The Up-Down PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Up-Down free pdf Following the death of his mother, Lula Pace Fortune Ripley, Pace decides to close his construction business and leave his home in New Orleans to undertake an unorthodox religious pilgrimage. Intrigued by the Up-Down, a mystical fifth direction mythologised by ancient cultures, Pace sets out on a search for the centre of consciousness. Pace's voyage is outward, among strangers, and inward into the fifth direction that is the up-down, in a sweeping, voracious human tale that takes no prisoners, sees extreme brutalities and expresses a childlike wonder.

About Barry Gifford

The author of more than forty works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, which have been translated into over twenty-five languages, BARRY GIFFORDwrites distinctly American stories for readers around the globe. From screenplays and librettos to his acclaimed Sailor and Lula novels, Gifford s writing is as distinctive as it is difficult to classify. Born in the Seneca Hotel on Chicago s Near North Side, he relocated in his adolescence to New Orleans. The move proved significant: throughout his career, Gifford s fiction part-noir, part-picaresque, always entertaining is born of the clash between what he has referred to as his Northern Side and Southern Side. Gifford has been recipient of awards from PEN, the National Endowment for the Arts, the American Library Association, the Writers Guild of America and the Christopher Isherwood Foundation. His novel"Wild at Heart"was adapted into the 1990 Palme d Or-winning film of the same name. Gifford lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. "From the Trade Paperback edition.""
