Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man Summary

In this revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him, Mary L. Trump, a trained clinical psychologist and Donald’s only niece, shines a bright light on the dark history of their family in order to explain how her uncle became the man who now threatens the world’s health, economic security, and social fabric.

Mary Trump spent much of her childhood in her grandparents’ large, imposing house in the heart of Queens, New York, where Donald and his four siblings grew up. She describes a nightmare of traumas, destructive relationships, and a tragic combination of neglect and abuse. She explains how specific events and general family patterns created the damaged man who currently occupies the Oval Office, including the strange and harmful relationship between Fred Trump and his two oldest sons, Fred Jr. and Donald.

A firsthand witness to countless holiday meals and interactions, Mary brings an incisive wit and unexpected humor to sometimes grim, often confounding family events. She recounts in unsparing detail everything from her uncle Donald’s place in the family spotlight and Ivana’s penchant for regifting to her grandmother’s frequent injuries and illnesses and the appalling way Donald, Fred Trump’s favorite son, dismissed and derided him when he began to succumb to Alzheimer’s.

Numerous pundits, armchair psychologists, and journalists have sought to parse Donald J. Trump’s lethal flaws. Mary L. Trump has the education, insight, and intimate familiarity needed to reveal what makes Donald, and the rest of her clan, tick. She alone can recount this fascinating, unnerving saga, not just because of her insider’s perspective but also because she is the only Trump willing to tell the truth about one of the world’s most powerful and dysfunctional families.

Too Much and Never Enough Audiobook by Mary L. Trump Reviews

“[T]he most devastating, most valuable and all-around best Trump book since he started running for president. In the vast Trump literature, this one is something new…[W]hat this book does do is help us understand him, offering the most incisive rendering yet of why he is the way he is.”Politico

“Mesmerizing beach reading and a memorable opposition research dump…It is salacious, venomous and well-sourced…Yet the narrative remains compelling.” The Guardian

“A delicious tell-all that does in fact tell all in a way one longs for a tell-all to do.” Vogue

“Dripping with snideness, vibrating with rage, and gleaming with clarity—a deeply satisfying read.” Kirkus (starred review)

Slave Girl: Abducted by traffickers. Sold as a sex slave. This is my true story. Audiobook Summary

Sarah Forsyth has spent most of her life in fear. After overcoming the hurt and heartbreak of a horrific childhood, Sarah managed to build a new life for herself as a nursery nurse.

Then, one day, she spotted a newspaper advert for a job in a crèche in Amsterdam. Excited by the prospect of a fresh start abroad, she eagerly signed up. But within minutes of stepping off the plane in Amsterdam her life began to fall apart…

There was no crèche and no job. That night, at just nineteen years of age, her life – her real life, her life as Sarah Forsyth – ended. Fed cocaine and cannabis, and forced at gunpoint to work as a prostitute in the Red Light District of Amsterdam: Sarah was a victim of sex-trafficking.

Sarah Forsyth is a survivor. This is her heartbreaking story.

Sexual slavery and sexual exploitation is attaching the right of ownership over one or more people with the intent of coercing or otherwise forcing them to engage in sexual activities. This includes forced labor, reducing a person to a servile status (including forced marriage) and sex trafficking persons, such as the sexual trafficking of children.[1]

Sexual slavery may also involve single-owner sexual slavery; ritual slavery, sometimes associated with certain religious practices, such as ritual servitude in Ghana, Togo and Benin; slavery for primarily non-sexual purposes but where non-consensual sexual activity is common; or forced prostitution. The Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action calls for an international effort to make people aware of sexual slavery, and that sexual slavery is an abuse of human rights. The incidence of sexual slavery by country has been studied and tabulated by UNESCO, with the cooperation of various international agencies.

Slave Girl: Abducted by traffickers. Sold as a sex slave. This is my true story. by Sarah Forsyth, Tim Tate Reviews

This really opened my eyes to sex slavery around the world. Not only in Amsterdam but in places I’ve visited on holiday and didn’t no it happened. I was not impressed with my visit to Amsterdam and yes I did see the red light district. This book shows exactly why I felt disgusted in what I saw that day. What an amazing woman that can put all this that has happened to her in a tell all book for many other woman to see the warming signs before it’s too late!
Thank you for this brilliant book. (Kim)

