Download Kurze Begegnungen Mit Che Guevara books, Faszinierende Reise an exotische Orte unserer Erde Fountain führt den Leser an Orte, wo kein Tourist sich hinwagen würde. Seine amerikanischen Landsleute hat es dorthin verschlagen, um zu arbeiten oder um Gutes zu tun. Ein Ornithologe versucht trotz Geiselhaft durch kolumbianische Freiheitskämpfer eine seltene Vogelart zu retten; ein Entwicklungshelfer bemüht sich, Frauen oder auch kostbares Kulturgut vor dem Untergang zu bewahren; die Gattin eines Special-Forces- Offiziers besiegt eine haitianische Voodoo-Göttin, mit der ihr Mann eine nicht eindeutig spirituelle Beziehung unterhält. Verwegene Abenteuer in einem Mix aus Tragik, Gefahr, Aufruhr und Hoffnung, der so charakteristisch ist für Länder im Umbruch. Provozierend und scharfsinnig porträtiert Fountain seine Helden und Heldinnen, niemals lässt er sie im Stich, sondern spannt ihnen bei ihren existenziellen Drahtseilakten ein Netz aus Humor und Freundlichkeit auf.

Stork Mountain

by Miroslav Penkov, Stork Mountain Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Stork Mountain books, In his mesmerising first novel, the internationally celebrated short-story writer Miroslav Penkov spins the intriguing tale of an American student who returns to Bulgaria, the country he left as a child. His mission is to track down his grandfather and to find out why he suddenly cut off all contact with the family three years before. The trail leads him to a remote village on the border with Turkey, a stone's throw away from Greece, high up in the Strandja Mountains - a place of pagan mysteries and storks nesting in giant oaks; a place where every spring, possessed by Christian saints, men and women dance barefoot across live coals in search of rebirth. Here in the mountains, he is drawn by his grandfather into a maze of half-truths. And here, he falls in love with an unobtainable Muslim girl. Old ghosts come back to life and forgotten conflicts blaze anew, until the past finally yields up its plangent secrets.

East Of The West

by Miroslav Penkov, East Of The West Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download East Of The West books, A grandson tries to buy the corpse of Lenin on eBay for his Communist grandfather. A failed wunderkind steals a golden cross from an Orthodox church. A boy meets his cousin (the love of his life) once every five years in the river that divides their village into east and west. These are Miroslav Penkov's strange, unexpectedly moving visions of his home country, Bulgaria, and they are the stories that make up his charming, deeply felt debut collection. In EAST OF THE WEST, Penkov writes with great empathy of centuries of tumult; his characters mourn the way things were and long for things that will never be. But even as they wrestle with the weight of history, with the debt to family, with the pangs of exile, the stories in EAST OF THE WEST are always light on their feet, animated by Penkov's unmatched eye for the absurd.

More Time

by Lee Clark Mitchell, More Time Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download More Time books, More Time studies the contemporary short story and focuses on four recent collections: Alice Munro's Dear Life (2012); Andre Dubus's Dancing After Hours (1996); Joy Williams's The Visiting Privilege (2015); and Lydia Davis's Can't and Won't (2014). Each publication has appeared near the conclusion of a career devoted all but exclusively to short stories, with each defining a 'late style' honed over a lifetime. As well, each diverges from others in ways that have profoundly shaped our generic conceptions, and collectively they represent the four most innovative practitioners of the past half-century (with the arguable exception of Raymond Carver). Yet in an era when writing programs, The New Yorker, and distinguished journals all promulgate the short story, it remains relatively under-examined as a major literary form. We continue to argue about what a story inherently is, ignoring how differences among practitioners enliven the field. Dubus, Munro, Williams, and Davis each defy critical efforts to identify the story form's presumed constitution, marked by a supposedly special shape or requisite length or distinct narrative trajectory. And the very contrast among their efforts reveals the expansiveness of the genre, though few have taken such a cross-glancing interpretive approach. This volume opens up discussion, shifting from close analysis into larger speculation about possibilities established by the most innovative writers in their later work.
