              Only Katy Simpson Smith could have written a novel of such elegance, emotional power, and grace. The Everlasting, a quadruple love story spanning two millennia, is no less than the story of love itself--its frustrations and thrills, its blunders and transcendent glories. Meravigl...ioso.--Nathaniel Rich, author of King Zeno From a supremely talented author comes this brilliant and inventive literary work of historical fiction, set in Rome in four different centuries, that explores love in all its various incarnations and ponders elemental questions of good and evil, obedience and free will that connect four unforgettable lives .Spanning two thousand years, The Everlasting follows four characters whose struggles resonate across the centuries: an early Christian child martyr; a medieval monk on crypt duty in a church; a Medici princess of Moorish descent; and a contemporary field biologist conducting an illicit affair. Outsiders to a city layered and dense with history, this quartet separated by time grapple with the physicality of bodies, the necessity for sacrifice, and the power of love to sustain and challenge faith. Their small rebellions are witnessed and provoked by an omniscient, time-traveling Satan who, though incorporeal, nonetheless suffers from a heart in search of repair. As their dramas unfold amid the brick, marble, and ghosts of Rome, they each must decide what it means to be good. Twelve-year old Prisca defiles the scrolls of her father's library. Felix, a holy man, watches his friend's body decay and is reminded of the first boy he loved passionately. Giulia de' Medici, a beauty with dark skin and limitless wealth, wants to deliver herself from her unborn child. Tom, an American biologist studying the lives of the smallest creatures, cannot pinpoint when his own marriage began to die. As each of these conflicted people struggles with forces they cannot control, their circumstances raise a profound and timeless question at the heart of faith: What is ou

When struggling perfumer Sophie Duval shelters Miss Kelly in her boutique, fending off a persistent British press photographer, James Henderson, a bond is forged between the two women and sets in motion a chain of events that stretches across thirty years of friendship, love, and tragedy. James Henderson cannot forget his brief encounter with Sophie Duval. Despite his guilt at being away from his daughter, he takes an assignment to cover the wedding of the century, sailing with Grace Kelly's wedding party on the SS Constitution from New York. In Monaco, as wedding fever soars and passions and tempers escalate, James and Sophie-like Princess Grace-must ultimately decide what they are prepared to give up for love.

              A literary event-the long-awaited novel, almost two decades in work, by the acclaimed author of The Tunnel ( The most beautiful, most complex, most disturbing novel to be published in my lifetime. -Michael Silverblatt, Los Angeles Times; An extraordinary achievement. -Michael Dir...da, The Washington Post); Omensetter's Luck ( The most important work of fiction by an American in this literary generation -Richard Gilman, The New Republic); Willie Masters' Lonesome Wife; and In the Heart of the Heart of the Country ( These stories scrape the nerve and pierce the heart. They also replenish the language. -Eliot Fremont-Smith, The New York Times). Gass' new novel moves from World War II Europe to a small town in postwar Ohio. In a series of variations, Gass gives us a mosaic of a life-futile, comic, anarchic-arranged in an array of vocabularies, altered rhythms, forms and tones, and broken pieces with music as both theme and structure, set in the key of middle C. It begins in Graz, Austria, 1938. Joseph Skizzen's father, pretending to be Jewish, leaves his country for England with his wife and two children to avoid any connection with the Nazis, who he foresees will soon take over his homeland. In London with his family for the duration of the war, he disappears under mysterious circumstances. The family is relocated to a small town in Ohio, where Joseph Skizzen grows up, becomes a decent amateur piano player, in part to cope with the abandonment of his father, and creates as well a fantasy self-a professor with a fantasy goal: to establish the Inhumanity Museum...as Skizzen alternately feels wrongly accused (of what?) and is transported by his music. Skizzen is able to accept guilt for crimes against humanity and is protected by a secret self that remains sinless. Middle C tells the story of this journey, an investigation into the nature of human identity and the ways in which each of us is several selves, and whether any one self is more genuine than another.William Gass

              A seasoned journalist and editor offers a humorously provocative look at the best worst team in professional sports, the New York Mets. There is a difference between being bad and being gifted at losing, and this distinction holds the key to understanding the true magic of the Ne...w York Mets. Plenty of teams have longer and stronger records of championship futility than the Mets--after all, since their inception in 1962, they've reached the World Series five times and won twice, in 1969 and 1986. But when it comes to losing in spectacular fashion--when they're dead from day one or they're one base hit from the World Series--no one's ever done it better. That's why the New York Mets are the best worst team in sports, their true secret ingredient, the thing that distinguishes the Mets from all the so-called bad teams who stink without charm or interruption. Mets fans are capable of a bottomless optimism even when it's at odds with all available evidence. Every spring with the arrival of Opening Day, we keep coming back, convinced that this year will be our year. Sometimes it is. It's probably not. In So Many Ways to Lose, Devin Gordon takes a clear-headed, fascinating look at the Mets to understand how one team above all others has perfected the art of losing--yet remains beloved by millions. Each chapter tells the story of the franchise's history through the prism of the Mets' singular gift. This version of the Mets' history isn't about the miraculous '69 team or the dominant '86 team--it's about what happened next. Featuring exclusive interviews with beloved Mets including Mike Piazza, Ron Darling, Todd Zeile, Frank Viola, and Mackey Sasser, longtime Mets broadcaster Gary Cohen, and long-suffering Mets fans like Jimmy Kimmel, Gordon offers fresh insight into winning, losing, and what it means to be a sports fan.

              Looking for Calvin and Hobbes: The Unconventional Story of Bill Watterson and His Revolutionary Comic Strip (Audio CD / Audio)

              By Martell, Nevin; Read by Arthur, Jeremy

              For ten years, Calvin and Hobbes was one the world's most beloved comic strips. And then, on the last day of 1995, the strip ended. Its mercurial and reclusive creator, Bill Watterson, not only finished the strip but withdrew entirely from public life.In this fascinating story, N...evin Martell sets out on a very personal odyssey to understand the life and career of the intensely private man behind Calvin and Hobbes. Martell talks to a wide range of artists and writers, including Dave Barry, Harvey Pekar, and Brad Bird, as well as some of Watterson's closest friends and professional colleagues. Along the way Martell reflects upon the nature of his own fandom and on the extraordinary legacy that Watterson left behind. This is as close as we're ever likely to get to one of America's most ingenious and intriguing figures.
