He incorporates numerous short quotes, from Swift and Smollet to the builders, clerks and minor politicians who worked behind the city's scenes. But in the main, the book reads like the large-scale compendium of secondary sources and cullings from the public record that it is, rather than a thick description of the historically evolving qualities of London life.

Travel

Intended as an antidote to potted biographies and piecemeal reconstructions of his voyages, this volume draws on judicious selections from Christopher Columbus's own writings - chronologically arranged, and translated into idiomatic English - to relate his self-perception and personal history, as far as is possible, in his own words. The result is a full and vivid (and often surprising) portrait of this complex man and the role he thought he was destined to play as God’s instrument on earth.

PRODATO

Fiction

On November 15, 1959, in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas, four members of the Clutter family were savagely murdered by blasts from a shotgun held a few inches from their faces. There was no apparent motive for the crime, and there were almost no clues.
Five years , four months and twenty-nine days later , on April 14, 1965, Richard Eugene Hickock, aged thirty-three, and Perry Edward Smith, aged thirty-six, were hanged for the crime on a gallows in a warehouse in the Kansas State Penitentiary in Lansing, kansas.
In Cold Blood is the story of the lives and deaths of these six people. It has already been hailed as a masterpiece.

 

139. Defonseca, Misha : « Surviving With Wolves » - The Most Extraordinary Story of World War II (Š - 2718 ; DB – 03-648)
Publisher : Portrait, London, 2005
Pages : 245
Price : 1200 RSD
History

Misha was only seven when the Nazis took her Jewish parents away from her in Brussels. No one told her why her parents were no longer with her ; only that they had gone East. So one day, equipped with just a tiny compass, the little girl set out East to find them. Alone and on foot, Misha crossed Belgium, Germany, Poland and the Ukraine.
Surviving With Wolves is Misha’s extraordinary and poignant story – of how a young girl witnessed the appalling cruelties of war, and for whom the animals of the forest proved safer than humans. It is a book that will never be forgotten by anyone who reads it.

Travel

Although a numberof books have been written about the Thailand of post-war years, there is no autobiography which describes the experiences of the everyday life of the European co,,unity and the Siamese around them during the years of the waning absolute monarchy and the turbulence of the early Revolutionary period.
This readable book is an accurately written account of those years, of the mountainous, heavily forested North with its teak stations, the cultivated Central Plain, the tin mines of the South and the sophisticated capital of Bangkok.
