Penguin Books is proud to now be the sole publisher of Oil , the classic 1927 novel by Upton Sinclair. After writing The Jungle, his scathing indictment of the meatpacking industry, Sinclair turned his sights on the early days of the California oil industry in a highly entertaining story featuring a cavalcade of characters including senators, oil magnets, Hollywood film starlets, and a crusading evangelist.
This lively and panoramic book, which was recently cited by David Denby in the New Yorker as being Sinclair's "most readable" novel, is now the inspiration for the Paramount Vantage major motion picture, There Will Be Blood. It is the long-awaited film from Paul Thomas Anderson, one of the most admired filmmakers working today whose previous movies, Boogie Nights and Magnolia were both multiple Academy Award nominees. The movie stars Oscar-winner Daniel Day-Lewis (Gangs of New York, My Left Foot) and Paul Dano (Little Miss Sunshine).
Paramount Vantage will be releasing the film in New York and Los Angeles on December 26, 2007 and go nationwide in January. This is the same company responsible for Babel and A Mighty Heart and the current releases, Into the Wild, Margot at the Wedding, and The Kite Runner.
As wars rage on in the oil region and as anxiety over natural resources rise, the subject of this book, which celebrates its 80th anniversary in 2007, is more timely than ever.

Описание: Upton Sinclair's classic revelatory novel about turn-of-the-century business and immigrant labor practices.
Jurgis Rudkus, a young Lithuanian immigrant in search of a better life, faces instead an epic struggle for survival. His story of factory life in Chicago in the early twentieth century is a saga of barbarous working conditions, crushing poverty, crime, disease, and despair.
Upton Sinclair's vivid depiction of the horrors of Chicago's stockyards and slaughterhouses aroused such public indignation that a government investigation was called, eventually resulting in the passage of pure food laws. More than a hundred years later, The Jungle continues to pack the same emotional power it did when it was first published.
Includes an Introduction by Alicia Mischa Renfroe and an Afterword by Dr.

Описание: Bringing the mythological world into a modern setting and introducing young adult readers to a variety of strange monsters, this fantasy novel follows 12-year-old Joe Copper, as he travels along in his quest to save humankind. When Joe is hired by the eccentric Mrs. Merrynether as an errand boy at her remarkable veterinary practice--a hidden refuge for a menagerie of creatures that should only exist in dreams and legend--he soon learns that she has a startling plan for his future: he is destined to command an army of beasts to protect humanity from the Conclave--a brutal council of dragons hiding on a distant island. But Joe is plunged into his new role prematurely when the callous tycoon Argoyle Redwar, who has a secret menagerie of his own, tricks Mrs. Merrynether into revealing the location of the island. Overcoming his fears, the school bully, and an escaped creature on the loose in his own village, Joe races to the island to stop Redwar from provoking the dragons to war. He takes the most bizarre team imaginable: Lilly, the surly alcoholic cluricaun; Danariel, the seraph who lives in a lightbulb; Flarp, the giant flying eyeball who can't control his excitement; Kiyoshi, the narcoleptic kappa with an extraordinary vocabulary; Snappel, the fiery wyvern plagued by hiccups; and Cornelius, the poisoned manticore. Together with newfound allies on the island, the champions are forced into an epic battle against fantastic odds, facing not only the Conclave but Redwar as he seeks total control.

Описание: Every day, we make literally hundreds of choices about what to eat and drink and how to live, which impact our health and, ultimately, our weight. When these habits are good, it's easy to keep weight in check. When they're bad, the number on our scales can creep upwards and upwards. If you're like most people, your habits could be in need of a tune-up. The 101 "slim habits" presented in THE REAL SKINNY by registered dieticians and founders of the popular website "Appetite for Health" are based on information they have culled from leading dieticians around the country--i.e. this is a "best of" list, and these habits REALLY WORK The authors tackle such topics as: - Friends and family can negatively impact your eating habits. This book shows you how to keep a meat-and-potato-loving man happy at the dinner table while slashing your calorie intake at the same time. - Do low-calorie or zero-calorie sodas and foods leave you feeling hungry for more? You'll learn ways to use some calorie-controlled foods to their advantage, while developing a life-long eating strategy that relies on great-tasting, wholesome foods, rather than manmade substitutes. - The way in which your kitchen is organized and the size of your dishes can impact your weight. Here, you'll find steps to downsize serving dishes and reorganize your refrigerator and pantry to promote healthier choices at home. - It can be difficult to maintain healthy eating habits when you have a busy, on-the-go lifestyle. The authors' "menu decoder" will help you pick the best plates at the most common chain and ethnic restaurants.
