47. Eugene O'Neill's America Desire Under Democracy (Large Print 16pt) - John Patrick Diggins

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £30.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In the face of seemingly relentless American optimism, Eugene O'Neill's plays reveal an America many would like to ignore, a place of seething resentments, aching desires, and family tragedy, where failure and disappointment are the norm and the American dream a chimera. Though derided by critics during his lifetime, his works resonated with audiences, won him the Nobel Prize and four Pulitzer, and continue to grip theatergoers today. Now noted historian John Patrick Diggins offers a masterly biography that both traces O'Neill's tumultuous life and explains the forceful ideas that form the heart of his unflinching works. Diggins paints a richly detailed portrait of the playwright's life, from his Irish roots and his early years at sea to his relationships with his troubled mother and brother. Here we see O'Neill as a young Greenwich Village radical, a ravenous autodidact who attempted to understand the disjunction between the sunny public face of American life and the rage that he knew was simmering beneath. According to Diggins, O'Neill mined this disjunction like no other American writer. His characters burn with longing for an idealized future composed of equal parts material success and individual freedom, but repeatedly they fall back to earth, pulled by the tendrils of family and the insatiability of desire. Drawing on thinkers from Emerson to Nietzsche, O'Neill viewed this endlessly frustrated desire as the problematic core of American democracy, simultaneously driving and undermining American ideals of progress, success, and individual freedom. Melding a penetrating assessment of O'Neill's works and thought with a sensitive re-creation of his life, Eugene O'Neill's America offers a striking new view of America's greatest playwright - and a new picture of American democracy itself.

50. Faith, Film and Philosophy Big Ideas on the Big Screen (Large Print 16pt) - R. Douglas Geivett and James S. Spiegel

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £27.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

'THOSE WHO TELL STORIES RULE SOCIETY.'' PLATO.... So who today are our principal storytellers? Not philosophers, but filmmakers. For those who know both the enormous entertainment potential and the culture-shaping power of film, this book will stir mind and imagination. For great stories freight world-sized ideas, ideas worthy of contemplation and conversation. Great cinema inspires wonder. But another philosopher, Aristotle, reminds us that wonder is the true source of philosophy. So perhaps Plato or Aristotle might have a shot at ruling society, even today - if they took an interest in film. These fourteen essays offer wonderful reflection on classic and contemporary films following several major philosophical themes, all within the context of Christian faith: the human condition, the human mind and the nature of knowing, the moral life, and faith and religion. Citizen Kane, Big Fish, Pretty Woman, Legends of the Fall and The Bridges of Madison County contribute to an in-depth consideration of the human condition. The Truman Show, The Matrix, Being John Malkovich and It's a Wonderful Life, among others, illuminate reflection on the human mind and the nature of knowing. Looking at the moral life, contributors interact with such notable films as Pleasantville, Bowling for Columbine, Mystic River and The Silence of the Lambs. The final section pursues the theme of faith and religion traced through a number of Hong Kong martial arts films, Contact, 2001: A Space Odyssey and U2's music documentary, Rattle and Hum. A veritable film festival for all those who want to nurture the wonder of philosophical inquiry and the love of Christian theology through an engagement with big ideas on the big screen.

- Steve ''The Shout'' Dandy, ''Nik at Nite'' contributor
Since its premiere in 2004, Lost has gone from weird (polar bears in the jungle) to weirder (a man living in a bunker hitting a button every 108 minutes to ''save the world'') to just plain crazy (a large frozen wheel moving the island). And the fans love every minute of it. In the brilliant season 4, the outside world invaded the island and the Oceanic 6 were ''rescued.'' And now . . . they're coming back. The pre - eminent source for fans, Nikki Stafford's Finding Lost series - the only Lost books with a complete episode - by - episode guide - continues its exploration of the deeper meanings of the show. The book includes:
an in - depth look at every episode of season 5, linking the events in the season to the early Lost years and adding highlights, little - known facts, and nitpicks
chapters on the rules of time travel, the smoke monster, and that mysterious four - toed statue
sidebars chronicling fun trivia such as Geronimo Jackson, Star Wars references, and Locke's injuries
analysis of literary references such as The Little Prince, Ulysses, Y: The Last Man, A Separate Reality, and Everything That Rises Must Converge
photos of the filming locations in Hawaii
