Covers are shiny, square and without wear. The story of two women whose lives intersect in late-nineteenth-century Japan, The Teahouse Fire is also a portrait of one of the most fascinating places and times in all of history-Japan as it opens its doors to the West. It was a period when wearing a different color kimono could make a political statement, when women stopped blackening their teeth to profess an allegiance to Western ideas, and when Japan's most mysterious rite-the tea ceremony-became not just a sacramental meal, but a ritual battlefield. We see it all through the eyes of Aurelia, an American orphan adopted by the Shin family, proprietors of a tea ceremony school, after their daughter, Yukako, finds her hiding on their grounds. Aurelia becomes Yukako's closest companion, and they, the Shin family, and all of Japan face a time of great challenges and uncertainty. Told in an enchanting and unforgettable voice, The Teahouse Fire is a lively, provocative, and lushly detailed historical novel of epic scope and compulsive readability. ; 9 x 6.2 x 1.5 inches; 391 pages; Ships within 24 hours.

112 Azuela, Maiano Los de Abajo
Mexico Fundo De Cultura Economica 1976 First Edition; Thirteenth Printing Paperback Very Good with no dust jacket 
Book Description Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are shiny, square and without wear. First published as a serial in the newspaper El Paso del Norte, in October and November of 1915, then as a book published by the same newspaper, the novel «Los de abajo» has been translated into all the main languages of the world. Mariano Azuela's masterwork came out one hundred years after José Loaquín Fernández de Lazardi's «El Periquillo Sarniento» created the genre of the Novel of the Revolution, as it left behind the norms of the European novel and forged new parameters for Hispanic American fiction. The impact of Los de abajo is owed in large part to the sustained dramatic tension of the novel, from the opening scene to the death of the protagonist - in the same geographic location, creating a sense of circularity - but its success is partly the result of the fulfillment of the title's promise to depict «the underdogs». Who are the «underdogs» but those at the bottom of the social and economic ladder, that is, the poorest and most disinherited. And the «underdogs» in Azuela's story have decided to fight against the injustices perpetrated by those on top. The struggle is bloody, the suffering intolerable. And all for what? All just in order to remain in the same place - as underdogs - after two years of hardships. This attitude of defeat, of failure, is one of the elements that sustain lively interest in the novel and give it permanent value. The descriptions of nature serve to soften the violent revolutionary scenes, and it is this technique of interweaving human actions with descriptions of the landscape that confers an unusual equilibrium upon the novel and has caused it to be considered the best of the many novels about the Mexican Revolution. ; 0.6 x 0.9 inches; 140 pages

115 Azzopardi, Trezza The Hiding Place
New York Atlantic Monthly Press 2000 0871138158 / 9780871138156 First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Near Fine dust jacket 
Book Description Mylar and paper (Demco) protective cover. Dust jacket is intact with no nicks or tears. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are shiny, square and without wear. This exceptional debut novel about family, love, and the innocence and terror of childhood has caused an absolute sensation, garnering no less than eleven leading publishers around the world. Set in a Maltese immigrant community in Cardiff, Wales, and peopled with sharp-edged, luminously drawn characters, The Hiding Place is the story of Frankie Gauci, his wife Mary, and their six daughters and about Frankie's betrayal, gambling away his family's livelihood and eventually the family itself. Written in magical language buoyed by grace, it is a mesmerizing exploration of how family, like fire, can shift suddenly from something that provides light and warmth to a dangerous conflagration, sparing no one in its path. The Gaucis' story is seen through the eyes of Dolores, the youngest daughter and, in her father's estimation, the embodiment of bad luck, condemned to bear the mark of a family that is rapidly singeing at the edges. With a lyricism that belies the horrors she so often recounts ("children burnt and children bartered: someone must be to blame") , Dolores presents an unsparing portrayal of the fear and hopelessness of childhood amid grim poverty and neglect, of children growing up without safety nets and on sunken foundations. The Hiding Place conjures the coarse sensuality of life among the docks, the smoky cafes and bars, the crumbling homes and gambling rooms of Tiger Bay. Sustained by a tightrope tension and combining the stark, youthful wisdom and the uncanny, perfect pitch of Susan Minot's Monkeys with the redemptive liveliness of the downtrodden in Angela's Ashes, The Hiding Place is a breathtaking, radiant debut. ; 8.3 x 5.8 x 1.1 inches; 282 pages; Ships within 24 hours.

