Explanation of the Book:

It's an opportunity she can't refuse. The woman before her tried... Freya Miller needs a miracle. In the fallout of her husband's betrayal, she's about to lose her family home, and with it the security she craves for her five-year-old daughter, Skye. Adrift and alone, she's on the verge of despair until a chance meeting with the charismatic Dr Marsden changes everything. He's seeking a new tenant for a shockingly affordable flat in a fashionable area of London. Adder House sounds too good to be true... But Freya really can't afford to be cynical, and Dr Marsden is adamant she and Skye will be a perfect fit with the other residents. But Adder House has secrets. Even behind a locked front door, Freya feels as if she's being watched: objects moving, unfamiliar smells, the blinking light of a concealed camera... and it's not long before she begins to suspect that her dream home is hiding a nightmarish reality. Was it really chance that led her here--or something unthinkably dark? As the truth about Adder House starts to unravel, can Freya and Skye get out--or will they be locked in forever?

Explanation of the Book:

A New York Times Editors Choice Longlisted for the 2020 Simpson / Joyce Carol Oates Literary Prize One of Vogue.com's “Best Books of 2020 So Far” One of Elle's “Best Books of 2020 So Far” Named A Most-Anticipated Book by The New York Times, Vogue, The Boston Globe, Salon, The Millions, Inside Hook, and Vol. 1 Brooklyn In 1996, the unnamed narrator of Teddy Wayne's Apartment is attending the MFA writing program at Columbia on his father's dime and living in an illegal sublet of a rent-stabilized apartment. Feeling guilty about his good fortune, he offers his spare bedroom--rent-free--to Billy, a talented, charismatic classmate from the Midwest eking out a hand-to-mouth existence in Manhattan. The narrator's rapport with Billy develops into the friendship he's never had due to a lifetime of holding people at arm's length, hovering at the periphery, feeling “fundamentally defective.” But their living arrangement, not to mention their radically different upbringings, breeds tensions neither man could predict. Interrogating the origins of our contemporary political divide and its ties to masculinity and class, Apartment is a gutting portrait of one of New York's many lost, disconnected souls by a writer with an uncommon aptitude for embodying them.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • This vibrant, tender, and moving tale pulses with the excitement of New York City, as Danielle Steel explores twists of fate, and the way that sometimes, in special places, friends can be the family we need most. They come together by chance in the heart of New York City, four young women at turning points in their lives. Claire Kelly finds the walk-up apartment—a spacious loft in Hell’s Kitchen. But the aspiring shoe designer needs at least one roommate to manage it. She meets Abby Williams, a writer trying to make it on her own, far away from her successful family in L.A. Four years later, Morgan Shelby joins them. She’s ambitious, with a serious finance job on Wall Street. Then Sasha Hartman, a medical student whose identical twin sister is a headline-grabbing supermodel. And so the sprawling space, with its exposed brick and rich natural light, becomes a home to friends about to embark on new, exhilarating adventures. Frustrated by her ultra-conservative boss, Claire soon faces a career crisis as a designer. Abby is under the spell of an older man, an off-off-Broadway producer who exploits her and detours her from her true talent as a novelist, while destroying her self-confidence. Morgan is happily in love with a successful restaurateur who supplies her roommates with fine food. At her office, she begins to suspect something is off about her boss, a legendary investment manager whom she’s always admired. But does she even know him? And Sasha begins an all-work-no-play residency as an OB/GYN, as her glamorous jet-set sister makes increasingly risky decisions. Their shared life in the apartment grounds them as they bring one another comfort and become a family of beloved friends. Unexpected opportunities alter the course of each of their lives, and as they meet the challenges, they face the bittersweet reality that in time, they will inevitably move away from the place where their dreams began.

Explanation of the Book:

Billy Wilder won two Oscars - as co-screenwriter and director - for this mordant comedy about getting ahead in the corporate world. Jack Lemmon played the 'schnook' who lends out his apartment for his boss's sexual trysts, only to fall in love with the boss's girl - played by Shirey MacLaine. The Apartment is a beautifully judged piece of writing saved from cynicism by Wilder and Diamond's tenderness towards their central characters. This edition of the screenplay includes a specially commissioned introduction by Mark Cousins.

