Author of the New York Times bestseller White Girl Problems and Psychos, Babe Walker, faces her most daunting challenge yet—suburbia—in the third caustically witty White Girl Problems book. Babe Walker thought she had done it all. After all, she’s survived the highly exclusive social hierarchies of Bel Air, traipsed around Europe in true white-girl fashion, and left her mark on several of the best rehab facilities in the United States. But now Babe is about to enter a terrifying new world: Middle America. After a freak accident that was definitely not Babe’s fault, her estranged mother offers her the perfect escape from LA: an invite to her grandfather’s eightieth birthday party in Maryland, of all places. Babe’s journey throws her headlong into elementary school classrooms full of small, unfashionable people and pizza buffet restaurants that will haunt her nightmares and eventually back to Los Angeles, thank goodness. Tossed together with her cousins—basic preteen Cara and mature and preternaturally stylish Knox—Babe learns that connecting with someone on an intimate, familial level might be the most rewarding experience there is… Besides being thin, of course. Hysterical, unapologetic, and as unfiltered as ever, Babe Walker proves again to be the “urban socialite you love to hate” (Time), and she can only hope the population is ready for American Babe.

"Much has been written about Ruth, but as someone who teaches sports marketing, I really appreciate the angle taken by Barthel, who reveals how the most marketable athlete of his day parlayed great celebrity into business opportunities. This book has much to offer baseball fans and marketing scholars alike."—John Fortunato, author of Sports Sponsorship: Principles and Practices and Commissioner: The Legacy of Pete Rozelle. From his first year in the majors, George Herman "Babe" Ruth knew he could profit from celebrity. Babe Ruth Cigars in 1915 marked his first attempt to cash in. Traded to the Yankees in 1920, he soon signed with Christy Walsh, baseball's first publicity agent. Walsh realized that stories of great deeds in sports were a commodity, and in 1921 sold Ruth's ghostwritten byline to a newspaper syndicate for $15,000 ($187,000 today). Ruth hit home runs while Walsh's writers made him a hero, crafting his public image as a lovable scalawag. Were the stories true? It didn't matter--they sold. Many survive but have never been scrutinized until now. Drawing on primary sources, this book examines the stories, separating exaggerated facts from clear falsehoods. This book traces Ruth's ascendance as the first great media-created superstar and celebrity product endorser.

Babe Walker, center of the universe, is a painstakingly manicured white girl with an expensive smoothie habit, a proclivity for Louboutins, a mysterious mother she's never met, and approximately 50 bajillion Twitter followers. But her "problems" have landed her in shopping rehab-that's what happens when you spend $246,893.50 in one afternoon at Barneys. Now she's decided to write her memoir, revealing the gut-wrenching hurdles she's had to overcome in order to be perfect in every way, every day. Hurdles such as: I hate my horse. Every job I've ever had is the worst job I've ever had. He's not a doctor, a lawyer, or a prince. I'll eat anything, as long as it's gluten-free, dairy-free, low-carb, low-fat, low-calorie, sugar-free, and organic. In an Adderall-induced flash of inspiration, Babe Walker has managed to create one of the most enjoyable, unforgettable memoirs in years.
On a cold mid-November night in southern Florida, two horses are born at the same time, but they have different destinies. One horse is jet black, strong, and virile; named Black Prince, he grows to be the pride of Farm Jadeville. The other horse born that night is weak, scraggly, and odd-looking. The breeder orders that the foal be thrown into the creek behind the barn, where the alligators can have a feast. Mannie, the son of a worker on the farm, and Jade Aliva, the granddaughter of the farm's owner, rescue the odd, puny horse. They and their friends care for it, train it, and name it Babe Loop. The horse thrives under the children's care, and one day it surprises everyone by breaking into a run when the United States national anthem is played. Keeping this unusual talent a secret, the children and trainer John C. Goodeeds prepare Babe Loop to enter the prestigious National Classic of the Roses, a race which carries a purse of $75,000. Does Babe Loop, the misfit horse, have the tenacity and talent to overcome the popular Black Prince?
