Now in paperback, a major new biography of Graham Greene with extensive new material; exclusive, never-before-seen photographs of Greene on his travels; and full family cooperation An essential read for fans of literary biography, this book fully illuminates a pivotal episode in Graham Greene's life and career in the kind of detail that will sate any fans of his work, but which also provides a fascinating glimpse into a writer's life. In 1965, Greene joined journalist Bernard Diederich in the Dominican Republic to embark on a tour of its border with Haiti, then ruled by "Papa Doc" Duvalier. They were accompanied by activist priest Jean-Claude Bajeux. Diederich had known Greene since the mid-1950s and had lived in Haiti for 14 years. A seasoned correspondent for the British and North American press, he had reported many stories from the region, including Castro's triumph in Cuba and the death of the Dominican dictator, Trujillo. In 1963, he had been thrown out of Haiti and when Greene arrived was working from the Dominican Republic. The famous novelist was 61 and depressed, having struggled to finish A Burnt-Out Case, and was being plagued by religious doubt; Bajeux, meanwhile, had been informed that his family had been "disappeared" by Duvalier's henchmen. As this trio traveled along the border they met a number of rebels and other characters later fictionalized in Greene's most politically charged novel, The Comedians, published the following year. This book tells the story of how a series of extraordinary and often hair-raising journeys gave one of the greatest novelists of the 20th century new inspiration in his writing.

Denver defense attorney Jackie Flowers doesn't want to take the case. Convicted child killers are not her favorite clients. Thirty years ago, Rachel Boyd was just a child herself when she was found guilty of killing her little playmate, Freddie Gant. After three decades in reform school and adult prison, Rachel is finally free. Free to find a new life. Free to kill again? Has she, in fact, already killed another child? Shortly after settling in at the home of her brother, wealthy banker Chris Boyd, Rachel may have succumbed to temptation. Could it be just a coincidence that the gardener's child, Benjamin Sparks, is found dead in circumstances somewhat similar to the Freddie Gant murder? Against her better instincts, Jackie accepts Rachel's case. Everyone deserves a good defense. Jackie wants desperately to embrace her client's innocence and believe what Rachel tells her. Can she trust her enough to invite her into her home to stay while she prepares for trial? And what about Lily, the child next door whom Jackie loves as her own? Just kicked out of boarding school, she's facing a rocky adolescence. Rachel's influence on her may be dangerous in more ways than one. As Jackie fights to prove Rachel's innocence, she must struggle with challenges both inside and outside the courtroom: her dyslexia, which makes it tough to be a lawyer, especially when the other side throws unexpected documents in her face; her conflicted relationship with ex-lover Dennis Ross, who's now an affluent civil litigator; her paralyzing fear of heights. Will her fear cause her to fail at the most crucial moment? With its riveting insights into the legal process and its devastating observations on good and evil and the way the past can haunt the present, Seeds of Doubt confirms the literary power of one of our brightest new crime-writing talents.

In a critical examination of Thackeray's style, Mr. Loofbourow shows how Thackeray "hybridized" the genre of the romance by adapting the tone and language of the epic, the chivalric romance, and the pastoral, and by carrying parody and satire to a high technical level. Thackeray used these techniques with particular success in Vanity Fair and Henry Esmond. Besides analyzing these two works, Mr. Loofbourow discusses the significance of epic in the 19th century, the expressive values of the novel as a whole, and the relevance of Thackeray’s methods to the work of such writers as George Eliot, Henry James, Virginia Woolf, and E. M. Forster. His book is an attempt to come to terms with Thackeray’s style, and a work conceivably destined to become a landmark among the very few acceptable studies of English fiction. It should prove indispensable to anyone interested in style in fiction, and should at the same time precipitate a new trend in Thackeray scholarship. Originally published in 1964. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez And The Powers Of Fiction

Together with the late Jorge Luis Borges, Gabriel García Márquez, the 1982 Nobel laureate, stands at the pinnacle of Latin American literature. His work, in the words of Julio Ortega, "contains its own 'deconstructive' force—a literary power capable of reshaping natural order and rhetorical tradition in order to 'carnivalize' the Borges' library and allow us to hear the voices—and the laughter—of a culture, that of Latin America." This reshaping force invites us to read the works of García Márquez in a new way, one that bypasses the traditional, inadequate approaches through Latin American politics, history, and "magical realism." In Gabriel García Márquez and the Powers of Fiction, noted scholars Julio Ortega, Ricardo Gutiérrez Mouat, Michael Palencia-Roth, Aníbal González, and Gonzalo Díaz-Migoyo offer English-speaking readers a new approach to García Márquez's work. Their poststructuralist readings focus on the peculiar sign-system, formal configuration, intradiscursivity, and unfolding representation in the novels One Hundred Years of Solitude, No One Writes to the Colonel, In Evil Hour, The Autumn of the Patriarch, and Chronicle of a Death Foretold and in several of the author's short stories. Also included as an appendix is a translation of García Márquez's Nobel Prize acceptance speech, "The Solitude of Latin America."
