This book was released on 2020-06-11 with total page 4152 pages. Book excerpt: Nevil Shute was an English novelist and aeronautical engineer, who spent his later years living in Australia. His novels are written in a simple, highly readable style, with clearly delineated plots. An enduring theme of his novels is the dignity of work, spanning all classes. His famous novel ‘On the Beach’ (1957) reflects his pessimism for humanity in the atomic age, while ‘A Town like Alice’ (1950) tackles themes of emigration and racism, as the heroine seeks economic prosperity in a disadvantaged outback community. Several of Shute's novels explore the boundary between accepted science and rational belief, on the one hand, and mystical or paranormal possibilities, on the other. The author is noted for his unique talent of weaving his technical knowledge of engineering into the texture of his narratives. For the first time in publishing history, this eBook presents Shute’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.

This book was released on 2017-08-08 with total page 328 pages. Book excerpt: Nevil Shute was a writer whose books were frequently looked down on by literary critics and yet when he died in 1960 he was one of the best selling novelists of his day. Today, books such as A Town Like Alice and On the Beach continue to attract new generations of fans. However there was more to Shute than his books, a great deal more. Richard Thorn explores Shute’s personal and professional life, drawing from extensive research carried out using archives and sources in the UK, USA and Australia. Nevil Shute Norway began his professional life as an aeronautical engineer working on the outskirts of London for the newly established de Havilland Aircraft Company. He quickly went on to play a key role in Britain’s ill-fated and final airship programme, before co-founding an aircraft manufacturing company at the height of an economic depression. All the while, using the pseudonym Nevil Shute, he spent his time writing for relaxation in the evenings. After the Second World War, he flew a single-engined aeroplane to Australia and back in search for new material for his novels. Fascinated by the new world that he had seen, the novelist sold up and moved his family to Australia, buying a farm in a small town on the outskirts of Melbourne. For the remainder of his life, Australia was his home and the inspiration for many of his best-loved novels. Shute tells the story of the life and times of an extraordinary man who made a significant contribution to twentieth century popular literature. This book will appeal to fans of Shute’s work, those interested in his background and personal life or to readers interested in the early years of the aviation industry in Britain.

Book excerpt: Warnings of the death of the book and the degradation of literature have been prevalent for decades, yet books survive and book publishing remains a viable and important force with the media mix. At times, it is hard to distinguish book publishing from the rest of the media enterprise, since publishing houses are both independent entities and also part of newspaper, magazine, and electronic media empires. The oldest of the mass media, books were also the first to achieve a global presence, crossing easily over national and political boundaries from earliest times and serving as a venue for debate and development of thought. As testimony to their continued viability, publishing houses have been briskly bought up in the international marketplace by global media conglomerates. "Publishing Books "explores the current health and future prospects of books and the book publishing industry in the United States. It contains perspectives ranging from an insider view of publishing executives to those of agents, authors, booksellers, and readers. Dan Lacy provides an overview of the structure and economic history of book publishing. Jeremiah Kaplan predicts that books as we know them will disappear in the next century, although writers and readers will not. Gene D. Lanier contends that one worsening threat to books and publishing is the incidence of censorship. Other topics covered in "Publishing Books "include the importance of book reviews, the histories of New York's greatest bookstores, why there are so few book lovers among journalists, and the decline in quality of the writings of U.S. presidents. This volume also includes a section by Beth Luey reviewing six books on publishing. "Publishing Books "is a pioneering study of the history, current status, and future of books and their impact. It will be vital for publishers, editors, and librarians.
