Lies Jane Austen Told Me by: Julie Wright

Ever since Emma read Pride and Prejudice, she’s been in love with Mr. Darcy and has regarded Jane Austen as the expert on all things romantic.

So naturally when Emma falls for Blake Hampton and he invites her home to meet his parents, she is positive an engagement is in her future. After all, Blake is a single man in possession of a good fortune, and thus must be in want of a wife.



But when it turns out that what Blake actually wants is more of a hook-up than a honeymoon, Emma is hurt, betrayed, and furious. She throws herself deeper into her work as CMO of Kinetics, the fastest growing gym franchise in the nation. She loves her work, and she’s good at it, which is why she bristles when her boss brings in a consultant to help her spearhead the new facilities on the East Coast. Her frustration turns to shock when that consultant turns out to be Blake’s younger brother, Lucas.

Emma is determined not to fall for Lucas, but as she gets to know him, she realizes that Lucas is nothing like his brother. He is kind and attentive and spends his time and money caring for the less fortunate.



What she can’t understand is why Lucas continues to try to push her back into Blake’s arms when he so clearly has fallen as hard for her as she has fallen for him. It isn’t until Lucas reveals to Emma that he was adopted into the Hampton family that she begins to understand his loyalty to Blake as well as his devotion to the child April-she is Lucas’s biological niece.



Emma opens up to Lucas about the feelings of abandonment she has harbored ever since she was a child and her mother left the family. As she helps Lucas deal with his past demons, she is able to exorcise some of her own.

Realizing that her love life is as complicated as anything Jane Austen could have dreamed up, Emma must find a way to let Blake know that it’s time for him to let her go and to let Lucas know it’s time for him to love her back.

Julie Wright wrote her first book when she was fifteen, and has since written twenty-three novels. She has a husband, three kids, a dog, and a varying amount of fish, frogs, and salamanders (depending on attrition). She loves writing, reading, traveling, speaking at schools, hiking, playing with her kids, and watching her husband make dinner.

Masha Gessen: The Future is History = winner of the 2017 National Book Award for Nonfiction

The visionary journalist and bestselling biographer of Vladimir Putin reveals how, in the space of a generation, Russia surrendered to a more virulent and invincible new strain of autocracy.

Hailed for her “fearless indictment of the most powerful man in Russia” (The Wall Street Journal), award-winning journalist Masha Gessen is unparalleled in her understanding of the events and forces that have wracked her native country in recent times.

In The Future Is History, she follows the lives of four people born at what promised to be the dawn of democracy. Each of them came of age with unprecedented expectations, some as the children and grandchildren of the very architects of the new Russia, each with newfound aspirations of their own—as entrepreneurs, activists, thinkers, and writers, sexual and social beings.

Gessen charts their paths against the machinations of the regime that would crush them all, and against the war it waged on understanding itself, which ensured the unobstructed reemergence of the old Soviet order in the form of today’s terrifying and seemingly unstoppable mafia state. Powerful and urgent, The Future Is History is a cautionary tale for our time and for all time.

Masha Gessen’s previous books include The Brothers: The Road to an American Tragedy and the national best seller The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin. She has immigrated to the United States twice—once, as a teenager, from the Soviet Union and again, more than thirty years later, from Putin’s Russia. She lives in New York City.

Gabriële by Anne & Claire Berest: The saga of a surrealist muse, from Montmartre to New York

A “Jules et Jim” style love story set against the background of the Surrealist revolution.

September 1908. 27-year-old Gabriële Buffet – a musician, an free-spirited young woman and a feminist before her time – meets Francis Picabia, a successful young painter with a scandalous reputation.

He needed his art to head in a new direction, she is prepared to break with convention: to inspire, theorise and be thought-provoking. She becomes the “woman with the erotic brain” who has men on their knees, including Marcel Duchamp and Guillaume Apollinaire. Moving from Paris to New York, Berlin, Zurich, Barcelona, Étival and Saint-Tropez, Gabriële guides the precursors of abstract art, the futurists, the Dadaists, always at the cutting edge of artistic innovation. This book transports us to the beginning of the Twentieth Century when the codes of beauty and society were reinvented.

