As Queen Victoria's reign reaches its end, Grace Farringdon dreams of polar explorations and of escape from her stifling home with her protective parents and eccentric, agoraphobic sister. But when Grace secretly applies to Candlin, a women's college filled with intelligent, like-minded women, she finally feels her ambitions beginning to be take shape. There she forms an Antarctic Exploration Society with the gregarious suffragette Locke, the reserved and studious Hooper and the strange, enigmatic Parr, and before long the group are defying their times and their families by climbing the peaks of Snowdonia and planning an ambitious trip to the perilous Alps. Fifteen years later, trapped in her Dulwich home, Grace is haunted by the terrible events that took place out on the mountains. She is the society's only survivor and for years people have demanded the truth of what happened, the group's horrible legacy a millstone around her neck. Now, as the eve of the Second World War approaches, Grace is finally ready to remember and to confess ...From one of the finest writers of the psychological thriller comes this beautifully woven, deeply unsettling historical novel; powerfully atmospheric, shivering with menace and reminiscent of the very best of Sarah Waters.

Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights Jonathan Cape Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is from one of the greatest writers of our time: the most spellbinding, entertaining, wildly imaginative novel of his great career, which blends history and myth with tremendous philosophical depth. It is a masterful, mesmerising modern tale about worlds dangerously colliding, the monsters that are unleashed when reason recedes, and a beautiful testament to the power of love and humanity in chaotic times. Inspired by 2,000 years of storytelling yet rooted in the concerns of our present moment, this is a spectacular achievement - enchanting, both very funny and terrifying. It is narrated by our descendants 1000 years hence, looking back on 'The War of the Worlds' that began with 'the time of the strangenesses': a simple gardener begins to levitate; a baby is born with the unnerving ability to detect corruption in people; the ghosts of two long-dead philosophers begin arguing once more, and storms pummel New York so hard that a crack appears in the universe, letting in the destructive djinns of myth (as well as some graphic superheroes). Nothing less than the survival of our world is at stake. Only one, a djinn princess who centuries before had learnt to love humankind, resolves to help us: in the face of dynastic intrigue, she raises an army composed of her semi-magical great-great-etcetera-grandchildren - a small motley crew of endearing characters who come together to save the world in a battle waged for 1,001 nights - or, to be precise, 2 years, 8 months and 28 nights.

Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

Astragal PROFILE BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

'My Albertine, how I adored her! Her luminous eyes led me through the darkness of my youth. She was my guide through the nights of one hundred sleeps. And now she is yours.' At the age of twenty-one, a sad and hungry Patti Smith walked into a bookshop in Greenwich Village and decided to spend her last 99 cents on a novel that would change her life forever. The book was Astragal, by Albertine Sarrazin. Sarrazin was an enigmatic outsider who had spent time in jail and who wrote only two novels and a book of poems in her short life - she died the year before Patti found her book, at the age of twenty-nine. Astragal tells the story of Anne, a young woman who breaks her ankle in a daring escape from prison. She makes it to a highway where she's picked up by a motorcyclist, Julien, who's also on the run. As they travel through nights and days together, they fall in love and must do whatever they can to survive, living their lives always on the edge of danger. A bewitching and timeless novel of youthful rebellion and romance, this new edition of Patsy Southgate's original translation includes an introduction by Patti Smith.

