up for their rights without retribution? Should you cry over spilled milk? And what happens when a good girl goes bad? Tracey Spicer was always the good girl. Inspired by Jana Wendt, this bogan from the Brisbane backwaters waded through the 'cruel and...

Hot, Wet, and Shaking: How I Learned to Talk About Sex

Kaleigh Trace

Hot, Wet, and Shaking: How I Learned to Talk About Sex by Kaleigh TraceWinner of the 2015 Evelyn Richardson Non-fiction Award This is a sex book. It's a book about having sex by yourself, with one person, or with twenty people if everyone is down. It's about saying words like cunt, fuck, and come. But it's also about the things we don't talk about-the mystery, the expectations, and the bullshit that can go along with sex. Kaleigh Trace-disabled, queer, sex educator-chronicles her journey from ignorance to bliss as she shamelessly discusses her sexual exploits, bodily negotiations and attempts at adulthood, sparing none of the details and assuming you are not polite...

The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin

Franklin Benjamin

The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin by Franklin Benjamin

Franklin's Autobiography has received widespread praise, both for its historical value as a record of an important early American and for its literary style. It is often considered the first American book to be taken seriously by Europeans as literature.

"He was therefore, feasted and invited to all the court parties. At these he sometimes met the old Duchess of Bourbon, who, being a chess player of about his force, they very generally played together. Happening once to put her king into prize, the Doctor took it. 'Ah,' says she, 'we do not take kings so.' 'We do in America,' said the Doctor."...
