From the Publisher

The Great Book of Bob is a unified collection of humorous, soul-wrenching, and harshly honest tales and thoughts gleaned from a lifelong love story—stories of a poet’s love of sunrises, poetic epiphanies, laughter, and for the soul mate of his life. And the best part about it, it’s not some icky-sticky, lovey-poo bunch of hearts and flowers. It’s hard-edged wonder and real reason for all of us to be glad to be alive. Robert Nichols tells his stories that we may each realize the significance of our own. He describes his work as: Stories and rants and impassioned blessings for the soul—the wild-eyed, bliss-bludgeoned decades of an American poet… And all of it in a book about you, Dear Reader. YOU!

Crimes of the Heart

S.B. Like many of his novels, Spanish author Javier Marías’ new book, Thus Bad Begins, isn’t exactly a mystery, though it is mysterious. Here, the 65-year-old perennial Nobel favorite tells the story of Juan de Vere, a young man working for a film director, Eduardo Muriel. The older man assigns his apprentice the task of finding out a secret about a longtime friend. Meanwhile, de Vere is intrigued by the cold relationship between Muriel and his depressed wife Beatriz—at some point in their past, she did something unforgivable, also a secret, and de Vere wants to find out what.

Alexander McCall Smith: In Praise of W.H. Auden

Alexander McCall Smith, best known for the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency series, sees his latest book, My Italian Bulldozer, hit American shelves today. What was the first book you fell in love with? When I was a very young boy I had a book called Ginger’s Adventures. It was all about a dog that fled from a life of pampered luxury to go and live on a farm. I loved it when the dog made it to the country. I recently found a copy of this book and was delighted to discover that I remembered virtually every word of it. Name a classic you feel guilty about never having read? I must read Moby Dick.
