NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Citing \"momentous changes\" in her life, like her father being elected president, Ivanka Trump and her publisher are pushing back the release of her book \"Women Who Work\" from early March to early May.

Portfolio, an imprint of Penguin Publishing Group, has now scheduled a May 2 sale date. Trump began the project when Donald Trump was a still a long-shot candidate for the White House and she completed it before his stunning victory in November. The May publication will include a preface she wrote after the election.

Trump's husband, Jared Kushner, is expected to be a top adviser in the new administration and the family is in the process of moving from New York to Washington. In a statement issued to The Associated Press on Tuesday, Portfolio said the later release would help \"accommodate these momentous changes in Ivanka's life and give her time to settle her children into their new home, schools and city.\"

According to the publisher, the book reflects Ivanka Trump's \"continuing commitment to inspire and empower women to define success on their own terms and to create the lives they want to live.\" She is donating any net proceeds, including her advance, to charity.

Trump is the author of \"The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life,\" published in 2009.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 A hip-hop podcast host has been arrested in connection with a shooting at a popular New York City concert venue last year that left a rapper's bodyguard dead and two people wounded.

Thirty-one-year-old Daryl Campbell, also known as Taxstone, was charged Monday on a federal weapons possession charge tied to the May 2016 shooting at Irving Plaza in Manhattan just before the rapper T.I. was to perform.

A federal complaint states that DNA supposedly belonging to Campbell was found on the trigger, hand grip and magazine of a 9 mm semi-automatic handgun used in the shooting.

Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave, also known as Roland Collins, was wounded, along with a friend. Collins' bodyguard was fatally shot.

Campbell, host of the popular podcast Tax Season, was said to be feuding with Collins at the time.

Phone and email messages left for an attorney believed to be representing Campbell were not immediately returned early Tuesday.

\"Homesick for Another World\" (Penguin Press), by Ottessa Moshfegh

Ottessa Moshfegh's story collection, \"Homesick for Another World,\" couldn't come at a better time.

Notions of class and power are in an unpredictable flux. A new elite rises, flipping the deck into the air. Nobody knows where the cards will land.

So here comes Moshfegh, whose imaginative writing about train-wreck characters, rich and poor, adheres to a relentlessly dim worldview where a divided America comes together in the muck. You'd better not be hoping for the best for these folks because you'll be disappointed.

In these stories, Moshfegh's most educated characters long to merge with a world of baseness and vulgarity. It's not because they're searching for \"shabby chic\" furnishings for their psyches; they want to make a sacrament of renouncing their elitism.

In \"Slumming,\" a divorced high school teacher spends her summers in a poverty-stricken town where she can buy drugs from a dealer in a bus depot \"as if I were some pilgrim approaching a saint.\" In \"Dancing in the Moonlight,\" Nick, a 33-year-old, Yale-educated Brooklyn resident, risks everything to win over a bleached blonde who once looked at him with revulsion. \"I had to marry her,\" Nick thinks. \"If I couldn't, I would kill myself.\"

The characters are echoes of the Harvard grad, Rebecca, in Moshfegh's 2015 novel \"Eileen,\" who also crosses class barriers following her compulsion to fuse with the dark and defective.

In an interview with Vice \u2014 where Moshfegh has published some of these stories (along with The Paris Review) \u2014 the author said her writing \"lets people scrape up against their own depravity.\" Moshfegh's downwardly mobile men scratch at pimples and scabs with clammy hands. Her women have yellow teeth, chipped nails and swollen body parts.

These externalities mirror their barely hidden fetishes, eating disorders and addictions. They work at jobs they hate, fall in love with people they find disgusting and explode with joy over doomed schemes for getting ahead.

The worst stories feel exploitative of these imagined lives. Turning the page can be like looking under a rock, or peeling off a bandage, to see what's underneath. The reader squirms, and then moves on.

