Stained Glass - First edition

2013, ISBN: 9780393311747

Paperback, Hardcover, ID: 742064403

Paperback. New. This is the 2013 granta best young british novelist. A visceral retelling of the events surrounding the life of Jesus . (Hilary Mantel, Guardian, Books of the Year). 'He was a traitor, a rabble-leader, a rebel, a liar and a pretender to the throne. We have tried to forget him here.' Now, a year after Yehoshuah's death, four people tell their stories. His mother flashes between grief and rage while trouble brews between her village and the occupying soldiers. Iehuda, who was once Yehoshuah's friend, recalls how he came to lose his faith and find a place among the Romans. Caiaphas, the High Priest at the great Temple in Jerusalem, tries to hold the peace between Rome and Judea. Bar-Avo, a rebel, strives to bring that peace tumbling down. Viscerally powerful in its depictions of the realities of the period: massacres and riots, animal sacrifice and human betrayal, The Liars' Gospel finds echoes of the present in the past. It was a time of political power-play and brutal tyranny and occupation. Young men and women took to the streets to protest. Dictators put them down with iron force. Rumours spread from mouth to mouth. Rebels attacked the greatest Empire the world has ever known. The Empire gathered its forces to make those rebels pay. And in the midst of all of that, one inconsequential preacher died. And either something miraculous happened, or someone lied. Praise for The Liars' Gospel: Ambitious, genius . (Tom Holland, Guardian). Remarkable ...paints the sweep of history through the sharp pain of human love and loss . (Observer). Succeeds magnificently, superb, brilliant. A provocative and mesmerizing novel . (New Statesman). Naomi Alderman grew up in the Orthodox Jewish community in northwest London. Her first novel, Disobedience, was published in 10 languages and won the Orange Award for New Writers and the Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year prize. Like her second novel, The Lessons, it was broadcast as Radio 4's Book at Bedtime. She is a frequent radio broadcaster and a regular contributor to the Guardian and Prospect. She lives in London., Edinburgh: Canongate Classics. Very Good. 1988. 1st Canongate Classic Edition. Soft Cover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 0862411475 Paperback Paperback. The second volume of Elizabeth Grant's classic autobiography follows the fortunes of the Grants of Rothiemurchus from her family's arrival in Edinburgh in 1814 when she was seventeen. She describes the trauma of a broken engagement and her agonies are an echo of the overall problems suffered by her father, Sir John peter Grant, as his legal and political ambitions collapsed, with the direst of consequences for his family. After the interlude of a continental tour of Holland in 1819, the decision is taken to retreat to Rothiemurchus. An Indian judgeship provides an unexpected avenye to escape from Sir John Peter's creditors, and her Memoirs end with the thirty-three year old Elizabeth finding her own future happiness in marriage to an Irish landowner. 345 pp. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions ,and all types of Academic Literature.) ., Canongate Classics, 1988, Echo Library, 2010-11-17.

Mischievous Yallery Brown deceives the unwary, the great black bull of Norroway fights the devil, and Siôn Dafydd finds that woman's work is not as easy as he thought. By turns comic and frightening, revealing and strange, these tales evoke a shared heritage, unique to the British Isles. There is a fascination in tracing their roots in Celtic mythology, history, superstition and common rural experiences, but in the end, it is the magical pageantry of the stories themselves which continues to enchant. As Kevin Crossley-Holland says, 'They are doorstep stories leading to a better understanding of ourselves and our own world'. Some are written down exactly as early collectors heard them told on winter evenings or amid the hum and bustle of spinning sheds, echoing with the cadences of vanished dialects. Others are retold by well-known writers like Alan Garner or W. B. Yeats, who add poetic flesh to the bones of story. 'It is the mark of a good fairy-story ... that however wild its events, however fantastic or terrible the adventures, it can give to child or man that hears it "---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo.

