“A great futuristic coming of age novel. A must-read!"

RICHARD ZEYEN | Professor Emeritus, Plant Pathology, University of Minnesota

“Compelling, funny, psychologically rich and profoundly important!”

SUZANNE BRAUN LEVINE | former editor of Ms. Magazine, author of Inventing the Rest of Our Lives

“An exciting novel that will help people choose a better future, THE COMMONS is filled with well-researched details and provides important warnings about unrestrained privatization of our plant genetic resources and artistic heritage. It should be read by everyone who cares about future generations.”

DR. DAG ENDRESEN | Global Biodiversity Information

Fresh from the success of her New York Times Best Seller, THE NAZI OFFICER'S WIFE, a true story of love and terror in the Third Reich, Susan Dworkin has penned a thrilling new novel — THE COMMONS — about a future society facing a catastrophic threat to the food supply.

It is the year 2165. Climate change has impoverished the world. One giant corporation governs North America and controls the food supply. When a fierce wheat plague threatens everyone with starvation, an alliance of plant scientists, robot spies, and fed-up farmers organize to fight it. And at their center is a young pop singer named Lizzie who becomes the voice of the revolution.



FOR THE 17th WEEK, THE NAZI OFFICER’S WIFE LANDS ON NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLERS LISTS


“One of the best Holocaust memoirs"
LIBRARY JOURNAL

“A remarkable story”
JERUSALEM POST

Edith Hahn Beer, a Jewish woman who assumed an Aryan identity and married a Nazi officer who maintained her disguise, teamed up with Susan Dworkin to tell her amazing story. Beer passed away in 2009.

Now, almost 15 years since this tale of love and terror in the Third Reich was first published, The New York Times places the memoir on the E-Book and the Combined Print & E-Book Nonfiction Best Sellers lists.

The memoir has ranked Number 1 in multiple categories on Amazon, including History, History of Religion, History of Judaism, Women and the Holocaust. And it has spent more than 3 months on Amazon’s list of the top 100 Best Sellers in Kindle eBooks.
