ineteenth-century Europe—from Turin to Prague to Paris—abounds with the ghastly and the mysterious. Conspiracies rule history. Jesuits plot against Freemasons. Italian republicans strangle priests with their own intestines. French criminals plan bombings by day and celebrate Black Masses at night. Every nation has its own secret service, perpetrating forgeries, plots, and massacres. From the unification of Italy to the Paris Commune to the Dreyfus Affair to The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, Europe is in tumult and everyone needs a scapegoat. But what if, behind all of these conspiracies both real and imagined, lay one lone man? What if that evil genius created its most infamous document? Eco takes his readers on an unforgettable journey through the underbelly of world-shattering events. Eco at his most exciting, a book immediately hailed as a masterpiece.

The Name of the Rose



et us forget the Mountain of Thunder, the left bank of the Rhine and that period of time, I said to myself. Let us imagine conspirators who come from every part of the

world and represent the tentacles of their sect which spread through every country; let us assemble them together in a forest clearing, a cave, a castle, a cemetery or a crypt, provided it is reasonably dark; let us get one of them to pronounce a speech which clearly sets out the plan, and the intention to conquer the world... I have known many people who feared the conspiracy of some hidden enemy: for my grandfather it was the Jews, for the Jesuits the Masons, for my Garibaldian father the Jesuits, for the kings of half Europe the Carbonari, for my Mazzinian companions the king backed by the priests, for the police throughout half the world the Bavarian Illuminati, and so forth. Who knows how many other people in this world still think they are being threatened by some conspiracy. Here is a form to be filled out at will — each to their own conspiracy.

Donald Hall

The back Chamber
The first full-length volume of poems in a decade by former poet laureate of the United States Donald Hall

n The Back Chamber, Donald Hall illuminates the evocative, iconic objects of deep memory—“a cowbell,” “a white stone perfectly round,” “a three-legged milking stool”—that serve to foreground the rich meditations on time and mortality that run through his remarkable new collection. While Hall’s devoted readers will recognize many of his long-standing preoccupations—baseball, the family farm, love, sex, and friendship—what will strike them as new is the fierce, pitiless poignancy he reveals as his own life’s end comes into view. The Back Chamber is far from being death-haunted but rather is lively, irreverent, sexy, hilarious, ironic, and sly—full of the life-affirming energy that has made Donald Hall one of America’s most popular and enduring poets.

Here, she combines her science and activism to show just how smart dolphins really are and why we must stop mistreating them. readers will be astonished at their sophisticated lifelong creativity and playfulness, their emotional intelligence, their level of self-awareness, and their ability to communicate with humans. Her beloved mentor dolphins (as she calls them), each with distinct personalities, create their own toys, use underwater keyboards, tease and scold her playfully, and give us glimpses of their intelligence that often seem very familiar. The Dolphin in the Mirror is both a scientific revelation and an emotional eye-opener, revealing one of the greatest intelligences on the planet.

Jane goodall and Dian fossey


The Dolphin in the Mirror

There was Shiloh right in front of me, blowing bubbles. I watched as Shiloh quite deliberately positioned herself horizontally almost on the floor of the pool, and then moved her head upward, a quick jerking motion. At the same instant, she let out a large bubble that instantly formed itself into a perfect, lustrous bubble ring that looked like a silver halo, or even, as someone once observed, a miniature UFO. I had heard anecdotal accounts of dolphins and whales blowing bubbles under different circumstances, but I had never before seen it in action. It was a magical moment. Before I’d had a chance to savor it fully, Shiloh blew another bubble ring. This one seemed to be a little smaller than the first, and it traveled upward faster. Within seconds the new ring had met with the first and, in a moment of undulating creativity, coalesced to form a much larger ring. Shiloh had been watching these events very carefully too, and as soon as the two rings became one, she quickly swam vertically upward and passed through the hoop with an exaggerated flourish.

n the village of Tel Ilan, something is off kilter. An elderly man complains to his daughter that he hears the sound of digging under his house at night. Could it be his tenant, a young Arab? But then the tenant hears the mysterious digging sounds too. The mayor receives a note from his wife: “Don’t worry about me.” He looks all over, no sign of her. The veneer of new wealth around the village—gourmet restaurants and art galleries, a winery—cannot conceal abandoned outbuildings, disused air raid shelters, rusting farm tools, and trucks left wherever they stopped. Amos oz’s novel-in-stories is a brilliant, unsettling glimpse of what goes on beneath the surface of everyday life. Scenes from Village Life is a parable for Israel, and for all of us.

Ariel Dorfman

Feeding on Dreams
Confessions of an Unrepentant exile
Hailed by Salman Rushdie as “one of the most important voices coming out of Latin America,” the best-selling author and human rights activist Ariel Dorfman delivers a memoir excavating for the first time his profound and provocative journey as an exile.

n september 1973, the military took power in Chile, and Ariel Dorfman, allied to deposed president salvadore Allende, was forced to flee for his life. Feeding on Dreams is the story of the transformative decades of exile that followed. Dorfman portrays, through visceral scenes and powerful intellect, the personal and political maelstroms underlying his migrations from Buenos Aires, on the run from Pinochet’s death squads, to safe houses in Paris and Amsterdam, and eventually to America, his childhood home. And then, seventeen years after he was forced to leave, there is a yearned-for return to Chile, with an unimaginable outcome. The toll on Dorfman’s wife and two sons, the “earthquake of language” that is bilingualism, and his eventual questioning of his allegiance to past and party—all these crucibles of a life in exile are revealed with wry and startling honesty. Feeding on Dreams is a passionate reminder that “we are all exiles,” that we are all “threatened with annihilation if we do not find and celebrate the refuge of common humanity,” as Dorfman did during his “decades of loss and resurrection.”

