Some edgewear and creasing of spine and covers,as well age toning, otherwise still a fair reading copy - from the OCLC :"On a sultry summer night in 1915, Jay Follet leaves his house in Knoxville, Tennessee, to tend to his father, whom he believes is dying. The summons turns out to be a false alarm, but on his way back to his family, Jay has a car accident and is killed instantly. Dancing back and forth in time and braiding the viewpoints of Jay's wife, brother, and young son, Rufus, Agee creates an overwhelmingly powerful novel of innocence, tenderness and loss that should be read aloud for the sheer music of its prose."

Freud for Beginners
U.S.A.
Pantheon
1990
0679725091 / 9780679725091

Soft Cover
New





BRAND NEW UNREAD COPY- From the publisher:"Everything you need to know about neurosis, libido, ego, and id -- but somehow it slipped your mind. Freud for Beginners is a perfect introduction to the life and thought of the man whose discovery of psychoanalysis revolutionized our attitudes towards mental illness, religion, sex, and culture. This documentary cartoon book plunges us into the world of late-nineteenth-century Vienna in which Freud grew up. We explore his early background in science, his work as a therapist, his encounter with cocaine, and his theories on the unconscious, dreams, the Oedipus Complex, and sexuality. We meet his family, his friend and enemies, and his patients -- The Rat Man, Anna O., Little Hans -- and we get an insider's view as the psychoanalytic movement is launched. The zany art and probing text do an extraordinary job of simplifying Freud without trivializing him."

Very slight edgewear and faint creasing of spine and covers otherwise a fine clean tight and bright copy. From the Barnes & Noble Review:"Nebula Award winning author Catherine Asaro, renowned for her epic science fiction saga of the Skolian Empire (The Quantum Rose, Spherical Harmonic, et al.), has penned her first full-length fantasy novel with The Charmed Sphere -- a story about insatiable greed, wild magic, and untamed love.Originally a novella entitled "Moonglow" in 2003's Charmed Destinies anthology, The Charmed Sphere is the much-expanded story about a reluctant mage and an equally reluctant heir. Chime is living an idyllic life with her family in the rural hamlet of Jacob's Vale. But her life is turned upside down when one of the King of Aronsdale's most trusted advisers, searching the kingdom for shape-mages, identifies her as a promising mage with powerful undeveloped ability. Chime reluctantly agrees to travel to Castle Suncroft, where she is to be trained in the art of magecraft -- and also groomed for her marriage to Prince Muller, the heir to the throne of Aronsdale! Muller is the nephew to the king, and the last thing he wants to do is get married and rule a kingdom. He's more concerned with fashion than affairs of state. When the King of Aronsdale dies and Muller continues to postpone his royal ascension, the leader of a neighboring kingdom -- along with an insane mage bent on destroying Aronsdale -- sees the transition as the perfect time to strike. Simply put, The Charmed Sphere is a novel of superlatives. If a reader were to choose only one new romantic fantasy to read, it should be Catherine Asaro's unforgettable gem. Paul Goat Allen

Soft Cover

Some edgewear and creasing of spine and covers otherwise still a good reading copy. From the publisher:"Fans of smart, romantic comedy à la Cathleen Schine and Caroline Preston will love heroine Diana Campanella, a thirtyish vintage-clothing store owner struggling to salvage her floundering business, placate her Catholic family, and choose between two very different Mr. Rights. Diana Campanella has been a little panicky lately -- and with good reason. Her vintage clothing store is on the verge of going bust and her engagement to her lawyer fiancé has lasted longer than most people's marriages. What's a girl to do? Struggling to make ends meet while keeping the peace in her boisterous family Diana feels caught between one sister who makes her living as a lingerie model and another who is a devout Catholic housewife. But just when all seems lost, hope arrives in the form of a rumpled New York lawyer named Harry -- a soul mate whose generous supply of warmth and compassion more than make up for his shortage of designer duds. Now Diana has to make a choice between the blueblood fiancé who promises the security she desperately craves and the scrappy dark horse who always manages to make her laugh. This wry, sophisticated. lighthearted novel features first-rate writing, a delightful, "just-between-us-girls" spirit, a terrific cast of characters who feel like old friends and a wise heroine for the nineties. Cupid and Diana is a witty and winning debut."

Ex-Library

Illustrated

Hardcover 1st edition rescued from a library cull. Light shelf and edgewear and usual stamps and stickers, but generally in quite nice shape. Illustrated with photographs. From the publisher:"Daughter of Destiny, the autobiography of Benazir Bhutto, is a historical document of uncommon passion and courage, the dramatic story of a brilliant, beautiful woman whose life was, up to her tragic assassination in 2007, inexorably tied to her nation's tumultuous history. Bhutto writes of growing up in a family of legendary wealth and near-mythic status, a family whose rich heritage survives in tales still passed from generation to generation. She describes her journey from this protected world onto the volatile stage of international politics through her education at Radcliffe and Oxford, the sudden coup that plunged her family into a prolonged nightmare of threats and torture, her father's assassination by General Zia ul-Haq in 1979, and her grueling experience as a political prisoner in solitary confinement. With candor and courage, Benazir Bhutto recounts her triumphant political rise from her return to Pakistan from exile in 1986 through the extraordinary events of 1988: the mysterious death of Zia; her party's long struggle to ensure free elections; and finally, the stunning mandate that propelled her overnight into the ranks of the world's most powerful, influential leaders."

A Chain of Voices
Scarborough, ON, Canada
HarperCollins Publishers Canada, Limited
1983
0006540015 / 9780006540014

Soft Cover
Fair to Good





Minor edgewear and light creasing of spine and covers, the cover has minor discolouration, and the interior contains some age-toning, otherwise still a good reading copy. From the publisher:"On a farm near the Cape Colony in the early nineteenth century, a slave rebellion kills three and leaves eleven others condemned to death. The rebellion's leader, Galant, was raised alongside the boys who would become his masters. His first victim, Nicholas van der Merwe, might have been his brother. As the many layers of Andre Brink's novel unfold, it becomes clear that the violent uprising is as much a culmination of family tensions as it is an outcry against the oppression of slavery. Spanning three generations and narrated in the voices of both the living and the dead, A Chain of Voices is reminiscent of William Faulkner's Absalom, Absalom!; it is a beautiful and haunting illustration of racism's plague on South Africa."
