Agosto 2004. Archy si prende cura di un neonato non suo per allenarsi ad accudire il primo figlio in arrivo. L’amico e socio Nat rimugina sui presagi di sventura che aleggiano attorno al loro negozio di dischi, il Brokeland Records, tempio dei vinili usati tra Berkeley e Oakland. Le loro mogli Gwen e Aviva, ostetriche a cui si deve l’ingresso nel mondo di un migliaio di concittadini, raggiungono una paziente per un parto difficile in una casa di legno affacciata sul canyon. Julie, figlio quindicenne di Nat e Aviva, si innamora di Titus, venuto dal Texas e dal passato di Archy. Attorno a loro, una ragazza etiope con occhi da cerbiatta e dita che odorano di spezie, un impresario di pompe funebri abituato a immaginare una lapide appropriata per ogni persona che incontra…

Princes ou bandits, ils font la paire : Zelikman, médecin mélancolique à l’esprit dangereusement acéré et Amram, géant noir à la langue aussi affûtée que la hache qui ne le quitte jamais. Vivant de subterfuges, ils tracent leur route à travers les monts du Caucase, vers l’an 950. Rien ne les a cependant préparés à se transformer en défenseurs d’un prince de l’Empire khazar, un jeune héritier inexpérimenté brûlant de reconquérir son trône. Un tel projet nécessite une ruse sans limites et une folle témérité. Zelikman et Amram ne manquent ni de l’une ni de l’autre. Mais sont-ils prêts à sacrifier leur insouciance pour devenir les généraux d’une révolution d’envergure ?.

Chabon, Michael - Wonder Boys
Unabridged Library Edition | 1995 | ISBN: 1561002518 | MP3/64 kbps | 448 MB

Mixing comic, even slapstick, events with the serious theme of bright promise gone awry, Chabon has produced an impeccably constructed novel that sparkles with inventiveness and wit neatly permeated with rue. The once-promising eponymous "wonder boys" are Grady Tripp and Terry Crabtree, friends since college, where they both determined to make their mark in literature. Now they are self-destructive adults whose rare meetings occasion an eruption of zany events. Narrator Grady, a professor/novelist whose unfinished work-in-progress, Wonder Boys, stands at 2000-plus endlessly revised pages, has destroyed three marriages through compulsive philandering and a marijuana habit.

Chabon's storytelling, in this alternate history of a world where Jews were settled in Alaska after World War II, is vivid enough, with inventive metaphors packed in like tapestry threads, but Peter Riegert's versatile voice makes the invented society even more tangible. Told through the eyes of Meyer Landsman, a police detective investigating a murder, the novel occurs in a strange time to be a Jew, as several characters ruefully put it: the special Jewish district will soon be controlled by Alaska again. In a bonus interview on the last disc, Chabon relates his desire to write about a place where Yiddish was an official language.

Roused out of retirement, a former detective, now a beekeeper, is identified only as "the old man." The story opens in the summer of 1944 when he sees a boy with a parrot on his shoulder walking along the train tracks. The boy is Linus Steinman, a refugee from Nazi Germany who lives with Mr. and Mrs. Panicker and their grown son in their boardinghouse. Though Linus doesn't speak, his parrot, Bruno, recites strings of numbers in German, as well as bits of poetry and snatches of songs. When a boarder is murdered and Bruno is kidnapped, the local police try to engage the beekeeper in helping them solve the crimes. He agrees to help, but only to find the bird. Thus begins his last case, his "final solution."

Publisher: Night Shade Books | ISBN: 1597801895 | edition 2010 | PDF | 183 pages | 1,49 mb

The devil appears in many guises in these stories and fables collected by science fiction and fantasy writer Tim Pratt. He's often nattily dressed in sharkskin or a pinstriped double-breasted suit with fedora, or, as in Stephen King's story, a simple black suit with gold watch chain. Whatever his appetites, for tasty little boys, nuclear destruction, or a little fun with a bored teenager on a summer afternoon, with his knacks for shape-changing and time/space travel, the devil doesn't play fair.

Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards and an Edgar Award finalist.

At once a gripping whodunit, a love story, an homage to 1940s noir, and an exploration of the mysteries of exile and redemption, The Yiddish Policemen's Union is a novel only Michael Chabon could have written.
