Book Excerpt :

Welcome to sunny suburban 1960s Southern California. George is a gay middle-aged English professor, adjusting to solitude after the tragic death of his young partner. He is determined to persist in the routines of his former life. A Single Man follows him over the course of an ordinary twenty-four hours. Behind his British reserve, tides of grief, rage, and loneliness surge—but what is revealed is a man who loves being alive despite all the everyday injustices. When Christopher Isherwood's A Single Man first appeared, it shocked many with its frank, sympathetic, and moving portrayal of a gay man in maturity. Isherwood's favorite of his own novels, it now stands as a classic lyric meditation on life as an outsider.

Book Short Summary:

"A buoyant tale about the path to acceptance and joy--beginning, like all journeys, with one brave step."--People "The best-selling novelist has done a masterful job of depicting the circumstances of a generation of women we seldom think about: the mothers, sisters, wives and fiances of men lost in World War I, whose job it was to remember those lost but not forgotten."--Associated Press A BEST BOOK OF 2019 with The New York Public Library | USA TODAY | Real Simple | Good Housekeeping | Chicago Sun Time | TIME | PopSugar | The New York Post | Parade 1932. After the Great War took both her beloved brother and her fiancé, Violet Speedwell has become a "surplus woman," one of a generation doomed to a life of spinsterhood after the war killed so many young men. Yet Violet cannot reconcile herself to a life spent caring for her grieving, embittered mother. After countless meals of boiled eggs and dry toast, she saves enough to move out of her mother's place and into the town of Winchester, home to one of England's grandest cathedrals. There, Violet is drawn into a society of broderers--women who embroider kneelers for the Cathedral, carrying on a centuries-long tradition of bringing comfort to worshippers. Violet finds support and community in the group, fulfillment in the work they create, and even a growing friendship with the vivacious Gilda. But when forces threaten her new independence and another war appears on the horizon, Violet must fight to put down roots in a place where women aren't expected to grow. Told in Chevalier's glorious prose, A Single Thread is a timeless story of friendship, love, and a woman crafting her own life.

Book Short Summary:

New translations of the best stories by the one of the twentieth century's greatest and most influential writers Kafka, whose name has generated an adjective, is one of the best loved writers of the twentieth century. Known for his dark, enigmatic stories, for the absurd nightmares he depicts, his extraordinary imaginative depth is clear in stories from 'A Hunger Artist' to 'The Verdict'. But Kafka also wrote fizzingly funny, fresh stories, and The Unhappiness of Being a Single Man contains all the aspects of this genius: the wit and the grit; the horror and the humour; the longing and the laughing. They range from bizarre, two-sentence stories about Don Quixote to the famous brutal depiction of violence and justice that is 'In the Penal Colony'. In a nimble new translation by the acclaimed Alexander Starritt, this collection of Kafka's essential stories shows the genius at his very best.

Book Short Summary:

Hilarious and true-to-life, witty, compassionate, and impossible to put down, Straight Man follows Hank Devereaux through one very bad week in this novel from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Richard Russo. William Henry Devereaux, Jr., is the reluctant chairman of the English department of a badly underfunded college in the Pennsylvania rust belt. Devereaux's reluctance is partly rooted in his character--he is a born anarchist--and partly in the fact that his department is more savagely divided than the Balkans. In the course of a single week, Devereaux will have his nose mangled by an angry colleague, imagine his wife is having an affair with his dean, wonder if a curvaceous adjunct is trying to seduce him with peach pits, and threaten to execute a goose on local television. All this while coming to terms with his philandering father, the dereliction of his youthful promise, and the ominous failure of certain vital body functions. In short, Straight Man is classic Russo—side-splitting, poignant, compassionate, and unforgettable.

