English Book Club: ‘The Firm’ by John Grisham

The novel: The firm
The firmThe Firm is a 1991 legal thriller. It was the first widely recognized book written by John Grisham; in 1993, after selling 1.5 million copies, it was made into a film starring Tom Cruise and Gene Hackman. Grisham’s first novel, A Time to Kill, came into recognition afterwards due to this novel’s success.
Mitchell Y. “Mitch” McDeere is a graduate from Western Kentucky University with a degree in accounting, who has passed his Certified Public Accountant exam on the first attempt and graduated third in his class at Harvard Law School.
Mitch spurns offers from law firms in New York and Chicago in favor of signing with Bendini, Lambert and Locke, a small tax law firm based in Memphis. He finds the firm’s offer too generous to resist.
When Mitch McDeere signed on with Bendini, Lambert & Locke of Memphis, he thought he and his beautiful wife, Abby, were on their way. The firm leased him a BMW, paid off his school loans, arranged a mortgage and hired him a decorator. Mitch McDeere should have remembered what his brother Ray — doing fifteen years in a Tennessee jail — already knew. You never get nothing for nothing. Now the FBI has the lowdown on Mitch’s firm and needs his help. Mitch is caught between a rock and a hard place, with no choice — if he wants to live.

The author: John Grisham
John Ray Grisham Jr. was born on February 8, 1955 in Jonesboro,john-grisham-photo-credit-bob-krasner- Arkansas. As a child, he dreamed of being a professional baseball player but he shifted gears and majored in accounting at Mississippi State University. After graduating from law school at Ole Miss in 1981, he went on to practice law for nearly a decade, specializing in criminal defense and personal injury litigation. In 1983, he was elected to the state House of Representatives and served until 1990.
One day at the DeSoto County courthouse, Grisham overheard the harrowing testimony of a twelve-year-old rape victim and was inspired to start a novel exploring what would have happened if the girl’s father had murdered her assailants. Grisham spent three years on A Time to Kill and finished it in 1987. Initially rejected by many publishers. The day after Grisham completed A Time to Kill, he began work on another novel, the story of a hotshot young attorney lured to an apparently perfect law firm that was not what it appeared.
Since first publishing A Time to Kill in 1988, Grisham has written one novel a year and all of them have become international bestsellers.
Grisham took time off from writing for several months in 1996 to return, after a five-year hiatus, to the courtroom. He was honoring a commitment made before he had retired from the law to become a full-time writer: representing the family of a railroad brakeman killed when he was pinned between two cars. Preparing his case with the same passion and dedication as his books’ protagonists, Grisham successfully argued his clients’ case, earning them a jury award of $683,500—the biggest verdict of his career.
When he’s not writing, Grisham devotes time to charitable causes.The man who dreamed of being a professional baseball player now serves as the local Little League commissioner. The six ballfields he built on his property have played host to over 350 kids on 26 Little League teams.

English Book Club: ‘Dracula’ by Bram Stoker

dracula-cover-2Dracula is a gothic horror novel. It introduced Count Dracula character and established many conventions of subseqüent vampire fantasy.

The novel tells the story of Dracula’s attempt to move from Transylvania to England so that he may find new blood and spread the undead curse, and of the battle between Dracula and a small group of men and a woman led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing.

The story is told in epistolary format, as a series of letters, diary entries, newspaper articles, and ships’ log entries, whose narrators are the novel’s protagonists, and occasionally supplemented with newspaper clippings relating events not directly witnessed.

The events portrayed in the novel take place chronologically and largely in England and Transylvania during the 1890s and all transpire within the same year between 3 May and 6 November. A short note is located at the end of the final chapter written 7 years after the events outlined in the novel.

Throughout the 1880s and 1890s, authors such as H. Rider Haggard, Rudyard Kipling, Robert Louis Stevenson, Arthur Conan Doyle, and H. G. Wells wrote many tales in which fantastic creatures threatened the British Empire.

Victorian readers enjoyed Dracula as a good adventure story like many others, but it did not reach its legendary status until later in the 20th century when film versions began to appear.

