READING: Michael Punke De spookverschijning Het boek dat de inspiratiebron is van de film The Revenant Lees het boek dat de inspiratiebron is van de internationale bioscoopfilm The Revenant Het is 1823. Langs de rivier de Missouri trekt de 36-jarige avonturier Hugh Glass met een groep pelsjagers een onbekend en zeer gevaarlijk gebied in. Glass ondervindt dit gevaar aan den lijve wanneer hij op brute wijze wordt aangevallen door een grizzlybeer. Dagenlang balanceert hij op het randje van de dood. Zijn medereizigers houden het voor gezien: ze stelen zijn wapens en laten Glass alleen in de wildernis achter. De woede om deze laffe daad geeft de stervende man nieuwe kracht en hij zweert wraak. In de maanden die volgen onderneemt Glass - alleen en ongewapend - een onvoorstelbare tocht van bijna 5000 kilometer door de onherbergzame Amerikaanse wildernis, voortgedreven door de drang naar vergelding. De spookverschijning is een avonturenthriller over verraad en wraak, gebaseerd op een waargebeurde geschiedenis. Michael Punke is de Amerikaanse ambassadeur en permanent vertegenwoordiger bij de Wereldhandelsorganisatie in Genève. Hij groeide op in Wyoming, vlak bij de route die Hugh Glass aflegde. Nu verfilmd als The Revenant door de Oscar-genomineerde regisseur Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel, Biutiful en 21 Grams), met in de hoofdrollen Leonardo DiCaprio en Tom Hardy.

READING: "True Grit" is Charles Portis¿ beroemdste westernroman en vertelt het verhaal van Mattie Ross, die veertien jaar oud is wanneer een lafaard genaamd Tom Chaney haar vader van achteren neerschiet in Fort Smith, Arkansas, en hem niet alleen berooft van zijn leven, maar ook van zijn paard en honderdvijftig dollar. Mattie verlaat haar ouderlijk huis, met als doel haar vader te wreken. Ze huurt de hardste en meest rücksichtlose marshal in die ze kan vinden, de eenogige Rooster Cogburn, om Chaney, die zich schuilhoudt in een indianenreservaat, op te sporen. Het gehele boek wordt verteld door de ogen van de tiener Mattie, maar de knipogen zijn duidelijk die van een volwassene. Daardoor komt het in het boek aanwezige geweld nooit als een schok aan, maar wordt het terloops meegegeven (¿Op het politiebureau troffen we twee agenten die met elkaar in gevecht waren, en dus niet beschikbaar bleken voor het verstrekken van inlichtingen¿), als iets wat dagelijkse kost is, wat hoort bij het leven in het ¿wilde Westen¿. Toch verliest Charles Portis nooit uit het oog dat een western voornamelijk op actie gericht moet zijn, en is de obligatoire shoot-out er dan ook eentje die volledig aan de verwachtingen voldoet¿

READING: Arthur Conan Doyle has just killed off Sherlock Holmes in "The Final Problem," and he immediately becomes one of the most hated men in London. So when he is contacted by a medium "of some renown" and asked to investigate a murder, he jumps at the chance to get out of the city. The only thing is that the murder hasn't happened yet—the medium, one Hope Thraxton, has foreseen that her death will occur at the third séance of a meeting of the Society for Psychical Research at her manor house in the English countryside. Along for the ride is Conan Doyle's good friend Oscar Wilde, and together they work to narrow down the list of suspects, which includes a mysterious foreign Count, a levitating magician, and an irritable old woman with a "familiar." Meanwhile, Conan Doyle is enchanted by the plight of the capricious Hope Thraxton, who may or may not have a more complicated back-story than it first appears. As Conan Doyle and Wilde participate in séances and consider the possible motives of the assembled group, the clock ticks ever closer to Hope's murder, in The Revenant of Thraxton Hall by Vaughn Entwistle.

READING: The Revenant A Novel by J. West Hardin After a lifetime of unsuccessfully seeking redemption a profound spiritual crisis triggers David's dying mind to desperately accelerate a bizarre process of reconciliation. As it is said, "Your life flashes before your eyes when you die," the tortured protagonist relives an idyllic fantasy of an alternative life instead of his own. Archetypical phantasms take on the guise of idealized characters whose David's narcissistic mind conveniently rewrites into his life story. Guardian angels inhabiting an ethereal dimension of David's subconscious create a spiritual focus that serves as his vehicle to overcome and explain away the sad reality of a pathetic life. His resurrected phantasm enables him to re-tell his story through the eyes of a subordinate uni-dimensional child who sets off on a righteous quest where guilt, blame or acceptance of fault for either outcome or consequence is denied. Through the vehicle of fantasy and a betrayal of truth the revenant of David's creation returns after a life of tortuous wandering. With his redemption in hand he is able to reconcile with himself and finds a pathway to inner peace at the end of his life.
