Paradise lost by John Milton( )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Often considered the greatest epic in any modern language, Paradise Lost tells the story of the revolt of Satan, his banishment from Heaven, and the ensuing fall of Man with his expulsion from Eden. It is a tale of immense drama and excitement, of innocence pitted against corruption, of rebellion and treachery, in which God and Satan fight a bitter battle for control of mankind's destiny. The struggle ranges across heaven, hell, and earth, as Satan and his band of rebel angels conspire against God. At the center of the conflict are Adam and Eve, motivated by all too human temptations, but whose ultimate downfall is unyielding love. Written in blank verse of unsurpassed majesty, Paradise Lost is the work of a mastermind involved in a profound search for truth
A grief observed by C. S Lewis( )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written after his wife's tragic death as a way of surviving the "mad midnight moments," "A grief observed" is C.S. Lewis's honest reflection on the fundamental issues of life, death, and faith in the midst of loss. This work contains his concise, genuine reflections on that period: "Nothing will shake a man, or at any rate a man like me, out of his merely verbal thinking and his merely notional beliefs. He has to be knocked silly before he comes to his senses. Only torture will bring out the truth. Only under torture does he discover it himself." This is a beautiful and unflinchingly honest record of how even a stalwart believer can lose all sense of meaning in the universe and how he can gradually regain his bearings

The American by Martin Booth( )

17 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The locals in the southern Italian town where he lives call him Signor Farfalla-Mr. Butterfly-for he is a discreet gentleman who paints rare butterflies. His life is inconspicuous-mornings spent brushing at a canvas, afternoons idling in the cafes, and evenings talking with his friend, the town priest, over a glass of brandy. Yet there are other sides to this gentleman's life: Clara, the young student who moonlights in the town bordello, and another woman, who arrives with one hundred thousand dollars and a commission-but not for a painting of butterflies. With this assignment returns the dark fear that has dogged Signor Farfalla's mysterious life. Almost instantly, he senses a deadly circle closing in on him, one which he may or may not elude. Part thriller, part character study, part drama of deceit and self-betrayal, The American shows Martin Booth at the very height of his powers
