In the Arena: Good Citizens, a Great Republic, and How One Speech Can Reinvigorate America "With America’s free society being strangled by progressives and bureaucrats at home and America’s leadership assaulted
4
$6.50 USD

"With America’s free society being strangled by progressives and bureaucrats at home and America’s leadership assaulted by Islamists and globalists abroad, Pete Hegseth lays out a citizen-led roadmap for rejecting decline and forging another American century." (Mark Levin, nationally syndicated radio host and #1 New York Times best-selling author of Plunder and Deceit) “In the Arena is more than a memoir of service in a dangerous time for our country,. It is also a call of a true patriot for all Americans to heed Roosevelt’s challenge and take up the task of restoring American exceptionalism before it is too late.” (Karl Rove, New York Times bestselling author of Courage and Consequence) “Invoking the words of Teddy Roosevelt, Pete makes an important case for others to join him in the area by being good and engaged citizens. In the Arena is a must-read that underscores our collective responsibility to restore America’s role as an exceptional and indispensable global leader.” (Senator John McCain (R-AZ)) “Pete Hegseth’s In the Arena is a soldier’s clear-eyed perspective on the challenges we face in a new world disorder. It’s also a clarion call for “We the People” to save our Republic. If you care about your family’s future; before the next election, you need to read this book!” (Lt Col Oliver North USMC (Ret), New York Times bestselling author of American Heroes on the Homefront and host of War Stories on FOX News) "Pete Hegseth has written a contemporary update to Theodore Roosevelt's iconic "man in the arena" speech, one that makes for insightful and important reading." (Ambassador John Bolton, former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N.) “Pete Hegseth has spent a lot of time on battlefields—both metaphorical ones in Washington, and actual ones in Iraq and Afghanistan—and he's returned with a gritty and fascinating critique of a coddled, entitled—and therefore, imperiled—America in the age of Obama. The result is this book. Buy a copy. You'll come away stronger.” (Tucker Carlson, editor-in-chief of The Daily Caller and co-host of FOX & Friends) “This book is not a memoir—it’s a call to arms. Warrior Pete Hegseth makes a powerful case for renewing the conservative cause at home and reinvigorating American leadership abroad. Pete lights the way toward another essential, free and powerful American century.” (Katie Pavlich, editor of Townhall.com, FOX News contributor, and best-selling author of Assault and Flattery) “Pete Hegseth has written a book that's at once informative and inspiring, educational and captivating. His hero Teddy Roosevelt would have enjoyed it. So will you.” (William Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard) "Pete Hegseth has written an impassioned, wide-ranging book that is a rallying cry for engaged patriots to get in the arena, where we belong." (Rich Lowry, editor of National Review) “Pete Hegseth tells the hard truths about what American needs, at home and overseas, to make the 21st century an American century. A must-read for patriots who want to fight for a free and strong America." (Kimberly Guilfoyle, FOX News co-host of The Five and author of Making the Case) About the Author Pete Hegseth is a FOX News contributor who regularly appears on FOX & Friends, The Kelly File, and Outnumbered. An infantry officer in the Army National Guard, he is a veteran of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo Bay who holds two Bronze Stars and a Combat Infantryman’s Badge for his time overseas. He is the former CEO of the veterans advocacy organization Concerned Veterans for America and former Chairman of the pro-victory organization Vets for Freedom. He is also a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. He writes regularly for National Review and FOXNews.com and is a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

$30.19 USD
War And Peace

Adapted by leading screenwriter Andrew Davies, directed by Tom Harper and produced by BBC Wales and The Weinstein Company, War & Peace is a modern take on one of the most famous stories of all time. In 1805 when we first meet Pierre (Paul Dano), Natasha (Lily James), and Andrei (James Norton), they are all part of St Petersburg s glittering elite, but are fired-up with youthful ambition to find meaning in their lives. Kind-hearted but awkward Pierre, the illegitimate son of Russia s richest man, wants to change the world for the better. Handsome and gallant Andrei, frustrated with the superficiality of his life, seeks a purpose, while the beautiful and spirited Natasha is searching for true love. At the same time Napoleon's army edges ever closer to Russia's borders. As everything they thought they knew is questioned, Pierre, Andrei and Natasha find themselves in a time when Russian society is about to change forever.

