A wise, affecting novel from the beloved, award-winning author of Funny Girl, High Fidelity, and About A Boy. New York Times-bestselling author Nick Hornby mines the hearts and psyches of four lost souls who connect just when they've reached the end of the line. A Long Way Down is now a major motion picture from Magnolia Pictures starring Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul, and Imogen Poots. Meet Martin, JJ, Jess, and Maureen. Four people who come together on New Year's Eve: a former TV talk show host, a musician, a teenage girl, and a mother. Three are British, one is American. They encounter one another on the roof of Topper's House, a London destination famous as the last stop for those ready to end their lives. In four distinct and riveting first-person voices, Nick Hornby tells a story of four individuals confronting the limits of choice, circumstance, and their own mortality. This is a tale of connections made and missed, punishing regrets, and the grace of second chances. Intense, hilarious, provocative, and moving, A Long Way Down is a novel about suicide that is, surprisingly, full of life. From the Trade Paperback edition.

La Nochevieja tiene dos variantes: alegría dionisíaca ante un nuevo comienzo o caída en picado por el inventario de los proyectos abandonados. ¿Que la Nochevieja y la vida merecen ser pensadas con mayor sutileza? Cierto, pero eso es algo que las cuatro personas que coinciden en la terraza del edificio conocido como «la torre de los suicidas», deberán aprender por sí mismos, en tanto resistan el impulso de lanzarse al vacío. Martin era un famoso presentador de televisión hasta que lo descubrieron liado con una chica de quince años. Maureen, católica devotísima, ya no soporta su vida de madre soltera con un hijo incapacitado. A Jess, en plena angustia adolescente, la ha dejado su novio. Y JJ es un joven americano con pinta de estrella del rock, e iba camino de serlo hasta que su grupo estalló. Pero como suicidarse es un acto íntimo, y cuatro son multitud, postergan matarse hasta el día de San Valentín. Y para matar el tiempo crean un imprevisible grupo de ayuda mutua.

Narrated in turns by a dowdy, middle-aged woman, a half-crazed adolescent, a disgraced breakfast TV presenter and an American rock star cum pizza delivery boy, A Long Way Down is the story of the Toppers House Four, aka Maureen, Jess, Martin and JJ. A low-rent crowd with absolutely nothing in common - save where they end up that New Year's Eve night. And what they do next, of course. Funny, sad, and wonderfully humane, Nick Hornby's new novel asks some of the big questions: about life and death, strangers and friendship, love and pain, and whether a slice of pizza can really see you through a long, dark night of the soul.

Detective Inspector Sep Black returns to take on two connected cold cases in this hard-hitting police procedural from the author of Dead or Alive. When a wealthy businessman suffers a fatal fall from his office window, the forensic evidence points to murder. But with no suspects, no clues, and no apparent motive, the police investigation stalls. It’s passed over to the Cold Case Unit where it remains on file, inactive until further evidence emerges. Some months later, an attractive widow approaches DI Sep Black with a request that he look into the murder of her husband. Freelance journalist James Boswell had been working on a major story—and his widow Sandra believes it had something to do with his death. What did Boswell discover that got him killed? As he starts to ask questions, Black uncovers a possible connection between the two murders. But before he can find out more, an almost-successful attempt on his life reveals that someone is determined to stop him from finding out the truth—whatever it takes. “Sep is a really strong character . . . a definite keeper.” —Booklist “Plenty of action and an enjoyable read.” —Euro Crime

Enter into rest. Where do you come to rest internally? The heart of flesh pumps blood, and the heart of the spirit resides in the mind. True rest must first be in the mind and the heart for the whole person and the whole life to rest. Activity and rest of the body, soul, and spirit are life. In His image the Lord made our life in perfection of purpose, intent, and craftsmanship. Where do you come to rest—in His presence with the extra ingredient of your purpose, intent, and craftsmanship? How do you enter activity—in Him or in you? Are you a citizen of heaven in yearning confident expectation, or an earthling putting down roots? "... as he thinks in his heart, so is he" (Prov. 23:7).

