    For eight weeks in 1945, as Berlin fell to the Russian army, a young woman, alone in the city, kept a daily record of her and her neighbor's experiences, determined to describe the common lot of millions. Clear-eyed and unsentimental, she depicts her fellow Berliners in all their humanity as well as their cravenness, corrupted by hunger and then by the Russians. In shocking and vivid detail, she tells of the shameful indignities to which women in a conquered city are always subject. Anonymous was a young woman at the time of the fall of Berlin; a journalist and editor during and after the war. 261p.

    What was love really like in the 1970s? Women were marching forward in the Women’s Movement, ?bringing home the bacon,” exercising their newfound sexual freedom, and still searching for true love. Introducing, Bedroom Roulette, the latest book in the TruLOVE Collection series, guest edited by romance book expert Ron Hogan.Bedroom Roulette is a collection of 13 love stories focused on the changing lives, loves and careers of women in the ?70s. It’s hard to resist these tantalizing tales with titles like:· ?Bedroom Roulette ? The Game Suburban Housewives Play”· ?We Joined Our Teenage Daughter at a Free-Love Farm”· ?The Night My Husband Demanded an Orgy”· ?Why Not? We Used To Be Married”Hogan provides a revealing look at various kinds of love stories from the early 1970s in America. Topics that were previously taboo were now being discussed in ?polite” society. The sexual revolution was in full swing and the feminist movement was taking hold. Pop culture is alive and well in Bedroom Roulette as it gives readers a ?fly on the wall” peek at a pivotal moment in American cultural history. Many of the stories included in this TruLOVE Collection will surprise?and possibly shock--the reader.

    Easy Does It is a slogan and a philosophy of all 12 Step Fellowships. Those who work toward progress in recovery are advised to be patient. When they go slowly--and solutions to problems and situations begin to appear--they can take action. Easy Does It reminds one not to rush the Program faster than it can go, but to grow into the Program. Waiting patiently and carefully is not procrastinating. Every moment spent learning is an investment in the knowledge that one is finding the right answers. Easy Does It is not about being lazy. It is about working on slowing down and taking life on life's terms. It is simply being tuned into the secret of how recovery and life actually work. This book is for members of all 12 Step Fellowships dedicated to a sane and manageable way of life, free of addictions, compulsions, and dependencies. The "keep it simple" manner in which this book is written will help newcomers with the basics of the Program. Members who have more time in recovery will also benefit. As old-timers often say, "We never stop learning. As we will always be a student in our Program, we remain teachable, we continue to open our minds to accept and our hearts to understand." The Program suggests to 12 Step members that they have a quiet time each morning and "dress their minds as carefully as they dress their bodies." These daily recovery readings will guide you in planning and organizing positive thoughts and attitudes as each day begins. At the end of the book is an inventory checklist, the 12 Steps and Traditions, and an index which allows you to use this book at any time to check a topic and gather helpful insight. The Twelve Step Prayer book, a companion book to Easy Does It, provides a collection of the best-loved prayers used by Twelve Step members for your prayer life. May these daily readings help you in the morning, throughout your day, and on your journey with your fellow travelers.--Bill Pittman

  • Lazarillo de Tormes and The Swindler: Two Spanish Picaresque Novels

    These Spanish picaresque novels focus on the adventures of two unlikely heroes - delinquent picaros living by their wits among corrupt priests and prostitutes, beggars and idle gentlemen, thieves, tricksters and murderers. The tales are sharply critical of the Church and the conventions of nobility, and contain grotesquely exaggerated depictions of the criminal underworld. Lazarillo de Tormes (1554), published anonymously, provided a literary model for Cervantes in Don Quixote and describes the ingenious ruses employed by a boy from Salamanca to outwit a succession of disreputable masters. Francisco de Quevedo's The Swindler (1626) is a comic, yet brutal and sordid account of a servant who wants to become a gentleman but ends up as a cardsharp and a common criminal.For this edition Michael Alpert has updated his translation from the original Penguin Classics edition, with a new map, chronology of events, notes and further reading. His revised introduction examines the historical, economic and social context of the picaresque novel, with a detailed discussion of each story.

    Legends from the Ancient North: Five classics of Norse literature that inspired J. R. R. Tolkien's epic vision in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Legendary fantasy writer J. R. R. Tolkien spent much of his life studying, translating, and teaching the ancient tales of northern Europe at Oxford and drew on them for his own writing. These epic stories, with their wizards and knights, dragons and trolls, cursed rings and magic swords, are as fascinating today as they were thousands of year ago. Reading them brings us as close as we will ever get to the magical worlds of the Vikings and the origins of their twentieth-century counterpart: Tolkien’s Middle Earth. Based on Viking Age poems and composed in thirteenth-century Iceland, The Saga of the Volsungs combines mythology, legend, and sheer human drama in telling of the heroic deeds of Sigurd the dragon slayer, who acquires runic knowledge from one of Odin's Valkyries. Yet the saga is set in a very human world, incorporating oral memories of the fourth and fifth centuries, when Attila the Hun and other warriors fought on the northern frontiers of the Roman empire. In his illuminating introduction Jesse L. Byock links the historical Huns, Burgundians, and Goths with the extraordinary events of this Icelandic saga. With its ill-fated Rhinegold, the sword reforged, and the magic ring of power, the saga resembles the Nibelungenlied and has been a primary source for such fantasy writers as J. R. R. Tolkien and for Richard Wagner's Ring cycle.

    Welcome to “East Hudson,” an elite private school in New York where the students are attentive, the colleagues are supportive, and the tuition would make the average person choke on its string of zeroes. You might think a teacher here would have little in common with most other teachers in America, but as this veteran educator—writing anonymously—shows in this refreshingly honest account, all teachers are bound by a common thread. Stripped of most economic obstacles and freed up by anonymity, he is able to tell a deeper story about the universal conditions, anxieties, foibles, generosities, hopes, and complaints that comprise every teacher’s life. The results are sometimes funny, sometimes scandalous, but always recognizable to anyone who has ever walked into a classroom, closed the door, and started their day.           This is not a how-to manual. Rather, the author explores the dimensions of teaching that no one else has, those private thoughts few would dare put into a book but that form an important part of the day-to-day experience of a teacher. We see him ponder the clothes that people wear, think frankly about money (and the imbalance of its distribution), get wrangled by parents, provide on-the-fly psychotherapy, drape niceties over conversations that are actually all-out warfare, drop an f-bomb or two, and deal with students who are just plain unlikeable. We also see him envy, admire, fear, and hope; we see him in adulation and uncertainty, and in energy and exhaustion. We see him as teachers really are: human beings with a complex, rewarding, and very important job.             There has been no shortage of commentary on the teaching profession over the decades, but none quite like this. Unflinching, wry, and at times laugh-out-loud funny, it’s written for every teacher out there who has ever scrambled, smirked, or sighed—and toughed it out nonetheless.
