Bathroom (Dalkey)

More Info
First published in France in 1985, The Bathroom was Jean-Philippe Toussaint's debut novel, and it heralded a new generation of innovative French literature. In this playful and perplexing book, we meet a young Parisian researcher who lives inside his bathroom. As he sits in his tub meditating on existence (and refusing to tell us his name), the people around him--his girlfriend, Edmondsson, the Polish painters in his kitchen--each in their own way further enables his peculiar lifestyle, supporting his eccentric quest for immobility. But an invitation to the Austrian embassy shakes up his stable world, prompting him to take a risk and leave his bathroom . . .

    More Info
    ¡UNA SUPERPRODUCCIÓN DE LOS CREADORES DE E.T. Y EL AUTOR DE MATILDA Y DE CHARLIE Y LA FÁBRICA DE CHOCOLATE! Nuestro amigo el gigante no es un gigante rompehuesos cualquiera...Es demasiado amable y desordenado. Y eso es una suerte enorme para la pequeña Sofía, porque si cualquiera de los otros gigantes se la hubiera llevado en mitad de la noche, pronto se habría convertido en su desayuno. Cuando Sofía oye que los gigantes se van a ir de una galopada a Inglaterra para zamparse a unos cuantos mocosos muy apetitosos, ¡ella y su amigo el gigante deciden detenerlos de una vez y por todas!

    ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

    Soon to be a major motion picture directed by Steven Spielberg! Starring Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Penelope Wilton, Jemaine Clement, Bill Hader, and Adam Godley.

    The BFG is no ordinary bone-crunching giant. He is far too nice and jumbly. It's lucky for Sophie that he is. Had she been carried off in the middle of the night by the Bloodbottler, or any of the other giants--rather than the BFG--she would have soon become breakfast. When Sophie hears that the giants are flush-bunking off to England to swollomp a few nice little chiddlers, she decides she must stop them once and for all. And the BFG is going to help her!

    Billion Voices: China's Search for a Common Language

    $9.95
    More Info
    Mandarin, Guoyu or Putonghua? "Chinese" is a language known by many names, and China is a country home to many languages. Since the turn of the century linguists and politicians have been on a mission to create a common language for China. From the radical intellectuals of the May Fourth Movement, to leaders such as Chiang Kai-shek, and Mao Zedong, all fought to push the boundaries of language reform. Now, internet users take the Chinese language in new and unpredictable directions. David Moser tells the remarkable story of China's language unification agenda and its controversial relationship with modern politics, challenging our ideas of what it means to speak Chinese.
    Birth of a Bridge

    Birth of a Bridge

    $16.95
    More Info
    From one of the most exciting novelists writing in France today comes this literary saga of a dozen men and women - engineers, designers, machinery operators, cable riggers - all employees of the international consortium charged with building a bridge somewhere in a mythical and fantastic California.

    Told on a sweeping scale reminiscent of classic American adventure films, this Médicis Prize-winning novel chronicles the lives of these workers, who represent a microcosm of not just mythic California, but of humanity as a whole. Their collective effort to complete the megaproject recounts one of the oldest of human dramas, to domesticate - and to radically transform - our world through built form, with all the dramatic tension it brings: a threatened strike, an environmental dispute, sabotage, accidents, career moves, and love affairs ... Here generations and social classes cease to exist, and everyone and everything converges toward the bridge as metaphor, a cross-cultural impression of America today.

    Kerangal's writing has been widely praised for its scope, originality, and use of language. The style of her prose is rich and innovative, playing with different registers (from the most highly literary to the most colloquial slang), taking risks and inventing words, and playing with speed and tension through grammatical ellipsis and elision. She employs a huge vocabulary and, most strikingly, brings together words not often combined to evoke startling comparisons. Not since Vikram Seth's Golden Gate has such a great Californian novel been told.