The best stories in the collection, however, contain memorable, conflicting images of squalor and beauty, chaos and pattern. In \"Nothing Ever Happens Here,\" an aspiring actor from a small town is offered a life-changing inspiration from his Los Angeles landlady. She tries to teach him how to stand out from the Hollywood pack. \"Point out the hidden pattern. Find meaning in the mess,\" she tells him. \"People will kiss your feet.\"

Feet kissing, or the desire to have one's feet kissed, is what's turning the gears in Moshfegh's worlds. If the metaphorical feet stink, that's disconcerting perhaps. But feet can stink, so it shouldn't be too surprising.

CHICAGO (AP) \u2014 Where the desks of Chicago police detectives once stood in a West Side police district is now classrooms for theater-art courses. And the old firing range in the basement is now a storage space for costumes.

It's the former 12th District Police Station, which has been transformed into the new, $8.5 million home of the Chicago Children's Theatre. A ribbon-cutting ceremony is planned Tuesday.

Phase One of the project resulted in the new 149-seat Pritzker Family Studio Theatre. Phase Two will finish in 2021 and include a second, 299-seat theater.

Artistic director Jacqueline Russell says the Children's Theatre's first-ever permanent home \"is a reason for all of Chicago to celebrate.\" She says it creates a centrally located theatre for the city's children, \"regardless of their circumstances or ability to pay.\"

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) \u2014 \"Money Don't Matter 2 Night,\" Prince once sang. But his money matters a lot to the IRS, and the case provides a cautionary tale not just for the wealthy, but not-so-rich Americans as well.

Prince's estate has until Saturday to file an estate tax payment for the late rock superstar, and the taxes are expected to ultimately swallow nearly half the estate's estimated $200 million value, meaning a likely windfall of roughly $100 million for the government. Estate law experts say Prince could have prevented that. Here are the issues:

___

WHY THERE'S SO MUCH MONEY

Prince left no known will when he died in April of an accidental painkiller overdose, and apparently did nothing to shelter his assets from the taxman. So, federal and state taxes will claim roughly half of it, said Mark Bakko, leader of the tax practice in the Minneapolis office of the accounting firm Baker Tilly, which is not involved in the case.

The value of Prince's estate when he died is subject to a federal tax of 40 percent and Minnesota's tax of 16 percent. With exclusions and deductions, the total bite will be closer to 50 percent. The estate can seek an extension for filing the return but can't delay the first payment.

___

DAMAGE COULD HAVE BEEN LIMITED

Experts say Prince could have set up an estate plan with trusts to benefit any relatives and charities he chose \u2014 while leaving little if anything to be taxed.

\"The reality is there are only three options,\" said Robert Strauss of the Los Angeles estate law firm Weinstock Manion, which isn't involved either. \"There's family and friends, there's charity, and there's Uncle Sam. And most clients would rather that Uncle Sam got less.\"

Instead, Prince's six siblings are expected to equally split what's left.

Estates worth under $5.45 million for individuals and $10.9 million for couples aren't subject to federal estate taxes. But David Herzig, a tax law professor at Valparaiso University, said the case is a reminder that there are good reasons to have a will and estate plan, even if taxes aren't an issue, because they can set up trusts that keep assets private and out of the probate process.

\"(People) think they have to be as rich as Prince before they need estate plans,\" said Jeffrey Scott, a St. Paul estate attorney. \"If your net worth is a couple hundred thousand dollars, you need some kind of estate plan.\"

___

COMING UP WITH THE CASH

The estate doesn't have to pay the entire bill by Saturday. Big estates can make payments over time.

That helps because Prince wasn't very liquid. A recent inventory listed about $110,000 in cash, about $830,000 in gold bars but no stocks or bonds. It also listed real estate worth about $25.4 million. That inventory doesn't include his entertainment assets, which are still being valued.

___

LESSONS FROM MICHAEL JACKSON

It's not clear whether the IRS and Prince's estate will agree on the value of his music catalog because it's difficult to put a dollar value on such assets.

