Liars' Club Pan Macmillan

Mary Karr grew up in a swampy East Texas refinery town in a volatile and defiantly loving family. In this devastating, haunting memoir, she looks back at life with a painter mother, seven times married, whose outlaw spirit could tip over into psychosis, and a heavy-drinking, fist-swinging father who liked nothing better than to spin tales with his cronies at the Liars' Club. Telling her story with a raw and often painful honesty, and an authenticity entirely stripped of self-pity, the harshness of the world Karr paints is redeemed by her warmth, intelligent humour and finely spun prose; The Liars' Club is both heart-stopping and heartfelt - a classic memoir.

SOMEONE NEW IS PLAYING GOD The Frankenstein story updated to the 21st century by the great American storyteller Dean Koontz. In a powerful reworking of one of the classic stories of all time, Dr Frankenstein lives on, seemingly indestructible, more malignant than ever. Frankenstein's first monster, Deucalion, has spent two hundred years trying to put an end to his creator. Now he learns that a new Frankenstein clone, Victor Helios, is out there again, somewhere. Terrifyingly, with each incarnation the sinister doctor draws closer to the possibility of succeeding in his ambition to create a new human race - which he will control. He has found an enigmatic backer and is working in a secret location. Together with the two ex-cops who helped him destroy the previous Victor, Deucalion is drawn to the small Montana town where Victor's grotesque new creations are taking shape. Victor's New Race is spectacularly different, a product of cutting-edge technology and stem-cell circuits, and when things go wrong, they go wrong in very unexpected ways. Frankenstein is unleashing a new menace on the world, whether or not he can control it. It may be too late, even if Deucalion can bring him down.

Night Before Christmas Penguin Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Gogol's classic, uproarious folktale, presented in a beautiful hardcover edition perfect for giving as a gift. Written in 1831, this dark tale relates the adventures of Vakula, the blacksmith, in his fight against the devil, who has stolen the moon above the village of Dikanka and is wreaking havoc on its inhabitants, all to win the love of the most beautiful girl in town. The basis for many film and opera adaptations, and still a story traditionally read aloud to children on Christmas Eve in Ukraine and Russia, The Night Before Christmas is the best holiday tale by the man whom Vladimir Nabokov called 'the greatest writer Russia has yet produced'. Nikolai Gogol (1809-1852) was the son of a Ukrainian gentleman farmer. He attended a variety of boarding schools, where he proved an indifferent student but was admired for his theatrical abilities. In 1828 he moved to St. Petersburg and began to publish stories, and by the mid-1830s he had established himself in the literary world and been warmly praised by Pushkin. In 1836, his play The Inspector-General was attacked as immoral, and he left Russia, remaining abroad for most of the next dozen years. During that time he wrote two of his best-known stories, 'The Nose' and 'The Overcoat,' and in 1842 he published the first section of his masterpiece Dead Souls. Gogol became increasingly religious as the years passed, and in 1847 he became the disciple of an Orthodox priest who influenced him to burn the second part of Dead Souls and then abandon writing altogether. After undertaking an extreme fast, he died at the age of forty-two.

"Once upon a time, a mysterious time that exists through a window in your mind, a time that seemed, to those present, exactly like now does to us, except their teeth weren't so clean and more things were wooden, there was a town called Hamelin ...". In the first in his series of Trickster Tales, Russell Brand retells the classic children's story "The Pied Piper of Hamelin". In this book you will be enchanted and revolted in equal measure by the host of characters you meet along the way: the anarchic rats, the arrogant towns people, sharp-eyed Sam and of course the Pied Piper himself, all brought to life in Brand's inimitable style and with the illustrations of Costa Award-winner Chris Riddell.

Life and Adventures of Edmund Kean, Tragedian, Vol. 1 of 2 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Life and Adventures of Edmund Kean, Tragedian, Vol. 1 of 2: 1787-1833 In the following pages an attempt is made to present Edmund Kean as the central figure of a picture, surrounded by a group of players familiar to the town in the early decades of this century. The story of his strange and changeful career must alike interest lovers of the drama and students of humanity. Neither does comedy contain circumstances more varied, nor tragedy present incidents more pathetic, than those he experienced in his brief life and untimely death. His vivid imagination, clear perception, and uncommon sensibility endowed him with extraordinary powers, and at the same time subjected him to baleful influences from which his less gifted and more happy fellows were free; so that he was not less remarkable for his success than notable for his misfortune.

