Okładka książki A Room of Ones Own and Three Guineas
This volume combines two books which were among the greatest contributions to feminist literature this century. Together they form a brilliant attack on sexual inequality. A Room of One's Own, first published in 1929, is a witty, urbane and persuasive argument against the intellectual subjection of women, particularly women writers. The sequel, Three Guineas, is a passionate polemic which draws a startling comparison between the tyrannous hypocrisy of the Victorian patriarchal system and the evils of fascism.

Okładka książki The Beauty Myth
The Beauty Myth
Autor: Naomi Wolf
Wydawca: Vintage
wysyłka: 48h
The bestselling classic that redefined our view of the relationship between beauty and female identity Every day, women around the world are confronted with a dilemma – how to look. In a society embroiled in a cult of female beauty and youthfulness, pressure on women to conform physically is constant and all-pervading. In this iconic, gripping and frank exposé, Naomi Wolf exposes the tyranny of the beauty myth through the ages and its oppressive function today, in the home and at work, in literature and the media, in relationships between men and women, between women and women. With pertinent and intelligent examples, she confronts the beauty industry and its advertising and uncovers the reasons why women are consumed by this destructive obsession.

Okładka książki The Rings Of Saturn
What begins as the record of a journey on foot through coastal East Anglia becomes the great, constellated story of people and cultures past and present: of Chateaubriand, Thomas Browne, Swinburne and Conrad, of fishing fleets, skulls and silkworms. A rich meditation on the past via a melancholy trip along the Suffolk coast, The Rings of Saturn is an intricately patterned and haunting book on the transience of all things human.

Okładka książki Into the War
Into the War
Autor: Italo Calvino
Wydawca: Penguin Books
wysyłka: 48h
Set in Italy in the summer of 1940, this trio of stories explores the relationships between the different generations caught up in the war as well as Calvino's own experiences as a teenager. In the title story, 'Into the War', we are given an insight into what life was really like for those too young to be conscripted into Mussolini's army, while in 'The Avanguardisti in Menton', Calvino and his friends take a revealingly anti-climactic trip to the garrisoned French town of Menton, the sole Italian conquest of the early months of the conflict. The final story, 'UNPA Nights', is a touching, comic tale of friendship in a blackout, where the narrator's imagination wanders as he roams through the seedier parts of the darkened town instead of guarding the school buildings. Into the War is Calvino at his autobiographical best, combining brilliantly recollected memory with compelling wit and perfect prose.

Okładka książki Are You Experienced?
Are You Experienced?
Autor: Johnson Ken
Wydawca: Prestel
wysyłka: 48h
Looking at art through the lens of psychedelic experience and culture, New York Times critic Ken Johnson reveals an unexpected and illuminating dimension of art since the 1960s. Art changed in a big way in the 1960s; it was no longer something just to look at and appreciate for its aesthetic qualities. The traditional ideal of connoisseurship was out; art as consciousnessaltering experience was in. Boundaries between conventional media such as paintings and sculpture stretched and dissolved. Hierarchical distinctions between high and low culture became irrelevant. Weird new forms proliferated. Would art have developed as it did in the past fifty years, would it be the way it is now, if psychedelics and psychedelic culture had not been so popular? To answer that question, Ken Johnson, the veteran art critic of The New York Times, has examined a broad array of art of the past half century, from Robert Smithson’s Spiral Jetty to Pipilotti Rist’s recent swooningly trippy video installation at the Museum of Modern Art and Richard Serra’s warped, spiraling mazes ofinches-thick Corten steel, looking not just for obvious signs of psychedelic style but for an underlying psychedelic ethos animating the art. Extensively illustrated in color, Johnson’s pioneering study may change the way we see contemporary art.

Okładka książki Brewiarz miłości doświadczalnej
Człowieka od zwierzęcia odróżnia to, że pije, nie czując pragnienia, i uprawia miłość w każdym czasie. 27 kwietnia 1784 roku Beaumarchais wyjawił tę fizjologiczną prawdę osłupiałej publiczności w teatrze, chcąc jedynie błysnąć dowcipnym aforyzmem w swym olśniewającym Weselu Figara. Do dziś nic się nie zmieniło i nie zmieni się dopóty, dopóki świat będzie istniał. „Podejmuje on wieczny temat, który dotyka samych trzewi ludzkości. Przedstawiony tak, jak go pojmuje doktor Jules Guyot, który z niezwykłą zręcznością pióra jasno ukazał doświadczalną stronę miło­ści, stanowi prawdziwy podręcznik małżeński".

Okładka książki Sztuka pierdzenia
Doprawdy wstyd, Czytelniku, że od kiedy pierdzieć począłeś, nie wiesz nawet, jak to robisz i jak to robić powinieneś. Sprawa ta, analizowana przeze mnie rzetelnie, dotąd zaniedbana była wielce nie dlatego, że niegodna uwagi, ale z powodów innych: zdawało się bowiem, iż żadnej metodzie nie podlega, i nowych w tej materii nie poczyniono odkryć. To błąd. Znacznie bardziej, niż zwykliśmy mniemać, potrzebna jest wiedza, po co pierdzimy. Pryncypia owej sztuki przedkładam przeto zainteresowanym. Sztuka pierdzenia ukazała się we Francji w roku 1751. Szybko zdobyła ogromną popularność, a jej najbardziej rubaszne ustępy czytano na salonach po spożyciu ostatniego dania wystawnej kolacji. Lektura dzieła, wzbudziwszy śmiech, ułatwiała trawienie. Dziś jego przenikliwość docenią nie tylko amatorzy owej pożytecznej sztuki, ale i wszyscy, którzy lubią podróżować po krainie absurdu.

