Despite the fact that Tom has only read only one book in his life, when Hannah hires him to install shelving for the shop, the two discover an astonishing spark. Recently abandoned by an unfaithful wife — and still missing her sweet son, Peter — Tom dares to believe that he might make Hannah happy. But Hannah is a haunted woman. Twenty-four years earlier, she had been marched to the gates of Auschwitz.

Eighteen-year-old college student Clay is back in his hometown of Los Angeles for Christmas break. Clay is three things: rich, bored and looking to get high. As he reacquaints himself with a familiarly limitless world of privilege, along with his best friend and his ex, his shocking, stunning and disturbing adventure is filled with non-stop drinking in glamorous nightclubs, drug-fuelled parties, and endless sexual encounters.Published in 1985, when Bret Easton Ellis was just twenty-one, Less Than Zero is a fierce coming-of-age story which quickly defined a genre. A cult classic beloved for its dogged portrayal of hedonistic youth and the morally depraved, this extraordinary and instantly famous novel is a landmark in modern fiction: an inventive, precocious and invigorating story of getting what you want when you want it.

This edition presents the sixteen tales of the original collection ranging from well-known and acknowledged gems such as Agafya and On the Road to others which will be fresh even to many seasoned readers of Chekhov in a brand-new translation by Hugh Aplin, providing an invaluable glimpse into a pivotal moment in the writer s literary career. In the Twilight, the third collection of short stories compiled by Anton Chekhov himself, was his first major success and won him the prestigious Pushkin Prize when it was published in 1887. This volume represents a clear milestone in the writer's passage from the youthful Antosha Chekhonte, author of slight comic sketches, to the mature master of the short-story genre.

In the summer of 1862, a group of young artists led by the passionate and talented Edward Radcliffe descends upon Birchwood Manor on the banks of the Upper Thames. Their plan: to spend a secluded summer month in a haze of inspiration and creativity. But by the time their stay is over, one woman has been shot dead while another has disappeared; a priceless heirloom is missing; and Edward Radcliffe’s life is in ruins.Over one hundred and fifty years later, Elodie Winslow, a young archivist in London, uncovers a leather satchel containing two seemingly unrelated items: a sepia photograph of an arresting-looking woman in Victorian clothing, and an artist’s sketchbook containing the drawing of a twin-gabled house on the bend of a river.Why does Birchwood Manor feel so familiar to Elodie? And who is the beautiful woman in the photograph? Will she ever give up her secrets?Told by multiple voices across time, The Clockmaker’s Daughter is a story of murder, mystery and thievery, of art, love... Скрыть Показать весь текст

Since the 1922 publication of Babbitt, its eponymous antihero—a prosperous real estate broker and relentless social climber inhabiting a Midwestern town called Zenith—has become a symbol of stultifying values and middle-class hypocrisy. At once a conformist and a rebel, George F. Babbitt represents an ordinary man whose life turns upside down during one of the most profound sea changes in American cultural history: the mechanization and hucksterism of the Roaring Twenties. Babbitt, his family, and his social circle are the very essence of the American Dream in all its glory and emptiness, and their story is a stirring portrait of a way of life in profound flux. Babbitt remains one of Sinclair Lewis’s most widely read novels. Contemptible and touching, frivolous and tragic, Babbitt is a rich, complex character whose legacy carries an eerie resonance to this day. Скрыть Показать весь текст

This is a journey only a dreamer – or a fugitive – would attempt.Fierce and lyrical, The Shepherd's Hut by Tim Winton is a story of survival, solitude and unlikely friendship. Most of all it is about what it takes to keep hope alive in a parched and brutal world. . Скрыть Показать весь текст

October 1946, Clanton, Mississippi.Pete Banning was Clanton, Mississippi’s favorite son—a decorated World War II hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, father, neighbor, and a faithful member of the Methodist church. Then one cool October morning he rose early, drove into town, and committed a shocking crime. Pete's only statement about it—to the sheriff, to his lawyers, to the judge, to the jury, and to his family—was: "I have nothing to say." He was not afraid of death and was willing to take his motive to the grave.In a major novel unlike anything he has written before, John Grisham takes us on an incredible journey, from the Jim Crow South to the jungles of the Philippines during World War II; from an insane asylum filled with secrets to the Clanton courtroom where Pete’s defense attorney tries desperately to save him.Reminiscent of the finest tradition of Southern Gothic storytelling, The Reckoning would not be complete without Grisham’s signature layers of legal...

Роман «1984» — вершина творчества Джорджа Оруэлла. В нем показано общество, в котором люди четко разделены на классы: верхний, привилегированный, партийная верхушка; средний, не имеющий права ни на что, находящийся под постоянным прицелом телекамер и подслушивающих устройств, лишенный общения и эмоций, делающий механическую работу по регулярному переписыванию истории, обделенный во всем; низший — как бы пролетариат. В этом обществе искореняется любая мысль; человекживет в страхе наказания, которое неизбежно последует за любую провинность. Такое общество уничтожает в человеке все человеческое. Чтобы человек меньше думал, примитивизируется язык, переписываются книги и газеты, поощряется доносительство, предательство — даже своих близких. Не остается ничего святого и, соответственно, ничего, для чего хотелось бы жить. Этот роман — захватывающее, но страшное повествование о том, что могло бы произойти и в СССР времен Сталина, если бы история повернулась иначе. В книге приводится... Скрыть Показать весь текст
