Writer and artist Susan Eaton Mendenhall realizes that she has been defined by the places she has lived. Her various homes have each set her on a path to discover something about herself, none more so than the house she named Simplicity. Mendenhall and her husband, Don, were newly married when they moved into the century-old American Foursquare that had recently been converted back into a single home after serving as apartments for a number of years. The house needed attention and care; it was aching to be restored to its original purpose—a place to support the hopes and dreams of a family, a place to be someone's home. This collection of personal stories is about a house that supported the Mendenhalls in their quest to find home by presenting abundant opportunities for growth and enrichment. The house named Simplicity was wise beyond its years, and it became a teacher and partner to the Mendenhalls as they explored their changing lives together, developing over time an intimacy with the spaces of Simplicity that made the house a true home. As readers enter Simplicity’s rooms and stories, they are given the opportunity to discover more about their relationship with the places they call home.

Russian Music at Home and Abroad

This new collection views Russian music through the Greek triad ofÊÒthe Good, the True, and the BeautifulÓ to investigateÊhow the idea of "nation" embeds itself in the public discourse about music and other arts with results at times invigorating, at times corrupting. In our divided, postÐCold War, and now postÐ9/11 world, Russian music, formerly a quiet corner on the margins of musicology, has become a site of noisy contention. Richard Taruskin assesses the political and cultural stakes that attach to it in the era of Pussy Riot and renewed international tensions, before turning to individual cases from the nineteenth century to the present. Much ofÊthe volume is devoted to the resolutely cosmopolitan but inveterately Russian Igor Stravinsky, one of the major forces in the music of the twentieth century and subject of particular interest to composers and music theorists all over the world. Taruskin here revisits him for the first time since the 1990s, when everything changed for Russia and its cultural products. Other essays are devoted to the cultural and social policies of the Soviet Union and their effect on the music produced there as those policies swung away from Communist internationalism to traditional Russian nationalism; to the musicians of the Russian postrevolutionary diaspora; andÊto the tension between the compelling artistic quality of works such as StravinskyÕs Sacre du Printemps or ProkofieffÕs Zdravitsa and the antihumanistic or totalitarian messages they convey. Russian Music at Home and Abroad addresses these concerns in a personal and critical way, characteristically demonstrating TaruskinÕs authority and ability toÊbring living history out of the shadows.

"The Adventures of Jimmie Dale" – Jimmie Dale is a wealthy playboy by day, but at night he puts on a costume and becomes The Gray Seal, who enters businesses or homes and cracks safes, always leaving a diamond shaped, gray paper "seal" behind to mark his conquest, but never taking anything and just doing it for "the sheer deviltry of it". But he gets caught by a mysterious woman he calls The Tocsin, and she blackmails him to help her in the war with certain crime organizations. "The Further Adventures of Jimmie Dale" – Jimmie Dale wanted to settle with the love of his life, but when she disappears, he is pulled back into the New York's underworld of crooks and crime. "Jimmie Dale and the Phantom Clue" – Jimmie Dale is back in the underworld of New York, and he is destined to find the criminal known as the Phantom, in order to save the woman he loves. "Jimmie Dale and Blue Envelope Murder" – Jimmie Dale tries to protect his friend who received a threat in the form of a mysterious blue envelope, but when the friend is found dead, Jimmie is accused of the murder. To clear himself, Jimmie must resolve the envelope's mystery and find out who stands behind the murder, and he must do it while avoiding the police and his old enemies from the underworld. Frank Lucius Packard (1877-1942) was a Canadian novelist best known for his Jimmie Dale mystery series. The character Jimmie Dale is a wealthy playboy by day and a fearless crime fighter by night. Jimmie Dale novels brought the idea of a costume and mask for hero's secret identity, and also established the concept of a hero's secret hideout or lair.
