You may not know it, but you ve met Augusten Burroughs. You ve seen him on the street, in bars, on the subway, at restaurants: a twenty-something guy, nice suit, works in advertising. Regular. Ordinary. But when the ordinary person had two drinks, Augusten was circling the drain by having twelve; when the ordinary person went home at midnight, Augusten never went home at all. Loud, distracting ties, automated wake-up calls, and cologne on the tongue could only hide so much for so long. At the request (well, it wasn t really a request) of his employers, Augusten lands in rehab, where his dreams of group therapy with Robert Downey, Jr., are immediately dashed by the grim reality of fluorescent lighting and paper hospital slippers. But when Augusten is forced to examine himself, something actually starts to click, and that s when he finds himself in the worst trouble of all. Because when his thirty days are up, he has to return to his same drunken life and live it sober. What follows is a memoir that s as moving as it is funny, as heartbreaking as it is real. Dry is the story of love, loss, and Starbucks as a higher power. AUGUSTEN BURROUGHS is the author of This is How, A Wolf at the Table, You Better Not Cry, Possible Side Effects, Magical Thinking, Running with Scissors, and Sellevision. He lives in New York City. 7

9 PICADOR APRIL 2013 Desert America A Journey Through Our Most Divided Landscape Rubén Martínez FROM ONE OF OUR FOREMOST CHRONICLERS OF MIGRATION, A BRILLIANTLY ILLUMINATING PORTRAIT OF THE TWENTY-FIRST-CENTURY WEST SOCIAL SCIENCE / HUMAN GEOGRAPHY Picador 4/30/ $18.00/$20.00 Can. Paperback / softback 352 pages Carton Qty: 24 Second Serial, Book Club, Electronic, Reprint Hardcover ISBN: Ebook ISBN: Crossing Over: A Mexican Family on the Migrant Trail 4/ Paperback / softback $18.00/$20.00 Can. The economic boom was writ nowhere as large as on the West. Over the past decade, the most iconic of American landscapes has undergone a political and demographic upheaval comparable only to the opening of the frontier. In Desert America, a work of powerful reportage and memoir, acclaimed author Rubén Martínez explores a world of extremes: drug addiction flourishing in the shadow of some of America s richest zip codes, a race war near the banks of the Rio Grande, and Native Americans hunting down Mexican migrants crossing the most desolate stretch of the border. Desert America details Martínez s own love for this most contested region and reveals that the great frontier is now in the forefront of the vast disparities that are redefining the very idea of America. It s hard to imagine a more engaging and illuminating chronicle of the contemporary West...A nuanced, conflicted, poetic meditation on an endlessly elusive subject. San Francisco Chronicle Deeply moving and insightful...a memoir that also manages to be an excellent work of reportage...martínez writes with the kind of profound respect all too rare among the legions of Western writers. Los Angeles Times Desert America is an uninsulated wire running through the rough-edged Southwest, a land still being born. First comes shock, then you keep buzzing for page after electric page.

10 PICADOR APRIL 2013 PAPERBACK REISSUE Crossing Over A Mexican Family on the Migrant Trail Rubén Martínez WITH A NEW AFTERWORD, THIS IMMIGRATION CLASSIC SHOWS HOW AMERICA IS BEING RE-IMAGINED BY ITS UNINVITED, ITS DISRESPECTED, ITS INVISIBLE (LOS ANGELES TIMES). SOCIAL SCIENCE / EMIGRATION & IMMIGRATION Picador 4/30/ $18.00/$20.00 Can. Paperback / softback 368 pages Carton Qty: 24 Includes 13 black-and-white photographs throughout Trade Paperback ISBN: Hardcover ISBN: New Introduction Co-Promotion with Desert America Academic Marketing Campaign In the decade since Crossing Over first appeared, illegal immigration from Mexico has only become more fraught and more lethal, the rallying cry of nativist politics and a pawn in the war on terror. Yet the U.S.-Mexican border remains one of the most permeable boundaries in the world, breached daily by Mexicans in search of work. Thousands die crossing the line, and those who reach the other side are branded as illegals, undocumented and unprotected. Following the exodus of the Chávez clan, an extended Mexican family who lost three sons in a tragic border accident, Martínez traces the migrants progress from their small southern-mexican town of Cherán to California, Wisconsin, and Missouri. Far from joining the melting pot, Martínez argues, the seven million migrants in the U.S. are creating a new culture that is dramatically altering both Mexico and the United States. Hailed as valuable, passionate, and terrific, Crossing Over puts a human face on the phenomenon of Mexican immigration, and remains a beautifully written classic of our time. Desert America: A Journey Through Our Most Divided Landscape 4/ Paperback / softback $18.00/$20.00 Can. Martínez s portrait is a rich counterpoint to the simple patterns a demographer might draw. The New York Times Book Review To read Crossing Over is to read the story of America, to understand the dynamic that renews the strength of the American Dream. Martínez has depicted a deep, enduring commonality that may change the way we understand immigration. Chicago Tribune RUBÉN MARTÍNEZ, an Emmy-winning journalist and poet, is the author of Desert America and The New Americans. He lives in Los Angeles, where he holds the Fletcher Jones Chair in Literature and Writing at Loyola Marymount University. 10

