Book Summary :

Finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and an international bestseller, Patrick deWitt’s brilliant and darkly comic novel is now a major motion picture starring Michelle Pfeiffer. Frances Price — tart widow, possessive mother, and Upper East Side force of nature — is in dire straits, beset by scandal and impending bankruptcy. Her adult son Malcolm is no help, mired in a permanent state of arrested development. And then there’s the Price’s aging cat, Small Frank, who Frances believes houses the spirit of her late husband, an infamously immoral litigator and world-class cad whose gruesome tabloid death rendered Frances and Malcolm social outcasts. Putting penury and pariahdom behind them, the family decides to cut their losses and head for the exit. One ocean voyage later, the curious trio land in their beloved Paris, the City of Light serving as a backdrop not for love or romance, but self-destruction and economic ruin — to riotous effect. Brimming with pathos and wit, French Exit is a one-of-a-kind “tragedy of manners,” a riotous send-up of high society, as well as a moving mother and son caper which only Patrick deWitt could conceive and execute. A finalist for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and an international bestseller upon its original publication, French Exit is now a major motion picture starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Lucas Hedges and with a script by Patrick deWitt.

Book Summary :

In order to develop a suitable framework for the analysis of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) case law, it is first analysed what significance, if any, the concept of 'sovereignty' has in the contemporary supranational environment of the European Union. All too often, tax scholars equate 'sovereignty' with the concepts of 'competence' or 'jurisdiction'. It will be established in this thesis that a much more specific and higher-level meaning is to be attributed to the 'sovereignty' concept, which goes beyond the strictly legal concepts of 'competence' or 'jurisdiction'. The cornerstone of this thesis, however, is an extensive analysis of the case law of the ECJ in direct tax matters, including a comparison with its non-tax case law. A new kind of methodology is used in discussing the cases: they are categorized according to whether a discrimination - or a restriction - based analysis was applied by the ECJ.

Book Summary :

Simon says, raise your hand if you're a single lady. Single or not, most women could use a little more solitude than the world typically offers. Like many, Rebekah Iliff has spent ample time pondering her need for it, how much to ask for, and wondering why the world paints it in such a negative light. After the sudden loss of a close friend, she decided to go forward with their birthday spa day alone, and found herself drinking a glass of champagne solo in a spa, much to fellow patrons' concern. This experience later sparked the poem "Champagne for One," a joyful reflection on intentional solitude, and bubbled into this namesake collection of poetry and essays. With sharp wit and sly satire, Iliff paints a picture of complete personal content, where you will finally see yourself embracing the value of solitary life and laughing along the way. Discover an array of conversation enders and a recipe for stag stew—the secret ingredient? 4 ounces of confidence—that will leave you equipped to take on even the most clingy companions and matchmaking expectations. Champagne for One is a delightful spotlight on how to own being alone, perfect as a gift to a friend or as a treat to your solitary self.

Book Summary :

Called “remarkable” (The Wall Street Journal) and “an ambitious, colossal debut novel” (Publishers Weekly), Helen DeWitt’s The Last Samurai is back in print at last Helen DeWitt’s 2000 debut, The Last Samurai, was “destined to become a cult classic” (Miramax). The enterprising publisher sold the rights in twenty countries, so “Why not just, ‘destined to become a classic?’” (Garth Risk Hallberg) And why must cultists tell the uninitiated it has nothing to do with Tom Cruise? Sibylla, an American-at-Oxford turned loose on London, finds herself trapped as a single mother after a misguided one-night stand. High-minded principles of child-rearing work disastrously well. J. S. Mill (taught Greek at three) and Yo Yo Ma (Bach at two) claimed the methods would work with any child; when these succeed with the boy Ludo, he causes havoc at school and is home again in a month. (Is he a prodigy, a genius? Readers looking over Ludo’s shoulder find themselves easily reading Greek and more.) Lacking male role models for a fatherless boy, Sibylla turns to endless replays of Kurosawa’s masterpiece Seven Samurai. But Ludo is obsessed with the one thing he wants and doesn’t know: his father’s name. At eleven, inspired by his own take on the classic film, he sets out on a secret quest for the father he never knew. He’ll be punched, sliced, and threatened with retribution. He may not live to see twelve. Or he may find a real samurai and save a mother who thinks boredom a fate worse than death.
