Agatha Christie
Agatha Christie: first lady of crime edited by H. R. F. Keating. Agatha Christie was not only the most successful author of detective stories the world has ever known, she was also a mystery in herself, giving only the rarest interviews—declining absolutely to become any sort of public figure—and a mystery, too, in the manner in which she achieved her astonishing success.
Distinguished crime novelist (and acclaimed critic) H. R. F. Keating brings together a dozen noted writers from both sides of the Atlantic to throw light on the ever-intriguing Dame Agatha. Some essays analyze Christie’s art itself; some explain the reasons for her success—not just the books, but also in film and theatre.
The myriad of critical angles explored here are penetrating, affectionate, enthusiastic, analytical, and even funny. Together, they give an almost unique insight into the life and work of the First Lady of Crime. Call #: PR6005.H66 Z554 1977

As Yancey’s star continues to rise, her past threatens to catch up with her and she fears someone may be after her as well . . . In a wicked little dance of revenge, Basil and Yancey struggle to keep their lives on track, while a chorus of unforgettable characters either come to their aid, or make matters worse. In the mix are: Yancey’s mother, Ava “Mama Dearest” Braxton, a diva’s diva and a second-rate showgirl housed in the body of an aging supermodel; the wise and wonderful Windsor Adams; and the new guy in town, Bartholomew “Bart” Dunbar, a rogue’s rogue and handsome hunk of a man who stands to make Basil look like a choirboy.

And there was light: Abraham Lincoln and the American struggle by Jon Meacham. "A president who governed a divided country has much to teach us in a twenty-first-century moment of polarization and political crisis. Abraham Lincoln was president when implacable secessionists gave no quarter in a clash of visions inextricably bound up with money, power, race, identity, and faith. He was hated and hailed, excoriated and revered. In Lincoln we can see the possibilities of the presidency as well as its limitations. At once familiar and elusive, Lincoln tends to be seen in popular minds as the greatest of American presidents--a remote icon--or as a politician driven more by calculation than by conviction. This illuminating new portrait gives us a very human Lincoln--an imperfect man whose moral antislavery commitment was essential to the story of justice in America. Here is the Lincoln who, as a boy, was steeped in the sermons of emancipation by Baptist preachers; who insisted that slavery was a moral evil; and who sought, as he put it, to do right as God gave him light to see the right. This book tells the story of Lincoln from his birth on the Kentucky frontier in 1809 to his leadership during the Civil War to his tragic assassination at Ford's Theater on Good Friday 1865: his rise, his self-education through reading, his loves, his bouts of depression, his political failures, his deepening faith, and his persistent conviction that slavery must end. In a nation shaped by the courage of the enslaved of the era and by the brave witness of Black Americans of the nineteenth century, Lincoln's story illuminates the ways and means of politics, the marshaling of power in a belligerent democracy, the durability of white supremacy in America, and the capacity of conscience to shape the maelstrom of events"-- Call #: E457.2.M479 2022 Call #:

Ukraine in flames Victory in Soviet Ukraine Ukraine in Flames (1943). An impassioned account of "how the steppes were sowed with rage," Dovzhenko's film ranges across Ukraine's forests and plains, chronicling the horrors of German invasion and the gathering forces of Ukrainian resistance. In scenes that recall the director's masterpiece Earth, peasants newly delivered from German occupation rebuild their lives, sowing grain across fields freshly cleared of corpses, as surviving peasant women speak bitterly of the crimes committed by Nazi occupiers. Praised by film scholar Jay Leyda as "an astonishingly personal movie ... an inspiration to every artist who works in the documentary film," Ukraine in Flames shows the faces of war rarely seen. Victory in Soviet Ukraine (1944). Terror and triumph on the Eastern Front, as Dovzhenko's cameras capture the Red Army on the offensive. As German forces retreat, fierce combat scenes give way to harrowing revelations -- among them the mass graves uncovered at Babi Yar -- in regions newly freed from German control. Speaking before electrified crowds in Kiev's center, General Zhukov displays, as seen nowhere else on film, his trademark charisma and exhortative powers. A work of passionate patriotism, Dovzhenko's film also clearly rebukes Stalin - - here conspicuously missing in action -- for which the director paid dearly.
