The second installment of the epic historical trilogy The second volume of Jason Lutes's historical epic finds the people of Weimar Berlin searching for answers after the lethal May Day demonstration of 1929. Tension builds along with the dividing wall between communists and nationalists, Jews and Gentiles, as the dawn of the Second World War draws closer. Meanwhile, the nightlife of Berlin heats up as many attempt to distract themselves from the political upheavals within the city. The American jazz band Cocoa Kids arrives and quickly becomes a fixture. The lives of the characters within Lutes's epic weave together to create a seamless portrait of this transitory city. Marthe Muller follows her lover Kurt Severing as he interviews participants in the May Day demonstration, but she moonlights in the city's lesbian nightlife.Severing acts as a window through which the political shifts within the city and its participants can be seen.

Winner - Campiello First Novel Award; Finalist – The Strega Prize for Fiction. Camelia is a young Italian woman who lives with her mother in Leeds, a city where it is always December and winter has been underway for such a long time that nobody is old enough to have seen what came before. She’s dropped out of university and translates instruction manuals for an Italian washing machine manufacturer; her mother, Livia Mega, once a renowned flautist, spends her days inside taking photographs of holes she finds in the house. Camelia and her mother communicate in a language of their own invention, in which words play no part. The lives of these two women have been undone by a calamity in their recent past, and there seems little or no possibility of ever finding their way back to a normal life. But one day Camelia meets Wen, a local shop owner. To win Camelia’s affections, Wen begins teaching her Chinese ideograms. Through this new language of signs and subtle variations Camelia learns to see the world anew and, in it, a chance for renewal. Stylistically innovative, linguistically thrilling, 70% Acrylic, 30% Wool announces the arrival of an exceptional new talent. A most unusual love story, one as unpredictable as the human heart itself, 70% Acrylic, 30% Wool is funny at times, bittersweet at others. It will find admirers among readers of Karen Russell and Jennifer Egan.

THUNDERBALL presents the blueprint for a monstrous crime that could be just around the corner in history. James Bond is in disgrace. His monthly medical report is critical of the high living that is ruining his health, and M packs him off for a fortnight to a nature-cure clinic to be tuned-up to his former pitch of exceptional fitness. Furiously, Bond undergoes the shame of the carrot juice and nut-cutlet regime—and thereby minutely upsets the plans of SPECTRE, a new adversary, more deadly, more ruthless even than Smersh. Who is SPECTER? What are its plans? Alas, the organization is all too realistically described, its plans all too contemporary for comfort. Of all James Bond’s adversaries, the Chief of SPECTRE casts the darkest shadow.

High-drama history, describing moment-by-moment the fall of the Berlin Wall Thirty years ago, on 9 November 1989, the Berlin Wall came down. This historic event is described in detail, focusing not only on the day itself, but also what led to the wall being there in the first place. It looks at the history of the Wall, explaining why it was built, as well as looking at the implications of what happened in the wider context of 20th century history. Real life accounts are included in moment-in-time boxes, acting as a freeze frame of people's thoughts, emotions and experiences as those from West Germany were at last free to travel to the East and vice versa. Complete with photographs, maps and a timeline, this is a fascinating insight into 20th century history. An ideal book to support the study of modern history in schools

Condensed Novels Bret Harte CHAPTER I. The Dodds were dead. For twenty year they had slept under the green graves of Kittery churchyard. The townfolk still spoke of them kindly. The keeper of the alehouse, where David had smoked his pipe, regretted him regularly, and Mistress Kitty, Mrs. Dodd's maid, whose trim figure always looked well in her mistress's gowns, was inconsolable. The Hardins were in America. Raby was aristocratically gouty; Mrs. Raby, religious. Briefly, then, we have disposed of- 1. Mr. and Mrs. Dodd (dead). 2. Mr. and Mrs. Hardin (translated). 3. Raby, baron et femme. (Yet I don't know about the former; he came of a long-lived family, and the gout is an uncertain disease.) We have active at the present writing (place aux dames)- 1. Lady Caroline Coventry, niece of Sir Frederick. 2. Faraday Huxley Little, son of Henry and Grace Little, deceased. Sequitur to the above, A HERO AND HEROINE...