From the author of the acclaimed, award-winning debut novel Black Fridays, comes a story of murder, greed, and corruption—and the lengths to which one man will go for his family. He approached me in the street—bone-thin, gray-bearded, holding out a small envelope. “The man said you’d give me five bucks for it.” Inside was a one-word message: RUN. Two years in a federal prison has changed Jason Stafford, is still changing him, but one thing it has taught him as a financial investigator is how to detect a lie. He doesn’t think Philip Haley is lying. An engineer on the verge of a biofuel breakthrough, Haley has been indicted for insider trading on his own company, and Stafford believes him when he says he’s been set up. Haley does indeed have enemies. He is not a nice man. Doesn’t make him a criminal. It does make him dangerous to be around, though. The deeper Stafford investigates, the more secrets he starts to uncover, secrets people would kill for. And that’s exactly what happens. Soon, it is Stafford himself who is under attack and, worse, his family—his fiancée, his young son—and he is a fugitive, desperately trying to stay one step ahead of both the killers and the law.

Inglaterra, mediados de la década de 1960. Barbara Parker se presenta a un concurso de misses en Blackpool, una pequeña ciudad costera del condado de Lancashire. Pero, admiradora de Lucille Ball, sueña con dejar atrás su vida provinciana y convertirse en actriz. Se marcha a Londres, trabaja un tiempo en el departamento de cosméticos de unos grandes almacenes, consigue un representante que le sugiere cambiarse el nombre por el de Sophie Straw, se presenta a un casting de la BBC y acaba convertida en la protagonista de una teleserie humorística sobre una pareja: Barbara (y Jim). Funny Girl sigue la carrera ascendente de Barbara/Sophie y sus conflictos personales, y retrata las bambalinas de la creación de la comedia televisiva a través de las personas implicadas: la pareja de guionistas entusiastas del género que se conocieron en una comisaría al ser detenidos en unos lavabos públicos, el actor coprotagonista, siempre convencido de que debe aspirar a más, el productor educado en las mejores universidades y enamorado de la actriz principal... Con el Swinging London y una Inglaterra cuyos usos y costumbres están cambiando a velocidad de vértigo como trasfondo, Nick Hornby recrea con precisión y rinde homenaje a esa cultura popular que siempre le ha fascinado. Si en Alta fidelidad y Juliet, desnuda el referente era la música pop, aquí se centra en el mundo de las comedias televisivas. Y a través de la actriz protagonista y el personaje que interpreta en la pequeña pantalla, Funny Girl establece paralelismos y contrastes entre la realidad y la ficción, y retrata con sus virtudes y flaquezas humanas a un repertorio de personajes entrañables que se mueven delante y detrás de las cámaras. Siguiendo la estela de sus anteriores libros, el autor nos propone una novela divertida, deliciosa y con las emociones a flor de piel.

Excerpt: Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written early in the career of William Shakespeare about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately unite their feuding families. It was among Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime and, along with Hamlet, is one of his most frequently performed plays. Today, the title characters are regarded as archetypal young lovers. Romeo and Juliet belongs to a tradition of tragic romances stretching back to antiquity. Its plot is based on an Italian tale, translated into verse as The Tragical History of Romeus and Juliet by Arthur Brooke in 1562 and retold in prose in Palace of Pleasure by William Painter in 1582. Shakespeare borrowed heavily from both but, to expand the plot, developed supporting characters, particularly Mercutio and Paris. Believed to have been written between 1591 and 1595, the play was first published in a quarto version in 1597. This text was of poor quality, and later editions corrected it, bringing it more in line with Shakespeare's original. Shakespeare's use of dramatic structure, especially effects such as switching between comedy and tragedy to heighten tension, his expansion of minor characters, and his use of sub-plots to embellish the story, has been praised as an early...
