(H/B) QUICHOTTE
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0135

In a tour-de-force that is both an homage to an immortal work of literature and a modern masterpiece about the quest for love and family, Booker Prize-winning, internationally bestselling author Salman Rushdie has created a dazzling Don Quixote for the modern age. Inspired by the Cervantes classic, Sam DuChamp, mediocre writer of spy thrillers, creates Quichotte, a courtly, addled salesman obsessed with television, who falls in impossible love with the TV star Salman R. Together with his (imaginary) son Sancho, Quichotte sets off on a pica...

(P/B) AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF RED
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0037

In this extraordinary epic poem, Anne Carson bridges the gap between classicism and the modern, poetry and prose, with a volcanic journey into the soul of a winged red monster named Geryon. There is a strong mixture of whimsy and sadness in Geryon's story. He is tormented as a boy by his brother, escapes to a parallel world of photography, and falls in love with Herakles - a golden young man who leaves Geryon at the peak of infatuation. Geryon retreats ever further into the world created by his camera, until that glass house is suddenly a...

(P/B) THE BEAUTY OF THE HUSBAND
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0041

Since Glass and God, which was her first full-length collection published in Britain and which was nominated for the 1998 Forward Prize, Anne Carson has published a book a year to extraordinary critical acclaim. Her last two volumes, Autobiography of Red and Men in the Off Hours were both shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize, and she has received numerous North American awards, including the prestigious MacArthur Fellowship. In her brilliant new book, she tells a single story. A long-time love, now a crumbling marriage, unfolds in 29 'tang...

(P/B) GHOST WORLD
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0011

In the story of ENID and REBECA, teenage friends facing the unwelcome prospect of adulthood, and the uncertain future of their relationship. Clowes conjures a balanced semblance, both tender and objective, of their fragile existence, capturing the mundane thrills and hourly tragedies of a waning adolescence, as he follows a tenuous narrative thread through the fragmented lives of these two fully realized young women. (from the publisher)...

(H/B) BLACK HOLE
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0025

And you thought your adolescence was scary. Suburban Seattle, the mid-1970s. We learn from the outset that a strange plague has descended upon the area's teenagers, transmitted by sexual contact. The disease is manifested any number of ways - from the hideously grotesque to the subtle (and concealable) - but once you've got it, that's it. There's no turning back. As we inhabit the heads of several key characters - some kids who have it, some who don't, some who are about to get it - what unfolds isn't the expected battle to fight the plagu...

(P/B) FUN HOME
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0061

One of the most eagerly anticipated graphic memoirs of recent years, Fun Home is a darkly funny family tale, pitch-perfectly illustrated with Alison Bechdel's sweetly gothic drawings. Like Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, it's a story exhilaratingly suited to graphic memoir form. Meet Alison's father, a historic preservation expert and obsessive restorer of the family's Victorian home, a third-generation funeral home director, a high-school English teacher, an icily distant parent, and a closeted homosexual who, as it turns out, is involved w...

(H/B) CHICKEN WITH PLUMS
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0033

In her acclaimed Persepolis books and in Embroideries. Marjane Satrapi rendered the events of her life and times in a uniquely captivating and powerful voice and vision. Now she turns that same keen eye and ear to the heartrending story of her great-uncle, a celebrated Iranian musician who gave up his life for music and love. We are in Tehran in 1958, and Nasser Ali Khan, one of Iran's most revered tar players, discovers that his beloved instrument is irreparably damaged. Though he tries, he cannot find one to replace it, one whose sound s...

(P/B) GLASS AND GOD
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0094

Anne Carson is the most original, most uniquely gifted poet to have appeared in the past decade. Her first full-length publication in Britain, Glass, Irony and God introduces an assured and challenging new voice: vivid, laconic and precise. Her 'Short Talks' are about everything from Sylvia Plath to Franz Kafka, from waterproofing to walking backwards; the brilliant long poem 'The Glass Essay' deals with the end of a comtemporary love affair, but is haunted by the Bronte sisters. Blending the modern and the classical, Anne Carson writes wi...

(H/B) PATIENCE
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0115

Patience is an indescribable psychedelic science-fiction love story, veering with uncanny precision from violent destruction to deeply personal tenderness in a way that is both quintessentially 'Clowesian', and utterly unique in the author's body of work. This 180-page, full-colour story affords Clowes the opportunity to draw some of the most exuberant and breathtaking pages of his life, and to tell his most suspenseful, surprising and affecting story yet. The story opens in 2012, when Jack Barlow, returns home to find Patience, his pregna...

(P/B) FLOAT
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0119

Anne Carson dazzles us, book after book, with her inventiveness, her ranging imagination, and the way her work utterly changes our perspectives. With Float, she goes further still: exploring myth and memory, beauty and loss, all the while playing with - and pushing - the limits of language and form. Within this beautifully designed box, there are twelve individual booklets that can be read in any order: conjuring a mix of voices, time periods and structures to explore what makes people, memories, and stories 'maddeningly attractive' when o...

