Book Review
"In Quebec, winters can be slow for the forensic anthropologist. The temperature rarely rises above freezing. The rivers and lakes ice over, the ground turns rock hard, and snow buries everything. Bugs disappear, and many scavengers go underground. The result: Corpses do not putrefy in the great outdoors. Floaters are not pulled from the St. Lawrence... and some of last season's dead are not found until the spring melt."

Readers of Kathy Reichs's cool and clever first forensic thriller Déjà Dead will recognize the ironic voice of Tempe (short for Temperance) Brennan, the North Carolina-born scientist who winds up working at the Laboratoire de Médicine Légale in Montreal. Here she bristles at the conservative attitudes of some of her Canadian colleagues.

Despite the cold weather, Tempe's...

Textbook Paperback

Book Description
Stephen Crane's first novel is the tale of a pretty young slum girl driven to brutal excesses by poverty and loneliness. It was considered so sexually frank and realistic, that the book had to be privately printed at first. It and GEORGE'S MOTHER, the shorter novel that follows in this edition, were eventually hailed as the first genuine expressions of Naturalism in American letters and established their creator as the American apostle of an artistic revolution which was to alter the shape and destiny of civilization itself. --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

Card catalog description
This edition of Maggie reprints Crane's original, unexpurgated 1893 text and includes many additional contemporary documents chosen to help reconstruct the...

From the Back Cover
Everyone loves a circus. Whether it's the Big Top or one of the earliest mud shows, the performances are as amusing as they are mysterious. This anthology allows the reader to peek behind the curtain at circuses from as long ago as the 1800s through modern times.
This collection is filled with colorful personalities, from clowns to acrobats, tightrope walkers to lion tamers. The circus offers something spectacular for everyone. It is the world in miniature. Some people may visit the show to gawk and stare, while others are seduced by the drama and mystique of the carefully choreographed, yet death-defying performances. Whatever the reason for going to the circus, everyone leaves in awe.
Stephen Vincent Brennan, with his unique firsthand viewpoint, carefully selected each story in this enthralling collection....

Book Description
Like so many of the great Irish authors, McPherson's writing has a beautiful, lyrical quality and the characters he creates are not easily forgotten. Once again, he explores the heart and psyche of the common man in these three interconnected monologues. The young man who is desperate to move out of his parent's house once and for all; the middle-aged man, a borderline alcoholic and serial loser who has landed a job he's not qualified for; and the old man, a sprightly widower who tries to make the most of his mundane retirement home existence. Set against a backdrop of contemporary Dublin-these three different generations are vastly different yet all three share a common concern about lost love-and their own part in losing it. The power of these three interlocking stories grows gradually into one incisive portrait of...

From the Back Cover
History is filled with myth. Heroes and icons from our distant past are no longer remembered by people who actually experienced them. They are remembered by the stories passed down from generation to generation. After so many centuries have passed it is often difficult to discern who was truly alive, and who lived only in the minds of the storytellers.
Whether or not the characters in a story ever existed is a decision readers will have to make on their own. Regardless of when or where the characters may have lived, each story in this collection shares a moral lesson that applies to the world today.
Classic Legendary Hero Stories includes characters from a variety of places and time periods, including:

Gilgamesh • Rama • Hercules • David • Achilles
Odysseus • Beowulf...
