(P/B) SOMETHING WILL HAPPEN, YOU'LL SEE
BY CHRISTOS IKONOMOU
Εκδότης: ARCHIPELAGO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5043-0009

Something Will Happen, You'll See is a heart-wrenching elegy on the impoverished working-class Greeks populating the neighborhoods around Piraeus, the large port southwest of Athens. Ikonomou's luminous and poignant short stories center around laid-off steelworkers, warehousemen, families, pensioners, and young couples faced with sudden loss and turmoil. Between docks, in tenement buildings, and on city streets Ikonomou's men and women sustain their traumas on flickers of hope in the darkness and on their deep faith in humanity. An illumin...

(P/B) MILTOS SACHTOURIS POEMS (1945-1971)
Εκδότης: ARCHIPELAGO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5043-0014

Karen Emmerich's poignant, eloquent versions of Sachtouris reveal not only the disturbing intensity of the original but also a remarkable diction and poetic pacing of her own. - HAROLD BLOOM I would say, 'Cut these poems and they'll bleed,' but they are already bleeding - a poet's evidence of world and civil wars, a military junta and dictatorship. We might call these poems noir, in which the poet manages to fashion a bloody and beautiful reflection of strange times. In this important translation, each poem is a house made of flesh, and w...

(P/B) BLINDING
Εκδότης: ARCHIPELAGO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5043-0002

Part visceral dream-memoir, part fictive journey through a hallucinatory Bucharest, Mircea Cartarescu's Blinding was one of the most widely heralded literary sensations in contemporary Romania, and a bestseller from the day of its release. Riddled with hidden passageways, mesmerizing tapestries, and whispering butterflies, Blinding takes us on a mystical trip into the protagonist's childhood, his memories of hospitalization as a teenager, the prehistory of his family, a travelling circus, Secret police, zombie armies, American fighter pilo...

(P/B) VULTURE IN A CAGE
Εκδότης: ARCHIPELAGO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5043-0012

Named after Solomon Ibn Gabirol's own sharp self-description, Vulture in a Cage is the most extensive collection of the 11th century Hebrew poet's works ever to be published in English. Weighty poems of praise, lament, and complaint sit alongside devotional poetry, love poetry, descriptive meditations on nature, and epigrams. Obsessed with the impediments of the body and the material world, Ibn Gabirol ambitiously dreamed of breaking through corporeal constraints and launching his soul into the realm of the intellect. Ibn Gabirol created a...

(P/B) DIARY OF EXILE
Εκδότης: ARCHIPELAGO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5043-0000

Yannis Ritsos is a poet whose writing life is entwined with the contemporary history of his homeland. Nowhere is this more apparent than in this volume, which presents a series of three diaries in poetry that Ritsos wrote between 1948 and 1950, during and just after the Greek Civil War, while a political prisoner first on the island of Limnos and then at the infamous camp on Makronisos. Even in this darkest of times, Ritsos dedicated his days to poetry, trusting in writing and in art as collective endeavors capable of resisting oppression ...

(P/B) KONUNDRUM
SELECTED PROSE
Εκδότης: ARCHIPELAGO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5043-0008

In this new selection and translation, Peter Wortsman mines Franz Kafka's entire opus of short prose - including works published in the author's brief lifetime, stories published posthumously, journals, and letters - for narratives that sound the imaginative depths of the great German-Jewish scribe from Prague. It is the first volume in English to consider his deeply strange, resonantly humane letters and journal entries alongside his classic short fiction and lyrical vignettes. "Transformed" is a vivid retranslation of one of Kafka's sign...

(P/B) BOOK OF MY MOTHER
Εκδότης: ARCHIPELAGO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5043-0003

Shortly after Albert Cohen left France for London to escape the Nazis, he received news of his mother's death in Marseille. Unable to mourn her, he expressed his grief in a series of moving pieces for "La France libre", which later grew into "Book of My Mother". Achingly honest, intimate, and moving, this love song is a tribute to all mothers. Cohen himself expressed, "I shall not have written in vain if one of you, after reading my hymn of death, is one evening gentler with his mother because of me and my mother." (From the publisher)...