Before writing Dracula, Stoker spent seven years researching European folklore and stories of vampires, being most influenced by Emily Gerard’s 1885 essay “Transylvania Superstitions” which includes content about a vampire myth.[10][11] Some historians are convinced that a historic figure, Vlad III Dracula, often called Vlad the Impaler, was the model for Stoker’s Count although there is no supporting evidence.

bramstockerAbraham “Bram” Stoker (8 November 1847 – 20 April 1912) was an Irish author, best known today for his 1897 Gothic novel Dracula. During his lifetime, he was better known as the personal assistant of actor Henry Irving and business manager of the Lyceum Theatre in London, which Irving owned.

Stoker was the third of seven children and was bedridden with an unknown illness until he started school at the age of seven. He was educated in a private school and then graduated with honours as a B.A. in Mathematics.

Stoker worked during 27 years as acting and business manager of Herny Irving’s Lyceum Theatre, London. Working for Irving, the most famous actor of his time, and managing one of the most successful theatres in London made Stoker a notable if busy man.

Stoker visited the English coastal town of Whitby in 1890, and that visit is said to be part of the inspiration for Dracula. He began writing novels while manager for Henry Irving and secretary and director of London’s Lyceum Theatre, beginning with The Snake’s Pass in 1890 and Dracula in 1897.

After suffering a number of strokes, Stoker died in London on 20 April 1912. Some biographers attribute the cause of death to tertiary syphilis, others to overwork. He was cremated, and his ashes were placed in a display urn at Golders Green Crematorium in north London.

The story of Dracula has been the basis for numerous films. You can know more about cinema adaptations in an article published at the Prestatge Virtual de Cinema of Xarxa de Biblioteques Municipals de la Diputació de Barcelona.

The English Book Club will meet again to coment this book on saturday November 11th.

English Book Club: ‘1984’ by George Orwell

georgeorwellxobeygiantprintset-1984coverbyshepardfairey1984, is a dystopian novel published in 1949 by English author George Orwell. The novel is set in Airstrip One (formerly known as Great Britain), a province of the superstate Oceania in a world of perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance, and public manipulation.

The superstate and its residents are dictated to by a political regime euphemistically named English Socialism, shortened to “Ingsoc” in Newspeak, the government’s invented language.

The superstate is under the control of the privileged elite of the Inner Party, a party and government that persecutes individualism and independent thinking as “thoughtcrime”, which is enforced by the “Thought Police”.

1984 is a classic novel in content, plot and style. Many of its terms and concepts, such as Big Brother, doublethink, thoughtcrime, Newspeak, Room 101, telescreen, 2 + 2 = 5, and memory hole, have entered into common use since its publication in 1949.

Nineteen Eighty-Four popularised the adjective Orwellian, which describes official deception, secret surveillance, and manipulation of recorded history by a totalitarian or authoritarian state.

George Orwell “encapsulate” the thesis at the heart of his unforgiving novel” in 1944, the implications of dividing the world up into Zones of influence that had been conjured by the Tehran Conference and three years later he wrote most of it on the Scottish island of Jura, from 1947 to 1948, despite being seriously ill with tuberculosis.

The Last Man in Europe was an early title for the novel but in a letter dated 22 October 1948 to his publisher, eight months before publication, Orwell wrote about hesitating between The Last Man in Europe and Nineteen Eighty-Four. Warburg suggested changing the main title to a more commercial one.

Throughout its publication history, Nineteen Eighty-Four has been either banned or legally challenged, as subversive or ideologically corrupting

george-orwellGeorge Orwell was the the pen name of Eric Arthur Blair (25 June 1903 – 21 January 1950 in British India) was an English novelist, essayist, journalist, and critic. His work is marked by lucid prose, awareness of social injustice, opposition to totalitarianism, and outspoken support of democratic socialism.

When Eric was one year old, his mother took him and his sister to England. His mother’s diary from 1905 describes a lively round of social activity and artistic interests. Blair’s academic performance reports suggest that he neglected his academic studies, but during his time at Eton he worked to produce a College magazine, The Election Times.