After reading the first book I was interested to see how this could be followed.
The book is told still from Sarah’s perspective but looks at a different aspect of human trafficking and prostitution. A lot of which U was oblivious too and had not considered. I enjoyed reading this book (If that’s the right terminology for a book such as this) the references and links to external sites are informative and I genuinely feel that the information provided is true. I am pleased to read how well Sarah is doing in her personal life and wish her every happiness for the future. (Kellie)

Human trafficking is the trade of humans for the purpose of forced labour, sexual slavery, or commercial sexual exploitation for the trafficker or others. This may encompass providing a spouse in the context of forced marriage, or the extraction of organs or tissues, including for surrogacy and ova removal. Human trafficking can occur within a country or trans-nationally. Human trafficking is a crime against the person because of the violation of the victim’s rights of movement through coercion and because of their commercial exploitation. Human trafficking is the trade in people, especially women and children, and does not necessarily involve the movement of the person from one place to another.

Hurricanes: A Memoir Summary

The highly anticipated memoir from hip-hop icon Rick Ross chronicles his coming of age amid Miami’s crack epidemic, his star-studded controversies and his unstoppable rise to fame.

Rick Ross is an indomitable presence in the music industry, but few people know his full story. Now, for the first time, Ross offers a vivid, dramatic and unexpectedly candid account of his early childhood, his tumultuous adolescence and his dramatic ascendancy in the world of hip-hop.

Born William Leonard Roberts II, Ross grew up “across the bridge,” in a Miami at odds with the glitzy beaches, nightclubs and yachts of South Beach. In the aftermath of the 1980 race riots and the Mariel boatlift, Ross came of age at the height of the city’s crack epidemic, when home invasions and execution-style killings were commonplace. Still, in the midst of the chaos and danger that surrounded him, Ross flourished, first as a standout high school football player and then as a dope boy in Carol City’s notorious Matchbox housing projects. All the while he honed his musical talent, overcoming setback after setback until a song called “Hustlin’” changed his life forever.

From the making of “Hustlin’” to his first major label deal with Def Jam, to the controversy surrounding his past as a correctional officer and the numerous health scares, arrests and feuds he had to transcend along the way, Hurricanes is a revealing portrait of one of the biggest stars in the rap game, and an intimate look at the birth of an artist.

Hurricanes Audiobook by Rick Ross, Neil Martinez-Belkin Reviews

“Hurricanes takes readers on a gripping journey through Ross’s childhood growing up in the ’80s in the crime-ridden neighborhood of Carol City in Miami Gardens, Florida—to his rocky road to stardom and the many perils and controversies that came after.”—People

“No one can accuse William Leonard Roberts II of living an uninteresting life, and his appropriately titled memoir is one wild ride.”—Library Journal

“Hip-hop fans will flock to Ross’ frankly told and compelling life story.”—Booklist

The Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History of September 11, 2001 Audiobook Summary

Now with a new afterword, Garrett M. Graff’s instant New York Times bestseller The Only Plane in the Sky, the comprehensive oral history of September 11, 2001 called “history as its most immediate and moving” (Jon Meacham) and “remarkable…a priceless civic gift” (The Wall Street Journal).

Hailed as “remarkable…incredibly evocative and compelling” (The Washington Post) and “oral history at its finest” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette), Garrett M. Graff’s The Only Plane in the Sky is the most vivid and human portrait of the September 11 attacks yet, comprised of never-before-published transcripts, recently declassified documents, and original interviews and stories from nearly five hundred government officials, first responders, witnesses, survivors, friends, and family members. Here is a vivid, profound, and searing portrait of humanity on a day that changed the course of history, and all of our lives.

“The Only Plane in the Sky: an Oral History of 9/11” (Avid Reader Press), by Garrett M. Graff

People born at least a quarter-century ago probably remember the exact details of what they were doing on that beautiful blue September day when terror was unleashed across the country.

Now, 18 years later, the memories of hundreds of firsthand witnesses tell the story of the 9/11 attacks in their own words, providing a riveting step-by-step account of the day that brought out the best in many Americans.

Garrett M. Graff and his team have assembled interviews from 480 people who share their terrifying and often inspirational memories of the day when hijackers used two passenger planes as weapons to topple the twin towers of the World Trade Center and another to attack the Pentagon. A fourth hijacked plane went down in flames when heroic passengers fought back to bring it down in rural Pennsylvania before it could strike another high-profile target, probably in Washington.

The technique of letting the witnesses tell the story does a remarkable job of bringing to life the horrific day in a way that a writer’s narrative would have a hard time matching.

