READING: The hilarious New York Times bestseller “sharply observes the lives of globe-trotting, overindulging, investment bankers” (Entertainment Weekly). “Some chick asked me what I would do with 10 million bucks. I told her I’d wonder where the rest of my money went.” —@GSElevator For three years, the notorious @GSElevator Twitter feed offered a hilarious, shamelessly voyeuristic look into the real world of international finance. Hundreds of thousands followed the account, Goldman Sachs launched an internal investigation, and when the true identity of the man behind it all was revealed, it created a national media sensation—but that’s only part of the story. Where @GSElevator captured the essence of the banking elite with curated jokes and submissions overheard by readers, Straight to Hell adds John LeFevre’s own story—an unapologetic and darkly funny account of a career as a globe-conquering investment banker spanning New York, London, and Hong Kong. Straight to Hell pulls back the curtain on a world that is both hated and envied, taking readers from the trading floors and roadshows to private planes and after-hours overindulgence. Full of shocking lawlessness, boyish antics, and win-at-all-costs schemes, this is the definitive take on the deviant, dysfunctional, and absolutely excessive world of finance. Some words have been blacked out due to editorial choice. “Shocking and sordid—and so much fun.” —New York Daily News “LeFevre’s workplace anecdotes include tales of nastiness, sabotage, favoritism, sexism, racism, expense-account padding, and legally questionable collusion.” —The New Yorker

READING: Boyd McDonald (1925-1993) had the makings of a successful life in the 1950s--an education at Harvard, a job at Time/Life--but things didn't turn out as planned. After 20 years of resentful conformity and desperate alcoholism, McDonald dried out, pawned all of his suits, and went on welfare; it was then that his life truly began. From a room in a New York SRO hotel, McDonald published Straight to Hell, a series of chapbooks collecting readers' "true homosexual experiences." Following the example of Alfred Kinsey, McDonald obsessively pursued the truth about sex between men just as gay liberation began to tame America's sexual outlaws for the sake of legal recognition. Admired by such figures as Gore Vidal and William S. Burroughs, Straight to Hell combined a vigorous contempt for authority with a keen literary style, and was the precursor of the first queer 'zines decades later. Containing in-depth interviews with friends and family members and a wealth of previously unpublished material, True Homosexual Experiences: Boyd McDonald and Straight to Hell is the first book devoted to this key figure of the American underground.

READING: Justice is blind. Justine isn’t. Book two in the Saturn's Daughter series, in which Tina Clancy is gifted with the power to dispense justice...for good or evil. YOU DON’T NEED A LAW DEGREE TO DISPENSE STREET JUSTICE. Tina Clancy hardly has a chance to celebrate passing the bar exam when an explosion at Acme Chemical sends a noxious pink and green cloud billowing over Baltimore’s radioactive Zone. It is not as if the place was normal to begin with, but as the poisonous fumes overtake the sky, her neighbors start falling comatose—and Acme is plucking them off the streets faster than Tina and her friends can save them. Just because Tina’s a lawyer now doesn’t mean she’s going to miraculously morph into a respectable, law-abiding citizen. She once accidentally damned her own boyfriend to hell, for heaven’s sake. Now that Max is back—in the body of his evil cousin, a U.S. senator with family ties to Acme—she needs him more than ever. And what does it mean to be one of Saturn’s daughters? Tina knows she’s obligated to use her powers to save the Zone, no matter the cost, but there’s a real possibility that victory will happen over her dead body.

