    Rachel to the Rescue

    deElinor Lipman

    Rachel Klein is sacked from her job at the White House after she sends an email criticizing Donald Trump. As she is escorted off the premises she is hit by a speeding car, driven by what the press will discreetly call "a personal friend of the President." Does that explain the flowers, the get-well wishes at a press briefing, the hush money offered by a lawyer at her hospital bedside? Rachel’s recovery is soothed by comically doting parents, matchmaking room-mates, a new job as aide to a journalist whose books aim to defame the President, and unexpected love at the local wine store. But secrets leak, and Rachel’s new-found happiness has to make room for more than a little chaos. Will she bring down the President? Or will he manage to do that all by himself? Rachel to the Rescue is a mischievous political satire, with a delightful cast of characters, from one of America’s funniest novelists.

    She Memes Well: Essays

    deQuinta Brunson

    “In She Memes Well, Quinta gives more than a peek behind the curtain. She invites us in, lets us poke around and offers a balm for our aching souls. She moves beyond the jokes into something much deeper, something we may not recognize we need. She is the friend, sister, lover, cool co-worker we all wished we had.” —Gabrielle Union, actress and New York Times bestselling author of We’re Going to Need More Wine  From comedian Quinta Brunson comes a deeply personal and funny collection of essays about trying to make it when you're struggling, the importance of staying true to your roots, and how she's redefined humor online.  Quinta Brunson is a master at breaking the internet. Before having any traditional background in media, her humorous videos were the first to go viral on Instagram’s platform. From there, Brunson’s wryly observant POV helped cement her status in the comedy world at large, with roles on HBO, Netflix, ABC, Adult Swim, BuzzFeed, the CW, and Comedy Central. Now, Brunson is bringing her comedic chops to the page in She Memes Well, an earnest, laugh-out-loud collection about this unusual road to notoriety. In her debut essay collection, Quinta applies her trademark humor and heart to discuss what it was like to go from a girl who loved the World Wide Web to a girl whose face launched a thousand memes. With anecdotes that range from the ridiculous—like the time she decided to go clubbing wearing an outfit she describes as "Gary Coleman meets metrosexual pirate"—to more heartfelt material about her struggles with depression, Quinta's voice is entirely authentic and eminently readable. With its intimate tone and hilarious moments, She Memes Well will make you feel as if you're sitting down with your chillest, funniest friend.

    Black Buck

    deMateo Askaripour

    Written by Scribd Editors Black Buck, author Mateo Askaripour’s darkly funny satire, tells the story of unambitious twenty-two -year-old Darren, who is content to live with his mom in a Bed-Sty brownstone and work as a Starbucks barista in a New York office building, despite his high marks as the valedictorian of his high school. That all changes when he joins an elite sales team at a start-up tech company, where his position as the only Black employee gives him a new purpose in life. Darren reimagines himself as “Buck,” a ruthless salesman his friends and family don’t recognize. But a tragic turn of events at home makes Buck feel like he’s at his lowest point. In response he begins developing a plan to help young people of color infiltrate America’s sales force. Askaripour’s work aims to empower people of color to seize opportunities for advancement. He was a 2018 Rhode Island Writers Colony writer-in-residence, and his debut novel Black Buck was an instant New York Times bestseller. Black Buck is a razor-sharp skewering of America’s workforce, a sizzling debut work that explores race and ambition and sets the stage for a new vision of the American dream.
