Описание: Legend of the American frontier Doc Holliday and his unforgettable girlfriend, Kate, take center stage in Mary Doria Russell's historical novel about the Wild West. Russell has now painted a fresh, imaginative, and historically accurate portrait of Holliday, who has been canonized by folklore and the silver screen. Capturing him at a moment in his life ripe with possibility and hope, rather than the violence and illness that would besiege him later on, Russell chronicles Doc and Kate's lives in Dodge City, Kansas, one memorable summer.

Born to the life of a Southern gentleman, Dr. John Henry Holliday arrives on the Texas frontier hoping that the dry air and sunshine of the West will restore him to health. Soon, with few job prospects, Doc Holliday is gambling professionally with his partner, Maria Katarina Harony, a high-strung, classically educated Hungarian whore. In search of high-stakes poker, the couple hits the saloons of Dodge City. And that is where the unlikely friendship of Doc Holliday and a fearless lawman named Wyatt Earp begins-- before the gunfight at the O.K. Corral links their names forever in American frontier mythology--when neither man wanted fame or deserved notoriety.

Описание: NEW YORK TIMESBESTSELLER - "A powerfully imagined novel . . . a] profoundly moving book that engages the heights and depths of human experience."--Los Angeles Times It is September 8, 1943, and fourteen-year-old Claudette Blum and her father are among the thousands of Jewish refugees scrambling over the Alps toward Italy, where they hope to find safety now that the Italians have broken from Germany and made a separate peace with the Allies. The Blums will soon discover that Italy is anything but peaceful, as it quickly becomes an open battleground for the Nazis, the Allies, Resistance fighters, Jews in hiding, and ordinary Italian civilians trying to survive. Tracing the lives of a handful of fascinating characters--a charismatic Italian Resistance leader, a priest, an Italian rabbi's family, a disillusioned German doctor--Mary Doria Russell tells the little-known story of the vast underground effort by Italian citizens who saved the lives of 43,000 Jews during the final phase of World War II. A Thread of Grace puts a human face on history. Praise for A Thread of Grace "An addictive page-turner . . . Mary Doria] Russell has an astonishing story to tell--full of action, paced like a rapid-fire thriller, in tense, vivid scenes that move with cinematic verve."--The Washington Post Book World "Hauntingly beautiful, utterly unforgettable."--San Francisco Chronicle "Rich . . . Based on the heroism of ordinary people, A Thread of Grace] packs an emotional punch."--People " A] deeply felt and compellingly written book . . . The progress of each character's life is marked or measured by acts of grace. . . . Russell is a smart, passionate and imaginative writer."--Cleveland Plain Dealer "A feat of storytelling . . . an important book that] needs to be widely read."--Portland Oregonian
"Mary Doria Russell's fans (and aren't we all?) will rejoice to see her new novel on the shelves. A Thread of Grace is as ambitious, beautiful, tense, and transforming as any of us could have hoped."--Karen Joy Fowler, author of The Jane Austen Book Club
"A story of love and war, A Thread of Grace speaks to the resilience and beauty of the human spirit in the midst of unimaginable horror. It is, unquestionably, a literary triumph."--David Morrell, author of The Brotherhood of the Rose and First Blood

A richly detailed novel of the infamous gunfight at the O.K. Corral and the making of the mythology that surrounds it to this day
A deeply divided nation. Vicious politics. A shamelessly partisan media. A president scorned by half the populace. Smuggling and gang warfare along the Mexican border. Armed citizens willing to stand their ground and take law into their own hands. . . . That was America in 1881.
All those forces came to bear on October 26 when Doc Holliday and the Earp brothers faced off against the Clantons and the McLaurys in Tombstone, Arizona. It should have been a simple misdemeanor arrest. But thirty seconds and thirty bullets later, three officers were wounded and three citizens lay dead in the dirt. Wyatt Earp was the only one unscathed. The lies began before the smoke cleared, but the gunfight at the O.K. Corral would soon become central to American beliefs about the Old West.
Mary Doria Russell has unearthed the Homeric tragedy buried beneath 130 years of mythology, misrepresentation, and sheer indifference to fact. Epic and intimate, Epitaph gives voice to the real men and women whose lives were changed forever by those fatal thirty seconds. And at its heart is the woman behind the myth: Josephine Sarah Marcus, who loved Wyatt Earp for almost half a century and who carefully chipped away at the truth until she had crafted the heroic legend that would become the epitaph she believed her husband deserved.
In depth, scope and nuance, Mary Doria Russell s Epitaph is the best novel yet on the near-mythical events of the Wild West s most famous silver boomtown. Dallas Morning News"