Explanation of the Book:

A powerful and elegant debut novel about love, memory, exile, and war. One snowy December morning in an old European city, an American man leaves his shabby hotel to meet a local woman who has agreed to help him search for an apartment to rent. THE APARTMENT follows the couple across a blurry, illogical, and frozen city into a past the man is hoping to forget, and leaves them at the doorstep of an uncertain future-their cityscape punctuated by the man's lingering memories of time spent in Iraq and the life he abandoned in the United States. Contained within the details of this day is a complex meditation on America's relationship with the rest of the world, an unflinching glimpse at the permanence of guilt and despair, and an exploration into our desire to cure violence with violence. A novel about how our relationships to others-and most importantly to ourselves-alters how we see the world, THE APARTMENT perfectly captures the peculiarity and excitement of being a stranger in a strange city. Written in an affecting and intimate tone that gradually expands in scope, intensity, poetry, and drama, Greg Baxter's clear-eyed first novel tells the intriguing story of these two people on this single day. Both beguiling and raw in its observations and language, THE APARTMENT is a crisp novel with enormous range that offers profound and unexpected wisdom.

Explanation of the Book:

A year in the life of the apartment of an aspiring young writer, forever penniless and waiting for someone to recognize his talent. And, as even sublime minds need to eat, our man decides to sublet one of the rooms in his home. And so he will make the acquaintance of a series of characters, all different from each other, but with a common denominator: creativity. We meet Massia, who plays guitar with a highly promising band; Pasolo, sculptor and slightly crazy artist; Karin, a Swedish girl seeking for the meaning of life; Jovanna and Corintia, two fashion designers and partners in real life; and, finally, Kurt, a rebellious boy fighting against the world and its rules. The James Taylor Quartet album Wait a Minute plays as soundtrack to this story, at times dark, at times funny but also dramatic. A story that takes us back to an era when everything seemed possible.

Explanation of the Book:

From the bachelor pad that Jack Lemmon's C. C. Baxter loans out to his superiors in Billy Wilder's The Apartment (1960) to the crumbling tenement in a dystopian Taipei in Tsai Ming-liang's The Hole (1998), the apartment in films and television series is often more than just a setting: it can motivate or shape the narrative in key ways. Such works belong to a critical genre identified by Pamela Robertson Wojcik as the apartment plot, which comprises specific thematic, visual, and narrative conventions that explore modern urbanism's various forms and possibilities. In The Apartment Complex a diverse group of international scholars discuss the apartment plot in a global context, examining films made both within and beyond the Hollywood studios. The contributors consider the apartment plot's intersections with film noir, horror, comedy, and the musical, addressing how different national or historical contexts modify the apartment plot and how the genre's framework allows us to rethink the work of auteurs and identify productive connections and tensions between otherwise disparate texts.

Explanation of the Book:

A legendary Parisian collection of minimalist and conceptual art, and its evocative installation in the home of collector Ghislain Mollet-Viéville This book documents the scrupulous recreation, inside MAMCO Geneva, of a flat owned between 1975 and 1992 by Parisian collector and self-described agent d'art Ghislain Mollet-Viéville. Mollet-Viéville's apartment on the rue Beauborg showcased his incredible collection of minimalist and conceptual art; the flat served flexibly as home, gallery and crossroads of international contemporary art. Featuring works by Victor Burgin, Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, Carl Andre, Claude Rutault, Art & Language, John McCracken and Lawrence Weiner, Mollet-Viéville's collection, and its display in his apartment, defined a radical approach to collecting and played an important role in publicizing the work of these artists in France. MAMCO acquired Mollet-Viéville's groundbreaking collection in 2017; The Apartment is the first publication to celebrate and study Mollet-Viéville's collection and its faithful reinstallation at MAMCO Geneva as a "period room" of contemporary art history. The Apartment features an analysis of each work included in the installation, an interview with Mollet-Viéville conducted by Lionel Bovier and Thierry Davila, and an essay by Patricia Falguières.

