It is the height of the Second World War and Berlin has essentially become a city of women .

Sigrid Schr der is for all intents and purposes the model German soldier s wife She goes to work every day does as much with her rations as she can and dutifully cares for her meddling mother in law all the while ignoring the horrific immoralities of the regime But behind this fa ade is an entirely different Sigrid a woman who dreams of her former lover now lost in the chaos of the war Her lover is a Jew .

But Sigrid is not the only one with secrets .

A high ranking SS officer and his family move down the hall and Sigrid finds herself pulled into their orbit A young woman doing her duty year is out of excuses before Sigrid can even ask her any questions And then there s the blind man selling pencils on the corner whose eyes Sigrid can feel following her from behind the darkness of his goggles .

Soon Sigrid is embroiled in a world she knew nothing about and as her eyes open to the reality around her the carefully constructed fortress of solitude she has built over the years begins to collapse She must choose to act on what is right and what is wrong and what falls somewhere in the shadows between the two .

No description available, br Cat behaviorist and star of Animal Planet s hit television show i My Cat from Hell i Jackson Galaxy a k a Cat Daddy isn t what you might expect for a cat expert as i The New York Times i noted with his goatee and tattoos he looks like a Hells Angel Yet Galaxy s ability to connect with even the most troubled felines not to mention the stressed out humans living in their wake is awe inspiring In this book Galaxy tells the poignant story of his thirteen year relationship with a petite gray and white short haired cat named Benny and gives singular advice for living with caring for and loving the feline in your home br br When Benny arrived in his life Galaxy was a down and out rock musician with not too much more going on than a part time job at an animal shelter and a drug problem Benny s previous owner brought the cat to the shelter in a cardboard box to give him up Benny had seen better days his pelvis had just been shattered by the wheels of a car and his owner insisted he d been unbondable from day one Nothing could have been further from the truth An inspiring account of two broken beings who fixed each other i Cat Daddy i is laced throughout with Galaxy s amazing Cat Mojo advice for understanding what cats need most from us humans in order to live happier healthier lives, In Chemistry Imagined Nobel laureate Roald Hoffmann in a unique collaboration with artist Vivian Torrence reveals the creative and humanistic sparks that drive science in general and chemistry in particular A series of thirty field color painted collages paired with short essays personal commentary and poems evokes the magic of this usually inaccessible field its historical roots the richness of modern chemical activities and the mysterious confluences of science and art Showing the general reader how science permeates daily life Hoffmann stresses the social cultural literary and psychological contexts of chemistry With delicate surreal images Torrence explores the highly visual nature and the intellectual essence of chemistry the way chemists think and the way they formulate their questions Chemistry Imagined discusses chemical discoveries processes and personalities in an unusually humanistic manner Perusing the contents a reader finds the first drafts of the periodic table of elements likened to revisions of a William Blake poem the chemical reasons behind the success of Chinese folk medicine a poem about scanning tunneling microscopy similarities between molecules and musical instruments and a meditation on why it is that scientists supposediy discover but artists create The general public along with scientists and artists will find that this celebration of how molecular science fits into world culture is surprising compelling and poignantly beautiful Torrence s provocative images and Hoffmann s perceptions of modern and ancient chemistry shape an illuminating collage of a central science, Like most gentiles in Nazi occupied Paris architect Lucien Bernard has little empathy for the Jews So when a wealthy industrialist offers him a large sum of money to devise secret hiding places for Jews Lucien struggles with the choice of risking his life for a cause he doesn t really believe in Ultimately he can t resist the challenge and begins designing expertly concealed hiding spaces behind a painting within a column or inside a drainpipe detecting possibilities invisible to the average eye But when one of his clever hiding spaces fails horribly and the immense suffering of Jews becomes incredibly personal he can no longer deny reality br br Written by an expert whose knowledge imbues every page this story becomes more gripping with every life the architect tries to save br
