Terrible Privacy Of Maxwell Sim

Jonathan Coe

"Maxwell Sim can’t seem to make a single meaningful connection. He maintains an e-mail correspondence with his estranged wife, though under a false identity; his incomprehensible teenage daughter prefers her BlackBerry to his conversation; and his childhood best friend refuses to return his calls. In an attempt to get out of this horrible rut, Max quits his job at the local department store and accepts a strange business proposition that has him driving a Prius full of toothbrushes from London to the remote Shetland Islands. But Max’s trip doesn’t go as planned, as he’s unable to resist making a series of impromptu visits to important figures from his past.

A modern-day picaresque from Jonathan Coe—acclaimed author of The Rotters’ Club—The Terrible Privacy of Maxwell Sim explores the difficulties of making genuine connections in a world of advanced communications technology and rampant social networking".

The Terrible Privacy Of Maxwell Sim / Jonathan Coe: Vintage, London, 2010.

The Labours Of Hercules

Agatha Christie

The Labours Of Hercules / Agatha Christie: Harper&Collins, London, 2008.

На английском языке. Аннотация:

"Poirot sets himself a challenge before he retires – to solve 12 cases which correspond with the labours of his classical Greek namesake…

In appearance Hercule Poirot hardly resembled an ancient Greek hero. Yet – reasoned the detective – like Hercules he had been responsible for ridding society of some of its most unpleasant monsters.

So, in the period leading up to his retirement, Poirot made up his mind to accept just twelve more cases: his self-imposed ‘Labours’. Each would go down in the annals of crime as a heroic feat of deduction".

ABC Murders

Agatha Christie

ABC Murders / Agatha Christie: Harper&Collins, London, 2007.

На английском языке. Аннотация:

"Agatha Christie’s world-famous serial killer mystery, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers.

There’s a serial killer on the loose, bent on working his way through the alphabet. And as a macabre calling card he leaves beside each victim’s corpe the ABC Railway Guide open at the name of the town where the murder has taken place.

Having begun with Andover, Bexhill and then Churston, there seems little chance of the murderer being caught – until he makes the crucial and vain mistake of challenging Hercule Poirot to frustrate his plans…".

Translations: A Play

Brian Friel

Translations: A Play / Brian Friel: Faber&Faber, London, 1995.

На английском языке. Аннотация:

"The action takes place in late August 1833 at a hedge-school in the townland of Baile Beag, an Irish-speaking community in County Donegal. In a nearby field camps a recently arrived detachment of the Royal Engineers, making the first Ordnance Survey. For the purposes of cartography, the local Gaelic place names have to be recorded and rendered into English. In examining the effects of this operation on the lives of a small group, Brian Friel skillfully reveals the far-reaching personal and cultural effects of an action which is at first sight purely administrative".

No Country For Old Men

Cormac McCarthy

No Country For Old Men / Cormac McCarthy: Picador, London, 2005.

На английском языке. Аннотация:

"The book simultaneously strips down the American crime novel and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible and as bloodily contemporary as this morning’s headlines".

London: A Short History

A.N.Wilson

London: A Short History / A.N.Wilson: Phoenix, London, 2005.

На английском языке. Аннотация:

"A short, entertaining and passionate history of London by the bestselling author of "The Victorians". The structure of the book is chronological, with digressions.

From Roman and then Norman London, we move on to Chaucer's London - the city of the Peasants Revolt, Dick Whittington and the great Livery Companies. In Tudor and Stuart London many believed the city was being wrecked by over-population, over-building and the greed of speculators. Eighteenth-century London witnessed the South Sea Bubble, gin, highwaymen and the Gordon riots; but also banking, hospitals, and the elegant design of everyday things.

In the nineteenth century, expanding vigorously, the city resisted any overall make-over. With Queen Victoria came the Railway Age, which made and unmade the city. The First World War was a nightmare happening elsewhere, the amazing six years of 1939-45 were the city's finest hour. Post-1945, property developers took over, with disastrous results.

The author celebrates the cosmopolitan city that mobility and immigration have created, while deploring the 'moronization' of the city, exemplified by the Millennium".