hree brothers tear their way through childhood— smashing tomatoes all over each other, building kites from trash, hiding out when their parents do battle, tiptoeing around the house as their mother sleeps off her graveyard shift. Paps and Ma are from Brooklyn—he’s Puerto rican, she’s white—and their love is a serious, dangerous thing that makes and unmakes a family many times. Life in this family is fierce and absorbing, full of chaos and heartbreak and the euphoria of belonging completely to one another. From the intense familial unity felt by a child to the profound alienation he endures as he begins to see the world, this beautiful novel reinvents the coming-of-age story in a way that is sly and punch-in-the-stomach powerful. Written in magical language with unforgettable images, this is a stunning exploration of the viscerally charged landscape of growing up, how deeply we are formed by our earliest bonds, and how we are ultimately propelled at escape velocity toward our futures.

no other book i’ve read.” —Michael cunningham


When we were brothers, when we were all three together, we made a woman. We stacked up on one another’s shoulders and wrapped ourselves in Ma’s long winter coat. Manny was the bottom, the legs, and Joel was the stomach, and I was the lightest, so I was the woman’s head. We used a ladder to keep from tipping over, but Manny’s knees buckled under our weight, so we had to lie down on the ground and do it that way; we were a fallen woman who could not get back up, a helpless woman, flat on her back. When we were brothers, we were Musketeers. “Three for all! And free for all!” we shouted, and stabbed at each other with forks. We were monsters—Frankenstein, the bride of Frankenstein, the baby of Frankenstein. We fashioned slingshots out of butter knives and rubber bands, crouched under cars and flung pebbles at white women—we were the Three Bears, taking revenge on Goldilocks for our missing porridge. The magic of God is three. We were the magic of God.

rmy cop Erik rider is enjoying his war until he’s sent to disrupt Vietcong opium fields in a remote Highland province. rider lands in Cheo reo, home to hard-pressed soldiers, intelligence operatives, and profiteers of all stripes. The tiny u.s. contingent and their unenthusiastic Vietnamese allies are hopelessly outnumbered by infiltrating enemy infantry. And they’re all surrounded by sixty thousand Montagnard tribespeople who want their mountain homeland back. The Vietcong are on to rider’s game and have placed a bounty on his head. As he hunts the opium fields, skirmishes with enemy patrols, and defends the undermanned u.s. base, rider makes a disturbing discovery: someone close to home has a stake in the opium smuggling ring—and will kill to protect it. Written by a master, and as authentic as Matterhorn or Dog Soldiers, Red Flags is a riveting new addition to espionage fiction.

the extraordinary Story of a Northern Plantation
The immensely rich biography of a house— Sylvester Manor, on Shelter Island, New York— and of the unknown Colonial way of life it reveals

cA N
AuthOR’S ReSIDeNCe Sag harbor, New York

he acclaimed author and landscape historian Mac Griswold brings alive the story both of the seventeenthcentury provisioning plantation for the West Indies and of its english-Dutch founders—the existence of which Griswold uncovered in her ten years of research in the secret family vault, beautiful Georgian house, gardens, and burial grounds. Nathaniel sylvester and his seventeen-year-old bride, Grizzell, converted Quakers, were at the center of early New england radicalism. And yet they owned twenty-four African slaves, who lived in intimate connection with the family. on-site archeological excavations illuminating 350 years of habitation—the longest span one family has continuously occupied the same property north of the Mason-Dixon line—are themselves a fascinating subtext of Griswold’s story. the digs reveal, astonishingly, a Manhansett encampment less than a hundred yards from the house. A number of these people, too, labored on the plantation. the book’s story of this forced merger of three cultures, fused in an extraordinary way of life, has never before been so powerfully documented.

Fenway 1912
The Birth of a Ballpark, a Championship Season, and Fenway’s Remarkable First Year
In anticipation of the one hundredth anniversary of America’s most beloved ballpark, the untold story of how Fenway Park was born and the remarkable first season ever played there


or all that has been written in tribute to the great Fenway Park, no one has ever really told the behind-thescenes true story of its tumultuous yet glorious first year. nineteen twelve was a leap year, the year the Titanic sank, but also the year baseball’s original shrine was “born.” And while the paint was still drying, the infield grass still coming in, the red sox embarked on an unlikely season that would culminate in a World series battle against the Giants that stands as one of the greatest ever played. Fenway 1912 tells the incredible story—and stories—of Fenway, from the unorthodox blueprint that belies the park’s notorious quirks, to the long winter when locals poured concrete and erected history, to the notorious fixers who then ruled the game, to the ragtag team who delivered a world championship, Fenway’s first. Drawing on extensive new research, the esteemed baseball historian Glenn stout delivers a rollicking tale of innovation, desperation, and perspiration, capturing Fenway as never before.

The General Who Lost Vietnam
Is this man the real reason the Vietnam War was lost? How did he get there, why did he fail, and how did he last so long?


nless and until we understand General William Westmoreland, we will never understand what happened to us in Vietnam, or why. An Eagle scout at fifteen, First Captain of his West Point class, Westmoreland fought in World War II and Korea, rising rapidly to command the 101st Airborne Division and become superintendent at West Point, then was chosen to lead the war effort in Vietnam. That turned out to be a disaster. He failed to understand a complex war, choosing a flawed strategy, sticking to it in the face of all opposition, and misrepresenting the results when truth mattered most. In so doing he squandered four years of support by Congress, much of the media, and the American people. The tragedy of William Westmoreland provides lessons not just for Vietnam, but for America’s future military and political leadership. Lewis sorley’s definitive portrait is essential reading.

