The art of stillness : adventures in going nowhere

December 17, 2014
Iyer, Pico.
New York : TED Books/Simon & Schuster, [2014]
74 pages : color illustrations ; 19 cm
Going nowhere -- Passage to nowhere -- The charting of stillness -- Alone in the dark -- Stillness where it's needed most -- A secular sabbath -- Coming back home.
"A follow up to Pico Iyer's essay 'The Joy of Quiet, ' The Art of Stillness considers the unexpected adventure of staying put and reveals a counterintuitive truth: The more ways we have to connect, the more we seem desperate to unplug. Why would a man who seems able to go everywhere and do anything--like the international heartthrob and Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Famer Leonard Cohen--choose to spend years sitting still and going nowhere? What can Nowhere offer that no Anywhere can match? And why might a lifelong traveler like Pico Iyer, who has journeyed from Easter Island to Ethiopia, Cuba to Kathmandu, think that sitting quietly in a room and getting to know the seasons and landscapes of Nowhere might be the ultimate adventure? In The Art of Stillness, Iyer draws on the lives of well-known wanderer-monks like Cohen--as well as from his own experiences as a travel writer who chooses to spend most of his time in rural Japan--to explore why advances in technology are making us more likely to retreat. Iyer reflects that this is perhaps the reason why many people--even those with no religious commitment--seem to be turning to yoga, or meditation, or tai chi. These aren't New Age fads so much as ways to rediscover the wisdom of an earlier age. There is even a growing trend toward observing an 'Internet sabbath' every week, turning off online connections from Friday night to Monday morning and reviving those ancient customs known as family meals and conversation. In this age of constant movement and connectedness, perhaps staying in one place is a more exciting prospect, and a greater necessity than ever before. The Art of Stillness paints a picture of why so many have found richness in stillness and what--from Marcel Proust to Blaise Pascal to Phillipe Starck--they've gained there."--Publisher's description.

Here are fourteen plays, from Broadway hits to previously unpublished rarities, that trace Miller's evolving genius as he experimented with new forms and themes. Included are After the Fall, a tour de force exploration of guilt, responsibility, and history that shocked the public with its apparent depiction of Miller's life with Marilyn Monroe; Incident at Vichy, a devastating one-act dramatizing the roundup of Jews in Vichy, France; The Price, an intimate drama about two brothers and their inheritance, Miller's biggest commercial success since Death of a Salesman; The Archbishop's Ceiling, a tense and intricately plotted exploration of creativity and the Cold War; Playing for Time, a groundbreaking teleplay based on the story of the Women's Orchestra of Auschwitz; and many more.

How to speak Brit : the quintessential guide to the King's English, Cockney slang, and other flummoxing British phrases

December 17, 2014
Moore, C. J. (Christopher J.), author.
New York : Gotham Books, 2014.
viii, 119 pages : illustrations ; 20 cm
Previous title: The Queen's English.
" The quintessential A to Z guide to British English-perfect for every egghead and bluestocking looking to conquer the language barrier Oscar Wilde once said the Brits have "everything in common with America nowadays except, of course, language." Any visitor to Old Blighty can sympathize with Mr. Wilde. After all, even fluent English speakers can be at sixes and sevens when told to pick up the "dog and bone" or "head to the loo," so they can "spend a penny." Wherever did these peculiar expressions come from? British author Christopher J. Moore made a name for himself on this side of the pond with the sleeper success of his previous book, In Other Words. Now, Moore draws on history, literature, pop culture, and his own heritage to explore the phrases that most embody the British character. He traces the linguistic influence of writers from Chaucer to Shakespeare and Dickens to Wodehouse, and unravels the complexity Brits manage to imbue in seemingly innocuous phrases like "All right." Along the way, Moore reveals the uniquely British origins of some of the English language's more curious sayings. For example: Who is Bob and how did he become your uncle? Why do we refer to powerless politicians as "lame ducks"? How did "posh" become such a stylish word?Part language guide, part cultural study, How to Speak Brit is the perfect addition to every Anglophile's library and an entertaining primer that will charm the linguistic-minded legions.

Something other than God : how I passionately sought happiness and accidently found it

December 17, 2014
Fulwiler, Jennifer, author.
San Francisco : Ignatius Press, 2014.
248 pages ; 24 cm
Jennifer Fulwiler told herself she was happy. Why wouldn't she be? She made good money as a programmer at a hot tech start-up, had just married a guy with a stack of Ivy League degrees, and lived in a twenty-first-floor condo where she could sip sauvignon blanc while watching the sun set behind the hills of Austin. Raised in a happy, atheist home, Jennifer had the freedom to think for herself and play by her own rules. Yet a creeping darkness followed her all of her life. Finally, one winter night, it drove her to the edge of her balcony, making her ask once and for all why anything mattered. At that moment everything she knew and believed was shattered. Asking the unflinching questions about life and death, good and evil, led Jennifer to Christianity, the religion she had reviled since she was an awkward, skeptical child growing up in the Bible Belt. Mortified by this turn of events, she hid her quest from everyone except her husband, concealing religious books in opaque bags as if they were porn and locking herself in public bathroom stalls to read the Bible. Just when Jennifer had a profound epiphany that gave her the courage to convert, she was diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition--and the only treatment was directly at odds with the doctrines of her new-found faith. Something Other Than God is a poignant, profound and often funny tale of one woman who set out to find the meaning of life and discovered that true happiness sometimes requires losing it all.

Modern American snipers : from The legend to The reaper : on the battlefield with special operations snipers

Martin, Chris, 1974- author.
New York : St. Martin's Press, 2014.
viii, 312 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates : color illustrations ; 25 cm
"Most people think of snipers as shooters perched in urban hides, dealing out death unseen from a considerable distance. But this description barely scratches the surface. [The author explains that] special operations snipers are men with stacked skill sets who have the ability to turn the tide of battles, even when they aren't pulling the trigger ... These are the most experienced warriors on the battlefield, oftentimes the units' best assaulters with years of door-kicking under their belt. These are the men who run ops in small teams across borders, or dress like locals and pull off high-risk vehicle reconnaissance and singleton missions in non-permissive environments"--Dust jacket flap.
