Peter Mountford, "Dismal Science," and Gina Frangello, "A Life in Men"
The Book Cellar is delighted to host Peter Mountford
and Gina Frangello
as they share their respective books, The Dismal Science
and A Life in Men
. The Dismal Science
tells of a middle-aged vice president at the World Bank, Vincenzo D’Orsi, who publicly quits his job over a seemingly minor argument with a colleague. A scandal inevitably ensues, and he systematically burns every bridge to his former life. After abandoning his career, Vincenzo, a recent widower, is at a complete loss as to what to do with himself. The story follows his efforts to rebuild his identity without a vocation or the company of his wife.An exploration of the fragile nature of identity, The Dismal Science reveals the terrifying speed with which a person’s sense of self can be annihilated. It is at once a study of a man attempting to apply his reason to the muddle of life and a book about how that same ostensible rationality, and the mathematics of finance in particular, operates—with similarly dubious results—in our world.
A Life in Men: The friendship between Mary and Nix had endured since childhood, a seemingly unbreakable bond, until the mid-1980s, when the two young women embarked on a summer vacation in Greece. It was a trip initiated by Nix, who had just learned that Mary had been diagnosed with a disease that would cut her life short and who was determined that it be the vacation of a lifetime. But by the time their visit to Greece was over, Nix had withdrawn from their friendship, and Mary had no idea why.Three years later, Nix is dead, and Mary returns to Europe to try to understand what went wrong. In the process she meets the first of many men that she will spend time with as she travels throughout the world. Through them she experiences not only a sexual awakening but a spiritual and emotional awakening that allows her to understand how the past and the future are connected and to appreciate the freedom to live life adventurously.

Part fact and part legend. Find out what life was like in the 13th century in the village of Hamelin which is in Saxony in what is now Germany. How did the citizens contend with a vermin invasion? How desparate were they to rid themselves of this investation.? What would they pay to have the rats illiminated?
Who was the Pied Piper? How did he learn his trade? Why was the price so high for this service?
Certainly, you're sad about the loss of the children, but who would you side with the townspeople or the Pied Piper? Buy it, read it, and listen to the author Adam M. Baig talk about this tale. Then you decide where your sympathies lie.

Patrick graduated with a BA in Broadcast Communications from Columbia College and has spent the last decade as a marketing professional in the publishing industry.

**OFFSITE** Chris Jones @ Harold Washington Library
, chief theater critic for the Chicago Tribune, discusses his recent book titled Bigger, Brighter, Louder
: 150 Years of Chicago Theater as Seen by Chicago Tribune Critics.
The first known Chicago Tribune theater review appeared on March 25, 1853. An anonymous notice, it shared the page with two other announcements--one about a pair of thousand-pound hogs set to be slaughtered and another trumpeting the largest load of lumber ever to leave Chicago. 'And thus Chicago's priorities were starkly laid out right there on that page,' begins Chris Jones in the introduction to this new collection. 'Hog butcher for the world and windy self-promoter, specializing in commerce-driven superlatives. The arts came a poor third. Critics would rail against that perceived set of civic priorities for years.' The Chicago of today, on the other hand, is regarded as one of the world's premier cities for theater, and no one has had a more consistent front-row seat to its ascendance than the Chicago Tribune theater critics. Bigger, Brighter, Louder weaves together more than 150 years of Tribune reviews into a compelling narrative, pairing full reviews with commentary and history. With a sharp eye for telling details and a keen sense of historical context, Jones takes readers through decades of highs and lows, successes and failures.Seating in the Cindy Pritzker Auditorium is available first come, first served, 385 max. Once capacity is reached, seating is no longer available. Books may be purchased and the author will sign books at the program's conclusion.
