Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck is a self-described passionary whose approach to life has taken him from inner-city poverty to the highest levels of his profession. In G Street Lion, he shares his life storyhow a typical, fatherless black kid from urban America gains admission into the nations best public university, almost by chance. In this memoir, he narrates how he struggles during his first semester, certain to flunk out, until he realizes that everything he needs to survive and thrive he learned growing up on G Street. Along the way, he discovers the secret for success, which takes him from the run-down dirt lots of the Pop Warner leagues in southeast San Diego to manicured lawns of some of the most storied football coliseums in the country. He goes from earning Ds and Fs in middle school to becoming a deans scholar in medical school. Told with honesty, humor, and occasional regret, G Street Lion recounts how Hasbroucks simple epiphany helped him to confront his worst fears, pursue his biggest dreams, and realize a future far brighter than he could have imagined.

The profoundly original and wildly entertaining short stories of a legendary Twilight Zone writer, with a foreword by Ray Bradbury and an afterword by William Shatner It is only natural that Charles Beaumont would make a name for himself crafting scripts for The Twilight Zone—for his was an imagination so limitless it must have emerged from some other dimension. Perchance to Dream contains a selection of Beaumont’s finest stories, including seven that he later adapted for Twilight Zone episodes. Beaumont dreamed up fantasies so vast and varied they burst through the walls of whatever box might contain them. Supernatural, horror, noir, science fiction, fantasy, pulp, and more: all were equally at home in his wondrous mind. These are stories where lions stalk the plains, classic cars rove the streets, and spacecraft hover just overhead. Here roam musicians, magicians, vampires, monsters, toreros, extraterrestrials, androids, and perhaps even the Devil himself. With dizzying feats of master storytelling and joyously eccentric humor, Beaumont transformed his nightmares and reveries into impeccably crafted stories that leave themselves indelibly stamped upon the walls of the mind. In Beaumont’s hands, nothing is impossible: it all seems plausible, even likely. "[Beaumont’s] imagination, as Perchance to Dream amply shows, was more than most writers enjoy in the longest of lifetimes." -NPR For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world.

George Orwell’s 1984 takes on new life with extraordinary relevance and renewed popularity. “Orwell saw, to his credit, that the act of falsifying reality is only secondarily a way of changing perceptions. It is, above all, a way of asserting power.”—The New Yorker In 1984, London is a grim city in the totalitarian state of Oceania where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be. Lionel Trilling said of Orwell’s masterpiece, “1984 is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present.” Though the year 1984 now exists in the past, Orwell’s novel remains an urgent call for the individual willing to speak truth to power.

On Safari, B.E.A., 16th October 1909. To Sir Alfred E. Pease. Dear Sir Alfred,—I am very much pleased that you are to write a book about lion-hunting. Very, very few people have an experience which better justifies such a book. It is the king of all sports when carried on as you have carried it on, especially when you gallop the lion, and then kill him on foot as he charges or prepares to charge as a lion thus rounded up will generally do. I am peculiarly pleased to have you write the book, for it was under your guidance that I first tried lion-hunting. Sincerely yours, Theodore Roosevelt. This hunting classic contains the following chapters: Foreword by Theodore Roosevelt I. Lions and Lion Land II. About Courage III. Of the Courage of Lions IV. Of Dangerous Game V. Of Sport VI. The Lion VII. The Distribution of Lions VIII. Lion Cubs and Tame Lions IX. The Haunts of Lions X. The Lion’s Voice and the Lion’s Eye XI. Some Ways of Lions XII. In the Lion’s Jaw XIII. The Food and Drink of Lions XIV. Lion-Hunting XV. Hunting with Dogs and Hunting with Horses XVI. Night-Shooting XVII. Hints for the Beginner

George Orwell's moving reflections on the English character and his passionate belief in the need for political change. The Lion and the Unicorn was written in London during the worst period of the blitz. It is vintage Orwell, a dynamic outline of his belief in socialism, patriotism and an English revolution. His fullest political statement, it has been described as 'one of the most moving and incisive portraits of the English character' and is as relevant now as it ever has been.