Collaborating intimately in both content and writing, Anne et Claire Berest tell the story of their great-grandmother, Gabriële Picabia, the surrealists’ muse.

Frank Behrendt: Die Winnetou-Strategie Werde zum Häuptling deines Lebens

“Führe dich selbst in eine gute Zukunft. Wie ein guter Häuptling seinen Stamm.” (Frank Behrendt)

Frank Behrendt ist seit seiner Jugend leidenschaftlicher Winnetou-Fan – der »Guru der Gelassenheit« hat sich in vielen Lebenslagen von dem stolzen Apachen-Häuptling und anderen Figuren des Schriftstellers Karl May inspirieren lassen.

Auch von anderen Persönlichkeiten im echten Leben hat Frank Behrendt viel gelernt. Ihre Haltung, Klugheit und Weisheit hat er übernommen und für seinen eigenen Weg erfolgreich adaptiert. Selbstbestimmt und selbst-entschieden zu leben, tatsächlich Häuptling des eigenen Lebens zu sein, war immer sein Ziel.

In unterhaltsamen Geschichten erzählt Frank Behrendt an konkreten Beispielen, wie ihn die Helden seiner Kindheit nachhaltig beeinflusst haben. Eine Inspiration für jeden und ein flammender Appell an alle, Ausschau zu halten nach den Helden am Wegesrand – den fiktionalen und den realen.

Frank Behrendt, geb. 1963, ist seit gut 20 Jahren ausgewiesener PR- und Kommunikationsfachmann mit intensiven Kontakten zu Medien, Wirtschaft und Politik. Nach Stationen bei BILD, Dornier, Henkel, RTL Television und Universal Music war der Absolvent der Deutschen Journalistenschule in München Deutschland-Chef bei KetchumPleon, bevor er 2011 als Vorstand zur fischerAppelt AG wechselte. Seit Februar 2017 ist er in der Serviceplan-Gruppe tätig. Im März 2017 wurde er von der Deutschen Public Relations Gesellschaft (DPRG) als “PR-Kopf des Jahres” ausgezeichnet. Frank Behrendt lebt mit seiner Frau und seinen drei Kindern in Köln.

Staging Beckett in Great Britain & Ireland by David Tucker and Trish McTighe

Beckett’s relationship with British theatre is complex and underexplored, yet his impact has been immense. Uniquely placing performance history at the centre of its analysis, this volume examines Samuel Beckett’s drama as it has been staged in Great Britain, bringing to light a wide range of untold histories and in turn illuminating six decades of drama in Britain.

Staging Samuel Beckett in Great Britain by Trish McTighe and David Tucker

Ranging from studies of the first English tour of Waiting for Godot in 1955 to Talawa’s 2012 all-black co-production of the same play, Staging Samuel Beckett in Great Britain excavates a host of archival resources in order to historicize how Beckett’s drama has interacted with specific theatres, directors and theatre cultures in the UK. It traces production histories of plays such as Krapp’s Last Tape; presents Beckett’s working relationships with the Royal Court, Riverside and West Yorkshire Playhouse, as well as with directors such as Peter Hall; looks at the history of Beckett’s drama in Scotland and how the plays have been staged in London’s West End. Production analyses are mapped onto political, economic and cultural contexts of Great Britain so that Beckett’s drama resonates in new ways, through theatre practice, against the complex contexts of Great Britain’s regions.

With contributions from experts in the fields of both Beckett studies and UK drama, including S.E. Gontarski, David Pattie, Mark Taylor-Batty and Sos Eltis, the volume offers an exceptional and unique understanding of Beckett’s reception on the UK stage and the impact of his drama within UK theatre practices. Together with its sister volume, Staging Samuel Beckett in Ireland and Northern Ireland it will prove a terrific resource for students, scholars and theatre practitioners.

