Обложка книги S S

 Автор: Updike John

 Жанр: Проза, Современная проза

S. is Sarah Worth – doctor's wife, North Shore matron, loving mother, and now (suddenly!) ardent follower of a Hindu religious leader known as the Arhat. As this brilliant and very funny novel opens, Sarah is fleeing the confinement of her suburban life to become a sannyasin (pilgrim) at her guru's Arizona ashram.

In the letters and audiocassettes that Sarah sends to her husband, daughter, mother, brother, best friend – to her psychiatrist and her hairdresser and her dentist – master novelist John Updike gives us a witty comedy of manners, a biting satire of life on a religious commune, and the story – deep and true – of an American woman in search of herself.

 Автор: Grafton Sue

 Жанр: Детективы и Триллеры, Триллер

Thirty-four years ago, Violet Sullivan put on her party finery and left for the annual Fourth of July fireworks display. She was never seen again.

In the small California town of Serena Station, tongues wagged. Some said she'd run off with a lover. Some said she was murdered by her husband.

But for the not-quite-seven-year-old daughter Daisy she left behind, Violet's absence has never been explained or forgotten.

Now, thirty-four years later, she wants the solace of closure.

In S is for Silence, Kinsey Millhone's nineteenth excursion into the world of suspense and misadventure, S is for surprises as Sue Grafton takes a whole new approach to telling the tale. And S is for superb: Kinsey and Grafton at their best.

Обложка книги SA80 Assault Rifles SA80 Assault Rifles

 Автор: Grant Neil

 Серия: Weapon


Now the standard weapon for British soldiers across the globe, the SA80’s early years were surrounded in controversy after a series of dismal performances. It was prone to jamming in desert conditions, had several flimsy parts that would often break after repeated use and had an incredibly sensitive magazine catch. When these issues came to light the SA80 was lambasted by the news, leading to the Ministry of Defence ordering an extensive modification programme that dramatically improved reliability.

Combat accounts and in-depth analysis of the SA80’s performance in Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and Iraq guide the reader through its troubled life, while vivid artwork helps to illustrate the transformation it underwent; from an unreliable rifle disliked by the soldiers who used it to being one of the world’s most innovative and accurate small arms.

 Автор: án Manuel ázquez

 Жанр: Проза, Современная проза

Pepe Carvalho nació en Yo maté a Kennedy, en 1970. Desde entonces, Vázquez Montalbán ha escrito una decena de novelas en las que el peculiar detective es el protagonista. Destacan, por citar sólo algunos títulos, Tatuaje, Las pájaros de Bangkok, Los mares del Sur o Asesinato en el Comité Central. Todas ellas siguen una línea muy definida, con argumentos sólidos, adscritas al género negro o policiaco y que el propio Vázquez Montalbán califica acertadamente de crónica de una ciudad y una época. Pues bien, esta línea se rompe bruscamente en El laberinto griego, sobre la Barcelona preolímpica y, sobre todo, en Sabotaje olímpico, sobre los Juegos Olímpicos, Vázquez Montalbán da con ellas un giro de 180 grados en la relación fondo / forma y cuenta su historia al margen de las fórmulas habituales

Sabotaje olímpico fue concebida como una anticrónica de los Juegos Olímpicos de Barcelona que se publicó en capítulos en el suplemento olímpico de EL PAÍS. Manuel Vázquez Montalbán (Barcelona, 1939) ha dejado reposar la historia y la ha reelaborado desde la visión de una Barcelona y una España del verano de 1993, cuando todos los fastos y la alegría del 92 ya han acabado y la palabra crisis está en boca de todos: `los dioses se han marchado al olimpo verdadero, pero ni siquiera, de creer a las autoridades económicas, han tenido la gentileza de dejarnos el pan y el vino`.

Обложка книги Sacred Games Sacred Games

 Автор: Chandra Vikram

 Жанр: Проза, Современная проза

Seven years in the making, Sacred Games is an epic of exceptional richness and power. Vikram Chandra's novel draws the reader deep into the life of Inspector Sartaj Singh — and into the criminal underworld of Ganesh Gaitonde, the most wanted gangster in India.

Sartaj, one of the very few Sikhs on the Mumbai police force, is used to being identified by his turban, beard and the sharp cut of his trousers. But "the silky Sikh" is now past forty, his marriage is over and his career prospects are on the slide. When Sartaj gets an anonymous tip-off as to the secret hide-out of the legendary boss of G-Company, he's determined that he'll be the one to collect the prize.

Vikram Chandra's keenly anticipated new novel is a magnificent story of friendship and betrayal, of terrible violence, of an astonishing modern city and its dark side. Drawing inspiration from the classics of nineteenth-century fiction, mystery novels, Bollywood movies and Chandra's own life and research on the streets of Mumbai, Sacred Games evokes with devastating realism the way we live now but resonates with the intelligence and emotional depth of the best of literature.

