Ordesa (eBook, ePUB)
14,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Ordesa - a small Spanish town in the Pyrenees - is where our narrator was born, a place his father loved dearly, a place suffused with memories. Now, forty-six years later, he returns to the valley with his own children on a summer vacation. His parents are dead, his marriage has ended and he's struggling to piece together the bits of himself. Single and living in an apartment he hates, clinging to snatched moments of quality time with his apathetic children, newly sober and with his career on the wane, the ghosts of the narrator's family besiege him, but also bring him hope. Out of despair, he writes this chronicle, this homage, this memoir of his family: grandparents whose photos were never taken, whose funerals were never attended, parents unable to show their love. Maybe the tragedy of life itself is not death, but truly realising the importance of family only once they've passed. Perhaps this trip to Ordesa can help him fall in love with life - his life - once more. A masterwork of autofiction from Spanish literary icon Manuel Vilas, Ordesa is a deeply moving meditation on identity, nationality, family, loss and the passing of time.

Read the "rollickingly good literary thriller" and New York Times Bestseller -- and watch the HBO Limited Series starting October 25 and starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant. Grace Reinhart Sachs is living the only life she ever wanted for herself. Devoted to her husband, a pediatric oncologist at a major cancer hospital, their young son Henry, and the patients she sees in her therapy practice, her days are full of familiar things: she lives in the very New York apartment in which she was raised, and sends Henry to the school she herself once attended. Dismayed by the ways in which women delude themselves, Grace is also the author of a book You Should Have Known, in which she cautions women to really hear what men are trying to tell them. But weeks before the book is published a chasm opens in her own life: a violent death, a missing husband, and, in the place of a man Grace thought she knew, only an ongoing chain of terrible revelations. Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster, and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself.

Born in 1906, Huguette Clark grew up in her family's 121-room Beaux Arts mansion in New York and was one of the leading celebrities of her day. Her father, William Andrews Clark, was a copper magnate, the second richest man in America, and not above bribing his way into the Senate. Huguette attended the coronation of King George V. And at 22, with a personal fortune of $50 million to her name, she married a Princeton man and childhood friend, William MacDonald Gower. Two-years later the couple divorced. After a series of failed romances, Huguette began to withdraw from society - first living with her mother in a kind of Grey Gardens isolation, then as a modern-day Miss Havisham, spending her days in a vast apartment overlooking Central Park, eating crackers and watching The Flintstones with only servants for company. All her money and all her real estate could not protect her in her later life from being manipulated by shady hangers-on and hospitals that were only too happy to admit (and bill) a healthy woman. But what happened to Huguette that turned a vivacious, young socialite into a recluse? And what was her life like inside that gilded, copper cage? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bernadette Dunne.

A poignant and painfully funny novel about the New York art world by the acclaimed author of Although of Course You End up Becoming Yourself. For two first-class years, Joan Freeley had it all: the perfect family, the best art dealer in Manhattan, and the admiration of famous friends. Her adoring husband and two handsome sons attended her first gallery show in matching khakis and blue blazers. "An Interesting Talent Makes Its Debut," declared the New York Times. Then, as if her success were nothing more than a booking error, Joan's life got downgraded. A brutal divorce led to paintings too bitter to sell and a career stuck firmly in coach. Unable to see her suffer alone any longer, Joan's teenage son Richard leaves his father and older brother in Los Angeles and moves in to her one-bedroom apartment in SoHo. At the gallery openings where she used to be a star, Richard discovers just how much his mother's light has dimmed. She is an artist who is not showing - she might as well be invisible. To acknowledge her is to acknowledge the thin line between success and failure in a world as superficial as it is intoxicating. Richard immediately devotes himself to returning his mother to her former glory. Everything about him - the clothes he wears, the jokes he makes, the college he attends - is calculated to boost Joan's reputation. But as the years go by and the galleries keep sending back her slides, Richard has to ask: Who wants Joan Freeley's resurrection more - him or her? And when will his own life start? 1.

Lou D’Addio passed away on July 14, 2014, at the age of 98 and a half. He was truly a great man and a wonderful role model for others. Throughout his life, when he saw an injustice, he acted against it. Lou was always for the underdog or those that were disadvantaged. He was a notable figure in the Washington DC area in the civil rights movement and the Catholic interracial apostolate at St. Peter Claver Center and the Madonna House. He once walked out of a café with the group he was seated with, when they refused to serve one of their group who was a black man. His maid of honor at his wedding was a black woman, quite noteworthy for 1952. He later got involved in the pro-life movement. He once suffered arrest through nonviolent civil disobedience which closed down an abortion clinic as part of Operation Rescue. He frequently said the rosary in front of abortion clinics. At the end of his life, he joined the Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation, which works to improve the plight of Palestinian Christians. At that time, he made three trips to the Holy Land. He also was a volunteer at the Catholic Information Center, which operates under the Archdiocese of Washington, DC. A highlight of his life was a visit to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico. He brought back a full-length image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which he framed and which graced his apartment for the rest of his life. He attended daily mass. His favorite restaurant was the Pines of Rome in Bethesda, MD. He passed away peacefully at the Bartholomew House Assisted Living Facility, with his loving daughter Terry at his side. One of the last things he said was: “People need to love each other more.” 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Leonard.
