Je m'agenouille et je palpe la terre battue. Un contact terrifiant me court-circuite les centres nerveux. Je viens de rencontrer une main. Elle est froide. Je dompte ma répulsion et je palpe encore. Après la main vient le poignet, puis l'avant-bras, puis le bras, l'épaule… Un cadavre ! Il y a un cadavre dans la cave à vin.

¿Puede el amor sobrevivir a una desgarradora pérdida?

Browerville, Minnesota, 1950: la vida es perfecta para Eddie Olczak. Hombre de fe inquebrantable, Eddie está sumamente satisfecho con la vida que lleva. Adora a su esposa, Krystyna, a sus hijas, Anne y Lucy, y su trabajo como manitas para St. Joseph, la iglesia católica que es la piedra angular de la sociedad de Browerville. Pero cuando un trágico accidente se lleva la vida de Krystyna, Eddie está seguro de que su corazón no se repondrá jamás. El amor que ella prodigaba a su familia, el modo en que cepillaba el pelo de las niñas, en que recibía a Eddie al final de la jornada… todos esos preciosos dones se han perdido para siempre.

La ciudad forma una piña para darle su apoyo, pero hay un miembro de la comunidad que es incapaz de expresar lo que la pérdida de Krystyna ha supuesto para ella. La hermana Regina, profesora de las niñas en St. Joseph, siempre ha sentido una afinidad especial con los Olczak. Pero sus votos le impiden acercarse demasiado a ellos… incluso en un momento tan trágico.

La hermana Regina siempre ha intentado reafirmar su compromiso cuando las estrictas reglas de la orden la desesperan. Pero con el tiempo, en tanto que Eddie y ella se van conociendo mejor, y encuentran una conexión que va más allá del amor común por Krystyna y las niñas, se enfrenta a un difícil desafío. Y ambos deben reunir el valor para mirar dentro de su corazón y tomar sus propias decisiones.

обложка книги Y en avait dans les pâtes Y en avait dans les pâtes

C'est l'histoire d'un type, au restaurant, qui fait une scène d'enfer au maître d'hôtel parce qu'il vient de trouver un poil dans ses nouilles. L'après-midi de ce même jour, le maître d'hôtel va dans un clandé et aperçoit son client en train de faire minette à une pensionnaire. Il prend le gars à partie :

— C'était pas la peine de crier si fort pour un poil dans les nouilles quand on fait ce que vous faites ! lui dit-il.

Le client s'interrompt et riposte :

— Je crierais plus fort encore si je trouvais une nouille dans ces poils !


Le grand Maurice Chevalier passait pour être plutôt ladre. Un soir qu'il donnait un dîner chez lui, le maître d'hôtel lui demanda à voix haute et intelligible s'il devait passer les fromages.

Et Maurice Chevalier s'écria :

— Quelle idée ! Y en avait dans les pâtes !


Un jour, dans un restaurant, à l'étranger, j'ai trouvé un gros morceau de phare de voiture dans mon assiette de spaguettis, ce qui m'a rendu perplexe. Je n'ai rien dit, mais je ne l'ai pas mangé.


On ne peut imaginer tout ce qu'il y a, parfois, dans les pâtes !

обложка книги Y las montañas hablaron Y las montañas hablaron

La decisión de una humilde familia campesina de dar una hija en adopción a un matrimonio adinerado es el fundamento sobre el que Khaled Hosseini —autor de las inolvidables Cometas en el cielo y Mil soles espléndidos— ha tejido este formidable tapiz en el que se entrelazan los destinos de varias generaciones y se exploran las infinitas formas en que el amor, el valor, la traición y el sacrificio desempeñan un papel determinante en las vidas de las personas. La historia arranca en una remota y desolada aldea de Afganistán, donde Sabur y su segunda mujer se enfrentan en condiciones precarias a la llegada de otro invierno implacable. Abdulá, el hijo mayor, de diez años, ha cuidado de su hermana Pari desde que era pequeña, y ahora ambos escuchan cautivados la triste historia que les relata su padre antes de acostarlos, la víspera de iniciar un largo viaje que los conducirá hasta Kabul. Allí, en las bulliciosas calles de la capital, dará comienzo este fascinante itinerario que guiará al lector desde el otoño de 1952 hasta el presente, de Kabul a París, desde la isla griega de Tinos hasta San Francisco.

