Keeping chickens is a very popular hobby today but it was just as popular in 1918, albeit for different reasons. In the early twentieth century keeping chickens was often a money-making enterprise that anyone with a small amount of land could undertake. However, it is clear from Poultry Keeping that taking care to look after chickens and other poultry properly was vital, whether for profit or pleasure. Although this Vintage Words of Wisdom title is often amusing and quaint, the advice given is provided by acknowledged experts and it stands the test of time. There are wise words here on keeping chickens clean, well-fed and healthy, with regular reminders that chickens need space and time to scratch and forage for food themselves in order to stay well and productive. This is in a time before battery hens were crowded into tiny cages with no room to stretch their wings or have a dust bath. The authors provide advice on building a chicken coop, detailed menus for feeding chickens through the year and a chapter on the various diseases and ailments of poultry. The authors also provide guidance on the breeds of chickens to buy for different purposes – egg-laying, chickens for eating, showing, etc. – breeding and care of chicks, showing chickens (which was very popular in 1918), the business side of poultry-keeping, as well as advice on keeping other poultry such as ducks, geese, turkeys and guinea fowl (though the authors do not recommend keeping ostriches!). The illustrations are charming as well as informative, the text is engaging and describes a world in 1918 that is sometimes familiar and at other times very different. From Orpingtons to silkies, Poultry Keeping offers timeless wisdom on raising chickens from egg to adult bird. We heartily recommend this book as an enjoyable and nostalgic read for anyone who has chickens, or who is thinking of keeping chickens as a hobby or as a backyard business.

Medianoche en el jardín del bien y del mal

Savannah, la vieja ciudad sureña del añejo esplendor georgiano, es la verdadera protagonista de esta espléndida novela de misterio. ¿Libro de viajes o novela de misterio? Quizás ambas cosas a la vez, pues la protagonista, vieja dama que conserva aún la singular belleza de su decadencia, es una geografía que explorar y un ente vivo cuya placidez puede tornarse tragedia. La vieja dama es Savannah, la ciudad sureña del añejo esplendor georgiano. Hoy tiene alrededor de doscientos mil habitantes y un displicente aire provinciano. Sus viejas mansiones, como ahogadas en un bosque de magnolios, dan ese toque de Edén en el que no puede faltar el diablo. Porque también en Savannah hay, parafraseando a Brassens, «hermosos asesinatos». Medianoche en el jardín del bien y del mal es una obra ejemplar en muchos sentidos: por el sortilegio del paisaje urbano que evocan sus páginas, por la suave, amistosa ironía con que son retratados sus habitantes y por el cuidadoso ejercicio de tensión con que se relata el gran acontecimiento del asesinato. Escrita desde la fascinación de John Berendt por las gentes, el paisaje y las costumbres de la soberbia Savannah, esta novela, a caballo entre la realidad y la ficción, es una irónica y sugerente exploración de la vida social y privada de una ciudad donde lo ordinario se convierte en extraordinario. Clint Eastwood la llevó a la pantalla en 1997; con esta nueva edición recuperamos lo que ya es un clásico contemporáneo. Esta novela pertenece al #FondoDeEditor de Literatura Random House «Este libro es la puerta de entrada a un mundo repleto de historias, la llave de acceso a una sociedad cerrada, el pasaporte a una galería de personajes extravagantes y estrafalarios. Este libro es un clásico contemporáneo.» Claudio López Lamadrid La crítica ha dicho... «Elegante y mordaz [...]. Medianoche en el jardín del bien y del mal podría ser considerada la primera novela, basada en un crimen real, que suscita deseos de reservar un bed and breakfast en la misma escena del crimen durante un fin de semana largo.» The New York Times Book Review «Elegante, brillante, divertidísima y seductora.» Kirkus Review «Esta novela es una historia maravillosamente bien contada y perspicaz sobre la vida en Savannah, Georgia, durante los ocho años que este periodista de la revista Esquire pasó allí.» Booklist
