Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0076

The book everyone is talking about: how the French manage to raise well-behaved children, and have a life! Who hasn't noticed how well-behaved French children are, compared to our own? - How come French babies sleep through the night? - Why do French children happily eat what is put in front of them? - How can French mothers chat to their friends while their children play quietly? - Why are French mothers more likely to be seen in skinny jeans than tracksuit bottoms?

(P/B) ONE SUMMER
AMERICA 1927
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0057

Britain's favourite writer of narrative non-fiction Bill Bryson travels back in time to a forgotten summer when America came of age, took centre stage, and, in five eventful months, changed the world for ever. In the summer of 1927, America had a booming stock market, a president who worked just four hours a day (and slept much of the rest of the time), a semi-crazed sculptor with a mad plan to carve four giant heads into an inaccessible mountain called Rushmore, a devastating flood of the Mississippi, a sensational murder trial, and a you...

(P/B) GATES OF FIRE
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0013

"Go tell the Spartans, stranger passing by, That here, obedient to their laws, we lie." Nearly 2,500 years ago, in 480BC, at a bleak pass in a far-flung corner of eastern Greece, three hundred Spartan warriors faced the army of Xerxes of Persia, a massive force rumoured to be over a million strong. Their orders were simple: to delay the enemy for as long as possible while the main Greek armies mobilized. For six days the Spartans held the invaders at bay. In the final hours - their shields broken, swords and spears shattered - they fought ...

(P/B) THE LOST CONTINENT
TRAVELS IN SMALL TOWN AMERICA
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0024

'I come from Des Moines. Somebody had to' And, as soon as Bill Bryson was old enough, he left. Des Moines couldn't hold him, but it did lure him back. After ten years in England, he returned to the land of his youth, and drove almost 14,000 miles in search of a mythical small town called Amalgam, the kind of trim and sunny place where the films of his youth were set. Instead, his search led him to Anywhere, USA; a lookalike strip of gas stations, motels and hamburger outlets populated by lookalike people with a penchant for synthetic fibre...

(P/B) NOTES FROM A SMALL ISLAND
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0026

After nearly two decades in Britain, Bill Bryson took the decision to move back to the States for a while, to let his kids experience life in another country, to give his wife the chance to shop until 10 p.m. seven nights a week, and, most of all, because he had read the 3.7 million Americans believed that they had been abducted by aliens at one time or another, and it was thus clear to him that his people needed him. But before leaving his much-loved home in North Yorkshire, Bryson insisted on taking one last trip around Britain, a sort o...

(P/B) ONE GOOD TURN
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0030

It is the Edinburgh Festival. People queuing for a lunchtime show witness a road-rage incident - an incident which changes the lives of everyone involved. Jackson Brodie, ex-army, ex-police, ex-private detective, is also an innocent bystander - until he becomes a suspect. With Case Histories, Kate Atkinson showed how brilliantly she could explore the crime genre and make it her own. In One Good Turn she takes her masterful plotting one step further. Like a set of Russian dolls each thread of the narrative reveals itself to be related to th...

(P/B) HOW I LOSE YOU
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0095

When Eva and Adam fall into bed one Friday night, tired and happy after drinks with friends, they have their whole lives ahead of them. But their story ends on page twelve. That's no reason to stop reading though, because How I Lose You is a story told backwards - and it's all the more warm, tender and moving because we know it is going to be interrupted. It's a story Eva thought she knew - but as you and she will discover, it's not just the ending of the story that she got wrong. (From the publisher)...

Berlin,1933. William E. Dodd, a mild-mannered academic from Chicago, has to his own and everyone else's surprise, become America's first ambassador to Hitler's Germany, in a year that proves to be a turning point in history. Dodd and his family, notably his vivacious daughter, Martha, observe at first-hand the many changes - some subtle, some disturbing, and some horrifically violent - that signal Hitler's consolidation of power.

Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN

Snap decisions can be dangerous... On a stifling summer's day, eleven-year-old Jack and his two sisters sit in their broken-down car, waiting for their mother to come back and rescue them. Jack's in charge, she'd said. I won't be long. But she doesn't come back. She never comes back. And life as the children know it is changed for ever. Three years later, Jack is still in charge - of his sisters, of supporting them all, of making sure nobody knows they're alone in the house, and - quite suddenly - of finding out the truth about what happ...

(P/B) AN APPETITE FOR WONDER
THE MAKING OF A SCIENTIST
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0056

Born to parents who were enthusiastic naturalists, and linked through his wider family to a clutch of accomplished scientists, Richard Dawkins was bound to have biology in his genes. But what were the influences that shaped his life? And who inspired him to become the pioneering scientist and public thinker now famous (and infamous to some) around the world? In An Appetite for Wonder we join him on a personal journey from an enchanting childhood in colonial Africa, through the eccentricities of boarding school in England, to his studies at...

STORIES
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0093

A dazzling, smart and razor-sharp story collection by Curtis Sittenfeld, Sunday Times bestselling author of Eligible and American Wife. The theme that unites these stories is how even the cleverest people tend to misread others, and how much we all deceive ourselves. Sharp and tender, funny and wise, they show Sittenfeld's knack for creating real, believable characters that spring off the page, while also skewering contemporary mores with brilliant dry wit. 'DO-OVER', ONE OF THE STORIES IN THIS COLLECTION, WAS SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2018 SUN...

(P/B) STEPHEN HAWKING
A LIFE WELL LIVED
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0090

In 1963 Stephen Hawking was given two years to live. Defying all the odds, he died in March 2018 at age seventy-six as the most celebrated scientist in the world. This carefully researched, and now newly updated, up-to-the-minute biography and tribute gives a rich picture of Hawking's remarkable life - his childhood, the heart-rending beginning of his struggle with motor neurone disease, his ever-increasing international fame, and his long personal battle for survival in pursuit of a scientific understanding of the universe.

(P/B) IN ONE PERSON
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0048

A compelling novel of desire, secrecy, and sexual identity, In One Person is a story of unfulfilled love - tormented, funny, and affecting - and an impassioned embrace of our sexual differences. Billy, the bisexual narrator and main character, tells the tragicomic story (lasting more than half a century) of his life as a 'sexual suspect', a phrase first used by John Irving in 1978 - in his landmark novel of 'terminal cases', The World According to Garp. His most political novel since The Cider House Rules and A Prayer for Owen Meany, John ...

(P/B) THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0002

This is the life and times of T. S. Garp, the bastard son of Jenny Fields - a feminist leader ahead of her times. It is also the life and death of a famous mother and her almost-famous son; theirs is a world of sexual extremes - even of sexual assassinations. It is a novel rich with 'lunacy and sorrow'; yet the dark, violent events of the story do not undermine a comedy both ribald and robust. It provides almost cheerful, even hilarious evidence of its famous last line: 'In the world according to Garp, we are all terminal cases.' (From the...

(P/B) MAD BLOOD STIRRING
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0088

1815: The war is over but for the inmates at Dartmoor Prison, peace - like home - is still a long way away. On the eve of the year 1815, the captured sailors of the Eagle arrive at Dartmoor prison; bedraggled, exhausted, sustained only by a rumour heard along the way. Joe Hill thought he'd left the conflict behind but it is clear there is a different type of battle here. As he announces the news of the end of the war, the guards bristle and the inmates stir. The powder keg was fixed to blow and Joe has just lit the fuse. Elizabeth Shortla...