Book Short Summary:

The Challenge Built to Last, the defining management study of the nineties, showed how great companies triumph over time and how long-term sustained performance can be engineered into the DNA of an enterprise from the verybeginning. But what about the company that is not born with great DNA? How can good companies, mediocre companies, even bad companies achieve enduring greatness? The Study For years, this question preyed on the mind of Jim Collins. Are there companies that defy gravity and convert long-term mediocrity or worse into long-term superiority? And if so, what are the universal distinguishing characteristics that cause a company to go from good to great? The Standards Using tough benchmarks, Collins and his research team identified a set of elite companies that made the leap to great results and sustained those results for at least fifteen years. How great? After the leap, the good-to-great companies generated cumulative stock returns that beat the general stock market by an average of seven times in fifteen years, better than twice the results delivered by a composite index of the world's greatest companies, including Coca-Cola, Intel, General Electric, and Merck. The Comparisons The research team contrasted the good-to-great companies with a carefully selected set of comparison companies that failed to make the leap from good to great. What was different? Why did one set of companies become truly great performers while the other set remained only good? Over five years, the team analyzed the histories of all twenty-eight companies in the study. After sifting through mountains of data and thousands of pages of interviews, Collins and his crew discovered the key determinants of greatness -- why some companies make the leap and others don't. The Findings The findings of the Good to Great study will surprise many readers and shed light on virtually every area of management strategy and practice. The findings include: Level 5 Leaders: The research team was shocked to discover the type of leadership required to achieve greatness. The Hedgehog Concept (Simplicity within the Three Circles): To go from good to great requires transcending the curse of competence. A Culture of Discipline: When you combine a culture of discipline with an ethic of entrepreneurship, you get the magical alchemy of great results. Technology Accelerators: Good-to-great companies think differently about the role of technology. The Flywheel and the Doom Loop: Those who launch radical change programs and wrenching restructurings will almost certainly fail to make the leap. “Some of the key concepts discerned in the study,” comments Jim Collins, "fly in the face of our modern business culture and will, quite frankly, upset some people.” Perhaps, but who can afford to ignore these findings?

Book Short Summary:

When sun-bleached blonde, 28-year-old Mike decides to take a trip to Europe, he has two things in mind – to have fun and possibly bring back a lover. This construction worker, with his good looks and muscular body, sets off alone to taste the delights of Europe’s big cities, but he is soon joined by his nineteen-year-old nephew, Barry. Having Barry around could cramp his style, so to speak, but this doesn’t deter Mike, whose hormones travel faster than he does, and whose looks and body become a magnet for attracting men. When Barry teams up with his uncle, things go slightly awry and through a mistaken identity, the young, lithe, Barry is kidnapped. With the help of a couple of men that Mike has ‘tempted’ on his travels through bars, clubs and saunas, he sets out to track down Barry and rescue him. Wet, Wild and Willing is no Cook’s guided tour of sedentary travel; it is a racy trip of passion, lust and unadulterated pleasure found only in the hotbeds of Europe. It is a journey of thrills, excitement, friendship and experiences that you the reader can only dream of. Oscar Wilde once wrote: “I can resist anything but temptation”. Can you? Read on and see if you can resist …

Book Short Summary:

“독보적이고 눈부시고 몹시 감동적이다. 단 하나의 단어도 낭비하는 법이 없다.” 『가디언』 선정 ‘100대 영문 소설’ 매복하는 기억들은 순간순간 다시 떠오른다 언제나처럼 삶을 채우는 고독과 상실을 견뎌내는 어떤 하루 “그러나 금세 조지는 그 장면을 무의미하게 만들 허점을 발견한다. 그 그림에서 빠진 것은 짐이다. 소파 맞은편에 반대로 누워서 책을 읽고 있는 짐. 각자 책에 몰두하고 있지만, 서로 상대의 존재를 정확히 알고 있는 두 사람.”(117면) 오래 함께한 연인을 교통사고로 갑작스럽게 떠나보낸 한 남자가 있다. 조지, 58세, 대학 교수. 그리고 언제나처럼 눈뜨고, 출근하고, 강의하고, 퇴근하는 그의 하루. 조지는 죽은 연인의 옛 여자를 병문안하고, 오랜 친구와 저녁을 먹고, 혼자 바에서 술을 마시다가 제자인 케니를 만나기도 한다. 겉으로는 아무 사건도, 아무 문제도 없는 하루이지만, 문득문득 찾아오는 상실과 부재의 감각은 매번 날카롭고 아프고 생소하다. 『싱글 맨』은 크리스토퍼 이셔우드가 소설 속 조지와 같은 나이인 58세에 발표한 작품으로, 사별의 여진을 견디고 있는 한 중년 남성의 하루를 그린다. 아무리 충만하고 아무리 반짝인대도, 어느 순간 고통은 피할 수 없고 언젠가 상실은 찾아온다. 『싱글 맨』은 결국 누구나 발견하게 되는 이 삶의 빈자리들을 정제된 언어로 아름답고 통렬하게 비춘다. 조지는 아침이면 협소한 식탁에 앉아 느릿느릿 식사를 하는 삶의 수인인 자신의 모습을 본다. 외로움을 느낄 만한 빈 공간조차 없는 작은 집이지만 짐과 함께한 일상의 소소한 기억들은 곳곳에 매복해 있다가 그를 찔러 온다. 하지만 ‘조지’라는 역할에 충실한 이 베테랑 배우는 능숙하게 출근하고, 동료 교수들과 대화를 나누고, 학생들에게 강의를 한다. 이 평범하고 익숙한 일상에도 무언가는 일어난다. 동료와 대화하거나 강의하다가 갑자기 열변을 토하고, 퇴근길에 짐이 한때 만나던 도리스를 병문안하기도 한다. 도리스는 죽어가고, 질투나 패배감, 희미한 기억조차 사라지고 있다. 조지는 체육관에 들르고, 언덕에 오르고, 혼자 남게 된 오랜 친구 샬럿과 만나 옛일들을 떠올린다. 취한 채 혼자 술집으로 향했다 제자인 케니와 마주친 조지는 함께 남은 밤을 보내게 되고 사이사이 교감을 이뤘다고 느끼는 순간들이 점멸하며 조지의 어떤 하루는 사라져간다. 작품은 어느새 인생을 채우곤 하는 슬픔, 분노, 상실의 고통을 평범하고 고단한 일상을 견뎌내는 조지의 내면을 통해 담담하지만 묵직하게 그려낸다. 작가 스스로 자신이 쓴 글 중 가장 사랑하는, 바라는 바 그대로 쓰인 유일한 작품이라고 밝혔고, 『가디언』 선정 ‘100대 영문 소설’로도 꼽혔다. 2009년 톰 포드 감독에 의해 영화화되어 베니스 영화제 남우주연상 수상 및 『타임』 선정 ‘올해의 영화’ 등으로 호평받으면서 원작 소설 역시 재조명된 바 있다. ‘차마 말할 수 없는 것’은 여전히 여기 있어요 바로 당신들 한가운데에 “아무리 쉿 하며 조용히 시켜도 제 이름을 드러내려 하는 온갖 존재들. 조지는 말한다. 다른 여러 괴물들 중에서도 무엇보다, 이 자그마한 나를 두려워하지.”(25면) 동성애자임을 공언한 첫 세대에 속하는 이셔우드는 자신과 같은 나이에, 사는 곳도 직업도 같은 조지를 통해 정면으로 퀴어 문제를 다루며 본격적인 퀴어 문학의 장을 열었다. 20대 후반에 집필한 『베를린이여 안녕』에서 “결국 우리는 모두 퀴어죠. 