The tarnished eye by Judith Guest( Book )

From the New York Times bestselling author of Ordinary People comes a gripping novel of suspense, exploring fragile family dynamics in the aftermath of tragedy ... Acclaimed author Judith Guest makes a triumphant return with this poignant and powerful novel that's sure to add luster to her reputation as one of the most thoughtful observers of the human condition. Taking as part of her inspiration a baffling, unsolved true-life crime, Guest achieves in this absorbing new novel an extraordinary combination of page-turning mystery and intimate, emotionally charged family drama. The Tarnished Eye takes readers to the community of Blessed, in northern Michigan, where Sheriff Hugh DeWitt still grieves for his infant son, who died of SIDS a few years earlier. Obsessed with the past, he's endangering his future with his beloved wife and daughter. Meanwhile, up the road from the DeWitts, in one of the rich summer cottages, Paige Norbois grieves for a lost love of her own. Married to a stern and unresponsive man, Paige wills herself to stay in the marriage and sacrifice her personal feelings for the sake of her children's stability. But soon an unimaginable tragedy destroys all dreams of stability in Blessed. Paige, her husband, Edward, and their four children are brutally slaughtered in their home. Sheriff DeWitt, deeply moved by the horrific murder scene, must find answers to a string of urgent questions. When, exactly, did the murders occur? Why did nobody miss the family earlier? Who had a motive to kill? The man with whom Paige was having an affair? The business partner, who was stealing from Edward's publishing firm? Which family member was the primary, intended victim? And above all, what sort of trauma could fuel a killer's capacity to commit such hate-driven violence? Judith Guest, with her own untarnished eye and finely nuanced prose, delivers a novel that transcends genre and showcases once again her remarkable literary gifts

Gente corriente( Visual )

3 editions published in 2002 in Spanish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gente corriente es una extraordinaria película que analiza la historia de una familia deshecha por la tensión y la tragedia. Donald Sutherland y Mary Tyler Moore representan a una pareja de clase media-alta cuya existencia "corriente" se ve irremediablemente afectada por la muerte de su hijo mayor en un accidente de navegación. Timothy Hutton interpreta al hijo menor que lucha por superar un intento de suicidio y el sentimiento de culpa que sufre como consecuencia del accidente en que se ahogó su hermano. Judd Hirsch interpreta al comprensivo psiquiatra que le ayuda a superar la crisis y Mary Tyler Moore ofrece un fascinante retrato de la inexplicablemente distante madre. El éxito como director de Robert Redford, después de más de veinte años como estrella ante las cámaras, se vio recompensado con un Oscar. Excelentes actuaciones y una dirección magistral complementan este galardonado guión, basado en la novela de Judith Guest
