(P/B) FACTOTUM
Εκδότης: VIRGIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0619-0005

Henry Chinaski, an outcast, a loner and a hopeless drunk, drifts around America from one dead-end job to another, from one woman to another and from one bottle to the next. Uncompromising, gritty, hilarious and confessional in turn, his downward spiral is peppered with black humour. Factotum follows Charles Bukowski's bestselling Post Office, his highly autobiographical first novel. Bukowski's Beat Generation writing reflects his slum upbringing, his succession of menial jobs and his experience of low life urban America. He died in 1994 an...

(P/B) ZERO TO ONE
NOTES ON START UPS, OR HOW TO BUILD THE FUTURE
Εκδότης: VIRGIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0619-0027

What valuable company is nobody building? The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won't make a search engine. If you are copying these guys, you aren't learning from them. It's easier to copy a model than to make something new: doing what we already know how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. Every new creation goes from 0 to 1. This book is about how to get there. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) PULP
Εκδότης: VIRGIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0619-0018

Charles Bukowski's brilliant, fantastical pastiche of a detective story. Packed with wit, invention and Bukowski's trademark lowlife adventures, it is the final novel of one of the most enjoyable and influential cult writers of the last century. Nicky Belane, private detective and career alcoholic, is a troubled man. He is plagued not just by broads, booze, lack of cash and a raging ego, but also by the surreal jobs he's been hired to do. Not only has been hired to track down French classical author Celine - who's meant to be dead - but he...

(P/B) ELEVEN RINGS
Εκδότης: VIRGIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0619-0026

During his storied career as head coach of the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers, Phil Jackson won more championships than any coach in the history of professional sports. Even more important, he succeeded in never wavering from coaching his way, from a place of deep values. Jackson was tagged as the 'Zen master' half in jest by sportswriters, but the nickname speaks to an important truth: this is a coach who inspired, not goaded; who led by awakening and challenging the better angels of his players' nature, not their egos, fear, or gre...

(P/B) THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN TOWN
Εκδότης: VIRGIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0619-0014

This collection of short stories propels the reader into the lowlife of America's underworld, full of drunks, bums and gamblers, where sex and violence are everywhere and the most beautiful woman in town drinks and fights. Bukowski writes with brutal honesty and sardonic humour of the things he experienced in life; poverty, hard women and chronic hangovers. During his lifetime Bukowski published more than forty-five books of poetry and prose including the novels Post Office (1971), Factotum (1975), Women (1978) and Pulp (1994), all availab...

(P/B) TALES OF ORDINARY MADNESS
Εκδότης: VIRGIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0619-0011

Inspired by D.H. Lawrence, Chekhov and Hemingway, Bukowski's writing is passionate, extreme and has attracted a cult following, while his life was as weird and wild as the tales he wrote. This collection of short stories gives an insight into the dark, dangerous lowlife of Los Angeles that Bukowski inhabited. From prostitutes to classical music, Bukowski ingeniously mixes high and low culture in his 'tales of ordinary madness'. These are angry yet tender, humorous and haunting portrayals of life in the underbelly of Los Angeles. (From the ...

(P/B) NOTES OF A DIRTY OLD MAN
Εκδότης: VIRGIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0619-0010

"One day after the races, I sat down and wrote the heading Notes of a Dirty Old Man, opened a beer, and the writing got done by itself... Just sit by the window, lift the beer and let it come. Anything that wanted to arrive, arrived." This collection of Bukowski's columns for an underground LA newspaper epitomizes his style of gritty realism. Writing as himself, or his alter-ego, Henry Chinaski, Bukowski delves into America's lowlife to eulogise life's losers and antiheroes. Packed with violence, women, gambling and booze, Bukowski's semi...

(H/B) INTRODUCING GEORGE THE POET
SEARCH PARTY, A COLLECTION OF POEMS
Εκδότης: VIRGIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0619-0025

A young black poet blending spoken word and rap; an inner city upbringing with a Cambridge education; a social consciousness with a satirical wit and infectious rhythm - George The Poet is the voice of a new generation. Search Party is a thought-provoking and deeply autobiographical collection. From the overtly political 'Go Home' to the deeply personal 'Full-time'; the narrative poems that offer vivid and unapologetic snapshots of inner-city life, such as 'His Mistakes', 'Believer' and the anthemic 'My City'; to the provocative social com...

(P/B) TO HELL AND BACK
AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY
Εκδότης: VIRGIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0619-0021

Meat Loaf's bizarre and spectacular life story is scarcely credible. After surviving an abusive childhood, during which he was almost murdered by his alcoholic father, he starred in one of the biggest stage and film musicals ever, then went on to record the third best-selling album of all time. To Hell and Back is the true story of a man who ran away from a cruel home life at 17 and starred in the legendary Rocky Horror Picture Show before turning to rock 'n' roll. His first album, Bat Out Of Hell, was considered so uncommercial by his fir...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0619-0019

In 1973, Norman Mailer published Marilyn, his celebrated in-depth account of the life of Marilyn Monroe, as a glossy, fully illustrated coffee-table tome.

Yet, until now, it has never been made available in an accessible mass-market paperback edition. This is one of America's greatest writers taking on the legend of one of Hollywood's greatest stars.

(P/B) THE KOP
LIVERPOOL'S TWELFTH MAN
Εκδότης: VIRGIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0619-0017

The Spion Kop is one of the most famous, emotive and atmospheric vantage points in all of sport. The one-time terracing that could 'suck the ball into the net' - in Bill Shankly's immortal phrase - still inspires and intimidates today. Once the home of more than 25,000 swaying, singing, standing Kopites, it's now seated and can hold merely half that number, but its magic still remains. In this fully revised and updated edition, Stephen F Kelly uses eyewitness testimonies from Kopites, policemen, cleaners and referees as well as newspaper r...
