обложка книги Suzanna's Surrender Suzanna's Surrender

Through the past darkly...

Suzanna Calhoun and her sisters simply HAD to find the priceless emeralds hidden somewhere in their ancestral home. The jewels were the key to the deadly mystery that had threatened them for so long. And for Suzanna they were something more - her link to a man whose past was tangled with hers in ways she was only beginning to understand.

Holt Bradford had loved Suzanna for more years than he cared to remember, loved the laughing girl she'd been and the gentle, fragile woman she'd become. He'd never once told her what was in his heart, but now he had no choice...He had to protect her from the shadows swirling around her, and he had to make her his at last....

The FBI and local law enforcement are attempting a mutually beneficial crime stopping partnership. Rookie Agent Chris Tarpington and Detective Vin Pilk team up to prototype the new alliance.

HEATHER WELLS ROCKS!

Or, at least, she did. That was before she left the pop-idol life behind after she gained a dress size or two—and lost a boyfriend, a recording contract, and her life savings (when Mom took the money and ran off to Argentina). Now that the glamour and glory days of endless mall appearances are in the past, Heather's perfectly happy with her new size 12 shape (the average for the American woman!) and her new job as an assistant dorm director at one of New York's top colleges. That is, until the dead body of a female student from Heather's residence hall is discovered at the bottom of an elevator shaft.


The cops and the college president are ready to chalk the death off as an accident, the result of reckless youthful mischief. But Heather knows teenage girls… and girls do not elevator surf. Yet no one wants to listen—not the police, her colleagues, or the P.I. who owns the brownstone where she lives—even when more students start turning up dead in equally ordinary and subtly sinister ways. So Heather makes the decision to take on yet another new career: as spunky girl detective!


But her new job comes with few benefits, no cheering crowds, and lots of liabilities, some of them potentially fatal. And nothing ticks off a killer more than a portly ex-pop star who's sticking her nose where it doesn't belong.

Former pop star Heather Wells has settled nicely into her new life as assistant dorm director at New York College—a career that does not require her to drape her size 12 body in embarrassingly skimpy outfits. She can even cope (sort of) with her rocker ex-boyfriend's upcoming nuptials, which the press has dubbed The Celebrity Wedding of the Decade. But she's definitely having a hard time dealing with the situation in the dormitory kitchen—where a cheerleader has lost her head on the first day of the semester. (Actually, her head is accounted for—it's her torso that's AWOL.)

Surrounded by hysterical students—with her ex-con father on her doorstep and her ex-love bombarding her with unwanted phone calls—Heather welcomes the opportunity to play detective… again. If it gets her mind off her personal problems—and teams her up again with the gorgeous P.I. who owns the brownstone where she lives—it's all good. But the murder trail is leading the average-sized amateur investigator into a shadowy world. And if she doesn't watch her step, Heather will soon be singing her swan song!

„Sto pociągnięć szczotką przed snem” napisała i opublikowała, mając 17 lat.

Melissa Panarello, autorka najgłośniejszego włoskiego debiutu ostatnich lat, została ochrzczona „sycylijską Lolitą”. Książka ukazała się pod niby-pseudonimem Melissa P., ale autorka dość szybko odsłoniła swą twarz i stała się postacią publiczną. Jej pamiętnik to historia nieokiełznanego seksu, cynicznego oddawania się wszystkim napotkanym mężczyznom – kolegom, korepetytorowi, znajomym z Internetu i przypadkowym nieznajomym. To historia narcyzmu, który urasta do gigantycznych rozmiarów, historia poznawania miłości cielesnej we wszystkich możliwych odmianach i konfiguracjach, zatracenia się w seksie bez prawdziwej miłości i bez przyjemności, w oczekiwaniu na głębokie uczucia, na mężczyznę, który potrafiłby dostrzec w kobiecie coś więcej niż samo ciało.

Hardened cop Sam O'Neill knew a meddlesome woman when he saw one. He'd saved cocktail waitress Angie Rivers during a bank holdup, but he couldn't get her pretty face or the feel of her silky skin out of his head.

Angie was the only one who could identify the leader of a brutal identity-theft ring. But she was done feeling helpless and vulnerable and was ready to take things into her own hands, despite the tall, dark detective's passionate demands to stay out of trouble-and out of his heart!

"Shalvis writes with humor, heart, and sizzling heat!" – Carly Phillips

Maddie Moore's whole life needs a makeover.

In one fell swoop, Maddie loses her boyfriend (her decision) and her job (so not her decision). But rather than drowning her sorrows in bags of potato chips, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim the inheritance left by her free-spirited mother-a ramshackle inn nestled in the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington.

Starting over won't be easy. Yet Maddie sees the potential for a new home and a new career-if only she can convince her two half-sisters to join her in the adventure. But convincing Tara and Chloe will be difficult because the inn needs a big makeover too.

The contractor Maddie hires is a tall, dark-haired hottie whose eyes-and mouth-are making it hard for her to remember that she's sworn off men. Even harder will be Maddie's struggles to overcome the past, though she's about to discover that there's no better place to call home than Lucky Harbor.

But running Sky High Air – a charter airline catering to the rich and famous – is a dream come true, in-flight specials included. Like kissing his client's beautiful, brainy daughter in a coat closet. But before Shayne can say "Fasten Your Seatbelts," Dani claims to witness a murder, gets stalked in her own apartment, and as added bonus, gets them both shot at by a mystery sniper. Normally Shayne would be running from the obviously crazy woman, and yet he finds himself trying to help her, leaving him to doubt his own sanity…There's a reason Dani never attends her mother's high society parties. The fake people, the shallow conversation – and the fact that she doesn't fit in. She's a zoologist, not a starlet, and happy about it, even if she wishes men like ruggedly handsome Shayne Mahoney would spare her a second glance. Of course, dodging bullets isn't exactly what she'd call the perfect follow-up to their heated kiss, but Shayne makes it clear she can depend on him. All she has to do is hold on tight to his delicious hard body until the ride is over…

Sir Roberto Rannaldini, the most successful but detested conductor in the world, had two ambitions: to seduce his ravishing nineteen-year-old stepdaughter, Tabitha Campbell-Black, and to put his mark on musical history by making the definitive film of Verdi’s darkest opera, Don Carlos.

“This expensive, glossy world is where I’ve been headed all along. Limos and flowers; waxed eyebrows and designer clothes from Barneys. These are my people; this is where I'm meant to be.” — Becky Bloomwood

Universally beloved by readers, Sophie Kinsella’s national bestseller, Confessions of a Shopaholic, introduced the irrepressible one-woman shopping phenomenon, Becky Bloomwood. Now, in this hilarious follow-up, Becky and her credit cards are headed across the Atlantic….

With her shopping excesses (somewhat) in check and her career as a TV financial guru thriving, Becky’s biggest problem seems to be tearing her entrepreneur boyfriend, Luke, away from work for a romantic country weekend. And worse, figuring out how to “pack light.” But packing takes on a whole new meaning when Luke announces he's moving to New York for business — and he asks Becky to go with him!

Before you can say “Prada sample sale,” Becky has landed in the Big Apple, home of Park Avenue penthouses and luxury department stores. Surely it’s only a matter of time until she becomes an American TV celebrity, and she and Luke are the toast of Gotham society. Nothing can stand in their way, especially with Becky’s bills miles away in London.

But then an unexpected disaster threatens her career prospects, her relationship with Luke, and her available credit line! Shopaholic Takes Manhattan — but will she have to return it?

The perfect job, the perfect man — gorgeous Luke Brandon — and now… the perfect wedding. Yes, Luke has proposed and wedding bells are in sight. No excuses are needed to start the shopping trip of all time. And Becky’s parents are just assuming that the wedding will be at home — a marquee in the garden and Becky in her mum’s wedding dress, which she’s been saving specially for the occasion. But Luke’s mother has very different ideas — a huge affair in New York in a forest glade setting — or perhaps a Venetian Ball, or a fin de siecle extravagance? Now Becky’s getting confused. She doesn't want to say ‘no’ to anyone. The plans are going ahead, and soon it will be too late to turn back — from either wedding…

What is it about men anyway? Bad cars, bad jobs, even bad teeth – nothing convinces them that they can't snare a Size Two Babe with a D-cup chest. And after way too many internet dates with men named "luvstick" and "bigdaddy182," Lucy Rothschild should know.

