Book Summary :

A woman's life is upended after she witnesses the aftermath of a deadly crime. Natalie should have gone home after the party. One of New York's hottest literary agents, she was celebrating her latest coup -- next year's mega-thriller, sold at auction for $1.5 million. As the industry bows at her feet, Natalie can't help but think of her boss, Jay, a handsome dynamo who has been in love with her since her first day on the job. When the party ends, Natalie retreats to the office to clear her head. Lost in thought, she steps to the window -- and sees something that strikes fear into her heart. A man in a trench coat scurries down the sidewalk, stops in front of a construction site, and hurls a pistol over the wall. Natalie doesn't realize the significance of this until the man sees her watching. They make eye contact, and Natalie knows her life will never be the same -- now that a killer knows her face.

Book Summary :

In creative, analytical retellings of biblical tales about women, Aschkenasy demonstrates how recurring situations, dilemmas, and modes of conduct represent the politics of women’s realities in premodern civilization—how women’s lives in those times were characterized by social and legal limitations which some accepted and others challenged.

Book Summary :

“Astounding. Thrilling. Amazing.” —Gillian Flynn “Unputdownable.” —Stephen King “A dark, twisty confection.” —Ruth Ware “Absolutely gripping.” —Louise Penny For readers of Gillian Flynn and Tana French comes one of the decade’s most anticipated debuts, to be published in thirty-six languages around the world and already in development as a major film from Fox: a twisty, powerful Hitchcockian thriller about an agoraphobic woman who believes she witnessed a crime in a neighboring house. It isn’t paranoia if it’s really happening . . . Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare. What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is what it seems. Twisty and powerful, ingenious and moving, The Woman in the Window is a smart, sophisticated novel of psychological suspense that recalls the best of Hitchcock.

Book Summary :

In Stalin's Russia, the great poet Anna Ahkmatova is forbidden to write. In a future, denatured world, a young woman, Rachel, searches for what is missing in her life and the sterile world she inhabits. De Groen uses the lessons of a repressive, torturous chapter in history to illuminate an imagined sterile, artless future where the muses and gods of literature and science have virtually sunk without trace. In a world where a 'poet' means a man who researches poetry in the archives, where there is no nature or wildlife and the moon and stars are seen only in a virtual room created by accessing the science archives, Rachel becomes a dispossessed Akhmatova. When the literary archives, which are seldom accessed any more, are about to be switched off and the 'poets' de-listed, Rachel risks her life to save the poetry archives for future generations. (2 acts: 2 men, 5 women)

Total Pages : 356

Book Summary :

Representations of women in Indian cinema are often warped and twisted. They are subjected to a series of gazes - voyeuristic, investigative and titillating. The controlling look is always with the male. One film-maker who consistently steered clear of this right through his career was Satyajit Ray. None of Ray's women on celluloid can be reduced to a cliche. They defy every imaginable stereotyping. This is particularly true of the women in his adaptations of Tagore's stories. Woman at the Window attempts a completely new way of looking at Ray's films in general, and his films adapted from Tagore in particular, through contextualizing the women by objects they are surrounded by or are fond of, or are habituated to using or learning to use over time. What emerges is a one-of-its-kind book, indeed the first comprehensive study of this kind on the cinema of Ray which offers a greater understanding of the differences, or the absence thereof, between Tagore's original stories and Ray's celluloid readings of these stories, as also fascinating material for gender studies students, researchers, academics and scholars writing on cinema.

Book Summary :

In The Woman in the Window: Commerce, Consensual Fantasy, and the Quest for Masculine Virtue in the Russian Novel, Russell Scott Valentino offers pioneering new insights into the historical construction of virtue and its relation to the rapidly shifting economic context in modern Russia. This study illustrates how the traditional virtue ethic, grounded in property-based conceptions of masculine heroism, was eventually displaced by a new commercial ethic that rested upon consensual fantasy. The new economic world destabilized traditional Russian notions of virtue and posed a central question that Russian authors have struggled to answer since the early nineteenth century: How could a self-interested commercial man be incorporated into the Russian context as a socially valuable masculine character? With chapters on Gogol, Tolstoy, and Dostoevsky as well as Pasternak and Nabokov, The Woman in the Window argues that Russian authors worked through this question via their depictions of “mixed-up men.” Such characters, according to Valentino, reveal that in a world where social reality and personal identity depend on consensual fantasies, the old masculine figure loses its grounding and can easily drift away. Valentino charts a range of masculine character types thrown off stride by the new commercially inflected world: those who embrace blind confidence, those who are split with doubt or guilt, and those who look for an ideal of steadfastness and purity to keep afloat—a woman in a window.

Book Summary :

«– Да, непременно, если завтра погода будет хорошая, – сказала миссис Рэмзи. – Только уж встать придется пораньше, – прибавила она.Ее сына эти слова невероятно обрадовали, будто экспедиция твердо назначена и чудо, которого он ждал, кажется, целую вечность, теперь вот-вот, после ночной темноты и дневного пути по воде, наконец совершится. Принадлежа уже в свои шесть лет к славному цеху тех, кто не раскладывает ощущений по полочкам, для кого настоящее сызмальства тронуто тенью нависшего будущего и с первых дней каждый миг задержан и выделен, озарен или отуманен внезапным поворотом чувства, Джеймс Рэмзи, сидя на полу и вырезая картинки из иллюстрированного каталога Офицерского магазина, при словах матери наделил изображение ледника небесным блаженством. Ледник оправился в счастье. Тачка, газонокосилка, плеск поседевших, ждущих дождя тополей, грай грачей, шелест швабр и платьев – все это различалось и преображалось у него в голове, уже с помощью кода и тайнописи, тогда как воплощенная суровость на вид, он так строго поглядывал из-под высокого лба свирепыми, безупречно честными голубыми глазами на слабости человечества, что мать, следившая за аккуратным продвижением ножниц, воображала его вершителем правосудия в горностаях и пурпуре либо вдохновителем важных и неумолимых государственных перемен...»
