George Saunders meets Broad City in Simon Rich's surreal skewering of NYC millennials. That the former Saturday Night Live writer's short story collection would be hilarious is a no-brainer. But the stories of Spoiled Brats also happen to be genuinely profound, moving, and even sometimes haunting—leaving lasting images and inspiring the reader to think deeply in between fits of laughter. Stand outs include a hamster's harrowing tale in an elementary school classroom and a 20th Century immigrant who is transplanted to modern-day Brooklyn.

Have you been in a funk since November? Can't look at the news without having a full-on panic attack? Well, this The Revolution Where You Live might not soothe all your nerves but it will provide for some much-needed optimism. Journalist Sarah van Gelder transversed the country in her pickup truck, allowing us to reap the fruit of her labor—conversations with activists, leaders, creatives and all-around outside-the-box thinkers on how they're working hard to change their communities for the better. From ranchers in Montana to urban farmers in Chicago, from artists in Appalachia to the new activist mayor of Newark, van Gelder's many inspiring profiles show how a revolution where one lives can, in fact, change the world.
