BRAIN ON FIRE: November 13, 2012

Free Press is offering Brain On Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan for our next blog tour!

One day, Susannah Cahalan woke up in a strange hospital room, strapped to her bed, under guard, and unable to move or speak. Her medical records—from a month-long hospital stay of which she had no memory—showed psychosis, violence, and dangerous instability. Yet, only weeks earlier she had been a healthy, ambitious twenty-four year old, six months into her first serious relationship and a sparkling career as a cub reporter.

Susannah’s astonishing memoir chronicles the swift path of her illness and the lucky, last-minute intervention led by one of the few doctors capable of saving her life. With sharp reporting drawn from hospital records, scientific research, and interviews with doctors and family, Brain on Fire is a crackling mystery and an unflinching, gripping personal story that marks the debut of an extraordinary writer.

If you would like to participate, please email for a review copy of Brain on Fire. We ask that you post your review on November 13th and not earlier. U.S. and Canada only.

MARMEE & LOUISA: November 6, 2012

For our next blog tour, Free Press is offering Marmee & Louisa: The Untold Story of Louisa May Alcott and Her Mother by Eve LaPlante.

Since its release nearly 150 years ago, Louisa May Alcott’s classic Little Women has been a mainstay in American literature, while passionate Jo March and her calm, beloved “Marmee” have shaped generations of young women. Biographers have consistently credited her father, Bronson Alcott, for Louisa’s professional success, assuming that this outspoken idealist was the source of her progressive thinking and remarkable independence.

A story guaranteed to turn all previous scholarship on its head, Marmee & Louisa is a gorgeously written and deeply felt biography of two extraordinary women and a key to our understanding of Louisa May Alcott’s life and work.


If you would like to participate, please email for a review copy of Marmee & Louisa. We ask that you post your review on November 6th and not earlier. U.S. and Canada only.
