READING: In the tradition of Rich Cohen’s Sweet and Low and Sean Wilsey’s Oh the Glory of it All, a memoir of a city, an industry, and a dynasty in decline, and the story of a young artist’s struggle to find her way out of the ruins. Frances Stroh’s earliest memories are ones of great privilege: shopping trips to London and New York, lunches served by black-tied waiters at the Regency Hotel, and a house filled with precious antiques, which she was forbidden to touch. Established in Detroit in 1850, by 1984 the Stroh Brewing Company had become the largest private beer fortune in America and a brand emblematic of the American dream itself; while Stroh was coming of age, the Stroh family fortune was estimated to be worth $700 million. But behind the beautiful façade lay a crumbling foundation. Detroit’s economy collapsed with the retreat of the automotive industry to the suburbs and abroad and likewise the Stroh family found their wealth and legacy disappearing. As their fortune dissolved in little over a decade, the family was torn apart internally by divorce and one family member's drug bust; disagreements over the management of the business; and disputes over the remaining money they possessed. Even as they turned against one another, looking for a scapegoat on whom to blame the unraveling of their family, they could not anticipate that even far greater tragedy lay in store. Featuring beautiful evocative photos throughout, Stroh’s memoir is elegantly spare in structure and mercilessly clear-eyed in its self-appraisal—at once a universally relatable family drama and a great American story.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Until the eighteenth century or even later, beer was the staple drink of most men and women at all levels of society. Tea and coffee were expensive luxuries while water might well carry disease. To supply the needs of both owners and servants, every country house with an accessible source of water had a brewhouse, usually close at hand. Although many of the brewhouses still stand, in some cases with the original brewing vessels (as at Lacock and Charlecote), their habitual conversion to other uses has allowed them to be ignored. Yet they are distinctive buildings - as much part of a country house as an ice-house or stables - which need both to be recognised and preserved. The scale of brewing in country houses, which went on to a surprisingly late date in the nineteenth century (with odd survivals, such as Hickleton in Yorkshire, into the twentieth), was often considerable, if small besides that of commercial brewing. Copious records for both brewing and consumption exist. Pamela Sambrook describes the brewing equipment, such as coppers, mash tuns underbacks and coolers; the types of beers brewed, from strong ale to small beer and how they were kept; and the brewers themselves, their skills and attitudes. English Country House Brewing, 1500-1900 shows the role beer played in the life of the country house, with beer allowances and beer money an integral part of servants' rewards. Generous allowances were made for arduous tasks, such as harvesting. For celebrations, such as the heir's coming of age, extra-strong ale was provided. This book, which is heavily illustrated, is an important and original contribution to architectural, brewing and social history.

READING: It's Burnley Not Barcelona is the diary of season 2002/2003 at Burnley Football Club, possibly the most financially difficult season in Burnley's long history since that of The Orient Game in 1987. The travels, hopes and joys of a long-suffering supporter, as well as the despair, the drenchings and hypothermia are set out against the financial problems, reduced budgets and insecurity suffered by all Nationwide clubs following the collapse of ITV Digital. August 2002 was disastrous at Burnley FC, leaving them in bottom place after four defeats and with scores of disgruntled supporters. From then on the book chronicles Burnley's recovery and progress with wit, humour, pointed observation and a bit of education thrown in for free. 2002/2003 was a marvellously eventful season, one of the most entertaining for years, with two wonderful Cup runs and some bizarre games. It's Burnley Not Barcelona records the aspirations of supporters blessed, some might say cursed, with dreams of grandeur. Unfortunately dreams come unstuck too often at Turf Moor with results such as Grimsby 6 Burnley 5 on Halloween Night, Burnley 4 Watford 7 and Burnley 2 Sheffield Wednesday 7. It's Burnley Not Barcelona

