Adam Mansbach famously gave voice to two of parenting’s primal struggles in Go the Fuck to Sleep and You Have to Fucking Eat—the often-imitated, never-duplicated pair of New York Times best sellers that ushered in a new era of radical honesty in humor books for parents. Fuck, Now There Are Two of You is a loving monologue about the new addition to the family, addressed to a big sibling and shot through with Adam’s trademark profane truth-telling. Gorgeously illustrated and chock-full of unspoken sentiments channeled directly from the brains of parents worldwide, Fuck, Now There Are Two of You articulates all the fears and frustrations attendant to the simple, math-defying fact that two is a million more kids than one. ADAM MANSBACH is an award-winning novelist, screenwriter, humorist, and cultural critic. Mansbach was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for his screenplay for the Netflix Original Barry, and is currently adapting his middle-grade novel Jake the Fake Keeps It Real for the Disney Channel. His work has appeared in the New Yorker, the New York Times Book Review, Esquire, and on National Public Radio.

contact: johanna ingalls | [email protected] Akashic Books | London 2019 | Featured Titles The Committee a novel by Sterling Watson Professor Tom Stall’s career and life are threatened when a nefarious government-affiliated group of men begin investigating the private acts of innocent people in late 1950s Florida. BOOK DETAILS: 7 Jan. 2020, 420 pages; fiction

COMP TITLES: The Given Day by Dennis Lehane, The Lacuna by Bar- bara Kingsolver

HIGHLIGHTS: Watson’s previous work has been praised by: Dennis Le- hane: “The novels of Sterling Watson are to be treasured and passed on to the next generation.” And, by best-selling authors, Laura Lippman (“As Watson reminds us, corruption and cruelty survive through their uncanny ability to take on new shapes.”), and Tom Franklin (“If this taut literary crime novel [Suitcase City] doesn’t center Sterling Watson on the map, we should change maps.”)

The Committee is set in a sleepy late 1950s Florida university city. Its characters—professors, students, townspeople rich and poor, and politicians—are both typical of such a place and unusual, even bizarre, for the challenges they face and the changes they undergo when their lives are suddenly disrupted by the nefarious workings of a shadowy group of men, The Committee, who use the powers of government and the police to investigate and reveal the most private acts of innocent men and women. This is a story of love, both licit and hidden, war, friendship, betrayal, compromise, and finally the necessity to stand firm against the encroachments upon freedom by men who believe they do God’s and the government’s righteous work. Set against the backdrop of political turmoil and the clash of classes and cultures—Southern, academic, patrician, and demimonde—The Committee pits protagonist Tom Stall, scholarly, ambitious, and rising in his world of teaching and administration, against two men and a woman—a colleague, a university president, and an old friend turned deadly enemy—in a struggle for the soul of a town, a university, and an ideal. Tension and suspense build with crushing inevitability as hidden forces and unforeseen events threaten Stall’s career and finally his very life.

