One of Charles Bukowski's best, this beer-soaked, deliciously degenerate novel follows the wanderings of aspiring writer Henry Chinaski across World War II-era America. Deferred from military service, Chinaski travels from city to city, moving listlessly from one odd job to another, always needing money but never badly enough to keep a job. His day-to-day existence spirals into an endless litany of pathetic whores, sordid rooms, dreary embraces, and drunken brawls, as he makes his bitter, brilliant way from one drink to the next. Charles Bukowski's posthumous legend continues to grow. Factotum is a masterfully vivid evocation of slow-paced, low-life urbanity and alcoholism, and an excellent introduction to the fictional world of Charles Bukowski.

Rossamund Bookchild's lamplighting career has been brought to a dramatic close, and he now faces a new life as personal assistant to Europe, a powerful monster-hunter. As he settles into his new role, he finally discovers the story of his origins - a story that must remain hidden if he is to survive in a land divided by the conflict between men and monsters. But now that he knows the truth, how can Rossamund work alongside a professional monster-hater? Only his loyalty to Europe keeps him by her side as they embark on a dangerous monster-hunting tour that must in tragedy...

Rossamund has exchanged Winstermill and the dangerous life of a lamplighter for Brandenbrass and an even more dangerous life as factotum to the aristocratic monster-slayer, Europe. Fear and self-doubt must wait, however, as she plunges headlong into the fulgar's day-to-day life of political manoeuvring, high-society parties and well-paid monster-hunting. But whispers and rumours about her new factotum place Europe herself in danger, and now Rossamund and the Branden Rose will face the ultimate battle against their enemies, the black-hearted schemers who would destroy them both.

From the time it was written, the aria "Largo al factotum" from Rossini's Il barbiere di Siviglia has been performed and ornamented in many different ways. The present study is an inventory and analysis of ornaments sung in 33 recordings from 1900 to 2011 and the major differences that they exhibit one from another. The singers in this study are baritones with international careers, who have performed the role of Figaro either at the Metropolitan Opera (New York) or at La Scala (Milan). The study identifies and tracks some of the changes in the ornamentation of the aria by noting common traits and new approaches across the one hundred eleven years of practice illustrated by the recordings.

Michael Wolff's wickedly funny chronicle of his rags-to-riches-to-rags adventure as a fledgling Internet entrepreneur exposes an industry powered by hype, celebrity, and billions of investment dollars -- and notably devoid of profit-making enterprises. As he describes his efforts to control his company's burn rate -- the amount of money the company consumes in excess of its income -- Wolff offers a no-holds-barred portrait of unaccountable successes and major disasters, including the story behind Wired magazine and its fanatical founder, Louis Rossetto; the rise of America Online, perhaps the most dysfunctional successful company in history, and the humiliating inability of people such as Bill Gates to untangle the intricacies of the Web.

The representation theory of the symmetric group, of Chevalley groups particularly in positive characteristic and of Lie algebraic systems, has undergone some remarkable developments in recent years. Many techniques are inspired by the great works of Issai Schur who passed away some 60 years ago. This volume is dedicated to his memory. This is a unified presentation consisting of an extended biography of Schur---written in collaboration with some of his former students---as well as survey articles on Schur's legacy (Schur theory, functions, etc). Additionally, there are articles covering the areas of orbits, crystals and representation theory, with special emphasis on canonical bases and their crystal limits, and on the geometric approach linking orbits to representations and Hecke algebra techniques. Extensions of representation theory to mathematical physics and geometry will also be presented. Contributors: Biography: W. Ledermann, B. Neumann, P.M. Neumann, H. Abelin- Schur; Review of work: H. Dym, V. Katznelson; Original papers: H. H. Andersen, A. Braverman, S. Donkin, V. Ivanov, D. Kazhdan, B. Kostant, A. Lascoux, N. Lauritzen, B. Leclerc, P. Littelmann, G. Luzstig, O. Mathieu, M. Nazarov, M. Reinek, J.-Y. Thibon, G. Olshanski, E. Opdam, A. Regev, C.S. Seshadri, M. Varagnolo, E. Vasserot, A. Vershik This volume will serve as a comprehensive reference as well as a good text for graduate seminars in representation theory, algebra, and mathematical physics.

'The master of the triple double-cross' (The Times) ________ Spring, 1919. James ‘Max’ Maxted, former Great War flying ace, returns to the trail of murder, treachery and half-buried secrets. Having left Paris after avenging the murder of his father, Sir Henry Maxted, he is convinced there is more – much more – to be discovered about what Sir Henry had been trying to accomplish. And he suspected elusive German spymaster Fritz Lemmer knows the truth of it. Now, undercover in Lemmer’s service but with his loyalty pledged to the British Secret Service, Max sets out on his first – and possibly last – mission for Lemmer. It takes him to the far north of Scotland – to the Orkney Isles, where the German High Seas Fleet has been impounded in Scapa Flow, its fate to be decided at the conference-table in Paris. His mission: to recover and transport a document held aboard one of the German ships. But what that document contains will force him to break cover and race south, towards London. But can he survive long enough to deliver it?
