I'm Not Scared, Ammaniti, Niccolo
2 Ammaniti, Niccolo I'm Not Scared
Australia Text Publishing 2004 187700846X / 9781877008467 Reprint Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
215 pages. Translated from the Italian as: "Io non ho paura" which was first published by Giulio Einaudi Editore 2001. Winner of the prestigious 2001 Viareggio-Repaci Prize for Fiction. 1978, the hottest summer of the twentieth century. In a tiny Italian rural community, the adults shelter indoors while six children venture out on their bikes across the scorched, deserted countryside. In the midst of a sea of golden wheat, nine-year-old Michele Amitrano discovers a secret so momentous, so terrible, that he dare not tell anyone about it. To come to terms with what he finds, he will have to draw strength from his own imagination and sense of humanity. The reader witnesses a dual story: the one that is seen through Michele's eyes, and the tragedy involving the adults of this isolated hamlet. The result is an immensely powerful, lyrical and skilfully narrated novel, reminiscent of such classics as Stand By Me, To Kill a Mockingbird andThe Adventures of Tom Sawyer. A compelling and utterly absorbing read, I'm Not Scared reinforces Ammaniti's status as a major literary talent. Winner of the Viareggio-Repaci Prize for Literature. Niccolo Ammaniti has written two collections of short stories and six novels, four of which have been translated into English. He was the youngest ever winner of the Italian Viareggio Literary Prize for Fiction for his best-selling novel I'm Not Scared,which has been translated into thirty-five languages. The Crossroads received the Premio Strega Prize in 2007, Italy's equivalent to the Booker Prize. Review: This gripping American debut by Italian novelist Ammaniti captures well the vagaries of childhood: the shifting alliances, the casual betrayals and the mix of helplessness and earnest audacity with which children confront adult situations. Nine-year-old Michele Amitrano lives with his little sister, devoted mother and distant father in a rural Italian hamlet consisting of five dilapidated houses. In the sweltering summer of 1978, he and a group of his friends strike out on their bikes across the barren, scorched hills. While exploring an abandoned house, Michele discovers what he believes to be the dead body of a boy his own age. He cannot bring himself to tell his friends. When he tries to tell his father, the elder Amitrano brushes him off. Drawn back to the site, Michele discovers that the boy is not dead, but weak, disoriented and unable to account for his presence there. Michele brings the boy food and water and slowly learns more about him. The boy's story-which includes kidnapping and ransom-are too much for a nine-year-old to fathom and involve virtually every adult in the tiny community. Yet Michele decides that he must do something to help the boy. Part mystery, part morality play, the novel is written in simple, spare prose. The characters, particularly that of Michele, spring to life, and the story builds to a heart-stopping climax. Readers will find this accomplished work hard to put down and even harder to forget. (Feb.) Forecast: This novel was a bestseller in Italy, and while that doesn't usually translate into U.S. sales, Ammaniti's masterful use of suspense should help win him an American following. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information. 'Niccolo Ammaniti is the best novelist of his generation.' Il Giornale 'Ammaniti, one of the most admired figures on the Italian fiction scene...uses short sentences like the cracks of a whip and sharp paragraphs to make our hearts race and carry us to the edge of the abyss.' ABC, Spain 'Ammaniti is a born story-teller.' L'Unita 'Readers will find this accomplished work hard to put down and even harder to forget.' Publishers Weekly 'A tense, breathless book, written with self-confidence and vitality.' La Stampa 'Readable in one breath...moving, impressive, amazing. It reminds you of Italo Calvino, but a Calvino warmed by a humanity that is not afraid to roll around in the mud.' Panorama 'Confirms his extraordinary narrative talent, over which he superimposes an atmosphere of horror and marvel.' (Le Monde.)

