    Edward Burne-Jones by Penelope Fitzgerald




    epub | 2.31 MB | English | Isbn:9780007588220 | Author: Penelope Fitzgerald | Year: 2014

    Description:

    Penelope Fitzgerald, the Booker Prize-winning author of 'Offshore' and 'The Blue Flower', turns her attention to the remarkable life of the Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones. 'I mean by a picture a beautiful, romantic dream of something that never was, never will be, in a light better than any light that ever shone - in a land no one can define or remember, only desire' Edward Burne-Jones Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898) was the prototypical pre-Raphaelite but with a truly individual sensibility. Penelope Fitzgerald's delightful biography charts his life from humble beginnings in Birmingham as the son of an unsuccessful framer, through a transformative period at Oxford, where he met his close friend and collaborator William Morris, and on to the apprenticeship with Dante Gabriel Rossetti that would shape his artistic vision. His work harks back to an Arthurian England - an Arcadia that offered solace against the onset of the Industrial Revolution, and on a deeply personal level provided respite from his ever-present melancholia. This is an illuminating portrait of a fascinating figure - artistic genius, doting father, troubled husband - written with all Penelope Fitzgerald's characteristic sympathy and insight.

    Human Voices by Penelope Fitzgerald




    epub | 697.77 KB | English | Isbn:9780006542544 | Author: Penelope Fitzgerald | Year: 2013

    Description:

    From the Booker Prize-winning author of 'Offshore', 'The Blue Flower' and 'Innocence', this is a funny, touching, authentic story of life at Broadcasting House during the Blitz. The human voices of Penelope Fitzgerald's novel are those of the BBC in the first years of the World War II, the time when the Concert Hall was turned into a dormitory for both sexes, the whole building became a target for enemy bombers, and in the BBC - as elsewhere - some had to fail and some had to die. It does not pretend to be an accurate history of Broadcasting House in those years, but 'one is left with the sensation', as William Boyd said, reviewing it in the 'London Magazine', 'that this is what it was really like.'

    Innocence by Penelope Fitzgerald




    epub | 766.48 KB | English | Isbn:9780544359468 | Author: Penelope Fitzgerald | Year: 2013

    Description:

    Beautiful Chiara is the last of the Ridolfi, a Florentine family of long lineage and eccentric habits. She is smitten with Salvatore, a brilliant but penniless doctor, a rational man who wants nothing to do with romance. This is the story of how these two-with the best intentions, the kindest of instincts, and the most meddlesome of friends-make each other wonderfully miserable inside.

    Offshore by Penelope Fitzgerald




    epub | 613.79 KB | English | Isbn:9780007320967 | Author: Penelope Fitzgerald | Year: 1979

    Description:

    WINNER OF THE BOOKER PRIZE FEATURED ON BBC'S BETWEEN THE COVERS BOOK CLUB Penelope Fitzgerald's Booker Prize-winning novel of loneliness and connecting is set among the houseboat community of the Thames, with an introduction from Alan Hollinghurst. Offshore is a dry, genuinely funny novel, set among the houseboat community who rise and fall with the tide of the Thames on Battersea Reach. Living between land and water, they feel as if they belong to neither... Maurice, a male prostitute, is the sympathetic friend to whom all the others turn. Nenna loves her husband but can't get him back; her children run wild on the muddy foreshore. She feels drawn to Richard, the ex-RNVR city man whose converted minesweeper dominates the Reach. Is he sexually attractive because he can fold maps the right way? With this and other questions waiting to be answered, Offshore offers a delightful glimpse of the workings of an eccentric community.

    Description:

    Short-listed for the Booker Prize
    "Fitzgerald was the author of several slim, perfect novels. The Blue Flower and The Beginning of Spring both had me abuzz for days the first time I read them. She was curiously perfect."- Teju Cole, author of Open City
    "Writing so precise and lilting it can make you shiver." -
    Los Angeles Times
    March 1913. Moscow is stirring herself to meet the beginning of spring. English painter Frank Reid returns from work one night to find that his wife has gone away; no one knows where or why, or whether she'll ever come back. All Frank knows for sure is that he is now alone and must find someone to care for his three young children.
    Into Frank's life comes Lisa Ivanovna, a quiet, calming beauty from the country, untroubled to the point of seeming simple. But is she? And why has Frank's bookkeeper, Selwyn Crane, gone to such lengths to bring these two together?

