Dream Catcher: A Memoir, Margaret A. Salinger
5 Margaret A. Salinger Dream Catcher: A Memoir
Washington Square Press 241587 New York 2000 First Edition 0671042815 / 9780671042813 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good "My childhood was lush with make-believe: wood sprites, fairies, a bower of imaginary friends, books about lands somewhere East of the Sun and West of the Moon... In real life, however, it was a world that dangled between dream and nightmare on a gossamer thread my parents wove, without the reality of solid ground to catch a body should he or she fall." In her much-anticipated memoir, Margaret A. Salinger writes about life with her famously reclusive father, J.D. Salinger -- offering a rare look into the man and the myth, what it is like to be his daughter, and the effect of such a charismatic figure on the girls and women closest to him. Dream Catcher With generosity and insight, Ms. Salinger has written a book that is eloquent, spellbinding, and wise, yet at the same time retains the intimacy of a novel. Her story chronicles an almost cultlike environment of extreme isolation and early neglect interwoven with times of laughter, joy, and dazzling beauty. She also delves into her parents' lives before her own birth, illuminating their childhoods, their wrenching experiences during World War II, and above all the seeds and real-life inspirations for J.D. Salinger's literary preoccupation with "phonies," protracted innocence, precocious children, and spiritual perfection. Ms. Salinger compassionately explores the complex dynamics of family relationships. Her story is one that seeks to come to terms with the dark parts of her life that, quite literally, nearly killed her, and to pass on a life-affirming heritage to her own child. The story of being a Salinger is unique; the story of being a daughter is universal. This book appeals to anyone, J.D. Salinger fan orno, who has ever had to struggle to sort out who she really is from who her parentsdreamed she might be. 436 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Humble Masterpieces: Everyday Marvels of Design, Paola Antonelli
6 Paola Antonelli Humble Masterpieces: Everyday Marvels of Design
Regan Books 235524 New York 2005 0060838310 / 9780060838317 Softcover Near Fine Condition From M & Ms to Post-It Notes, a charming and insightful collection of design marvels from everyday life, celebrated by the curator of the MoMA's department of architecture and design. Every day we use dozens of tiny objects, from Post-It notes to Band-Aids. If they work well, chances are we do not pay them much attention. But although modest in size and price, some of these objects are true masterpieces of the art of design. Paola Antonelli, curator of the Museum of Modern Art's Department of Design and Architecture, is a highly celebrated figure in the world of design (she was just ranked among the top 100 most powerful people in the world of art). Paola has long been passionate about the subject of everyday objects that are marvels of design. The response to her recent MoMA show, also called Humble Masterpieces, was electric. In addition to lively coverage in dozens of publications, the museum goers spread the word about the fun of learning about and nominating their own picks for humble masterpieces. Now, in this colorful visual feast, Antonelli chooses 100 fabulous objects, from Chupa Chup lollipops to Legos to Chopsticks and Scotch tape. Each object will be portrayed with a gorgeous close-up detail, a brisk and informative text on its origin and special design features, as well as a silhouette image of the object as we see it each day. Certain to appeal to a broad audience, and to lend itself to fun, creative promotional opportunities, Humble Masterpieces will celebrate the possibility of looking at our everyday lives in an all-new way. 208 pages.

Harry Curry: The Murder Book, Stuart Littlemore
7 Stuart Littlemore Harry Curry: The Murder Book
HarperCollins 235793 Australia 2012 073229343X / 9780732293437 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition UGLY. IRASCIBLE. INTOLERANT. CLEVER. The brilliant second instalment in the compelling new series to rival Rumpole and Rake from one of our leading legal minds, QC Stuart Littlemore. A brilliant new instalment in the compelling series that rivals Rumpole and Rake. the renegade barrister Harry Curry and his elegant partner, Arabella Engineer, return with more thrilling spanner-in-the-works criminal trials, every one of them in defence of clients charged with murder. Meet the multiple murderer seeking a discounted sentence because he confesses to killings about which the police are clueless. Pity the fisherman who hated the sea, driven to let loose at his landlord with a rifle, plugging him ten times. And share the sadness of a shaken-baby case, where Harry, ever the iconoclast, takes on the conventional wisdom of self-serving medical experts. throughout these cases and more, the Curry-Engineer relationship waxes and wanes: Harry sells his Erskineville terrace and retreats to a farm on the Far South Coast; Arabella is showered with high-paying civil work and looks set for a life on the District Court bench. Harry's visits to Sydney are few and far between, and Ms Engineer begins to find excuses not to catch the little plane down to Merimbula... Is it Harry's fate to die an eccentric gentleman farmer? Will Arabella decamp with a suitable Indian boy? Can the pair-aided and abetted by faithful solicitor David Surrey-rediscover the spark that brought them together? Perhaps they will-if Wallace Curry QC, from the fastness of his top-end retirement facility, lends a hand.. 342 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Devils, for a Change, Wendy Perriam
9 Wendy Perriam Devils, for a Change
Paladin / Grafton 226458 Great Britain 1990 0586089373 / 9780586089378 Softcover Good Condition After more than twenty years confined behind high walls, Sister Mary Hilary runs away, on impulse, from the strict contemplative convent she entered at the age of seventeen; hits the crowds of London on chaotic Christmas Eve. She has been living in strict silence in the rural depths of Norfolk with just a dozen fellow nuns, has never handled money, never dressed in anything but long medieval robes, yet now she is confronted with superstores and towering blocks, confused by noise and neon, jostled by the rude mob battling home. She has no home -- nor any plans of prospects; has lived for God alone; has lived for God alone; her chief work prayer, her duty to deny and punish self. But can she survive without a self, in a self-regarding world she barely recognises, a greedy, permissive and amoral world, where media hype runs riot, a celibate priest seduces her, and even a Charismatic Conference seems a hotbed of hysteria? Wendy Perriam takes a sharp look at modern society through the eyes of an innocent outsider, a thirty-nine-year-old adolescent, who knows nothing of life or men, and who -- once Christ's Virgin Bride -- now gropes towards as yet untasted pleasures: those of friendship, sensuality and love. Devils, for a Change is the controversial and profoundly disturbing story of a novice in the world, a woman struggling for identity, who ultimately finds healing in a haunting and unexpected finale. It is told with all the wit, verve and uninhibited sexuality which have made Ms Perriam's name. 492 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
