TWENTIETH CENTURY COUNTRY MUSIC AND NINETEENTH CENTURY AMERICAN VICTORIAN MUSIC STRONGLY RESEMBLE EACH OTHER! (Imagine that!)
This album is a selection of American songs and hymns published mostly during the 1860's and '70s that deal generally with death, heaven and angels. Death and its associated aspects were major subject matter in fiction, poetry, art, and music during much of the nineteenth century, especially - though by no means exculsively - in Victorian England and Amercia. It was indeed a prominent theme in the high art of nineteenth century Romanticism, with its love for the tragic and the supernatural.
Thus, these are songs that remind us of our own mortality, or place our human lives in a grander scheme of things, or contrast the secular and the divine. These do not always have an overtly sacred theme. There are some songs that use ... full review
I really liked this book. I liked the fact that is was in color, organized well and a easy read. A lot of the fashipn or books on color are written in black and white. It is really hard to really get what they are trying to tell you without seeing it. This book is well worth the money. It's a keeper.
"A fast-paced and fascinating story" - By Sophie (Canada)
I really enjoyed "Sweet Revenge" by Nora Roberts. Although it is one of her less reality based stories, her ability to draw the reader into the world she has created stops this from being an issue. The two main characters are likeable and well-developed and the story is full of excitement. This book kept me turning pages half the night! The beginning of the book is incredibly heart-rending and upsetting. The reader is introduced to Phoebe Spring, an american actress who has left her world behind to live with the man she loves, Abdu, in his native country of Jaquir (a fictitious Muslim country). When Phoebe gives birth to a girl and subsequently finds out she can no longer bear children, Abdu decides that he no longer has any use for her. He takes away the "Sun and the Moon" a priceless necklace containing ... full review

"sad and stark; eloquent, elegant writing; a riveting memoir" - By Timothy J. Bazzett (Reed City, MI USA)
I first read Anne Roiphe probably forty years ago when her second novel, Up the Sandbox, was a bestseller. I also read the next one, Long Division, but then I kinda lost track of what Roiphe was up to. Then a year or two ago I happened to pick up what was then her newest book, a memoir called EPILOGUE, a painfully honest record of the year or two following the sudden death (of a heart attack) of Herman Roiphe, her husband of forty years. I was deeply moved by that book, enough to purchase this one, 1185 PARK AVENUE, the 1999 memoir which preceded EPILOGUE. This older book details Roiphe's life from childhood into adulthood, describing in stark elegant prose the profoundly dysfunctional family she grew up in. She came from a background of wealth and privilege, her mother, Blanche Philips, being the heiress to the Van Heusen Shirt ... full review
I was born in 1945, just a few months before the end of WWII. I grew up with the stories of shared sacrifice, rationing, war bond drives, and Rosie the Riveter (who was my mother -- well, not literally, but she did work in a defense plant). This book is an amazing look at the home front during The War (and we always heard it with the Capital Letters). I've read it twice and my mother read it three times before her death; I have her word for it that it is all true. Dennis Mansker www.dennismansker.com [...]
"Praise from a Penn student" - By Charlie (Philadelphia)
I recently moved to Philly last year to go to school at Penn, and I just picked up this guide on a whim. Boy am I glad I did! The reviews of the places I already knew were spot on, but more importantly, it tipped me off to some great places I had no idea existed. I found the reviews honest, concise, candid and often tremdously funny. And they thankfully suceeded to help me find a decent hotel for my mother to stay in when she came to visit. You can't bet that, nor can you beat the restaurant recommendations, which don't pull any punches.
One nice thing about the guide -- one of the things I noticed when I was trying to figure out which guide to Philly to buy, is that this Lonely Planet book covers neighborhoods like South Philly, Manayunk and Northern Liberites clearly, in detail, and with ... full review
This unusually well-written book encompasses virtually all aspects of English grammar. It is well structured, strict to the point, meticulous and most importantly easy to use! It sheds lights on most common pitfalls and errors in grammar usage. People who experience difficulties with english grammar should find this book extremely useful. To my mind, this is a must for all students who seek to improve their language skills and to become more effective and proficient communicators and writers! Buy this book today!
I suspect that for many people in our post-modern culture, the 10 Commandments evoke thoughts of moralizing television evangelists, perhaps disbelief that anyone would devote themselves to such archaic strictures, or, more commonly, sheer ignorance. In any case, that would be to our great peril, argues Chris Hedges, author of War Is A Force That Gives Us Meaning (2002).
Hedges brings a remarkable life story and degree of passion to his story-telling about these most famous Ten Words--mystery, idols, lying, sabbath, family, murder, adultery, theft, envy, greed and, in an epilogue, love. As a pastor's kid, he grew up in rural upstate New York, where his father was a Presbyterian pastor. Five years at an elite boarding school, the loneliness of his childhood, left him with "a deep hostility to authority and a visceral distaste for the snobbery of the 'well-born.'" Six days after graduating from Colgate ... full review
According to Hasia Diner, author of Lower East Side memories: A Jewish place in America, the Lower East Side of New York City is especially remembered as a place of Jewish beginnings in contemporary, impoverished Ashkenazi American Jewish culture. It is within this environment that Cynthia Drew sets most of her debut novel, City of Slaughter where her primary focus concerns the lives of two orphan children, fourteen-year-old Carsie and her ten-year-old sister Lilia Akselrod.
Prior to developing the story of the Akselrod children, Drew devotes considerable ink to the Russian Pogroms and how they affected the Akselrod family while they lived in the Pale of Settlement (a term to denote a region of Imperial Russia wherein permanent residency by Jews was permitted and beyond which Jewish permanent residency was generally prohibited). Unfortunately, it is here where the two youngsters witness the murder of their parents at the hands ... full review
I don't know what I would have done without this book.. she celebrates the amazing moments, and just as importantly lets me know I'm not the only one through the hard moments. Her insight and gift kept me sane.. both after my first kid and now that I have two kids I need to know what happens!!
