Summary: From the acclaimed author of The Edge of the Sky and Wildwood comes a spellbinding tale of domestic drama in the powerful tradition of Jacqueline Mitchard's The Deep End of the Ocean that will capture your heart--and your imagination--from the very first page. Dana Cabot cannot remember the kind of person she was before May 29th, the day she became angry at God, at her workaholic attorney husband, and herself. The day her seven-year-old daughter, Bailey, disappeared. As the months wear on without a trace of her adorable but troubled child, Dana can't help blaming her husband's controversial defense of an accused abuser for playing a role in the abduction--and it shows in the strain on their marriage. But then a shocking event offers a clue to what really happened to Bailey--and Dana's unwitting part in it. Haunted by the unthinkable consequences of revealing everything she knows, Dana must decide whether to keep the truth to herself--or risk losing the rest of her family. Suspenseful, searing, and poignant, this beautifully written novel offers stunning insights into the meaning of honesty--in marriage, in friendship, and in justice. . . Praise for Drusilla Campbell's Wildwood "The pull of family and career, the limits of friendship and the demands of love all come to vivid life."--Susan Vreeland, author of Girl in Hyacinth Blue "Resist the urge to turn the page to find out what happens next. Linger, instead, to savor the skillfully crafted writing."--Judy Reeves, author of The Writer's Book of Days

The Blood Oranges: A Novel

  • Publisher : New Directions Publishing
  • Release Date : 1972-04-17
  • Category: Fiction
  • Pages : 284
  • ISBN Code: 0811222551

Summary: No synopsis or comparison can convey the novel's lyric comedy or, indeed, its sinister power—sinister because of the strength of will Cyril exerts over his wife, his mistress, his wife's reluctant lover; lyric, since he is also a “sex-singer" in the land where music is the food of love. "Need I insist that the only enemy of the mature marriage is monogamy? That anything less than sexual multiplicity . . . is naive? That our sexual selves are merely idylers in a vast wood?" Thus the central theme of John Hawkes's widely acclaimed novel The Blood Oranges is boldly asserted by its narrator, Cyril, the archetypal multisexualist. Likening himself to a white bull on Love's tapestry, he pursues his romantic vision in a primitive Mediterranean landscape. There two couples—Cyril and Fiona, Hugh and Catherine—mingle their loves in an "lllyria" that brings to mind the equally timeless countryside of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night.

Summary: Transposable elements are short lengths of DNA with the capacity to move between different points within a genome. This process can affect the function of genes at or near the insertion site. The present book gives an overview of the impact of transposable elements on plant genomes and explains how to recognize and study transposable elements, e.g. by using state-of-the-art strategies like “new generation sequencing.” Moreover, the impact of transposable elements on plant genome structure and function is reviewed in detail, and also illustrated in examples and case studies. The book is intended both for readers familiar with the field and for newcomers. With large-scale sequencing becoming increasingly available, more and more people will come across transposable element sequences in their data, and this volume will hopefully help to convince them that they are not just “junk DNA.”

Summary: "Sweet and savory may be new to the palates of some, but Gwen's been mixing it up for years and has been delivering the goods long before agave and ginger had each other at hello." - Bruce Cohen, Academy Award Winning Producer_x000D_ _x000D_ A surprising and satisfying collection of over 80 recipes by Hollywood caterer and food writer Gwen Kenneally that tantalizes sweet and savory curiosities. Recipes include Strawberry Salsa, Jalapeno Cornbread, Peach Pecan Chicken, Sweet Potato Salad and Green Tea and Chocolate Truffles. The notion of sweet and savory isn't new - after all, a popular chocolate candy has been betrothed to peanut butter for years. And a century ago frugal cooks mixed up leftovers with whatever they found in their kitchens, often resulting in culinary discoveries such as learning that sauerkraut mixed in cake batter made a moister cake, with a savory edge. Now, like never before, the savory/sweet combo is taking the food world by storm. The saltier, the brinier, the sweeter, the stickier...the better. The culinary landscape has become a place of art, adventure and a bit of science with flavors taking on bold identities, mandating that alternating flavors complement each other. Gwen's high profile clientele expects her to keep up with trends as well as pave the way. She is known for blending contemporary creativity with family recipes, comfort foods and diversity in her menu planning. In this, her first cookbook, she shares recipes that are hits at Hollywood affairs, political fundraisers and family gatherings.

Artfully illustrated by New York designer Alexandra Conn, Sweet and Savory Cookbook is a wonderful addition to the cookbook collection for the forward thinking, food loving kitchen._x000D_ _x000D_ "Gwen Kenneally is a wonderfully creative chef who instinctually knows how to mix and match ingredients and flavors." - Karen Young, Founder,

Instead of having kung-fu skills and a closet full of medieval weapons, I’m an ex-junkie with a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time. Or the right place at the wrong time. Or…whatever. Wanted for crimes against inhumanity I (mostly) didn’t commit, I was nearly a midnight snack for a werewolf until I was “saved” by a vampire calling itself the Bride of Quiet. Already cursed by a werewolf bite, the vamp took a pint out of me too. So now…now, well, you wouldn’t think it could get worse, but you’d be dead wrong.

Summary: The series Molecular Methods of Plant Analysis launches the former 'Modern Methods' into the 'molecular' era with this volume on "Taste and Aroma". Analysis of the plant components interacting with these two senses, so important for the very survival of human beings and, in more recent times, the key to their enjoyment of life as well, is presented with examples of the use of molecular approaches. These include DNA microarrays, antisense technology and RNA gel blot analysis.Some recent advances in plant analysis technology embrace amongst others the use of electroantennography in the detection of physiologically important flower volatiles. An introductory chapter explains what we know about the molecular biology of human taste and aroma receptors, as this has implications for the analysis of plant components interacting with these receptors. As the first volume in the molecular series, this book lays the foundation for others to come.

In the playground it's the law of the jungle But at the school gate, there are no rules at all... When Sadie Roper moves back to London, she's determined to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. First, she needs to get her daughter settled into a new school-one of the most exclusive in the city. Next, she's going to get back the high-flying criminal barrister career she sacrificed for marriage ten years earlier. But nothing goes quite as planned. The school is not very welcoming newcomers, her daughter hasn't made any friends yet and the other mothers are as fiercely competitive as their children. Sadie immediately finds herself on the outside as she navigates the fraught politics of the school gate. But the tide starts to turn as Sadie begins to work on a scandalous, high-profile case that's the perfect opportunity to prove herself again, even though a dangerous flirtation threatens to cloud her professional judgment. And when Liza, queen of the school moms, befriends Sadie, she draws her into the heart of the world from which she was previously excluded. Soon Sadie and her family start to thrive, but does this close new friendship prevent her from seeing the truth?

When their genomic abundance began to be apparent, they were categorized as "junk DNA" and acquired the label of parasites. Expanding understanding of gene and genome organization has revealed the profound extent of their impact on both. Plant Transposons and Genome Dynamics in Evolution captures and distills the voluminous research literature on plant transposable elements and seeks to assemble the big picture of how transposons shape gene structure and regulation, as well as how they sculpt genomes in evolution. Individual chapters provide concise overviews of the many flavors of plant transposons and of their roles in gene creation, gene regulation, development, genome evolution, and organismal speciation, as well as of their epigenetic regulation. This volume is essential reading for anyone working in plant genetics, epigenetics, or evolutionary biology.