 Автор: Dunant Sarah

 Жанр: Проза, Историческая проза

Santa Catarina, a convent near Venice, is home to over one hundred women in 1567. But with powerful forces for change raging outside the convent, and with the world of the women within threatened by a new arrival, passions, hysteria, and conflict will come to threaten their very survival.

By the second half of the sixteenth century, the price of wedding dowries had risen so sharply within Catholic Europe that most noble families could not afford to marry off more than one daughter. The remaining young women were dispatched—for a much lesser price—to convents. Historians estimate that in the great towns and city-states of Italy up to half of all noblewomen became nuns. Not all of them went willingly… This story takes place in the northern Italian city of Ferrara in 1570, in the convent of Santa Caterina.

"Operation Redemption"

Funded by the CIA, the covert op, a plan to rescue five American POWs in Vietnam, ended in failure. For Grant Stevens and his SEAL Team, the SAR mission was one of the most emotional they ever attempted. It would not be forgotten.

Years Later — The news hits the Agency like a bombshell. American POWs are still being held — but not in Vietnam. Is it possible they're the same five men from the failed mission? To Stevens this matters little. The men must be brought home.

Not often in his line of work does a second chance come along, but he's about to get that second chance. This time he'll make it right — even if it means making the ultimate sacrifice.

 Серия: Giordano Bruno

 Жанр: Детективы и Триллеры, Исторический детектив

A gripping historical thriller set in sixteenth-century England and centered on the highly secretive cult of Saint Thomas Becket, the twelfth-century archbishop murdered in Canterbury Cathedral.

 London, summer of 1584: Radical philosopher, ex-monk, and spy Giordano Bruno suspects he is being followed by an old enemy. He is shocked to discover that his pursuer is in fact Sophia Underhill, a young woman with whom he was once in love. When Bruno learns that Sophia has been accused of murdering her husband, a prominent magistrate in Canterbury, he agrees to do anything he can to help clear her name.

In the city that was once England's greatest center of pilgrimage, Bruno begins to uncover unsuspected secrets that point to the dead man being part of a larger and more dangerous plot in the making. He must turn his detective's eye on history — on Saint Thomas Becket, the twelfth-century archbishop murdered in Canterbury Cathedral, and on the legend surrounding the disappearance of his body — in order to solve the crime.

As Bruno's feelings for Sophia grow more intense, so does his fear that another murder is about to take place — perhaps his own. But more than Bruno's life is at stake in this vividly rendered, impeccably researched, and addictively page-turning whodunit — the stability of the kingdom hangs in the balance as Bruno hunts down a brutal murderer in the shadows of England's most ancient cathedral.

Обложка книги Safe as Houses Safe as Houses

 Автор: Bertino Marie-Helene

 Жанр: Проза, Современная проза

Safe as Houses, the debut story collection of Marie-Helene Bertino, proves that not all homes are shelters. The titular story revolves around an aging English professor who, mourning the loss of his wife, robs other people's homes of their sentimental knick-knacks. In "Free Ham," a young dropout wins a ham after her house burns down and refuses to accept it. “Has my ham done anything wrong?” she asks when the grocery store manager demands that she claim it.

In "Carry Me Home, Sisters of Saint Joseph," a failed commercial writer moves into the basement of a convent and inadvertently discovers the secrets of the Sisters of Saint Joseph. A girl, hoping to talk her brother out of enlisting in the army, brings Bob Dylan home for Thanksgiving dinner in the quiet, dreamy "North Of." In “The Idea of Marcel,” Emily, a conservative, elegant girl, has dinner with the idea of her ex-boyfriend, Marcel. In a night filled with baffling coincidences, including Marcel having dinner with his idea of Emily, she wonders why we tend to be more in love with ideas than with reality. In and out of the rooms of these gritty, whimsical stories roam troubled, funny people struggling to reconcile their circumstances to some kind of American Ideal and failing, over and over.

The stories of Safe as Houses are magical and original and help answer such universal and existential questions as: How far will we go to stay loyal to our friends? Can we love a man even though he is inches shorter than our ideal? Why doesn’t Bob Dylan ever have his own smokes? And are there patron saints for everything, even lost socks and bad movies?

All homes are not shelters. But then again, some are. Welcome to the home of Marie-Helene Bertino.

Обложка книги Safe from the Sea Safe from the Sea

 Автор: Geye Peter

 Жанр: Проза, Современная проза

Set against the powerful lakeshore landscape of northern Minnesota, Safe from the Sea is a heartfelt novel in which a son returns home to reconnect with his estranged and dying father thirty-five years after the tragic wreck of a Great Lakes ore boat that the father only partially survived and that has divided them emotionally ever since. When his father for the first time finally tells the story of the horrific disaster he has carried with him so long, it leads the two men to reconsider each other.

