Description : #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER What Melania wants, Melania gets. The former director of special events at Vogue and producer of nine legendary Met Galas, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff met Melania Knauss in 2003 and had a front row seat to the transformation of Donald Trump’s then girlfriend from a rough-cut gem to a precious diamond. As their friendship deepened over lunches at Manhattan hot spots, black-tie parties, and giggle sessions in the penthouse at Trump Tower, Wolkoff watched the newest Mrs. Trump raise her son, Barron, and manage her highly scrutinized marriage. After Trump won the 2016 election, Wolkoff was recruited to help produce the 58th Presidential Inaugu­ration and to become the First Lady’s trusted advisor. Melania put Wolkoff in charge of hiring her staff, organizing her events, helping her write speeches, and creating her debut initiatives. Then it all fell apart when she was made the scapegoat for inauguration finance irregularities. Melania could have defended her innocent friend and confidant, but she stood by her man, knowing full well who was really to blame. The betrayal nearly destroyed Wolkoff. In this candid and emotional memoir, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff takes you into Trump Tower and the White House to tell the funny, thrilling, and heartbreaking story of her intimate friendship with one of the most famous women in the world, a woman few people truly understand. How did Melania react to the Access Hollywood tape and her husband’s affair with Stormy Daniels? Does she get along well with Ivanka? Why did she wear that jacket with “I really don’t care, do u?” printed on the back? Is Melania happy being First Lady? And what really happened with the inauguration’s funding of $107 million? Wolkoff has some ideas...

Description : A former adviser and close friend of first lady Melania Trump's is now blasting the entire Trump family as a callous clan tainted by "deceit" and "deception," and claiming she's still "working with investigators" to dig into potential financial crimes committed in connection with Donald Trump's inauguration in early 2017."It was amateur hour then, and it's amateur hour now, and I think it's really frightening for our country," Stephanie Winston Wolkoff said in an exclusive interview with ABC News's Linsey Davis, a day before the release of her new book, "Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady.""Everyone does need to know what ... this presidency is doing and what this propaganda machine behind this man at the White House is doing," she added.Winston Wolkoff refused to confirm or deny recent reports that she secretly recorded conversations with Melania Trump and even captured the first lady disparaging the president's older children.In her book, Winston Wolkoff wrote that Melania once described Ivanka Trump and family members working in the White House as a bunch of "snakes.""I'm not going to comment on whether there's audio or not," Winston Wolkoff said. But, she insisted, "I can back up everything that's in the book 100% ... and Donald and Melania know that."Stephanie Grisham, Melania Trump's chief of staff and spokeswoman, called Winston Wolkoff's book a collection of "mistruths" and "revenge" tactics, saying, "Anybody who secretly tapes their self-described best friend is, by definition, dishonest."Get your copy today by scrolling up and clicking Buy Now to get your copy today

Description : The first behind-the-scenes look at the life of the most enigmatic First Lady in U.S. history Melania Trump is an enigma. Regardless of your political leanings, she is fascinating—a First Lady who, in many ways, is the most modern and groundbreaking in recent history. A former model whose beauty in person leaves people breathless, a woman whose upbringing in a communist country spurred a relentless drive for stability, both for herself and for her family. A reluctant pillar in a controversial presidential administration who speaks five languages and runs the East Wing like none of her predecessors ever could—underestimate her at your own peril (as a former government official did and was summarily fired). But who is she really? In Free, Melania we get an insider's look at Melania Trump, from her childhood in Slovenia to her days in the White House, and everything in between. We see the Trump family dynamics that Melania has had to navigate, including her strained relationship with Ivanka. We get a rare glimpse into what goes into her famous and sometimes infamous clothing choices (including perhaps the real message behind Melania’s controversial jacket, “I Really Don’t Care, Do U?”, which she wore while visiting the U.S.-Mexico border), and how a publicly quiet Melania actually speaks very loudly—if you just know where, and how, to listen. And we get a behind-the-scenes look at her often eyebrow-raising relationship with Donald Trump, from their beginnings to becoming the most unusual First Family in modern history. Looking at Melania in the pantheon of historic First Ladies, Kate Bennett shows just how different Melania Trump is and why she matters. Bennett, an expert on First Ladies, has unparalleled access to Melania’s very small and loyal inner circle. As she shows in this page-turning book, the seemingly most reluctant First Lady is, in many ways, the most compelling and complex First Lady, ever.