t is the fifteenth century, and the tumultuous Hundred years’ War rages on. France is under siege, English soldiers tear through the countryside destroying all who cross their path, and Charles VII, the uncrowned king, has neither the strength nor the will to rally his army. And in the quiet of her parents’ garden in Domrémy, a peasant girl sees a spangle of light and hears a powerful voice speak her name. Jehanne. The story of Jehanne d’Arc, the visionary and saint who believed she had been chosen by God, who led an army and saved her country, has captivated our imagination for centuries. But the story of Jehanne—the girl—whose sister was murdered by the English, who sought an escape from a violent father and a forced marriage, who taught herself to ride and fight, and who somehow found the courage and tenacity to persuade first one, then two, then thousands to follow her, is at once thrilling, unexpected, and heartbreaking. rich with unspoken love and battlefield valor, The Maid is a novel about the power and uncertainty of faith, and the exhilarating and devastating consequences of fame.

reimagines the life of a saint



the maid

he afternoon before they left for Lorraine, she sat in her bedroom at the Le Royer’s, packing her things into a blanket. Metz came and poked his head in the open door. “Almost ready?” Jehanne nodded and reached for the red dress that lay folded beside her on the bed. Metz opened his mouth. Then closed it. Then opened it again. “You can’t wear that,” he said. “Not to travel.” He was silent for a moment. “Not for any of the things you’re talking about doing, actually.” A strange sensation then. Joy and terror at once. Her heart glowing, her belly cold. To dress as a member of the opposite sex was expressly forbidden by the Bible. A sin punishable by death. A spider walked down her spine. She asked Metz what she should wear instead, knowing what his answer would be. “Let me lend you some clothes,” he said. “It’s better if you travel as one of us.” She knew when she took her dress off, it was the last time. She knew she’d never put it on again. She folded it tenderly and put it on the blanket with the rest of her things. The hose felt strange at first. She’d never worn them before. It was odd to have the wool snug like that, right up against her sex. The seams biting into the tops of her thighs. Odd to feel the loose rough cloth of the tunic brushing lightly against her nipples instead of the snug linen bodice she was used to. The sleeves hung down past her hands like bells, the hose bunched at the ankles. But it delighted her too. It transformed her, made her into someone else, a creature of her own invention. Not Jehanne, daughter of Jacques and Zabillet d’Arc of Domrémy, but Jehanne the Virgin, Child of God. And it seemed to her that she had crossed a bridge of some kind. Left one world behind, moved forward into another.

ife, mother, leader, warrior. Caterina riario sforza was one of the most prominent women in renaissance Italy—and one of the most vilified. In this glittering biography, Elizabeth Lev reexamines her extraordinary life and accomplishments. raised in the court of Milan and wed at age ten to the pope’s corrupt nephew, Caterina was ensnared in Italy’s political intrigues early in life. After turbulent years in rome’s papal court, she moved to the romagnol province of Forlì. Following her husband’s assassination, she ruled Italy’s crossroads with iron will, martial strength, political savvy—and an icon’s fashion sense. In finally losing her lands to the Borgia family, she put up a resistance that inspired all of Europe and set the stage for her progeny—including Cosimo de Medici—to follow her example to greatness. A rich evocation the renaissance, The Tigress of Forlì reveals Caterina riario sforza as a brilliant and fearless ruler, and a tragic but unbowed figure.

men in the making
From the author of the Wake of forgiveness— “a mesmerizing, mythic saga”*—ten remarkable stories that tackle what it means to be a man


hether they find themselves walking the fertile farmland of south Texas, steering trucks through the suffocating sprawl of Houston, or turning logs into loose leaf in the mills just west of the sabine river, the men of these stories find themselves beset by the insufficiencies of their own ingrained ideas of manhood. Like richard russo, Bruce Machart has a profound knowledge of the male psyche and a gift for conveying the absurdity and brutality of daily life with humor and compassion. Alternately lush with lyricism and starkly candid, these stories emerge from inside a vividly scrutinized everyday of farms, refineries, hospitals, and homes to explore what it means to be a man at the rise of a new millennium. What it means to be a man who can’t protect his wife from violence, or protect his children from tragic accidents, or protect himself from loss and heartbreak. Machart’s characters have a deep and abiding humanity that makes their hardscrabble lives all the more unforgettable.

n this, his last novel, saramago daringly reimagines the characters and narratives of the Bible through the story of Cain. Condemned to wander forever after he kills Abel, he is whisked around in time and space. He experiences the almost-sacrifice of Isaac by Abraham, the Tower of Babel, the destruction of sodom and Gomorrah, Joshua at the battle of Jericho, Job’s ordeal, and finally noah’s ark and the Flood. And over and over again Cain encounters an unjust, even cruel God. A startling, beautifully written, and powerful book, in all ways a fitting end to saramago’s extraordinary career.

s actress, activist, businesswoman, wife, and mother, Jane Fonda has pushed herself to the limit, attempting to please all, excel in every arena, be everything. We’ve read her version of her controversial life, yet nothing can prepare us for this genuinely revelatory account of Jane’s engrossing, sometimes shocking journey. supplemented by the psychiatric records of her suicidal, bipolar mother, Fonda’s FBI file, and interviews with her intimates, this perceptive portrait strips away hype and the subject’s own mythmaking. Patricia Bosworth shows us what a toll Jane’s quest to excel (and please her demanding father, Henry) exacted and sheds light on truths she’s glossed over: her rejection of her mother before her suicide; the death threats and self-doubts of her antiwar crusade; her second husband Tom Hayden’s habit of putting her down while spending her fortune; the emotional downfall that led her to stop acting and marry Ted Turner. Lee strasberg once said that Jane had “panic in her eyes,” and it is this wounded but so familiar woman— human yet still heroic, the embodiment of a generation’s conflicts and triumphs—whom Bosworth captures so utterly and definitively.

