These pages are enriched by family photos, dining passages from stories such as A Moveable Feast, The Old Man and the Sea, and A Farewell to Arms, his short stories, personal correspondence, and even a contribution from his last wife Mary. Collecting recipes from former Hemingway haunts, period cookbooks, and other sources, this book is an authentic re-creation of the meals that enriched Hemingway’s literature

Assault on Juno (Rapid Reads)

by Mark Zuehlke

Dawn, June 6, 1944. Off the Normandy coast 6,500 ships carry 150,000 Allied troops. This is D-Day, the long-awaited Allied invasion of German-occupied Europe. The Allies will storm five beaches. One is code-named Juno Beach. Here, 14,500 Canadians will land on a five-mile stretch of sand backed by three resort towns. The beach is heavily protected by a seawall, barbed wire, underwater obstacles and hundreds of mines. Behind these defenses a heavily armed German force waits inside thick concrete pillboxes and deep trenches that bristle with machineguns and artillery pieces. About 3,500 Canadians will lead the way. The fate of the invasion is in their hands. They either break the German defenses or die trying. Piling out of small, frail landing craft, they struggle through bullet- and shell-whipped water to gain the sand. And the bloody battle for Juno Beach begins. With his trademark you-are-there style, acclaimed military historian Mark Zuehlke plunges readers into a vivid and powerful account of the day-long battle that put the Allies on the march toward victory in World War II.

Witch, Warlock, and Magician: Historical Sketches Of Magic And Witchcraft In England And Scotland (Classics To Go)

by W. H. Davenport Adams

It was not the author's purpose in this volume to attempt a general history of magic and alchemy, or a scientific inquiry into their psychological aspects. He confined himself to a sketch of their progress in England and to a narrative of the lives of our principal magicians. It is also devoted to a historical review of witchcraft in Great Britain, and an examination into the most remarkable witch trials. (Excerpt from Goodreads)

by August Strindberg

Auszug: "Gott und Luzifer, jeder auf seinem Thron, von Engeln umringt. Gott, ein Greis mit harten, fast boshaften Mienen, langem, weißem Bart und kleinen Hörnern wie der Moses Michel Angelos. Luzifer, jung und schön, mit Zügen von Prometheus, Apollo und Christus; von weißer, leuchtender Gesichtsfarbe; mit flammenden Augen und weißen Zähnen. Um das Haupt eine Strahlenkrone. Gott Genug der Untätigkeit, die unsere Kräfte verzehrt! Bewegung ins All! Noch einmal will ich zu schaffen wagen. Mag ich, mißlingt's, mich verlieren und unter die namenlose Menge versinken. Seht hin! da unten, zwischen Mars und Venus, liegen noch einige tausend Kilometer meines Reiches brach. Da will ich eine neue Welt schaffen: Aus Nichts soll sie entstehen und in Nichts einst wieder zurückkehren. Die Geschöpfe, die da leben werden, sollen sich Götter dünken wie wir, und ihre Kämpfe und Überhebungen sollen in uns vortreffliche Zuschauer finden. Die Welt der Narrheit sei ihr Name. Was meint mein Bruder Luzifer dazu, der mit mir dieses Reich im Süden der Milchstraße teilt?"

Soft Volcano

by Libby Burton

At the core of Libby Burton's highly anticipated debut poetry collection, Soft Volcano, are the vivid details underpinning the relationships we hold dearly in our lives. A feminist force, highly wrought and impressionistic, surges from these intensely lyric distillations that show us what we look like standing in the hallways of the museum of lost love—where we stand, how our hair looks, what marks of woe and time are left upon the body after love is strained or abandoned. Soft Volcano is a book of vivid and crushing lyric poems, each one a swell of danger, beauty, and truth.
