Brooks, G: Secret Chord
26,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

LONGLISTED FOR THE BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2016 With more than two million copies of her novels sold, New York Times bestselling author Geraldine Brooks has achieved both popular and critical acclaim. Now, Brooks takes on one of literature's richest and most enigmatic figures: a man who shimmers between history and legend. Peeling away the myth to bring David to life in Second Iron Age Israel, Brooks traces the arc of his journey from obscurity to fame, from shepherd to soldier, from hero to traitor, from beloved king to murderous despot and into his remorseful and diminished dotage. The Secret Chord provides new context for some of the best-known episodes of David's life while also focusing on others, even more remarkable and emotionally intense, that have been neglected. We see David through the eyes of those who love him or fear him - from the prophet Natan, voice of his conscience, to his wives Mikal, Avigail and Batsheva, and finally to Solomon, the late-born son who redeems his Lear-like old age. Brooks has an uncanny ability to hear and transform characters from history, and this beautifully written, unvarnished saga of faith, desire, family, ambition, betrayal, and power will enthral her many fans.

Stephen Shore: From Galilee to the Negev
127,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Acclaimed photographer Stephen Shore (b.1947) turns his distinctive style of documentary photography to Israel and the Palestinian territories of the West Bank in this deeply personal and evocative new collection. A photographic journey - starting in the north at Mount Hermon, travelling down through Tel Aviv to the Gaza border, through Jerusalem, and into the West Bank, through the Negev and ending at the Red Sea - creates a living portrait of a beautiful yet contradictory place. Shore′s photographs, many published here for the first time, draw attention to the minutiae of everyday life that are often overlooked, from peeling posters on public noticeboards, to archaeological sites mid-dig, to graffiti on storefronts. Features essays from a range of eminent writers, including Yotam Ottolenghi and the New Yorker′s Jane Kramer, each a response to one of Shore′s photographs.