and all the things she never told us




uring the first weeks without Tom Hayden, Jane could barely speak above a whisper; she was having a hard time swallowing food or even water; she soon lost so much weight she appeared almost skeletal. At the one benefit she did attend in Beverly Hills, photographers caught her hanging onto Troy’s arm; she seemed totally dazed and out of it. Sometimes she’d spend all day at the house wandering in her nightgown, moving slowly around the cavernous living room, stopping to cuddle Spencer the golden retriever or Taxi the black Lab. The female mutt Scott was her favorite, but she didn’t really respond to any of her animals. There was no air conditioning, since she opposed it on environmental grounds, so the house was especially warm in the summer. She didn’t notice the temperature; she didn’t notice anything since she was contemplating her own death. She decided to stipulate in her will that Tom would not be able to speak at her funeral. “I was convinced he’d be opportunistic and try to do so—I couldn’t ever imagine we would be able to be friends.”

ith Tarnished Victory, William Marvel, whom stephen sears has called “the Civil War’s master historical detective,” concludes his sweeping four-part series—beginning with the Virginia and Atlanta campaigns in May 1864 and closing with the final surrender of Confederate forces in June 1865. In the course of that year the war grows ever more deadly, the home front is stripped to fill the armies, and the economy is crippled by debt and inflation, while the stubborn survival of the Confederacy seriously undermines support for Lincoln’s war. In the end, it seems that Lincoln’s early critics, who played such a pivotal role in the beginning of the series, are proven correct. Victory did require massive bloodshed and complete conquest of the south. It also required decades of occupation to cement the achievements of 1865, and the ultimate failure of Lincoln’s political heirs to carry through with that occupation squandered the most commendable of those achievements, making it ultimately a tarnished victory.

A Russian Life
The first new biography in twenty years of the literary colossus, spiritual leader, and icon of the nineteenth century “Conveys Tolstoy to me more vividly than any biography I have read.”—A. N. Wilson, financial times “Engaging . . . impressive.”—Claire Messud, telegraph

n november 1910, Count Lev Tolstoy died at a remote russian railway station. At the time of his death, he was the most famous man in russia, with a growing international following, and more revered than the tsar. Born into an aristocratic family, Tolstoy had spent his life rebelling not only against conventional ideas about literature and art but also against traditional education, family life, organized religion, and the state. In this exceptional biography, rosamund Bartlett draws extensively on key russian sources, including much fascinating new material made available since the collapse of the soviet union. she sheds light on Tolstoy’s remarkable journey from callow youth to writer to prophet; discusses his troubled relationship with his wife, sonya, a subject long neglected; and vividly evokes the russian landscapes Tolstoy so loved. Above all, she gives us an eloquent portrait of the brilliant, maddening, and contrary man who has, once again, been discovered by a new generation of readers.

ased on thousands of pages of typed and handwritten notes, journal entries, letters, and story sketches, The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick is the magnificent and imaginative final work of an author who dedicated his life to questioning the nature of reality and perception, the malleability of space and time, and the relationship between the human and the divine. Edited and introduced by Pamela Jackson and Jonathan Lethem, this will be the definitive presentation of Dick’s brilliant, and epic, final work. In the Exegesis, Dick documents his eight-year attempt to fathom what he called “2-3-74,” a postmodern visionary experience of the entire universe “transformed into information.” In entries that sometimes ran to hundreds of pages, Dick tried to write his way into the heart of a cosmic mystery that tested his powers of imagination and invention to the limit, adding to, revising, and discarding theory after theory, mixing in dreams and visionary experiences as they occurred, and pulling it all together in three late novels known as the VALIs trilogy. In this abridgment, Jackson and Lethem serve as guides, taking the reader through the Exegesis and establishing connections with moments in Dick’s life and work.

One day the contents of my mind moved faster and faster until they ceased being concepts and became percepts. I did not have concepts about the world but perceived it without preconception or even intellectual comprehension. It then resembled the world of UBIK. As if all the contents of one’s mind, if fused, became suddenly alive, a living entity, which took off within one’s head, on its own, saw in its own superior way, without regard to what you had ever learned or seen or known. The principle of emergence, as when nonliving matter becomes living. As if information (thought concepts) when pushed to their limit became metamorphosed into something alive.

Over a writing career that spanned three decades, PHiLiP K. diCK (1928–1982) published 36 science fiction novels and 121 short stories in which he explored the essence of what makes man human and the dangers of centralized power.

en years ago, in his best-selling Ethics for a New Millennium, His Holiness the Dalai Lama first proposed an approach to ethics based on universal rather than religious principles. now, in Beyond Religion, the Dalai Lama, at his most compassionate and outspoken, elaborates and deepens his vision for the nonreligious way. Transcending the mere “religion wars,” he outlines a system of secular ethics that gives tolerant respect to religion—those that ground ethics in a belief in God and an afterlife, and those that understand good actions as leading to better states of existence in future lives. And yet, with the highest level of spiritual and intellectual authority, the Dalai Lama makes a claim for what he calls a third way. This is a system of secular ethics that transcends religion as a way to recognize our common humanity and so contributes to a global human community based on understanding and mutual respect. Beyond Religion is an essential statement from the Dalai Lama, a blueprint for all those who yearn for a life of spiritual fulfillment as they work for a better world.

happy and ethical life.
From BEYOND RELIGION This book may seem odd, coming as it does from someone who has lived almost his whole life
as a monk, in robes, observing monastic vows, studying religious texts, and following a daily practice of meditation, prayer, and even some ritual. Yet it is precisely the commitment to strive for the welfare of all sentient beings which my faith demands that causes me to try to think beyond the confines of my own tradition. Of the world’s six billion and more inhabitants, only a minority are what I would consider sincere religious practioners. The majority of us human beings today, it seems, either lack genuine religious conviction or have actually rejected religion. So does it follow that these people are devoid of morality or spiritual life? Certainly not. Many are good people who are not only happy but also contribute greatly to the happiness and welfare of others. We need to recognize that in order to build a harmonious and peaceful world, we require more than just tolerance and understanding between the various religions. We also need mutual tolerance and understanding between believers (of whatever faith) and nonbelievers—between those with religion and those without. It seems to me therefore that the challenge we face is to give this nonreligious or agnostic approach a proper foundation, a foundation worthy of respect from the world’s faith traditions, and also worthy of steadfast and wholehearted conviction at the individual level.

