Simon & Schuster, 2008-01-08. Hardcover. VeryGood. () Both a memoir and an investigation, Swimming in a Sea of Death is David Rieff''s loving tribute to his mother, the writer Susan Sontag, and her final battle with cancer. Rieff''s brave, passionate, and unsparing witness of the last nine months of her life, from her initial diagnosis to her death, is both an intensely personal portrait of the relationship between a mother and a son, and a reflection on what it is like to try to help someone gravely ill in her fight to go on living and, when the time comes, to die with dignity. Rieff offers no easy answers. Instead, his intensely personal book is a meditation on what it means to confront death in our culture. In his most profound work, this brilliant writer confronts the blunt feelings of the survivor -- the guilt, the self-questioning, the sense of not having done enough. And he tries to understand what it means to desire so desperately, as his mother did to the end of her life, to try almost anything in order to go on living.

" For a thousand years men have denied her existence--Pope Joan, the woman who disguised herself as a man and rose to rule Christianity for two years. Now this compelling novel animates the legend with a portrait of an unforgettable woman who struggles against restrictions her soul cannot accept. When her older brother dies in a Viking attack, the brilliant young Joan assumes his identity and enters a Benedictine monastery where, as Brother John Anglicus, she distinguishes herself as a scholar and healer. Eventually drawn to Rome, she soon becomes enmeshed in a dangerous mix of powerful passion and explosive politics that threatens her life even as it elevates her to the highest throne in the Western world.

Here are some of the remarkable features of Barnes and Noble Classics: All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. Barnes and Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influencesbiographical, historical, and literaryto enrich each readers understanding of these enduring works. Highly controversial because of its frank look at the sexual hypocrisy of Victorian society, Thomas Hardys Tess of the DUrbervilles was nonetheless a great commercial success when it appeared in 1891. It is now considered one of the finest novels in English. Using richly poetic language to frame a shattering narrative of love, seduction, betrayal, and murder, Hardy tells the story of Tess Durbeyfield, a beautiful young woman living with her impoverished family in Wessex, the southwestern English county immortalized by Hardy. After the family learns of their connection to the wealthy dUrbervilles, they send Tess to claim a portion of their fortune. She meets and is seduced by the dissolute Alec dUrberville and secretly bears a child, Sorrow, who dies in infancy. A very different man, Angel Clare, seems to offer Tess love and salvation, but he rejects heron their wedding nightafter learning of her past. Emotionally bereft, financially impoverished, and victimized by the self-righteous rigidity of English social morality, Tess escapes from her vise of passion through a horrible, desperate act. With its compassionate portrait of a young rural woman, powerful criticism of social convention, and disarming consideration of the role of destiny in human life, Tess of the DUrbervilles is one of the most moving and memorable of Hardys novels. David Galef has published nine books: the novels Flesh and Turning Japanese; two childrens books, The Little Red Bicycle and Tracks; two translations of Japanese proverbs, Even Monkeys Fall from Trees and Even a Stone Buddha Can Talk; a work of literary criticism, The Supporting Cast; an edited anthology of essays called Second Thoughts: A Focus on Rereading; and, most recently, the short-story collection Laugh Track.

FROM THE PUBLISHER - On July 23, 1802, the Duchess of Alba, one of Spain’s most beautiful and notorious ladies, died in her bed at the age of forty. To this day, her death remains a mystery. Was she poisoned by Manuel Godoy, first minister to the royal family and her sometime lover? Or did she die by the hand of Francisco Goya, court painter of humble origins, whose affair with the Duchess shocked Spanish society? Perhaps it was suicide, prompted by her fading beauty and her addiction to the ‘powder of the Andes.’ Did the Queen, whose jealous venom knew no bounds, have a hand in the Duchess’s end? Or did Prince Fernando, whose bid for the throne became the ruin of Spain, take part in the crime? Written in the form of a personal memoir by Godoy, the official who was charged with investigating the affair, this daring historical novel brings to life the drama and intrigue of eighteenth-century Madrid while it focuses on the mysterious death of one of the city’s great femmes fatales. Confidante and lover to several aristocrats, including Godoy, the Duchess had scandalous affairs with men beneath her rank, the most famous of which was a long-term Liaison with Goya, who immortalized her in his best-known works. We hear the fictional voices both of Godoy, now enduring a lonely political exile in Italy, and of Goya, living out his remaining years in Bordeaux, as they narrate their differing versions of the events surrounding Alba’s death. With the fine observation of a great artist, Goya describes the noblewoman who tormented him in his passion-seductive, impulsive, manipulative, ravishing. And Godoy, glancing back on his days of glory shapes the facts to fit his preferred version of history. Each has his own, equally believable, notion of what occurred that night. But who knows what really happened in this crime with no witnesses? Only a letter, received decades after the event, provides the answer. Antonio Larreta was born in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 1922. Playwright, actor, film critic, and scriptwriter, he now lives in Madrid. Under the title Volaverunt, this novel, his first, won the Editorial Planeta Prize when it first appeared in Spain. It has been a major Spanish bestseller, with over 150,000 copies in print. Jacket design: Saksa Art & Design, Inc. Jacket illustration: Francisco Goya, The Naked Maja, Museo del Prado, Madrid. .

Napoleon's mother was a women of outstanding beauty, courage, energy and dignity. Throughout her long life she never ceased to be the centre of the extraordinary Bonaparte family.