Leo would spend the next five years in a coke processing plant, shoveling coal, lugging bricks, mixing mortar, and battling the relentless calculus of hunger that governed the labor colony: one shovel load of coal is worth one gram of bread. Internationally hailed as a masterpiece, The Hunger Angel calls upon Herta Müller s unique combination of poetic intensity and dispassionate precision to conjure the distorted world of the labor camp in all its physical and moral absurdity. She has given Leo the language to express the inexpressible, as hunger sharpens his senses into an acuity that is both hallucinatory and profound. In scene after disorienting scene, the most ordinary objects accrue tender poignancy as they acquire new purpose a gramophone box serves as a suitcase, a handkerchief becomes a talisman, an enormous piece of casing pipe functions as a lovers trysting place. The heart is reduced to a pump, while coal, sand, and snow take on a will of their own. Hunger becomes an insatiable angel who haunts the camp, but also a bare-knuckled sparring partner, delivering blows that keep Leo feeling the rawest connection to life. Müller has distilled Leo s struggle into words of breathtaking intensity that take us on a journey far beyond the Gulag and into the depths of one man s soul.

He turns out to be surprisingly youthful, handsome, and charming quite unlike his reputation as dry and intimidating. Everyone is soon eating out of his hands. So, even sooner, is Nikki, the foundation s attractive and efficient organizer. Meanwhile, in a remote villa at the other end of the island, Nikki s old friend Georgie has rashly agreed to spend a furtive horizontal weekend with a notorious schemer, who has characteristically failed to turn up. Trapped there with her instead is a pompous, balding individual called Dr. Norman Wilfred, who has lost his whereabouts, his luggage, his temper, and increasingly all sense of reality indeed, everything he possesses other than the text of a well-traveled lecture on the scientific organization of science. In a spiraling farce about upright academics, gilded captains of industry, ambitious climbers, and dotty philanthropists, Michael Frayn, the god of farce (Entertainment Weekly), tells a story of personal and professional disintegration, probing his eternal theme of how we know what we know even as he delivers us to the outer limits of hilarity. A masterly crafted farce...under Frayn s peerless choreography, the comedy gods of mistaken identity are having a mad romp. Frayn is so devilishly good at clicking the pieces into place that watching him build his contraption is its own entertainment. Entertainment Weekly A paragon of academic satire, this novel is also a shining example of the drama of mistaken identities...like much of Frayn s work, Skios is a virtuoso performance, and very funny, but underneath it all is a melancholy truth: many people are unhappy with who they are and wouldn t mind being mistaken for someone else. The New Yorker MICHAEL FRAYN is the author of ten novels, including the bestselling Headlong, which was a New York Times Editors Choice selection and a Booker Prize finalist, and Spies, which received the Whitbread Fiction Award. He has also written a memoir, My Father s Fortune, and fifteen plays, among them Noises Off and Copenhagen, which won three Tony Awards. He lives just south of London. 17

When he died in the grandest house in New Orleans sixty-nine years later, he was among the richest, most powerful men in the world. Working his way up from a roadside fruit peddler to conquering the United Fruit Company, Zemurray became a symbol of the best and worst of the United States: proof that America is the land of opportunity, but also a classic example of the corporate pirate who treats foreign nations as the backdrop for his adventures. Zemurray lived one of the great untold stories of the last hundred years. Starting with nothing but a cart of freckled bananas, he built a sprawling empire of banana cowboys, mercenary soldiers, Honduran peasants, CIA agents, and American statesmen. From hustling on the docks of New Orleans to overthrowing Central American governments and precipitating the bloody thirty-six year Guatemalan Civil War, the Banana Man lived a monumental and sometimes dastardly life. Rich Cohen s brilliant historical profile The Fish That Ate the Whale unveils Zemurray as a hidden kingmaker and capitalist revolutionary, driven by an indomitable will to succeed. Rich Cohen books constitute a genre unto themselves: pungent, breezy, vividly written psychodramas. The New York Times Book Review This is a rollicking but brilliantly researched book about one of the most fascinating charactyers of the twentieth century.

