Description : In his first book devoted exclusively to narrative fiction, America's most original and controversial literary critic and legendary Yale professor writes trenchantly about fifty-two masterworks spanning the Western tradition. Perhaps no other literary critic but Harold Bloom could--or would--undertake a project of this immensity. And certainly no other critic could bring to it the extraordinary knowledge, understanding, and insight that are the hallmark of Bloom's every book. Ranging across centuries and continents, this final book of his career, gives us the inimitable critic on Don Quixote and Book of Numbers; Wuthering Heights and Absalom, Absalom; Les Miserables and Blood Meridian; Vanity Fair and Invisible Man; The Captain's Daughter and The Reef. He writes about works by Austen, Balzac, Dickens, Tolstoy, James, Conrad, Lawrence, Wolff, Le Guin, Sebald, and many more. Whether you have already read these books, or intend to, or simply care about the importance and power of fiction, Harold Bloom serves as an unparalleled guide through the pages of these 52 masterpieces of the genre.

Description : The #1 New York Times bestselling series finale--sequel to A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night, that sets up Time's Convert. Look for the hit TV series “A Discovery of Witches” airing Sundays on AMC and BBC America, and streaming on Sundance Now and Shudder. After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness’s enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew’s ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches—with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency. In the trilogy’s final volume, Harkness deepens her themes of power and passion, family and caring, past deeds and their present consequences. In ancestral homes and university laboratories, using ancient knowledge and modern science, from the hills of the Auvergne to the palaces of Venice and beyond, the couple at last learn what the witches discovered so many centuries ago. With more than one million copies sold in the United States and appearing in thirty-eight foreign editions, A Discovery of Witches and Shadow of Night have landed on all of the major bestseller lists and garnered rave reviews from countless publications. Eagerly awaited by Harkness’s legion of fans, The Book of Life brings this superbly written series to a deeply satisfying close.

Description : A brilliantly varied new selection of D. H. Lawrence's essays, chosen and introduced by Geoff Dyer For D. H. Lawrence the novel was the pinnacle, 'the one bright book of life', yet his non-fiction shows him at his most freewheeling and playful. This is a selection of his essays, on subjects including art, morality, obscenity, songbirds, Italy, Thomas Hardy, the death of a porcupine in the Rocky Mountains and the narcissism of photographing ourselves. Arranged chronologically to illuminate the patterns of Lawrence's thought over time, and including many little-known pieces, they reveal a writer of enduring freshness and force. 'The greatest writer of this century, and in many things the greatest writer of all times' Philip Larkin

Description : NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER From the ingenious comic performer, founding member of Monty Python, and creator of Spamalot, comes an absurdly funny memoir of unparalleled wit and heartfelt candor We know him best for his unforgettable roles on Monty Python—from the Flying Circus to The Meaning of Life. Now, Eric Idle reflects on the meaning of his own life in this entertaining memoir that takes us on a remarkable journey from his childhood in an austere boarding school through his successful career in comedy, television, theater, and film. Coming of age as a writer and comedian during the Sixties and Seventies, Eric stumbled into the crossroads of the cultural revolution and found himself rubbing shoulders with the likes of George Harrison, David Bowie, and Robin Williams, all of whom became dear lifelong friends. With anecdotes sprinkled throughout involving other close friends and luminaries such as Mike Nichols, Mick Jagger, Steve Martin, Paul Simon, Lorne Michaels, and many more, as well as John Cleese and the Pythons themselves, Eric captures a time of tremendous creative output with equal parts hilarity and heart. In Always Look on the Bright Side of Life, named for the song he wrote for Life of Brian and which has since become the number one song played at funerals in the UK, he shares the highlights of his life and career with the kind of offbeat humor that has delighted audiences for five decades. The year 2019 marks the fiftieth anniversary of The Pythons, and Eric is marking the occasion with this hilarious memoir chock full of behind-the-scenes stories from a high-flying life featuring everyone from Princess Leia to Queen Elizabeth.

They show moments of grief and betrayal as well as humour and happiness. They show us the best of people and the worst. They show us life. Stuart Nadler is a writer in the great American tradition, but one who emerges from the shadows – of Updike, of Bellow, of Cheever – and stakes his own bold and exciting claim.

