Professor Thomas Bernhard,: Concrete



Instead of the book he s meant to write, Rudolph, a Viennese musicologist, produces this dark and grotesquely funny account of small woes writ large, of profound horrors detailed and rehearsed to the point of distraction. We learn of Rudolph s sister, whose help he invites, then reviles as malevolent meddling; his really marvelous house, which he hates; the suspicious illness he carefully nurses; his ten-year-long attempt to write the perfect opening sentence; and, finally, his escape to the island of Majorca, which turns out to be the site of someone else s very real horror story. A brilliant and haunting tale of procrastination, failure, and despair, "Concrete" is a perfect example of why Thomas Bernhard is remembered as one of the masters of contemporary European fiction (George Steiner)."

"There Will Be Blood" wins a 2008 Golden Globes Award. Read about it here."There Will Be Blood" wins two 2008 Academy Awards. Read about it here.Penguin Books is proud to now be the sole publisher of "Oil!," the classic 1927 novel by Upton Sinclair. After writing "The Jungle," his scathing indictment of the meatpacking industry, Sinclair turned his sights on the early days of the California oil industry in a highly entertaining story featuring a cavalcade of characters including senators, oil magnets, Hollywood film starlets, and a crusading evangelist. This lively and panoramic book, which was recently cited by David Denby in the "New Yorker "as being Sinclair's "most readable" novel, is now the inspiration for the Paramount Vantage major motion picture, "There Will Be Blood." It is the long-awaited film from Paul Thomas Anderson, one of the most admired Concrete free epub filmmakers working today whose previous movies, "Boogie Nights" and "Magnolia" were both multiple Academy Award nominees. The movie stars Oscar-winner Daniel Day-Lewis ("Gangs of New York," "My Left Foot") and Paul Dano ("Little Miss Sunshine").Paramount Vantage will be releasing the film in New York and Los Angeles on December 26, 2007 and go nationwide in January. This is the same company responsible for "Babel" and "A Mighty Heart" and the current releases, "Into the Wild, Margot at the Wedding," and "The Kite Runner."As wars rage on in the oil region and as anxiety over natural resources rise, the subject of this book, which celebrates its 80th anniversary in 2007, is more timely than ever.
