Love in a Fallen City New York Review of Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A New York Review Books Original" ""ÝÄ giant of modern Chinese literature" "-The New York Times" "With language as sharp as a knife edge, Eileen Chang cut open a huge divide in Chinese culture, between the classical patriarchy and our troubled modernity. She was one of the very few able truly to connect that divide, just as her heroines often disappeared inside it. She is the fallen angel of Chinese literature, and now, with these excellent new translations, English readers can discover why she is so revered by Chinese readers everywhere." "-"Ang Lee Eileen Chang was born in China and died in Los Angeles, living most of her life as an obscure, impoverished, and reclusive exile. She ran away from a troubled family to lead the bohemian life of a writer, and in the late Thirties and Forties her stories about Shanghai and Hong Kong transformed Chinese literature. Chang said her goal was to describe "the little things that happen between men and women," and she did this in a way that was at once subtle, up-to-date, psychologically fraught, unsentimental, and full of richly suggestive imagery. She is now recognized as one of China's great writers not only by a few critics and academics, but by a vast and passionate public. Love in a Fallen City is the first English-language publication to present a full selection of this haunting writer's novellas, the heart of her achievement. These are stories of seduction and betrayal, hypocrisy, cruelty, and frustration: a girl falls for a cad who she knows does not love her; a young man is driven to an act of terrible and yet futile violence by his father's abuse and his own dark desires; a woman draws on the ever-diminishing credit ofher good reputation in an attempt to snare an indifferent man; a couple's accidental meeting in a besieged city leads to the discovery that true love is a matter of expediency, not passion. "The Story of the Golden Cangue," here in Eileen Chang's own celebrated translation,

David Foster Wallace is to contemporary literature what Kurt Cobain is to music. He died young enough for his promise and his achievements to solidify into a legend. For many, he became someone worth reading, revering, following.How had a teen tennis prodigy turned ace philosophy student turned novelist managed to become a generation-defining star? And how painful was that process for him? What was it that he stood for that chimed with so many? And how much did his, and his country's, addictions defeat him? D. T. Max was determined to find out, and this scrupulous and revealing biographical study, which draws on conversations with those closest to Wallace and on extensive archive material, is the haunting result.

Love Letters to the Dead Hot Key Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

It begins as an assignment for English class: write a letter to a dead person - any dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain - he died young, and so did Laurel's sister May - so maybe he'll understand a bit of what Laurel is going through. Soon Laurel is writing letters to lots of dead people - Janis Joplin, Heath Ledger, River Phoenix, Amelia Earhart's like she can't stop. And she'd certainly never dream of handing them in to her teacher. She writes about what it's like going to a new high school, meeting new friends, falling in love for the first time - and how her family has shattered since May died. But much as Laurel might find writing the letters cathartic, she can't keep real life out forever. The ghosts of her past won't be contained between the lines of a page, and she will have to come to terms with growing up, the agony of losing a beloved sister, and the realisation that only you can shape your destiny. A lyrical, haunting and stunning debut from the protege of Stephen Chbosky (The Perks Of Being A Wallflower).

Love Stories EVERYMAN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"Love Stories" brings together a captivating assortment of short stories inspired by romantic entanglement in its many forms: first love, infatuation, obsession, unrequited love, marriage, adultery, jealousy, and the complicated bonds of those who have spent their lives together. An array of writers evoke a variety of moods, from the raw, erotic passion of Lawrence and Colette to the wickedlycynical comedy of Dorothy Parker and Roald Dahl; from the agonizing madness of jealousy in Nabokov's "That in Aleppo Once ..." to romantic illusions in Scott Fitzgerald's "Winter Dreams".Objects of passion range from a glamorous silent-movie star in Elizabeth Bowen's haunting "Dead Mabelle" to a faithful ghost in Kawabata's "Immortality" and a successful heart surgeon and serial husband in Margaret Atwood's "Bluebeard's Egg". Jhumpa Lahiri plumbs the depths of a couple sundered by tragedy while Lorrie Moore movingly portrays a husband and wife brought together by it. Katherine Mansfield, Tobias Wolff and William Trevor explore the intricacies of long-term relationships, while Maupassant, Calvino and T. C. Boyle convey the elemental force of love in extremely different ways. Together these nineteen stories make an enticing gift for lovers at any stage of life. It is perfect for Valentine's Day.

Monster Love Penguin

Shortlisted for the Orange Prize for Fiction, "Monster Love" by Carol Topolski is a dark and deathly literary thriller. "I've kicked myself that I didn't do anything about it then. I've often thought, what if I had? Would she be alive now?" (Charlotte, neighbour). "I wonder at how gullible I was ...because when I asked them if I could see Samantha, just for the record, she said she was playing at the rec with her friends and I just went Oh, OK". (Kaye, social worker). "You see it all the time in videos and that, but until you're in the room with them you don't really know what it means". (Sharon, juror). No one in the neighbourhood has seen the Gutteridges' little girl Samantha for months. But Brendan and Sherilyn look happier that ever, so nothing is wrong. Is it? For the Gutteridges, Samantha was just a thing that threatened to worm its way into their perfect love. For everyone else, her story is the stuff of tabloid headlines. But this time it's not in a newspaper, it's happening right next door..."Haunting ...will have you hooked from the very beginning. If you liked "We Need to Talk About Kevin" you'll love this". ("Harper's Bazaar"). "A chilling love story with a twist as compelling as it is disturbing". ("Elle"). Carol Topolski is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. Her many previous roles include working on the Woodstock festival, in advertising, and as a prison teacher, nursery-school director, director of a rape crisis centre and refuge for battered women, probation officer and film censor. She lives in London and is married with two daughters and two grandchildren. "Monster Love" was shortlisted for the 2008 Orange Prize for Fiction. Her second novel, "Do No Harm", is available in Penguin.

Love-charm of Bombs Bloomsbury

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

When the first bombs fell on London in August 1940, the city was transformed overnight into a battlefront. For most Londoners, the sirens, guns, planes and bombs heralded gruelling nights of sleeplessness, fear and loss. But for Graham Greene and some of his contemporaries, this was a bizarrely euphoric time when London became the setting for intense love affairs and surreal beauty. At the height of the Blitz, Greene described the bomb-bursts as holding one 'like a love-charm'. As the sky whistled and the ground shook, nerves were tested, loyalties examined and infidelities begun. The Love-charm of Bombs is a powerful wartime chronicle told through the eyes of five prominent writers: Elizabeth Bowen, Graham Greene, Rose Macaulay, Hilde Spiel and Henry Yorke (writing as Henry Green). Volunteering as ambulance drivers, fire-fighters and ARP wardens, these were the successors to the soldier poets of the First World War and their story has never been told. Now, opening with a meticulous evocation of a single night in September 1940, Lara Feigel brilliantly and beautifully interweaves letters, diaries and fiction with official civil defence records to chart the history of a burning world in wartime London and post-war Vienna and Berlin. She reveals the haunting, ecstatic, often wrenching stories that triumphed amid the mess of a war-torn world.
