Year of the King: An Actor's Diary and Sketchbook - Twentieth Anniversary Edition
Limelight Editions, 1985
The actor's process, clear and personal
"Year of the King" is a fine opportunity to watch an actor prepare for a role. In this case, the actor, Antony Sher, on the verge of leaving the Royal Shakespeare Company, is offered Richard III, one of Shakespeare's most complex and twisted characters. The book is Sher's journal, filled with a mixture of backstage anecdotes, evocative illustrations by Sher, and moments when the acting process ...
A Cast Of Killers: The Twentieth Anniversary Edition
Sidney D. Kirkpatrick
Great mystery that left me mystified.
The book is a one sitting read; it holds your attention from start to finish and as you blaze through it you constantly anticipate what the next character is going to divulge. As a lifelong movie buff I found the conversations between Vidor and those who had been there and done that absolutely fascinating. And that is the problem. At times it reads like a Chandler novel and I was left wondering ...
Professing Literature: An Institutional History, Twentieth Anniversary Edition
University Of Chicago Press
Gerald Graff and the Future of Critical Pedagogy
In his early books, Literature Against Itself: Literary Ideas in Modern Society (1979) and Professing Literature: An Institutional History, Twentieth Anniversary Edition (1987), Graff took as his main subjects literary theory and the institutional history of departments of English and literature, respectively. LITERATURE AGAINST ITSELF continues to be of interest and value for its discussion and ...
It's Always Something: Twentieth Anniversary Edition
Simon & Schuster
Still Wonderful After 20 Years
This twentieth anniversary edition proves the timelessness of Gilda's story. Her courage and humor shine through in her writing, and they are just as apt in their dealings with illness and life as they were in 1989. Just like her characters on Saturday Night Live, Gilda seems to be at once vulnerable yet incredibly strong. This comes from her ability to be utterly honest about her fears and ...
When Bad Things Happen to Good People: Twentieth Anniversary Edition, with a New Preface by the Author
Harold S. Kushner
when bad things happen to good people
It is indeed a book "...for everyone who has been hurt by life-..." and "...a book that heals...". Born of a tragedy in his own life, Rabbi Kushner transcends a strong belief in Gods goodness and fairness, instead of blame for natural disasters,illness and accidents, or complacencent acceptance of all things as Gods will, judgment and punishment. Kushner redefines miracles, by way of prayer ...
The Unbearable Lightness of Being: Twentieth Anniversary Edition
One of My Favorites
The Unbearable Lightness of Being. I picked this up in Prague while I was backpacking through Europe. I was hoping that it would hold me over a on several very long train rides, but I finished it in one weekend. This is probably one of the best books that I've ever read. Malian Kundera explores relationships, sex, and love. His thoughts an insights are clear and presented well. The relationship ...
The River Why, Twentieth-Anniversary Edition
David James Duncan
Sierra Club Books
Made me appreciate fishing... a little
While I recognize that this book, at its heart, didn't have a whole lot to do with fishing, I can't help but think that I would've liked it even more if I had understood the fishing references. Despite that, the writing quality and subtle humour had me hooked from the get-go. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Gus's journey and could recognize myself in his youthful fervor.
The Stranger Beside Me: The Twentieth Anniversary Edition
W. W. Norton & Company

The Polar Express
Chris Van Allsburg
A great holiday storie. Warm and enjoyable and it has a childlike innocense and children of all ages will love this book.
Sexual Secrets: Twentieth Anniversary Edition: The Alchemy of Ecstasy
A Complex Study Of Sexuality as a Spiritual Practice
This is an interesting book to say the least. There are many, many books out concerning Tantric and Taoist sexual practices few of them actually have anything to do with Tantric Yoga or Taoism. Tantra, in the West, is automatically associated with sexuality but in actuality sex is a very small part of Tantra. Tantra is a path(unlike vedanta)that tends to embrace all eight limbs of Yoga and all of ...
Caprock Canyonlands: Journeys into the Heart of the Southern Plains, Twentieth Anniversary Edition ...
Dan L. Flores
America's missing National Park -- a lament and a dream
That's the driving spirit behind this wonderful book -- Texas' missing National Park. At one time, in the early 1930s, the National Park Service was looking at a national park at least 150,000 acres, and as much as 1 million acres, for Texas' Panhandle caprock. That's right, 1 million acres -- 1,600 square miles or so. What happened? Don't blame the Depression; the NPS bought land in Texas ...

Saints, Scholars, and Schizophrenics: Mental Illness in Rural Ireland, Twentieth Anniversary Edition, Updated ...
University of California Press
Exposes wriggling psychic life under the Blarney Stone
A superb description and analysis of the pathologies in Irish styles of interaction, conversational and behavioural. Written by an American psycho-anthropologist conducting fieldwork in Ireland. Brings a detached eye to Irish patterns of conversation and communication. Should be required reading for Irish people seeking self understanding and insight into why their culture is how it is. Caused ...
The Body and Society: Men, Women, and Sexual Renunciation in Early Christianity; Twentieth Anniversary ...
Columbia University Press
an excellent, scholarly study
Brown's book is the finest study available on sexuality and the body in the early Church. This book sheds great light on the classical, Jewish , and Christian conceptions of the body and how important those conceptions were in early Christianity, especially for early Christian asceticism. This is a must read for anyone interested in gaining a serious appreciation of the early Church. Many ...
The Klamath Knot: Explorations of Myth and Evolution, Twentieth Anniversary Edition
David Rains Wallace
University of California Press
Overlooked gem of natural philosophy
Nature writing always carries something of the romantic with it, and this is its greatest strength and greatest curse. As a strength, it provides a window into the sublime limit which nature opens for her human observers. Such romanticism is a weakness, however, if it devolves into a reified hymn to an imagined nature which is as unreal as the imagined un-nature from which one hopes to fly. ...
The Second Self: Computers and the Human Spirit, Twentieth Anniversary Edition
The MIT Press, 1984
A bold academic foray into a new media
Turkle's seminal text examines the social implications of our increasingly computer-suffused lives. With a strong emphasis on individual interactions with computers, this ethnography describes an emerging post-modern computer culture, and goes on to interpret it in philosophical terms. A bit utopian, very smart, acts as a bit of a pre-quel to her recent work, Life on the Screen

Sheffield Phoenix Press Ltd
She has got balls
Loved this book. Compared to Catholic wafflers like Raymond Brown and Luke Johnson, she stands head and shoulders above them in terms of scholarship and intellectual honesty. Of course, Jesus had a biological father. Of course the gospel writers knew that. They were anti pagans, anti Zeus and anti Apollo. They were Jews coming from the Old Testament tradition. No virgin births in Hebrew ...
Lipstick Traces: A Secret History of the Twentieth Century, Twentieth Anniversary Edition
Belknap Press of Harvard University Press
A MUST READ for today's "Hip" Kids!!!!
I feel extremely positive over the fact that this book is considered important enough to have a twentieth anniversary edition rerelease! Since it's original publication, the internet has crawled into everyone's life & spread the Spectacle to a "Matrix"-like dominance, yet there is this book which MAY offer any who read it a mere highway sign towards the exit ramp! This is probably one of my ...
