After her mother died of cancer at the age of 55, Meghan O'Rourke found that nothing had prepared her for the experience. In the first anguished days, she created a record of her life as a mourner, trying to capture the paradox of grief-its monumental agony and microscopic intimacies-an endeavor that ultimately bloomed into a profound look at how caring for her mother during her illness changed and strengthened their bond.
O'Rourke's story is one of resilience, as she observes her family persevere even in the face of immeasurable loss. And its also one of how a daughter's love for her mother endures, even after she is gone.

Sixteen literary luminaries on the controversial subject of being childless by choice, in this critically acclaimed, bestselling anthology
One of the most provocative and talked-about books of the year, "Selfish, Shallow, and Self-Absorbed" is the stunning collection exploring one of society s most vexing taboos.
One of the main topics of cultural conversation during the last decade was the supposed fertility crisis, and whether modern women could figure out a way to have it all a successful career and the required 2.3 children before their biological clocks stopped ticking. Now, however, the conversation has turned to whether it s necessary to have it all (see Anne-Marie Slaughter) or, perhaps more controversial, whether children are really a requirement for a fulfilling life.
In this exciting and controversial collection of essays, curated by writer Meghan Daum, thirteen acclaimed female writers explain why they have chosen to eschew motherhood. Contributors include Lionel Shriver, Sigrid Nunez, Kate Christensen, Elliott Holt, Geoff Dyer, and Tim Kreider, among others, who will give a unique perspective on the overwhelming cultural pressure of parenthood.
This collection makes a smart and passionate case for why parenthood is not the only path to a happy, productive life, and takes our parent-centric, kid-fixated, baby-bump-patrolling culture to task in the process. In this book, that shadowy faction known as the childless-by-choice comes out into the light."

Описание: Recognized almost instantly upon its publication in 1776 as the fundamental work of economics, "The Wealth of Nations" was also recognized as really long: the original edition totaled over 900 pages in two volumes--including the blockbuster 67-page ""digression concerning the variations in the value of silver during the course of the last four centuries,"" which, according to P. J. O'Rourke, ""to those uninterested in the historiography of currency supply, is like reading "Modern Maturity" in Urdu."" Although daunting, Smith's tome is still essential to understanding such current hot topics as outsourcing, trade imbalances, and Angelina Jolie. In this hilarious, approachable, and insightful examination of Smith and his groundbreaking work, O'Rourke puts his trademark wit to good use and shows us why Smith is still relevant, why what seems obvious now was once revolutionary, and why the pursuit of self-interest is so important.