The Only Plane in the Sky by Garrett M. Graff Reviews

“A riveting step-by-step account of the day . . . The technique of letting the witnesses tell the story does a remarkable job of bringing to life the horrific day in a way that a writer’s narrative would have a hard time matching. . . . It makes for a gripping read—and a reminder of the country at its best while under attack.”
—Will Lester, Associated Press

“Graff has woven a powerful, graphic narrative of how September 11 played out everywhere from the International Space Station to the inside of the collapsing World Trade Center towers. . . . I repeatedly cried. I could feel my pulse elevate. I often had to put it down after a dozen pages. But I think that’s the point of the book. September 11 was terrible and confusing, and the more time passes, sometimes the harder that is to remember. No matter how much we try to describe those feelings to children who didn’t live through them, something will be lost in the translation and telling. This book captures the emotions and unspooling horror of the day. It will be a good text to hand to a curious teenager when he one day asks: What was September 11 really like?”
—Scott Detrow, NPR

“Over 64 fine-sliced chapters, Mr. Graff . . . gives us ‘the stories of those who lived through and experienced 9/11—where they were, what they remember, and how their lives changed.’ The result is remarkable, and Mr. Graff’s curation of these accounts—drawn from hundreds of his own interviews and from the reporting of other journalists and historians—is a priceless civic gift. . . . The book is refreshingly free from editorializing, ideology and ululation. It gives us instead poignant, often distressing, vignettes and impressions of the day and its aftermath. On page after page, a reader will encounter words that startle, or make him angry, or heartbroken, or queasy.”
Tunku Varadarajan, The Wall Street Journal

The Nickel Boys (Winner 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction): A Novel Audiobook Summary

In this Pulitzer Prize-winning, New York Times bestselling follow-up to The Underground Railroad, Colson Whitehead brilliantly dramatizes another strand of American history through the story of two boys unjustly sentenced to a hellish reform school in Jim Crow-era Florida.
 
When Elwood Curtis, a black boy growing up in 1960s Tallahassee, is unfairly sentenced to a juvenile reformatory called the Nickel Academy, he finds himself trapped in a grotesque chamber of horrors. Elwood’s only salvation is his friendship with fellow “delinquent” Turner, which deepens despite Turner’s conviction that Elwood is hopelessly naive, that the world is crooked, and that the only way to survive is to scheme and avoid trouble. As life at the Academy becomes ever more perilous, the tension between Elwood’s ideals and Turner’s skepticism leads to a decision whose repercussions will echo down the decades.
 
Based on the real story of a reform school that operated for 111 years and warped the lives of thousands of children, The Nickel Boys is a devastating, driven narrative that showcases a great American novelist writing at the height of his powers and “should further cement Whitehead as one of his generation’s best’ (Entertainment Weekly). 

Arch Colson Chipp Whitehead was born in New York City on November 6, 1969, and grew up in Manhattan. He is one of four children to successful entrepreneur parents who owned an executive recruiting firm. As a child in Manhattan, Whitehead went by his first name Arch. He later switched to Chipp, before switching to Colson. He attended the elite prep Trinity School in Manhattan and graduated from Harvard University in 1991. In college he became friends with poet Kevin Young.

Early in his career, he lived in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Whitehead lives in Manhattan and also owns a home in Sag Harbor (The Hamptons), on Long Island. His wife is a literary agent and they have two children.

The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead Reviews

A necessary read.” —President Barack Obama

“This is a powerful book by one of America’s great writers. . . . Without sentimentality, in as intense and finely crafted a book as you’ll ever read, Whitehead tells a story of American history that won’t allow you to see the country in the same way again.” —Toronto Star

Colson Whitehead continues to make a classic American genre his own. . . . The narration is disciplined and the sentences plain and sturdy, oars cutting into water. Every chapter hits its marks. . . . Whitehead comports himself with gravity and care, the steward of painful, suppressed histories; his choices on the page can feel as much ethical as aesthetic. The ordinary language, the clear pane of his prose, lets the stories speak for themselves. . . . Whitehead has written novels of horror and apocalypse; nothing touches the grimness of the real stories he conveys here” —The New York Times

“Inspired by a real school in Florida, The Nickel Boys is a haunting narrative that reinforces Whitehead’s prowess as a leading voice in American literature.” —TIME

“[The Nickel Boys] should further cement Whitehead as one of his generation’s best.” —Entertainment Weekly

Prince of Air and Darkness Audiobook Summary

Phineas Smith has been cursed with a power no one could control. Roark Lyne is his worst enemy and his only hope.

