"I don’t want to be married to you." This was one of the last things Alexandra Fuller said to her husband before the horrific accident that would change their lives forever. In her most personal memoir yet, the bestselling author of "Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight" and "Cocktails Under the Tree of Forgetfulness" tells the heartrending story of her long and stormy marriage to Charlie Ross, the love of her life, the father of her three children, and the man she ultimately couldn’t live with. Her tale of passion and loss will speak to wives, husbands, and anyone who has been deeply in love. Fuller was a young British college graduate recently returned to her parents’ farm in Zambia when she met and fell hard for Ross, a handsome American river guide. Before long they were married with a newborn, living in a cottage on the Zambezi River, caught up with the challenges of life in the African wilds, including a near-death bout with malaria. It was easy to overlook the cracks that soon began to show in their relationship. “The place, with all its beautiful difficulties,” Fuller writes, “supplanted the need for real conversation, filled the space that might have been left for the exchange of real ideas and intimacy, and made up in drama and splendor what we lacked in closeness.” The couple marched on, sticking it out through a move to the United States, ongoing financial struggles, and Fuller’s determination to succeed as a writer. But the troubles between them only got worse. Then came the day when a peaceful horseback ride went tragically wrong, forcing Fuller to come to terms with her life and her toxic marriage.

"This is a book about science, technology, and love," writes Sherry Turkle. In it, we learn how a love for science can start with a love for an object—a microscope, a modem, a mud pie, a pair of dice, a fishing rod. Objects fire imagination and set young people on a path to a career in science. In this collection, distinguished scientists, engineers, and designers as well as twenty-five years of MIT students describe how objects encountered in childhood became part of the fabric of their scientific selves. In two major essays that frame the collection, Turkle tells a story of inspiration and connection through objects that is often neglected in standard science education and in our preoccupation with the virtual. The senior scientists' essays trace the arc of a life: the gears of a toy car introduce the chain of cause and effect to artificial intelligence pioneer Seymour Papert; microscopes disclose the mystery of how things work to MIT President and neuroanatomist Susan Hockfield; architect Moshe Safdie describes how his boyhood fascination with steps, terraces, and the wax hexagons of beehives lead him to a life immersed in the complexities of design. The student essays tell stories that echo these narratives: plastic eggs in an Easter basket reveal the power of centripetal force; experiments with baking illuminate the geology of planets; LEGO bricks model worlds, carefully engineered and colonized. All of these voices—students and mentors—testify to the power of objects to awaken and inform young scientific minds. This is a truth that is simple, intuitive, and easily overlooked. Introductory and concluding essays by: Sherry Turkle. Mentor essays by: Susan Hockfield, Donald Ingber, Alan Kay, Sarah Kuhn, Donald Norman, Seymour Papert, Rosalind Picard, Moshe Safdie.

Falling in love, with all its accompanying problems, was a subject of obsessive interest among writers and readers in the Ming Dynasty, when society held strictly to arranged marriages. The stories in this engaging collection all deal with this theme in very different ways, sometimes comically, sometimes tragically. They portray young people choosing their own lovers, resorting to ingenious stratagems and risky escapades in defiance of contemporary mores. Chosen to represent the best works from the great age of the vernacular story, they offer an admirable introduction to the world of Chinese fiction in this era. All of the stories in Falling in Love have been translated especially for this volume, and most appear here in translation for the first time. They are taken from two works, Constant Words to Awaken the World (Xing shi heng yan) and a related collection, The Rocks Nod Their Heads (Shi dian tou), both published in the early seventeenth century.
