Book Excerpt :

Do you love Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice? How about Persuasion and Emma? Then you will love her unfinished novel "The Watsons". The story revolves around the life and misfortunes of Emma Watson after the death of her aunt. She moves to live with her distant father and his family, only to find out that there are family issues lurking deep beneath the surface that threaten to destroy her ambitions and desires. "The Watsons" is an entertaining and sympathetic portrayal of family life, and will leave the reader wanting more. Jane Austen (1775-1817) is one of the most beloved British writers of all time. During her short life she published six novels: ́Sense and Sensibility ́, ́Pride and Prejudice ́, ́Mansfield Park ́, ́Emma ́, ́Northanger Abbey ́ and ́Persuasion ́, that are all considered as literary classics today. Her writing is full of sharp observations on the society in which she evolved, as well as ripe with timeless irony, and a solid dose of humour. She has created immortal characters that have inspired countless authors, novels, and movies such as Bridget Jones and Clueless. The most notable film adapted from a Jane Austen novel is Pride and Prejudice from 2005 starring Keira Knightley (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Matthew Macfadyen.

Book Short Summary:

Twelve-year-old Ellie Tremont is b-o-r-e-d, bored, and she wishes something, anything, would happen. So when 14-year-old Tommy Bowers moves in next door, with his lanky swagger and his troubled past, Ellie knows her summer is about to get interesting. When Tommy suggests they start a camp for the kids on their street under their elderly neighbors’(the Watsons’) porch, Ellie quickly agrees to that, and everything else Tommy suggests. And when Tommy gives her a diamond necklace that he says he bought, she’s suspicious, though smitten. But by the time her parents forbid her from seeing him, she’s given him her heart. Soon, though, Tommy goes too far and even Ellie isn’t sure what to make of him.

Book Short Summary:

Three delightful short works from across Jane Austen's career, brought together in one volume with an introduction by Margaret Drabble These three works show Jane Austen writing in a variety of styles, from melodrama to satire, and exploring a range of classes and settings. The early epistolary novel Lady Susan depicts an unscrupulous coquette, toying with several men. The Watsons is a delightful fragment, whose spirited heroine finds her marriage opportunities restricted by poverty and pride. Written in the last months of Austen's life, the tantalising incomplete novel Sanditon features a glorious cast of hypochondriacs and speculators in a newly established seaside resort, and shows the author contemplating a changing society with scepticism and amusement. 'In [Sanditon] she exploits her greatest gifts ... The book feels open and modern ... as vigorous and inventive as her earlier work' Carol Shields If you enjoyed Lady Susan, The Watsons and Sanditon, you may like Charlotte Brontë's Tales of Angria, also available in Penguin Classics.

Book Short Summary:

'I am tired of submitting my will to the caprices of others-of resigning my own judgement in deference to those to whom I owe no duty, and for whom I feel no respect.' The unfinished fictions collected here are the novels and other writing that Jane Austen did not publish. The protagonist of the earliest story is Lady Susan, a sexual predator and a brilliant and manipulative sociopath. The Watsons, a tale of riches to rags, is set in a village deep in mud and misery where the Watson sisters waste away, day after dull day, waiting for the suitors who never appear. Sanditon, the novel interrupted by the author's death, is a topical satire on the niche marketing campaign waged by investors in the latest seaside resort, the fictional Sanditon, situated on England's over-supplied south coast. If The Watsons shares the disturbed life of a Chekhov short story, Sanditon's cast of eccentrics anticipates the zany world of Dickens. Experimental and sharp-elbowed, all three probe new areas of invention and push out beyond what we expect to find in a novel by Jane Austen. This edition collects together all Austen's unpublished adult fiction, poetry, and related writings, written in her late teens, in her late twenties, and in the year she died, aged forty-one. They contribute more than a dash of discomfort to our modern image of the romantic novelist and reveal Jane Austen's development as a writer.

