    A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER CHOSEN AS A BOOK OF 2020 BY THE SUNDAY TIMES , OBSERVER , GUARDIAN , i PAPER , FINANCIAL TIMES , NEW STATESMAN , SCOTSMAN , IRISH TIMES , BBC.COM, WATERSTONES.COM 'You have to read Apeirogon ' Sunday Times 'Nothing like any book you've ever read' MICHAEL CUNNINGHAM 'An essential hymn to peace and forgiveness' independent.co.uk The novel of a lifetime about two men and their daughters: divided by conflict, yet united in grief.

    Rami Elhanan and Bassam Aramin live near one another - yet they exist worlds apart. Rami is Israeli. Bassam is Palestinian. Rami's license plate is yellow. Bassam's license plate is green. It takes Rami fifteen minutes to drive to the West Bank. The same journey for Bassam takes an hour and a half.

    Both men have lost their daughters. Rami's thirteen-year-old girl Smadar was killed by a suicide bomber while out shopping with her friends. Bassam's ten-year-old daughter Abir was shot and killed by a member of the border police outside her school. There was a candy bracelet in her pocket she hadn't had time to eat yet.

    The men become the best of friends.

    In this epic novel - named for a shape with a countably infinite number of sides - Colum McCann crosses centuries and continents, stitching time, art, history, nature and politics into a tapestry of friendship, love, loss and belonging. Musical, muscular, delicate and soaring, Apeirogon is the novel for our times.

    'A quite extraordinary novel. Colum McCann has found the form and voice to tell the most complex of stories, with an unexpected friendship between two men at its powerfully beating heart' KAMILA SHAMSIE

  • Thérèse Raquin

    Emile Zola

    • Bloomsbury uk
    • 1 January 1998

    A gothic tale of murder and adultery, Therese Raquin was denounced as pornography on its publication in 1867. "Putrid literature" was how Louis Ulbach described the novel in a contemporary review. Zola defended himself against these attacks in his preface to the second edition, in which he outlined his aim to produce a new, "scientific" form of realism. The novel marks a crucial step in Zola''s development and is a major early work of Naturalism. In his introduction to Therese Raquin, Brian Nelson places the novel in its cultural, intellectual and artistic contexts, and compares Zola''s scientific aims with his actual practice in this work. The scientific status of Naturalist fiction remains problematic; in the final analysis it is influenced by literary models and conventions. Zola''s powerful mythopoeic imagination does much to counteract the mechanistic view of humanity the novel was intended to embody. The myth of the fall is, indeed, fundamental to Zola''s Naturalistic vision.>

    • 28 May 2016

    REVISED EDITION WITH FIVE THOUSAND WORDS BONUS MATERIAL AND NEW PHOTOGRAPHS M Train begins in the tiny Greenwich Village cafe where Smith goes every morning for black coffee, ruminates on the world as it is and the world as it was, and writes in her notebook. Through prose that shifts fluidly between dreams and reality, past and present, and across a landscape of creative aspirations and inspirations, we travel to Frida Kahlo's Casa Azul in Mexico; to a meeting of an Arctic explorer's society in Berlin; to a ramshackle seaside bungalow in New York's Far Rockaway that Smith acquires just before Hurricane Sandy hits; and to the graves of Genet, Plath, Rimbaud and Mishima.

    Woven throughout are reflections on the writer's craft and on artistic creation. Here, too, are singular memories of Smith's life in Michigan and the irremediable loss of her husband, Fred Sonic Smith. Braiding despair with hope and consolation, illustrated with her signature Polaroids, M Train is a meditation on travel, detective shows, literature and coffee. It is a powerful, deeply moving book by one of the most remarkable artists at work today.

    Quelle différence y a-t-il entre une jeune paysanne grecque fuyant Smyrne incendiée par les Turcs en 1922, et une lolita américaine qui découvre, à l'âge de quinze ans, qu'elle est aussi un garçon ? Deux générations.
    C'est en effet ce qui sépare Desdemona et Cal, la grand-mère et la petite-fille. C'est aussi la durée dans laquelle s'inscrit cette extraordinaire saga gréco-américaine. Mi-épopée (à la troisième personne), mi-roman d'apprentissage (à la première), ce livre est un hybride. Tout comme son héros/héroïne, qui connaît la joie - et la douleur - d'appartenir aux deux sexes, avant d'opter définitivement pour celui qui lui convient.
    Des collines d'Asie Mineure aux villas cossues de Grosse Pointe, du fracas des canonnières dans le Bosphore aux explosions des grenades lacrymogènes dans les rues de Detroit, du ragtime au rock'n'roll, un demi-siècle d'Histoire se déroule sous nos yeux. Pour aboutir à ce conte de fées moderne la transformation d'une teenager en un personnage mythologique. Dix ans après Virgin Suicides, Jeffrey Eugenides est de retour avec ce livre qui transcende tous les genres : c'est une idylle, une comédie postmoderne, une histoire de la littérature, un récit érotique, une confession, une élégie.
    Bref, un roman irrésistible.

    A beautiful new limited edition paperback of The Song of Achilles , published as part of the Bloomsbury Modern Classics list The god touches his finger to the arrow's fletching. Then he breathes, a puff of air - as if to send dandelions flying, to push toy boats over water. And the arrow flies, straight and silent, in a curving, downward arc towards Achilles' back.

    Greece in the age of heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the court of King Peleus and his perfect son Achilles. Despite their differences, the boys develop a tender friendship, a bond which blossoms into something deeper as they grow into young men.

    But when Helen of Sparta is kidnapped, Achilles is dispatched to distant Troy to fulfil his destiny. Torn between love and fear for his friend, Patroclus follows, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they hold dear.
