<p><b>* Instant NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY bestseller *</b><br /><b>* GOODREADS CHOICE AWARD WINNER for BEST DEBUT and BEST ROMANCE of 2019 *</b><br /><b>* BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR* for VOGUE, NPR, VANITY FAIR, and more!</b> *<br /><i></i><br /><i>What happens when America's First Son falls in love with the Prince of Wales?</i><br /><i></i><br />When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius鈥攈is image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There's only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse. </p><p>Heads of family, state, and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret romance with a surprisingly unstuffy Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations and begs the question: Can love save the world after all? Where do we find the courage, and the power, to be the people we are meant to be? And how can we learn to let our true colors shine through? Casey McQuiston's <i>Red, White & Royal Blue</i> proves: true love isn't always diplomatic. <br /><b></b><br /><b>"I took this with me wherever I went and stole every second I had to read!

<p><strong>Named one of the most anticipated books of 2019 by <em>Vulture</em>, <em>Entertainment Weekly</em>, Buzzfeed, <em>Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe</em>, Oprah.com,<em> Huffington Post,</em> The A.V. Club, <em>Nylon,</em> The Week, The Rumpus, The Millions, <em>The Guardian, Publishers Weekly,</em> and more<br /><br />Poet Ocean Vuong鈥檚 debut novel is a shattering portrait of a family, a first love, and the redemptive power of storytelling</strong><br /><br /><em>On Earth We鈥檙e Briefly Gorgeous</em> is a letter from a son to a mother who cannot read. Written when the speaker, Little Dog, is in his late twenties, the letter unearths a family鈥檚 history that began before he was born 鈥?a history whose epicenter is rooted in Vietnam 鈥?and serves as a doorway into parts of his life his mother has never known, all of it leading to an unforgettable revelation. At once a witness to the fraught yet undeniable love between a single mother and her son, it is also a brutally honest exploration of race, class, and masculinity. Asking questions central to our American moment, immersed as we are in addiction, violence, and trauma, but undergirded by compassion and tenderness, <em>On Earth We鈥檙e Briefly Gorgeous</em> is as much about the power of telling one鈥檚 own story as it is about the obliterating silence of not being heard. <br /><br />With stunning urgency and grace, Ocean Vuong writes of people caught between disparate worlds, and asks how we heal and rescue one another without forsaking who we are. The question of how to survive, and how to make of it a kind of joy, powers the most important debut novel of many years.</p>

<b><b>INSTANT <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER聽<br />A HELLO SUNSHINE x REESE WITHERSPOON BOOK CLUB PICK</b><br /><br />A thrilling tale of secretaries turned spies, of love and duty, and of sacrifice--inspired by the true story of the CIA plot to infiltrate the hearts and minds of Soviet Russia, not with propaganda, but with the greatest love story of the twentieth century: <i>Doctor Zhivago</i>.</b><br /><br />At the height of the Cold War, two secretaries are pulled out of the typing pool at the CIA and given the assignment of a lifetime. Their mission: to smuggle <i>Doctor Zhivago</i> out of the USSR, where no one dare publish it, and help Pasternak's magnum opus make its way into print around the world. Glamorous and sophisticated Sally Forrester is a seasoned spy who has honed her gift for deceit all over the world--using her magnetism and charm to pry secrets out of powerful men. Irina is a complete novice, and under Sally's tutelage quickly learns how to blend in, make drops, and invisibly ferry classified documents.<br /><br /><i>The Secrets We Kept </i>combines a legendary literary love story--the decades-long affair between Pasternak and his mistress and muse, Olga Ivinskaya, who was sent to the Gulag and inspired Zhivago's heroine, Lara--with a narrative about two women empowered to lead lives of extraordinary intrigue and risk. From Pasternak's country estate outside Moscow to the brutalities of the Gulag, from Washington, D.C. to Paris and Milan,<i> The Secrets We Kept</i> captures a watershed moment in the history of literature--told with soaring emotional intensity and captivating historical detail. And at the center of this unforgettable debut is the powerful belief that a piece of art can change the world.