TeNZiN GYATSO, His Holiness the Fourteenth dalai Lama, is the spiritual and temporal leader of the Tibetan people. His tireless efforts on behalf of human rights and world peace have brought him international recognition. He is the recipient of the Wallenberg Award (conferred by the U.S. Congressional Human Rights Foundation), the Albert Schweitzer Award, the Congressional Gold Medal, and the Nobel Peace Prize. • @hmhbooks • • HougHton Mifflin Harcourt • November 35

From the Foreword
by Joe Montana
The quarterback I rooted for back when I was a kid in Western Pennsylvania was Terry Bradshaw. Seeing all he went through, throwing a lot of interceptions and losing more than he won the first two seasons, yet still climbing to the top inspired me. I was always a Steelers fan and still am. Oh sure, I’m also a Niner fan, but when you are growing up, the love for your first team is ingrained in your heart and it never really leaves you. That’s why I think this book will be so enjoyable to football fans. Whatever team, player, coach or particular game stands out in their minds, they are likely to find them all here, giving them the chance to relive their most treasured memories. We all have our special football moments as fans. I remember, for an assignment for a junior high art class, I chose to draw the menacing figure of Dick Butkus I’d seen on a cover of Sports Illustrated. I remember being overwhelmed by the famous photo of quarterback Y. A. Tittle sitting on the turf, blood streaming down his face. I remember the Steel Curtain, Ray Nitschke, Walter Payton and Jim Brown. There are certain people that just pop up in your head who epitomize the NFL. These are the people who will pop up in this book, their storied careers brought back for an older generation that lived through those times and a younger generation that can see them for the first time.

ward-winning, internationally acclaimed author Anita Desai ruminates on art and memory, illusion and disillusion, and the sharp divide between life’s expectations and its realities in three perfectly etched novellas. set in India in the not-too-distant past, the stories’ dramas illuminate the ways in which Indian culture can nourish or suffocate. All are served up with Desai’s characteristic perspicuity, subtle humor, and sensitive writing. overwhelmed by their own lack of purpose, the men and women who populate these tales set out on unexpected journeys that present them with a fresh sense hope and opportunity. Like so many flies in a spider’s web, however, they cannot escape their surroundings—as none of us can. An impeccable craftsman, Desai elegantly reveals our human frailties and the power of place.

The Untrivial Pursuit
A dishy, incisive exploration of gossip — from celebrity rumors to literary romans à clef, personal sniping to political slander — by one our “great essayists” (David Brooks)

o his successful examinations of some of the most powerful forces in modern life—envy, ambition, snobbery, friendship — the keen observer and critic Joseph Epstein now adds Gossip. no trivial matter, despite its reputation, gossip, he argues, is an eternal and necessary human enterprise. Proving that he himself is a master of the art, Epstein serves up delightful mini-biographies of the Great Gossips of the Western World along with many choice bits from his own experience. He also makes a powerful case that gossip has morphed from its old-fashioned best — clever, mocking, a great private pleasure—to a corrosive new-school version, thanks to the reach of the mass media and the Internet. Gossip has invaded and changed for the worse politics and journalism, causing unsubstantiated information to be presented as fact. Contemporary gossip claims to reveal truth, but as Epstein shows, it’s our belief in truth that gossip today threatens to undermine and destroy. Written in his trademark erudite and witty style, Gossip captures the complexity of this immensely entertaining subject.

In Night of the Republic, Alan shapiro visits a gas station restroom, a shoe store, a convention hall, and a racetrack, among other places—and in stark Edward Hopper–like imagery reveals the surreal and dreamlike quality of these familiar but empty night spaces. shapiro finds in them not the expected alienation but rather an odd, companionable spirit of a community of solitude rising from the quiet emptiness. The collection also includes moving meditations of his childhood in Brookline, Massachusetts, and of tragic and haunting events such as the Cuban missile crisis and the assassination of JFK. While Night of the Republic is shapiro’s most ambitious, inventive, and accessible collection to date, it is also his most timely and urgent for the acute way it illuminates the mingling of private obsessions with public space.

lly Griffiths’s ruth Galloway novels have been praised as “highly atmospheric” (New York Times Book Review), “remarkable” (Richmond Times-Dispatch), and “gripping” (Louise Penny). now the beloved forensic archeologist returns, called in to investigate when human bones surface on a remote norfolk beach. Just back from maternity leave, ruth is finding it hard to juggle motherhood and work. The presence of DCI Harry nelson—the married father of her daughter, Kate—does not help. The bones turn out to be about seventy years old, which leads nelson and ruth to the war years, a desperate time on this stretch of coastland. Home Guard veteran Archie Whitcliffe reveals the existence of a secret that the old soldiers have vowed to protect with their lives. But then Archie is killed and a German journalist arrives, asking questions about operation Lucifer, a plan to stop a German invasion, and a possible British war crime. What was operation Lucifer? And who is prepared to kill to keep its secret?

