Frank Lloyd Wright Houses

November 2005
Hardcover

Book Description
Frank Lloyd Wright is not only synonymous with architecture, his name is also synonymous with the American house in the twentieth century. In particular, his residential work has been the subject of continuing interest and controversy. Wright's Fallingwater (1935), the seminal masterpiece perched over a waterfall deep in the Pennsylvania highlands, is perhaps the best-known private house in the history of the world. In fact, Wright's houses-from his Prairie style Robie House (1906) in Chicago, to the Storer (1923) and Freeman (1923) houses in Los Angeles, and Taliesen West (1937) in the Arizona desert-are all touchstones of modern architecture. For the first time, all 289 extant houses are shown here in exquisite color photographs. Along with Weintraub's stunning photos and a selection of floor plans and archival...


V for Vendetta

Book Review
V for Vendetta is, like its author's later Watchmen, a landmark in comic-book writing. Alan Moore has led the field in intelligent, politically astute (if slightly paranoid), complex adult comic-book writing since the early 1980s. He began V back in 1981 and it constituted one of his first attempts (along with the criminally neglected but equally superb Miracleman) at writing an ongoing series. It is 1998 (which was the future back then!) and a Fascist government has taken over the U.K. The only blot on its particular landscape is a lone terrorist who is systematically killing all the government personnel associated with a now destroyed secret concentration camp. Codename V is out for vengeance ... and an awful lot more. V feels slightly dated like all past premonitions do. The original series was black and white and that...

Being Martha: The Inside Story of Martha Stewart
Lloyd Allen
0471771015
January 2006
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
Get ready for the slew of books on Martha Stewart now that her prison term is completed--some obnoxiously pro-Martha, others tenuous (since, after all, she is one of the world's wealthiest women), and some straightforward, without bias. Former Connecticut neighbor Allen definitely falls in the first category--all Martha, all the way. There is little, in fact, to report on the negative front; Allen had ample access to family and friends to paint a flattering portrait. To be sure, her ego reads loud and clear, like her yearbook quote: "I do what I please and I do it with ease." Tracing her background back to the Kostyra household, he touches on her multitude of successes--in modeling, stock brokerage, catering, and book publishing and as CEO--along with the well-documented ImClone troubles. Occasionally, as a seeming sop to...

From Publishers Weekly
Sex, like chocolate, is a pleasure, and just as no one needs a guidebook to teach them how to enjoy chocolate, surely no one needs a guidebook to tell them how to have sex. Such is the unfortunate logic that stigmatizes sex guides. Luckily, there are brave souls like Lloyd (Nice Couples Do It; 52 Saturday Nights) who acknowledge our hang-ups, kindly pat us on the head and go right on giving us exactly what we need: some good advice. This latest offering in the celebrated sex expert's catalog focuses on the ins and outs of achieving the "big O." This is no prescriptive locker room lecture, however; Lloyd's advice is "sex-positive"-not only does she not chastise readers for not knowing how to find the g-spot, she'll honor one's desire to leave it hidden. That said, the book's purpose is certainly to move lovers...

Review
'Hodgkin comes across in this enjoyable book as a genial and humane scientist passionately devoted to his research for its own sake both before and after being awarded his Nobel prize.' M. F. Perutz, Nature
'A masterly exposition of his life's work.' Sir Bernard Katz, New Scientist

Review
"There is much in this autobiography besides Hodgkin's classic work on neurophysiology. For the physicists, there is a technical account of the development of airborne radar. For the general reader, the book contains vivid descriptions of Hodgkin's happy childhood among the often eccentric members of his many-branched Quaker family and of the Cambridge scene in the 1930s." Nature

"...provides an interesting view of school and family life in Britain between the two world wars, and indeed of...

Book Description
Edgar Allen Poe lies dying in a gutter in Baltimore... The Doctor and Ace cannot help him - his death has already happened. Poe will be taken to a hospital, and will die in three days time without ever coming out of his coma. But even as the Doctor explains this, the man in the gutter groans and expires. Bewildered, the Doctor hurries Ace back to the TARDIS. At the door, they look back and see that the gutter is empty. In a moment, Poe staggers around the corner, drops to his knees in the gutter, then gets up and stumbles into another bar... Can the Doctor discover what is causing the time anomaly? Will he be able to prevent the universe itself from unraveling when everyone seems to have turned against him - even the TARDIS? Will he be able to escape the cold hell of absolute order? The answer, it seems, lies in the...


The Turn of the Screw
Henry James

Book Review
The story starts conventionally enough with friends sharing ghost stories 'round the fire on Christmas Eve. One of the guests tells about a governess at a country house plagued by supernatural visitors. But in the hands of Henry James, the master of nuance, this little tale of terror is an exquisite gem of sexual and psychological ambiguity. Only the young governess can see the ghosts; only she suspects that the previous governess and her lover are controlling the two orphaned children (a girl and a boy) for some evil purpose. The household staff don't know what she's talking about, the children are evasive when questioned, and the master of the house (the children's uncle) is absent. Why does the young girl claim not to see a perfectly visible woman standing on the far side of the lake? Are the children being deceptive, or...

Book Description
Colquhoun, an eminent scholar in the field of architecture, offers here a new account of international modernism that explores the complex motivations behind this revolutionary movement and assesses its triumphs and failures. The book focuses on the work of the main architects of the movement
such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Adolf Loos, Le Corbusier, and Mies van der Rohe, re-examining their work and shedding new light on their roles as acknowledged masters. The author presents a fascinating analysis of architecture with regard to politics, technology, and ideology, all while offering clear
descriptions of the key elements of the Modern movement.

Colquhoun shows clearly the evolution of the movement from Art Nouveau in the 1890s to the mega-structures of the 1960s, revealing the often-contradictory demands of...
