Rake, drunkard, aesthete, gossip, raconteur extraordinaire: the narrator of Bohumil Hrabal’s rambling, rambunctious masterpiece Dancing Lessons for the Advanced in Age is all these and more. Speaking to a group of sunbathing women who remind him of lovers past, this elderly roué tells the story of his life—or at least unburdens himself of a lifetime’s worth of stories. Thus we learn of amatory conquests (and humiliations), of scandals both private and public, of military adventures and domestic feuds, of what things were like “in the days of the monarchy” and how they’ve changed since. As the book tumbles restlessly forward, and the comic tone takes on darker shadings, we realize we are listening to a man talking as much out of desperation as from exuberance. Hrabal, one of the great Czech writers of the twentieth century, as well as an inveterate haunter of Prague’s pubs and football stadiums, developed a unique method which he termed “palavering,” whereby characters gab and soliloquize with abandon. Part drunken boast, part soul-rending confession, part metaphysical poem on the nature of love and time, this astonishing novel (which unfolds in a single monumental sentence) shows why he has earned the admiration of such writers as Milan Kundera, John Banville, and Louise Erdrich.

Her mother’s death and her father’s madness leave G unloved and unwanted as a child. Her runaway marriage brings her children but not the fulfillment she yearns for. Many years later, a hurricane destroys her Jamaican country house where she now lives alone and she ends up—unwillingly—in a ritzy retirement home in the city, placed there by her well-to-do but distant daughter. Displaced and angry, G is forced to deal with her seemingly incompatible housemates and the pain of her past. Surprisingly, she ends up learning to love and laugh, to reconnect with the children she thought she had lost, and to finally gain a sense of belonging. Told in G’s voice as she writes in her journal—a newfound solace from pain—Dancing Lessons is by turns sad, satirical, hilarious, and ultimately redemptive. It is infused with the cadences and color of Jamaica, yet it connects with anyone anywhere who engages with notions of family, love, loss, friendship, and belonging.

A year after her husband’s death in a sailing accident off Martha’s Vineyard, Ellen Boisvert bumps into an old friend. In this chance encounter, she discovers that her immigrant husband of almost fifteen years was not an orphan after all. Instead, his aged mother Jo is alive and residing on the family’s isolated farm in the west of Ireland. Faced with news of her mother-in-law incarnate, the thirty-nine-year-old American prep school teacher decides to travel to Ireland to investigate the truth about her husband Fintan and why he kept his family’s existence a secret for so many years. Between Jo’s hilltop farm and the lakeside village of Gowna, Ellen begins to uncover the mysteries of her Irish husband’s past and the cruelties and isolation of his rural childhood. Ellen also stumbles upon Fintan’s long-ago romance with a local village woman, with whom he had a daughter, Cat. Cat is now fourteen and living with her mother in London. As Ellen reconciles her troubled relationship with Fintan, she discovers a way to heal the wounds of the past.

The Art of the Travel Sketch is a compilation of drawings by architect James Warfield. Inspired by American author Kurt Vonnegut’s observation that “peculiar travel suggestions are dancing lessons from God,” Warfield has devoted a lifetime of world travel and architectural research to record in sketches, words and photographs the most exotic vernacular environments and the cultures and people who create them. The book is intended as both an educational volume and a highly personal visual memoir. Its focus is not on “how” to draw, but rather on “why” one draws. Selected as exemplars of graphic and conceptual principles, Warfield’s sketches are accompanied by a series of essays that range from instructive – on selecting subjects, on perspective, on drawing from real life – to philosophical – on courting the creative moment, on confidence, on poetry, and on guilty pleasures and personal critiques. The book celebrates the delight and excitement of travel as well. The foreword is written by architects Cathi and Steven House, authors of Mediterranean Villages: an architectural journey and true artists in their own right, who share Warfield’s passion for both the sketch and world architecture.
