The North American Grasshoppers

World

Makes the user as confident of grasshopper identifications as he or she would be of bird identifications in using Peterson’s Field Guide to the Birds… For North American insect species, this book has no equal.Science

A beautifully produced book, profusely illustrated… The colour plates are so outstanding that, with some familiarity with the subfamily position, most species can be identified from the illustrations alone… The entire book will undoubtedly act as a spur to advance in the study of physiology, ecology and genetics within groups of related genera.—N.

Who We Might Have Been, and Who We Will Become

Who among us hasn’t considered what our lives would be like if we had taken alternate paths, made different decisions? Storytellers of every stripe write of the lives we didn’t have, says Andrew H. Miller, author of On Not Being Someone Else: Tales of Our Unled Lives. As we live through a worldwide pandemic, the ideas of what might have been are even more appealing. Much like the adolescents on the verge of adulthood in Sally Rooney’s novel Normal People, Miller tells us, we wait to see what comes next.
