Description:
ROY G. BIV - taking its title from the mnemonic acronym for the colours of the rainbow - unlocks a whole different way of looking at the world around us, via the entertaining and exceedingly surprising lens that is colour. What's the average colour of the universe? We might say it's black, but astronomers think it might be turquoise. What are the colours of obscenity, speed, gullibility, or impossibility? How about the colours of playing hooky, splurging, luck or the lack of it? Why can't we see reddish-green. Drawing on a broad array of disciplines ROY G. BIV is an invaluable reference. 154 Pages.Bibliography, Notes.

Skylab is falling, gas lines are long, the President collapses while running in a marathon, and double-digit inflation coincides with a deflation of nation confidence. Nevertheless, Harry Angstrom feels in good shape, ready to enjoy life at last - until his son, Nelson, returns from the West, and the image of an old love pays a visit to his lot. New characters and old populate these scenes from Rabbit's mid-life, as he continues to pursue, in his erratic fashion, the rainbow of happiness.

The Psalms were written as songs; we should read them as poetry, in the spirit of lyric, not as sermons or instructions. But they are also shrouded in mystery, and in this careful reading from one of our most trusted fellow travelers, C S Lewis helps us begin to reveal their meaning in our daily lives and in the world. Reflecting again and anew on these beloved passages, we find both joy and difficulty, but also, always, real enlightenment and moments of transcendent grace.

Georgina Danforth Witley shares her birthday - April 21,1926 - with Queen Elizabeth II, a coincidence that has led to an invitation to a special 80th-birthday lunch at Buckingham Palace. But Georgie has a car accident on her way to the airport, and she now lies injured in a ravine not far from her own home. Desperately hopeful that someone will find her, she relies on her strength, her family memories, her no-nonsense wit and a recitation of the names of the bones in her body - a long-forgotten exercise from childhood that reminds her she is still very much alive.

Translated and with an introduction by Rosemary Edmonds. A prostitute stands accused of murder. Prince Nckhudov serves on the jury at her trial. He recognized her as the innocent young girl he once loved, seduced and abandoned. The setting of Resurrection is the underworld, and Tolstoy turns a highly critical eye on the law, the penal system and the Church. With its theme of fallen man and an emphatically no-Christian process of regeneration,the novel presents a mature panorama of Russian life, shot through with searing spiritual intensity.
