(P/B) PARIS FRANCE
Εκδότης: PETER OWEN
Εξαντλημένο στον εκδότη, δεν υπάρχει δυνατότητα παραγγελίας.

Gertrude Stein lived in Paris from 1903. With her brother Leo she acted as patron for a number of soon-to-be famous artists, most notably Pablo Picasso. Published in 1940, on the day that Paris fell to the Germans, Paris France blends Stein's childhood memories of Paris with trenchant observations about everything French. It is a witty fricass?e of food and fashion, pets and painters, musicians, friends and artists, served up with a healthy garnish of Steinien humour and self-indulgence. For readers who have previously considered Gertrude ...

(H/B) SILENCE
Εκδότης: PETER OWEN
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

A special hardback edition of Shusaku Endo's masterpiece Silence to mark the release of Martin Scorsese's screen adaptation starring Liam Neeson, Adam Driver and Andrew Garfield. In 1637 two Portuguese missionaries undertake a perilous search for their tutor missing on the hostile island of Japan.

(P/B) THE ANTICHRIST
Εκδότης: PETER OWEN
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

While the rest of Joseph Roth's oeuvre has been made available to the English-speaking world in recent years, this new translation by Richard Panchyk - a distant relative of Roth - will redress the historical absence of such a key, neglected work in the Roth canon. Roth penned and published The Antichrist during the first years of his exile from his homeland, and an English translation was published in London, in 1935 by William Heinemann. The Antichrist's singularity amongst Joseph Roth's work stems both from the urgency that courses thro...

(P/B) SCANDAL
Εκδότης: PETER OWEN
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Suguro is an eminent Catholic novelist, about to receive a major literary award. So when a drunk woman he has never met before approaches him at the award ceremony, claiming she knows him well from his regular visits to Tokyo's red-light district, she must surely be mistaken? But with a scurrilous press campaign damaging Suguro's reputation, his sleazy doppelganger appears more and more, as if deliberately trying to discredit him. He is sighted touring the love hotels and brothels of Shinjuku; a leering portrait of him appears in an exhibi...

(P/B) THE THREE-CORNERED WORLD
Εκδότης: PETER OWEN
Εξαντλημένο στον εκδότη, δεν υπάρχει δυνατότητα παραγγελίας.

‘Walking up a mountain track, I fell to thinking. Approach everything rationally, and you become harsh. Pole along in the stream of emotions, and you will be swept away by the current. Give free rein to your desires, and you become uncomfortably confined. It is not a very agreeable place to live, this world of ours.’ - Natsume Soseki, The Three-Cornered World. Opening with the most famous introductory lines in Japanese literature, The Three Cornered World has been cherished by generations of readers as a glittering jewel in the crown of S...

(P/B) CONFESSIONS OF A MASK
Εκδότης: PETER OWEN
Εξαντλημένο στον εκδότη, δεν υπάρχει δυνατότητα παραγγελίας.

This autobiographical novel, regarded as Mishima's finest book, is the haunting story of a Japanese boy's development toward a homosexual identity during and after the Second World War. Detailing his progress from an isolated childhood through adolescence to manhood, including an abortive love affair with a classmate's sister, it reports the inner life of a boy's preoccupation with death. This fourth reprint attests to the power of the novel's enduring themes of fantasy, despair and alienation. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) NARCISSUS AND GOLDMUND
Εκδότης: PETER OWEN
Εξαντλημένο στον εκδότη, δεν υπάρχει δυνατότητα παραγγελίας.

Narcissus is a teacher at Mariabronn, a monastery in medieval Germany, and Goldmund his favourite pupil. While Narcissus remains detached from the world in prayer and meditation, Goldmund runs away from the monstery in pursuit of love. Thereafter he lives a picaresque wanderer's life, his amatory adventures resulting in pain as well as ecstasy. His eventual reunion with Narcissus brings into focus the diversity between artist and thinker, Dionysian and Apollonian. This new edition features a foreword from the musician and artist Graham Cox...

(P/B) WONDERFUL FOOL
Εκδότης: PETER OWEN
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Gaston Bonaparte, a young Frenchman, visits Tokyo to stay with his pen-friend Takamori. His appearance is a bitter disappointment to his new friends and his behaviour causes them acute embarrassment. He is a trusting person with a simple love for others and continues to trust even after they have demonstrated deceit and betrayal. He spends his time not sightseeing but making friends with street children, stray dogs, prostitutes and gangsters. Endo charts his misadventures with sharp irony, satire and objectivity.

(P/B) THE DEMANDING DEAD
Εκδότης: PETER OWEN
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

With eight outstanding ghost stories by one of the finest writers in the genre, The Demanding Dead is an absorbing collection of tales from Edith Wharton's fertile imagination. Like her mentor Henry James, Wharton had the ability to switch genres seemingly without effort.The Demanding Dead highlights a lesser-known side of Wharton's writing. The same literary genius evident in her famous works such as The Age of Innocence, Ethan Frome and The House of Mirth is here dedicated to giving the reader a damned good scare. Stories such as 'Kerfol...

Εκδότης: PETER OWEN
Δεν είναι διαθέσιμο αυτή τη στιγμή. Υπό την προϋπόθεση ύπαρξης αποθέματος στον εκδότη εξωτερικού, αποστέλλεται σε 3-5 εβδομάδες.

The Silent Prophet is the result of Joseph Roth's visit to Moscow in 1926 when speculation about the fate of Trotsky was rife. Roth refered to this work as his 'Trotsky novel', but the experiences of the book's hero, the Trotsky-like Friederich Kargan, are as recognisably those of a less well-known Jewish outsider, a perpetual exile searching for a place in the new Europe and a set of values to counter his own scepticism and growing disallusionment - Joseph Roth himself. Because he is born illegitimate, Friederich Kargan lacks even a socia...

