The Old Man

Author : Thomas Perry
Publisher : Grove/Atlantic, Inc.
Release : 2017-01-03
Category : Fiction
ISBN : 9780802189769


Book The Old Man Description/Summary:

From the New York Times–bestselling author of Poison Flower: a retired intelligence officer is caught in “[a] harrowing hunt-and-hide adventure” (The New York Times). To all appearances, Dan Chase is a harmless retiree in Vermont with two big mutts and a grown daughter he keeps in touch with by phone. But most sixty-year-old widowers don’t have multiple driver’s licenses, savings stockpiled in banks across the country, or two Beretta Nanos stashed in the spare bedroom closet. Most have not spent decades on the run. Thirty-five years ago, as a young army intelligence hotshot, Chase was sent to Libya to covertly assist a rebel army. When the plan turned sour, Chase acted according to his conscience—and triggered consequences he never could have anticipated. To this day, someone still wants him dead. And just when he thought he was finally safe, Chase is confronted with the history he spent much of his life trying to escape. “Perry drives deep into Jack Reacher territory in this stand-alone [novel] . . . Swift, unsentimental, and deeply satisfying. Liam Neeson would be perfect in the title role.” —Kirkus Reviews

In these and other intimate conversations, the book explores and honors the particular way that each man faces four challenges of living a good old age: Am I still a man? Do I still matter? What is the meaning of my life? Am I loved? Readers will come to see how each man -- even the most famous -- faces universal challenges. Personal stories about work, love, sexuality, and hope mingle with stories about illness, loss and death. This book will strengthen each of us as we and our loved ones anticipate and navigate our way through the passages of old age.

Publisher : Pickle Partners Publishing
Release : 2016-03-28
Category : History
ISBN : 9781786258946


Book Old Man’s Boy Grows Up Description/Summary:

The year 1957 marked the publication of Robert Ruark’s best seller, The Old Man and the Boy, a tale of “infinite warmth and wisdom, love and understanding “ It told of the Boy, Ruark himself, and the Old Man, his grandfather, as they roamed the North Carolina outdoors together, savoring the sights, sounds, and smells of the earth. As they explored the woods and fished the streams, the Old Man talked and the Boy listened. And as he listened, the Boy learned. The Old Man is now gone from the earth, but not from the memory of the Boy. In the pages of the present book, THE OLD MAN’S BOY GROWS OLDER, the Boy has grown up to new adventures, to college, to a seaman’s berth on a North Atlantic freighter, to African safaris, and treks to the world’s far corners—and to other dogs and boys who now follow him. But the Old Man is still there. He is there in anecdotal memories awakened by the sight of a tiger in Africa, a dog in Spain, or by the tantalizing smell of a hearty meal prepared over an outdoor fire. The echoes of the Old Man’s patient instruction, his gentle humor, and his warm companionship are here again, guiding the Boy as he meets his adult problems and adventures. Today Robert Ruark is world famous as a newspaper columnist and author, big-game hunter and world traveler. His eight books, ranging from the hilarious Grenadine Etching to the realism of his best-selling novels, Something of Value and Poor No More, have won him a wide and faithful audience. Those who are already familiar with the “outdoor Ruark” will again find a wealth of entertaining and instructive lore, a poetic and nostalgic reliving of the seasons on these pages. Those readers, young and old, who have not yet looked into this corner of Ruark’s world are new in for a delightful discovery.

ISBN : 9780525566069


Book The Old Man and the Gun Description/Summary:

Now a major motion picture starring Robert Redford and Sissy Spacek, The Old Man and the Gun is here joined by two other riveting true-crime tales. "The Old Man and the Gun" is the incredible story of a bank robber and prison escape artist who modeled himself after figures like Pretty Boy Floyd and who, even in his seventies, refuses to retire. "True Crime" follows the twisting investigation of a Polish detective who suspects that a novelist planted clues in his fiction to an actual murder. And "The Chameleon" recounts how a French imposter assumes the identity of a missing boy from Texas and infiltrates the boy's family, only to soon wonder whether he is the one being conned. In this mesmerizing collection, David Grann shows why he has been called a "worthy heir to Truman Capote" and "simply the best narrative nonfiction writer working today," as he takes the reader on a journey through some of the most intriguing and gripping real-life tales from around the world.

The Old Man and the Swamp

Author : John Sellers
Publisher : Simon and Schuster
Release : 2011-05-03
Category : Biography & Autobiography
ISBN : 9781416592464


Book The Old Man and the Swamp Description/Summary:

I have nothing against snakes, provided that they’re hundreds of miles away from me. And I have nothing against my dad, given the same set of conditions. In a fit of questionable judgment, consummate indoorsman John Sellers tags along on a journey to search for snakes with his eccentric, aging father—an obsessive fan of Bob Dylan, a giver of terrible gifts, a drinker of boxed wine, a minister- turned-heretic, and, most importantly, the self-designated guardian of the threatened copperbelly water snake. The quest is their fumbling attempt to reconnect. Decades of bitterness, substance abuse, acrimonious divorce, and divergent opinions about personal hygiene have conspired to make the two estranged. Sellers has just begun to develop a new appreciation for the American wilderness, and all the slithering creatures that populate it, when his father’s deteriorating health thwarts their mission and disturbs their tentative peace. Determined to finish what they started, he ventures back into the swamp— alone, but more connected to his dad than ever. With big-hearted humor and irreverence, The Old Man and the Swamp tells the story of a father who always lived on his own terms and the son who struggled to make sense of it all.

With The Old Man and Me, written when Dundy was living in England in the early 1960s, she tackles the American girl in London, a bit older but certainly no wiser. Honey Flood (if that’s her real name) arrives in London with only her quick wits and a scheme. To get what she wants, she’ll have to seduce the city’s brightest literary star, no matter how many would-be bohemians she has to charm, how many smoky jazz clubs she has to brave, or how many Lady Something-Somethings she has to humor. But with success within her reach, Honey finds that in making the Soho scene, she’s made a big mistake.