In 1916, the Irish nationalist Roger Casement was hanged by the British government for treason. Casement had dedicated his life to improving the plight of oppressed peoples around the world. But when he dared to draw a parallel between the injustices he witnessed in African and American colonies and those committed by the British in Northern Ireland, he became involved in a cause that led to his imprisonment and execution. Ultimately, the scandals surrounding Casement s trial and eventual hanging marred his image to such a degree that his pioneering human rights work wasn t fully reexamined until the 1960s. This is a fascinating fictional account of this extraordinary man in the original and dynamic style of Nobel Laureate Mario Vargas Llosa. This vibrant reimagining of history is also a brilliant exploration of conflicting moral claims. Who are the oppressors? Who are the truth-tellers? As always, Vargas Llosa remains a fiendishly clever teacher. The Washington Post It s easy to share Vargas Llosa s enthusiasm for Casement as he retraces the man s daring and difficult journeys through Africa and South America. The New York Times Book Review The Dream of the Celt fully succeeds in capturing the complexity of the man...vargas Llosa has produced an epic apologia for this most sympathetic of traitors. The Daily Beast MARIO VARGAS LLOSA was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in Peru s foremost writer, his many works include The Feast of the Goat, The Bad Girl, Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter, The War of the End of the World, and The Storyteller. He lives in London. EDITH GROSSMAN has translated the works of the Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez, among others. Her version of Miguel de Cervantes s Don Quixote is considered to be the finest translation of the book in the English language. 19

I went to get the letters for our friends, and couldn t help but feel a little envious, I didn t expect anything for myself. And suddenly there was my name, and, as if it was alive, your handwriting. In 1946, after five years as a prisoner first as a Soviet POW in Nazi concentration camps, then as a deportee (falsely accused of treason) in the Arctic Gulag twenty-nine-year-old Lev Mishchenko unexpectedly received a letter from Sveta, the sweetheart he had hardly dared hope was still alive. Amazingly, over the next eight years the lovers managed to exchange more than 1,500 messages, and even to smuggle Sveta herself into the camp for secret meetings. Their recently discovered correspondence is the only known real-time record of life in Stalin s Gulag, unmediated and uncensored. Orlando Figes, the great storyteller of modern Russian historians (Financial Times), draws on Lev and Sveta s letters as well as KGB archives and recent interviews to brilliantly reconstruct the broader world in which their story unfolded. With the powerful narrative drive of a novel, Just Send Me Word reveals a passion and endurance that triumphed over the tragic forces of history.

The recipient of the Wolfson History Prize and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, among others, Figes is a professor of history at Birkbeck College, University of London. 29

Paperback / softback 352 pages Carton Qty: 24 Plus one 8-page color photograph insert Hardcover ISBN: Ebook ISBN: Before Marie Tharp s groundbreaking work in the 1950s, the floor of the ocean was a mystery then, as now, we knew less about the ocean than we did about outer space. In a time when women were held back by the casually sexist atmosphere of mid-twentieth century academia a time when trained geologists like Tharp were routinely relegated to the role of secretary or assistant Tharp s work would completely change the world s understanding of our planet s evolution. By transforming dry data into beautifully detailed maps that laid the groundwork for proving the then-controversial theory of continental drift, Tharp, along with her lifelong partner, Bruce Heezen, upended scientific consensus and ushered in a new era in geology and oceanography. A playful, wildly thoughtful writer (Oprah.com), Hali Felt vividly captures the romance of scientific discovery and brings to life this strong-willed woman living according to her own rules, defying the constraints of her time (The Washington Post). HALI FELT teaches writing at the University of Pittsburgh. She received her MFA from the University of Iowa and has completed residencies at the MacDowell Colony, the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, and Portland Writers in the Schools. In the past, she has reported for the Columbia Journalism Review and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. She lives in Pittsburgh. 30

