    Please join our newest book club! This month's selection is "The Gods of Gotham" by Lyndsay Faye. Indulge in some tea and goodies while enjoying good conversation. In 1845, Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven" appeared in The New York Mirror; the New York Knickerbockers organized themselves into an official baseball club; and the New York City Police Dept. was established. There's nothing about Poe or the Knicks in Lyndsay Faye's rollicking historical novel, but she does offer a sensational account of what early police work was like for those untested and ill-trained "copper stars" who patrolled the city in 16-hour shifts, trying to keep members of the poipulace from robbing, swindling, thrashing, raping and murdering one another" (Marilyn Stasio New York Times Book Review) Registration is not required. The book is available for pick up at the library.

    The Lone Samurai: The Life of Musashi Miyamoto by William Scott Wilson Musashi is primarily known in the West as the author of The Book of Five Rings, a guide to swordsmanship strategies that became a essential business-strategy manual in the 1980s. Wilson, having translated Musashi's book into English, turns for the first time to biography, with as complete a life of the man behind the sword as possible, given his legendary stature and peripatetic, largely undocumented story. Musashi lived in the 17th century and had his first match at 13 with a shugyosha (an older, professional swordsman); only Musashi walked away alive. For three decades, he wandered feudal Japan, moving from patron to patron, taking on opponents in formal and informal matches, teaching others his art and sometimes taking part in clan and regional rivalries. He eventually settled in southern Japan, where his martial art skills led organically to visual art: simple-looking, highly disciplined ink-and-brush painting and calligraphy. Toward the end of his life, Musashi synthesized everything he'd learned into the literary work he is now best known for. Wilson integrates a considerable amount of Japanese history and culture into a short, dense book with lots of specialized information. Although Musashi doesn't become fully dimensional—and given the scarcity of primary source material, he probably can't—Wilson provides an extensive appendix of other materials that have depicted the legendary swordsman over the centuries.-Publisher’s Weekly Additional Film suggestion: Samurai Trilogy:Musashi Miyamoto Criterion Collection

    Rashomon and Seventeen Other Stories by Ryunosuke Akutagawa Ryunosuke Akutagawa (1892-1927) is one of Japan’s foremost stylists-a modernist master whose short stories are marked by highly original imagery, cynicism, beauty and wild humor. ‘Rashomon’ and the ‘Bamboo Grove’ inspired Kurosawa’s magnificent film and depict a past in which morality is turned upside down, while tales such as ‘the Nose‘, ‘O-Gin’, and ‘Loyalty’ paint a rich and imaginative picture of a medieval Japan peopled by Shoguns and priests, vagrants and peasants. – Amazon.
