Edmund Morris 5.0
Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best nonfiction books of all time

Thirty years ago, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. A collector’s item in its original edition, it has never been out of print as a paperback. This classic book is now reissued in hardcover, along with Theodore Rex, to coincide with the publication of Colonel Roosevelt, the third and concluding volume of Edmund Morris’s definitive trilogy on the life of the twenty-sixth President.

Although Theodore Rex fully recounts TR’s years in the White House (1901–1909), The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt begins with a brilliant Prologue describing the President at the apex of his international prestige. That was on New Year’s Day, 1907, when TR, who had just won the Nobel Peace Prize, threw open the doors of the White House to the American people and shook 8,150 hands, more than any man before him. Morris re-creates the reception with such authentic detail that the reader gets almost as vivid an impression of TR as those who attended. One visitor remarked afterward, “You go to the White House, you shake hands with Roosevelt and hear him talk—and then you go home to wring the personality out of your clothes.”

The rest of this book tells the story of TR’s irresistible rise to power. (He himself compared his trajectory to that of a rocket.) It is, in effect, the biography of seven men—a naturalist, a writer, a lover, a hunter, a ranchman, a soldier, and a politician—who merged at age forty-two to become the youngest President in our history. Rarely has any public figure exercised such a charismatic hold on the popular imagination. Edith Wharton likened TR’s vitality to radium. H. G. Wells said that he was “a very symbol of the creative will in man.” Walter Lippmann characterized him simply as our only “lovable” chief executive.

During the years 1858–1901, Theodore Roosevelt, the son of a wealthy Yankee father and a plantation-bred southern belle, transformed himself from a frail, asthmatic boy into a full-blooded man. Fresh out of Harvard, he simultaneously published a distinguished work of naval history and became the fist-swinging leader of a Republican insurgency in the New York State Assembly. He had a youthful romance as lyrical—and tragic—as any in Victorian fiction. He chased thieves across the Badlands of North Dakota with a copy of Anna Karenina in one hand and a Winchester rifle in the other. Married to his childhood sweetheart in 1886, he became the country squire of Sagamore Hill on Long Island, a flamboyant civil service reformer in Washington, D.C., and a night-stalking police commissioner in New York City. As assistant secretary of the navy under President McKinley, he almost single-handedly brought about the Spanish-American War. After leading “Roosevelt’s Rough Riders” in the famous charge up San Juan Hill, Cuba, he returned home a military hero, and was rewarded with the governorship of New York. In what he called his “spare hours” he fathered six children and wrote fourteen books. By 1901, the man Senator Mark Hanna called “that damned cowboy” was vice president of the United States. Seven months later, an assassin’s bullet gave TR the national leadership he had always craved.

His is a story so prodigal in its variety, so surprising in its turns of fate, that previous biographers have treated it as a series of haphazard episodes. This book, the only full study of TR’s pre-presidential years, shows that he was an inevitable chief executive, and recognized as such in his early teens. His apparently random adventures were precipitated and linked by various aspects of his character, not least an overwhelming will. “It was as if he were subconsciously aware that he was a man of many selves,” the author writes, “and set about developing each one in turn, knowing that one day he would be President of all the people.”

Tom Wolfe 4.1
The men had it. Yeager. Conrad. Grissom. Glenn. Heroes ... the first Americans in space ... battling the Russians for control of the heavens ... putting their lives on the line.

The women had it. While Mr. Wonderful was aloft, it tore your heart out that the Hero's Wife, down on the ground, had to perform with the whole world watching ... the TV Press Conference: "What's in your heart? Do you feel with him while he's in orbit?"

The Right Stuff. It's the quality beyond bravery, beyond courage. It's men like Chuck Yeager, the greatest test pilot of all and the fastest man on earth. Pete Conrad, who almost laughed himself out of the running. Gus Grissom, who almost lost it when his capsule sank. John Glenn, the only space traveler whose apple-pie image wasn't a lie.

Но прошлое по-прежнему не дает ей покоя, душит и мешает жить.

James Baldwin 0.0
The stark grief of a brother mourning a brother opens this novel with a stunning, unforgettable experience. Here, in a monumental saga of love and rage, Baldwin goes back to Harlem, to the church of his groundbreaking novel Go Tell It on the Mountain, to the homosexual passion of Giovanni's Room, and to the political fire that enflames his nonfiction work. Here, too, the story of gospel singer Arthur Hall and his family becomes both a journey into another country of the soul and senses--and a living contemporary history of black struggle in this land.
Норман Мейлер 4.5
Arguably the greatest book from America's most heroically ambitious writer, THE EXECUTIONER'S SONG follows the short, blighted life of Gary Gilmore who became famous after he robbed two men in 1976 and killed them in cold blood. After being tried and convicted, he immediately insisted on being executed for his crime. To do so, he fought a system that seemed intent on keeping him alive long after it had sentenced him to death. And that fight for the right to die is what made him famous.

Mailer tells not only Gilmore's story, but those of the men and women caught in the web of his life and drawn into his procession toward the firing squad. All with implacable authority, steely compassion, and a restraint that evokes the parched landscape and stern theology of Gilmore's Utah. THE EXECUTIONER'S SONG is a trip down the wrong side of the tracks to the deepest source of American loneliness and violence. It is a towering achievement-impossible to put down, impossible to forget.
Филип Рот 4.2
В романе “Призрак писателя” впервые появляется альтер эго Филипа Рота: Натан Цукерман — блестящий, сумасшедший, противоречивый и неподражаемый герой девяти великолепных романов Рота. В 1956 году начинается история длиной почти в полвека.

