<p>“Heartbreaking. . . . Mordantly funny. . . . Takes us on a rare flight of self-transcendence. . . . Moments of recognition bring jolts like electric shocks.” —<i>The New York Review of Books</i><br>  <br> “Wonderful. . . . Masterful. . . . Profound. . . . Not a single false note.” —<i>USA Today<br></i><br> “[Moore] deftly paints with negative space, releasing tremendous poignancy. . . . A vibrant and nimble display of Moore’s signature wit.” —<i>San Francisco Chronicle<br></i><br> “Ms Moore’s writing glides. She describes the mundane with precision and grace. . . . <i>Bark</i> simultaneously honours and regrets the messiness of human relationships. Ms Moore is like one of her characters: ‘sternness in one eye and gentleness in the other.’” —<i>The Economist <br></i><br> “One of the finest short story writers in the country.” —<i>Los Angeles Review of Books <br></i><br> “[Moore’s] writing contains multitudes, mixed in exacting proportions, which is to say: this potpourri is utterly and totally unique. . . . There really is no one quite like her.” —<i>The New Republic</i><br>  <br> “Lorrie Moore still dazzles. . . . These powerfully, almost savagely, human stories shine with a spirit of playfulness and the logic of love.” —<i>O, The Oprah Magazine</i></p>

Life in Singapore is good, sometimes even dare we say it? absurd. In Singapore Siu Dai, Felix Cheong, with a little help from illustrator PMan, finds humour in the everyday.

More Details..

How can calculus help you survive the zombie apocalypse? Colin Adams, humor columnist for the Mathematical Intelligencer and one of today's most outlandish and entertaining popular math writers, demonstrates how in this zombie adventure novel.

Zombies and Calculus is the account of Craig Williams, a math professor at a small liberal arts college in New England, who, in the middle of a calculus class, finds himself suddenly confronted by a late-arriving student whose hunger is not for knowledge. As the zombie virus spreads and civilization crumbles, Williams uses calculus to help his small band of survivors defeat the hordes of the undead. Along the way, readers learn how to avoid being eaten by taking advantage of the fact that zombies always point their tangent vector toward their target, and how to use exponential growth to determine the rate at which the virus is spreading. Williams also covers topics such as logistic growth, gravitational acceleration, predator-prey models, pursuit problems, the physics of combat, and more. With the aid of his story, you too can survive the zombie onslaught.

Featuring easy-to-use appendixes that explain the book's mathematics in greater detail, Zombies and Calculus is suitable both for those who have only recently gotten the calculus bug, as well as for those whose disease has advanced to the multivariable stage.

More Details..

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER<br></b><br>Sophie Kinsella returns to her beloved Shopaholic series with Becky Brandon (née Bloomwood) newly arrived in Hollywood and starry-eyed. She and her two-year-old daughter, Minnie, have relocated to L.A. to join Becky’s husband, Luke, who is there to handle PR for famous actress Sage Seymour. Becky can’t wait to start living the A-list lifestyle, complete with celebrity sightings, yoga retreats, and shopping trips to Rodeo Drive. But she really hopes to become a personal stylist—Sage’s personal stylist—if only Luke would set up an introduction. Then, unexpectedly, Becky is offered the chance to dress Sage’s archrival, and though things become a bit more complicated, it’s a dream come true!<br>  <br> Red carpet premieres, velvet ropes, paparazzi clamoring for attention—suddenly Becky has everything she’s ever wanted.<br>  <br> Or does she?<br><br><b>Praise for <i>Shopaholic to the Stars</i></b><br> <b><i> </i></b><br> “A witty novel with the twists of a soap and the laughs of a rom-com.”<b>—<i>InTouch</i></b><br> <b><i> </i></b><br> “Shopaholic Becky is funnier than ever as she tries to make it in Hollywood as a celeb stylist.”<b>—<i>People</i></b><br> <b><i> </i></b><br> “Our beloved heroine Becky hilariously juggles motherhood and a new career. . . . Sophie Kinsella is such a genius.”<b>—<i>Redbook</i></b><br> <b><i> </i></b><br> “It’s impossible not to fall in love with Becky and her antics, and this latest offering doesn’t disappoint. With appeal for fans of Kinsella’s prior Shopaholic books, this one will draw in new fans as well. Like the first six in the series, [<i>Shopaholic to the Stars</i>] is screamingly funny and lots of fun.”<b>—<i>Publishers Weekly </i>(starred review)</b><br> <b> </b><br> “Fans of the series who love Becky just as she is (and has always been) will enjoy this seventh series entry. . . . Kinsella expertly plots this story and deftly drops in some unexpected twists.”<b>—<i>Library Journal</i></b><br> <b><i> </i></b><br> “Becky is a truly engaging narrator. She may be self-centered, a shopping addict and a bit flighty, but she’s also good-natured and genuinely funny. It’s a joy to accompany her on her journey, no matter how tangled it seems at times. A light, enjoyable read that’s pure escapism.”<b>—<i>Kirkus Reviews</i></b><br> <b><i> </i></b><br> “Winsome Becky’s romp through Hollywood will thoroughly entertain readers, and the novel’s conclusion neatly paves the way for Becky’s next adventure.”<b>—<i>Booklist</i></b><br> <b><i> </i></b><br> “Loyal fans who have enjoyed Kinsella’s flakey protagonist in previous stories will enjoy this outing.”<b>—Fredericksburg<i> Free Lance–Star</i></b><br> <b><i> </i></b><br> “Kinsella fans will be ecstatic for this long-awaited addition to the author’s Shopaholic series. Lighthearted, warm, funny—Kinsella rules the red carpet with Becky’s new Hollywood adventures. A little unsolved mystery at the end may cause the paparazzi to swarm Becky’s home and leave readers wanting more.”<b>—<i>RT Book Reviews</i></b>
