英文概要: Is your investment in that new Internet stock a sign of stock market savvy or an act of peculiarly American speculative folly? How has the psychology of investing changed--and not changed--over the last five hundred years? Edward Chancellor examines the nature of speculation--from medieval Europe to the Tulip mania of the 1630s to today’s Internet stock craze. A contributing writer to The Financial Times and The Economist, Chancellor looks at both the psychological and economic forces that drive people to "bet" their money in markets; how markets are made, unmade, and manipulated; and who wins when speculation runs rampant. Drawing colorfully on the words of such speculators as Sir Isaac Newton, Daniel Defoe, Ivan Boesky, and Hillary Rodham Clinton, Devil Take the Hindmost is part history, part social science, and purely illuminating: an erudite and hugely entertaining book that is more timely today than ever before.

作者介绍: Edward Chancellor studied history in Great Britain at both Cambridge and Oxford Universities. In the early 1990s he worked for the investment bank Lazard Brothers. He is a freelance journalist.

英文概要: Feng Shui for the Classroom combines the timeless subject of teaching with the ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui for a guid to creating a modern learning environment. Let’s face it: These days many factors compete for children’s attention - even in the classroom. Teachers struggle to focus their students and limit distractions. This hip, contemporary book provides plenty of tips for manipulating the physical elements of a classroom, creating an atmosphere that will motivate, inspire, support, comfort, and encourage teachers and students alike. Some examples, "A teacher’s desk should always face the classroom door. Not only will this allow you to keep a watchful eye out for tardiness, but the chi (energy) that flows between you and your class will encourage academic strength." "The more natural light in a classroom the better. Its chi is energizing and uplifting and can inspire students to reach new heights ... Increase light levels with bright pictures, metal frames, mirrors, glass, and crystals. Refrain from turning on overhead lights unless you absolutely need them." Each simple suggestion in Feng Shui for the Classroom brings teachers one step closer to achieving a comforting, effective classroom.

代理商:大苹果 THE SWING OF THINGS
by Sean O’Reilly
页数:    定价:    上传日期:
< /td>
英文概要: Sean O’Reilly’s second novel, set in contemporary Dublin, centres on two figures: Noel Boyle, a man threatened by his past and petrified by his future, and Fada, a clown-like street performer, crazed by his own liberty and poetry. Boyle tries to start again, to erase his history. He aches for space and change, another run at things. Fada - dangerously unreliable and excitable - is relentlessly rooted in the present, hardly able to catch breath within his own chaos of fictions. THE SWING OF THINGS is ablaze with the stories of lives lived and lost: stories of the everyday that become momentous and mythical in their retelling. A girl is found drowned - who is she? Russians in exile are holed up, terrified of deportation. Men are released from prison to find themselves in free-fall. One minute a contented father is hanging out the washing and the next he is attempting to hang himself. A couple fall in love and see a fleeting, illusory glimpse of a future together. A beautiful, life-affirming meditation on the theme of release and what it is that keeps us tethered to the world. Praise for his previous book, LOVE AND SLEEP: "Echoes of Sartre’s NAUSEA, Dostoevsky’s UNDERGROUND MAN and the narrator of Knut Hamsun’s HUNGER this is a truthful emotion-driven European novel by a writer who happens to come from Derry. It is also by far the finest new fiction from the younger Irish writers." The Irish Times " One of the very finest contemporary writers." Alan Warner "LOVE AND SLEEP confirms that that much-fated, falsely-recognised and poorly imitated figure, the True Stylist, genuinely does exist. This twenty-first century picaresque is, authentically and mercifully, unique." Niall Griffiths

英文概要: Set against a backdrop of the Detroit riots of the late Sixties, Motown’s move to L.A., and a car-obsessed culture, Bridgett Davis’ debut novel follows Rae Dodson as she grows up in the divided home of her troubled parents. Her beautiful mother longs for her older lover and first child down in New Orleans, and her father fails to make his own grab at happiness in order to be there for Rae. The almost claustrophobically close, yet sustaining relationship between Rae and her father JD is the novel’s through-line; but the tale returns again and again to the summer when Rae is nine and her mysterious sister Kimmie comes home to live with them, and a chance to make the family whole ends in tragedy. Bridgett Davis is an Associate Professor in the English Department of Baruch College in Manhattan, and the director of the film “Naked Acts”.