Staging Beckett in Ireland and Northern Ireland by Trish McTighe and David Tucker

This is the first full-length study to focus on Samuel Beckett’s drama as it has been staged in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

While Beckett’s relationship with his native land was a complex one, the importance of his drama as a creative force both historically and in contemporary practice in those regions cannot be underestimated. The volume brings to light unexamined and little-known productions, for example Beckett’s drama in the Irish language, Druid Theatre Company’s productions, and Beckett at Dublin’s Focus Theatre, as well as previously unpublished archival materials. Leading scholars, such as Anna McMullan and Anthony Roche, and renowned dramatic interpreters of Beckett’s work, such as Barry McGovern, explore Beckett’s drama within the context of Irish creative theatrical practice and heritage, and point towards the theatrical and performance legacies that follow in its wake.

Production analyses are mapped on to the political, economic and cultural contexts of Ireland and the North so that readers are invited to experience Beckett’s drama as resonating in new ways, through theatre practice, against the complex and connected histories of these lands.

David Tucker is a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Sussex and currently teaches at the University of Oxford, UK. He is the editor of British Social Realism in the Arts since 1940 (Palgrave, 2011).

Trish McTighe is Lecturer in Theatre at the University of Birmingham. Previously, she lectured at Queen’s University, Belfast and was an AHRC post-doctoral researcher on the Staging Beckett Project at the University of Reading (2012-2015).

Ficciones by Jorge Luis Borges

Jorge Luis Borges was one of those very rare creators who changed the face of an art form—in his case, the short story. His work has been paid the ultimate honor of being appropriated and imitated by innumerable writers on every continent of the world.

The seventeen brief masterpieces of FICCIONES explode the boundaries of genre, offering up labyrinthine libraries, a fictional encyclopedia entry that spawns an entire world, a review of a nonexistent writer’s attempt to re-create Don Quixote word for word, a man with the disabling inability to forget anything he has ever experienced, and other metaphysical puzzles.

But the true measure of Borges’s greatness lies in the fact that his fictions—elaborately paradoxical, postmodern, and intellectually delicious as they are—managed to return the short story to the realm of the fabulous and the uncanny from which, as parable and fairy tale, it originally came.

Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986) was an Argentine poet, essayist, and author of short stories. His most notable works as a key literary Spanish-language figure of the twentieth century include Ficciones (Fictions) and El Aleph (The Aleph). He received a BA from the College of Geneva. He was also appointed the director of the National Public Library and professor of English literature at the University of Buenos Aries in 1955. During his lifetime, Borges received the first Prix International Formentor Prize which he shared alongside Samuel Beckett in 1961. He also received the Jerusalem Prize for the Freedom of the Individual in Society in 1971.

Clovis Goux: La Disparition de Karen Carpenter

Durant les années 1970, The Carpenters est le groupe le plus populaire aux États-Unis.

Un immense succès (100 millions de disques vendus) qui s’explique par l’alchimie unique entre ses deux membres fondateurs, Richard et Karen Carpenter, un frère et une sœur. Ces deux enfants de la classe moyenne imposent un retour à l’ordre musical après la révolution psychédélique, avec des hits aussi romantiques que réactionnaires, tels Close to you, We’ve Only Just Begun ou Rainy Days and Mondays. Mais derrière cette success story se cache une tragédie.

La Disparition de Karen Carpenter raconte cette histoire, nous amenant à porter un regard de côté sur les grands phénomènes socio-culturels qui marquèrent l’Amérique de l’époque.

Clovis Goux est journaliste indépendant et cofondateur du label Dirty.

Frank Bidart: Half-light. Collected Poems 1965-2016 # Wins 2017 National Book Award

Gathered together, the poems of Frank Bidart perform one of the most remarkable transmutations of the body into language in contemporary literature.

His pages represent the human voice in all its extreme registers, whether it’s that of the child murderer Herbert White, the obsessive anorexic Ellen West, the tormented genius Vaslav Nijinsky, or the poet’s own. And in that embodiment is a transgressive empathy, one that recognizes our wild appetites, the monsters, the misfits, the misunderstood among us, and inside of us.

