Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller!“Astounding. Thrilling. Amazing.” —Gillian Flynn“Unputdownable.” —Stephen King“A dark, twisty confection.” —Ruth Ware“Absolutely gripping.” —Louise PennyFor readers of Gillian Flynn and Tana French comes one of the decade’s most anticipated debuts, to be published in thirty-six languages around the world and already in development as a major film from Fox: a twisty, powerful Hitchcockian thriller about an agoraphobic woman who believes she witnessed a crime in a neighboring house.It isn’t paranoia if it’s really happening . . . Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors.Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare.What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is what it seems.Twisty and powerful, ingenious and moving, The Woman in the Window is a smart, sophisticated novel of psychological suspense that recalls the best of Hitchcock.

This is the 10th-Anniversary Edition of Finn—with a new introduction by Jared Leto, a new Finn short story, an essay on the writing of the novel, a Q&A with the author, and a guide for book clubs.In this masterful debut, Jon Clinch takes us on a journey into the history and heart of one of American literature’s most brutal and mysterious figures: Huckleberry Finn’s father. The result is a deeply original tour de force that springs from Twain’s classic novel but takes on a fully realized life of its own.Finn sets a tragic figure loose in a landscape at once familiar and mythic. It begins and ends with a lifeless body–flayed and stripped of all identifying marks–drifting down the Mississippi. The circumstances of the murder, and the secret of the victim’s identity, shape Finn’s story as they will shape his life and his death.Along the way Clinch introduces a cast of unforgettable characters: Finn’s terrifying father, known only as the Judge; his sickly, sycophantic brother, Will; blind Bliss, a secretive moonshiner; the strong and quick-witted Mary, a stolen slave who becomes Finn’s mistress; and of course young Huck himself. In daring to re-create Huck for a new generation, Clinch gives us a living boy in all his human complexity–not an icon, not a myth, but a real child facing vast possibilities in a world alternately dangerous and bright.Finn is a novel about race; about paternity in its many guises; about the shame of a nation recapitulated by the shame of one absolutely unforgettable family. Above all, Finn reaches back into the darkest waters of America’s past to fashion something compelling, fearless, and new. Praise for Finn"A brutal, shocking and epic look in the mirror for all Americans.”— Jared Leto, from the introduction“Ravishing…and a stand-alone marvel of a novel. Grade: A.”— Entertainment Weekly“Clinch treads dangerous ground in making one of America’s greatest novels his jumping-off point, but he brings it off magnificently.”— Dallas Morning News“Clinch’s riverbank Missouri feels postapocalyptic, and his Pap Finn is a crazed yet wily survivor in a polluted landscape.”— Newsweek“Finn strikes its most original chords in its bold imagining of possibilities left unexplored by Huckleberry Finn.”— Austin American-Statesman“An inspired riff on one of literature’s all-time great villains.”— New Orleans Times-Picayune“A jolting companion to the mischievous antics of Huckleberry Finn.”— Christian Science Monitor“A triumph of successful plotting, convincing characterization and lyrical prose.”— Rocky Mountain News“Shocking and charming, A folk-art masterpiece.”— New York Post“Disturbing and darkly compelling.”— Hartford Courant“Jon Clinch pulls off the near impossible in his new novel, which brings Huck's dad to life in all his terrible humanness.”— Winston-Salem Journal“Every fan of Twain’s masterpiece will want to read this inspired spin-off, which could become an unofficial companion volume.”— Library Journal, starred review“Finn is as dark, as brutal, as ambivalent, and as insane as the history and legacy of American racial slavery.”— Mary Gaitskill, author of Veronica “Clinch’s tale is not only filled with echoes of the great American classic to which it is tied; it is destined to become one itself.”— Sara Gruen, author of Water for Elephants

Summary:Unhappiness, says bestselling author Harriet Lerner, is fueled by three key emotions: anxiety, fear, and shame. They are the uninvited guests in our lives. When tragedy or hardship hits, they may become our constant companions.Anxiety can wash over us like a tidal wave or operate as a silent thrum under the surface of our daily lives. With stories that are sometimes hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking, Lerner takes us from "fear lite" to the most difficult lessons the universe sends us. We learn:
- how a man was "cured in a day" of the fear of rejection -- and what we can learn from his story
- how the author overcame her dread of public speaking when her worst fears were realized
- how to deal with the fear of not being good enough, and with the shame of feeling essentially flawed and inadequate
- how to stay calm and clear in an anxious, crazy workplace
- how to manage fear and despair when life sends a crash course in illness, vulnerability, and loss
- how "positive thinking" helps -- and harms
- how to be our best and bravest selves, even when we are terrified and have internalized the shaming messages of others
