Ernest Hemingway S A Moveable Feast


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Bush's first year in office begins by describing Inauguration Day festivities, speeches, Oval Office actions, Bush and Cheney staff appointments, Cabinet positions, ambassadorships et al. After initial actions, Bush s nationwide tour to enlist support for his agenda and lavish Cinco de Mayo celebration at the White House to curry Hispanic votes are related. Jefford's defection and loss of Senate control to Democrats, passage of the $1.35 trillion tax cut over ten years and "unchanged, revisionist" curricula in education, plans for more military base closings, ABM shield, JSF and experimental planes, drones, hi-speed computers, inane USS Greenville and spy plane incidents are discussed. To his credit, "unilateralist, exceptionalist" Bush rejected the '72 Treaty and the Kyoto Protocol. Topics that went nowhere included Medicare, prescription drugs, Social Security, campaign finance reform faith-based social services, Mid-East peace, energy and federal judicial appointments. Limited movement occurred with stem cell research, Americans with Disabilities Act and environment. One world Bush's relentless, shameless pursuit of the Hispanic vote along with Fox's boorish behavior, lack of border control, disgraceful legalization of "illegal immigrant lawbreakers" and push for FTAA and "fast track" despite growing trade deficits, loss of U. S. manufacturing and hi-pay jobs are detailed. After the September 11th terrorists attacks, Bush opportunistically placed his stalled legislative agenda "on hold," focused as "wartime president," got even by mercilessly bombing air defenseless, archaic Afghanistan, haven for Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida amid a domestic anthrax scare. Great Britain was aggressively involved; however, other "allies" offered moral support, fly over permission, other token gestures and use of bases for money or U. S. protection. Victories at Mazur-e-Sharif, Kunduz, Kabul and Kandahar, destruction of al-Qaida terrorist training camps, removal of the Taliban from power, installation of a provisional government, declaration of victory although "PR plums" bin Laden and Omar remained free, flip flop Bush's plan to "rebuild Afghanistan," pursuit of al-Qaida terrorists worldwide and "cajoling a flimsy coalition" amid Arab-Muslim reluctance perhaps for assault against daddy's old nemesis Iraq are described. Brief airing of the new budget, state of the union, Enron and author's comments and suggestions complete coverage.

Drive Thru Dreams


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

“This is a book to savor, especially if you’re a fast-food fan.”—Bookpage "This fun, argumentative, and frequently surprising pop history of American fast food will thrill and educate food lovers of all speeds." —Publishers Weekly Most any honest person can own up to harboring at least one fast-food guilty pleasure. In Drive-Thru Dreams, Adam Chandler explores the inseparable link between fast food and American life for the past century. The dark underbelly of the industry’s largest players has long been scrutinized and gutted, characterized as impersonal, greedy, corporate, and worse. But, in unexpected ways, fast food is also deeply personal and emblematic of a larger than life image of America. With wit and nuance, Chandler reveals the complexities of this industry through heartfelt anecdotes and fascinating trivia as well as interviews with fans, executives, and workers. He traces the industry from its roots in Wichita, where White Castle became the first fast food chain in 1921 and successfully branded the hamburger as the official all-American meal, to a teenager's 2017 plea for a year’s supply of Wendy’s chicken nuggets, which united the internet to generate the most viral tweet of all time. Drive-Thru Dreams by Adam Chandler tells an intimate and contemporary story of America—its humble beginning, its innovations and failures, its international charisma, and its regional identities—through its beloved roadside fare.

Never Any End To Paris


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

A splendid ironic portrayal of literary Paris and of a young writer’s struggles by one of Spain’s most eminent authors. This brilliantly ironic novel about literature and writing, in Vila-Matas’s trademark witty and erudite style, is told in the form of a lecture delivered by a novelist clearly a version of the author himself. The “lecturer” tells of his two-year stint living in Marguerite Duras’s garret during the seventies, spending time with writers, intellectuals, and eccentrics, and trying to make it as a creator of literature: “I went to Paris and was very poor and very unhappy.” Encountering such luminaries as Duras, Roland Barthes, Georges Perec, Sergio Pitol, Samuel Beckett, and Juan Marsé, our narrator embarks on a novel whose text will “kill” its readers and put him on a footing with his beloved Hemingway. (Never Any End to Paris takes its title from a refrain in A Moveable Feast.) What emerges is a fabulous portrait of intellectual life in Paris that, with humor and penetrating insight, investigates the role of literature in our lives.

The Dangerous Summer


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The Dangerous Summer is Hemingway's firsthand chronicle of a brutal season of bullfights. In this vivid account, Hemingway captures the exhausting pace and pressure of the season, the camaraderie and pride of the matadors, and the mortal drama as in fight after fight the rival matadors try to outdo each other with ever more daring performances. At the same time Hemingway offers an often complex and deeply personal self-portrait that reveals much about one of the twentieth century's preeminent writers.