The only human student at Mather’s School of Magick, Phineas Smith has a target on his back. Born with the rare ability to tap into unlimited magick, he finds both Faerie Courts want his allegiance-and will do anything to get it. They don’t realize he can’t levitate a feather, much less defend the Faerie Realm as it slips into civil war.

Unseelie Prince Roark Lyne, Phineas’s roommate-and self-proclaimed arch nemesis-is beautiful and brave and a pain in the ass. Phineas can’t begin to sort through their six years of sexual tension masquerading as mutual dislike. But Roark is also the only one able to help Finn tame his magick.

Trusting Roark’s mysterious motives may be foolish; not accepting his temporary protection would be deadly.

Caught in the middle of the impending war, Phineas and Roark forge a dangerous alliance. And as the walls between them crumble, Phineas realizes that Roark isn’t the monster he’d imagined. But their growing intimacy threatens to expose a secret that could either turn the tide of the war . . . or destroy them both.

Prince of Air and Darkness by M.A. Grant Reviews

GUYS. I love this book so much??? You guys don’t even understand. This book came out of nowhere and hit me square in the feels. WHAT THE HELL.

You have a soft human (Phineas, also known as Finny or Finn) who can’t control his tie to the ley line and has monsters coming at him from all sides, and then there’s the princely fae (Roark) who will do everything to protect Finny whilst denying he has feelings for him.

Trigger warnings for torture scenes.

So. I will say that the cover DOES NOT match the tone for the book at all. I saw the cover awhile back and without reading the blurb, I thought this was going to be a MC (motorcycle club) romance and almost didn’t pick this one up. I feel like the story is lighter than the cover suggests. This is instead, a book where two fae courts are in a tense standstill and war seems to be just on the horizon. There’s the Seelie and Unseelie Courts, also known as the Summer and Winter Courts. This book has a strange balance of funny and endearing, mixing with it scenes of torture and ANGST.

This story takes place at a college, but it’s unclear what kind of college they’re at (besides it being a school of magic for magical beings. It’s mentioned a few times that they’re getting their Master’s degree, but I’m assuming they were there for their Bachelor’s as well? I do find it interesting that Roark is going through the motions of school while being an undefined “centuries” years old.

There’s a lot happening in this book, and a lot of the world-building is confusing, but I find this book is more about the characters even though there is a lot of stuff happening in the plot. I hate getting out of a book to Google something, so I did spend the entire book confused between the differences between the unseelie and seelie beings. I’m not sure how important it is to know beforehand some of the more intricate details of faeire lore before starting this book, but I sure didn’t know a whole lot and I think I managed to get the gist of it. Roark is the second prince of the Unseelie Court and his time on campus is to be look over his Court’s subjects. His unspoken duty is that he must look after Phineas.

Phineas is a soft human boy who is built like a football player and has the biggest heart. All he wants to do is to learn how to control the ley line magic coursing through him in order to save his parent’s farm. The power of the ley line is very powerful and no one is known to have survived very long with the power, and honestly, his acceptance that he could die very soon just breaks my heart.

Roark has his own sacrifices to make too, of course. And I do love Roark a lot but I do have moments where I see him in a different light and I wonder if he really deserves the pure hearted Finn. His time before meeting Finn is one of darkness. He has made a name for himself by torturing just about anyone for information if it benefits his Court. By the time we meet Roark, he’s a different person and a lot of that does have to do with Finn, but that side of him is still a part of him. So, I feel like the one torture scene in the middle of the book I could have done without, or at least without Roark leading it.

That being SAID. I do enjoy reading Finn and Roark’s interactions with one another. It starts off kind of enemies-to-lovers, with a lot of snark between the two. But, OH, there is a LOT of pining involved and Roark consistently jumping into situations to save Finn’s life. Their interactions with one another makes me grin like a SAP and I’m pretty sure I have almost half their lines highlighted on my Kindle just because they’re so precious (even when they try to break my heart).

There are some moments of this book that remind me a LOT of what Aelin goes through with her fire in the Throne of Glass books, and even the title reminds me a lot of Cassandra Clare’s book, Queen of Air and Darkness (who is Roark’s mother’s title in this book). There are hints of the Foxhole Court books too in this story and of COURSE any mention of the ley line reminds me of the Raven Cycle books. So, there are moments in this story that feels like a mixture of YA books, rather than an adult m/m romance. This probably falls into that in-between of NA because the characters are in college and aren’t teens. There are a few sex scenes, but they’re easy enough to skip over if you don’t want to read them.

