"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.

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.

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

In the vein of "American Beauty," Shut the Door offers a glimpse into the world of a family in crisis. It focuses on two teenage sisters struggling to carve their identities as young adults, taking risks and undergoing disturbing transformations that go unchallenged by their emotionally absent parents. Meanwhile, their parents' marriage is disintegrating and no longer provides the support the girls so desperately need. Their father's prolonged absence on a business trip provides the impetus to reevaluate family roles and relationships--and the choices made are shocking. This evocative family portrait reveals just what happens when our support system falls away and we become disconnected from the ones we love the most.