Valiant Ambition: George Washington, Benedict Arnold, and the Fate of the American Revolution An Amazon Best Book of May 2016: I spent early summers running around Valley Forge in Pennsylvania and my later childhood years
6
$14.65 USD

An Amazon Best Book of May 2016: I spent early summers running around Valley Forge in Pennsylvania and my later childhood years living next door to Lexington, Massachusetts, where the first battle of the American Revolution was fought—so I thought I had a pretty good handle on the war. Philbrick proved me wrong with his fascinating history of the years from 1776 to 1780, when the new country teetered between victory and disaster, its destiny influenced by George Washington and Benedict Arnold. Both generals were audacious—Washington and Arnold jumped into situations risky both to themselves and to the soldiers who fought for them. Both generals suffered indignities at the hands of the Continental Congress, a body riven by its own politics and hamstrung by its inability to set taxes on its citizens. But while Washington learned to temper his aggressiveness, sought others’ wisdom, and developed a strategy for winning the war, Arnold remained self-centered and self-aggrandizing, focusing on the tactical to the detriment of the larger goal—culminating in his decision in 1780 to turn coat and deliver the fortress at West Point to the British army. Philbrick’s eye for the illuminating detail and his clear writing keeps the story taut, unlike many history books that too often overwhelm the reader with a sludge of see-I-did-my-research prose. Riveting and relevant, Valiant Ambition explodes the myth that a triumphant revolution was inevitable. --Adrian Liang "May be one of the greatest what-if books of the age—a volume that turns one of America’s best-known narratives on its head.” —Boston Globe “A suspenseful, richly detailed, and deeply researched book about the revolutionary struggle that bound George Washington and Benedict Arnold together and almost disastrous dysfunction of America’s revolutionary government that helped drive them apart.” —The New York Review of Books "Clear and insightful, it consolidates his reputation as one of America's foremost practitioners of narrative nonfiction." —Wall Street Journal "Philbrick is both a meticulous historian and a captivating storyteller. The book has unforgettable novelistic details [and] also contains much astute historical analysis and argument. Philbrick sees Arnold not as the man who almost lost the war so much as the catalyst that helped to win it." —Christian Science Monitor “This is history at its most compelling: political machinations, military jostling and outright treachery. And Philbrick’s vivid writing brings the whistling cannon balls and half-frozen soldiers to life (and death) in vivid detail….He peels back the mythology to reveal a teetering war effort, a bickering Congress, discordant states unwilling to coalesce to support the new national government and — above all — a traitor who sought to sell out his own country for personal gain and achieved instead the one thing that no other revolutionary could: a unification of the Americans and an end to the war. And for that, we have much to thank Benedict Arnold." —Seattle Times "Benedict Arnold takes center stage in Nathaniel Philbrick’s vivid and in some ways cautionary tale of the Revolutionary War. The near-tragic nature of the drama hinges not on any military secrets Arnold gave to the British but on an open secret: the weakness of the patriot cause….Arnold’s betrayal still makes for great drama, proving once again that the supposed villains of a story are usually the most interesting." —New York Times Book Review “Philbrick wants his readers to experience the terror, the suffering and the adrenaline rush of battle, and he wants us to grit our teeth at our early politicians who, by their pettiness and shortsightedness, shape military events as profoundly as generals and admirals do. Finally, he reveals the emotional and physical cost of war on colonial society. He succeeds on all fronts.” —Washington Post “Philbrick has the ability to take seemingly dry facts of history and turn them into exciting prose. The players come alive and their motivations are clear. The people he chronicles are legends, so revealing to the reader what makes them human, foibles and all, helps make sense of the events that transpired and why they acted the way they did.” —Associated Press "Philbrick's deep scholarship, nuanced analysis, and novelistic storytelling add up to another triumph." —Publishers Weekly, starred review “A lively account of our Revolutions’ most reviled figure.” —Kirkus Reviews "An engrossing narrative of the war’s most difficult years... Philbrick argues that the quarrelsome, divided Americans needed Arnold’s perfidy as much as they did Washington’s greatness to unify their new nation. He pushes aside the patriotic myth to unveil the war’s messy reality—and it’s still a rousing adventure.” —BookPage “As another American summer crawls toward the Fourth of July, and with a presidential election creeping up like Freddy on Elm Street, Nathaniel Philbrick offers some beach reading to remind us that outsized egos and a dysfunctional Congress were as much at issue in 1776 as they are now — if that’s any comfort...Valiant Ambition colorfully reconstructs the character-driven battles that defined the Revolutionary War.” —USA Today “Look, you’re not getting tickets to Hamilton. If he were alive, George Washington himself couldn’t get tickets to Hamilton. Here’s a cheaper alternative…a new look at the first American president and contrasts him with our most famous traitor.” —The Miami Herald Praise for Bunker Hill "A masterpiece of narrative and perspective." —Boston Globe "A tour de force . . ." —Chicago Tribune "Popular history at its best—a taut narrative with a novelist's touch, grounded in careful research." —Miami Herald "A story that resonates with leadership lessons for all times." —Walter Isaacson, The Washington Post "A gripping book." —The Wall Street Journal

Click-A-Bricks are educational building toys measuring about one-inch on all sides suitable for children ages 4 and up.

Strong Enough To Play With As a business run by two family-oriented individuals, the team at Click-A-Brick also encourages parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends to get involved with children as they play and build with Click-A-Brick.