LIES…

AND ONLINE DATING…

But Quinn's really an undercover cop hunting down a serial killer, and he sees Lucy as his top suspect. And while he could really go for this smart, sexy woman with the killer bod – if that's the only thing "killer" about her – he knows he needs to wine and dine her and discover the truth. Hey, he realizes the dating scene can be deadly – but this is ridiculous!

The gun trained on his chest left him with no choice… Turning Caitlyn in to the police was the right thing to do, the law-abiding thing. So why did it have to hurt so bad…and cost her so much?

Caitlyn Brown had never expected C. J. Starr to walk back into her life after all they'd endured. Never imagined she'd draw strength from his voice, the memory of his smile, the gentle touch of his hand. She could allow him to protect her from a danger she could no longer see, but she could never forget that he'd sworn to uphold the law, and – as long as there were innocent victims in need of her help – that she had vowed to break it.

Using a literary mystery rooted in Jane Austen's inspiration for Pride and Prejudice, Simonsen's debut novel brings resonance to the story of a love-torn American girl in post-WWII London. Young and eager for adventure, Maggie Joyce has left her jobless Pennsylvania coal-mining town for a typist position overseas. In London, she discovers two love interests as well as connections to the real-life Londoners rumored to have been the basis for Pride's Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy. Learning to disregard her prim and proper instincts, Maggie becomes closer to her very own version of Darcy, as well as the families of the original Darcy and Bennet, from whom she receives old diary entries and letters. Simonsen is clever and evenhanded, maintaining an unhurried pace in both the Austen adventure and Maggie's love life. Fans of historical fiction and Austen should savor this leisurely read.

Rachel White and Darcy Rhone have been best friends since childhood.

The one thing Rachel's always had over Darcy is the four-month age gap which meant she was first to being a teenager, first to drive, first to everything ...but now she's about to be first to thirty. And Darcy still has a charmed life. On the eve of her thirtieth birthday, Rachel is shocked to find herself questioning the status quo. How come Darcy gets a glamorous job at a PR firm and the perfect boyfriend, while Rachel grinds away at her despised job as an attorney and remains painfully single. Is it just luck?

Then an accidental fling complicates everything, and it's time for Rachel to make a few hard choices. And she's suddenly forced to learn that sometimes true love comes at a price ...


 Praise for Something Borrowed

    "Page-turning, heartbreakingly honest… Instead of falling back on easy chick-lit cliches, Giffin deftly depicts the hopeful hearts behind an unsympathetic situation."

    -Entertainment Weekly, Grade A

    "What kind of self-described 'nice girl' would sleep with her best friend's fiance? One who's seriously flawed, like this delightful debut novel's heroine, but also surprisingly winning and real."

    -Glamour

    "The characters are authentic and thus familiar… Captures what it's like to be thirty and single in the city, when your life pretty much revolves around friendships and love and their attendant complexities, rivalries, and hoped-for happily-ever-afters."

    -San Francisco Chronicle

    "A contemporary fairy tale… should spark a laugh or three in any gal who has served as handmaiden to Bridezilla."

    -Time Out New York

    "Both hilarious and thoughtfully written… You may never think of friendships-their duties, the oblique dances of power, and their give-and-take-quite the same way again."

    -The Seattle Times

    "One of the hottest books of the summer."

    -Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    "Sharply observed and beautifully etched."

    -Newark Star-Ledger

    "Sprightly… dead-on dialogue, real-life complexity, and genuine warmth."

    -Sarasota Herald- Tribune

    "Giffin's attention to detail and love for her central female characters gives Something Borrowed an endearing edge… goes beyond a selfish quest for love to take a semicritical look at female relationships."

    -Ripsaw Magazine

    "Emily Giffin brings a fresh new voice to women's fiction. Something Borrowed is a deftly written and convincing tale of a friendship gone comically-and at times poignantly-awry."

    -Meg Cabot, author of The Boy Next Door and The Princess Diaries

    "Something Borrowed is a winner; it has rare emotional depth. Rachel, a perpetual self-sacrificing nice girl, shocks herself by launching an affair with her evil best friend's fiance. This first savage blow for freedom sets off a chain reaction that will inspire pathologically nice girls everywhere to strike savage blows of their own. After reading Giffin's debut, I've decided never to be nice again. And I wasn't very nice to begin with. Now I am totally unencumbered. Whew."

    -Valerie Frankel, author of The Accidental Virgin and The Not-So-Perfect Man

    "Something Borrowed is a luxurious page-turner of a debut novel that marks the arrival of a tremendously bright, clever new voice in women's fiction. In quick-moving, captivating prose punctuated with dead-on dialogue, Giffin deftly captures complexity and humor of love, betrayal, career, and friendship for a city girl at the edge of thirty; you'll forget this is just a novel, and won't want to put it down."

    -Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez, author of The Dirty Girls' Social Club and Playing with Boys

    "I absolutely LOVED it and read it in two sittings because I could not put it down… Something Borrowed is a very well written-nice spare prose, which kept me pressing forward, agog to know what happened… Such a compelling, engrossing, and uplifting book."

    -Marian Keyes, author of Sushi for Beginners

From one of the most insightful chroniclers of family life working in fiction today comes a contemporary retelling of Jane Austen's classic novel of love, money, and two very different sisters.

John Dashwood promised his dying father that he would take care of his half sisters. But his wife, Fanny, has no desire to share their newly inherited estate with Belle Dashwood's daughters. When she descends upon Norland Park with her Romanian nanny and her mood boards, the three Dashwood girls - Elinor, Marianne, and Margaret - are suddenly faced with the cruelties of life without their father, their home, or their money.

As they come to terms with life without the status of their country house, the protection of the family name, or the comfort of an inheritance, Elinor and Marianne are confronted by the cold hard reality of a world where people's attitudes can change as drastically as their circumstances.

With her sparkling wit, Joanna Trollope casts a clever, satirical eye on the tales of Elinor and Marianne Dashwood. Reimagining Sense and Sensibility in a fresh, modern new light, she spins the novel's romance, bonnets, and betrothals into a wonderfully witty coming-of-age story about the stuff that really makes the world go around. For when it comes to money, some things never change...

обложка книги Sept jours pour une éternité… Sept jours pour une éternité…

Marc Levy, roi du best-seller depuis Et si c'était vrai…, est de retour avec Sept jours pour une éternité! San Francisco aujourd'hui. Lucas est le genre beau brun ténébreux un peu vénéneux sur les bords; Zofia est une belle plante ingénue à qui on donnerait le Bon Dieu sans confession. À qui s'en remettre pour que ces deux-là se rencontrent? Au destin, forcément, qui s'en charge aux alentours de la quarantième page. Tous deux sont envoyés du ciel: Lucas est le délégué sur terre du diable, ici nommé le Président, et Zofia l'émissaire de Monsieur, c'est-à-dire Dieu en personne. Lucas et Zofia vont jouer sur le plan singulier la partie que le diable et Dieu jouent à l'échelle universelle. Le diable a plus d'un tour dans son sac et Dieu sait tout, par définition. Le seul impondérable c'est ce fichu Destin qui pousse page après page Lucas dans les bras de Zofia et fait croître entre eux un attachement très spécifique aux humains: l'amour.

Sur fond de péripéties policières et d'une intrigue pas tout à fait nécessaire mettant en scène des promoteurs immobiliers véreux (l'auteur était architecte avant d'être romancier à succès, peut-être y a-t-il ici un règlement de comptes par la bande), Marc Levy signe une fable moderne, bien troussée, sur l'amour. Joueur, il multiplie à loisir les métaphores et les situations cocasses entre les anges et les démons. Les droits de Et si c'était vrai… ont été achetés par Spielberg pour une adaptation hollywoodienne. Nous ne serions pas étonné que Sept jours pour une éternité trouve également preneur!

The driver of the car, Penny Alistair, is killed, and her twin brother, Hobby Alistair, is left in a coma.

They killed me. They healed me. They changed me.

Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced theirexistence to the world-and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker... and this one decided the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.

Turns out my savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now I've traded sweating over my thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan "Lord o' the Manor" Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four hundred year old vampire, he has centuries' worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects my gratitude-and servitude. Right...

But my burgeoning powers (all of a sudden, I'm surprisingly handy with some serious weaponry), an inconvenient sunlight allergy, and Ethan's attitude are the least of my concerns. Someone's still out to get me. Is it the rogue vampire who bit me? A vamp from a rival House? An angry mob bearing torches?

My initiation into Chicago's nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war-and there will be blood...

As Sarah's nightwalker tendencies make her more dangerous, even to those she loves, she'll have to counteract that curse, unmask the increasingly intriguing Red Devil, and get a commitment from her man. But if that's what it takes to secure her happiness, Sarah is ready...even if it means embracing her inner vamp to do it.