Description : About “the Book of Life” This book is not a fast, quick novel of spooks and Ghosts which to so many is just weird, but a book to pick up and contemplate on what we call “Spirit” and to help you on the Path of Awareness; where you have been, where you are going now and where and who you will be in the future on this world and the next. I wrote this work originally because when I became President of a Spiritualist Church in 1987 I found that many people come to me for so many reasons. Perhaps they had gone through a traumatic time with a loved one and couldn’t understand why God allowed this to happen or perhaps they had lost someone through accident, suicide or childbirth. We all have so many reasons to doubt and wonder what possesses the God that we have been brought up to revere and who supposedly loves us so much could be so cruel in so many ways. I also found that there were many people “out there” who had always felt there was something missing in their lives but couldn’t explain the feeling they had unless in a conversation about “Why are we on this earth?” or “Why should these things happen to me?” “Is there really life after death as we have been told?” and not even remotely come up with an answer other than we must have faith. The other reason I started to write this book was because I found so many young would-be mediums were sitting in circle learning to get someone “through” from Spirit with little or no instruction about the earthly or spiritual aspect other than a prayer to open and close the circle: certainly not any instruction on the physical, mental, scientific, philosophical or theosophical side, although, believe it or not, we all use these subjects all the time in our every day lives without even realising it and in the end, they are what makes us all what we are. Over the years I have found that so many people from so many different backgrounds were also eager to know more about so much unexplained phenomena that had occured in their lives, moreover, about life after death, but they were at a loss to know whom to ask and didn’t want to go to a Spiritualist church. Many of them who did not want to become mediums or even get too involved in this particular subject. This being so, I realised I had to adjust what I had already written so that it included those who had no one to question or debate with. Like others I have searched for many years, asking questions, reading anything I could get hold of for and against the subject of Spirits, Ghosts and things that go bump in the night. Listening to Spirit and even being extremely fortunate in that I am spiritually psychic I am still not professing to know all the answers. In fact, although I have learnt a lot through my own amazing experiences which I have written about and from Spirit’s automatic teachings and writings I realise how very little I do know on the grand scale of things. Over the past thirty years Spirit also kept telling me I had to write a book to explain to people how we had to stop for a moment and find out about our inner selves so that we could understand why we are here and then, and how only then, will we be able to live as we all want, contentedly on this earth and as part of it. They have tried so many times to tell us just how important it is for us to learn and in learning understand, but the average person still does not realise just how important it is to us. We think so little about the real person that is inside each one of us and I have tried to make the reader aware of themselves. I have tried not to sound religious because this is not a religion but a very important assessment of finding out who and what each of us is. It can, to each of us, individually and sensibly, alter our way of life just by thinking over what I have written. After all, what do we really know about life after death, or even everyday spiritual matters let alone serious Spiritualism? We all say we do, or we do not, believe about this or

Description : Award-winning novelist Samuel R. Delany has written a book for creative writers to place alongside E. M. Forster’s Aspects of the Novel and Lajos Egri’s Art of Dramatic Writing. Taking up specifics (When do flashbacks work, and when should you avoid them? How do you make characters both vivid and sympathetic?) and generalities (How are novels structured? How do writers establish serious literary reputations today?), Delany also examines the condition of the contemporary creative writer and how it differs from that of the writer in the years of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and the high Modernists. Like a private writing tutorial, About Writing treats each topic with clarity and insight. Here is an indispensable companion for serious writers everywhere.

Description : John Paul Heil presents an original analysis of the theme of worship in the book of Revelation guided by a new illustration of its comprehensive chiastic structure. The worship that Revelation exhorts and enables is in the divine Spirit of prophetic witness against all forms of idolatrous worship on earth in favor of a true, heavenly, and universal worship of the Lord God and the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lamb, for an eternal and heavenly life. The audience begins this worship in the eucharistic supper into which Revelation leads them by inviting them to respond to the promise of Jesus, Yes, I am coming soon, with Amen! Come, Lord Jesus! They thereby affirm and welcome the coming of the Lord Jesus, the exalted sacrificial Lamb, to the eucharistic supper that anticipates his final coming and the divine grace, the gift of eternal life, of the Lord Jesus that is intended to be the destiny of all--The grace of the Lord Jesus with all!