We love to see children's smiles and their wonderful creations with our toys! Share with us your best creations and smiles and help give other parents and family members examples of how much fun Click-A-Brick can be for their child too. What people are saying about us... This Click-A-Brick Army Defenders educational building block set is wonderful! I have a five year old little boy and this has been the biggest hit. He has always been a fan of Lego's and he thought this was so much fun. As a parent I really appreciate that Click-A-Bricks are very easy to build and my 5 year old doesn't need much help. The pieces are very easy to put together and take apart. My son was able to build on his own without any frustration which was a relief for me as a mother. This set is so comprehensive and the possibilities are endless. My boy had so much fun just using his imagination to build. This set also comes with a step by step easy to follow guide for building everything shown in the listing photos. The bricks are very high quality and fit together perfectly. They are very solid. My boy has been having a blast with them. He can't wait for the next set. - Bella ForteThe kids had a BLAST with this set! I have 6 children and it was a hit with all of them! Once I opened the box, it was like a swarm of locusts – picking out pieces, looking at the manual (which shows step by step how to make everything), and clicking them together. The kiddos quickly just started using their imagination and making things on their own. The blocks snap together in a sort of 3D way, so they have to think ahead of what they are building to ensure they have the right configuration – which is great from an educational aspect. They had some feedback about the occasional difficulty when pulling the bricks apart, and the company was able to promptly provide the answers I was looking for, and even had a solution. Great product, and great company! When asked what they liked about it the most, they said the colors and the eyeballs! - SkylerThis was our first Click-A-Brick purchase and my daughter and I are really impressed! My daughter has not set them down since they've arrived (she's currently holding onto them while napping on the couch). She just had an appendectomy and this was the only toy she wanted at the hospital. This toy really encourages a child's imagination! The Click-A-Brick set that purchased was the Feather Friends 30pc Educational Block Set! First, we checked to make sure all 30 pieces were present {and they were}, then we followed the directions to build one of the birds {the parrot}, it turned out pretty well. Since then my daughter has made all different kinds of birds, people, beds, bridges, etc. out of the blocks! Each time she comes up, so excited, to show everyone what she has created. We looked it up and it seems as if there are 6 other sets being sold by Click-A-Brick on Amazon, my daughter would love them all and I will be purchasing at least a few for her for Christmas! Really thrilled with Click-A-Brick as a whole and especially the Feather Friends set! - Sarah Leatherman

1
$16.99 USD

''You won't believe how powerful it is now!'' -- NewType Having suffered heavy losses in the battle with the Saiyans, and with Goku still recovering from his injuries, the remaining Z-Fighters must embark on a perilous journey to Planet Namek in search of the Namekian Dragon Balls. Unbeknownst to them, however, a powerful new enemy has set his sights on the same prize the ruthless tyrant Frieza! Beset on all sides by danger, Gohan, Krillin, and Bulma must fight for their lives as they struggle to keep the Dragon Balls from falling into evil hands. Meanwhile, Goku races against time to join his friends in their quest, but waiting for him on Planet Namek is an army of the most powerful villains the universe has ever known, led by Frieza s most elite fighting unit the unstoppable Ginyu Force! Season Two contains: -The Complete Namek Saga - first time on DVD! and Captain Ginyu Saga -35 Action-Packed Episodes on 6 discs -Revised English Dialogue with Original Japanese Music The second season of the wildly popular Dragon Ball Z comprises the "Namek" and "Captain Ginyu" sagas. Gohan, Krillin, and Bulma travel to the planet Namek to find an even more powerful set of Dragon Balls that can restore the lives of Tenshinhan, Yamucha, Chaozu and Piccolo, who were killed by Vegeta during the first season. (Their souls continue to train with King Kai in the Other World.) All is not well on Namek: the arch-villain Frieza, who looks and sounds a bit like Truman Capote, also desires the Dragon Balls. If he uses them to obtain eternal life, he'll rule the universe forever. With a cadre of lieutenants that includes Vegeta, he slaughters the Namekians to gain the supernatural orbs. After his injuries have been healed by a magic senzu bean, Goku heads to Namek. En route, he trains at 100 gravities, raising his powers enormously. Vegeta believes Goku may be the legendary Super Saiyan that appears once a millennium--except he lacks the requisite love of battle. This version of Goku is less aggressive, and he uncharacteristically uses his brain (never his greatest asset) to defeat Ginyu, Frieza's second-in-command. Unlike Season 1--Vegeta Saga, Season 2ends on a cliff-hanger. Skeptics may find Goku's adventures needlessly protracted, over the top, and even silly. But for millions of boys, they provide the special blend of comradeship, martial arts training, and take-no-prisoners battles they love. The newly remastered edition includes the original Japanese dialogue for the first time. (Rated TV PG. suitable for ages 8 and older: violence, minor risqué humor, brief nudity, tobacco and alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

7
$17.21 USD

“This ranks among the best combat narratives written in recent decades, revealing Romesha as a brave and skilled soldier as well as a gifted writer....Romesha remains humble and self-effacing throughout, in a contrast with many other first-person battle accounts, and his powerful, action-packed book is likely to stand as a classic of the genre.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “The book is riveting in its authentic detail....Romesha ably captures the daily dangers faced by these courageous American soldiers in Afghanistan.”—Kirkus Reviews “[Romesha’s] account displays all the hallmarks of superlative wartime reporting: unflinching honesty; vivid, in-the-trenches description; and deeper reflections on the pathos of battle.”—Booklist “[A] clear and expertly crafted account of an iconic fight during the Afghan War.”—Library Journal “[Red Platoon is] compelling and rich with detail into a world most of us will not experience. It will make readers really think about what soldiers go through for their country. Romesha is a great storyteller, knowing how to draw you in and leave you breathless.”