Description:
Nathan Staples is consumed by loathing and love in roughly equal measures. He is sustained only by his passionate devotion for his estranged wife, Maura, and their teenage daughter, Mary - whom he hasn't seen in 15 years, and who thinks he's dead. When Nathan contrives to have Mary invited to the island where he lives in retreat, he sets in motion the possibility of telling her he is her father, and becoming complete again. The path to grace, however, is strewn with obstacles. The obsessive island-dwellers are truy to cure themselves through trial by extremity, while in London, Nathan's editor, only friend and one link with literary career, is drinking himself into the ground. And Mary herself is torn between familial love for the two uncles who brought her up in loco parentis, and the beginnings of a romantic, sexual life beyond.

Description:
'Noble Savages is Napoleon Chagnon's equal-time response to the libels that were piled upon him by reckless journalists and irresponsible colleagues. For those who followed the debate it is a welcome summary and for those who did not it is a brilliant introduction to the innocent nobility of the fierce Yanomamo and the pettry savagery of the mean-minded savants who saw their outworn ideologies under attack. Chagnon has always himself a fighter, and this book is his final knockout punch in a fight he didn't pick but has most assuredly won.' -Robin Fox, University Professor of Social Theory, Rutgers University

Not long after his return to New York City from Paris, the fabric of living is rent by the events of 9/11, but like a magic garment will reweave itself, reviving normalcy in a world where Jewish jokes mingle with debates about the problem of consciousness, the price of real estate, and the meaning of modern art.

Description:
At the age of 12, Sydney Henderson pushes his friend Connie Devlin from the church roof. Looking down on Connie's motionless body, Sydney believes he is dead. Let Connie live and I will never harm another soul, Sydney vows to God. At that moment, Connie stands up, wipes his bloody nose, and with a laugh, walks away. In the years that follow, the self-educated, brilliant and now almost pathologically gentle Sydney holds true to his promise. Yet others in the small rural community regard Sydney's pacifism as an opportunity to exploit and torment the vulnerable Hendersons. Raised on the books his father has long collected, Sydney's eldest son Lyle shares a deep respect for the power of words. But forced to witness the persecution of those he love,Lyle turns his back on God and literature and adopts a more aggressive strategy for the protection of his family.
