NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE A.V. CLUB • Includes new interviews! From the writer and director of Knocked Up and the producer of Freaks and Geeks comes a collection of intimate, hilarious conversations with the biggest names in comedy from the past thirty years—including Mel Brooks, Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Stewart, Sarah Silverman, Harold Ramis, Seth Rogen, Chris Rock, and Lena Dunham. Before becoming one of the most successful filmmakers in Hollywood, Judd Apatow was the original comedy nerd. At fifteen, he took a job washing dishes in a local comedy club—just so he could watch endless stand-up for free. At sixteen, he was hosting a show for his local high school radio station in Syosset, Long Island—a show that consisted of Q&As with his comedy heroes, from Garry Shandling to Jerry Seinfeld. They talked about their careers, the science of a good joke, and their dreams of future glory (turns out, Shandling was interested in having his own TV show one day and Steve Allen had already invented everything). Thirty years later, Apatow is still that same comedy nerd—and he’s still interviewing funny people about why they do what they do. Sick in the Head gathers Apatow’s most memorable and revealing conversations into one hilarious, wide-ranging, and incredibly candid collection that spans not only his career but his entire adult life. Here are the comedy legends who inspired and shaped him, from Mel Brooks to Steve Martin. Here are the contemporaries he grew up with in Hollywood, from Spike Jonze to Sarah Silverman. And here, finally, are the brightest stars in comedy today, many of whom Apatow has been fortunate to work with, from Seth Rogen to Amy Schumer. And along the way, something kind of magical happens: What started as a lifetime’s worth of conversations about comedy becomes something else entirely. It becomes an exploration of creativity, ambition, neediness, generosity, spirituality, and the joy that

Marilyn Briggs is no ordinary investigator. A member of the Sex Detectives, a covert government unit, Marilyn tackles New York's more unusual sexual predators—vagina-faced assassins, nympho ninjas, that kind of thing. On her latest assignment, she encounters undead porn stars, stomach-bursting parasites and a horny marshmallow man ... then there's the fifty-foot penis monster about to destroy the city... Sick In The Head is a love story ... in the tradition of Frank Henenlotter.
Film producer Larry can't catch a break. The glory days of his career are long gone and he is now a bitter and tired man. The already problematic filming of his latest vampire film takes a turn for the worse when a real vampire and her deranged goons show up. Larry and his nephew Willy try to get to source of the problem, while evil hunchbacks, unkillable psychopaths and a army of zombies try to do them in. SICK IN THE HEAD is an absurd and twisted tribute to horrorfilms of yesteryear with a unhealthy dose of morbid jokes and unreal surrealism that will leave a permanent mark on your mind. Or two marks on your neck.

She had never been more beautiful to him than when she was making him hurt. Corinne was young once. Reese wasn’t her first lover, but he was the first to submit to her. For a while they had something special, but it ended badly. She’s a little older now — and the wealthy businessman who just bought the company she works for bears little resemblance to that boy. He’s commanding, domineering, and seems hell-bent on pushing her past her limits. In a flash of anger, she falls back into their old pattern—and Reese falls right in with her. Before she knows it, she’s testing him. Then tasting him. Corrine knows she can’t afford to get involved again. Her life is complicated enough without throwing in a slew of kink. Now if only Reese would stop making her feel like the goddess she used to be…and showing her who’s been the boss all along. But if he wants her, he’s going to have to beg for it.
For anyone whose personal life or career has been disrupted by health anxiety this compassionate, nonjudgmental, and practical book--written by two psychologists--may be just what the doctor ordered.
Time Out of Mind is one of the most ambitious, complex, and provocative albums of Bob Dylan’s distinguished artistic career. The present book interprets the songs recorded for Time Out of Mind as a series of dreams by a single singer/dreamer. These dreams overlap and intermingle, but three primary levels of meaning emerge. On one level, the singer/dreamer envisions himself as a killer awaiting execution for killing his lover. On another level, the song-cycle functions as religious allegory, dramatizing the protagonist’s relentless struggles with his lover as a battle between spirit and flesh, earth and heaven, salvation and damnation. On still another level, Time Out of Mind is a meditation on American slavery and racism, Dylan’s most personal encounter with the subject, but one tangled up in associations with the minstrelsy tradition and debates surrounding cultural appropriation. Time Out of Mind marks the culmination of several recurring themes that have preoccupied Dylan for decades, and it serves as a pivotal turning point toward his late renaissance in terms of both subject matter and intertextual approach.
Imagine finding out, during the delivery of your own child, that the world in which you live is not the world that you had thought that it was your entire life. Eric Dunn is a simple man with very little wants who is thrust into a whirlwind chase across the country trying to save himself, his wife, and his newborn son from a life of slavery. Holly Cranfield is the wife of a Homeland Security agent, and mother of a severely disabled boy who risks everything to set herself and her son free from the bondage that they live in. Follow them as they run and try to outwit the law. They are both helped by a secret organization set up to fight the slavery imposed by a powerful, unknown group called The Insiders.

Steve Huntington had a way of offering jobs that were too good to be true. Mark Huntington made offers too good to turn down. Sedona had a habit of being caught in the middle; somewhere in the proximity of bad guys with guns and family members she was trying to avoid. Good thing the latest case involved a hospital. Then again, not all hospital personnel were interested in the lasting health of the patients…or that of their co-workers. Executive Sick Days is book three in the Sedona O'Hala series. Book one is: Executive Lunch. Book two is: Executive Retention. Executive Affairs is book 3.5
