Fox, James
Drawn from the private family archive, this book recounts a family's dramatic reinvention and transformation on both sides of the Atlantic. "All of the Langhorne sisters are people one has to notice", wrote Eleanor Roosevelt from the White House in 1945. This effect and their great fame held sway first in the South, in Virginia, then the rest of America and England. High spirited, beautiful, clannish and adored, these five strikingly different women were mythologized in the plural long after their separate careers were a matter of history. Lizzie was the strict, puritan eldest sister, Irene was the flirtatious and golden southern belle. Nancy was flamboyant and powerful, and, after a disastrous first marriage, launched herself first on the stuffy ruling classes of England and then the House of Commons as the first woman MP. The luminous and melancholy Phyllis was a brilliant horsewoman and the only person Nancy loved all through her life. Nora was the eternal child, her life punctuated with seductions and boltings. This exploration of family myth unravels the darker stories: the tragic lives of Nancy and Phyllis's children by their first marriages. Placing his great aunt Nancy and grandmother Phyllis at its heart, the book looks at how their past lives and mistakes in America came back to haunt them. Told in their own intimate voices, selected from thousands of letters and journals, the book charts the attempts of two extraordinary women to transform themselves and to build new lives, and the chain of events that would destroy their family lives and happiness. Top edge of D/J slightly creased. Small tear to top corner of D/J on front wrapper. 578pp.

Bloomfield, Debra
In 1989 photographer Debra Bloomfield got into her car and headed east from California. Near Oak Creek Canyon in Arizona she began photographing, feeling somehow a part of the landscape through which she travelled. For the next ten years, she would sojourn in the desert and mountain regions of the Southwest three or four times a year, expanding her horizons topographically and spiritually, capturing with her camera a juxtaposition of vast spaces and lonely intimacy inherent in the terrain that surrounded her. In 1997 she found herself in Las Trampas, New Mexico, and discovered through its church and others like it in the northern areas of the state that interior spaces can evoke the same kinds of meanings for her as landscapes do. In both, she felt a sense of place and history, of hope and transformation. At once ethereal and haunting, her images are also transcendent, suggesting a balance between spiritual and secular. 159pp. N.B. Closed tear to top edge of front D/J.
