  • Speedboat by Renata Adler
    Speedboat (English, Paperback) Renata Adler

    When Speedboat burst on the scene in the late '70s it was like nothing readers had encountered before. It seemed to disregard the rules of the novel, but it wore its unconventionality with ease. Reading it was a pleasure of a new, unexpected kind. Above all, there was its voice, ambivalent, curious, wry, the voice of Jen Fain, a journalist negotiating the fraught landscape of contemporary urban...

  • Memories Of The Future by Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky
    Memories Of The Future (English, Paperback) Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky

    Written in Soviet Moscow in the 1920s?but considered too subversive even to show to a publisher?the seven tales included here attest to Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky's boundless imagination, black humor, and breathtaking irony: a man loses his way in the vast black waste of his own small room; the Eiffel Tower runs amok; a kind soul dreams of selling ?everything you need for suicide?; an absentminded...

    What is it that binds human beings to other animals? T. H. White, the author ofThe Once and Future King and Mistress Masham's Repose, was a young writer who found himself rifling through old handbooks of falconry.

    Amsterdam Stories (English, Paperback) Nescio

    No one has written more feelingly and more beautifully than Nescio about the madness and sadness, courage and vulnerability of youth: its big plans and vague longings, not to mention the binges, crashes, and marathon walks and talks.
