ISBN: 9780061791048
Title: Hotel on Place Vendome: Life, Death, & Betrayal at the Hotel Ritz in Paris
Author: MAZZEO TILAR J


Established in 1898 in the heart of Paris on the Place Vendome, the Hoel Ritz instantly became an icon of the city frequented by film stars and celebrity writers, American heiresses and risque flappers, politicians, playboys, and princes. In June 1940, when France fell to the Germans, orders from Berlin specified that the Hotel Ritz would be the only luxury hotel of its kind in occupied Paris.


Tilar J. Mazzeo traces the history of this cultural landmark from its opening in fin-de-siècle Paris to the modern era. The Hotel on Place Vendome chronicles life at the Ritz during wartime, when the hotel simultaneously served as headquarters to the highest-ranking German officers, such as Reichsmarschall Hermann Goring, and home to wealthy patrons (and the spies among them) who stayed on in Paris.


Mazzeo takes us into the grand palace's suites, bars, dining rooms, and wine cellars, revealing a hotbed of illicit affairs and deadly intrigue, as well as stunning acts of defiance and treachery, in which refugees were hidden in secret rooms, a Jewish bartender passed coded messages for the German resistance, and Wehrmacht officers plotted to assassinate the Fuhrer. The result is the story of The Hotel on Place Vendome-a singular season at the world-class hotel, an intimate and riveting portrait of the last days of the Second World War.

Title: How to be Dead in a Year of Snakes
Author: TSE CHRIS

In his first full-length collection, Chris Tse pays 'proper respect' to events of more than a hundred years ago, interviewing a tragic cast, singing with a chorus and laying ghosts to rest. The 'gallery of lost names' to whose lives he bears witness includes the Chinese miners whose bones remained for decades far from home on the shores of the Hokianga; their countrymen and families; other various ghosts who wander or seek revenge; and - crucially - Joe Kum Yung, a Cantonese goldminer who for a hundred years has been trapped as a ghostly victim by his history, whose name is remembered because tied to another's, that of Lionel Terry who went out one Wellington night 'looking for a Chinaman'. In poems of quietly polished, resonant language and deft imagery, Tse circles these events and the viewpoints from which they could be seen or told, then and now - asking who we should remember, how we should honour the past, and what we should take forward to the future. HOW TO BE DEAD IN A YEAR OF SNAKES is a terrific, lyric, charged narrative - and an unusually expansive first collection.

Living in the slums of Rio and eking out a living as a typist, Macabéa loves movies, Coca-Cola and her philandering rat of a boyfriend; she would like to be like Marilyn Monroe, but she is ugly, underfed, sickly and unloved. She has no future, and no sense of who she is. For her, reality is 'too enormous to grasp.' Yet telling her story is the narrator Rodrigo S.M., who tries to direct Macabéa's fate but comes to realize that, for all her outward misery, she is inwardly free. Slyly subverting ideas of poverty, identity, love and the art of writing itself, Clarice Lispector's audacious last novel is a haunting portrayal of innocence in a bad world.Translated by Benjamin MoserWith an Introduction by Colm Tóibín'Her finest book.'

Stone by stone the basilica was being dismantled in order to be put back together again. Each stone was painted with a number and laid with care onto pallets spread over the ground . . . I kept thinking about those numbered stones. Some purpose began to take shape. I began to wonder if I might re-trace and recover something of my own past, to reassemble it in the manner of the basilica. It was a matter of looking to see if any of the original building blocks remained, and where might I find them.

History of the World in 100 Objects

ISBN: 9780241951774
Title: History of the World in 100 Objects
Author: MACGREGOR NEIL

This book takes a dramatically original approach to the history of humanity, using objects which previous civilisations have left behind them, often accidentally, as prisms through which we can explore past worlds and the lives of the men and women who lived in them. The book’s range is enormous. It begins with one of the earliest surviving objects made by human hands, a chopping tool from the Olduvai gorge in Africa, and ends with an object from the 21st century which represents the world we live in today. Neil MacGregor’s aim is not simply to describe these remarkable things, but to show us their significance – how a stone pillar tells us about a great Indian emperor preaching tolerance to his people, how Spanish pieces of eight tell us about the beginning of a global currency or how an early Victorian tea-set tells us about the impact of empire. Each chapter immerses the reader in a past civilisation accompanied by an exceptionally well-informed guide. Seen through this lens, history is a kaleidoscope – shifting, interconnected, constantly surprising, and shaping our world today in ways that most of us have never imagined. An intellectual and visual feast, it is one of the most engrossing and unusual history books published in years.

Northern Lights introduces Lyra, an orphan, who lives in a parallel universe in which science, theology and magic are entwined. Lyra's search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children and turns into a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust.