Seis años después de la publicación de su anterior novela y superados los 38 millones de ejemplares vendidos en todo el mundo, Khaled Hosseini vuelve a demostrar su inmenso talento para narrar historias con valor universal y su inagotable capacidad para crear personajes que nos resultan asombrosamente cercanos y auténticos.

«Él me acusa de tener sentimientos. Me dice que soy débil y frágil, sutil, febril, casi pueril. Nada viril para mi profesión, y tendría que serlo, que adónde va una mujer policía tan sentimental como a punto de romperse.»

Clara Deza es contradictoria y deslenguada, Clara Deza es agente de la autoridad, esposa y compañera, tan sensible por dentro como dura por fuera. Inmersa en un mundo hostil marcado por el enfrentamiento entre dos esferas contrapuestas: la laboral, poblada por policías que oscilan entre la incomprensión o la superprotección, yonquis que inspiran su ternura y superiores que no la respetan, y la personal, que gira en torno a un matrimonio que es a la vez refugio y casa de fieras, remanso de paz y estanque de tormentas.

Clara Deza aprenderá a demostrar pronto su faceta más combativa y mordaz cuando, tras recibir un desconcertante mensaje de su mejor confidente, descubre que uno de los mafiosos más escurridizos planea su gran golpe. Movida por el pálpito de saber que se encuentra ante su caso más importante, comienza a escarbar en las cloacas de una sociedad brillante en apariencia y tremendamente cruel en realidad.

Con una poderosa voz narrativa cargada de ironía, Mercedes Castro irrumpe en el panorama literario con la historia de una mujer que se mueve entre claros y oscuros, una protagonista tan de carne y hueso que traspasa las páginas de esta novela con su humor agridulce, su contundente fragilidad y un inconformismo esencial que va más allá de cualquier punto y final.

обложка книги Yashimoto's Last Dive Yashimoto's Last Dive

Togo Tashimoto, captain of the Japanese submarine I-357 and a ruthless disciplinarian steeped in the samurai tradition; and John Barratt, captain of HMS Restless, haunted by his wife's death while a prisoner of the Japanese in Changi Jail; were two very different men whose destinies were linked in the deadly game of hide and seek they were to play out among the islands and atolls of the Mozambique coast.

Homeward bound after a disappointing patrol in the Indian Ocean, Yashimoto encounters an unescorted American freighter making for Cape Delgado. To conserve his remaining torpedoes he decides to attack by gunfire. In the night action which follows he sinks the Fort Nebraska, but not before her stern gun has scored a lucky hit. Unable to dive, Yashimoto makes for the coast to carry out repairs and to hide from the British air and surface forces he expects on the scene at dawn.

HMS Restless, returning to her base, picks up Brad Corrigan, the only member of the freighter's crew to survive the massacre that followed her sinking. On the strength of the American's report, Barratt sets out in pursuit of the submarine. Stretching over four days, the destroyer's relentless search has the added flavor of a vendetta, since Barratt and Corrigan have personal scores to settle with the Japanese. Skillfully, hour by hour, the tension is built up until at last hunter and hunted meet in a tremendous climax. Never have Antony Trew's mastery of naval detail and powers as a storyteller been more successfully blended than in this novel of thrilling authority.

