Celebrating the wonderful world of dolls, this coffee-table book displays the impressively diverse assemblage of Ruth E. Funk, a beloved American artist and doll enthusiast. It pays homage to doll-making and the unique character of each hand-crafted creation, whether a humble rag doll, a wooden peg doll, or a high-fashion French collectible. While Ruth’s eclectic collection does include a number of priceless treasures, it would not be complete without her most cherished ethnic pieces: simply constructed yet absolutely fascinating national dolls that proudly display the costumes and culture of their homelands. Her more than 500 dolls—antique, vintage, and modern—are photographically featured and described in terms of nationality, materiality, size, and significance. The approachable book includes the story of the author’s personal doll collecting journey as well as collector tips and resources, making it an exceptional source of inspiration for doll lovers of all ages.

The Pulitzer Prize–nominated author of Little Big Man returns with perhaps one of his most imaginative alternate realities yet: a matriarchal society. Women reign supreme in the not-so-distant future, where Georgie Cornell has no choice but to wear the high heel shoe on the other foot. Swept into the chaotic world of publishing, he is at the mercy of his female bosses, especially if his pencil skirt is an inch too short. Georgie only has one male coworker he can lean on for a bit of support, and his friend Charlie’s fascination with gender roles borders on the scandalous for Georgie’s taste. Still, when Georgie loses his job it’s Charlie he turns to for comfort. Spilling a drink on his expensive dress, he has no choice but to wear the women’s clothes Charlie keeps in secret on the way home. The simple journey quickly turns chaotic when Georgie is taken in by the police for the crime of being a transvestite. A prison escape is only the start of this piercing, insightful, and prescient look at gender norms. “Imagined with such ferocity and glee that we assent to it almost in spite of ourselves . . . A brilliant accomplishment by one of our best novelists.” —The New York Times Book Review

Gossip! Gossip! Gossip! The Lizard Club “tells all” about the birth of San Francisco’s underground club scene. But who’s real and who’s not? Abbott’s novel suggested that in the ‘90s, we could no longer tell fact from fantasy. William Burroughs, Dennis Cooper, Robert Gluck, and Sarah Schulman praised the late Steve Abbott’s first novel, Holy Terror. This follow-up Menippean satire is equally engaging.