Meanwhile, Noah's own struggle to make a life with an absent father has found its real reward in his relationship with his sagacious wife, Natalie, whose complications with infertility issues have marked her husband's life in ways he only fully realizes as the reconciliation with his father takes shape.

Peter Geye has delivered an archetypal story of a father and son, of the tug and pull of family bonds, of Norwegian immigrant culture, of dramatic shipwrecks and the business and adventure of Great Lakes shipping in a setting that simply casts a spell over the characters as well as the reader.

The breakthrough story collection that established A. M. Homes as one of the most daring writers of her generation.

Originally published in 1990 to wide critical acclaim, this extraordinary first collection of stories by A. M. Homes confronts the real and the surreal on even terms to create a disturbing and sometimes hilarious vision of the American dream. Included here are "Adults Alone," in which a couple drops their kids off at Grandma's and gives themselves over to ten days of Nintendo, porn videos, and crack; "A Real Doll," in which a girl's blond Barbie doll seduces her teenaged brother; and "Looking for Johnny," in which a kidnapped boy, having failed to meet his abductor's expectations, is returned home. These stories, by turns satirical, perverse, unsettling, and utterly believable, expose the dangers of ordinary life even as their characters stay hidden behind the disguises they have so carefully created.

Обложка книги Sag Harbor Sag Harbor

 Автор: Colson Whitehead

 Жанр: Проза, Современная проза

The warm, funny, and supremely original new novel from one of the most acclaimed writers in America.The year is 1985. Benji Cooper is one of the only black students at an elite prep school in Manhattan. He spends his falls and winters going to roller-disco bar mitzvahs, playing too much Dungeons and Dragons, and trying to catch glimpses of nudity on late-night cable TV. After a tragic mishap on his first day of high school — when Benji reveals his deep enthusiasm for the horror movie magazine Fangoria — his social doom is sealed for the next four years.

But every summer, Benji escapes to the Hamptons, to Sag Harbor, where a small community of African American professionals have built a world of their own. Because their parents come out only on weekends, he and his friends are left to their own devices for three glorious months. And although he’s just as confused about this all-black refuge as he is about the white world he negotiates the rest of the year, he thinks that maybe this summer things will be different. If all goes according to plan, that is.

There will be trials and tribulations, of course. There will be complicated new handshakes to fumble through, and state-of-the-art profanity to master. He will be tested by contests big and small, by his misshapen haircut (which seems to have a will of its own), by the New Coke Tragedy of ’85, and by his secret Lite FM addiction. But maybe, with a little luck, things will turn out differently this summer.

In this deeply affectionate and fiercely funny coming-of-age novel, Whitehead — using the perpetual mortification of teenage existence and the desperate quest for reinvention — lithely probes the elusive nature of identity, both personal and communal.

Trois scénaristes et une romancière se retrouvent un matin dans le bureau du directeur d'une grande chaîne de télévision. Celui-ci va leur confier la rédaction d'une nouvelle série qu'ils devront entièrement créer. Ça commence un peu comme un conte de fée pour ces quatre écrivains plus ou moins ratés. Seulement ils apprennent très vite que la série n'existera que pour remplir les quotas minimums de fictions françaises sur la chaîne. Et donc qu'elle sera diffusée en plein milieu de la nuit. Pour nos quatre protagonistes la question de travailler " à blanc " ne se pose pas longtemps : ils ont besoin d'argent. En plus l'horaire de diffusion leur permet d'avoir toutes les libertés scénaristiques (à partir du moment où ça coûte le moins cher possible). Ce livre se déroule entre critique acerbe du milieu de la télévision et portrait attendrissant de quatre personnages complexes et troublants. Il pose également la question de la création artistique, de l'engagement que cela demande, de sa force et de sa faiblesse. Enfermés tous les quatre dans une pièce avec ordinateurs, télévisions, à se gaver de pizzas et de vodka poivrée, ils vont finir par créer une saga qui va finalement bouleverser leur vie. Ce livre passe par plusieurs étapes littéraires : on est tout d'abord dans le roman contemporain assez classique, avec des personnages un peu paumés mais sympathiques, puis petit à petit s'installe une analyse des coulisses de la télévision, on passe ensuite par une société décrite dans une certaine folie. Et on atteint la " surenchère ", dans une sorte d'histoire proche de la science fiction où la folie semble habiter tous les protagonistes. Vraiment un excellent livre, haletant, qui mène son lecteur de rebondissements en découvertes humaines époustouflantes !