It's a shame that Henry Roth died in 1995, because now readers will never know what happens to his fictional alter ego, Ira Stigman, once he leaves City College. For readers familiar with Roth's series of autobiographical novels, Requiem for Harlem is the last of four books chronicling the childhood and young adulthood of Stigman; for those who have not yet discovered Roth, consider reading the first three in the series to get a handle on the dark, complicated, and rich world Ira Stigman occupies. Set in 1920s Harlem, Roth's novels explore the life of Jewish immigrants. In earlier volumes, the reader meets Ira, his sister Minnie, his cousin Stella, and his parents. Home life for the Stigmans is hardly heartwarming: the parents are locked in a violent marriage, and the children are involved in incestuous relationships. By the time Roth and Stigman have reached the events chronicled in Requiem for Harlem, Ira and Minnie are no longer sleeping together, but Ira and Stella are. Requiem for Harlem follows Ira through his college years and his attempts to separate from his family, his neighborhood, and his own past. His childish passions for Minnie and Stella give way to his attraction to an older woman, Professor Edith Welles--an attraction that is as complex in its own way as his earlier relationships with his sister and cousin. It's unfortunate that there will be no further volumes taking us through the rest of Ira's life, but for those who wonder what happened to him, there is the example of Henry Roth to guide us. From Publishers Weekly The fourth?and final?volume of Roth's astonishing, largely autobiographical bildungsroman, Mercy of a Rude Stream, retains the brilliant insight of the previous volumes with only a fraction of their suspense. The story picks up in 1927, six months after volume three, From Bondage, left off. Still living in the Harlem slums with his parents and young sister, City College senior Ira Stigman is on fire with Milton's poetry and wracked by guilt over his sexual relations with his 16-year-old cousin Stella. Although the reader has known since volume three that Ira's eventual deliverer and muse will be his NYU English instructor (and the mistress of his best friend), Roth delays the inception of this affair until the novel's conclusion and meanwhile dwells on what seem red herrings: Stella's pregnancy scare and her grandfather's apparent discovery of her trysts with Ira. Roth, who died in 1995 (leaving two more novels, which will be published separately), covers little new ground here, although the writing displays its usual nuance and technical virtuosity. The novel's most interesting revelations concern the mental illness of Ira's mother's and Ira's ruthlessness in getting the "hell out of Harlem," even if it means betraying his best friend or brutalizing Stella. This is a chilling portrait of selfishness struggling through art towards justification. Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc. . Hard Cover.

But would I change who I married. . . . Never." --Dana Reeve He was a hero in every sense of the word--the chiseled-from-granite star of four blockbuster Superman films and the romantic classic Somewhere in Time who, after being paralyzed in a freak horseback riding accident, became a symbol of hope for millions. Dana Reeve was no less heroic, standing steadfastly by her husband's side until his surprisingly sudden and unexpected death at age fifty-two. When Dana, a non-smoker, passed away from lung cancer just seventeen months after Chris's death, she left behind their thirteen-year-old son, Will, to be raised by friends and family. Dana was only forty-four years old. That fate could have dealt such a cruel hand to this golden couple seemed unfathomable. That they could endure it all with grace, courage, and humor defied belief. Yet for all the millions of words that have been written about their public causes and private struggles following Chris's accident, little is known about the lives they led as passionate young lovers. Now, in the manner of his poignant-yet-stirring bestsellers Jack and Jackie, Jackie After Jack, An Affair to Remember, The Day Diana Died, After Diana, and The Day John Died, No. l New York Times bestselling author Christopher Andersen draws on those who knew them best to examine in touching detail the Reeves' unique partnership and the romance, faith, and fortitude that defined it. Sometimes heartbreaking, often uplifting, always compelling, Somewhere in Heaven is more than just a portrait of a marriage. It is the profoundly human story of two souls whose brief lives made a difference, a bittersweet saga of tragedy, triumph, and loss, and--above all else--a love story for the ages.. First Edition.

The most original and most delightful of the Founding Fathers, Benjamin Franklin was publisher and printer, essayist and author, businessman and "general," scientist and philologist, politician and diplomat, moralist and sage--and a thoroughly rational patriot who was a major force in winning his country's independence and securing its life in the Constitution. Born poor in Cotton Mather's Boston, he was soon at ease in Quaker Philadelphia, and later in royal London, and in elegant Paris. Born with no advantages, he died wealthy and esteemed. He was the quintessential American, almost totally free of the limits of his environment, ready to accept any challenge, to speculate, experiment, and question. Esmond Wright, the distinguished English scholar of America, sees Franklin as an Old England Man and a reluctant revolutionary; civilized, urbane, devious, and on occasion just a little unscrupulous. For, despite his charm and genius, Franklin was not admired by everybody. His contemporary John Adams thought little of his political abilities, and the Federalist pamphleteer William Cobbett called him a "crafty and lecherous old hypocrite." In the next century, Mark Twain, Hawthorne, and Melville did not value him; still later, D. H. Lawrence despised the middle-class morality he promoted. Many today deplore his lack of interest in the arts or metaphysics, his lack of passionate commitment, his opportunism, his occasional coarseness. Yet his success in business, his many-faceted public career, his ingenious inventions and world-renowned scientific genius, his splendid prose style, his worldly wisdom, and the attractive personality that shines through his remarks and writings, made Benjamin Franklin the "new man" of the eighteenth-century dream and also vastly appealing to the modern temper. Wright's new biography presents a fully rounded portrait of this remarkable man for all ages. This first comprehensive biography of Franklin in fifty years has taken advantage of Yale's massive edition-in-progress of Franklin's papers and of the many specialized studies inspired by the correspondence.
