Shining by Stephen King Summary

Situé dans les montagnes Rocheuses, l’Overlook Hotel est tenu pour être l’un des plus beaux lieux du monde. Beauté, confort, luxe, volupté...L’hiver, l’hôtel est fermé, coupé du monde par le froid, la neige, les glaces. Seul l’habite un gardien. Cet hiver-là, c’est Jack Torrance, un alcoolique qui tente d’échapper à l’échec et au désespoir. Il est venu accompagné de sa femme, Wendy, qui espère, grâce à cet isolement, reconstruire son foyer menacé, et de leur enfant, Danny. Mais Danny possède le don de sentir, de voir, de ressusciter les choses et les êtres à jamais disparus. Dans les cent dix chambres vides de l’Overlook, le démon est omniprésent. Cauchemar ou réalité, le corps de cette femme assassinée, ces bruits de fête qui derivent dans les couloirs, cette vie si étrange qui anime l’hôtel ? Stephen King est considéré dans le monde entier comme le maître de la littérature d’épouvante. Shining – dont Docteur Sleep est la suite – demeure son roman le plus célèbre, adapté prodigieusement par Stanley Kubrick, avec Jack Nicholson dans le rôle principal. Traduit de l’anglais (États-Unis) par Joan Bernard.

Doctor Sleep by Stephen King Summary

Now a major motion picture starring Ewan McGregor! From master storyteller Stephen King, his unforgettable and terrifying sequel to The Shining—an instant #1 New York Times bestseller that is “[a] vivid frightscape” (The New York Times). Years ago, the haunting of the Overlook Hotel nearly broke young Dan Torrance’s sanity, as his paranormal gift known as “the shining” opened a door straight into hell. And even though Dan is all grown up, the ghosts of the Overlook—and his father’s legacy of alcoholism and violence—kept him drifting aimlessly for most of his life. Now, Dan has finally found some order in the chaos by working in a local hospice, earning the nickname “Doctor Sleep” by secretly using his special abilities to comfort the dying and prepare them for the afterlife. But when he unexpectedly meets twelve-year-old Abra Stone—who possesses an even more powerful manifestation of the shining—the two find their lives in sudden jeopardy at the hands of the ageless and murderous nomadic tribe known as the True Knot, reigniting Dan’s own demons and summoning him to battle for this young girl’s soul and survival...

Doctor Sleep by Madison Smartt Bell Summary

Madison Smartt Bell is one of the most versatile and gifted authors of his generation, a literary stylist with few peers. Doctor Sleep, one of his best novels, is a taut and satisfying psychological thriller planned to be released as a major motion picture under the title Hypnotic. Adrian Strother is a hypnotherapist who, paradoxically, can't get to sleep. He plies his trade in a depressed section of London, doing the occasional job for Scotland Yard, which brings him into contact with an unsavory drug trafficker. As little girls become the target of a serial killer, Adrian treads the line between tortured wakefulness and surreal sleep, and the gifts of his insomnia are called upon to unlock the secrets of a man who believes he has discovered the key to immortality. Part spiritual pilgrimage, part thriller, Doctor Sleep is witty, menacing, and deeply satisfying, a bravura performance by one of today's finest writers.

Doctor Sleep (versione italiana) by Stephen King Summary

LA STORIA DI SHINING HA UN NUOVO CAPITOLO DA QUESTO ROMANZO IL FILM ORA AL CINEMA Danny Torrance è cresciuto. E anche i suoi demoni. Perseguitato dalle visioni provocate dallo shining, la luccicanza, il dono maledetto con il quale è nato, e dai fantasmi dei vecchi ospiti dell'Overlook Hotel dove ha trascorso un terribile inverno da bambino, Dan ha continuato a vagabondare per decenni. Una disperata vita on the road per liberarsi da un'eredità paterna fatta di alcolismo, violenza e depressione. Oggi, finalmente, è riuscito a mettere radici in una piccola città del New Hampshire, dove ha trovato un gruppo di amici in grado di aiutarlo e un lavoro nell'ospizio in cui quel che resta della sua luccicanza regala agli anziani pazienti l'indispensabile conforto finale. Aiutato da un gatto capace di prevedere il futuro, Torrance diventa Doctor Sleep, il Dottor Sonno. Poi Dan incontra l'evanescente Abra Stone, il cui incredibile dono, la luccicanza più abbagliante di tutti i tempi, riporta in vita i demoni di Dan e lo spinge a ingaggiare una poderosa battaglia per salvare l'esistenza e l'anima della ragazza. Sulle superstrade d'America, infatti, i membri del Vero Nodo viaggiano in cerca di cibo. Hanno un aspetto inoffensivo: non più giovani, indossano abiti dimessi e sono perennemente in viaggio sui loro camper scassati. Ma come intuisce Dan Torrance, e come imparerà presto a sue spese la piccola Abra Stone, si tratta in realtà di esseri quasi immortali che si nutrono proprio del calore dello shining. Uno scontro epico tra il bene e il male, una storia agghiacciante e meravigliosa, un ritorno al fantastico e all'horror dei primi lavori di King. Doctor Sleep inquieta e fa paura, ma soprattutto commuove ed emoziona.

