 Автор: Tokarczuk Olga


E.E. jest (…), jak pierwsza powieść Tokarczuk, przypowieścią o tajemnicy ludzkiej osobowości i poszukiwaniu sensu życia, świata. Autorka, mimo fantastycznego kostiumu, okultystycznego, gnostycznego, teozoficznego etc. sztafażu, jest pisarką reprezentującą psychologiczny realizm i sceptycyzm poznawczy. Pisze w możliwie atrakcyjny sposób o rzeczach poważnych i w poważnym tonie. Zwróćmy uwagę, że w jej twórczości w ogóle nie ma ironii, nawet bardziej wyrazistego humoru. Jest chłodna wiwisekcja zdarzeń, życia i osobowości bohaterów, wielostronny ogląd zjawiska i towarzyszących mu okoliczności.

Ciekawe jest obserwować jak Tokarczuk zadbała o uatrakcyjnienie swojej powieści, o "wpasowanie" jej w aktualne dyskusje krytyczne i gusty czytelnicze. Jest w E.E. wątek dziś tak popularny, jak dojrzewanie małych dziewczynek, są tropy feministyczne, jest warstwa "New Age-owska", sięganie do problematyki pogranicza kultur i epok, jest "klasyczna" tradycja powieściowa. Nawet tytuł może być traktowany jako mrugniecie do czytelnika, w którego życiorysie zapisał się skrót "E.T.". Wszystko to wzbudza zaciekawienie, ale w ostatecznym rezultacie jest sprawą drugorzędną. Prawdziwą wartością, jaką ma do zaproponowania autorka E.E., jest przywrócenie zainteresowania osobą, jednostką ludzką, w pełni jej duchowych wymiarów i nie dezaktualizującej się tajemniczości. Jest to rodzaj indywidualizmu na miarę epoki, która się otworzyła i nie ma on wiele wspólnego z tzw. indywidualizmem Polaków, jakim dotąd się szczyciliśmy. (Mirosław Ratajczak, "Odra", 1996 nr 2)

Обложка книги Ear to the Ground Ear to the Ground

 Автор: Kolsby Paul, Ulin David L


Seismologist Charlie Richter, grandson of the inventor of the Richter scale, knows earthquakes, and has a method for predicting them. Arriving in Los Angeles to begin work at the Center for Earthquake Studies, a mysterious agency that seems more Hollywood than science, Charlie settles into his new life. His only distraction from work is Grace, an assistant to a powerful producer, and her deadbeat scriptwriter boyfriend Ian.

It's only a matter of time before Charlie sees the "Big One" looming on the horizon. When Charlie alerts his boss at the Center, he is the one that's in for a shock: this is exactly what the Center was hoping for.

With the news leaked, everyone's suddenly looking to produce the next disaster blockbuster. One of the few scripts Ian actually wrote, Ear to the Ground, happens to be about an earthquake disaster, and soon it's plucked from obscurity and given the fast track. But with a little bit of luck, Charlie may just foil everybody's plans. He just needs explosives, a helicopter, a little more time.

By award-winning writer and Los Angeles Times book critic David Ulin, Ear to the Ground is a rollicking visit back to the 1990s.

 Автор: Domini John


Naples is an urban hive that has suffered many an earthquake over the centuries. The next such shakeup provides Domini with his premise. An American family, Jay and Barbara Lulucita and their five children, are something like innocents abroad. In the naive belief that they can help, they come to this crime-riddled and quake-broken city, which in recent years has also suffered another upheaval, namely, the impact of the illegal immigrants pouring in from Africa. There’s a child faith-healer, rather a New Age version of the classic Catholic figure. There’s an unnerving NATO officer, forever in the same outfit yet forever in disguise. Earthquake I.D. renders an Italy complex and exact.

 Серия:


Young Japanese seaman Hiro Tanaka, inspired by dreams of the City of Brotherly Love and trained in the ways of the samurai, jumps ship off the coast of Georgia and swims into a net of rabid rednecks, genteel ladies, descendants of slaves, and the denizens of an artists' colony. In the hands of T. Coraghessan Boyle, praised by Digby Diehl in Playboy as "one of the most exciting young fiction writers in America," the result is a sexy, hilarious tragicomedy of thwarted expectations and mistaken identity, love, jealousy, and betrayal.

 Серия: Alexander Cleave Trilogy


With this latest novel, John Banville—who has forged a brilliant international reputation with such works as The Book of Evidence and The Untouchable—applies piercing reality to a ghost story to create a profoundly moving tale of a man confronting a life gone awry.

The renowned actor Alexander Cleave has had a breakdown on stage. To recover, he retreats to his boyhood home. Haunted when he lived there as a youth, the house still shelters spirits, and now there are two new lodgers in residence. Overcome by resonant memories that seem to rise up out of the house itself, Cleave is compelled to consider his ruined career, his failing marriage, and his poignant relationship with an estranged daughter destined for doom. Breathtaking, even hypnotic, Eclipse is a virtuoso performance by a writer in a league with Nabokov and DeLillo.

When his invincible 13-year old sister enters yet another beauty pageant — this one for virgins — the combustible Jameses pile into their car and head South for the competition.

