Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Long Voyage Home is an epic journey written in the manner of Irish writers and poets who have sung from the rocks of Dublin, struggled on the decks of seafaring ships and wept at the graves of comrades and in the alleys of tenaments. It seeks the grace of God and the friendship of angles, while always casting a fearing ear about for the "beast" that sometimes rips our dreams. The remarkable new work examines the struggle to balance our perceptions of memories, dreams and reality, good and evil, Heaven and Hell, while moving through a landscape of parents, jobs, lovers and friends. It invites you to come along. The author, Patrick Kelly, served as a Russian linguist in the U.S. Army, stationed in West Germany before the Berlin Wall fell. He received a B.A. in Journalism from the University of Southern Mississippi, where he also did graduate work in English literature. He spent 25 years as a newswriter and editor in the American Southeast. He is currently working on Volume II of The Long Voyage Home.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the intense and brooding Magellan and the glamorous and dashing Sir Francis Drake; to Thomas Cavendish, who set off to plunder Spain’s American gold and the Dutch circumnavigators, whose numbers included pirates as well as explorers and merchants, Robert Silverberg captures the adventures and seafaring exploits of a bygone era. Over the course of a century, European circumnavigators in small ships charted the coast of the New World and explored the Pacific Ocean. Characterized by fierce nationalism, competitiveness, and bloodshed, The Longest Voyage: Circumnavigators in the Age of Discovery captures the drama, danger, and personalities in the colorful story of the first voyages around the world. These accounts begin with Magellan’s unprecedented 1519–22 circumnavigation, providing an immediate, exciting, and intimate glimpse into that historic venture. The story includes frequent threats of mutiny; the nearly unendurable extremes of heat, cold, hunger, thirst, and fatigue; the fear, tedium, and moments of despair; the discoveries of exotic new peoples and strange new lands; and, finally, Magellan’s own dramatic death during a fanatical attempt to convert native Philippine islanders to Christianity. Capturing the total context of political climate and historical change that made the Age of Discovery one of excitement and drama, Silverberg brings a motley crew of early ocean explorers vividly to life.

A "man of the sea" since early childhood, Peter once said he would spend his last days on his beloved boat on the sometimes wild, but ever wonderful ocean. Fate, though, has its own control and now as Peter slowly sinks into the murky waters of Alzheimer's disease perhaps some of my questions about this last voyage on Obsidienne have been answered. I wonder now whether we would have savoured the trip more if we had known it was to be for both of us the last long sailing adventure on our dear Obsidienne? - Julie Jamieson

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Paulo Emílio Salles Gomes (1916–77) is revered in Brazil as the first ardent defender, promoter and theorist of Brazilian cinema. A film professor, critic and historian, his dedication to cinema shaped a generation of influential film critics in his home country, and set the foundations for the serious study of film in Brazil. For the first time in English, this book brings together a selection of his essays for an English-speaking audience, with detailed explanatory introductions to each section for readers unfamiliar with the context of the writings of Salles Gomes. By blending together ruminations on global and national cinema, as well as avant-garde film and popular movies, the collection shows how the defence and promotion of a national cinema has been forged through dialogues with international trends, informed by commercial influences, and shaped by global and national political contexts. The book thus introduces readers to the international dimensions of Salles Gomes’s engagements with film, and in doing so reassesses the locatedness of his formulations on national cinema and signals their international dimensions.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: John Ford’s classic films—such as Stagecoach, The Grapes of Wrath, How Green Was My Valley, The Quiet Man, and The Searchers—have earned him worldwide admiration as America’s foremost filmmaker, a director whose rich visual imagination conjures up indelible, deeply moving images of our collective past. Joseph McBride’s Searching for John Ford, described as definitive by both the New York Times and the Irish Times, surpasses all other biographies of the filmmaker in its depth, originality, and insight. Encompassing and illuminating Ford’s myriad complexities and contradictions, McBride traces the trajectory of Ford’s life from his beginnings as “Bull” Feeney, the nearsighted, football-playing son of Irish immigrants in Portland, Maine, to his recognition, after a long, controversial, and much-honored career, as America’s national mythmaker. Blending lively and penetrating analyses of Ford’s films with an impeccably documented narrative of the historical and psychological contexts in which those films were created, McBride has at long last given John Ford the biography his stature demands.