Meet Konstantin Boryakov, the enigmatic ex-KGB agent and tramp from the best-selling debut novel, The Fix. He's a man with a dark history and darker future. Trouble has a habit of seeking out Konstantin, whether he wants it or not. Starting with small time drug dealer Dave the Rave from the moment he arrives in the seedy seaside town of Margate where he's supposed to hide, to Nikos the loan shark and Fat Gary, all round idiot. Then there's the so-called good guys, the councilors and lawyers who are worse than the criminals. But Konstantin isn't alone, despite his wishes. Fidelity Brown, aka Plastic Fantastic, dildo wielding dominatrix who has her own melange of secrets and lies, and nightclub owner Ken who's connected to all the wrong people, help the Russian with the heap of problems delivered to his doorstep. Cue deception, murder, mayhem as Konstantin settles into his new life. Margate will never be the same again. 'Lean, mean and gritty, with writing as sharp as a razor cut. Keith Nixon serves up a 'Konstantin Kocktail', with equal parts Vodka to Vodka, that'll hit you just where it's needed.' Matt Hilton - Author of the Joe Hunter thrillers. 'Keith Nixon gets better with each new book. Among a promising crop of new writers he's the one to watch. A rare and diverse talent who has the ability to surprise and impress ... sometimes in the same sentence.' Tony Black, author of The Last Tiger and The Inglorious Dead. 'Nixon writes hard-hitting fiction, with a dash of humour, a cast of great characters, and a dollop of violence. Konstantin is a fantastic creation and this collection of novellas is hopefully a taste of bigger things to come.' Luca Veste, author of Dead Gone and The Dying Place 'If you told me that Konstantin put the K in KGB, I wouldn't even argue. This character is a badass of the highest calibre.' Gerard Brennan, author of Undercover. 'Russian Roulette, Keith Nixon's fast-paced collection of seven novellas, feels cinematic, like Snatch meets a steampunk Sherlock Holmes: deliciously foreign and saturated in the other, offering American audiences a first class seat to see how noir is done across the pond. Navigating an exotic subculture of ecstasy-dealing English toughs, dominatrixes, crime lords, loan sharks and all sorts of lowlifes, Nixon continues the story of Russian-born Konstanin, anti-hero for the modern age. Like Marlowe before him, Konstantin has a penchant for finding trouble-and an unflinching sense of morality to get him out of it.' Joe Clifford, author of Lamentation and Junkie Love. 'Nixon delivers a series of hard-edged twists and turns that will leave you reeling and turning the pages in what is an unforgettable story.' Richard Godwin, author of Hitman and One Lost Summer. 'Hardboiled action and sharp, gritty humour. Highly recommended.' Paul D. Brazill, author of Guns Of Brixton and A Case Of Noir. 'Flat, monotoned, dreary landscapes against which two of the most original characters ever seen in literature-Konstantin and Fidelity-operate together and separately in linked stories in a series of nourish nightmares that will have you screaming inside your skull. This is what noir is all about. Masterful, deadly and powerful.' Les Edgerton, author of The Rapist, The Bitch and The Genuine, Imitation, Plastic Kidnapping. 'If you thought "The Fix" was a blast of black comedy, you ain't seen nothing yet. In this collection of fast-moving novellas, reacquaint yourself with Konstantin Boryakov, a tramp claiming to be ex-KGB. The people who cross him may be sorry, but you won't be.' Nick Quantrill, author of The Late Greats."

Winner of the Malice Domestic Competition for Best First Traditional Mystery Novel, this is a delightful Southern cosy from an award-winning author. Beth McKenzie's attempt to turn an old Southern mansion into a Bed and Breakfast called The Dixie Dew is thwarted when her first guest is found dead in bed. Murdered, it turns out. Three days later a young priest who looks better in tennis whites than cleric black, is found strangled in his chapel. The whole town of Littleboro is abuzz, and Ossie Delbardo, the town cop whose job heretofore mainly involved controlling football traffic on Friday nights, is not cut out to solve the murders. With her barely opened B&B in danger of failing, and aided by her friend from high school and trusty handyman, Beth sets out to discover the truth of the murders. Littleboro has its share of characters, some of which are helpful and others misleading. There's Crazy Reba who lives in a tree, bathes in any bathtub she finds empty, and dumpster dives; Verna, the town know-it-all and affectionate owner of Robert Redford, a huge white rabbit; and Miss Tempie Merritt, music teacher and organist who always wears hat, gloves, and lace-trimmed white socks. When Beth herself is attacked, there's no more time for baking muffins and stencilling pineapples on the porch.

Blood and Oil in the Orient BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

An Autobiography like Something Out of the Arabian Nights In this lively and witty autobiography, Essad Bey, a.k.a. Lev Nussimbaum, tells us the story of his childhood in Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, and of his flight from the Russian Revolution in 1917, which brought him first straight through the Caucasus, then to Istanbul - where this book concludes - and finally to Berlin. When Essad Bey speaks of the people of the Caucasus and their customs so strange to us, a sort of anthropological cabinet of curiosities unfolds before our eyes, and we cannot help but be astonished. All the while, through his affectionate and sometimes openly ironic words, even the excesses of the Revolution sound like children's pranks and his hair-raising escape like an adventure novel. Blood and Oil in the Orient is an informative and entertaining book; in the 1930s, it was a bestseller in the U.S. and Germany.

Thirty years after the resounding success of Jay McInerney's Bright Lights, Big City, and written in a similarly intense second-person narrative, Layla speaks for a new generation.