—News and Sentinel “I couldn’t recommend [this] book, Red Platoon, any higher.”—Bill O'Reilly “An amazing read....A gripping account of men in desperate combat against an overwhelming enemy.”—The Tampa Bay Tribune “[Romesha’s] experiences blaze the pages of his new memoir.”—Investor’s Business Daily “The battle, from start to finish, is riveting....I’m confident in saying that anyone who reads the full account—from the initial assault to the end of the attack—will be sucked into the action.”—Conservative Book Club “Red Platoon is an exceptional book....[A] meticulous and powerful telling of the 2009 battle at COP Keating in Afghanistan.”—Military.com “It is a gripping read. It's something that will have you gasping as you hold your breath, rooting for Romesha and his comrades to prevail. More important, it is something that rises to the level of literature in its portrayal of a battle most Americans probably know nothing about, as a part of a war our country still seems to be struggling to understand.”—Grand Forks Herald “What sets Red Platoon apart is Romesha’s thoroughness in recounting the frantic scramble of events.”—Herald and News “It is so well written you're likely to feel you're in the middle of the action....Red Platoon will make you marvel at the courage of our young men in the face of a much larger force and the stupidity of the generals who put them there.”—Minneapolis Star-Tribune “This compellingly candid detail written by Medal of Honor recipient Clinton Romesha tells of the grisly tumult of the Battle of Keating through the rawest of lenses—his own.”—Parade “Red Platoon by Medal of Honor recipient Clinton Romesha will probably prove to be the definitive literary contribution of the war in Afghanistan.”—Lincoln Journal Star "I read the first half of Red Platoon in one sitting and that night had such intense combat dreams that I actually thought twice about picking the book up again. In addition to being a superb soldier, Romesha is an utterly irresistible writer. I'm completely overwhelmed by what he has done with this book. The assault on Camp Keating is a vitally important story that needs to be understood by the public, and I cannot imagine an account that does it better justice that Romesha's.”—Sebastian Junger, journalist and author of The Perfect Storm “Rendered hour by hour and sometimes second by second, here is battle narrative the way it's supposed to be written. Gritty, plangent, and unflinching, Red Platoon is sure to become a classic of the genre. Through his courageous and no doubt painful act of remembrance, Romesha has done his comrades, indeed all of us, a great service—leaving an epitaph that will live through the ages.”—Hampton Sides, author of Ghost Soldiers and In the Kingdom of Ice “Red Platoon is riveting. Like many who were in either Iraq, Afghanistan, or both, I often read books about the wars reluctantly, because it is hard to capture the essence of the experience. In my view Red Platoon is a brilliant book. Had Clint Romesha depicted the soldiers at Keating as a collection of steely-eyed warriors, their feat would have been impressive. Because he captures the reality of a collection of personalities as diverse as America itself, their courage is truly inspiring.”—General Stanley McChrystal, U.S. Army, Retired “Red Platoon celebrates the most crucial aspect of military operations: the team. Clinton Romesha and the men of Black Knight Troop faced harrowing conditions and a determined enemy during the Battle for COP Keating, and in the process discovered exactly who they are. This account is an important tribute to everyone who fought, and especially to the eight Americans who on that day made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.”—Mark Owen, author of No Easy Day and No Hero “Red Platoon exemplifies the courage and resiliency our country was founded on. Clint is a true brother and a man that I look up to.”—Dakota Meyer, Medal of Honor recipient and author of Into the Fire “The men of Red Platoon and their actions at COP Keating deserve to be known. Clint Romesha's story takes hold from page one and makes you feel every inch of the battle, but it is the bond between soldiers that will stick with you. Red Platoon is on my list of the best books about the Afghan war.”—Kevin Maurer, bestselling coauthor of No Easy Day “A visceral, heart-pounding account of men in close-quarter combat that is simply impossible to put down. Astonishingly intimate and beautifully written. A word of advice: don't start this book if you're planning on doing anything else for the next few hours.”—Scott Anderson, author of Lawrence in Arabia “Danger and death accompany combat. When unexpectedly surrounded and outnumbered by a Taliban enemy force, the stakes soared. Responses by the men of Keating were courageous. Led by Staff Sergeant Clint Romesha, this band of brothers countered with supreme valor. This true story will make you proud of the American soldier. You will not want to put Red Platoon down.”—Colonel Bill Smullen, U.S. Army, Retired About the Author Former Staff Sergeant Clinton L. Romesha enlisted in the Army in 1999. He deployed twice to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, and once to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. At the time of the deadly attack on Combat Outpost (COP) Keating on October 3, 2009, Staff Sergeant Romesha was assigned as a section leader for Bravo Troop, 3-61st Cavalry, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division. He is the recipient of numerous awards and decorations, including the Medal of Honor, which has been received by only twelve others for the heroism they displayed while serving in Iraq or Afghanistan. Romesha separated from the Army in 2011. He lives with his family in North Dakota.

Praise for Imagine Me Gone: "Haslett is one of the country's most talented writers, equipped with a sixth sense for characterization and a limber, unpretentious style. Perhaps his rarest gift is the apprehension of the invisible connections that tie people together...The chapters seamlessly negotiate the passage of time...[Oldest son] Michael comes to dominate the narrative, and Haslett perfectly captures the qualities that make him both seductive and infuriating. He is a motormouth with a fitful imagination and a wicked sense of humor; his nervous energy and 'ceaseless brain' are the battery power on which the whole family runs...Haslett is alert to the reality of others, and the insinuating power of this novel comes from its framing of mental illness as a family affair. Michael's siblings are both wholly convincing characters, shaped by the abiding question of how much, or how little, they are meant to act as their brother's keepers...Most affecting of all is Margaret, who is treated with impatience by her children but possesses a capacious understanding...'What do you fear when you fear everything?' Michael wonders. 