In James Patterson's pulse-racing New York Times bestseller, violent animal attacks are destroying entire cities-and two unlikely heroes must save the world before it's too late. All over the world, brutal attacks are crippling entire cities. Jackson Oz, a young biologist, watches the escalating events with an increasing sense of dread. When he witnesses a coordinated lion ambush in Africa, the enormity of the violence to come becomes terrifyingly clear. With the help of ecologist Chloe Tousignant, Oz races to warn world leaders before it's too late. The attacks are growing in ferocity, cunning, and planning, and soon there will be no place left for humans to hide. For 36 years, James Patterson has written unputdownable, pulse-racing novels-and Zoo is the thriller he was born to write. With wildly inventive imagination and white-knuckle suspense that rivals Stephen King at his very best, Zoo is an epic, non-stop thrill-ride from "one of the best of the best" (Time).

This book offers a history of Coleridge's great Dejection poems, and presents the earliest manuscripts and earliest printed versions of these poems, along with the only known manuscript of another poem of Coleridge's, "The Day-Dream." In his introduction, Stephen Parrish traces the early development of the Dejection poems from their genesis in Coleridge's unhappy personal situation through the circumstances of their composition and revision. Reading texts of the recently discovered version of "Letter" and "The Day-Dream" are presented here for the first time, together with reading texts of a transitional version of "Letter," the October 1802 and 1817 published versions of "Dejection," and the only version of "The Day-Dream" published by Coleridge. The volume also contains photographs and transcripts of the principal manuscripts. Where appropriate, a record of variants is provided in the form of an apparatus.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., is one of the most famous pieces of civic architecture in the world. But most people are not as familiar with the reserved college student who entered and won the design competition to build it. This accessible biography tells the story of Maya Lin, from her struggle to stick with her vision of the memorial to the wide variety of works she has created since then. The carefully researched text, paired with ample photos, crosses multiple interests—American history, civic activism, art history, and cultural diversity—and offers a timely celebration of the memorial's 35th anniversary as well as providing an important contribution to the current discussion of the role of women and minorities in society.