Book Short Summary:

'...in suspecting General Tilney of either murdering or shutting up his wife, she had scarcely sinned against his character, or magnified his cruelty.' Northanger Abbey is about the misadventures of Catherine Morland, young, ingenuous, and mettlesome, and an indefatigable reader of gothic novels. Their romantic excess and dark overstatement feed her imagination, as tyrannical fathers and diabolical villains work their evil on forlorn heroines in isolated settings. What could be more remote from the uneventful securities of life in the midland counties of England? Yet as Austen brilliantly contrasts fiction with reality, ordinary life takes a more sinister turn, and edginess and circumspection are reaffirmed alongside comedy and literary burlesque. Also including Austen's other short fictions, Lady Susan, The Watsons, and Sanditon, this valuable new edition examines the ambitious and innovative works with which she inaugurated as well as closed her career. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Book Short Summary:

For an extraordinary fifty-seven-year period, one of the nation's largest and fastest-growing companies was run by two men who were flesh and blood. The chief executives of the International Business Machines Corporation from 1914 until 1971 were Thomas J. Watson and Thomas J. Watson, father and son. That great corporation bears the imprint of both men -- their ambitions and their strengths -- but it also bears the consequences of a family that was in near-constant conflict. Sometimes wrong but never in doubt, both Watsons had clear -- and farsighted -- visions of what their company could become. They also had volcanic tempers. Their fights with each other combined with their commitment to leadership and excellence made IBM one of the most rewarding, yet gut-clutching firms to work for in the history of American business. We are accustomed to describing professional behavior as if men and women leave their emotions and vulnerabilities at home each day. In the case of the Watsons, filial and sibling strife could not be excluded from the office. In closely studying the desires and frustrations of the Watson family, eminent historian Richard S. Tedlow has produced something more than a family portrait or a company history. He has raised the nearly forbidden issue of the role of emotion in corporate life. This book explores the interplay between the person- alities of these two extraordinary men and the firm they created. Both Watsons had deeply held beliefs about what a corporation is and should be. These ideas helped make "Big Blue" the bluest of blue-chip stocks during the Watsons' tenure. These very beliefs, however, also sowed the seeds for IBM's disasters in the late 1980s and early 1990s, when the company had lost sight of the original meaning behind many of the practices each man put into place. Tracing the family's idiosyncratic ability to cope with each other's weaknesses but not their strengths, The Watson Dynasty is a book for every person who ever went to work but didn't want to check his personality at the door.

Book Short Summary:

This volume contains two novels by English author Jane Austen. “Lady Susan” is a short novel by Jane Austen, written in 1794 and first published in 1871. Presented as a series of letters, it tells the story of the beautiful yet notorious Lady Susan and her schemes to find an advantageous second marriage for herself, while also forcing her daughter into a loveless match. Unfinished at the time her Austen’s death, “The Watsons” follows Emma, a young clergyman’s daughter who, due to her Aunt’s second marriage, is forced to return to her father's house where she is appalled by the shallow husband-hunting of two of her sisters. Jane Austen (1775 – 1817) was an English author known primarily for her novels, which critique the 18th century English upper classes and contemporary novels of sensibility. Her use of irony coupled with biting social commentary and realism have led to her wide acclaim amongst scholars and critics, her work contributing to the transition to 19th-century literary realism. Other notable works by this author include: “Sense and Sensibility” (1811), “Pride and Prejudice” (1813), and “Mansfield Park” (1814). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

Book Short Summary:

Jane Austen gave life to the fictional Watson family in 1803, but sadly abandoned them five chapters in. Acclaimed author Joan Aiken completed their story in her ingenious novel, Emma Watson. Emma Watson has been brought up by her aunt in a wealthy and refined household, an educated lifestyle far removed from her widowed father and five siblings. So when her aunt enters into an imprudent second marriage, nineteen-year-old Emma is sent back home and must join her sisters in their pursuit of a husband . . . Aiken takes on the fate of Austen’s characters with confidence and skill, flawlessly entwining themes of loss and love together in this stunning regency pastiche. ‘Joan Aiken’s invention seemed inexhaustible, her high spirits a blessing, her sheer storytelling zest a phenomenon. She was a literary treasure, and her books will continue to delight for many years to come’ – Philip Pullman

