The Chandelier
Wydawca: Penguin Books
wysyłka: 48h
'She found the best clay that one could desire: white, supple, sticky, cold ... She would get a clear and tender material from which she could shape a world' Like the clay from which she sculpts figurines as a girl, Virginia is constantly shifting and changing. From her dreamlike childhood on Quiet Farm with her adored brother Daniel, through an adulthood where the past continues to pull her back and shape her, she moves through life, grasping for the truth of existence. Illuminating Virginia's progress through intense flashes of image, sensation and perception, The Chandelier, Lispector's landmark second novel, is a disorienting and exhilarating portrait of one woman's inner life.

Okładka książki Stany uprzywilejowane
Opowiadania zawarte w tym tomie są niezwykle żywe, ironiczne, skrzące się dowcipem, wyczulone na konkret. I – choć niby wyabstrahowane z konkretnej rzeczywistości – mówią bardzo wiele i bardzo krytycznie o naszym wspólnym tu i teraz. Działanie i dzianie się schodzą tutaj na plan dalszy – bohaterowie tych często groteskowych tekstów to przede wszystkim myśliciele i mówcy, czynni uczestnicy zajmujących dialogów, jakby wyjętych z teatru absurdu. Główną rolę grają opowiadania, w których najważniejsze są strona językowa, aspekt teoretyczno-filozoficzny oraz sieć intertekstualnych nawiązań. O charakterze całości tomu najlepiej świadczy wręcz brawurowe opowiadanie „Instrukcja napisania powieści bernhardowskiej”, stanowiące serce i/lub mózg całego tomu – smakowity kąsek dla wielbicieli twórczości Thomasa Bernharda.

Okładka książki Slapstick or Lonesome No More
Manhattan has become the Island of Death. The former President of the United States stands barefoot in a purple toga around a cooking fire in the lobby of the Empire State Building. He is Dr Wilbur Daffodil-II Swain and Slapstick or Lonesome No More! is his story – one of monstrous twins, orgies, revenge, golf, utopian schemes, and very little tooth brushing. In this post-apocalyptic black comedy – dedicated to Laurel and Hardy – Vonnegut is at his most hilarious, grotesque, and personal.

Steppenwolf
Autor: Hesse Herman
Wydawca: Penguin Books
wysyłka: 48h
'The unhappiness that I need and long for . . . is of the kind that will let me suffer with eagerness and die with lust. That is the unhappiness, or happiness, that I am waiting for.' Alienated from society, Harry Haller is the Steppenwolf, wild, strange and shy. His despair and desire for death draw him into an enchanted, Faust-like underworld. Through a series of shadowy encounters, romantic, freakish and savage by turn, Haller begins to rediscover the lost dreams of his youth. Adopted by the Sixties counterculture, Steppenwolf captured the mood of a disaffected generation that was beginning to question everything.

Okładka książki What We Talk About When We Talk About Love
This powerful collection of stories, set in the mid-West among the lonely men and women who drink, fish and play cards to ease the passing of time, was the first by Raymond Carver to be published in the UK. With its spare, colloquial narration and razor-sharp sense of how people really communicate, the collection was to become one of the most influential literary works of the 1980s.

Okładka książki Notes from Underground and the Double
Collected here in Penguin Classics are two of Fyodor Dostoyevsky's shorter works, Notes from Underground and The Double, translated by Ronald Wilks with an introduction by Robert Louis Jackson. Alienated from society and paralysed by a sense of his own insignificance, the anonymous narrator of Dostoyevsky's groundbreaking Notes from Underground tells the story of his tortured life. With bitter irony, he describes his refusal to become a worker in the 'anthill' of society and his gradual withdrawal to an existence 'underground'. The seemingly ordinary world of St Petersburg takes on a nightmarish quality in The Double when a government clerk encounters a man who looks exactly like him - his double, perhaps, or possibly the darker side of his own personality. Like Notes from Underground, this is a masterly tragicomic study of human consciousness.

Okładka książki Gąsienica
Gąsienica
Autor: Edogawa Ranpo
Wydawca: Tajfuny
wysyłka: 48h
Stolarz ukryty w fotelu, studenci planujący zbrodnię doskonałą, znudzeni życiem fanatycy ekscytujących doznań, kaleki weteran wojny japońsko-chińskiej – bohaterów opowiadań Ranpo Edogawy łączy obsesja, która stopniowo przeradza się w obłęd. Edogawa, jak mało który pisarz, potrafił wydobyć z ludzkiej psychiki to, co najmroczniejsze, ale robił to w przystępnej dla każdego formie. „Gąsienica” to kolekcja siedmiu opowiadań, które pokazują różne etapy twórczości pisarza, uważanego za ojca japońskich kryminałów. Znajdziemy tu inspirowane Arthurem Conanem Doylem historie detektywistyczne, ale też toczące się na granicy jawy i snu mrożące krew w żyłach opowieści grozy. Wszystkie zaś dobrze znane japońskim czytelnikom, dla których zagadki wymyślone przez Ranpo Edogawę stanowią literacki kanon. Za wybór i przekład z japońskiego odpowiada Dariusz Latoś. Wprowadzenie do tomu autorstwa Andrzeja Świrkowskiego, który na Uniwersytecie im. Adama Mickiewicza w Poznaniu bada twórczość Edogawy i jest chyba jedynym w Polsce „ranpologiem”, pozwoli jeszcze lepiej odnaleźć się i zanurzyć w świecie pisarza.

Tarantula
Autor: Dylan Bob
Wydawca: Harper Perennial
wysyłka: 48h
Bob Dylan's only fictional book, Tarantula was written in 1966 during the creative peak that produced Blonde on Blonde. Reminiscent of Dylan's best songs, it is essential reading for anyone interested in his creative processes. Initial publication was repeatedly delayed, and Tarantula circulated for years only as a bookleg photocopied from reviewers advance proofs. Fittingly, perhaps, because this is a book that captures the tone and spirit of the turbulent times in which it was written.

To the Back of Beyond
Autor: Stamm Peter
Wydawca: Granta Books
wysyłka: 48h
After returning from a pleasant holiday with his wife, Astrid, and their two children, Thomas walks out the front door. Thomas walks up the street. Thomas keeps walking. Astrid gradually realizes that her husband has not just gotten up early to go to work. She waits for as long as she can and then puts as much energy as she can into trying to find him - coming to understand, along the way, that there is little she can do if Thomas is striving to stay lost. In precise and hypnotic prose that cuts as cleanly as a scalpel, To the Back of Beyond is a novel that takes away the safe foundations of a marriage and a lifestyle to ask deeper questions about identity, connection and how free we are to change our lives. It is a graceful and resonant work from one of Europe's most important writers.
