The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared

by Jonas Jonasson

The international publishing sensation--over six million copies sold worldwide!A reluctant centenarian much like Forrest Gump (if Gump were an explosives expert with a fondness for vodka) decides it's not too late to start over . . .After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he's still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn't interested (and he'd like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash, some unpleasant criminals, a friendly hot-dog stand operator, and an elephant (not to mention a death by elephant).It would be the adventure of a lifetime for anyone else, but Allan has a larger-than-life backstory: Not only has he witnessed some of the most important events of the twentieth century, but he has actually played a key role in them. Starting out in munitions as a boy, he somehow finds himself involved in many of the key explosions of the twentieth century and travels the world, sharing meals and more with everyone from Stalin, Churchill, and Truman to Mao, Franco, and de Gaulle. Quirky and utterly unique, The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared has charmed readers across the world.ein's hapless half-brother--are cleverly spun into the raucous yarn, and all help drive this gentle lampoon of procedurals and thrillers."--Publishers Weekly, Starred "Eccentric, unusual and far-fetched in the best possible way."--The Bookseller "Scandi-crime's signature darkness is here dispelled by Allan Karlsson, the eponymous centenarian, who with unlikely sprightliness hops out of the window of his old people's home one afternoon . . . Fast-moving and relentlessly sunny . . . Like Allan, the plot is pleasingly nimble and the book's endearing charm offers a happy alternative to the more familiar Nordic noir."--The Guardian "Imaginative, laugh-out-loud . . . a brilliant satire on the foibles of mankind."--The Telegraph "A mordantly funny and loopily freewheeling debut novel about ageing disgracefully."--The Sunday Times "[A] witty caper. ***1/2"--People "The anti-Girl With the Dragon Tattoo . . . Jonasson's lighthearted novel shows the softer side of Sweden. . . . hilarious."--Marie Claire "This quirky novel is a sly, satirical look back at international relations in the 20th century through the eyes of an old man who has seen it all."--Library Journal

1000 Years of Annoying the French

by Stephen Clarke

Stephen Clarke's hilarious and enlightening history of the love-hate relationship between Britain and France Things have been just a little awkward between Britain and France ever since the Norman invasion in 1066. Over the subsequent thousand years of wars, treaties, and cultural rivalries, the strange relationship between these nations ranged from contentious to comic. From the Hundred Years' War and Joan of Arc, to the American Revolution and the Louisiana Purchase, to the ascendance of Napoleon Bonaparte and dawning of the Victorian era, Clarke examines with insight and humor the misfortunes and missteps that marked British and French--and sometimes American--relations through the centuries. Fast-paced and endlessly entertaining, 1,000 Years of Annoying the French is a riveting history of western Europe's oddest couple.

As the car speeds away, there is only one suspect left behind-Henry. In that moment, his idyllic life becomes a free fall into hell as he becomes the target of a police manhunt, as well as being pursued by a cunning, unnamed perpetrator bent on some kind of vengeance.When Henry turns to a close friend for help, and he, too, ends up dead, Henry realizes he's being elaborately framed.

19 Gifts of the Spirit

by Leslie R. Flynn

CHARISMATIC? YOU CERTAINLY ARE ... IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN AT ALL.But perhaps not in the way the term is frequently used today. Charismata is a Greek word meaning "gifts of grace." It refers to the gifts or special abilities given to Christians by the Holy Spirit--all the gifts, not just speaking in tongues or miracles or healing.* What are the 19 gifts?* Are they all for today?* What is their purpose?* How can we discover and put to use our own gifts?All of these questions, plus a careful examination of gifts revealed in the Bible, are included in this in-depth study, first published in 1974. If you want to know what the Bible says about spiritual gifts, this book is for you.

1990: Russians Remember a Turning Point

by Irina Prokhorova

Although 1989 and 1991 witnessed more spectacular events, 1990 was a year of embryonic change in Russia: Article 6 of the constitution was abolished, and with it the Party's monopoly on political power. This fascinating collection of documentary evidence crystalizes the aspirations of the Russian people in the days before Communism finally fell.It charts--among many other social developments--the appearance of new political parties and independent trade unions, the rapid evolution of mass media, the emergence of a new class of entrepreneurs, a new openness about sex and pornography and a sudden craze for hot-air ballooning, banned under the Communist regime.1990 is a reminder of the confusion and aspirations of the year before Communism finally collapsed in Russia, and a tantalizing glimpse of the paths that may have been taken if Yeltsin's coup had not forced the issue in 1991.

25 Lessons

by Nancy Mehagian Judith A. Proffer

She would age without whining. (Most of the time). She would read until her eyes were blurry. She would love fiercely, laugh ferociously, and let tears fly unabashedly. She would go to nature to heal. And travel with Gayle to let loose. And she would say good-bye with grit and humor and without regret. 25 Lessons: What We Learned from Oprah is an intimate and often lighthearted look at how some of the teachings of The Oprah Winfrey Show influenced the personal lives and career paths of the authors, Southern California friends who, like Oprah, love their dogs, their close friends, a good book, Mother Nature, "aha" moments, and reeeeeaaaaalllly good food. Nancy Mehagian is a teacher, healer, epicurean, and writer (Supernatural Kids Cookbook, Siren's Feast: An Edible Odyssey). Judith A. Proffer is a former newspaper publisher (LA Weekly, Sun Community Newspapers), entrepreneur (Magpie Gourmet Mini Pies), and writer. As unlikely as it is that a dirt-poor girl from Mississippi would become buddies with the booty-shaking star of Saturday Night Fever are the odds of these two friends ever meeting up. Nancy was a spirited hippie who would open the first vegetarian restaurant on the island of Ibiza, hanging out with the likes of Joni Mitchell and Taj Mahal. Judith was raised in Michigan with corn-fed sensibilities and big-city dreams, longing to meet Walter Cronkite (she did) and own her own newspaper (she did that, too). Along the way, they each got a little lost, they each got a little found, and they happened upon an adventurous and everlasting friendship in each other. And it was Nancy, a frequent Oprah viewer, who encouraged Judith, a decided non-viewer, to watch the pull-out-all-the-stops emotional, engaging, enlightening, and entertaining twenty-fifth and final season. Inspired by the lightning-paced illumination they have each embraced and tried their best (sometimes successfully, sometimes not) to emulate over the years, this book was birthed to offer simple and practical lessons that can offer readers the keys to make changes in their own lives. From the searing reality of the importance of forgiveness (essential, but painful and rarely easy) to the creation of a vision board (fun, fun, fun), 25 Lessons delivers tales of compassion, courage, and evolution. Not to mention the smack in the face of instant karma. Oprah taught the world to live, love, and laugh. With 25 Lessons, Mehagian and Proffer share practical tools for living out loud, loving ourselves, and laughing with the whole of our hearts.