Book Short Summary:

왓슨 가족(The Watsons)은 제인 오스틴이 생전에 완성하지도, 발표하지도 않은 미완성작이자 미발표작입니다. 1803년부터 1805년, 그녀가 바스(Bath)에 거주할 당시 집필한 것으로 추정됩니다. 그녀의 사망 후 자매 카산드라에게 상속되었으며, 이후 여러 과정을 거쳐 1925년 미국 뉴욕의 모건 도서관(Morgan Library & Museum)과 2011년 영국 옥스퍼드 보들리언 도서관(Bodleian Library)이 각각 원고의 일부를 인수하였습니다. 테마여행신문 TTN Korea 영어고전(English Classics)과 함께 어제도, 오늘도, 내일도 멋진 문학여행을! B “Poverty is a great evil; but to a woman of education and feeling it ought not, it cannot be the greatest. I would rather be teacher at a school (and I can think of nothing worse) than marry a man I did not like.” “가난은 큰 악입니다. 그러나 가난을 교육받고 느끼는 여성에게는 가난이 가장 큰 악이 될 수 없습니다. 마음에 안 드는 남자와 결혼하느니 차라리 학교에서 교사가 되겠어요.” 소설에 등장하는 왓슨 씨(Mr. Watson)는 아들 둘과 딸 넷을 둔 홀아비로, 그의 막내딸 엠마(Emma)가 여주인공으로 등장합니다. 2주간의 짧은 기간 동안 엠마가 이모(aunt)의 재혼, 아버지 댁에서의 생활, 언니들의 구혼, 마을 무도회, 오스본 경(Lord Osborne)의 초대 등을 겪는 과정을 담담하게 묘사한 것이 소설의 주요 내용으로 미완성작답게 뚜렷한 결말이 그려져 있지는 않습니다. 제인 오스틴의 원고는 별도의 챕터가 구분되어 있지도 않았을 뿐더러, 특별히 제목도 정해지지 않은 약 7,500자(7,500 words) 분량의 습작이지만 제인 오스틴의 조카 제임스 에드워드 오스틴-리(James Edward Austen-Leigh)(1798~1874)의 편집으로 제인 오스틴 회고록(A Memoir of Jane Austen)(1871)을 통해 세상에 공개되었습니다. “I shall retreat in as much secrecy as possible to the most remote corner of the house, where I shall order a barrel of oysters, and be famously snug.” “저는 최대한 비밀리에 집의 가장 먼 구석으로 물러갈 것이고, 그곳에서 굴 한 통을 주문하고, 포근하기로 유명합니다.” 작가가 결말을 완성하지 않았기 때문에 이는 수많은 작가들의 영감을 불러 일으켰습니다. 제인 오스틴의 조카 캐서린 허브백(Catherine Hubback)은 미완성작을 토대로 3권 분량의 소설 여동생(The Younger Sister)(1950)을 발표하였는데, 이는 제인 오스틴 회고록(A Memoir of Jane Austen)(1871)을 통해 왓슨 가족(The Watsons)이 세상에 공개되기도 전입니다. “Emma; but you must think him agreeable. Can you lay your hand on your heart, and say you do not? - Indeed I can, Both Hands; and spread to their widest extent.” “엠마, 하지만 당신은 그가 마음이 맞는다고 생각해야 합니다. 가슴에 손을 얹고 아니라고 말할 수 있나요? - 두 손 모두 할 수 있습니다. 그리고 가장 넓은 범위까지 퍼질 수 있습니다.” 1928년에는 캐서린 허브백의 손녀(the granddaughter of Catherine Hubback), 즉 오스틴의 증손녀 에디스 브라운(Edith Brown)이, 1977년에는 에디스 브라운의 조카(a niece of Edith Brown), 다이애나 허백의 남편(the husband of Diana Hubback) David Hopkinson(1914~2002)이 제인 오스틴의 후손 자격으로 집필한 작품을 발표하였습니다. 왓슨 가족(The Watsons)은 국내에 번역조차 되지 않은 작품입니다만, 최소한 영국에서는 ‘제인 오스틴 가문의 연속 작품’으로 꾸준히 재탄생하고 있는 독특한 소설인 셈이지요! “...the employment of mind and dissipation of unpleasant ideas which only reading could produce made her thankfully turn to a book.” “...독서만이 만들어 낼 수 있는 마음의 노력과 불쾌한 생각의 방탕이 감사하게도 그녀는 책을 읽게 되었습니다.” 탐욕스러운 오스틴 산업(the rapacious Austen industry) : 제인 오스틴의 후손들이 그녀의 후손임을 내세워 ‘가문 내에서 전해져 내려오는 제인 오스틴의 이야기’를 작품을 통해 엿볼 수 있다는 점을 내세웠다면 다른 작가들은 보다 개성적인 캐릭터와 독특한 설정을 강조했습니다.