God’s Jury
The inquisition and the Making of the Modern World
The acclaimed author of are We rome? brings his highly praised blend of deep research, colorful travelogue, and insightful political analysis to a new history of the Inquisition.


e think of the Inquisition as a holy war fought in the Middle Ages. But, as Cullen Murphy shows in this provocative new book, not only did its offices survive into the twentieth century, in the modern world its spirit is more influential than ever. Traveling from freshly opened Vatican archives to the detention camps of Guantánamo to the filing cabinets of the Third reich, he traces the Inquisition and its legacy. God’s Jury encompasses the diverse stories of the Knights Templar, Torquemada, Galileo, and Graham Greene. Established by the Catholic Church in 1231, the Inquisition continued in one form or another for almost seven hundred years. Though associated with the persecution of heretics and Jews—and with burning at the stake—its targets were more numerous and its techniques more ambitious. The Inquisition pioneered surveillance and censorship and “scientific” interrogation. As time went on, its methods and mindset spread far beyond the Church to become tools of secular persecution. With vivid immediacy and authority, Murphy puts a human face on a familiar but little-known piece of our past, and argues that only by understanding the Inquisition can we hope to explain the making of the present.

Chicken with forty cloves of garlic. Even bouillabaisse. The French Slow Cooker makes all of these as simple as setting the timer and walking away. Michele scicolone, who showed home cooks how to prepare extraordinary Italian fare in the slow cooker, now does the same for the French classics, adapting dishes from her travels all across France so they can be made with a fraction of the effort. scicolone gives plenty of tips for coaxing the utmost out of every dish while keeping the flavors fresh. And she goes far beyond the usual slow-cooker standbys of soups and stews.

ebastian seung, a dynamic young professor at MIT, is at the forefront of a revolution in neuroscience. He believes that our identity lies not in our genes, but in the connections between our brain cells—our own particular wiring. seung and a dedicated group of researchers are leading the effort to map these connections, neuron by neuron, synapse by synapse. It is a monumental effort—the scientific equivalent of climbing Mount Everest—but if they succeed, they will uncover the basis of personality, identity, intelligence, memory, and perhaps disorders such as autism and schizophrenia. seung explains how this new map of a human “connectome” might even enable us to “upload” our brains into a computer, making us effectively immortal. Connectome is a mind-bending adventure story, told with great passion and authority. It presents a daring scientific and technological vision for at last understanding what makes us who we are, both as individuals and as a species.

nce, the East was frontier—the boundary between complex native cultures and the first colonizing Europeans. How they each adopted and adapted the ways and manners of the other, while contesting for control of what all considered to be their land, shaped both societies in profound and lasting ways. The First Frontier traces two and a half centuries of history through poignant, mostly unheralded personal stories—like that of a Harvard-educated Indian caught up in seventeenth-century warfare, a mixed-blood interpreter trying to straddle his white and native heritage, and a Puritan woman wielding a scalping knife. It is the first book in years to tell the far-reaching story of the eastern frontier, combining vivid storytelling with the latest research to bring to life modern America’s tumultuous, uncertain beginnings.

Clover Adams
A Gilded and Heartbreaking Life
A revelatory life of Clover Adams, casting a lens on her iconic marriage to the historian Henry Adams and her fatal embrace of photography in her final months


lover, an inquisitive, loving, fiercely intelligent Boston Brahmin, married at twenty-eight the older and soonto-be-eminent Henry Adams. she thrived in her role as an intimate to political insiders in Gilded Age Washington, where she was valued for her wit and taste by such artistic luminaries as Henry James and H. H. richardson. Clover so clearly possessed, as one friend wrote, “all she wanted, all this world could give.” And yet at the center of her story is a haunting mystery. Why did Clover, having embarked on an exhilarating selftaught course of photography in the spring of 1883, end her life less than three years later by drinking from a vial of potassium cyanide, a chemical she used in developing her own photographs? The answer is revealed through natalie Dykstra’s original and dramatic discoveries regarding the thirteen-year Adams marriage. The denouement of Clover’s death is equally compelling. Dykstra illuminates Clover’s enduring stature as a woman betrayed. And, most movingly, she untangles the complex and poignant truth of her shining and impossible marriage.

here never has been a sports event, perhaps never an event of any kind, that received the attention of so many Americans in so many places around the world.” so wrote a reporter on December 2, 1944, about the greatest Armynavy football game in the long history of that storied rivalry. World War II raged in Europe, Africa, and the Pacific; President roosevelt was seriously ill, and just a few short months from his death; Americans on the home front suffered through shortages, including a Thanksgiving without turkey or pie just days earlier. But for one day, all that was forgotten. Army’s team was ranked number 1; navy, number 2. Army’s years of football misery had been lifted by a wartime team and a brilliant coach that made them a contender, and if they beat navy on that day, they would be national champions. Around the world, the war stopped as soldiers listened to a broadcast of the game. Everyone everywhere forgot everything for a few short hours. randy roberts has interviewed surviving players and coaches for nearly a decade to bring to life one of the most memorable stories in all of American sports. For three years, Army football upperclassmen graduated and joined the fight, from normandy beaches to Pacific atolls. For three hours, their alma mater gave them back one unforgettable performance.

“If the guy was a friend he’d probably have to pay two and a half,” Arlen said. “Thousand?” I said. “Yeah, thousand.” “And how much could a guy get in Florida for it?” “A guy could drop it in Florida for five or six.” “Thousand?” “Yeah, thousand.” The idea of something became planted in me. I didn’t know exactly what the idea was or what I would do about it, just that something could be had here in the mountains for a price you couldn’t get it for anywhere else and that I could buy it for that price and take it somewhere else and sell it for more than I’d paid. When I thought about it, I saw money, money we needed. I put thoughts of risk and danger away. I was already living in so much fear: that my child would go without, that I’d drag my family through poverty. More than anything else, I felt like I’d failed Kate in how our lives were supposed to be. I called Mason two nights later.

t the end of World War ii, nearly three million Jews were trapped inside the Soviet union. They lived a paradox—unwanted by a repressive Stalinist state, yet forbidden to leave. When They Come for Us, We’ll Be Gone is the astonishing and inspiring story of their rescue. Drawing on newly released Soviet government documents, as well as hundreds of oral interviews, Gal Beckerman shows not only how the movement led to a mass exodus in 1989, but also how it gave the American Jewish community a renewed sense of spiritual purpose and taught it to flex its political muscle. in cinematic detail, this multigenerational saga, filled with suspense and packed with revelations, provides an essential missing piece of Cold War and Jewish history.

