Following the death of her mother, nineteen-yea r-old Lucy Harmon is sent by her father to Italy to stay with old family fr iends and to have her portrait done. She is eager to renew her acquaintance with Niccolo Donati, the handsome young boy from a neighboring family with whom she shared her first kiss on a visit years earlier, and anxious to so lve a riddle left in her mother's diary - the answer to which may change Lu cy's life forever., Grove Press, 1996, Vintage Books. 2007. Paperback. Very Good. A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. A glittering collection of short stories set in Tibet from one of China's f oremost writers -- banned in China for its language, sexuality and picture of Tibet. A Chinese writer whose marriage has fallen apart travels to Tibet. As he wa nders through the countryside, he witnesses the sky burial of a Tibetan wom an who died during childbirth, shares a tent with a nomad who is walking to a sacred mountain to seek forgiveness for sleeping with his daughter, meet s a silversmith who has hung the wind-dried corpse of his lover to the wall s of his cave, and hears the story of a young female incarnate lama who die d during a Buddhist initiation rite. In the thin air of the high plateau, t he divide between fact and fiction becomes confused and the man is drawn de ep into an alien culture he knew nothing about, and which haunts his dreams . Famously banned in China in 1987, Stick Out Your Tongue, is the book that set Ma Jian on the road to exile, and still makes it difficult for him to publish his work in China today. Written shortly after the journey to Tibet he describes so vividly in his prize-winnning travel memoir Red Dust, it is an extraordinary collection of stories about an extraordinary place -- a picture of Tibet that is both enchanting and horrifying, violent and beautiful, perverse and seductive. Ma Jian has written a new afterword for the book that explains it's title (it is what a doctor says to an ill patient when looking for a diagnosis) how it came to be written and something, Vintage Books, 2007, Vision. 2001. Paperback. Very Good+. A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: "Things fall apart, the center cannot hold." Yeats's words seem fitting fo r the slowly disintegrating Airie family and their son Pilot, a schizophren ic. Twenty years ago, Pilot's little sister, Fiona, disappeared. In the af termath, the Airie family fell apart--"unraveled," Pilot observes. Old sin s have long shadows, and Pilot both welcomes and fears the darkness those shadows offer. His memories of Fiona's disappearance haunt him, but they a re also an anchor to a past that seems more authentic than the present. Pilot's schizophrenia is all the more poignant contrasted with the poise of his older brother Eric, a prominent neurosurgeon. Eric is the one who comes to his mother's rescue when she is stranded on the highway, unable to see to drive home after Pilot's attempt to help her devolves into a terrifying, emotional paralysis: Did they know that things had become transparent again, clear as a blue sky seen through blue water? That I could actually see the cancer forming like a tulip bulb at the base of my mother's optical nerve? I could look through the trees all the way to the highway, through her car, and through her hair and skin and cartilage and bone into the folds of tissue around her eyes, to see the muscles dilating, the tendrils of nerves and vessels of blood, and the radical cells dividing there, and dividing again. Division also lies at the core of the relationship between Pilot and Eric. Drifting between past and present, the narrative reveals a long history of cruelty and abuse, which, after festering for years, erupts into what Eric's therapist, Vision, 2001, The History Press.

Fireworks and frivolity? A party? Music? Dancing? Or you could be reading in bed, between clean linen sheets before falling into deep and restful sleep and sweet dreams. And who knows; the night might bring romance, or love, or sex, if you play your cards right. Or you might be working; millions of people work at night. If nobody worked at night, Britain would cease to function. Or the night might be cold, haunted, inhuman and wild. When you look up into the night sky, you see that you are nothing. An insignificant mote of dust. Or the night could be all too human. Hen parties in skimpy dresses and fairy wings being slammed into the back of a police van; girls working on street corners in the part of town where the lights don't come on; businessmen going to lap-dancing clubs to forget what waits at home. Or you could die. Most people do die at night. Or you could just lie awake and wait for the dawn. Set over the course of an intoxicated night in a house up a mountain in West Cork, Ian Marchant offers a darkly funny account of what people get up to at night, explores his own experience of a life of night times, and shows us how we all have something of the night about us., Holt Rinehart Winston, 1966.

