<b>Written and designed by the staff of <i>The Washington Post</i> and illustrated by artist Jan Feindt, <i>The Mueller Report Illustrated: The Obstruction Investigation</i> brings to life the findings of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III in an engaging and illuminating presentation.</b><br /><br />When it was released on April 18, 2019, Mueller’s report laid out two major conclusions: that Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election had been “sweeping and systematic” and that the evidence did not establish that Trump or his campaign had conspired with the Kremlin. The special counsel left one significant question unanswered: whether the president broke the law by trying to block the probe.<br /> <br />However, Mueller unspooled a dramatic narrative of an angry and anxious president trying to control the criminal investigation, even after he knew he was under scrutiny. Deep inside the 448-page report is a fly-on-the-wall account of the inner workings of the White House, remarkable in detail and drama. With dialogue taken directly from the report, <i>The Mueller Report Illustrated </i>is a vivid, factually rigorous narrative of a crucial period in Trump’s presidency that remains relevant to the turbulent events of today.

<p><b>Economist Bryan Caplan makes a bold case for unrestricted immigration in this fact-filled graphic nonfiction.</b> </p><p>American policy-makers have long been locked in a heated battle over whether, how many, and what kind of immigrants to allow to live and work in the country. Those in favor of welcoming more immigrants often cite humanitarian reasons, while those in favor of more restrictive laws argue the need to protect native citizens. </p><p>But economist Bryan Caplan adds a new, compelling perspective to the immigration debate: He argues that opening all borders could eliminate absolute poverty worldwide and usher in a booming worldwide economy—greatly benefiting humanity. </p><p>With a clear and conversational tone, exhaustive research, and vibrant illustrations by Zach Weinersmith, <i>Open Borders </i>makes the case for unrestricted immigration easy to follow and hard to deny.</p>

<b>National bestseller</b><br /><b>2017 National Book Critics Circle (NBCC) Finalist<br /> ABA Indies Introduce Winter / Spring 2017 Selection<br /> Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Spring 2017 Selection<br /> ALA 2018 Notable Books Selection<br /><br /> An intimate and poignant graphic novel portraying one family’s journey from war-torn Vietnam, from debut author Thi Bui</b>.<br />  <br /> This beautifully illustrated and emotional story is an evocative memoir about the search for a better future and a longing for the past. Exploring the anguish of immigration and the lasting effects that displacement has on a child and her family, Bui documents the story of her family’s daring escape after the fall of South Vietnam in the 1970s, and the difficulties they faced building new lives for themselves.<br />  <br /> At the heart of Bui’s story is a universal struggle: While adjusting to life as a first-time mother, she ultimately discovers what it means to be a parent—the endless sacrifices, the unnoticed gestures, and the depths of unspoken love. Despite how impossible it seems to take on the simultaneous roles of both parent and child, Bui pushes through. With haunting, poetic writing and breathtaking art, she examines the strength of family, the importance of identity, and the meaning of home.<br />  <br /> In what Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen calls “a book to break your heart and heal it,” <i>The Best We Could Do</i> brings to life Thi Bui’s journey of understanding, and provides inspiration to all of those who search for a better future while longing for a simpler past.
