In the tradition of The Boys of Summer and The Bronx Is Burning, New York Times sports columnist Harvey Araton delivers a fascinating look at the 1970s New York Knicks—part autobiography, part sports history, part epic, set against the tumultuous era when Walt Frazier, Willis Reed, and Bill Bradley reigned supreme in the world of basketball. Perfect for readers of Jeff Pearlman’s The Bad Guys Won!, Peter Richmond’s Badasses, and Pat Williams’s Coach Wooden, Araton’s revealing story of the Knicks’ heyday is far more than a review of one of basketball’s greatest teams’ inspiring story—it is, at heart, a stirring recreation of a time and place when the NBA championships defined the national dream.

A sensational bestseller when it appeared in 1986, The Garden of Eden is the last uncompleted novel of Ernest Hemingway, which he worked on intermittently from 1946 until his death in 1961. Set on the Côte d'Azur in the 1920s, it is the story of a young American writer, David Bourne, his glamorous wife, Catherine, and the dangerous, erotic game they play when they fall in love with the same woman. "A lean, sensuous narrative...taut, chic, and strangely contemporary," The Garden of Eden represents vintage Hemingway, the master "doing what nobody did better" (R. Z. Sheppard, Time).
This non-academic author brings the Garden of Eden myth alive as sophisticated poetry and a polemic for women and the consciousness of freedom. The myth is explored line by line using the tools of literary analysis and modern ideas, including Freudian concepts. The analysis shows how its "J" author, thought to be a woman in the royal court of Judah around 1000 BCE, uses the techniques of sound association, puns and other sophisticated means to get her messages across. The analysis probes how after thousands of years this myth still speaks to us about the critical human experiences of sex and death and their bigger brothers freedom and limitation.
Getting Back into the Garden of Eden studies the story of the Garden of Eden in-depth from an historical-psychological perspective for the first time. It explores how the historical experiences of the Hebrew people became transformed into the psychologically meaningful and therefore symbolic characters and situations in the first three chapters of the Genesis story. It examines the possibilities of the placement and inspiration for the Garden from the oases of the Arabian desert and the advanced irrigation culture of the areas of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

If you want to understand who you are, get to know Adam and Eve. They spoke for you. They lived for you. Most importantly, Adam and Eve tell you who you really are. You are either a living being or a fallen human being. You are one or the other. This perception is made clear from the author's discussion on the lessons from Adam and Eve. Eve was seeking knowledge while Adam was seeking selfish ambitions. In the pre-fall, Adam and Eve had no sin. But each one turned to their own desires to find pleasure and a righteousness of their own in the garden, when God them free will and the right of choice. During the freedom period in the garden, Adam and Eve sinned against God. After their fall, Adam and Eve attempted to inaugurate a new religion, distinct from the religion they had before the fall.

As touching as it is humorous, The Garden of Eden is a parable for our time with a powerful and ultimately redemptive ending that speaks to oft underappreciated virtues such as loyalty (sticking with those you love even when they screw up royally), tolerance, and forgiveness. It's also about the values that keep America together--the simple solutions ordinary people find to keep their small communities strong. Trooper Sam Neely is fresh out of the State Police academy and finds himself assigned to the dullest backwater town he's never heard of. Things heat up quickly in Eden, U.S.A., however, when Ed Harris, the banker, finds his wife in bed with his best friend, Hayden Elkins. Ed picks up a shotgun, escorts them both to the door, and tells friend Hayden, "Guess what? She's yours!" "I've got a wife, Ed," says Hayden. "Now you have two. . . ." Forced to take his paramour to live under his own roof (after all, they had only intended to share an afternoon of delight, not to leave their spouses), Hayden suddenly finds himself the butt of every joke in town. That's where things start to spin out of control. Before long, Elijah Murphy, the town drunk, and the snooping widow next door, to whom he'd exposed himself, are falling in love; sleazy Sheriff's Deputy Delmar Clay is about to get a butt-full of birdshot for the pictures he's been snapping of young couples getting hot and heavy in parked cars; and the Barrow Boys are out of jail and looking for trouble. Soon, Neely finds that managing the crises in the sticks is a full-time job, and it takes a whole community--from the compassionate local magistrate to the new female preacher--to keep things from exploding big-city style.
If you're like most people, you are probably bewildered by the tremendous amount of conflicting health information you hear and read about every day. For the first time, the knowledge you need to make sense out of all the confusion is presented in The Garden of Eden Molecule. Pulitzer prize-winning author Ronald Kotulak distills the research studies into a lucid explanation of what's going on inside your body at the most fundamental level to keep you youthful or to age you beyond your years. It comes down to the delicate balance between free radicals and antioxidants. Free radicals, molecular sparks that date to the beginning of the universe, give us the energy we need to live, but they have a nasty side: they are responsible for aging and for heart attacks, cancer, Alzheimer's disease and other common chronic disorders. In fact, all of the major causes of death today are free radical diseases. But fortunately for us, nature has provided antioxidants, molecules that we can use to block the harmful effects of free radicals. The Garden of Eden Molecule provides powerful new information that will help you make choices that can dramatically improve your health and lengthen your life.
Adam, a man who became complete after God's gift of Eve, had everything anyone could want. Not only did he have it all, everything that he had was perfect, living in harmony with Eve and his surroundings, the way God created it to be. Suddenly all of this changed, one decision by Adam rendered all of this to ash. Cast out of the Garden's beauty and perfection, Adam and Eve find themselves living the rest of their lives under a curse of hardship and death. Why?
A provocative new interpretation of the Adam and Eve story from an expert in Biblical literature. The Garden of Eden story, one of the most famous narratives in Western history, is typically read as an ancient account of original sin and humanity’s fall from divine grace. In this highly innovative study, Ziony Zevit argues that this is not how ancient Israelites understood the early biblical text. Drawing on such diverse disciplines as biblical studies, geography, archaeology, mythology, anthropology, biology, poetics, law, linguistics, and literary theory, he clarifies the worldview of the ancient Israelite readers during the First Temple period and elucidates what the story likely meant in its original context. Most provocatively, he contends that our ideas about original sin are based upon misconceptions originating in the Second Temple period under the influence of Hellenism. He shows how, for ancient Israelites, the story was really about how humans achieved ethical discernment. He argues further that Adam was not made from dust and that Eve was not made from Adam’s rib. His study unsettles much of what has been taken for granted about the story for more than two millennia—and has far-reaching implications for both literary and theological interpreters. “Classical Hebrew in the hands of Ziony Zevit is like a cello in the hands of a master cellist. He knows all the hidden subtleties of the instrument, and he makes you hear them in this rendition of the profoundly simple story of Adam, Eve, the Serpent, and their Creator in the Garden of Eden. Zevit brings a great deal of other biblical learning to bear in a surprisingly light-hearted book.”―Jack Miles, author of God: A Biography
