Angels and ages : a short book about Darwin, Lincoln, and modern life by Adam Gopnik ( Book )

On February 12, 1809, two men were born an ocean apart: Abraham Lincoln in a one-room Kentucky log cabin; Charles Darwin on an English country estate. Each would see his life's work inspire a stark change in mankind's understanding of itself. In this bicentennial twin portrait, Adam Gopnik shows how these two giants, who never met, altered the way we think about death and time--about the very nature of earthly existence

Wayne Thiebaud : a paintings retrospective by Steven A Nash ( Book )
11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Published on the occasion of the artist's eightieth birthday and accompanying a major retrospective exhibition, this book brings together 120 of Thiebaud's most important paintings, watercolors, and pastels. Essays by Steven A. Nash and Adam Gopnik trace the course of his career from the 1950s, when he first began to emerge as a significant national artist. They assess Thiebaud's role in the history of American modernism and his place in the tradition of realism, and examine the surprisingly wide variety of art historical sources to which his paintings refer, including Chardin, Sargent, Hopper, Mondrian, Morandi, and Diebenkorn."--BOOK JACKET
Americans in Paris : a literary anthology ( Book )
10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,055 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From the earliest years of the American republic, Paris has provoked an extraordinary American literary response. An almost inevitable destination for writers and thinkers, Paris has been many things to many Americans: a bastion of old-world traditionalism, a hot-bed of revolutionary ideologies in politics and art, and above all a space in which to cultivate an openness to life and love impossible at home. Through stories, letters, memoirs, poems and journalism, Americans in Paris distills three centuries of vigorous, glittering, and powerfully emotional writing about the place that Henry James called "the most brilliant city in the world" and that Ernest Hemingway characterized as "a moveable feast.""--BOOK JACKET

The table comes first : family, France, and the meaning of food by Adam Gopnik ( Book )
9 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From the author of Paris to the Moon--one man's quest for the meaning of food in a time obsessed with what to eat. Never before have we cared so much about food. It preoccupies our popular culture, our fantasies, even our moralizing--"You still eat meat?" How could the land of Chef Boyardee have come so far overnight? And where can we possibly go from here? Locating the roots of our foodways in France, Adam Gopnik traces our rapid evolution from commendable awareness to manic compulsion and how, on the way, we lost sight of a timeless truth: what goes on around the table--families, friends, lovers coming together, or breaking apart; conversation across the simplest or grandest board--is always more important than what we put on the table. Gently satirizing the entire human comedy of the comestible, The Table Comes First seeks to liberate us from the twin clutches of puritanical guilt and cable TV glitz. It is the delightful beginning of a new conversation about the way we eat now"--

Walking the High Line by Joel Sternfeld ( Book )
8 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first book of Sternfeld's largely unseen early colour photographs. In 1969 Sternfeld began working with a 35 mm camera and Kodachrome film, and First Pictures contains works from this time until 1980. Here Sternfeld develops traits that appear in his mature work: irony, a politicised view of America, concern for the social condition. But there are also pictures that bear little relation to his later work: colour arrangements that parallel those of Eggleston, as well as street photography which Sternfeld ceased making in 1976. The photographs in First Pictures were made at a time when colour photography was struggling to assert itself against the authoritative black and white tradition, making this book a revelation both in Sternfeld's oeuvre and in the history of contemporary photography
Letters of Marcel Proust. by Marcel Proust ( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This wonderful collection of Marcel Proust's letters, selected and translated by Mina Curtiss, is both a revelatory introduction to the great writer and a treasure trove for those readers more familiar with his -- la Recherche du Temps Perdu. Mina Curtiss especially chose these letters as apt illustrations of Proust's growing sensibility and intellectual power during the gestation of the novel. Indeed, many of the characters in the book are drawn from the men and women we meet here. The letters are also exciting as an unfolding panorama of the Belle -poque and for their superb insights into literature, art, and music" -- publisher website (November 2006)

Parisians by Peter Turnley ( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As his images of Paris and Parisians make evident, Peter Turnley is a descendant of such master French photographers as Brassai, Henry Carter-Bresson, Robert Doisneau, and Edouard Boubat. That Turnley's work has been inspired by these earlier influences comes as no surprise, for as a young photographer he worked as Doisneau's assistant, and he subsequently became a close friend of Boubat, meeting him "at least once a week for an afternoon glass of rogue and warm conversation."" "Turnley's work is nonethless uniquely his own, rooted in his twenty-five-year affair of the heart with the most beautiful city in the world. It is a city that offers him not only beauty but also a cherished haven from the wrenching horrors of war and upheaval that he documents in the course of his career as a photojournalist. His photos give us seductive glimpses of Paris life as lived on the street, in the Metro, and at countless neighborhood cafes - an intimate Paris that outsiders rarely see."--BOOK JACKET
