March's Author of the Month: DON WINSLOW

Wednesday, Feb 20, 2019 at 5:12pm

Bestselling author Don Winslow has written twenty novels, including the highly acclaimed epics The Power of the DogThe Cartel, and The Force.

The son of a sailor and a librarian, Winslow grew up with a love of books and storytelling. At age seventeen, he left home to study journalism at the University of Nebraska.

Winslow’s travels have taken him around the world and into various jobs including movie theatre manager, tour guide, and private investigator. While travelling, Winslow wrote his first novel, A Cool Breeze On The Underground, which was nominated for an Edgar Award. With a wife and young son to support, Winslow went back to investigative work, mostly in California, where he and his family lived in hotels for almost three years as he worked cases and became a trial consultant.

In Winslow's latest novel, The Border, Art Keller has been on the front lines of America’s longest conflict: The War on Drugs, for over forty years. His obsession to defeat the godfather of the Sinaloa Cartel, Adán Barrera, has left him scarred and cost him the people he loves. Now Keller is elevated to the highest ranks of the DEA, only to find that in destroying one monster he has created thirty more that are wreaking even more chaos and suffering in his beloved Mexico. But not just there. Barrera’s final legacy is the heroin epidemic scourging America. Art Keller is at war with not only the cartels, but with his own government. And the long fight has taught him more than he ever imagined. Now, he learns the final lesson — there are no borders. (Softcover. $24.99. RRC Price $22.49. William Morrow. March)

February's Author of the Month: MATT HAIG

Friday, Feb 01, 2019 at 4:30pm

Matt Haig is a British novelist and journalist. He suffered a breakdown in his early twenties, and after battling depression for many years he turned to writing, and he now believes that reading and writing books saved his life. He has written both fiction and non-fiction for children and adults. His memoir Reasons to Stay Alive was a number one bestseller, staying in the British top ten for 46 weeks. His children’s book A Boy Called Christmas was a runaway hit and has been translated into over 25 languages. It is being made into a film by Studio Canal and The Guardian called it an ‘instant classic’. His novels for adults include the award-winning The Radleys, The Humans, and How to Stop Time. All of his novels for adults have been optioned for film.

Matt Haig's newest book, Notes on a Nervous Planet, posits that the societies we are part of are increasingly making our minds ill. It very often feels that the way we live is almost engineered to make us unhappy. Whether it is our attitudes toward sleep, the marketing messages that inundate us daily, the constant and hysterical news cycle, social media or even the way we educate our children, we are programming ourselves to put our bodies and minds at odds and setting ourselves up with expectations for our lives that prevent our happiness.

When Matt became ill with panic disorder, anxiety and depression, it took him a long time to work out the ways the external world could impact his mental health in positive and negative ways. Notes on a Nervous Planet shares his journey back to happiness and all of the lessons that Matt learned along the way. (Softcover. $19.99. RRC Price $17.99. HarperCollins. February)
