Coupland, Douglas

Player One

Cornerstone Digital, 20101031

Abstract: A real-time five-hour story set in an airport cocktail lounge during a global disaster. Five disparate people are trapped inside: Karen, a single mother waiting for her online date; Rick, the down-on-his-luck airport lounge bartender; Luke, a pastor on the run; Rachel, a cool Hitchcock blonde incapable of true human contact; and finally a mysterious voice known as Player One. Slowly, each reveals the truth about themselves while the world as they know it comes to an end.In the tradition of Kurt Vonnegut and J.G. Ballard, Coupland explores the modern crises of time, human identity, society, religion and the afterlife. The book asks as many questions as it answers and readers will leave the story with no doubt that we are in a new phase of existence as a species - and that there is no turning back.

Munro, Alice

Runaway

Vintage, 20131021

Abstract: **Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature**The matchless Munro makes art out of everyday lives in this exquisite short story collection. Here are men and women of wildly different times and circumstances, their lives made vividly palpable by the nuance and empathy of Munro's writing. Runaway is about the power and betrayals of love, about lost children, lost chances. There is pain and desolation beneath the surface, like a needle in the heart, which makes these stories more powerful and compelling than anything she has written before.Winner of the Man Booker International Prize 2009.

Painted House

Cornerstone Digital, 20100421

Abstract: _______________________________________The hill people and the Mexicans arrived on the same day. It was a Wednesday, early in September 1952. The Cardinals were five games behind the Dodgers with two weeks to go, and the season looked hopeless. The cotton, however, was waist high to my father, almost over my head, and he and my grandfather could be heard before supper whispering words that were seldom heard. It could be a &quote;good crop.&quote; In rural Arkansas, seven-year-old farm boy Luke Chandler lives in the cotton fields with his parents and grandparents in a little house that's never been painted. The Chandlers farm eighty acres that they rent, not own, and when the cotton is ready they hire a truckload of Mexicans and a family from the Ozarks to help harvest it. For six weeks they pick cotton, battling the heat, the rain, the fatigue, and sometimes each other. As the weeks pass Luke sees and hears things no seven-year-old could possibly be prepared for, and finds himself keeping secrets that not only threaten the crop but will change the lives of the Chandlers forever.A Painted House is a moving story of one boy's journey from innocence to experience, drawn from the personal experience of legendary legal thriller author John Grisham._______________________________________ A master at the art of deft characterisation and the skilful delivery of hair-raising crescendos' Irish Independent'John Grisham is the master of legal fiction' Jodi Picoult'The best thriller writer alive' Ken Follett John Grisham has perfected the art of cooking up convincing, fast-paced thrillers Telegraph Grisham is a superb, instinctive storyteller The Times Grisham's storytelling genius reminds us that when it comes to legal drama, the master is in a league of his own.

Toews, Miriam

Swing Low

Faber & Faber, 20130820

Abstract: One morning Mel Toews put on his coat and hat and walked out of town, prepared to die. A loving husband and father, faithful member of the Mennonite church, and immensely popular schoolteacher, he was a pillar of his close-knit community. Yet after a lifetime of struggle, he could no longer face the darkness of manic depression. With razor-sharp precision,Swing Low tells his story in his own voice, taking us deep inside the experience of despair. But it is also a funny, winsome evocation of country life: growing up on farm, courting a wife, becoming a teacher, and rearing a happy, strong family in the midst of private torment. A humane, inspiring story of a remarkable man, father, and teacher.

L'abbaglio / Francesca Violi

Roma : Elliot, 2022

Abstract: Melissa lavora all'asilo nel bosco della Fonte, centro olistico fondato da Veronica, sua maestra e modello. Il carisma della donna ha spinto Melissa a sposarne la visione del mondo, tanto che quando il padre si ammala di cancro lo convince ad affidarsi alle cure di un medico alternativo. Ma il padre muore. Melissa prova a negare la realtà finché non è costretta ad ammettere il tragico abbaglio di cui è stata vittima, ed è travolta dalla colpa, dal crollo dei valori in cui ha creduto, e soprattutto dal tradimento di Veronica, che ritiene responsabile ultima. Da quel momento le sue azioni diventano mirate a una sottile quanto violenta vendetta, che trasforma l'atmosfera del romanzo in un cupo noir in cui carnefici e vittime sono ruoli che man mano si adattano ai vari personaggi, prigionieri di una storia di auto-inganni. Attraverso un abile gioco di specchi condotto dall'autrice assistiamo alla metamorfosi della protagonista: da manipolata a manipolatrice, Melissa dovrà fare i conti con le proprie emozioni più oscure, che la porteranno a contemplare e ad abbracciare il male trovando sempre una forma di giustificazione morale per le proprie azioni.

Abstract: È l'estate del 1954, Giacomo Nef ha undici anni e con i due fratelli maggiori vive dai nonni paterni a Daghè, sulle pendici del Col di Lana, nelle Dolomiti bellunesi. Tre case, tre fienili, tre famiglie. I bambini sono orfani e l'anziano capofamiglia li tratta con durezza e severità, soprattutto il più piccolo. Il nonno è convinto infatti che Giacomo sia nato da una relazione della nuora in tempo di guerra e lo punisce a ogni occasione, chiudendolo a chiave nella stanza delle mele selvatiche. Lì il ragazzino passa il tempo intagliando il legno e sognando l'avventura, le imprese degli scalatori celebri o degli eroi dei fumetti, e l'avventura gli corre incontro una tarda sera d'agosto. Con l'approssimarsi di un terribile temporale, Giacomo viene mandato dal nonno nel Bosch Negher a recuperare una roncola dimenticata al mattino. Mentre i tuoni sembrano voler squarciare il cielo, alla luce di un lampo scopre vicino all'attrezzo il corpo di un uomo appeso a un albero. L'impiccato è di spalle e lui, terrorizzato, fugge via. Per tutta la vita Giacomo cercherà di sciogliere un mistero che sembra legato a doppio filo con la vita del paese, con i suoi riti ancestrali intrisi di elementi magici e credenze popolari.
