The New York Times–bestselling memoir of crippling depression and the struggle for recovery by the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Sophie’s Choice. In the summer of 1985, William Styron became numbed by disaffection, apathy, and despair, unable to speak or walk while caught in the grip of advanced depression. His struggle with the disease culminated in a wave of obsession that nearly drove him to suicide, leading him to seek hospitalization before the dark tide engulfed him. Darkness Visible tells the story of Styron’s recovery, laying bare the harrowing realities of clinical depression and chronicling his triumph over the disease that had claimed so many great writers before him. His final words are a call for hope to all who suffer from mental illness that it is possible to emerge from even the deepest abyss of despair and “once again behold the stars.” This ebook features a new illustrated biography of William Styron, including original letters, rare photos, and never-before-seen documents from the Styron family and the Duke University Archives.

Afghanistan is a collection of stunning, lyrical photographs from an acclaimed, prize-winning photojournalist. From 1994 to 2006, Seamus Murphy photographed the effects of the Taliban regime, the tumultuous years of civil war, and the historical elections following the fall of the Taliban. Alongside scenes of war and politics, his magnificent photographs capture intimate images of domesticity, work, and leisure. Seamus Murphy has won six World Press Photo awards and has received widespread acclaim for his work in Afghanistan and the Middle East.
Winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize Darkness Visible opens at the height of the London Blitz, when a naked child steps out of an all-consuming fire. Miraculously saved but hideously scarred, soon tormented at school and at work, Matty becomes a wanderer, a seeker after some unknown redemption. Two more lost children await him, twins as exquisite as they are loveless. Toni dabbles in political violence; Sophy, in sexual tyranny. As Golding weaves their destinies together, his book reveals both the inner and outer darkness of our time.
Spiritual seekers from many traditions have used darkness as a method for exploring hidden aspects of unconscious and super-conscious states, and for embracing the deeper recesses of the self. Heaven and Buxton show how experiencing complete darkness, even for only a period of hours, brings about a remarkable clarity and mental stillness, and thus provides a springboard for creativity, intuition, and spiritual development.
The average GI in World War II carried a rifle, had military support, was committed to whatever action his unit was engaged in, and often had time to rest and regroup before advancing. Conversely, the combat photographer had his camera, a sidearm, and a jeep, was sent wherever there was fighting to document what was happening. He often saw the worst of the war. Charles Eugene Sumners was a still photographer in the 166th Signal Photo Company, and in Darkness Visible he offers his World War II memories--some sad, some happy, many horrendous, all life-changing. With the aid of many of his photographs reproduced in this book, he remembers boot camp, the trip overseas, and events in France, Germany, Belgium, and Luxembourg, including the Battle of the Bulge, while covering Patton's Third Army's field artillery, infantrymen, engineers, the 10th Armored and the 6th Armored. Other subjects include Hitler youth, refugees, labor camps, POWs, other combat photographers including his friend Russ Meyer, and going back to Europe after the war.
W. R. Johnson confronts the inherent (and much commented upon) melancholy of Vergil's poem, and gives us an interpretation as brilliant and as it is original. He questions accepted readings that emphasize Vergil's faith in empire. Instead, he points to Vergil's multiple allegories, his lyrical and enigmatic style, and the ways in which Vergil teaches us about darkness. Using close readings and comparisons to Homer, Johnson reveals how wise and moving theAeneid can be. No poet,” he writes, not Dante himself, has imagined the disintegration of justice and truth with such precision and power, and for this reason no poet, not Homer himself, has shown how precious and how fragile are the formation and equilibrium of man's integrity of spirit.”

What do Philip Pullman and J.K. Rowling have in common that has made both of their stories so successful? What does Pullman listen to while he writes – and who, or what, is Dust? Pullman’s award-winning trilogy His Dark Materials has been appreciated by readers of all ages. It is now set to welcome new fans as it is adapted for television by the BBC in 2018, and the first part of his new trilogy, The Book of Dust, at last sees publication. Nicholas Tucker, a leading authority on children’s literature, writes about the man he knows as a friend. Unpacking and examining Pullman’s life and the sources he drew on for his masterpiece, he explores the world of science, theology, imagination and adventure that Pullman has created. Including a personal interview with Pullman himself, Darkness Visible offers a unique exploration of the author’s work – and its controversies. “Enigmas from His Dark Materials are unraveled... Unmissable for all Pullman readers" Sussex Express
Ramses feels compelled to take the "square scroll" Agenor found in a cave outside Nubia to Tanis, a scholar in Thebes. Inside that city, Prince Avaris is crowned king. His father, Serapis, was found murdered the night before. Kamose, his younger brother, runs off with Avaris's concubine, to Kadesh. Avaris declares war. In no time, the Nubians prove their superiority. They plan to catapult the walls of Kadesh and invade the city. Now desperate, King Ajax sends Kamose to his brother with an offer to buy the concubine. Avaris answers by dragging Kamose around the city walls tied behind his horse. King Ajax has only one option left. He asks King Shipharah to intervene. Weeks later, Avaris is murdered in his sleep. This ends the war. But Tanis, the man who assassinated Avaris, is found out and he's stabbed outside the walls of Thebes. As a result, Ramses and Agenor are left to finish his research. In the end, Agenor reveals the long-hidden secrets on the "square scroll." This action shakes the very foundations of Hyksos society in every city on that planet.