Sterling Watson is the author of seven novels, including Deadly Sweet, Sweet Dream Baby, Fighting in the Shade, and Suitcase City. He was director of the creative writing program at Eckerd College for twenty years and now teaches in the Solstice MFA Program at Pine Manor College in Boston. Watson lives in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Farley Race, class, and hormones combine and combust when a Harvard freshman and his two friends attempt to join the staff of the Harpoon, the school’s iconic humor magazine. BOOK DETAILS: 1 April 2019, 280 pages; young adult fiction/humor COMP TITLES: The Idiot by Elif Batuman; Moo by Jane Smiley HIGHLIGHTS: Farley has over 13 thousand Twitter followers and an active blog; he has strong media connections from working at Wall Street Journal, Time, and he is a frequent guest commentator on CNN and other major TV stations. PRAISE FOR AROUND HARVARD SQUARE: “Brimming with humor and heart, Around Harvard Square is a delight.” —Andy Borowitz, creator of the New Yorker’s “The Borowitz Report” “The first year of college can feel as dramatic as the first moon landing and somehow C.J. Farley also turns it into a painfully funny adventure. Around Harvard Square is a coming-of-age tale that blends J.D. Salinger’s rueful tones with Paul Beatty’s biting humor and becomes something entirely its own. I had so much fun running around with these kids, it felt like seeing old friends: laughing and crying and laughing some more.” —Victor LaValle, author of The Changeling It’s the nineties, and Tosh Livingston, straight-A student and superstar athlete, is living the dream—he’s made it out of upstate New York and into the incoming freshman class at Harvard University. But after an accident blows up his basketball-playing hopes, he discovers a new purpose in life—to win the frenzied competition for a spot on the staff of the Harvard Harpoon, the school’s legendary humor magazine. Along with Lao, his pot-smoking roommate from China, their friend Meera, a passive-aggressive science major from India, and Zippa, a Jamaican student-activist with a flair for cartooning, Tosh finds that becoming a member of the Harpoon is weirder and more dangerous than anyone could have imagined. Success requires pushing themselves to their limits and unearthing long-buried secrets that will rock their school and change all of their lives forever. With its whip-smart humor and fast-paced narrative, Around Harvard Square will appeal to readers of all ages interested in exploring the complicated roles that race and class play in higher education. C.J. FARLEY has worked as a senior editor for the Wall Street Journal and Time magazine, and is the author of the novels Game World and My Favorite War. Farley served as consulting producer on the Peabody-winning HBO documentary Mr. Dy- namite: The Rise of James Brown and wrote the best-selling biographies Aaliyah: More Than a Woman and Before the Legend: The Rise of Bob Marley. Farley, who was born in Kingston, Jamaica, is a graduate of Harvard and a former editor of the Harvard Lampoon. He lives in New Rochelle, New York.

BOOK DETAILS: 7 Jan. 2020, 336 pages; literary fiction COMP TITLES: The Bad Girl by Mario Vargas Llosa, Live After Life by Kate Atkinson, 4 3 2 1 by Paul Auster Garrett Adams, an uptight behavioral psychology professor who refuses to embrace the 1960s, is in a slump. The dispirited rats in his latest experiment aren’t yielding results, and his beloved Yankees are losing. As he sits at a New York City bar watching the Yanks strike out, he knows he needs a change. At a Columbus Circle bookstore he meets a mysterious girl, Daphne, who draws him into the turbulent and exciting world of Vietnam War protest politics and the music of Bob Dylan and the Beatles. He starts to emerge from the numbness and grief over his father’s death in World War II. When Daphne evolves into four separate versions of herself, Garrett’s life becomes complicated as he devotes himself to answering questions about character and destiny raised by her iterations. His obsession threatens to upend his relationship with Caroline, a beautiful art historian, destroy his teaching job, and dissolve his friendship with his old pal Jerry. The Daphnes seem to exist in separate realities that challenge the laws of physics and call into question everything Garrett thought he knew. He must decide what is vision, what is science, and what is delusion. LAUREL BRETT, a refugee from the 1960s, was born in Manhattan in the middle of the last century.

Ryan O’Callaghan’s plan was always to play football and then, when his career was over, kill himself. Growing up in a red-state corner of California, the not-so-subtle messages he heard as a young man from his family and from TV and film routinely equated being gay with disease and death. Letting people in on the darkest secret he kept buried inside was not an option . . . O’Callaghan was recruited by the University of California, Berkeley, where he spent five seasons, and then it was on to the NFL for stints with the almost-undefeated New England Patriots and the often-defeated Kansas City Chiefs. Bubbling under the surface of Ryan’s entire NFL career was a collision course between his secret sexuality and his hidden drug use . . . As his injuries mounted and his daily intake of opioids reached a near-lethal level, he wrote his suicide note to his parents and plotted his death. Yet someone had been watching. A member of the Chiefs organization stepped in, recognizing the signs of drug addiction. Ryan reluctantly sought psychological help, and it was there that he revealed his lifelong secret for the very first time: he’s gay. Now in his late twenties, Ryan faced a fork in the road of his life: end it, or find out if his family and football friends could ever accept a gay man in their lives. You Throw Like a Girl: The Blind Spot of Masculinity by Don McPherson, former NFL quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles BOOK DETAILS: 3 Sept. 2019, 256 pages; nonfiction/sports COMP TITLES: Men Explain Things to Me by Rebecca Solnit, The Descent of Man by Grayson Perry HIGHLIGHTS: McPherson’s educational programs and lectures about ending men’s violence against women have reached over one million people in more than three hundred colleges and communities throughout North America; McPherson has nearly 10K Twitter followers; McPherson has been nominated for an Emmy Award and has appeared on numerous TV shows, including The Oprah Winfrey Show. In You Throw Like a Girl, former Syracuse University star quarterback and NFL veteran Don McPherson examines very narrow ways in which boys are taught to become men, almost invariably at the expense of women. Exploring the strict set of behaviors and beliefs that underpin our understanding of masculinity, he arrives at the following question: if male privilege comes at the expense of women, is it truly privilege (and does it belong to men?), or is it more accurately defined as oppression? Using examples from his own life, including his storied football career, McPherson passionately argues that we should no longer consider men’s violence against women as a “women’s issue” but a “men’s issue.” In You Throw Like a Girl, McPherson analyzes how we can engage men in a sustained dialogue, with a new set of terms that are aspirational and more accurately representative of the emotional wholeness of men.

