обложка книги B Is for Beer B Is for Beer

A Children's Book About Beer?

Yes, believe it or not — but B Is for Beer is also a book for adults, and bear in mind that it's the work of maverick bestselling novelist Tom Robbins, inter-nationally known for his ability to both seriously illuminate and comically entertain.

Once upon a time (right about now) there was a planet (how about this one?) whose inhabitants consumed thirty-six billion gallons of beer each year (it's a fact, you can Google it). Among those affected, each in his or her own way, by all the bubbles, burps, and foam, was a smart, wide-eyed, adventurous kindergartner named Gracie; her distracted mommy; her insensitive dad; her non-conformist uncle; and a magical, butt-kicking intruder from a world within our world.

Populated by the aforementioned characters — and as charming as it may be subversive—B Is for Beer involves readers, young and old, in a surprising, far-reaching investigation into the limits of reality, the transformative powers of children, and, of course, the ultimate meaning of a tall, cold brewski.

обложка книги Baba Dunja's Last Love Baba Dunja's Last Love

Government warnings about radiation levels in her hometown (a stone’s throw from Chernobyl) be damned! Baba Dunja is going home. And she’s taking a motley bunch of her former neighbors with her. With strangely misshapen forest fruits to spare and the town largely to themselves, they have pretty much everything they need and they plan to start anew.

The terminally ill Petrov passes the time reading love poems in his hammock; Marja takes up with the almost 100-year-old Sidorow; Baba Dunja whiles away her days writing letters to her daughter. Life is beautiful. That is until one day a stranger turns up in the village and once again the little idyllic settlement faces annihilation.

From the prodigiously talented Alina Bronsky, this is a return to the iron-willed and infuriatingly misguided older female protagonist that she made famous with her unforgettable Russian matriarch, Rosa Achmetowna, in The Hottest Dishes of the Tartar Cuisine. Here she tells the story of a post-meltdown settlement, and of an unusual woman, Baba Dunja, who, late in life, finds her version of paradise.

обложка книги Baba Yaga Laid an Egg Baba Yaga Laid an Egg

“Baba Yaga is an old hag who lives in a house built on chicken legs and kidnaps small children. She is one of the most pervasive and powerful creatures in all mythology.”

“But what does she have to do with a writer’s journey to Bulgaria in 2007 on behalf of her mother?”

“Or with a trio of women who decide in their old age to spend a week together at a hotel spa?”

By the end of Dubravka Ugrešić’s novel, the answers are revealed. Her story is shot through with spellbinding, magic, involving a gambling triumph, sudden death on the golf course, a long-lost grandchild, an invasion of starlings, and wartime flight, the consequences of which are revealed only decades later.

обложка книги Baboon Baboon

Beginning in the middle of crisis, then accelerating through plots that grow stranger by the page, Naja Marie Aidt’s stories have a feel all their own. Though they are built around the common themes of sex, love, desire, and gender, Aidt pushes them into her own desperate, frantic realm. In one, a whore shows up unannounced at a man’s apartment, roosts in his living room, and then violently threatens him when he tries to make her leave. In another, a wife takes her husband to a city where it is women, not men, who are the dominant sex — but was it all a hallucination when she finds herself tied to a board and dragged back to his car? And in the unforgettable “Blackcurrant,” two young women who have turned away from men and toward lesbianism abscond to a farm, where they discover that their neighbor’s son is experimenting with his own kind of sexuality. The first book from the widely lauded Aidt to reach the English language, Baboon delivers audacious writing that careens toward bizarre, yet utterly truthful, realizations.

обложка книги Babylon and Other Stories Babylon and Other Stories

In their various locales-from Montreal (where a prosthetic leg casts a furious spell on its beholders) to New Mexico (where a Soviet-era exchange student redefines home for his hosts)-the characters in Babylon are coming to terms with life's epiphanies, for good or ill.

