"Set in the Pacific Northwest in the jittery, jacked-up early 1990s, Shelter in Place, by one of America's most thrillingly defiant contemporary authors, is a stylish literary novel about the hereditary nature of mental illness, the fleeting intensity of youth, the obligations of family, and the dramatic consequences of love. Joseph March, a twenty-one-year-old working class kid from Seattle, is on top of the world. He has just graduated college and his future beckons, unencumbered, limitless, magnificent. Joe's life implodes when he starts to suffer the symptoms of bipolar disorder, and, not long after, his mother kills a man she's never met with a hammer. Joe moves to White Pine, Washington, where his mother is serving time and his father has set up house. He is followed by Tess Wolff, a fiercely independent woman with whom he has fallen in love. The lives of Joe, Tess, and Joe's father fall into the slow rhythm of daily prison visits followed by beer and pizza at a local bar. Meanwhile, Anne-Marie March, Joe's mother, is gradually becoming a local heroine—many see her crime as a furious, exasperated act of righteous rebellion. Tess, too, has fallen under her spell. Spurred on by Anne-Marie's example, Tess enlists Joe in a secret, violent plan that will forever change their lives."

A renowned psychologist and expert on human behavior presents a proven approach to unhook from negative feelings and behaviors so you can lead a healthier, more fulfilling life. Whether it's getting ahead at work, becoming a more patient parent or partner, or losing that pesky ten pounds, we all have things we want to achieve in life. And yet, despite our good intentions, we often get tripped up by self-defeating habits and emotions. Why do some people succeed in reaching their loftiest goals while the rest stumble? In Emotional Agility, Susan David provides the revolutionary answer to this question. Challenging the popular belief that positive thinking is the key to fulfillment, she explains that negative thoughts and feelings are normal. Negativity doesn't derail emotionally agile people. Instead, they know how to unhook from, accept, and harness these experiences so they can focus on what really matters. Drawing on more than twenty years of research and the latest insights from behavioral science, David shows that being emotionally agile is not about suppressing negative emotions or fixing "bad" behavior ; instead, it's about facing our inner selves with courage and compassion, identifying and acting on our values, and remaining curious and engaged with the world around us.