New. 0393065685 The Barnes & Noble Review Wallace Stevens taught us that "Death is the mother of beauty." Mortality hovers over Stanley Plumly's tenth book, lending it a veiled and subtle beauty. Butterflies slip "through more molting lives / than saints --"; elsewhere "spirit birds" fly through "The spirit world the negative of this one; / soft outlines of soft whites against soft darks"; the narrator's own mother lies becalmed on hard white sheets, the narrative of legs, arms, animal centers stilled, some starlight in the mind glittering off and on, couldn't tell me whether or not to leave her The keystone sequence, "Elevens" -- comprising eleven poems, of eleven lines each -- takes us straight into the heart of mortality's dilemma. The poet's own "old heart" reveals itself, "lit up on the screen, / the arteries, veins and ventricles." Plumly centers his poetry inside the embodied world -- air, snow, mountains, trees, grass, animals, insects. His lines have a sinuous and subtle beauty, like smoke. Yet they light up again and again in pure radiance. Poets speak to one another across time and space in their poetry. In Old Heart, Plumley converses with Pound, Stevens, Eliot, and Keats, and with his contemporaries: Donald Justice, Michael Collier, Henri Cole. As the list suggests, this is a curiously masculine book, like Melville's Ishmael adrift on the sea. It is also wide-rangingly philosophical, understated, modest, and, ultimately, hauntingly exquisite. --Liz Rosenberg From the Publisher In his new collection of poetry, Plumly confronts and celebrates mortality in the natural world, in the immediacy of loss of friends, and in personal encounters. Publishers Weekly The eighth gathering of poems from Plumly (Now That My Father Lies Down Beside Me) offers many beauties but few surprises. Onrushing, almost whispering, pentameters, divided into lyric meditations, depict the winters, summers, springs, snows, fogs, skies and greenery of Europe and of the American East Coast, where Plumly resides. We see "a winter city, night city, streetlights/ blurred in mist" (Prague); "glittering halves of oyster shells"; "first crocuses and the lavender called redbud" blooming on a college campus; even, in one poem called "Pastoral," the "complexities of leaves,/ the umbels, whorls, bracts, and involucres." Plumly remains as much a poet of elegy as he is a poet of nature: odes and memorials to other poets, living and dead, show "how we all change with time but don't." Plumly can seem morbid, or bathetic, as in a sonnet called "When He Fell Backwards into His Coffin," about a corpse found in a bathtub; he can also seem content with mere prettiness, speaking nothing but "Summer's/ language like sunlight on stone, light itself the stone." Yet Plumly has admirers for good reason: few poets have sounded so often so comfortable at once with the recollections and strong emotions involved in autobiography, and with attention to a beautiful natural world.

HarperCollins. 1999. Paperback. Very Good+. Fanatical terrorists have targeted New York City. Their demand: release the kidnapped leader who is being secretly held by the federal government, or the slaughter of innocents will begins. No place is safe, and as bombs expl ode across the city, the death toll begins to rise. Dedicated FBI agent Anthony Hubbard leads the investigation to find the kil lers, a race against time that will take him to secret enclaves deep within New York and into the sights of the ruthless General William Deveraux. A d ecorated military hero with ties to the highest reaches of power, this rene gade general will be stopped by nothing in his crusade to eliminate the ter rorists. Between them is Elise Kraft, a beautiful CIA operative with intima te ties to Islamic revolutionaries, and her own mysterious agenda. Caught in a perilous net of lies, deceit, and betrayal, these three are the country's only hope to stop th bloody extremists before they strike again., HarperCollins, 1999, Faber and Faber Ltd. 2000. Paperback. Very Good. Swingers is an affectionate, hilarious ode to the fine arts of friendship, bar-hopping and girl chasing. Told in the hip retro-vernacular of the 90s l ounge lizard, it's the tale of a "rat pack" of young, under-employed actors , hanging out together in Hollywood. Mike is pining for his ex- girlfriend; his suave buddy Trent wants to entice him away from his stuffy apartment an d back out among "the beautiful babies" on the club scene. HQ for the guys' nocturnal manoeuvres is Sue's pad, where they debate the techniques of sed uction and fight over video ice-hockey. But can Mike ever overcome his low self-esteem, accept Trent's assurance that he's "a big winner" and so woo a nd win his true love? This volume also includes the Swingers Rules--a concise lesson in the do's and don'ts of modern dating, as explained by author and actor Jon Favreau ( Mike) and actor Vince Vaughn. One of a hand-picked selection of some of the most popular and cult-worthy titles on Faber and Faber's extensive list of film scripts., Faber and Faber Ltd, 2000, Country Beautiful. Used - Acceptable. Country Beautiful, 01/01/1977, Hardcover, Acceptable condition. Book Very Good. No dust jacket., Country Beautiful, NY: Penguin, 1989 A sharp copy. The jazzy, 70-page novelette-in-verse that comprises this book's title poem will strike some readers as deliciously chic, while others may find it an insipid joke that quickly palls. Transported to Hollywood, the anonymous narrator gets mixed up with Stella, hostess-cum-bodyguard who packs a revolver under her pink kimono, and with her ex-boyfriend, bighearted circus performer Rocco the Human Cannonball, fond of spinach and Charlie Parker saxophone riffs. Featuring a flimsy, ridiculous plot, bizarre characters, frenzied sex and the ever-present buzz of Los Angeles, this verse narrative burlesques Raymond Chandler's detective fiction, surrealist novels and classical odes. The language occasionally rises to beautiful heights, but the story is ultimately pointless. The remainder of the volume contains 14 shorter verses by a poet (A Short History of the Island of Butterflies ) whose whimsical mix of fantasy and observation reflects an esthetic, distanced approach to life, whether he is observing Bowery bums or a jet-setter., Penguin, 1989, Paper Back . New. Known for their brilliance and jewel -like rich look ,Tanjore paintings have been greatly admired the world over .A fascinating portfolio of six truly beautiful Tanjore paintings, this collection is an ode to this art style of Southern India. 10 Yr. of Pub. 8172343221, Penguin Books. 2008. Paperback. Near Fine. A clean softcover, no markings throughout, NOT an ex-library book: From the author of The Memory of Running-a beautifully crafted story of a m an who returns home to discover the truth about his past Featuring the warmth and authenticity that made The Memory of Running such a major success, Traveler wraps a beautifully written ode to friendship within a compelling mystery. Jono Riley is an aging bartender and part-time actor in Manhattan who is compelled to return to the working-class neighborhoods of East Providence, where he came of age with his three best friends in the early 1960s. Jono is drawn into an attempt to solve the mystery of several shootings that occurred back then. As the surprising truth emerges, Jono is forced to come to terms with a past that is not quite what he remembers, even as he makes new resolutions in the present., Penguin Books, 2008, W. W.

