The Pulitzer Prize-winning novel becomes a motion picture starring Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, and Nicole Kidman, directed by Stephen Daldry from a screenplay by David Hare The Hours tells the story of three women: Virginia Woolf, beginning to write Mrs. Dalloway as she recuperates in a London suburb with her husband in 1923; Clarissa Vaughan, beloved friend of an acclaimed poet dying from AIDS, who in modern-day New York is planning a party in his honor; and Laura Brown, in a 1949 Los Angeles suburb, who slowly begins to feel the constraints of a perfect family and home. By the end of the novel, these three stories intertwine in remarkable ways, and finally come together in an act of subtle and haunting grace. The Hours is the winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

In The Hours, Michael Cunningham—widely praised as one of the most gifted writers of his generation—draws inventively on the life and work of Virginia Woolf to tell the story of a group of contemporary characters struggling with the conflicting claims of love and inheritance, hope and despair. The narrative of Woolf ’s last days before her suicide early in World War II counterpoints the fictional stories of Richard, a famous poet whose life has been shadowed by his talented and troubled mother, and his lifelong friend Clarissa, who strives to forge a balanced and rewarding life in spite of the demands of friends, lovers and family. Passionate, profound and deeply moving, The Hours is Cunningham’s most remarkable achievement to date.

At her coming the lotus flowers begin their journey upward towards the light that she has risen to adore, and whose reflection is already present with her presence. The souls of men rise slowly from their bed of material darkness. -from "Isis at the First Hour" First published in 1928, this is a delightful document of the Egyptology craze Howard Carter had set off six years earlier with his discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb. A meditation on the magic and mystery of the Egyptian goddess Isis, this beautiful book, illustrated with charming ink drawings, it eschews the hard facts of Egyptian history to present a free-flowing reflection on the legend of Isis, its interpretation, and it connection to the human soul. EVELYN EATON (1902-1983) was born in Switzerland to a Canadian army officer and his wife, and educated in Canada and England. She wrote numerous book, including The Interpreter and The Circling Mist.

This book examines the process of the structural reform of the Office, the options available to the Vatican II reformers, and the choices they made. It reveals that their insistence on adhering to the norms of the Consitution on the Liturgy resulted in a structural reform that was both radical and flawed, leaving the door open to further restructuring.
