Vintage Readers are a perfect introduction to some of the great modern writers presented in attractive, accessible paperback editions. “It is Dr. Sacks’s gift that he has found a way to enlarge our experience and understanding of what the human is.” —The Wall Street Journal Dubbed “the poet laureate of medicine” by The New York Times, Oliver Sacks is a practicing neurologist and a mesmerizing storyteller. His empathetic accounts of his patients’s lives—and wrily observed narratives of his own—convey both the extreme borderlands of human experience and the miracles of ordinary seeing, speaking, hearing, thinking, and feeling. Vintage Sacks includes the introduction and case study “Rose R.” from Awakenings (the book that inspired the Oscar-nominated movie), as well as “A Deaf World” from Seeing Voices; “The Visions of Hildegard” from Migraine; excerpts from “Island Hopping” and “Pingelap” from The Island of the Colorblind; “A Surgeon’s Life” from An Anthropologist on Mars; and two chapters from Sacks’s acclaimed memoir Uncle Tungsten. From the Trade Paperback edition.
2004 marks the tenth year of the Mildura Writers' Festival, an arts festival noted for its camaraderie, conviviality and hospitality. Writers, poets and cooks are all in attendance, and attend one another's sessions; they eat - or rather feast - together from breakfast to dinner and beyond; and they join in the festivities and conversations that make these days one long and lively celebration. "Vintage" captures between its covers a selection from festivals past, and the contributors will be well known to Australians. The works cross a wide range of genres: poems, stories, essays, memoirs, interviews, song lyrics and recipes. For the last several years, the festival has invited a guest chef to present a special dinner, and the recipes here are for some of the dishes they prepared at Mildura. The book is arranged into sections, each like a course or perhaps a meal in itself, in which the various flavours that compose the festival blend in their own distinct way. It is a book to take pleasure in, for its entertainment and provocation; its levity and intensity; its glittering surfaces and its deep thoughtfulness.
Set against the legendary background of the lush California vineyards, Vintage is a vibrant family saga with strong characters and swiftly moving action. In this drama of American growth from the late 1800's to 1970, filled with racial strife, political intrigue, social drama and a great love story, the Napa Valley takes on mythic significance. This special land becomes to the men and women who work here either a generous mother or a bitch goddess, and functions as a microcosm of the tensions, frustrations and ambitions of a growing America.