This story ends on a HFN, and I’m kind of sad that the following books in the series don’t follow with more Finn and Roark. In the vein that this book feels like so many YA books even though it’s not YA, it seems weird to switch to other characters’s stories with each new book and I feel like there are some (minor) questions left unanswered from Finn and Roark’s story. The book never shows whether or not Finn ever tells his parents what he’s decided at the end and I really wish it did. It seems empty for them to not know what’s happened, considering how sweet they are and Finn is their only child.

So, with the rest of the books in this series, well, I have THOUGHTS. I liked Sebastian in this story, but I just don’t see why we need to have a new pairing to tell the rest of the books. Because while there is an impended war, I feel like Finn and Roark could have carried on the rest of the books. But maybe that’s because I love Finn and Roark too much and just want to read more from their POVs. I have my suspicious that judging by the title for book three that it’ll be about Roark’s older brother? So, I admit that could be interesting, if we really MUST change love interests each book.

In conclusion, I love this book a lot, and while I’m sort of hesitant about the rest of the books in this series, I will still read them. -Carol (bookish_notes)

MM Fantasy is a hard subgenre for an author to get correct for my tastes. I say that because, as a reader, I don’t have a lot of stories that I’ve 4- or 5-starred.

My first read for Grant delivered so many good things though. I quite enjoyed this book.

Finn and Roarke are students at Mather’s School of Magick, but they are both in their early 20s. The book didn’t read as YA though. There is a lot of maturity in the characters that I was pleasantly surprised by.

Finn is human, but born to exceptional circumstances as he’s able to tap into the unlimited magick of the ley line. For this reason, he is hunted on a regular basis by all different creatures of this world.

His roommate, Roarke, has disliked Finn since they started school. Ok, he’s secretly been in love with Finn for years, but no one needs to know that. Certainly not his mother, the Queen, who, has abducted and tortured Finn herself to try to get access to the ley line.

The world building was fun, BUT this story did cross the line that so many fantasy stories cross, which, for me, is way too much going on. Everything but the kitchen sink is in this book. I won’t say it hindered my enjoyment, but I really wish it was a tad toned down.

What MADE this book for me was the romance. There is a definite slow burn between Finn and Roarke, since they “hate” each other.

Once feelings are revealed, however, all bets are off. I soaked up every ounce of pining to be had. The relationship angst here was all the things! It was marvelous!

So many fantasy stories lose the romance to the back burner. That was not the case here, particularly in the second half.

Tough Love: My Story of the Things Worth Fighting For AudioBook Summary

Mother, wife, scholar, diplomat, and fierce champion of American interests and values, Susan Rice powerfully connects the personal and the professional. Taught early, with tough love, how to compete and excel as an African American woman in settings where people of color are few, Susan now shares the wisdom she learned along the way.

Laying bare the family struggles that shaped her early life in Washington, DC, she also examines the ancestral legacies that influenced her. Rice’s elders—immigrants on one side and descendants of slaves on the other—had high expectations that each generation would rise. And rise they did, but not without paying it forward—in uniform and in the pulpit, as educators, community leaders, and public servants.

Susan too rose rapidly. She served throughout the Clinton administration, becoming one of the nation’s youngest assistant secretaries of state and, later, one of President Obama’s most trusted advisors.

Rice provides an insider’s account of some of the most complex issues confronting the United States over three decades, ranging from “Black Hawk Down” in Somalia to the genocide in Rwanda and the East Africa embassy bombings in the late 1990s, and from conflicts in Libya and Syria to the Ebola epidemic, a secret channel to Iran, and the opening to Cuba during the Obama years. With unmatched insight and characteristic bluntness, she reveals previously untold stories behind recent national security challenges, including confrontations with Russia and China, the war against ISIS, the struggle to contain the fallout from Edward Snowden’s NSA leaks, the U.S. response to Russian interference in the 2016 election, and the surreal transition to the Trump administration.

Although you might think you know Susan Rice—whose name became synonymous with Benghazi following her Sunday news show appearances after the deadly 2012 terrorist attacks in Libya—now, through these pages, you truly will know her for the first time. Often mischaracterized by both political opponents and champions, Rice emerges as neither a villain nor a victim, but a strong, resilient, compassionate leader.