Nell Calder era una mujer tímida y amable, una esposa que intentaba contentar a su ambicioso marido, una madre que amaba a su hijita con pasión. En suma, no era el tipo de mujer capaz de inspirar envidia, deseo ni pasiones asesinas.

¿Quién iba a querer hacerle daño?

Pero ocurrió una tragedia: una noche, en una exótica isla del mar Egeo durante una elegante reunión en la que su marido esperaba culminar su fulgurante carrera en el mundo de las finanzas, y que fue interrumpida por el estruendo de los disparos y la afilada hoja de un cuchillo.

El ataque fue despiadado. La niña murió, y ella quedó terriblemente desfigurada.

Sin embargo, la pesadilla convierte a Nell en una mujer distinta. La mejor cirugía le de un rostro de exquisita hermosura; la posterior rehabilitación, un cuerpo ágil y esbelto. Y Nicholas Tanek, el misterioso desconocido que suscita en ella temor y fascinación, le da una razón para seguir viviendo: la venganza.

Preparar su venganza s lo único que la mantiene viva. El asesino de su hija no puede seguir viviendo. Ella le dará muerte… con sus propias manos.

обложка книги Sensitiva Amorosa Sensitiva Amorosa

Novela motivo de escándalo en Suecia durante años, el malsano néctar de la planta Sensitiva amorosa impregna todas las páginas de este libro que toma su título de dicha especie vegetal imaginaria, y que con su desbordado lirismo, sus entonces audaces referencias sexuales, su elaborado e innovador lenguaje y su estética decadente provocó confusión e indignación entre sus contemporáneos.

¿Conduce la posesión física irremediablemente al desamor y al hastío? ¿Qué fuerzas inconscientes gobiernan nuestros impulsos eróticos y provocan su muerte? ¿Es que sólo en el silencio y la distancia puede florecer el amor? Los sucesivos episodios de esta atípica novela plantean con una extraordinaria penetración psicológica estas cuestiones que, si bien no escandalizan como hace un siglo, son aún capaces de causar un profundo impacto en el lector de hoy.

Con Sensitiva amorosa, Hansson, al igual que su compatriota y coetáneo Strindberg, rompió con las convenciones sociales y artísticas, creando una única y personal prosa poética que hoy es considerada una de las cumbres de la literatura sueca.

Coping with a devastating injury is hard enough for Belinda--Belle--Campbell. Forced separation from her destined mate while she heals is almost more than she can endure. Until she is strong enough to take up her duties as Luna of the Poconos Wolf Pack, however, the safest place for her is Halle. Now, after months of being alone, she is more than ready to be claimed. But is the pack ready for a Puma Luna?

Rick Lowell has waited long enough to bring Belle home where she belongs. He's aware of the danger, as well--and it isn't long before a bitch with an eye on Belle's position issues a challenge. The only way to put down the threat is for Belle to defeat the usurper in combat.

There's only one problem. Thanks to the pins in her broken hip, Belle can't shift. Without that tactical advantage, it won't be a fair fight. With his new mate's life on the line, Rick is forced to make a decision that will change everything.

That is, if Belle gives him the chance to make it.

Grace just moved to San Francisco and is excited to start over at a new school. The change is full of fresh possibilities, but it's also a tiny bit scary. It gets scarier when a minotaur walks in the door. And even more shocking when a girl who looks just like her shows up to fight the monster.


Gretchen is tired of monsters pulling her out into the wee hours, especially on a school night, but what can she do? Sending the minotaur back to his bleak home is just another notch on her combat belt. She never expected to run into this girl who could be her double, though.


Greer has her life pretty well put together, thank you very much. But that all tilts sideways when two girls who look eerily like her appear on her doorstep and claim they're triplets, supernatural descendants of some hideous creature from Greek myth, destined to spend their lives hunting monsters.


These three teenage descendants of Medusa, the once-beautiful Gorgon maligned in myth, must reunite and embrace their fates in this unique paranormal world where monsters lurk in plain sight.

ceļš pie citiem - ceļš pie sevis

Kobo Abes romānus var lasīt dažādi — kā stāstus un kā

līdzības.

Kaut arī romāni piesātināti ar simboliku un ārkārtīgi izsmalci­nātiem filozofiskiem prātojumiem, lasītāju valdonīgi, neļaujot ne mir­kli pārdomām, vada stāstījums ar skaidru, dinamisku, gluži vai de­tektīvromānam līdzīgu asu sižetu. Stāstījums par skolotāju, kurš gadījuma dēļ nokļūst kādā nelielā piekrastes ciemā un milzu bedrē spiests bez apstājas cīnīties ar smiltīm, lai tās viņu neapraktu, un par viņa veltīgajiem mēģinājumiem izkļūt brīvībā. Vai arī stāstījums par ķīmiķi, kuram šķidrās gāzes sprādzienā sakropļota seja un kurš drudžaini meklē līdzekli, kā iegūt garīgo līdzsvaru un to parasto kontaktu ar apkārtējiem cilvēkiem, ko tik traģiski pārrāvis šis nelai­mes gadījums.

Bet šis priekšmetiskais, emocionāli piesātinātais un aizraujošais stāstījums katrā pagrieziena momentā, katrā varoņa pārdzīvojumu krīzes punktā pēkšņi aizsedzas ar daudzām nozīmes kārtām un pār­vēršas plašā alegorijā, līdzībā par personības tiesībām uz neatkārto­jamu individualitāti un tās pienākumu pret citiem, par cilvēka brī­vību un nebrīvību.

Tieši šajā grafiskajā, gluži kā tušas zīmējuma uzskatāmībā, aiz kuras rodas vesela pasaule sabiedrisku, morālu, psiholoģisku un me- tafizisku problēmu, arī slēpjas japāņu rakstnieka neparastā savda­bība. Šī pasaule ir sarežģīta, un autors to apzinīgi padarījis sarež­ģītāku, daudzējādā ziņā tā ir sveša krievu literatūras tradīcijām, to­mēr tā ir pasaule, kurā dzīvo un mokās kapitālistiskās sabiedrības lielum lielā inteliģences daļa, tāpēc Kobo Abes grāmatas noteikti pelna padomju lasītāju uzmanību.

Kobo Abes līdzības ir tikpat paradoksālas, cik viņa vēstījumi vienkārši. Darbības gaitā autors rūpīgi apsver bezgala daudz atrisi­nājumu, — reizēm tas apmulsina, kaitina, izraisa iekšēju protestu, tāpat kā apmulsina un kaitina nepievilcīgais, naturālistiskais priekš- metiskums, kad var sajust pat smilšu čirkstoņu zobos. Līdzības uni- versālumu līdzsvaro pilnīga ticamība detaļās. Dziļi pārdomāti ir se­cinājumi, pie kuriem rakstnieks mūs pamazām noved, pilnīgi nobrie­dis ir viņa saprātīgais un prasīgais humānisms bez ilūzijām un paš­apmāna. Droši vien viņš varētu atkārtot Brehta vārdus: «Lai būtu labs, man jābūt cietsirdīgam.»

Romāna «Sieviete smiltīs» (1963) varonis — vidusmēra cilvēks — ir vienkāršs skolotājs. Viņam ir viena kaislība — kukaiņu kolekcionē­šana un viens sapnis — atklāt jaunu sugu. «Ja tas izdosies, entomo- loģiskajā atlantā blakus jaunatrastā kukaiņa garajam zinātniskajam latīņu nosaukumam parādīsies arī tavs vārds, un nav izslēgts, ka tas paliks tur uz mūžiem.»

Bet nu šis cilvēks, kas sapņo vismaz ar kaut ko padarīt slavenu savu vārdu, apliecināt sevi kā personību, pazūd.

Izbraucis svētdienā ārpus pilsētas, viņš nokļūst kāda ciemata iedzīvotāju rokās; šo cilvēku vienīgais darbs ir atrakt smiltis, kas draud apbērt viņu mājokļus. Skolotājs nokļūst gūstā dziļā smilšu bedrē un spiests kopā ar kādu vientuļu Sievieti strādāt veltīgu, smagu darbu.

