A striking new collection of ten short stories and two novellas that explores the idea of property in every meaning of the word, from the acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of the National Book Award finalist So Much for That and the international bestseller We Need to Talk About Kevin. Intermingling settings in America and Britain, Lionel Shriver’s first collection explores property in both senses of the word: real estate and stuff. These pieces illustrate how our possessions act as proxies for ourselves, and how tussles over ownership articulate the power dynamics of our relationships. In Lionel Shriver’s world, we may possess people and objects and places, but in turn they possess us. In the stunning novella "The Standing Chandelier," a woman with a history of attracting other women’s antagonism creates a deeply personal wedding present for her best friend and his fiancée—only to discover that the jealous fiancée wants to cut her out of their lives. In "Domestic Terrorism," a thirty-something son refuses to leave home, resulting in a standoff that renders him a millennial cause célèbre. In "The ChapStick," a middle-aged man subjugated by service to his elderly father discovers that the last place you should finally assert yourself is airport security. In "Vermin," an artistic Brooklyn couple’s purchase of a ramshackle house destroys their once-passionate relationship. In "The Subletter," two women, both foreign conflict junkies, fight over a claim to a territory that doesn’t belong to either. Exhibiting a satisfying thematic unity unusual for a collection, this masterful work showcases the biting insight that has made Shriver one of the most acclaimed writers of our time.

The Humming Bird. My attention was caught by these words taken from the book Things Fall a Part African Proverb Since Men has learned how to shoot without missing (You are being preyed upon) The Humming Bird has learned how to feed without ever perching. (Xaymica infiltrado Americano) (Your life has to be an exact case study) During the 80s I migrated to NYC. In NYC, I attended JHS 204; I graduated and went on to attend LIC High School. I graduated from William Cullen Bryant High School in 1988; however, I identified myself with the kids from LIC and Queens Bridge. I was recruited to attend the Criminal Justice Program at John Jay College. Seven years later, I completed my studies; I had completed all relevant credits in the Masters of Art criminal Justice Program. I had a specialty in criminal law and criminal procedure. I attended the Masters Program while I worked as a Fraud investigator and City Official. Being a Fraud investigator and City official is the only full time possession I have held since I graduated from John Jay. Currently I have completed 16 years on the job.

This is a real-life adventure story set during and after the Cold War, starring an A to Z of British and Russian cultural and political personalities. It explores the complex question of how best to develop cultural dialogue between two widely differing and mutually antagonistic political systems. His account of steering a subtle course between collaboration with a system which is plainly abusive of its own people as well as aggressively hostile to the West, and stalking off in a huff, will appeal to anyone interested in contemporary politics and the arts. Illustrated with many previously unpublished photographs, this memoir throws a unique spotlight on unknown corners of the intellectual battle between democracy and an ideology which once controlled a third of the globe.
