Содержание:
One May evening in London, as a result of a chance encounter and a split-second decision, a young climatologist called Adam Kindred loses everything - home, job, reputation, passport, credit cards, mobile phone - never to get them back. Adam has no choice. The police and a ruthless hit man are after him. So he goes underground, joining the ranks of the disappeared that throng London's lowest levels as he struggles to understand how his life has unravelled so spectacularly. His journey of discovery will take him along the River Thames, from affluent Chelsea to the sink estates of the East End. On the way he will encounter aristocrats, prostitutes, evangelists and a policewoman - and version after new version of himself. William Boyd's electric follow-up to Costa Novel of the Year Restless is a heart-in-mouth conspiracy novel about the fragility of social identity, the corruption at the heart of big business, and the secrets that lie hidden in the filthy underbelly of every...

Hilary Mantel

Wolf Hall

England in the 1520s is a heartbeat from disaster. If the king dies without a male heir, the country could be destroyed by civil war. Henry VIII wants to annul his marriage of twenty years, and marry Anne Boleyn. The pope and most of Europe oppose him. The quest for the petulant king's freedom destroys his advisor, the brilliant Cardinal Wolsey, and leaves a power vacuum and a deadlock. Into this impasse steps Thomas Cromwell. Son of a brutal blacksmith, a political genius, a briber, a bully and a charmer, Cromwell has broken all the rules of a rigid society in his rise to power, and is prepared to break some more. Rising from the ashes of personal disaster - the loss of his young family and of Wolsey, his beloved patron - he picks his way deftly through a court where 'man is wolf to man.' Pitting himself against parliament, the political establishment and the papacy, he is prepared to reshape England to his own and Henrv's desires. From one of our finest living writers,...
Les Miserables

Victor Hugo

Les Miserables

Hugo's epic tale of social injustice, politics, heroism and love is a towering work of Western literature. It follows in particular the fortunes of Jean Valjean who out of extreme poverty steals a loaf of bread and then spends many years trying to escape his reputation as a criminal. In later years he rises socially and is a respectable member of society; but he is not allowed to forget his past by the sadistic policeman Javert who is determined to expose him. As Valjean struggles to elude his nemesis, we meet many other unforgettable characters: the tragically victimized Fantine and her daughter Cosette, whom Valjean has sworn to protect; the rascally Thenardier and the quick-witted street urchin Gavroche. Each of them prepares to meet their destinies at the barricades as the July Revolution comes to a dramatic climax.

Curzio Malaparte: The Narrative Contract Strained

Within a biographical context, this critical study explores the way in which Malaparte used his political pamphlets, prose poems, satirical verse and travel writings for the purposes of self-re-invention. The changing nature of the writer's rapport with his readership is also closely analysed, as this volume sheds new light on the controversies which surrounded one of the most versatile Italian writers of the twentieth century.
