Secrecy by Rupert Thomson

Posted on July 24th, 2014 by in Uncategorized

Secrecy by Rupert Thomson is a tale of intrigue love and murder set in seventeenth century Florence where knowledge is the property of few who guard it fiercely

The obsessions of the top people are with art, sex and power. The city itself is a dark repressive place following the bonfires of the vanities.

The once enlightened city where humanism was reborn, has been replaced with one that is dark, sinister and repressive where a man can feel as if he’s being pursued by his past.

The protagonist Gaetano Zummo who lives in fear of criminal charges. At the age of 20 he was forced to flee Siracuse, but has now changed his life.

Cosimo III, head of the famous family of the Medici of Florence is the leader who gives him his most challenging commission ever. Can he carry it out?

This is a novel of ideas; a love story, a murder mystery, the portrait of a man and a place where in an age of austerity, just surviving on a daily basis is the penultimate challenge. Ingenious adn unsettling, this has a heartbeat pounding loudly with the pace of puzzle and surprise.

Twist after twist distorts and disorientates until finally in snow covered hills surrounding Florence a showdown reveals secrets the city has kept hidden, which have become far more explosive than his own.

About the Author

Rupert Thomson is the author of eight highly acclaimed novels: Dreams of Leaving, The Five Gates of Hell, Air & Fire, The Insult, Soft, The Book of Revelation, Divided Kingdom and most recently, Death of a Murderer, which was shortlisted for the Costa Novel of the Year Award and by World Book Day for the Book to Talk About 2008. His memoir, This Party’s Got to Stop, also published by Granta, won him the Writers’ Guild Non-Fiction Award. He lives in London with his wife and daughter.

Les Misérables by Victor Hugo is a canvas for its author to produce a portrait larger than life, an extravagant spectacle dazzling senses and captivating hearts

This is a dramatic story about crime and punishment, persecution and desperation, amorality and the universal desire to escape the prisons of our own minds.

Victor Hugo immersed his readers in the Parisian underworld of his time, where the battle for good and evil carries them forward to the barricades during the uprising of 1832 where they stood shoulder to shoulder shouting “Liberté, Fraternité, Egalité, Creátivité?

It’s the story of the French peasant Jean Valjean and his quest for redemption and his journey in life after spending years in gaol for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his sister’s starving child. It’s a story that touched hearts and minds worldwide when it was first published in 1862, and still continues to do so today.

Two editions, the first containing Norman Denny’s introduction to his lively English translation.

It discusses Hugo’s political and artistic aims in writing Les Misérables over a ten year period.

Second Edition is a Film Tie-in

About the Author

Victor Hugo (1802–85) was the most forceful, prolific and versatile of French nineteenth-century writers.

He wrote Romantic costume dramas, many volumes of lyrical and satirical verse, political and other journalism, criticism and several novels, the best known of which are Les misérables (1862) and the youthful Notre-Dame de Paris (1831).

A royalist and conservative as a young man, Hugo later became a committed social democrat and during the Second Empire of Napoleon III was exiled from France, living in the Channel Islands. He returned to Paris in 1870 and remained a great public figure until his death: his body lay in state under the Arc de Triomphe before being buried in the Panthéon.

Johann Sebastian Bach and his sons...

Music in the Castle of Heaven by John Eliot Gardiner is a portrait of Johann Sebastian Bach from a musician combining musical analysis with performance insights

Johann Sebastian Bach was a Court Composer at Weimar for two ruling Grand Dukes 1708 – 1717 and then, at Cöthen for a youthful Prince Leopold.

He wrote works for small court orchestra, including toccatas, capriccios, fantasias, fugues, variations, suites, sonatas, and miscellaneous shorter pieces for teaching.

His six acclaimed Brandenburg Concertos were dedicated to the Margrave of Brandenburg in 1721.

Bach is undoubtedly is one of the most unfathomable composers in the history of music.

Scholars of music marvel about how such sublime works were produced by a man who seems so ordinary, so opaque – and occasionally so intemperate?

John Eliot Gardiner by distilling the fruits of a lifetime’s immersion as one of Bach’s greatest living interpreters addresses the issues. He explains in detail how Bach worked and how his music achieves its effects.

Gardiner also takes us as deeply into Bach’s works and attempts to understand what ran through his mind when composing.]

He has produced unique work, about one of the greatest of all enlightened composers.

About the Author

There could be no better-qualified guide to the mysteries behind Bach’s music than John Eliot Gardiner the conductor who has breathed new life into performances of Bach’s music.

As an exploration of Bach’s labyrinthine thought-processes, and as an analysis of his music’s overwhelming power, this book will be required reading for both listeners and performers alike

Sir John Eliot Gardiner is one of the world’s leading conductors, not only of Baroque music but across the whole repertoire. He founded the Monteverdi Choir and Orchestra, the Orchestre de l’Opera de Lyon, the English Baroque Soloists, and the Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique.

Stoner by John Williams

Posted on July 2nd, 2014 by in Fiction, Literature

Stoner by John Williams is a classic, considered one of the great forgotten novels of the past century, but it seems it is forgotten no longer. Have you read it?

Forty-eight years after its first, quiet publication in the US, Stoner is finally finding the wide and devoted readership it deserves.

During 2013 translations of Stoner began appearing on bestseller lists across Europe.

It tells the tale of William Stoner, who enters the University of Missouri at nineteen to study agriculture.

A seminar on English literature changes his life, and he never returns to work on his father’s farm.

Stoner becomes a teacher. He marries the wrong woman. His life is quiet, and after his death his colleagues remember him rarely.

Yet with truthfulness, compassion and intense power, this novel uncovers a story of universal value.

Stoner tells of the conflicts, defeats and victories of the human race that pass unrecorded by history, and reclaims the significance of an individual life.

A reading experience like no other, itself a paean to the power of literature, it is a novel to be savoured.

‘It’s the most marvellous discovery for everyone who loves literature’ Ian McEwan, BBC Radio 4

All the Birds, Singing by Evie Wyld is Winner 2014 Miles Franklin Award set between Australia and a remote English island where one woman’s past has to be faced

Ms Wyld’s novel has been judged as being ‘of the highest literary merit’ and presents ‘Australian Life in any of its phases’ in accordance with Miles Franklin’s guidelines for the Award. The trust will grant Ms Wyld $60,000 in prize money. A Must Read.

Evie Wyld’s wonderfully and beautifully crafted prose has deceptive sparseness, which combines powerfully with an ingenious structure to create a compelling narrative of alienation, decline and finally, perhaps, some form of redemption.’

Who or what is watching Jake Whyte from the woods?

Jake Whyte is the sole resident of an old farmhouse on an unnamed island, a place of ceaseless rains and battering winds. It’s just her, her untamed companion, Dog, and a flock of sheep.

Which is how she wanted it to be. But something is coming for the sheep – every few nights it picks one off, leaves it in rags.

It could be anything. There are foxes in the woods, a strange boy and a strange man, rumours of an obscure, formidable beast.

And there is Jake’s unknown past, perhaps breaking into the present, a story hidden thousands of miles away and years ago, in a landscape of different colour and sound, a story held in the scars that stripe her back.
