Summary

The celebrated author of The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas explores the lives of three working-class women in this collection of stories.In Three Lives, Gertrude Stein creates portraits of three women in a fictional mid-Atlantic town. There’s Anna, who flees hardship in Germany to become a housekeeper in America. Then there is Melanctha, a street-smart black girl on a quest for knowledge and power. And finally, there is Lena, a German immigrant whose life is shaped around her passive nature. Published in 1909, Three Lives was Gertrude Stein’s first critically acclaimed work. It was influenced by the paintings of Cézanne, Picasso, and Matisse. In these pages, Stein experiments with language and literary form to tell the stories of three unforgettable women.

    This anthology explores the dark side of finance from Manhattan to Bangkok and Tel Aviv, featuring new stories by Jim Fusilli, Lauren Sanders and more.   Wall Street often looks like a gleaming world of high-end professionalism where decisions to buy or sell are guided by expertise, formulas and dispassionate strategy. And sure, that’s one version of Wall Street. Let’s call it the CNBC edition. But this book is about another place, just beneath that shiny surface: a place where fear and greed have always held sway. Think WorldCom or Tyco; think Enron. Think Gordon Gekko.  Wall Street Noir illuminates a place whose boundaries have spread well beyond Trinity Church and the East River. In today’s global economy, Wall Street is everywhere: a borderless, virtual city encompassing Midtown Manhattan, Main Street, U.S.A., the maquilas of Honduras, the office towers of Shanghai, and the brothels of Bangkok. It’s a shadowy metropolis, as the stories in this exciting collection reveal, and one that’s far more Jim Thompson than Warren Buffet.  Wall Street Noir includes brand-new stories by John Burdett, Henry Blodget, Peter Blauner, Jason Starr, Megan Abbott, Reed Farrel Coleman, Stephen Rhodes, Twist Phelan, Tim Broderick, Jim Fusilli, David Noonan, Richard Aleas, Lawrence Light, James Hime, Mark Haskell Smith, Peter Spiegelman, and Lauren Sanders.
