STORIES AND POEMS FROM THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION
Εκδότης: PUSHKIN PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3226-0069

100 years since the Russian Revolution: the 20th century's greatest Russian writers respond. 'This is the last of you, old world - soon we'll smash you to bits.' The passionate voices of radicals, dreamers, workers, aristocrats, satirists and romantics fill these electrifying poems and prose pieces, written between 1917 and 1919 in the full tumult of the Russian Revolution. From apocalyptic visions to heartfelt calls for freedom, from depictions of bloody carnage to an acerbic portrait of Lenin, the writings brought together here are by tu...

(P/B) LIVES AND DEATHS
ESSENTIAL STORIES
Εκδότης: PUSHKIN PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3226-0083

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) THE UNHAPPINESS OF BEING A SINGLE MAN
ESSENTIAL STORIES
Εκδότης: PUSHKIN PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3226-0080

Kafka, whose name has generated an adjective, is one of the best loved writers of the twentieth century. Known for his dark, enigmatic stories, for the absurd nightmares he depicts, his extraordinary imaginative depth is clear in stories from 'A Hunger Artist' to 'The Verdict'. But Kafka also wrote fizzingly funny, fresh stories, and The Unhappiness of Being a Single Man contains all the aspects of this genius: the wit and the grit; the horror and the humour; the longing and the laughing. They range from bizarre, two-sentence stories abou...

Frustrated, lonely 17-year-old Nofar has spent an uneventful summer serving ice-cream to indifferent customers. She extends her break moping about her drab life, unwittingly irritating the bitter ex-reality TV star Avishai Milner who is waiting to be served. When Nofar corrects his language after he complains about his wait, he insults and humiliates her.

Εκδότης: PUSHKIN PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3226-0073

Rainer Maria Rilke offers a compelling portrait of Parisian life, art, and culture at the beginning of the 20th century In 1902, the young German poet Rainer Maria Rilke travelled to Paris to write a monograph on the sculptor Auguste Rodin.

This book brings together Rilke's sublime poetic meditations on existence Notes on...

ESSENTIAL STORIES
Εκδότης: PUSHKIN PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3226-0084

Fresh, stylish new translations of Gogol's greatest short stories collected in a beautiful edition Admired by writers from Nabokov to Bulgakov to George Saunders, Gogol is considered one of the more enigmatic of the Russian greats. He only wrote one novel, Dead Souls, and destroyed much of his later work, so his stories constitute his major output. In this collection, beautifully and skilfully translated by Oliver Ready, Gogol's three greatest St Petersburg stories - 'The Nose', 'The Overcoat' and 'The Diary of a Madman' - are presented al...

(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...

I am still unable to leave the burnt-out ruins' Akiyuki Nosaka, 2014. In 1945, Akiyuki Nosaka watched the Allied firebombing of Kobe kill his adoptive parents, and then witnessed his sister starving to death. The shocking and blisteringly memorable stories of The Cake Tree in the Ruins are based on his own experiences as a child in Japan during the Second World War. They are stories of a lonely whale searching the oceans for a mate, who sacrifices himself for love; of a mother desperately trying to save her son with her tears; of a huge, m...

(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) THE SALT OF THE EARTH
Εκδότης: PUSHKIN PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3226-0087

Only the villages are asleep, the eternal reservoir of all kinds of soldiery, the inexhaustible source of physical strength' At the beginning of the twentieth century the villagers of the Carpathian mountains lead a simple life, much as they have always done. The modern world has yet to reach the inhabitants of this isolated and remote region of the Habsburg Empire. Among them is Piotr, a bandy-legged peasant, who wants nothing more from life than an official railway cap, a cottage with a mouse-trap and cheese, and a bride with a dowry. Bu...

(P/B) THE BEAUTIES
ESSENTIAL STORIES
Εκδότης: PUSHKIN PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3226-0078

Chekhov was without doubt one of the greatest observers of human nature in all its untidy complexity. His short stories, written throughout his life and newly translated for this essential collection, are exquisite masterpieces in miniature. Here are tales offering a glimpse of beauty, the memory of a mistaken kiss, daydreams of adultery, a lifetime of marital neglect, the frailty of life, the inevitability of death, and the hilarious pomposity of ordinary men and women. They range from the lighthearted comic tales of his early years to so...

(P/B) BEWARE OF PITY
Εκδότης: PUSHKIN PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3226-0001

In 1913 a young second lieutenant discovers the terrible danger of pity.

(P/B) JOURNEYS
Εκδότης: PUSHKIN PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3226-0074

When I am on a journey, all ties suddenly fall away. I feel myself quite unburdened, disconnected, free - There is something in it marvellously uplifting and invigorating. Whole past epochs suddenly return: nothing is lost, everything still full of inception, enticement. For the insatiably curious and ardent Europhile Stefan Zweig, travel was both a necessary cultural education and a personal balm for the depression he experienced when rooted in one place for too long. He spent much of his life weaving between the countries of Europe, visi...