Excerpt from How It Was Done in Harmony: A Story of Adult Class Work The day I have looked forward to for seven years! "Nothing but God's glad out of doors will suit me this morning," he thought. Then he hurried to the street. Joyfully Philip Ostend walked the streets of Andean, a town noted for its beauty. But he was not there to note the beauty of his surroundings; he was walking because he was too happy to stay in the cozy room provided for him by the hostess who had begged for the privilege of entertaining the young man who was to be the central figure of the ceremony that evening. "Seven years!" he repeated, as he headed toward the open country. "I thought the time would be long, and it has really been short. Four years in college and three years in the seminary. And such good years, too! Now that I have come to the time of my ordination I feel sorry the days with the class are over."

Best of Everything Penguin Books

When it first published in 1958, Rona Jaffe's debut novel electrified readers who saw themselves reflected in its story of five young employees of a New York publishing company. There's Ivy League Caroline, who dreams of graduating from the typing pool to an editor's office; naive country girl April, who within months of hitting town reinvents herself as the woman every man wants on his arm; and, Gregg, the free-spirited actress with a secret yearning for domesticity. Now a classic, and as page-turning as when it first came out, "The Best of Everything" portrays their lives and passions with intelligence, affection, and prose as sharp as a paper cut.

Excerpt from The Connecticut River: And the Valley of the Connecticut, Three Hundred and Fifty Miles From Mountain to Sea The story of the Connecticut River and the Valley of the Connecticut is so mingled with the history of the country, and particularly of the formative periods, that in the proper telling of it much of history must also be related. Accordingly in the following pages there will be found blended with descriptions of the longest river in New England and one of the fairest valleys in the country, narrations of Indian and colonial wars; of the establishment or evolution of democratic government; of the pioneer development of internal improvements and of industries; of the planting and upbuilding of many and varied institutions of learning, colleges, academies, and schools, for higher education - more than on any other river in the world - and withal of the growth and unfolding of the genuine American character. In the study of my subject, besides consulting the various histories, colonial, state, county, and town, bearing upon it, historical monographs, family papers, diaries, and contemporary narrative, I have gone, so far as they were accessible, to original authorities.

Sunset Boulevard University Press Group Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"Sunset Boulevard" (1950) is one of the most famous films in the history of Hollywood, and perhaps no film better represents Hollywood's vision of itself. Billy Wilder collaborated on the screenplay with the very able Charles Brackett, and with D. M. Marshman Jr., who later joined the team. Together they created a film both allusive and literate, with Hollywood's worst excesses and neuroses laid out for all to see. After viewing "Sunset Boulevard" Louis B. Mayer exclaimed: 'We should throw this Wilder out of town!' "The New York Times", however, gave the movie a rave review, praising 'that rare blend of pungent writing, expert acting, masterly direction, and unobtrusively artistic photography.' The film was nominated for Best Picture, and Wilder won an Academy Award for Best Story and Best Screenplay. This facsimile edition of "Sunset Boulevard" makes it possible to get as much pleasure from reading the highly intelligent screenplay as from seeing the film. Jeffrey Meyers' introduction provides an intriguing array of background details about Wilder, the film's casting and production, and the lives of those connected to what has become a classic.

The Rise of David Levinsky Modern Library

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Rise of David Levinsky, written by the legendary founder and editor of the "Jewish Daily Forward," is an early Jewish-American classic. According to the scholar Sam B. Girgus, "The novel is more than an important literary work and cultural document. It forms part of the traditional ritual of renewal of the American Way." First published in 1917, Abraham Cahan's realistic novel tells the story of a young talmudic scholar who emigrates from a small town in Russia to the melting pot of turn-of-the-century New York City. As the Jewish "greenhorn" rises from the depths of poverty to become a millionaire garment merchant, he discovers the unbearably high price of assimilation.
