PUBLICATION DATE....MAY 6, 2008
What would it be like to remember all the days of your life?
Jill Price has the first diagnosed case of a memory condition called hyperthymesia– the continuous, automatic, autobiographical recall of every day of her life since she was fourteen.Give her any date from that year on and she can almost instantly tell you what day of the week it was, what she did on that day, and any major world event or cultural happening that took place, as long as she heard about it that day.Her memories are like scenes from home movies, constantly playing in her head; not only does she make no effort to call her memories to mind, she can’t stop them. Would we want to remember so much more of our lives if we could?Which memories do our minds privilege over others?Do we truly relive the times we remember most vividly, feeling the emotions that coursed through us then?Why do we forget so much, and in what ways do the workings of memory tailor the reality of what’s really happened to us in our lives? In The Woman Who Can’t Forget Jill Price welcomes us into her remarkable life and takes us on a mind-opening voyage into what life would be like if we didn’t forget; a voyage after which no reader will think of the magical role of memory in our lives in the same way again.

Closure: The Untold Story of the Ground Zero Recovery Mission
“Only those made of something stronger than steel will fail to be deeply moved by this book.”
“A very powerful and personal testament.”
“A work whose tone of modest moral authority restores…dignity to “closure” itself.”
—The New York Times
“A sound and distinct contribution to the literature on 9/11.”
—American Library Journal
“I went to Ground Zero to meet the recovery team, expecting the worst. I came away inspired. The father of this team was Lt. Bill Keegan…This slight Irish American…bore on his shoulders not only the weight of the souls of thirty-seven friends and comrades, but also the physical and psychological well-being of his men.”
—Gail Sheehy/Parade magazine

The Midnight Partner
"An astonishing, fast-paced mystery with a finale worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster. -USA TODAY
"A terrific book, full of suspense, wisdom, and humor. I loved it." --Joy Fielding, author of "See Jane Run" and "Kiss Mommy Good bye."
"More twists and plots and intriguing characters than any three adventure tales...tough to tear your eyes from."
Book Description: Nearly three years after 9/11, the war on terror is far from over. In fact, a leading terrorism expert argues that despite the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the efforts of the Department of Homeland Security, we’re not really any safer at all. Harvey Kushner, a respected adviser to the FBI, the FAA, the INS, and other government agencies, offers frightening new evidence of a unified terrorist network that is operating inside the United States and planning new opportunities to strike.
