Secret Tibet by Fosco Maraini( Book )

12 editions published between 1952 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fosco Maraini visited Tibet in 1937 and again in 1948. In 1951 he published Secret Tibet, an account that was a synthesis of the two journeys. This book is not a guidebook: the author's studies and journeys concentrated on the valleys and passes that bring travellers from India via Sikkim on their way to the forbidden city of Lhasa. Maraini spent much time in villages and monasteries along the way, at Gangtok, Phari, Iwang and Gyantse in particular. Lhasa he never reached. So how can he call his book "Secret Tibet"? Because he arrived commanding a serviceable knowledge of the language and with no need for interpreters was able to make a warm and fulfilling human contact with men and women representing the very soul of the nation - lamas, scholars, merchants, herdsmen, peasants, children, villains and even princesses. Above all he penetrates the secrets that make Tibetan Buddhism not only the sheet anchor for the nation's sense of identity but indeed a religion and philosophy as intriguing as it is paradoxical. The photographs taken by the author now stand in many instances as a unique record of religious artefacts irrecoverably destroyed

Vienna, 1909. When the celebrated actor Eugen Bischoff is found dead in his garden pavilion, suspicion falls immediately on Baron von Yosch, a well-to-do army officer who was once the lover of the dead man's wife. By all appearances-the door was locked from the inside when the two shots rang out-the actor took his own life, but someone, or something, drove him to it. The baron sets out to learn all he can about the actor's death in order to clear his name. Meanwhile, within a few days, similar apparent suicides are reported. What started out as a straightforward quest to establish Bi

The Abruzzo trilogy by Ignazio Silone( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first novel in the series, Fontamara, portrays the bitter trials of the villagers of Pescina as they battle with landowners who have appropriated their only source of water. First published from his exile in Zurich in 1933, and banned in his own country, the novel was translated into twenty languages and won Silone instant international literary fame." "Silone's masterpiece, Bread and Wine, introduces the semiautobiographical character Pietro Spina, an anti-Fascist revolutionary who returns to his homeland after fifteen years in exile. He seeks refuge among the Abruzzo peasants by posing as the priest Don Paolo Spada." "Pietro's story continues in The Seed Beneath the Snow, Silone's personal favorite in the trilogy. Pietro flees again and, with the police in close pursuit, is taken in by his grandmother, Donna Maria Vincenza. Though comfortably settled in Italian bourgeois society, she jeopardizes her own life in order to protect him."--Jacket

Cocaine by Pitigrilli( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paris in the 1920s - dizzy and decadent. Where a young man can make a fortune with his wits ... unless he is led into temptation. Cocaine's dandified hero Tito Arnaudi invents lurid scandals and gruesome deaths, and sells these stories to the newspapers. But his own life becomes even more outrageous than his press reports when he acquires three demanding mistresses. Elegant, witty and wicked, Pitigrilli's classic novel was first published in Italian in 1921 and charts the comedy and tragedy of a young man's downfall and the lure of a bygone era. The novel's descriptions of sex and drug use prompted church authorities to place it on a list of forbidden books, while appealing to filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder who wrote a script based on the tale. Cocaine retains its venom even today
