In this spectacular new romance from acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Jane Feather, fate deals one stubbornly single young woman and one deceptively heartless man a shocking hand in a high-stakes bet. But is love in the cards? Jack Fortescu gambles to win, and this time his prize is not only his rival’s lavish mansion but everything in it– including the man’s beautiful sister! But when it comes to games, Jack has met his match. . . . Left homeless by her brother’s escapade, Arabella Lacey has two appalling choices: pack her bags–or agree to marry the lunatic who’s taken over her house. Why would such a handsome–and outrageously wealthy–man want such an unromantic arrangement? Arabella intends to find out, and have a little fun in the process at Jack’s expense . . . literally. As Jack discovers that his reluctant bride is no ordinary beauty, he feels a stir of admiration, among other emotions, that wasn’t part of the bargain. Now he’s the one with everything to lose. . . . From the Paperback edition.

gunos, equivocadamente, que mi novela es a modo de una satira del feminismo norteamericano. Como EL PARAISO DE LAS MUJERES ha sido traducida ya a varios idiomas, me decido a publicarla igualmente en espanol, aunque no pensase en ello cuando la escribi. Sera una obra mas dentro del marco de la novela espanola, la cual desde hace algunos anos no peca ciertamente por exceso de variedad. Los mas de los novelistas marchan en fila india, uno tras otro, y solo de tarde en tarde se les ocurre saltar un poco fuera del sendero. Mientras tanto, en los otros paises la novela procura renovarse y los autores cambian con frecuencia su manera de ver la vida y de expresar sus impresiones, para que no los "encasille" el publico, adivinando de antemano lo que pueden decir. Ademas, la novela es un genero de variedad infinita, y alli donde todos los novelistas describen lo mismo, con un lenguaje semejante, la novela corre peligro de muerte. Tal vez el presente libro sea considerado por muchos como una "equivo

DIARY OF A GENIUS stands as one of the seminal texts of Surrealism, revealing the most astonishing and intimate workings of the mind of Salvador Dali, the eccentric polymath genius who became the living embodiment of the 20th century's most intensely subversive, disturbing and influential art movement. Dali's second volume of autobiography, DIARY OF A GENIUS covers his life from 1952 to 1963, during which years we learn of his amour fou for his wife Gala, and their relationship both at home in Cadaques and during bizarre world travels. We also learn how Dali draws inspiration from excrement, rotten fish and Vermeer's Lacemaker to enter his 'rhinocerontic' period, preaching his post-holocaustal gospels of nuclear mysticism and cosmogenic atavism; and we follow the labyrinthine mental journeys that lead to the creation of such paintings as the Assumption, and his film script The Flesh Wheelbarrow. This new expanded edition includes a brilliant and revelatory essay on Salvador Dali, and the importance of his art to the 20th century, by the author J G Ballard. Illustrated throughout in full colour, with over 60 works by the artist plus numerous documentary photographs.

An exploration of the joys and idiosyncrasies of Britain's one-off narrow-gauge railway lines. Features: * A unique journey around Britain's narrow-gauge steam railway networks * Informative guide to lesser-known and eccentric railways across the country * An alternative railway history for lovers of steam heritage. Content: From stalwart little locomotives of topographic necessity, to the maverick engines of one man's whimsy, Britain's narrow-gauge steam trains run on tracks a world apart from its regimented mainlines. In Small Island by Little Train, eccentricity enthusiast Chris Arnot sets out to discover their stories. * The miniature railway on the Kent coast, used for Home Guard military trains during World War II, and later the school commute for dozens of local school children * The UK's only Alpine-style rack-and-pinion railway, scaling one of Britain's highest mountains * The five different gauges of railway circling one man's landscaped garden, and the team building their own trains to run on it * The legendary Peak District railway closed and never reopened - what, if anything remains of it? Far more than mere relics of the nation's industrial past, or battered veterans of wartime Britain, these are also stories of epic feats of preservation, volunteerism, tourism, and local history. They are an exploration of idiosyncrasy, enthusiasm and eccentricity. Or, to put it another way, a tale of Britishness.