Explanation of the Book:

The New York Times Best Seller! Now with an excerpt of Michelle's new book, I'll See You in Paris! Bienvenue à Paris! When April Vogt's boss tells her about an apartment in the ninth arrondissement that has been discovered after being shuttered for the past seventy years, the Sotheby's continental furniture specialist does not hear the words "dust" or "rats" or "decrepit." She hears Paris. She hears escape. Once in France, April quickly learns the apartment is not merely some rich hoarder's repository. Beneath the cobwebs and stale perfumed air is a goldmine, and not because of the actual gold (or painted ostrich eggs or mounted rhinoceros horns or bronze bathtub). First, there's a portrait by one of the masters of the Belle Epoque, Giovanni Boldini. And then there are letters and journals written by the very woman in the painting, Marthe de Florian. These documents reveal that she was more than a renowned courtesan with enviable decolletage. Suddenly April's quest is no longer about the bureaux plats and Louis-style armchairs that will fetch millions at auction. It's about discovering the story behind this charismatic woman. It's about discovering two women, actually. With the help of a salty (and annoyingly sexy) Parisian solicitor and the courtesan's private diaries, April tries to uncover the many secrets buried in the apartment. As she digs into Marthe's life, April can't help but take a deeper look into her own. Having left behind in the States a cheating husband, a family crisis about to erupt, and a career she's been using as the crutch to simply get by, she feels compelled to sort out her own life too. When the things she left bubbling back home begin to boil over, and Parisian delicacies beyond flaky pâtisseries tempt her better judgment, April knows that both she and Marthe deserve happy finales. Whether accompanied by croissants or champagne, this delectable debut novel depicts the Paris of the Belle Epoque and the present day with vibrant and stunning allure. Based on historical events, Michelle Gable's A Paris Apartment will entertain and inspire, as readers embrace the struggles and successes of two very unforgettable women.

Alone in his apartment, one man copes with the onerous side-effects of his treatment for his chronic bipolar disorder, suffering suicidal ideation, akathisia, nausea, dizziness, and shifts from depression to self-targetted rage. When he thinks he has finally gotten a grasp on his condition, the world succumbs to devastation as an ancient god-like creature rises from the ocean to start the countdown on our world as we know it. As this man learns to cope with his condition throughout the apocalypse, everything changes when his treatment is no longer accessible due to a limited prescription. Anticipating the dreadful withdrawal and the devastating resurgence of his chronically-relapsing depression, this lone man must continue to suffer the apocalypse both in and outside his own mind, and attempt to find meaning for existence in times when no outside force will offer it.

Explanation of the Book:

In his mid sixties, Jay Lerner was still at the top of his game, a partner at a prestigious New York law firm, married for over forty years to his college sweetheart, father of three successful children and adoring and adored grandfather of seven grandchildren all living within an hour of Jay's Westport Connecticut home. His life was productive, fulfilling until one day in the late winter of 2006, a piece of mail arrived at his home. In the mail was a letter, actually a notice, addressed to Jay's father, dead over ten years, that taxes on a condominium apartment in Forest Hills, Queens, were unpaid and overdue and that unless paid within thirty days the tax lien would be foreclosed. Jay's investigation into the mysterious tax claim led him to an apartment that his family had rented for a few years in the 1950s, but never, to Jay's knowledge, had been owned by his father. Not only did Jay learn that his father had secretly bought the apartment, but also that he used it to provide a home for his long time mistress and for trysts over a thirty year period starting while Jay and his sister still lived with the family in their new home in another part of Queens, an affair that continued to the end of his father's life. The love affair was further revealed in considerable detail by letters that his father had written which were given to Jay by a sister of his father's paramour. The story culminates with a further discovery, one that would change Jay's life and his family's permanently. In the course of telling the story Jay reveals details of his life as a lawyer including many vignettes that are filled with humor and warmth.
