Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself TURNAROUND PUBLISHER SERVICES

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING JASON SEGAL AND JESSE EISENBERG - FEATURING AUTHOR, DAVID LIPSKY AS A MAIN CHARACTER§An indelible portrait of David Foster Wallace, by turns funny and inspiring, based on a five-day trip with award-winning writer David Lipsky during Wallace's Infinite Jest tour §In David Lipsky's view, David Foster Wallace was the best young writer in America. Wallace's pieces for Harper's magazine in the '90s were, according to Lipsky, "like hearing for the first time the brain voice of everybody I knew: Here was how we all talked, experienced, thought. It was like smelling the damp in the air, seeing the first flash from a storm a mile away. You knew something gigantic was coming."§Then Rolling Stone sent Lipsky to join Wallace on the last leg of his book tour for Infinite Jest , the novel that made him internationally famous. They lose to each other at chess. They get iced-in at an airport. They dash to Chicago to catch a make-up flight. They endure a terrible reader's escort in Minneapolis. Wallace does a reading, a signing, an NPR appearance. Wallace gives in and imbibes titanic amounts of hotel television (what he calls an "orgy of spectation"). They fly back to Illinois, drive home, walk Wallace's dogs. Amid these everyday events, Wallace tells Lipsky remarkable things - everything he can about his life, how he feels, what he thinks, what terrifies and fascinates and confounds him - in the writing voice Lipsky had come to love. Lipsky took notes, stopped envying him, and came to feel about him - that grateful, awake feeling - the same way he felt about Infinite Jest . Then Lipsky heads to the airport, and Wallace goes to a dance at a Baptist church.§A biography in five days, Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself is David Foster Wallace as few experienced this great American writer. Told in his own words, here is Wallace's own story, and his astonishing, humane, alert way of looking at the world; here are stories of being a young writer - of being young generally - trying to knit together your ideas of who you should be and who other people expect you to be, and of being young in March of 1996. And of what it was like to be with and - as he tells it - what it was like to become David Foster Wallace.§"If you can think of times in your life that you've treated people with extraordinary decency and love, and pure uninterested concern, just because they were valuable as human beings. The ability to do that with ourselves. To treat ourselves the way we would treat a really good, precious friend. Or a tiny child of ours that we absolutely loved more than life itself. And I think it's probably possible to achieve that. I think part of the job we're here for is to learn how to do it. I know that sounds a little pious."§- David Foster Wallace§

Excerpt from Thomas Opera Mignon: With Italian and English Words and the Music of All the Principal Airs Mignon, the daughter of noble parents has, when a child, been stolen from her ancestral home, by gipsies. Her mother, shortly after this bereavement, dies of grief; while Lotario, the brokenhearted father, almost deprived of reason by the loss of his daughter, forsakes his home, and roams as a minstrel, from place to place, in search of his darling child. For years, Mignon, utterly unconscious of her birth and origin, leads a wandering life with the gipsy tribe, of which her beauty renders her the most prominent ornament. The chief, Giarno, who combines the avocation of mountebank with that of gipsy, compels the hapless girl to dance, and go through various other performances, in order to obtain money from the inhabitants of the towns through which they pass - and harshly threatens her with his stick, whenever, from fatigue, she refuses to do his bidding. Guglielmo, a young student on his travels, happens on one of these occasions to be a spectator of Giarno's ferocity; and in order to prevent the recurrence of such ill-treatment, he purchases Mignon from her cruel master. The friendless Mignon, deeply touched by Guglielmo's kindness, gradually conceives for him an ardent and irrepressible attachment. Guglielmo, however, totally unconscious of the affection which his young protegee has conceived for him, falls a prey to the fascinations of Filina, a young actress belonging to a troupe of Thespians, on their way to perform at a neighboring castle, where a grand fete is about to take place, in honor of the arrival of some illustrious prince. Foremost among the guests invited to assist at the festivities, is Guglielmo. Filina, the beautiful but coquettish object of his admiration, is the idol of the hour, and her success in the "private theatricals" at the castle, serves but to increase Guglielmo's fondness for the fascinating comedienne. Mignon, who has accompanied her new master to the castle, watches with silent grief the progress of Guglielmo's love for her rival. At length, despondent and unhappy, and unable longer to endure the maddening jealousy which gnaws her heart's core, Mignon is about to throw herself into a lake adjoining the castle, when, of a sudden, a harp, played by an unseen hand, is heard, and in another moment Lotario appears. Abandoning her impious resolve, Mignon, little dreaming that it is her father who stands before her, flies to the aged minstrel and implores his counsel and protection. Carried away by the vehemence of her emotion, she prays that vengeance may overtake the abode in which her hated rival is, at this very moment, in all the glory of her triumph. The performance inside the castle now terminates. Filina appears, surrounded by a tumultuous crowd of admirers, all loud in their praises of the actress's beauty and talents. Mirth and pleasure reign supreme, when, of a sudden, a lurid glare illumines the scene... the castle is in flames! The aged Lotario, whom the voice of nature has unconsciously interested in Mignon's behalf, has, half crazed as he is with grief and trouble, lent an ear to Mignon's rash imprecation, and has set fire to the castle. A scene of terrible confusion ensues. Mignon is nowhere to be found. Guglielmo, after an eager but fruitless search for her, rushes wildly amid the burning rafters, and, in a few moments, reappears, bearing the helpless girl in his arms. In a room in Lotario's manorial residence, on the banks of an Italian lake, lies Mignon overtaken by a dangerous illness, resulting from the fearful peril she has so lately and so narrowly escaped, as well as from the continued struggle to conceal the affection so long pent up in her breast. Guglielmo, who has meanwhile assisted Lotario in transporting Mignon to the home from which the unhappy parent had

