Summary

Leonard Merrick's 'One Man's View' is a compelling collection of essays exploring the intricate relationship between society and the individual. The book delves deep into the complexities of human nature, examining themes of morality, identity, and social justice. Merrick's eloquent prose and thought-provoking insights make this work a must-read for anyone interested in delving into the philosophical musings of the early 20th century. The essays are written in a contemplative and introspective style, inviting readers to reflect on their own beliefs and values as they navigate through the diverse perspectives presented in the text. Leonard Merrick, a prominent English author known for his keen observations of human behavior, draws upon his own personal experiences and upbringing to inform the essays in 'One Man's View'. His background in law and social activism provides a unique lens through which to analyze the societal issues discussed in the book, adding depth and credibility to his arguments. I highly recommend 'One Man's View' to anyone seeking a thought-provoking read that challenges conventional thinking and offers new insights into the complexities of human nature and society.

    'At least that post-Reformation sovereignty of the word still yields novels as richly imagined and skilfully crafted as this' The Spectator
    Things change; we have to recognise that; the world will not stay still. What we must hope is that the new is better and stronger than the old.
    Anno Domini 1546. In a manor house in England a young woman feels the walls are closing round her, while her dying husband is obsessed by his vision of a chapel where prayers will be said for his immortal soul.
    As the days go by and the chapel takes shape, the outside world starts to intrude. And as the old ways are replaced by the new, the people of the village sense a dangerous freedom.
    The Book of Days is a beautifully written novel of lives lived in troubled times and the solace to be found in nature and the turning seasons.

    In 1935, Dottie Krasinsky is the epitome of the modern girl. A bookkeeper in Midtown Manhattan, Dottie steals kisses from her steady beau, meets her girlfriends for drinks, and eyes the latest fashions. Yet at heart, she is a dutiful daughter, living with her Yiddish-speaking parents on the Lower East Side. So when, after a single careless night, she finds herself in a family way by a charismatic but unsuitable man, she is desperate: unwed, unsure, and running out of options. After the birth of five children—and twenty years as a housewife—Dottie's immigrant mother, Rose, is itching to return to the social activism she embraced as a young woman. With strikes and breadlines at home and National Socialism rising in Europe, there is much more important work to do than cooking and cleaning. So when she realizes that she, too, is pregnant, she struggles to reconcile her longings with her faith. As mother and daughter wrestle with unthinkable choices, they are forced to confront their beliefs, the changing world, and the fact that their lives will never again be the same . . .

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (1452-1519) was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer.

    This Man Booker Award Finalist and Commonwealth Prize-winner is an “unforgettable” tale of crime and survival in colonial Australia (Chicago Tribune).   In 1806 William Thornhill, an illiterate English bargeman and a man of quick temper but deep compassion, steals a load of wood and, as a part of his lenient sentence, is deported, along with his beloved wife, Sal, to the New South Wales colony in what would become Australia. The Secret River is the tale of William and Sal’s deep love for their small, exotic corner of the new world, and William’s gradual realization that if he wants to make a home for his family, he must forcibly take the land from the people who came before him.   Acclaimed around the world, The Secret River is a “magnificent” work of historical fiction that “pulls us ever deeper into a time when one community’s opportunity spelled another’s doom” (The New Yorker).

    From New York to Europe, the apartments of the nouveau riche to ancient French estates, Edith Wharton tells the story of Undine Spragg, a girl from a Midwestern town with unquenchable social aspirations. Though Undine is narcissistic, pampered, and incredibly selfish, she is a beguiling heroine whose marital initiation into New York high society from its trade-wealthy fringes is only the beginning of her relentless ambitions. Wharton weaves an elaborate plot that renders a detailed depiction of upper-class social behavior in the early twentieth century. By utilizing a character with inexorable greed in a novel of manners, she demonstrates some of the customs of a modern age and posits a surprising explanation for divorce and the social role of women, which still resonates for the modern audience today.
