Capote´s previously lost and unpublished tale ´´Yachts and Things´´ was recently discovered by Vanity Fair contributing editor Sam Kasher in the Manuscripts and Archives Division of the New York Public Library. Written at the height of his career and socialite life, this short, thinly-veiled work of fiction tells the story of two friends about to take an ´´idyllic three-week cruise in the Mediterranean aboard a friend´s chartered yacht´´. 1.

´´Once I picked it up I did not put it down until I finished. . . . What Schwed has done is capture fully-in deceptively clean language-the lunacy at the heart of the investment business.´´ -From the Foreword by Michael Lewis, Bestselling author of Liar´s Poker ´´. . . one of the funniest books ever written about Wall Street.´´ -Jane Bryant Quinn, The Washington Post ´´How great to have a reissue of a hilarious classic that proves the more things change the more they stay the same. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.´´ -Michael Bloomberg ´´It´s amazing how well Schwed´s book is holding up after fifty-five years. About the only thing that´s changed on Wall Street is that computers have replaced pencils and graph paper. Otherwise, the basics are the same. The investor´s need to believe somebody is matched by the financial advisor´s need to make a nice living. If one of them has to be disappointed, it´s bound to be the former.´´ -John Rothchild, Author, A Fool and His Money, Financial Columnist, Time magazine
Black Knight: Sarah Weston was doing well for herself. She had a good career and she had survived two years of marriage that had not been all bad, but had simply petered out. She had moved on. Then one day she met someone, someone who knew things about her that she had not even confessed to herself. He had plans for her, but first he would seduce her. Her Black Knight would take Sarah on a path into sensuality and surrender that would turn her inside out. The Yacht: My tummy felt full of tiny butterflies as the uniformed pilot came down the steps to take my bag. He helped me into the cabin of the executive plane and settled me into a leather seat before going forward. Neither he nor the limousine driver would tell me anything about Sir John or Jude. All I could think of on the plane as I sipped a glass of cold white wine, was my life had not been the same since our casual meeting at a conference. My work career had become boring interludes between seeing Sir John. Yet this was only my third visit in more than a month, the only passenger on a luxury private jet to the Balearics. The tingling sensation of the jewel in my navel was a constant reminder of other, deeper sensations I had experienced. Those thoughts made me grow wet imagining what might lie ahead. The jet flew me to the Mediterranean to arrive two hours later in Palma; taxiing to the executive terminal in one corner of the airport. The taxi driver at Palma was no more helpful. He shrugged at my questions and drove me at ridiculous speeds through dark scenery and night time postcard villages to my destination. The glittering marina was on the eastern side of the island, the sign in the headlights said ´Cala Longa´. The taxi drove slowly past impressive motor launches and yachts, from ten metre luxury boats, to some monsters more than thirty five metres long, moving gently at their moorings. Ooh there´s a big mirror!´´ Your tone was that of a naughty young girl and made me want to have you 1. Language: English. Narrator: Essemoh Teepee.

In the weird glow of the dying millennium, Michael Lewis sets out on a safari through Silicon Valley to find the world´s most important technology entrepreneur, the man who embodies the spirit of the coming age. He finds him in Jim Clark, who is about to create his third, separate, billion-dollar company: first Silicon Graphics, then Netscape - which launched the Information Age - and now Healtheon, a startup that may turn the $1 trillion healthcare industry on its head. Despite the variety of his achievements, Clark thinks of himself mainly as the creator of Hyperion, which happens to be a sailboat - not just an ordinary yacht, but the world´s largest single-mast vessel, a machine more complex than a 747. Clark claims he will be able to sail it via computer from his desk in San Francisco, and the new code may contain the seeds of his next billion-dollar coup. On the wings of Lewis´ celebrated storytelling, the listener takes the ride of a lifetime through this strange landscape of geeks and billionaires. We get the inside story of the battle between Netscape and Microsoft; we sit in the room as Clark tries to persuade the investment bankers that Healtheon IS the new Microsoft; we get queasy as Clark pits his boat against the rage of the North Atlantic in winter. And in every brilliant anecdote and character sketch, Lewis is drawing us a map of markets and free enterprise in the 21st century. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bruce Reizen.
