A stone for Danny Fisher by Harold Robbins( Recording )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born into a family of modest means and respectability, Danny Fisher was gradually driven downward into the world of crime, racketeering and poverty. His bitterness, his homesickness over the loss of the house in Brooklyn that was given to him for his eighth birthday, and his feud with his harsh father, pulled him one way; his natural decency and his love for a sweet Italian girl, Nellie Petito, pulled him another. Danny was a boxer -- a sensational amateur and potential champion--and he might have gone straight had the fight promoters not tried to exert pressure. Nevertheless, the driving force behind Danny's actions was always his sustaining love for Nellie. In a story that is realistic and yet compassionate, Harold Robbins reveals what makes the Danny Fishers what they are

Immaculate blue by Paul Elliott Russell( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the award-winning author of The Unreal Life of Sergey Nabokov comes the brilliantly conceived and precisely rendered novel Immaculate Blue, which explores the lives of four people - Anatole, Leigh, Chris, and Lydia - and their intermingled and unwinding desires. Set in upstate New York, the novel follows these characters as they achieve their aims in lives redolent with loss and hope, humor and sadness, union and alienation. Russell picks up the thread of his critically acclaimed novel The Salt Point 20 years later and tracks the lives of these friends, some of whom not only lost touch with each other but have also lost their way. Moving, at times shocking, and always memorable, Immaculate Blue points to where the personal and the political come together and shape our lives in unexpected ways. With this newest novel, Paul Russell reminds us of why he is one of the most important voices on the literary scene
