  Point of Origin
Hemingway bookBorn in Illinois in 1899, Ernest Hemingway went on to become a consummate sportsman, big-game hunter, boxer, raconteur, ladies' man, and (last but not least) the most widely imitated writer of our era. From the early vignettes of In Our Time to the late-breaking triumph of The Old Man and the Sea, he ceaselessly tinkered with the art of literary subtraction. In his hands, anyway, less was more--and while his brand of manly minimalism has been the subject of a million imitations and parodies, it's seldom been matched, and never surpassed.
Hemingway a Voice Still?
Ernest Hemingway
The Sun also RisesThe Sun Also Rises first appeared in 1926, and yet it's as fresh and clean and fine as it ever was, maybe finer. Hemingway's famously plain declarative sentences linger in the mind like poetry: "Brett was damned good-looking. She wore a slipover jersey sweater and a tweed skirt, and her hair was brushed back like a boy's. She started all that." His cast of thirtysomething dissolute expatriates--Brett and her drunken fiancé, Mike Campbell, the unhappy Princeton Jewish boxer Robert CohnEmbrace the Future of Fitness

    Pulitzer Prize (Saint Augustine)Garry Wills, who won the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Critics Circle Award for radically reinterpreting a president in Lincoln at Gettysburg, does a comparably awesome job in Saint Augustine, a brief, revisionist account of the most modern (yet misunderstood) religious thinker of the fourth century.

    Survival of the Fittest?
    Suzanne Somers'
    Body and MindAfter the phenomenal success of Eat Great, Lose Weight, Suzanne Somers was flooded with letters and phone calls from people who had lost weight the "Somersize" way. They had followed Suzanne's satisfying and effective program and for the first time had gained control over their weight and their health. There was no more dieting, no more deprivation, and the pounds just seemed to melt away.
    Judith Reichman
    Mind and BodyReichman wisely avoids blaming testosterone deficiency for every sexual woe, however. She describes "Seven Sexual Saboteurs": psychological concerns, couple trouble, medications, disease, surgery, pain, and a partner with erectile difficulties. For each, she explains the problem and her recommended solution. She discusses (and, generally, dismisses) other products that are used or advertised as libido enhancers and gives advice about how to talk to your partner and to a sex therapist. --Joan Price
    Gari Zukav
    Heath and BeautyZukav questions the Western model of the soul, alleging that the human species is in the midst of a great transformation, evolving from a species that pursues power based upon the perceptions of the five senses--"external power"--to one that pursues power based upon perceptions of the soul--"authentic power." He believes that humans are immortal souls first, physical beings second, and that once we become conscious of this transformation--once we align our personalities with our soul--we will stimulate our spiritual growth and become better people in the process. This insightful, lucid synthesis of modern psychology and new-age principles has been described as the "physics of the soul." Who better to explain such heady concepts than Gary Zukav?
    Science Fiction
    Stephen King
    Superb thrillersBag of Bones is partly inspired by Daphne du Maurier's classic Rebecca, but there's more than homage in this novel of horror and romance. Like du Maurier's Manderley, King's scary old place (on the shore of Maine's remote Dark Score Lake) is haunted by the late lady of the manor. There are many gory ghosts afoot, though: men, women, and wailing kids. The hero, a thriller novelist, stirs up hell's plenty of angry shades while investigating his wife's death. It turns out she either had a dark secret herself or was onto some dread scandal lurking in Dark Score Lake. As in King's previous book, Wizard and Glass, the fabric of reality is thin, and nosy narrators are in peril of plunging right out of this world and into a rather hostile otherworld.
