代理商:大苹果 1808: THE FLIGHT OF THE EMPEROR: HOW A WEAK PRINCE, A MAD QUEEN, AND THE BRITISH NAVY TRICKED NAPOLEON AND CHANGED THE NEW WORLD
by LAURENTINO GOMES

< /td>
英文概要: In a time of terror for Europe’s monarchs—imprisoned, exiled, executed—Napoleon’s army marched toward Lisbon. Cornered, Prince Regent João had to make the most fraught decision of his life. Protected by the British Navy, he fled to Brazil with his entire family, including his deranged mother, most of the nobility, and the entire state apparatus. Until then, no European monarch had ever set foot in the Americas.

Thousands made the voyage, but it was no luxury cruise. It took two months in cramped, decrepit ships. Lice infested some of the vessels, and noble women had to shave their hair and grease their bald heads with antiseptic sulfur. Vermin infested the food, and bacteria contaminated the drinking water. Sickness ran rampant.

After landing in Brazil, Prince João liberated the colony from a trade monopoly with Portugal. As explorers mapped the burgeoning nation’s distant regions, the prince authorized the construction of roads, the founding of schools, and the creation of factories, raising Brazil to kingdom status in 1815. Meanwhile, Portugal was suffering the effects of abandonment, war, and famine. Never had the country lost so many people in so little time.

Finally, after Napoleon’s fall and over a decade of misery, the Portuguese demanded the return of their king. João sailed back in tears in 1821, and the last chapter of colonial Brazil drew to a close, setting the stage for the strong, independent nation that we know today, changing the New World forever.

代理商:大苹果 THE DOVE THAT RETURNS, THE DOVE THAT VANISHES: PARADOX AND CREATIVITY IN PSYCHONALYSIS (NEW LIBRARY OF PSYCHOANALYSIS)
by MICHAEL PARSONS
页数:240    定价:美元   上传日期:2020-1-21
< /td>
英文概要: The nature of psychoanalysis seems contradictory - deeply personal, subjective and intuitive, yet requiring systematic theory and principles of technique.

In The Dove that Returns, The Dove that Vanishes, Michael Parsons explores the tension of this paradox. As they respond to it and struggle to sustain creatively, analysts discover their individual identities. The work of outstanding clinicians such as Marion Milner and John Klauber is examined in detail. The reader also encounters oriental martial arts, greek Tragedy, the landscape painting of John Constable, a Winnicottian theory of creativity and a discussion of the significance of play in psychoanalysis. From such varied topics evolves a deepening apprehension of the nature of the clinical experience.

Illustrated throughout , The Dove that Returns, The Dove that Vanishes will prove valuable to those in the field of psychoanalysis, and to those in the arts and humanities who are interested in contemporary psychoanalytic thinking.

代理商:大苹果 YOU TALKIN’ TO ME?: WRITING GREAT DIALOGUE
by LINDA SEGER
页数:260    定价:美元   上传日期:2020-1-20
< /td>
英文概要: Unlike the chitchat of everyday life, dialogue in stories must express character, advance the story, suggest a theme, and include a few memorable lines that audiences will be quoting for decades to come.The best stories have dialogue that sparkles, but it’s easy for inexperienced writers to fall into common pitfalls like creating dialogue that’s wooden or too on the nose. Other writers end up with exposition awkwardly inserted into conversations, actors tripping over unnatural phrases, or characters who all speak exactly the same way. In You Talkin’ to Me?, Linda Seger and John Winston Rainey are here to help with all your dialogue problems. In each chapter, they explore dialogue from a different angle and discuss examples of great dialogue from films and novels. To cap it all off, each chapter ends with examples of poor dialogue, which are annotated by Linda and then rewritten by John, so readers don’t just learn how to recognize when it’s done well—they also learn how to make dialogue better. Whether you’re writing fiction or nonfiction, for the screen or for the page, this book will get your characters talking.

Of the very few books on writing dialogue, none are as broad and practical as this one. You Talkin’ to Me? is co-written by Dr. Linda Seger, one of the foremost experts in the area of screenwriting and the most prolific author in this area, and by script consultant and screenwriter John Winston Rainey. It’s an invaluable resource for screenwriters, novelists, playwrights, and anyone who works with dialogue.