Sarah had lived in fear for over a decade. Humiliated, ostracised and brainwashed, her spirit had been crushed. But as the realisation of what she was subjecting her children to began to sink in, she found new strength and determination - the strength to try to escape the world that had consumed her for so long. Sarah was never a troublesome child. She smoked and drank a bit when she was underage, and shoplifted once, but she was generally well-behaved and didn't mean to upset her mum and dad. But Sarah's parents had seen first hand what could happen when a teenager went off the rails. Scared the same would happen to Sarah, they sent her away, many miles from home, to a church school that would put a stop to her bad behaviour. They had no idea they were sending Sarah to a place where she would be forced into obedience - a place that sanctioned force-feeding and beating in order to smash a child's will. They had no idea she would end up marrying a boy from the cult, and cutting the rest of her family out of her life. Or that she would begin to treat her own children in the same way - believing there was no other option, and that everyone in the outside world was evil. But she did. And the day they sent Sarah away to the little church school miles from home was the last time they saw their real daughter for over a decade. Until one day when Sarah found the courage to fight back, the strength to protect her children and bravely venture into the world she believed was full of evil. This is Sarah's story - the shocking but ultimately inspiring true story of her struggle to save her children from the suffering she was forced to endure.

Pindar Diamond Bloomsbury

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In a small town on the Italian coast, a mysterious woman washes ashore. She is crippled, mute, and clutches a bundle to her chest - a baby the townspeople insist is a real-life mermaid. It can only bring bad luck; they pay a troupe of acrobats to carry mother and child away. In the bustling trade center of Venice, merchant Paul Pindar is the subject of his colleagues' concern. Since his return from Constantinople, they have found him changed; raging over the loss of his beloved, Celia, he has gambled away his fortune at the gaming tables. But when a priceless blue diamond surfaces in the city, Pindar recognizes the opportunity to regain everything he has lost - including, perhaps, the woman he loves. A celebrated writer of history and travel books, Katie Hickman has always been a master of evoking time and place. With The Pindar Diamond, her follow-up to The Aviary Gate, she brings early-seventeenth-century Italy vividly to life, and also demonstrates her maturity as a novelist. A tale of love and avarice, with a touch of the mystical, The Pindar Diamond is rich with historical detail, and unfolds with urgency and grace. It is accomplished, wholly satisfying historical fiction.

