On the very edge of nowhere, prospectors long ago found iron ore and mined it, and workers traveled from all over the world to settle and make their homes there. It is against this historical backdrop that the people live out their desires and unfinished stories in the early summer of 1960. Betty Larsen, raising her lover´s daughter on her own, waits impatiently for him to return. Skinny old Gertrude, who rounds the block headlong a dozen times a day, hears the bugs beneath the cut grass and the hysteria of a new season happening. And on the next block, Nicky Marodi, just returned from a state hospital for the mentally ill, lurches along in his new freedom. It is the first day of summer vacation, and the trees have blossomed in the brightest green. Meanwhile, three neighborhood girls band together to explore an abandoned house, where they find mysteries in every room: half-packed boxes, what looks like blood, and the mementos of lives they try to imagine. But theirs is not the only mystery. In fact mysteries and secrets abound. Betty´s lover does not return. Gertrude suddenly experiences a longing she has never known. The girls encounter glints of magic that change each of them unexpectedly, even as a band of marauding teenage hoodlums invade their block and as Nicky lands in jail and the old Italians tend their gardens, claiming the land as their own. A poetic and luscious paean of a particular place and time, Rare Birds interweaves the stories of these odd and dear characters, who could not have guessed they would be so well remembered. 1.

In a narrative that reads like a thriller, an award-winning journalist exposes the troubling truth behind the world´s first act of nuclear terrorism. On November 1, 2006, Alexander Litvinenko sipped tea in London´s Millennium Hotel. Hours later, the Russian émigré and former intelligence officer, who was sharply critical of Russian president Vladimir Putin, fell ill and within days was rushed to the hospital. Fatally poisoned by a rare radioactive isotope slipped into his drink, Litvinenko issued a dramatic deathbed statement accusing Putin himself of engineering his murder. Alan S. Cowell, then London Bureau Chief of the New York Times, who covered the story from its inception, has written the definitive story of this assassination and of the profound international implications of this first act of nuclear terrorism. Who was Alexander Litvinenko? What had happened in Russia since the end of the Cold War to make his life there untenable and in severe jeopardy even in England, the country that had granted him asylum? And how did he really die? The life of Alexander Litvinenko provides a riveting narrative in its own right, culminating in an event that rang alarm bells among western governments at the ease with which radioactive materials were deployed in a major Western capital to commit a unique crime. But it also evokes a wide range of other issues: Russia´s lurch to authoritarianism, the return of the KGB to the Kremlin, the perils of a new cold war driven by Russia´s oil riches, and Vladimir Putin´s thirst for power.Cowell provides a remarkable and detailed reconstruction both of how Litvinenko died and of the issues surrounding his murder. A masterful work of investigative reporting, The Terminal Spy offers unprecedented insight into one of the most chilling true stories of our time. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Lee.
