A Silent Shadow:Life Is a Journey, Enjoy It Avijit Kumar De
Not much could drag Jim Booker out of a peaceful, if lonely, retirement and back to late nights, crime scenes, and chases. Jim Booker is done with detective work and would just like to enjoy a cup of coffee on a sunny day. But when an old friend shows up with a case about an old flame, Booker can’t say no. What starts as a missing persons case soon delivers more than he bargained for, and when Booker’s own past offers clues, it’s clear that no one else can solve this mystery. But there’s a catch: Booker was given six months to live eight months ago. J.R. Rain shows us that when it seems there’s nothing left to live for, there’s also nothing left to lose. His characters will take a chance on danger, doubt, even an unlikely romance - as long as they get a cup of coffee first. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Phil Gigante.

If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in. -Rachel Carson First published more than 50 years ago, this award-winning classic brings Rachel Carson´s unique vision to a new generation of listeners. The Sense of Wonder is Carson´s intimate account of adventures with her young nephew, Roger, as they enjoy walks along the rocky coast of Maine and through dense forests and open fields, observing wildlife, strange plants, moonlight, and storm clouds, and listening to the ´´living music´´ of insects in the underbrush. It is a refreshing antidote to indifference and a guide to capturing the simple power of discovery that Carson views as essential to life. The Sense of Wonder is a timeless volume that will be passed on from children to grandchildren, as treasured as the memory of an early-morning walk when the song of a whippoorwill was heard as if for the first time. 1.

One of America´s most acclaimed writers and journalists, Gay Talese has been fascinated by sports throughout his life. At age 15 he became a sports reporter for his Ocean City High School newspaper; four years later, as sports editor of the University of Alabama´s Crimson-White, he began to employ devices more common in fiction, such as establishing a ´´scene´´ with minute details-a technique that would later make him famous. Later, as a sports reporter for the New York Times,Talese was drawn to individuals at poignant and vulnerable moments rather than to the spectacle of sports. Boxing held special appeal, and his Esquire pieces on Joe Louis and Floyd Patterson in decline won praise, as would his later essay ´´Ali in Havana,´´ chronicling Muhammad Ali´s visit to Fidel Castro. His profile of Joe DiMaggio, ´´The Silent Season of a Hero,´´ perfectly captured the great player in his remote retirement, and displayed Talese´s journalistic brilliance, for it grew out of his on-the-ground observation of the Yankee Clipper rather than from any interview. More recently, Talese traveled to China to track down and chronicle the female soccer player who missed a penalty kick that would have won Chinathe World Cup. Chronicling Talese´s writing over more than six decades, from high school and college columns to his signature adult journalism - and including several never-before-published pieces (such as one on sports anthropology), a new introduction by the author, and notes on the background of each piece - The Silent Season of a Hero is a unique and indispensable collection for sports fans and those who enjoy the heights of journalism. 1.