ISBN: 9780099485155
Title: How to Live: A Life of Montaigne in One Question & Twenty Attempts at an Answer
Author: BAKEWELL SARAH

Brilliant, original, funny and moving - a vivid portrait of Montaigne, showing how his ideas gave birth to our modern sense of our inner selves, from Shakespeare's plays to the dilemmas we face today. How to get on well with people, how to deal with violence, how to adjust to losing someone you love - such questions arise in most people's lives. They are all versions of a bigger question: how do you live? How do you do the good or honourable thing, while flourishing and feeling happy? This question obsessed Renaissance writers, none more than Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (1533-92), perhaps the first truly modern individual. A nobleman, public official and wine-grower, he wrote free-roaming explorations of his thought and experience, unlike anything written before. He called them 'essays', meaning 'attempts' or 'tries'. Into them he put whatever was in his head: his tastes in wine and food, his childhood memories, the way his dog's ears twitched when it was dreaming, as well as the appalling events of the religious civil wars raging around him.The Essayswas an instant bestseller, and over four hundred years later, Montaigne's honesty and charm still draw people to him. Readers come to him in search of companionship, wisdom and entertainment - and in search of themselves. This book, a spirited and singular biography (and the first full life of Montaigne in English for nearly fifty years), relates the story of his life by way of the questions he posed and the answers he explored. It traces his bizarre upbringing (made to speak only Latin), youthful career and sexual adventures, his travels, and his friendships with the scholar and poet Etienne de La BoÉtie and with his adopted 'daughter', Marie de Gournay. And as we read, we also meet his readers - who for centuries have found in Montaigne an inexhaustible source of answers to the haunting question, 'how to live?'

Title: Huts: Untold Stories from Back Country NZ
Author: PICKERING MARK

If huts could talk they could tell the whole history of the back country. Of Scottish shepherds with a Gaelic brogue who arrived in the high country with the fresh, vivid memories of the Highland Clearances. Of the flush and fury of goldminers and water-racemen in Central Otago. Or of the patient and poorly paid jobs of boundary keepers, musterers and roadmen, who lived in tiny huts in the shadow of huge landscapes. There are over 1500 huts in New Zealand - an extraordinary number, and this book is the untold story of several of them. Remarkably, most of these historic huts still do the job they were built for, whether it's a pit-sawn deer cullers' hut in the Urewera National Park or a tiny skiers' shack in the Craigieburn Range. Every hut has a story to tell. Shutes Hut was built by Alex Shute, a rabbiter and practical joker who lost himself in the Ruahine back country for more than 20 years. Freemans Hut was part of Les Murrell's vision for an amazing tourist track in the Fiordland mountains. HUTS: UNTOLD STORIES OF BACK-COUNTRY NEW ZEALAND is a celebration of the endurance of these huts and the men who built and lived in them. It is a fascinating look at the place of these iconic dwellings in New Zealand's social and mountain history. Everyone who has worked or played in the New Zealand mountains had enjoyed the refuge of the humble hut. They may be only iron, nails and wood, but these flimsy, isolated huts are a living treasury. They weren't built to last, but a surprising number have. This is their story.

Years ago, whenHouse of Leaveswas first being passed around, it was nothing more than a badly bundled heap of paper, parts of which would occasionally surface on the Internet. No one could have anticipated the small but devoted following this terrifying story would soon command. Starting with an odd assortment of marginalized youth -- musicians, tattoo artists, programmers, strippers, environmentalists, and adrenaline junkies -- the book eventually made its way into the hands of older generations, who not only found themselves in those strangely arranged pages but also discovered a way back into the lives of their estranged children. Now, for the first time, this astonishing novel is made available in book form, complete with the original colored words, vertical footnotes, and newly added second and third appendices. The story remains unchanged, focusing on a young family that moves into a small home on Ash Tree Lane where they discover something is terribly wrong: their house is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside. Of course, neither Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Will Navidson nor his companion Karen Green was prepared to face the consequences of that impossibility, until the day their two little children wandered off and their voices eerily began to return another story -- of creature darkness, of an ever-growing abyss behind a closet door, and of that unholy growl which soon enough would tear through their walls and consume all their dreams.

Title: How to Train Your Dragon #1 Hiccup
Author: COWELL CRESSIDA

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was an awesome sword-fighter, a dragon-whisperer and the greatest Viking Hero who ever lived. But it wasn't always like that. In fact, in the beginning, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was the most put upon Viking you'd ever seen. Not loud enough to make himself heard at dinner with his father, Stoick the Vast; not hard enough to beat his chief rival, Snotlout, at Bashyball, the number one school sport and CERTAINLY not stupid enough to go into a cave full of dragons to find a pet... It's time for Hiccup to learn how to be a Hero.