The experience of Michael Jackson's estate suggests a long slog in court if they can't agree. Jackson died in 2009. The tax case finally goes to trial in Los Angeles next month over more than $700 million in taxes, interest and penalties.

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico (AP) \u2014 Gunfire broke out in a crowded beachfront nightclub throbbing with electronic music before dawn Monday, causing five deaths and setting off a bloody stampede by screaming concertgoers at an international festival in this Caribbean resort.

At least one person died in the crush to escape and some of the 15 people wounded or injured were hurt in the rush out, authorities said.

Quintana Roo state Attorney General Miguel Angel Pech ruled out any terror attack, and the state's governor said it involved a personal dispute. Pech said the shooting erupted when security personnel tried to stop a man from entering the Blue Parrot club with a gun.

Three of those killed were part of the security detail at the 10-day BPM electronic music festival, Pech said. The gunman apparently fled.

\"I was thinking it was the same thing that happened in Paris, some guy just walking in and shooting people at a restaurant, bang bang bang, a terrorist attack,\" said New Zealand tourist Tyler Klee, who was outside the club when shots rang out.

\"Everyone ran, everyone was terrified, looking for their friends ... We were running away and then you hear more shots fired, like you don't know if you're going to be shot in the back or not.\"

His friend Ben Forbes, from Australia, said: \"It happened pretty quickly as well ... You still didn't know where they were, how many there were.\"

Officials released a list of the dead, who included one Canadian, one American, two Mexicans and one Italian.

Canada's Global Affairs Department identified its dead citizen as Kirk J. Wilson of Toronto.

Neil Forester, a friend, said Wilson was a longtime bouncer and was working security at the festival to lend a hand to its Canadian organizers. \"He was just a genuine, one-of-a-kind guy,\" Forester said. He said Wilson was 49 and was married with two children.

The U.S. Embassy confirmed that one of those killed was a U.S. citizen, and the Quintana Roo state prosecutor's office identified her as Alejandra Villanueva Ibarra. The office said she died in the crush to escape the shooting.

Italy's Foreign Ministry confirmed one of its citizens died, and the prosecutor's office identified him as Daniel Pessina and said he was part of the BPM staff.

The Mexican victims were identified as Rafael Penaloza Vega and Geovanni Ruiz Murillo. The prosecutor's office said Ruiz Murillo was wearing a BPM shirt.

Pech, the state attorney general, said a Mexican woman was seriously injured. He said eight of the injured were treated at hospitals for lesser injuries and released.

The shooting occurred near the largest exit, setting off chaos as concert goers had to scramble over a metal fence to escape to the beach.

Jeffrey Castelein, 33, a fork lift operator from Belgium, said he heard 15 to 20 shots before he and his friends leapt the fence. \"At first we didn't realize, and then everybody fell down and you had to hide a little bit. And then we went out the back by the sea.\"

Pech said the shooter apparently tried to enter the nightclub about 2:30 a.m., but was denied access because he had a gun. He then began to exchange fire with another person, and festival security personnel who tried to stop the shooting came under fire, Pech said. He said 20 bullet casings apparently from three different pistols were found at the scene, but it was unclear if the security detail was armed or fired any of the weapons.

Pech said three people were detained nearby. It was not known if they had been involved in the shooting.

\"We know of another shooting incident that occurred near the nightclub, but we are investigating whether that is related\" to the deadly shooting, Pech said.

Quintana Roo Gov. Carlos Joaquin attributed the shooting to \"the intolerance and conflict of interests between two people,\" and also referred to it as \"a personal conflict\" between two people who exchanged gunfire. But he did not specify what the conflict was.

Playa del Carmen has largely been spared the violence that has hit other parts of Mexico.

The state tourism department said the shooting was an \"isolated act of violence\" and stressed that \"the situation in Playa del Carmen is under control and Mexican and foreign tourists can feel protected and safe.\"
