Аннотация

This book is pure art. When you are done reading you can hang it on your wall. Werner's writing, which novelist Thomas McGuane has described as «original» and «grounded,» resonates with the prose of Hemingway and McCarthy, as well as with the poetry of Rilke, Whitman, Roethke, and James Wright. This title will appeal to the literary environmental crowd. A short but epic tale, much like Jim Harrison's LEGENDS OF THE FALL, this novel will transport any avid reader to another time and place.Because of its excellent, polished, modern prose, we are also positioning the title to be used in creative writing courses in MFA programs.The author won the 2008 Utah Arts Council's Original Writing Competition for Nonfiction. Mr. Werner's poems, fiction, creative nonfiction, and essays have appeared in several journals and magazines, including Matter Journal: Edward Abbey Edition, Bright Lights Film Journal, The North American Review, ISLE, Weber Studies, Fly Rod and Reel, and Columbia.

Аннотация

История пустоши, мира, выжженного ядерной войной, через истории о людях, которые, несмотря на разрушенный мир, остаются людьми. Все они, брошенные обществом, отщепенцы и бродяги, бредущие по пустыни жизни, ищущие свое место в этом новом мире. Это история о добре и зле, жизни и смерти, человеке и пустоши, а еще это история о рыцарях и драконах. Содержит нецензурную брань.

Аннотация

События происходят в 1848–1850 годах в независимой Калифорнийской республике в разгар «золотой лихорадки», начавшейся в 1848 году. В основе сюжета лежит расследование серии устрашающе жестоких убийств, совершенных загадочным Черным Дьяволом. Однако «Золото под ногами» – не только классический детектив, но и приключенческий роман, где следствие проходит одновременно с многочисленными событиями авантюрного характера. Вы еще помните тот чистый восторг, который охватывал вас при первом чтении книг Фенимора Купера и Майн Рида? Вы, конечно, думаете, что эти ощущения не вернуть. А вот и нет. Иногда они возвращаются. В «Золоте под ногами» есть все, что пленяло нас в детстве, – и индейцы, и следопыты, и трапперы, и пираты, и страшные американские бандиты, и золотодобытчики, и даже мистическая нечистая сила… Причем написана эта книга современным динамичным русским языком.
