Kartography
From www.barnesandnoble.com: "The globe spins. Mountain ranges skim my fingers; there is static above the Arabian Sea. Pakistan is split in two, but undivided. This world is out of date. Rain outside. If it reaches Karachi, the waves will swell further. The airport, though, is inland. From there to here is no distance at all if you look at the map of the world. But distance is not about miles and kilometres, it is about fear. Who said that? Someone who wasn't married to a pilot, I'd guess. I unscrew a jar of ink. Scent of smudged words and metal fills the air. Do all tentacled creatures produce ink, Raheen? Does the cuttlefish? Can you write on the waves with cuttleink? I close my eyes, and wrap my fingers around a diamond-shaped bone. I still hear the world spinning. I spin with it, spin into a garden. At dusk. And yes, those are shoulder pads stitched into my shirt." More ...
A Forever Death

The House of Thanksgiving: A Collection of Poems
The House of Thanksgiving is a collection of poetry that, with both warmhearted humor and insightful depth, uncovers the spiritual, even the mystical, in the ordinary activities of everyday life. The poet, Stuart Kestenbaum '73, director of the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine, has found "a quiet sense of retreat and a wealth of inspiration" for his verse on Deer Isle. This volume follows his 1990 release from Coyote Love Press, Pilgrimage. More ...

A comprehensive and practical guide, presented in lucid prose, that is a must-read for the business negotiator in our global economic age.

The author, Jesawald W. Salacuse '60, is a professor of Law at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. More ...
Girl Cook: A Novel
Called “a deliciously modern Cinderella story of love, sex, chefs and the city,” this first novel is all about Cordon Bleu graduate Layla Mitchner and her trials and tribulations both in Manhattan’s dating world and in its restaurant kitchens. Layla, a character developed with humor and more than a dash of sass, may not be to everybody’s taste, but she certainly makes a lasting impression on the reader. The author, who resides in Brooklyn, is herself a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu as well as Columbia University’s writing program. She has cooked in numerous restaurant kitchens and her writing has appeared in numerous places as well. More ...
Franny’s Way
Among the most recent plays by the Olivier- and Tony-Award winner, it was first produced off-Broadway in 2002.

More ...

Religious Pluralism in America: The Contentious History of a Founding Ideal
William R. Hutchison '51, a professor at Harvard's Divinity School, is the author of Religious Pluralism in America: The Contentious History of a Founding Ideal, an "ambitious reappraisal of American religious history." In the book, Hutchison chronicles the historical developments that have gradually led Americans to go beyond mere tolerance of religious differences to the actual acceptance of religious diversity. An illumniating volume, scholarly but written with a clarity that makes it readily accessible to the general reader, it welcomes the "new pluralism" as a work in progress towards fulfillment of one of the nation's founding ideals. More ...
Closing Argument: Defending (and Befriending) John Gotti and Other Legal Battles I Have Waged
Bruce Cutler '70 is the author of Closing Argument: Defending (and Befriending) John Gotti and Other Legal Battles I Have Waged. The book is an autobiography of Cutler, who became one of the most famous lawyers in America through his defense of mob boss John Gotti. Although Gotti threatens to overpower the book, it would be a great mistake to dismiss it as primarily centered on the "Teflon Don." Cutler also tells of his early upbringing, his days at Hamilton and his practice of the lawyer's craft, in addition to his insider accounts of high-profile criminal trials. More ...
Physiology and the Literary Imagination: Romantic to Modern

By painstakingly analyzing their writings, Gordon, a professor of English at Connecticut College, casts new light on literary inspiration in seven significant authors spanning almost two centuries. More ...
