(P/B) GEEK LOVE
Εκδότης: ABACUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0397-0040

Lil Binewski, born a Boston aristocrat, was in her time the most stylish of geeks. That is to say she made her living by biting the heads off live chickens in front of a Carnival audience. This she gave up for doting motherhood, because she had her fairground- owning husband had a money spinning idea. Throughout each pregnancy Lil gobbles pesticides, experiments with drugs and douses herself with radiation to ensure that she prodcues infants grotesque enough to keep the turnstiles clicking. She does. Arturo the Aqua Boy is a limbless megal...

(P/B) TEN SORRY TALES
Εκδότης: FABER & FABER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4386-0471

Ten Sorry Tales is a strange beast: a book of bones and stones, of vengeful hermits and wayward hearses, of junior Rip Van Winkles and resurrectionists. From the faintly weird to the fiercely eccentric, and from the everyday to the surreal, the stories read like cautionary tales and modern-day fables, as the world of adult experience meets that of the child's imagination. Two old spinsters dress up drowned men in their parlour. A cantankerous old horse steals buttons off children's jackets and keeps them in a special compartment in his sto...

The Smart family's lacklustre holiday in Norwich is turned upside down when a beguiling stranger called Amber appears, bringing with her love, joy, pain and upheaval. The Smarts try to make sense of their bewildering emotions as Amber tramples over family boundaries and forces them to think about their world and themselves in an entirely new way. The Accidental is at once a mysterious web of secret identities and a ruthlessly honest look at the silent cracks that can develop unnoticed in relationships over time. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0931-0312

Stylish reissue of a classic first published in the 1970s: Hunter S Thompson’s ether-fuelled, savage journey to the heart of the American Dream. ‘We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold... And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, which was going about a hundred miles an hour with the top down to Las Vegas...’ As knights of old buckled on armour of supernatural power, so ...

(H/B) THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE, THE GIRLS OF SLENDER MEANS, THE DRIVER'S SEAT, THE ONLY PROBLEM
Εκδότης: EVERYMAN΄S LIBRARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1669-0194

The brevity of Muriel Spark’s novels is equaled only by their brilliance. These four novels, each a miniature masterpiece, illustrate her development over four decades. Despite the seriousness of their themes, all four are fantastic comedies of manners, bristling with wit. Spark’s most celebrated novel, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, tells the story of a charismatic schoolteacher’s catastrophic effect on her pupils. The Girls of Slender Means is a beautifully drawn portrait of young women living in a hostel in London in the giddy postwar d...

Εκδότης: FABER & FABER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4386-0557

Following the huge success of The Brooklyn Follies, Paul Auster offers a novel that is a dark puzzle: a game implicating both reader and writer, and an ingenious exploration of language and time. An old man sits in a room, with a single door and window, a bed, a desk and a chair. Each day he awakes with no memory, unsure of whether or not he is locked into the room. Attached to the few objects around him are one-word, hand-written labels and on the desk is a series of vaguely familiar black-and-white photographs and four piles of paper. Th...
