After Elena Ferrante, another powerful Italian voice emerges to tell us a tale of immigration with two strong women characters at its center, set against the background of American history, from the late 60’s to 2011.

This novel provides an interesting commentary on the highlights in history that influenced the development of American society and brought about the current outcome. It includes love, struggle, and social turmoil.

Amy’s Story begins with Amy, full name America, moving from Italy to New York City to live near her American father. Her journey from immigrant to successful publisher is intertwined with Stella, her childhood friend, whose unfinished memoir she intends to publish.

They both experience love, friendship, obstacles, success, and more, as their journey runs parallel to the Vietnam War, student protests and the Kent State shooting, the birth of radicalism and feminism, presidential elections and assassinations, the Watergate scandal, up to the 9/11 attack and beyond.

In the end, Stella's memoir does not get published, because Amy transforms it into a very successful novel. This twist will have readers re-imagine the entire story and see it from a surprising new perspective.

"Amy's Story is simply spellbinding. This is a story at once about identity, love and social upheaval; a woman's journey from old world to new; from Italy to America. Mysterious, brave and captivating."
—Joe McGinniss Jr., author of Carousel Court and The Delivery Man

“From the collapsing towers of 9/11 to the lyrical groves of northern Italy, the author ingeniously morphs Amy’s Story into a journey across America and back and forth across time. Along the way we meet a cohort of colorful characters, witness several romances, and there are wars and politics, too—all woven into a mesmerizing narrative that unspools like a good film. Anna Lawton is not only a scholar of the first rank, but a deft and artful novelist with a flair for the unexpected in her work.”
—Louis Menashe, author of Moscow Believes in Tears: Russians and Their Movies
The cult classic that predicted the rise of fake news—revised and updated for the post-Trump, post-Gawker age.
 
Hailed as "astonishing and disturbing" by the Financial Times and "essential reading" by TechCrunch at its original publication, former American Apparel marketing director Ryan Holiday’s first book sounded a prescient alarm about the dangers of fake news. It's all the more relevant today. 

Trust Me, I’m Lying was the first book to blow the lid off the speed and force at which rumors travel online—and get "traded up" the media ecosystem until they become real headlines and generate real responses in the real world. The culprit? Marketers and professional media manipulators, encouraged by the toxic economics of the news business.
 
Whenever you see a malicious online rumor costs a company millions, politically motivated fake news driving elections, a product or celebrity zooming from total obscurity to viral sensation, or anonymously sourced articles becoming national conversation, someone is behind it. Often someone like Ryan Holiday.
 
As he explains, “I wrote this book to explain how media manipulators work, how to spot their fingerprints, how to fight them, and how (if you must) to emulate their tactics. Why am I giving away these secrets? Because I’m tired of a world where trolls hijack debates, marketers help write the news, opinion masquerades as fact, algorithms drive everything to extremes, and no one is accountable for any of it. I’m pulling back the curtain because it’s time the public understands how things really work. What you choose to do with this information is up to you.”
