Mr. Watts, singurul alb care nu a parasit comunitatea, decide sa fie profesor intr-o scoala mica, unicul text pe care il are la dispozitie fiind Marile sperante de Charles Dickens.Fascinata de lectura, Matilda accede la o noua lume in care fantezia incearca sa suplineasca realitatea dura traita pe insula. O lume care pare a se opune credintelor religioase solide impartasite de mama sa si care va crea un conflict intre cele doua. Din pacate insa, atat imaginatia fetei, cat si habotnicia mamei sunt spulberate de vocea distrugatoare a armelor care vor scalda comunitatea in sange.Peste ani, Matilda va descoperi ca faptele si oamenii pot fi masti ale unor adevaruri gaunoase.

Hornet Flight

Editura: New American Library

Anul aparitiei: 2007

Ken Follett and the intrigue of World War II--"a winning formula" (Entertainment Weekly) if ever there was one. With his riveting prose and unerring instinct for suspense, the #1 New York Times bestselling author takes to the skies over Europe during the early days of the war in a most extraordinary novel. . . . It is June 1941, and the war is not going well for England. Somehow, the Germans are anticipating the RAF's flight paths and shooting down British bombers with impunity. Meanwhile, across the North Sea, eighteen-year-old Harald Olufsen takes a shortcut on the German-occupied Danish island of Sande and discovers an astonishing sight. He doesn't know what it is, but he knows he must tell someone. And when he learns the truth, it will fall upon him to deliver word to England--except that he has no way to get there. He has only an old derelict Hornet Moth biplane rusting away in a ruined church--a plane so decrepit that it is unlikely to ever get off the ground . . . even if Harald knew how to fly it.

Benjamin Franklin

The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin

Editura: Yale Nota Bene

Anul aparitiei: 2003

A classic of eighteenth-century American history and literature, Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography has had an influence perhaps unequaled by any other book by an American writer. Written ostensibly as a letter to his son William, Franklin's Autobiography offers his reflections on philosophy and religion, politics, war, education, material success, and the status of women. Prepared by the editors of The Papers of Benjamin Franklin, this edition is drawn with scrupulous care from the original manuscript in Franklin's handwriting now in the Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery. The introduction by Leonard W. Labaree places the autobiography in literary and historical contexts. In a new foreword, Edmund S. Morgan writes about Franklin's dual allegiance as an American and a subject of an English king--and his emergence as a leader of the American Revolution. This edition also includes biographical notes, a chronology of Franklin's life, and an updated bibliography.

Life Stories: Profiles from the New Yorker

Editura: Modern Library

Anul aparitiei: 2001

One of art's purest challenges is to translate a human being into words. The New Yorker has met this challenge more successfully and more originally than any other modern American journal. It has indelibly shaped the genre known as the Profile. Starting with light-fantastic evocations of glamorous and idiosyncratic figures of the twenties and thirties, such as Henry Luce and Isadora Duncan, and continuing to the present, with complex pictures of such contemporaries as Mikhail Baryshnikov and Richard Pryor, this collection of New Yorker Profiles presents readers with a portrait gallery of some of the most prominent figures of the twentieth century. These Profiles are literary-journalistic investigations into character and accomplishment, motive and madness, beauty and ugliness, and are unrivalled in their range, their variety of style, and their embrace of humanity. Including these twenty-eight profiles: "Mr. Hunter's Grave" by Joseph Mitchell "Secrets of the Magus" by Mark Singer "Isadora" by Janet Flanner "The Soloist" by Joan Acocella "Time . . . Fortune . . . Life . . . Luce" by Walcott Gibbs "Nobody Better, Better Than Nobody" by Ian Frazier "The Mountains of Pi" by Richard ...
