Come Together

The Science (and Art) of Creating Lasting Sexual Connections

In Come Together, Nagoski takes on a fundamentally misunderstood subject: sex in long-term relationships.

Nagoski breaks down the myths many of us have been taught about sex—for instance, the belief that sexual satisfaction and desire are highest at the beginning of a relationship and that they will inevitably decline the longer that relationship lasts. Nagoski assures us that’s not true.

All About Love

"The word "love" is most often defined as a noun, yet...we would all love better if we used it as a verb," writes Bell Hooks as she comes out fighting and on fire inAll About Love.

Here, at her most provocative and intensely personal, the renowned scholar, cultural critic, and feminist skewers our view of love as romance. In its place she offers a proactive new ethic for a people and a society bereft with lovelessness.

You can't go wrong with this feminist classic- the perfect gift this valentines season.

Barbie : The Screenplay

She's everything. He's just Ken.

For the first time, the BARBIE screenplay is now available in print. Anarchically hilarious and unexpectedly emotional, BARBIE is a magical cinematic confection of absurdity, heart, and Technicolor musicals. Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach have created a deeply personal and idiosyncratic film from the polarizing icon that is the Barbie doll.
