              Part detective novel, part psychological thriller, Surfacing is the story of a talented woman artist who goes in search of her missing father on a remote island in northern Quebec. Setting out with her lover and another young couple, she soon finds herself captivated by the isola...ted setting, where a marriage begins to fall apart, violence and death lurk just beneath the surface, and sex becomes a catalyst for conflict and dangerous choices. Surfacing is a work permeated with an aura of suspense, complex with layered meanings, and written in brilliant, diamond-sharp prose. Here is a rich mine of ideas from an extraordinary writer about contemporary life and nature, families and marriage, and about women fragmented ... and becoming whole.

              The remarkable and inspiring story of a Columbia undergrad from a poor Jewish family who, struck blind in his junior year, finds the power to break through the darkness and fulfill his vision for a life of great professional success and distinguished public service. It's a bitter...ly cold February in 1961, and Sandy Greenberg lies in a hospital bed in Detroit, newly blind. A junior at Columbia University from a Jewish family that struggled to stay above the poverty line, Sandy had just started to see the world open up to him. Now, instead of his plans for a bright future--Harvard Law and politics--Sandy faces a new reality, one defined by a cane or companion dog, menial work, and a cautious path through life. But that's not how this story ends. In the depth of his new darkness, Sandy faces a choice--play it safe by staying in his native Buffalo or return to Columbia to pursue his dreams. With the loving devotion of his girlfriend (and now wife) Sue and the selflessness of best friends Art Garfunkel and Jerry Speyer, Sandy endures unimaginable adversity while forging a life of exceptional achievement. From his time in the White House working for President Lyndon B. Johnson to his graduate studies at Harvard and Oxford under luminaries such as Archibald Cox, Sir Arthur Goodhart, and Samuel Huntington, and through the guidance of his invaluable mentor David Rockefeller, Sandy fills his life and the lives of those around him with a radiant light of philanthropy, entrepreneurship, art, and innovation.

              Adaptacion al comic del clasico moderno de Margaret Atwood titulo que recrea vividamente la Republica de Gilead como nunca se ha hecho antes. Esta impresionante novela grafica, adaptacion del clasico moderno de Margaret Atwood del mismo titulo, recrea vividamente la terrorifica r...ealidad de la opresiva Republica de Gilead como nunca se ha hecho antes. Su protagonista, Defred, ha perdido su dinero, empleo y nombre, y ahora es una criada en Gilead, donde no se permite a las mujeres tener un trabajo autonomo, leer o entablar amistades. Bajo el nuevo regimen social, su unico valor es ser una mujer fertil, y su unico cometido es entregar su cuerpo una vez al mes a su amo, el comandante , para ser fecundada. Provocativo, alarmante y profetico en muchos sentidos, El cuento de la criada se ha convertido en un fenomeno global. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Everything Handmaids wear is red: the colour of blood, which defines us. Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, where women are prohibited from holding jobs, reading, and forming friendships. She serves in the household of the Commander and his wife, and under the new social order she has only one purpose: once a month, she must lie on her back and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if they are fertile. But Offred remembers the years before Gilead, when she was an independent woman who had a job, a family, and a name of her own. Now, her memories and her will to survive are acts of rebellion. Provocative, startling, prophetic, The Handmaid's Tale has long been a global phenomenon. With this stunning graphic novel adaptation of Margaret Atwood's modern classic, beautifully realized by artist Renee Nault, the terrifying reality of Gilead has been brought to vivid life like never before.Age Range: Adult
