Julian Barnes, author of the Man Booker Prize-winning novel The Sense of an Ending, gives us his most powerfully moving book yet, beginning in the nineteenth century and leading seamlessly into an entirely personal account of loss--making "Levels of Life "an immediate classic on the subject of grief. "Levels of Life" is a book about ballooning, photography, love and loss; about putting two things, and two people, together, and about tearing them apart. One of the judges who awarded Barnes the 2011 Booker Prize described him as "an unparalleled magus of the heart." This book confirms that opinion. "Spare and beautiful...a book of rare intimacy and honesty about love and grief. To read it is a privilege. To have written it is astonishing." --Ruth Scurr, "The Times of London" "A remarkable narrative that is as raw in its emotion as it is characteristically elegant in its execution." --Eileen Battersby, "The Irish Times"

Space Coalition blog by Leonard David http://www.spacecoalition.com/blog/index.cfm/2009/4/22/Review%20-%20Remembering%20the%20Space%20Age posted April 22, 2009 5:24pm "This is a superb collection of papers, drawn from a co-convened NASA History Division and National Aire and Space Museum Space History Division conference on October 22-23, 2007. As the editor, Steven Dick, NASA's Chief Historican suggests, the reader will find this volume full of thought-provoking ideas, views, and speculative reasoning. The book itself is divided into three parts: National and Global Dimensions of the Space A'¥ Remembrance and Cultural Representation of the Space A'¥ and Reflections of the Space Age. This look back in time will give the reader a much better foothold on the decades ahead -- and a tool to help gauge -and balance --vision and reality."
