Description:
New, Bright DJ and Pages, Tight Binding. Minimal shelf wear. Based on the author's own experiences as dresser to Sir Donald Wolfit, this bracing, heartbreaking drama is an elegy to a by-gone era. Backstage at a theatre in the English provinces during WWII, Sir, the last of the great breed of English actor/managers, is in a bad way tonight, as his dresser Norman tries valiantly to prepare him to go on stage as King Lear. Unsure of his lines as well as who and where he is supposed to be, Sir is adamantly determined to roar his last. With Herculean effort on the part of Norman, Sir finally makes it on stage and through the performance no thanks to an air raid courtesy of the Luftwaffe. Back in his dressing room after the performance, the worn out old trouper dies, leaving alone his company and the loyal dresser after one final bow.
"A stirring evening [that]...burns with a love of the theatre that conquers… Read more

In these thirteen essays and one remarkable extended interview, the man widely regarded as the most brilliant theoretical physicist since Einstein returns to reveal an amazing array of possibilities for understanding our universe.Building on his earlier work, Hawking discusses imaginary time, how black holes can give birth to baby universes, and scientists' efforts to find a complete unified theory that would predict everything in the universe. With his characteristic mastery of language, his sense of humor and commitment to plain speaking, Stephen Hawking invites us to know him better—and to share his passion for the voyage of intellect and imagination that has opened… Read more

My goal is to assist you in making an informed and confident purchasing decision**Synopsis..A well written account of how the arms industry in America develops a product. John T. Thompson, the gun's developer spent his life as a professional soldier and developed the concept of the modern sub-machine gun. A combination of peace, poor timing, and Hollywood left him a frustrated inventor who died just before his weapon became standard issue in WW II. The "Tommy Gun" is one of the most recognized weapons in the world and author Helmer writes an interesting account of how this came to pass. This book is very readable for what was originally, I believe, a master's thesis. This book would be of interest for those… Read more