The family decided that Blair should join the Imperial Police, and send him to India. Working as an imperial policeman gave him considerable responsibility while most of his contemporaries were still at university in England. But Blair, spent much of his time alone, reading or pursuing non-pukka activities, such as attending the churches of the Karen ethnic group.

Back in England, he settled in the family home. In imitation of Jack London, whose writing he admired Blair started to explore the poorer parts of London and recorded his experiences of the low life for use in The Spike, his first published essay in English, and in the second half of his first book, Down and out in Paris and London (1933).

Orwell set out for Spain on about 23 December 1936, dining with Henry Miller in Paris on the way. The American writer told Orwell that going to fight in the Civil War out of some sense of obligation or guilt was ‘sheer stupidity,’ and that the Englishman’s ideas ‘about combating Fascism, defending democracy, etc., etc., were all baloney.

10_george_orwell_bbc_640x390

Orwell wrote literary criticism, poetry, fiction, and polemical journalism. He is best known for the allegorical novella Animal Farm (1945) and the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949). His non-fiction works, including The Road to Wigan Pier (1937), documenting his experience of working class life in the north of England, and Homage to Catalonia (1938), an account of his experiences in the Spanish Civil War, are widely acclaimed.

Nineteen Eighty-Four has been adapted for the cinema, radio, television and theatre at least twice each, as well as for other art media, such as ballet and opera.

Speak Up. La teoria del todo

portada

revistaSpeak Up és una revista en anglès pensada i dissenyada per aprendre l’idioma, però és molt més que això: es tracta d’un magazine amb opinions, informacions, crítica i totes les novetats imaginables sobre el món del cinema i l’espectacle. La revista porta entrevistes i articles, uns d’un nivell més avançat que d’altres, de caràcter variat, però que normalment giren al voltant de algun aspecte de la cultura britànica o nord-americà. Sempre vénen acompanyats d’un glossari on es tradueixen les paraules més complicades, a més d’algunes explicacions més extenses pel que fa a algun terme o expressió.

La revista inclou un CD multimèdia per escoltar els àudios que reprodueixen alguns dels articles i entrevistes (i fins i tot per poder descarregar-los com a arxiu mp3 per dur-amb tu còmodament), la qual cosa sol ser molt útil a causa de les diferències que es fan pel que fa als diversos accents. A més, al CD vénen alguns exercicis de listening.

Però a més a més inclou una pel·lícula d’actualitat en versió original en anglès que inclou subtítols en anglès amb la reproducció exacta dels diàlegs, subtítols en castellà, versió original sense subtítols i la versió doblada al castellà.

Totes les pel·lícules incorporen un llibret on es detalla la fitxa tècnica de la pel·lícula, així com informació sobre la trama i els actors. A més, presenta una sèrie de glossaris amb una gran quantitat de vocabulari, molt útils tota vegada que estan organitzats segons la part de la pel·lícula en la qual apareixen, per la qual cosa podràs guiar-te segons el numeret que aparegui en una cantonada de la pantalla.

A la Xarxa de Biblioteques Municipals de Vilanova i la Geltrú trobareu més de 160 referències de pel·lícules de la col·lecció Speak Up en aquest format.

Avui us presentem com a novetat l’última fotogramaincorporació d’aquesta col·lecció, La teoria del todo, dirigida per James Marsh i interpretada per Eddie Redmayne, Emily Watson i Felicity Jones. El guió és de Anthony McCarten a partir del llibre de memòries de Jane Hawking.

La pel·lícula La teoria del todo narra la relació entre el cèlebre astrofísic Stephen Hawking i la seva primera dona, Jane, des que tots dos es van conèixer sent estudiants a la Universitat de Cambridge a principis dels 60 i al llarg de 25 anys, especialment en la seva lluita junts contra la malaltia degenerativa que va postrar al famós científic en una cadira de rodes.

