(P/B) WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN
Εκδότης: SERPENT΄S TAIL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3837-0044

Eva never really wanted to be a mother; certainly not the mother of the unlovable boy who murdered seven of his fellow high school students, a cafeteria worker and a teacher who tried to befriend him. Now, two years later, it is time for her to come to terms with marriage, career, family, parenthood and Kevin's horrific rampage in a series of startlingly direct correspondences with her absent husband, Franklyn. Uneasy with the sacrifices and social demotion of motherhood from the start, Eva fears that her alarming dislike for her own son m...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3837-0011

Swearing to his dying mother that he'll find the father he has never met, a certain Pedro Paramo, Juan Preciado sets out across the barren plains of Mexico for Comala, the hallucinatory ghost town his father presided over like a feudal lord. Between the realms of the living and the dead, in fragments of dreams and the nightly whispers of Comala's ghosts, there emerges the tragic tale of Pedro Paramo and the town whose every corner holds the taint of his rotten soul.

(P/B) THE BOOK OF DISQUIET
Εκδότης: SERPENT΄S TAIL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3837-0010

Sitting at his desk, Bernardo Soares imagined himself free forever of Rua dos Douradores, of his boss Vasques, of Moreira the book-keeper, of all the other employees, the errand boy, the post boy, even the cat. But if he left them all tomorrow and discarded the suit of clothes he wears, what else would he do? Because he would have to do something. And what suit would he wear? Because he would have to wear another suit.A self-deprecating reflection on the sheer distance between the loftiness of his feelings and the humdrum reality of his li...

(P/B) WHATEVER
Εκδότης: SERPENT΄S TAIL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3837-0008

Just thirty, with a well-paid job, depression and no love life, the narrator and anti-hero par excellence of this grim, funny and clever novel smokes four packs of cigarettes a day and writes weird animal stories in his spare time. A computer programmer by day, he is tolerably content, until, that is, he's packed off with a colleague - the unimaginably ugly, sexually-frustrated virgin Raphael Tisserand - to train provincial civil servants in the use of a new computer system... A painfully realistic portrayal of the vanishing freedom of a w...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3837-0056

What he doesn't expect is that digging for the truth will demand plenty of lying, and that the most ...

(P/B) OPEN VEINS OF LATIN AMERICA
FIVE CENTURIES OF THE PILLAGE OF A CONTINENT
Εκδότης: SERPENT'S TAIL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3837-0046

The book Chavez gave Obama... the ensuing media frenzy... the hottest book written about the coolest continent. Since its U.S. debut a quarter-century ago, this brilliant text has set a new standard for historical scholarship of Latin America. It is also an outstanding political economy, a social and cultural narrative of the highest quality, and perhaps the finest description of primitive capital accumulation since Marx.Rather than chronology, geography, or political successions, Eduardo Galeano has organized the various facets of Latin A...

(P/B) BEFORE NIGHT FALLS
Εκδότης: SERPENT'S TAIL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3837-0040

Reinaldo Arenas was born to a poverty-stricken family in rural Cuba. By the time of his death in New York four decades later, he had become one of Cuba's most important poets, an outspoken critic of Castro's regime and one of the leading gay voices of the twentieth century. In Before Night Falls, Arenas tells of his odyssey from young rebel fighting for the Revolution, through his suppression as a writer, his disillusionment with Castro, his imprisonment and torture, to his eventual exile from Cuba to New York, where in 1987 he was diagno...

(P/B) THE WALK
Εκδότης: SERPENT'S TAIL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3837-0054

Ranging from one-page fantasies to novella-length studies of everyday existence, The Walk reveals the irresistible genius of one of the twentieth century's greatest writers. Under-appreciated even in his own lifetime, Robert Walser has nonetheless been recognised by such writers as W.G. Sebald, Susan Sontag, Franz Kafka, Herman Hesse and J.M. Coetzee. Like Kafka and Sebald, Walser wrote about the solitude and unease of human existence. Honest, wry and idiosyncratic, his stories are snapshots of the lives great artists, poor young men, beau...

(P/B) KING SUCKERMAN
Εκδότης: SERPENT'S TAIL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3837-0039

Wilton Cooper is at a drive-in movie when he notices the ugly white boy walk into the projection booth. Seconds later a gun goes off, perfectly timed to coincide with the movie's noisy climax. When the boy struts coolly out, blood sprayed on the front of his cheap print shirt, Cooper knows he's found his partner. King Suckerman weaves the blaxploitation films, the drug deals, the soul music and the racial tensions that defined the 70's into a story of natural-born killers and two men who risk everything to bring them down. This is the seco...

Εκδότης: SERPENT΄S TAIL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3837-0030

The Depression of the 1930s led people to desperate measures to survive. The marathon dance craze, which flourished at that time seemed a simple way for people to earn extra money dancing the hours away for cash, for weeks at a time. But the underside of that craze was filled with a competition and violence unknown to most ballrooms. A lurid tale of dancing and desperation: Horace McCoy's classic American novel captures the dark side of the 1930s....

JOHANNES CLIMACUS
Εκδότης: SERPENT'S TAIL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3837-0022

When Kierkegaard died at the age of forty-two, the papers found in his desk included Johannes Climacus, probably written in the winter of 1842-43. The book is a novel, as well as a work of philosophy, which tells the tale of what happens to the young Johannes Climacus as he decides to become a philosopher. At first in awe of the great thinkers, especially Hegel he sets out to follow their philosophical example by exploring the maxim 'Everything must be doubted'. The more he examines this idea, however, the more he realises how deluded his ...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3837-0034

Gregoire Nakobomayo, a petty criminal, has decided to kill his girlfriend Germaine.

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3837-0051

Alain Mabanckou left Congo in 1989, at the age of twenty-two, not to return until a quarter of a century later. When at last he comes home to Pointe-Noire, a bustling port town on Congo's south-eastern coast, he finds a country that in some ways has changed beyond recognition: the cinema where, as a child, Mabanckou gorged on glamorous American culture has become a Pentecostal temple, and his secondary school has been re-named in honour of a previously despised colonial ruler. But many things remain unchanged, not least the swirling mythol...
