Title The range bucket list : the golf adventure of a lifetime

Title The range bucket list :
Author Dodson, James.
Edition: First Simon & Schuster hardcover edition.
Publication Date(s) 2017
Format: Books
Summary "From beloved golf writer James Dodson, author of Final Rounds and American Triumvirate and a two-time winner of the USGA's Herbert Warren Wind Award for best golf book of the year, The Range Bucket List is a funny, intimate, nostalgic journey of self and sport in which the legendary author completes his golfing 'bucket list.' Many years ago, when James Dodson was thirteen years old, he wrote himself a list titled 'Things to Do in Golf.' It included the golfing aspirations of a young boy who had no idea where life would take him. A few years ago, now in his sixties and one of the most respected golf writers of all time, Dodson rediscovered the piece of paper in an old trunk. Realizing that he had yet to achieve many of his thirteen-year-old dreams, and pondering the things he'd add to the list if he wrote it today, he expanded the list into a golfing 'bucket list' of the people and places he had yet to meet and see in the golf world. In this tribute to the game he loves, Dodson takes readers on a journey around the world and into the lives of characters large and small. From an interesting lunch with Donald Trump to rounds with John Updike and intimate conversations with Arnold Palmer, from scoring a memorable thirteen on a hole at St. Andrews to revealing the real reason The Masters has always been broadcast on CBS, The Range Bucket List is simultaneously an exhilarating armchair adventure and one man's love letter to a game that has fundamentally shaped him and his life, filled with unforgettable characters, untold history, and lots of heart"-- Provided by publisher. "From beloved golf writer James Dodson, author of Final Rounds and American Triumvirate and the only two-time winner of the USGA's Herbert Warren Wind Award for best golf book of the year, The Range Bucket List is a funny, intimate, nostalgic journey of self and sport that introduces readers to the most revered courses and personalities in the game as the legendary author completes his golfing 'bucket list'"-- Provided by publisher.

Title Death on Delos
Author Corby, Gary, author.
Publication Date(s) 2017
Series: An Athenian mystery ; 7
Format: Books
Summary "Greece, 545 BC: It is illegal to die on the sacred isle of Delos. It's also illegal to give birth there. Yet when murder is committed, the only available detective to solve the crime is the priestess Diotima, and she is heavily pregnant. Delos is the holy birthplace of the divine twins Apollo and Artemis, and it is an island in crisis. Not only has murder tainted the holy sanctuary, but there are about a thousand Athenian troops on the island. The army is led by the statesman Pericles and has come to take away the treasury of the Delian League, the defense fund of the Greeks against the Persian Empire. The holy people are in uproar. The Athenians are exasperated. The High Priest of the Delian Apollo is not amused. To cap it off, Diotima's husband and fellow detective, Nicolaos, is implicated in dodgy dealings that link him to the murder. Somehow Diotima must find the killer, calm the island, and. oh, yes. have a baby"-- Provided by publisher. "Greece, 545 BC: The sacred isle of Delos was the birthplace of the divine twins Apollo and Artemis, and has been a most holy pilgrimage site for centuries. But now it also serves a more secular function--it is the home of the treasury of the Delian League, the defensive union of Greek city-states who have come together in wake of the Persian Wars. The treasury is a vast fund, and it is protected only by the priests and priestesses of the tiny isle and a scant armed guard. Now Pericles, the charismatic Athenian statesman, has sent his agent Nico to Delos on a dangerous (and possibly illegal) mission: to claim the treasury and bring it back to Athens, where Pericles thinks it will be safer. Nico travels with his heavily pregnant wife and partner in sleuthing, the priestess Diotima, who has been selected to give this year's annual offering to Artemis. Expecting righteous resistance, Pericles has also tasked Nico with bribing priests who try to prevent the treasury from being moved. But before he can get very far with this dubiously unholy task, Nico ends up with a murder on his hands. It is a crime against the gods to die or be born on the sacred island. Thanks to the violence over the treasury, the first blasphemy has already been committed. Can Nico solve the murder and get Diotima off the island before they accidentally commit the second?"-- Provided by publisher.