They range from the very young who, confronted with their parents' limitations, discover their own resolve, to those facing middle age and its particular indignities, no less determined to assert themselves and shape their destinies. Babylon and Other Stories showcases the wit, humor, and insight that have made Alix Ohlin one of the most admired young writers working today.

« Tout le monde riait. Les Manoscrivi riaient. C’est l’image d’eux qui est restée. Jean-Lino, en chemise parme, avec ses nouvelles lunettes jaunes semi-rondes, debout derrière le canapé, empourpré par le champagne ou par l’excitation d’être en société, toutes dents exposées. Lydie, assise en dessous, jupe déployée de part et d’autre, visage penché vers la gauche et riant aux éclats. Riant sans doute du dernier rire de sa vie. Un rire que je scrute à l’infini. Un rire sans malice, sans coquetterie, que j’entends encore résonner avec son fond bêta, un rire que rien ne menace, qui ne devine rien, ne sait rien. Nous ne sommes pas prévenus de l’irrémédiable. »

обложка книги Back to Back Back to Back

Julia Franck's German-Book-Prize-winning novel, The Blindness of the Heart, was an international phenomenon, selling 850,000 copies in Germany alone and being published in thirty-five countries. Her newest work, Back to Back echoes the themes of The Blindness of the Heart, telling a moving personal story set against the tragedies of twentieth-century Germany.

Back to Back begins in 1954, and centers around a single family living in Berlin in the socialist East. The mother, Käthe, is a sculptor of Jewish heritage, who has been leveraging her party connections in order to get more important and significant commissions. Devoted entirely to becoming a success in the socialist state, she is a cruel and completely unaffectionate mother, putting the party above her children, who she treats as if they were adults — there is no bourgeois mollycoddling in her household. Thomas and Ella's father emigrated to West Germany after World War II, and they deeply long to see him again and dream of a life where they could be allowed to have the kind of childhood that other children enjoy. But Käthe's hard-nosed brutality — a reflection of the materialistic, unsentimental state in which she lives — means Thomas and Ella are unable to live the lives they want to — instead of his dream of becoming a writer, Thomas is forced to study geology, and do hard labor at a quarry as the practical part of his education. And Ella, meanwhile, is becoming increasingly introverted and strange — not least because the Stasi lodger the government has billetted in their home is beginning to abuse her…

Heartbreaking and shocking, Back to Back is a dark fairytale of East Germany, the story of a single family tragedy that reflects the greater tragedies of totalitarianism.

обложка книги Back to Moscow Back to Moscow

Tuesday night: vodka and dancing at the Hungry Duck. Wednesday morning: posing as an expert on Pushkin at the university. Thursday night: more vodka and girl-chasing at Propaganda. Friday morning: a hungover tour of Gorky's house.

Martin came to Moscow at the turn of the millennium hoping to discover the country of Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, and his beloved Chekhov. Instead he found a city turned on its head, where the grimmest vestiges of Soviet life exist side by side with the nonstop hedonism of the newly rich. Along with his hard-living expat friends, Martin spends less and less time on his studies, choosing to learn about the Mysterious Russian Soul from the city's unhinged nightlife scene. But as Martin's research becomes a quest for existential meaning, love affairs and literature lead to the same hard-won lessons. Russians know: There is more to life than happiness.

Back to Moscow is an enthralling story of debauchery, discovery, and the Russian classics. In prose recalling the neurotic openheartedness of Ben Lerner and the whiskey-sour satire of Bret Easton Ellis, Guillermo Erades has crafted an unforgettable coming-of-age story and a complex portrait of a radically changing city.

обложка книги Back When We Were Grownups Back When We Were Grownups

"Once upon a time, there was a woman who discovered that she had turned into the wrong person." So Anne Tyler opens this irresistible new novel.

The woman is Rebecca Davitch, a fifty-three-year-old grandmother. Is she an impostor in her own life? she asks herself. Is it indeed her own life? Or is it someone else's?

