Closing Time Closing Time

   A reissue of the breath-taking sequel to CATCH-22 — now a classic in its own right. Forty-two years ago Joseph Heller wrote the 20th century masterpiece CATCH-22, capturing the hilarious and tragic insanity of the times and galvanising the conscience of a generation. In the sequel, CLOSING TIME, he revisits many of the characters — now older, if not wiser — that made CATCH-22 so unforgettable: Yossarian, Milo Minderbinder, Chaplain Tappman, Sammy Singer and giant Lew, all linked in uneasy peace and old age, fighting not the Germans this time, but The End. CLOSING TIME is a stunning achievement; a chilling, darkly funny depiction of the moral collapse of the Western world.

   A mysterious plague in the Antarctic. A diamond empire run by an evil genius. A devastating new technology that threatens to annihilate millions. Tasman Sea, 1856. A British clipper ship bound for Australia's penal colony is crushed in a raging typhoon. A few pitiful survivors wash up on a deserted island. Among them are Betsy Fletcher and Jess Dorsett, who discover an immense supply of exquisite diamonds... Seymour Island, Antarctica, 2000. Dirk Pitt rescues Maeve Fletcher, a descendant of Betsy and Jess, after an unknouwn cataclysm kills thousands of marine animals and nearly two hundred people aboard a cruise ship. Pitt traces the carnage to the global diamond operations of Maeve's father, Arthur Dorsett, and her callous sisters. From a chilling escape at a high-security Canadian mine to a tiny boat adrift on lonely, shark-infested seas, the ingenious Pitt is racing to thwart Dorsett's ruthless plans — before an unthinkable disaster claims millions of innocent lives.

   On Sunday April 27, 2003, 27-year old Aron Ralston set off for a day's hiking in the Utah canyons. Dressed in a t-shirt and shorts, Ralston, a seasoned climber, figured he'd hike for a few hours and then head off to work. 40 miles from the nearest paved road, he found himself on top of an 800-pound boulder. As he slid down and off of the boulder it shifted, trapping his right hand against the canyon wall. No one knew where he was; he had little water; he wasn't dressed correctly; and the boulder wasn't going anywhere. He remained trapped for five days in the canyon: hypothermic at night, de-hydrated and hallucinating by day. Finally, he faced the most terrible decision of his life: braking the bones in his wrist by snapping them against the boulder, he hacked through the skin, and finally succeeded in amputating his right hand and wrist. The ordeal, however, was only beginning. He still faced a 60-foot rappell to freedom, and a walk of several hours back to his car — along the way, he miraculously met a family of hikers, and with his arms tourniqued, and blood-loss almost critical, they heard above them the whir of helicopter blades; just in time, Aron was rescued and rushed to hospital. Since that day, Aron has had a remarkable recovery. He is back out on the mountains, with an artificial limb; he speaks to select groups on his ordeal and rescue; and amazingly, he is upbeat, positive, and an inspiration to all who meet him. This is the account of those five days, of the years that led up to them, and where he goes from here. It is narrative non-fiction at its most compelling.

El Bufalo de la Noche El Bufalo de la Noche
Автор: Жанр: Simon & Schuster Издательство: Simon & Schuster Год: 2008 Страниц: 228 Дата загрузки: 24 июля 2009
   Tras el suicidio de su mejor amigo, Manuel se ve acosado por la sombra de la enfermedad mental de aquel, por su mundo de violencia y por la tortuosa relacion sentimental con su novia, que fue inicialmente pareja de Gregorio, el amigo muerto; citas no cumplidas, extranos mensajes y la sombra de un policIa que aparece como vengador de una infidelidad que lo llevo a la locura. Escrita con la agilidad de un guion cinematografico y con un fondo de personajes urbanos que se mueven en los margenes de la delincuencia, esta novela confirma a su autor como uno de los mejores escritores mexicanos de las Ultimas generaciones. Con tono existencial que da cuenta de los aspectos mas crudos de la sociedad de nuestro tiempo, esta obra de suspenso trae personajes bien construidos, atractivos y que se ven inmersos en una atmosfera cercana tanto a la novela macabra como a la prosa de Franz Kafka.

But when she wanders off by herself, and then tries to catch up by attempting a shortcut, she becomes lost in a wilderness maze full of peril and terror. As night falls, Trisha has only her ingenuity as a defense against the elements, and only her courage and faith to withstand her mounting fears. For solace she tunes her Walkman to broadcasts of Boston Red Sox baseball games and follows the gritty performances of her hero, relief pitcher Tom Gordon. And when her radio's reception begins to fade, Trisha imagines that Tom Gordon is with her — protecting her from an all-too-real enemy who has left a trail of slaughtered animals and mangled trees in the dense, dark woods....

   In the year of grace 1345, as Sir Roger Baron de Tourneville is gathering an army to join King Edward III in the war against France, a most astonishing event occurs: a huge silver ship descends through the sky and lands in a pasture beside the little village of Ansby in northeastern Lincolnshire. The Wersgorix, whose scouting ship it is, are quite expert at taking over planets, and having determined from orbit that this one was suitable, they initiate standard world-conquering procedure. Ah, but this time it's no mere primitives the Wersgorix seek to enslave — they've launched their invasion against free Englishmen. In the end, only one alien is left alive — and Sir Roger's grand vision is born. He intends for the creature to fly the ship first to France to aid his King, then on to the Holy Land to vanquish the infidel. Unfortunately, he has not allowed for the treachery of the alien pilot, who instead takes the craft to his home planet, where, he thinks, these upstart barbarians will have no choice but to surrender. But that knavish alien little understands the indomitable will and clever resourcefulness of Englishmen, no matter how great the odds against them.

Malinche Malinche
Автор: Жанр: Simon & Schuster Издательство: Simon & Schuster Год: 2008 Страниц: 189 Дата загрузки: 27 августа 2010
   Cuando Malinalli conoce a Hernan Cortes, asume que se trata del propio Dios Quetzalcoatl que regresa a liberar a su pueblo. Los dos se enamoran apasionadamente, pero este amor pronto es destruido por la desmedida sed de conquista, poder y riqueza de Cortes. A lo largo de la historia de Mexico Malinalli/Malinche ha sido conocida por su traicion al pueblo indio. Pero recientes investigaciones historicas han demostrado que Malinalli fue la mediadora entre dos culturas, la hispanica y la indigena; y entre dos lenguas, el espanol y el nahuatl. Lo que Esquivel ha hecho en esta novela es desafiar la mitologia tradicional mediante un retrato muy temperamental del Adan y la Eva de la cultura mestiza, Cortes y Malinalli, con la caida del imperio azteca como telon de fondo. Contada con el lirismo de la tradicion cantarina y pictorica del nahuatl, Laura Esquivel nos brinda un mito fundacional de la cultura hibrida del Nuevo Mundo y una extraordinaria historia de amor.