Εκδότης: PETER OWEN
Δεν είναι διαθέσιμο αυτή τη στιγμή. Υπό την προϋπόθεση ύπαρξης αποθέματος στον εκδότη εξωτερικού, αποστέλλεται σε 3-5 εβδομάδες.

Marc Chagall's strange autobiographical essay on his early life has established itself as a unique document in twentieth-century literature. Completed by the artist in 1922, this memoir was not available in English until Peter Owen published this translation in 1965, and it has remained in print ever since. Lyrical and evocative, it is a key work in Chagall studies for the light it throws on the shaping of the artist's creative genius. His deep roots in Jewish tradition - religious and secular - are reflected in these recollections of his ...

Εξαντλημένο στον εκδότη, δεν υπάρχει δυνατότητα παραγγελίας.

Silence is the most important novel of the acclaimed Japanese author Shusaku Endo. It caused a major controversy in Japan following its publication in 1967. A Japanese Catholic, Endo tells the story of two seventeenth-century missionaries attempting to shore up the oppressed Japanese Christian movement. Father Rodrigues has come to Japan to find the truth behind unthinkable rumours that his famous teacher Ferreira has renounced his faith. But after his arrival he discovers that the only way to help the brutally persecuted Christians may be...

(P/B) DEMIAN
Εκδότης: PETER OWEN
Εξαντλημένο στον εκδότη, δεν υπάρχει δυνατότητα παραγγελίας.

Published shortly after the First World War, Demian is considered to be one of Hermann Hesse's finest novels. Emil Sinclair boasts of a theft that he has not committed and subsequently finds himself blackmailed by a bully. He turns to Max Demian, in whom he finds a friend and spiritual mentor. This strangely self-possessed figure is able to lure him out of his ordinary home-life and convince him of an existing alternative world of corruption and evil. He progressing from an orthodox education through to philosophical mysticism, Emil's sear...

THE OFFICIAL AUTOBIOGRAPHY
Εκδότης: PETER OWEN
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Edith Piaf's life is almost as famous as her work. With the fortieth anniversary of her death currently being celebrated with a major retrospective in Paris, Piaf-mania is at an all-time high. Peter Owen has again acquired the rights to the official autobiography of the singer. Our previous Piaf book, My Life, which is now unavailable, recently completely sold out a second print run. From her birth (in the Parisian streets, her mother shielded by two gendarmes) to her death (when her husband allegedly drove her corpse from the hospital whe...

POEMS
Εκδότης: PETER OWEN
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

The life of Boris Pasternak culminated in the publication of his successful novel Doctor Zhivago, and his being awarded the 1958 Nobel Prize for Literature, an award he did not accept. In this collected volume of Pasternak's poetry Andrei Navrozov seeks to transport the English-language reader into the Russian poet's mysterious lyric universe. Both inventive and exact, the poems in Second Nature are inspired by life and scenery from the natural world. Unavailable for some time, Second Nature has been acclaimed by leading Pasternak scholars...

Weights and Measures was the third Roth novel to be translated into English and one of the last he wrote, as he drank himself to death in unhappy exile in France. It is a fable about the disintegration of a good man. At the insistence of his wife, Eibenschutz leaves his job as an artilleryman in the Austro-Hungarian army for a civilian job as the Inspector of Weights and Measures in a remote territory near the Russian border. Attempting to exercise some proper rectitude in his trade duties he is at a loss in a world of smugglers, profiteer...

Δεν είναι διαθέσιμο αυτή τη στιγμή. Υπό την προϋπόθεση ύπαρξης αποθέματος στον εκδότη εξωτερικού, αποστέλλεται σε 3-5 εβδομάδες.

The Political Prisoner has its autobiographical roots in Pavese's own arrest and imprisonment in Calabria for his writings in the anti-fascist magazine La Cultura. This story describes the day to day life of Stefano, an anti-fascist who has served a prison sentence and is banished to a remote southern Italian seaside resort where he awaits an official pardon. Pavese describes the monotony, the grimness and the sensuality of life in the village through the eyes of a man who realises his habits have been broken. When the summer ends Stefano ...

Sergei Eisenstein (1898-1948), creator of such masterpieces as Battleship Potemkin, Alexander Nevsky and Ivan the Terrible, was perhaps the greatest of all film directors. He wrote his autobiography in 1946, two years before his death, and it is a work of major importance in the light it sheds on his personality and mercurial genius. Vivid, eccentric and free-ranging, Immoral Memories is written in a style reminiscent of the brilliant visual effects of montage and dynamic progression that characterize its author's film-making technique. He...

Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Isabelle Eberhardt's life was one of the most extraordinary of any writer's of the last 150 years. Daughter of a Russian Nihilist who forbade her any contact with society, dressed her as a man and insisted her education consisted of hard physical labour, she, perhaps unsurprisingly, ran away to North Africa in 1897, aged twenty. There she travelled through the Sahara and became one of the few white women ever to have been initiated into Sufism. She also produced a small but exceptional body of writing. The Oblivion Seekers is a selection o...

In 1613, four low-ranking Japanese Samurai, accompanied by a Spanish priest, set sail for Mexico on an unprecedented mission: to bargain for a Catholic crusade through Japan in exchange for trading rights with the West. Among the first Japanese ever to set foot in Europe, they travel to Rome and gain an audience with the Pope. All are baptized, hoping to curry favour with their European hosts. But upon returning to Japan, they discover that the Shoguns no longer wish to forge links with the West, nor will they tolerate the Christian religi...