El punt de vista de la pel·lícula ve marcat per la mirada de Jane, al capdavall són les seves memòries les adaptades. Això explica que determinats aspectes en la vida de Stephen, sobretot en el pla professional, quedin una mica desdibuixats: el que importa als responsables de la pel·lícula és aquesta transformació de Jane, la dona que hi ha darrera del geni, part indissociable dels èxits teòrics del seu marit, qui sense la seva ajuda potser no hauria aconseguit ni sobreviure a la malaltia.

English Book Club: ‘Strangers on a train’ by Patricia Highsmith

220px-StrangersOnATrainStrangers on a train, is a psychological thriller novel by Patricia Highsmith about two men whose lives become entangled after one of them proposes they ‘trade’ murders. He then goes ahead and fulfills his end of the imaginary bargain, leading to fatal consequences for both.

It was adapted as a film in 1951 by director Alfred Hitchcock. It has since been adapted in whole or in part for film and television several times. The novel was adapted for radio in 2004 by Craig Warner, and adapted for the stage in 2013.

Architect Guy Haines wants to divorce his unfaithful wife, Miriam, in order to marry the woman he loves, Anne Faulkner. While on a train to see his wife, he meets Charles Anthony Bruno, a psychopathic playboy who proposes an idea to “exchange murders”: Bruno will kill Miriam if Guy kills Bruno’s father; neither of them will have a motive, and the police will have no reason to suspect either of them. Guy does not take Bruno seriously, but Bruno kills Guy’s wife while Guy is away in Mexico.

Bruno informs Guy of his crime, but Guy hesitates to turn him in to the police. He realizes that Bruno could claim Guy’s complicity in the planned exchange murders; however, the longer he remains silent, the more he implicates himself. This implicit guilt becomes stronger as in the coming months Bruno makes appearances demanding that Guy honor his part of the bargain. After Bruno starts writing anonymous letters to Guy’s friends and colleagues, the pressure becomes too great, and Guy murders Bruno’s father.

Patricia Highsmpatricia highsmith2ith (1921-1975) was an American novelist and short story writer, known for her psychological thrillers, which led to more than two dozen film adaptations.

Strangers on a Train, her first novel, has been adapted for stage and screen numerous times, notably by Alfred Hitchcock in 1951. Highsmith wrote 22 novels, including her series of five novels with Tom Ripley as protagonist, and many short stories. Existentialism is the literary movement that most influenced her writing, with “Dostoyevsky and Gide through Camus and Sartre” among her favorite authors.

Published under the pseudonym of “Claire Morgan”, Highsmith wrote the first lesbian novel with a happy ending, The Price of Salt, republished 38 years later as Carol under her own name.

Highsmith was born Mary Patricia Plangman in Fort Worth, Texas. In 1927, Highsmith, her mother and her adoptive stepfather, artist Stanley Highsmith, whom her mother had married in 1924, moved to New York City.

Many of Highsmith’s novels were set in Greenwich Village, where she lived at 48 Grove Street from 1940 to 1942, before moving to 345 E. 57th Street.

Highsmith had a troubled personal life. She endured cycles of depression, some of them deep, throughout her life. She was an alcoholic who, allegedly, never had an intimate relationship that lasted for more than a few years, and she was seen by some of her contemporaries and acquaintances as misanthropic and hostile.

A lifelong diarist, Highsmith left behind eight thousand pages of handwritten notebooks and diaries. She never married or had children. Highsmith died from lung cancer in Locarno, Switzerland.

Here you can see the trailer Hitchcock’s adaptation of the novel.

English Book Club: ‘Love actually’ by Richard Curtis

Love Actually6 is a 2003 Christmas-themed romantic comedy film written and directed by Richard Curtis. It features an ensemble cast, many of whom had worked with Curtis in previous film and television projects. The screenplay delves into different aspects of love as shown through ten separate stories involving a wide variety of individuals, many of whom are shown to be interlinked as their tales progress. Most of the film was filmed on location in London.