代理商:大苹果 ALIVE STILL: NELL BLAINE, AMERICAN PAINTER
by CATHY CURTIS
页数:320    定价:美元   上传日期:2020-1-20
< /td>
英文概要: Among the women artists who came to prominence in the postwar era in New York, painter Nell Blaine had a uniquely hard-won career. In her mid-thirties, her horizons seemed limitless. Her shows received glowing reviews, ARTnews honored her with a lengthy feature article, and one of her paintings hung in the Whitney Museum. Then, on a trip to Greece, Blaine developed polio, rendering her a paraplegic. Angry at being told she would never paint again, she taught herself to hold a brush with her left hand and regained her skill. In Alive Still, author Cathy Curtis tells the story of Blaine’s life and career for the first time by investigating the ways her experience of illness colored her personality and the evolving nature of her work, the importance of her Southern roots, and the influence of her bisexuality (and, in the latter part of her life, long term lesbian relationships) on her understanding of the world.

Alive Still draws upon Blaine’s unpublished diaries; her published writing; career-spanning interviews and reviews; and correspondence to and from family members, lovers, and the artists, poets, publishers, rescuers in Greece, and neighbors she knew. In addition, Curtis has conducted interviews with surviving artists and other individuals in Blaine’s circle, including two of her longtime lovers.

Featuring illustrations of Blaine’s work and snapshots of family and friends, Alive Still is a compelling narrative of a leading, productive, and passionate woman artist who overcame the setbacks of disability.

作者介绍: Cathy Curtis is the author of two previous biographies, Restless Ambition: Grace Hartigan, Painter, and A Generous Vision: The Creative Life of Elaine de Kooning. An alumna of Smith College and the University of California, Berkeley, she was formerly a staff writer at the Los Angeles Times. In 2018, Curtis was elected to a two-year term as president of Biographers International Organization (BIO).

代理商:大苹果 FUTURE FIT: HOW TO STAY RELEVANT AND COMPETITIVE IN THE FUTURE OF WORK
by ANDREA CLARKE
页数:194    定价:美元   上传日期:2020-1-20
< /td>
英文概要: In ’Future Fit,’ author Andrea Clarke says that if we want to outrun the algorithm to stay secure in the future of work, we need to upgrade our own capability in ways we may not have considered.

As artificial intelligence is adopted into the workplace and traditional employee arrangements transform, we’re heading into a far less structured era of work. For organisations, it means re-imagining talent models, re-skilling the workforce and re-defining business practices for a digital age. For individuals, it means the onus of responsibility for finding, securing and delivering work lies with us more than ever before.

While the fault-line is clear, so is the opportunity: those who take their ’human skills’ to the next level will be powerfully differentiated in a dynamic and demanding new market.

Drawing on a fascinating international career spanning TV journalism, foreign aid, and corporation communication, Clarke’s new book will equip you with the eight critical human skills we all need to invest in for a new working environment. From Reputation Capital, Communication, Adaptability, and Creativity to Networking, Leadership, Problem Solving and Continuous Learning, you’ll also learn how to deploy these core #FutureFit skills in new and modern ways.  

 
中文概要:
作者介绍: A former television news reporter and Washington D.C. correspondent, Andrea Clarke covered major news events for Al Jazeera English, the Pentagon Channel and the Seven Network before working on humanitarian aid programs to rebuild Iraq, Afghanistan and Georgia. Andrea then led the communication campaign for the Save Darfur advocacy movement. Andrea is the Sydney-based author of ’Future Fit’ who also delivers keynote speeches about how we can leverage human capability in the future of work and how organisations can rebuild trust with customers in the digital era.

英文概要: A massive nor’easter has hit northern Virginia, where Mary Minor "Harry" Harristeen joins groundskeeping efforts at the National Beagle Club at Aldie as the date for its springtime Hounds for Heroes veterans’ benefit approaches. Harry’s fellow volunteers, including her oldest friend, Susan Tucker, comprise a spirited group of hunting enthusiasts, some former service members themselves. But things take a sinister turn when, after a routine tree cleanup along the Club’s hunting trails, retired foreign services officer Jason Holzknect is found dead, throat slit from ear to ear. Soon enough, another murder in their midst jolts the preparations, convincing Harry that the killer is familiar with the Club--and must be close by, masked in plain sight.