London: John Murray, 1996. Illustrated with a few line drawings by Janina Slater, pp (8), 274, paperback, very slight signs of wear, binding leaning slightly. Postage will be reduced. [This book is for all those who love Kim, that masterpiece of Indian life in which Kipling immortalized the Great Game. Fascinated since childhood by this strange tale of an orphan boy's recruitment into the Indian secret service, Peter Hopkirk here retraces Kim's footsteps across Kipling's India to see how much of it remains. To attempt this with a fictional hero would normally be pointless. But Kim is different. For much of this Great Game classic was inspired by actual people and places, thus blurring the line between the real and the imaginary. Less a travel book than a literary detective story, this is the intriguing story of Peter Hopkirk's quest for Kim and a host of other shadowy figures.]. First Edition. Paperback.

It is also the story of the Houston brothers, Bill and James, young men who drift out of the Arizona desert and into a war where the line between disinformation and delusion has blurred away. In the words of Michiko Kakutani in The New York Times, Tree of Smoke is "bound to become one of the classic works of literature produced by that tragic and uncannily familiar war."720 pages, Picador, 2008, W.

We see "a winter city, night city, streetlights/ blurred in mist" (Prague); "glittering halves of oyster shells"; "first crocuses and the lavender called redbud" blooming on a college campus; even, in one poem called "Pastoral," the "complexities of leaves,/ the umbels, whorls, bracts, and involucres." Plumly remains as much a poet of elegy as he is a poet of nature: odes and memorials to other poets, living and dead, show "how we all change with time but don't." Plumly can seem morbid, or bathetic, as in a sonnet called "When He Fell Backwards into His Coffin," about a corpse found in a bathtub; he can also seem content with mere prettiness, speaking nothing but "Summer's/ language like sunlight on stone, light itself the stone." Yet Plumly has admirers for good reason: few poets have sounded so often so comfortable at once with the recollections and strong emotions involved in autobiography, and with attention to a beautiful natural world.

Mortality hovers over Stanley Plumly's tenth book, lending it a veiled and subtle beauty. Butterflies slip "through more molting lives / than saints --"; elsewhere "spirit birds" fly through "The spirit world the negative of this one; / soft outlines of soft whites against soft darks"; the narrator's own mother lies becalmed on hard white sheets, the narrative of legs, arms, animal centers stilled, some starlight in the mind glittering off and on, couldn't tell me whether or not to leave her The keystone sequence, "Elevens" -- comprising eleven poems, of eleven lines each -- takes us straight into the heart of mortality's dilemma. The poet's own "old heart" reveals itself, "lit up on the screen, / the arteries, veins and ventricles." Plumly centers his poetry inside the embodied world -- air, snow, mountains, trees, grass, animals, insects. His lines have a sinuous and subtle beauty, like smoke. Yet they light up again and again in pure radiance. PoeShipped promptly in a padded envelope or cardboard box., W. W. Norton & Company, 2007-09-17

Yet they light up again and again in pure radiance. Poets speak to one another across time and space in their poetry. In Old Heart, Plumley converses with Pound, Stevens, Eliot, and Keats, and with his contemporaries: Donald Justice, Michael Collier, Henri Cole. As the list suggests, this is a curiously masculine book, like Melville's Ishmael adrift on the sea. It is also wide-rangingly philosophical, understated, modest, and, ultimately, hauntingly exquisite. --Liz Rosenberg From the Publisher In his new collection of poetry, Plumly confronts and celebrates mortality in the natural world, in the immediacy of loss of friends, and in personal encounters.

"Successor to James Wright and John Keats, with a marvelous ear for the music of contemplation."--Rita Dove In his new collection, Stanley Plumly confronts and celebrates mortality--in the detailed natural world, in the immediacy of the loss of friends, and in personal encounters. Archetypal, sometimes even allegorical, the poems in Old Heart amount to a sustained meditation. The American Academy of Arts and Letters declared of Plumly that "he has in the last thirty years quietly, steadily, expanded the range of lyric poetry in English...(and) reinvigorated our poetry." His ethical rigor and literary modesty combine in "Old Heart"--his finest book of poetry.