Description : "Clever and hilarious." -- Joe Conklin, WIP Morning Show Was Melania Trump only a model? What is she thinking when she stares lifelessly at her husband? Does she regret her decision to become a trophy piece for a misogynistic buffoon? These are just some of the questions that are not definitely answered in this collection of humorous essays.After three years impersonating Melania Trump, actor and comedian Lauren LoGiudice is telling you everything she overheard while living in her skin. Like a regular sleuth LoGiudice gathered together all of the "actor hunches" that Melania's spirit whispered in her ear throughout their time together and typed them up for you to enjoy. She lifts the veil of mystery around the First Lady and goes right for the jewel-encrusted jugular.In Inside Melania you'll laugh through the scary-but-real to the absurd as "Melania" fills in the blanks of her mysterious past with diary entries and newspaper articles, reimagines Grimms' Fairy Tales and A Christmas Carol as allegories for her present position, unveils the subtexts of her Tweets and the secret non-meanings of her outfits, and, most importantly, reveals her secret rap fetish and Andrew Dice Clay impression. If you're frustrated by the current political climate and need a laugh than this will be your welcome reprieve."If Melania Trump is a woman re-born in America, a woman who changed her language, her country, her lifestyle, and even her body, the only thing that remained was her ambition to be the first lady of the world, then this book - Inside Melania - is her mirror. A comical mirror of her reality."-- Bojan Požar, Slovenian journalist and author of Melania Trump: The Inside Story"When I first spotted the cover of Inside Melania, I couldn't think of anyone I was less interested in learning more about than that soulless gold-digger. Then I opened the book and couldn't put it down. Lauren masterfully used satire, parody and irony to process the Slovenian Ice Queen through every comedic literary device in the English language, from fairy tales to dirty nursery rhymes to rap. Lauren's book returned me to the essential power and joy of good comedy, and showed me there were a lot of laughs inside a soulless gold-digger." -- Ritch Shydner, author of Kicking Through The Ashes - My Life As A Stand-up in the 1980's Comedy Boom"LoGiudice brings us the most authentic version of Melania Trump known to Melania Trump." -- Radhika Vaz, comedian and author of Unladylike: A Memoir"This book is proof that Lauren does her homework with every single aspect of her characters."-- John Di Domenico, Emmy Award Nominated Actor, Writer, Comedian, and Impersonator, Conan O'Brien, Trumpcast, Amazon Prime's Fake News: A Trump StoryLauren LoGiudice creates comedy through deeply flawed and painfully idiosyncratic characters. She has embodied some of the world's most mysterious cultural icons, including Greta Garbo, Melania Trump, Mary Poppins, and all of the women in her Italian-American family. Her work has been featured by The New York Times, BBC, Bust Magazine, McSweeney's Internet Tendency, Hyperallergic, La Voce di New York, among others. Her writing has been called "criminal."

Description : Melania the Younger: From Rome to Jerusalem explores the richly detailed story of Melania, an early fifth-century Roman Christian aristocrat who renounced her staggering wealth to lead a life of ascetic renunciation. Hers is a tale of "riches to rags." Born to high Roman aristocracy in the late fourth century, Melania encountered numerous difficulties posed by family members, Roman officials, and historical circumstances in disposing of her wealth, property (spread across at least eight Roman provinces), and thousands of slaves. Leaving Rome with her entourage a few years before Alaric the Goth's sack of Rome in 410, she journeyed to Sicily, then to North Africa, finally settling in Jerusalem-all while founding monasteries along the way. Towards the end of her life, she traveled to Constantinople (present-day Istanbul) in an attempt to convert to Christianity her still-pagan uncle, who was on a state mission to the eastern Roman court. Throughout her life, she was accustomed to meet and be assisted by emperors and empresses, bishops, and other high dignitaries. Embracing a fairly extreme asceticism, Melania died in Jerusalem in 439. A new English translation of her Life, composed by a long-time assistant who succeeded her in the direction of the male and female monasteries in Jerusalem, accompanies this biographical study.

