Summary

Félix Vallotton (1865-1925) was active at the turn of the century. Although he is best known for his striking and elegantly composed Japanese-inspired woodblock prints, Vallotton was also a skilled painter, creating works that arrestingly combined technical perfection with emotional realism. This seminal text provides readers with a fascinating assessment of the career of this revolutionary artist.

    The founder and editor of Florida Beer News serves up the brewing history and craft brewery scene of the Sunshine State’s west coast destination city.  
     
    More than thirty breweries currently call the Tampa Bay area home. With a history that spans a century, the brewing industry has experienced highs and lows. The end of Prohibition allowed more to join in on the brewers’ art. Anheuser-Busch’s emergence as a powerhouse caused a decades-long lull in craft brewing beginning in the 1960s. From the ceremonial brewing vessels of native peoples to the sleek brewhouses of modern craft brewers, the Bay area is a shining example of the developing trade. Author Mark DeNote recaps the sudsy history of beer makers in the Big Guava.

    No one under seventeen should be admitted without a parent or guardian to these “fun-filled” illustrations of twisted movie moments from a beloved animator (Parade). 
     
    Let’s face it, reading sucks . . . but movies are fun! In this grown-up parody of a children’s picture book, Pixar writer and artist Josh Cooley presents the most hilariously inappropriate—that is, the best—scenes from contemporary classic films in an illustrated, for-early-readers style.  
     
    Terrifying, sexy, and awesome scenes from such favorite films as Alien, Rosemary’s Baby, Fargo, Basic Instinct, Seven, The Silence of the Lambs, Apocalypse Now, The Shining, and many more are playfully illustrated and captioned to make reading fun and exciting for kids who never grew up. A sly celebration of the things fans love most about these legendary films (and movies in general), this is one book that probably should not be read at bedtime.

    “Charming, delightful, and enlightening . . .a constant reminder to live your life fully, forgive yourself daily, and love yourself more . . .[a] gem of a memoir” (Amy Ferris, author of Marrying George Clooney: Confessions from a Midlife Crisis).   With one bounced check, Nancy Brook’s world collapsed around her. She was charged with a felony and thrown in jail even though her husband had pilfered money out of their business account. Eventually, the charges were dismissed, but her marriage and business were over. A decade later at age forty-three, Nancy thrived as a bank vice president and single parent. Still, she couldn’t get her dating act together. After seven break-ups in seven years, she knew it was time for a change. The cure for her dating blues? A seven-hundred-mile cycling expedition from Bordeaux to the Alps.   In France, Nancy wasn’t a corporate manager, a mother, or someone’s girlfriend. She was reborn into a beautiful new world—without responsibilities or expectations. Cycling, Wine, and Men: A Midlife Tour de France reveals an introspective journey through post-divorce dating, single parenthood, and finding happiness and independence as an unattached woman in her prime. Nancy had thought the perfect guy would make life complete. Instead she learned that pursuing passions and fulfilling lifelong dreams created deeper fulfillment than her latest homme parfait. Experience the ride of a lifetime as Under the Tuscan Sun meets Sex and the City.   “Zippy read filled with heart and soul . . . Nancy Brook will make you shout ‘Vive la Chemin!’” —Suzy Gershman, author of C’est La Vie   “Cycling, Wine, and Men is sure to inspire others to follow their bliss.” —Theo Pauline Nestor, author of How to Sleep Alone in a King-Size Bed
