В литературния живот на ХХ век името Стефан Цвайг (1881 - 1942) оставя отпечатък в много области; австийският писател твори в областта на романа, разказа, биографията, драмата, занимава се с журналистика. Известен е на българския читател най-вече със знаменитите си биографии на Мария Антоанета, Мария Стюард, Еразъм Ротердамски, докато разказите и повестите му остават донякъде в сянка.
В най-новия си брой списание BIOGRAPH се стреми да запълни тази празнота, като предлага на читателя три от тези изключителни повести, пропити не само с усета на Цвайг за езика в цялата му богата изразност, а и с болезненото осъзнаване на актуалните за неговото време проблеми на войната през очите на обикновения човек, смазващата хватка на инфлацията, отразена в житейската съдба на малките хора с техните радости, както и на винаги живата тема за копнежа на човешкото сърце. Една от тези повести - "Писмо на една непозната" - през 1948 година е претворена във филм на Хауърд Кох, предложен от Библиотеката на конгреса на САЩ за съхраняване в Националния филмов регистър на САЩ като "културно, исторически и естетически значим" - признание не само за филма, а и за автора на едноименната повест, останал в историята на литературата като един от писателите с най-гъвкаво перо. Сборникът съдържа повестите: "Невидимата сбирка" "Случката край Женевското езеро" "Писмо на една непозната"
New York Times bestselling author Janet Chapman welcomes you back to Spellbound Falls, where love and magic can conquer anything… After forty years of marriage, Rana Oceanus has done the unthinkable and run away from her mighty, magical husband. Not that she ran very far, having purchased a house in Spellbound Falls right on the shore of the Bottom Sea, where she intends to prepare for the scariest battle of her life. The only flaw in her plan, however, is that she is still very much in love with Titus… Shocked and deeply shaken that his wife really has left him—though he still can’t fathom why—Titus sets out to win her back. But when grand gestures of his esteem don’t seem to further his cause, he conjures up some of his original courtship magic to capture the heart of the beautiful young maiden all over again. Then his plan takes a dangerous turn when Titus discovers that dealing with demons is far threatening than the little secret his very mortal wife has been keeping from him…

“Important, possibly life-altering, reading for every living, breathing human being." -- Boston Globe In Cooked, Michael Pollan explores the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen.
Here, he discovers the enduring power of the four classical elements—fire, water, air, and earth—to transform the stuff of nature into delicious things to eat and drink. Apprenticing himself to a succession of culinary masters, Pollan learns how to grill with fire, cook with liquid, bake bread, and ferment everything from cheese to beer. Each section of Cooked tracks Pollan’s effort to master a single classic recipe using one of the four elements.
A North Carolina barbecue pit master tutors him in the primal magic of fire; a Chez Panisse–trained cook schools him in the art of braising; a celebrated baker teaches him how air transforms grain and water into a fragrant loaf of bread; and finally, several mad-genius “fermentos” (a tribe that includes brewers, cheese makers, and all kinds of picklers) reveal how fungi and bacteria can perform the most amazing alchemies of all. The reader learns alongside Pollan, but the ons move beyond the practical to become an investigation of how cooking involves us in a web of social and ecological relationships.
Cooking, above all, connects us. The effects of not cooking are similarly far reaching.
Relying upon corporations to process our food means we consume large quantities of fat, sugar, and salt; disrupt an essential link to the natural world; and weaken our relationships with family and friends. In fact, Cooked argues, taking back control of cooking may be the single most important step anyone can take to help make the American food system healthier and more sustainable. Reclaiming cooking as an act of enjoyment and self-reliance, learning to perform the magic of these everyday transformations, opens the door to a more nourishing life.

As a unique guide to coping with life-limiting illness, The Journey Home, Stories of Compassion and Inspiration from AseraCare Hospice is a book that provides a resource for patients, families and physicians who struggle with how and when to discuss the hospice option. The book was authored by K.T.
Anders and John Ross, and published by AseraCare Hospice. It offers a firsthand look at the benefits of hospice through more than 60 personal accounts of AseraCare patients.
The book guides patients and family members through the decision-making process, the roles of the care team and, ultimately, bereavement. The book provides examples of how to broach the hospice conversation and how to present it as a positive option. It reinforces the perspective of hospice as a valuable component of care delivered to a patient with terminal illness. Anders, the book’s author, knew hospice and its benefits well. Anders’ mother had undergone hospice, and unbeknownst to AseraCare, Anders herself was seeking treatment for a terminal illness that eventually brought her to hospice. Her husband wrote the final chapter dealing with bereavement after Anders passed away. With this book, Anders’ journey has created a lasting body of knowledge on which others can draw.
