Description:
New York: William Morrow, October 2001. Hardcover. First Edition (stated) / full number line. Interior pristine. Spine straight and very tight. Jacket clean and bright. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 323 pages. For thirty-seven days after the disputed presidential election of 2000, the nation watched as George W. Bush and Al Gore slugged it out in the swamp. David A. Kaplan goes behind the scenes of the sanctimony and machinations. With his mordant wit and incisive storytelling, Kaplan tells us how -- contrary to popular belief -- the Supreme Court's ruling for Bush was not a foregone conclusion and why the dissenting justices thought, until the last second, they could lure the one equivocating colleague they'd derisively nicknamed "Flipper." We're in the room when Gore decides that, more than any great lawyer, the one person he needs in Recountland is . . . Erin Brockovich. We learn which Bush partisan covertly marionetted the strings behind Katherine Harris. And we're treated to… Read more

Not from a library. No remainder mark. 171+21 pages. The breakthrough story collection that established A. M. Homes as one of the most daring writers of her generation. This extraordinary first collection of stories confronts the real and the surreal on even terms to create a disturbing and sometimes hilarious vision of the American dream. Included here are "Adults Alone," in which a couple drops their kids off at Grandma's and gives themselves over to ten days of Nintendo, porn videos, and crack; "A Real Doll," in which a girl's blond Barbie doll seduces her teenaged brother; and "Looking for Johnny," in which a kidnapped boy, having failed to meet his abductor's expectations, is returned home. These stories, by turns satirical, perverse, unsettling, and utterly believable, expose the dangers of ordinary life even… Read more

Not from a library. No remainder mark. No tears. 141 pages. Introduction by K. W. J. Post. Published just days before Nigeria's first attempted coup in 1966, A Man of the People is an essential part of Achebe's body of work. As Minister for Culture, former school teacher M. A. Nanga is a man of the people, as cynical as he is charming, and a roguish opportunist. When Odili, an idealistic young teacher, visits his former instructor at the ministry, the division between them is vast. But in the eat-and-let-eat atmosphere, Odili's idealism soon collides with his lusts--and the two men's personal and political tauntings threaten to send their country into chaos. When Odili launches a vicious campaign against his former mentor for the same seat in an election, their mutual animosity drives the country to revolution.

Not from a library. 287 pages.In this novel, Africa's best-known writer describes the conflict between old and new in its most poignant aspect: the personal struggle between father and son.

When faced with the disintegration of the old order under the impact of British colonial authority, he finds that his own authority and the allegiance of his son are at stake as well. The subsequent collision of opposing forces makes tragedy inevitable.

Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. xii + 147 pages. At the heart of Origami Bridges is the delicate relationship of trust between analyst and patient, a relationship that grows out of the emotional give-and-take of the psychoanalytic process. In this collection, Diane Ackerman, with astonishing candor, lays bare her desires, anger, jealousy, fears, and anxiety, as she probes not only her present emotional landscape but also her past. And what gradually rises to the surface is an understanding of how the poet uses verse to purge her demons, express her delight, or confess secret longing, and through this process come to a better understanding of the self.
