Eveningland : stories [sound recording (CD)] / Michael Knight.

  • 14 November 2018
cover imageLong considered a master of the form and an essential voice in American fiction, Michael Knight's stories have been lauded by writers such Ann Patchett, Elizabeth Gilbert, Barry Hannah, and Richard Bausch. Now, with Eveningland he returns to the form that launched his career, delivering an arresting collection of interlinked stories set among the "right kind of Mobile family" in the years preceding a devastating hurricane. Grappling with dramas both epic and personal, from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill to the "unspeakable misgivings of contentment," Eveningland captures with crystalline poeticism and perfect authenticity of place the ways in which ordinary life astounds us with its complexity. A teenaged girl with a taste for violence holds a burglar hostage in her house on New Year's Eve; a middle aged couple examines the intricacies of their marriage as they prepare to throw a party; and a real estate mogul in the throes of grief buys up all the property on an island only to be accused of madness by his daughters. These stories, told with economy and precision, infused with humor and pathos, excavate brilliantly the latent desires and motivations that drive life forward.

The perfectionists : how precision engineers created the modern world [sound recording (CD)] / Simon Winchester.

  • 12 November 2018
cover imageSimon Winchester traces the development of technology from the Industrial Age to the Digital Age to explore the single component crucial to advancement: precision. At the dawn of the Industrial Revolution in the eighteenth-century, standards of measurement were established, giving way to the development of machine tools--machines that make machines. Eventually, the application of precision tools and methods resulted in the creation of mass production. From its origins in the Industrial Age to today's cutting-edge developments occurring around the world, from America to Western Europe to Asia. As the author introduces the minds and methods that have changed the modern world, he explores fundamental questions. Why is precision important? What are the different tools we use to measure it? Who has invented and perfected it? Has the pursuit of the ultra-precise in so many facets of human life blinded us to other things of equal value, such as an appreciation for the age-old traditions of craftsmanship, art, and high culture? And can the precise and the natural co-exist in society?
