The Nim (North Fork Mono) Indians have lived for centuries in a remote region of California’s Sierra Nevada. In this memoir, Gaylen D. Lee recounts the story of his Nim family across six generations. Drawing from the recollections of his grandparents, mother, and other relatives, Lee provides a deeply personal account of his people’s history and culture. In keeping with the Nim’s traditional life-style, Lee’s memoir takes us through their annual seasonal cycle. He describes communal activities, such as food gathering, hunting and fishing, the processing of acorn (the Nim’s staple food), basketmaking, and ceremonies and games. Family photographs, some dating to the beginning of this century, enliven Lee’s descriptions. Woven into the seasonal account is the disturbing story of Hispanic and white encroachment into the Nim world. Lee shows how the Mexican presence in the early nineteenth century, the Gold Rush, the Protestant conversion movement, and, more recently, the establishment of a national forest on traditional land have contributed to the erosion of Nim culture. Walking Where We Lived is a bittersweet chronicle, revealing the persecution and hardships suffered by the Nim, but emphasizing their survival. Although many young Nim have little knowledge of the old ways and although the Nim are a minority in the land of their ancestors, the words of Lee’s grandmother remain a source of strength: "Ashupá. Don’t worry. It’s okay."

"Henry Allen is the truest chronicler of our American dream. By taking us into the homes of his history, he reveals our own lives in shafts of sunlit prose streaming through the windows of time and place."--James Grady, author of Six Days of the Condor "I loved the book."--Ann Beattie, author of Mrs. Nixon: A Novelist Imagines a Life and The State We're In: Maine Stories "Henry Allen, one of the best deadline essayists in the business."--Christopher Buckley, author of Thank You for Smoking Pulitzer Prize-winner Henry Allen brings alive nearly five centuries of family by describing places where they lived--from plantations in South Carolina and Guadeloupe to a boarding house in Queens; a sadly grand old house in Orange, New Jersey; farmhouses, mansions, apartments, ships, tents, and dormitories; towns in Rhode Island and Connecticut. He vividly describes his family's historical journey through Indian wars, a witchcraft trial, privateering, wagon trains, a split over slave trading, the friendship of presidents, the dwindling of the old Anglo-Saxon hegemony, and the heartless mysteries of money, alcohol, and gentility. I feared my children and their children would never know about the lost worlds of our family--love, moral stands, disappointment, Christmas dinners, the ancient and ordinary sunlight that transported us like aliens from galaxies of the past. These galaxies not only existed but persisted despite the apathy of their inheritors. Consider this book a last will and testament, an attempt to stave off the probate of oblivion. Intense, mercurial, and bearded, Henry Allen is a Marine veteran of Vietnam and was a feature writer and art critic at The Washington Post from 1970 to 2009. His books include Going Too Far Enough: American Culture at Century's End, What It Felt Like: Living in the American Century, Fool's Mercy, and The Museum of Light Air.

Meet Tanya, Gwen, Emma, Mia, and Claire, five girls from the same hometown whose lives intersect under unforgettable circumstances. Tanya grows up with an abusive brother and a prostitute's daughter for a best friend. Across town, Gwen's teenage daydreams of being a supermodel are disrupted when her younger brother has a nearly fatal accident; later she flees to Madrid in an attempt to heal after being attacked in an alleyway behind a nightclub. Emma has a working single mother who, like all mothers in such circumstances, has difficulty controlling and protecting her daughter from the rough-and-tumble world in which they live. Mia, the woman who overcomes perhaps the most, loses her father to suicide and is tormented by a mentally ill neighbor who is obsessed with his death. Years later, she revisits these dark emotions when her childhood best friend is murdered. And, finally, Claire is the aspiring writer who as a child fears losing her family and then as an adult deals with her sense of loneliness and isolation by bartending in a nightclub. Despite the dark nature of their stories, these girls are not defeated by their experiences. Their difficulties fortify them, make them push forward through their lives with great force and perseverance. Yet within their journeys through new cities and worlds, each of them still must overcome the internal struggle that inevitably happens when you have left where you are from, the place that defines you, and have settled somewhere all on your own. Through these remarkable characters, Christina Fitzpatrick captures not only the anger and fear in being young and unprotected, but also the strength and compassion that unite all of us who have suffered and survived. In this dark, breathtaking work, Ms. Fitzpatrick's haunting prose elevates the female experience into a powerful, raw read.Where We Livedis both stunning fiction and the debut of a major new talent.

“Barnes has constructed an intricate apocalyptic world that frighteningly mirrors present-day reality.”—Shelf Awareness, starred review In a near future where climate change has severely affected weather and agriculture, the North End of an unnamed city has long been abandoned in favor of the neighboring South End. Aside from the scavengers steadily stripping the empty city to its bones, only a few thousand people remain, content to live quietly among the crumbling metropolis. Many, like the narrator, are there to try to escape the demons of their past. He spends his time observing and recording the decay around him, attempting to bury memories of what he has lost. But it eventually becomes clear that things are unraveling elsewhere as well, as strangers, violent and desperate alike, begin to appear in the North End, spreading word of social and political deterioration in the South End and beyond. Faced with a growing disruption to his isolated life, the narrator discovers within himself a surprising need to resist losing the home he has created in this empty place. He and the rest of the citizens of the North End must choose whether to face outsiders as invaders or welcome them as neighbors. The City Where We Once Lived is a haunting novel of the near future that combines a prescient look at how climate change and industrial flight will shape our world with a deeply personal story of one man running from his past. In lean, spare prose, Eric Barnes brings into sharp focus questions of how we come to call a place home and what is our capacity for violence when that home becomes threatened.

Nineteen-year-old Kelsey Larkin's parents uninvited her to her brother's funeral. She just wanted to wear jeans and a T-shirt-the clothes Kyle would've wanted her in-not wrap herself up in death. So she watched the funeral from afar, like an outsider. Which is just how she feels. Chase came, though, just like she knew he would. Until a few months ago, the three of them had been best friends, and then Chase made a mistake that shattered both families. But when Kelsey looks at him, she doesn't see her brother's killer. She sees the boy next door who's always taken care of her. She sees home. When Chase tells her his feelings run deeper than friendship, she can't help but get lost in him. In Chase, she finally has the closure she's been unable to find anywhere else. But the boy she's falling in love with is still hiding secrets about the night Kyle died. Secrets that could destroy everything they have...again.

Razor-sharp and thought-provoking, Lindsey J. Palmer's incisive new novel both celebrates and skewers modern relationships and their milestones, offering a witty and wise look at what it takes to commit--to love, to a home, and to the life that's right for you. After three years of dating and trading nights at their respective New York City apartments, Emma Feit and Nick O'Hare are moving in together. Or they will be, as soon as they find the right place. For two happily-in-love professionals--Nick's a teacher, Emma tutors college-bound teens--with good credit and stellar references, how hard can it be? As it turns out, very--in ways that are completely unexpected. Suddenly Emma is filled with questions about cohabiting, about giving up her freedom--not to mention about who's going to clean the toilet. And while her best friend plans a dream wedding to her wealthy fiancé, and her older brother settles into suburban bliss, Emma must figure out what home means to her--and how on earth to get there. “If We Lived Here is a brisk and insightful look at the complications of cohabitation.” —Harper’s Bazaar “This lighthearted read... shined a heartwarming, insightful light on love.” —FIRST for Women “If We Lived Here cleverly explores the highs and lows (mostly lows) of apartment hunting in New York City. It is also a journey into the complexity of romantic relationships, the changing dynamics of friendship in your 30s, and ultimately the quest for a home.” —The Huffington Post