정말 너무나 퀴어죠”라고 씁쓸히 말하던 이셔우드의 분신 같던 젊은 인물들은 이제 1960년대 미국에서 노년을 앞두고 퀴어로서 사랑하고 살고 이별한 후일담을 들려준다. 소설은 시종 잠잠한 일상을 따라 흘러가지만, 그 속에 깊숙이 자리한 분노나 맹렬한 비판을 부드럽게 덮어두지는 않는다. 조지는 상념 중에 “사람들은 짐의 존재조차 몰랐지만, 그 사람들 말, 그 사람들의 생각, 그 사람들의 생활양식, 그 모두가” 짐의 죽음에 책임이 있다며 분노를 속으로 곱씹거나 혐오자들과 선동가들을 공포에 떨게 하는 ‘조지 아저씨’를 상상하며 세상을 향한 증오를 드러내기도 한다. 차마 말할 수 없는, 있지도 않은 존재, 기껏해야 동정이나 치료의 대상으로 바라보는 사람들에게 조지는 나의 연인은 남편이나 아내의 대용품이 아니고, 나의 사랑도 뒤틀린 정신의 문제가 아니며, 퀴어인 나는 여기에, 바로 당신들 한가운데 있다고 선언한다. 조지는 똑같이 반려를 잃었지만, 그것은 아내나 남편을 잃는 일과는 같지 않다. 사랑도 기억도 고통도 여느 사람들과 같지만, 세상 속에서 그것은 같을 수 없다. 짐과의 관계는 세상의 대부분은 알 수 없이, 알려고 하지도 않은 채로 이제 온전히 혼자인 그의 세계에만 남아 있다. 이처럼 같으면서 같지 않은 조지의 고독은 제대로 이야기되지 못한 무수한 삶이 ‘있음’을 역설하며, 우리 각자의 삶을 설명하고 타인의 고독을 이해할 수 있는 공간을 넓혀준다. 살아남는다는 두려움도 살아 있다는 즐거움도 “완전히 지친 수영 선수나 육상 선수의 모습. 그러나 포기할 기미는 보이지 않는다. 우리가 바라보는 저 동물은 끝날 때까지 계속 싸우리라. 용감하기 때문이 아니다. 다른 대안은 아무것도 상상할 수 없기 때문이다.”(9면) 소설의 배경은 1962년의 미국, 쿠바 미사일 위기로 핵전쟁의 위협에서 막 벗어난 때이고, 주인공 조지는 사별의 여진을 견뎌내고 있다. 조지 스스로도 노년을 맞는 참이고, 짐의 옛 여자 도리스나 오랜 친구 샬럿 등 그의 주변 사람들도 시간 속에서 서서히 풍화하고 있다. 죽음은 교통사고나 핵전쟁처럼 갑작스럽게도, 병이나 노화로 천천히 찾아올 수도 있다. 실감은 아주 뚜렷하고, 조지는 죽음을 떠올리고 또 떠올린다. 그러나, 그렇기에, 조지는 결코 포기하지 않는다. 끝날 때까지 계속 싸울 것이다. “용감하기 때문이 아니”라 “다른 대안은 아무것도 상상할 수 없기 때문”에. 그리고 사랑하는 이는 없고 파편만 남은 세계에 홀로 살아남게 된다 해도 더 절실하고 열렬하게 살아 있음의 경이와 즐거움을 누릴 것이다. “나는 살아 있어!” 조지는 힘들게 승리를 거둔 늙은 몸으로, 현재에 사랑하고 현재에 살아야 한다고 말한다. 이셔우드는 인터뷰에서 조지가 꼭 자신의 분신은 아니라면서 자신은 조지만큼 용감하게 견뎌내지 못할 거라고 말했다. 살아남는다는 두려움도 살아 있다는 즐거움도 너무나 잘 아는 이 오랜 삶의 수인은 긴 하루의 끝, 눈을 감는 마지막 순간까지 꿋꿋하게 현재를, 삶을 끌어안는다. 『싱글 맨』은 별다른 사건도 없이 일상의 장면 장면을 세심하게 배치하며 이야기를 완성해나간다. 죽음이 임박한 도리스를 병문안하고, 역시 혼자 남은 친구 샬럿을 만나 취하도록 이런저런 대화를 나누고, 이어 제자인 케니를 우연히 만나 미묘한 교감을 나누는 작은 사건들은 이를 바라보고 전하는 조지의 눈을 통해 의미를 갖게 된다. 