Book Short Summary:

“The most brilliant Austen-adjacent book on the market. . . . Flynn’s style makes this a quick, fun read, and since the story is Jane-related there’s even a romantic subplot.” — Vulture “What lover of literature hasn’t dreamed of going back in time to meet Jane Austen? . . . . Kathleen A. Flynn brings this dream to life, creating a vivid portrait of Regency England in all its glory and squalor.” —Lauren Belfer, author of After the Fire and A Fierce Radiance Perfect for fans of Jane Austen, this engrossing novel offers an unusual twist on the legacy of one of the world's most celebrated and beloved authors: two researchers from the future are sent back in time to meet Jane and recover a suspected unpublished novel. London, 1815: Two travelers—Rachel Katzman and Liam Finucane—arrive in a field in rural England, disheveled and weighed down with hidden money. Turned away at a nearby inn, they are forced to travel by coach all night to London. They are not what they seem, but rather colleagues who have come back in time from a technologically advanced future, posing as wealthy West Indies planters—a doctor and his spinster sister. While Rachel and Liam aren’t the first team from the future to “go back,” their mission is by far the most audacious: meet, befriend, and steal from Jane Austen herself. Carefully selected and rigorously trained by The Royal Institute for Special Topics in Physics, disaster-relief doctor Rachel and actor-turned-scholar Liam have little in common besides the extraordinary circumstances they find themselves in. Circumstances that call for Rachel to stifle her independent nature and let Liam take the lead as they infiltrate Austen’s circle via her favorite brother, Henry. But diagnosing Jane’s fatal illness and obtaining an unpublished novel hinted at in her letters pose enough of a challenge without the continuous convolutions of living a lie. While her friendship with Jane deepens and her relationship with Liam grows complicated, Rachel fights to reconcile the woman she is with the proper lady nineteenth-century society expects her to be. As their portal to the future prepares to close, Rachel and Liam struggle with their directive to leave history intact and exactly as they found it. . . however heartbreaking that may prove.

"Youngsters are sure to delight in the exploits of this butter-loving pig, savoring the ‘wonky in the extreme’ text and energetic, innocent art." -School Library Journal Features an audio read-along! Some may find it wonky to take a pig to the drive-in. But not the Watsons, who think the movie’s title, When Pigs Fly, is inspirational. And not their beloved Mercy, who is inspired by the scent of real butter from the theater’s Bottomless Buckets of popcorn. As they pull up in their convertible, Mercy lifts up her snout and becomes a pig on a mission, leading a delirious chase that’s trailed by hapless rescuers reunited from Mercy’s earlier adventures.

