Ο Πολωνός
Εκδότης: ΔΙΟΠΤΡΑ
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1200-1987

Ο Πολωνός είναι η ιστορία του Βίτολντ Βαλτσικιέβιτς, ενός εβδομηντάρη Πολωνού πιανίστα που ερωτεύεται την Μπεατρίθ, μια κατά πολύ νεότερή του γυναίκα, κομψή σύζυγο τραπεζίτη και προστάτιδα των τεχνών, που βοηθάει στην οργάνωση ενός ρεσιτάλ του στη Βαρκελώνη. Η Μπεατρίθ δεν εντυπωσιάζεται αρχικά από τον Βίτολντ, αλλά η πολιορκία του είναι τόσο επίμονη, που αναπόφευκτα παρασύρεται στον κόσμο του καλλιτέχνη. Καθώς της στέλνει γράμματα, της κάνει αμέτρητες προτάσεις για ταξίδια, έρχεται ακόμα και για επίσκεψη στο εξοχικό του συζύγου της στη Μα...

ΠΕΡΙ ΛΟΓΟΚΡΙΣΙΑΣ
«Ο ΜΑΝΤΕΛΣΤΑΜ ΚΑΙ Η ΩΔΗ ΣΤΟΝ ΣΤΑΛΙΝ» ΚΑΙ ΑΛΛΑ ΔΟΚΙΜΙΑ
Εκδότης: ΠΑΤΑΚΗΣ
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3330-4954

Tα συγκεντρωμένα στον ανά χείρας τόμο δοκίμια συνιστούν απόπειρα να κατανοήσω κάποιο συναίσθημα που δεν το συμμερίζομαι διαισθητικά, το συναίσθημα που εκδηλώνεται με καταστολή και λογοκρισία. Επίσης, συνιστούν απόπειρα να κατανοήσω, ιστορικά και κοινωνιολογικά, τους λόγους για τους οποίους δεν συμμερίζομαι το συγκεκριμένο συναίσθημα. Επομένως, δεν συνιστούν ιστορία της λογοκρισίας (χωρίς αυτό βέβαια να σημαίνει ότι θεωρώ τη λογοκρισία θεσμό χωρίς ιστορία). Ούτε βεβαίως προτείνουν κάποια ισχυρή θεωρία περί λογοκρισίας. Η λογοκρισία ανήκει ω...

(P/B) THE LIVES OF ANIMALS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0556

The idea of human cruelty to animals so consumes novelist Elizabeth Costello in her later years that she can no longer look another person in the eye: humans, especially meat-eating ones, seem to her to be conspirators in a crime of stupefying magnitude taking place on farms and in slaughterhouses, factories, and laboratories across the world. Costello's son, a physics professor, admires her literary achievements, but dreads his mother's lecturing on animal rights at the college where he teaches. His colleagues resist her argument that hum...

(P/B) MASTER OF PETERSBURG
Εκδότης: VINTAGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0462

In The Master Of Petersburg J. M. Coetzee dares to imagine the life of Dostoevsky. Set in 1869, when Dostoevsky was summoned from Germany to St Petersburg by the sudden death of his stepson, this novel is at once a compelling mystery steeped in the atmosphere of pre-revolutionary Russia and a brilliant and courageous meditation on authority and rebellion, art and imagination. Dostoevsky is seen obsessively following his stepson's ghost, trying to ascertain whether he was a suicide or a murder victim and whether he loved or despised his ste...

(P/B) WAITING FOR THE BARBARIANS
Εκδότης: VINTAGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0626-0109

For decades the Magistrate has run the affairs of a tiny frontier settlement, ignoring the impending war between the barbarians and the Empire, whose servant he is. But when the interrogation experts arrive, he is jolted into sympathy with the victims and into a quixotic act of rebellion which lands him in prison, branded as an enemy of the state. Waiting for the Barbarians is an allegory of oppressor and oppressed. Not just a man living through a crisis of conscience in an obscure place in remote times, the Magistrate is an analogue of al...

Elizabeth Costello is an Australian writer of international renown. Famous principally for an early novel that established her reputation, she has reached the stage where her remaining function is to be venerated and applauded. Her life has become a series of engagements in sterile conference rooms throughout the world - a private consciousness obliged to reveal itself to a curious public: the presentation of a major award at an American college where she is required to deliver a lecture; a sojourn as the writer in residence on a cruise li...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2760-1779

Ο συγγραφέας Τζον Κουτσί, μακαρίτης πια, είναι το αντικείμενο του βιβλίου που σκοπεύει να γράψει ένας νεαρός άγγλος βιογράφος. Στόχος του είναι να επικεντρωθεί στην περίοδο 1972-77, όταν ο τριαντάρης τότε Κουτσί ζούσε με τον χήρο πατέρα του σ' ένα μίζερο σπιτάκι σε προάστιο του Κέιπ Τάουν.

"As funny, cruel and terrifying as life itself. It is also intense and elegant, clearly the product of the complex, subtle imagination which shapes Coetzee's outstanding fiction... As austerely beautiful as would be expected of Coetzee the artist... its aloof, edgy grace and seething passion ensure the narrative is both truthful and mysterious" (IRISH TIMES) "Boyhood is a deeply felt and utterly compelling account of a South African childhood: the narrative style is as spare and lean as the Karoo flatlands which form its backdrop" (DAILY T...
