On January 12, 2010, the deadliest earthquake in the history of the Western Hemisphere struck the nation least prepared to handle one. Jonathan M. Katz, the only full-time American news correspondent in Haiti, was inside his house when it buckled along with hundreds of thousands of others. In this visceral first-hand account, Katz takes readers inside the terror of that day, the devastation visited on ordinary Haitians, and through the monumental--yet misbegotten--rescue effort that followed.
Home Fires is the powerful saga of the Gordon family - real people, names unchanged. Spanning nearly five decades, from the end of World War II to the early 1990s, their story has the scope, depth, wealth of incident, and emotional intensity of a great novel, and an abundance of humor, scandal, warmth, and trauma - the recognizable components of family life. This is also a masterful chronicle of the turbulent postwar era, illuminating the interplay between private life and profound cultural changes.
"The Way We Were"
Based on Comedy Central's hit phenomenon "Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist," Dr. Katz's Therapy Sessions lets us listen in on the hilarious sessions between the wry, downtrodden Dr. Katz (comedian/actor Jonathan Katz) and his roster of patients, whose voices are provided by such popular comedians as Gary Shandling, Steven Wright, Rita Rudner, Anthony Clark, Janeane Garofalo, Carol Leifer, and more. Therapy has never been this funny!

When Ban Ki-moon was a child, the United Nations saved his village from a war. Can he save the U.N. from irrelevance?
Jonathan Katz is neither a doctor nor a cartoon. But he has been known to be one entertaining funnyman. His old show on Comedy Central, Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, was perhaps best known for two elements during its six-year run: its squiggly animation and the remarkable list of guests who sat on Dr. Katz's couch, including Ray Romano, Conan O'Brien, Jon Stewart and Louis C.K. Now Katz is back with a new animated show, Explosion Bus.