On the surface, Beck, as she is known to the Davitch clan, is outgoing, joyous, a natural celebrator. Giving parties is, after all, her vocation-something she slipped into even before finishing college, when Joe Davitch spotted her at an engagement party in his family's crumbling nineteenth-century Baltimore row house, where giving parties was the family business. What caught his fancy was that she seemed to be having such a wonderful time. Soon this large-spirited older man, divorced with three little girls, swept her into his orbit, and before she knew it she was embracing his extended family plus a child of their own, and hosting endless parties in the ornate, high-ceilinged rooms of The Open Arms.

Now, some thirty years later, after presiding over a disastrous family picnic, Rebecca is caught un-awares by the question of who she really is. How she answers it-how she tries to recover her girlhood self, that dignified grownup she had once been-is the story told in this beguiling, funny, and deeply moving novel.

As always with Anne Tyler's novels, once we enter her world it is hard to leave. But in Back When We Were Grownups she so sharpens our perceptions and awakens so many untapped feelings that we come away not only refreshed and delighted, but also infinitely wiser.

обложка книги Bad Behavior Bad Behavior

A trade paperback reissue of National Book Award finalist Mary Gaitskill’s debut collection, Bad Behavior — powerful stories about dislocation, longing, and desire which depict a disenchanted and rebellious urban fringe generation that is searching for human connection.

Now a classic: Bad Behavior made critical waves when it first published, heralding Gaitskill’s arrival on the literary scene and her establishment as one of the sharpest, erotically charged, and audaciously funny writing talents of contemporary literature. Michiko Kakutani of The New York Times called it “Pinteresque,” saying, “Ms. Gaitskill writes with such authority, such radar-perfect detail, that she is able to make even the most extreme situations seem real… her reportorial candor, uncompromised by sentimentality or voyeuristic charm…underscores the strength of her debut.”

обложка книги Bad Faith Bad Faith

With results both liberating and disastrous, the characters of Bad Faith flee the trappings of contemporary domestic life. A father visits a college friend in El Salvador rather than face difficulties with the birth of his third child; a boy comes to terms with his fractured family and the disabled father responsible for his care after his mom is stationed overseas; a biracial man journeys across Nebraska for the funeral of his white mother and strikes up an improbable if dishonest relationship with a centenarian Irish woman; and in the title story, the running narrative of a pathetic yet compelling ladies man culminates in an unexpected and deadly confrontation. In Theodore Wheeler's collection of prize-winning stories, the herd can't always outpace the predator.

обложка книги Bad Karma Bad Karma

Cleo Tyler is a fraud. A fake. A phony. At least that's what police officer Daniel Sinclair thinks. And Cleo agrees. But she's out of money and needs a job, so when the call for a psychic comes from the chief of police in Egypt, Missouri, Cleo, and her dog Premonition board a train in Seattle for the cross-country journey to the Midwestern town that is so small a vegetarian would-be psychic can't find a decent meal. There, beneath the picture of pulchritudinous perfection, Cleo finds a whole cast of eccentrics, including former San Diego hostage negotiator Daniel Sinclair who has returned home to care for his developmentally challenged brother Beau, a police chief who consults tarot cards, and a dentist mayor with the phoniest smile money can buy. Haunted by nightmares of the accident that killed her fiancé and their unborn child, Cleo believes her "gift" for seeing things relates solely to the horrible night she'll never forget. Imagine her surprise when she finds her dreams filled with torrid visions of her dubious escort, Daniel-and details of Egypt's only murder, which is as yet unsolved. Award-winning author Theresa Weir blesses audiences here with her talent for vivid prose ("He looked at her with spoon-bending concentration…"), quirky characters, and unexpected humor.