이 소설의 진짜 이야기는 조지의 내면에서 분노, 증오 같은 격렬함과 성찰과 절제 같은 고요함이 매순간 부딪히며 내는 파장들에 있다. 우리는 조지 내면의 드라마를 좇으며 조지를 이해하거나 공감하고, 함께 삶의 의미를 곰곰 돌아보게 된다. 젊은 시절 일찍이 써머싯 몸이 ‘영국 문학의 미래’라고 극찬했던 이셔우드는 말년에 발표한 이 ‘얇은 대작’에서 녹슬지 않은 필력에 원숙함을 더해 간결하지만 깊은 성찰을 담아낸다. 소설은 1960년대 미국 사회에 대한 예리한 통찰, 소수자의 시선으로 보는 삶의 면모들을 생생하게 그려내며, 상실과 고독이라는 영원한 주제를 묵직하고 감동적으로 다뤄 깊은 공감을 끌어낸다. 차례 싱글 맨 역자의 말 책 속에서 “주방으로 가는 문은 너무 좁다. 손에 그릇을 든 두 사람이 서둘러 가면 이 문에서 부딪치기 십상이다. 거의 매일 아침 계단을 내려온 조지가 자기도 모르는 새 갑자기 참혹하게 꺾인 듯, 날카롭게 갈린 듯, 길이 산사태로 사라진 듯 느끼게 되는 곳도 여기다. 잠시 걸음을 멈추고, 늘 처음인 양 아프고 생소하게 깨닫는 곳도 여기다. 짐은 죽었다. 죽었다.”(11~12면) “그러나 스트렁크 부인, 부인이 읽는 책은 틀렸어요. 그 책에는 내가 짐을 진짜 아들, 진짜 동생, 진짜 남편, 진짜 아내의 대용품으로 생각한다고 적혀 있죠. 그러나 짐은 무엇의 대용품이 아닙니다. 죄송한 말씀이지만, 짐의 대용품도 없습니다. 어디에도요.”(27~28면) “‘차마 말할 수 없는 것’은 여전히 여기 있어요. 바로 당신들 한가운데에.”(28면) “1920년대와 1930년대의 위기 상황에서, 각각의 전쟁은 조지에게 질병과 같은 상처를 남겼다. 가장 끔찍한 것은 절멸에 대한 두려움이었다. 이제 우리에게는 훨씬 더 끔찍한 두려움이 생겼다. 살아남을지 모른다는 두려움. 살아남아서 파편만 남은 세상에서 살아야 한다는 두려움.”(88면) “조지는 집에서 편하게, 지금 산 재료로 저녁을 만들고, 책꽂이 옆에 있는 소파에 누워서 책을 읽다가 서서히 잠드는 밤을 상상한다. 얼핏 생각하기에, 집에서 만족스럽게 보내는 저녁으로는 더할 수 없이 그럴싸하고 멋진 장면 같다. 그러나 금세 조지는 그 장면을 무의미하게 만들 허점을 발견한다. 그 그림에서 빠진 것은 짐이다. 소파 맞은편에 반대로 누워서 책을 읽고 있는 짐. 각자 책에 몰두하고 있지만, 서로 상대의 존재를 정확히 알고 있는 두 사람.”(117면) 작가의 말·추천사 서사는 예리하고 섬세하며 능숙하고, 가라앉은 분노가 균열하며 드러난다. 주인공 조지는 최근 그의 연인 짐을 교통사고로 잃고, 사별의 슬픔과 싸운다. 동성 결혼, 그후를 그리며 이별의 고통을 파고드는 이 작품은 독보적이고 눈부시고 몹시 감동적이다. 단 하나의 단어도 낭비하는 법이 없다. - 『가디언』 소설가로서 이셔우드의 뛰어난 재능이 전혀 바래지 않았다는 증거. - 앤서니 버지스 (『시계태엽 장치 오렌지』 저자) 1964년에 처음 발간된 이셔우드의 『싱글 맨』은 현대 동성애 인권 운동에 커다란 영향을 미친 최초이자 최고의 소설이다. - 에드먼드 화이트 (『어느 소년의 고백』 저자) 절로 고개가 숙여지는, 통렬하고 뛰어난 책. - 스티븐 스펜더 (영국 시인) 책의 첫장부터 조지는 연인을 잃었고, 서서히 찾아오는 노쇠를 겪고 있다. 그러나 조지에게는 삶이 있고, 그는 결코 포기하지 않는다. 아름다운 문장들. 영화가 만족스럽지 못했대도 책은 그렇지 않을 것이다. -

