A close-up examination and exploration, How We Live Now challenges our old concepts of what it means to be a family and have a home, opening the door to the many diverse and thriving experiments of living in twenty-first century America. Across America and around the world, in cities and suburbs and small towns, people from all walks of life are redefining our “lifespaces”—the way we live and who we live with. The traditional nuclear family in their single-family home on a suburban lot has lost its place of prominence in contemporary life. Today, Americans have more choices than ever before in creating new ways to live and meet their personal needs and desires. Social scientist, researcher, and writer Bella DePaulo has traveled across America to interview people experimenting with the paradigm of how we live. In How We Live Now, she explores everything from multi-generational homes to cohousing communities where one’s “family” is made up of friends and neighbors to couples “living apart together” to single-living, and ultimately uncovers a pioneering landscape for living that throws the old blueprint out the window. Through personal interviews and stories, media accounts, and in-depth research, How We Live Now explores thriving lifespaces, and offers the reader choices that are freer, more diverse, and more attuned to our modern needs for the twenty-first century and beyond.

From the Booker Prize-winning, bestselling author of Possession: a deeply affecting story of a singular family. When children’s book author Olive Wellwood’s oldest son discovers a runaway named Philip sketching in the basement of a museum, she takes him into the storybook world of her family and friends. But the joyful bacchanals Olive hosts at her rambling country house—and the separate, private books she writes for each of her seven children—conceal more treachery and darkness than Philip has ever imagined. The Wellwoods’ personal struggles and hidden desires unravel against a breathtaking backdrop of the cliff-lined shores of England to Paris, Munich, and the trenches of the Somme, as the Edwardian period dissolves into World War I and Europe’s golden era comes to an end. From the Trade Paperback edition.

"Just Really Joseph" is a charming children's book about adoption, identity, and family. This warm and welcoming story follows a day in the life of two young brothers who have different skin colors. "Just Really Joseph" provides affirming, age-appropriate ways to talk about race and transracial adoption. As an adoptive mom, Kayla Craig scoured the internet for a children's book about adoption that would help foster conversation about her adopted son's identity, skin color, and his birth mother. When her search came up short, she began brainstorming a relatable, heartfelt children's book that compassionately connects with children. Inspired by Joseph (who's six and joined her family via international adoption) and Asher (who's three and joined her family the old-fashioned way!), Kayla wrote "Just Really Joseph" -- a story about adoption, and what just really makes a family. "Just Really Joseph" is a book not only for adoptive families, but for biological families, too. With charming illustrations and a relatable tale, "Just Really Joseph" helps preschool and elementary-aged children understand that families don't have to match. All sales of "Just Really Joseph" will flow directly to Katelyn's Fund Orphan Ministry, a 501(c)3 that advocates for vulnerable children in Haiti, as well as provide international and domestic adoption grants to families across the U.S. "I hope that a few minutes of reading "Just Really Joseph" will, as my son Joseph says, "make your heart just really happy." To all the little ones, all the parents who love them, and a God who makes all things new." - Kayla Craig, author of "Just Really Joseph"

In a sprawling estate Morgan Fletcher, the disfigured heir to a fortune of mysterious origins, spends his days in quiet study, avoiding his reflection in mirrors and the lake at the end of his garden. Two children, Moira and David, appear, and Morgan gives them free reign of the mansion he shares with his housekeeper Engel. Then more children begin to show up. They make bizarre discoveries in the mansion attics, and seem to disappear into the hidden rooms of the estate-- and perhaps into the hidden corners of Morgan's mind.
