"Generous and entertaining." -Publishers Weekly (starred review) Finalist for the PEN/Diamonstein-Spielvogel Award for the Art of the Essay From the #1 New York Times bestselling author and columnist comes a "fiercely funny, powerfully smart, and remarkably brave" (Cheryl Strayed) collection of heartwarming personal essays "as wonderful as her fiction" (Mindy Kaling) that "will enthusiastically reach out to readers and swiftly draw them close" (Publishers Weekly , starred review). Jennifer Weiner is many things: a bestselling author, a Twitter phenomenon, and an "unlikely feminist enforcer" (The New Yorker ). She's also a mom, a daughter, and a sister, a clumsy yogini, and a reality-TV devotee. In this "unflinching look at her own experiences" (Entertainment Weekly ), Jennifer fashions tales of modern-day womanhood as uproariously funny and moving as the best of Nora Ephron and Tina Fey. No subject is off-limits in these intimate and honest essays: sex, weight, envy, money, her mother's coming out of the closet, her estranged father's death. From lonely adolescence to hearing her six-year-old daughter say the F word-fat-for the first time, Jen dives into the heart of female experience, with the wit and candor that have endeared her to fans all over the world.

Hungry Heart is filled with the honest searching of a girl's coming of age and beyond, looking for love and acceptance. At times the journey to adulthood is seen through revealing journal entries and poetry; at other times it sounds the desperate inborn cry of the human heart from infancy to adulthood-the need to be loved and cherished. Hungry Heart tells the story of the search for love through food, men, more food, more men, and finally finding the hunger quenched by the greatest love of all. "What I remember most about Lorene is that she always had a smile on her face no matter what the situation was. It was hard to tell if she was on top of the world or hurting terribly inside. She was never unkind to anyone, even those that didn't treat her well. I truly believe she has a spirit that can't be broken. I know there was a lot of pain in those days but she never let it totally defeat her. It is very evident now that she has raised above all that to become very successful and works tirelessly to inspire others." - Mark Perkins, Director of Bands and Technology, Scranton High School, Scranton, North Dakota.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author and “one of the biggest names in popular fiction” (USA TODAY) comes a collection of personal essays as uproariously funny as the best of Tina Fey and Nora Ephron. In her forty-something years, bestselling novelist Jennifer Weiner has gone from feeling like an outsider in her picturesque Connecticut hometown (“a Lane Bryant outtake in an Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue”), to being a Princeton graduate, to a successful newspaper reporter in Philadelphia, and, eventually, a mother, novelist, and occasional Hollywood boldfaced name. Weiner's hilarious and insightful chronicles of her life cover everything from her bad dates to her mother coming out of the closet at age fifty-four to casting a goat in her sitcom. Jennifer pairs her trademark sharp humor with disarming candor in this, her first nonfiction work. No subject is off limits, and that includes hearing her daughter use the F-word—fat—for the first time, and learning from the police that her estranged father had died in his girlfriend's bathroom. Crazy-funny and deeply touching by turns, this collection will prove that the voice behind Jennifer Weiner's beloved novels is every bit as endearing, smart, and quirky as it is in real life.

Hungry Heart Roaming meanders between two 'in-between' places. It leaves one beach at the turn of the tide, and a young boy with his grandmother, and ends with a grandfather with another young boy, when the tide begins to make, on another beach. In between it wanders through a lost and perhaps more hopeful Europe before finally coming to brief peace in the knowledge of a longer journey still to be made, and a recognition that to know is uncertain and to understand can only be partial. Remembering with affection the ignorant and thoughtless visions of youth, the journey maps the loss of innocence and its replacement (perhaps) by something like understanding, and acceptance.

“A briliant multicultual collection that reminds readers that stories about food are rarely just about the food alone.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) A stunning collection of short stories about the intersection of family, culture, and food in the lives in teens, from bestselling and critically acclaimed authors, including Sandhya Menon, Anna-Marie McLemore, and Rin Chupeco. A shy teenager attempts to express how she really feels through the pastries she makes at her family’s pasteleria. A tourist from Montenegro desperately seeks a magic soup dumpling that can cure his fear of death. An aspiring chef realizes that butter and soul are the key ingredients to win a cooking competition that could win him the money to save his mother’s life. Welcome to Hungry Hearts Row, where the answers to most of life’s hard questions are kneaded, rolled, baked. Where a typical greeting is, “Have you had anything to eat?” Where magic and food and love are sometimes one in the same. Told in interconnected short stories, Hungry Hearts explores the many meanings food can take on beyond mere nourishment. It can symbolize love and despair, family and culture, belonging and home.

Of all veteran rock and roll stars, Bruce Springsteen has perhaps most been able to retain a special, reciprocal relationship with his following, a connection which transcends fanaticism and goes beyond that of mere fan to artist. For over a quarter century, Springsteen has never changed his belief that his music should at least attempt to offer something tangible and meaningful to the listener. Hungry Heart: The Music of Bruce Springsteen explains the reasons for Springsteen's unique relationship with his fans, the mutual feeling that the other is "one of us." As the title suggests, the emphasis is on Springsteen's music, whether heard on recordings or in concert. While enough historical data is included to ensure narrative flow and provide background information relevant to his music, the book is not intended as a biography. Instead it's an in-depth, critical study of Springsteen's entire recorded output as heard over sixteen albums, plus assorted singles, film songs and one-offs. Besides official releases, the book will also discuss the more generally well-known of his unreleased songs. There is also a chapter on cover versions of Springsteen's songs as recorded by other artists, including renditions of cuts Bruce has recorded, tracks he never released himself and songs he expressly wrote for or with another performer. Hungry Heart: The Music of Bruce Springsteen is written with passion, humor and insight, from a fan's perspective but with a critical eye. It is a book to be enjoyed by both hard-core and casual Springsteen enthusiasts, and one to be referred to time and time again.

Shortlisted for the NZ Post Award this fascinating, innovative biography is of a true original and significant figure in NZ's early colonisation. "I love doubters: of a truly honest doubter I have great hope." Printer, botanist and missionary, William Colenso was a nineteenth-century maverick, a true original. He protested at the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, arguing that Maori did not fully understand its implications. He became a troubled conscience during the white-hot period of colonisation, maintaining his dissident voice throughout his career. Peter Wells refreshes our vision of this awkward, highly talented man, who lost his family after the church expelled him for fathering a child by a Maori woman. Rejected by church, family and friends, Colenso made botany his home and lovingly described the plants of New Zealand. At the same time he wrote a series of remarkable pamphlets that open up our past. 'I write for future generations,' he noted in 1881. The time has come to welcome Colenso back.