The Cinema of Béla Tarr by András B. Kovács Summary

The Cinema of Béla Tarr is a critical analysis of the work of Hungary's most prominent and internationally best known film director, written by a scholar who has followed Bela Tarr's career through a close personal and professional relationship for more than twenty-five years. András Bálint Kovács traces the development of Tarr's themes, characters, and style, showing that almost all of his major stylistic and narrative innovations were already present in his early films and that through a conscious and meticulous recombination of and experimentation with these elements, Tarr arrived at his unique style. The significance of these films is that, beyond their aesthetic and historical value, they provide the most powerful vision of an entire region and its historical situation. Tarr's films express, in their universalistic language, the shared feelings of millions of Eastern Europeans.

Charm City by Madison Smartt Bell Summary

With a writer’s keen eye, a longtime resident’s familiarity, and his own sly wit, acclaimed novelist Madison Smartt Bell leads us on a walk through his adopted hometown of Baltimore, a city where crab cakes, Edgar Allan Poe, hair extensions, and John Waters movies somehow coexist. From its founding before the Revolutionary War to its place in popular culture—thanks to seminal films like Barry Levinson’s Diner, the television show Homicide, and bestselling books by George Pelecanos and Laura Lippman—Baltimore is America, and in Charm City, Bell brings its story to vivid life. First revealing how Baltimore received some of its nicknames—including “Charm City”—Bell sets off from his neighborhood of Cedarcroft and finds his way across the city’s crossroads, joined periodically by a host of fellow Baltimoreans. Exploring Baltimore’s prominent role in history (it was here that Washington planned the battle of Yorktown and Francis Scott Key witnessed the “bombs bursting in air”), Bell takes us to such notable spots as the Inner Harbor and Federal Hill, as well as many of the undiscovered corners that give Baltimore its distinctive character. All the while, Charm City sheds deserved light onto a sometimes overlooked, occasionally eccentric, but always charming place. From the Hardcover edition.

Blindly by Claudio Magris Summary

Who is the mysterious narrator of "Blindly"? Clearly a recluse and a fugitive, but what more of him can we discern? Baffled by the events of his own life, he muses, "When I write, and even now when I think back on it, I hear a kind of buzzing, blathered words that I can barely understand, gnats droning around a table lamp, that I have to continually swat away with my hand, so as not to lose the thread." Claudio Magris, one of Europe's leading authors and cultural philosophers, offers as narrator of "Blindly" a madman. Yes, but a "pazzo lucido, " a lucid madman, a single narrative voice populated by various characters. He is Jorgen Jorgenson, the nineteenth-century adventurer who became king of Iceland but was condemned to forced labor in the Antipodes. He is also Comrade Cippico, a militant anti-communist, imprisoned for years in Tito's gulag on the island Goli Otok. And he is the many partisans, prisoners, sailors, and stowaways who have encountered the perils of travel, war, and adventure. In a shifting choral monologue--part confession, part psychiatric session--a man remembers (invents, falsifies, hides, screams out) his life, a voyage into the nether regions of history, and in particular the twentieth century.

The Heart of Valor by Tanya Huff Summary

The third installment in Tanya Huff's action-packed military sci-fi adventure Confederation series Gunnery Sergeant Torin Kerr was a Confederation Marine’s marine. She’d survived more deadly encounters—and kept more of her officers and enlisteds alive—than anyone in the Corps, and she was determined to keep the record intact. But since her last mission, she’d been sidelined into endless briefings and debriefings with no end in sight. So, of course, she’d jumped at the chance to go to the Crucible—the Marine Corps training planet—as temporary aide to Major Svensson. The major had been reduced to little more than a brain and spinal cord in his last combat, and he and his doctor were anxious to field test his newly re-grown body. It should have been an easy twenty-day run. After all, Crucible was only set up to simulate battle situations so recruits could be trained safely. But they were barely on-planet when someone started blasting the training scenarios to smithereens. And suddenly Kerr found herself not only responsible for the major and his doctor, but caught in a desperate fight to keep a platoon of Marine recruits alive until someone discovered what was happening on Crucible....