Cilvēks, atrauts no dzīves, nošķirts no pasaules, iemests ieslo­dzījumā, — tā ir viena no visizplatītākajām situācijām jaunās pasau­les literatūrā. Kobo Abes attēlotā bedre galu galā ir tas pats, kas franču rakstnieka Kāmī mēra apsēstā pilsēta. Rakstnieki pievēr­sušies un pievēršas šādam robežstāvoklim — starp dzīvību un nebūtību, pētīdami personības psihofizisko stāvokli. Vieni — lai pie­rādītu cilvēku dzīves un visu pasaulīgo lietu veltīgumu. Citi atkal pašā neiespējamībā izrauties no lamatām meklē sākotni cilvēka vī­rišķīgajam stoicismam nemitīgo briesmu priekšā.

Daudzu Rietumu mākslinieku radītais «savrupais» pasaules mo­delis metaforiski attēlo kapitālistiskās ražošanas stihisko spēku ap­spiestā cilvēka izjūtas, viņa atsvešinātību. Nenovēršami, ka šādos gadījumos ārkārtīgi asi, reizēm slimīgi rodas jautājums par perso­nības īstumu, tiek pārspīlētas tās vienreizīguma, pašvērtības pazīmes. «Elle — tie ir citi,» savā laikā sacījis Sartrs. Šķiet, ka pilnīgā sa­skaņā ar šo tēzi Kobo Abe tēlo aklas nejaušības kopā savesto Niki Dzimpeja un Sievietes mocošo savstarpējo attiecību ainas. Viņi abi uzstājas gan upura, gan bendes lomā. Viņus it kā apdraud pirmā grēka lāsts, kāds mūžsens vainīgums par pašu viņu eksistences faktu. Tomēr japāņu rakstnieks negrib pilnīgi piekrist franču kolēģa uzska­tiem — citādi nav iespējami savstarpēji sakari. «Bez Sartra «cita» ir «cits» — tuvākais vārda kristietiskajā nozīmē, kaut gan kristietība, ab­solutizēdama «cita» ideju, arī nonāk pie kaut kā maldīga.»[3] Kobo Abe, kā liecina romāns, meklē saprātīgu, reālistisku atrisinājumu pret­runām starp personību un tās vidi.

Izmisuma lēkmes un tukšumam teiktās deklarācijas par likumu un personības tiesībām Niki Dzimpejam mijas ar bēgšanas mēģinājumiem. Bet, jo rafinētāki un saprātīgāki ir šie mēģinājumi, jo negaidīti pierastāka kļūst gan bedre, gan ar lāpstu veicamais mehāniskais darbs, kas palīdz samierināties ar laika skrējienu, gan pastāvīgais no­gurums; un viņš jau izjūt patiku, kad viņam no augšas nolaiž ciga­retes un nelādzīgu degvīnu. Un bez tam — Sieviete, kaut arī sveša, toties gluži blakus, atliek tikai pastiept roku …

Apslāpēdams sevī patīkamās domiņas par brīvības «slogu», tās šķietamību, viņš tomēr pēdējo reizi mēģina izrauties no lamatām. Viņš drudžaini bēg projām no bedres, un tikpat drudžaini viņa do­mas skrien atpakaļ pie Sievietes, pie viņu kopīgās briesmīgās eksis­tēšanas brīžiem. Bedre it kā negrib viņu laist vaļā. Maldīdamies starp kāpām, glābdamies no vajāšanas, viņš nokļūst smilšu slīkšņā, viņa kājas stieg aizvien dziļāk un dziļāk, smiltis jau sniedzas līdz viduk­lim, un tad šeit no pašiem viņa būtnes dziļumiem izlaužas dzīvnie­cisks kliedziens — palīdziet! «Dzīvot, par katru cenu palikt dzīvam, pat ja šī dzīve līdzināsies visu pārējo cilvēku dzīvei, gluži kā lēti vienā un tai pašā formā cepti cepumi!»

Fiziskajai kapitulācijai neizbēgami seko morālā kapitulācija. Iezīmējas visbriesmīgākā traģēdija — pielāgošanās traģēdija. Dzīvība pirkta par dārgu cenu — par atteikšanos no visa, no kā veidojas per­sonība. Bet izrādās, ka Niki Dzimpejam nav nekā cita, ar ko maksāt kā vien pārmērīga iedomība un savs «es». Viņš bija domājis, ka spēj veikt kaut ko lielāku nekā bez apstājas rakt smiltis. Bet, atskatīda­mies atpakaļ uz savu pilsētas dzīvi, viņš neatrod it nekā vērtīga, kam būtu jēga un kas paceltos pāri gausajam dienu ritumam. Ku­kaiņu kolekcionēšana, ieilguši mīlestības sakari, kas nedod prieka, pelēcīgs, drūms darbs, ko saindē skaudības bacilis. Būtībā dzīve šeit, nebrīvībā, neatšķiras no dzīves sabiedrībā, kur «brīvais» cilvēks «pērk akcijas, apdrošina dzīvību, ir divkosīgs pret arodbiedrību un priekš­niecību. Viņš aizspiež ausis, lai nedzirdētu izmisīgos palīgā saucie­nus, kas atskan no notekgrāvjiem un atkritumu bedrēm… Lai ne­uzmāktos pārdomas, viņš uzgriež televizoru, cik vien skaļi var…»

Jau pirms nokļūšanas bedrē Niki Dzimpeju bija, burtiski, apsē­dusi ideja par smiltīm — par neauglīgām, plūstošām smiltīm, kas iespiežas visās spraugās, — par cietu, ar hidrodinamiskām īpašībām apveltītu ķermeņu kopumu. Šo ideju viņš liek savas pasaules uzskata sistēmas pamatā. Neskaitāmie plūstošie smilšu graudiņi, kam dia­metrs ir viena astotdaļa milimetra, izaug līdz augstākās realitātes apjomiem — «pati kustība ir smiltis». Smiltis apbedījušas senās civi­lizācijas, un «nekas nevar stāties pretī šim bezveida graujošajam spēkam». Nakts murgos viņam rādās tādas kā mucveida mājas — kuģi, kas veļas pāri plūstošajām smiltīm un glābj no nepieciešamības cīnīties ar tām.

Pārmaiņas bedrē nokļuvušā ceļotāja apziņā nobrieda pamazām, gandrīz pret viņa gribu. Protams, Niki Dzimpejam zināmi tādi jē­dzieni kā taisnīgums vai pienākums pret citiem. Bet, «ja ikreiz gri­bēs glābt tuvāko, kas mirst badā, nekad citam neatliks laika». It īpaši viņam derdzas, ka viņu varmācīgi spiež strādāt. Varbūt viņš arī pats būtu pieteicies palīdzēt. Šķiet, ka notikumu dzelžainā loģika saārda pašapmāna viengabalaino sistēmu, iesaista viņu darbībā. Inteliģen- tisko koncentrētību uz sevi, domu par to, ka viņš ir nevainīgs upu­ris, nomainīja izpratne, ka tieši ciema iedzīvotāji ir pamesti un at­stāti, ka viņiem cietsirdība ir uzspiesta, to radījuši dzīves apstākļi, nepieciešamība aizsargāties no smilšu tirānijas. Joprojām paliekot bedres dibenā, viņā jau mostas tādas jūtas, it kā viņš būtu uzkāpis augstā tornī, no kurienes vieglāk pārskatāms ilgi gaidītais mērķis — brīvība. Un līdzeklis tās sasniegšanai — bēgšana — izrādās nederīgs. Pirmo reizi pēc pusgada tiek nolaistas virvju kāpnes. Bet bēgt — tātad padoties? «Smiltīs kopā ar ūdeni viņš it kā atklāja jaunu cil­vēku.»

Kobo Abe romānā saka: pienākums — tā ir cilvēka pase. Viņa varonis vizējis pasi pie dzīves atstumtajiem. Atteicies no sava «es», viņš pievienojas cilvēcei, jēdzienam «mēs». Romāna galvenā vērtība, acīm redzot, ir tā, ka Kobo Abe, izsekojis vairākiem moko­šiem cilvēka psiholoģiskiem stāvokļiem, noved lasītāju pie nepārpro­tama secinājuma, ka individuālistiskā pozīcija brīvības izpratnē ir ne­pamatota.

