In 1967, when Jo Ivester was ten years old, her father transplanted his young family from a suburb of Boston to a small town in the heart of the Mississippi cotton fields, where he became the medical director of a clinic that served the poor population for miles around. But ultimately it was not Ivester’s father but her mother—a stay-at-home mother of four who became a high school English teacher when the family moved to the South—who made the most enduring mark on the town. In The Outskirts of Hope, Ivester uses journals left by her mother, as well as writings of her own, to paint a vivid, moving, and inspiring portrait of her family’s experiences living and working in an all-black town during the height of the civil rights movement.

In this brilliant, breathtaking book by Pulitzer Prize winner Katherine Boo, a bewildering age of global change and inequality is made human through the dramatic story of families striving toward a better life in Annawadi, a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport. As India starts to prosper, the residents of Annawadi are electric with hope. Abdul, an enterprising teenager, sees “a fortune beyond counting” in the recyclable garbage that richer people throw away. Meanwhile Asha, a woman of formidable ambition, has identified a shadier route to the middle class. With a little luck, her beautiful daughter, Annawadi’s “most-everything girl,” might become its first female college graduate. And even the poorest children, like the young thief Kalu, feel themselves inching closer to their dreams. But then Abdul is falsely accused in a shocking tragedy; terror and global recession rock the city; and suppressed tensions over religion, caste, sex, power, and economic envy turn brutal. With intelligence, humor, and deep insight into what connects people to one another in an era of tumultuous change, Behind the Beautiful Forevers, based on years of uncompromising reporting, carries the reader headlong into one of the twenty-first century’s hidden worlds—and into the hearts of families impossible to forget.

We were the skaters, wavers, freaks, faggots, punks, goths, outsiders, and losers. We were punched, shoved, pushed, kicked, judged, beat up, beat down, and humiliated. In other words... we were teenagers. Every generation has its misfits. The Freak Table transports us to the starched suburbs of late-80s Denver where skateboarding’s a crime and listening to underground rock is akin to devil worship. Author Gavin Hignight’s adolescent narrator trades the safety of conformity for the post-punk music scene, choosing to suffer the consequences that come with being yourself. The Freak Table is a story for anyone who has ever felt alienated, hated or misunderstood. It’s the adventure of the kids who didn’t fit in, the tale of how they banded together to fight a battle called high school. Their trials hint at a larger rebellion at hand, a call for individuality that reverberated across the nation. About the Author- Gavin Hignight is the writer of the graphic novel Motor City and the webcomic The Concrete World. He’s written for the animated TV series’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Iron Man: Armored Adventures. He’s also worked as an actor, fashion model, film director and marketing manager. He is a native of Denver, Colorado now living and working in Los Angeles. The Freak Table is his first novel.
