READING: De onsterfelijken is een groot succes in de VS en kwam op 7 binnen in de New York Times-bestsellerlijst New York, 1969. De broers en zussen Gold krijgen als kind hun sterfdatum te horen van een helderziende. De voorspelling heeft grote gevolgen voor hen in de vijftig jaar die volgen en allevier proberen ze op eigen wijze het lot te bezweren: oogappel Simon vlucht naar de westkust, op zoek naar de liefde in het San Francisco van de jaren tachtig. De dromerige Klara wordt illusionist in Las Vegas, geobsedeerd door de grens tussen werkelijkheid en fantasie. Oudste zoon Daniel zoekt naar zekerheid als legerarts in de jaren na 9/11, hopend aan het lot te kunnen ontkomen. En de serieuze Varya probeert de grens tussen de wetenschap en onsterfelijkheid te breken. De onsterfelijken is een prachtige ode aan de onontkoombare kracht van verhalen en van familiebanden. De pers over De onsterfelijken: ‘De onsterfelijken is een grenzeloos ontroerende roman over sterfelijkheid, rouw en passie. Benjamin brengt kleurrijke personages tot leven die compassie oproepen – een zeldzaam talent dat je ademloos achterlaat.’ The Guardian ‘Benjamins schrijftalent is betoverend.’ The Washington Post ‘Chloe Benjamin is een talent om in de gaten te houden. De onsterfelijken verweeft filosofie en waarzeggerij duizelingwekkend en met groot succes. De lezer wordt verleid met onverwachte wendingen en stijlvol, helder proza. Dit ambitieuze, onorthodoxe verhaal kan je – onbedoeld – ook veranderen.’ The Economist

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: On the Boston Common stands one of the great Civil War memorials, a magnificent bronze sculpture by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. It depicts the black soldiers of the Fifty-fourth Massachusetts Infantry marching alongside their young white commander, Colonel Robert Gould Shaw. When the philosopher William James dedicated the memorial in May 1897, he stirred the assembled crowd with these words: "There they march, warm-blooded champions of a better day for man. There on horseback among them, in the very habit as he lived, sits the blue-eyed child of fortune." In this book Shaw speaks for himself with equal eloquence through nearly two hundred letters he wrote to his family and friends during the Civil War. The portrait that emerges is of a man more divided and complex--though no less heroic--than the Shaw depicted in the celebrated film Glory. The pampered son of wealthy Boston abolitionists, Shaw was no abolitionist himself, but he was among the first patriots to respond to Lincoln's call for troops after the attack on Fort Sumter. After Cedar Mountain and Antietam, Shaw knew the carnage of war firsthand. Describing nightfall on the Antietam battlefield, he wrote, "the crickets chirped, and the frogs croaked, just as if nothing unusual had happened all day long, and presently the stars came out bright, and we lay down among the dead, and slept soundly until daylight. There were twenty dead bodies within a rod of me." When Federal war aims shifted from an emphasis on restoring the Union to the higher goal of emancipation for four million slaves, Shaw's mother pressured her son into accepting the command of the North's vanguard black regiment, the Fifty-fourth Massachusetts. A paternalist who never fully reconciled his own prejudices about black inferiority, Shaw assumed the command with great reluctance. Yet, as he trained his recruits in Readville, Massachusetts, during the early months of 1963, he came to respect their pluck and dedication. "There is not the least doubt," he wrote his mother, "that we shall leave the state, with as good a regiment, as any that has marched." Despite such expressions of confidence, Shaw in fact continued to worry about how well his troops would perform under fire. The ultimate test came in South Carolina in July 1863, when the Fifty-fourth led a brave but ill-fated charge on Fort Wagner, at the approach to Charleston Harbor. As Shaw waved his sword and urged his men forward, an enemy bullet felled him on the fort's parapet. A few hours later the Confederates dumped his body into a mass grave with the bodies of twenty of his men. Although the assault was a failure from a military standpoint, it proved the proposition to which Shaw had reluctantly dedicated himself when he took command of the Fifty-fourth: that black soldiers could indeed be fighting men. By year's end, sixty new black regiments were being organized. A previous selection of Shaw's correspondence was privately published by his family in 1864. For this volume, Russell Duncan has restored many passages omitted from the earlier edition and has provided detailed explanatory notes to the letters. In addition he has written a lengthy biographical essay that places the young colonel and his regiment in historical context.
