2017 Readers’ Favorite Gold Medal for New Adult Fiction 2017 New York City Big Book Award Winner Women’s Fiction 2017 IAN Book of the Year Award for Outstanding Women’s Fiction For readers who love Adriana Trigiani, Jennifer Weiner and Liane Moriarty, Forks, Knives, and Spoons is a light-hearted, thought-provoking coming of age story that takes readers on a nostalgic journey back to the 1980s and 1990s. Romantic, witty and warm. There are three kinds of guys: forks, knives, and spoons. That is the final lesson that Amy York’s father sends her off to college with, never suspecting just how far his daughter will take it. Clinging to the Utensil Classification System as her guide, Amy tries to convince her skeptical roommate, Veronica Warren, of its usefulness as they navigate the heartbreaks and soul mates of college and beyond. Beginning in 1988, their freshman year at Syracuse University, Amy and Veronica meet an assortment of guys—from slotted spoons and shrimp forks to butter knives and sporks—all while trying to learn if the UCS holds true. On the quest to find their perfect steak knives, they learn to believe in themselves—and not to settle in love or life.

This carefully crafted ebook: “The Complete Rougon-Macquart Cycle (All 20 Unabridged Novels in one volume)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Les Rougon-Macquart is the collective title given to a cycle of twenty novels by French writer Émile Zola. Subtitled Histoire naturelle et sociale d'une famille sous le Second Empire (Natural and social history of a family under the Second Empire), it follows the life of a fictional family living during the Second French Empire (1852–1870) and is an example of French naturalism. Table of Contents: 1.La Fortune des Rougon (1871) 2.La Curée (1871-2) 3.Le Ventre de Paris (1873) 4.La Conquête de Plassans (1874) 5.La Faute de l'Abbé Mouret (1875) 6.Son Excellence Eugène Rougon (1876) 7.L'Assommoir (1877) 8.Une Page d'amour (1878) 9.Nana (1880) 10.Pot-Bouille (1882) 11.Au Bonheur des Dames (1883) 12.La Joie de vivre (1884) 13.Germinal (1885) 14.L'Œuvre (1886) 15.La Terre (1887) 16.Le Rêve (1888) 17.La Bête humaine (1890) 18.L'Argent (1891) 19.La Débâcle (1892) 20.Le Docteur Pascal (1893) The series began with La Fortune des Rougon (The Fortune of the Rougons), which introduces the Rougons and the Macquarts. Zola examines the impact of environment by varying the social, economic, and professional milieu in which each novel takes place. La Curée (The Kill) explores the land speculation and financial dealings that accompanied the renovation of Paris during the Second Empire. Le Ventre de Paris (Savage Paris; also translated as The Fat and the Thin) examines the structure of the Halles, the vast central marketplace of Paris. Son Excellence Eugène Rougon (His Excellency Eugène Rougon) traces the machinations and maneuverings of cabinet officials in Napoleon III’s government. L’Assommoir ( Drunkard) shows the effects of alcoholism in a working-class neighbourhood by focusing on the rise and decline of a laundress, Gervaise Macquart. Nana follows the life of Gervaise’s daughter as her economic circumstances and hereditary penchants lead her to a career as an actress, then a courtesan. Au Bonheur des dames (Ladies’ Delight) depicts the mechanisms of a new economic entity, the department store, and its impact on smaller merchants. Germinal depicts life in a mining community by highlighting relations between the bourgeoisie and the working class. A quite different work, L’Oeuvre (The Masterpiece), explores the milieu of the art world and the relationships among the arts through an examination of the friendship between an Impressionist painter, Claude Lantier, and a naturalist novelist, Pierre Sandoz. In La Terre (Earth) Zola depicts what he considered to be the sordid lust for land among the French peasantry. In La Bête humaine (The Human Beast) he analyzes the hereditary urge to kill that haunts the Lantier branch of the family. La Débâcle (The Debacle) traces both the defeat of the French army by the Germans at the Battle of Sedan in 1870 and the anarchist uprising of the Paris Commune. Finally, in Le Docteur Pascal (Doctor Pascal) he uses the main character, the doctor Pascal Rougon, armed with a genealogical tree of the Rougon-Macquart family published with the novel, to expound the theories of heredity underlying the entire series. Émile Zola (1840 – 1902), French novelist, critic, and political activist who was the most prominent French novelist of the late 19th century. He was noted for his theories of naturalism, which underlie his monumental 20-novel series Les Rougon-Macquart, and for his intervention in the Dreyfus Affair through his famous open letter, “J’accuse.”
