A classic exposé in company with An Inconvenient Truth and Silent Spring, The Story of Stuff expands on the celebrated documentary exploring the threat of overconsumption on the environment, economy, and our health. Leonard examines the “stuff” we use everyday, offering a galvanizing critique and steps for a changed planet. The Story of Stuff was received with widespread enthusiasm in hardcover, by everyone from Stephen Colbert to Tavis Smiley to George Stephanopolous on Good Morning America, as well as far-reaching print and blog coverage. Uncovering and communicating a critically important idea—that there is an intentional system behind our patterns of consumption and disposal—Annie Leonard transforms how we think about our lives and our relationship to the planet. From sneaking into factories and dumps around the world to visiting textile workers in Haiti and children mining coltan for cell phones in the Congo, Leonard, named one of Time magazine’s 100 environmental heroes of 2009, highlights each step of the materials economy and its actual effect on the earth and the people who live near sites like these. With curiosity, compassion, and humor, Leonard shares concrete steps for taking action at the individual and political level that will bring about sustainability, community health, and economic justice. Embraced by teachers, parents, churches, community centers, activists, and everyday readers, The Story of Stuff will be a long-lived classic.

One kid's trash is another kid's terror in this spooky supernatural mystery. When Cassidy Bean leaves New York to spend the summer upstate, she's disappointed to find that Whitechapel is not the quiet, pleasant suburb she remembers. Ursula Chambers, the strange old hermit at the end of the cul-de-sac, has passed away under mysterious circumstances. And the townspeople are shocked to discover that Ursula was a hoarder: Her farmhouse is teeming with stacks of newspapers, piles of furniture, mounds of antique dolls and taxidermy animals. Cassidy watches as the people of Whitechapel descend upon Ursula's farmhouse, claiming her abandoned treasures for their own. She listens as rumors spread that Ursula's vengeful ghost is stalking the town with a warning from beyond the grave. And when Cassidy resolves to uncover the truth behind the strangeness, she learns there are more bad things in the world than she ever suspected. . . . Modern master of the macabre Dan Poblocki is back with another scary story best read at night.

The Frenzy and the Grievance are both narrated by Murray Schenps, a retired I.R.S investigator whos heavily medicated, and, at times, paranoid. When the Frenzy opens, America is getting ready to invade Iraq, and people in New York are still jittery from 9/11. Coming home from his job as a security guard early one morning, Murray spots a group of naked people in Chelsea dancing around an open drum. Hes disturbed by this (are the people drugged, sick? Is the air poisoned?), and goes from trying to investigate whats going on (as well as checking out a similar event in the West Village, where two naked men were killed in the street) to writing a book about what hes seen and found out. Doing the book (where he makes the leader of the group a possible terrorist) he enlists the aid of a female investigator from the Board of Health, and continually argues with a female reporter from The New York Post, who is also writing about both problemsleading to terrible consequences for Murray and both women. The Grievance opens nearly three years laterright after Abu Ghraib revelations. Murray is now teaching writing in New York, having published his book about what happened earlier, but made little money from it. Hes still angry at Marlene Ward, The New York Post reporter, and eventually tries to pay her back for thing she did to ruin his possible career as a writer. When a student submits a manuscript about killing Iraqi prisoners at a black site in New Jersey, Murray tries to find out if its the truth and not get killed in the process. This leads to confrontations with the soldiers uncle, and Marlene Wardwho gets wind in the story. Again, problems are solved by violence, the grievances that Murray, Paul Jones, and his superiors as well as Joness uncle have, being resolved in deadly ways.

The pages overflow with humor and an array of cool phrases that will have readers bending and sending, blowing soup, and gargling gravy all the way to the bathroom! For instance, did you know: In 1971, a band named Hot Poop released a record titled Does Their Own Stuff! They were never heard from again. When using fake vomit, the key to faking people out is to sprinkle water on the stuff to make it look more realistic. Belly button lint is composed of dust, dried sweat, fat, dead skin, and bits of cotton. A man named Graham Barker has collected his belly button lint in jars since 1984.
