This lyrical novel by one of Mexico's leading women writers explores both desire and the desire to tell a love story. In an idle moment between grading assignments, a French teacher sitting in a cafe in a Caribbean seaport town sketches an island on his white napkin. Like Proust's petite madeleine, the island opens up a host of images: "Island: the sum of all improbabilities; intoxicating improbability of fiction. Island: image of desire...All the islands formulated by human beings and all islands appearing on the maps comprise a single imaginary archipelago - the archipelago of desire." Monsieur N.'s original plan to use a Jules Verne novel about shipwrecked schoolboys as a translation exercise for his pupils becomes an obsession to collect every reference to islands he can find and to meditate on them in a diary of his imaginary travels - his Islandiary. Parallel to this quest is an archetypal love story that he begins writing in his notebook, printed in a narrow column with islands of quotations surrounding it. Voyaging and the quest for islands become a metaphor for the search for paradise, for the island as an imagined place where love achieves perfection. It also becomes a metaphor for writing: "Every text is an island."

Finding her comfortable bourgeois existence as wife and mother predictable after eight years of marriage, Irene Wagner brings a little excitement into it by starting an affair with a rising young pianist. Her lover’s former mistress begins blackmailing her, threatening to give her secret away to her husband. Irene is soon in the grip of agonizing fear. Written in the spring of 1913, and first published in 1920, this novella is one of Stefan Zweig’s most powerful studies of a woman’s mind and emotions. La Paura (1954) the Roberto Rossellini film based on the Stefan Zweig novel Fear was the last of the extraordinary features in which Rossellini directed Ingrid Bergman, who was then his wife.

In this debut novel, when scientist Lyle Darmouth, is taken up the road to a bar known as the Arbor Mountain Tavern, he never could have guessed the horrors that were to come. The trip is a nightmare, and the roller coaster begins, altering both Lyle's, and his friends Rickie Tamworth's lives forever. Pushed around for much of his life, he ultimately stands up to the world in the most brutal way. Haunted by the memories of it, Lyle tries to internalize his feelings, but his mind cannot handle the enormity of such a crime. Rickie suggests Lyle should see a priest to discuss the event, and try to receive some psychological help. He receives good advice, and feels better afterwards. But the talk becomes a catalyst toward a scientific breakthrough. Lyle creates a drug that asks the ultimate question, "Would you want to know your exact time of death?" On your sixteenth birthday, your phone will ring and the one injected has a choice: pick it up and test fate, or ignore it and let it ring.

He’s the bad boy quarterback, one scandal away from being traded. She’s the squeaky-clean pop star with a morality clause hanging around her neck. And they can’t keep their hands off each other. Cassian Ellis fell in love with Gigi Cavanaugh when he was a kid. But he couldn’t have her, because her dad--his mentor — promised to take him all the way to the pros. The price: stay away from his daughter. But Gigi was embedded in his soul — there was no distancing himself from her. And, senior year in high school, in a moment of desperation when he couldn’t take all the want and love and lust, he ended things in the worst way possible. Now, nine years later, he’s forced to do charity work to clean up his party boy image. And guess who’s working right alongside him? Gigi can't believe her bad luck. She's on the same charity tour as Cassian Ellis. And, with the press recording their every move, she has to pretend to like the man who tore out her heart and stomped all over it. But Cassian's determined to win her back. Only, someone’s leaking photographs, and headlines about the bad boy quarterback corrupting the squeaky-clean pop star could sink both their dreams. Can their love overcome all the world has put between them?

The Book of Horror introduces you to the scariest movies ever made and examines the factors that make them so frightening. Horror movies have never been more critically or commercially successful, but there's only one metric that matters: are they scary? Back in the silent era, viewers thrilled at Frankenstein and Dracula. Today, the monsters may have changed, but the instinct remains the same: to seek out the unspeakable, ride the adrenaline rush and play out our fears in the safety of the cinema. The Book of Horror focuses on the most frightening films of the post-war era - from Psycho (1960) to It Chapter Two (2019) - examining exactly how they scare us across a series of key categories. Each chapter explores a seminal horror film in depth, charting its scariest moments with infographics and identifying the related works you need to see. Including references to more than 100 classic and contemporary horror films from around the globe, and striking illustrations from Barney Bodoano, this is a rich and compelling guide to the scariest films ever made. The films: Psycho (1960), The Innocents (1961), The Haunting (1963), Don't Look Now (1973), The Exorcist (1973), The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974), Who Can Kill a Child?

Jess Willard, the “Pottawatomie Giant,” won the heavyweight title in 1915 with his defeat of Jack Johnson, the first black heavyweight champion. At 6 feet, 6 inches and 240 pounds, Willard was considered unbeatable in his day. He nonetheless lost to Jack Dempsey in 1919 in one of the most brutally one-sided contests in fistic history. Willard later made an initially successful comeback but was defeated by Luis Firpo in 1923 and retired from the ring. He died in 1968, largely forgotten by the boxing public. Featuring photographs from the Willard family archives, this first full-length biography provides a detailed portrait of one of America’s boxing greats.