Book Short Summary:

This important new text is the product of several years of research of the family law of fifteen Commonwealth Caribbean jurisdictions. It is the first and only legal text that comprehensively covers all the main substantive areas of spousal family law, including marriage, divorce, financial support, property rights and domestic violence. The rights of the statutory spouse in the jurisdictions of Barbados, Belize, Guyana, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago are examined, thus addressing, on a jurisdictional basis, an important area of spousal family that is seldom covered in English family law texts. The book also covers the number and variations of divorce regimes applicable to the region – the matrimonial offence divorce model of Guyana and Montserrat, the English five fact model of Trinidad and Tobago, Dominica, Grenada, Anguilla, and St Vincent and the Grenadines, the hybrid model of Antigua and Barbuda, Belize and St Kitts and Nevis, and the no fault model of Jamaica and Barbados. This book will prove an indispensable resource for law students and legal academics, as well as for family law practitioners across the English-speaking Caribbean. Other professionals, including sociologists and social workers, will also find the book useful and informative.

Book Short Summary:

Novelist, memoirist, diarist, and gay pioneer Christopher Isherwood left a wealth of writings. Known for his crisp style and his camera-like precision with detail, Isherwood gained fame for his Berlin Stories, which served as source material for the hit stage musical and Academy Award–winning film Cabaret. More recently, his experiences and career in the United States have received increased attention. His novel A Single Man was adapted into an Oscar-nominated film; his long relationship with the artist Don Bachardy, with whom he shared an openly gay lifestyle, was the subject of an award-winning documentary, Chris & Don: A Love Story; and his memoir, Christopher and His Kind, was adapted for the BBC. Isherwood’s colorful journeys took him from post–World War I England to Weimar Germany to European exile to Golden Age Hollywood to Los Angeles in the full flower of gay liberation. After the publication of his diaries, which run to more than one million words and span nearly a half century, it is possible to fully assess his influence. This collection of essays considers Isherwood’s diaries, his vast personal archive, and his published works and offers a multifaceted appreciation of a writer who spent more than half of his life in southern California. James J. Berg and Chris Freeman have brought together the most informative scholarship of the twenty-first century to illuminate the craft of one of the singular figures of the twentieth century. Isherwood, the American, emerges from the shadow of his English reputation to stake his claim as a significant force in late twentieth-century American culture whose legacy continues in the twenty-first century.

Book Short Summary:

The Literary Agenda is a series of short polemical monographs about the importance of literature and of reading in the wider world and about the state of literary education inside schools and universities. The category of 'the literary' has always been contentious. What is clear, however, is how increasingly it is dismissed or is unrecognised as a way of thinking or an arena for thought. It is sceptically challenged from within, for example, by the sometimes rival claims of cultural history, contextualized explanation, or media studies. It is shaken from without by even greater pressures: by economic exigency and the severe social attitudes that can follow from it; by technological change that may leave the traditional forms of serious human communication looking merely antiquated. For just these reasons this is the right time for renewal, to start reinvigorated work into the meaning and value of literary reading. We live in days, no leaving them or choosing them. What's in a day? With their natural narrative arc they begin and they end, and in between we talk about how they are going or wonder 'where' they have gone. They each have their small stories, non-stories, ephemeral stories. So every day slips by, most days much like most other days. We eat, we sleep, we go to work; we endure, enjoy, continue. Day after day, day before day, it is the recurring of no particular story in endless, beginningless succession. At the same time, any single day is also a unique date, with its multi-digit identity, its moment-at last, and never again-of here and now, today. And on longer scales, the slow small shifts of ordinary days and their surrounding stories will eventually remake the days that have been and gone as the times that are no more. An ordinary day from decades, let alone centuries ago must now be a 'once' long passed away, the old days to be regretted-or to be revived in all the curiosity of their historical difference. Everyday Stories makes us think again about the ordinary life we are in, day after day and day by day: always the same, and always slightly changing. Entering into the single day, drawing out the stories that surround us, this book goes into everyday stories of many descriptions, old and new: both in literature and in that story-laden place and time we call real life.