READING: Hoe olietycoon J. Paul Getty de rijkste man ter wereld werd en tegelijkertijd zijn familie verwoestte. In de jaren zestig en zeventig was oliemagnaat J. Paul Getty de rijkste man ter wereld. Het was dan ook wereldnieuws toen zijn kleinzoon Paul in 1973 werd ontvoerd. Getty weigerde echter losgeld te betalen, zelfs toen hem een lok haar en het oor van zijn kleinzoon werden toegestuurd. Terwijl de kidnappers dreigden Paul meer geweld aan te doen, was het aan moeder Gail om te onderhandelen met zowel de ontvoerders als haar schoonvader. Deze fascinerende biografie toont hoe te veel geld een familie kan verwoesten. John Pearson laat zien hoe de Getty's hun astronomische rijkdom hebben vergaard en hoe dit drie generaties beïnvloedde en van elkaar vervreemdde. Hun verhaal, en in het bijzonder de ontvoering, vormde de inspiratie voor de film All the Money in the World. Gebaseerd op een waargebeurd verhaal. VANAF 11 JANUARI 2018 IN DE BIOSCOOP! All the Money in the World is verfilmd door regisseur Ridley Scott (The Martian, Prometheus, Gladiator, Blade Runner en Alien), scenarioschrijver David Scarpa (The Last Castle en The Day the Earth Stood Still) met in de hoofdrollen Michelle Williams (The Greatest Showman, Manchester by the Sea, Shutter Island en Brokeback Mountain), Christopher Plummer (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Up, A Beautiful Mind en The Sound of Music) en Mark Wahlberg (Patriot's Day, Deepwater Horizon,The Fighter, The Departed en Transformers).

READING: This Autobiography was written at the insistence of a daughter who was curious about my life . Far from a dreadful childhood I laughed as I wrote it, - realizing it was ripe with the richness of the ever-cheery Cockney. Born in London opposite the Houses of Parliament I was the last of 16 children. Poverty and war; evacuation; my home destroyed; war work where the first jet engines were flown and refueling in flight invented. Seven brothers, my father, and my husband whod served aboard RMS Venus on those horrendous Russian Convoys in U-boat-infested waters, all had served King and Country. My husband never got over living at fever pitch. We emigrated to Canada and New Zealand, finally to California. Settled now in the Santa Clarita Valley with my second husband, I have been a docent for 26 years at the Los Angeles Zoo touring school children; visiting schools to show slides on the plight of endangered animals; reading to children at a local school; attending college classes and ongoing programs at the local Senior Center. Our children and grandchildren live close by; 24 around the Christmas table keeps us all happily connected. Attending Tai Chi classes with my husband, I took up playing the piano four years ago. I keep busy singing with a Senior group, writing stories, knitting and crocheting. Together we have travelled much of the globe. I hope the reader will find parallels of his own. Life is never as bad as we think!

READING: H. Rider Haggard (1856-1925) is best known as the successful writer of adventure stories with exotic backgrounds such as King Solomon's Mines and She. However, he also served on a number of royal commissions, and in managing his wife's Norfolk estate became a recognised expert on agricultural matters. Rural England, published in 1902 and reissued in 1906, was the product of his travels around England and Wales writing articles for the Daily Express. They show a picture of agriculture in poor condition, and suggest reforms which would improve matters. The book was well received, and subsequently many of his suggestions were included in the Development Act of 1909. He favoured co-operative societies such as were found in Denmark, an increase in the number of smallholdings, and a national forestry commission. Volume 1 discusses conditions in a large part of the south and west of England, and the Channel Islands.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: "If the wars of the last century were fought over oil, the wars of this century will be fought over water." -Ismail Serageldin, The World Bank The giant dams of today are the modern Pyramids, colossally expensive edifices that generate monumental amounts of electricity, irrigated water, and environmental and social disaster. With Deep Water, Jacques Leslie offers a searching account of the current crisis over dams and the world's water. An emerging master of long-form reportage, Leslie makes the crisis vivid through the stories of three distinctive figures: Medha Patkar, an Indian activist who opposes a dam that will displace thousands of people in western India; Thayer Scudder, an American anthropologist who studies the effects of giant dams on the peoples of southern Africa; and Don Blackmore, an Australian water manager who struggles to reverse the effects of drought so as to allow Australia to continue its march to California-like prosperity. Taking the reader to the sites of controversial dams, Leslie shows why dams are at once the hope of developing nations and a blight on their people and landscape. Deep Water is an incisive, beautifully written, and deeply disquieting report on a conflict that threatens to divide the world in the coming years.