Всего лишь одна ночь в чужом доме, неожиданное знакомство с загадочной красавицей Эми Беллет — и вот Цукерман, балансируя на грани реальности и вымысла, подозревает, что Эми вполне может оказаться Анной Франк…

Тайна личности Эми оставляет слишком много вопросов. Виртуозное мастерство автора увлекает нас в захватывающее приключение. В поисках ответов мы перелистываем главу за главой, книгу за книгой. Мы найдем разгадки вместе с Цукерманом лишь на страницах последней истории Рота о писателе и его призраках, когда в пожилой, больной даме узнаем непостижимую и обольстительную Эми Беллет…
Скотт Спенсер 3.4
Один из наиболее знаменитых романов своего времени, «Анатомия любви» остается, пожалуй, самым сильным произведением о первой любви. Завораживающая, прекрасно написанная, поражающая своей чувственностью история рассказывает о Дэвиде Аксельроде и его поглощающей страсти r Джейд Баттерфилд. Дэвид и Джейд не могут налюбоваться друг другом, и желания молодых людей заводят их гораздо дальше, чем они это осознают. И когда отец Джейд запрещает Дэвиду бывать у них дома, юноша решает, что получит прощение, если спасет семью Джейд от беды. Он решает устроить «безопасный» пожар на крыльце их дома. Но все оборачивается кошмаром. Любовь становится
преступлением. Мир наполняется анонимными телефонными звонками, безумными письмами и новыми страхами. В ожидании неизбежного наказания Дэвид не сомневается только в одном чувстве — своей бесконечной любви...
Книга была опубликована в 1979 году и провозглашена критиками «Нью-Йорк таймс» лучшим романом года. Она переведена более чем на 20 языков, ее тиражи в мире превысили два миллиона экземпляров. По словам обозревателей

Джон Ирвинг 4.1
Трагикомическая сага от знаменитого автора "Отеля Нью-Гэмпшир" и "Правил виноделов", "Мужчин не ее жизни" и "Последней ночи на Извилистой реке", "Сына цирка" и "Четвертой руки", панорамный бурлеск, сходный по размаху с "Бойней номер пять" Курта Воннегута или "Уловкой-22" Джозефа Хеллера. Именно "Мир глазами Гарпа" сделал Ирвинга современным классиком; роман был удостоен премии Национального книжного фонда, входил в шорт-лист Национальной книжной премии США, а также, по упорным слухам, и в шорт-лист Пулицеровской премии (оглашать Пулицеровские шорт-листы начали ровно со следующего премиального года). "Мир глазами Гарпа" — это современная сага о семье, живущей в нашем беспощадном мире, члены которой пытаются, каждый по-своему и с переменным успехом, обрести гармонию. Главный герой романа — писатель, скандально знаменитый как своими книгами, так и обстоятельствами своего появления на свет; его произведения, реалистичные и абсурдные, вплетены в ткань романа. Сам автор точнее всего определил отношение будущих читателей к книге: "Она, возможно, вызовет порой улыбку даже у самого мрачного типа, однако разобьет немало чересчур нежных сердец".

Marguerite Young 0.0
This novel is one of the most ambitious and remarkable literary achievements of our time. It is a picaresque, psychological novel--a novel of the road, a journey or voyage of the human spirit in its search for reality in a world of illusion and nightmare. It is an epic of what might be called the Arabian Nights of American life. Marguerite Young's method is poetic, imagistic, incantatory; in prose of extraordinary richness she tests the nature of her characters--and the nature of reality. Miss MacIntosh, My Darling is written with oceanic music moving at many levels of consciousness and perception; but the toughly fibred realistic fabric is always there, in the happenings of the narrative, the humor, the precise details, the definitions of the characters. Miss MacIntosh herself, who hails from What Cheer, Iowa, and seems downright and normal, with an incorruptible sense of humor and the desire to put an end to phantoms; Catherine Cartwheel, the opium lady, a recluse who is shut away in a great New England seaside house and entertains imaginary guests; Mr. Spitzer, the lawyer, musical composer and mystical space traveler, a gentle man, wholly unsure of himself and of reality; his twin brother Peron, the gay and raffish gambler and virtuoso in the world of sports; Cousin Hannah, the horsewoman, balloonist, mountain-climber and militant Boston feminist, known as Al Hamad through all the seraglios of the East; Titus Bonebreaker of Chicago, wild man of God dreaming of a heavenly crown; the very efficient Christian hangman, Mr. Weed of the Wabash River Valley; a featherweight champion who meets his equal in a graveyard--these are a few who live with phantasmagorical vividness in the pages of Miss MacIntosh, My Darling. The novel touches on many aspects of life--drug addiction, woman's suffrage, murder, suicide, pregnancy both real and imaginary, schizophrenia, many strange loves, the psychology of gambling, perfectionism; but the profusion of this huge book serves always to intensify the force of the central question: "What shall we do when, fleeing from illusion, we are confronted by illusion?" What is real, what is dream? Is the calendar of the human heart the same as that kept by the earth? Is it possible that one may live a secondary life of which one does not know? In every aspect, Miss MacIntosh, My Darling stands by itself--in the lyric beauty of its prose, its imaginative vitality and cumulative emotional power. It is the work of a writer of genius.

Beautiful girls always grace the Florida beaches, strolling, sailing, relaxing at the many parties on Travis McGee's houseboat, The Busted Flush. McGee was too smart--and had been around too long--for many of them to touch his heart. Now, however, there was Gretel. She had discovered the key to McGee--to all of him--and now he had something to hope for. Then, terribly, unexpectedly, she was dead. From a mysterious illness, or so they said.
