Mirror in the Sky
The Life and Music of Stevie Nicks

by Simon Morrison

A stunning musical biography of Stevie Nicks that paints a portrait of an artist, not a caricature of a superstar.

This biography from distinguished music historian Simon Morrison examines Nicks as a singer and songwriter before and beyond her career with Fleetwood Mac, from the Arizona landscape of her childhood to the strobe-lit Night of 1000 Stevies celebrations.

“Written with respect and admiration, Mirror in the Sky analyzes Stevie Nicks’s music with care, noting how it expressed the sentiments of a generation.”—Foreword Reviews

“Too often, of course, the colonizing function of language goes about its invisible work without comment, but in Dictee each scene, each image, each poem or letter purposefully refers us back to it.”—Paris Review

Justice, Justice Thou Shalt Pursue
A Life’s Work Fighting for a More Perfect Union

by Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Amanda L. Tyler

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s last book is a curation of her own legacy, tracing the long history of her work for gender equality and a “more perfect Union.”

“Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a feminist icon, a legal titan, and an inspiration to so many, including me. Her final work gives readers a glimpse at the person behind the accomplishments and shines a light on her life and legacy as she saw it…”—Hillary Rodham Clinton, former United States Secretary of State
