7 On The Beach
Nevil Shute Heinemann 1957 B000X5UUQG Hardcover Good 
B000X5UUQG ~Good. No DJ. 1st edition, 1957 from Heinemann, light bumping and rubbing to corners and edges. Bookseller's notation on FFEP. Hardcover. Light to moderate shelf wear to boards; satisfaction guaranteed. Nevil Shute?s most powerful novel?a bestseller for decades after its 1957 publication?is an unforgettable vision of a post-apocalyptic world. After a nuclear World War III has destroyed most of the globe, the few remaining survivors in southern Australia await the radioactive cloud that is heading their way and bringing certain death to everyone in its path. Among them is an American submarine captain struggling to resist the knowledge that his wife and children in the United States must be dead. Then a faint Morse code signal is picked up, transmitting from somewhere near Seattle, and Captain Towers must lead his submarine crew on a bleak tour of the ruined world in a desperate search for signs of life. Both terrifying and intensely moving, On the Beach is a remarkably convincing portrait of how ordinary people might face the most unimaginable nightmare.

9 The Bridge Of San Luis Rey
Wilder, Thornton The Heritage Press 1962 B002270K8G Good 
B002270K8G ~Good. No DJ. Hardcover. Covers sun-faded. Lacking slipcase. Light to moderate shelf wear to boards; satisfaction guaranteed. The Bridge Of San Luis Rey, Thornton Wilder. The Heritage Press, 1962. 137 pages, illustrated by Jean Charlot in color, with introduction by Granville Hicks. Description: Blue and green boards with black and gold design on front and back, gold lettering on the spine only, marbled edges. "On Friday noon, July the twentieth, 1714, the finest bridge in all Peru broke and precipitated five travelers into the gulf below." With this celebrated sentence, Thornton Wilder begins The Bridge of San Luis Rey, one of the towering achievements in American fiction and a novel read throughout the world. By chance, a monk witnesses the tragedy. Brother Juniper seeks to prove that it was divine intervention rather than chance that led to the deaths of those who perished in the tragedy. His study leads to his own death -- and to the author's timeless investigation into the nature of love and the meaning of the human condition. The Bridge of San Luis Rey is now reissued in this handsome hardcover edition featuring a new foreword by Russell Banks. Tappan Wilder has written an engaging and thought-provoking afterword, which includes unpublished notes for the Pulitzer Prize?winning novel, illuminating photographs, and other remarkable documentary material. Granville Hicks's insightful comment about Wilder suggests an inveterate truth: "As a craftsman he is second to none, and there are few who have looked deeper into the human heart.
