Calcaterra, Regina

ETCHED IN SAND: A True Story of Five Siblings who Survived an Unspeakable Childhood on Long Island

Beautifully written and deeply moving, activist Regina Calcaterra recounts her childhood in foster care and on the streets, and how she and her four homeless siblings managed to survive years of abuse, torment and neglect, caring for one another while living in a series of foster homes and intermittent homelessness—all in the shadows between Manhattan and the Hamptons. At age fourteen, Regina’s journey changed dramatically when she chose to become legally emancipated, allowing her to escape from her mentally unbalanced mother and achieve independence. Possessed by the desire to improve her life and succeed, she put herself through college and law school, and rose to become a partner in a high-powered law firm. Like THE GLASS CASTLE, this is a haunting memoir and a powerfully emotional tale. Readers will become engrossed in Regina’s painful childhood, applaud her bravery in protecting her younger siblings, and share in her later joy and success as she manages to rise above her past. Today, Regina is a lawyer, state official and activist, who serves as Chief Deputy County Executive in Suffolk County, New York. William Morrow Paperbacks

CODE NAME: JOHNNY WALKER: The Extraordinary Story of the Iraqi Who Risked Everything to Fight with the U.S. Navy SEALs

Before his tragic death in February of 2013, Navy SEAL Chief Chris Kyle reached out to HarperCollins about the unique and incredibly powerful story of “Johnny Walker,” an Iraqi-born translator who, at great risk to himself and his family, fought alongside American forces in the Iraq War. Working closely with the SEALS as well as other military outfits, Johnny’s skill and unwavering dedication allowed for the completion of many successful operations, and safeguarded the lives of troops. He now lives with his wife and children in San Diego, where he continues to aid the United States by training new SEALS. An astonishing and inspiring tale of combat, family, and triumph, Johnny’s life is that of a true hero. “Johnny was one of our interpreters overseas. He is responsible for saving many American lives, especially SEALs. Due to his bravery and constant vigilance, the SEALs fought to bring him and his family to America. Jonny is still heavily involved in the fight training our guys, and trying to give them the upper hand to confront our enemy. He has an amazing story that I feel needs to be told, and would touch the hearts of all Americans. ... I cannot express how many lives have been touched by Johnny, and how many of us owe him our lives.” --Chris Kyle, in June, 2012. William Morrow

Love, Courtney

UNTITLED MEMOIR

For the first time, the provocative and controversial rock icon Courtney Love offers a no-holds-barred look at the shocking and chaotic story of her life. Written with New York Times bestselling writer Anthony Bozza and featuring exclusive photos from throughout her life, this book goes behind the scenes with one of this generation’s most polarizing pop culture figures, sparing no one and holding nothing back. A lot has been said about Courtney Love since she first kicked, screamed, and stormed her way onto the alternative music scene over twenty years ago. In that time, she’s been criticized and vilified about as often as she’s been embraced and idolized, with her talent as a musician matched only by her talent for pissing people off. Yet through it all, her story has been told by rock journalists and tabloids. Now she’s ready to tell it all, herself, from her rocky relationship with her hippy parents to her time stripping to make ends meet to the truth behind her much-publicized drug abuse and recovery. Whether it’s grunge, punk, or the red carpet, her story follows the ever-evolving world of rock music in the ‘80s and ‘90s, as time after time she ends up on the cusp of alternative just as it’s about to go mainstream. Nothing is off limits, including her relationships with celebrities like Billy Corgan, Trent Reznor, and Ed Norton as well as her heavily-scrutinized marriage to Kurt Cobain. But more than just a tale of rock excess and tumultuous relationships, this book provides a window into modern rock music unlike any other, capturing how year after year Courtney has traveled from the fringe of pop culture to the flaming center and back again. Along the way, she has reinvented herself countless times, always managing to stay relevant without losing her edge and becoming a permanent pop culture fascination in a world of 15-minute celebrities. In the end, her tale is the stuff of music legend--as exaggerated as it is true--making this one of the most highly-anticipated rock memoirs of all time. Courtney Love is a multi-platinum selling rock musician and Golden Globe-nominated actress. The founding member of the alternative rock band Hole, Love has been called “the most controversial woman in the history of rock” by Rolling Stone for her wild, rebellious persona and her music’s unapologetic attitude. A staple in the alternative music scene for over twenty years, she now lives in New York City. William Morrow