The guys carried on conversations as if they were characters straight out of High Fidelity, constantly judging and ranking music. After listening to them make and revise their own Top Five lists, probably hundreds of times, I started developing a list of shortcuts for making a Top Five Artists list. As time went on, I added requirements of my own. These are strictly my rules, so if you feel like adding new criteria or ignoring one of my standards, knock yourself out. Except #3. Never ignore #3. You’ll see why. Most importantly, your Top Five list should reflect your taste and not what you think someone wants to hear. Dare to be uncool.


Rule #1: You must own at least all of the
full-length albums released by any artist in your Top Five.

Rule #2: An artist cannot be in your Top
Five of All Time if they’ve released only one album.

Rule #3: Update your Top Five list often. Rule #4: Diversify your Top Five with
artists from several decades.

Rule #5: Always be prepared to defend
your list.

Tales from the Darkroom
“A novel of great humility, questioning whether the measure of a life really is a life’s work.” —new York times book review “[Shows] a superb writer examining with playful seriousness and intelligent candor the relations between his work and his past.” —boston Globe A new York times book review Editors’ Choice

n an audacious literary experiment, Günter Grass writes in the voices of his eight children as they record memories of their childhoods, of growing up, of their father, who was always at work on a new book, always at the margins of their lives. Memories contradictory, critical, loving, accusatory—they piece together an intimate picture of this most public of men. To say nothing of Marie, a photographer and family friend of many years, whose snapshots taken with an old-fashioned Agfa box camera provide the author with ideas for his work. her images reveal a truth beyond the ordinary detail of life, depict the future, tell what might have been, and grant the wishes of those photographed. An inspired and daring work of fiction from the always provocative Grass.

All because some twenty years earlier the united States lost a war—and is now occupied by Nazi Germany and Japan. This harrowing, hugo Award–winning novel is the work that established Philip K.

he first book in Philip K. Dick’s defining trilogy, VALIS is a disorienting and bleakly funny novel about a schizophrenic man named horselover Fat (who just might also be known as Philip Dick), the hidden mysteries of Gnostic Christianity, and reality as revealed through a pink laser. VALIS is a theological detective story in which God is both a missing person and the perpetrator of the ultimate crime.


the Divine Invasion
eaturing virtual reality, parallel worlds, and interstellar travel, The Divine Invasion blends philosophy and adventure in a way few authors can pull off. As the middle novel of Dick’s VALiS trilogy, The Divine Invasion plays a pivotal role in answering the questions raised by the first novel, while keeping readers in the dark about just how true anything really is and just how much anyone can really know, even God himself.


the transmigration of timothy Archer
he final book in Philip K. Dick’s VALiS trilogy, The Transmigration of Timothy Archer brings the author’s search for the identity and nature of God to a close. This quiet, introspective book is one of Dick’s most philosophical and literary, delving into the mysteries of religion and of faith itself. As one of Dick’s last works, it also provides unique insight into the mind of a genius, whose work was still in the process of maturing at the time of his death.

But he has questions: is earth on the right side of the war? is he supposed to heal earth’s leader or keep him from getting well? And can he change the disturbing future that the drug has shown him?

But when a man discovers that the images of happy settlers have been faked, he sets out on an eighteen-year journey to see if anyone wants to come back.

a 1965 nebula award nominee

the Crack in Space
hen a repairman discovers a parallel universe, everyone sees it as an opportunity, whether to ease earth’s overcrowding, set up a personal kingdom, or hide an inconvenient mistress. But when a civilization is found already living there, the people on this side of the crack are sent scrambling to discover their motives. Will these parallel humans come in peace, or are they just as corrupt and ill intentioned as the people of this world?

or the exiles from a blistering earth, Mars is a lonely place, made bearable only by drugs, specifically Can-D, which transports those who take it into a shared hallucination of a Barbieesque world. But the new drug Chew-z promises more than that—eternal life itself. But in a world where everyone is tripping, no promises can be taken at face value. When those promises come from Palmer eldritch, who may be human, alien, or god, they can be trusted even less.



the penultimate truth


n the future, most of humanity lives in massive underground bunkers, producing weapons for the nuclear war they’ve fled. Constantly bombarded by patriotic propaganda, the citizens of these industrial “anthills” believe they are waiting for the day when the war will be over and they can return aboveground. But when Nick St. James, president of one anthill, makes an unauthorized trip to the surface, what he finds is more shocking than anything he could imagine.

hitetail Nation is the uproarious story of the season Pete Bodo set out to kill the big buck. From the forests of upstate New york to the vast Big Sky country, Bodo traverses deep into the heart of this lively subculture. he confronts today’s controversies, like deer management, high-fence ranches, and money-back guarantees—complete with good ol’ boy stories that will give any you’ve heard at the local bar a run for their money. Above all, Bodo draws on durable American values, like the love of the frontier, selfreliance, the camaraderie of men, the spirit of adventure, and yes, the capitalist’s right to test out every new high-tech hunting gadget. Along the way, Bodo deftly renders the cultural value of this rich American pursuit, examining that age-old question, “Why do men hunt?”

n recent years, a handful of scientists has been racing to explain a disturbing aspect of our universe: only 4 percent of it consists of the matter that makes up you, me, and every star and planet. The rest is completely unknown. Richard Panek tells the dramatic story of how scientists reached this cosmos-shattering conclusion. in vivid detail, he narrates the quest to find the “dark” matter and an even more bizarre substance called dark energy that make up 96 percent of the universe. This is perhaps the greatest mystery in all of science, and solving it will bring fame, funding, and certainly a Nobel Prize. Based on hundreds of interviews and in-depth, on-site reporting, and filled with behind-the-scenes details, the book offers an intimate portrait of the bitter rivalries and fruitful collaborations, the eureka moments and blind alleys, that have redefined science and reinvented the universe.

