The Provincial Lady
A special edition of The Provincial Lady by E. M. Delafield reissued with a bright retro design to celebrate Pan's 70th anniversary. The Provincial Lady should lead a charmed, upper-middle class life in her Devonshire village but with a husband reluctant to do anything but doze behind The Times, mischievous children and trying servants, it's a challenge keeping up appearances on an inadequate income, particularly in front of the infuriating and haughty Lady Boxe. Delightfully witty, the Provincial Lady was the Bridget Jones of the 1930s, documenting the chaotic peculiarities of everyday life with wonderful wit and humour. This abridged edition takes the very best extracts from her first two `diaries' and presents them as one brilliantly comic novel.

England Their England
A special edition of England, Their England by A. G. Macdonell reissued with a bright retro design to celebrate Pan's 70th anniversary. Banished from his native Scotland by a curious clause in his father's will, Donald Cameron moves to London and decides to conduct a study of the English people; a strange race who, he is told, have built an entire national identity around a reverence for team spirit and the memory of Lord Nelson . . . What follows is one of the funniest social satires ever written. Whether Cameron is haplessly participating in a village cricket match, being shown around an exclusive golf course, or trying to watch a rugby match in the thick London fog, his affectionately bemused portrait of his new countrymen is a joy to read. Reminiscent of the gentle wit of P. G. Wodehouse and Jerome K. Jerome, England, Their England offers a delightful portrait of Britain in the 1920s.

W królestwie motyli
Stella Douglas odkrywa rodzinną tajemnicę. Przed 16 laty jej uznawana za zmarłą matka Olivia uciekła z domu. Stella wyrusza w fascynującą podróż po Europie, Afryce i Bliskim Wschodzie z nadzieją, że uda się jej odnaleźć matkę żywą. Jedyną wskazówką są czarne perły z magicznego naszyjnika lady Olivii. Za każdą z nich kryje się zaskakująca historia. Stella odwiedza Dolinę Motyli na wyspie Rodos. Jest absolutnie zachwycona ich skrzącymi się w słońcu kolorowymi skrzydłami oraz uspokajającym szumem, jaki słychać w tym miejscu. Jest jak w transie i czuje się niczym w raju. Nigdy nie widziała czegoś tak pięknego! Gdy wreszcie opuszcza dolinę, tuż za zakrętem staje oko w oko z zaskakującą prawdą... Kiedy otworzyła oczy, to, co zobaczyła, wyrwało ją z otępienia i rozpaczy. Poniżej rozciągała się dolinka, a w niej w powietrzu wirowały setki, tysiące motyli. Ich kolorowe skrzydełka lśniły w blasku słońca. Z fascynacją patrzyła w dół, a potem jak w transie ruszyła po skałach, aż stanęła na miękkim podłożu w dolinie. Nie widziała już niczego poza kolorowymi, roztańczonymi stworzonkami. Czuła, że porywają ją do swojej kolorowej afirmacji życia.

What Belongs to You
What Belongs to You
Wydawca: Picador
wysyłka: 48h
On an unseasonably warm autumn day, an American teacher walks down a staircase beneath Sofia's National Palace of Culture, looking for sex. Among the stalls of a public bathroom he encounters Mitko, a charismatic young hustler. He returns to Mitko again and again over the next few months, and their trysts grow increasingly intimate and unnerving as the enigma of this young man becomes inseparable from that of his homeland, Bulgaria, a country with a difficult past and an uncertain future. Garth Greenwell's What Belongs to You is a stunning debut about an American expat struggling with his own complicated inheritance while navigating a foreign culture. Lyrical and intense, it tells the story of a man caught between longing and resentment, unable to separate desire from danger, and faced with the impossibility of understanding those he most longs to know.

Niepoznany nieznajomy
Kiedy współcześnie sztuka pisania listów wypierana przez medialne środki urasta do rangi wyjątkowości, Ryszard Wojnowicz przypomina nam o tym, co dawniej było czymś najnormalniejszym. Piękna powieść o dojrzałej miłości. Narrator z perspektywy parkowej ławki maluje przed nami obrazy metaforą, przemycając wiele życiowych mądrości i skłaniając do głębszej refleksji. Ciepła, sugestywna, wzbudzająca wiele pozytywnych emocji. Szczerze polecam! Agnieszka Krizel (Recenzje Agi)

The Nix
The Nix
Autor: Hill Nathan
Wydawca: Picador
wysyłka: 48h
'The best new writer of fiction in America. The best.' - John Irving Nathan Hill's brilliant debut takes the reader from the rural Midwest of the 1960s, to New York City during Occupy Wall Street; from Chicago in 1968, to wartime Norway: home of the mysterious Nix. Meet Samuel: stalled writer, bored teacher at a local college, obsessive player of online video games. He hasn't seen his mother, Faye, in decades, not since she abandoned her family when he was a boy. Now she has suddenly reappeared, having committed an absurd politically motivated crime that electrifies the nightly news, beguiles the Internet, and inflames a divided America. The media paints Faye as a radical hippie with a sordid past, but as far as Samuel knows, his mother was an ordinary girl who married her high-school sweetheart. Which version of his mother is true? Two facts are certain: she's facing some serious charges, and she needs Samuel's help. As Samuel begins to excavate his mother's - and his country's - history, he will unexpectedly find that he has to rethink everything he ever knew about her - a woman with an epic story of her own, a story she has kept hidden from the world.

Takiej książki dawno nie było: oszczędna w słowach, ale niezwykle pobudzająca wyobraźnię; prawdziwa, ale bez narzucania czytelnikowi sposobu odbioru, oceny bohaterów; uniwersalna w swojej wymowie - każdy może odnaleźć siebie i swój świat, w którym żyje, a jednocześnie nie odnosi się ona do konkretnego miejsca. To świat współczesny, ale uświadamiamy sobie, że to już było, czyli że nic się nie...

Tentamer albo zbrodnia Ikara
„Tentamer albo zbrodnia Ikara“ – sam tytuł tłumaczy treść zawierającą problem wynarodowionego młodego człowieka, który wrócił do kraju jako repatriant na przełomie lat pięćdziesiątych i sześćdziesiątych i ma trudności adaptacyjne. W powieści opisane są perypetie z wrastaniem w nowe środowisko, konflikty towarzyskie, przypadkowe romanse i spory na tle politycznym. Refleksja o przeszłości przeplata się z teraźniejszością. Wybuchowy temperament przysparza bohaterowi nieporozumień. Stąd też odwołanie do mitu o Dedalu i Ikarze, odwołanie do zbrodni nieposłuszeństwa wobec ojca. Reminisencje – mądry Dedal i narwaniec Ikar, który nie usłuchał rad ojcowskich, w konsekwencji spotkała go kara: roztrzaskał się o skały. Stąd – zbrodnia Ikara, jako przestroga dla Tentamera, a w rezultacie: akceptacja, pogodzenie się z losem i z tym, co zastał w nowej rzeczywistości.
