  • Anglais Tortilla Flat

    Steinbeck John

    Adopting the structure and themes of the Arthurian legend, John Steinbeck created a 'Camelot' on a shabby hillside above the town of Monterey, California, and peopled it with a colorful band of knights.

  • The legendary 1951 scroll draft of On the Road, published as Kerouac originally composed it
    IN THREE WEEKS in April of 1951, Jack Kerouac wrote his first full draft of On the Road-'typed as a single-spaced paragraph on eight long sheets of tracing paper, which he later taped together to form a 120-foot scroll. A major literary event when it was published in Viking hardcover in 2007, this is the uncut version of an American classic-'rougher, wilder, and more provocative than the official work that appeared, heavily edited, in 1957. This version, capturing a moment in creative history, represents the first full expression of Kerouac's revolutionary aesthetic.

Neither a vicious monster nor a seductive pawn, Lucrezia Borgia was a shrewd, determined woman who used her beauty and intelligence to secure a key role in the political struggles of her day.
    Drawing from a trove of contemporary documents and fascinating firsthand accounts, Bradford brings to life the art, the pageantry, and the dangerous politics of the Renaissance world Lucrezia Borgia helped to create.
