Book Excerpt :

The best-selling novelist and memoirist delivers her most intimate and powerful work: a piercing, life-affirming memoir about marriage and memory, about the frailty and elasticity of our most essential bonds, and about the accretion, over time, of both sorrow and love. Hourglass is an inquiry into how marriage is transformed by time--abraded, strengthened, shaped in miraculous and sometimes terrifying ways by accident and experience. With courage and relentless honesty, Dani Shapiro opens the door to her house, her marriage, and her heart, and invites us to witness her own marital reckoning--a reckoning in which she confronts both the life she dreamed of and the life she made, and struggles to reconcile the girl she was with the woman she has become. What are the forces that shape our most elemental bonds? How do we make lifelong commitments in the face of identities that are continuously shifting, and commit ourselves for all time when the self is so often in flux? What happens to love in the face of the unexpected, in the face of disappointment and compromise--how do we wrest beauty from imperfection, find grace in the ordinary, desire what we have rather than what we lack? Drawing on literature, poetry, philosophy, and theology, Shapiro writes gloriously of the joys and challenges of matrimonial life, in a luminous narrative that unfurls with urgent immediacy and sharp intelligence. Artful, intensely emotional work from one of our finest writers.

Book Short Summary:

For decades Hudich, the leader of an evil army, had been held prisoner in a world called Pekel. Before releasing him last summer to save Max's friend Cindy, Max's grandfather neutralized Hudich's magical powers with the aid of an advanced high-tech collar. Unfortunately, Hudich's escape allowed him to relay a centuries-old secret to his followers that helps them find a powerful weapon. With the aid of this new weapon, an ancient magical gateway, the enemy kidnaps Max's mother and forces him to do their bidding by threatening to kill her. To keep his mother alive, Max will embark on another perilous adventure into new worlds with hidden dangers. Convinced there is a spy among his friends, Max must decide who he can trust, if anyone, in his attempts to rescue his mother and destroy the enemy's plans.

Book Short Summary:

Seventy-five million baby boomers are finding themselves bound by habits and pursuits instigated many years ago -- and for a large percentage of those boomers, significant aspects of their lives no longer satisfy. But by joining revolutionary insight to highly proprietary prescriptive advice, The Hourglass Solution provides a proactive and pragmatic way to lead a better life after 50. Johnson and Forman evaluate the life narrative through the lens of an hourglass -- proposing that those in early adulthood are at the top of the hourglass, able to select from many options, while those in middle age are in the hourglass's neck, constrained by the choices they made earlier in their lives. The Hourglass Solution explains how those approaching their fifties (and beyond) can still find a wealth of opportunity by recognizing and pursuing new directions, free from the restrictions imposed by an earlier choice. Like Gail Sheehy's Passages before it, The Hourglass Solution will enlighten and inspire a generation of readers to regain control over their lives and well-being.

Book Short Summary:

Snake venom that digests human flesh. A building cleared of every living thing by a band of tiny spiders. An infant insect eating its living prey from within, saving the vital organs for last. These are among the deadly feats of natural engineering you'll witness in The Red Hourglass, prize-winning author Gordon Grice's masterful, poetic, often dryly funny exploration of predators he has encountered around his rural Oklahoma home. Grice is a witty and intrepid guide through a world where mating ends in cannibalism, where killers possess toxins so lethal as to defy our ideas of a benevolent God, where spider remains, scattered like "the cast-off coats of untidy children," tell a quiet story of violent self-extermination. It's a world you'll recognize despite its exotic strangeness--the world in which we live. Unabashedly stepping into the mix, Grice abandons his role as objective observer with beguiling dark humor--collecting spiders and other vermin, decorating a tarantula's terrarium with dollhouse furniture, or forcing a battle between captive insects because he deems one "too stupid to live." Kill. Eat. Mate. Die. Charting the simple brutality of the lives of these predators, Grice's starkly graceful essays guide us toward startling truths about our own predatory nature. The Red Hourglass brings us face to fanged face with the inadequacy of our distinctions between normal and abnormal, dead and alive, innocent and evil.

Book Short Summary:

As Rune Saint John grapples with the challenges of assuming the Sun Throne, a powerful barrier appears around New Atlantis’s famed rejuvenation center. But who could have created such formidable magic . . . what do they want from the immortality clinic . . . and what remains of the dozens trapped inside? Though Rune and his lifelong bodyguard Brand are tasked with investigating the mysterious barrier, Rune is also busy settling into his new life at court. Claiming his father’s throne has irrevocably thrown him into the precarious world of political deception, and he must secure relationships with newfound allies in time to keep his growing found family safe. His relationship with his lover, Addam Saint Nicholas, raises additional political complications they must navigate. But he and Brand soon discover that the power behind the barrier holds a much more insidious, far-reaching threat to his family, to his people, and to the world. Now, the rulers of New Atlantis must confront an enemy both new and ancient as the flow of time itself is drawn into the conflict. And as Rune finds himself inexorably drawn back to the fall of his father’s court and his own torture at the hands of masked conspirators, the secrets that he has long guarded will be dragged into the light—changing the Sun Throne, and New Atlantis, forever. The climax of the first trilogy in the nine-book Tarot Sequence, The Hourglass Throne delivers epic urban fantasy that blends humor, fast-paced action, and political intrigue.