обложка книги Życie jest gdzie indziej Życie jest gdzie indziej

Kolejna książka jednego z najwybitniejszych twórców europejskich XX wieku powstała jeszcze w Czechach (1969-1970), zanim jako emigrant polityczny Kundera osiadł we Francji. W tym kraju za Życie jest gdzie indziej pisarz otrzymał w 1973 roku prestiżową Prix Médicis Étranger. Powieść jest swoistym "portretem artysty w czasach młodości ", na co wskazuje także pierwotny tytuł książki – "Wiek liryczny " – w języku Kundery oznaczający "młodość ". Autor opowiada przypadki poety Jaromila, którego życiowe wybory naznaczone są dominującą osobowością matki, towarzyszącej mu – w przenośni – od łoża miłości aż po łoże śmierci – w znaczeniu dosłownym. Kundera zdaje się mówić, że poeci liryczni pochodzą z domów, w których rządzą kobiety. Kreśląc sylwetkę Jaromila, momentami wzruszająco śmiesznego, a przy tym niesłychanie naiwnego, pisarz z typową ironią i delikatnością dotyka tak kluczowych dla całej swojej twórczości pojęć, jak dzieciństwo, macierzyństwo, rewolucja czy poezja.

Grecka litera Pi stała się parasolem ochronnym dla głównego bohatera-miłośnika ogrodów zoologicznych i świetnego pływaka. Razem ze swoją rodziną mieszkał w Puttuczczeri, skąd jednak zamierzali przeprowadzić się do Kanady. Czekała ich długa podróż przez Ocean Spokojny, która niestety zakończyła się tragicznie.

Dramat jaki rozgrywał się na bezkresach wód stał w sprzeczności z piękną scenerią, jaka widoczna była z pokładu szalupy. 227 dni na Oceanie, mając za towarzysza jedynie tygrysa bengalskiego. Udało się przeżyć m.in. dzięki zapomnieniu o szybkim ratunku. Czas dla Pi nie istniał, o czym świadczy chociażby prowadzony przez niego dziennik, w którym nie ma dat ani żadnej numeracji. Tylko informacje praktyczne, pozwalające przetrwać w nowej sytuacji do której trzeba było się szybko dostosować. Jakże trafne okazało się powiedzenie potrzeba matką wynalazków.

обложка книги Year of the Unicorn Year of the Unicorn

In the days of the first spring flood in the Year of the Gryphon the Lords of High Hallack made their covenant with the Were Riders of the Waste. Those who came to speak with the lords wore the bodies of men but they were not of humankind. They were dour fighters...men—or creatures—of power who ranged the wilderness and were greatly feared. How many there were no man knew but that they had a force beyond human knowledge was certain. Shape-changers, warlocks, sorcerers...rumour had it they were all that and more.

Exiles from afar in space and time, who had opened doors on forbidden things and loosed that which could not be controlled, they wandered until the stars moved into new patterns and they might again seek the gate into their homeland and ask admittance.

Now, in the Year of the Unicorn, they took brides from among men, according to the bargain, and rode eastwards. And among them rode Gillan, the waif, the nameless, who seemed to see beyond the shape of things that were.

обложка книги Yellow Dog Yellow Dog

When 'dream husband' Xan Meo is vengefully assaulted in the garden of a London pub, he suffers head-injury, and personality-change. Like a spiritual convert, the familial paragon becomes an anti-husband, an anti-father. He submits to an alien moral system — one among many to be found in these pages.

We are introduced to the inverted worlds of the 'yellow' journalist, Clint Smoker; the high priest of hardmen, Joseph Andrews; the porno tycoon, Cora Susan; and Royce Traynor, the corpse in the hold of the stricken airliner, apparently determined, even in death, to bring down the plane that carries his spouse. Meanwhile, we explore the entanglements of Henry England: his incapacitated wife, Pamela; his Chinese mistress, He Zizhen; his fifteen-year-old daughter, Victoria, the victim of a filmed 'intrusion' which rivets the world — because she is the future Queen of England, and her father, Henry IX, is its King.

