The best-selling author of Born to Run now travels to the Mediterranean, where he discovers that the secrets of ancient Greek heroes are still alive and well on the island of Crete, and ready to be unleashed in the muscles and minds of casual athletes and aspiring heroes everywhere. After running an ultramarathon through the Copper Canyons of Mexico, Christopher McDougall finds his next great adventure on the razor-sharp mountains of Crete, where a band of Resistance fighters in World War II plotted the daring abduction of a German general from the heart of the Nazi occupation. How did a penniless artist, a young shepherd, and a playboy poet believe they could carry out such a remarkable feat of strength and endurance, smuggling the general past thousands of Nazi pursuers, with little more than their own wits and courage to guide them? McDougall makes his way to the island to find the answer and retrace their steps, experiencing firsthand the extreme physical challenges the Resistance fighters and their local allies faced. On Crete, the birthplace of the classical Greek heroism that spawned the likes of Herakles and Odysseus, McDougall discovers the tools of the hero—natural movement, extraordinary endurance, and efficient nutrition. All of these skills, McDougall learns, are still practiced in far-flung pockets throughout the world today. More than a mystery of remarkable people and cunning schemes, Natural Born Heroes is a fascinating investigation into the lost art of the hero, taking us from the streets of London at midnight to the beaches of Brazil at dawn, from the mountains of Colorado to McDougall’s own backyard in Pennsylvania, all places where modern-day athletes are honing ancient skills so they’re ready for anything. Just as Born to Run inspired readers to get off the treadmill, out of their shoes, and into the natural world, Natural Born Heroes will inspire them to leave the gym and take their fitness routine to nature—to climb, swim, skip, throw, and jump their way to their own heroic feats. From the Hardcover edition.

The astonishing national bestseller and hugely entertaining story that completely changed the way we run. An epic adventure that began with one simple question: Why does my foot hurt? Isolated by Mexico's deadly Copper Canyons, the blissful Tarahumara Indians have honed the ability to run hundreds of miles without rest or injury. In a riveting narrative, award-winning journalist and often-injured runner Christopher McDougall sets out to discover their secrets. In the process, he takes his readers from science labs at Harvard to the sun-baked valleys and freezing peaks across North America, where ever-growing numbers of ultra-runners are pushing their bodies to the limit, and, finally, to a climactic race in the Copper Canyons that pits America’s best ultra-runners against the tribe. McDougall’s incredible story will not only engage your mind but inspire your body when you realize that you, indeed all of us, were born to run.

Četrnaest godina nakon „Korekcija“ i pet godina nakon „Slobode“ Franzen je napisao još jedan velik roman, „najintimniji dosad, u kojem je svojem glasu dodao neke nove tonove“. The New York Times „Čistoća“, naslov novog romana Jonathana Franzena, ujedno je i značenje imena glavne junakinje (Purity) i koncept koji zadobiva mnoge oblike u romanu. Purity Pip Tyler živi kao skvoterica u Oaklandu, opterećena je studentskim kreditom, a jedina joj je obitelj majka. Odrasla gotovo u izolaciji, ne zna majčin pravi identitet ni tko joj je otac i boji se da nikad neće imati normalan život. Druženje s anarhistima iz Njemačke odvodi Pip u Južnu Ameriku gdje počinje raditi kao pripravnica u Sunčanom projektu, hakerskoj skupini sličnoj WikiLeaksu. Pip se nada da će tamo otkriti tajnu svoga podrijetla. Na čelu grupacije karizmatični je Andreas Wolf, koji je mladost proveo u Istočnoj Njemačkoj i proslavio se u vrijeme pada Berlinskoga zida. Premda mnogo stariji od nje, Wolf pokazuje naklonost prema Pip i između njih se razvija poseban i intenzivan odnos. Ova se priča grana u prošlost i sadašnjost, u sedam povezanih dijelova knjige koji su ispripovijedani kroz prizme različitih likova. Pri tom Franzen stvara svijet originalnih i nezaboravnih likova – novinari, leakeri, ljubavnici i supružnici, loši pisci, karijeristi, tragičari. Gotovo svaki lik u romanu traži “čistoću” u nekom obliku, a propitivanje istine i laži, čistog i zagađenog događa se na mnogim razinama njihove egzistencije i međusobnih odnosa. „Čistoća“ je zamršen, ali savršeno kontroliran roman o velikim temama (život u komunizmu i pad Istočnog bloka, ogoljavanje privatnosti u eri interneta, korupcijske afere u visokoj politici, toksičnost kulture opsjednute slavom). No ipak, u samom srcu romana pulsiraju puno intimniji problemi i teme: propali brakovi, slomljena prijateljstva, mučna djetinjstva, seksualne fantazije i perverzije, trenuci kad se suočavamo s vlastitim demonima, ludilom i kaosom. Svi likovi u romanu nose neku svoju tajnu, sram i krivnju, a sâm Franzen “Čistoću” je nazvao knjigom o našim modricama i povredama. Ovim romanom Franzen je još jedanput pokazao da je izuzetan pripovjedač koji proniče u bolne točke današnjice i naše egzistencije, snažno, duhovito i s profinjenom dozom ironije.

Una aventura épica que comenzó con una simple pregunta: ¿Por qué me duele el pie? Aislados por las peligrosas Barrancas de Cobre en México, los apacibles indios Tarahumara han perfeccionado durante siglos la capacidad de correr cientos de millas sin descanso ni lesiones. En este fascinante relato, el prestigioso periodista —y corredor habitualmente lesionado— Christopher McDougall sale a descubrir sus secretos. En el proceso, nos lleva de los laboratorios de Harvard a los tórridos valles y las gélidas montañas de Norte América, donde los cada vez más numerosos ultra corredores están empujando sus cuerpos al límite, y finalmente a una vibrante carrera en las Barrancas de Cobre entre los mejores ultra corredores americanos y los sencillos Tarahumara. Esta increíble historia no solo despertará tu mente; además inspirará tu cuerpo cuando te des cuenta de que, de hecho, todos hemos nacido para correr.