Intimate, sometimes humorous, but always candid, Tough Love makes an urgent appeal to the American public to bridge our dangerous domestic divides in order to preserve our democracy and sustain our global leadership.

Tough Love Audiobook by Susan Rice Reviews

 “This is a breathtakingly honest account by a true American patriot about what it’s like to grow up with tough love and then deploy those values on behalf of our nation’s foreign policies. Weaving together the personal and the professional, Susan Rice describes how her upbringing in a distinguished but at times struggling family helped prepare her to be a fierce champion of American interests and survive the unfair attacks on her in the aftermath of the Benghazi tragedy. This book will not only inspire you about the true sources of America’s greatness, it will also provide some lessons in empowerment, tenacity, and fearlessness.” –Walter Isaacson, New York Times bestselling author of Leonardo da Vinci 

Susan Elizabeth Rice is one of the most gifted, tenacious, and influential foreign policy voices of our times, and in her revelatory new memoir Tough Love, she takes us to the seats of power she’s occupied from the State Department to the United Nations to the West Wing of America’s first black president, whom she served as National Security Advisor. In reading these pages, it’s easy to see why President Obama would trust her to give him the clearest assessment of the facts on any day, at any moment, and to offer him unvarnished counsel on how best to keep the country safe. At the core of Rice’s story, and brilliant career, is a fearless commitment to the truth and an unwavering devotion to the lessons she inherited as the descendent of Jamaican immigrants in Maine and enslaved Africans in South Carolina: to prize education as the path up to the American Dream and to have the confidence to be herself. In this remarkably honest examination of the opportunities and struggles confronting those charged with national security, Rice has given us an inspiring autobiography while making a critically important addition to the history of U.S. foreign policy.­— Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Harvard University

The review in The New York Times described Rice’s “retelling of the foreign policy decisions of the Clinton and Obama administrations” as “clinical.” The Times described how Rice had become a “lightning rod of partisan hatred” as she suffered the fallout for the Benghazi affair. Rice writes that she is most comfortable in the “policy-focused, behind-the-scenes roles” but was thrust into the limelight as a major player in Benghazi.

NPR called her memoir “candid” and said that she told her personal story with honesty.

Publishers Weekly called the book a “stellar debut memoir” of Rice’s “public service career”.

Know My Name Summary

‘I opened Know My Name with the intention to bear witness to the story of a survivor. Instead, I found myself falling into the hands of one of the great writers and thinkers of our time. Chanel Miller is a philosopher, a cultural critic, a deep observer, a writer’s writer, a true artist. I could not put this phenomenal book down.’ –Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Love Warrior and Untamed

‘Know My Name is a gut-punch, and in the end, somehow, also blessedly hopeful.’ –Washington Post

She was known to the world as Emily Doe when she stunned millions with a letter. Brock Turner had been sentenced to just six months in county jail after he was found sexually assaulting her on Stanford’s campus. Her victim impact statement was posted on BuzzFeed, where it instantly went viral–viewed by eleven million people within four days, it was translated globally and read on the floor of Congress; it inspired changes in California law and the recall of the judge in the case. Thousands wrote to say that she had given them the courage to share their own experiences of assault for the first time.

Now she reclaims her identity to tell her story of trauma, transcendence, and the power of words. It was the perfect case, in many ways–there were eyewitnesses, Turner ran away, physical evidence was immediately secured. But her struggles with isolation and shame during the aftermath and the trial reveal the oppression victims face in even the best-case scenarios. Her story illuminates a culture biased to protect perpetrators, indicts a criminal justice system designed to fail the most vulnerable, and, ultimately, shines with the courage required to move through suffering and live a full and beautiful life.

Know My Name will forever transform the way we think about sexual assault, challenging our beliefs about what is acceptable and speaking truth to the tumultuous reality of healing. It also introduces readers to an extraordinary writer, one whose words have already changed our world. Entwining pain, resilience, and humor, this memoir will stand as a modern classic.

The book was initially published by Viking Books, through efforts by the publisher’s editor-in-chief Andrea Schulz. Schulz took quick action after being contacted by Miller’s literary agent, Philippa Brophy. Schulz worked to acquire the rights to the book because of Miller’s writing skill and her compelling account. The same month as the book’s publication, Miller was interviewed on CBS News program 60 Minutes, where she read from her original victim impact statement.

