(P/B) WE
Εκδότης: ALMA BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0045-0072

WE takes place in a distant future, where humans are forced to submit their wills to the requirements of the state, under the rule of the all-powerful Benefactor, and dreams are regarded as a sign of mental illness. In a city of straight lines, protected by green walls and a glass dome, a spaceship is being built in order to spearhead the conquest of new planets. Its chief engineer, a man called D-503, keeps a journal of his life and activities: to his mathematical mind everything seems to make sense and proceed as it should, until a chanc...

(P/B) THE DEVIL'S DICTIONARY
THE COMPLETE EDITION, FULLY ANNOTATED
Εκδότης: ALMA BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0045-0113

A celebrated journalist in his lifetime, Ambrose Bierce was the author of sardonic, mischievous definitions of words that appeared in various San Francisco newspapers. Over several years these were compiled for a mock dictionary, originally published in 1906 as The Cynic's Word Book and reissued in an expanded version as The Devil's Dictionary in 1911. One of the most popular satirical works of world literature, The Devil's Dictionary - here enriched with over 800 definitions left out from the original publications - brilliantly lays bare ...

(P/B) ULYSSES
Εκδότης: ALMA BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0045-0082

Controversial, scandalous, erudite and funny, Ulysses is undisputedly a landmark of twentieth-century modernism. It charts one day - 16th June 1904 - in the lives of three inhabitants of Dublin: the advertising salesman Leopold Bloom, the artist Stephen Dedalus and Bloom's wife Molly. Their peregrinations, thoughts and encounters form the basis of the narrative, which becomes a celebration of all human experience through the lives of specific individuals in a specific place at a specific time. Ulysses is both an experimental novel and a bo...

(P/B) THE LIFE OF MONSIEUR DE MOLIERE
Εκδότης: ALMA BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0045-0095

Written in 1932, but not published until 1962, over twenty years after its author's death, The Life of Monsieur de Moliere charts the life of the French playwright, from his humble beginnings to later theatrical triumphs and political controversies. The work was met with disapproval by the Soviet authorities, who detected parallels between the lives of Moliere and Bulgakov, and viewed the work as a veiled critique of their own times. With a dazzling blend of biography and novelistic imagination, Bulgakov's eccentric and satirical take on t...

(P/B) DIABOLIAD
Εκδότης: ALMA BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0045-0050

In Bulgakov's "Diaboliad", the modest and unassuming office clerk Korotkov is summarily sacked for a trifling error from his job at the First Central Depot for the Materials for Matches, and tries to seek out his newly assigned superior Kalsoner, responsible for his dismissal. His quest through the labyrinth of Soviet bureaucracy takes on the increasingly surreal dimensions of a nightmare. This early satirical story, reminiscent of Gogol and Dostoevsky, was first published in 1924 and incurred the wrath of pro-Soviet critics. Along with th...

The result, an eight-volume collection comprising around 600 stories, is one of the most influential and enduringly popular books in Russian literature.