The Posleen are coming and the models all say the same thing: Without the Panama Canal, the US is doomed to starvation and defeat. Despite being overstretched preparing to defend the US, the military sends everything it has left: A handful of advanced Armored Combat Suits, rejuvenated veterans from the many decades that Panama was a virtual colony and three antiquated warships. Other than that, the Panamanians are on their own. Replete with detailed imagery of the landscape, characters and politics that have made the jungle-infested peninsula a Shangri-La for so many over the years, Yellow Eyes is a hard-hitting look at facing a swarming alien horde with not much more than wits and guts. Fortunately, the Panamanians, and the many veterans that think of it as a second home, have plenty of both.

In a café by the seaside, two friends, Christy Andrapper and Jesintha, witness the murder of a young man. When Christy discovers that it was Senthil, his classmate from school, who had been shot, he tries to follow up on the investigation. But the police deny such a crime ever took place. The hospital to which Senthil’s body was delivered insists he died of a heart attack.

Christy begins to suspect a conspiracy. Was he caught in the middle of a giant cover-up? How was his powerful family connected with it? As the mystery deepens, the story moves back and forth between the archipelago of Diego Garcia and peninsular India, delving into the very heart of early Christianity in India.

After the success and acclaim of Goat Days, Benyamin crafts a clever and absorbing crime-novel-within-a-novel that is dazzlingly inventive and hugely enjoyable.

обложка книги Yeltsin Yeltsin

Even after his death in April 2007, Boris Yeltsin remains the most controversial figure in recent Russian history. Although Mikhail Gorbachev presided over the decline of the Communist party and the withdrawal of Soviet control over eastern Europe, it was Yeltsin—Russia’s first elected president—who buried the Soviet Union itself. Upon taking office, Yeltsin quickly embarked on a sweeping makeover of newly democratic Russia, beginning with a program of excruciatingly painful market reforms that earned him wide acclaim in the West and deep recrimination from many Russian citizens.

In this, the first biography of Yeltsin’s entire life, Soviet scholar Timothy Colton traces Yeltsin’s development from a peasant boy in the Urals to a Communist party apparatchik, and then ultimately to a nemesis of the Soviet order. Based on unprecedented interviews with Yeltsin himself as well as scores of other Soviet officials, journalists, and businessmen, Colton explains how and why Yeltsin broke with single-party rule and launched his drive to replace it with democracy.

Yeltsin’s colossal attempt to bring democracy to Russia remains one of the great, unfinished stories of our time. As anti-Western policies and rhetoric resurface in Putin’s increasingly bellicose Russia, Yeltsin offers essential insights into the past, present, and future of this vast and troubled nation.

A través del largo tiempo dramático, Yerma lucha desesperadamente con su verdad, que cada vez se vuelve más conflictiva y no ceja en ello hasta consumarla. La resolución final -la muerte del marido- es la última defensa de su sueño imposible y una afirmación rotunda de su destino trágico ante la ciega fatalidad.

From the author of the Man Booker Prize— winning literary sensation and long-time Globe and Mail bestseller The Gathering, comes a dazzling, seductive new collection of stories.

“Anne Enright’s style is as sharp and brilliant as Joan Didion’s; the scope of her understanding is as wide as Alice Munro’s;. . her vision of Ireland is as brave and original as Edna O’Brien’s.” — Colm Tóibín

A rich collection of sharp, vivid stories of loss and yearning, of the ordinary defeats and unexpected delights that grow out of the bonds between husbands and wives, mothers and children, and intimate strangers.

Bringing together in a single elegant edition new stories as well as a selection of stories never before published in Canada (from her UK published The Portable Virgin, 1991), Yesterday’s Weather exhibits the unsettling, carefully drawn reality, the subversive wit, and the awkward tenderness that mark Anne Enright as one of the most thrillingly gifted writers of our time.

Ильфа и Е. Петрова.

Статус заимствований и цитат в двух книгах соавторов — совершенно особый: ими прошита вся повествовательная ткань; это специальный, осознанно примененный прием. Оба романа создавались в то время, когда произведения-предшественники были на слуху, "просвечивали" сквозь текст Ильфа и Петрова. Для сегодняшнего читателя романы превратились в кроссворды. Ю. К. Щеглов блестяще и увлекательно их разгадывает, возвращая книгам читательский успех.

