(P/B) ON THE END OF THE WORLD
Εκδότης: PUSHKIN PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3226-0077

In January 1933, on the very day Hitler seized power in Germany, Joseph Roth fled to Paris. There, in what he called the 'hour before the end of the world', he wrote a series of articles. The end he foresaw would soon come to pass in the full horror of Hitler's barbarism, the Second World War and most crucially for Roth, the final irreversible destruction of a pan-European consciousness. Incisive and ironic, the writing evokes Roth's bitterness, frustration and morbid despair at the coming annihilation of the free world while displaying h...

(P/B) SIXTY-NINE
Εκδότης: PUSHKIN PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3226-0048

Murakami's 69, a side-splittingly funny coming-of-age novel set in the Japan of the sixties. In a small, inconsequential city in Japan, all that matters to 17-year-old Kensuke Yazaki and his friends is girls, rock music and, to a much lesser extent, school. Told at high speed and with irresistible humour by Kensuke himself, this is the story of their 1969, as they engage in heated conversations about Marxism, Rimbaud, Godard, the Beatles and the Stones, set up a barricade in their school, organise a rock festival and map out a highly succe...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3226-0094

Named after one of Iceland's most magnificent volcanoes, Hekla always knew she wanted to be a writer.

She decides to try her luck in Reykjavik, and moves in with her friend Jon, a gay man who longs to work in the theatre, but can only find dangerous, backbreaking work on fishing trawlers. Hekla's opportunities are equally limited: mar...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3226-0102

Enchanting fresh translations of the finest stories by the great Brazilian author Machado de Assis. Machado de Assis is one of the most fascinating, enigmatic story writers who ever lived. By turns coolly elegant and mischievously dark, his stories drift imperceptibly from stately social satires into surreal, disconcerting terrain. This new selection of his finest shorter works, translated by the prize-winning Daniel Hahn, showcases the many facets of this mercurial genius. With sublime irony and wit, Machado quietly undoes the certainties...

"The time provides the pictures, I merely speak the words to go with them, and it will not be so much my own story I tell as that of an entire generation - our unique generation, carrying a heavier burden of fate than almost any other in the course of history." During his lifetime, Stefan Zweig's (1881-1942) works were immensely popular and widely translated. In the decades after his death, he was largely forgotten in the English-speaking world. Recent years, however, have witnessed a resurgence of interest in this singular author, and Pus...

Although best known for his monumental novels, Tolstoy also wrote tightly compressed works of equal power. This new collection gathers perhaps his greatest novella, The Death of Ivan Ilyich, together with shorter masterpieces 'Three Deaths', 'Pace-setter' and the fable-like story 'Alyosha the Pot'. Whether writing from the perspective of an aged horse or plotting the travails of an optimistic young worker, Tolstoy was able to penetrate to the rich core of human experience like no writer before or since. These sensitive new renderings by aw...

(P/B) SURRENDER TO NIGHT
COLLECTED POEMS OF GEORG TRAKI
Εκδότης: PUSHKIN PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3226-0071

In Georg Trakl's brief, tragic life he produced a body of work of intense visual power. Dense, imagistic and full of unnerving symbolism, his poems occupy a critical space in German Expressionism. Until his death on the Eastern Front in 1914, Trakl honed a singular poetic voice to express the horror he saw in the world around him, culminating in the starkly powerful war poems for which he is best known. This edition includes all of Trakl's major poems alongside a judicious selection of the best of his uncollected work, all rendered in vivi...
