Harvard Square INGRAM INTERNATIONAL
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Andre Aciman has been hailed as "the most exciting new fiction writer of the twenty-first century" (New York magazine), a "brilliant chronicler of the disconnect between who we are and who we wish we might have been" (Wall Street Journal), and a writer of "fiction at its most supremely interesting" (Colm Toibin). Now, with his third and most ambitious novel, Aciman delivers an elegant and powerful tale of the wages of assimilation a moving story of an immigrant s remembered youth and the nearly forgotten costs and sacrifices of becoming an American. It s the fall of 1977, and amid the lovely, leafy streets of Cambridge a young Harvard graduate student, a Jew from Egypt, longs more than anything to become an assimilated American and a professor of literature. He spends his days in a pleasant blur of seventeenth-century fiction, but when he meets a brash, charismatic Arab cab driver in a Harvard Square cafe, everything changes. Nicknamed Kalashnikov Kalaj for short for his machine-gun vitriol, the cab driver roars into the student s life with his denunciations of the American obsession with "all things jumbo and ersatz" Twinkies, monster television sets, all-you-can-eat buffets and his outrageous declarations on love and the art of seduction. The student finds it hard to resist his new friend s magnetism, and before long he begins to neglect his studies and live a double life: one in the rarified world of Harvard, the other as an exile with Kalaj on the streets of Cambridge. Together they carouse the bars and cafes around Harvard Square, trade intimate accounts of their love affairs, argue about the American dream, and skinny-dip in Walden Pond. But as final exams loom and Kalaj has his license revoked and is threatened with deportation, the student faces the decision of his life: whether to cling to his dream of New World assimilation or risk it all to defend his Old World friend. Harvard Square is a sexually charged and deeply American novel of identity and aspiration at odds. It is also an unforgettable, moving portrait of an unlikely friendship from one of the finest stylists of our time."

Opis - Doskonały menedżer porusza się we wszystkich obszarach rzeczywistości biznesowej. Musi radzić sobie z komunikacją, być kreatywny i stać na czele niczym prawdziwy lider. Musi także właściwie motywować pracowników i rozwiązywać problemy, ale to nie wszystko. Naprawdę świetny menedżer przeistoczy zbiór przypadkowo dobranych pracowników w prawdziwie zgraną grupę ludzi mocno zaangażowanych w działania firmy i autentycznie przekonanych o celowości własnych poczynań. Nie osiągnie tego efektu za pomocą zręcznych zabiegów dyplomatycznych. Jest to możliwe jedynie dzięki zbudowaniu znakomitych relacji z podwładnymi - relacji opartych na zaufaniu, fascynacji, właściwym podziale obowiązków i wykorzystaniu skrzętnie skrywanych przed otoczeniem przeróżnych talentów poszczególnych osób. Tylko tak można zbudować prawdziwy zespół marzeń. Jeśli czujesz, że jako menedżer osiągnąłeś już pewien poziom skuteczności, ale wciąż brakuje Ci umiejętności inspirowania ludzi i prowadzenia ich do zdobywania kolejnych, pozornie tylko niebosiężnych celów, koniecznie sięgnij po tę książkę. Znajdziesz w niej praktyczne i sprawdzone informacje dotyczące budowania więzi, włączania pracowników w swoje projekty i wywoływania w nich entuzjazmu, a także wyzwalania ich kreatywności i pomysłowości. Nauczysz się wdrażać strategie, dzięki którym podwładni uznają Cię za wspaniałego szefa i z pełnym przekonaniem będą dla Ciebie pracować, a ponadto dowiesz się nieco więcej o unikaniu konfliktów. Sam się przekonaj!

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
It's June in Random Point and 18-year-old Amanda Sands has been left in charge of Hugo's antiques shop and his spanking magazine. Pursued by gallery owner Raphael Price as well as married photographer Pascal Robbins, the charismatic Harvard coed cuts her blonde hair short, turns sophisticated Pamela Bartlett into her adoring submissive and continues to ravish the senses of her love-struck boyfriend Colby Hodge. Pascal's wife, singer-actress Phoebe Casper, develops a mad crush on composer Anthony Newton that threatens to ruin her marriage and dislodge Susan Ross as the queen of Newton's heart. Meanwhile Pamela's husband, department store owner Ambrose Bartlett, lays siege to voluptuous, former dominatrix Polyxena Guzman, which completely distracts him from noticing the worshipful court being paid to his glamorous wife by the youthful Dru Baxter. Marguerite Alexander creates the Venus Club to bring all her local girlfriends in the scene closer together, but doesn't foresee that including Jane Eliot in the circle will ignite a dangerous flame of desire in the girl who was once so in love with her husband, Michael Flagg. The romance of discipline wafts through Random Point like a balmy summer breeze as its animated denizens discover just how much pleasure, passion and corporal punishment eroticism can be fit into one small month. About the Author: A lifelong enthusiast, Eve Howard has been writing, editing and creating spanking erotica since the 1980's. There are 10 previous volumes in the Shadow Lane series as well as a pictorial publication called Shadow Lane's The Art of Spanking Volume One. Eve has also written, directed and produced over 170 spanking videos and has recently returned to the small screen as a performer in some her own productions. Designed to make people feel good, rather than guilty about being into spanking, Eve's books suggest an irreverent alternative to the BDSM extremes portrayed in such novels as The Story of O. Eve was the editor of the beautifully designed Stand Corrected magazine, which raised the bar for spanking publications in the 1990's. And for over 20 years, Eve's company Shadow Lane has been one of the primary social organs of the real-life spanking scene, throwing annual gala events for fellow enthusiasts to come together and celebrate the spicy variation that has preoccupied them for so long. Eve lives with her husband Tony and their two cats in Las Vegas.

There is an authenticity in John Duncklee's voice that you don't find in other writers of the American West today. His characters are as lively as a wild mustang stallion, and as unpredictable as the weather. If you love a good story, treat yourself to John Duncklee. Johnny D. Boggs While looking for "the pocket watch" once owned by Tyrone Running Bear's murdered father, He and his guide, Nell Muldoon travel around southern Arizona Territory where they meet various interesting characters and find themselves in sometimes exciting situations that beg solutions and bring them together in what some might consider an unlikely love. Being half Ojibwa and a Harvard man, Tyrone Running bear's behavior is often exasperating to Nell, a ranch girl from outside Tucson. The reader will be eager to turn the pages to discover what will happen next as character after character enters the story.
