An illustrated pocket guide to the hip characters populating "cool neighborhoods" across America, modeled on a bird watcher's field guide. Based on the author's popular Tumblr of the same name, Hipster Animals will help readers identify such urban wildlife as "city boy BBQ pitmaster," "spazzy puckish crush girl," "pho authenticity police," and "dandy mixologist." The stylized illustrations of each of the 80 "hipster animal" types are hilariously rendered as actual animals in human clothes, and pithy accompanying text details these creatures' identifying characteristics, habitats, diets, and "calls." Including supplementary activities and essays (such as a feature on decoding the signals of different hipster species' mating rituals), this parody reference guide provides a snarky glimpse into the foreign--yet all too familiar--world of the trendsetters among us.

"Ana Božic(evic''s work is sort of animist--it's either about silence or the racket of the world. How does she do it? Clicks the switch to say it's silent & it's happening then on a distant tiny stage. She's muttering, and then it's a story and a very good one. I mean in poetry at some point you don't know what the writer means. In Ana's work I watch "it" vanish (all the time) & I trust it."--Eileen Myles.

In a marvellous, thrilling re-creation of the world of Pride and Prejudice, P.D. James fuses her lifelong passion for the work of Jane Austen with her own great talent for writing crime fiction. The year is 1803, and Darcy and Elizabeth have been married for six years. There are now two handsome, healthy sons in the Pemberley nursery, Elizabeth's beloved sister Jane and her husband, Bingley, live within seventeen miles, the ordered and secure life of Pemberley seems unassailable, and Elizabeth's happiness in her marriage is complete. But their peace is threatened and old sins and misunderstandings are rekindled on the eve of the annual autumn ball. The Darcys and their guests are preparing to retire for the night when a chaise appears, rocking down the path from Pemberley's wild woodland, and as it pulls up, Lydia Wickham, an uninvited guest, tumbles out, screaming that her husband has been murdered. Death Comes to Pemberley is a powerful work of fiction, as rich in its compelling story, in its evocation of place, and its gripping psychological and emotional insight, as the very best of P. D. James. She brings us back masterfully and with delight to much-loved characters, illuminating the happy but threatened marriage of the Darcys with the excitement and suspense of a brilliantly crafted mystery.
