From the Big Bang to the End of Time — The Elements Come Alive in New York Times Bestseller

THE DISAPPEARING SPOON THE DISAPPEARING SPOON : AND OTHER TRUE TALES OF MADNESS, LOVE... SAM KEAN Now in international B‐format. THE DISAPPEARING SPOON is the story of human history and the universe as told by each element of the periodic table—from King Midas to Marie Curie, and from Lewis and Clark to Dante and Twain. In THE DISAPPEARING SPOON, Sam Kean discovers the hidden tales and quirky details that show us how the elements relate to history, finance, alchemy, mythology, petty politics, poison, crime, war, the arts, and even love.

JULY 2011 INT'L B, $10.99 978‐0‐316‐18534‐9 Carton Qty. 20(T) Science Back Bay Open Market

Sam Kean' s work has appeared in the New York Times, Slate, Air & Space/Smithsonian, and New Scientist. In 2009 he was a runner‐up for the National Association of Science Writers' Evert Clark/Seth Payne Award for best science writer under the age of thirty.

The periodic table is one of mankind's greatest intellectual acheievements, and every element has a story. King Midas may just have been a Bronze Age entrepreneur. Marie Curie used to provoke jealousy in colleagues' wives when she'd invite them into closets to see her glow‐in‐the‐dark experiments. Lewis and Clark swallowed mercury capsules across the country and their campsites are still detectable by the poison in the ground. Often funny, often dramatic, and always illuminating, THE DISAPPEARING SPOON reveals anecdotes about familiar elements like chlorine and carbon and ferrets out great tales about the more obscure elements buried in the nether regions of the table and the brilliant, passionate, and sometimes mad scientists who discovered them. From the Big Bang to the end of time, it's all in here. Chemistry class has never been such fun.

Originally published in 1993, TONY AND SUSAN is a brilliant and chilling novel of marriage and murder. It is also a lost masterpiece of American fiction about reading and writing, fear and regret, blood and revenge. Fifteen years ago, Susan Morrow left her first husband, an unpublished writer. Now, she's enduring suburbia as a doctor's wife when she receives a manuscript of her ex‐husband's first novel. As we read with her, we too become lost in the thriller. As the plot thickens, Susan is plunged back into the past, forced to confront the darkness that inhabits her, and driven to name the fear that will change her life.

When veterinarian Helena Colden dies, her need for closure forces her to confront what it means to be 'human' as she observes her shattered husband struggling to care for her menagerie of animals. David, a successful Manhattan attorney, has lost the only connection that made his life full. The animals, are also struggling with the loss of Helena, and David must do what he can to fill the void of their protector. That's when he finds himself in a legal struggle over the last of Helena's projects, a chimpanzee that may hold the key to unlocking the mysteries of animal consciousness.