“Sail of Stone is riveting-as hard and bleak as the Swedish coast in winter.” – Jeff Lindsay, creator of the Dexter series

A brother and sister believe that their father has gone missing. They think he may have traveled in search of his father, who was presumed lost decades ago in World War II. Meanwhile, there are reports that a woman is being abused, but she can’t be found and her family won’t tell the police where she is. Two missing people and two very different families combine in this dynamic and suspenseful mystery by the Swedish master Åke Edwardson.

Gothenburg’s Chief Inspector Erik Winter travels to Scotland in search of the missing man, aided there by an old friend from Scotland Yard. Back in Gothenburg, A fro-Swedish detective Aneta Djanali discovers how badly someone doesn’t want her to find the missing woman when she herself is threatened. Sail of Stone is a brilliantly perceptive character study, acutely observed and skillfully written with an unerring sense of pace.

“A tough, smart police procedural… Edwardson is a masterful stor yteller… This is crime writing at its most exciting, with great atmosphere and superb characters.” – The Globe Mail (Toronto) on Never End

Обложка книги Saint Leibowitz and the Wild Horse Woman Saint Leibowitz and the Wild Horse Woman

 Автор: Miller, Jr Walter Michael, Bisson Terry

 Серия: Saint Leibowitz

 Жанр: Фантастика, Научная Фантастика

It has been nearly forty years since Walter M. Miller, Jr., shocked and dazzled readers with his provocative bestseller and enduring classic, A Canticle for Leibowitz. Now, in one of the most eagerly awaited publishing events of our time, here is Miller’s masterpiece, an epic intellectual and emotional tour de force that will stand beside 1984, Brave New World, and A Canticle for Leibowitz.

In a world struggling to transcend a terrifying legacy of darkness—a world torn between love and violence, good and evil—one man undertakes an odyssey of adventure and discovery that promises to alter not only his destiny but the destiny of humankind as well….

Millennia have passed since the Flame Deluge, yet society remains fragmented, pockets of civilization besieged by barbarians. The Church is in turmoil, the exiled papacy struggling to survive in its Rocky Mountain refuge. To the south, tyranny is on the march. Imperial Texark troops, bent on conquest, are headed north into the lands of the nomads, spreading terror in their wake.

Meanwhile, isolated in Leibowitz Abbey, Brother Blacktooth St. George suffers a crisis of faith. Torn between his vows and his Nomad upbringing, between the Holy Virgin and visions of the Wild Horse Woman of his people, he stands at the brink of disgrace and expulsion from his order. But he is offered an escape—of sorts: a new assignment as a translator for Cardinal Brownpony, which will take him to the contentious election of a new pope and then on a pilgrimage to the city of New Rome. Journeying across a continent divided by nature, politics, and war, Blacktooth is drawn into Brownpony’s intrigues and conspiracies. He bears witness to rebellion, assassination, and human sacrifice. And he is introduced to the sins that monastery life has long held at bay.

This introduction comes in the form of Ædrea, a beautiful but forbidden “genny” living among the deformed and mutant castouts in Texark’s most hostile terrain. As Blacktooth encounters her again and again on his travels—in the flesh, in rumors of miraculous deeds, and in the delirium of fever—he begins to wonder if Ædrea is a she-devil, the Holy Mother, or the Wild Horse Woman herself.

Picaresque and passionate, magnificent, dark, and compellingly real, Saint Leibowitz and the Wild Horse Woman is a brutal, brilliant, thrilling tale of mystery, mysticism, and divine madness, a classic that will long endure in every reader’s memory.

Обложка книги Saint Mazie Saint Mazie

 Автор: Attenberg Jami

 Жанр: Проза, Современная проза

Meet Mazie Phillips: big-hearted and bawdy, she's the truth-telling proprietress of The Venice, the famed New York City movie theater. It's the Jazz Age, with romance and booze aplenty-even when Prohibition kicks in-and Mazie never turns down a night on the town. But her high spirits mask a childhood rooted in poverty, and her diary, always close at hand, holds her dearest secrets.

When the Great Depression hits, Mazie's life is on the brink of transformation. Addicts and bums roam the Bowery; homelessness is rampant. If Mazie won't help them, then who? When she opens the doors of The Venice to those in need, this ticket-taking, fun-time girl becomes the beating heart of the Lower East Side, and in defining one neighborhood helps define the city.

Then, more than ninety years after Mazie began her diary, it's discovered by a documentarian in search of a good story. Who was Mazie Phillips, really? A chorus of voices from the past and present fill in some of the mysterious blanks of her adventurous life.

Inspired by the life of a woman who was profiled in Joseph Mitchell's classic Up in the Old Hotel, Saint Mazie is infused with Jami Attenberg's signature wit, bravery, and heart. Mazie's rise to "sainthood"-and her irrepressible spirit-is unforgettable.