The film begins with a voiceover from David (Hugh Grant) commenting that whenever he gets gloomy about the state of the world he thinks about the arrivals terminal at Heathrow Airport and the pure uncomplicated love felt as friends and families welcome their arriving loved ones.

The film then tells the ‘love stories’ of many people: Billy Mack and Joe; Juliet, Peter and Mark; Jamie and Aurélia; Harry, Karen and Mia; David and Natalie; Daniel, Sam, Joanna and Carol; Sarah, Karl and Michael; Colin, Tonyand the American girls; John and Judy; and Rufus.

All the stories are linked in some way, with the exception of Billy Mack and his manager, who are not acquainted with any of the other characters, but Billy appears frequently on characters’ radios and TVs, his music video twice providing an important plot device for Sam’s pursuit of Joanna; the pair also cross paths with the other characters in the closing Heathrow scene.

Richard-Curtis-Copyright-Alex-WalkerRichard Whalley Anthony Curtis (born 8 November 1956) is an English screenwriter, producer and film director, who was born in Wellington, New Zealand to Australian parents.[1] One of Britain’s most successful comedy screenwriters, he is known primarily for romantic comedy films such asFour Weddings and a Funeral, Bridget Jones’s Diary, Notting Hill and Love Actually, as well as the hit sitcoms Blackadder, Mr. Bean and The Vicar of Dibley.

He achieved a first-class Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature at Christ Church, Oxford. At the University of Oxford, Curtis met and began working withRowan Atkinson. Collaborating with Rowan Atkinson in the Oxford Revue, he appeared alongside him at his breakthrough Edinburgh Fringe show. As a result of this, Curtis was commissioned to co-write the BBC Radio 3 series The Atkinson People with Atkinson in 1978, which was transmitted in 1979. He then began to write comedy for film and TV.

First with Atkinson, and later with Ben Elton, Curtis then wrote the Blackadder series from 1983 to 1989, each season focusing upon a different era in British history.

Atkinson played the lead throughout, but Curtis remains the only person to have been a writer for every episode of Blackadder. The pair continued their collaboration with the comedy series Mr. Bean, which ran from 1990–1995. Curtis had by then already begun writing feature films.

After much hype and anticipation, the Red Nose Day special of ‘Love Actually’ aired as part of Comic Relief on Friday (24 March) night. Picking up 14 years after the film, fans found out what became of some of their favourite characters, as creator Richard Curtis gathered together the likes of Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Martine McCutcheon, Bill Nighy and Liam Neeson for a mini-reunion…

Since its launch in 1988, Red Nose Day has become something of a British institution. It’s the day, every two years, when people across the land can get together and do something funny for money at home, school and work.There’s a fantastic night of TV on the BBC, with comedy and entertainment to inspire the nation to give generously. Comic Relief spends the money raised by Red Nose Day to help people living tough lives across the UK and Africa.

English Book Club: ‘The Canterville Ghost’ by Oscar Wilde

portadaThe Canterville Ghost is a short story by Oscar Wilde. It was the first of Wilde’s stories to be published.

The story is about a family who moves to a castle haunted by the ghost of a dead nobleman, who killed his wife and was starved to death by his wife’s brothers.

The story begins when Mr Otis and family move into Canterville Chase, despite warnings from Lord Canterville that the house is haunted. Mr Otis says that he will take the furniture as well as the ghost at valuation.

At first, none of the Otis family believe in ghosts, but shortly after they move in, none of them can deny the presence of Sir Simon de Canterville. The family hears clanking chains, they witness reappearing bloodstains “on the floor just by the fireplace”, which are removed every time they appear in various forms.

But, humorously, none of these scare the Otis family in the least. In fact, upon hearing the clanking noises in the hallway, Mr Otis promptly gets out of bed and pragmatically offers the ghost Tammany Rising Sun Lubricator to oil his chains. Despite the ghost’s efforts to appear in the most gruesome guises, the family refuses to be frightened, and Sir Simon feels increasingly helpless and humiliated.

oscar-wildeOscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde (16 October 1854 – 30 November 1900) was an Irish playwright, novelist, essayist, and poet. Wilde’s mother was of Italian descent. Until he was nine, Oscar Wilde was educated at home, where a French bonne and a German governess taught him their languages. He then attended Portora Royal School. Wilde left Portora with a royal scholarship to read classics at Trinity College, Dublin, from 1871 to 1874 and afterwards, he moves to England and join the Oxford Union.

