More praise for @donnakaz's memoir UN/MASKED! @TheFrontRowNYC @skyhorsepub
"Throughout this memoir, Kaz collapses the various layers of her life – thwarted actress, budding writer, latent activist, undiscovered feminist – to step out from behind the mask of her personal history. She declares: I’m still here and I like it. And I’m not going away."--Sarah Downs, Front Row Center

@glamourmag features @nancyborowick in the February 2017 issue! #THEFAMILYIMPRINT on sale May '17 from @HatjeCantz. #cancer #life #family

"When Nancy Borowick’s parents were both diagnosed with cancer (Dad, pancreatic; Mom, breast cancer), she did what she’d been doing all her life: She picked up her camera.
Barber Shop My parents and I had an awareness of time, which I realize now was a gift. This photograph was taken as Dad helped cut Mom’s hair. Diagnosed at 42, she didn’t expect it to come back, twice. This wasn’t the first time they had to do this, so they were far beyond feelings of sadness and anger. A dance party followed!"

@CharlesEaly gives #THEGIRLINGREEN by@derekbmiller a great review!! @dallasnews @HMHbooks

"There's no need to spoil anything, but be assured that Miller sets up a situation that's full of tension, surprises and brutal commentary on the Mideast political situation, especially the role that the U.S. and its allies have played in the region's destabilization. But this is not screed against U.S. policy. Rather, it's the story of a seemingly clueless U.S. soldier and a more worldly journalist who come together to see if they can salvage any hope from the quagmire of war.

As you'll discover in The Girl in Green, Miller is a master of keeping just enough information from the reader to deliver one surprise after another. Some of those surprises are quite troubling and make you question whether you're rooting for the right people. But others are quite heartening. Sort of like life."--Charles Ealy, The Dallas Morning News

A fun but enraging excerpt from UN/MASKED by @DonnaKaz on @AlterNet today! @SkyhorsePub @bscharfbooks @Alexxx_Hexxx @Jenny_Pierson
"Kaz’s recollections of her experience reveal the shocking depth of the misogyny specific to the New York theater and Los Angeles film industries—as well as the complexity of the Guerrilla Girls’ cause, from intersectional feminism to the best methods to call out sexism."

Novelist @robinbgaines featured in the Detroit Free Press, discussing her debut novel #InvincibleSummers! @ELJPublications @freep

"That 'Invincible Summers,' which she finished in 2008, took eight years to get into print doesn’t seem to faze the late-budding novelist. She’s already well into her next novel."

Historian #NathanStoltzfus weighed in on the Trump/Hitler comparisons for @thedailybeast last month. Worth reading! #HitlersCompromises @yalepress

"The United States is not now facing a 'Weimar moment,' because the sense of crisis is not nearly as palpable and widespread as it was in Weimar Germany. Trump also does not seem driven like Hitler to slip history itself into a straightjacket cut to his own ideology, and his criminal cunning is less acute."

ICYMI, a very thoughtful review for #OrdinarilyWell from @SStossel in @nytimes! @PeterDKramer @fsgbooks

"You will most likely come away convinced by [Kramer's] argument for the efficacy of antidepressants — and moved by his humane concern for his patients, and for the needless suffering of unmedicated patients around the world."--Scott Stossel, The New York Times Book Review