Know My Name debuted on The New York Times Best Seller list at number five, and also made number 14 on the USA Today Best-Selling Books list. The work additionally made the list of Best-Selling Books in The Wall Street Journal.

Family Upstairs Audiobook Reviews

Miller provides one of the most moving and humanizing depictions of sexual assault I have ever read…Know My Name features the kind of intimate, coming-of-age storytelling that you don’t find in a typical story about a crime and its aftermath. She lets us see her in quiet moments and jubilant ones, in moments of doubt and moments of strength…In giving us the gift of knowing her, Miller has written a singular testament to the human cost of sexual violence, and a powerful reminder of why we fight.” The Cut

“In a world that asks too many survivors to keep their experiences to themselves and shrink their suffering to preserve someone else’s potential, Know My Name stands unapologetically large, asking others to reckon with its author’s dazzling, undiminishable presence. To read it, in spite of everything, inspires hope.”The Guardian

In September 2019, Chanel Miller revealed herself as being “Emily Doe” in the People v. Turner case and released her book with the title, Know My Name: A Memoir, on September 4, 2019. She first began work on the book in 2017. The book was an attempt by Miller to reappropriate her narrative identity and describe the trauma she went through, after being referred to in the press as “unconscious intoxicated woman”. The author discusses her experience of the assault and the trial, as well as how she has coped since then. Through research for the work, Miller perused court transcripts and testimony of individuals involved in the court proceedings—materials she had been unable to view throughout the trial of Brock Turner itself.

Family Upstairs Summary

“Rich, dark, and intricately twisted, this enthralling whodunit mixes family saga with domestic noir to brilliantly chilling effect.” —Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author

“A haunting, atmospheric, stay-up-way-too-late read.” —Megan Miranda, New York Times bestselling author

From the New York Times bestselling author of Then She Was Gone comes another page-turning look inside one family’s past as buried secrets threaten to come to light.

Be careful who you let in.

Soon after her twenty-fifth birthday, Libby Jones returns home from work to find the letter she’s been waiting for her entire life. She rips it open with one driving thought: I am finally going to know who I am.

She soon learns not only the identity of her birth parents, but also that she is the sole inheritor of their abandoned mansion on the banks of the Thames in London’s fashionable Chelsea neighborhood, worth millions. Everything in Libby’s life is about to change. But what she can’t possibly know is that others have been waiting for this day as well—and she is on a collision course to meet them.

Twenty-five years ago, police were called to 16 Cheyne Walk with reports of a baby crying. When they arrived, they found a healthy ten-month-old happily cooing in her crib in the bedroom. Downstairs in the kitchen lay three dead bodies, all dressed in black, next to a hastily scrawled note. And the four other children reported to live at Cheyne Walk were gone.

In The Family Upstairs, the master of “bone-chilling suspense” (People) brings us the can’t-look-away story of three entangled families living in a house with the darkest of secrets.

Family Upstairs Audiobook Reviews

OK, let me get this out of my system… Oh my gosh this was the best fiction book I’ve read all year and holy crap I need to get my hands on Lisa Jewell’s backlist and yeah I basically read the whole thing in two sittings and WOW. So this is my first encounter with Jewell and I was absolutely hooked. I loved the multiple perspective device she used and how it all came together. So let me lay it out for you.

Perspective 1 (3rd person): On Libby’s 25th birthday, she finds out she’s inherited a Chelsea mansion that’s been held in trust. She soon discovers the house has a dark history based on scant decades-old news coverage. Apparently there were three cult-related suicides, but 10 month old Libby was found unharmed and healthy within. What’s not to like about Libby? Her curiosity about why she was abandoned in the Chelsea house is natural because the events leading up to that left her an orphan without a past. She befriends a resourceful investigative journalist to help her dig up any clues that might help her figure out what happened.

Perspective 2 (3rd person): Lucy is living hand-to-mouth in France when her phone reminds her that The Baby is 25. Without the means or identity, she has to resort to some pretty desperate acts in order to get back to England after 24 years. Lucy’s shiftiness and secrecy makes her suspect, but she clearly has her kids’ best interest at heart. And her dramatic encounter with her ex-husband totally floored me.

Perspective 3 (1st person): Henry knows everything that happened in the house the last several years his family lived there. He knew why there were so many extra people living there, what happened to the once-opulent residence and its contents, and how and why people were found dead in black robes on the kitchen floor. Henry’s not the most reliable narrator, but as his story unfolded, the sense of desperation climaxed.

