Love Story

Erich Segal

Love Story / Erich Segal: Hoddor, London, 2013.

На аглийском языке. Аннотация:

"Oliver Barrett IV, a wealthy jock from a stuffy WASP family on his way to a Harvard degree and a career in law. Jenny Cavilleri, a sharp-tongued, working-class beauty studying music at Radcliffe. Opposites in nearly every way, Oliver and Jenny are kindred spirits from vastly different worlds. Falling deeply and powerfully, their attraction to one another defies everything they have ever believed—as they share a passion far greater than anything they dreamed possible, and explore the wonder of a love that must end too soon.

One of the most adored novels of our time, this is the book that defined a generation—a story of uncompromising devotion, of life as it really is and love, that changes everything".

Lynch On Lynch

David Lynch, Chris Rodley

Lynch On Lynch / David Lynch: Faber & Faber, New York, 2005.

Edited by Chris Rodley. Revised edition.

На английском языке. Аннотация:

"David Lynch erupted onto the cinema landscape in 1977 with 'Eraserhead', establishing himself as one of the most original and imaginative directors at work in contemporary cinema. Over the course of his career, he has remained true to a vision of the innocent lost in darkness and confusion, balancing hallucination and surrealism with a sense of Americana that is as pure and simple as his compelling storylines. In this volume, Lynch speaks openly about his films as well as about his lifelong commitment to painting, his work in photography, his television projects, and his musical collaborations with Angelo Badalamenti".

Nelson Mandela. Conversations With Myself

Nelson Mandela

Conversations With Myself / Nelson Mandela: Macmillan, London, 2010.

Foreword by Barack Obama.

На английском языке. Аннотация:

"Nelson Mandela is one of the most inspiring and iconic figures of our age. Now, after a lifetime of recording thoughts and events, hardships and victories, he has opened his personal archive, which offers unprecedented insight into his remarkable autobiography.

From letters written in the darkest hours of his twenty-seven years of imprisonment to the draft of an unfinished sequel to Long Walk to Freedom, Conversations with Myself gives readers access to the private man behind the public figure. Here he is making notes and even doodling during meetings, or transcribing troubled dreams on the desk calendar in his prison cell on Robben Island; writing journals while on the run during the anti-apartheid struggle in the early 1960s, and conversing with friends in almost seventy hours of recorded conversations. Here he is neither icon nor saint.

An intimate journey from the first stirrings of political consciousness to his galvanizing role on the world stage, Conversations with Myself is a rare chance to spend time with Nelson Mandela the man, in his own voice: direct, clear, private".

The New York Times bestseller!

"For more than six decades Elizabeth Taylor has been a part of our lives. Now acclaimed biographer J.

1000 Years Of Annoying the French

Stephen Clarke

1000 Years of Annoying the French / Stephen Clarke: Black Swan Books, London, 2011.

На английском языке. Аннотация:

"Was the Battle of Hastings a French victory? Non! William the Conqueror was Norman and hated the French. Were the Brits really responsible for the death of Joan of Arc? Non! The French sentenced her to death for wearing trousers. Was the guillotine a French invention? Non! It was invented in Yorkshire. Ten centuries' worth of French historical 'facts' bite the dust as Stephen Clarke looks at what has really been going on since 1066...".

The Red House

Mark Haddon

The Red House / Mark Haddon: Vintage Books, London, 2013.

A Washington Post Best Book of the Year!

На английском языке. Аннотация:

"From Mark Haddon, the bestselling author of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, comes a dazzlingly inventive novel about modern family life.

Richard, a wealthy doctor, invites his estranged sister and her family to join his family for a week at a vacation home in the English countryside. Against the backdrop of a strange family gathering, Haddon skillfully weaves together the stories of eight very different people forced into close quarters. The Red House is a symphony of long-held grudges, fading dreams and rising hopes, tightly guarded secrets and illicit desires, painting a portrait of contemporary family life that is at once bittersweet, comic, and deeply felt".

The Bell Jar (P.S.)

Sylvia Plath

The Bell Jar / Sylvia Plath: Harper Perennial Modern Classics, New York, 2005.

На английском языке. Аннотация:

"The Bell Jar chronicles the crack-up of Esther Greenwood: brilliant, beautiful, enormously talented, and successful, but slowly going under -- maybe for the last time. Sylvia Plath masterfully draws the reader into Esther's breakdown with such intensity that Esther's insanity becomes completely real and even rational, as probable and accessible an experience as going to the movies. Such deep penetration into the dark and harrowing corners of the psyche is an extraordinary accomplishment and has made The Bell Jar a haunting American classic.

This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more".

My Sister Lives On the Mantelpiece

Annabel Pitcher

My Sister Lives On the Mantelpiece / Annabel Pitcher: Indigo, London, 2013.

На английском языке. Аннотация:

"My sister Rose lives on the mantelpiece.
Well, some of her does.
A collarbone, two ribs, a bit of skull, and a little toe.

To ten-year-old Jamie, his family has fallen apart because of the loss of someone he barely remembers: his sister Rose, who died five years ago in a terrorist bombing. To his father, life is impossible to make sense of when he lives in a world that could so cruelly take away a ten-year-old girl. To Rose's surviving fifteen year old twin, Jas, everyday she lives in Rose's ever present shadow, forever feeling the loss like a limb, but unable to be seen for herself alone.

Told with warmth and humor, this powerful novel is a sophisticated take on one family's struggle to make sense of the loss that's torn them apart... and their discovery of what it means to stay together".