(H/B) BLUETS
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0130

Bluets winds its way through depression, divinity, alcohol, and desire, visiting along the way with famous blue figures, including Joni Mitchell, Billie Holiday, Yves Klein, Leonard Cohen and Andy Warhol. While its narrator sets out to construct a sort of 'pillow book' about her lifelong obsession with the colour blue, she ends up facing down both the painful end of an affair and the grievous injury of a dear friend. The combination produces a raw, cerebral work devoted to the inextricability of pleasure and pain, and to the question of wh...

(H/B) THE HANDMAID'S TALE
THE GRAPHIC NOVEL
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0139

Provocative, startling, prophetic, and more relevant than ever, The Handmaid's Tale has become a global phenomenon. Now, in this stunning graphic novel edition of Margaret Atwood's modern classic, the terrifying reality of Gilead is brought to vivid life like never before. "Everything Handmaids wear is red: the colour of blood, which defines us." Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead, where women are prohibited from holding jobs, reading, and forming friendships. She serves in the household of the Commander and his wife, and under...

(P/B) FOOTNOTES IN GAZA
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0141

Rafah, a town at the southernmost tip of the Gaza Strip, is a squalid place. Raw concrete buildings front rubbish-strewn alleys. The narrow streets are crowded with young children and unemployed men. Situated on the border with Egypt, swaths of Rafah have been reduced to rubble. Rafah is today and has always been a notorious flashpoint in this most bitter of conflicts. Buried deep in the archives is one bloody incident, in 1956, that left 111 Palestinian refugees dead, shot by Israeli soldiers. Seemingly a footnote to a long history of kil...

(EXPORT EDITION)
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0140

LONGLISTED FOR THE WOMEN'S PRIZE 2020 From the Booker-winning Irish author, a brilliant and moving novel about fame, sexual power, and a daughter's search to understand her mother's hidden truths. This is the story of Irish theatre legend Katherine O'Dell, as told by her daughter Norah. It tells of early stardom in Hollywood, of highs and lows on the stages of Dublin and London's West End.

(H/B) ON EARTH WE'RE BRIEFLY GORGEOUS
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0142

Brilliant, heartbreaking and highly original, Ocean Vuong's debut novel is a shattering portrait of a family, and a testament to the redemptive power of storytelling. This is a letter from a son to a mother who cannot read. Written when the speaker, Little Dog, is in his late twenties, the letter unearths a family's history that began before he was born. It tells of Vietnam, of the lasting impact of war, and of his family's struggle to forge a new future. And it serves as a doorway into parts of Little Dog's life his mother has never known...

(P/B) DECREATION
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0040

In her first collection in five years, Anne Carson contemplates 'decreation' - an activity described by Simone Weil as 'undoing the creature in us' - an undoing of self. But how can we undo self without moving through self, to the very inside of its definition? Where else can we start? Anne Carson's Decreation starts with form - the undoing of form. Form is various here: opera libretto, screenplay, poem, oratorio, essay, list, montage. The undoing is tender, but tenderness can change everything, or so the author appears to believe. By turn...

(H/B) PERSEPOLIS
THE STORY OF AN IRANIAN CHILDHOOD
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0017

Wise, often funny, sometimes heartbreaking, Persepolis tells the story of Marjane Satrapi's life in Tehran from the ages of six to fourteen, years that saw the overthrow of the Shah's regime, the triumph of the Islamic Revolution and the devastating effects of war with Iraq. The intelligent and outspoken child of radical Marxists, and the great-grandaughter of Iran's last emperor, Satrapi bears witness to a childhood uniquely entwined with the history of her country. Persepolis paints an unforgettable portrait of daily life in Iran and of ...

(P/B) EMBROIDERIES
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0060

Embroideries gathers together many of the women in Marjane Satrapi's life - her beloved grandmother, her mother, an eccentric aunt, their friends and neighbours - for an afternoon of tea-drinking and talking. And as is only to be expected when a group of women reunite around cups of tea, the subjects turn to love, sex and the vagaries of men - in this case, Iranian men. As the afternoon progresses, these colourful women share their secrets about, among other things: how to fake your virginity, how to escape the husband your family has chos...

(P/B) DIFFICULT WOMEN
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0143

Well-behaved women don't make history: difficult women do. Feminism's success is down to complicated, contradictory, imperfect women, who fought each other as well as fighting for equal rights. Helen Lewis argues that too many of these pioneers have been whitewashed or forgotten in our modern search for feel-good, inspirational heroines. It's time to reclaim the history of feminism as a history of difficult women. In this book, you'll meet the working-class suffragettes who advocated bombings and arson; the princess who discovered why so m...

(H/B) PERSEPOLIS 2
Εκδότης: JONATHAN CAPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3977-0018

In Persepolis, heralded by the Guardian as a 'touching, funny, illuminating memoir' and the Sunday Telegraph as a 'stylish, clever and moving weapon of mass destruction', Marjane Satrapi dazzled us with her heart-rending memoir-in-comic-strips about growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. Here is the continuation of her fascinating story. In 1984, Marjane flees fundamentalism and the war with Iraq to begin a new life in Vienna. Once there, our young heroine faces the trials of adolescence far from her friends and family, surround...