Description : This volume provides an anthology of about 40 primary source documents that describe the work of religious communities that took care of pilgrims and the sick in the late antique and early medieval world. The project identifies letters, diary accounts, instructions, sermons, travelogues, and community records and rules that give us a window into a world of early communities that saw it as their duty and their privilege to care for the sick, to safeguard the pilgrim, and to host the stranger. Each document is placed in historical, geographical, and social context as it contributes to an emerging picture of these communities. The volume addresses the motivations and practices of communities that risked extending hospitality. Why did these communities take great risks for the socially vulnerable? What stake did they have in pilgrims and the sick? What communal experiences supported and sustained both the communities and their audiences? How was hospitality cultivated?

Description : At home or at the podium, the First Lady is uniquely poised to serve as advisor, confidant, and campaigner, with the power to shape American political and social conversation. At first blush, First Ladies Michelle Obama and Melania Trump appear categorically different from each other; however, as women rising from humble origins to pursue their ambitions and support their husbands, the two have more in common than one might think. In Melania & Michelle: First Ladies in a New Era, author Tammy R. Vigil provides a compelling account of our modern first ladies, exploring how each woman has crafted her public image and used her platform to influence the country, while also serving as a paragon of fashion and American womanhood. Both women face constant scrutiny and comparison—from their degrees of political activism to their cookie recipes—and have garnered support as well as criticism. From their full lives pre-nomination to their attitudes while occupying the White House, Vigil builds careful and thoughtful portraits of Melania Trump and Michelle Obama that provide a new appreciation for how these women, and the first ladies that came before them, have shaped our country.

Description : The instant New York Times-bestselling memoir from the outspoken former governor--an "explosive" (Guardian) "must read" (Hugh Hewitt) account of Chris Christie's life in politics including his "not to miss" (Entertainment Weekly) insights into Donald Trump. After dropping out of the 2016 presidential race, Chris Christie stunned the political world by becoming the first major official to endorse Donald Trump. A friend of Trump's for fifteen years, the two-term New Jersey governor understood the future president as well as anyone in the political arena--and Christie quickly became one of Trump's most trusted advisers. Tapped with running Trump's transition team, Christie was nearly named his running mate. But within days of Trump's surprise victory over Hillary Clinton, Christie was in for his own surprise: he was being booted out. In Let Me Finish, Christie sets the record straight about his tenure as a corruption-fighting prosecutor and a Republican running a Democratic state, as well as what really happened on the 2016 campaign trail and inside Trump Tower. Christie takes readers inside the ego-driven battles for Trump's attention among figures like Steve Bannon, Corey Lewandowksi, Reince Priebus, Kellyanne Conway, Jeff Sessions, and Paul Manafort. He shows how the literal trashing of Christie's transition plan put the new administration in the hands of self-serving amateurs, all but guaranteeing the Trump presidency's shaky start. Christie also addresses hot-button issues from his own years in power, including what really went down during Bridgegate. And, for the first time, Christie tells the full story of the Kushner saga: how, as a federal prosecutor, Christie put Jared Kushner's powerful father behind bars--a fact Trump's son-in-law makes Christie pay for later. Packed with news-making revelations and told with the kind of bluntness few politicians can match, Christie's memoir is an essential guide to understanding the Trump presidency.

Description : After dozens of books and articles by anonymous sources, here, finally, is a history of the Trump White House, with the President and his staff talking openly and on the record. In President Trump, Doug Wead offers a sweeping, eloquent history of President Donald J. Trump’s first years in the White House, covering everything from election night to the biggest political obstacles of his presidency. The book will include never-before-reported stories and scoops, including how President Trump turned around the American economy, how he “never complains and never explains”, and insight into how his actions sometimes lead to misunderstandings with the media and the public. President Trump features exclusive interviews with the Trump family about the Mueller Report, and narrates their reactions when the report was finally released. Wead successfully gained interviews with the President in the Oval Office, chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, Jared and Ivanka Kushner, Donald Trump Jr, Eric and Lara Trump, and White House insiders for this illuminating history.

