"The publication of this extraordinary volume firmly established Flannery O'Connor's monumental contribution to American fiction. There are thirty-one stories here, including twelve that do not appear in Everything That Rises Must Converge and A Good Man Is Hard to Find, the only story collections O'Connor put together during her short lifetime. O'Connor published her first story, ""The Geranium,"" in 1946, while she was a student at the Iowa Writers' Workshop. Arranged chronologically, this collection shows that her last story, ""Judgement Day,"" sent to her publisher shortly before her death, is a brilliantly transfigured version of ""The Geranium."" With an introduction by O'Connor's long-time friend and editor, Robert Giroux, The Complete Stories reveals a lively, penetrating talent that has given us some of the most powerful and disturbing fiction of the twentieth century."

"THE GRAPHIC ADAPTATION OF THE GROUNDBREAKING AND DEFINITIVE BIOGRAPHY OF CHE GUEVARA Che Guevara's legend is unmatched in the modern world. Since his assassination in 1967 at the age of thirty-nine, the Argentine revolutionary has become an internationally recognized icon, as revered as he is controversial. In Che: A Revolutionary Life, Jon Lee Anderson and José Hernández present the man behind the myth, creating a complex and human portrait of this passionate idealist. Adapted from Jon Lee Anderson's definitive masterwork, Che vividly transports us from young Ernesto's medical school days as a sensitive asthmatic to the battle- fields of the Cuban revolution, from his place of power alongside Castro to his disastrous sojourn in the Congo and, finally to his violent end in Bolivia With astonishing precision, color and drama, Anderson and Hernandez's Che makes us a witness to the revolutionary site and times of Che Guevara."
"This is the definitive edition of P. G. Wodehouse's letters, edited with a commentary by Oxford academic Sophie Ratcliffe. One of the funniest and best-loved writers of the twentieth century, P G Wodehouse always shied away from the idea of a biography. A quiet, retiring man, he expressed himself through the written word. His letters collected and expertly edited here provide an illuminating biographical accompaniment to legendary comic creations such as Jeeves, Bertie Wooster, Psmith and the Empress of Blandings. Drawing on hitherto unpublished sources, these letters give an unrivalled insight into Wodehouse, covering his schooldays at Dulwich College, the family's financial reverses which saw his hopes of university dashed, life in New York working in musical comedy with Jerome Kern and George and Ira Gershwin, the years of fame as a novelist, and the unhappy episode in 1940 when he was interned by the Germans and later erroneously accused of broadcasting pro-Nazi propaganda. It is a book every lover of Wodehouse will want to possess."
