Must You Go? My Life with Harold Pinter By Antonia Fraser

Must You Go? My Life with Harold Pinter
Fraser is a highly regarded British biographer, and the late Harold Pinter, her husband, was a Nobel-winning British playwright. So, the circle they generally traveled in was made up of not only fellow writers but also, because of their individual and combined celebrity, fellow celebrities. Fraser's latest book is both joyous and sad. The former because she shares diary entries concerning her relationship with Pinter (they lived together from August 1975 until Christmas 2008), and it was obviously a stimulating love-match. And sad because the book ends when it does because of Pinter's death from cancer; his struggle with the disease had been years-long. As expected, given their fame and the fame of their associates, lots of name-dropping goes on here. This is not, of course, the story of two starving artists trying to scratch together a living in some cold-water flat. But privileged as they were, they nevertheless experienced the normal highs and lows together, and the result is a poignant read. Serious readers will generate demand for this title, and they will respond with gratitude to Fraser's intimacy.

Reinforced Concrete Design: A Practical Approach

Reinforced Concrete Design: A Practical Approach by Svetlana Brzev and John Pao
English | 2011-06-23 | ISBN: 0558303420 | scan PDF | 743 pages | 59,4 MB

Reinforced Concrete Design: A Practical Approach
This book covers the design of main reinforced concrete structural members in accordance with the limit states design method, and is based on the new CSA Standard A23.3-04 Design of Concrete Structures. The load provisions are consistent with the National Building Code of Canada 2005.

The material in this book is presented in the logical order in which structural design would be performed in practice. The book takes a non-calculus based, practical approach to the analysis and design of reinforced concrete members, rather than a high-level theoretical approach. The authors use modern analysis and design procedures that are consistent with good design practice, teaching, research, and consulting experience related to structural design and rehabilitation of concrete and masonry structures, including buildings, municipal and industrial facilities.

John Pao, MEng, PEng, Struct.Eng, is the President of Bogdonov Pao Associates Ltd. of Vancouver, BC, and BPA Group of Companies with offices in Seattle and Los Angeles. Mr. Pao has extensive consulting experience related to design of reinforced concrete buildings, including high-rise residential and office buildings, shopping centers, parking garages, and institutional buildings.

Lost Woods: The Discovered Writing of Rachel Carson by Rachel Carson [REPOST]

Lost Woods: The Discovered Writing of Rachel Carson by Rachel Carson
Beacon Press | 1999 | ISBN: 0807085472 | 288 pages | EPUB | 3 MB
In her lifetime, Rachel Carson published only four books. She was a careful writer and meticulous researcher, for one thing, and she worked as a government scientist until the success of books like Silent Spring and The Sea Around Us enabled her to turn to her own writing full-time. She also published several magazine pieces, many of which biographer Linda Lear gathers here, along with letters and journal entries. In one piece that is characteristic both of her modesty and of her wit, Carson remarks on her then-unusual status of being an "average-sized woman" and a scientist, one who had just become "a biographer of the sea." In another, Carson writes of the necessity of protecting shorelines from economic development that would hasten their erosion and subsequent destruction. Carson's many fans will take much pleasure in this anthology of her work. –Gregory McNamee —

Hanging Hill (Audiobook)

Hanging Hill (Audiobook) By Mo Hayder, read by Rosalyn Landor
Unabridged edition 2012 | 14 hours and 18 mins | ISBN: 1611205468 | MP3 32 kbps | 210 MB
"[Hayder] has in no way lost her ability to shock, thrill, entertain and occasionally torture us with her use of words. . . . A chiller to the very end. Hayder deals with Britain at its grittiest." –Peter Millar, "The Times" (London) Mo Hayder is a world-class author of gritty, gripping page-turners, winner of the Dagger in the Library from the Crime Writers' Association for outstanding body of work. With her latest novel, she ratchets up the terror to fever pitch. Fast-paced and addictive, "Hanging Hill" centers around a pair of estranged sisters–one a cop, one a coddled wife fallen on hard times–and the gruesome homicide of a teenage beauty, which exposes the nightmares that lurk at the edges of our safe domestic lives. One morning in picture-perfect Bath, England, a teenage girl's body is found on the towpath of a canal.

Lorne Wood–beautiful, popular, and apparently the victim of a disturbingly brutal murder. Why was she on the towpath alone late at night? Zoe Benedict–Harley-riding police detective, independent to a fault–is convinced the department head needs to look beyond the usual domestic motives to solve the case, but no one wants to hear it, especially from the department's black sheep. Meanwhile, Zoe's sister, Sally–recently divorced and in dire financial straits, supporting a daughter who was friends with the dead girl–has begun working as a housekeeper for a rich entrepreneur who seems less eccentric and more repugnant, and possibly dangerous. And why are his sinister associates showing up at her daughter's school? When Zoe's investigation turns up evidence that Lorne's attempts to break into modeling had delivered her into the world of webcam girls and amateur porn, a crippling secret from Zoe's past seems determined to emerge. All roads seem to be leading to one conclusion: there's something very wrong at the house on Hanging Hill. But will Zoe and Sally put their differences aside and fit all the pieces together before it's too late? "Hanging Hill" is a masterful, terrifying book that will have readers sleeping with the lights on.
