Neville Cardus described how one majestic stroke-maker 'made music' and 'spread beauty' with his bat. Between two world wars, he became the laureate of cricket by doing the same with words. In The Great Romantic, award-winning author Duncan Hamilton demonstrates how Cardus changed sports journalism for ever. While popularising cricket - while appealing, in Cardus' words to people who 'didn't know a leg-break from the pavilion cat at Lord's'- he became a star in his own right with exquisite phrase-making, disdain for statistics and a penchant for literary and musical allusions. Among those who venerated Cardus were PG Wodehouse, John Arlott, Harold Pinter, JB Priestley and Don Bradman. However, behind the rhapsody in blue skies, green grass and colourful characters, this richly evocative biography finds that Cardus' mother was a prostitute, he never knew his father and he received negligible education. Infatuations with younger women ran parallel to a decidedly unromantic marriage. And, astonishingly, the supreme stylist's aversion to factual accuracy led to his reporting on matches he never attended. Yet Cardus also belied his impoverished origins to prosper in a second class-conscious profession, becoming a music critic of international renown. The Great Romantic uncovers the dark enigma within a golden age.

The Great Romance, a two-volume novella published under the pseudonym “The Inhabitant,” was one of the outstanding late nineteenth-century works of utopian science fiction. Volume 1 was a possible model for Edward Bellamy’s phenomenally successful Looking Backward, while volume 2 was assumed lost for over a century until uncovered in the Hocken Library in Dunedin, New Zealand. Together these volumes represent a remarkable piece of science fiction writing as they proffer one of the first serious considerations of the colonization of other planets and the impact of human beings on an alien culture. Here, for the first time, readers encounter descriptions of spacesuits and airlocks, space shuttles and planetary rovers, interplanetary colonization and cross-species miscegenation. Behind these genre-defining elements is the story of John Hope, who, by means of a sleeping elixir, awakes to a utopian community in a distant future—a “kingdom of thought” where the struggle for existence has been eliminated and humanity operates under an unwritten law of civility and harmony, aided by telekinesis that inerrantly reveals all wrong-doers. Since only two of the probably three volumes are extant, the tale ends with a chilling cliffhanger. In his introduction Dominic Alessio discusses the cutting-edge aspects of this work and its significance in both the realm of science fiction and the history and culture of its day.

At once a portrait of a singular man and the story of a unique place, The Great Romance recounts the extraordinary life of Lee Elman, a lawyer turned real estate investor, longtime patron of the arts, public servant, bon vivant, expert horseman, accomplished mountain climber, polyglot, devoted father, and lover of all things—and people—beautiful. Set at Aston Magna, Elman’s historic estate in the Berkshires of Great Barrington, Massachusetts, The Great Romance articulates a philosophy of life that is rooted in an existential resolve to create meaning and a humanistic ardor to make every moment matter. Here, as well, we follow the story of a friendship that leads, finally, to the transformation of what for the author had been a lingering sadness. And we meet many of the men and women with whom Elman has worked, played, and together embraced the motto sculpted on the ancient sacrificial altar that stands by Aston Magna’s outdoor pool: “Sol redit, tempus nunquam”— “the sun returns, time never.”

In considering the greatest of these films over time, Mr. Kimmel explains why When Harry Met Sally (1989) was called the greatest movie Woody Allen never made. Or how off-screen relationships helped My Man Godfrey (William Powell and Carole Lombard were divorced but remained friends) but interfered with Sabrina (where Audrey Hepburn was carrying on an off-screen affair with co-star William Holden, though her character was supposed to be falling in love with her other co-star, Humphrey Bogart). From Trouble in Paradise (1932) to There's Something About Mary (1998), Bridget Jones's Diary (2001), and Love, Actually (2003), Mr. Kimmel uncovers the idealized and often uproarious images of true love that have grown to become part of our understanding of romance. In I'll Have What She's Having he helps us meet the actors, screenwriters, directors, and producers who accomplished this trick and shows us how they pooled their talents and did it.

The Italy that famous poets such as Robert Browning and his wife Elizabeth Barrett Browning loved so dearly, was not by any means merely that sculptured and ornate sepulcher that so many of those cultivated English men and women who lived there and enjoyed and admired and despised it in the 19th century thought it to be. To the Brownings Italy was a wonderful living organicism: the center of the religion and politics of a continent; the ancient and flaming heart of Western history. It was Europe in its consummate form, and they lived there at the time of the most moving and gigantic of all dramas – the making of a new nation – one of the events that gives the sense that earth is yet in the genesis of creation. Before their eyes, with every circumstance of energy and mystery, was passing the panorama of the unification of Italy, with the daring, heroic and romantic militarism of Garibaldi, and the bold, diplomatic genius of Cavour. It was a time when affairs of State were works of art, and the theaters of war on land and sea were filled with the excitement, drama and pathos in which poets triumph.
