Trust Me Peter Leonard


Peter Leonard showed remarkable maturity for a first-time novelist in Quiver, his debut novel. In Trust Me, he reaches for new heights as he crafts a classic noir thriller loaded with double- and triplecrosses. The first mistake Karen Delaney made was entrusting $300,000 to her boyfriend, Samir, the head of an illegal bookmaking operation. The second was breaking up with him because Samir holds a $300,000 grudge. Months later, Karen sees an opportunity when two thieves break into her house in the middle of the night. She proposes a scheme to Samir's safe. But almost immediately Karen realizes she's in over her head as things begin to spin out of control. Trust Me moves at breakneck speed through the affluent suburbs of Detroit and Chicago as Karen is pursued by O'Clair, an over-the- hill heavy who works for Samir and wants the money for his own retirement; by Ricky, Samir's nephew who sees the money as a way to pay off his own massive gambling debts; by the thieves who've been double-crossed;…


Foreign Affairs Alison Lurie


Awards Pulitzer Prize for Fiction "There is no American writer I have read with more constant pleasure and sympathy… Foreign Affairs earns the same shelf as Henry James and Edith Wharton." – John Fowles WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE Virginia Miner, a fifty-something, unmarried tenured professor, is in London to work on her new book about children's folk rhymes. Despite carrying a U.S. passport, Vinnie feels essentially English and rather looks down on her fellow Americans. But in spite of that, she is drawn into a mortifying and oddly satisfying affair with an Oklahoman tourist who dresses more Bronco Billy than Beau Brummel. Also in London is Vinnie's colleague Fred Turner, a handsome, flat broke, newly separated, and thoroughly miserable young man trying to focus on his own research. Instead, he is distracted by a beautiful and unpredictable English actress and the world she belongs to. Both American, both abroad, and both achingly lonely, Vinnie and Fred play out their confused alienation…

Aspects of the Novel Edward Forster


Forster's renowned guide to writing sparkles with wit and insight for contemporary writers and readers. With lively language and excerpts from well-known classics, Forster takes on the seven elements vital to a novel: story, people, plot, fantasy, prophecy, pattern, and rhythm. He not only defines and explains such terms as "round" characters versus "flat" characters (and why both are needed for an effective novel), but also provides examples of writing from such literary greats as Dickens and Austen. Forster's original commentary illuminates and entertains without lapsing into complicated, scholarly rhetoric, coming together in a key volume on writing by a novelist Graham Greene called a "gentle genius".  EDWARD MORGAN FORSTER was born in 1879 in London and attended King's College, Cambridge, where he later became an honorary Fellow. After leaving Cambridge, Forster lived in Greece and Italy as well as Egypt and India. He is the author of six novels, Where Angels Fear to Tread, A Room…

Lila. An Inquiry Into Morals Robert Pirsig

И раздел сфер влияния в Новом Свете зависит от того, кто первым доставит…