'Time passing and not passing. Death and life....This being the condition itself: the relentless need to escape a moment that never ends.' That condition, Haslett's superb novel shows, is an irreducible part of the fabric of Michael's family, as true and defining as the love that binds them." ―Sam Sacks, Wall Street Journal "Ambitious and stirring . . . With Imagine Me Gone, Haslett has reached another level, affording readers a full and luminous depiction of a mind under siege . . . By putting the readers in the same position as [oldest son] Michael's family members, Haslett has pulled off something of a brilliant trick: We feel precisely what they feel-the frustration, the protectiveness, the hope and fear and, yes, the obligation. If Michael is on the page, if his thoughts or actions are laid bare, there's a grueling sense of dread. If he's out of sight, if his thinking and whereabouts are unknown, the dread becomes all but unbearable . . . This is a book refreshingly replete with surprise. It sneaks up on you with dark and winning humor, poignant tenderness, and sentences so astute that they lift the spirit even when they're awfully, awfully sad . . . But make no mistake, the novel's most rewarding surprise is its heart. Again and again, the characters subtly assert that despite the expense of empathy and the predictable disappointment of love, our tendency to care for one another is warranted . . . Even when it's difficult or terrifying or impossible, especially when it's impossible, the impulse to calm those we hold dear is an absolute privilege." ―Bret Anthony Johnston, New York Times Book Review "Imagine Me Gone brilliantly captures the excruciating burden of love and the role it plays in both our survival and our destruction. Haslett suspends a sense of dread over you like an anvil from page one, cutting the rope that holds it in the brutal last act. You'd be a fool to look away." ―Julia Black, Esquire "A richly drawn, Franzenesque canvas . . . Haslett's prose shimmers as he peers unflinchingly at the risks and rewards of fighting for love."―O, The Oprah Magazine "A devastating family drama . . . Haslett's considerable skills as a writer turn domestic conflicts into something more profound . . . In one beautifully rendered scene after another, Haslett shows the family dealing with John's illness and Michael's descent while also managing their own conflicts . . . Imagine Me Gone is a handsome work . . . the sort of writing that is guaranteed to turn heads."―Michael Magras, Miami Herald "Searing . . . Devastating and gorgeously written . . . Pure genius . . . Haslett hits the nail on the head when it comes to describing just how anguishing and time-consuming psychiatric disorders can be, not only for the afflicted but also for the flailing loved ones trying their damnedest-and failing-to find a suitable fix . . . Haslett writes with his eyes wide open about the pitfalls of piled-on medication, the panicked late-night phone calls, the cycles of fear, frustration, and guarded hope. And herein lies the kicker: Because these chapters are told from the alternating perspective of each of the five family members, we believe every word in them and bear witness to just how complex and multi-angled the issue of mental illness can be . . . By signing on with Haslett and his characters we are given the chance to look beyond our minutiae and daily distractions in order to notice the passage of time as experienced by others. We are reminded of what it is like to be truly, if fleetingly, alive."―Alexis Burling, San Francisco Chronicle "Powerful . . . Imagine Me Gone is a study of destructive family dynamics akin to Christina Stead's The Man Who Loved Children or Paul Theroux's The Mosquito Coast. Family here is a trap as filled with love and concern as it is with exasperation and dread. Moving with penetrating wit between the points of view of a father, mother, daughter, and two sons, the novel traces how the vein of mental illness running through this family affects every member . . . Haslett, as he turns the narrative over to first one and then the other, is uncanny in nailing how their differences in personality and temperament guide their respective actions . . . His sharp take on how minor family foibles become conflated with major family dysfunction introduces some unexpected comedy into the proceedings . . . Haslett expertly evokes family behavioral patterns that simply repeat themselves, taxing everyone's patience, before precipitating into panic-inducing crises . . . With its fugue of voices, each contributing a vital slant to the action, Imagine Me Gone offers rigorous formal pleasures. Yet while flirting with narrative artifice, Haslett stays keenly aware that in this family there is no explanation 'sufficient to account for the events . . . Lives weren't works of art.' In acknowledging that, Imagine Me Gone respects the mystery of how things happen the way they happen, while brilliantly conjuring the tide-like pull with which dreaded possibilities become harsh inevitability."―Michael Upchurch, Boston Globe "Drawing vivid scenes and compelling characters from a tragic realism, Haslett intimately connects the reader to his characters' inner lives . . . A rare, complex story [with] exceptional storytelling and poignant insights [and] uplifting moments of humor, kindness, and love." ―Don Oldenburg, USA Today "An extraordinary blend of precision, beauty, and tenderness . . . Haslett's prose rises to the challenge, lushly capturing the dense fog of depression that blankets John [the father] and occasionally lifts just enough to reveal the 'beast' moving in on him. But Haslett really shows his chops channeling [oldest son] Michael's amped-up voice . . . I got caught up in the beauty of Haslett's sentences and the lives of these oh-so-human people bound by shared duress and cycles of hope. Haslett's signature achievement in Imagine Me Gone is to temper the harrowing with the humorous while keeping a steady bead on the pathos. You want sympathetic characters? You want a narrative that showcases love as a many-splendored thing capacious enough to encompass stalwart, long-suffering spouses, loyal siblings, suffocatingly obsessive crushes, and casual, noncommittal relationships (both gay and straight) that morph as if by magic into soul-sustenance? You want writing that thrums with anguish and compassion? It's all here."―Heller McAlpin, NPR "Smart and polyphonic...Haslett is that rare writer whose art can console without ceasing to be art." ―Boris Kachka, New York "Adam Haslett's brilliant second novel captures two troubled minds with rare empathy, realism, and insight . . . [Oldest son] Michael is an utterly enchanting character . . . His every riff on music, feminism, and racism is seductive to the reader . . . It's a memorable, funny, and ultimately heartbreaking trip."