A civil action by Jonathan Harr( Book )

63 editions published between 1196 and 2011 in 12 languages and held by 3,846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The lawyer had not wanted the case at first--it was too big, too complicated, too risky. Two of the nation's largest corporations stood accused of the deaths of children in a small town north of Boston. Against his better judgment, the lawyer found himself drawn into the case." "In this book, you'll meet the Harvard law professor who told the lawyer that this case was worth a billion dollars, that it was the sort of lawsuit that would ring the alarm in corporate boardrooms across America. And you'll meet his adversaries, foremost among them a crafty old trial lawyer, chairman of the litigation department at one of the biggest and most feared law firms in Boston." "The case turned into an epic struggle that took nine years of the lawyer's life. At the heart of the legal system, he was confronted by powerful and well-connected interests who would do anything to win. In the end, the struggle nearly cost him his sanity. He sacrified everything--home, friends, and reputation--not for money, but for what he believed to be the truth."--Jacket
The lost painting by Jonathan Harr( Book )

49 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 2,592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A decaying palazzo on a hilltop near the Adriatic coast, and in the basement, cobwebbed and dusty, an archive unknown to scholars. Here, a young graduate student from Rome makes a discovery that inspires a search for a painting lost for almost two centuries. The artist was Caravaggio, a revolutionary painter beset by personal demons. Four hundred years ago, he drank and brawled in the taverns and streets of Rome, in and out of jail, all the while painting transcendent works. He rose from obscurity to fame and wealth, but success didn't alter his violent temperament. He died young, alone, and under strange circumstances. Caravaggio scholars estimate that between sixty and eighty of his works are in existence today. Many others--no one knows the precise number--have been lost to time. Somewhere, surely, a masterpiece lies forgotten. This quest is a synthesis of history and detective story.--From publisher description

Caravaggio was a master of Italian Baroque painting who rose from obscurity to fame and wealth, but whose personal demons led him to commit murder and flee Rome as a hunted man. Scholars believe that some of Caravaggio's masterpieces have been forgotten and lie hidden in some storeroom or parish church. Jonathan Harr's search for a long-lost painting known as The taking of Christ is both history and a detective story as he relates the circumstances of its disappearance and its mysterious fate

El nuevo nuevo periodismo : conversaciones sobre el oficio con los mejores escritores estadounidendes de no ficción by Robert S Boynton( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

En la década de los setenta, Tom Wolfe, Gay Talese y otros escritores estadounidenses impulsaron el llamado Nuevo Periodismo, movimiento que revolucionó el género periodístico al situarlo al nivel de la mejor literatura, tanto por las audaces técnicas narrativas empleadas como por la novedosa forma de explorar los temas y los personajes. Cuarenta años después, Robert S. Boynton define en este libro lo que él denomina el "nuevo Nuevo Periodismo", y lo hace a través de una serie de conversaciones con diecinueve profesionales cuya labor continúa y actualiza el legado de sus predecesores. Estos "nuevos nuevos periodistas" son ante todo reporteros que se implican a fondo en sus investigaciones, como Ted Conover, que vivió durante meses como un vagabundo; Jon Krakauer, que acompañó una expedición al Everest de funesto desenlace; o Adrian Nicole LeBlanc, que dedicó casi diez años a escribir un reportaje sobre una familia del Bronx. Estrategias de inmersión que ilustran el análisis de los problemas más candentes de la actualidad y le dan una dimensión real. Las entrevistas recogidas en El nuevo Nuevo Periodismo revelan los métodos, las fuentes de inspiración, los objetivos y las inquietudes de un grupo de periodistas que han infundido nueva fuerza a una profesión apasionante y más necesaria que nunca.
