Description : Corporate.pdf leaves you hanging on the edge of your toilet. Of course, those are my words, the words of the author, but what do others have to say about the book? "Yes, I liked the book Jeffrey, now clean the dishes," raved Sandra Horton, my mother. "I can't believe anybody in our family can write this good," is an honest to goodness quote from Grandma Wilma Horton. And Uncle Bob Bentz called the book "riveting, I couldn't wait to turn the page." Sure, my family loves me, but what about my friends? Big Mike Leonard was heard somewhere in Germany saying the book was "so descriptive you could smell the bird poop." Darron Vigliotti, not only a friend but a highly respected member of the Stratford High Book Review, deemed it "the culture-bearing work of the MTV generation." He even went as far as saying that I "crafted" the book. My former roommate, Kristen Vernet, said "It's about damn time," in an astounded tone. I think she's just glad she doesn't live with me anymore. And Erin Specht, a current coworker, read the first thirty pages but couldn't handle the pressure of coming up with a quote about it in two minutes. I can personally assure you that she hugely anticipates reading the rest of the book. Now you, you don't know me, but that's the point. Read the book and make up your own mind. If you enjoy laughing, crying, and taking dumps then you'll love it.

Description : Arthur Honeycutt, a new and very naive antiques dealer addicted to the Arts and Crafts Period and a lively expression from that era, ragtime, declares to his highly skeptical wife Penny, "We're treasure hunters, Penny, Arts and Crafts treasure hunters. Think childhood, think dreams. Darwin was wrong about those damn monkeys of his. We're descended from squirrels. Collectors'll go nuts here!" In addition to his critical wife, he must cope with all sorts of unpleasant people: an arrogant but famously knowledgeable collector/dealer named Jeffrey Dillsworth; Guy Willowtree, a sleazy antiques picker; a pompous, rich, overbearing customer, the über snobbish Harriet Vanderhorst; and bombastic consignors such as Andrew Cannon. He has much to learn about antiques and life even as he hungers and hunts, like other fanatics in the game, for the Holy Grail of Arts & Crafts, a long-missing treasure by the renown Gustav Stickley. By play's end his character has changed. For the better might be debatable, but at least his wife approves.

Description : 'Shall I embrace you, must I let you go? Again you haunt me: come then, hold me fast!' Goethe viewed the writing of poetry as essentially autobiographical and the works selected in this volume represent over sixty years in the life of the poet. In early poems such as 'Prometheus' he rails against religion in an almost ecstatic fervour, while 'To the Moon' is an enigmatic meditation on the end of a love affair. The Roman Elegies show Goethe's use of Classical metres in homage to abcient Rome and its poets, and 'The Diary' , supressed for more than a century, is a narrative poem whose eroticism is unusually combined with its morality. Arranged chronologically, David Luke's verse translations are set alonjgside the German orginals to give a picture of Goethe's poetic development. This edition also includes an introduction and notes placing the poems in the context of the poet's life and times.
