Koestler : the literary and political odyssey of a twentieth-century skeptic by Michael Scammell( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first authorized biography of one of the most influential and controversial intellectuals of the twentieth century, based on new research and full access to its subject's papers. Best known as the creator of the classic anti-Communist novel Darkness at Noon, Koestler is here revealed as a man whose personal life was as astonishing as his literary accomplishments. The young Hungarian Jew whose experience of anti-Semitism and devotion to Zionism provoked him to move to Palestine; the foreign correspondent who risked his life from the North Pole to Franco's Spain; the committed Communist for whom the brutal truth of Stalin's show trials inspired the angry novel that became an instant classic in 1940; the escape from occupied France by joining the Foreign Legion and his bluffing his way illegally to England, where his controversial 1943 novel Arrival and Departure was the first to portray Hitler's Final Solution. Scammell also gives a full account of the author's voluminous writings, making the case that the autobiographies and essays are fit to stand beside Darkness at Noon as works of lasting literary value.--From publisher description
The defense by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )

As a young boy, Luzhin was unattractive, distracted, withdrawn, sullen--an enigma to his parents and an object of ridicule to his classmates. He takes up chess as a refuge from the anxiety of his everyday life. His talent is prodigious and he rises to the rank of grandmaster--but at a cost: in Luzhin' s obsessive mind, the game of chess gradually supplants the world of reality. His own world falls apart during a crucial championship match, when the intricate defense he has devised withers under his opponent's unexpected and unpredictable lines of assault

Des mémoires particulièrement attendus. Lorsqu'il fut spectaculairement échangé contre le communiste chilien Corvalan, Boukovsky, à trente-quatre ans, avait totalisé plus de douze ans de prison et d'hôpitaux psychiatriques. Depuis l'adolescence, il n'avait cessé de militer pour les droits de l'homme avec un courage légendaire. Ce livre est beaucoup plus qu'un témoignage sur le Goulag, bien que ses révélations soient stupéfiantes. Il nous fait comprendre le régime, son évolution, ce qui conduit les hommes à l'accepter, ou, comme lui, à le refuser