Paperback / softback 496 pages Carton Qty: in W in H Includes two 8-page black-and-white photograph sections Hardcover ISBN: Ebook ISBN: The end of WWII in Europe is remembered as a time when cheering crowds filled the streets. But the reality was quite different. Across Europe, landscapes had been ravaged, entire cities razed and more than thirty million people had been killed in the war. The institutions we now take for granted such as police, media, transport, local, and national government were either entirely absent or compromised. Crime rates soared, economies collapsed, and whole populations hovered on the brink of starvation. In Savage Continent, Keith Lowe describes a continent where individuals Germans and collaborators were rounded up and summarily executed, where concentration camps were reopened, and violent anti-semitism was reborn. In some of the greatest acts of ethnic cleansing the world has ever seen, tens of millions were expelled from their ancestral homelands. Savage Continent is the story of post WWII Europe, from the end of the war right to the establishment of an uneasy stability at the end of the 1940s. Based principally on primary sources from a dozen countries, Savage Continent is the chronicle of a world gone mad, the standard history of post WWII Europe for years to come. Lowe s work, thoroughly researched and written with scrupulous objectivity, promises to be the year s best book on European history. Financial Times (London) Deeply harrowing. Moving, measured and provocative. A compelling picture of a continent physically and morally brutalized by slaughter. The Sunday Times (London) Graphic and chilling. This excellent book paints a little-known and frightening picture of a continent in the embrace of lawlessness and chaos.

Through alternating perspectives, Pylväinen captures each singular Rovaniemi voice deftly, seamlessly, delivering their individual struggles both in and outside of the church. She follows both the siblings who remain in the church into their adulthood and those who leave, and explores the difficulties that each group faces. In this dazzling, highly praised debut, Pylväinen shows us the remarkable distances and differences that love and faith can sustain, and those they cannot. In some ways, the Rovaniemi family is like ordinary American families. But the questions about faith how it binds the family together but also mutates and divides it elevate it beyond the confines of the traditional domestic novel and into a resonant and magical work of imagination.

Through their converging narratives, the award-winning investigative reporter Seth Rosenfeld tells a dramatic and disturbing story of FBI surveillance, illegal break-ins, infiltration, planted news stories, poison-pen letters, and secret detention lists.

35 PICADOR JULY 2013 HHhH A Novel Laurent Binet; Translated from the French by Sam Taylor A NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW EDITORS CHOICE A literary tour de force...a gripping novel that brings us closer to history as it actually happened. Alan Riding, The New York Times Book Review FICTION / LITERARY Picador 7/23/ $16.00/$18.50 Can. Paperback / softback 336 pages Carton Qty: 24 Brit.: Harvill Secker Trans., dram.: Editions Grasset 1st ser., audio: FSG Hardcover ISBN: Ebook ISBN: NEXT Selection National Print and Online Coverage Online Advertising Outreach to Leading Literary, Historical, and Jewish-Interest Sites Reading Group Promotion and Online Reading Group Guide Picador and Website Feature HHhH: Himmlers Hirn heisst Heydrich, or Himmler s brain is called Heydrich. The most lethal man in Hitler s cabinet, Reinhard Heydrich seemed indestructible until two exiled operatives, a Slovak and a Czech, killed him and changed the course of History. In Laurent Binet s mesmerizing debut, we follow Jozef Gabćik and Jan Kubiš from their dramatic escape from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia, to their fatal attack on Heydrich and their own brutal deaths. A seamless blend of truth, memory, and Binet s own remarkable imagination, HHhH is at once thrilling and intellectually engrossing a fast-paced novel of the Second World War that is also a profound meditation on the debt we owe to history. For readers of Roberto Bolaño Marvelous...This is characteristic Binet prose pulsing with life, lit by a wisp of dry humor, fully imagined. Carolyn Kellog, Los Angeles Times Binet has threaded his novel with a contemporary story, which is the drama of the book s own making...the tone is clever, witty, casually postmodern...captivating. James Wood, The New Yorker Brilliant...HHhH succeeds both as fiction and as history...it also has a hell of a plot. San Francisco Chronicle One of the best and most original novels I ve read in years...hhhh is paced like a thriller, in which the endgame is the fate of the world. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel LAURENT BINET is a professor at the University of Paris III, where he lectures on French literature. The winner of the prestigious Prix Goncourt du Premier Roman in 2010, HHhH is his first novel. 35

The Boston Globe Brilliant...As slim and revealing as a microscope slide...over eight echo-laden chapters, Cusk moves through her period of aftermath, from agitation to recrimination, to numbness, to new stirrings. Elle Like Virginia Woolf, Cusk is a digressive but strategic essayist...this book is a solace to anybody who has dwelt in post-familial wastes.

