Christmas just isn t Christmas without "The Nutcracker"! This beautiful book, which includes a fully orchestrated CD of the score, invites children to dance, prance, and relive the ballet long after the tree comes down. Second-hand Time is the latest work from Svetlana Alexievich, winner of the 2015 Nobel Prize in Literature for inventing 'a new kind of literary genre'. Here she brings together the voices of dozens of witnesses to the collapse of the USSR in a formidable attempt to chart the disappearance of a culture and to surmise what new kind of man may emerge from the rubble. Fashioning a singular, polyphonic literary form by combining extended individual monologues with a collage of voices, Alexievich creates a magnificent requiem to a civilization in On Becoming a Mother: Welcoming Your New Baby and Your New Life with Wisdom from Around the World download book ruins, a brilliant, poignant and unique portrait of post-Soviet society out of the stories of ordinary women and men.
