film theory, a feat of reporting, and wonderful personal history, it is all
written in the singular voice recognizable immediately as QT’s and with the
rare perspective about cinema possible only from one of the greatest
practitioners of the artform ever. Read more

The Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Book

A celebration of and behind-the-scenes look at Jerry Seinfeld’s
groundbreaking streaming series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.In his
streaming show, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry Seinfeld has
engaged with some of the funniest people in history in classic cars, coffee
shops, and diners. He has reminisced with Larry David; bantered with
legends Steve Martin, Tina Fey, and Eddie Murphy; reunited with the cast of
Seinfeld; and even paid a visit to President Barack Obama in the Oval
Office. These and dozens of other guests talked about the intricacies of
stand-up, the evolution of their careers and personal lives, and whatever
else popped into their brilliant minds. Seinfeld’s carefully crafted
episodes have reimagined the talk show format, each one a unique,
hilarious, and yet intimate conversation—a rare opportunity for viewers to
witness their favorite performers unscripted and unvarnished. But in
producing eighty-four episodes over eleven seasons, he has also created
arguably the most important historical archive about the art of comedy ever
amassed, with episodes featuring Garry Shandling, Jerry Lewis, Don Rickles,
Carl Reiner, and Norm McDonald already serving as permanent shrines for
legendary comedians. Timed to the 10th anniversary of the show’s debut and
with an introduction from Jerry Seinfeld, this book isn’t just a record of
the show but instead an inventive tribute full of behind-the-scenes photos
and anecdotes. The book dives into the inspiration and creation of
segments, the most unforgettable lines from guests, an index of the cars,
and some of the most memorable moments from crew members. Originally
conceived as an “anti-talk show,” Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee earned
multiple Emmy nominations and helped lead the streaming revolution. Perfect
for gift giving season, The Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Book is a
beautifully designed book with iconic, never-before-seen production photos
which will appeal to comedy lovers, car aficionados, coffee connoisseurs,
and Jerry Seinfeld fans. Read more

The Satanic Verses

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “[A] torrent of endlessly inventive prose,
by turns comic and enraged, embracing life in all its contradictions. In
this spectacular novel, verbal pyrotechnics barely outshine its
psychological truths.”—NewsdayWinner of the Whitbread PrizeOne of the most
controversial and acclaimed novels ever written, The Satanic Verses is
Salman Rushdie’s best-known and most galvanizing book. Set in a modern
world filled with both mayhem and miracles, the story begins with a bang:
the terrorist bombing of a London-bound jet in midflight. Two Indian actors
of opposing sensibilities fall to earth, transformed into living symbols of
what is angelic and evil. This is just the initial act in a magnificent
odyssey that seamlessly merges the actual with the imagined. A book whose
importance is eclipsed only by its quality, The Satanic Verses is a key
work of our times.Praise for The Satanic Verses“Rushdie is a storyteller of
prodigious powers, able to conjure up whole geographies, causalities,
climates, creatures, customs, out of thin air.”—The New York Times Book
Review“Exhilarating, populous, loquacious, sometimes hilarious,
extraordinary . . . a roller-coaster ride over a vast landscape of the
imagination.”—The Guardian (London)“A novel of metamorphoses, hauntings,
memories, hallucinations, revelations, advertising jingles, and jokes.
Rushdie has the power of description, and we succumb.”—The Times (London) Read more

Royally Not Ready

From USA Today and Amazon Charts bestselling author Meghan Quinn, comes a
fresh take on a royal romance with a twist. Laugh out loud funny and full
of some of her steamiest scenes yet, Quinn takes you on an unexpected,
sizzling fairytale journey. So there I was selling bikinis out of my truck
in South Beach Miami, getting ready to kick off a wet t-shirt contest when
the world’s biggest grouch approached me – Keller Fitzwilliam.The man had
the sultriest British accent I’ve ever heard. And he looked like he just
walked off a Viking boat and into a suit tailored specifically for his
impressively muscular frame. Only problem is, he had the warmth of an ice
pick and he kept telling me he was here to take me back to his home
country.Of course, I didn’t follow him. I might be up for a good time, but
I’m also educated enough to know leaving with a stranger isn’t smart. Well,
that’s until he mentioned my mom’s name. My mom who passed away several
years ago. So after some serious fact-checking, my bikini-clad bum went
with him to a sub-arctic country I had never heard of just north of the
British Isles, where I found out my grandpa was the king of said freezing
country, and I was the one and only heir.Desperate to learn more about my
mom, I decided to give this princess thing a chance.Good idea, right?
Wrong.Because Mr. Ice Pick was put to the task of training me and he’s not
just cold as ice, he’s pompous, aggravating, and possessive. And did I
mention we have to share a bathroom in a tiny castle?We are oil and water
every single day and even though he’s training me to be queen, I have this
simmering desire to kneel before him. Read more

Happy-Go-Lucky

David Sedaris, the “champion storyteller,” (Los Angeles Times) returns
with his first new collection of personal essays since the bestselling
Calypso. Back when restaurant menus were still printed on paper, and
wearing a mask—or not—was a decision made mostly on Halloween, David
Sedaris spent his time doing normal things. As Happy-Go-Lucky opens, he is
learning to shoot guns with his sister, visiting muddy flea markets in
Serbia, buying gummy worms to feed to ants, and telling his nonagenarian
father wheelchair jokes. But then the pandemic hits, and like so many
others, he’s stuck in lockdown, unable to tour and read for audiences, the
part of his work he loves most. To cope, he walks for miles through a
nearly deserted city, smelling only his own breath. He vacuums his
apartment twice a day, fails to hoard anything, and contemplates how sex
workers and acupuncturists might be getting by during quarantine. As the
world gradually settles into a new reality, Sedaris too finds himself
changed. His offer to fix a stranger’s teeth rebuffed, he straightens his
own, and ventures into the world with new confidence. Newly orphaned, he
considers what it means, in his seventh decade, no longer to be someone’s
son. And back on the road, he discovers a battle-scarred America: people
weary, storefronts empty or festooned with Help Wanted signs, walls painted
with graffiti reflecting the contradictory messages of our time: Eat the
Rich. Trump 2024. Black Lives Matter. In Happy-Go-Lucky, David Sedaris
once again captures what is most unexpected, hilarious, and poignant about
these recent upheavals, personal and public, and expresses in precise
language both the misanthropy and desire for connection that drive us all.
If we must live in interesting times, there is no one better to chronicle
them than the incomparable David Sedaris. Read more

A Not So Meet Cute

How did you two meet?

The quintessential question asked to every couple. And the answer is usually some bubbly, lovey dovey tale of being struck in the bum by Cupid’s arrow.

My meet cute (well not so meet cute) is slightly different. I was trolling a wealthy neighborhood in Beverly Hills, searching for someone to take me as their bride, you know, to make my arch nemesis jealous who consequently just fired me.

He was stomping around the block like some sort of gorgeous ogre, mumbling about a business deal gone wrong and attempting to finagle his way out of it.

And that’s when we bumped into each other.
There were no sparks.
Not even a hint of blossoming love.

But next thing I knew, I was scarfing down free chips and guac, listening to this man lay out all of his problems which led to his big ask . . . he wanted me to be his Vivian Ward, you know, from Pretty Woman–minus the frisky behavior.

We’re talking about living in a mansion, intimate double dates, and pretending we were head over heels in love . . . and engaged. Can you imagine?

The absolute audacity.

But people do crazy things when they’re desperate. And I reeked of desperation. So, I struck up a deal.

My one big mistake, though . . . big . . . HUGE? I accidentally fell for the incomparable Huxley Cane.
