The international bestseller, translated from the German by Simon Pare. On a beautifully restored barge on the Seine, Jean Perdu runs a bookshop; or rather a 'literary apothecary', for this bookseller possesses a rare gift for sensing which books will soothe the troubled souls of his customers. The only person he is unable to cure, it seems, is himself. He has nursed a broken heart ever since the night, twenty-one years ago, when the love of his life fled Paris, leaving behind a handwritten letter that he has never dared read. His memories and his love have been gathering dust - until now. The arrival of an enigmatic new neighbour in his eccentric apartment building on Rue Montagnard inspires Jean to unlock his heart, unmoor the floating bookshop and set off for Provence, in search of the past and his beloved.

Bella?' Edward's soft voice came from behind me. I turned to see him spring lightly up the porch steps, his hair windblown from running. He pulled me into his arms at once, and kissed me again. His kiss frightened me. There was too much tension, too strong an edge to the way his lips crushed mine - like he was afraid we had only so much time left to us. As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her friendship with Jacob - knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the ageless struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation approaching, Bella has one more decision to make: life or death. But which is which? Following the international bestsellers Twilight and New Moon, Eclipse is the much-anticipated third book in Stephenie Meyer's captivating saga of vampire romance.

"I. M. Pei is one of the twentieth century's most celebrated architects, a designer whose sense of form and light has ensured his buildings an iconic status for their innovation and beauty. In this set of interviews with Gero von Boehm, Pei explains in his own words how his fascination with the art of architecture culminated in a career and an oeuvre almost unparalleled in modern building." "This volume presents this master architect in a profoundly personal manner, touching on the influences he gathered in the gardens and cities of his native China, his studies under the great masters of modernism at America's most prestigious universities, and his ascent to the top of his profession in the United States and internationally. Complete with a colorplate section showing Pei's works, a selection of his drawings, and a catalog of his oeuvre, this volume offers a view of a truly extraordinary man. Conversations with I. M. Pei: Light is the Key is as valuable a resource for the general reader as it is for architects and students."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
