A mesmerizing tale of art and passion in Belle Époque France
As a woman, aspiring sculptor Camille Claudel has plenty of critics, especially her ultra-traditional mother. But when Auguste Rodin makes Camille his apprentice—and his muse—their passion inspires groundbreaking works. Yet, Camille’s success is overshadowed by her lover’s rising star, and her obsessions cross the line into madness.
Rodin’s Lover brings to life the volatile love affair between one of the era’s greatest artists and a woman entwined in a tragic dilemma she cannot escape.
THE AFFLUENT SOCIETY
Galbraith’s classic on the “economics of abundance” is, in the words of the New York Times, “a compelling challenge to conventional thought.” With customary clarity, eloquence, and humor, Galbraith cuts to the heart of what economic security means (and doesn’t mean) in today’s world and lays bare the hazards of individual and societal complacence about economic inequity. While “affluent society” and “conventional wisdom” (first used in this book) have entered the vernacular, the message of the book has not been so widely embraced–reason enough to rediscover “The Affluent Society.”