Book Short Summary:

A “stunning blend of reportage, travelogue, history and meditation” by the New York Times–bestselling author of King Leopold’s Ghost (Publishers Weekly). National Book Award finalist Adam Hochschild brings a lifetime’s familiarity with South Africa to bear in this eye-opening examination of a critical turning point in that nation’s history: the Great Trek of 1836–39, during which Dutch-speaking white settlers, known as Boers, journeyed deep into the country’s interior to escape the British colonial administration. The mass migration culminated with the massacre of indigenous Zulus in the 1838 Battle of Blood River. Looking at the tensions of modern South Africa through the dramatic prism of the nineteenth century, Hochschild vividly recreates the battle—and its contentious commemoration by rival groups 150 years later. In his epilogue, Hochschild extends his view to the astonishing political changes that have occurred in the country in recent decades—and the changes yet to be made. Hochschild’s incisive take on these events, noted Nadine Gordimer, “is far more than an outsider’s perception of the drama of our country. Read him, in particular, to understand the rise of white extremism which is threatening the democratic vision of the African National Congress and its allied progressive constituency among people of all colors.” “A good book for anyone who wants a succinct and precise account of how this fascinating country has got where it is. . . . This is a book I recommend warmly.” —Archbishop Desmond Tutu “One of the most illuminating books ever written on contemporary South Africa.” —Publishers Weekly “Thoroughly researched, immensely readable . . . A work of vivid reportage and astute political analysis.” —San Francisco Chronicle

Book Short Summary:

New Ideas from Dead CEOs uncovers the secrets of success of great CEOs by giving readers an intimate look at their professional and personal lives. Why did Ray Kroc's plan for McDonald's thrive when many burger joints failed? And how, decades later, did Krispy Kreme fail to heed Kroc's hard-won lessons? How did Walt Disney's most dismal day as a young cartoonist radically change his career? When Estée Lauder was a child in Queens, New York, the average American spent $8 a year on toiletries. Why did she spot an opportunity in selling high-priced cosmetics, and why did she pound on Saks's doors? How did Thomas Watson Jr. decide to roll the dice and put all of IBM's chips on computing, when his father thought it could be a losing idea? We learn about these CEOs' greatest challenges and failures, and how they successfully rode the waves of demographic and technological change. New Ideas from Dead CEOs not only gives us fascinating insights into these CEOs' lives, but also shows how we can apply their ideas to the present-day triumphs and struggles of Sony, Dell, Costco, Carnival Cruises, Time Warner, and numerous other companies trying to figure out how to stay on top or climb back up. The featured CEOs in this book were not candidates for sainthood. Many of them knew "god" only as a prefix to "dammit." But they were devoted to their businesses, not just to their egos and their personal bank accounts and yachts. Extraordinarily fresh and deeply thoughtful, Todd G. Buchholz's New Ideas from Dead CEOs is a truly enjoyable and fun—yet serious and realistic—look at what we still have to learn and absorb from these decomposing CEOs.

Book Short Summary:

A Creole woman’s secrets about the Kennedy assassination lure a detective from Colorado to the Louisiana swamps in search of the truth. In the wake of an earthquake, the mummified body of Antoine Ducane, a Creole member of the Louisiana underworld, is exhumed from the rubble of the Eisenhower Memorial Tunnel. Before he disappeared decades ago, Ducane claimed to know the truth of JFK’s assassination—and its link to the president’s own covert anti-Castro mission: Operation Mongoose. Now that an acquaintance of Ducane’s has been murdered, curiosity draws bail bondsman–turned–antiques dealer C. J. Floyd to the mystery. It doesn’t help that his close friend, an ex-Mafia don with a passion for western collectibles, has his own connection to Ducane that could prove just as lethal. No sooner does C. J. begin investigating than he’s dodging mob assassins, con men, Cuban rebels, JKF conspiracy theorists, and the CIA. And he can’t be sure who would kill to know Ducane’s secrets and who would kill to keep them buried. Either way, a fire has been ignited under the dogged amateur sleuth. Enlisting the aid of his former bounty-hunter partners, C. J. is ready to make his move down a deceptive and dangerous trail that will take him from the mountains of Colorado to the backwoods of Louisiana—where a frail, long-silent, still-grieving Creole mother holds the key to the greatest political cover-up of all time. Bestselling author Robert Greer has been hailed as a “taut, powerful writer” (The Plain Dealer). Fans of hardboiled detective stories or the novels of Walter Mosley will enjoy his series featuring a tough African American sleuth in the modern-day West. The Mongoose Deception is the 6th book in the C. J. Floyd Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
