M. de Saint-Trophze had raised his aristocratic eyebrows, and tried to wither the audacious malapert with his scornful glance, but the little Man in Grey appeared quite unconscious of the enormity of his offence; he stood by -- as was his wont -- quietly and silently, his eyes fixed inquiringly on the prifet, who was indeed hoping that the floor would open conveniently and swallow him up ere he was called upon to decide whether he should obey the orders of his official chief, or pay heed to the commands of the accredited agent of M. the Minister of Police.

Not illustrated. 1918 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER II THE SPANIARD I The man with the wooden leg was still at large, and M. le Procureur Imperial had died a hero's death whilst helping to capture a gang of desperate Chouans in the Cache-Renard woods. This was the public version of the tragic epilogue to those three mysteries, which had puzzled and terrified the countryside during the early days of October, 1809--the robbery of the mail-coach, the burglary in the Palace of Monseigneur the Constitutional Bishop of Alencon, and the murder of Mme. Marquise de Plelan's valet, Maxence. The intelligent section of the public was loud in its condemnation of the ineptitude displayed by the police in the matter of those abominable crimes, and chief commissary Lefevre, bound by oath--not to say terror --to hold his tongue as to the real facts of the case, grumbled in his beard and muttered curses on the accredited representative of the Minister of Police--ay, and on M. le Due d'Otrante himself. On top of all the public unrest and dissatisfaction came the outrage at the house of M. de Kerblay, a noted advocate of the Paris bar and member of the Senate, who owned a small property in the neighbourhood of Alengon, where he spent a couple of months every year with his wife and family, entertaining a few friends during the shooting season. In the morning of November the 6th, the neighbourhood was horrified to hear that on the previous night, shortly after ten o'clock, a party of those ruffianly Chouans had made a descent on M. de Kerblay's house, Les Ormeaux. They had demanded admittance in the name of the law. All the servants had gone to bed with the exception of Hector, M. de Kerblay's valet, and he was so scared that he allowed the scelcrats to push their way into the house, before he had...

Jon-Jon Goulian is a very complex man. He was blessed with a privileged and liberal upbringing - his father a doctor, his mother a lawyer and his grandfather the renowned pragmatic philosopher Sidney Hook.

Jon-Jon has spent his late teens, twenties and thirties somewhat adrift - in and out of employment and generally confusing all those who met him. THE MAN IN THE GRAY FLANNEL SKIRT is a riveting account of a very intelligent man growing up left of centre, trying to work out who he is and where he fits, both personally and privately.

Universally acclaimed when first published in 1955, The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit captured the mood of a generation. Its title — like Catch-22 and Fahrenheit 451 — has become a part of America's cultural vocabulary. Tom Rath doesn't want anything extraordinary out of life: just a decent home, enough money to support his family, and a career that won't crush his spirit. After returning from World War II, he takes a PR job at a television network. It is inane, dehumanizing work. But when a series of personal crises force him to reexamine his priorities — and take responsibility for his past — he is finally moved to carve out an identity for himself. This is Sloan Wilson's searing indictment of a society that had just begun to lose touch with its citizens. The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit is a classic of American literature and the basis of the award-winning film starring Gregory Peck. "A consequential novel." — Saturday Review

The fireflies on the Virginia hills were blinking in the dark places beneath the trees and a katydid was singing in the rosebush beside the portico at Arlington. The stars began to twinkle in the serene sky. The lights of Washington flickered across the river. The Capitol building gleamed, argus-eyed on the hill. Congress was in session, still wrangling over the question of Slavery and its extension into the territories of the West. The laughter of youth and beauty sifted down from open windows. Preparations were being hurried for the ball in honor of the departing cadets - Custis Lee, his classmate, Jeb Stuart, and little Phil Sheridan of Ohio whom they had invited in from Washington.

Man in a Grey Suit

One twilight, Glenn Orgias was surfing at Bondi Beach when the worst happened: he was attacked by a shark, a 'man in a grey suit', as surfers call them. Although it suddenly released him, Glenn still thought his life was over – he was 80 metres from shore with one almost severed arm, losing blood and strength fast, and the great white shark was somewhere below. All he could think about was his wife, Lisa, who was four months pregnant. Man in a Grey Suit is a powerful memoir about overcoming life's obstacles, large and small. It's the story of how surfing helped Glenn find some release from the anger and anxiety he felt growing up, and how something that so nearly killed him actually helped turn his life around. This is a brave, honest and moving account of how an ordinary man dealt with an extraordinary event. 'He frankly and fiercely taps into Australians' deepest fear.' Robert Drewe 'Sometimes we all wonder if we could cope with the worst that life could throw at us. Glenn Orgias has been there, and has come through. His strength of character lies not in what he lost, but in what he's always had.' Malcolm Knox 'In crisp, punchy prose, he shows us why his life is fuller now than before.' Fiona Capp, The Age 'This moving and utterly gripping true story is a testament to the bravery and guts that human beings can display when truly pushed to the brink.' Herald Sun
