Description : From Pat Frank—author of the classic apocalyptic sci-fi novel Alas, Babylon—comes a political thriller set, and written, at the dawn of the Cold War, now back in print. In Pat Frank’s riveting, insightful, and thought-provoking novel, young, outspoken Jeff Baker comes out of World War II determined to work for the State Department. When he lands his assignment in 1949, he becomes the third secretary of the US embassy in Budapest, an observation post behind the Iron Curtain. Jeff’s experiences as a soldier fighting on a hill in Italy left him scarred and instilled in him a hatred for war in all forms—including the emerging Cold War. But when he is assigned to the "Atlantis Project," a top-secret mission for organizing an underground resistance in Hungary, he grapples with his beliefs and his loyalty to his superiors. And when he meets Rikki, a dancer in Budapest, he also finds himself torn between this new love and Susan Pickett—the love he left back home in Washington. As he becomes more immersed in the Atlantis Project, Jeff must decide what he is willing to risk for a chance to strike a blow for peace. Part cloak-and-dagger adventure, part high-voltage romance, and part biting satire, Pat Frank's writing and sense of detail takes readers back to a time of intrigue and uncertainty.

Description : AN AFFAIR OF STATE first appeared in play form and ran over a year in Chicago. The story follows a banquet served in the British Governor's mansion on the Island of Cyprus on the night before the outbreak of WWI, where a secret treaty that may avert war will be delivered to an unknown Austrian courier. When a leading German correspondent is found murdered, a number of other intrigues come to light. Each chapter of the book is devoted to a single course of the dinner as these plots interweave and move toward a violent and surprising climax. Recipes for each dish from the classic Escoffier cookbook are included. Benedetti's first novel, The Long Italian Goodbye, received high praise from authors and critics such as Adriana Trigiani, Ernest Gaines, and Ron McLarty, and Richard Christiansen of the Chicago Tribune.

Description : Excerpt from An Affair of State At the Grafton Street crossing an unseen power, subtle and mysterious, which is called Chance in the present age of science, leaped suddenly to the aid of the agents of the air. The wayfarers stepped off the pavement boldly, perhaps a little unwarily, for the shops were closed and the street lamps gave none too much light, just as a taximeter cab dashed noiselessly round the corner of the street. Only a man of uncommon quickness and presence of mind could have saved himself. He sprang back to the pavement, but quick as he was the lamp of the vehicle missed him by a hairbreadth, While its wheels flung a liberal supply of mud over his garments. Further agility was necessary to avoid a collision with a policeman who had just tried the door of a jeweller's shop.

Description : There are other Worlds. Not other planets in the skies but other Worlds separate from ours with different beasts, different plants, different peoples, different magic. You may discover this when you take shelter in a nook, a grotto, or some other hidden place. There you experience a sudden feeling and the landscape outside changes. You have just passed through a Gate. There is no going back. These are the annals of one such traveler. He will tell you the rest.My name is Odo fitz Gilbert. I walk the Worlds. Everywhere I have traveled there is someone who needs a bodyguard, or thinks they do. In this World, in the town of Krallow, Andrew Marat felt he needed a bodyguard. He could not be seen to hire one, so I became his "new best friend." It soon became obvious that he had good reason to think his life was in danger, and one of the prime suspects was his dangerously attractive sister, whose smile woke long-suppressed emotions in me. The more I investigated the more things became tangled. It would take all my cunning and luck to uncover the threat, keep Andrew alive, and avoid a dance with Death.

