EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The New York Times bestseller from the author of Help, Thanks, Wow, Hallelujah Anyway and Almost Everything, Lamott's long-awaited collection of new and selected essays on hope, joy, and grace. Anne Lamott writes about faith, family, and community in essays that are both wise and irreverent. It’s an approach that has become her trademark. Now in Small Victories, Lamott offers a new message of hope that celebrates the triumph of light over the darkness in our lives. Our victories over hardship and pain may seem small, she writes, but they change us—our perceptions, our perspectives, and our lives. Lamott writes of forgiveness, restoration, and transformation, how we can turn toward love even in the most hopeless situations, how we find the joy in getting lost and our amazement in finally being found. Profound and hilarious, honest and unexpected, the stories in Small Victories are proof that the human spirit is irrepressible.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

An illustrated journey through American prints, illuminated by the victories, defeats& discoveries of two intrepid collectors. For more than four decades, Williams built the most comprehensive treasury of American prints ever assembled. His 6,000 prints cover both familiar and totally unknown ground. What stands out about their collection is not the expected holdings of iconic images by artists known to anyone even remotely familiar with the field, but the sustained effort to break new ground, to include artists and entire schools of art that have been unknown or routinely ignored--the regionalists who worked on the shores of Cape Cod and CA, in Dallas and Charleston, as well as the Ashcan School of NY. Here are hundreds of WPA artists, supported by the government during the Depression as well are the masterpieces of Bellows and Homer, Lewis and Sloan. Illustrated in full color, this will be judged among the indispensable and totally original print reference books for years to come.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Have you ever felt that you weren't doing enough good, that you weren't doing enough to help others who are suffering? Jeremiah Dreeman had these thoughts. He is a lawyer working for the Legal Aid Society in New York City. Unlike his fellow graduates from law school, he wasn't in the job for riches. He wanted only to serve others, to give of himself. But Jeremiah's altruism was its own form of greed. Where they wanted to acquire more possessions, Jeremiah wanted to do more good. He wouldn't be satisfied with doing his small part, and he was willing to give away his very salvation to try and save all of mankind. But Jeremiah discovers that even being too good can be corrupting, and there is a terrible price to be paid by many.

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A scathingly funny debut novel about disillusionment, indifference, and one man's desperate fight to assign absolutely no meaning to modern life. The only thing Shane cares about is leaving. Usually on a Greyhound bus, right before his life falls apart again. Just like he planned. But this time it's complicated: there's a sadistic corporate climber who thinks she's his girlfriend, a rent-subsidized affair with his landlord's wife, and the bizarrely appealing deaf assistant to Shane's cosmically unstable dentist. When one of the women is murdered, and Shane is the only suspect who doesn't care enough to act like he didn't do it, the question becomes just how he'll clear the good name he never had and doesn't particularly want: his own. “The malaise of cubicle culture may be well-trodden comedic territory by now, but Neilan's debut skewers office life with a flourish for the grotesque.” —The Village Voice

Kurt Gödel, the most fascinating, though hermetic, mathematician of the twentieth century, has just died of anorexia.

To the great annoyance of the Institute of Advanced Studies, she refuses to hand over Gödel’s precious records. Anna Roth, the timid daughter of two mathematicians who are part of the Princeton clique, is given the difficult task of befriending Adele and retrieving the documents from her. As Adele begins to notice Anna’s own estrangement from her milieu and starts to trust her, she opens the gates of her memory and together they travel back to Vienna during the Nazi era, Princeton right after the war, the pressures of McCarthyism, the end of the positivist ideal, and the advent of nuclear weapons. It is this epic story of a genius who could never quite find his place in the world, and the determination of the woman who loved him, that will eventually give Anna the courage to change her own life.
