The people of Stourbridge have long since grown accustomed to the ways of Christina Compson, the beautiful woman who has been so successful in her running of Henzels glassworks. But the mistakes of her past life come to overshadow the lives of Christinas and Joes children. The two eldest, Emily and Paul, raised as brother and sister, were drawn together by the stigma that illegitimacy could bring and, as adults, only Pauls love of glass could have parted them. Christina now recognizes in Pauls talent as an engraver the opportunity to fake Henzels to the forefront of the industry. But first he must visit his grandfathers glasshouse in France, to learn the least techniques despite fierce opposition from Emily; She knew that if he went she would lose her dearest friend, the man she had grown to love as more than a brother.
Do you remember your first time? People tend to remember the moment they first heard The Rush Limbaugh Show on the radio. For Zev Chafets, it was in a car in Detroit, driving down Woodward Avenue. Limbaugh's braggadocio, the outrageous satire, the slaughtering of liberal sacred cows performed with the verve of a rock-n-roll DJ-it seemed fresh, funny and completely subversive. "They're never going to let this guy stay on the air," he thought. Almost two decades later Chafets met Rush for the first time, at Limbaugh's rarely visited "Southern Command." They spent hours together talking on the record about politics, sports, music, show business, religion and modern American history. Rush opened his home and his world, introducing Chafets to his family, closest friends, even his psychologist. The result was an acclaimed cover-story profile of Limbaugh in The New York Times Magazine. But there was much more to say, especially after Limbaugh became Public Enemy Number One of the Obama Administration. At first Limbaugh resisted the idea of a full-length portrait, but he eventually invited Chafets back to Florida and exchanged more than a hundred emails full of his personal history, thoughts, fears and ambitions. What has emerged is an uniquely personal look at the man who is not only the most popular voice on the radio, but the leader of the conservative movement and one of the most influential figures in the Republican Party. While Limbaugh's public persona is instantly recognizable, his background and private life are often misunderstood. Even devoted Dittoheads will find there's a lot they don't know about the self-described "harm little fuzzball" who has, over the years, taken on the giants of the mainstream media and the Democratic Party-from Bill and Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama-with "half his brain tied behind his back, just to make it fair." Chafets paints a compelling portrait of Limbaugh as a master entertainer, a public intellectual, a political force, and a fascinating man.

This brilliant blend of history, biography, and criticism explores the seminal figures of twentieth-century French art—Matisse, Picasso, Derain, Léger, Dufy, Braque, Giacometti, Balthus, and Hélion—and the vital art world in which they thrived. The ten interlocking essays in this important book include radical new evaluations of Derain, Léger, and Dufy, and penetrating studies of the final works of Picasso and Braque. Paris Without End, Jed Perl’s first book, is now celebrating its twenty-fifth anniversary and is essential reading for anyone passionate about modern art. Roberta Smith called it “a quiet, cogent tour de force. . . . As one critic’s demonstration of what he considers the best in art and the best way to write about it, this book sets a high standard.” Hilton Kramer also noted, “Everyone who cares about the art of the twentieth century will find something to disagree with in this book—its many unorthodox judgments are bound to be controversial—but that, in my view, is a mark of the book’s importance.”
Em 1969, prestes a completar 14 anos, Rosália Araújo foi contratada para servir António de Oliveira Salazar. Durante anos, conheceu a vida doméstica do palacete de São Bento, liderada pela severa dona Maria, e o lado mais privado do Presidente do Conselho, com os seus hábitos, gostos, desgostos e segredos. No momento da sua morte, em 1970 foi a única empregada presente no quarto do ditador. A Última Criada de Salazar é o relato minucioso da decadência e dos dias do fim do homem que alcançou o poder em 1932 e só o perdeu três décadas mais tarde.