Few writers have so willingly ventured to the dark places of the human psyche, and allowed themselves to be stripped bare on the page with such candor and vulnerability. Over the past half century, Bidart has done nothing less than invent a poetics commensurate with the chaos and hunger of our experience.

Frank Bidart is the author of Metaphysical Dog, Watching the Spring Festival, Star Dust, Desire, and In the Western Night: Collected Poems 1965-90. He has won many prizes, including the Wallace Stevens Award, the 2007 Bollingen Prize for American Poetry, and the National Book Critics Circle Award. He teaches at Wellesley College and lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Oliver Sacks: On The Move. A Life

When Oliver Sacks was twelve years old, a perceptive schoolmaster wrote in his report: “Sacks will go far, if he does not go too far.”

It is now abundantly clear that Sacks has never stopped going. From its opening pages on his youthful obsession with motorcycles and speed, On the Move is infused with his restless energy.

As he recounts his experiences as a young neurologist in the early 1960s, first in California, where he struggled with drug addiction, and then in New York, where he discovered a long-forgotten illness in the back wards of a chronic hospital, we see how his engagement with patients comes to define his life.

With unbridled honesty and humor, Sacks shows us that the same energy that drives his physical passions—weight lifting and swimming—also drives his cerebral passions.

He writes about his love affairs, both romantic and intellectual; his guilt over leaving his family to come to America; his bond with his schizophrenic brother; and the writers and scientists—Thom Gunn, A. R. Luria, W. H. Auden, Gerald M. Edelman, Francis Crick—who influenced him.

On the Move is the story of a brilliantly unconventional physician and writer—and of the man who has illuminated the many ways that the brain makes us human.

Mario Vargas Llosa: Voor uw liefde

De nieuwe roman van grootmeester Mario Vargas Llosa, de Nobelprijswinnaar op zijn best

Spanning, humor en erotiek strijden om voorrang in dit weergaloze verhaal over de Peruviaanse bovenklasse

Enrique Cárdenas, een rijke zakenman, wordt door de befaamde redacteur van een boulevardblad ­af­geperst. Als hij diens eisen niet inwilligt worden er foto’s gepubliceerd van Cárdenas die zich tijdens een orgie verlustigt aan prostituees en drugs. Dit schandaal zou zijn ondergang betekenen.

Cárdenas’ situatie wordt nog nijpender als hij wordt beschuldigd van een moord die gepleegd werd in Cinco Esquinas, een van de armste wijken van Lima. In heel Peru is er slechts een vrouw die de echte dader kan vinden: een cynische journaliste met twijfelachtige moraal, die haar carrière heeft gewijd aan het verwoesten van de reputaties van de tegenstanders van Fujimori’s regering. Nu krijgt ze de kans om haar vak eer aan te doen door de waarheid aan het licht te brengen.

Deze nieuwe, spannende roman van Mario Vargas Llosa schildert een levendig portret van de Peruviaanse samenleving tijdens de jaren van de Fujimori-dictatuur en schetst een ontluisterend beeld van de dubbele moraal van de journalistiek. Verluchtigd met een vleugje humor en erotiek leest Voor uw liefde als een ware pageturner.

‘Alles is meesterlijk in deze roman. De ervaren Vargas Llosa blaast ons wederom omver met zijn venijnige ­wijsheid en zijn onuitputtelijke creativiteit.’ El País

Mario Vargas Llosa (Peru, 1936) is een van de belangrijkste Zuid-Amerikaanse schrijvers van deze tijd. Zijn romans staan bekend om hun politieke en gewelddadige sfeer en hun aandacht voor het morele verval van de maatschappij. Via kranten mengt Vargas Llosa zich geregeld in het maatschappelijk debat en in 1987 was hij kandidaat voor het presidentschap in Peru. In 2010 werd Mario Vargas Llosa bekroond met de Nobelprijs voor de Literatuur.