Book Short Summary:

Legend has it that Aztec Indians used gold from their El Dorado claim to build their seven cities of gold. When the Spanish conquistadores came to the Western hemisphere in the 1520s, the Indians flooded their mine. Its location remained a secret until the days of the California Gold Rush, when the Dutchman Mining Company may have rediscovered it. After a short time, a powerful earthquake caused the mine to become lost again. Suddenly, on March 6, 1989, a new entrance to that mine was revealed once more when two construction workers who were excavating a foundation fell into a pit and were killed. The accident occurred on the grounds of the naval training base of Fort Warren, outside of San Diego, along the beautiful Pacific coast. Secret mining operations resumed with government money stolen from the construction project. Shortly thereafter, the discovery of an antique golden hourglass unlocks an adventure tale of cover-ups, greed, kidnapping, and murder. Both naval and civilian personnel face unusual challenges and must make an ultimate sacrifice to appease an ancient Aztec curse.

Book Short Summary:

Like the hourglass, astrology has been used to keep track of time since the beginning of civilization. While some have sought to debunk its science, it has stood the test of time. It’s not a belief or superstition limited to frivolous horoscopes, and this book explains why. Theresa H. McDevitt, a professional astrological counselor, presents cold hard facts that can be verified through observation and by studying history. She examines: • planetary cycles and their connection to life expectancy; • cosmic energy and how it affects every organism on Earth; and • generational life cycles and the legacies that individuals leave behind. The author also goes beyond history to show the hidden powers behind the functional workings of the world and humanity—the how, when, and why everything happens. By gaining a clear picture of what you’ll encounter from birth to death, you’ll be empowered to contribute more to the world.

Book Short Summary:

The poems in this collection have to do with the passing of time-its relentlessness, speed and events-and people facing sadness, humor, joy, social upheavals such as wars, inequities, corruption, goodness, apprehensions about life and death, love, hatred, dreams, disappointments, fears, injustices, blessings, sacrifice, sloth, industriousness, physical impairments/strengths, spirituality, God, worry, specific battles in various wars, elation, jealousy, greed, generosity, meanness, aging-in short, the everyday happenings/abstractions that, totaled, simply make life what it is for everyone, both individually and collectively. While the book includes both free verse and traditional poetry as defined consensually, most of the poems feature rhythm and rhyme, not the sing-song type of thing, but serious and consistent style presenting subjects in a manner conducive to reading them aloud and remembering. Though this is a departure from the styles mostly in vogue today, it features form that has withstood the testing of time while demanding more of the creator, just as in the case of classical music-perhaps an interesting change of pace for the reader.

Book Short Summary:

Spring 2000. Paul Geddes visits Venice to research the fin-de-siècle opera singer, Esme Maguire, seeking out a cache of papers held by Eva Forrest, the widow of a collector. What he reads begins in the 1680s, moving through the city’s later history of Enlightenment and Revolution, describing a life stretched beyond human possibilities. She travels across Europe to sing in Regency London and Edinburgh, then Belle Epoque Paris, always returning to Venice, its shadows and its luminosity, its changes and its permanence. What would it be like to live for nearly 300 years, as an exceptional being who must renew herself time after time, as those she has loved age and die? Could this story be grounded in reality or be merely the product of an ageing woman’s delusion, as Paul suspects. Warily, Eva and Paul fall in love, their tentative emotions bringing them closer until, on a trip to the Dolomites, Eva’s past catches up with her.

Book Short Summary:

When Janice learns that she has stage four cancer, she feels the sand in life’s hourglass begin to escape through her fingers. A successful trial lawyer, she’s spent her entire adulthood competing, clock watching, and chasing the money while life slipped by unnoticed. But this diagnosis leaves her questioning whether it’s all been worth it. In this candid memoir, Janice reflects on the choices she made throughout her life to bring her to this point. She offers an insider’s view of Big Law and questions corporate America’s relationship with wealth and excess. She examines how one’s longing for approval—from family or elsewhere—comes at the expense of knowing what we want and being our true selves. And she discovers that the remedy is a long, hard road to travel. Earnest, tender, and eye-opening, Life’s Hourglass inspires readers to ask themselves, “How do I want to spend the days I have remaining?”
