About this title

Synopsis:

Story Easton knows the first line of every book, but never the last.She never cries, but she fakes it beautifully.And at night, she escapes from the failure of her own life by breaking into the homes of others, and feeling, for a short while, like a different, better person.But one night, as an uninvited guest in someone s empty room, she discovers a story sadder than her own: a boy named Cooper Payne, whose dream of visiting the Amazon rainforest and discovering the moonflower from his favorite book, Once Upon a Moonflower, died alongside his father.For reasons even she doesn't entirely understand, Story decides that she will help Cooper and his mother. She will make his dream come true.The Understory is a magical, moving, funny, and poignant story of failure and success; of falling apart and rebuilding; and of coincidences that never really are. Part comedy, part drama, and part fairy tale, Elizabeth Leiknes s second novel is a wonder you won't soon forget."

Synopsis:

"Whether a beginner or a seasoned veteran, this book appeals..." - "The Word", Summer 2001. This book brings the Great Books out from behind the high castle walls, lowers the drawbridge and welcomes readers inside. With lively and concise commentary, Robert Kanigel becomes a personal tour guide to subjects such as: Books on Many a List for Burning; Not "Robinson Crusoe"; Not "Brave New World" - Lesser Known Classics; But I know What I Like...- Books on Aesthetics and Style.
