Описание: A dazzling collection of short stories by Mark Helprin, bestselling author of Winter's Tale, which is now a major motion picture starring Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Russell Crowe, William Hurt, and Jennifer ConnellyThe Pacific and Other Stories is a collection of sixteen stories that display the remarkable scope, incomparable wit, and deft prose that have come to be Mark Helprin's signature. A British paratrooper jumps into occupied territory; the 1958 New York Yankees gain an unexpected teammate in a puny, teenaged Hasidic Jew; a September 11th widow receives an astonishing gift from the contractor working on her new apartment--these and other stories exhibit the constantly changing variety of the ocean itself, the peaks and troughs of life. Lighthearted, glittering fables are met with starker tales that sound the depths of sacrifice and duty. The Pacific and Other Stories is a resplendent, powerful collection of lasting substance and emotional import.

Описание: Mark Helprin s legions of devoted readers cherish his timeless novels and short stories, which are uplifting in their conviction of the goodness and resilience of the human spirit. "Freddy and Fredericka" a brilliantly refashioned fairy tale and a magnificently funny farce only seems like a radical departure of form, for behind the laughter, Helprin speaks of leaps of faith and second chances, courage and the primacy of love. Helprin s latest work, an extraordinarily funny allegory about a most peculiar British royal family, is immensely mocking of contemporary monarchy and yet deeply sympathetic to the individuals caught in its lonely absurdities. BACKCOVER: With a pitch-perfect sense of the absurd . . . he has produced a delightful romp of a book. Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times" "Freddy and Fredericka" recalls American journeys of self-discovery by Mark Twain, John Steinbeck and Jack Kerouac. . . . I promise you, this will be one of the fastest . . . novels you ll ever read. "Los Angeles Times" A rollicking, heartwarming examination of the state of the nation . . . Working his own magic, Helprin transforms the thinly veiled satire of the monarchy into a quirky love song to the colonies. "People"

Mark Helprin anticipated that his 2007 "New York Times" op-ed piece about the extension of the term of copyright would be received quietly. instead, within a week, the article had generated 750,000 angry comments. shocked by his young critics' breathtaking sense of entitlement and appalled by the breadth, speed, and illogic of their arguments, Helprin realized how drastically different this generation was from those before it. the Creative Commons movement and the copyright abolitionists have been educated with a modern bias toward collaboration, which has led them to denigrate individual efforts. "Digital Barbarism" is Helprin's cogent, powerful, and passionate response to those whose selfish desire to "stick it" to the "greedy" corporate interests controlling the distribution of intellectual property undermines not just the possibility of an independent literary culture but threatens the future of civilization itself.

Описание: The copyright abolitionists, like the rest of their generation, were educated with a modern bias toward collaboration which has led them to denigrate individual efforts and in turn fueled their sense of entitlement to the fruits of other people`s labors.