Rietumu kritika, kas tiecas pārmērīgi pārspīlēt romāna metafi- zisko pusi, bedres tēlu interpretē asociāli, kā pasauli, kurā neprātīgi rosās primitīvas būtnes, kas moka cita citu. «Muļķīga nejaušība iedzi­nusi nelaimīgos šausmīgās lamatās, pilnīgi nav nekādu ētisku vai so­ciālu motīvu vai kādas kaprīzas gribas, kas viņus būtu nolēmusi tu­rēt mūža ieslodzījumā, — tas viss pasvītro notikušā absurdumu, cē­lonības un mērķa trūkumu, rada vēl lielāku bezcerīguma sajūtu nekā Kafkas «Process»,» rakstīja Parīzes «Mond» recenzents Marsels Bri- ons.[5] Ar visu savu māksliniecisko sistēmu japāņu romāns saceļas pret šādu patvaļīgu interpretāciju. Kafkas antivaroņiem dzīve ir Nāves pa­sludinātā sprieduma izpildīšana iepriekš, neizmeklējot lietu, un ape­lācija augstākās instancēs patiešām ir absurda.

Kobo Abem dzīve ir cīņa — sīva, smaga, tā prasa pašuzupurēša­nos, dažreiz tā pat šķiet bezcerīga, it īpaši, ja domā par visu mir­stīgo kopējo likteni. Bet cilvēks tāpēc arī var saukties par cilvēku, nevis par kukaini, ka, apzinādamies bargo nepieciešamību, nenolaiž rokas, nepakļaujas mierinošajai filozofijai par būtības bezjēdzīgumu.

Romāna «Sieviete smiltīs» pamatā liktā situācija ir nosacīta un eksotiska. Romāna «Svešā seja» (1963) materiāls vairāk tuvināts vēs­turei. Notikumi, kas satricinājuši japāņu nāciju pēdējo gadu desmitu laikā, met draudīgu ēnu uz šo daiļdarbu. Militārisma neierobežotā vara 30. gados, sakāve otrajā pasaules karā, kad galīgi tika iznīcinā­tas varonīgo, dieva svētīto samuraju mūžsenās tradīcijas, astoņpa­dsmit grāmatas ar sešdesmit diviem tūkstošiem Hirosimas un Naga- saki atombombardēšanas upuru vārdiem, «svešo seju» — it īpaši amerikāņu masveida ieplūšana japāņu salās, viņu iejaukšanās ekono­mikā, politikā, kultūrā, šķiru pretišķības — tas viss skaidri sama­nāms sarežģītajā, pretrunīgajā romāna mākslinieciskajā izveidē. Uz­manīgs lasītājs ievēros meitenes tēlu ar caurspīdīgo un skumjo pro­filu un sakropļoto sejas pusi, — acīm redzot, apstarojuma upuri, tā­pat arī daudzos atgādinājumus par karu un varmācību pasaulē, «al­katību, nesaudzīgu dzīvības izšķiešanu» mūsdienu pilsētās. Traģiskā pagātne un šķietami laimīgā tagadne caurstrāvo visu daiļdarbu un atstāj savas pēdas varoņa izskatā. Sakarā ar romāna ekranizāciju Zoržs Saduls rakstīja: «Šim sakropļotajam cilvēkam jāsimbolizē kara izpostītās Japānas seja un Hirosima, kurai laupītas tās īpatnības, tā­pat arī ņudzošie pilsētas pūļi.»

Pēc kara attīstītākajās kapitālistiskajās valstīs izvērsās plašas debates par personības lomas nostiprināšanu sabiedrībā. Jēdzienam identitļ), tas ir, cilvēka identitātei savam uzdevumam, personības īs­tumam, cilvēka individualitātei, ir veltīti zinātniski pētījumi un māk­slas darbi. Buržuāziskie sociologi un psihologi prāto par personības neizbēgamo atsvešināšanos «industriālajā sabiedrībā», par «es» krīzi. Literāti raksta romānus par cilvēka vientulību un individualitātes zu­dumu. Tikpat kā izbeigusies portretu glezniecība: klasiskās harmoni­jas vietā nākusi tendence sadalīt cilvēka ārieni sastāvdaļās, atklāt se­jas konstrukciju. Amerikāņa Džozefa Levi kollāža, kur cilvēks attēlots līdz viduklim ar apaļu ekrānu sejas vietā un uzrakstu «Tas esmu es!», uzskatāmi ilustrē mūsdienu buržuāziskā cilvēka depersonalizāciju.

Ap jēdzienu «personības identifikācija» šķiests tikpat daudz vārdu, cik savā laikā ap relativitātes teoriju vai cīņu par eksistenci. Turpretī marksistiskā doma jau sen konstatējusi, ka «lietisko apstākļu valdīšana pār indivīdiem, individualitātes nomākšana nejaušības val­dīšanas rezultātā ir ieguvusi viskrasāko un visuniversālāko formu» un vēsturiski izskaidroja cilvēka atsvešināšanos ar privātīpašuma at­tīstību.

Ar savu romānu Kobo Abe metas dedzīgajā mūslaiku disputā par personību, atradis apbrīnojami konkrētu un ietilpīgu tēlu — zināt­nieku, kuram neveiksmīgā-ķīmijas eksperimentā sakropļota seja. Va­ronim nav vārda, viņš zaudējis savu ārējo izskatu — tādējādi viņš ir pilnīgi anonīms.

Varonis slēpj keloīdās rētas zem apsējiem, bet tik un tā kolēģi sastopoties samulsuši nolaiž acis, nepazīstami cilvēki uz ielas un elektriskajā vilcienā apjukuši novēršas. Sieva atsvešinās no viņa. Ne­viens nevar dalīties zinātnieka nelaimē, un viņu apņem «vientulība, kāda manāma veca mirstoša suņa acīs. Bezcerīgums, kas jaušams sliežu atbalsotā šķindoņā, kad vēlu naktī remontē sliežu ceļus.» Vi­ņam, spēcīga intelekta cilvēkam, grūti samierināties ar domu, ka āriene — daži kustīgi, ar ādu apvilkti sejas muskuļi — tik daudz nozīmē saskarē ar citiem cilvēkiem. Protams, cilvēka seja ir tas pats, kas personas apliecība, taču tā neizsaka cilvēka būtību. Protams, seja — «tas ir sava veida vienādojums, kas apzīmē attiecības ar ci­tiem cilvēkiem. Tā ir taciņa, kas saista tevi ar viņiem.» Bet vai tikai seja? Daudz jūtamāks cilvēku attiecību simbols ir tas, ko pieņemts dēvēt par sirdi, dvēseli. Pat ja noliedz dvēseli — eksistē dzeja, grā­matas, gramofona plates, kuras, protams, labāk tuvina cilvēkus nekā vienkārša vaigā skatīšana. Cilvēki, kas nekad nav redzējuši autoru, saprot viņa disertāciju, kura veltīta reoloģijai, zinātnei par vielu plūs- tamību (sal. ar Niki Dzimpeja interesi par smilšu hidrodinamiskajām īpašībām). Un viņa prāts, raksturs — vai tiešām tie nozīmē mazāk nekā āriene, vai tiešām būtība pakļauta šķitumam? Abstraktie prāto­jumi par paradumu spriest par cilvēku pēc ārienes noved varoni pie secinājuma, ka aizspriedumi pret ādas krāsu ir mežonīgi. Nav nejau­šība, ka romānā tiek pieminēti Amerikas nēģeri, kuri uzstājas pret diskrimināciju, nav nejaušība, ka arī grāmatas varonis brīžiem iden­tificē sevi ar korejiešiem, kuri Japānā ir rasu aizspriedumu objekts un atrodas izstumto stāvoklī.