Svenonius PREVIOUS LICENSING: Supernatural Strategies for Making a Rock ’n’ Roll Group: Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain; Censorship Now!!: Italy and Spain; The Psychic Soviet: France HIGHLIGHTS: Svenonius’s books are some of our strongest sellers, in large part due to Svenonius’s nonstop touring— Svenonius often tours throughout Europe and his French publisher has had great success incorporating book festivals and readings with his music touring. “In a sense the book is Mr. Svenonius’s love letter to the good old days of do-it-yourself punk concerts, though it’s cleverly disguised as a series of Marxian essays.” —New York Times “The pocket-sized book—given Svenonius’s communism infatuation, the parallel to Mao’s Little Red Book is no mistake—contains well-thought-out arguments on a variety of subjects, from vampires to the origins of punk rock. It’s often funny, but never in a self-consciously ironic way.” —Washington Post A collection of essays and articles from one of the mainstays of the Washington, DC, underground rock-and-roll scene, The Psychic Soviet is Ian F. Svenonius’s groundbreaking first book of writings. The selections are written in a lettered yet engaging style, filled with parody and biting humor that subvert capitalist culture, and cover such topics as the ascent of the DJ as a star, the “cosmic depression” that followed the defeat of the USSR, how Seinfeld caused the bankruptcy of modern pop culture, and the status of rock and roll as a religion. The pocket-sized book is bound with a durable bright-pink plastic cover, recalling the aesthetics of Mao’s Little Red Book, and perfect for carrying into the fray of street battle, classroom, or lunch-counter argument. IAN F. SVENONIUS is the author of the underground best sellers Super- natural Strategies for Making a Rock ’n’ Roll Group and Censorship Now!! As a musician he has created more than twenty albums and countless singles in various rock ’n’ roll combos (Chain & the Gang, Weird War, The Make-Up, The Nation of Ulysses, etc.). He lives in Washington, DC.

It’s Just a Plant A Children’s Story about Marijuana by Ricardo Cortés BOOK DETAILS: 7 April 2020, 48 pages; children’s picture book COMP TITLES: The Lorax by Dr. Seuss, World without Fish by Mark Kurlansky HIGHLIGHTS: With more and more countries legalizing/decriminalizing marijuana and with growing evidence of marijuana’s medical benefits being acknowledged in the medical community, It’s Just a Plantis the perfect book to have honest conversations with children about marijuana. It’s Just a Plant is an illustrated children’s book about marijuana. It follows the journey of a young girl as she learns about the plant from a diverse cast of characters including her parents, a local farmer, a doctor, and a police officer. Marijuana can be hard to talk about. Many parents have tried it, millions still use it, and most feel awkward about disclosing such histories (many duck the question), for fear that telling kids the truth might encourage to experiment too. Meanwhile, the “drug facts” children learn in school can be more frightening than educational, blaming pot for everything from teenage pregnancy to terrorism. A child’s first awareness of drugs should come from a better source. It’s Just a Plant is a book for parents who want to discuss the complexities of pot in a thoughtful, fact-oriented manner.
