Summary:

Through stark observations and visceral experiences, Blood Orchid begins Charles Bowden’s dizzying excavation of the brutal, systemic violence and corruption at the roots of American society. Like a nightmarish fever dream that turns out to be our own reality, Bowden visits dying friends in skid row apartments in Los Angeles, traverses San Francisco byways lined with clubs and joints, and roams through village bars and streets in the Sierra Madre mountains. In these wanderings resides a yearning for the understanding of past and present sins, the human penchant for warfare, abuse, and oppression, and the true war between humanity, the industrialized world, and the immense tolls of our shared land. Deeply personal, hauntingly prophetic, and bracingly sharp, the start to Bowden’s harrowed quest to unearth our ugly truths remains strikingly poignant today.

Summary:

Récit prophétique et fulgurant, Orchidée de sang révélait Charles Bowden, digne héritier de Nelson Algren ou Hunter S. Thompson. L'écrivain américain poursuit ici sa traversée hallucinée des Etats-Unis, à la rencontre des fantômes de l'histoire collective, mêlant tout à la fois paysages, faits divers, politique et société en une fresque qui renferme les questions essentielles de notre temps. On y croise un prisonnier obsédé par son art, des délinquants sexuels dont les pulsions ne sont pas aussi folles que nous pourrions l'imaginer, un assassin dont l'exécution n'apporte aucune réponse. Saisissant avec autant d'amour que de rage les lignes de force qui gouvernent le monde, la plume de Bowden interroge la soif de vivre dans une ère de pillage globalisé et de violence déchaînée, signant une oeuvre inclassable dont la portée et la vitalité ne peuvent laisser indifférent.

Summary:

En 1994, John Laroche et trois Indiens séminoles comparaissent devant un tribunal de Floride pour répondre de l'accusation d'un vol d'orchidées d'une espèce extrêmement rare et dont la valeur marchande est inestimable. Ce fait divers, pour le moins original, est au coeur de l'enquête de Susan Orlean : brillante journaliste et écrivain, le New Yorker l'envoie pour couvrir le procès. Elle s'embarque finalement pendant près d'un an aux côtés des suspects, dans les marais du Fakahatchee, à la recherche de l'orchidée fantôme. Admirable galerie de portraits de botanistes un tant soit peu obsessionnels, l'enquête nous plonge dans l'univers rocambolesque des collectionneurs d'orchidées. Une histoire unique et truculente, où les passions, enivrantes, peuvent se révéler dangereuses.

Summary:

A hundred years ago, the Minotaurs saved Caeli-Amur from conquest. Now, three very different people may hold the keys to the city's survival. Once, it is said, gods used magic to create reality, with powers that defied explanation. But the magic—or science, if one believes those who try to master the dangers of thaumaturgy—now seems more like a dream. Industrial workers for House Technis, farmers for House Arbor, and fisher folk of House Marin eke out a living and hope for a better future. But the philosopher-assassin Kata plots a betrayal that will cost the lives of godlike Minotaurs; the ambitious bureaucrat Boris Autec rises through the ranks as his private life turns to ashes; and the idealistic seditionist Maximilian hatches a mad plot to unlock the vaunted secrets of the Great Library of Caeli-Enas, drowned in the fabled city at the bottom of the sea, its strangeness visible from the skies above. In a novel of startling originality and riveting suspense, these three people, reflecting all the hopes and dreams of the ancient city, risk everything for a future that they can create only by throwing off the shackles of tradition and superstition, as their destinies collide at ground zero of a conflagration that will transform the world . . . or destroy it. Unwrapped Sky is a stunningly original debut by Rjurik Davidson, a young master of the New Weird. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Summary:

The twenty-two essays in this collection examine a wide scope of past and present cultural interrelations and interdependences in the Americas. Exploring mutual gazes, separations, and linkages, this volume highlights regional, national, and transnational contacts in the New World; it raises awareness of the contrasts that separate American cultures; and it examines the confluences of New World issues, traditions, and practices. Contributing to the emerging field of Inter-American Studies, this collection increases our theoretical understanding of cultural hybridity and demonstrates that cultural hybridity is by no means a recent phenomenon in the Americas.

Summary:

As stated many times before the purpose of Orchid Biology, Reviews and Perspectives (OB) is to present reviews on all aspects of orchids. The aim is not to balance every volume, but to make a balanced and wide ranging presentation of orchids in the series as a whole. The chapters in this, the last volume of the series, range over a number of topics which were not covered before. Singapore is justly famed for its orchids. They can be seen on arrival (or dep- ture) in its modern, highly efficient and comfortable Changi Airport and on the way from it to town. Vanda Miss Joaquim, the first hybrid to come from Singapore became its National Flower. This natural hybrid can be seen on its currency, stamps, and public and private decorations. Many excellent breeders, starting with Prof. Eric Holttum who bred the first man made hybrid (Spathoglottis Primrose), produced numerous magnificent hybrids and won countless awards in Singapore and elsewhere. These hybrids served to enrich the country’s orchid mystique. In the opening chapter of this volume Dr. Teoh Eng Soon (Western style: Eng Soon Teoh), himself a prize winning orchid breeder, grower and author writes about some of the breeders who contributed to the Singapore orchid fame. Prof. Hans Fitting was one of the best known plant physiologists of his time. As a young man he studied the effects of pollen on orchid flowers.

Summary:

As the world closes in around them, two Nazis hide out in a tropical paradise The servants sense something strange about the two old men. They are not sure what business Dr. Langhof and Dr. Ludtz have in El Caliz, but they are certain that whatever they do in their colonial mansion is the work of the devil. Although they do not know the specifics of the two men’s crimes, the servants are right to suspect something sinister. The men are Nazis, fugitives from international law who fled to this South American haven in the chaotic days after World War II. Langhof brought with him a cache of stolen diamonds, with which he bought their safety from the small nation’s corrupt president. He passes his days cultivating a stunning greenhouse full of orchids, and meditating on the evil acts that fill his past. For now they are safe, but fate has many ways of dealing out justice.
