[EAN: 9780738563176], [PU: Arcadia Publishing], This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Title: 2008's best books: Yours and ours Author: Bob Hoover Publisher: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Date: 12/14/2008 There are plenty of people who are glad to see this year end, but readers shouldn't be among them. The year brought a wealth of interesting, entertaining and provocative books and introduced several writers with promise along with worthy efforts from the old reliables -- and some that didn't make the mark. All this means it's time again to rate the books of the year. We're doing it a little differently for 2008, though. We've sought your input along with the book reviewers of the Post-Gazette. The results are three lists of 2008 releases -- reviewers' top 20 books, the readers' favorites and significant regional books of the year. OUR PICKS Novels "Songs for the Missing" by Stewart O'Nan. Pittsburgh native uses Eastern Ohio for a moving tale of a missing teen. "Senselessness" by Horacio Castellanos Moya. The El Salvadoran's first novel translated into English makes a powerful statement. "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" by David Wroblewski. Tragedy forces a disabled boy to depend on his dogs for survival. "The Enchantress of Florence" by Salman Rushdie. A master novelist entertains with a magical tour of history. "Home" by Marilynne Robinson. Religion, family, love melded in 1950s Iowa. "Lush Life" by Richard Price. The Lower East Side of New York is turned into a clash of cultures. "The Given Day" by Dennis Lehane. Post-World War I Boston is on the verge of anarchy as Babe Ruth enjoys the show. "People of the Book" by Geraldine Brooks. A beautifully rendered history of Jewish struggle in Europe. "A Mercy" by Toni Morrison. America on the cusp of institutionalizing slavery is described in her singular way. "The Whiskey Rebels" by David Liss. Nasty life on the Pennsylvania frontier with threats from criminals and the U.S. government. "The Condition" by Jennifer Haigh. "Beach reading" turns into solid domestic drama. "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" by Stieg Larsson. Late Swedish writer dazzles in puzzling mystery. Short Stories "Dangerous Laughter" by Steven Millhauser. The Pulitzer Prize winner's satire is sharp as ever. "Fine Just the Way It Is" by Annie Proulx. Life doesn't get any easier in Wyoming, but it's still on the weird side. "Unaccustomed Earth" by Jhumpa Lahiri. Indian-American lives unfold with sympathy and warmth. "Our Story Begins" by Tobias Wolff. Short-story craftsman at work. "Dictation" by Cynthia Ozick. Women find their way in a tough men's world in these four stories. "Out Loud" by Anthony Varallo. Heinz Literature Prize winner writes with humor and sensitivity. Poetry "Sleeping It Off in Rapid City" by August Kleinzahler. Life's a gritty place, but lyrical. "Fire to Fire" by Mark Doty. Winner of the National Book Award. "Save the Last Dance" by Gerald Stern. Pittsburgh's finest poet struts his moves at age 83. Biography "Bill Mauldin: A Life Up Front" by Todd DePastino. Mt. Lebanon resident fleshes out the mission of World War II's best cartoonist. "Traitor to his Class" by H.W. Brands. A fresh take on Franklin Roosevelt. "The Bin Ladens" by Steve Coll."

ID: 978073856317

Pittsburgh: 1758-2008 surveys the city''s evolution from strategic fort in the wilderness to bustling industrial workshop to high-tech center for universities and health care. A boatbuilding center and gateway to the West at the beginning of the 19th century, Pittsburgh later produced iron and steel used to construct bridges and buildings around the country and provided the cannons, shot, and ships that helped win wars around the world. In the process, Pittsburgh became a magnet for successive waves of immigrants--workers and entrepreneurs who shaped the culture and character of the city with their customs, churches, clubs, food, and an impressive collection of museums. Among its many attributes, Pittsburgh is the birthplace of Carnegie libraries in the United States, wire cable suspension bridges, the gas station, the Ferris wheel, commercial radio, public television, and bingo.
