<p><strong><em>New York Times</em></strong><strong> Bestseller</strong></p><p>A collection of essays spanning politics, criticism, and feminism from one of the most-watched young cultural observers of her generation, Roxane Gay.</p><p><strong>“</strong>Pink is my favorite color. I used to say my favorite color was black to be <em>cool</em>, but it is pink—all shades of pink. If I have an accessory, it is probably pink. I read <em>Vogue</em>, and I’m not doing it ironically, though it might seem that way. I once live-tweeted the September issue.”</p><p>In these funny and insightful essays, Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman (<em>Sweet Valley High</em>) of color (<em>The Help</em>) while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years (<em>Girls, Django in Chains</em>) and commenting on the state of feminism today (abortion, Chris Brown). The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly insightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society, but also one of our culture.</p><p><em>Bad Feminist</em> is a sharp, funny, and spot-on look at the ways in which the culture we consume becomes who we are, and an inspiring call-to-arms of all the ways we still need to do better.</p>

Imagine being alongside one of the greatest bands in the history of rock, touring the world and being there as they perform at some of the best and biggest music venues in the world. Peter Hince didn't have to imagine: for more than a decade, he lived a life that other people can only dream of as he worked with Queen as head of their road crew. In 1973, Queen was the support act for Mott the Hoople, for whom Peter was a roadie. Back then, Queen had to content themselves with being second on the bill and the world had not yet woken up to the flamboyant talent of Freddie Mercury. Peter started working full time for Queen just as they were making A Night at the Opera, the album which catapulted them to international stardom. In this intimate and affectionate book, Peter recalls the highlights of his years with the band. He was with Freddie when he composed 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love'; he was responsible for making sure that Freddie's stage performances went without a hitch - and was often there to witness his famed tantrums! He was also party to the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll which are invariably part of life on the road with a rock band. Many books have been written about Queen and Freddie Mercury but this is the first real insider's story. Packed with the author's own exclusive photographs, this warm and witty book will entertain and inform. It is a must-read for any music fan.

<em>Foreword Reviews'</em> 18th Annual INDIEFAB Honorable Mention for Psychology<br /><br />Few topics are more contested today than gender identity. In the fog of the culture war, complex issues like gender dysphoria are reduced to slogans and sound bites. And while the war rages over language, institutions and political allegiances, transgender individuals are the ones who end up being the casualties.<br /><br />Mark Yarhouse, an expert in sexual identity and therapy, challenges the church to rise above the political hostilities and listen to people's stories. In <em>Understanding Gender Dysphoria</em>, Yarhouse offers a Christian perspective on transgender issues that eschews simplistic answers and appreciates the psychological and theological complexity. The result is a book that engages the latest research while remaining pastorally sensitive to the experiences of each person.<br /><br />In the midst of a tense political climate, Yarhouse calls Christians to come alongside those on the margins and stand with them as they resolve their questions and concerns about gender identity. <em>Understanding Gender Dysphoria</em> is the book we need to navigate these stormy cultural waters.
