Wild Swans : Three Daughters of China - book cover picture

Jang Chung's superb tale of her family's courageous struggle to survive tragedy, civil war, and dictates from Kuomintang, Japanese and Maoist rulers illustrates human folly and why China is a compelling land of great tragedy. Women really connect with "Wild Swans," but it's magnetic for both genders. I was reading this book while visiting China, then hid it when our tour guide said it was officially banned. Readers might also enjoy "Red China Blues" and the China chapters of "In Search of History."

Interview with the Vampire : Anniversary edition (The vampire chronicles) - book cover picture

Once I started reading this book, I could hardly put it down. I became transfixed with the amazing story of Louis, Lestat, and the vampire-child Claudia. When I finished the book, I was in awe. Such a romantically sad story.... It completely amazes me (for I cannot think of a better word) that Rice can write a story, that ANYONE can write a story, that actually has an emotional affect on the reader. You would not think a story of a vampire would feel so...reaslistic. All in all, this book was so well-written that I have a new favorite author: Anne Rice.

A Time for Dancing - book cover picture

I loved this book "A Time for Dancing." The novel was extremely realistic in many ways...including Jules's battle with cancer. My mother died from cancer, so I could relate to the story, especially from Sammie's point of view. Sammie felt like she was loosing her best friend, which is a very normal reaction. This novel covers everything. Friendship, romance, dealing with grief, righting the wrongs. I hope there's a sequel...in the meantime, I'm counting the days until the movie arrives in theaters starring Larisa Oleynik. (I think it's out this summer)

The best English translation yet

The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way: Nagarjuna's Mulamadhyamakakarika - book cover picture

Beautifully translated (and thereby interpreted). Garfield's work will provide future students of Nagarjuna's MMK with one of the best English interpretations till date. MMK is a very difficult work to explicate, but Garfield is equal to the task. It is also a fabulous read for anyone who wishes to delve deep into "emptiness" and has the determination to apply his mind and heart to it. MMK changes the way we view the world, and in case of the wise it provides a cure to the disease called "clinging to views".

Perspective for Artists: The Practice and Theory of Perspective As Applied to Pictures With a Section Dealing With Its Application to Architecture (Dover Art Instruction and Reference Books) - book cover picture

This is unquestionably one of the most complete books on artistic perspective available. Though originally published in 1921, the information contained in this book is as relevant today (Feb. 2000) as it was then. It includes 278 pages of text, exceptional drawings, and clear explanations on topics such as inclined planes, turrets, domes, arches, steeples, the perspective of the sky and the sea, boats, pavements, etc. This is a serious book for serious students, and clearly, it is a book to own. Highly recommended.

Creative Color for the Oil Painter - book cover picture

I find Wendon Blake's book to be a necessity for any serious beginner. It is well-organized and easy to read.
W.B. clearly describes how to analyze the hues of the nature, choose and mix the correct pigmentation, how to lighten, darken and intensify paints, how to get maximum effect with limited palette (many great painters of the past used only four or five colors), how to observe local and atmospheric colors, etc...
In addition, "Creative Color" includes numerous reproductions (paintings of Homer, Cassatt, Sargent, Whistler, Twatchman, and other artists). In that part of book Blake explains how these famous painters put into practice the principles described in the text.
To keep it short - this very reasonable priced book is full of practical advice and valuable tips. One of the best "how-to" books on painting I have read.

The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing - book cover picture

banks crafts an interesting novel here. although not always immensely deep, the narrator, jane, is very easy to identify with. her bitter sarcasm and irony are used to give the reader insight to her personality, along with her own fears of failure and loneliness. this book is by far one of the best coming of age stories since catcher in the rye. the only negative criticism i would make is that the chapter narrated by nina is totally out of place and disrupts the flow of the work, although it is interesting. the chapter narrated in the second person (but still jane) is also not necessary... it seems like a junvenile ploy to be orignal but comes off cheesy and lowers the integrity of the novel. had banks alternated narration by chapter, it might have worked, but these two come out of nowhere.

A Wrinkle in Time: And Related Readings (Literature Connections) - book cover picture

My 8 1/2 year old son and I just finished A Wrinkle in Time, and although he was a little scared in parts (I admit I skipped over the chapter where they actually met IT because it was just too creepy for him), he loved the book and wanted to go right to The Wind in the Door next. I'm not a huge fan of science fiction, but Madeleine L'Engle's writing is so wonderful that somehow it doesn't feel like science fiction--kind of like C.S. Lewis's Space Trilogy. (And speaking of which, is it just me, or are there elements of Wrinkle that are very similar to That Hideous Strength?) Highly recommend.

When Bad Things Happen to Good People - book cover picture

I read this life changing book in the early 1980's after experiencing many setbacks in my own life, our family business was very stressful and on the decline and most importantly my husband's 2 heart attacks at the age of 41 and by-pass surgery thereafter. This book changed my perception of God from a controlling God to a compassionate God. Written after the death of his 13 year old son who had a disease called "progeria" rapid aging, Rabbi Kushner shares with us his insights and his relationship with God. This transformation came after much pain, anger, blame and feelings of despair. The familiar words of Job: " Why me Lord," came to him often and after much scrutiny, Rabbi Kushner is convinced that this is not the God that he believed in, God would not take his son from him, God would not punish in such a cruel way. God was and is a compassionate and merciful God. This is Rabbi Kushner's gift to us, the conviction, belief and knowledge that God is a loving God.
