(P/B) JOSEPH CONRAD
Εκδότης: HESPERUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0137

Joseph Conrad was born in 1857 to Polish parents exiled in the Ukraine. After finishing school, he became a sailor, an experience that he would later draw upon in novels such as Heart of Darkness. Conrad retired from the navy as soon as he had written his first book - written in English, his third language - and settled in England. But despite being a prolific writer, he struggled financially for many years, and it was only towards the end of his life that he achieved popular success. In 1941 he was effectively received into the canon of E...

(P/B) THE BIRTHPLACE
Εκδότης: HESPERUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0162

Blackport-on-Dwindle - 'all granite, fog and female fiction' - has been the Gedges' dull home town for some years. They leap, therefore, at the invitation to become the live-in guardians of the birthplace of the nation's literary hero. In The Birthplace, James displays his eye for character and a wry appreciation of pretension and the absurd. [...] (From the publisher)...

(P/B) ON FICTION
Εκδότης: HESPERUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0151

"Here, then, very briefly and with inevitable simplification, an attempt is made to show the mind at work upon a shelf full of novels and to watch it as it chooses and rejects, making itself a dwelling-place in accordance with its own appetites. Of these appetites, perhaps, the simplest is the desire to believe wholly and entirely in something which is fictitious". Her readings sensitive, her prose style elegant, authoritative and at times thoroughly opinionated, who better equipped than Virginia Woolf to ruminate on the art of fiction? In...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0084

Arriving at Mugby Junction in an attempt to escape his unhappy past, Barbox Brothers befriends a workman and his invalid daughter.

THE MYSTERY OF CLOOMBER
Εκδότης: HESPERUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0069

To his fellow-residents on the remote Western coast of Scotland, Major-General Heatherstone's behaviour seems far from orthodox. Spurning all attempts at friendship, he instead becomes a recluse, barricading himself in Cloomber Hall, and forbidding his children even to leave their home. Yet unknown to him, they strike up a friendship with the neighbouring Hunter Wests, who become increasingly intrigued by the general's paranoia, and, in particular, his recurring fear of the fifth of October. As September draws to a close, and as they hear ...

(P/B) HYDE PARK GATE NEWS
Εκδότης: HESPERUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0156

As children, Virginia Woolf, elder sister Vanessa Bell, and brother Thoby, collaborated on their very own newspaper, recording the day-to-day events of the family home, 22 Hyde Park Gate. Ingeniously mimicking the style of the leading newspapers of their day, the Stephen children present a charming and candid portrayal of life in London and at their holiday home in St Ives. Gossipy, playful and at times irreverent, they record the comings and goings of a host of figures - George Meredith and Henry James among them - whilst also proffering ...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0157

Wilkie Collins was one of the most popular writers in Victorian England. An innovator of detective fiction, Collins secured his fame with sensational novels that feature intricate legal plots, mistaken identities, and complex crimes.

(P/B) THE LAZY TOUR OF THE TWO IDLE APPRENTICES
Εκδότης: HESPERUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0158

In autumn 1857, Charles Dickens embarked on a sightseeing trip to Cumberland with his friend, the rising star of literature Wilkie Collins. Writing together, they reported their adventures for Dickens' periodical Household Words, producing a meditation on the pleasures of bachelor bonding and an example of collaborative journalism at its best. The Lazy Tour of the Two Idle Apprentices showcases both long-cherished and entirely novel sides of these well-loved men of letters. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) MARQUIS DE SADE
Εκδότης: HESPERUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0159

As explicit in his prose as he was in his private life, the Marquis de Sade remains one of the most controversial writers of all time. This new biography by David Carter promises to inform as much as it shocks. Arrested many times for sexual misdemeanours, the Marquis de Sade was imprisoned in the Bastille, where he was writing '120 Days of Sodom' and 'The Misfortunes of Virtue' at the time that it was stormed in 1789. After the French Revolution he was again imprisoned and sent to an asylum, where he wrote diaries and plays. With the deta...

(P/B) PRELUDE
Εκδότης: HESPERUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0077

A large, seemingly loving family, the Burnells lead an idyllic life, with the children free to play at will, indulged by their parents love. Yet another aspect of the household is delicately and unmistakenly laid bare as Mansfield plumbs the depths below this veneer. Pretensions and insecurities rise to the surface in a series of vivid and all-too-real impressions of domestic life, paralleled by explorations of childhood, memory and understanding. Accompanied here by its continuation pieces At the Bay and The Doll's House, Prelude shows M...

(H/B) TALKING ABOUT IT
Εκδότης: HESPERUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0153

Collected here for the first time the best from Tim Parks's short fiction, spanning across his entire literary career and enriched by new stories written specifically for this publication. The title story of the collection, Talking about It, presents two friends, George and Michael, meeting ritually in a pub every night after a game of squash. While George recounts his increasingly extravagant sexual experiences, Michael listens on, meditating on how to redeem his boring and somewhat uneventful life. But then one day the tables turn, and M...

ON COCAINE
Εκδότης: HESPERUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0150

When coca leaves were imported to Europe from South America in the nineteenth century, cocaine's medical potential divided the scientific world, before its use rapidly expanded out into literary and social circles. Finding cocaine to be an analgesic and a cure for depression, Freud hailed it as a miracle drug, stressing in particular its apparent lack of side effects. Marvelling, for example, at its ability to 'cure' addictions to morphine, Freud was enthusiastic in recommending to all his acquaintances. This unique selection combines lett...

(P/B) THE SQUABBLE
Εκδότης: HESPERUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0053

Neighbours Ivan Ivanovich and Ivan Nikiforovich are the very greatest of friends, freely enjoying each other's company and hospitality. Yet one day, perhaps induced by the hot weather, they begin a foolish and quite unnecessary quarrel. All could have been well, until things get quite out of hand with Ivan Nikiforovich voicing that very worst of insults: 'And you, Ivan Ivanovich are a goose.' From that moment on not another word is spoken between them as the two men choose instead to fight out their differences in the courts. But for the p...

EUREKA
Εκδότης: HESPERUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0957-0050

Written only shortly before his death, Eureka is considered by many to be Poe's masterpiece and the key to unlocking his entire writings. Turning his immense intellect and remarkable artistic flair to the most challenging concepts of all - that of the creation of the world, its continued existence and its ultimate end - Poe created a strange blend of poetry and scientific treaty, fact and frenzied speculation. Eureka displays amazing prescience and foresight, anticipating some of the key scientific discoveries of the twentieth century. (Fr...
