The Family Hightower
The novel takes a look at capitalism and organized crime in the 20th century, the legend of the self-made man, and what money can do to people. Like Jeffrey Eugenides' Middlesex, The Family Hightower stretches across both generations and continents, bearing the weight of family secrets and the inevitable personal toll they take on loved ones despite our best intentions.

Closing General Session featuring B.J. Novak Author Event, Other, Speaker series Las Vegas Convention Center
N249
Description :

Don't miss the chance to be entertained and energized by what B. J. Novak has to say about the power of words and a new accomplishment as he adds book author to an already impressive résumé. He has long been well known as a stand-up comedian, writer, TV and film star (especially as Ryan on NBC's Emmy Award-winning "The Office" and in films including Inglourious Basterds and Saving Mr. Banks), executive producer, and Screen Actors Guild and Writers' Guild of America award winner. Library users of all ages are likely to seek out his books-in 2014, he's already published One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories for adults (February 2014, Knopf), to be followed by his first children's book, The Book with No Pictures (September 2014, Dial Books for Young Readers).

"I wanted to write a book that would introduce the youngest of kids to the idea that words can be their allies-that the right words can be as fun, exciting, and ridiculous as any pictures," he says about The Book with No Pictures, which turns the notion of the picture book on its head by delivering a text-only story book for young children. "Also, I can't draw."

One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories became an immediate New York Times bestseller and has been widely praised. Booklist called it "high-concept, hilarious, and disarmingly commiserative . . . clever and fresh, at best spectacularly perceptive, and always commanding."