    The Golden Child by Penelope Fitzgerald




    epub | 993.14 KB | English | Isbn:9780006546252 | Author: Penelope Fitzgerald | Year: 2013

    Description:

    The Golden Child, Penelope Fitzgerald's first work of fiction, is a classically plotted British mystery centred around the arrival of the 'Golden Child' at a London museum. Far be it for the hapless Waring Smith, junior officer at a prominent London museum, to expect any kind of thanks for his work on the opening of the year's biggest exhibition - The Golden Child. But when he is nearly strangled to death by a shadowy assailant and packed off to Moscow to negotiate with a mysterious curator, he finds himself at the centre of a sinister web of conspiracy, fraudulent artifacts and murder... Her first novel and a comic gem, 'The Golden Child' is written with the sharp wit and unerring eye for human foibles that mark Penelope Fitzgerald out as a truly inimitable author, and one to be cherished.

    Exit Black by Joe Pitkin




    epub | 824.63 KB | English | | Author: Joe Pitkin | Year: 2024

    Description:

    Air Force One meets The Martian-with a dash of Knives Out-in this action-packed sci-fi thriller.
    Imperium is the most expensive structure ever created. Once an orbiting laboratory, it is now a space hotel for the fantastically wealthy. But as the station preps for its first group of space tourists, Dr. Chloe Bonilla, Imperium's resident biophysicist, finds herself questioning whether babysitting a passel of space glampers is worth the distraction from her research.
    A private rocket delivers a rogues' gallery of the world's elite to Imperium: eccentric billionaires, callow tech bros, a sponsored Instagram influencer, and a seemingly saintly philanthropist. However, posing among the staff are members of a global terrorist group who call themselves the Reckoners, hell bent on upending the economic inequality of twenty-first-century Earth-and they have a bone to pick with these scions of the 1 percent.
    As the Reckoners take control of Imperium and demand an $8 billion ransom from their wealthy hostages, it's up to Dr. Bonilla to save them, and fast. Or the captives will be forced to exit the station-and there's only one way out.

    The Deepest Kill by Lisa Black




    epub | 613.92 KB | English | Isbn:9781496749659 | Author: Lisa Black | Year: 2024

    Description:

    A riveting thriller that puts the New York Times bestselling author squarely in the same league as Patricia Cornwell and Jefferson Bass, the Locard Institute Thriller series draws on Lisa Black's real-life scientific expertise and her skill in crafting complex and dynamic female characters, as two female forensic experts team up to solve the deadliest and most devious crimes.
    For software pioneer Martin Post, the third richest man in America, his private compound on the Florida coast is a sunny no-man's-land separating his family from the rest of the world. Now, expert forensic analysts Ellie Carr and Rachael Davies of the renowned Locard Institute have been summoned to its dark side.
    Martin's pregnant daughter, Ashley, had ventured on a day trip in her motorboat into the Gulf, only to wash up dead on a nearby shore. Although the local coroner determined her death was an accident, Ellie and Rachael soon confirm Martin's gravest fear: His daughter was murdered. Was it a kidnapping gone wrong? Or something even more brutal? Ashley and her husband, Greg, had been working working with Martin on a revolutionary new defense initiative for the US military - could espionage have played a part in her death? Martin believes Greg is behind the murder, and the spoiled charmer does set off Rachel's deception radar. If the widower didn't kill Ashley himself, why isn't he more upset that she's dead?
    Drawn into the Posts' increasingly dangerous family dynamic, Ellie and Rachael must work hard and fast to discover what secrets are buried at the heart of the crime. Because the churning waters of the Gulf are getting rougher. And soon, Ellie and Rachael themselves will be in danger of getting crushed in their depths.