The best thing about this book is the sinister, gothic atmosphere. As I learned more about all the house’s inhabitants and why Henry and his family were prisoners in their own mansion, I got a creepy Jim Jones vibe. But it was so well done, I loved every page of it (including the hilarious acid scene), and I am going to be insisting everyone (especially fans of Chevy Stevens) read this book!

My former publicist (she didn’t die or get fired, I just changed publishers, so she’s no longer my publicist) sent me an early copy of this book. I opened it up the day before book club (this wasn’t the book club book) and I read it all in one sitting. That takes a long time, and The family upstairs was really captivating, so I didn’t have time to read the actual book club book. When I got to book club the next night, Joy got mad at me for not reading the book club book, Ashleigh told me I’m a disgrace to book club, Holly said I’ve had three warnings already and, well, let’s just say I’m no longer part of book club.
Which is awkward because it’s held at my bookstore, so now I’m not allowed in my own place of business one Friday night a month.
But whatever. They don’t know I’m still part of the book club group app, so I see what book they’re reading every month and I make sure not to read it, which means I’m basically still the same member I always was, Y’ALL CAN’T CHANGE WHO I AM.
Fartknockers.
I hated book club anyway. All they do is read.

Dear Girls: Intimate Tales, Untold Secrets & Advice for Living Your Best Life Audiobook Summary

In her hit Netflix comedy special Baby Cobra, an eight-month pregnant Ali Wong resonated so strongly that she even became a popular Halloween costume. Wong told the world her remarkably unfiltered thoughts on marriage, sex, Asian culture, working women, and why you never see new mom comics on stage but you sure see plenty of new dads.

The sharp insights and humor are even more personal in this completely original collection. She shares the wisdom she’s learned from a life in comedy and reveals stories from her life off stage, including the brutal single life in New York (i.e. the inevitable confrontation with erectile dysfunction), reconnecting with her roots (and drinking snake blood) in Vietnam, tales of being a wild child growing up in San Francisco, and parenting war stories. Though addressed to her daughters, Ali Wong’s letters are absurdly funny, surprisingly moving, and enlightening (and gross) for all.

Post-“Baby Cobra,” Wong seemingly exploded into A-list status — you know, the old “overnight” success story of someone who pounded the pavement outside freeway-adjacent motels for years. So for come-lately fans wondering, Where did this tiny filthy phenom come from?!, “Dear Girls” fills in the gaps. Wong’s study abroad program to her mom’s native Vietnam, for example, proved culturally and ideologically formative, leaving her with a taste both for exploring the outer limits of her comfort zone — so crucial to her brand of comedy — and for eating fertilized duck embryos. “It was practically still alive,” she writes of first ingesting the delicacy, “but after that moment I became really intolerant of anybody who got grossed out by something other people in the world ate for breakfast every day. Just shut the [expletive] up and eat a duck baby.”

Dear Girls by Ali Wong Reviews

“[Wong] spins a volume whose pages simultaneously shock and satisfy. . . . Dear Girls is not so much a real-talk handbook as it is a myth-puncturing manifesto.”—Vogue

“[A] refreshing, hilarious, and honest account of making a career in a male-dominated field, dating, being a mom, growing up, and so much more… Yes, this book is addressed to Wong’s daughters, but every reader will find nuggets of wisdom and inspiration and, most important, something to laugh at.”Bustle

“Absurdly funny.”Parade

Dear Girls can be crude and flippant, LOL-dense and breezy—so breezy, in fact, you will be desensitized to the grossest of Wong’s gross-outs by chapter one, at which point you have already learned how to hold in a fart during yoga. But as with her stage comedy, she is also sneakily thoughtful about the public roles she occupies—Asian American, working mom, woman on comedy stages—and the come-from-behind grind they necessarily demand.”The Washington Post

Wong’s skyrocketing success of late — from selling out mega venues on her Milk & Money tour, to starring in, co-writing and producing the hit Netflix rom-com “Always Be My Maybe” — gets lassoed down to earth with humbling, early-years anecdotes about fearing for her life on seedy tours, trying out material in clubs that doubled as laundromats and bombing in front of Eddie Murphy. “I knew Eddie Murphy specifically wasn’t laughing,” Wong writes, “because everyone knows when Eddie Murphy is or isn’t laughing. You could recognize his signature ‘HANH-HANH-HANH’ goose honk anywhere. And that night, there were no geese.”
