1986年4月29日上午,洛杉磯中央圖書館火警鈴聲大作。當日大火成災:現場將近一千度高溫,燒了七個小時,整座圖書館付之一炬,總計四十萬本藏書遭烈火吞噬,外加七十萬本書受到毀損。儘管調查人員勘驗過火場,直到今天,三十多年過去了,人們仍不免好奇:真的有人蓄意放火燒了圖書館嗎─果真如此,誰會幹這種事呢?   獲獎無數的《紐約客》知名記者和《紐約時報》暢銷書作者蘇珊‧歐琳,憑藉對書籍和閱讀的狂熱投入這場圖書館大火調查。焚書燒館不啻為對人類心靈最具摧毀力的行動。為何最安全、最開放的場所會發生最危險的事件?歐琳以獨樹一幟的觀察力和敘事天賦,從個人的圖書館經驗,結合實地探訪,記錄央圖大火現場和後續種種餘波蕩漾。甚至親自嘗試燒一本書瞭解箇中滋味,天馬行空的神來之筆,笑到岔氣。既寫出了一本扣人心弦的調查報告,也是一本「趣味盎然」的圖書館之書。   野心勃勃的調查蒐證,精巧細緻的文筆,構築一道深入圖書館歷史、戲劇、文化和人物故事的通道。蘇珊‧歐琳為讀者披沙瀝金,一一舉證,這些受人愛戴的圖書館除了借書之外,還有無數服務市民的方式,並在其心智和靈魂上扮演舉足輕重的角色。全書洞見之豐富,寶物之多,作者行筆如火,從遠古焚書悲劇跳躍至當前書籍修復的最新手法,從洛杉磯央圖的沿革及演進,延伸探討圖書館在美國與全球各地的演變。還有與母親的感人故事……一場毀滅性火災的探索,變成一次進入無限豐富世界的旅程,裡面充滿意想不到的人物,發生著意想不到的事情,懷著意想不到的激情。 從來沒有一本書如此廣泛地捕捉圖書館員們的故事。那些日夜逡巡書區、克盡職守的身影,在書中都成了搖滾巨星。蘇珊‧歐琳總是對寫作的主題抱持極大的熱情,並充滿幽默感,眼見圖書館各部門百態躍然紙上,正是這些愛書的靈魂使圖書館成為市民心中無可取代的公共空間,一處現代人心靈的庇護所。

艾文曾經想要努力「參與」生活——例如,接近同學,但同學從來不會離他很近;媽媽嘴裡說他很棒,眼神卻透露完全相反的心思。至於父親,只是在遠方不停要他看繼母的孩子照片。直至意外從樹上跌下、摔斷手的那一天,艾文發現他身邊只有一個人—他自己。 依照心理醫師的建議,艾文練習寫給自己的一封信,竟然意外公諸於世;接連而來的是怪咖同學康納的離世,迫使艾文成為康納家庭的好朋友,也促成他從角落走向聚光燈下。這一切究竟是夢幻、謊言,還是艾文沒有勇氣面對的真實人生……。 跌下大樹時、孤單一人躺在地上的艾文,望向無邊際的晴朗天空,他發現終於有機會不再需要屈服於過往的陰霾,只是在掙扎中,為什麼謊言總是掩蓋想說出真相的勇氣?是不是原本每一個想放棄生命的背後,其實都有與外界連結的渴望。但,孤單的靈魂們又該如何才能逆轉人生,尋得最後的歸屬感……。

在男人眼中,女人往往囉嗦、愛抱怨又情緒化;而在女人心裡,男人則總是心不在焉、不講道理,永遠搞不懂自己要的是什麼。為什麼男人與女人的想法會差異這麼大,不管在一起多久都還是無法互相理解呢?   這是因為人類的大腦受到「感性的束縛」,無論如何都會認定自己是對的,把對方當成笨蛋。而大部分的男性偏向重視結果的「解決問題型」大腦,女性則偏向重視過程的「共感型」大腦,面對同樣的問題,彼此的解讀卻南轅北轍,造成有「溝」沒有「通」,壓力也跟著越來越大。   但要怎樣才能解開「感性的束縛」呢?本書作者便根據多年的腦科學研究,分享了四個共感技巧,並提出以「壓力平衡」來取代「任務平衡」的新觀念,以及跟男性說話時的「三秒守則」、女人的「三點笑臉主義」……等多種實用招數,幫助你有效化解溝通障礙。   不論你是「男性腦」還是「女性腦」,只要好好掌握「心的脈絡」,學習開啟「心的對話」,不僅能幫助你更加了解自己,更能立刻改善情人、夫妻乃至朋友、同事之間的人際關係,打開「改變人生的大門」!

A grey tsunami is sweeping the land, wreaking social and financial havoc in its wake. Sound familiar? This myth about aging, along with twenty-eight others, is the focus of Getting Wise about Getting Old, which paints a far more accurate and nuanced portrait of old age. In it, experts debunk myths and persistent stereotypes about aging on a broad array of social issues – from retirement (seniors are low-performance workers) to housing (most older adults live in long-term care accommodation), and violence (senior women are not victims of sexual assault) to political participation (seniors are conservative and resistant to change) – deconstructing and countering them with the latest findings. The work of two leading research groups in Quebec, the short and accessible chapters of this vitally important book contribute to a better understanding of the social challenges, as well as the advantages, of an aging society.

Their audience gets invested fast, and it's not long before The Ex Talk becomes a must-listen in Seattle and climbs podcast charts.

