Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Spanning western Europe from 1875 to 1917 and presenting a gothic historical Paris that subverts our old assumptions regarding the City of Light, M. Allen Cunninghams new novel brings a brooding atmosphere and human complexity to an intimate and imaginative portrait of one of the most uniquely sensitive artists of his time, a poet whose odd childhood and difficult early life will both fascinate and perhaps help explain his determination to stay true to his artistic vision at almost any cost. Here is Rainer Maria Rilke in the grip of his greatest artistic struggle: life itself.

Rilkes gripping emotional drama as child, lover, husband, father, protégé, misfit soldier, and wanderer is framed by a haunted young figure, a researcher who, a century later, feels compelled to trace Rilkes itinerant footsteps and those of Rilkes fictional alter ego, the bewitched poet Malte Laurids Brigge. The result is an exploration of the forever imperfect loyalties we face in work and life, the seemingly immeasurable distances that can separate life and art, and the generational tensions between masters and admirers.

Synopsis:

Jean Waterman and her two children join with other fortune seekers who are mining uranium in the Utah desert in 1954, and find adventure and friendships.

Synopsis:

A young widow and her two children catch uranium fever in the 1950s and join the throng of self-styled prospectors heading to the desert Southwest, hoping to strike it rich