Author McMillan, Claire, author.
Edition: First Touchstone hardcover edition.
Publication Date(s) 2017
Format: Books
Summary "This intoxicating novel set in the rarified world of money and society alternates between two generations of the Quincy family: the wealthy robber baron brothers who vied over a bewitching Jazz Age beauty and the young woman who inherits a spectacular and mysterious Indian necklace and its secrets. Always the black sheep, Nell Quincy is summoned to her family's elegantly shabby manor after the death of her great aunt. During a chilly meeting over cocktails, the family reads the will that makes Nell the executor of the estate and leaves her one item: a fantastically valuable, beautiful necklace from India. While the rest of the family jewels have been stored in a bank vault, Nell finds this priceless, forgotten heirloom in a Crown Royal whiskey bag stashed in the back of a dresser. As predatory Quincys circle Nell and art experts begin to question the necklace's shadowy provenance, Nell turns to the only person she thinks she can trust--the attractive and ambitious estate lawyer who definitely is not part of the old money crowd. Ambrose Quincy brought the necklace home from India in the 1920s as a dramatic gift for May, the woman he intended to marry. However, upon his return he discovers that May has married his brother Ethan, the "good" Quincy, devoted to helping their father with the family mining empire. As a gesture of friendship, Ambrose gives May the necklace anyway--reigniting their passion and beginning a tense love triangle. When Ethan confronts the two lovers, the encounter ends tragically, entombing a secret in the past that Nell must uncover if she is ever to claim her true Quincy birthright. Alternating between the past and present, The Necklace is the elegant and compelling story of a star-crossed romance, long-simmering family resentments, and a young woman whose inheritance is much more than a legendary necklace"-- Provided by publisher.

Title Maximinus Thrax : from common soldier to emperor of Rome

Title Maximinus Thrax :
Author Pearson, Paul N. (Paul Nicholas), author.
Edition: First Skyhorse Publishing edition.
Publication Date(s) 2017
Format: Books
Summary "Maximinus was a Thracian tribesman "of frightening appearance and colossal size" who could smash stones with his bare hands and pull fully laden wagons unaided. Such feats impressed the emperor Severus who enlisted Maximinus into the imperial bodyguard whereupon he embarked on a distinguished military career. Eventually he achieved senior command in the massive Roman invasion of Persia in 232 AD, and three years later he became emperor himself in a military coup-the first common soldier ever to assume the imperial throne. Supposedly more than seven feet tall (it is likely he had a pituitary disorder), Maximinus was surely one of Rome's most extraordinary emperors. He campaigned across the Rhine and Danube for three years until a rebellion erupted in Africa and the snobbish senate engaged in civil war against him. This is a narrative account of the life and times of the Thracian giant, from his humble origins up to and beyond the civil war of 238 AD. Replete with accounts of treachery, assassination, and civil war, Maximinus Thrax is written for enthusiasts of Roman history and warfare."--Publisher's website.

Title The untold journey : the life of Diana Trilling

Title The untold journey :
Author Robins, Natalie S.
Publication Date(s) 2017
Format: Books
Summary "Throughout her life, Diana Trilling (1905-1996) wrote about profound social changes with candor and wisdom, first for The Nation and later for Partisan Review, Harpers, and such popular magazines as Vogue and McCalls. She went on to publish five books, including the best-selling Mrs. Harris: The Death of the Scarsdale Diet Doctor, written when she was in her late seventies. She was also one half of one of the most famous intellectual couples in the United States. Diana Trilling's life with Columbia University professor and literary critic Lionel Trilling was filled with secrets, struggles, and betrayals, and she endured what she called her “own private hell” as she fought to reconcile competing duties and impulses at home and at work. She was a feminist, yet she insisted that women's liberation created unnecessary friction with men, asserting that her career ambitions should be on equal footing with caring for her child and supporting her husband. She fearlessly expressed sensitive, controversial, and moral views, and fought publicly with Lillian Hellman, among other celebrated writers and intellectuals, over politics. Diana Trilling was an anticommunist liberal, a position often misunderstood, especially by her literary and university friends. And finally, she was among the “New Journalists” who transformed writing and reporting in the 1960s, making her nonfiction as imaginative in style and scope as a novel. The first biographer to mine Diana Trilling's extensive archives, Natalie Robins tells a previously undisclosed history of an essential member of New York City culture at a time of dynamic change and intellectual relevance."--Provided by publisher.
