Knock Wood

by Candice Bergen

Washington Post Book World "DAZZLING... There is no rank sentimentality here. It is honest sentiment, arrived at after much pain. It is no Hollywood, glitzy-type autobiography, either ...Inside each page is you and I, looking back. Truths emerge here. So does a writer of real promise." The Cincinnati Enquirer "REMORSELESSLY CANDID... as intimately and frankly recited as the entries in a diary." The Boston Herald

Knockdown

by Dick Francis

From the book cover: Mrs. Kerry Sanders, a rich American lady whose voice had overtones of silk hats, champagne, and Royal Lawns, and whose fingers were encrusted with diamonds, didn't think much of the weather, which was very wet. She sounded generally cranky. "This," she said in disbelief, "is Ascot goddam Sales?" It was. The wind was whistling through the ring's wooden O, and to one side of it, in the magnificent turn-of-the-century stable-yard's boxes, were the horses who would be offered for sale last in the program. Mrs. Sanders had asked Jonah Dereham, ex-prize-winning jockey, and now a horse buyer, to advise her-she wanted to buy a steeplechaser for a young man, who was the son of her special friend. They bought the horse Jonah decided on at the auction, for seven thousand five hundred dollars. "More than I authorized you to spend," the lady said. "And your commission on top, I guess, as well." She added, "In the States you couldn't buy a three-legged polo pony for that money." The young man for whom the horse was destined was Nicol Brevett-a hard, forceful young man, with a temper like a flamethrower. His father was Constantine Brevett, and Jonah feit that any woman who could interest Constantine Brevett had to be of a sophistication that would put Faberge eggs to shame. And-well, there was something more than wealth and sophistication involved in this horse trade. For as Jonah started to leave the sales, he was hit a crushing blow on the head, and a voice said to him, "We don't want your money. We want your horse." Jonah had suddenly become more entangled than was healthy in the corrupt and dangerous business the world of the horse buyer enfolds. This is a very exciting Dick Francis novel-and the reader will become more and more nervous as he follows the fast and chilling plot. "The announcement of a new Dick Francis is as promising of excitement as the bugle call to the post. Knockdown is one of his best, and his best is very good indeed," says Heywood Hale Broun. And the London Sunday Times says, "The superlatives for Mr. Francis' books are pretty nearly exhausted by now; so one can only say that this is another wonderfully effective horsey thriller, to do with bloodstock agents-sound stuff, Mr. Francis."

Knocking on Heaven's Door

by Lisa Randall

From one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people in the world, a rousing defense of the role of science in our livesThe latest developments in physics have the potential to radically revise our understanding of the world: its makeup, its evolution, and the fundamental forces that drive its operation.

Randall describes the nature and goals of the largest machine ever built: the Large Hadron Collider, the enormous particle accelerator below the border of France and Switzerland--as well as recent ideas underlying cosmology and current dark matter experiments.The most sweeping and exciting science book in years, Knocking on Heaven's Door makes clear the biggest scientific questions we face and reveals how answering them could ultimately tell us who we are and where we came from.

Knocking on Heaven's Door

by Sharman Russell

On a hotter and more volatile earth in the twenty-third century, humans like Clare and Jon live in utopia, hunting and gathering in small tribal bands, engaged in daily art and ritual, reunited with old friends like the shaggy mammoth and giant ground sloth. Even better, they still have solar- powered laptops and can communicate with each other around the world. The understanding of physics has also advanced. When scientists first cloned extinct species from the Pleistocene, they discovered that many of them were telepathic--that consciousness travels in waves. For most people, animism has become the preferred religion, a panpsychism compatible with the laws of a fractal holographic universe. As Clare tells one of her students, the return to an older, Paleolithic lifestyle is "one of humanity's greatest achievements. " It's too bad that utopia had to come at such a cost: a genetically engineered super-virus that wiped out most of earth's human population. Humanity was shaken by that event, and humanity vowed to change. Now, on the 150th anniversary of that catastrophe, a small group of men and women--as well as a smarter-than-average dire wolf and saber-toothed cat--are suddenly faced with decisions in which the stakes are higher than ever before. Will earth repeat the cycle of unbridled hubris? Or is humanity's destiny even stranger than that?