Over Our Heads Penguin Books Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Over Our Heads: the brilliant debut by Andrew Fox. A young man rushes to the bedside of his ex, knowing the baby she's having is not his own. Travelling colleagues experience an eerie moment of truth when a fire starts in their hotel. A misdirected parcel sets off a complex psychodrama involving two men, a woman and a dog ... Andrew Fox's clever, witty, intense and thoroughly entertaining stories capture the passions and befuddlements of the young and rootless, equally dislocated at home and abroad. Set in America and Ireland - and, at times, in jets over the Atlantic - Over Our Heads showcases a brilliant new talent. 'Over Our Heads is full of surprises, all of them great' Roddy Doyle, winner of the Booker Prize 'Deft, clever, intense - this is a terrific debut from a very gifted new writer' Kevin Barry, winner of the IMPAC prize 'Andrew Fox's stories are slivers of power; knowing, watchful and burning with intelligence. Lives half-lived or grasped at; loves longed for and destroyed; the journey of the modern emigrant who goes away in the same daze in which he comes home: these are stories which linger long after they have been read' Belinda McKeon 'Fox is skilful at probing the bigger emotions: alienation, loss and nostalgia. His sparse prose is an effective counterpoint to complex feelings. His stories deal with the moments that shape a life: first trysts, the illness of a parent, the graduation of a child. ... Fox knows the hallmark of a good short story: leave the reader wanting more' Financial Times 'An impressive and thoroughly enjoyable collection ... Fox lets his characters tramp around their worlds, searching for heaven on earth' Irish Times 'Achieves the effect of intimating deep fissures of pain and longing beneath the lightest of surface cracks. Fox's prose is poised and confident, a well-honed tool with which to treat his delicate subject matter' Sunday Times 'The best of these stories are very good indeed ... While there are few happy souls in these arresting stories, the reader can find consolation in Fox's supple prose and frequently subtle insights' Irish Independent 'Fox joins a band of new talented Irish short story writers, like Colin Barrett and Mary Costello, with this assured debut collection' RTE Guide (four stars) 'These are thoughtful, well-told stories that bring home how hard it can be to belong' Herald 'A remarkable new talent ... He is able to tread so lightly that we only realise we have been cleverly punched in the solar plexus after we finish the last line' Irish Mail on Sunday (five stars)

This comparative study explores purpose and identity in the revision of wartime childhoods by German, Jewish and British writers addressing a child or adolescent audience. Autobiographical accounts published between 1970 and 1995 form part of a general reassessment of the past which was taking place at personal and national levels. For many authors the legacy of the war years presents narrative dilemmas. How, for example, does a German writer record the heady excitement of Hitler Youth rallies and marches in a manner which fulfils the didactic purpose expected of any book for children set in the Third Reich? Is the therapeutic purpose so evident in the work of exiled Jewish writers echoed in all accounts of childhood wartime evacuation, and is a sense of nostalgia exclusive to British texts? In passing their own stories on to the next generation, each writer's selection of content and control of narrative perspective reveal the roles of personal need and changing ideologies in recreating that

One day David Small awoke from a supposedly harmless operation to discover that he had been transformed into a virtual mute. A vocal cord removed, his throat slashed and stitched together like a bloody boot, the fourteen-year-old boy had not been told that he had cancer and was expected to die. In Stitches, Small, the award-winning children s illustrator and author, re-creates this terrifying event in a life story that might have been imagined by Kafka. As the images painfully tumble out, one by one, we gain a ringside seat at a gothic family drama where David a highly anxious yet supremely talented child all too often became the unwitting object of his parents buried frustration and rage. Believing that they were trying to do their best, David s parents did just the reverse. Edward Small, a Detroit physician, who vented his own anger by hitting a punching bag, was convinced that he could cure his young son s respiratory problems with heavy doses of radiation, possibly causing David s cancer. Elizabeth, David s mother, tyrannically stingy and excessively scolding, ran the Small household under a cone of silence where emotions, especially her own, were hidden. Depicting this coming-of-age story with dazzling, kaleidoscopic images that turn nightmare into fairy tale, Small tells us of his journey from sickly child to cancer patient, to the troubled teen whose risky decision to run away from home at sixteen with nothing more than the dream of becoming an artist will resonate as the ultimate survival statement. A silent movie masquerading as a book, Stitches renders a broken world suddenly seamless and beautiful again. Finalist for the 2009 National Book Award (Young Adult); finalist for two 2010 Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards (Best Writer/Artist: Nonfiction; Best Reality-Based Work)."