обложка книги Bad Light Bad Light

"A heir to Javier Marías. . An outstanding stylistic narrative. A joyful discovery." — J. M. Pozuelo Yvancos, ABC Cultural

Prostitution, homosexualité, meurtres, vols… deux jeunes filles, Nadine et Manu, refusant de se résigner face à la vie, s'aventurent dans un monde immoral et sans loi. Prédatrices insatiables, elles nient défaites et frustrations, persuadées que ce qui ne les tuera pas les rendra plus fortes…

" Voici du pain blanc pour cinquante ans de critique " écrivait Céline en rendant le manuscrit de Voyage au bout de la nuit. Ce n'est pas le cas du premier roman de Virginie Despentes, qu'on lui a pourtant longtemps comparé. Cette réédition en poche du livre par lequel le scandale est arrivé nous permet de constater à quel point on a fait beaucoup de bruit pour rien. Les aléas de la vie de Nadine et Manu, deux paumées en mal de sensations fortes, ont à peu près autant d'épaisseur qu'un Manix 00. Un sujet que nos deux héroïnes – le sexe – connaissent bien. Car aucun cliché ne nous est épargné: la prostitution, le meurtre de sang froid, l'argent, le vol, l'homosexualité… Sorte de Thelma et Louise à la française, Baise-moi passe au miroir grossissant tous les vices que deux marginales peuvent potentiellement développer. D'une écriture frigide, Virginie Despentes nous plonge dans l'univers chaotique de deux petites frappes en cavale. A grands coups de JB, de masturbation et de tirs de revolver, elles tentent de trouver les limites. Mais cet opus, qui se veut provocateur, finit sur un ton bien comme il faut. Pour ne pas casser le suspense – si tant est qu'il y en ait -, nous dirons qu'elles finissent frappées par un juste coup du sort. Aussi excitant qu'une partie de pêche à la mouche sur un lac suisse.-Chloé S.-

Bajo La Fría Luz De Octubre

Esta es una historia tierna e inocente, fiera y salvaje, entrañable y cálida, cruel y despiadada.

Es una historia tejida con recuerdos, ilusiones y esperanzas, pero teñida también de fracasos, decepciones y derrotas…

Es la crónica de una España que la guerra partió en dos… para obligarnos de nuevo a juntarla. Es una historia que nos pertenece un poco a todos… porque entre todos hacemos la Historia.

  •  Паяц (Сборник)
     Манн Томас
     Проза, Современная проза

    Томас Манн был одним из тех редких писателей, которым в равной степени удавались произведения и «больших», и «малых» форм. Причем если в его романах содержание тяготело над формой, то в рассказах форма и содержание находились в совершенной гармонии.

    «Малые» произведения, вошедшие в этот сборник, относятся к разным периодам творчества Манна. Чаще всего сюжеты их несложны — любовь и разочарование, ожидание чуда и скука повседневности, жажда жизни и утрата иллюзий, приносящая с собой боль и мудрость жизненного опыта. Однако именно простота сюжета подчеркивает и великолепие языка автора, и тонкость стиля, и психологическую глубину.

  •  Убить Бобрыкина: История одного убийства
     Николаенко Александра
     Проза, Современная проза

    Эта книга встанет в один ряд с «Школой для дураков» Саши Соколова и «Москва — Петушки» Венедикта Ерофеева. И дело не только в удивительном языке, которым она написана, а в силе трагического напряжения, на котором она держится.

    Искренняя, преданная, хотя и не без щербинки, любовь. Психологическое насилие вполне определенно очерчивает портрет блаженного героя. «Опаздывают те, которых ждут… А ты себе не нужен…, — сказала мать». «Бобрыкин ненавистный» — маленький (не главный) мучитель в школе и муж подружки, когда дети повзрослели. Черты игры и сна, тщательно подобранные ряды перечислений. Перед нами некий фарс, карикатура и тонкая стилизация со множеством литературных пересечений. Прозой это назвать трудно. Инверсии, «срифмованные» смыслы, которые отскакивают, словно мячик, возвращаются: текст ритмически организован и… статичен, вместо единого речевого потока формируя произвольные островки, где открывается, варьируется, преобразуется ужас и волшебство обыденных, простых вещей.
