Birchwood

Editura: Vintage Books USA

Anul aparitiei: 2007

An early classic from the Man Booker-prize winning author of "The Sea." "I am therefore I think." So starts John Banville's 1973 novel "Birchwood," a novel that centers around Gabriel Godkin and his return to his dilapidated family estate. After years away, Gabriel returns to a house filled with memories and despair. Delving deep into family secrets--a cold father, a tortured mother, an insane grandmother--Gabriel also recalls his first encounters with love and loss. At once a novel of a family, of isolation, and of a blighted Ireland, "Birchwood" is a remarkable and complex story about the end of innocence for one boy and his country, told in the brilliantly styled prose of one of our most essential writers.

Rachel and Her Children: Homeless Families in America

Editura: Three Rivers Press (CA)

Anul aparitiei: 2006

The story that jolted the conscience of the nation when it first appeared in "The New Yorker" Jonathan Kozol is one of America's most forceful and eloquent observers of the intersection of race, poverty, and education. His books, from the National Book Award-winning "Death at an Early Age" to his most recent, the critically acclaimed "Shame of the Nation," are touchstones of the national conscience. First published in 1988 and based on the months the author spent among America's homeless, "Rachel and Her Children" is an unforgettable record of the desperate voices of men, women, and especially children caught up in a nightmarish situation that tears at the hearts of readers. With record numbers of homeless children and adults flooding the nation's shelters, "Rachel and Her Children" offers a look at homelessness that resonates even louder today.

True Irish Ghost Stories: Haunted Houses, Banshees, Poltergeists, and Other Supernatural Phenomena

Editura: Dover Publications

Anul aparitiei: 2005

Poltergeists and banshees, spirit-filled houses, and deathbed scenes pervaded by specters fill this enchanting treasury of tales based on supernatural phenomenon. Compiled from Ireland s abundant reserve of ghost stories, this richly varied collection of legendary and ancestral phantoms, uncanny forewarnings of death, and a host of other unearthly experiences relies on the memories of ordinary Irish folk scattered throughout the isle. The collection of entertaining tales was the offspring of a newspaper article in which authors St. John D. Seymour, a Church of England priest, and his colleague, Harry L. Neligan, asked contributors to send in their favorite ghost stories, which many happily did. Classified by geographical area, the simple yet compelling narratives at once disarming, convincing, and illuminating provide amazing descriptions of paranormal experiences. An entertaining, authentic glimpse of late 19th- and early-20th-century Ireland and the superstitious natures of its people, True Irish Ghost Stories is a delightful treasury of other-worldly happenings to be shared by devotees of Irish lore, mystery lovers, and connoisseurs of the paranormal.

Ralph Waldo Ellison

Shadow and ACT

Editura: Vintage Books USA

Anul aparitiei: 1995

With the same intellectual incisiveness and supple, stylish prose he brought to his classic novel Invisible Man , Ralph Ellison examines his antecedents and in so doing illuminates the literature, music, and culture of both black and white America. His range is virtuosic, encompassing Mark Twain and Richard Wright, Mahalia Jackson and Charlie Parker, The Birth of a Nation and the Dante-esque landscape of Harlem--"the scene and symbol of the Negro's perpetual alienation in the land of his birth." Throughout, he gives us what amounts to an episodic autobiography that traces his formation as a writer as well as the genesis of Invisible Man. On every page, Ellison reveals his idiosyncratic and often contrarian brilliance, his insistence on refuting both black and white stereotypes of what an African American writer should say or be. The result is a book that continues to instruct, delight, and occasionally outrage readers.