Okładka książki The Myth of Sisyphus Modern Cl
The summation of the existentialist philosophy threaded throughout all his writing, Albert Camus' The Myth of Sisyphus is translated by Justin O'Brien with an introduction by James Wood in Penguin Classics. In this profound and moving philosophical statement, Camus poses the fundamental question: is life worth living? If human existence holds no significance, what can keep us from suicide? As Camus argues, if there is no God to give meaning to our lives, humans must take on that purpose themselves. This is our 'absurd' task, like Sisyphus forever rolling his rock up a hill, as the inevitability of death constantly overshadows us. Written during the bleakest days of the Second World War, The Myth of Sisyphus (Le Mythe de Sisyphe) argues for an acceptance of reality that encompasses revolt, passion and, above all, liberty. This volume contains several other essays, including lyrical evocations of the sunlit cities of Algiers and Oran, the settings of his great novels The Outsider and The Plague.

Okładka książki White
White
Wydawca: Picador
wysyłka: 48h
Bret Easton Ellis is most famous for his era-defining novel American Psycho and its terrifying anti-hero, Patrick Bateman. With that book, and many times since, Ellis proved himself to be one of the world’s most fearless and clear-sighted observers of society – the glittering surface and the darkness beneath. In White, his first work of non-fiction, Ellis offers a wide-ranging exploration of what the hell is going on right now. He tells personal stories from his own life. He writes with razor-sharp precision about the music, movies, books and TV he loves and hates. He examines the ways our culture, politics and relationships have changed over the last four decades. He talks about social media, Hollywood celebrities and Donald Trump. Ellis considers conflicting positions without flinching and adheres to no status quo. His forthright views are powered by a fervent belief in artistic freedom and freedom of speech. Candid, funny, entertaining and blisteringly honest, he offers opinions that are impossible to ignore and certain to provoke. What he values above all is the truth. ‘The culture at large seemed to encourage discourse,’ he writes, ‘but what it really wanted to do was shut down the individual.’ Bret Easton Ellis will not be shut down.

Yes, I said; of course, I’d love to.’ Ken Follett In aid of the crucial restoration work to restore Paris’s great cathedral, Notre-Dame: A Short History of the Meaning of Cathedrals is a moving, short piece of non-fiction celebrating the stunning history of this beloved building, from Ken Follett, author of the multi-million copy selling Kingsbridge series.

Okładka książki Świat według Clarksona. Jeśli móglbym dokończyć...
W listopadzie 2016 roku pewien prostolinijny prezenter popularnego programu telewizyjnego został najpotężniejszym człowiekiem na świecie. Niestety, nie był to Jeremy Clarkson, ale i tak wszyscy przecieraliśmy oczy ze zdumienia. Odkąd Jeremy po raz ostatni podzielił się z czytelnikami swoim przemyśleniami i spostrzeżeniami, sprawy na świecie przybrały zdecydowanie dziwny obrót. Ale któż lepiej niż JC potrafiłby pomóc nam odnaleźć się w tym bałaganie? Poszukując sensu w otaczającym nas gąszczu absurdów, Jeremy znalazł odpowiedzi na kilka ważnych pytań. Na przykład: • Dlaczego weganizm prowadzi do niepełnosprawności • Dlaczego warto wywiercić wielką dziurę w Blackpool • Na czym polega największy problem z medytacją • Co sprawia, że Twitter przypomina licealną świetlicę • Dlaczego nie ma nic dziwnego w tym, że Tom Cruise modli się do jaszczurek Jeremy Clarkson może być równie mocno jak my zaskoczony, zaniepokojony, poirytowany i zakłopotany tym, co dzieje się obecnie wokół nas, ale dobrze jest mieć świadomość, że kiedy świat pogrąża się w szaleństwie, jest ktoś, kto pokaże nam, że można się z tego wszystkiego śmiać.

Think Write Speak
Wydawca: Penguin Books
wysyłka: 48h
The last major collection of Nabokov's published material, Think, Write, Speak brings together a treasure trove of previously uncollected texts from across the author's extraordinary career. Each phase of his wandering life is included, from a precocious essay written while still at Cambridge in 1921, through his fame in the aftermath of the publication of Lolita to the final, fascinating interviews given shortly before his death in 1977. Introduced and edited by his biographer Brian Boyd, this is an essential work for anyone who has been drawn into Nabokov's literary orbit. Here he is at his most inspirational, curious, playful, misleading and caustic. The seriousness of his aesthetic credo, his passion for great writing and his mix of delight and dismay at his own, sudden global fame in the 1950s are all brilliantly delineated.

Don't Be Evil
Autor: Foroohar Rana
Wydawca: Allen Lane

An award-winning Financial Times columnist exposes the threat that Big Tech poses to our democracies, our economies and ourselves Today Google and Facebook receive 90% of the world's news ad-spending. Amazon takes half of all ecommerce in the US. Google and Apple operating systems run on all but 1% of cell phones globally. And 80% of corporate wealth is now held by 10% of companies - not the GEs and Toyotas of this world, but the digital titans. How did we get here? How did the tech industry get to dominate our world so completely? How did once-idealistic and innovative companies come to manipulate elections, violate our privacy, and pose a threat to the fabric of our democracy? In Don't Be Evil, Financial Times global business columnist Rana Foroohar documents how Big Tech lost its soul - and became the new Wall Street. Through her skilled reporting and unparalleled access - won through nearly 30 years covering business and technology - she shows the true extent to which the 'Faang's (Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google) crush or absorb any potential competitors, hijack our personal data and mental space and offshore their exorbitant profits. What's more, she reveals how these threats to our democracies, our livelihoods and our minds are all intertwined. Yet Foroohar also lays out a plan for how we can resist, creating a framework that fosters innovation while also protecting us from the dark side of digital technology.