The second installment of a gripping new mystery series featuring forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway, from an “exciting new voice on the crime scene” (Louise Penny) “Ruth Galloway is a remarkable, delightful character: brilliant, wry, determined and independent, almost to a fault — yet also a little nervous and awkward. the Janus stone is a must-read for fans of crime and mystery fiction, and readers are sure to clamor for the next book in the series.” — Associated Press


t’s been only a few months since archaeologist Ruth Galloway found herself entangled in a missing persons case, barely escaping with her life. But when construction workers demolishing a large old house in Norwich uncover the bones of a child beneath a doorway—minus its skull—Ruth is once again called upon to investigate. is it a Roman-era ritual sacrifice, or is the killer closer at hand? When carbon dating proves the child’s bones predate the house and relate to a time when it was privately owned, Ruth is drawn ever more deeply into the case. But as spring turns into summer, it becomes clear that someone is trying very hard to put her off the trail by frightening her, and her unborn child, half to death. The Janus Stone is a riveting follow-up to the acclaimed The Crossing Places.

ou’ve heard it all before: calorie counting is the most effective way to lose weight. you’ve heard it because it’s true, and you’re still fat because you ignored it. Lucky for you, Martin Cizmar has come up with the least awful diet plan of all time. if you’re going to make a change, you might as well do it his way. The cool way. The Chubster way. The Chubster plan revolves around calorie counting and enjoyable “undercover” exercise (urban hiking and gum chewing: solid calorie-burning potential on their own, even better together). Martin gives readers the tools to become self-sufficient weight-loss machines capable of functioning in any environment. From frozen dinners and drive-through menus to ethnic eating and microbrews, he offers suggestions for the responsible choice, steers readers clear of the real diet-killers, and dispels some long-held untruths. That Stella you’re holding? it’s more caloric than Guinness. Dieting is never fun, but with Chubster, losing weight can be. you’re welcome.

hipster, but the cool, formerly fat guy


Traditional wisdom holds that paler, lighter-bodied beers are better for dieters. “The darker the brew, the higher the calorie count” is an old axiom you’ve probably heard a few times. As it happens, that’s not so much an extreme oversimplification as it is complete and total bullshit. In fact, the opposite is often true. Let’s look at a couple of run-of-the-mill imports you’ve probably consumed more than a few times. First, consider Guinness Draught. Pretty dark, right? It’s not quite coal-colored, but it’s the darkest beer the average American ever drinks — and that’s usually only once a year, while wearing a green T-shirt with a lewd pun printed on it. But there are only about 125 calories in a 12-ounce bottle of the super-dark stout, which is 4.27 percent alcohol. Now take Stella Artois. The name, translated from Latin, means “star,” and it sure is bright and sparkly. There are 150 calories in a bottle of the famous Belgian pilsner, despite its light straw color. Sure, it has a little more alcohol by volume — it’s at 5.2 percent — but the buzzto-calorie ratio is still below what you’ll get from a Guinness. When counting your calories, you need to look at how each individual beer stacks up, rather than resorting to frat house proverbs.

MARTiN CiZMAR is the popular-music critic at the Phoenix New Times. in eight months, he lost 100 pounds on the Chubster plan. This is his first book. AUTHOR’S RESiDENCE Mesa, Arizona

n audacious and brilliant first novel of two halves, Solo tells the story of a life lived and of lives imagined. Rana Dasgupta paints a portrait of a century though the story of a hundred-year-old blind Bulgarian man, once consumed by music and science, now broken by revolution and loss, living mostly in his daydreams. And it is those daydreams we enter in the second half of the book, a radical leap from past to present, in which children born of communism make their way into a postcommunist world of celebrity and violence. Solo is a virtuoso work, announcing an exhilarating new voice in fiction.

Rebellion is stirring in the Scottish isles, and King Charles ii needs loyal officers to sail north and face the threat. But aboard his Majesty’s Ship Jupiter, the young “gentleman captain” leads a resentful crew and has but few on whom he can rely. As they approach the wild coast of Scotland, Matthew begins to learn the ropes and win the respect of his fellow officers and sailors. But he has other worries: a suspicion that the previous captain of the Jupiter was murdered, a feeling that several among his crew have something to hide, and a growing conviction that betrayal lies closer to home than he had thought.

From the introduction by Lemony Snicket
This book, then, is suspicious. The stories you find here may have been written, as so many Burdick stories have been written, as the guesswork of authors drawn to Mr. Burdick’s striking images and captions. But i believe these are the actual stories written by Harris Burdick, given by Burdick to the various authors who are now pretending to have written them. i have no proof of this theory, but when i questioned the authors involved their answers did nothing to change my mind. . . . Perhaps it doesn’t matter. Perhaps these stories were written by Harris Burdick and perhaps they were not. Either way, the mysteries of Harris Burdick continue, and if you open this book, you will likely be mystified yourself. As you reread the stories, stare at the images, and ponder the mysteries of Harris Burdick, you will find yourself in a mystery that joins so many authors and readers together in breathless wonder. • @hmhbooks • • HOUGHtOn MiFFlin HarCOUrt • OCtOber 97