(P/B) MOSCOW IN THE PLAGUE YEAR
POEMS
Εκδότης: ARCHIPELAGO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5043-0001

Representing some of Tsvetaeva's most remarkable work, this collection of poems, written during the years of the Moscow famine and the Russian Revolution of 1917, is suffused with biting irony and vibrant imagery. Frequently invoking images of resistance, Tsvetaeva approaches female resilience with sustained strength and an infectious sense of humor. "For a woman," she observes, "God is the equivalent of an aging husband." Deeply admired by Rainer Maria Rilke and Vladimir Nabokov, Tsvetaeva is widely considered one of the most important po...

(P/B) THE FLYING CREATURES OF FRA ANGELICO
Εκδότης: ARCHIPELAGO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5043-0005

Written by Antonio Tabucchi, one of the most renowned voices in European literature and the foremost Italian writer of his generation, this sublimely questioning, superbly imaginative collection of fragments and quasi-stories moves from impression to association to conjecture. The reader meets a delicate flying creature of ambiguous species - replete with feathers in ochre, yellow, deep blue, and emerald green - in Fra Angelico's vegetable garden; and a revolutionary who is told her incredible future by Mademoiselle Lenormand, a fortune te...

(P/B) TRANQUILITY
Εκδότης: ARCHIPELAGO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5043-0007

Tranquility is a living seismograph of the internal quakes and ruptures of a mother and son trapped within an Oedipal nightmare amidst the suffocating totalitarian embrace of Communist Hungary. Andor Weer, a thirty-six-year-old writer, lives in a small apartment with his shut-in mother, Rebeka, who was once among the most celebrated stage actresses in Budapest. Unable to withstand her maniacal tyranny but afraid to leave her alone, their bitter interdependence spirals into a Sartrian hell of hatred, lies, and appeasement. Then, Andor meets...

(P/B) THE EXPEDITION TO THE BAOBAB TREE
Εκδότης: ARCHIPELAGO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5043-0004

In J.M.Coetzee's stunning translation: a powerfully symbolic story in the voice of a slave that explores the depths of imagination, isolation, fear, and love. A slave woman is the only survivor of a failed expedition into the depths of Southern Africa. She shelters in the hollow trunk of a baobab tree where she relives her earlier existence in a state of increasing isolation. We are the sole witnesses to her moving history: her capture as a young child, her life in a harbor city on the eastern coast as servant to various masters, her journ...

(P/B) MAMA LEONE
Εκδότης: ARCHIPELAGO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5043-0006

The Croatian writer Miljenko Jergovic, whose remarkable debut collection of stories, Sarajevo Marlboro - winner of the Erich Maria Remarque Peace Prize - was published by Archipelago, has created a masterful collection of linked stories that draws the reader into a precocious boy's episodic, personal recounting of his war-torn homeland and childhood. Dazzling, rhapsodic, and above all compassionate, these linked stories, deeply rooted in place and history, break down stereotypes and humanize a complex cultural conflict. (From the publisher...

(P/B) STROKE BY STROKE
WITH ORIGINAL INK DRAWINGS BY HENRI MICHAUX
Εκδότης: ARCHIPELAGO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5043-0010

Stroke by Stroke is a pairing of two of Henri Michaux's most suggestive texts, Par des traits (Stroke by Stroke, 1984) and Saisir (Grasp, 1979), written toward the end of his life. The author's idiogrammic ink drawings accompany his poetic explorations of animals, humans, and the origins of language. These texts work at the borders of word and image, interior and exterior, sacred and mundane. In a series of verbal/pictorial gestures at once explosive and contemplative, Michaux emerges at his most Zen. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) BACACAY
Εκδότης: ARCHIPELAGO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 5043-0013

First published in 1957 in Poland, Bacacay is a collection of twelve short stories by Witold Gombrowicz (1904-1968), one of the major European literary figures of the 20th century. Stunningly original in both style and content, these stories are often hilarious yet with an undercurrent of profound moral disquiet and horror when the respectable turns slowly but inexorably into the outrageous, conveying both the horrors of upper-class life and the deepest anguish of the human condition. (From the publisher) Grotesque, erotic, and often hila...