Book Description: HOLIDAYMAKER FIGHTS OFF AFRICAN LION IN WELSH HOTEL ROOM MAN SWALLOWS MOUSE AND DIES WIFE DRIVEN MAD BY HUSBAND TICKLING FEET PALLBEARER KILLED BY COFFIN IN GRAVEYARD LIBERALS EAT DOG From the newspaper archives of the British Library, Jeremy Clay has unearthed the long-lost stories that enthralled and appalled Victorian Britain. Within these pages are the riotous farces and tragedies of nineteenth-century life, a time when life was hard, pleasures short-lived, and gloating over other people's misfortune a thoroughly acceptable form of entertainment. Deliciously dreadful and deliriously funny, The Burglar Caught by a Skeleton will have you, one way or another, in tears. : Review: 'If you like black humour you will like Clay's eclectic compilation.' The Times 'Clay takes us on a delightful romp through the seedy, saucy and sensational stories hidden away in the Victorian press ... All the minutiae of Victorian life is here.' -- Alexandra Henton The Field 'You will laugh, cry, cringe and feel queasy, but you will not fail to enjoy this treasure trove of fascinating tales.' -- Sophie Herdman Press Association 'Jeremy Clay has managed to distil the funny, the disturbing and the downright heartbreaking.' Fortean Times 'As these potty tales from Victorian Britain show, being bonkers isn't a new thing ...' Chat 'It's a fun account of the more lurid side of Victorian life' Liverpool Echo : About the Author: Jeremy Clay is Features Editor at the Leicester Mercury.

NO remainder marks or price clippings. Tight spine - Bright pages. 415 pages. - Commander Adam Dalgliesh, P. D. James’s formidable and fascinating detective, returns to find himself enmeshed in a terrifying story of passion and mystery -- and in love. The Dupayne, a small private museum in London devoted to the interwar years 1919 -- 1939, is in turmoil. As its trustees argue over whether it should be closed, one of them is brutally and mysteriously murdered. Yet even as Commander Dalgliesh and his team proceed with their investigation, a second corpse is discovered. Someone in the Dupayne is prepared to kill and kill again. Still more sinister, the murders appear to echo the notorious crimes of the past featured in one of the museum’s galleries: the Murder Room. The case is fraught with danger and complications from the outset, but for Dalgliesh the complications are unexpectedly profound. His new relationship with Emma Lavenham -- introduced in the last Dalgliesh novel, Death in Holy Orders -- is at a critical stage. Now, as he moves closer and closer to a solution to the puzzle, he finds himself driven further and further from commitment to the woman he loves. The Murder Room is a powerful work of mystery and psychological intricacy from a master of the modern novel. Author Biography: P. D. James is the author of 17 previous books, most of which have been filmed for television. Before her retirement in 1979, she served in the forensics and criminal justice departments of Great Britain’s Home Office, and she has been a magistrate and a governor of the BBC. The recipient of many prizes and honours, she was created Baroness James of Holland Park in 1991. In 2000 she celebrated her 80th birthday and published her autobiography, Time to Be in Earnest. .

It marks the emergence into highly individual voice of an important poet of the eminence of the late May Swenson, beyond the achievement of all but a double handful of living American poets. Some of the poemsSeason Due, Science Lessons, most of all, The Broken Potare worthy of canonization. Harold Bloom Rosanna Warrens first collection of poetry, Each Leaf Shines Separate, announced the emergence of a fresh voice in contemporary American poetry and earned praise from John Hollander, Richard Eberhart, and Mark Strand. Now, in her second book, Rosanna Warren has fulfilled her promise. In Stained Glass she continues to examine, as John Hollander said of her first book, the relation of art to nature, exploring the ultimate naturalness of the world of picture, and reading tenderly and shrewdly the forms of fable in which reality presents itself to the passionate gaze. Yet in this volume the poems are more personal and intimatethey possess an emotional depth that extends the earlier work. Stained Glass is a book of mourning. It begins with an echo of Miltons Lycidas and concludes with an evocation of Iliad XXIV; in its course it touches on many scenes of loss, personal and impersonal. In the voice of an Eskimo mother, in a Parisian market scene, in brilliant translations of poems by Max Jacob and Pierre Reverdy, to the more intimate elegies, the human drama unfolds within the larger rhythms of the natural landscape. In poems that are classical and eloquent, ranging from sonnets and rhymed quatrains to highly flexible free verse, Warren vividly probes the savagery of aging, the corruption of the human body and human estrangement from the divine, evoking as well scenes of simple tenderness and beauty. This years recipient of an Ingram Merrill grant and the Lavan Award from the Academy of American Poets that honors a poet of exceptional merit under the age of forty, Rosanna Warren is clearly one of the most gifted poets of her generation.