―Mark Athitakis, Minneapolis Star Tribune "Haslett's second novel depicts, with candor and tenderness, a family's struggle with the effects of mental illness . . . Especially moving is Haslett's ability to anatomize the ways that a family contorts itself around one member's struggles."―The New Yorker "Haslett's second novel is a potent tale of love and loss . . . By its heartbreaking conclusion, we've come to know intimately the joys and struggles of each member of this troubled family." ―Jane Ciabattari, BBC "An ambitious book about music, anxiety, and a family determined to stick together after fracturing loss, Imagine Me Gone is proof that realistic stories have immense power." ―Maddie Crum, Huffington Post "Expansive and precise." ―Megan O'Grady, Vogue "Compelling . . . An achingly realistic portrait of a family sucked into-and dry by-a mentally-ill loved one's spiral into darkness."―Jenny Comita, W Magazine "There are some books, and this is one, that grab you in the first paragraphs and don't let go, even when the last page has been read. Haslett is certainly not the first novelist to broach the topic of depression...But he's done so with such a fresh voice and playfulness of form...that the resulting novel begs a reevaluation of how we view and cope with tragedy." ―Keziah Weir, Elle "Michael is an exceptional character...Haslett is especially adept at depicting the obsessive male psyche in the midst of a meltdown. But as this is also a series of deft vignettes of paternal, maternal and filial love, you too will likely be moved to recall your family with a new fondness and understanding. ―Edward Nawotka, Dallas Morning News "A moving novel about how love and frustration shape the family dynamics of those affected by psychological instability . . . [Oldest son] Michael emerges endearingly precocious and quirky, recalling the children of J. D. Salinger's short stories . . . Imagine Me Gone is a character novel to be savored for its complex and empathetic portrait of family. Michael is a compelling character, witty and heartbreaking. This is not a novel driven by plot but by its relentless tides of sorrow and hope. Like his family, you'll soon see the inevitable end but only read faster as it hurtles closer." ―Kelsey Ronan, St. Louis Post-Dispatch "Stunning...Beautifully written and filled with astonishing insight...Imagine Me Gone fulfills its considerable ambitions. It touches greatness, and its seamless interleaving of the deeply personal with the widely collective is one reason...Haslett's particular talent is to fuse the high to the low, the sardonic to the profound, cultural critique to human feeling, to achieve a seamless, polished whole. Imagine Me Gone accomplishes a complex feat." ―Melissa H. Pierson, Barnes & Noble Review "Although depression and anxiety are foes that many authors have explored in the pages of literature, it is hard to think of a novel that presents as nuanced and intimate a portrait of these diseases as Adam Haslett's Imagine Me Gone. Told from the perspectives of each of the five members of the family, the novel offers a shockingly raw portrayal of how mental illness afflicts individuals as well as families, sometimes tearing them apart but also binding them closer. But to simply label this as a book about depression-however expert its portrayal-minimizes what Haslett has achieved. At its core, this is a pensive examination of the very human struggle to connect and find peace-with others and with ourselves-and the nature of time and how it passes. Haslett's keen eye for and rigorous examination of the intricate messiness of family dynamics calls to mind Jonathan Franzen's twenty-first-century masterpiece on intergenerational dysfunction, The Corrections, although Haslett's approach, while at times playful, is ultimately more tender and sympathetic. Imagine Me Gone is immensely personal and private, yet feels universal and ultimately essential in its scope. In its pages, Haslett has laid bare the agonies and ecstasies of the human condition and the familial ties that bind. The end result is a book that you do not read so much as feel, deeply and intensely, in the very marrow of your bones."―Stephenie Harrison, BookPage "In this moving novel, Haslett explores how the profound depression of one person reverberates through an entire family. This beautiful, tragic, engrossing depiction of a web of emotional fault lines should win Haslett an even wider readership."―National Book Review "We come to know the family at the center of Adam Haslett's powerful new novel as intimately as if they were our own . . . Imagine Me Gone is the story of this family across the decades-a family that is bonded and riven and bonded again by mental illness . . . [Oldest son] Michael is the center of the novel and certainly Haslett's most original character . . . For the reader, as for his family, Michael is strangely dear, utterly maddening, and ultimately heartbreaking."―Tom Beer, Newsday "Moving and courageous." ―Danielle Groen, National Post "With skill and subtlety... Imagine Me Gone sweeps the reader into its characters' worlds and makes us reflect on our own lives. It might be the best American novel about a middle-class family since Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections."―Max Lui, The Independent UK "Haslett deftly explores the many different shapes and forms that depression can...his strength lies in encapsulating the darkness that enshrouds the main characters' brains by making tangible the hopelessness that depression often induces in its victims...Imagine Me Gone paints a brand new, innovative picture of depression that demands to be felt." ―Mila Gauvin II, The Harvard Crimson "A book everyone can identify with . . . Adam Haslett has described a family that is true, funny, and tragic. Imagine Me Gone is beautifully conceived and composed."―Tracy Sherlock, Vancouver Sun "Imagine Me Gone is a family saga reminiscent at times of Anne Enright's The Green Road. It is raw, tender and hilarious. In the writing of Michael, the Pulitzer Prize-shortlisted Haslett lets rip to dazzling effect: a family therapy session, related by Michael in the form of an Army incident report, is a showstopper. But the voices of the novel's other narrators are equally involving, and the psychological insight piercing. True, the emotional demands are considerable. But the investment more than pays off."―Stephanie Cross, Daily Mail UK "(A) skilfully written and harrowing tale. Any reader dealing with mental illness in the family will immediately recognise the place where love and obligation meet constant anxiety and intermittent despair. This novel plants its flag somewhere in the middle ground between Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections and Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey into Night." ―Kerryn Goldsworthy, The Sydney Morning Herald (Australia) "Haslett has a great gift for capturing the strikingly different inner worlds of his characters and rendering them in beautiful prose. As in Faulkner, each of the voices emerges from somewhere between speech, thought and writing, but here the characters are articulate enough that we can believe that the words are theirs. There is a lot about honour and care here: about what it means to honour and care for both ourselves and those we love. Haslett's prose, so finely adapted for each of the characters, seems to do just this, honouring the living and the dead and rendering life precious enough that Alec, falling in love, can find that the gift of the present moment 'set me afloat, leaving me light-headed and close to joy'."