'It seemed as if the town of Carn, a huddled clump of windswept grey buildings split in two by a muddied main street, had somehow been spirited away and supplanted by a thriving, bustling place which bore no resemblance whatever to it. For a split second, she saw her own death, a gunmetal face fixed on the sky, all around the faces and voices of Carn as she had known it. Josie Keenan had come home to the town of Carn, the only home she knew' 'A unique record by somebody who understands that the reality of small-town life is as important in literature as any aspect of Ireland ...a savage, raw and bitter honesty ...I know no Irish writer with such an obvious, extraordinary talent' Dermot Bolger, Sunday Independent 'Powerful, precise writing - Patrick McCabe's Carn introduces one of the most promising writers in a long, long time' Bill Buford, Granta 'Resolute ...the writing is raw and didactic. His story bears the hideous ring of authenticity' Guardian 'Stylishly narrated, but with the chronological forthrightness that comes as a benison after some modern novels' London Review of Books

John Peel first brought Judy's moving childhood story to light on 'Home Truths'. Abducted by her psychotic spiritualist father and kept like a dog in the backyard, she went on to suffer at the brutal hands of nuns in a Manchester orphanage, before living wild on the streets. An incredible, heart-wrenching story of a child who refused to give up. After a childhood lived in terror, in 1994 Judy was presented with an Unsung Heroes Award for her charity work with street children in South Africa. Her moving story came to light after Judy was interviewed by John Peel on BBC's 'Home Truths'. 'Street Kid' is the inspirational and heartwrenching story of her early years. At age two, in postwar Manchester, Judy was snatched from her mother and sisters by her psychotic father - a spiritualist preacher. He kept her in his backyard, leaving her to scavenge from bins to beat off starvation. At four, she was sent to an inhumanely strict catholic orphanage, before being put back in her father's cruel care. For the next three years she was treated as a virtual slave. After being taken by her father to South Africa, Judy ran away to join the circus where she found her first taste of freedom and friendship - before her father tracked her down. Weeks later Judy was alone again and living on the streets, too terrified to turn to her circus friends. For 9 months 12-year-old Judy made her home in a shed behind a bottle store before collapsing in a shop doorway from near-starvation. Finally, aged 17, Judy managed to pay her way back to England to find her mother and sisters. But her return to Manchester cruelly shattered any dreams of a happy reunion. Determined that her childhood experiences should in some way give meaning to her life, Judy has worked tirelessly to help children in need back in South Africa in the very place she had been treated to such abuse herself. She has opened 7 centres to date.

The beautiful Lady Eleta Renton returns from France where she has stayed long over her time at the Convent School in Paris. Because her mother had married again after becoming widowed and then she died too, Eleta was in no hurry to come home. When she arrives back in London, rather sad at leaving the Convent School, she is horrified when her stepfather, whom she had never liked, tells her that she is to marry the Duke of Hazelware, because he is important to him in his business of shipbuilding and the Duke requires a wife with money. As she had never even seen the Duke, Eleta protested violently, especially when she learns her intended husband is over fifty, but her stepfather informs her that he is her Guardian by law until she is twenty-one and that will not be until the end of the year. As she is terrified at being forced into this marriage, she decides that the only course open to her is to run away . She learns from her mother's maid, Betty, of whom she is very fond, that there is an Agency nearby where she might be able to find a position as a secretary or a Governess. At the Agency the only place available is with the Marquis of Teringford, who has a very tiresome, badly behaved child of nine years of age, with whom no Governess will stay and has apparently run through a large number of them. One of them actually said when she left that she was a child of the Devil. Because she is desperate and despite Betty's misgivings at the Marquis's apparently doubtful reputation, Eleta takes the position and goes to his magnificent house in Hertfordshire. Here she finds that the small child has never been loved, which is the reason why she is so difficult. Also the Marquis is seldom there and, when he is, he scolds and lectures his daughter to distraction. How Eleta eventually tames and finds love for her pupil and for herself is all told in this romantic and moving tale by BARBARA CARTLAND.