Description : This book of poetry that was inspired by Melania Trump covers various subjects. Some of the poems are somewhat political in nature; some poems deal with self-esteem issues and poor self-image, and, of course, love. It's a rather unusual compilation because it was written by a poet who never met Mrs. Trump, but one who has admired her from a distance. Being The First Lady of any president can be extremely difficult and emotionally taxing, especially due to the vitriolic nature of politics. I think Mrs. Trump may have fared worse than most First Ladies because she is married to Donald Trump, a man who has dramatically upset the Washington, D.C. apple cart; I think most civil people would agree that this isn't quite fair, but it is a price she has paid. My primary objective in writing this book was to alert people to their own personal vulnerabilities and to exhort people not to judge one another for any reason, especially those they disagree with. As trite as it sounds, love is the answer, and we ought to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.

Description : Four key new translations of plays (including three previously unpublished works) written at the turn of the 20th century, charting the descent of Russia into revolution Hailed by Chekhov as the voice of his time, Gorky's four plays offer a panoramic view of Russia in the throes of revolution. THE ZYKOVS is set shortly before the Bolshevik Revolution of October 1917. Antipa Zykov is a merchant adventurer. His young wife, Pavla is an unworldly convent-bred girl, too weak to realise these ideals in her stormy marriage. EGOR BULYCHOV is set on the eve of revolution as the rich businessman of the title is given power, after the Tsar's abdication. But the songs of the demonstrating crowds outside his window show that his days are numbered. Subtitled 'The Mother' and hugely controversial at the time of its first production VASSA ZHELEZNOVA, is a tragic portrait of a woman with an iron will determined to root out the corruption in her family in order to keep control of the family business. Written during his most religious phase, THE LAST ONES is about a corrupt police chief and his family who face death at the hands of revolutionaries as he tries to fight back by lynching a young man.

I can't predict where their marriage goes from here. In any individual situation, it's unwise to guess. I do know, for solid certainty, that cheating IS the kiss of death to marriage and monogamous relationships. First Lady of The United States, can you hear me? If so, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Justin Hopson. I am a seasoned private investigator and retired New Jersey State Trooper. Please know that I've been chasing cheaters for over a decade now. In fact, I've had the unenviable task of investigating more than 100 divorce cases and have testified in a fair share of court proceedings. Infidelity, unfaithfulness, and adultery are too gentle of words, too proper for what they describe. Cheating is a better choice, much more direct.

Description : Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (b. 1977) is undoubtedly one of the most widely acclaimed African writers of the twenty-first century. Best known for her insightful fiction, viral TED talks, and essays on feminism, she is also a notoriously outspoken intellectual. As she puts it in an interview with Lia Grainger, in her characteristically straightforward style: “I have things to say and I’ll say them.” Conversations with Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is the first collection of interviews with the writer. Covering fifteen years of conversations, the interviews start with the publication of Adichie’s first novel, Purple Hibiscus (2003), and end in late 2018, by which time Adichie had become one of the most prominent figures on the international literary scene. As both scholars and passionate readers of the author’s work are bound to find out, the opinions shared by Adichie in interviews over the years coalesce into a fascinating portrait that presents both abiding features and gradual transformations. Reflecting the political and emotional scope of Adichie’s work, the conversations contained in this volume cover a wide range of topics, including colonialism, race, immigration, and feminism. Collectively, these interviews testify both to the author’s ardent wish to strive for a more just and equal world, and to her deep interest in exploring our common humanity. As Adichie says in her 2009 interview with Joshua Jelly-Schapiro: “When people call me a novelist, I say, well, yes. I really think of myself as a storyteller.” This book invites Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to tell her own literary story.

Description : Maureen Dowd's incendiary takes and takedowns from 2016--the most bizarre, disruptive and divisive Presidential race in modern history. Trapped between two candidates with the highest recorded unfavorables, Americans are plunged into The Year of Voting Dangerously. In this perilous and shocking campaign season, The New York Times columnist traces the psychologies and pathologies in one of the nastiest and most significant battles of the sexes ever. Dowd has covered Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton since the '90s. She was with the real estate mogul when he shyly approached his first Presidential rope line in 1999, and she won a Pulitzer prize that same year for her penetrating columns on the Clinton impeachment follies. Like her bestsellers, Bushworld and Are Men Necessary?, The Year of Voting Dangerously will feature Dowd's trademark cocktail of wry humor and acerbic analysis in dispatches from the political madhouse. If America is on the escalator to hell, then The Year of Voting Dangerously is the perfect guide for this surreal, insane ride.