―Lara Feigel, The Guardian UK "Haslett has already produced a quiveringly sensitive body of work that stands as a moving testament to the persistence of love in the face of the adversities occasioned by diseases of the brain -- a love personified in Imagine Me Gone by Margaret, who learns of John's condition during their engagement but marries him anyway, and by Alec, who is all too aware of Michael's increasingly precarious state of mind but longs to save him... With his crystalline sentences and uncanny knack for inhabiting the minds of his characters, channeling their distinct voices with the otherworldly insight of a spiritual medium, Haslett has become a master." ―Kevin Nance, Poets & Writers "The characters are richly developed and rendered with an incredible emotion that makes this an intense and devastating story of pain, anguish, and ultimately healing."―Jean Moore, Ventura County Star "Haslett has created a distinctive and winning voice and character [in Michael] that transforms what might have otherwise been just-another-accomplished-literary-novel about an American family's tragicomic goings on into something far more affecting and beguiling. ... The result is a tour-de-force of manic brilliance, both zealously funny and painfully sad."―Randy Boyagoda, Financial Times UK "The quality of Haslett's character portrayals, his language, and his scene construction in Imagine Me Gone are apparent enough, but the way you know this book is going to stick around for a while is that not one word is wasted." ―Rich Smith, The Stranger "Breathtaking....Imagine Me Gone glides over unfathomable depths of feeling. Haslett does the tough work of affirming love, while acknowledging that some wounds run too deep for love alone to heal." ―Charles McRory, Daily Mississippian "In Imagine Me Gone, Haslett describes the state of [the father] John's troubled mind with compassion and artistry. But even more moving is his characterization of Michael, the eccentric eldest child who has inherited John's disease . . . As a meditation on mental illness and its reverberations, the novel is generous and honest."―Rachel Giese, Chatelaine "Imagine Me Gone is beautiful, it's terrifying, it's intimate and epic, and it's devastating -- one of the great books about loss and mourning and the ineluctable laws that govern the political economy of families. I cannot describe the force or the depth of its accomplishment except to say that this magnificent work of art has overwhelmed me and broken my heart."―Tony Kushner, Pulitzer Prize winner for Angels in America "Imagine Me Gone is literature of the highest order. It manages to be both dreadfully sad and hilariously funny all at once. It is luminous with love."―Peter Carey, Man Booker Prize winner for True History of the Kelly Gang "The family Adam Haslett has created in Imagine Me Gone feels as true and as complex as our own actual families are, and lays nearly as deep a claim upon our love and loyalty. The eldest son, Michael, is simply one of the finest characters I've ever come across in fiction. This beautiful, tragic novel will haunt you for the rest of your life and you will be all the more human for it."―Paul Harding, Pulitzer Prize winner for Tinkers "This novel about family, love, forgotten music, and a despair that proves unbearable has one of the most harrowing and sustained descriptions of a mind in obsessive turmoil and disrepair that I've ever read. Haslett is a marvelously lucid and intelligent writer." ―Joy Williams, Pulitzer Prize finalist for The Quick and the Dead "Imagine Me Gone is a beautiful, elegant, harrowing story of the dissonant music of family, a poignant book that makes you eager, once more, for the complications of the world."―Colum McCann, National Book Award winner for Let the Great World Spin "A captivating portrait of the ways depression and anxiety mark both the afflicted and everyone who loves them. Haslett has an uncanny talent for shifting between the voices and sensibilities of his characters. It is with Michael that his gifts are most in evidence. These anarchic chapters are by turns mordantly funny and heartbreaking. The forces of love and loyalty that bind the siblings together rescue Imagine Me Gone from all consuming sadness. Haslett understands the power of sentiment to move without ever becoming maudlin or arch, leading us down a dark path at the end of which a light of hope still burns."―Patrick Flanery, The Spectator UK "Suffice it to say that Imagine Me Gone is a complex, nuanced portrait of a family dealing complex, nuanced issues. Haslett's story touches on numerous topics-growing up, heredity, familial interaction, masculinity, and perhaps above all mental illness. Haslett's portrayal of the family's eldest son is a thing of beauty. Central is the question of how we help those we love and how our "help" is shaped by our own interests and the limits of our own understanding. His story illuminates. It will stick with you."―Frank Valish, Under the Radar "Imagine Me Gone has a moral compass installed so deeply that it never has to announce itself or pause to moralize . . . It's if its author's sensibility has entered Jonathan Franzen's airspace with some daredevil if psychically grounded skywriting . . . Haslett's language has been scoured of argot, and treats the platitudes of therapy like death threats. All five family members tell this story, not in turn but compellingly in sequence, in their own words, words so pitch-perfectly their own that they scarcely need physical description to walk right off the page . . . Much of Haslett's deep seriousness is wrapped in the language of high comedy, black as it is . . . Haslett's infinitely subtle, insinuating novel is a work of art."―Tim Pfaff, Bay Area Reporter "An aching, psychologically astute novel . . . Michael is the animating spirit of the book and its central conundrum, a figure at once half-deranged and brilliant, stymied and restless, utterly self-absorbed and yet pseudo-empathetic to the point of pathology . . . Imagine Me Gone confronts the moment when the motion finally stops, when the mind's wheels spin and squeal against the skull until a person breaks apart, his family looking on helplessly, haunting him and haunted by him."