The Devil in Winter
From Avon Books: Desperate to escape her scheming
relatives, Evangeline Jenner has sought the help of the most infamous scoundrel
in London. A marriage of convenience is the only solution.
No one would have ever paired the shy, stammering
wallflower with the sinfully handsome viscount. It quickly becomes clear,
however, that Evie is a woman of hidden strength—and Sebastian desires her more
than any woman he's ever known. Determined to win her husband's elusive
heart, Evie dares to strike a bargain with the devil: If Sebastian can stay
celibate for three months, she will allow him into her bed.
In twenty-nine provocative essays, Joyce Carol Oates maps
the 'rough country' that is both the treacherous geographical and psychological
terrain of the writers she so cogently analyzes—Flannery O'Connor, Cormac
McCarthy, Philip Roth, E. L. Doctorow, and Margaret Atwood, among others—and the
emotional terrain of Oates's own life following the unexpected death of her

early academic life at Oxford. Walter Hooper's insightful notes and biographical
appendix of all the correspondents make this an irreplaceable reference for
those curious about the life and work of one of the most creative minds of the
C. S. Lewis was a prolific letter writer, and his
personal correspondence reveals much of his private life, reflections,
friendships, and the progress of his thought. This second of a three-volume
collection contains the letters Lewis wrote after his conversion to
Christianity, as he began a lifetime of serious writing. Lewis corresponded with
many of the twentieth century's major literary figures, including J. R. R.
Tolkien and Dorothy Sayers. Here we encounter a surge of letters in response to
a new audience of laypeople who wrote to him after the great success of his BBC
radio broadcasts during World War II—talks that would ultimately become his
masterwork, Mere Christianity.
For nearly two millennia, the holy men and women of
Eastern Christianity have built lives of reflection, humility, and constant
connection to God around a simple sentence, the Jesus Prayer. Now,Norris J.
Chumley—a documentarian and professor—reveals the history, practices,and abiding
wisdom of this mystical tradition to the rest of the world.
