Now a New York Times Bestseller Paris was practically perfect... Craig Carlson was the last person anyone would expect to open an American diner in Paris. He came from humble beginnings in a working-class town in Connecticut, had never worked in a restaurant, and didn't know anything about starting a brand-new business. But from his first visit to Paris, Craig knew he had found the city of his dreams, although one thing was still missing-the good ol' American breakfast he loved so much. Pancakes in Paris is the story of Craig tackling the impossible-from raising the money to fund his dream to tracking down international suppliers for "exotic" American ingredients... and even finding love along the way. His diner, Breakfast In America, is now a renowned tourist destination, and the story of how it came to be is just as delicious and satisfying as the classic breakfast that tops its menu.

Van Gogh in Paris:a Novel

Contemporary research and museum websites worldwide have shed new light on Vincent van Gogh's formative years in Paris. Nicholas Vazzana has blended history and fiction to show the profound transformation of one of the world's great artists during his two-year stay in Paris' Montmartre quarter. The thirty-three-year-old Dutchman's painting style, formerly rooted in the gray, cold north, evolves into an unrestrained, colorful brilliance under Parisian influences. In addition to changing his painting style, Van Gogh grows as a social being, mingling with prominent artists and lively bohemians in the city's cafés and bistros, where he exchanges dialogue with such notables as Henri Toulouse Lautrec and Emile Zola. But his turbulent love affair with Agostina Segatori, the owner of Cafe du Tambourin, changes Van Gogh's view of love and leads to a violent, dangerous confrontation. Van Gogh in Paris intimately reveals Van Gogh's "lost years," when he was [or is] seduced by sensual decadence, unbridled sexual freedom, and absinthe, known as the green fairy. As a professional artist, Vazzana incorporates his knowledge of the masters into his novel, adding texture and passion to Van Gogh's fascinating life.

The Hudson River in Literature

An Anthology

A second, enlarged edition of a popular anthology, The Hudson River in Literature contains an abundance of poems and excerpts from novels and essays describing the Hudson River, work and travel on it, and life alongside it prior to the twentieth century. Included here are works by such well-known writers as Washington Irving, James Fenimore Cooper, William Cullen Bryant, Edgar Allen Poe, and Walt Whitman, as well as selections by lesser-known writers (like Joseph Rodman Drake and Nathaniel Parker Willis) whose works are either out of print or are available only as part of their selected works. From Whitman's "mast-hemm'd Manhattan" to Nathaniel Parker Willis' "sabbath solitude" on upstate riverbanks, anyone familiar with what is often called the American Rhine, and indeed many who are not, will enjoy the detailed, still-accurate descriptions of the river itself. But perhaps even more enjoyable are the numerous excerpts that describe particular aspects of Hudson life - Indian canoes, Dutch farms, steamboat excursions, and the majestic scenery - which allows one to visualize the river at a time when it dominated life in Eastern New York. This handsome volume has been made more so by the inclusion of 65 illustrations, not found in the original edition, which lavishly depict many of the locales descibed in various texts. The illustrations, by such renowned artists as Currier and Ives, Greenville Perkins, William Bartlett, and Felix Darley, include regional maps,portraits of authors, and reproductions of historic sites and homes.