A deeply funny and shrewdly observed debut novel about being lost in the very place you know by heart. Bennett Driscoll is a Turner Prize-nominated artist who was once a rising star. Now, at age fifty-five, his wife has left him, he hasn't sold a painting in two years, and his gallery wants to stop selling his work, claiming they'll have more value retrospectively...when he's dead. So, left with a large West London home and no income, he's forced to move into his artist's studio in the back garden and list his house on the popular vacation rental site, AirBed. A stranger now in his own home, with his daughter, Mia, off at art school, and any new relationships fizzling out at best, Bennett struggles to find purpose in his day-to-day. That all changes when three different guests--lonely American Alicia; tortured artist Emma; and cautiously optimistic divorcée Kirstie--unwittingly unlock the pieces of himself that have been lost to him for too long. Warm, witty, and utterly humane, Super Host offers a captivating portrait of middle age, relationships, and what it truly means to take a new chance at life.

Lucy Stone's late-winter blues usually vanish by the time Tinker's Cove goes green for its annual St. Patrick's Day celebration. There's just one wee problem that not even the luck of the Irish can fix--murder! After returning from her father-in-law's funeral in Florida, Lucy can almost hear the death knell of her part-time reporter job the instant she meets new hire Rob Callahan. He's young, ambitious, and positioning himself to become the Pennysaver's next star reporter. Adding insult to injury, Lucy only gets assigned the local St. Patrick's Day parade once Rob passes on the story. But before beer flows and bagpipes sound, Rob becomes suspected of destroying more than other people's careers... It's a shock when Rob is suddenly charged with sending a corrections officer from town to a fiery death. Contrary to the evidence, Lucy seriously doubts her office rival committed murder, and she's willing to follow that nagging hunch into the darkest corners of the community if it means shedding light on the truth... As an unnerving mystery unfolds, a strange woman reveals news that could change everything for Lucy and her family. Troubles in her personal and professional life are colliding, and Lucy comes to realize that she'll sooner discover a four-leaf clover than confront a killer with the gift of the gab and live to tell about it...

  • ISBN:9781984822017
  • 點閱率:55

A magnificent generational saga that charts a family’s rise and fall, its secrets and inherited crimes, from one of Canada’s most acclaimed novelists It’s 2038 and Jacinda (Jake) Greenwood is a storyteller and a liar, an overqualified tour guide babysitting ultra-rich vacationers in one of the world’s last remaining forests. It’s 2008 and Liam Greenwood is a carpenter, sprawled on his back after a workplace fall, calling out from the concrete floor of an empty mansion. It’s 1974 and Willow Greenwood is out of jail, free after being locked up for one of her endless series of environmental protests: attempts at atonement for the sins of her father’s once vast and violent timber empire. It’s 1934 and Everett Greenwood is alone, as usual, in his maple-syrup camp squat, when he hears the cries of an abandoned infant and gets tangled up in the web of a crime, secrets, and betrayal that will cling to his family for decades. And throughout, there are trees: a steady, silent pulse thrumming beneath Christie’s effortless sentences, working as a guiding metaphor for withering, weathering, and survival. A shining, intricate clockwork of a novel, Greenwood is a rain-soaked and sun-dappled story of the bonds and breaking points of money and love, wood, and blood—and the hopeful, impossible task of growing toward the light.

From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, an atmospheric, tender tale of love and loss set in 1969 rural Kentucky. There, a young girl named RubyLyn is subjected to grueling labor by her God-fearing uncle, and strives to find a ray of hope in her poverty-stricken town through her own tobacco patch, a forbidden first love, and her home-made paper fortune tellers. Nameless, Kentucky in 1969 is a hardscrabble community where jobs are few and poverty is a simple fact--just like the hot Appalachian breeze or the pests that can wipe out a tobacco field in days. RubyLyn Bishop is luckier than some. Her God-fearing uncle, Gunnar, has a short fuse and high expectations, but he's given her a good home ever since she was orphaned at the age of five. But now, a month shy of her sixteenth birthday, RubyLyn itches for more. Maybe it's something to do with the paper fortune tellers she's been making for townsfolk, each covered with beautifully wrought, prophetic drawings. Or perhaps it's because of Rainey Ford, an African-American neighbor who works alongside her in the tobacco field whom she has a kinship with, despite her uncle's worrisome shadow and the town's disapproval. RubyLyn's predictions are just wishful thinking, not magic at all, but through them she's imagining life as it could be, away from the prejudice and hardship that ripple through Nameless. Atmospheric, poignant, and searingly honest, GodPretty in the Tobacco Field follows RubyLyn through the course of one blazing summer, as heartbreaking revelations and life-changing decisions propel her toward a future her fortune tellers never predicted.

The author of Nine Women, One Dress delivers a charming, unforgettable novel about four women, one little lie, and the big repercussions that unite them all. It wasn’t supposed to happen this way. When Eliza Hunt created The Hudson Valley Ladies’ Bulletin Board fifteen years ago she was happily entrenched in her picture-perfect suburban life with her husband and twin preschoolers. Now, with an empty nest and a crippling case of agoraphobia, the once-fun hobby has become her lifeline. So when a rival parenting forum threatens the site’s existence, she doesn’t think twice before fabricating a salacious rumor to spark things up a bit. It doesn’t take long before that spark becomes a flame. Across town, new mom and site devotee Olivia York is thrown into a tailspin by what she reads on the Bulletin Board. Allison Le is making cyber friends with a woman who isn’t quite who she says she is. And Amanda Cole, Eliza’s childhood friend, may just hold the key to unearthing why Eliza can’t step out of her front door. In all this chaos, one thing is for sure…Hudson Valley will never be the same. Funny, romantic, raw, and hopeful, this is a story about being a woman and of the healing power of sisterhood.