Обложка книги Ecstatic Cahoots: Fifty Short Stories Ecstatic Cahoots: Fifty Short Stories

 Автор: Dybek Stuart


In this remarkable collection of bite-size stories, Stuart Dybek, one of our most prodigious writers, explores the human appetite for rapture and for trust. With fervent intensity and sly wit, he gives each tale his signature mix of characters — some almost ghostly, others vividly real — who live in worlds tinged with surreal potential. There are crazed nuns hijacking streetcars, eerie adventures across frozen ponds, and a boy who is visited by a miniature bride and groom every night in his uncle’s doomsday compound. Whether they are about a simple transaction, a brave inquiry, a difficult negotiation, or shared bliss, the stories in Ecstatic Cahoots target the friction between our need for ecstatic self-transcendence and our passionate longing for trust between lovers, friends, family, and even strangers.

Call it micro-fiction or mini-fiction, flash fiction or short shorts. Whatever the label, the marvelous encounters here are marked by puzzlement, anguish, and conspiratorial high spirits. In this thrilling collection, Stuart Dybek has once again re-envisioned the possibilities of fiction, creating myriad human situations that fold endlessly upon each other, his crackling prose drawing out the strange, the intimate, and the mysterious elements in each.

Обложка книги Educated Educated

 Автор: Westover Tara


An unforgettable memoir in the tradition of The Glass Castle about a young girl who, kept out of school, leaves her survivalist family and goes on to earn a PhD from Cambridge University

Tara Westover was 17 the first time she set foot in a classroom. Born to survivalists in the mountains of Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches and sleeping with her "head-for-the-hills bag". In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged in her father's junkyard.

Her father forbade hospitals, so Tara never saw a doctor or nurse. Gashes and concussions, even burns from explosions, were all treated at home with herbalism. The family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an education and no one to intervene when one of Tara's older brothers became violent.

Then, lacking any formal education, Tara began to educate herself. She taught herself enough mathematics and grammar to be admitted to Brigham Young University, where she studied history, learning for the first time about important world events like the Holocaust and the civil rights movement. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to Harvard and to Cambridge. Only then would she wonder if she'd traveled too far, if there was still a way home.

Educated is an account of the struggle for self-invention. It is a tale of fierce family loyalty and of the grief that comes with severing the closest of ties. With the acute insight that distinguishes all great writers, Westover has crafted a universal coming-of-age story that gets to the heart of what an education is and what it offers: the perspective to see one's life through new eyes and the will to change it.

Обложка книги Eight White Nights Eight White Nights

 Автор: Aciman Andre


A LUSHLY ROMANTIC NOVEL FROM THE AUTHOR OF CALL ME BY YOUR NAME.

Eight White Nights is an unforgettable journey through that enchanted terrain where passion and fear and the sheer craving to ask for love and to show love can forever alter who we are. A man in his late twenties goes to a large Christmas party in Manhattan where a woman introduces herself with three words: "I am Clara." Over the following seven days, they meet every evening at the same cinema. Overwhelmed yet cautious, he treads softly and won’t hazard a move. The tension between them builds gradually, marked by ambivalence, hope, and distrust. As André Aciman explores their emotions with uncompromising accuracy and sensuous prose, they move both closer together and farther apart, culminating on New Year's Eve in a final scene charged with magic and the promise of renewal. Call Me by Your Name, Aciman's debut novel, established him as one of the finest writers of our time, an expert at the most sultry depictions of longing and desire. As The Washington Post Book World wrote, "The beauty of Aciman’s writing and the purity of his passions should place this extraordinary first novel within the canon of great romantic love stories for everyone." Aciman’s piercing and romantic new novel is a brilliant performance from a master prose stylist.

Обложка книги Eileen Eileen

 Автор: Moshfegh Ottessa


A lonely young woman working in a boys’ prison outside Boston in the early 60s is pulled into a very strange crime, in a mordant, harrowing story of obsession and suspense, by one of the brightest new voices in fiction.

So here we are. My name was Eileen Dunlop. Now you know me. I was twenty-four years old then, and had a job that paid fifty-seven dollars a week as a kind of secretary at a private juvenile correctional facility for teenage boys. I think of it now as what it really was for all intents and purposes — a prison for boys. I will call it Moorehead. Delvin Moorehead was a terrible landlord I had years later, and so to use his name for such a place feels appropriate. In a week, I would run away from home and never go back.

This is the story of how I disappeared.

The Christmas season offers little cheer for Eileen Dunlop, an unassuming yet disturbed young woman trapped between her role as her alcoholic father’s caretaker in a home whose squalor is the talk of the neighborhood and a day job as a secretary at the boys’ prison, filled with its own quotidian horrors. Consumed by resentment and self-loathing, Eileen tempers her dreary days with perverse fantasies and dreams of escaping to the big city. In the meantime, she fills her nights and weekends with shoplifting, stalking a buff prison guard named Randy, and cleaning up her increasingly deranged father’s messes. When the bright, beautiful, and cheery Rebecca Saint John arrives on the scene as the new counselor at Moorehead, Eileen is enchanted and proves unable to resist what appears at first to be a miraculously budding friendship. In a Hitchcockian twist, her affection for Rebecca ultimately pulls her into complicity in a crime that surpasses her wildest imaginings.

Played out against the snowy landscape of coastal New England in the days leading up to Christmas, young Eileen’s story is told from the gimlet-eyed perspective of the now much older narrator. Creepy, mesmerizing, and sublimely funny, in the tradition of Shirley Jackson and early Vladimir Nabokov, this powerful debut novel enthralls and shocks, and introduces one of the most original new voices in contemporary literature.
