Nicholas Nickleby Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

One of the touchstones of the English comic novel, the "Penguin Classics" edition of Charles Dickens' "Nicholas Nickleby" is edited with an introduction by Mark Ford. When Nicholas Nickleby is left penniless after his father's death, he appeals to his wealthy uncle to help him find work and to protect his mother and sister. But Ralph Nickleby proves both hard-hearted and unscrupulous, and Nicholas finds himself forced to make his own way in the world. His adventures gave Dickens the opportunity to portray an extraordinary gallery of rogues and eccentrics: Wackford Squeers, the tyrannical headmaster of Dotheboys Hall, a school for unwanted boys, the slow-witted orphan Smike, rescued by Nicholas, the pretentious Mantalinis and the gloriously theatrical Mr and Mrs Crummels and their daughter, the 'infant phenomenon'. Like many of Dickens' novels, "Nicholas Nickleby" is characterised by his outrage at cruelty and social injustice, but it is also a flamboyantly exuberant work, whose loose, haphazard progress harks back to the picaresque novels of Tobias Smollett and Henry Fielding. In his introduction Mark Ford compares "Nicholas Nickleby" to eighteenth-century picaresque novels, and examines Dickens' criticism of the 'Yorkshire schools', his social satire and use of language. This edition includes the original illustrations by 'Phiz', Dickens' original preface to the work, a chronology and a list of further reading. Charles Dickens is one of the best-loved novelists in the English language, whose 200th anniversary was celebrated in 2012. His most famous books, including "Oliver Twist", "Great Expectations", "A Tale of Two Cities", "David Copperfield" and "The Pickwick Papers", have been adapted for stage and screen and read by millions. If you enjoyed "Nicholas Nickleby", you might like Dickens' "David Copperfield", also available in "Penguin Classics". "The novel has everything: an absorbing melodrama, with a supporting cast of heroes, villains and eccentrics, set in a London where vast wealth and desperate poverty live cheek-by-jowl." (Jasper Rees, "The Times").

Woman Entangled HEADLINE

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

An ambitious beauty seeking a spot among the elite is thwarted by a most disruptive gentleman in Cecilia Grant's witty, elegant, and exquisitely sensual novel. Kate Westbrook has dreams far bigger than romance. Love won't get her into London's most consequential parties, nor prevent her sisters from being snubbed and looked down upon - all because their besotted father unadvisedly married an actress. But a noble husband for Kate would deliver a future most suited to the granddaughter of an earl. Armed with ingenuity, breathtaking beauty, and the help of an idle aunt with connections, Kate is poised to make her dreams come true. Unfortunately, a familiar face - albeit a maddeningly handsome one - appears bent on upsetting her scheme. Implored by Kate's worried father to fend off the rogues eager to exploit his daughter's charms, Nick Blackshear has set aside the torch he's carried for Kate in order to do right by his friend. Anyway, she made quite clear that his feelings were not returned - though policing her won't abate Nick's desire. Reckless passion leads to love's awakening, but time is running out. Kate must see for herself that the charms of high society are nothing compared to the infinite sweet pleasures demanded by the heart.

Tuf Voyaging GOLLANCZ

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Haviland Tuf is an honest space-trader (one of the few), and he likes cats. So how is it that, despite being up against the worst villains in the universe, he has become the proud owner of the last working seedship, pride of Earth's Ecological Engineering Corps? We'll leave that aside for now - just be thankful that the most powerful weapon in space is in good hands, hands which now control cellular material for thousands of outlandish creatures. With his unique equipment and powerful spacecraft, Tuf is set to tackle the myriad problems that human settlers have created during their colonisation of far flung worlds. Hosts of hostile monsters, a population addicted to procreation, a dictator who is willing to unleash plagues to get his own way - and all that stands between the colonists and disaster is Tuf's ingenuity, and his reputation as an honest dealer in a universe of rogues...

How to Survive Your Mother POCKET BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

What does it feel like to find out things about your mother that you weren't supposed to know? In 2004, a chance encounter set investigative reporter Jonathan Maitland on the trail of a shocking scandal involving his own parents. Having spent his TV career hunting down rogues and conmen on behalf of the British public, it never occurred to him that the story of his own mother could be the most gripping - and disturbing - of them all. As he attempts to uncover the truth about what happened back in the 1960s, Maitland peels back the layers of his extraordinary childhood to reveal the astonishing history of his larger-than-life mother: her tempestuous marriages, her love affairs, her public suicide attempts and her outrageous money-making schemes. Entertaining, humorous, disturbing and revelatory, this movingly honest memoir will appeal to anyone who has ever had issues with their parents.
