(P/B) COME ON IN!
NEW POEMS
Εκδότης: CANONGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3877-0055

Now published in the UK for the first time, Come On In! is Charles Bukowski at his sad, hilarious, renegade best: a sequence of poems you'll want to read from beginning to end. Bukowski's unmistakable charisma - an ex-down-and-outer who wrote of booze and loneliness in maverick, confident free verse - made him one of the world's most popular poets. This collection is from an archive that the author left to be published after his death. It includes poems of love and sex, advice to so-called losers (as he once was) to have confidence in them...

(P/B) THE MATHEMATICS OF THE BREATH AND THE WAY
THE WRITING LIFE
Εκδότης: CANONGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3877-0164

In The Mathematics of the Breath and the Way, Charles Bukowski considers the art of writing, and the art of living as writer. Bringing together a variety of previously uncollected stories, columns, reviews, introductions, and interviews, this book finds him approaching the dynamics of his chosen profession with cynical aplomb, deflating pretentions and tearing down idols armed with only a typewriter and a bottle of beer. From numerous tales of the author's adventures at poetry readings, parties, film sets, and bars, to an unprecedented gat...

(P/B) ORLANDO
Εκδότης: CANONGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3877-0161

'He stretched himself. He rose. He stood upright in complete nakedness before us, and while the trumpets pealed 'Truth! Truth! Truth!' we have no choice left but confess - he was a woman.' A young man in the court of the ageing Queen Elizabeth I, the beautiful Orlando seems to belong everywhere and nowhere. One morning, Orlando awakens transformed - transported into the eighteenth century, and the body of a woman. One of the twentieth century's defining imaginings of queer identity, Orlando is a book of radical possibilities -boy and girl,...

THE ALAN RICKMAN DIARIES
Εκδότης: CANONGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3877-0225

Alan Rickman remains one of the most beloved actors of all time across almost every genre, from his breakout role as Die Hard's villainous Hans Gruber to his heart-wrenching run as Professor Severus Snape, and beyond. His air of dignity, his sonorous voice and the knowing wit he brought to each role continue to captivate new audiences today. But Rickman's artistry wasn't confined to just his performances. Rickman's writing details the extraordinary and the ordinary in a way that is anecdotal, indiscreet, witty, gossipy and utterly candid. ...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3877-0229

Faith, Hope and Carnage is a book about Nick Cave's inner life.

(P/B) HAM ON RYE
Εκδότης: CANONGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3877-0002

Legendary barfly Charles Bukowski's fourth novel, first published in 1982, is probably the most autobiographical and moving of all his books, dealing in particular with his difficult relationship with his father and his early childhood in LA. Ham on Rye follows the path of Bukowski's alter-ego Henry Chinaski through the high school years of acne and rejection and into the beginning of a long and successful career in alcoholism. The novel begins against the backdrop of an America devastated by the Depression and takes the Chinaski legend up...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3877-0226

THERE'S NO PLANET LIKE HOME. After an 'incident' one wet Friday night where he was found walking naked through the streets of Cambridge, Professor Andrew Martin is not feeling quite himself. Food sickens him. Clothes confound him. Even his loving wife and teenage son are repulsive to him. He feels lost amongst an alien species and hates everyone on the planet. Everyone, that is, except Newton, (and he's a dog). Who is he really? And what could make someone change their mind about the human race? (From the publisher)...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3877-0167

Bass player extraordinaire Charles Mingus, who died in 1979, is one of the essential composers in the history of jazz, and Beneath the Underdog, his celebrated, wild, funny, demonic, anguished, shocking and profoundly moving memoir, is the greatest autobiography ever written by a jazz musician.

(P/B) WE ARE ELECTRIC
THE NEW SCIENCE OF OUR BODY'S ELECTROME
Εκδότης: CANONGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3877-0217

You may be familiar with the idea of our body's biome - the bacterial fauna that populates our gut and can so profoundly affect our health. In We Are Electric we cross the next frontier of scientific understanding: discover your body's electrome. Every cell in our bodies - bones, skin, nerves, muscle - has a voltage, like a tiny battery. This bioelectricity is why our brains can send signals to our bodies, why we develop the way we do in the womb and how our bodies know to heal themselves from injury. When bioelectricity goes awry, illness...
