Hans Koning A Walk with Love and Death


During the plague year of 1358, Heron, a French student, decides to walk to the sea and then to seek passage to England. His journey symbolizes freedom, as he turns his back on both the ruling oligarchy and the peasant armies forming all over Europe. He travels through a chaotic wasteland, where armies clash for unknown reasons, where the barren countryside is plagued by robbers and warlords. He meets death, destruction, and famine before finally finding Claudia, the daughter of a medieval lord. Heron’s quest, stemming from a desire to create an ideal world out of a violently cruel one, leads him through despair and danger, before delivering him to love. Originally published in 1961, A Walk with Love and Death was the third novel by Hans Koning (Koningsberger) and was directed as a film by John Huston in 1969.

Jacobson H. The Dog\`s Last Walk


Week after week, for eighteen years, the Booker Prize-winning novelist Howard Jacobson wrote a weekly column for the Independent, reflecting in inimitable style on the sacred and the profane in turn, the frivolous and the serious, the deeply personal and the most universal.The shame and humiliation inherent in death is explored with frank astuteness. Matisse, darts and the power of love are celebrated; while cyclists are very much censured. And meanwhile, a beloved old Labrador walks his last walk as life elsewhere hurtles on and away.The Dog`s Last Walk is a collection of wisdom and iconoclasm for our uncertain times, and one that reveals one of our greatest writers in all his humanity.

Loreal Novella A Walk Through Life's Doors


A Walk Through Life’s Doors is my second book of poems. It is my description of what poetry is to me. It is what I use to process my life’s ups and downs and the good and bad—memories that I want to remember. These are poems of the places my heart has been to; it’s a journey through my world.
I believe that this book of poetry will relate to many of you who have gone through so many of life’s experiences dealing with love, hope, anger, and death. These poems live somewhere between a poem and a short story of my life, and I cherish them because I have lived in each one of them.

As the terrible events of the past unfold, Hartley finds his own kind of deliverance.‘The Zanzibar Chest’ is a powerful story about a man witnessing and confronting extreme violence and being broken down by it, and of a son trying to come to terms with the death of a father whom he also saw as his best friend.

Tom Harpur There Is Life After Death


What happens when we die? Will we simply dissolve into nothingness, or will we survive death in some other form? Issues of death and dying have consumed humanity from time immemorial. In our modern western culture, we have tended out of fear to deny and push death away. And yet, a healthy consideration of this issue can help us embrace and understand what happens to us when we die. There is Life After Death is Tom Harpur’s classic examination of death and dying. Now fully revised and updated, here is a new edition of a book that weighs the scientific, religious and anecdotal evidence of survival of death and what happens after we die. The likelihood of death being a portal to other forms of existence is argued persuasively. Tom Harpur looks at the witness of near-death experiences, and examines the idea of reincarnation, as well as the claims of channelers and spirit mediums. Most importantly, the author looks at how the great world religions from Christianity, Judaism and Islam to Hinduism, Buddhism and Native Spirituality among others, deal with life after death. This book is a powerful summary of what we know and believe about death. There is Life After Death is both illuminating and comforting in its message and conclusions – and goes a long way in putting to rest one of the last great taboos of our culture.
