A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER WINNER OF THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FOR NONFICTION 'A major book that I suspect will come to be considered among the essential memoirs of this vexing decade' New York Times Book Review In 1961, Sarah M. Broom's mother Ivory Mae bought a shotgun house in the then-promising neighborhood of New Orleans East and built her world inside of it. It was the height of the Space Race and the neighborhood was home to a major NASA plant - the postwar optimism seemed assured. Widowed, Ivory Mae remarried Sarah's father Simon Broom; their combined family would eventually number twelve children. But after Simon died, six months after Sarah's birth, the house would become Ivory Mae's thirteenth and most unruly child. A book of great ambition, Sarah M. Broom's The Yellow House tells a hundred years of her family and their relationship to home in a neglected area of one of America's most mythologized cities. This is the story of a mother's struggle against a house's entropy, and that of a prodigal daughter who left home only to reckon with the pull that home exerts, even after the Yellow House was wiped off the map after Hurricane Katrina. The Yellow House expands the map of New Orleans to include the stories of its lesser known natives, guided deftly by one of its native daughters, to demonstrate how enduring drives of clan, pride, and familial love resist and defy erasure. Located in the gap between the 'Big Easy' of tourist guides and the New Orleans in which Broom was raised, The Yellow House is a brilliant memoir of place, class, race, the seeping rot of inequality, and the internalized shame that often follows. It is a transformative, deeply moving story from an unparalleled new voice of startling clarity, authority and power.

THE YELLOW HOUSE delves into the passion and politics of Northern Ireland at the beginning of the 20th Century. Eileen O'Neill's family is torn apart by religious intolerance and secrets from the past. Determined to reclaim her ancestral home and reunite her family, Eileen begins working at the local mill, saving her money and holding fast to her dream. As war is declared on a local and global scale, Eileen cannot separate the politics from the very personal impact the conflict has had on her own life. She is soon torn between two men, each drawing her to one extreme. One is a charismatic and passionate political activist determined to win Irish independence from Great Britain at any cost, who appeals to her warrior's soul. The other is the wealthy and handsome black sheep of the pacifist family who owns the mill where she works, and whose persistent attention becomes impossible for her to ignore.

Winner of the 2018 The Australian/Vogel's Literary Award Even before I knew anything about Granddad Les, Wally and me sometimes dared each other to see how close to the knackery we could get. It was way out in the bottom paddock, and Dad had banned us from going further than the dam. Wally said it was because the whole paddock was haunted. He said he could see ghosts wisping in the grass like sheets blown from the washing line. But even then I knew for sure that was a lie. Ten-year-old Cub lives with her parents, older brother Cassie, and twin brother Wally on a lonely property bordering an abandoned cattle farm and knackery. Their lives are shadowed by the infamous actions of her Granddad Les in his yellow weatherboard house, just over the fence. Although Les died twelve years ago, his notoriety has grown in Cub's lifetime and the local community have ostracised the whole family. When Cub's estranged aunt Helena and cousin Tilly move next door into the yellow house, the secrets the family want to keep buried begin to bubble to the surface. And having been kept in the dark about her grandfather's crimes, Cub is now forced to come to terms with her family's murky history. The Yellow House is a powerful novel about loyalty and betrayal; about the legacies of violence and the possibilities of redemption.

Un matrimonio en plena crisis viaja en coche con sus dos hijos pequeños desde Nueva York hasta Arizona. Ambos son documentalistas y cada uno se concentra en un proyecto propio: él está tras los rastros de la última banda apache; ella busca documentar la diáspora de niños que llega a la frontera del país en busca de asilo. Mientras el coche familiar atraviesa el vasto territorio norteamericano, los dos niños escuchan las conversaciones e historias de sus padres y a su manera confunden noticias de la crisis migratoria con la historia del genocidio de los pueblos originales de Norteamérica. En la imaginación de los niños, las historias de violencia y de resistencia política colisionan, entrelazándose en una aventura que es la historia de una familia, un país y un continente

Just when Dave thought things couldn't get any worse, the world proved him wrong. This is nothing like other coming-of-age stories you have read before. After moving to a -developed- country in the hopes of escaping from the memories of his encounter with a child molester, life threw even more shit at poor Dave, like racists, education scammers, druggies, homophobes, and religious freaks. Oh, and yes, even more pedophiles! Despite all the challenges, an unexpected act of kindness gave Dave the courage to feel love again and somehow, the whole thing turned out to be the weirdest investment lesson ever. --- --- --- Written as a series of letters addressed to a neighboring family, Dear People in the Yellow House is a raw, gritty, and heart-felt confession of past pain and hopes of future joy. In a tale that spans two continents, Dave graphically details the poor judgment, betrayal, and manipulation he faced at the hands of those who were supposed to care for him, as well as horrifying experiences with a justice system that has lost its own sense of purpose. Through these brutally honest letters, Dave describes all that he has learned along the way: that being evil is a choice, and that you can avoid getting hurt by those who chose to be evil only through being diligent and prudently managing your risks and those of the people who matter to you the most. A must-read for families about to send their loved ones abroad and anyone with mini-adults they care about. Seriously, no one should have to endure these predicaments the way Dave did. --- --- --- Visit us at: www.davekardee.com

"The first time I heard Chiwan Choi read, I had no idea what to expect. By the time he was done a few minutes later, I was shaken, almost vibrating with the energy of his voice, his line. The poems in his latest, The Yellow House, show that this energy has only intensified over time. There's a kind of low-key power to his writing that can be casually devastating--a naked, a cappella warbling that can rise, in an instant, to the ecstatic." --Charles Yu, author of How to Live Safely in a Science-Fictional Universe
