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.

The Hoarse Oaths of Fife re-fights in novel form the Battle of Loos, 25th September, 1915,surpassed by far every previous slaughter of Scottish fighting men. The German machine guns reaped them in swathes - the Highland Light Infantry at Mad Point, the Seaforthsat Fosse 8, the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders at Cuinchy brick stacks. The flower of Scotland's infantry did reach their objective, the coal-mining village of Loos,with Piper Laidlaw standing on his parapetto urge them on. But they went too far and lost direction and ended up like all the rest,heaped in dead mounds. At the northernmost point of the British line, the Fourth Black Watch stormed across No Man's Land with the Punjabi Muslims of the Vaughan's Rifles behind them. Their share of glory was a private massacre all to themselves, a fate brought to life in tragic detail through the experience of Kenny Roberts, Great War veteran, who through his profane reverence for his native soil is destined to become a clarion voice in Scottish fiction.The Battle of Loos centenary is September 2015.No fiction has re-told the battle of Loos with anything like this power of characterisation before.It is the first fiction in English to reveal what happened to the children begotten of French and Belgian women who fraternised with the Muslim soldiers of the Indian Army on the Western Front.

Vladimír Nabokov - Lolita VIKING

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita" is one of the best-known novels of the 20th century: the controversial story of Humbert Humbert who falls in love with twelve year old Lolita, beautifully repackaged as part of the Penguin Essentials range. 'Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of my tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta.' Humbert Humbert is a middle-aged, frustrated college professor. In love with his landlady's twelve-year-old daughter Lolita, he'll do anything to possess her. Unable and unwilling to stop himself, he is prepared to commit any crime to get what he wants. Is he in love or insane? A silver-tongued poet or a pervert? A tortured soul or a monster? Or is he all of these? "A masterpiece. One of the great works of art of our age". ("Independent"). "You read Lolita sprawling limply in your chair, ravished, overcome, nodding scandalized assent". (Martin Amis, "Observer"). "Redeeming, splendid, headlong, endlessly comic and evocative". (John Updike). "Lolita is more the shocking because it is both intensely lyrical and wildly funny ...a Medusa's head with trick paper snakes". ("Time"). "His command of words, his joy in them, his comic and ecstatic use of them ...makes reading his work such an intense joy". ("Daily Telegraph"). "A great novel...It widens our own humanity". ("Guardian"). "There's no funnier monster in modern literature than poor, doomed Humbert Humbert. Going to hell in his company would always be worth the ride". ("Independent"). Vladimir Nabokov was born in St. Petersburg in 1899. He studied at Trinity College, Cambridge, before moving to Berlin in 1922. Between 1923 and 1940 he published novels, short stories, plays, poems and translations in the Russian language and established himself as one of the most outstanding Russian emigre writers. In 1940 he moved with his wife and son to America, where he worked as a lecturer and professor until he retired from teaching in 1959. Nabokov published his first novel in English, "The Real Life of Sebastian Knight", in 1941. His other books include "Ada"; "Laughter in the Dark"; "Despair"; "Pnin"; "Nabokov's Dozen"; "Invitation to a Beheading"; "Mary"; "Bend Sinister"; "Glory"; "Pale Fire"; "The Gift"; "The Luzhin Defense" and "Lolita", which brought him worldwide fame. In 1973 he was awarded the American National Medal for Literature. Vladimir Nabokov died in 1977.

An action-packed novel that ushers in a new age of adventure in the critically acclaimed StarCraft series from Blizzard Entertainment Award-winning author Timothy Zahn pens the latest chapter in the stunning StarCraft saga, building on the game's rich legacy to create an unforgettable new story. After nearly a decade of brutal warfare, three mighty factions-the enigmatic protoss, the savage zerg, and the terrans, humanity's descendants in the sector-have entered a cease-fire, but the peace is tenuous at best. When the sudden restoration of an incinerated planet is brought to light, tensions erupt. Neutrality swings back to hostility, and old enemies are accused of developing biological weapons to reignite the bitter conflict. An expedition of terran and protoss soldiers and researchers is deployed to investigate the mysterious zerg planet and its inhabitants' intentions. But the lush alien landscape is host to other denizens, creatures shrouded in shadow, and should they be unleashed, they will change the fate of the entire galaxy.

Catastrophe and Catharsis Camden House Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Destroying human habitat and taking human lives, disasters, be they natural, man-made, or a combination, threaten large populations, even entire nations and societies. They also disrupt the existing order and cause discontinuity in our sense of self and our perceptions of the world. To restore order, not only must human beings be rescued and affected areas rebuilt, but the reality of the catastrophe must also be transformed into narrative. The essays in this collection examine representations of disaster in literature, film, and mass media in German and international contexts, exploring the nexus between disruption and recovery through narrative from the eighteenth century to the present. Topics include the Lisbon earthquake, the Paris Commune, the Hamburg and Dresden fire-bombings in the Second World War, nuclear disasters in Alexander Kluge's films, the filmic aesthetics of catastrophe, Yoko Tawada's lectures on the Fukushima disaster and Christa Wolf's novel Storfall in light of that same disaster, Joseph Haslinger and the tsunami of 2004, traditions regarding avalanche disaster in the Tyrol, and the problems and implications of defining disaster. Contributors: Christoph Weber, Tanja Nusser, Carol Anne Costabile-Heming, Yasemin Dayioglu-Yucel, Torsten Pflugmacher, Lars Koch, Jan Hinrichsen, Claudia Jerzak, Janine Hartman, Franz Mauelshagen. Katharina Gerstenberger is Professor and Chair of the Department of Languages and Literature at the University of Utah. Tanja Nusser is DAAD Visiting Associate Professor of German at the University of Cincinnati.