In London, he was introduced to Constance Lloyd and the couple married in 1884.

After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of London’s most popular playwrights in the early 1890s.At the height of his fame and success, while The Importance of Being Earnest (1895), was still being performed in London, Wilde had the Marquess of Queensberry prosecuted for criminal libel. The Marquess was the father of Wilde’s lover, Lord Alfred Douglas. The charge carried a penalty of up to two years in prison.

In 1897, in prison, he wrote De Profundis, which was published in 1905, a long letter which discusses his spiritual journey through his trials, forming a dark counterpoint to his earlier philosophy of pleasure. Upon his release he left immediately for France, never to return to Ireland or Britain. He died destitute in Paris at the age of 46.

English Book Club: ‘The strange case of Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde’ by Robert L. Stevenson

307104c277761bb2c2a4c2fdf35b25b3This month we’ve started a new book club for those interested in practice and improve this language. The books we’ve chosen are for people with an intermediate English level, are adapted editions, but we can also offer, for those brave, the full versions.

The first book we’re going to talk about is The strange case of Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde written by Robert L. Stevenson.

First published in 1886, the work is commonly known today as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, or simply Jekyll & Hyde.

Mr. Utterson is a London lawyer who is a friend of Dr. Jekyll. Jekyll gave up his regular practice to experiment with non-traditional medicine. Utterson is concerned because Jekyll has written a will that leaves all his money to his new partner Mr. Hyde. Utterson has heard bad things of Hyde and disliked him at first sight. The lawyer thinks his friend is being blackmailed.

One day, the lawyer is asked to identify the body of a murdered man, Sir Danvers Carew, one of Utterson’s clients. Hyde is suspected of the murder, but he has disappeared. Jekyll swears that he has not seen Hyde and has broken with him forever. The case remains unsolved and Jekyll becomes more sociable than he had been.

Suddenly, though, he locks himself into his laboratory, yelling to the servants through the door, directing them to gather chemicals for him. The servants recognize a change in his voice and think that their master has been murdered; another man has taken his place in the lab. They call Utterson who breaks down the door. On the floor lies Hyde, who has killed himself with poison. Sadly, Utterson assumes Hyde returned and killed Jekyll, but the doctor’s body is nowhere to be found.

He does find, however, a letter in which Jekyll explains his relationship to Hyde.

7414003808_a1fb733758_oRobert Louis Stevenson was born on November 13, 1850, in Edinburgh, Scotland. Stevenson traveled often, and his global wanderings lent themselves well to his brand of fiction. Stevenson developed a desire to write early in life, having no interest in the family business of lighthouse engineering. He was often abroad, usually for health reasons, and his journeys led to some of his early literary works.

In 1878, Robert Louis Stevenson saw the publication of his first volume of work, An Inland Voyage; the book provides an account of his trip from Antwerp to northern France, which he made in a canoe via the river Oise. In 1881 he published his first book of short fiction, New Arabian Nights (1882).

The 1880s were notable for both Stevenson’s declining health (which had never been good) and his prodigious literary output. He suffered from hemorrhaging lungs (likely caused by undiagnosed tuberculosis), and writing was one of the few activities he could do while confined to bed. While in this bedridden state, he wrote some of his most popular fiction, most notably Treasure Island (1883), Kidnapped (1886), Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1886), and The Black Arrow (1888).

In June 1888, Stevenson and his family set sail from San Francisco to travel the islands of the Pacific Ocean. In 1889, they arrived in the Samoan islands, where they decided to build a house and settle. Several of his later works are about the Pacific isles, including The Wrecker (1892), Island Nights’ Entertainments (1893), The Ebb-Tide (1894) and In the South Seas (1896). He died in Samoa in 1894.