Book Short Summary:

Yves Charles Zarka shows you how Hobbes established the framework for modern political thought. Discover the origin of liberalism in the Hobbesian theory of negative liberty; that Hobbesian interest and contract are essential to contemporary discussions of the comportment of economic actors; and how state sovereignty returns anew in the form of the servility of the state. At the same time, Zarka controversially argues against received readings claiming that Hobbes is a thinker of a state monopoly on legitimate violence.

Book Short Summary:

One of the biggest decisions you will make in life is to pair up in marriage. While this is an important consideration for both men and women, it is an especially important one for women. This is because the number of eligible women surpasses that of eligible men in most communities. Secondly, men tend to take longer to decide on settling down in marriage, which makes test-driving relationships that end nowhere frustrating for women. But, if you have been looking and Mr. Right has yet to come knocking at your door, what do you do? Simply, you don’t leave it all to chance as though you expect him to fall from the sky, you do your homework. As you do, please don’t chase a man, attract him! Are you tired of being played by men who won’t commit? Do you look forward to the day when you are the bride rather than the bridesmaid? Have you had enough of being bumped by less endowed women time and again? Do you believe that it is time for you to be the main show in the arms of your own man? If the answer to any of these questions is “yes”, for you, a friend, schoolmate, family member, coworker, churchmate, or friend of a friend, then look no further. This is your moment to act and the tool you need. Husband Magnet will not only help a single woman fast-track to success in attracting a worthy man for marriage, it is a handy companion for a married woman who wishes to spice up her marriage. This book will teach you how to be a husband magnet.

London Labour and the London Poor

Book Short Summary:

London Labour and the London Poor originated in a series of newspaper articles written by the great journalist Henry Mayhew between 1849 and 1850. A dozen years later, it had grown into the fullest picture we have of labouring people in the world's greatest city in the nineteenth century: a four volume account of the hopes, customs, grievances and habits of the working-classes that allows them to tell their own stories. Combining practicality with compassion, Mayhew worked unencumbered by political theory and strove solely to report on the lives of the London poor, their occupations and trades. This selection shows how well he succeeded. From costermongers to ex-convicts, from chimney-sweeps to vagrants, the underprivileged of London are uniquely brought to life - their plight expressed through a startling blend of first person accounts, Mayhew's perceptions, and sharp statistics.

  • Pdf File: negative-inversion-social-meaning-and-gricean-implicature.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Relying on a wealth of new data, this book argues that long-standing puzzles of Negative Inversion (NI) syntax are not puzzles at all when viewed through the lenses of Gricean pragmatics and Labovian sociolinguistics. Focusing on sentences such as "Can't nobody lift that rock" in African American, Anglo, and Chicano Englishes in Texas, the book provides tidy solutions to problems such as: the NI’s relationship to its non-inverted counterpart, its relationship to existential “there” sentences, to modal existential sentences, to the definiteness effects surrounding its NP subject, the emphatic meaning with which it seems to be associated, and more. The book argues that such issues, which have been explored in the syntax and semantics literature since the late 1960s, are handled more fruitfully via Gricean reasoning, demographics of use, and a simple semantics. As such, the book argues that NI can be freed from the “syntactico-semantic straitjacket” into which it has often been forced. It also demonstrates ways in which pragmatic and sociolinguistic thought can be brought together to inform larger linguistic analyses.

