If Nuns Ruled the World: Ten Sisters on a Mission

Author:
Genre: Nonfiction

"In an age of villainy, war and inequality, it makes sense that we need superheroes," writes Nicholas Kristof of The New York Times. "And after trying Superman, Batman and Spider-Man, we may have found the best superheroes yet: Nuns." I had to google to see if this Jo Piazza was the same Jo Piazza who co-authored The Knockoff. I was delighted to see that it is.

Fitness Junkie

I adored The Knockoff and am so excited Sykes and Piazza are teaming up again! Janey Sweet is the successful CEO of a couture wedding dress company, but when she's photographed stuffing her face on the front row of a fashion show, her business partner gives her an ultimatum: lose 30 pounds, or lose your job. The Knockoff fired shots at our collective social media obsession; Fitness Junkie tackles the wellness craze. If this new novel enjoys half the success of their first team effort, everyone will be reading this at the pool this summer. Publication date: July 11, 2017

Charlotte Walsh Likes To Win

I’m excited for this new release from one-half of the duo that wrote The Knockoff, and the solo author of the terrific nonfiction If Nuns Ruled the World. Charlotte Walsh is COO of one of the world’s fastest-growing companies, and then she decides to uproot her family from their California home to run for Senate in her home state of Pennsylvania. If she wins, she’ll be the first woman to hold that office. Her campaign quickly becomes a fight about her gender, and she’s not having it. Piazza has said she didn’t plan on writing this book, but real-life politics inspired her to write a novel about politics and media right away. The story is told through a variety of mediums—an Emily’s List endorsement, an MSNBC interview transcript, a twitter thread. Advance reviews say the ending is a doozy. I’m intrigued.

The Knockoff: A Novel

The Knockoff: A Novel

Imagine a mashup of The Devil Wears Prada and In Good Company . The story is heavily inspired by All About Eve (which you must watch immediately if you never have): when 42-year-old Glossy magazine editor Imogen Tate returns from a 6-month sabbatical, she finds that her fill-in, a twenty-something Harvard Business School grad, is actively trying to usurp her position—permanently. (And worse—turn the magazine into an app!) Not great literature, but tons of fun.
