(P/B) TO THE LIGHTHOUSE
Εκδότης: VINTAGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0442

The serene and maternal Mrs Ramsay, the tragic yet absurd Mr Ramsay, together with their children and assorted guests, are holidaying on the Isle of Skye. From the seemingly trivial postponement of a visit to a nearby lighthouse Virginia Woolf constructs a remarkable and moving examination of the complex tensions and allegiances of family life. One of the great literary achievements of the twentieth century, To the Lighthouse is often cited as Virginia Woolf's most popular novel. The Vintage Classics Virginia Woolf series has been curated ...

(P/B) THE FEELING OF WHAT HAPPENS
BODY, EMOTION AND THE MAKING OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Εκδότης: VINTAGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0698

Neurophysiology expert, Professor Damasio, shows how consciousness develops out of mental and physical feeling in this poetic and illuminating book. One of the world's leading experts on the neurophysiology of emotions, Professor Damasio shows how our consciousness, our sense of being, arose out of development of emotion. At its core, human consciousness is consciousness of the feeling, experiencing self, the 'very thought of' oneself. Brilliantly wide-ranging in his scope, Damasio illustrates his thesis with fascinating and illuminating ...

(P/B) SLAUGHTERHOUSE 5
Εκδότης: VINTAGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0424

One of the very best anti-war novels ever written. Prisoner of war, optometrist, time-traveller - these are the life roles of Billy Pilgrim, hero of this miraculously moving, bitter and funny story of innocence faced with apocalypse. Slaughterhouse 5 is one of the world's great anti-war books. Centring on the infamous fire-bombing of Dresden in the Second World War, Billy Pilgrim's odyssey through time reflects the journey of our own fractured lives as we search for meaning in what we are afraid to know.

(P/B) SELECTED DIARIES
Εκδότης: VINTAGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0657

A moving, perceptive and beautifully written insight into the workings of the mind of one of the best loved and most admired writers of the twentieth century. Virginia Woolf turned to her diary as to an intimate friend, to whom she could freely and spontaneously confide her thoughts on public events or the joys and trials of domestic life. Between 1st January 1915 and her death in 1941 she regularly recorded her thoughts with unfailing grace, courage, honesty and wit. The result is one of the greatest diaries in the English language.

(P/B) LIFE
A USER'S MANUAL
Εκδότης: VINTAGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0331

One of the most dazzling and ingeniously contrived works of twentieth-century fiction, an entire microcosm brought to life in a Paris apartment block. Serge Val-ne, one of the inhabitants of the apartment block, has conceived the idea of a painting which will show in exact detail the inside of each apartment within the building, every person, every object. As he thinks of his picture, he contemplates the lives of all the people he has ever known or heard about in sixty years living there. Chapter by chapter, room by room, the narrative mov...

(P/B) HARD-BOILED WONDERLAND AND THE END OF THE WORLD
Εκδότης: VINTAGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0519

A narrative particle-accelerator that zooms between Wild Turkey Whiskey and Bob Dylan, unicorn skulls and voracious librarians, John Coltrane and Lord Jim. Science fiction, detective story and post-modern manifesto all rolled into one rip-roaring novel, ''Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World'' is the tour de force that expanded Haruki Murakami's international following. Tracking one man's descent into the Kafkaesque underworld of contemporary Tokyo, Murakami unites East and West, tragedy and farce, compassion and detachment, sla...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0102

On the Black Hill is an elegantly written tale of identical twin brothers who grow up on a farm in rural Wales and never leave home. They till the rough soil and sleep in the same bed, touched only occasionally by the advances of the 20th century. In depicting the lives of Benjamin and Lewis and their interactions with their small local community Chatwin comments movingly on the larger questions of human experience. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) THE DOORS OF PERCEPTION
Εκδότης: VINTAGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0456

One spring morning in 1953, Aldous Huxley took four-tenths of a gramme of mescalin, sat down and waited to see what would happen. When he opened his eyes he found everything, from the flowers in a vase to the creases in his trousers, was completely transformed. He describes his experience with breathtaking immediacy in "The Doors of Perception". In its sequel, "Heaven and Hell", he goes on to explore the history and nature of mysticism. Still bristling with a sense of excitement and discovery, these illuminating and influential writings re...

(P/B) SONG OF SOLOMON
Εκδότης: VINTAGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0288

(...) The challenge of Song of Solomon was to manage what was for me a radical shift in imagination from a female locus to a male one. To get out of the house, to de-domesticate the landscape that had so far been the site of my work. To travel. To fly. In such an overtly, stereotypically male narrative, I thought that straightforward chronology would be more suitable than the kind of play with sequence and time I had employed in my previous novels. A journey, then, with the accomplishment of flight, the triumphant end of a trip through ear...

(P/B) WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS
Εκδότης: VINTAGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0109

For decades the Magistrate has run the affairs of a tiny frontier settlement, ignoring the impending war between the barbarians and the Empire, whose servant he is. But when the interrogation experts arrive, he is jolted into sympathy with the victims and into a quixotic act of rebellion which lands him in prison, branded as an enemy of the state. Waiting for the Barbarians is an allegory of oppressor and oppressed. Not just a man living through a crisis of conscience in an obscure place in remote times, the Magistrate is an analogue of al...

(P/B) ELEPHANT
Εκδότης: VINTAGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0099

These seven stories were the last that Carver wrote. Among them is one of his longest, 'Errand', in which he imagines the death of Chekhov, a writer Carver hugely admired and to whose work his own was often compared. This fine story suggests that the greatest of modern short-story writers may, in the year before his untimely death, have been flexing his muscles for a longer work. (From the publisher)...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0196

In 1918 Ernest Hemingway went to war, to the 'war to end all wars'. He volunteered for ambulance service in Italy, was wounded and twice decorated. Out of his experiences came his early masterpiece, A Farewell to Arms. In an unforgettable depiction of war, Hemingway recreates the fear, the comradeship, the courage of his young American volunteers and the men and women he encounters along the way with conviction and brutal honesty. A love story of immense drama and uncompromising passion, A Farewell to Arms offers a unique and unflinching v...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0202

Published posthumously in 1964, A Moveable Feast remains one of Ernest Hemingway's most beloved works. Since Hemingway's personal papers were released in 1979, scholars have examined and debated the changes made to the text before publication. Now this new special restored edition presents the original manuscript as the author prepared it to be published. Featuring a personal foreword by Patrick Hemingway, Ernest's sole surviving son, and an introduction by the editor and grandson of the author, Sea'n Hemingway, this new edition also inclu...

Enter Brandy Alexander, Queen Supreme, one operation away from being a real woman, who will teach her that reinventing yourself means erasing your past and making up something better, and that salvation hides in the last place you'll ever w...
