♥ Book Title : Bring Out Your Dead
☯ Full Synopsis : "The work of the Renaissance humanists comes to life in Anthony Grafton's exploration of the primary sources and modern scholarship, classical and modern elements in the world of European letters from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century. Tracing the ties that bound the world of humanistic learning in early modern Europe to other social and cultural spheres, Grafton defines the current state of the art of scholarship on early modern European cultural and intellectual history while simultaneously demonstrating how entertaining, enlightening, and relevant that history can be. Covering a dazzling variety of topics and authors as different as Alberti and Descartes, Grafton maps the grand and meticulous efforts of the past to connect the realm of nature with that of books, the realm of everyday experience with that of passionate reading in massive tomes, and the realm of codes of etiquette and institutions with that of extravagant and joyous erudition--efforts that this book itself brilliantly carries on."Article| Anthony Grafton| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : ""The literature of pandemics is rich and revealing. The virus in question may change but human nature remains the same whether it is in response to the Black Plague of 1348 or the Covid-19 virus of 2020. The history and literature of pandemics teaches us that 1) we are not alone--our responses have been the same as all people at all times when an epidemic visits seemingly out of nowhere; 2) we will get through this--however apocalyptic this crisis seems at the moment, the day will come when we look back on this serenely as one of the defining moments of our lives; 3) we are extremely fortunate to live when we do because we understand viruses, know how they spread, and have the capacity to develop vaccines to overcome them; 4) the humanities help us cope by 'placing' our concerns in a much larger context of history and literature"--Amazon.com."Article| Clay Jenkinson| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Thousands of years ago, a spontaneous mutation resulted in a new species of mankind; more powerful, far more intelligent, and more capable than ourselves. Imbued with physical characteristics that set them apart from everyone else on earth, the Otherswere viewed as demons or evil. The offspring of parents carrying the mutant genes, the Otherswere feared, despised, and ultimately hunted by a powerful, secretive organization called the Venice Protectorate, the sole purpose of which was to kill all of the Others as soon as they were born. Over centuries, the Protectorate succeeded in destroying virtually all who carried the mutant genes. The time of the Others is over until a brilliant young geneticist, Jane Becker, finds evidence of the Others and locates a source of pure mutant DNA. Now Dr. Becker must decide whether to genetically reengineer the Others or let them die out before the Protectorate finds her. The fate of the world hangs in the balance as Bring Out Your Dead races to its thrilling conclusion."Article| Terry Ryan| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Bringing Out the Dead
☯ Full Synopsis : "Perhaps only someone who has worked for almost a decade as a medic in New York City's Hell's Kitchen--as Joe Connelly has--could write a novel as riveting and fiercely authentic as Bringing Out the Dead. Like a front-line reporter, Connelly writes from deep within the experience, and the result is a debut novel of extraordinary power and intensity. In Frank Pierce, a brash EMS medic working the streets of Hell's Kitchen, Connelly gives us a man who is being destroyed by the act of saving people. Addicted to the thrill ("the best drug in the world") and the mission of the job, Frank is nevertheless drowning in five years' worth of grief and guilt--his own and others': "my primary role was less about saving lives than about bearing witness." His wife has left him, he's drinking on the job, and just a month ago he "helped to kill" an eighteen-year-old asthmatic girl. Now she's become the waking nightmare of all his failures: hallucination and projection ("the ghosts that once visited my dreams had followed me out to the street and were now talking back"), and as real to him as his own skin. And in reaction to her death, Frank has desperately resurrected a patient back into a life now little better than death. In a narrative that moves with the furious energy of an ambulance run, we follow Frank through two days and nights: into the excitement and dread of the calls; the mad humor that keeps the medics afloat; the memories, distant and recent, through which Frank reminds himself why he became a medic and tries, in vain, to convince himself to give it up. And we are with him as he faces his newest ghost: the resurrected patient, whose demands to be released into death might be the most sensible thing Frank has heard in months, if only he would listen. Bringing Out the Dead is a stunning novel."Article| Joe Connelly| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "It is Winter Carnival in Quebec City, bitterly cold and surpassingly beautiful. Chief Inspector Armand Gamache has come not to join the revels but to recover from an investigation gone hauntingly wrong. But violent death is inescapable, even in the apparent sanctuary of the Literary and Historical Society— where an obsessive historian's quest for the remains of the founder of Quebec, Samuel de Champlain, ends in murder. Could a secret buried with Champlain for nearly 400 years be so dreadful that someone would kill to protect it? Although he is supposed to be on leave, Gamache cannot walk away from a crime that threatens to ignite long-smoldering tensions between the English and the French. Meanwhile, he is receiving disquieting letters from the village of Three Pines, where beloved Bistro owner Olivier was recently convicted of murder. "It doesn't make sense," Olivier's partner writes every day. "He didn't do it, you know." As past and present collide in this astonishing novel, Gamache must relive the terrible event of his own past before he can bury his dead."Article| Louise Penny| Statement ..."
