READING: Philip Kerr staat op eenzame hoogte met John le Carré Historische thriller van topklasse waarin het privéverblijf van Hitler centraal staat 1956 Bernie Gunther is op de vlucht. Erich Mielke, hoofd van de Oost-Duitse Stasi, had hem opgedragen een kennis te vergiftigen, maar zijn geweten heeft het gewonnen van zijn missie. Nu moet hij Mielke telkens een stap voor zijn om in leven te blijven. De man die hem moet binnenbrengen is een ex-collega en Bernie moet automatisch denken aan de laatste klus die ze samen hebben geklaard. In 1939 werden ze door Reinhard Heydrich op Hitlers verblijf de Berghof ontboden om een moord op te lossen. Als de Führer erachter zou komen dat zijn huis een plaats delict was, zouden de consequenties levensgroot zijn. Hoewel er meerdere landen en zeventien jaar zitten tussen de moord in de Berghof en zijn huidige hachelijke situatie, leiden de twee situaties tot misschien wel Bernies vreemdste lotgevallen tot nu toe. Want Bernie zal moeten erkennen dat hij nog ongedane zaken heeft in zijn vaderland. De pers over de boeken van Philip Kerr: ‘Het historische perspectief, gecombineerd met de altijd heerlijk fulminerende Bernie Gunther en de excellente stijl van Kerr maken zijn boeken zo goed.’ Het Parool ‘Terecht de hemel in geprezen.’ de Volkskrant ‘Kerr stijgt in de Gunther-reeks ver boven de gemiddelde thrillerschrijver uit.’ VN Detective en Thrillergids ‘Philip Kerr schrijft de beste crimeboeken ter wereld.’ The Daily Beast

Now family has called her back to Natchez, Mississippi, a city as mysterious and compelling as the ghostly voices that haunt her dreams.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Garnering international prizes and acclaim before its publication, Ilustrado has been called "brilliantly conceived and stylishly executed . . .It is also ceaselessly entertaining, frequently raunchy, and effervescent with humor" (2008 Man Asian Literary Prize panel of judges). It begins with a body. On a clear day in winter, the battered corpse of Crispin Salvador is pulled from the Hudson River—taken from the world is the controversial lion of Philippine literature. Gone, too, is the only manuscript of his final book, a work meant to rescue him from obscurity by exposing the crimes of the Filipino ruling families. Miguel, his student and only remaining friend, sets out for Manila to investigate. To understand the death, Miguel scours the life, piecing together Salvador's story through his poetry, interviews, novels, polemics, and memoirs. The result is a rich and dramatic family saga of four generations, tracing 150 years of Philippine history forged under the Spanish, the Americans, and the Filipinos themselves. Finally, we are surprised to learn that this story belongs to young Miguel as much as to his lost mentor, and we are treated to an unhindered view of a society caught between reckless decay and hopeful progress. Exuberant and wise, wildly funny and deeply moving, Ilustrado explores the hidden truths that haunt every family. It is a daring and inventive debut by a new writer of astonishing talent.
