Summary

This edition includes the following editor's analysis: The traumatic life of J. M. Barrie, source of universal creativity


First published in 1902, “The Admirable Crichton” is a comic stage play written by Scottish novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie, best remembered as the creator of Peter Pan.

“The Admirable Crichton” is a satirical comedy dealing with class and social structure. The play tells the story of an English family and a few of their servants, who get stranded on a deserted island for two years. In England the aristocracy was in charge and the servants loyally followed orders from them; however, on the island things are very different! So...what happens when they are rescued and all go back to England? Will everything go back to "normal"?

"The Admirable Crichton" is an interesting and entertaining play, but thoughtful at the same time.

    Don't think that because it is such a small country with only about 17 million people, it should be neglected. The Netherlands has a long history, with a high influence on our cultures, trading routes, the stock market, business, and art. 
    The Dutch were all over the world. They "owned" and colonized a big portion of what was then the known world. They were among the first settlers, had the biggest haven and biggest fleet for some time. The Dutch East-Indian Trading Company, or VOC, is probably the biggest or at least one of the biggest companies that has ever existed, with its shareholders, its ships, its spices and trading routes, and so much more. Learn more about what happened in the same area that's currently the United States, South Africa, Indonesia, and so many areas across the world. 
    In this book, we will begin with the Dutch settlers on the east coast of the United States, their settlements in Indonesia and other Asian countries, and their vast group of colonists in South Africa.

    The Whole Okra - A Seed to Stem...

    With recipes for gumbos and stews, plus okra pickles, tofu, marshmallow, paper, and more 
    Chris Smith’s first encounter with okra was of the worst kind: slimy fried okra at a greasy-spoon diner. Despite that dismal introduction, Smith developed a fascination with okra, and as he researched the plant and began to experiment with it in his own kitchen, he discovered an amazing range of delicious ways to cook and eat it, along with ingenious and surprising ways to process the plant from tip-to-tail: pods, leaves, flowers, seeds, and stalks. Smith talked okra with chefs, food historians, university researchers, farmers, homesteaders, and gardeners. The summation of his experimentation and research comes together in The Whole Okra, a lighthearted but information-rich collection of okra history, lore, recipes, craft projects, growing advice, and more. 
    The Whole Okra includes classic recipes such as fried okra pods as well as unexpected delights including okra seed pancakes and okra flower vodka. Some of the South’s best-known chefs shared okra recipes with Smith: Okra Soup by culinary historian Michael Twitty, Limpin’ Susan by chef BJ Dennis, Bhindi Masala by chef Meherwan Irani, and Okra Fries by chef Vivian Howard. 
    Okra has practical uses beyond the edible, and Smith also researched the history of okra as a fiber crop for making paper and the uses of okra mucilage (slime) as a preservative, a hydrating face mask, and a primary ingredient in herbalist Katrina Blair’s recipe for Okra Marshmallow Delight. 
    The Whole Okra is foremost a foodie’s book, but Smith also provides practical tips and techniques for home and market gardeners. He gives directions for saving seed for replanting, for a breeding project, or for a stockpile of seed for making okra oil, okra flour, okra tempeh, and more. Smith has grown over 75 varieties of okra, and he describes the nuanced differences in flavor, texture, and color; the best-tasting varieties; and his personal favorites. Smith’s wry humor and seed-to-stem enthusiasm for his subject infuse every chapter with just the right mix of fabulous recipes and culinary tips, unique projects, and fun facts about this vagabond vegetable with enormous potential.

    A “stunningly funny” encyclopedia of practical wisdom on marriage, infidelity, motherhood, sex, fashion, friendship, work, self-discovery, and more (Publishers Weekly, starred review).Featuring more than five hundred entries of sage advice, The Book for Dangerous Women shows us how to get through life with a little grace and a lot of fun—from how to accept compliments to when to wear “cami-knickers” to how to deal with ambivalence (toward lovers, friends, or foes), and why owning a cat and a fancy dress may be more fulfilling than sex.Like a dictionary, topics are cross-referenced and many include insights from the famed and infamous, such as Oscar Wilde, Coco Chanel, Mae West, Eve Ensler, Albert Camus, Anaïs Nin, and William Shakespeare. A typical progression of entries is: Affairs, Age, Arrangements, Bananas, Beauty, and Beds, followed by Bereavement, Birthdays, BFs, Blueberries, and Bolt Holes.From those conversations and counseling sessions with your mother, sisters, daughters, and friends to those moments in life that only women can understand, The Book for Dangerous Women is the grown-up and contemporary reference book every woman needs. “Celebrates the art of being fabulous and female at fifteen, fifty, and far beyond.” —Daily Telegraph