The intrigue extends to the grounds of Harry’s beloved local church, where the identity of an eighteenth-century skeleton wearing precious pearls remains a mystery. The anonymous woman’s neck had been snapped, and marks on the grave where her body was secreted indicate that someone recently tried to remove it, leading Harry to question how well she really knows those around her.

As always, Harry’s crime-solving cats Mrs. Murphy and Pewter, and Tee Tucker the Corgi share her determination to sniff out the foes among friends, even those long buried. Harry will need her four-legged companions’ help more than ever: a ghostly beagle only they can see may hold the key to the culprit.

by JANE ALISON
页数:272    定价:美元   上传日期:2020-1-19
< /td>
英文概要: As Jane Alison writes in the introduction to her insightful and appealing book about the craft of writing: "For centuries there’s been one path through fiction we’re most likely to travel-- one we’re actually told to follow--and that’s the dramatic arc: a situation arises, grows tense, reaches a peak, subsides . . . But something that swells and tautens until climax, then collapses? Bit masculosexual, no? So many other patterns run through nature, tracing other deep motions in life. Why not draw on them, too?"

W. G. Sebald’s Emigrants was the first novel to show Alison how forward momentum can be created by way of pattern, rather than the traditional arc-- or, in nature, wave. Other writers of nonlinear prose considered in her "museum of specimens" include Nicholson Baker, Anne Carson, Marguerite Duras, Gabriel García Márquez, Jamaica Kincaid, Clarice Lispector, Susan Minot, David Mitchell, Caryl Phillips, and Mary Robison.

Meander, Spiral, Explode is a singular and brilliant elucidation of literary strategies that also brings high spirits and wit to its original conclusions. It is a liberating manifesto that says, Let’s leave the outdated modes behind and, in thinking of new modes, bring feeling back to experimentation. It will appeal to serious readers and writers alike.

英文概要: Solovetsky occupies the island site of a former monastery in the White Sea. Here, hundreds of miles from civilization, and with a skeleton crew of secret-policemen in charge, some prisoners are consigned to all kinds of forced labor and others sit at comfortable desks in administrative or cultural positions. With the brutal winter fast approaching, Tolya Bogomolov, a young mathematician serving a three-year sentence, hopes an acquaintance he’s been cultivating will lead to a less brutal work assignment, maybe even a little more bread in his ration. Knowing Gennady Antonov holds a privileged position restoring the monks’ seized collection of icons ought to improve Tolya’s odds of reassignment. But when Antonov’s body is discovered floating frozen in the bay, their connection turns dangerous. At first the authorities question Tolya, but then he’s mystified when they assign him to assist the elderly detective investigating the case--but better to find the real killer than have the murder pinned on him. Digging into Antonov’s secrets turns up strange expropriations of the museum’s icons, rumors of an escape conspiracy among White Army officers, and an illicit affair with a female prisoner who won’t tell all she knows. To avoid becoming the murderer’s next victim, Tolya must defy Solovetsky’s unforgiving regime and make ruthless use of his fellow prisoners. Putting his story to paper at last means reckoning the true cost of his survival.

英文概要: After experiencing a series of escalating sexist incidents, Laura Bates started the everyday sexism project and has gone on to write ’a pioneering analysis of modern day misogyny’ (Telegraph).

After an astounding response from the wide range of stories that came pouring in from all over the world, the project quickly became one of the biggest social media success stories of the internet. From being harassed and wolf-whistled at on the street, to discrimination in the workplace and serious sexual assault, it is clear that sexism had become normalised. But Bates inspires women to lead a real change and writes this ’extremely powerful book that could, and should, win hearts and minds right across the spectrum’ (Financial Times).

Often shocking, sometimes amusing and always poignant, everyday sexism is a protest against inequality and a manifesto for change. It’s ’a game-changing book, a must-read for every woman’ (Cosmopolitan).

’Admirable and culturally transferable. "A storm is coming," writes Bates. After reading this book you’ll hope so’ (Independent). Welcome to the fourth wave of feminism.

英文概要: There’s nothing to trace Anna back to her old life. Nothing to link her to the ‘incident’.

At least that’s what she thinks … until the whispers start up again. As time begins to run out on her secrets, Anna finds herself irresistibly drawn to the tale of Maggie, a local girl accused of witchcraft centuries earlier. A girl whose story has terrifying parallels to Anna’s own…

The compelling YA debut from Laura Bates, founder of the Everyday Sexism Project and bestselling author of Girl Up.
