This family saga from a National Book Award finalist is a “brilliantly orchestrated tale of several generations of Washington, D.C., insiders” (Booklist). In this epic and acutely observed novel, three generations of a family of Washington power brokers vie for influence over the fate of the nation. In the 1930s, Sen. Adolph Behl and his wife, Constance, buy historic mansion Echo House with the vision of transforming it into Washington’s greatest salon—an auspicious base camp from which the senator can launch his “final ascent,” and son Axel can prepare his first. Across decades of secrets, betrayals, victories, and humiliations, the Behl family will fight to remain near the center, and behind the scenes, of American political power—from the New Deal to Watergate and beyond. “A fascinating if ultimately painful fairy tale, complete with . . . a family curse . . . The decline of the Behls represents the decline of Washington from the bright dawn of the American century into the gathering shadows of an alien new millennium.” —The Washington Post “Puts the standard run-of-the-mill Washington novel to shame . . . It is Mr. Just’s intimate portrait of the city that makes his book so convincing.” —TheNew York Times “Will be read in a century’s time by anyone seeking to understand how we lived.” —Detroit Free Press “[Ward’s] stories put him in the category reserved for writers who work far beyond the fashions of the times. . . . Masterpieces of balance, focus, and hidden order.” —Chicago Tribune “He has earned a place on the shelf just below Edith Wharton and Henry James.” —Newsweek

From beloved author, director, and actress, Amber Benson... Unbeknownst to most of humankind, a powerful network of witches thrives within the shadows of society, using their magic to keep the world in balance. But they are being eliminated—and we will all pay if their power falls… When Elyse MacAllister’s great-aunt Eleanora, the woman who raised her, becomes deathly ill, Lyse puts her comfortable life in Georgia on hold to rush back to Los Angeles. And once she returns to Echo Park, Lyse discovers her great-aunt has been keeping secrets—extraordinary secrets—from her. Not only is Lyse heir to Eleanora’s Victorian estate; she is also expected to take her great-aunt’s place in the Echo Park coven of witches. But to accept her destiny means to place herself in deadly peril—for the world of magic is under siege, and the battle the witches now fight may be their last…

This important new book on granny flats--mobile, one or two person living units, separate from the main residence but connected to the main house utilities--reveals the most recent approach to housing for the elderly. As the percentage of the population over age sixty-five steadily rises, granny flat programs will become an increasingly popular option for fairly independent, healthy, and mobile older adults who have difficulty maintaining a larger home but wish to avoid the restriction and expense of institutions. This landmark book outlines the history of the development of granny flat programs in Australia, New Zealand, England, the United States, and Canada and presents, for the first time, the important information needed to aid in saving time, money, and effort in the development of the granny flat as a viable housing option for elderly persons. As the success of granny flats depends on the interaction of several sectors of society, this groundbreaking book provides valuable policy planning information and will be necessary reading for social workers, gerontologists, government departments concerned with housing, homebuilders and developers, urban/rural planners, and geographers. Topics of interest and benefits that are discussed include the role of the private sector through provision of portable housing, the need for an increase in community-based services for the elderly, the need for the creation of local, regional, and state government policy on granny flats, the maintenance of quality of life and independence for elderly persons, and most importantly, critical factors for increasing success in the implementation of future granny flat programs.
