Μάιος του 1937. Ένας τριαντάρης περιμένει δίπλα στον ανελκυστήρα μιας πολυκατοικίας του Λένινγκραντ. Περιμένει όλη τη νύχτα ότι ανά πάσα στιγμή θα τον οδηγήσουν στο Αρχηγείο της Υπηρεσίας Κρατικής Ασφάλειας. Καμιά από τις διασημότητες που γνώρισε την περασμένη δεκαετία δεν μπορεί τώρα να του φανεί χρήσιμη. Και ελάχιστοι από όσους οδηγούνται στο Αρχηγείο επιστρέφουν. Αυτή είναι η αφετηρία του νέου αριστουργηματικού μυθιστορήματος του Μπαρνς, μια ιστορία για τη σύγκρουση ζωής και τέχνης, το θάρρος, τη δειλία, και τον πόνο του αναπόφευκτου συμβιβασμού. Το βιβλίο αναφέρεται στη ζωή, το έργο του Ντμίτρι Σοστακόβιτς καθώς και στη σύγκρουσή του με το σταλινικό καθεστώς.

In Wraith, New York Times bestselling Reeves-Stevens team offer a no-holds-barred adrenaline rush perfect for fans of high-speed thrillers. In 1995, the CIA made a breakthrough that they hid from the world because it would change everything in modern science—but some secrets can't stay hidden. A rogue force has learned how to make disembodied minds capable of lethal action. Ghosts have been weaponized, and now a Russian general has infiltrated the U.S. with a squad of "berzerkers"—an army that can't be killed because they're already dead. Only one person knew the general's plans, but she died in a car crash. The only person who can communicate with her is the cop who was at her side when she died—and now he must race to stop a force that could end life as we know it.

Through his historical novels, adventure stories, ghost stories, satires, fairy tales, and retellings of myths and legends, Leon Garfield consistently portrays the mystery of human identity, which he describes as "the only mystery one can unravel endlessly". In this first book-length study of the author of Smith (1967), The Apprentices (1976), John Diamond (1981), and The December Rose (1986), Roni Natov engagingly chronicles the career of a natural storyteller, a man whose work is permeated with the theme of spiritual renewal. Natov, asserts that, like Charles Dickens (to whom he is most often compared) and the romantics before him, Garfield explores how the outcast child finds the potential to repair the fractured family by creating symbolic bonds with the larger community. Virtually all Garfield's work, Natov argues, gives voice to the private concerns of those rendered poor and impotent by class and social order. She shows how in his largely allegorical works Garfield dramatizes the problems of members of the underclass while asserting their individualism and vitality. An insightful and biographically rich interview with Garfield prefaces Natov's lucid, genre-organized study. From there she analyzes the theme of the search for the father in Garfield's early novels and proceeds to cover the ghost stories, the fiction of satire and parody, the historical fiction, the myths, fairy tales, and legends, and what she calls the "new morality" in Garfield's fiction. In discussing Garfield's later novels she focuses again on the theme of the search for the father. In assessing Garfield's place among contemporary children's writers, Natov finds him unique in the way he uses his heroes: for himthey represent those on the brink, still malleable though aware and able to articulate their perpetual state of becoming. In them, and in their historical past, Garfield finds hope for the future, Natov contends: she sees Garfield as interested in resurrecting a new social order out of what has been discarded from the traditional story of British history. Natov's analysis is essential reading not only for students of children's literature but also for those interested in historical fiction generally, for, as Garfield has said, although young readers are his primary audience, he does not necessarily write with the child in mind.

The stuff of dreams—hopes, fears, and longings—represents universal subjects to which everyone can relate. Dreams take on a new cultural currency in this collection of dream-poems, one for each American president. Exploring power, as well as its limits and possibilities, linguistics instructor Charles Barasch plays no favorites, making light of the sense of entitlement and self-importance that afflicts too many politicians. Fun to read, humorous, and laced with events of historical interest, each poem gives a dose of insight into the president’s life and his relationships with others, including his family, allies, and rivals. Where contemporary people or important references to American history—such as slavery and the Indian wars—occur, notes explain and contextualize them within the poem’s meaning. Published during an election year, this book offers a well-timed look at politicians, some much-needed laughs at leaders who take themselves too seriously, and a fun platform from which readers can start to explore the lives of those who, for better or worse, have led America.