Это третье, значительно расширенное, издание известного труда одного из крупнейших русских филологов нашего времени.

Yo el Supremo

Yo el Supremo Dictador de la República: Ordeno que al acaecer mi muerte mi cadáver sea decapitado, la cabeza puesta en una pica por tres días en la Plaza de la República donde se convocará al pueblo al son de las campanas echadas al vuelo. Todos mis servidores civiles y militares sufrirán pena de horca. Sus cadáveres serán enterrados en potreros de extramuros sin cruz ni marca que memore sus nombres. Esa inscripción garabateada sorprende una mañana a los secuaces del dictador, que corren prestos a eliminarla de la vida de los aterrados súbditos del patriarca. Así arranca una de las grandes novela de la literatura en castellano de este siglo: Yo el Supremo, de Augusto Roa Bastos, Premio Cervantes 1989. La obra no es sólo un extraordinario ejercicio de gran profundidad narrativa sino también un testimonio escalofriante sobre uno de los peores males contemporáneos: la dictadura. El déspota solitario que reina sobre Paraguay es, en la obra de Roa, el argumento para describir una figura despiadada que es asimismo metáfora de la biografía de América Latina.

обложка книги Yonder: Essays Yonder: Essays

Sparkling essays on a variety of subjects-literature, art, popular culture, autobiography-by a renowned young American novelist.

In her brilliant and daring novels The Blindfold and The Enchantment of Lily Dahl, Siri Hustvedt has won critical acclaim and a rapidly expanding international audience. But she is also a wide-ranging essayist and critic, frequently reexamining in her fascinating nonfiction many of the central leitmotifs of her fiction.

The six pieces in Yonder, Hustvedt's first book of essays, are all meditations on the complex relationship between art and the world. They include a personal essay on memory and place, which investigates the images we retain from our lives, the lives of others in the world, and the lives of characters in books. In "Vermeer's Annunciation," Hustvedt gives an entirely original interpretation of the Vermeer painting Woman with a Pearl Necklace. In "Ghosts at the Table," she examines the essence of still life as a genre in painting from Cotan and Chardin to Philip Guston. Other essays include a profound piece about Dickens, a reassessment of The Great Gatsby, and a witty and provocative assault on contemporary pieties entitled "A Plea for Eros."

Barry Hannah has been acclaimed by Larry McMurtry as "the best fiction writer to appear in the South since Flannery O'Connor." In his new novel, the first since 1991's Never Die, he again displays the master craftsmanship and wickedly brilliant storytelling that have earned him a deserved reputation as a modern master. In Yonder Stands Your Orphan, denizens of a lake community near Vicksburg are beset by madness, murder, and sin in the form of one Man Mortimer, a creature of the casinos who resembles dead country singer Conway Twitty. A killer who has turned mean and sick, he will visit upon this town a wreckage of biblical proportions. The young sheriff is confounded by Mortimer and distracted by his passion for a lovely seventy-two-year-old widow. Only Max Raymond, a weak Christian saxophonist, stands between Mortimer and his further depredations. But who will die, who will burn? Yonder Stands Your Orphan is a tour de force that confirms Barry Hannah's reputation — as William Styron wrote in Salon — "an original, and one of the most consistently exciting writers of the post-Faulkner generation."

They were marked for death.

The last words Jamie Ball hears from his fiancée, Logan Somerville, are in a terrified mobile phone call. She has just driven into the underground car park beneath the block of flats where they live in Brighton. Then she screams and the phone goes dead. The police are on the scene within minutes, but Logan has vanished, leaving behind her neatly parked car and mobile phone.

That same afternoon, workmen digging up a park in another part of the city, unearth the remains of a woman in her early twenties, who has been dead for thirty years.

At first, to Roy Grace and his team, these two events seem totally unconnected. But then another young woman in Brighton goes missing — and yet another body from the past surfaces.

