  • Hangover Square

    • Author: Patrick Hamilton
    • Binding: Paperback
    • Price: $14.95

    <p>"Hamilton . . . is a sort of urban Thomas Hardy: . . . always a pleasure to read, and as social historian he is unparalleled."-Nick Hornby</p> <p>"A much better writer than Auden, Isherwood . . . and his novels are still true now. You can go into any pub today and see it going on."-Doris Lessing, <i>The Times</i></p> <p>Adrift in the grimy pubs of London at the outbreak of World War II, George Bone is hopelessly infatuated with Netta, a contemptuous, small-time actress. George suffers from occasional blackouts, during which one thing is horribly clear: he must murder Netta.</p> <p><b>Patrick Hamilton</b> enjoyed worldwide popularity during the 1930s. His play <i>Rope</i> was made into a film by Alfred Hitchcock, and another, <i>Gaslight</i>, was a great success on the stage before being made into a film starring Ingrid Bergman.</p>

  • After the New Economy: The Binge and the Hangover That Won't Go Away

    • Author: Doug Henwood
    • Binding: Paperback
    • Price: $16.95

    <B> Journalist Doug Henwood's withering postmortem of the New Economy.</B> <P>Rarely a day went by in the dizzy 1990s without some well-paid pundit heralding the triumphant arrival of a "New Economy." According to these financial mavens, an unprecedented technological and organizational revolution had extinguished the threat of recession forever. Though much of the rhetoric sounds ridiculous today, few analysts have explored how the New Economy moment emerged from deep within America's economic and ideological machinery&#151;instead, they've preferred to treat it as an episode of mass delusion. <P>Now, with customary irreverence and acuity, journalist Doug Henwood dissects the New Economy, arguing that the delirious optimism was actually a manic set of variations on ancient themes, all promoted from the highest of places. Claims of New Eras have plenty of historical precedents; in this latest act, our modern mythmakers held that technology would overturn hierarchies, democratizing information and finance and leading inexorably to a virtual social revolution. But, as Henwood vividly demonstrates, the gap between rich and poor has never been so wide, wealth never so concentrated. <I>After the New Economy</I> offers an accessible and entertaining account of the less-than-lustrous reality beneath the gloss of the 1990s boom.

  • Hayford Hall: Hangovers, Erotics, And Modernist Aesthetics

    • Author:
    • Binding: Hardcover
    • Price: $50.00

    In this innovative approach to modernist British and American women&#146;s literature, essayists focus on Hayford Hall, a remote country estate in Devonshire, England, rented by Peggy Guggenheim and inhabited by a coterie of literary friends in the summers of 1932 and 1933. As a critical treatment of the living and writing that unfolded at the estate, Hayford Hall: Hangovers, Erotics, and Modernist Aesthetics asserts that female modernists who gathered there integrated public art with their private lives, thus making their personal writing works of experimental aesthetics. Central to the literary discussions, the drinking, and the erotic play that filled the evenings at Hayford Hall were John Holms, Guggenheim&#146;s British lover; Djuna Barnes, who wrote her masterpiece Nightwood at the estate; Antonia White, British author best known for her convent novel Frost in May; and Emily Coleman, whose novel The Shutter of Snow was based on her own experiences of madness and institutionalization. <P>Drawing on archival materials to bring crucial sources to a wider audience, the essays, contributed by scholars from Britain, Germany, Canada, and the United States, each add a different perspective on the writers and suggest the notion that a specifically female kind of lived modernism started to emerge at Hayford Hall. They argue that the writers challenged the sexual, textual, and spiritual mores of the day, both in life and on the page. Until this time, Hayford Hall has all but been ignored by scholars interested in the literary history of modernism. This provocative collection offers a valuable addition to our understanding of one intellectual and artistic incubator of modernism.

  • Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy : The Harvard Medical School Guide to Healthy Eating

    • Author: M.D., Walter Willett, P.J. Skerrett
    • Binding: Paperback
    • Price: $15.00

    Aimed at nothing less than totally restructuring the diets of Americans, Eat, Drink, and Be Healthy may well accomplish its goal. Dr. Walter C. Willett gets off to a roaring start by totally dismantling one of the largest icons in health today: the USDA Food Pyramid that we all learn in elementary school. He blames many of the pyramid's recommendations--6 to 11 servings of carbohydrates, all fats used sparingly--for much of the current wave of obesity. At first this may read differently than any diet book, but Willett also makes a crucial, rarely mentioned point about this icon: "The thing to keep in mind about the USDA Pyramid is that it comes from the Department of Agriculture, the agency responsible for promoting American agriculture, not from the agencies established to monitor and protect our health." It's no wonder that dairy products and American-grown grains such as wheat and corn figure so prominently in the USDA's recommendations.

    Willett's own simple pyramid has several benefits over the traditional format. His information is up-to-date, and you won't find recommendations that come from special-interest groups. His ideas are nothing radical--if we eat more vegetables and complex carbohydrates (no, potatoes are not complex), emphasize healthy fats, and enjoy small amounts of a tremendous variety of food, we will be healthier. You'll find some surprises as well, such as doubts about the overall benefits of soy (unless you're willing to eat a pound and a half of tofu a day), and that nuts, with their "good" fat content, are a terrific snack. Relying on research rather than anecdotes, this is a solidly written nutritional guide that will show you the real story behind how food is digested, from the glycemic index for carbs to the wisdom of adding a multivitamin to your diet. Willett combines research with matter-of-fact language and a no-nonsense tone that turns academic studies into easily understandable suggestions for living. --Jill Lightner Book Description

  • Eat, Drink, & Weigh Less : A Flexible and Delicious Way to Shrink Your Waist Without Going Hungry

    • Author: Mollie Katzen, Walter Willett
    • Binding: Hardcover
    • Price: $23.95

    From the dream team of Dr. Walter C. Willett, bestselling author of Eat, Drink and Be Healthy, and Mollie Katzen, author of the four million-copy bestselling Moosewood Cookbook, comes a new approach to weight loss

    Eat, Drink, and Weigh Less offers a medically sound, extremely effective program that shows people how they can lose weight by adding delicious food to their diet and making simple changes in what they eat throughout the day. ItÂ?s flexible and adaptable -- and it really works. It features a powerful way to chart your progress called the Body Score. The more you raise your Body Score, the more you will lower your weight! A quiz at the beginning of the book helps readers determine their Body Score; the chapters that follow explain easy dietary and behavioral steps readers can take to improve their scores.

    While the concept is simple, the science behind it is not. It represents years of top research conducted by Dr. Walter C. Willett, the head of Harvard School of Public HealthÂ?s Department of Nutrition, including the famous NursesÂ? Health Study. This study scored each of its over 84,000 participants on food choices, exercise schedule, and body mass -- resulting in a number that accurately determined the nursesÂ? risk of heart disease.

    Now, for the first time, Dr. Willett has teamed up with mega-bestselling cookbook author Mollie Katzen to adapt a similar, much easier scoring system to create a user-friendly diet plan with fail-safe results. If you can raise your score, you will lower your weight -- all while eating delicious, easy-to-prepare foods. Very helpfull for people who are looking for bartending or restaurant jobs.
