The moors and valleys of Miss Bentley's Native Yorkshire and the mill town of Hudley, just a few miles away from the Ire Valley of her novel Inheritance, form the scene of this new book. A Modern Tragedy is the dramatic story of Walter Haigh, who makes his entrance as an enthusiastic, ambitious, rather innocent young fellow, starting in the textile business with his father's old employers, the Lumbs, at Valley Mill. Early in the story, Walter leaves Valley Mill and takes a position with the wily Leonard Tasker, of Victory Mills. He becomes apparently prosperous, makes his way into the more aristocratic society of the town, and falls in love with beautiful Elaine Crosland. Until the depression pulls down Tasker's business, and everything changes...

Charlotte Bronte VIKING

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

On the 200th anniversary of Charlotte Bronte's birth, Penguin is publishing the definitive biography of this extraordinary novelist, by acclaimed literary biographer Claire Harman Charlotte Bronte's life contained all the drama and tragedy of the great Gothic novels it inspired. She was raised motherless on remote Yorkshire moors and sent away to brutally strict boarding school at a young age. She watched helpless growing up as, one by one, her five beloved siblings sickened and died; by the end of her short life, she was the only child of the Bronte clan remaining. And most fascinating and tragic of all, throughout her adult life she was haunted by a great and unrequited love - a love that tortured Charlotte but also inspired some of the most moving, intense and revolutionary novels ever written in the English language. Charlotte was a literary visionary, a feminist trailblazer and the driving force behind the whole Bronte family. She encouraged her sister Emily to publish Wuthering Heights when no-one else believed in her talent. She took charge of the family's precarious finances when her brilliant but feckless brother Branwell succumbed to opium addiction. She travelled from Yorkshire to Europe to the bright lights of London, met some of the most brilliant literary minds of her generation (Elizabeth Gaskell, Charles Dickens, William Thackeray), and became a bestselling female author in a world still dominated by men. And in each of her books, from Villette and Shirley to her most famous, Jane Eyre, Charlotte created brand new kinds of heroines, inspired by herself and her life, fiercely intelligent women burning with hidden passions. This beautifully-produced, landmark biography is essential reading for every fan of the Bronte family's writing, from Jane Eyre to Wuthering Heights. It is a uniquely intimate and complex insight into one of Britains best loved writers. This is the literary biography of the year; if you loved Claire Tomalins Charles Dickens, this event is not to be missed. "An extraordinary book, crammed with scholarship and glittering with trivia...Harman's book offers so many delights...This is a fantastic compendium, the tone calm and impartial despite severe provocation." (Independent on Sunday on Jane's Fame). "A shrewd but unstuffy critic, Harman's prose rings with good sense, affection and humour...[ She] manages to be not only scholarly, but indecently entertaining." (Daily Mail on Jane's Fame). "Harman charts its course with wit and style, as well as scholarly precision." (Mark Bostridge for the Literary Review on Jane's Fame). "There is no doubt that Harman is the first to treat this fascinating subject in an accessible, lively manner unshackled by academic jargon. It's the quality of the insights and the interpretations that make this book such a good read." (Sunday Telegraph on Jane's Fame). "Rich and colourful...Harman's book is a delight from beginning to end...This superb biography not only handles the familiar material with flair but goes further than previous biographies." (Sunday Times on Robert Louis Stevenson: A Biography). "Superbly readable...she has excellent taste...a marvellous and eventful read." (Evening Standard on Robert Louis Stevenson: A Biography).

Piece of My Heart Hodder Paperback

As volunteers clean up after a huge outdoor rock concert in Yorkshire in 1969, they discover the body of a young woman wrapped in a sleeping bag. She has been brutally murdered. The detective assigned to the case, Stanley Chadwick, is a hard-headed, strait-laced veteran of the Second World War. He could not have less in common with - or less regard for - young, disrespectful, long-haired hippies, smoking marijuana and listening to the pulsing sounds of rock and roll. But he has a murder to solve, and it looks as if the victim was somehow associated with the up-and-coming psychedelic pastoral band the Mad Hatters. In the present, Inspector Alan Banks is investigating the murder of a freelance music journalist who was working on a feature about the Mad Hatters for MOJO magazine. This is not the first time that the Mad Hatters, now aging rock superstars, have been brushed by tragedy. Banks finds he has to delve into the past to find out exactly what hornets' nest the journalist inadvertently stirred up.

Jeremy Paxman - Empire VIKING

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

From the bestselling author of "The English" comes "Empire", Jeremy Paxman's history of the British Empire accompanied by a flagship 5-part BBC TV series, for readers of Simon Schama and Andrew Marr. The influence of the British Empire is everywhere, from the very existence of the United Kingdom to the ethnic composition of our cities. It affects everything, from Prime Ministers' decisions to send troops to war to the adventurers we admire. From the sports we think we're good at to the architecture of our buildings; the way we travel to the way we trade; the hopeless losers we will on, and the food we hunger for, the empire is never very far away. In this acute and witty analysis, Jeremy Paxman goes to the very heart of empire. As he describes the selection process for colonial officers ('intended to weed out the cad, the feeble and the too clever') the importance of sport, the sweating domestic life of the colonial officer's wife ('the challenge with cooking meat was "to grasp the fleeting moment between toughness and putrefaction when the joint may possibly prove eatable"') and the crazed end for General Gordon of Khartoum, Paxman brings brilliantly to life the tragedy and comedy of Empire and reveals its profound and lasting effect on our nation and ourselves. "Paxman is witty, incisive, acerbic and opinionated...In short, he carries the whole thing off with panache bordering on effrontery". (Piers Brendon, "Sunday Times"). "Paxman is a magnificent historian, and "Empire" may be remembered as his finest work". ("Independent on Sunday"). Jeremy Paxman was born in Yorkshire and educated at Cambridge. He is an award-winning journalist who spent ten years reporting from overseas, notably for "Panorama". He is the author of five books including "The English". He is the presenter of "Newsnight" and "University Challenge" and has presented BBC documentaries on various subjects including Victorian art and Wilfred Owen.
