Butts

release date: Nov 29, 2022
Butts
One of Esquire’s 20 Best Books of Fall • One of Time’s Most Anticipated Books of Fall “A deeply thought, rigorously researched, and riveting history of human butts. Radke knows exactly when to approach her subject with levity and when with gravity. A pitch perfect debut.” —Melissa Febos, bestselling author of Girlhood and Body Work Whether we love them or hate them, think they’re sexy, think they’re strange, consider them too big, too small, or anywhere in between, humans have a complicated relationship with butts. It is a body part unique to humans, critical to our evolution and survival, and yet it has come to signify so much more: sex, desire, comedy, shame. A woman’s butt, in particular, is forever being assessed, criticized, and objectified, from anxious self-examinations trying on jeans in department store dressing rooms to enduring crass remarks while walking down a street or high school hallways. But why? In Butts: A Backstory, reporter, essayist, and RadioLab contributing editor Heather Radke is determined to find out. Spanning nearly two centuries, this “whip-smart” (Publishers Weekly, starred review) cultural history takes us from the performance halls of 19th-century London to the aerobics studios of the 1980s, the music video set of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” and the mountains of Arizona, where every year humans and horses race in a feat of gluteal endurance. Along the way, she meets evolutionary biologists who study how butts first developed; models whose measurements have defined jean sizing for millions of women; and the fitness gurus who created fads like “Buns of Steel.” She also examines the central importance of race through figures like Sarah Bartmann, once known as the “Venus Hottentot,” Josephine Baker, Jennifer Lopez, and other women of color whose butts have been idolized, envied, and despised. Part deep dive reportage, part personal journey, part cabinet of curiosities, Butts is an entertaining, illuminating, and thoughtful examination of why certain silhouettes come in and out of fashion—and how larger ideas about race, control, liberation, and power affect our most private feelings about ourselves and others.

At his disposal is a deadly and merciless army that has been awaiting this very war, an army as unstoppable as it is relentless.

Speech and Debacles

Speech and Debacles
FROM EXCITING AUTHOR OF YOUNG ADULT ROMANCE HEATHER DIANGELIS Who knew Speech and Debate could be such a thorn in the side? Drama class is nothing like Taryn Platt''s favorite TV show—no one has broken out into song yet, and there isn''t nearly as much kissing. But the seventeen-year-old is surprised to find one thing going the way she''d hoped. It turns out she''s not half bad at acting. When her Drama teacher recruits her for the school''s powerhouse Speech and Debate team, she can''t believe her luck. Even better when she finds out the guy catching her eye, Riker, is one of the team''s strongest competitors—and hopefully he got the hint that she likes boys as well as girls. But when painful, amped-up cramps invade her pelvis, performing on demand and getting close to Riker become increasingly less feasible. Up until junior year, Riker Lucas had one life goal—break into the world of voice acting to perform video game voiceovers. Then one look from the green-eyed new girl from Speech brings on a second goal—getting himself over the hurdle of actually talking to her. The task proves impossible when a nagging inner voice constantly reminds him how worthless he is, how he doesn''t stand a chance. Taryn''s pain worsens, keeping her out of commission at the most inopportune moments, and Riker''s oppressive self-denigrating thoughts steal his interest from his favorite activities. As Riker and Taryn float closer together, then farther apart, they both must work to find ways of coping—or they''ll miss out on each other as well as their performance goals.

This begins a series of trips to the hospital that soon become Anna’s norm.

Anna’s world is turned upside down, and as she learns to cope with her illness, she finds herself drifting further and further away from her former life. Her friends don’t seem to understand, running track is out of the question, and the other kids at the disease clinic she attends once a week are a cruel reminder that things will never be the same. From debut author Heather Kamins comes a beautiful and evocative story about one girl’s journey of choosing who she wants to be--in a life she never planned for.

Her assignment is simple: figure out why several unregistered vampires are going rogue-including one that ruined her best suit-and attacking humans. Her investigation leads her to Thinner, a new celebrity-endorsed weight loss company that''s shrouded in mystery and promises seemingly impossible results. Mina''s convinced she''ll finish her mission in time for dinner, but when she face-plants into Carma Nicks, Thinner''s smart and sexy vice president, Mina''s suddenly out of her depth. Surely her heart is only racing due to adrenaline, right? Falling for-and sleeping with-a mark goes 100% against protocol, but Mina''s plans to keep her distance are as flimsy as the agency-issued ghost that resides in her apartment. When Thinner''s secrets disrupt the peace between supernaturals and humans-and threaten Carma''s life-Mina''s forced to choose between protecting her dream career or saving the woman she loves.