Meanwhile, an eminent London psychiatrist meets with a man who claims to know information about Logan. And Roy Grace has the chilling realization that this information holds the key to both the past and present crimes... Does Brighton have its first serial killer in over eighty years?

In “Animals,” an up-and-coming starlet harbors a complicated attraction toward her abusive director. In “Frank Advice for Fat Women,” an ethically compromised psychiatrist is drawn into the middle of a dysfunctional mother-daughter relationship. And in “The Imp,” a supernatural possession ruins a man’s relationship with his pregnant wife.

Barrodale’s protagonists drink too much, say the wrong things, want the wrong people. They’re hounded by longings (and sometimes ghosts) to the point where they are forced to confront the illusions they cling to. They’re brought to life in stories that don’t behave as you expect stories to behave. Barrodale’s startlingly funny and original fictions get under your skin and make you reconsider the fragile compromises that underpin our daily lives.

Sarah Zuckerman and Jennifer Jones are best friends in an upscale part of Washington, D.C., in the politically charged 1980s.  Sarah is the shy, wary product of an unhappy home: her father abandoned the family to return to his native England; her agoraphobic mother is obsessed with fears of nuclear war.  Jenny is an all-American girl who has seemingly perfect parents.  With Cold War rhetoric reaching a fever pitch in 1982, the ten-year-old girls write letters to Soviet premier Yuri Andropov asking for peace.  But only Jenny's letter receives a response, and Sarah is left behind when her friend accepts the Kremlin's invitation to visit the USSR and becomes an international media sensation.  The girls' icy relationship still hasn't thawed when Jenny and her parents die tragically in a plane crash in 1985.

Ten years later, Sarah is about to graduate from college when she receives a mysterious letter from Moscow suggesting that Jenny's death might have been a hoax.  She sets off to the former Soviet Union in search of the truth, but the more she delves into her personal Cold War history, the harder it is to separate facts from propaganda.

Zoë Wicomb's complex and deeply evocative fiction is among the most distinguished recent works of South African women's literature. It is also among the only works of fiction to explore the experience of "Coloured" citizens in apartheid-era South Africa, whose mixed heritage traps them, as Bharati Mukherjee wrote in the New York Times, "in the racial crucible of their country."Wicomb deserves a wide American audience, on a part with Nadine Gordimer and J.M.Coetzee." — Wall St. Journal

Wicomb is a gifted writer, and her compressed narratives work like brilliant splinters in the mind, suggesting a rich rhythm and shape."-Seattle Times

"[Wicomb's] prose is vigorous, textured, lyrical. [She] is a sophisticated storyteller who combines the open-endedness of contemporary fiction with the force of autobiography and the simplicity of family stories."-Bharati Mukherjee, New York Times Book Review

An unnerving and riveting psychological drama that challenges our notions of how we view others and how we construct our own sense of self.

Mia is an elementary schoolteacher in Denmark, while her husband, Frederik, is the talented, highly respected headmaster of a local private school. During a vacation in Spain, Frederik has an accident and his visit to the hospital reveals a brain tumor that is gradually altering his personality, confirming Mia's suspicions that her husband is no longer the man he used to be. Now she must protect herself and their teenage son, Niklas, from the strange, blunted being who lives in her husband's body — and with whom she must share her home, her son, and her bed.

When it emerges that one year ago Frederik had defrauded his school of millions of crowns, the consequences of his condition envelope the entire community. Frederick's apparent lack of concern doesn't help, and longstanding friendships with colleagues are thrown by the wayside. Increasingly isolated, Mia faces more tough questions. Had his illness already changed him back then when he still seemed so happy? What are the legal ramifications?

In her support group for spouses of people with brain injuries, Mia meets a defense attorney named Bernhard. Together they help prepare for Frederik's court case by immersing themselves in the latest brain research and in classic philosophical questions of free will, while simultaneously navigating the uncertain waters of their growing mutual infatuation. Jungersen's clear, spare prose and ceaseless plot twists will keep readers hooked until the last page.
