Hardcover

From Publishers Weekly
Peppering their volume of straightforward recipes with amusing stories and photographs of the goings-on at both their eponymous restaurant in the Caribbean and their life in Vermont ("we commute"), the Blanchards present a down-to-earth, personal cookbook that makes a nice follow up to A Trip to the Beach, which chronicled their experiences opening Blanchard's Restaurant on the tiny island of Anguilla. The recipes here, which represent no particular cuisine, are simple, homemade dishes from self-taught chef Blanchard and her staff at the restaurant, and will delight hungry palates and cooks who are interested in straightforward but pleasing recipes for friends and family alike. Half of the cookbook is devoted to colorful, casual starters and soups, and tasty salads and dressings with a zesty twist. Starters such...


The Boy Who Loved to Draw

From Publishers Weekly
This innovative picture book/chapter book hybrid vividly brings to life the childhood of noted American painter Benjamin West (1738-1820). The youngest of 10 children in a Quaker family, Benjamin becomes inspired at the age of seven and draws pictures every chance he gets. When quill and paper aren't enough, a Native American friend shows young Benjamin how to mix clay and bear grease into paint colors, and Benjamin learns-by trial and error, using hair from his pet cat-how to make simple paintbrushes. Brenner (If You Were There in 1776) distills West's formative years into a lively narrative. She makes Benjamin easy to like, giving equal emphasis to his singular passion for art and to the qualities he has in common with readers (e.g., a knack for getting into trouble, then fearing the consequences). Dunrea's...

From Publishers Weekly
For the seventh novel to feature gay, HIV-positive reporter Benjamin Justice (after 2004's Moth and Flame), Edgar-winner Wilson moves Justice out of his usual milieu of West Hollywood, whose sexual politics past books in the series have explored in depth, to a crumbling resort hotel on the edges of the high California desert. Justice accepts an offer from Alexandra Templeton, a reporter friend, to spend a weekend at the Haunted Springs Hotel—site of the rape and murder of movie star Rebecca Fox 50 years before, the lynching (the last one ever in California) of the black handyman charged with the crime and the suicide of Fox's daughter in the same hotel room 25 years later. These tragedies are linked to a present-day murder and the danger Justice and Templeton soon find themselves in. The fresh setting does...

Plato's musings on how society should function, as well as the nature of the people who inhabit society, is read by Bruce Alexander in this abridgment. The recording and Alexander's performance are flawless. A veteran Shakespearean actor, Alexander has a voice that is rich and versatile in portraying each of the speakers in this dialogue. His accent also has an air of authority. He makes one suppose that the ancient Greek philosophers went to Oxford. This work is really delightful to hear as one follows the course of Socrates' arguments and the questions thrown at him by the Athenians. The packaging is sturdy, and the enclosed outline is most helpful. Music at the beginning and end of each side does not distract from the performance. A wonderful introduction to Plato.

Benjamin West

Book Description
Benjamin West (1738-1820) occupies a significant place in both American and British art histories. Born in Springfield Township (now Swarthmore), Pennsylvania, he was sent to study in Europe, opened a studio in London in 1763, and was appointed historical painter to King George III in 1772. This publication focuses on paintings by West which took their inspiration from The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser. Derrick Cartwright's essay explores West's use of Spensarian imagery, arguing that this long, complex, sixteenth-century poem allowed West to express his own conflicting allegiances as an American-born painter who enjoyed enormous success as an expartriate living in London. Illustrations include the three known paintings West based on Spenser, other works by West, preparatory drawings, prints produced by other...


50 Greatest Love Letters of All Time
David H. Lowenherz
0517223333
January 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
"The act of writing," proposes Lowenherz, "gives us a chance to reflect in private before exposing our heart." Hence the value of the love letter as an abiding expression of the writer's feelings in all their depth and complexity. A prominent collector and dealer in letters and historical memorabilia, Lowenherz presents letters (or fragments thereof) that collectively express the full range of amorous passion, from blind adoration to angst-ridden vituperation. Included are the romantic outpourings of celebrated writers George Sand, Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemingway, Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald whose literary talents make their correspondence a model for any aspiring lover. Perhaps less gifted in their command of language, but certainly no less heartfelt, are selections from such notables as Harry Truman, Abigail...

From Publishers Weekly
The sights and sounds of contemporary Hollywood lift Wilson's well-plotted sixth Benjamin Justice mystery (after 2003's Blind Eye). When actor-turned-writer Bruce Bibby is brutally murdered in his apartment, journalist-sleuth Justice takes on the task of finishing a booklet Bibby was working on that celebrates the 20th anniversary of the City of West Hollywood. It seems a simple enough task, but proves to be only the tip of the iceberg. Bibby's murder is somehow connected to a shady condominium development deal, as well as to the still-mysterious, decades-old disappearance of a local handyman. The advantages of the glitzy L.A. setting include glimpses of the rich and famous: Robert Duvall makes a cameo appearance, as does the Chateau Marmont, where John Belushi died of an overdose. The ghosts of Hollywood past...
