2009. 8. 1 NEW ARRIVALSLosing Mum and Pup: A Memoir
Author: Christopher Buckley
Genre: Literature & Fiction
“I had more or less resolved not to write a book about my parents. But I’m a writer, and when the universe hands you material like this, not writing about it amounts either to waste or a conscious act of evasion.”
So begins award-winning satirist Christopher Buckley in the most personal and transcendent work of his life, the tragicomic true story of the year in which both of his parents died.
Author: Dave Cullen
When we think of Columbine, we think of the Trench Coat Mafia; we think of Cassie Bernall, the girl we thought professed her faith before she was shot; and we think of the boy pulling himself out of a school window. Now, in a riveting piece of journalism nearly 10 years in the making, comes the story none of us knew. In this revelatory book, Dave Cullen has delivered a profile of teenage killers that goes to the heart of psychopathology. He lays bare the callous brutality of mastermind Eric Harris and the quavering, suicidal Dylan Klebold, who went to the prom three days earlier and obsessed about love in his journal.

Master of War: Blackwater USA’s Erik Prince and the Business of War
Author: Suzanne Simons
CNN executive producer Simons balances private and public accounts of Erik Prince, founder and owner of the country’s most notorious private military contractor. In this often glowing, mildly critical portrait, Prince is depicted as a fierce individualist, visionary entrepreneur and patriot, a guy’s guy born into enormous privilege, right-wing values and Beltway ties. Simons’ premise - that all questions arising from Blackwater’s relevance go back to one man - justifies emphasis on the personal, but the book is most instructive when straying to include Dick Cheney’s impact on Pentagon outsourcing or General Sanchez’s frustration over boundary confusion in Iraq between U.S. soldiers and the State Department’s veritable private army.
My Life in France
Author: Julia Child
Julia Child single-handedly awakened America to the pleasures of good cooking with her cookbook “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” and her television show “The French Chef,” but as she reveals in this bestselling memoir, she didn’t know the first thing about cooking when she landed in France.
Child’s unforgettable story unfolds with the spirit so key to her success as a cook and teacher and writer, brilliantly capturing one of the most endearing American personalities of the last 50 years.
