Ivy Books. PAPERBACK. 0140167773 MP16 . New., Ivy Books, Penguin Group USA, 2006 Very-good, clean condition. Remainder mark on bottom - NO clippings. Tight spine, clean pages. NO writing, marks or tears inside book. 374 pages. Illustrated. Synopsis "Fasman's fast-paced tale is almost all plot... These characters are better drawn than those in The Da Vinci Code." -Newsweek Jon Fasman's dizzyingly plotted intellectual thriller suggests a marriage between Dan Brown and Donna Tartt. When reporter Paul Tomm is assigned to investigate the mysterious death of a reclusive academic, he finds himself pursuing leads that date back to the twelfth century and the theft of alchemical instruments from the geographer of the Sicilian court. Now someone is trying to retrieve them. Interspersed with the present action are the stories of the men and women who came to possess those charmed-and sometimes cursed-artifacts, which have powers that go well beyond the transmutation of lead into gold. Deftly combining history, magic, suspense, and romance-and as handsomely illustrated as an ancient incunabulum-The Geographer's Library is irresistible. "A brainy noir . . . [a] winningly cryptic tale . . . a cabinet of wonders written by a novelist whose surname and sensibility fit comfortably on the shelf between Umberto Eco and John Fowles." -Los Angeles Times "One of the year's most literate and absorbing entertainments." -Kirkus Reviews The Washington Post - David Liss The Geographer's Library, by Jon Fasman, absolutely falls into the category of the arcane thriller, but it is a much more interesting and creative book than many of those making up the marketing wave on which it will no doubt attempt to ride. Yes, the story features obscure books in forgotten tongues, secret brotherhoods, exotic locales and clever puzzles, but Fasman comes across as a novelist genuinely interested in unraveling the convention of the thriller, and he gives his tale a delightfully and successfully postmodern flavor. And rather than presenting obscure knowledge as valuable only because it gets you things, he is far more interested in showing how physical things lead to knowledge. Biography Jon Fasman has worked as a journalist in Washington, New York, and Moscow. His writing has appeared in the Times Literary Supplement, Slate, and the Washington Post. He is now a writer and editor for the Economist's Web site. . Trade Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., Penguin Group USA, 2006

The literary history suspense novel has long been a genre appreciated by a small subset of general readers. It is currently enjoying a new vogue and a wider readership with the publication of such novels as The Da Vinci Code, The Rule of Four, and Codex. What these books have in common, and what The Geographer's Library can also claim, is a set of characters in the here and now grappling with questions about things that went on a very long time ago. Another characteristic is the unearthing or explanation of objects of great value. The trick is to weave these two realities together in a compelling way, one that will keep the reader involved in both stories. Jon Fasman has taken a big chance with The Geographer's Library, his debut novel, setting out a complicated scenario in which a collection of priceless objects is stolen from the titular library and, eventually, scattered and re-collected a thousand years later--with very bad results for the final collector. The geographer is a real person, Al-Idrisi, a Spanish-Muslim philosopher, cartographer, linguist, and scholar who served in the court of King Roger of Sicily in Palermo in the year 1154. For the most part, Fasman's risk pays off, although there is a lot of meandering before we finally get to the final revelation. The "wraparound" story is about a young journalist, Paul Tomm, who sets out to write a simple obituary about a professor who died in his office at Paul's Alma Mate action and adventure,contemporary,education and reference,genre fiction,historical,literature and fiction,mystery,mystery thriller and suspense,spy stories and tales of intrigue,thrillers Spy Stories & Tales of Intrigue, Penguin Books
