By: Arjouni, Jakob

Price: $6.50

Like a postmodern Aesop, Jakob Arjouni wittily punctures pretension and self-deception. These tales are characterized by ironic humor with an underlying note of melancholy. Among the delightful idiots collected here, the author offers a domineering mother whose rock star son fails to appreciate her efforts on his behalf; a hopeful young movie director with a bad case of writer's block; and an aging author of pulp fiction trying to write one good, serious book before he dies. They are all visited by a fairy who offers to grant one wish, with the exceptions of immortality, health, money, and... View more info

"Drowned, "set in the idyllic countryside during a short-lived Swedish summer, gets under one's skin from the first page, creating an atmosphere of foreboding in which even the perfume of freshly picked vegetables roasting in the kitchen becomes ominous. On the surface, the story couldn't be simpler. A single young woman visits her older sister, who is married to a writer as charismatic as he is violent. As the young woman falls under her brother-in-law's spell, the plot unfolds in a series of precisely rendered turns. Meanwhile the reader, anticipating the worst, hopes against hope that d...

Life is Short and Desire Endless

By: Lapeyre, Patrick

Price: $6.50

Publisher: OTHER PR LLC:

Seller ID: 9781590514849

ISBN: 159051484X

Condition: USED


Winner of the 2010 Prix Femina, this delicious novel revolves around a classic love triangle: two men and one woman. She is English, they are French and American. The Frenchman is married, the American is not. None of this makes any difference. The woman--elusive, unreliable, a classic femme fatale--flits back and forth between her two lovers, driving them both mad. Lapeyre's subtle, graceful, yet compulsively readable narrative shows us the folly of men who fall helplessly in love with women they don't understand. Its theme is universal and its humor is sly. It is the perfect introduction... View more info