代理商:大苹果 THE INTELLIGENCER
by Leslie Silbert
页数:    定价:    上传日期:
< /td>
英文概要: In sixteenth-century London, Marlowe embarks on his final intelligence assignment, hoping to find his missing muse, as well as the culprits behind a high-stakes smuggling scheme.
In present-day New York, grad student turned private eye Kate Morgan is called in on an urgent matter. One of her firm’s top clients, a London-based financier, has chanced upon a mysterious manuscript that had been buried for centuries—one that someone, somewhere is desperate to steal. What secret lurks in those yellowed, ciphered pages? And how, so many years later, could it drive someone to kill?
As Kate sets off for England, she receives a second assignment. An enigmatic art dealer has made an eleven-million-dollar purchase from an Iranian intelligence officer. Is it a black-market antiquities deal, or something far more sinister? Like Marlowe, Kate moonlights as a spy—her P.I. firm doubles as an off-the-books U.S. intelligence unit—and she is soon caught like a pawn in a deadly international game. As The Intelligencer’s interlocking narratives race toward a stunning collision, and Kate closes in on the truth behind Marlowe’s sudden death, it becomes clear that she may have sealed a similar fate for herself.
Propelling us from the shadows of the sixteenth-century underworld to the glitter of Queen Elizabeth’s court, from the dark corridors of a clandestine American op-center to the cliffs of Capri, The Intelligencer is at once a murder mystery, a tale of poetic inspiration, and a richly detailed foray into parallel worlds of espionage and political intrigue separated by centuries.

Review From Intelligence Professionals “An artful and ingenious blend of Elizabethan history and twenty-first century espionage by a gifted and insightful observer of the age-old dark side of intelligence.” JACK DEVINE( former Acting Director for Operations at the CIA)  

 
中文概要: 故事由发生在16世纪和现代社会的故事穿插进行。主角之一的Christopher Marlowe兼具剧作家、诗人、间谍多重身份。另一个主角是现代人Kate Morgan, 他是美国常青藤名校毕业,是个私家侦探。 非常精彩的悬疑小说,另有7小时的CD语音文件。朗读者为Alfred Molina和 Jan Maxwell 。语音极其清晰标准,是英语爱好者难得的学习好资料。

Jan Maxwell 她扮演剧中的Kate Morgan.
Jan Maxwell算得上是百老汇的老演员了。她出演过玩偶屋(A Doll’s House),音乐之声( The Sound of Music), 晚餐会(The Dinner Party), 在卢纳萨跳舞(Dancing at Lughnasa )和天使之城( City of Angels Off)-Broadway, Ms. Maxwell 常在曼哈顿剧场俱乐部、肯尼迪中心、巡回剧团演出。她电视表演方面的名声也不错,参与的有Law & Order 和PBS’s AIDS: Changing the Rules.

作者介绍: Leslie Silbert:Renaissance scholar and private investigator has parlayed her experiences into one of the most captivating thrillers to come along in years. Her boss, a 32-year veteran of the CIA, calls The Intelligencer “an artful and ingenious blend of Elizabethan history and twenty-first century espionage,” and award-winning novelist, David Liss, praises it as “impressively learned and absorbingly entertaining…a fast-paced, engaging, and witty thriller.” Leslie graduated from Harvard College in 1998 with a degree in the History of Science.

代理商:大苹果 VICTORINE
by Catherine Texier
页数:    定价:    上传日期:
< /td>
英文概要: Female sexuality-the driving force of Texier’s abrasive earlier fiction (e.g., Love Me Tender, 1987; Panic Blood, 1990)-takes a much more romantic form here. Billed as a mixture of fact and fiction and based on the little Texier knew about her eponymous great-grandmother, it’s the story of a grand amour and its bittersweet aftermath. The narrative juxtaposes a day in 1940 when the elderly Victorine, living in France under German occupation, goes to the beach with her middle-aged youngest son-with Victorine’s staggered memories of her youth, marriage, adultery, and repentance. The latter are revealed in gorgeously written extended flashbacks in which we observe, in the early pages, a young girl who is "good at pretending" growing up in provincial VendÉe, briefly encountering handsome teenaged Antoine Langelot, then entering an increasingly unhappy marriage to worldly-and rather officiously masculine-schoolteacher Armand Texier. Victorine bears Armand two children, but dreams of a different, more exotic life. And when Antoine reenters hers and importunes her to travel with him to employment opportunities in Indochina, she vacillates nervously, then, in 1899, leaves her family and joins him. Texier shapes Victorine’s Indochina adventure as a series of disillusionments: Antoine’s repeated business failures, his slow fall into an expatriate culture absorbed in the pursuit of luxury and the consolations of opium, the "message" implicit in a text she uses to study native languages ("The Tale of Kieu," a narrative poem about a woman who gave up everything to be with her lover), and Victorine’s own burgeoning guilt and unhappiness. The close comes with her sorrowful (though resolute) parting from Antoine and her return to VendÉe, and Armand. Echoes of both Madame Bovary and Kate Chopin’s The Awakening suffuse a nevertheless inventive and artfully composed delineation of a beguiling and complicated woman’s arduous journey toward self-understanding. A subtly textured fourth novel: Texier’s best yet.

Review
“Catherine Texier’s Victorine is a provocative yet generous meditation on the effects of her great-grandmother’s reckless choice of passion over duty as it ripples through time and generations. Every family has its mysteries and intrigues, but few are this dramatic, and even fewer have been the inspiration for such a vivid and graceful novel.”
——Katharine Weber, author of The Music Lesson and The Little Women
