Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0016

Alcibiades - mercurial soldier and charismatic commander without peer on land and sea, a man whom fortune always favoured. Raised as a ward of Pericles, later a protege of Socrates, and compared to Achilles by the adoring Athenian masses, he was to become the key figure in the Peloponnesian War - the tumultuous 27-year civil war between Athens and Sparta that would devastate Greece in the last quarter of the 5th century BC. At the outset, for all his Spartan upbringing, Alcibiades remained loyal to Athens. But his popularity - and his arr...

(P/B) THE 158 POUND MARRIAGE
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0004

Severin Winter is not a man to take things lightly. His loving, like his wrestling, is decidedly heavyweight, a fact not lost on Utch, a lonely Viennese lady whose husband is rather taken (literally) by the delicate Edith, Severin's underweight wife. A bizarre menage a quatre is the result of these convoluted desires as Irving blends farce and tragedy in another bubbling and brilliant novel. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) BLIND FAITH
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0064

Imagine a world where everyone knows everything about everybody. Where 'sharing' is valued above all, and privacy is considered a dangerous perversion. Trafford wouldn't call himself a rebel, but he's daring to be different, to stand out from the crowd. In his own small ways, he wants to push against the system. But in this world, uniformity is everything. And even tiny defiances won't go unnoticed. Ben Elton's dark, savagely comic novel imagines a post-apocalyptic society where religious intolerance combines with a sex-obsessed, utterly e...

(P/B) THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE THUNDERBOLT KID
TRAVELS THROUGH MY CHILDHOOD
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0075

Bill Bryson's first travel book opened with the immortal line, 'I come from Des Moines. Somebody had to.' In this deeply funny and personal memoir, he travels back in time to explore the ordinary kid he once was, in the curious world of 1950s Middle America. It was a happy time, when almost everything was good for you, including DDT, cigarettes and nuclear fallout. This is a book about one boy's growing up. But in Bryson's hands, it becomes everyone's story, one that will speak volumes - especially to anyone who has ever been young. (From ...

Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0080

Katie Brenner has the perfect life: a flat in London, a glamorous job, and a super-cool Instagram feed.

(P/B) BLAST FROM THE PAST
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0060

It's two fifteen a.m., you're in bed alone and you're woken by the phone. Your eyes are wide and your body tense before it has completed so much as a single ring. And as you wake, in the tiny moment between sleep and consciousness, you know already that something is wrong. Only someone bad would call at such an hour. Or someone good, but with bad news, which would probably be worse. You lie there in the darkness and wait for the answer machine to kick in. Your own voice sounds strange as it tells you that nobody is there but that a message...

Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0000

Cambridge is sweltering, during an unusually hot summer. To Jackson Brodie, former police inspector turned private investigator, the world consists of one accounting sheet - Lost on the left, Found on the right - and the two never seem to balance. Jackson has never felt at home in Cambridge, and has a failed marriage to prove it. Surrounded by death, intrigue and misfortune, his own life haunted by a family tragedy, he attempts to unravel three disparate case histories and begins to realise that in spite of apparent diversity, everything i...

HOTEL NEW HAMPSHIRE
Εκδότης: BLACK SWAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0752-0007

"The first of my father's illusions was that bears could survive the life lived by human beings, and the second was that human beings could survive a life led in hotels." So says John Berry, son of a hapless dreamer, brother to a cadre of eccentric siblings, and chronicler of the lives lived, the loves experienced, the deaths met, and the myriad strange and wonderful times encountered by the family Berry. Hoteliers, pet-bear owners, friends of Freud (the animal trainer and vaudevillian, that is), and playthings of mad fate, they 'dream on'...
