An old house, a new lover, a fresh life for Dominick—or will the faith-driven doom it all? The past just won’t go away. Dominick likes to idle there in history’s comfortable remove, but when his mother dies and he meets the half sister he never knew he had, the past becomes more personal—and the present more dangerous. In this sequel to New Jerusalem News, Dominick’s perpetual peregrinations are interrupted by a visit to his newfound sibling’s historic Hudson Valley estate, which is also home to a Wiccan coven. In one way or another his departure is continually delayed by circumstance, brushes with the local sheriff, and the history of the place itself—a stop on the Underground Railroad. Once again, Dominick’s quest for noninvolvement and a purely “observer’s” status is thwarted by reality. In Some People Talk With God, follow the new misadventures of this charming wanderer as he encounters an ineffable world of lovers, schemers, and fanatics.

The misadventures of Dominick, an “irresistible” couch-surfing one-percenter, begin in this “quirky and delightful” novel (Providence Journal). Dominick is always just passing through. Following the sun and the idle rich from resort to resort, he lives the free and easy life of a professional houseguest with nothing and nobody to tie him down. But when he decides to spend the winter on a small island off the New England coast, the off-season proves to be anything but quiet. Suddenly, despite his best efforts to remain detached from the rest of the human race, Dominick finds himself becoming involved with the travails of his geriatric hosts, Atticus and Lydia, and their coterie of oddball friends and local denizens—and going to some highly unusual extremes in the process. But the more he becomes enmeshed in the lives of others, the more he begins to rethink his own meandering life, especially when he somehow becomes a suspected terrorist. Sooner or later, everyone needs a place to call home—even if you really aren’t planning on staying long—and just because you live a carefree existence doesn’t mean you don’t care. From the author of the Jungle Beat mysteries set in American Samoa, New Jerusalem News is a delightful blend of intrigue and wit featuring a truly unforgettable character. “What a great beginning to a new series. You’ll laugh out loud but also enjoy Dominick’s asides on class warfare, crows, the past and cold, wet, provincial New England and New Englanders. The plot leaps and twists and delights…Enright’s off and running with Dominick, and he’s terrific.”—Providence Journal

After enduring bullying by his brother and being sexually abused at age eleven, author Dominick P. Varsalone set out to prove to the world-and to himself-that he was not gay. Learning to accept his sexuality and finally coming out took him many years and undeniable strength. In this heart-wrenching memoir, Varsalone chronicles this journey through his life's key struggles. After high school, he worked on the railroad, a male-dominated industry, where he faced persecution for who he was. His homosexuality made him the black sheep of his family, and the Roman Catholic religion of his parents repeatedly beat him down. Called to nursing as a profession at the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, he was able to get involved in caring for AIDS patients-some of them his close friends-and through their amazing life stories, he experienced a new way of looking at the world. While conservative religion seemed to focus on the Bible's most hateful words, he learned that compassion, love, and care can be the true means of carrying out God's work. One person can't do everything. But-as this story shows-when it comes to helping others, each of us can make a difference.

Named one of the best books of 2017 by Time, People,, The Guardian, Paste Magazine, The Economist, Entertainment Weekly, & Vogue Tina Brown kept delicious daily diaries throughout her eight spectacular years as editor-in-chief of Vanity Fair. Today they provide an incendiary portrait of the flash and dash and power brokering of the Excessive Eighties in New York and Hollywood. The Vanity Fair Diaries is the story of an Englishwoman barely out of her twenties who arrives in New York City with a dream. Summoned from London in hopes that she can save Condé Nast's troubled new flagship Vanity Fair, Tina Brown is immediately plunged into the maelstrom of the competitive New York media world and the backstabbing rivalries at the court of the planet's slickest, most glamour-focused magazine company. She survives the politics, the intrigue, and the attempts to derail her by a simple stratagem: succeeding. In the face of rampant skepticism, she triumphantly reinvents a failing magazine. Here are the inside stories of Vanity Fair scoops and covers that sold millions—the Reagan kiss, the meltdown of Princess Diana's marriage to Prince Charles, the sensational Annie Leibovitz cover of a gloriously pregnant, naked Demi Moore. In the diary's cinematic pages, the drama, the comedy, and the struggle of running an "it" magazine come to life. Brown's Vanity Fair Diaries is also a woman's journey, of making a home in a new country and of the deep bonds with her husband, their prematurely born son, and their daughter. Astute, open-hearted, often riotously funny, Tina Brown's The Vanity Fair Diaries is a compulsively fascinating and intimate chronicle of a woman's life in a glittering era.

The story of how a group of warriors, driven by faith, greed and wanderlust, carved out new Christian-ruled states in the Middle East is one of the most extraordinary of all epics. The crusaders' stunning initial success started a sequence of great Crusades, each with its own story, that fundamentally shaped the Christian and Muslim worlds for two centuries, until the last Crusader castles were finally expunged. The energy and commitment that sent army after army into the eastern Mediterranean also led to the invasion and conversion of Central and Baltic Europe, Spain, Portugal, the destruction of the Cathars in Provence and the settlement of America. Told with great verve and authority, God's War is the definitive account of a fascinating but also horrifying story. ‘We are still living with the images and legends of the crusades...Tyerman tells us how the Church set about preaching the crusades, exploiting the perennial pessimism and guilt of the European nobility of the Middle Ages. He shows how crusading ideology penetrated the religious sensibility of the period, as well as its secular fiction and poetry...Of all the modern histories of the crusades it is the shrewdest, the most reliable and the most complete.’ – The Spectator
