Parrot in the Oven: Mi Vida - Paperback

Hardcover, ID: 247538140

Audioworks, 1991-04-01. Audio Cassette. Very Good. 0671724657 Review A spirited sequel to The Eagle Has Landed, the 1975 WW II adventure thriller that catapulted Higgins into best-sellerdom. Though lacking the wild premise, drama, and suspense of the original, this engrossing follow-up, Higgin's 50th novel, does display a veteran's craftsmanship as it traces what happened to noble S.S. colonel Kurt Steiner and charismatic IRA hit-man Liam Devlin after their botched attempt to shanghai Winston Churchill to Nazi Germany on Himmler's orders. Once again, Higgins veneers his tale with historicity - here, by presenting it as being told to him by Devlin shortly after the publication of The Eagle Has Landed. Steiner, Devlin tells Higgins, wasn't shot dead after all but was captured - inspiring Himmler to launch a rescue operation led by Devlin (working for money to fund the IRA) and organized by heroic S.S. general Walter Schellenberg, but also inspiring the British, led by military mastermind Dougal Munro, who gets wind of the rescue, to set a trap for Devlin. The lion's share of the pages, and clearly Higgins's heart, belong to the rescuers, with Schellenberg shown recruiting a daredevil escape pilot as Devlin sneaks into England, travels to London, contacts IRA cronies, has a violent run-in with gangsters, and, disguised as a priest, snatches Steiner from under Munro's nose. A robust tale, told with gusto if no inspiration; more intriguing is the novel-long subplot about why Himmler wants Steiner rescued: to occupy Schellenberg while Himmler, infuriated with Hitler's military losses, plots to kill the Fuehrer - a plan Schellenberg determines to disrupt, realizing that only Hitler's incompetence will shorten the needless, bloody, already lost war. . . Lots of manly action, and the golden title will make this a best-seller, but more masterful entertainment is available in The Eagle Has Landed - which the publisher is simultaneously reissuing in hard-cover in a "fully restored, complete" version, about 10% longer than the 1975 edition. (Kirkus Reviews) Review Publishers Weekly A triumphant return to the settings and characters from Jack Higgins' most famous novel, The Eagle Has Landed. The master of the WWII thriller is at the top of his form.

His tiny country is flanked on the northeast by the Kingdom River, a vast, trade-driven nation that replaced the southern United States, and on the northwest by the Khanate, an empire of nomads who swept down the west coast after crossing the ice from what was once Russia. Sam's people cling to a precarious, hard-won freedom. Toghrul Khan, leader of the Khanate, wants Kingdom's lucrative trade and lush farmlands. To get them, Sam Monroe knows, the Khan's forces will march right over his people's small towns and precious homesteads. His country's only hope is an alliance with Kingdom-but the far larger Kingdom may simply swallow them up. Unless...Keywords: FICTION FANTASY ADVENTURE SNOWFALL TRILOGY First paperback printing.

Perico, or parrot, was what Dad called me sometimes. It was from a Mexican saying about a parrot that complains how hot it is in the shade, while all along he's sitting inside an oven and doesn't know it.... For Manuel Hernandez, the year leading up to his test of courage, his initiation into a gang, is a time filled with the pain and tension, awkwardness and excitement of growing up in a crazy world. His dad spends most of his time and money at the local pool hall; his brother flips through jobs like a thumb through a deck of cards; and his mom never stops cleaning the house, as though one day the rooms will be so spotless they'll disappear into a sparkle, and she'll be free. Manny's dad is always saying that people are like money--there are million- and thousand- and hundred-dollar people out there, and to him, Manny is just a penny. But Manny wants to be more than a penny, smarter than the parrot in the oven. He wants to find out what it means to be a vato firme, a guy to respect. In this beautifully written novel, Victor Martinez gives readers a vivid portrait of one Mexican-American boy's life. Manny's story is like a full-color home movie--sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but always intensely original.For Manuel Hernandez, the year leading up to his test of courage, his initiation into a gang, is a time filled with the pain and tension, awkwardness and excitement of growing up in a mixed-up, crazy world.
