Chism Talbert had loved her first, and best -- but he had broken her heart. He was the caretaker's handsome son.
She was Minta Westerly, the privileged girl who'd surrendered to him one starry summer night -- then been abandoned when he abruptly left town. Now she was back in the big house where she'd spent family vacations -- and suddenly, impossibly, Chism walked through the door, pinning her with mesmerizing eyes that burned with fury and desire. Both were haunted by the dreams they'd woven together, the promises they'd whispered under a willow tree -- and both were devastated by a misunderstanding that still felt like a betrayal. But the years apart and the pain they had denied only fed the fires of passion that sizzled within. Minta longed to taste the magic of Chism's lips once more, even if he insisted that time had made them strangers. Could she make him see she belonged in his world, and that he would have a home in her heart forever?

Call Me Tom is the first book-length biography of one of Missouri’s most successful senators. A moderate liberal in a conservative state, Thomas F. Eagleton was known for his political independence, integrity, and intelligence, likely the reasons Eagleton never once lost an election in his thirty years of public service. Born in St. Louis, Eagleton began his public career in 1956 as St.
Louis Circuit Attorney. At 27, he was the youngest person in the history of the state to hold that position, and he duplicated the feat in his next two elected positions, attorney general in 1960 and lieutenant governor in 1964. In 1968, he was elected to the U.S. Senate, where he served until 1987. He was thrown into the national spotlight in 1972 when revelations regarding his mental health, particularly the shock treatments he received for depression, forced his resignation as a vice presidential nominee of the Democratic Party. All of that would overshadow his significant contributions as senator, especially on environmental and social legislation, as well as his defense of Congressional authority on war making and his role in the U.
S. military disengagement from Southeast Asia in 1973. Respected biographer James N. Giglio provides readers with an encompassing and nuanced portrait of Eagleton by placing the man and his career in the context of his times. Giglio allows readers to see his rumpled suits, smell the smoke of his Pall Mall cigarettes, hear his gravelly voice, and relish his sense of humor. At the same time, Giglio does not shy away from the personal torments that Eagleton had to overcome. A definitive examination of the senator’s career also reveals his unique ability to work with Republican counterparts, especially prior to the 1980s when bipartisanship was more possible. Measuring the effect his mental illness had on his career, Giglio determines that the removal of aspirations for higher office in 1972 made Eagleton a better senator. He consistently took principled stands, with the ultimate goal of preserving and modernizing the agenda of Franklin D. Roosevelt, his favorite president. Thoroughly researched using the Eagleton Papers and interviews with more than eighty-five people close to Eagleton, including family, friends, colleagues, subordinates, and former classmates, Call Me Tom offers an engaging and in-depth portrayal of a man who remained a devoted public servant throughout his life.
Mała stara wieś, pośrodku wielkiego „nigdzie”. Tu życie płynie swoim rytmem. Pradawnym zwyczajom akompaniują niewyraźne echa dalekiego świata, docierające zza Zamczyska, rzeki Białej i Pustyni Błędowskiej.
W jednej z chałup, na rozrogu porośniętym lipami, mieszkają dziadek i babka. Gospodyni sprawia wrażenie nieobecnej, chłop z każdym dniem wydaje się starszy — coraz częściej zaczyna szeptać do siebie niezrozumiałe, na wpół urwane zdania. Błądzi pustym wzrokiem i miewa napady obłędu. Gdzieś znika. Niekiedy na długie godziny. We wsi mówi się, że chodzi na Podkrzywdzie. Wraz z nimi mieszka wnuk. Obserwuje codzienne rytuały, poznaje sekrety i fascynujące opowieści mieszkańców. Szybko orientuje się, że również jego rodzina ma swoją wielką tajemnicę… Kim lub czym jest nieokreślone „ono”, którego imię na wpół świadomie przywołuje dziadek? Z opowieści chłopca, snutej w połowie mieszkańców, a w połowie jego słowami, z zasłyszanych i dojrzanych elementów wyłania się świat, w którym to, co przyziemne i realistyczne, łączy się z symbolicznym i niedookreślonym. Świat, którego oddanie wymaga osobnego języka. Świat, w którym to, co tamtejsze, okazuje się uniwersalne i aktualne. Pachnąca lasem, paląca w gardło bimbrem i jęcząca głosem zarzynanych kaczek. Hipnotyzująca, sensualna opowieść, w której można zanurzyć się wszystkimi zmysłami.
“Sick City is fun, twisted and brutal….O’Neill could be our generation’s Jim Thompson.” — James Frey, author of Bright Shiny Morning “Tony O’Neill works his L.A. people the way Dutch Leonard had his hand down the pants of every degenerate in his great Detroit novels.” — Barry Gifford, author of Wild at Heart From Tony O’Neill, the author of Down and Out on Murder Mile and coauthor of the Neon Angel and the New York Times bestselling Hero of the Underground, comes Sick City—a wild adventure of two junkies, Hollywood, and the Sharon Tate sex tape. Readers of Elmore Leonard (Get Shorty) and Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) will take great delight in Sick City, “a disturbingly twisted ride through Hollywood’s underbelly with a degenerate cast of colorfully interwoven characters” (Slash).
Italy The Places In Between by Kate Simon is not a tourist guide to the major cities of Italy like Milan, Venice, Florence, Naples, and Rome; it's a valuable and elegant source to the historical, topographical, architectural, and cultural riches of Italy beyond those big cities. In this reissue of her 1984 classic, Kate Simon reveals the special charm of places like the Umbrian hill towns, the enchantments of the Etruscan tomb paintings of Tarquinia, and the watery grace of Treviso. Incomparably well-written, Italy The Places In Between will captivate both the novice and the seasoned traveler and most likely become an excellent travel companion.
