"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

From the Editor

I devour books like Before I Go to Sleep and The Husband’s Secret, fast-paced domestic dramas with an edge of psychological suspense. So I knew I had something special when I read A. J. Banner’s chilling opening lines: I’m drowning. The river’s current is tearing me apart. I’ve kicked off my boots, but my heavy jeans cling to my legs. My chest burns with the need for air. Where is she? I’ve lost sight of her—no, there she is, too close to the falls. Her head bobs to the surface, her pale face upturned. Her lips are blue.

Banner builds a multidimensional story around our heroine, Sarah, a children’s book author whose seemingly perfect life takes a turn after a tragedy forces Sarah to question everything she once believed about her neighbors and her husband. Novels with twists are a dime a dozen, but the crux of Banner’s story is that Sarah isn’t perfect, and really no one around her is either. They are relatable and human. Sarah desperately wants a baby. A child next door desperately needs a family. And her parents and those they call friends harbor their own secrets and desires. Even as I count myself lucky that my own neighbors don’t have so much going on in their lives (that I know of!), I couldn’t wait to turn the pages, both because I knew this story would take turns I wouldn’t see coming, and because the author understands that we are all imperfect, all searching for love and belonging and a safe place to call home.

As the action moves toward a breathtaking climax at the river’s edge, with two lives in danger, this story of survival and renewal, of hidden and dark obsessions, will have you wondering just how well you know the people closest to you.
