(P/B) JOURNEY TO THE END OF THE NIGHT
Εκδότης: ALMA BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0045-0061

First published in 1932, Journey to the End of the Night was immediately acclaimed as a masterpiece and a turning point in French literature. Told in the first person by Celine's fictional alter ego Bardamu, the novel is loosely based on the author's own experiences during the First World War, in French colonial Africa, in the USA and, later, as a young doctor in a working-class suburb in Paris. Celine's disgust with human folly, malice, greed and the chaotic state in which man has left society lies behind the bitterness that distinguishes...

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 ...

As each character tries to readjust their memories and emotions with the shifts of time and reality, this long-delayed excursion will also prove to be a journey of self-discovery and fulfilment for them.

(P/B) LYRICS (VOLUME 1)
1813-1817
Εκδότης: ALMA BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0045-0099

The founding father of modern Russian literature, Alexander Pushkin has exerted - through his novel in verse Eugene Onegin, his plays, his short stories and his narrative poetry - a long-lasting influence well beyond the borders of his motherland. A slightly lesser-known, but by no mean less important aspect of his writing is his vast production of shorter verse, a genre at which he excelled and arguably still remains unsurpassed. This volume, part of Alma's series of the complete poetic works of Alexander Pushkin, collects the poems Pushk...

(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...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0045-0067

Although ranging considerably in tone, mood and milieu, the fifteen short stories included in this collection all centre around the city of Dublin and its inhabitants at the beginning of the twentieth century. From the unsettling adventure of two truant schoolboys to the crafty schemes of two con men, from a young woman's refusal to abandon Ireland and elope with a sailor to a man's moment of clarity during an annual dance party, these stories offer a moving portrait of an entire world and era which are about to disappear. James Joyce's fi...

(P/B) ANNA KARENINA
Εκδότης: ALMA BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0045-0027

Leo Tolstoy's most personal novel, Anna Karenina scrutinizes fundamental ethical and theological questions through the tragic story of its eponymous heroine. Anna is desperately pursuing a good, "moral" life, standing for honesty and sincerity. Passion drives her to adultery, and this flies in the face of the corrupt Russian bourgeoisie. Meanwhile, the aristocrat Konstantin Levin is struggling to reconcile reason with passion, espousing a Christian anarchism that Tolstoy himself believed in. Acclaimed by critics and readers alike, Anna Kar...