Kobo Abes varonis neparedzēja, kā pārvērtīsies šķietamā glābēja doma izgatavot mākslīgu seju. Ar nelielo «masku komēdiju» viņš tikai bija gribējis aizpildīt piespiesti ieilgušo starpbrīdi dzīvē. Tomēr maskas uzlaikošanas brīdī viņš saņem kārtējo triecienu — ne tikai tāpēc, ka pārāk precīza kopija ir nedzīva un izraisa nomācošu iespaidu, bet galvenokārt tādēļ, ka no spoguļa uz viņu vienaldzīgi raugās sveša seja, kas izraisa bezgala daudz asociāciju, — sākot no sirmajā tautas pagātnē iedibinātām «No» masku tradīcijām līdz «Cil­vēkam, kas smejas» un «Neredzamajam cilvēkam». No šī mirkļa arī sākas sarežģītas savstarpējās attiecības starp viņu pašu un viņa masku. Ar maskas tēlu romānā saistīts vesels komplekss morāli filo­zofisku un sociālu problēmu, kuras plašā lokā izvietojas ap jēdzie­niem «seja», «personība», «depersonalizācija», «maska», «atmasko­šana». Vispirms maska ir varoņa pašatsvešināšanās priekšmetiska iz­teiksme. Mēģinājums atjaunot savu agrāko «es» un reizē saites ar citiem cilvēkiem noved viņu pie gluži pretēja rezultāta. Viņa uzliktā maska sāka dzīvot patstāvīgu, neatkarīgu dzīvi, slēpa no citiem viņa īsto cilvēcisko būtību. Atrautība no cilvēkiem padziļina viņa mokošo vientulību un vienlaikus rada tieksmi cietsirdīgi atmaksāt par šo pa­zemojumu. Viņu plosa vispretrunīgākie nodomi gan pret sievu, pret ko viņš izjūt jauktas — «mīlestības un naida» jūtas, gan pret cilvēci vispār. Te viņam uzmācas domas, kuru būtību Oldingtons lakoniski izteicis ar sava romāna nosaukumu — «visi cilvēki ir ienaidnieki», un tad viņu pārņem neprātīga mizantropija, te viņam rodas mazieprie- cinošs secinājums, ka «sejas zaudēšana… ir mūsdienu cilvēku ko­pējais liktenis». Notiek traģiska šķelšanās apziņā, postoša nolūku divējādošanās kas vēlāk noved varoni pie pilnīgas morālas degra­dācijas. Brīžiem viņš vēl apzinās savu egocentrismu: «Esmu piešķī­ris pārāk lielu nozīmi savai vientulībai… Es iztēlojos, ka tā ir lie­lāka par visas cilvēces vientulību.» Bet viņu jau gandrīz pilnīgi pa­ņēmis savā varā līdzinieks — augstprātīgā, valdonīgā, ciniskā maska.

' Analoģisku personības sašķelšanos Kobo Abe tēlo romānā «Ceturtais Iedus laikmets», kur varonis, ievērojams inženieris, atklāja sev pretēju alter ego elektronu skaitļojamā mašīnā, ko bija ieprogrammējuši viņa neapzinātie dzenuli.

Maskas tēls palīdz rakstniekam atklāt tādas pasaules liekulību, kur zem mietpilsoniskas pieklājības aizsega cilvēku attiecību pamatā ir vienīgi personiskas intereses — vai nu tas būtu salts aprēķins, vai mīlestības iegribu apmierināšana. Varbūt tieši tāpēc, ka zaudēta seja, varonis daudz vērīgāk nekā agrāk ielūkojas apkārtējos cilvēkos un spēj «pieiet cieši klāt citai, īstai, nevis uz loga uzzīmētai pasaulei». It kā viņš pirmo reizi būtu ieraudzījis seju vietā maskas, modeļus un manekenus apgaismotos skatlogos, mākslīgos zobus un liekos matus, mānīgo puskrēslu kafejnīcās, viltus labo un viltus Jauno, un tas viss virpuļo nez kādā bezjēdzīgā maskarādē, kur «jebkura īsta manta bija.., spīdošs atdarinājums, jebkurš atdarinājums šeit tika vērtēts kā īsta manta».

Vispārēja maskarāde izraisa haosu, rodas iespaids, ka par to ne­soda. Uzlicis masku, varonis izjūt neaprobežotu brīvību. Viņam ne­valdāmi gribas izmantot radušos iespēju — varbūt tāpēc, ka tā brī­vība, ko viņš pazina, bija iluzoriska. «Iegūto brīvību… varēja salī­dzināt ar manu agrāko brīvību kā sulīgu, jēlu gaļu ar sauso vārdu «gaļa».» Sākumā viņam iešaujas prātā «izšķiest» brīvību, kā viņš iz­sakās, praktiski: izzagt no darba vietas seifa finansu revīzijas do­kumentus vai sevišķi interesantus zinātniskus materiālus. Pēc tam viņš neapzinātu impulsu ietekmē nopērk pistoli. Varonis saprot — «ja atbrīvo sevi no visām garīgajām saitēm un iegūst neierobežotu brī­vību, tad viegli kļūt neierobežoti cietsirdīgam». Bet maska uzmodi­nāja viņa dvēselē snaudošos varmācības un postīšanas dēmonus. Viņam uz miesas sāk svilt visdažādāko veidu «vēlmju puni», un pir­mām kārtām tās ir erotiskās vēlmes, — lūk, kāpēc tik liela vieta ro­mānā ierādīta seksuāliem pārdzīvojumiem. Nepazīstamas sievietes tu­vums pārpildītā elektriskajā vilcienā, apskāvies pārītis pustumšajā kinozālē, viegli pieejama meitene, blakussēdētāja pie kafejnīcas gal­diņa — tas gandrīz vai pārvērš viņu par seksuālu maniaku. Pirmais solis uz pilnīgu pagrimšanu — varmācība pret paša sievu, ko viņš pavedina, izlikdamies par svešu cilvēku. Radušies slimīgie sakari iesveļ viņā briesmīgu greizsirdību. Neatliek nekas cits kā izbeigt šo ab­surdo mīlestības trīsstūri. Bet tas ir Antieiklīda trīsstūris, grafiski at­tēlojot, tā ir taisne, uz kuras novietoti trīs punkti — «viņš», «viņa», «maska». Varonis nevar iznīcināt masku — tas nozīmētu iznīcināt sevi. Tātad… līdz šim slēptā doma par slepkavību pārņem visu va­roņa būtību, un, sakopojis pēdējās gribas atliekas, paslēpies uz trim dienām citur noīrētā istabā, viņš raksta piezīmes sievai. Sīs piezīmes arī ir romāns. So mocošo grēksūdzi rakstījis cilvēks, kas zaudējis seju, iedomājies, ka pasaulē nav nekas augstāks par paša «es», un nonācis līdz robežai, aiz kuras cilvēks pārvēršas par briesmoni.

Visskarbākā apsūdzība varonim izteikta īsajā sievas vēstulē — jau pašā sākumā viņa bija uzminējusi, kas slēpjas zem pavedinātāja maskas. Viņa bija gatava dalīties ar mīļoto cilvēku viņa ciešanās, bija gatava paciest visu ņirgāšanos, taču ar šausmām pārliecinājās, ka maska atklājusi viņai vīra īsto garīgo seju. Viņai atlika tikai ar sāpēm novērot, kā viņš uzcel barjeras starp sevi un citiem cilvēkiem un jebkurā svešā cilvēkā redz tikai savu paša atspoguļojumu, kā ideja par savu pārākumu pārvēršas postīgā mānijā. Jā, pasaulē jaušama nāve. Bet «vai nāvi nesēj tev līdzīgi cilvēki, kuri nevēlas pazīt ne­vienu citu kā vien paši sevi»?

Tātad varonim izteikta skarba apsūdzība. Iepriekš pasludināts arī spriedums — sieva neatgriezīsies pie viņa. Apsūdzētajam tiek dots pēdējais vārds, un jāatzīst, ka viņš to izmanto, apbruņojies ar svarī­giem argumentiem. Sievai domātajā atvadu zīmītē, ko viņš uzraksta pirms tam, iekams pazūd pavisam, dodot vietu maskai, — galvenais nav nožēla, attaisnošanās vai kauns par atmaskojumu. Varonis iz­virza argumentus, kuri nāk prātā, jau lasot romānu, turklāt tikpat nopietnus kā viņam izteiktos apvainojumus.

Galvenais apsūdzētā arguments: tas, par ko viņš kļuvis, ir plašu, visu sabiedrību aptverošu procesu sekas. «Tas, kas ietverts manī… ir visos citos cilvēkos, tas ir kaut kas kopējs.» Niki Dzimpejam visa pasaule šķita bedre, no kuras dibena cilvēki veltīgi pūlas izgrābt smiltis. «Svešās sejas» varoņa saasinātajā uztverē pasaule šķiet mil­zīgs cietums, kurā cilvēki ieslēgti katrs savā vieninieka kamerā. Un katrs no viņiem vainīgs — «vainīgs, ka zaudēta seja, vainīgs, ka pārgriezta taciņa, kas saista ar citiem cilvēkiem, vainīgs, ka zaudēta citu cilvēku rūpju un prieku izpratne, vainīgs, ka zaudētas bailes un prieks par nezināmā atklāšanu citos cilvēkos, vainīgs, ka aizmirsts pienākums radīt citu labā, vainīgs, ka zaudēta mūzika, ko bija klau­sījušies kopā …».

