All quiet is not created equal. In this irresistibly charming picture book, many different quiet moments are captured, from the anticipation-heavy “Top of the roller coaster quiet” to the shocked-into-silence “First look at your new hairstyle quiet.” The impossibly sweet bears, rabbits, fish, birds, and iguanas are all rendered in soft pencils and colored digitally, and, as in all of the best picture books, the illustrations propel the story far beyond the words. A sure-to-be-a-classic bedtime favorite.

The book that started the Quiet Revolution At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over working in teams. It is to introverts—Rosa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Seuss, Steve Wozniak—that we owe many of the great contributions to society. In Quiet, Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. She charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to permeate our culture. She also introduces us to successful introverts—from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions. Passionately argued, superbly researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves. Now with Extra Libris material, including a reader’s guide and bonus content

Poetry. "Pattie McCarthy's QUIET BOOK keeps its steady gaze trained on the mother/child unit—from the inside out and back in again. In gorgeous poems of formal range and daring, McCarthy gives us birth and motherhood like no other writer—she is unafraid, she is wry and at times she is deeply tender. This is the 'everyday opera' of real life: the drama of bodies as matter of fact, the essential material of being human. In the book's third and brilliant section, a series of ekphrastic poems on mostly fifteenth and sixteenth paintings of women and children remind us that the breast, the mouth, the food, the hands, the labor—these attributes of human life are indeed timeless. We look at the past to find ourselves, and what we find in ourselves is exhaustion, which is love, which is power."—Julie Carr "If the body is the soul, what of that to which a body gives birth? Pattie McCarthy's remarkable QUIET BOOK interrogates what is made, what is received, and what is unknown. Charting English as 'a daughter language,' McCarthy skillfully tracks etymologies, figurations, images, forms, and functions of the feminine as bodily experience and as aesthetic encounter. This brilliantly moving collection challenges our received grammars of representation and calls for a reinvention of our domestic spaces, a recalibration of our collective interiority."—Tonya Foster

A moving, sweet and uplifting novel of love, grief and the heartache of letting go, from a wonderful new Australian author. Cate Carlton has recently died, yet she is able to linger on, watching her three young children and her husband as they come to terms with their life without her on their rural horse property. As the months pass and her children grow, they cope in different ways, drawn closer and pulled apart by their shared loss. And all Cate can do is watch on helplessly, seeing their grief, how much they miss her and how - heartbreakingly - they begin to heal. Gradually unfolding to reveal Cate's life, her marriage, and the unhappy secret she shared with one of her children, In the Quiet is compelling, simple, tender, true - heartbreaking and uplifting in equal measure. 'In the Quiet is an accomplished first book from an exciting new talent. I fell in love with it slowly, over the course of many chapters. It's a quiet book (appropriately named) and an utterly lovely one.' Readings 'Uplifting and heartwarming ... a beautiful depiction of Australian rural life' Better Reading 'This hearttugging first novel is a beautifully paced mixture of romance, family saga and mystery' Adelaide Advertiser 'A glorious book that will make you cry, guaranteed. But it's also uplifting and tender. A surprise find.' Canberra Times 'You will weep, and marvel, and pass this book on, and on, to your friends.'
