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: The Revenant was an unlikely movie to become a worldwide phenomenon: a punishing, austere art film about a 19th-century trapper, with a nearly three- hour runtime, and almost no dialogue. The exacting vision of director Alejandro G. I��rritu had caused its production to spin out of control, both financially and even physically, taking a terrible toll on stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy. Hollywood insiders predicted it would soon be a cautionary tale on par with the legendary flop Heaven's Gate. Yet there was method to I��rritu's supposed madness, and when The Revenant was finally released, its uncompromising realism and originality took both critics and the box office by storm. In this convenient, fast-paced book, James Diamond takes us inside this extraordinary production, from the miseries suffered by its cast and crew to the soaring heights of their creative invention. He traces the story of trapper Hugh Glass from frontier tall-tale to novel to Hollywood, through the remarkable evolutions of its screenplay and the surprising on-set sacrifices needed to complete production. The resulting creative journey is every bit as remarkable-and every bit as thrilling-as Glass's own. Buy Now to Discover: The true story of-and many mysteries surrounding-the real Hugh Glass.

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: Phoebe Reeves' first novel The Revenant has been nominated for the prestigious 1999 Bram Stoker Award for Best Novel, alongside bestselling works by Stephen King and Dean Koontz--a remarkable achievement for an independent press book. The Revenant is a magical realist story of creation and death, about a woman's search for identity and transformation. In The Revenant, a mysterious tale of murder, conspiracy, and confrontation with the unknown, a young woman confronts the ancestors, both living and dead, as she searches for her own redemption in her mother's murder and her part in that murder which has become the whole definition of her life. Nenut Kite, an amateur artist born of a Nubian father and a Caucasian American mother, has been raised from the age of ten in a juvenile's jail. Since being released at 18, she's tried to carry on a normal life. But her father has never forgiven her for her mother's death and obsessively demands that she preserves a physical appearance identical to her mother's. And so, Nenut has never lived comfortably among the living. Now at 25, consumed by the image and sensation of holding her mother's burning skull in her hands as she tried to put out the flames, Nenut sculpts glass and stone monuments, invocations to the Dead, in hopes that They will convince her mother's ghost to talk to her. Someone or something answers her call, and her life becomes caught up in a raging whirlwind, when during her first public exhibition, her sanity is brought into question by her encounters with Kongo and Egyptian ancestors, and the enigmatic organization known only as The End. The End, with the promise of insight into her mother's demise and her relationship to her mother, hires Nenut to become a mute, a burial mourner and creator of art and ritual situations needed by the families of people who've died. And so her journey begins via funerals, across places, across cultures, across times, as Nenut races to piece together the puzzle of her identity before a disease that is literally turning her to stone kills her.

READING: Charles Marion Russell (1864-1926),also known as Charlie Russell, and "Kid" Russell, was an artist of the Old American West. Russell created more than 2,000 paintings of cowboys, Indians, and landscapes set in the Western United States and in Alberta, Canada, in addition to bronze sculptures. Known as 'the cowboy artist',Russell was also a storyteller and author. Hugh Glass (1780-1833) was an American fur trapper and frontiersman who was mauled by a grizzly bear and left for dead by his companions. He crawled about 200 miles (320 km) over six weeks to reach Fort Kiowa. Glass was born in Pennsylvania to Scots-Irish parents from Ireland. An explorer of the watershed of the Upper Missouri River in present-day Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and the Platte River area of Nebraska. Glass's life before the bear attack is uncertain. His life story is noted for its frequent embellishment. He was reported to have been captured by privateers under the command of Jean Lafitte off the coast of Texas in 1816 and forced to become a pirate for up to two years. He allegedly escaped by swimming to shore near what is today Galveston, Texas. Glass is later rumored to have been captured by Pawnee Native Americans with whom he lived for several years. He eventually wed a Native American woman. He traveled to St. Louis in 1821, accompanying several Pawnee delegates invited to meet with United States authorities. In August 1823, near the forks of the Grand River in present-day Perkins County, South Dakota, while scouting for game for the expedition's larder, Glass surprised a grizzly bear with two cubs. The bear charged, picked him up, and threw him to the ground. Glass managed to kill the bear with help from his trapping partners, Fitzgerald and Bridger, but was left badly mauled and unconscious. Ashley (who was also with them) became convinced he would not survive his injuries.

READING: Concerned with transformations and dislocations - both physical and emotional - the poems in James Lasdun's second collection speak exquisitely of desire and loss. Jetlagged, estranged, out of synch or out of kilter, the figures in these poems sometimes just miss each other, sometimes connect explosively. And under their feet - whether it's a Roman pavement, a hill-path in Mexico, a Surrey lawn or a New York street - there is always something primitive, turbulent, ready to reveal itself. Intellectually rigorous, musical and deftly formal these apparently classical poems blend a dark, erotic animus with an exhilarating wit.