39 PICADOR JULY 2013 A Pimp's Notes A Novel Giorgio Faletti; Translated from the Italian by Antony Shugaar FROM THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF I KILL COMES AN EPIC NEW MYSTERY SET AGAINST THE SEEDY UNDERWORLD, POLITICAL CORRUPTION, AND MORAL AMBIGUITY OF MILAN IN THE 1970S. FICTION / CRIME Picador 7/30/ $16.00/$18.50 Can. Paperback / softback 336 pages Carton Qty: 24 Brit., 1st ser., audio: FSG Trans., dram.: Dalai Editore Hardcover ISBN: Ebook ISBN: National Print and Online Coverage Targeted Outreach to Literary and Crime Sites and Bloggers Picador Crime and Website Feature It s Italy has just been shocked by the kidnapping of the politician Aldo Moro by the left-leaning terrorist group the Red Brigades. In Milan, the upper class continues to amuse itself in luxury restaurants, underground clubs, and cabarets, the sexual appetites of whom are catered to by the enigmatic and cynical pimp, Bravo. Bravo makes his living fulfilling the fantasies, and fetishes of the wealthy and depraved. When the mysterious Carla enters his life, what begins as a clandestine romance quickly becomes a nightmare that will transform Bravo into a man wanted by the police, organized crime, and even the Red Brigades. As the web around him tightens, Bravo will be forced to confront the violence of the times in which he lives as well as his own connections to the political and criminal networks that control contemporary Italy. Publishers Weekly Top Ten: Mysteries and Thrillers Faletti s debut novel, I Kill, has sold more than five million copies overseas. A Pimp s Notes is a nuanced but explosive thriller by one of the world s new crime masters. A great read. Scott Turow [A Pimp s Notes] has the power of a thriller, the efficacy of an atmospheric portrait, the poignant seduction of a noir. And it draws its force...from the fact that it recounts people, places, atmospheres that the author knows well, as they are part of his own past. Il Messaggero GIORGIO FALETTI spent years as a successful comedian and singer-songwriter before beginning a career as a writer. His first novel, I Kill (2002), was an international sensation. His fifth novel, I Am God, was recently published in England to wide acclaim. 39

40 PICADOR JULY 2013 The Elizabethans A. N. Wilson HISTORY / EUROPE Picador 7/30/ $20.00 Paperback / softback 464 pages Carton Qty: in W in H Includes two 8-page black-and-white photograph sections Brit., trans., dram.: Aitken Alexander Associates Ltd; 1st ser., audio: FSG Hardcover ISBN: Ebook ISBN: Dante in Love 11/ Paperback / softback $25.00 Our Times: The Age of Elizabeth II 1/ Paperback / softback $20.00 After the Victorians: The Decline of Britain in the World 9/ Paperback / softback $26.00 A time of exceptional creativity, wealth creation, and political expansion, the Elizabethan age was also remarkable for the larger-than-life personalities of its leading participants. Apart from the complex character of the Virgin Queen herself, A. N. Wilson s The Elizabethans follows the stories of Francis Drake, a privateer who not only defeated the Spanish Armada but also circumnavigated the globe with a drunken, mutinous crew and without reliable navigational instruments; political intriguers like William Cecil and Francis Walsingham; and Renaissance literary geniuses from Sir Philip Sidney to Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare. Most crucially, this was the age when modern Britain was born and established independence from mainland Europe both in its resistance to Spanish and French incursions and in its declaration of religious liberty from the pope and laid the foundations for the expansion of British imperial power and eventual American domination. An acknowledged master of the all-encompassing single-volume history, Wilson tells the exhilarating story of the Elizabethan era with all the panoramic sweep of his bestselling The Victorians, and with the wit and iconoclasm that are his trademarks. He brings a novelist s touch to the portraits of the era s key figures...in Wilson s hands these familiar stories make for gripping reading. The New York Times Book Review Vividly conjures an age of British first and bests momentous discoveries, unequaled poetry and prose, and drama, and political triumphs in the dangerous throes of the Counter-Reformation. Vanity Fair Wilson s treatment of this tumultuous period not only brings to life the title character but also fleshes out the many principal players of this era and explores throughout the relevance of the issues of that time to today s world. The Washington Independent Review of Book... A. N. WILSON is an English writer and journalist who has written numerous critical biographies, novels, essays, and popular histories. He is an occasional columnist for the Daily Mail, The Times Literary Supplement, New Statesman, The Spectator, and The Observer. His books The Victorians, Dante in Love, and After the Victorians, have garnered considerable critical and popular praise. He lives in London. 40