READING: ‘De afdaling in de hel onderscheidt zich doordat het de halve eeuw Europees trauma in de volle breedte en diepte beschrijft.’ Literary Review De afdaling in de hel – Europa 1914-1948 is een poging te begrijpen hoe Europa gedurende de eerste helft van de gewelddadige en turbulente 20e eeuw in een afgrond kon wegzinken. Slechts vier jaar na het absolute dieptepunt in 1945 kon het daarna al het fundament leggen voor een verbazingwekkend herstel – voor een nieuw Europa dat verrees uit de as van het oude, voor een weg terug uit de hel, een nieuw begin. Kershaw schetst vier factoren die ervoor zorgden dat Europa zich verloor in twee allesvernietigende oorlogen, vier factoren die al voor de Eerste Wereldoorlog aanwezig waren, en die door de rampzalige Vrede van Versailles alleen maar werden versterkt. De Tweede Wereldoorlog was vanaf het sluiten van die ‘vrede’ bijna onafwendbaar. Na die monstrueuze oorlog en de volledige vernietiging van Duitsland kon eindelijk gewerkt gaan worden aan een blijvende vrede. Sir Ian Kershaw (1943) is een Brits historicus die studeerde aan de Universiteit van Liverpool en Oxford. Vanaf 1989 doceerde hij, tot aan zijn pensioen, als professor hedendaagse geschiedenis aan de Universiteit van Sheffield. Zijn specialisatie is Hitler en nazi-Duitsland. Het biografische tweeluik Hitler - Hoogmoed en Hitler - Vergelding werd een wereldwijde bestseller, net als het bejubelde Keerpunten en meest recent nog Tot de laatste man, over de vraag waarom Hitler-Duitsland zo lang doorvocht en niet capituleerde.

READING: After the discovery of the structure of DNA in 1953, scientists working in molecular biology embraced reductionism—the theory that all complex systems can be understood in terms of their components. Reductionism, however, has been widely resisted by both nonmolecular biologists and scientists working outside the field of biology. Many of these antireductionists, nevertheless, embrace the notion of physicalism—the idea that all biological processes are physical in nature. How, Alexander Rosenberg asks, can these self-proclaimed physicalists also be antireductionists? With clarity and wit, Darwinian Reductionism navigates this difficult and seemingly intractable dualism with convincing analysis and timely evidence. In the spirit of the few distinguished biologists who accept reductionism—E. O. Wilson, Francis Crick, Jacques Monod, James Watson, and Richard Dawkins—Rosenberg provides a philosophically sophisticated defense of reductionism and applies it to molecular developmental biology and the theory of natural selection, ultimately proving that the physicalist must also be a reductionist.

READING: From the author of the New York Times bestsellers Holding Up the Universe and All the Bright Places (soon to be a major motion picture starring Elle Fanning), a spellbinding debut about ill-fated love—and what it means to grow up. “A touching read, funny and wise, like a crazy blend of Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, a less morose Flannery O’Connor, and maybe a shot of Hank Williams . . . Niven makes some memorable moon-spun magic in her rich fiction debut.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) Like All the Bright Places, hailed as a “charming love story about [an] unlikely and endearing pair” (New York Times Book Review), Jennifer Niven's debut novel is a big-hearted story about the struggle to find happiness. Velva Jean's mother urged her to "live out there in the great wide world,” and growing up in Appalachia in the years before World War II, Velva Jean dreams of becoming a big-time singer in Nashville. Then she falls in love with Harley Bright, a handsome juvenile delinquent turned revival preacher. As their tumultuous love story unfolds, Velva Jean must choose between keeping her hard-won home and pursuing her dream of singing in the Grand Ole Opry. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Pages 258
ISBN 9781619020924
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: As someone who clocked more time in mosh pits and at pro-choice rallies than kneeling in a pew, Kaya Oakes was not necessarily the kind of Catholic girl the Vatican was after. But even while she immersed herself in the punk rock scene and proudly called herself an atheist, something kept pulling her back to the religion of her Irish roots. After running away from the Church for thirty years, Kaya decides to return. Her marriage is under stress, her job is no longer satisfying, and with multiple deaths in her family, a darkness looms large. In spite of her frustration with Catholic conservatism, nothing brings her peace like Mass. After years of searching to no avail for a better religious fit, she realizes that the only way to find harmony—in her faith and her personal life—is to confront the Church shed left behind. Rebellious and hypercritical, Kaya relearns the catechisms and achieves the sacraments, all while trying to reconcile her liberal beliefs with contemporary Church philosophy. Along the way she meets a group of feisty feminist nuns, a “pray-and-bitch circle, an all-too handsome Italian priest, and a motley crew of misfits doing their best to find their voices in an outdated institution. This is a story of transformation, not only of Kayas from ex-Catholic to amateur theologian, but ultimately of the cultural and ethical pushes for change that are rocking the worlds largest religion to its core.
