Explanation of the Book:

For old man Santiago, catching the biggest marlin in the deep sea has become an obsession. But even after 84 days at sea, the deprived old man is unable to break the bad luck that seems to be following him around. While the whole village of fishermen has given up on him, it’s only his young apprentice, Manolin, who supports his passion, but he too is forbidden by his parents to accompany the old man into the sea. The 85th day changes everything. Alone, for the next three days, Santiago fights with the forces of nature and with the shortcomings brought on by his old age in search of the great catch. One of Ernest Hemingway’s best works, The Old Man and the Sea, explores the themes of mortality, honour-in-defeat and man’s place nature.

Explanation of the Book:

The Old Man And The Sea Is, Undoubtedly, One Of The True Classics Of Our Generation. It Marks The Triumph Of Hemingway As A Literary Artist. The Greatest Quality Of This Book Is That It Cannot Be Vitiated By Public Distortion In Another Medium For Film Purposes. It Is In This Book That Hemingway Came To Terms With Himself And His Universe And Gave Meaning To His Private And Individual Existence.Since The Publication Of This Novelette In 1952, It Was So Widely Read And Talked About That It Earned Its Author The Pulitzer Prize The Same Year And Was Instrumental In Winning Him The Nobel Prize Two Years Later. Since Then So Much Has Been Written On This Book That It Is Very Difficult, If Not Impossible, So Say Or Write Something New About This Symbolic Romance. Nevertheless, The Author Harbours The Feeling That The Material Dished Out By Foreign Critics Is Not Easily Digestible And Up To The Academic Requirements Of The Students Of Indian Universities. It Is In View Of This That An Endeavour Is Made To Rehash, Adapt And Tailor The Old Literary Material Taking Into Account The Intellectual Size, Emotional Response And Academic Need Of Our Students.However, It Is Not Like An Old Wine In A New Bottle. Every Effort Has Been Made To Add A New Flavour To The Old Wine Against The Backdrop Of Our Indian Ethos.

Editor: Hachette UK
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Octogenarian Anthony Smith's journey was originally inspired by both the Kontiki Expedition of Thor Heyerdahl (who he knew) and the incredible story of the survivors of a 1940 boat disaster, who spent 70 days adrift in the Atlantic, eventually reaching land emaciated and close to death. While this might sound like a voyage no-one would wish to emulate, to octogenarian Anthony Smith it sounded like an adventure, and he placed a typically straightforward advertisement in the Telegraph that read "Fancy rafting across the Atlantic? Famous traveller requires 3 crew. Must be OAP. Serious adventurers only." In his inimitable style, Smith details their voyage and the hardships they endured with a matter-of-fact air that makes his story seem all the more impressive. His advanced age allows him a wider perspective not only on the journey but on life itself, and his never-say-die attitude to the difficulty of the journey is inspirational. 'Old men ought to be explorers' said T.S. Eliot, and this book certainly gives a compelling argument in his favour. It is both a great story (a huge storm on the final night of the voyage almost wrecked them on a reef) and a call to action for the older generation - do not go quietly, says Anthony Smith, but seek out adventure as long as you are able.

Explanation of the Book:

The sun was setting and the only place to anchor was at the entrance to a small stream. With anchor down, we jumped into a dinghy to explore the dense jungle the stream penetrated. After a hundred yards or so, we stopped the outboard. Now the fauna slowly recovered from our racket and jungle noises began: bugs, birds, and mystery sounds. We saw colorful parrots and then-by the hundreds-the brilliant scarlet ibis. Then monkeys! Totally quiet, they watched us intently, warily, irritated by our encroachment into their world.

Editor: Simon and Schuster
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

In the fall of 1948, Ernest Hemingway made his first extended visit to Italy in thirty years. His reacquaintance with Venice, a city he loved, provided the inspiration for Across the River and into the Trees, the story of Richard Cantwell, a war-ravaged American colonel stationed in Italy at the close of the Second World War, and his love for a young Italian countess. A poignant, bittersweet homage to love that overpowers reason, to the resilience of the human spirit, and to the worldweary beauty and majesty of Venice, Across the River and into the Trees stands as Hemingway's statement of defiance in response to the great dehumanizing atrocities of the Second World War. Hemingway's last full-length novel published in his lifetime, it moved John O'Hara in The New York Times Book Review to call him “the most important author since Shakespeare.”

Explanation of the Book:

“Transcendent . . . a love letter to the cuisine and the culture of the South Atlantic Coast . . . delectable recipes and stories.” —Edward Lee, James Beard Award-winning chef and author Whitney Otawka is the award-winning chef of Greyfield, a celebrated Carnegie-built inn located on Cumberland Island, Georgia—a magical and remote barrier island that has been left undeveloped as a National Seashore. Cumberland Island and the exceptional local ingredients to be found there are Otawka’s muse, inspiring her to celebrate the beloved food found along the Southeast coast. Offering a modern perspective on southern flavors with a strong emphasis on vegetables and fresh ingredients, the book contains 125 approachable and flavorful recipes, such as summer tomatoes topped with crispy okra, flakey buttermilk biscuits with ginger-spiked jam, and sweet Atlantic shrimp poached with beer, citrus, and bay leaves. This beautifully photographed book also shows us how to enjoy iconic southern meals, everything from an oyster roast, to a fish fry, to a Low Country boil. The Saltwater Table transports readers to the mysterious, lush Cumberland Island, allowing us to recreate a taste of this vibrant world in our own kitchens. “The book shines when it digs deep into the region’s briny history and puts a spin on it, like with this paella featuring shrimp, flaky fish, littleneck clams, and Carolina Gold rice.” —Grub Street “Otawka’s cooking is approachable and meant to be shared—this is a book you could dive into right away, relying mostly on pantry staples. It’s also one of the most beautiful books to be released this year.” —Epicurious