Book Short Summary:

Investing for a Lifetime is designed to make saving and investing understandable to the investor. Wharton Professor Richard C. Marston, 2014 recipient of the Investment Management Consultants Association’s prestigious Matthew R. McArthur Award, guides an investor through the main investment decisions throughout a lifetime. Investing for a Lifetime shows: how younger investors can set savings goals how both younger and older investors can choose investment portfolios to achieve these goals how investors can sustain spending once reaching retirement. Younger and older investors alike should understand savings goals that will provide enough income to sustain spending in retirement. They should devise rates of saving that allow them to reach their goals by the time of retirement. Though retirement is often the main goal of investing, it’s not the only one. Marston discusses how funding a child’s education or saving for a down payment for a home affects overall saving. Sensible investing is also necessary for savings goals to be realized. Investing need not be complicated, but Marston explains that a diversified portfolio should include a mix of different types of U.S. stocks, foreign stocks, real estate as well as bonds. He describes each of these asset classes and shows how they fit in an investor’s portfolio. He shows how investors can monitor the performance of their portfolios by establishing benchmarks for each asset class to judge how well their investments are doing. He focuses particular attention on those investors nearing retirement. In today’s low interest rate environment, he discusses whether it is possible to fund retirement from interest and dividends alone. He shows how savings combined with Social Security can fund retirement spending. And he asks how the “New Normal” of lower returns might force investors to save more than in past decades, and to spend less in retirement than in the past. Investing for a Lifetime is for investors who want to understand more about the savings and investment process, particularly those who worry about whether their retirement savings will last a lifetime.

  • Pdf File: singleness.pdf

Book Short Summary:

The book is a systematic study of the issue of self-individuation in the scholastic debate on principles of individuation (principia individuationis). The point of departure is a general formulation of the problem of individuation acceptable for all the participants of the scholastic debate: a principle of individuation of x is what makes x individual (in various possible senses of ‘making something individual’). The book argues against a prima facie plausible view that everything that is individual is individual by itself and not by anything distinct from it (Strong Self-Individuation Thesis). The keynote topic of the book is a detailed analysis of the two competing ways of rejecting the Strong Self-Individuation Thesis: the Scotistic and the Thomistic one. The book defends the latter one, discussing a number of issues concerning substantial and accidental forms, essences, properties, instantiation, the Thomistic notion of materia signata, Frege’s Begriff-Gegenstand distinction, and Geach’s form-function analogy developed in his writings on Aquinas. In the context of both the scholastic and contemporary metaphysics, the book offers a framework for dealing with issues of individuality and defends a Thomistic theory of individuation.

A mysterious cult is pushing a designer drug, and only Moodrow can shut the deadly organization down Though they preach love and understanding, the people of Hanover House also know a thing or two about strong-arm tactics. When an errant member of the Canal Street cult plans to write a tell-all book exposing Davis Craddock’s pseudo-religion as a sham, the Hanoverians react calmly. One of the cult’s members, Flo Alamare, is dispatched to let the would-be author know that he’s welcome to write whatever he likes—so long as he doesn’t care whether his daughter lives or dies. Soon Flo is found dumped in an empty lot in the Bronx. She’s barely alive, having apparently suffered a stroke or seizure—and the doctors don’t realize that she overdosed on a powerful drug of Craddock’s own design. She’s returned to her parents, who had been desperately searching for her. The tough-minded Alamares want revenge, and hire bruising PI Stanley Moodrow to catch Craddock and break his cult wide open.

Book Short Summary:

The young adventurous sailors, Tommo and Toby, abandon ship and flee into the jungle of an island in French Polynesia. But their feelings of victory will be short-lived. Because they are about to run straight into the hands of the Typee, the most feared of the battling cannibal tribes. Inspired by his own adventures, twenty-five-year-old Herman Melville wrote ‘Typee’ (1846) as a blend of creative memoir, cultural commentary, and good story-telling. He would later tell his friend Nathaniel Hawthorne (author of ‘The Scarlet Letter’) that "from my twenty-fifth year I date my life". Despite being mostly recognized, today, as the author of the classic novel, ‘Moby Dick’, ‘Typee’ was Melville’s best-selling novel in his life-time. Herman Melville (1819-1891) was an American writer, best known for his whaling novel, ‘Moby Dick’, which was poorly received at the time but considered a classic today.