―Jessica Winter, BookForum "For all its elegiac tone, one of the most striking features of Imagine Me Gone is the wicked humor that surfaces in portions of Michael's narrative. Whether he's describing a nightmarish transatlantic crossing or recounting a group counseling session, he's skilled at skewering life's absurdities with sharp wit. For all the darkness that swirls around him, his winning personality makes him the novel's most appealing character." ―Harvey Freedenberg, Shelf Awareness "A triumphant and transcendent novel of family and the things we pass down through the generations . . . With his extraordinarily economical and observant prose, Haslett fully inhabits each of these characters. By the time the children are grown, you feel as if you've matured beside them-as familiar with their tics and emotional intricacies as your own kin. The book is tender, often beautiful, sometimes emotionally searing, and, at times, surprisingly funny. [Oldest son] Michael's chapters can be particularly hilarious . . . But they are more than comic relief. These endearing sections of Imagine Me Gone, beside chapters detailing his siblings' and parents' difficulties of dealing with his mental illness, mirror the inevitable ups and downs of love and family."―Andrew Travers, Aspen Times "This touching chronicle of love and pain traces half a century in a family of five, from the parents' engagement in 1963 through a father's and son's psychological torments and a final crisis....Each chapter is told by one of the family's five voices, shifting the point of view on shared troubles, showing how they grow away from one another without losing touch....Haslett shapes these characters with such sympathy, detail, and skill that reading about them is akin to living among them....As vivid and moving as the novel is, it's not because Haslett strives to surprise but because he's so mindful and expressive of how much precious life there is in both normalcy and anguish."―Kirkus (Starred Review) "Haslett narrates this soaring, heartrending novel from the revolving points of view of each family member, plumbing the psychologies of his characters. The result is a polyphonic page-turner that slowly reveals its orbit around Michael, the eldest son. Michael's troubled psyche, an inheritance from his father, proves to be the troubling linchpin at the center of this intensely personal work." ―Booklist (Starred Review) "Haslett's latest is a sprawling, ambitious epic about a family bound not only by familial love, but by that sense of impending emergency that hovers around Michael, who has inherited his father John's abiding depression and anxiety....This is a book that tenderly and luminously deals with mental illness and with the life of the mind....In Michael, Haslett has created a most memorable character. This is a hypnotic and haunting novel." ―Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Praise for Union Atlantic: "The first great novel of the new century that takes the new century as its subject...It's big and ambitious, like novels used to be. It's about us, now. All of us."―Esquire "Adam Haslett may be our F. Scott Fitzgerald...A profound, strikingly intelligent story."―Washington Post "Exceedingly well written...a high-spirited, slyly astute exploration of our great bottoming out."―The Boston Globe Praise for You Are Not a Stranger Here: "Haslett is an eloquent, precise miniaturist, and his characters' struggles with their own assumptions collectively provide a fascinating snapshot of life during the era of Prozac, when new ways of thinking about emotion have forced us to adjust our notion of identity and even, perhaps, of grace."―New Yorker "Spectacular. . . . You should buy this book, you should read it, and you should admire it. . . . [It] is the herald of a phenomenal career."―The New York Times Book Review "Haslett possesses a rich assortment of literary gifts: an instinctive empathy for his characters and an ability to map their inner lives in startling detail; a knack for graceful, evocative prose; and a determination to trace the hidden arithmetic of relationships."―New York Times "Extraordinary. . . . Frighteningly tender. . . . Displays an order as natural as a tree branch in winter-lithe and achingly austere."―The Boston Globe "The greatest of this novel's many strengths is Haslett's uncanny gift for inhabiting the consciousness of five enormously complex characters....Imagine Me Gone is not a traditionally plotted novel but a psychological character study, written with the kind of patient intricacy one associates with 19th-century realists like the Russian masters or George Eliot - or, in contemporary American literature, Jonathan Franzen (Haslett's former teacher).....Adam Haslett is a writer of prodigious gifts, the greatest among them a deep compassion for his most flawed characters, and the courage to go with them into the abyss and bring their stories back to us with uncommon grace and boundless empathy."―Ed Tarkington, Nashville Scene "Haslett proves frightengly capable in capturing the sense of duty and purpose in spreading the gospel of a beloved band that's typical of the musically obsessed, and through the painful course of the novel, cuts a sharp figure of their hearts."―Dylan Owens, The Denver Post "In his devastating and gorgeously written novel, Haslett hits the nail on the head when it comes to describing how anguishing psychiatric disorders can be."―San Francisco Chronicle "[Imagine Me Gone] shifts confidently between heartbreak and cathartic laughter...with a calm, forensic mastery."―Wall Street Journal "20 Books that Defined Our Year" "At once the most beautifully written and yet most harrowing novel of the year so far....Imagine Me Gone is that rare thing in fiction: a book that breathes fresh life into the oldest story of all, that of the dysfunctional family, and invests it with a powerful sense of the love that binds such families together, for good and ill." ―Chicago Tribune "This book is tragic, no question - but it's also poignant, tender and funny." ―Mary Ann Gwinn, Seattle Times "Succeeds on just about every level that a book can...It's a stunning novel, written with compassion, and it ends where it has to-Haslett is a fearless writer, refreshingly unafraid to confront darkness. That's not to say there's no light in Imagine Me Gone; it is, in the end, a book about love and about survival. And it's unquestionably one of the truest and most beautiful novels of 2016." ―Michael Schaub, LitHub About the Author Adam Haslett is the author of the short story collection You Are Not a Stranger Here, which was a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist, and the novel Union Atlantic, winner of the Lambda Literary Award and shortlisted for the Commonwealth Prize. His books have been translated into eighteen languages, and he has received the Berlin Prize from the American Academy in Berlin, the PEN/Malamud Award, and fellowships from the Guggenheim and Rockefeller Foundations. He lives in New York City.
