At just five years old, Dana learned that there was no one she could trust. Most devastating of all, even her own mother betrayed her and in the most unimaginable way. For years, Dana and her younger sister suffered at the hands of one of Britain's largest ever-known paedophile rings. And their mother did nothing to protect them. Only now is Dana's nightmare coming to an end as she crusades to put her abusers behind bars. In June 2007 the truth was finally exposed. Dana bravely testified against her own mother. The woman who had subjected Dana and her sister to a lifetime of horror was sentenced to twelve years in prison. It was one of the most traumatic ordeals Dana has ever experienced. But a shocked world was finally forced to open its eyes to what happened to Dana. This is her story of survival.

"Brilliant. . . . The perfect summer read." --Nylon "[A] compulsively readable page-turner." --Cosmopolitan Named a most anticipated novel of the summer by Vogue, Entertainment Weekly, Elle, Bustle, Vulture, and more. An assured and savagely funny novel about three old friends as they navigate careers, husbands, an ex-fiancé, new suitors, and, most importantly, their relationships with one another After a devastating break-up with her fiancé, Geraldine is struggling to get her life back on track in Toronto. Her two old friends, Sunny and Rachel, left ages ago for New York, where they've landed good jobs, handsome husbands, and unfairly glamorous lives (or at least so it appears to Geraldine). Sick of watching from the sidelines, Geraldine decides to force the universe to give her the big break she knows she deserves, and moves to New York City. As she zigzags her way through the downtown art scene and rooftop party circuit, she discovers how hard it is to find her footing in a world of influencers and media darlings. Meanwhile, Sunny's life as an It Girl watercolorist is not nearly as charmed as it seemed to Geraldine from Toronto. And Rachel is trying to keep it together as a new mom, writer, and wife--how is it that she was more confident and successful at twenty-five than in her mid-thirties? Perhaps worst of all, why are Sunny and Rachel--who've always been suspicious of each other--suddenly hanging out without Geraldine? Hilarious and fiercely observed, How Could She is an essential novel of female friendship, an insider's look into the cutthroat world of New York media--from print to podcasting--and a witty exploration of the ways we can and cannot escape our pasts.

We’ve all heard horror stories of sexual abuse, incest, and rape ... and we’ve heard stories even more horrific, wherein children are conceived in this violence and violation. But what happens when these children are born of children? Children who find themselves alone, afraid, and completely unprepared for a situation they never asked to be in? Even in a world where the most graphic images and ideas are instantly available at the touch of a button, infanticide remains a reality too harsh to discuss ... let alone try to comprehend. We see the headlines and ask ourselves what could possibly drive someone to commit such an act. But do we really want to know? In this astonishing true-life narrative, the first of its kind ever written, How Could She Do It takes us on a heart-breaking journey behind the headlines, written by a woman who has had to live with this guilt and regret for a lifetime.

From the New York Times–bestselling author of The First Wives Club: This novel about an aging actress’s revenge on Hollywood is a “hoot” (Entertainment Weekly). Mary Jane Moran was an ambitious New York stage actress who lost the role of a lifetime and the one man she loved—all because Hollywood thought she was too plain and too old to star in the movies. But M. J. knew what she had inside—she just needed a little help bringing it out. Two years, forty pounds, sixty-seven thousand dollars, and a full round of nips, tucks, lipos, and implants later, the Broadway gypsy moth emerged a gorgeous butterfly with a new name and a new body. The woman now called Jahne Moore was svelte, sexy, and ripe for the big time. Jahne and her two sisters-in-arms—one ruthless LA native and one sweet Texas belle—are making their move on the West Coast. Television’s top creator wants them in the season’s white-hot new series. But as the starlets climb furiously to the top, they struggle to hide the secrets of their pasts. And Jahne Moore must give her most convincing performance ever when the same man who once broke her heart begs her to play a starring role—both in his show and in his life . . . “[A] juicy novel about Hollywood celebrities and secrets.” —Publishers Weekly “Compulsively readable.” —New York Daily News “Delicious and satisfying.” —Detroit Free Press

"Malcolm Palmer, dean of a provincial college in central Pennsylvania, undergoes an unsentimental education while traveling in Italy. Robbed of his handbag, containing his passport, cash and traveler's checks, credit and other cards, Malcolm finds that he no longer has a sense of himself. The presence of Alicia Hirsch, a former colleague who has moved into his hotel room after he's finished transacting the business for his college that has taken him to Rome, compounds his problems. A further complication is the mysterious murder of an international financier, on whose body Malcolm's passport has been found." "The once-in-a-lifetime adulterous holiday that Malcolm had hoped for turns into a time of self-testing and self-doubt. Finessed by a suave apologist for Mussolini and fascism, forced to confront violence and death, wanting and needing an essential self that is honest, courageous, and capable, Malcolm fails to measure up." "With the arrival in Rome of Malcolm's wife, Teddy, to arrange for the return home of the body of the husband she has mistakenly been informed has been murdered, the narrative moves to its climax. At almost the very minute, on the other side of the track on which Teddy's train rolls in, Malcolm is seeing Alicia off for Florence. Teddy's meeting with her "dead" husband is memorable comic melodrama."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
