Winner of the Prix Goncourt (France), the Leipzig Prize (Germany), Premio Von Rezzori (Italy), shortlisted for the 2017 International Man Booker Prize, shortlisted for the Dublin Literary Award

As night falls over Vienna, Franz Ritter, an insomniac musicologist, takes to his sickbed with an unspecified illness and spends a restless night drifting between dreams and memories, revisiting the important chapters of his life: his ongoing fascination with the Middle East and his numerous travels to Istanbul, Aleppo, Damascus, and Tehran, as well as the various writers, artists, musicians, academics, orientalists, and explorers who populate this vast dreamscape. At the center of these memories is his elusive, unrequited love, Sarah, a fiercely intelligent French scholar caught in the intricate tension between Europe and the Middle East.

With exhilarating prose and sweeping erudition, Mathias Énard pulls astonishing elements from disparate sources--nineteenth-century composers and esoteric orientalists, Balzac and Agatha Christie--and binds them together in a most magical way.

Le 27 octobre 1949, le nouvel avion d'Air France, le Constellation, lance par l'extravagant M. Howard Hughes, accueille trente-sept passagers. Le 28 octobre, l'avion ne repond plus a la tour de controle. Il a disparu en descendant sur l'ile Santa Maria, dans l'archipel des Acores. Aucun survivant. La question que pose Adrien Bosc dans cet ambitieux premier roman n'est pas tant comment, mais pourquoi ? Quel est l'enchainement d'infimes causalites qui, mises bout a bout, ont precipite l'avion vers le mont Redondo ? Quel est le hasard objectif, notion chere aux surrealistes, qui rend necessaire ce tombeau d'acier ? Et qui sont les passagers ? Si l'on connait Marcel Cerdan, l'amant boxeur d'Edith Piaf, si l'on se souvient de cette musicienne prodige que fut Ginette Neveu, dont une partie du violon sera retrouvee des annees apres, l'auteur lie les destins entre eux. Entendre les morts, ecrire leur legende minuscule et offrir a quarantehuit hommes et femmes, comme autant de constellations, vie et recit.

    Things put underground in New Orleans don't often stay there. Even things that should - like bodies, and secrets.

    How do you fight an enemy you can't see that can kill on a whim? In 1820s New Orleans, on the eve of her twenty-first birthday, Zéolie Cheval discovers the mangled body of her father murdered in his bed and a maniacal voice haunting the recesses of her mind. When the priest sent to comfort her is killed while the house is swarming with police, Zéolie becomes entangled in a web of mystery that takes her from the French Quarter, to the Ursuline Convent in the Ninth Ward, and deep into the Louisiana swamps.

    Officer Louis Saucier, who is losing his heart to Zéolie and his grip on logical reality, helps her find the pieces to her puzzle. The mother superior of the Ursulines offers assistance from a mediumistic nun and a voodoo priestess, blurring the lines between the spiritual and the supernatural.

    After opening the family crypt to find it uninhabited, Zéolie realizes that her father lied about her mother's death - amongst other things. Now, Zéolie must come to terms with magic she inherited from her grandmother and the price that comes with it.

    Step inside the magic and mystery of the 1820s French Quarter to see if an unlikely menagerie can help Zéolie take down a murderous maniac while she shields the officer she loves. Can she harness powers she didn't know she had? Or, will she make the ultimate sacrifice?

    The crew of a French reconnaissance plane during WW1 consisted of just two men: a pilot and an observer. Two such men are Jean Herbillon and Claude Maury. Herbillon's dreams of glory as an air ace have been dashed after only a few months at the front; Maury suffers from a broken heart--his only hope is that his exploits as a pilot will win back his lost love. Together the two form one of the best crews in the air, fighting in the first aerial conflict in history--one in which a combatant can count his life expectancy in weeks. The pressure of war forges a strong bond between the two flyers, but can it survive the discovery that they are both in love with the same woman?

    Joseph Kessel's autobiographical novel is a staggering tale of courage, brotherhood and loss.

    Cruel tales From The Thirteenth Floor

    Cruel tales From The Thirteenth Floor

    $17.95
    More Info
    In sixteen ferocious short stories, French author Luc Lang encapsulates the brutality of everyday life. Each tale is an admixture of tragedy, comedy, ridicule, and pain. Compassion lurks somewhere, perhaps, but pity is conspicuous by its absence. Lang's curt, agitated prose disassembles daily life with a swift, unflinching hand and examines it with a sharp, analytic eye. Skinning quotidian moments to bare, raw impulses, confusions, and the agonies underneath, the stories in Cruel Tales from the Thirteenth Floor show the mundane grind of the everyday forces that are fueled by cruel calculation and amoral happenstance and shot through with bizarre surprise. The results are at once coldly comic and powerfully tragic. Interpreting human interactions as a series of precise jabs and desperate flailings, Cruel Tales from the Thirteenth Floor tells truths about the darker sides of our potential and our well-meaning urges dimmed by chance. Luc Lang is an award-winning French author of many works, including Voyage sur la ligne d'horizon; Furies; and Les Indiens. He has also published the startling autobiographical work 11 septembre mon amour. He teaches aesthetics at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts de Paris et Cergy. Donald Nicholson-Smith has translated noir or noirish fiction by Jean-Patrick Manchette and Thierry Jonquet, and, with Alyson Waters, Yasmina Khadra's Cousin K (Nebraska, 2013). Born in Manchester, England, he is a longtime resident of New York City.

    Los cuentos de Bolaño condensan en el breve espacio que caracteriza las obras del género todo su universo literario, uno de los más rupturistas y personales de la literatura contemporánea en español: la literatura que lo impregna todo; la sexualidad; las vidas de seres que pese a ser comunes, transcurren entre lo cotidiano y lo extraordinario; la rebeldía de aquellos que viven en la estrecha frontera que separa el sistema de la marginalidad; el viaje como huida pero también como forma de vida; la necesidad desevelar lo incierto; la juventud; la violencia y las tramas policiales; el arte como obsesión, y la búsqueda continuada de un espacio propio en un lugar ajeno.

    Pertenencientes a los títulos Putas asesinas, El gaucho insufrible, Llamadas telefónicas y El secreto del mal, y escritas durante toda su vida, las piezas narrativas que componen este libro se enriquecen y adquieren un significado diferente en el diálogo que establecen entre ellas.

    ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

    In the brief space of his short stories, Bolaño manages to condense his entire literary universe, one of the most disruptive and personal of contemporary Spanish literature: the literature that permeates everything; sexuality; the lives of characters that despite being common, live amongst the everyday and the extraordinary; the rebellion of those who live on the narrow border that separates the system from marginality; travel as an escape but also as a way of life; the need to reveal the uncertain; youth; violence and police plots; art as an obsession, and the continued search for one's own space in a foreign place.

    Belonging to the collections: Murdering Whores, The Insufferable Gaucho, Last Evenings on Earth, and The Secret of Evil, the pieces that make up this book become more enriched and acquire a different meaning as they establish a dialogue amongst them.