Body of Evidence: What the Post-Mortem Revealed: 40 Years as a Forensic Pathologist, Bowen, David
6 Bowen, David Body of Evidence: What the Post-Mortem Revealed: 40 Years as a Forensic Pathologist
UK Robinson Pub 2003 1841197394 / 9781841197395 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
260 indexed pages including b/w illustrations. Without sensationalism but with a generous dusting of dark forensic humour, David Bowen writes of the trial-making and breaking clues he uncovered during his 40 years as one of London's key forensic pathologists. Following in the footsteps of pioneers such as Bernard Spilsbury and Keith Simpson, it was Bowen who was the first to identify the true nature of the chicken bones found in Denis Nilsen's drain after a complaint by his neighbour and it was Bowen who led the investigation into the grisly contents of the black rubbish bags found in Nilsen's home. In these memoirs we find Bowen's take on many of the famous and challenging cases he worked on, including the tragic Railway Murders of the 1960s; the unsolved London Nude Murders of the 1960s; the baffling death of Robert Calvi, chairman of Italy's largest bank, found hanging from Blackfriars Bridge; the frustrating PC Keith Blakelock case; and the mystery surrounding the apparent Second World War defector Rudolf Hess.

The Ghost in the Atom: A Discussion of the Mysteries of Quantum Physics, Davies, P. C. W.;Brown, J. R.
15 Davies, P. C. W.;Brown, J. R. The Ghost in the Atom: A Discussion of the Mysteries of Quantum Physics
UK Cambridge Univ Pr 1993 0521457289 / 9780521457286 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
157 indexed pages where 9 prominent physicists discuss the foundations of quantum physics: its paradoxes; and its profound implications for the theory of nature. Anybody who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it. Niels Bohr's dictum bears witness to the bewildering impact of quantum theory, flying in the face of classical physics and dramatically transforming scientists' outlook on our relationship with the material world. While the theory has been supremely successful in its explanation of some of the major problems in twentieth-century physics, its meaning (presenting a number of basic philosophical contradictions) is nevertheless the subject of unprecedented controversy amongst scientists. In this book, which has its origin in a series of radio broadcasts, Paul Davies interviews eight physicists involved in debating and testing the theory, with radically different views of its significance. Table of Contents: Foreword; 1. The strange world of the quantum; 2. Alain Aspect; 3. John Bell; 4. John Wheeler; 5. Rudolf Peierls; 6. David Deutsch; 7. John Taylor; 8. David Bohm; 9. Basil Hiley; Glossary; Further reading. eviews: 'Paul Davies' summary ... is one of the clearest short expositions of quantum theory I have ever read.' New Scientist 'For those puzzled by the mystery of Schrodinger's 'dead and alive' cat, or intrigued by the idea of parallel universes, this is a must.' The Good Book Guide 'Paul Davies' summary - well worth the price of the book - is one of the clearest short expositions of quantum theory I have ever read. But the best is yet to come. In the interviews we hear physicists defending passionately some very bizarre views of the world ... seeing these questions through the eyes of the people who are actually struggling to answer them offers an exciting firsthand glimpse into this fundamental and controversial field of enquiry.' New Scientist 'Non-specialists will find this an attractive and thought-provoking book.' Contemporary Physics.

Sheer Grace: Living the Mystery of God, Dizdar, Drasko
17 Dizdar, Drasko Sheer Grace: Living the Mystery of God
U.S.A. Paulist Pr 2008 0809145170 / 9780809145171 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
218 indexed pages about doing liturgy as theology, and about a way of doing theology through liturgy as something that God does; and invites us to participate in as fully, consciously and actively as we are able. Liturgical renewal is the gift of the ever ancient, ever new Spirit that God offers us, not our task of rubric reform; and liturgical restoration is about God giving us back our divine destiny as creatures who are being ever created anew in the image and likeness of God, not an escape into a dead past. Sheer Grace tries to show not just the "link between" but the indissolubility of theology, liturgy, and spirituality; and it does so by grounding it in a radical tradition of liturgy as transformation that has its roots in the scriptures and the lived liturgical experience of our biblical and ecclesial ancestors. At the same time it looks to the present experience of Christians who feel a deep and largely unmet need for that same kind of transforming experience that liturgy can be; and it looks to the future with hope as a gift of "sheer grace," as something only God can and does give, and not as something we can manufacture by our own efforts at renewal or restoration.