Description : The State Of Affairs Iconic couples' therapist and bestselling writer of Mating in Captivity Esther Perel returns with an intriguing look at relationships through the lens of adultery. An affair: it can rob a couple of their relationship, their happiness, their very identity. And yet, this pervasive human experience is so poorly understood. What are we to make of this time-honored taboo, unsuccessfully universally forbidden? Why do people cheat especially those in happy marriages? Why does an infidelity hurt so much? When we declare adultery, what exactly do we mean? Do our unrealistic expectations of marriage direct us to betrayal? Is there such a thing as an infidelity-proof marriage? Is it possible to love several people at once? Can an affair ever improve a marriage? Perel weaves real-life case accounts with intelligent psychological and cultural analysis in this compelling book. For the past ten years, Perel has traveled the globe and worked with hundreds of couples who have grappled with infidelity. Betrayal hurts, she writes, but it is possible to heal. An affair can even be the doorway to a new marriage with the same person. With the right strategy, couples can grow and learn from these disturbing experiences, together or apart. Infidelity, she argues, have a lot to teach us about modern relationships what we anticipate, what we think we desire, and what we feel like our right. They offer an unprecedented window into our individual and cultural attitudes about love, lust, and involvement. Through examining prohibited love from multiple angles, Perel invites us into an honest, enlightened, and entertaining examination of modern marriage in its many variations. Fiercely farsighted, The State of Affairs provides a daring framework for understanding the intricacies of love and desire. Perel notes, "Love is messy; infidelity more so. But it is also a window, like no other, into the crevices of the human heart." Perel develops 2006's Mating in Captivity: Unlocking Erotic Intelligence with an exciting study of relations. In this book, she establishes the controversial opinion that infidelity is eventually beneficial to marital bonds, and she successfully explores the ways that infidelity force partners to carefully examine their positions about love, commitment, and sex. But do not misunderstand, Perel does not promote infidelity. She dismisses the frequently used excuse that adultery is due to sex obsession and argues that emotional dishonesty is still cheating. "how are we to know what constitutes an affair?." Perel sensibly makes the case that if the betrayal has already happened, it's imperative that the experience provides a way forward whether that is to stay married or to split up. She bolsters her arguments with real-life examples from both heterosexual and same-sex relationships. The publication is sure to spark intelligent discussions that will have readers everywhere examining their belief systems. This topic is a thought-provoking take on relationships and essential reading for couples dealing with the affair. Infidelity has a lot to teach us about relationships, what we expect, what we think and desire, and what we feel entitled to, records Perel "They offer an unprecedented window into our particular and cultural attitudes regarding love, lust, and commitment." Using research and individual stories from her 30 years as a couples' therapist. The writer dives into the world of affairs: why men and women engage in them, what many consider "innocent" behavior versus flat-out wrongdoing. When the offended part discovers the affair, the rage, jealousy, guilt, and host of other emotions that flare up, and the full healing process, which determines if a couple will remain together or not. Perel reviews each affair with an open attitude, trying to get to the reason of why it happened and how each involved can view the same situation in a different light.

Description : In June 1960, a young faculty wife named Alzada Kistner and her husband David, a promising entomologist, left their 18-month old daughter in the care of relatives and began what was to be a four month scientific expedition in the Belgian Congo. Three weeks after their arrival, the country was gripped by a violent revolution trapping the Kistners in its midst. Despite having to find their way out of numerous life-threatening situations, the Kistners were not to be dissuaded. An emergency airlift by the United States Air Force brought them to safety in Kenya where they continued their field work.Thus began three decades of adventures in science. In An Affair with Africa, Alzada Kistner describes her family's African experience -- the five expeditions they took beginning with the trip to the Belgian Congo in 1960 and ending in 1972-73 with a nine-month excursion across southern Africa. From hunching over columns of ants for hours on end while seven months pregnant to eating dinner next to Idi Amin, Kistner provides a lively and humor-filled account of the human side of scientific discovery. Her wonderfully detailed stories clearly show why, despite hardship and danger -- and contrary to all of society's expectations -- she could not forsake accompanying her husband on his expeditions, and, to this day, continues to find the world "endlessly beckoning, a lively bubbling cauldron of questions and intrigue."In the spirit of Beryl Markham's West with the Night and Isak Dinesen's Out of Africa, An Affair with Africa shares with readers the thoughts and experiences of a remarkable woman, one whose unquenchable thirst for adventure led her into a series of almost unimaginable situations. Readers -- from armchair travelers fascinated by stories of Africa to scientists familiar with the Kistners's work but unaware of the lengths to which they went to gather their data -- will find An Affair with Africa a rare treasure.
