Τέσσερις φίλοι και συμφοιτητές μετακομίζουν, μετά την αποφοίτησή τους, στη Νέα Υόρκη για να φτιάξουν τη ζωή τους – άφραγκοι, χαμένοι, με μόνο τους στήριγμα τη φιλία τους και τις φιλοδοξίες τους: Ο ευγενής, ωραίος Γουίλεμ, επίδοξος ηθοποιός· ο Τζέι Μπι, ζωγράφος από το Μπρούκλιν, που προσπαθεί να κατακτήσει τον καλλιτεχνικό κόσμο∙ ο Μάλκολμ, αρχιτέκτονας σε μια σημαντική εταιρεία∙ και ο Τζουντ – ο ιδιοφυής, αινιγματικός Τζουντ. Όπως περνούν οι δεκαετίες, οι σχέσεις τους βαθαίνουν, αλλά και σκοτεινιάζουν, καθώς τις χρωματίζουν ο εθισμός, η επιτυχία, η περηφάνια. Ωστόσο η σπουδαιότερη πρόκληση, συνειδητοποιούν όλοι, είναι ο ίδιος ο Τζουντ, πλέον ένας απίστευτα χαρισματικός δικηγόρος μα και ένας άνθρωπος ολοένα και πιο διαλυμένος, με το σώμα του και τον νου του σημαδεμένα από τους ανείπωτους τρόμους της παιδικής του ηλικίας – κυνηγημένος από τραύματα που φοβάται ότι όχι μόνο δεν θα ξεπεράσει ποτέ, αλλά και θα τον ορίζουν για πάντα. Με πρόζα πλούσια και λαμπρή, η Γιαναγκιχάρα γράφει έναν τραγικό, υπερβατικό ύμνο στην αγάπη, μια αριστοτεχνική απεικόνιση του σπαραγμού, της τυραννίας της μνήμης και των ορίων της ανθρώπινης αντοχής.

The inside story of Teddy's life and presidency! You probably know that Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th president of the United States, but did you also know that he suffered great bouts of homesickness? Or that he carried a vial of morphine at all times in case he ever needed to take his own life? Though the image of President Theodore Roosevelt is one of fringed suede jackets and wire circles of glass framing a serious and scowling face, the man behind this image was a spectacularly intelligent and complex individual. 101 Things Everyone Should Know about Theodore Roosevelt explores the nuances of his famous life, giving little-known facts that complete the picture of Theodore Roosevelt. From his crippling childhood to his involvement with the Rough Riders, this book celebrates the American icon whose beliefs are still riveting almost 100 years after his death.

A SENSIBLE GOD This, the third volume in the series, comes from a Celtic soul, a scientific mind and a poetic heart. It is a book of stories and scriptures, of science and psychology, of theology and wisdom, of poetry and passion. The Big Bang was the sound of God laughing uproariously at the wonder of His latest creation. And since the main difference between fanaticism and passion is a sense of humor, this volume has plenty to make the reader laugh. It comes from the tongue of a story-teller priest who spent his childhood steeped in the mythology of Ireland and another 14 years immersed in the folklore of East Africa.

How does one become a member of an elite profession? Managing Elites examines how elites-in-training contest, rationalize, and ultimately embrace their dominant positions in society. Using interviews with law and MBA students, the author shows that becoming elite is not a straightforward process without tensions. Successful socialization outcomes--employment in large corporate law firms or prominent investment banks and consulting firms--require both accomodation and resistance to ideologies about achievement and meritocracy.
