New. Paperback. 588 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 1.4in.The Man Booker Prizenominated novel by one of the most original authors of our timeStorm clouds are gathering above the bar of the less-than-exclusive Thistle Hotel. Stuart Ransom, a jet-setting, supermodel-chasing pro golfer with an extravagant ego and a career nearing the end of a spectacular decline, is drinking his way through the night. Desperate for attention, he strikes up free-flowing conversations with anyone who will listen. But as he banters with Jen, the impish barmaid with a talent for telling tall tales rivaled only by Stuarts own, the night takes an extraordinary turn. Among those caught up in the unfolding drama are a tattooist with a mad mother and a love of anything from the 1940s; a free-thinking Muslim sex therapist and his considerably more conservative wife; the mysterious Vicki, the sister of Stuarts defiant yet curiously devoted manager; and a misguided female vicar of the Church of England and her husband, Gene, the Thistles hapless bartender. They are a highly entertaining and eccentric bunch, but theres more to them than meets the eye. There enter in questions of what it is to be consumed by love or lust, by shame, by the longing to be someone else or nobody (The Guardian), and The Yips unites them in an absorbing, exhilarating tour de force.

Soft Cover. 0446874957 . 76 pages, well illustrated in color, pictorial wraps, very good. From the introduction by Claude Roy, adapted by Peter Stark: The dictionary definition of a heart is: 'Hollow organ keeping up circulation by contracting and dilating.' It weighs about 260 grammes. Revealed by a surgeon, it gleams in its lustrous red sheath and pumps with a heavy sustained vigour. A dull, obstinate organ, doing its job, it bears little more physical resemblance to the heart scrawled on walls or carve on trees by lovers than does the Chinese character for heart, XIN. From one culture to another, the symbol used to denote a heat has been different; in ancient Egypt, an urn; among primitive, an 'oeil du Coeur.' These symbols are so ancient they owe their origins to a period before the invention of the written word; and yet they have survived its invention; ideogram, pictograms, glyphs, hieroglyphs. They had little to do with the raw hearts warriors once plucked from their fallen victims' breasts or, over which in the most modern operating theatres surgeons now pause, knife in hand. They were never intended to be portraits of a sinewy, heaving muscle, the size of a clenched fist. The symbols were symptoms of life, a kind of instantly accessible mental shorthand; a vestless motif, found on wells, in dungeons, in bakers' moulds, in pendants, a design used by tattooists; or represented garlanded with roses or bound with thorns, pierced by arrows, by daggers; nothing to do with the real heart; the heat that just went on beating, mindless as a metronome. . . ., Warner Books, 1977