116 Bach, Richard One
New York William Morrow 1988 0688078028 / 9780688078027 Stated First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Good in Very Good- dust jacket 
Book Description Mylar and paper (Demco) protective cover. Dust jacket is intact with no nicks or tears. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are shiny, square and without wear. The author of the outstanding bestseller, The Bridge Across Forever, presents his most dramatic and provocative novel to date: a fantasy adventure that could well be real. Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly Readers will need a willing suspension of disbelief to enjoy this earnest pastiche of inspirational memoir/romantic adventure/science fiction, but then Bach's fans have swallowed everything from Jonathan Livingston Seagull to The Bridge Across Forever . Under the spell of quantum physics, Bach and his wife Leslie are catapulted into an alternate world, in which they exist simultaneously in many different incarnations. First they encounter themselves as they were 16 years ago on the day they first met; in this version of their lives, they do not marry, and never achieve the happiness Bach assures us that their real union has produced. Then we see Leslie as a poverty-stricken teenager who gives up her ambition to be a concert pianist, and Richard as an Air Force fighter pilot who will be responsible for the deaths of people in wartime. The adventures go farther afield to include encounters with Attila the Hun, with the "idea fairy," Tink, who wears a hard hat and works in a foundry, with a 12th century hermit who teaches Richard and Leslie that "whoever wants truth and light" should eschew organized religion, and many others. Each of the inspirational set pieces preaches the same message: of the power of each individual to choose the ways of peace, brotherhood and love, to live with a reverence for nature and at harmony with the universe. Bach again displays an inventive imagination and inspirational zeal, and these little homilies can either be uplifting or mightily boring, depending on the reader's point of view. Literary Guild alternate. Copyright 1988 Reed Business Information, Inc. Review "Instead of soaring and diving though space, passengers on this flight must be prepared to cruise slowly, making several stops to look at their motivation and lifestyles as the Bachs look at their own." -- Detroit Free Press. "This is a strange and thought-provoking fantasy from the man who gave us Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Illusions, one that is imaginative, playful, and in places, startling in concept." -- The Anniston Star. --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition. ; 9.1 x 6.3 x 1.4 inches; 284 pages; Ships within 24 hours.

117 Badanes, Jerome The Final Opus of Leon Solomon
New York Knopf 1989 0394572211 / 9780394572215 Stated First Edition; First Printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Near Fine dust jacket 
Book Description Mylar and paper (Demco) protective cover. Dust jacket is intact with no nicks or tears. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are shiny, square and without wear. A contribution to the ranks of Holo caust fiction, this first novel portrays the life of Leon Solomon, a Polish survivor arrested for plundering documents from the Judaica collection of the New York Public Library. The narrative is a prolonged rant that Solomon scribbles while holed-up in a fleabag hotel where he means to end his life. Bitterness, rage, sexual obsession and a considerable amount of psychotic delusion permeate his recollections of life in Poland before the war, of gun-running in Warsaw under the Nazis, Auschwitz and of his failure to connect significantly with his postwar American family. A desperate man, Solomon rationalizes his theft as a scholarly act of preservation. Failing in this attempt to possess the very history that has victimized and crippled him, he sees in suicide his only triumph. Badanes has created a complicated and intriguing narrator, but the novel founders because anger and craziness, even with built-in historical toeholds, are not enough. The horrors of the death camps have been fictionalized numerous times, and will no doubt continue to provide compelling material for writers yet unbornbut Badanes's novel, despite some brilliant moments, fails to move beyond its premise. ; 8.3 x 6 x 1.1 inches; 272 pages; Ships within 24 hours.

Hardback Most Helpful Customer Reviews November 1, 2012 By Cinette Santangelo I was going in for day surgery and didn't want to bring a book I was worried about misplacing, so I grabbed a 50 cent water-damaged library discard by an author I hadn't heard of. I was more than pleasantly surprised to be pulled in to the mystery surrounding the hamlet of Sauls Run. The hospital staff had to pry the book out of my hands to wheel me into surgery, and my first thought upon coming to was not about the surgery's outcome, but whether Harold Crawford would win his battle against Del Grubb! ; 8.1 x 5.4 x 1.1 inches; 281 pages; Ships within 24 hours.
