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.

Celestial Bodies

Sandstone Press, 20180621

Abstract: Celestial Bodies is set in the village of al-Awafi in Oman, where we encounter three sisters: Mayya, who marries Abdallah after a heartbreak; Asma, who marries from a sense of duty; and Khawla who rejects all offers while waiting for her beloved, who has emigrated to Canada. These three women and their families witness Oman evolve from a traditional, slave-owning society slowly redefining itself after the colonial era, to the crossroads of its complex present. Elegantly structured and taut, Celestial Bodies is a coiled spring of a novel, telling of Oman's coming-of-age through the prism of one family's losses and loves.

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.

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.

Il cesto di ciliegie / Massimo Tallone

Toirno : Edizioni del Capricorno, 2021

Abstract: Il cesto di ciliegie. Elisa Sanelli, giovane e dotatissima pittrice nella Torino degli anni Novanta, cresciuta in un collettivo di artisti insediato in un’ex fabbrica abbandonata, muore avvelenata in circostanze misteriose, a 27 anni (come Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain…). Le indagini e il processo non riescono a dare un nome all’omicida. Anni dopo Francesca, la voce narrante, accetta suo malgrado di scrivere la storia della giovane pittrice avvelenata, per incarico di un conte eccentrico, biografo dell’eterogeneo gruppo di artisti fra i quali si è sviluppata la tragedia, in un groviglio di tensioni affettive, vibranti ed equivoche. Elisa, solitaria e siderale, è morta a causa del suo straordinario talento o per la sua ambigua relazione con Ginevra? Oppure per l’invidia del padre, che non le avrebbe perdonato di essere più brava di lui? Chi sta cercando a tutti i costi d’impedire a Francesca di ricostruire le circostanze dell’omicidio e raccontare in un libro gli ultimi giorni di Elisa? E ancora: chi muove i personaggi come marionette sulla scena del dramma?Il cesto di ciliegie. Una macchina narrativa perfetta, nei cui meccanismi è facile (no: inevitabile) rimanere prigionieri. Fino all’ultima pagina. Il nuovo noir di Massimo Tallone: un cold case dentro cui è bello naufragare.«Forse, a occhi superficiali, Ginevra non appariva molto bella, signor giudice. E invece era bellissima. Il fascino crudele dei suoi occhi e dei suoi modi guerrieri ghermiva tutti, subito, e li impauriva. Era impossibile resistere a quella sorta di radiazione nucleare che emanava. Era evidente che avrebbe potuto far compiere le imprese più audaci e folli a chiunque, purché lei l’avesse deciso. Soltanto Elisa era al tempo stesso soggiogata dal suo fascino e al di sopra di lei e della sua forza attrattiva. Ricordo bene la prima volta che Elisa, opponendosi all’amica, sedette con un cauto sorriso sulla poltrona di velluto rosso. Nello sguardo sulfureo e nero di Ginevra, ferma sulla soglia della loro stanza, mi sembrò di veder brillare un bagliore rosso.»
