After The Fall. This Student Edition of After the Fall is perfect for students of literature and drama and offers an unrivalled and comprehensive guide to Miller's play. It features an extensive introduction by Brenda Murphy which includes a chronology of Miller's life and times, a summary of the plot and commentary on the characters, themes, language, context and production history of the play. Together with over twenty questions for further study and detailed notes on words and phrases from the text, this is the definitive edition of the play. After the Fall (1964) is embedded in historical events that were bound up with Arthur Miller's personal life. It is an intensely personal psychological study of its protagonist Quentin and a moral and philosophical commentary on the Holocaust, McCarthyism, and the career and death of Marilyn Monroe. The play marks the full realisation of Miller's modernist experimentation in trying to create a form that dramatises both human consciousness or subjectivity and its interrelationship with social and familial dynamics. A drama that takes place in the mind and thoughts of its protagonist, where memories are overshadowed by the Holocaust, the play is a moving study of human consciousness, morality and how we should live our lives once we have come to the realisation that we exist 'after the Fall'.

After The Fall. “That’s the thing about falling. It doesn’t go on indefinitely, and it rarely ends well . . . ” In her page-turning fiction debut, neuropsychologist Kylie Ladd delivers a searing portrait of two marriages united and betrayed by friendship. “I had been married three years when I fell in love,” begins Kate, a firecracker of a woman who thought she’d found the yin to her yang in Cary, her sensible and adoring husband. For their friend Luke—a charismatic copywriter who loves women and attention in equal measure, and preferably together—life has been more than sweet beside Cressida, the dutiful pediatric oncologist who stole his heart. But when a whimsical flirtation between Kate and Luke turns into something far more dangerous, the foursome will be irrevocably intertwined by more than just their shared history. After the Fall follows the origin and fallout of the most passionate of affairs through the eyes of all four characters, unveiling the misunderstandings and unspoken needs that lie beneath our search for love and connection. The narrative moves effortlessly between past and present, painting a nostalgic picture of the two marriages at their most idealistic—the exact moment when like turned to love—and at their most volatile. Thanks to the boundless compassion with which Ladd draws her characters, one can’t help but root for them as they wrestle between newfound desire and remembrances of time past, all the while spinning toward an inevitable conclusion. Steeped in psychological insight and raw emotion, After the Fall is an unsettling novel of the many ways we love and hurt each other. From the Hardcover edition.

After The Fall. Published to mark the tenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, After the Fall is a landmark oral history drawn from the celebrated collection of 9/11 interviews at Columbia University. Within days of 9/11, Columbia’s Oral History Research Office deployed interviewers across the city to begin collecting the accounts and observations of hundreds of people from a diverse mix of New York neighborhoods and backgrounds. Over subsequent months and years, follow-up interviews produced a deep and revealing look at how the attacks changed individual lives and communities in New York City. After the Fall presents a selection of these fascinating testimonies, with heartbreaking and enlightening stories from a broad range of New Yorkers. The interviews include first-responders, taxi drivers, school teachers, artists, religious leaders, immigrants, and others who were interviewed at intervals since the 2001 attacks. The result is a remarkable time-lapse account of the city as it changed in the wake of 9/11, one that will resonate powerfully with New Yorkers and millions of others who continue to feel the impact of the most damaging attack on American soil in history.

After The Fall. Seventeen-year-old Raychel is sleeping with two boys: her overachieving best friend Matt...and his slacker brother, Andrew. Raychel sneaks into Matt’s bed after nightmares, but nothing ever happens. He doesn’t even seem to realize she’s a girl, except when he decides she needs rescuing. But Raychel doesn't want to be his girl anyway. She just needs his support as she deals with the classmate who assaulted her, the constant threat of her family’s eviction, and the dream of college slipping quickly out of reach. Matt tries to help, but he doesn’t really get it... and he’d never understand why she’s fallen into a secret relationship with his brother. The friendships are a precarious balance, and when tragedy strikes, everything falls apart. Raychel has to decide which pieces she can pick up – and which ones are worth putting back together.

After The Fall. Praise for After The Fall "Steve Bergsman provides his readers with one of the most comprehensive, yet concise overviews of real estate and all its property types."—Christopher Macke, Vice President, GE Real Estate "This is an extraordinary work of detailed research and compelling writing. I've never seen the subject presented in such a cogent and skillful manner."—Phil Hall, editor, Secondary Marketing Executive "The way out of the financial crash of 2007/2008 will come through skilled operations, astute investing, and the ability of real estate practitioners to give up their mental memory of the future! The heated success of ten-year, unprecedented growth in the real estate industry has somehow atrophied the industry's application of knowledge. What we need is a fresh look at opportunities and strategies for real estate investing. We are lucky that Bergsman's book has fit the bill—just in time."—Jack M. Cohen, CEO, Cohen Financial "Insightful and informative; connects all the dots, providing the basis and foundation for making strategic decisions about real estate."—Stephen Blank, Senior Fellow, Finance, The Urban Land Institute

Vanquished Heroes After The Fall. The Quorum had promised to restore order, but at what cost really? Sure, the anarchy of the Fall had been swept away. The famine and subsequent plague that had killed so many had been dealt with in short order. However, the price of allowing the Quorum to rebuild was high. All remaining governments had to swear fealty to the Quorum or be forcibly disbanded. After that, any bastion of order that might have been able to oppose their rule was squashed.First it was the temples and then it was the trade guilds. The mage colleges were enslaved or obliterated. Eventually organized crime became a target. Not for the obvious reason of being criminal but because they were organized. There were some that believed the Quorum actually engineered the Fall so that they could swoop in and become the heralded saviors of civilization.

After The Fall A Novel. "This is a wonderful, forever book." —George Booth, cartoonist for The New Yorker After the Fall introduces us to a brilliantly eccentric family from New York’s Upper East Side. Pops, a self-made millionaire, is a mad inventor who gleans his inspiration from popovers and Raquel Welsh. Mother is a fabulously dressed but mercurial socialite from Buenos Aires whose weapon of choice is a croquet mallet. Young Alan, our earnest and studious narrator, and his drama-queen little sister, Alex, love their parents but must turn to their good-natured housekeeper and cook for a better sense of reality. One fateful day, Alan returns home to find that the family has gone bust, not even a penny to be found. The next morning, to the children’s surprise, the family wakes up in Central Park along with the entire contents of their penthouse arranged just as before—art, furniture, pugs, and all. Aided by their two loyal housekeepers and fed by the maitre d’ from their favorite restaurant, the family makes Central Park into a comfortable and creative home. But soon the strains of life—and the weather, which is getting chilly—threaten to tear apart the parents’ marriage. As the holiday season approaches, the children rise to the challenge of bringing their family back together. With more than two hundred drawings and featuring kimono-clad squirrels and a visit by a Yeti, this delicious tale is a love letter to family, creativity, and New York.
