Обложка книги A Big Little Life: A Memoir of a Joyful Dog A Big Little Life: A Memoir of a Joyful Dog

 Автор: Koontz Dean

"In each little life we can see great truth and beauty, and in each little life we glimpse the way of all things in the universe."

DEAN KOONTZ thought he had everything he needed. A successful novelist with more than twenty #1 New York Times bestsellers to his credit, Dean had forged a career out of industry and imagination. He had been married to his high school sweetheart, Gerda, since the age of twenty, and together they had made a happy life for themselves in their Southern California home. It was the picture of peace and contentment. Then along came Trixie.

Dean had always wanted a dog-had even written several books in which dogs were featured. But not until Trixie was he truly open to the change that such a beautiful creature could bring about in him. Trixie had intelligence, a lack of vanity, and an uncanny knack for living in the present. And because she was joyful and direct as all dogs are, she put her heart into everything-from chasing tennis balls, to playing practical jokes, to protecting those she loved.

A retired service dog with Canine Companions for Independence, Trixie became an assistance dog of another kind. She taught Dean to trust his instincts, persuaded him to cut down to a fifty-hour work week, and, perhaps most important, renewed in him a sense of wonder that will remain with him for the rest of his life. She mended him in many ways.

Trixie weighed only sixty-something pounds, Dean occasionally called her Short Stuff, and she lived less than twelve years. In this big world, she was a little thing, but in all the ways that mattered, including the effect she had on those who loved her, she lived a big life.

Обложка книги A Night to Remember A Night to Remember

 Автор: Fellowes Julian, Lord Walter, Lavery Brian

‘There is no danger that Titanic will sink. The boat is unsinkable and nothing but inconvenience will be suffered by the passengers.’

— Phillip Franklin, White Star Line Vice-President

On April 15th, 1912, Titanic, the world’s largest passenger ship, sank after colliding with an iceberg, claiming more than 1,500 lives. Walter Lord’s classic bestselling history of the voyage, the wreck and the aftermath is a tour de force of detailed investigation and the upstairs/downstairs divide. A Night to Remember provides a vivid, gripping and deeply personal account of the ‘unsinkable’ Titanic’s descent. Includes a new prologue by Julian Fellowes.

 Автор: Жадан Сергій Вікторович

Актуальний «Луганський щоденник»!

Десять років тому герої «Anarchy in the Ukr» здійснили ідейну подорож Східною Україною, місцями бойової слави Нестора Махна. Мандруючи Донбасом, вони шукали відповіді на питання – що ж таке воля-свобода-анархія? Чи є межа між ними та де вона пролягає? Сьогодні автор знову відвідав територію, що колись була територією анархізму. Але цього разу – в дуже наелектризованій атмосфері, коли саме повітря просякнуте війною… Вже не давнішньою, часів Нестора Івановича, а більш ніж сучасною…
