AND OTHER STORIES
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-1324

Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-4079

Jean Rhys's Good Morning Midnight is an unforgettable portrait of a woman bravely confronting loneliness and despair in her quest for self-determination In 1930s Paris, where one cheap hotel room is very like another, a young woman is teaching herself indifference. She has escaped personal tragedy and has come to France to find courage and seek independence. She tells herself to expect nothing, especially not kindness, least of all from men.

(P/B) NAKED LUNCH
THE RESTORED TEXT
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-3234

Nightmarish and fiercely funny, William Burroughs' virtuoso, taboo-breaking masterpiece Naked Lunch follows Bill Lee through Interzone: a surreal, orgiastic wasteland of drugs, depravity, political plots, paranoia, sadistic medical experiments and endless, gnawing addiction. One of the most shocking novels ever written, Naked Lunch is a cultural landmark, now in a restored edition incorporating Burroughs' notes on the text, alternate drafts and outtakes from the original.

(P/B) THE TROUBLE WITH BEING BORN
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-4020

Cioran grapples with the major questions of human existence: birth, death, God, the passing of time, how to relate to others and how to make ourselves get out of bed in the morning. In a series of interlinking aphorisms which are at once pessimistic, poetic and extremely funny, Cioran finds a kind of joy in his own despair, revelling in the absurdity and futility of our existence, and our inability to live in the world..(From the publisher)...

(P/B) The Beauty of Everyday Things
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-4314

The daily lives of ordinary people are replete with objects, common things used in commonplace settings. These objects are our constant companions in life. As such, writes Soetsu Yanagi, they should be made with care and built to last, treated with respect and even affection. They should be natural and simple, sturdy and safe - the aesthetic result of wholeheartedly fulfilling utilitarian needs. They should, in short, be things of beauty. In an age of feeble and ugly machine-made things, these essays call for us to deepen and transform our...

(P/B) THE COLOSSUS OF MAROUSSI
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-3295

Enraptured by a young woman's account of the landscapes of Greece, Henry Miller set off to explore the Grecian countryside with his friend Lawrence Durrell in 1939. In The Colossus of Maroussi he describes drinking from sacred springs, nearly being trampled to death by sheep and encountering the flamboyant Greek poet Katsumbalis, who 'could galvanize the dead with his talk'. This lyrical classic of travel writing represented an epiphany in Miller's life, and is the book he would later cite as his favourite. (From the publisher)...

Ten tales of loss and longing, from one Japan's greatest writers. It was the height of summer, and there was anger in the rays of the sun.

Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-4415

Hannah Arendt's chilling analysis of the conditions that led to the Nazi and Soviet totalitarian regimes is a warning from history about the fragility of freedom, exploring how propaganda, scapegoats, terror and political isolation all aided the slide towards total domination.

(P/B) KINGDOM OF FEAR
LOATHSOME SECRETS OF A STAR-CROSSED CHILD IN THE FINAL DAYS OF THE AMERICAN CENTURY
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-2036

In his much-anticipated memoir, Hunter S. Thompson looks back on a long and productive life. It is a story of crazed road trips fuelled by bourbon and black acid, of insane judges and giant porcupines, of girls, guns, explosives and, of course, bikes. He also takes on his dissolute youth in Louisville; his adventures in pornography; campaigning for local office in Aspen; and what it's like to accidentally be accused of trying to kill Jack Nicholson.

(P/B) NADJA
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-1370

The core of Nadja is Breton's complex relationship with an unpredictable and unconventional young woman, 'the extreme limit of the Surrealist aspiration'. Combining autobiographical fact with memory and imagination, Breton both spins one of the most unusual love stories in modern literature and illustrates the notion of 'petrifying coincidence', a cornerstone of Surrealist thought. First published in 1928, Nadja has long been regarded as the most important and influential work to emerge from Surrealism. This edition features Richard Howard...

(P/B) QUIET DAYS IN CLICHY
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-3294

Looking back to Henry Miller's bohemian life in 1930s Paris, when he was an obscure, penniless writer, Quiet Days in Clichy is a love letter to a city. As he describes nocturnal wanderings through shabby Montmartre streets, caf?s and bars, sexual liaisons and volatile love affairs, Miller brilliantly evokes a period that would shape his entire life and oeuvre.

Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-4014

(P/B) THE GALTON CASE
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-3610

Τwenty years ago, Anthony Galton vanished, along with his streetwise bride and several thousand dollars of the Galton fortune. Now his dying mother wants him found, and Lew Archer is on the case: is Anthony hiding somewhere, happy and eager not to be discovered? But what Archer finds - a headless skeleton, a clever con and a terrified blonde - reveals a game whose stakes are so high that someone is willing to kill. The Galton Case is a wonderfully devious and poetic look at poverty, greed, murder and identity. Ross Macdonald's Lew Archer m...

(P/B) Society Must Be Defended
Lectures at the College de France, 1975-76
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-2752

Society Must Be Defended is Michel Foucault's devastating critique of the systems of power and control inherent in civilization. Taken from a series of lectures given by Foucault at the College de France in 1975-76, it reveals how war is the foundation of all power relations, and politics ultimately a continuation of battlefield violence. He offers a politically charged re-reading of history, with examples ranging from the Trojan myth to Nazi Germany, to show a continual, 'silent war' between the powerful and the powerless. (From the publi...

POEMS UNCOLLECTED
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-3297

"Rainy night on Union Square, full moon. Want more poems? Wait till I'm dead." - Allen Ginsberg, August 8, 1990, 3:30 A.M. Allen Ginsberg wrote incessantly for more than fifty years, and many of the poems collected for the first time in this volume were scribbled in letters or sent off to obscure publications and unjustly forgotten. Containing more than a hundred previously unpublished poems, accompanied by original photographs, and spanning from the 1940s to the 1990s, Wait Till I'm Dead is the final major contribution to Ginsberg's spra...

(P/B) SHOOTING AN ELEPHANT
Εκδότης: PENGUIN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3452-3524

'Shooting an Elephant' is Orwell's searing and painfully honest account of his experience as a police officer in imperial Burma; killing an escaped elephant in front of a crowd 'solely to avoid looking a fool'. The other masterly essays in this collection include classics such as 'My Country Right or Left', 'How the Poor Die' and 'Such, Such were the Joys', his memoir of the horrors of public school, as well as discussions of Shakespeare, sleeping rough, boys' weeklies and a spirited defence of English cooking.
