Blood kin by Ceridwen Dovey( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in Italian and held by 1 library worldwide
Rarely does a debut novel attract the sweeping critical acclaim of Ceridwen Dovey's Blood Kin. Shortlisted for two prestigious awards, this tale centers around a military coup in an unnamed country, with characters who have no names or any identifying physical characteristics. Known simply as the ex-President's chef, barber, and portrait painter, these three men perform their mundane tasks and appear unaware of the atrocities of their employer's regime. But when the President is deposed, the trio are revealed as less than innocent. A deeply chilling yet sensual novel, Blood Kin illustrates Lord Acton's famous quip, "Absolute power corrupts absolutely," and marks the beginning of an illustrious literary career

This ebook features a new illustrated biography of Susan Minot, including artwork by the author and rare documents and photos from her personal collection
Escapade by Evelyn Scott( Book )
1 edition published in 1988 in Italian and held by 1 library worldwide
While offering a chronicle of the runaways' Brazilian interlude, Escapade is a tale both literary and autobiographical, filled with striking imagery and written in a style that is audacious and extraordinary modern. Indeed, in many ways the book anticipates Scott's 1929 modernist masterpiece The Wave, widely considered to be one of the greatest Civil War novels ever written. Though present-day readers are unlikely to be shocked by the adulterous liaison depicted here, they will find much of interest - and much to admire - in this spare but beautiful account of one woman's daring rejection of the mores of her time
