The Noonday Cemetery And Other Stories

by Gustaw Herling, The Noonday Cemetery And Other Stories Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Noonday Cemetery And Other Stories books, Selected by "The Los Angeles Times Book Review" as one of the ten Best Fiction Books of 2003. "The Noonday Cemetery & Other Stories," selected by Herling himself shortly before his death in 2000, is a collection of thirteen brilliant stories spanning the last twenty years of his life. His novel "The Island" was published to great acclaim in 1993, and his memoir, "A World Apart," is among the most powerful accounts of life in the Soviet gulag. "Volcano and Miracle," published in 1996, contains short fiction and prose writings from his "Journal Written at Night," But nowhere before have Herling's best stories--and Herling was indeed a master of the short story--been compiled and published in English translation. In "The Noonday Cemetery," an eerie graveyard on an Italian hillside overlooks the sea and hides the secrets of a murder (or suicide?). "Beata, Santa" describes the plight of a young Polish woman raped by Serbs, who is pressured by the Catholic Church to keep her child. In "A Madrigal of Mourning," a Russian woman musicologist becomes obsessed with Carlo Gesualdo (1560-1613), Prince of Venosa, a madrigalist and murderer. These timeless stories, dealing with moral, often historical, subjects and written in passionate, deeply affecting prose, affirm without a doubt the assessment by "The Boston Globe" that Herling is "a writer of stylistic mastery and moral depth, who deserves to be placed among the best in any language."