Iziruši cilvēku sakari. Visi kļuvuši atsvešināšanās, «abstraktu cil­vēku attiecību» upuri, — varonis atkal un atkal atgriežas pie šīs formulas savās piezīmēs, noraidīdams viņam izteikto apsūdzību. Šajā sakarā nāk prātā tā lieliskā vieta «Vācu ideoloģijā», kur sacīts, ka sabiedrībā, kas veidojusies stihiski un ko raksturo plaisa starp atse­višķām un kopējām interesēm, viens otram stāv pretī it kā materiali­zēti ražošanas spēki un «vairums indivīdu, no kuriem šie spēki ir at­rāvušies un kuri tāpēc zaudējuši katru reālu dzīves saturu, kļuvuši par abstraktiem indivīdiem…»! . Tāpēc patiešām visā savā briesmī­gajā realitātē mūsu acu priekšā nostājas iedomātā aina — monopo­listiskie koncerni sākuši masveidā ražot maskas plašam patēriņam. Personas apliecības, romāni, izglītība, morāle zaudē jēgu. Jēdzieni «indivīds», «ģimene», «tauta», «tiesības», «pienākumi» pārvēršas mi­rušos vārdos. Parlamenta loceklis sāk blēdīties ar parādzīmēm, bet bankas direktoru apsūdz laupīšanā. Sarodas labējās organizācijas: to dalībnieku sejas slēpj vienādas maskas, gluži kā uniformas. Pati valsts pārvēršas kaut kādā milzīgā maskā. Cilvēki pārdzīvo brīnum jauko atbrīvošanos no tikumības nomācošajām važām un izbauda «no­ziegumu un netikumu smalko aromātu».

Visur tikai maskas šaudās, Bet nav cilvēcīgu seju. Un nav sejas cilvēcei. Un nav nelietībai gala, —

kā rakstīja Ginters Veizenborns lugā «Zaudētā seja», kas arī veltīta mūslaiku rietumu mietpilsoņu melīgajai maskai, kura slēpj viņu barbarisko būtību.

Jāatzīst, ka mūsu ķīmiķis, analizēdams cilvēku savstarpējās attie­cības kapitālismā, nonāk pie nesaudzīga, rūgta, pesimistiska rezul­tāta. Bet viņam pilnīgi nav saprotama novēroto parādību sociālā sin­tēze. Rakstnieks atstāj viņu, paslēpušos aiz stūra ar rokā sažņaugtu pistoli. Viņš ir apņēmības pilns pierādīt cilvēkiem, ka viņi visi ir ko­pēja nozieguma līdzdalībnieki un ka par to jāsamaksā. No tālienes atskan sieviešu papēžu klaudzoņa …

Izvirzās likumsakarīgs jautājums: vai Kobo Abes varonis tomēr ir vainīgs vai ne? Rakstnieks nedod viennozīmīgu atbildi. Tāda at­bilde vispār neeksistē. Ja padomā dzi|āk, atrisinājums atrodams divās varoņa replikās romāna beigās: «Neizdosies apsūdzēt mani vienu pašu … Es ienīstu cilvēkus.»

Nav grūti pamanīt, ka daudzi romāna galvenie motīvi — cilvēka vientulība un atsvešināšanās, vainas un brīvības, un citas problē­mas — tieši sasaucas ar atbilstošajām filozofijas kategorijām un ek- sistenciālisma un tā epigoņu māksliniecisko praksi. Tomēr, izmanto­dams eksistenciālistiskās literatūras arsenālu, Kobo Abe polemizē ar dažiem tās atzinumiem. Tipiskam rietumu prozas varonim raksturīga «ontoloģiska» vientulība, tas ir, vientulība, kas radusies tāda acīm redzama iemesla dēļ, ka pasaulē ir tikai viens mans «es» un viss pā­rējais ir svešs, un šis «es» ir mirstīgs. Kobo Abes varonis arī ir bez­gala vientuļš, taču nevis cilvēka eksistences absurduma dēļ, bet pil­nīgi konkrētu un savā būtībā sociālu apstākļu spiests. Kobo Abe ne­aprobežojas ar to, ka mākslinieciski konstatē atsvešināšanos, kā to ar lielu profesionālu prasmi dara, piemēram, tā saucamā «jaunā ro­māna» piekritēji Francijā. Viņš iet tālāk, cenzdamies atklāt šī psi­holoģiskā stāvokļa sabiedriskās saknes. Atbildēdams uz «Les Lettres Franļaises» korespondenta jautājumu par attieksmi pret šo virzienu, Kobo Abe sacīja: «Mani ļoti interesē tas, ko viņi raksta … Bet jūsu jaunie romānisti ne pārāk tic tam, ko varētu nosaukt par «dieva ieskatu», un pārāk uzticas paši savām acīm. Viņiem ir drusku par daudz narcisisma… Es atzīstu par labāku mazliet atkāpties un pa­skatīties uz lietām no dokumentālās puses.»

Kobo Abe savādāk nekā literāti eksistenciālisti risina arī brīvības problēmu. Tā kā indivīda reālo pašsajūtu buržuāziskajā sabiedrībā nosaka svešu spēku izraisītas apspiestības sajūta un pašapziņas brī­vības sajūta, tad dominējošu nozīmi saskaņā ar eksistenciālistu no­stādni iegūst stihiskas, neatkarīgas, visai individuālas izvēles moments: vienmēr noteikti viena izvēle. Nebūt nenoraidīdams «izvēles» svarī­gumu, japāņu rakstnieks abos romānos cenšas atrast šīs akūtās pro­blēmas objektīvu atrisinājumu. Viņš ne tikai apšauba «absolūtās brī­vības» iespējamību, bet arī parāda, ka zināmos apstākļos brīvība neizbēgami pārvēršas patvaļā, individuālismā, kas nepavisam nesa­deras ar japāņu nacionālo raksturu.

Ielaušanās problemātikā, ko iztirzā galvenokārt nereālistiskā lite­ratūra, tās motīvu un māksliniecisko līdzekļu izmantošana Kobo Abem ir pilnīgi apzināta un izriet no viņa uzskata par reālismu kā metodi, kura nebūt nav absolūta un negarantē dziļu īstenības izpratni. Uzska­tīdams sevi par noteiktu reālisma piekritēju, rakstnieks īpaši pasvītro, ka «tam jābūt īsti mūsdienīgam reālismam… kas pilnīgi izpratis reālismam pretējas parādības un apzinīgi met tām izaicinājumu».[6]

Ārkārtīgi grūti risināt polemiku oponenta ierosinātajos apstākļos, gandrīz neizbēgami radīsies trūkumi — it īpaši apstākļos, kad japāņu sabiedrisko domu ārkārtīgi ietekmē jaunākā angļu-amerikāņu ideālis­tiskā filozofija. Tādi trūkumi ir arī Kobo Abem. Iepriekš minētajā intervijā, skardams tēmu par cilvēku sakariem, viņš izteica uzskatu, ka šī problēma it kā esot «vispārēja, tā izejot no sociālās iekārtas robežām. Pat ja uzceltu ideālu sabiedrību… tad problēma par satik­smi ar citiem cilvēkiem varbūt būtu vēl asāka.» Skaidri apzinādamies, cik bīstami ir pārāk plaši iztulkot brīvības jēdzienu, viņš pats pievēr­šas naivi abstraktam problēmas atrisinājumam. «Varbūt brīvība ir līdzīga ļoti iedarbīgām zālēm,» varonis sev jautā, «mazās devās ārstē, bet, ja devu palielina, iedarbība ir negatīva.» Protams, būtība nav dozējumā, bet brīvības dialektikā, konkrēti vēsturiskā pieejā. Subjek- tivistiskās filozofijas virstoņi sadzirdami ari prātojumos par vispārējo vainu par it kā visspēcīgo un visuresošo ļaunumu pasaulē, domā par postošajiem instinktiem, kas slēpti cilvēka dabā, un vairākos citos momentos.

