Last Night in Paradise by Katie Roiphe

Book Description

"A brilliant and contrarian voice, à la Mary McCarthy."--Kirkus Reviews Writing with the unerring reportorial instinct she brought to her widely discussed The Morning After, one of our most outspoken cultural commentators chronicles our uneasy passage from the sexual revolution to the new Puritanism in a book that is one part history, one part prophecy, and all provocation. KATIE ROIPHE depicts the inner landscape of a generation that practices condom etiquette yet fears that even the safest sex may not be safe enough. She shows how educators and ideologues have co-opted the fear of AIDS to promote their own moral agenda. Roiphe also writes about her sister Emily, who is herself HIV-positive, with a candor that makes Last Night in Paradise as much a personal document as it is a barometric reading of our sexual climate. Gripping, incisive, and at times incendiary, the result is a work of reportage in the tradition of Joan Didion's Slouching Toward Bethlehem--a portrait of an era that will be read and debated long after that era has passed."Resonant . . . I look forward to hearing from Ms. Roiphe again." --Jennifer Grossman, Wall Street Journal

Violet Hour by Katie Roiphe Violet Hour, Hardback (May 2016)

From one of our most perceptive and provocative voices comes a deeply researched account of the last days of Susan Sontag, Sigmund Freud, John Updike, Dylan Thomas, Maurice Sendak and James Salter - an arresting and wholly original meditation on mortality.

In Praise of Messy Lives by Katie Roiphe In Praise of Messy Lives, Paperback (June 2013)

'Is there some adventure out there that we are not having, some vividness, some wild pleasure, that we are not experiencing in our responsible, productive days?... We are bequeathed on earth one very short life, and it might be good, one of these days, to make sure that we are living it.'
