Autor: Robert Barr
This greatest political novel of Robert Barr’s most beloved books has been written in years. Barr was a Scottish-Canadian author who relocated to London in 1881 where he founded the magazine „The Idler” in 1892 in collaboration with Jerome K Jerome. In 1895 he retired from its co-editorship and became a prolific novelist. „The Victors: A Romance Of Yesterday Morning & This Afternoon…” is a stirring story of a „boss” and others. Patrick Maguire. big. brawny. and smooth of tongue. early decides that there is a good thing for him in the big city. and he starts after it. How he succeeds – becoming the big „boss” by methods that are known to be practical and practiced by the initiated– is Mr. Barr’s theme. Another „live issue” treated by Mr. Barr is that of „Christian Science”. The work has a climax whose strength has rarely been equaled in modern fiction.
Autor: Thorne Smith
Another magical. mischievous Thorne Smith classic. Though Thorne Smith’s most popular works involve elements of fantasy and science fiction. the clever novel „Turnabout” takes his penchant for incorporating supernatural and magical themes in his work and puts one such plot twist to use as a comedic tool. A classic battle of the sexes. it was published in 1931 and follows a married couple who fall prey to the tricks of an Egyptian idol who grows weary of the seemingly never-ending spats between the Willows and causes them to switch bodies. As you might expect. hilarious hijinks ensue. The novel also inspired the last episode of the original series Star Trek. Turnabout Intruder.