Niki Dzimpejs ieņēma diezgan vienkāršu dienesta un sabiedrisko stāvokli. Turpretī otra romāna varonis ir nozīmīgas laboratorijas va­dītājs solīdā institūtā un «cieši, gandrīz vai ar kuģa tauvu saistīts pie sabiedrības». Acīm redzot, Kobo Abem bija nepieciešama ievēro­jama persona, lai kontrastā spilgtāk parādītu tās pilnīgo atkrišanu un pēc tam arī deģenerāciju. Tam pašam nolūkam kalpo arī izvēlētā epistulārā forma: viss romāns būtībā ir sievai adresētas piezīmes, kurās varonis cenšas vai nu attaisnoties, vai arī tikt skaidrībā pats ar sevi. Šajās piezīmēs, kas attēlo satrauktas domas juceklīgo dar­bību, ir ļoti daudz līdz galam neizteikta, fantāzijas, seksuālu himeru, pretrunu, un dažreiz to jēga, pēc paša autora atzinuma, pazūd pat viņam pašam. Taču nepārtrauktie iekšējie monologi rada tikai psiho­loģiska dziļuma šķietamību. Starp citu, Kobo Abem vispār nerūp, cik daudzpusīgi un reālistiski ir viņa raksturi. Viņš rada situācijas, no­sacītus, reizēm pat mākslīgus iekšējus stāvokļus, kurus galu galā saskaņo ar psihiatrijas mācību grāmatās izteiktajiem atzinumiem, lai vairākkārt apsvērtu attiecīgās tēzes visus pro un contra. Jāatzīst, ka tas palīdz noraksturot maniakam līdzīgu egocentrisku figūru, bet, no otras puses, autors ieslēdz mūs šaurā kamerā, kur strādā vienīgi viņa varoņa prāta mehānisms. Rezultātā skopās īstenības ainas romānā tiek pārvērstas kā tumšajā kamerā. Epizodiskie personāži, kas parādās romāna lappusēs, izpilda pakārtotu blakus lomu. Līdzības vispārīgums tiek sasniegts ar tuvību dzīves īstenībai, kaut arī to pamato ar bagā­tīgu dabzinātnisku terminoloģiju. Tāda tēlojuma metode izriet no japāņu rakstnieka literatūras uzdevumu izpratnes. «Literatūras jomā domāt dialektiski — tas nenozīmē censties attēlot īstenību visā viņas kopumā, bet pēc pirmā ieskata ierobežojot sevi ar noteiktu parā­dību loku, radoša procesa rezultātā nonākt pie atklājumiem, kuri patiešām bagātina mūsu īstenības izzināšanu,» viņš rakstīja, atbildē­dams uz žurnāla «Inostrannaja ļiteratura» izdarīto aptauju «Reālisms šodien».[7]

Stāsta, ka lasīt Kobo Abi oriģinālā esot ārkārtīgi grūti. Viņu grūti lasīt arī tulkojumā. Uzmanīgu un prasīgu lasītāju atalgos japāņu prozaiķa ieceru plašums, skaidrais saprāts un dziļais humānisms.

Spēcīga personība, uzlikusi svešu masku, neatrada taciņu uz citiem cilvēkiem. Liekas, ka to atrod Niki Dzimpejs, vienkāršais skolotājs. ŠI taciņa ir šaura, kaut arī var izvest uz aktīvā humānisma plašā ce]a. Cilvēks, kas zaudējis seju, sastingst nozieguma un soda krustceļā, bet viņa liktenis palīdz, kad, runājot V. I. Ļeņina vārdiem, jānorauj visas un visādas maskas no melu un varmācības sabiedrības viltus sejas.

Her frustration quickly returns, however, when she realises that he is not actually a spirit. In fact, he may be something much more bloodthirsty indeed. And, contrary to Allie’s own desires (ok, not her desires – perhaps her reason), he has arrogantly made some sort of alpha-male decision that she’s his ‘beloved’, whatever that means...

Hail, Glorious Reader:

I was born the noble son of a legendary Roman senator. I walked through the ancient world as a general, admired and supreme until a brutal betrayal caused me to bargain my soul. Now I'm an immortal Dark-Hunter, bound to protect mankind from the evil scourge that haunts it. Over the centuries, I've seen many frightening things: plagues, pestilence, disco music...

And now Tabitha Devereaux. A human, she has trained herself to fight vampires every bit as capably as any Dark-Hunter. Idiosyncratic and off-beat, she is my personal bane—and yet she beguiles me. There are only two small problems. She happens to be the twin of my mortal enemy's wife. More than that, Tabitha and her sister are being stalked by a power that will not rest until everyone she holds dear is dead.

Unlike my Dark-Hunter brethren, I rely on no one but myself. They spurned me and I turned my back on them. But the only way to save Tabitha and her family is to find some way to bridge a two-thousand-year-old feud.

They say opposites attract, but can they stay together when even the Fates conspire to keep them apart? Then again, the Fates have never dealt with the likes of Tabitha Devereaux before. They're going to be in for quite a fight...

In the realm of the Dark-Hunters there is a code of honor that even immortal bad boys must follow:

Harm no human. Drink no blood. Never fall in love.

But every now and again a Dark-Hunter thinks himself above the Code. That's when I'm summoned. Who am I? I'm the one thing the fearless fear. Step over the line and it's my wrath you will face. Nothing can touch me. Nothing can sway me. I am relentless and unfeeling.

Or so I thought until I met a female Dark-Hunter who goes by the name of Danger-it's not just her name, it's how she lives her life. She doesn't trust me at all. And who could blame her? She alone knows that I'm here to be judge, jury and most likely executioner of her friends. Yet she is my key to saving some of them. Without her, they all will die.

Dangereuse St. Richard is a deadly distraction. Something about her is reawakening a heart I thought was long dead. But in a race against evil, the only hope mankind has is that I do my duty. And how can I do my duty when it means that I will have to sacrifice the only woman I've ever loved?

At a time when the fledgling Trinity Accord seeks to unite a divided world, with Silver playing a crucial role as director of a worldwide emergency response network, wildness and chaos are the last things she needs in her life. But that’s exactly what Valentin Nikolaev, alpha of the StoneWater Bears, brings with him.

Valentin has never met a more fascinating woman. Though Silver is ruled by Silence—her mind clear of all emotion—Valentin senses a whisper of fire around her. That’s what keeps him climbing apartment buildings to be near her. But when a shadow assassin almost succeeds in poisoning Silver, the stakes become deadly serious…and Silver finds herself in the heart of a powerful bear clan.

Her would-be assassin has no idea what their poison has unleashed...

  •  Преследуя тьму
     Мари Аннетт
     Любовные романы, Любовно-фантастические романы

    Пайпер Гриффитс хочет лишь одного: стать Консулом, хранителем мира между людьми и деймонами. Но ей мешают три препятствия.

    Первое — Лир. Инкуб. Жутко привлекательный и хитрый. Его главная миссия — приставать к Пайпер и раздражать ее этим.

    Второе — Эш. Дракониан. Сильный. Опасный. Он много знает, но ничего не раскрывает. А еще он привлекательный… и пугающий. Очень пугающий.

    Третье — камень Сахар. Тайное волшебное оружие массового поражения. До этого его прятали в ее Консульстве, пока не ворвались воры, пока не произошли убийства. А потом воры скрылись.

    И в преступлениях обвиняют Пайпер.

    Теперь она в бегах, ее мечты стать Консулом разбились, а все деймоны в городе желают ее убить. Она может полагаться только на себя, ей некому доверять, кроме двух не заслуживших доверия деймонов… из первого и второго препятствия.

  •  Борн
     Маккормик Дженна
     Любовные романы, Любовно-фантастические романы

    Борн: Естественно рожденные люди, малочисленны, обитают в темноте.

    Брэд: Генетически модифицированные рабы — защитники борнов.

    Борг: Анклав кибернетически усовершенствованных людей, которые отделились от борнов.

    Эти три фракции — все, что осталось от человеческой расы после того, как планета перестала вращаться вокруг своей оси. В попытке выжить в темноте на умирающей Земле, они стали вести между собой войну, причины которой мало кто знает. Все началось с детского пророчества и закончится только тогда, когда они объединяться. Или же погибнут.

    С того момента, как Кормак впервые видит девичий силуэт в отблесках огня, он понимает, что значит жаждать чего-то, чем обладать никогда не сможешь. Брэды созданы обеспечивать естественно рожденных людей, выкапывать им дома глубоко под землей и защищать от постоянно действующей угрозы со стороны киборгов. Брэд, вышедший за пределы своих полномочий, будет немедленно уничтожен, и все же Кормак не может выбросить из головы ее лицо. Пока не находит коробку, зарытую под землей еще задолго до того, как планета остановилась.

    У госпожи Аллоры нет ни малейшего желания наказывать рабочего-брэда, пытавшегося скрыть свою находку, но как служащая колонии, воспитывавшей ее с младенчества, она обязана докладывать обо всем необычном Верховному лорду, даже если это будет стоить жизни голубоглазому мужчине. Но что-то в том, как Кормак смотрит на нее, заставляет Аллору переосмыслить понятия слов «правильно» и «неправильно». И теперь этот генетически модифицированный солдат — ее единственная защита от киборгов, желающих заполучить то, что они обнаружили: дневник, написанный пророчицей Кассандрой, и способ покончить с войной между фракциями навсегда.
