    Milan Chic Coffee Table Book by Assouline

    $ 105.00

    In Northern Italy, a unique skyline emerges, combining the aesthetics of history and tradition with the innovations of modernity. Milan reveals itself through Stefano Boeri’s Vertical Forest and Rem Koolhaas’s Fondazione Prada, along with the imposing Milan Cathedral and the grand iron-and-glass dome of Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II. But the true essence of the metropolis lies hidden behind the façades of the striking buildings. Whether that means the interior-design creations displayed at the plentiful design fairs or Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece the Last Supper, housed in Santa Maria delle Grazie, Milan requires a local guide to comprehend all of its secrets and treasures. Author Massimo Nava and photographer Oberto Gili are happy to oblige.

    The magnificence of Milan is a reflection of its inhabitants: the designers, architects, artists and restaurateurs who lend their own brand of style to the city. In Milan Chic, readers are taken on an intimate tour, making stops at the homes of sought-after designers, the studios of gifted artists and the headquarters of prominent architects. This book illustrates the allure of this elegant industrial and cultural center.

  • Fifty More Places to Play Golf Before You Die By Chris Santella

    Fifty More Places to Play Golf Before You Die By Chris Santella

    $ 27.50

    Fifty More Places to Play Golf Before You Die is the sixth of Chris Santella's popular "Fifty Places" books (more than 250,000 copies in print), and the first to return to golf—the series' most popular subject. In this new book Santella interviews 50 luminaries in the golf world about their favorite courses and experiences. Experts range from seasoned touring professionals (Amy Alcott, Fred Funk) to journalists and photographers (James Dodson, Brian Morgan) to golf course architects (Robert von Hagge, Bob Harrison) to travel specialists (Gordon Dalgleish, Mike Lardner).

    Old Country favorites like Royal Dornoch and Machrihanish in Scotland are featured, but so are venues far off the linksters' beaten path, like Nirwana, Bali, where the course runs beside rice paddies in the shadow of ancient temples, and China's Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, where players tee off at 10,000 feet, at the base of the Himalayas. More than 40 spectacular photos capture the allure of these unforgettable golf destinations.

    What the Ermine Saw by Eden Collingworth

    $ 27.00

    The remarkable true story behind one of history’s most enigmatic portraits—"a glorious picaresque of unbridled passions and unmitigated scoundrels, a glorious romp through the great palaces and palazzos of Europe" (Amanda Foreman, New York Times best-selling author of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire)

    Five hundred and thirty years ago, a young woman sat before a Grecian-nosed artist known as Leonardo da Vinci. Her name was Cecilia Gallerani, and she was the young mistress of Ludovico Sforza, duke of Milan. Sforza was a brutal and clever man who was mindful that Leonardo’s genius would not only capture Cecilia’s beguiling beauty but also reflect the grandeur of his title. But when the portrait was finished, Leonardo’s brush strokes had conveyed something deeper by revealing the essence of Cecilia’s soul. Even today, 
    The Woman with an Ermine manages to astonish.
     
    Despite the work's importance in its own time, no records of it have been found for the two hundred and fifty years that followed Gallerani’s death. Readers of 
    The Hare with the Amber Eyes will marvel at Eden Collinsworth’s dexterous story of illuminates the eventual history of this unique masterpiece, as it journeyed from one owner to the next–from the portrait’s next recorded owner, a Polish noblewoman, who counted Benjamin Franklin as an admirer, to its exile  in Paris during the Polish Soviet War, to its return to WWII-era Poland where—in advance of Germany’s invasion—it remained hidden behind a bricked-up wall by a housekeeper who defied Hitler’s edict that it be confiscated as one of the Reich’s treasures. Fans of Anne-Marie O’Connor’s The Lady in Gold will treasure the story of this criss-crossing journey and the enigmatic woman at its heart.
     
    What the Ermine Saw is a fact-based story that cheats fiction and a reminder that  genius, power, and beauty always have a price.

  • Playing Through the Pain: Ken Caminiti by Dan Good

    Playing Through the Pain: Ken Caminiti by Dan Good

    $ 24.99

    In Playing Through the Pain: Ken Caminiti and the Steroids Confession That Changed Baseball Forever, writer Dan Good seeks to make sense of MLB MVP Ken Caminiti’s fascinating, troubled life. Good began researching Caminiti in 2012 and conducted his first interviews for his biography in 2013. Since then he’s interviewed nearly 400 people, providing him with an exclusive and exhaustive view into Caminiti’s addictions, use of steroids, baseball successes, and inner turmoil. 


    Decades later, the full truth about Major League Baseball’s steroids era remains elusive, and the story of Caminiti, the player who opened the lid on performance-enhancing drugs in baseball has never been properly told. A gritty third baseman known for his diving stops, cannon arm, and switch-hit power, Caminiti voluntarily admitted in a 2002 
    Sports Illustrated cover story that he used steroids during his career, including his 1996 MVP season, and guessed that half of the players were using performance-enhancing drugs. “I’ve made a ton of mistakes,” he said. “I don’t think using steroids is one of them.”    

    Good’s on-the-record sources include Caminiti’s steroids supplier, who has never come forward, discussing in detail his efforts to set up drug programs for Caminiti and dozens of other MLB players during the late 1990s; people who attended rehab with Caminiti and revealed the secret inner trauma that fueled his addictions; hundreds of Caminiti’s baseball teammates and coaches, from Little League to the major leagues, who adored and respected him while struggling to understand how to help him amid a culture that cultivated substance abuse; childhood friends who were drawn to his daring personality, warmth, and athleticism; and the teenager at the center of Caminiti’s October 2004 trip to New York City during which he overdosed and died.

    Winner of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize. "Wonderfully written...populated by vivid characters and rendered in fascinating detail." ―Nancy Kline, New York Times Book Review

    Kidnapped from Africa as a child, Aminata Diallo is enslaved in South Carolina but escapes during the chaos of the Revolutionary War. In Manhattan she becomes a scribe for the British, recording the names of blacks who have served the King and earned their freedom in Nova Scotia. But the hardship and prejudice of the new colony prompt her to follow her heart back to Africa, then on to London, where she bears witness to the injustices of slavery and its toll on her life and a whole people. It is a story that no listener, and no reader, will ever forget.

    Published in Canada as The Book of Negroes and the basis for the award-winning BET miniseries of the same name.
