Anna Burns Milkman című, friss Man Booker-díjas regényét hamarosan modern klasszikusként fogjuk emlegetni. A hangulatos borító egy jóval komolyabb, és elgondolkodtatóbb történetet takar, ami a pletyka romboló hatását mutatja be egy fiatal lány és egy idősebb férfi megrázó kapcsolatán keresztül. A könyv jelenleg is kapható boltunkban, más jelöltek műveivel, és a nemzetközi nyertes, Olga Tokarczuk alkotásával egyetemben.

    The Overstory

    Powers,Richard
    Kiadó: William Heinemann London
    'It's not possible for Powers to write an uninteresting book.' Margaret AtwoodA monumental novel about trees and people by one of our most 'prodigiously talented' (The New York Times Book Review) novelists.The Overstory unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. An Air Force loadmaster in the Vietnam War is shot out of the sky, thensaved by falling into a banyan. An artist inherits a hundred years of photographic portraits, all of the same doomed American chestnut. A hard-partying undergraduate in the late 1980s electrocutes herself, dies and is sent back into life by creatures ofair and light. A hearing- and speech-impaired scientist discovers that trees are communicating with one another. These four, and five other strangers - each summoned in different ways by trees - are brought together in a last and violent stand to savethe continent's few remaining acres of virgin forest.There is a world alongside ours - vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.

    The Mars Room

    Kushner, Rachel
    Kiadó: Jonathan Cape
    **SHORTLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2018****A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER**'An unforgettable novel.' DAILY TELEGRAPH'More knowing about prison life [than Orange Is The New Black]... so powerful.' NEW YORK TIMES'One of America's finest writers.' VOGUERomy Hall is at the start of two consecutive life sentences, plus six years, at Stanville Women's Correctional Facility. Outside is the world from which she has been permanently severed: the San Francisco of her youth, changed almost beyond recognition.The Mars Room strip club where she once gave lap dances for a living. And her seven-year-old son, Jackson, now in the care of Romy's estranged mother.Inside is a new reality to adapt to: thousands of women hustling for the bare essentials needed to survive. The deadpan absurdities of institutional living, which Kushner details with humour and precision. Daily acts of violence by guards and prisonersalike. Allegiances formed over liquor brewed in socks, and stories shared through sewage pipes.Romy sees the future stretch out ahead of her in a long, unwavering line - until news from outside brings a ferocious urgency to her existence, challenging her to escape her own destiny and culminating in a climax of almost unbearable intensity. ThroughRomy - and through a cast of astonishing characters populating The Mars Room - Rachel Kushner presents not just a bold and unsentimental panorama of life on the margins of contemporary America, but an excoriating attack on the prison-industrial complex.

    Flights

    Tokarczuk, Olga
    Kiadó: Fitzcarraldo Editions
    WINNER MAN BOOKER INTERNATIONAL PRIZE 2018Flights, a novel about travel in the twenty-first century and human anatomy, is Olga Tokarczuk's most ambitious to date. It interweaves travel narratives and reflections on travel with an in-depth exploration of the human body, broaching life, death,motion, and migration. From the seventeenth century, we have the story of the Dutch anatomist Philip Verheyen, who dissected and drew pictures of his own amputated leg. From the eighteenth century, we have the story of a North African-born slave turnedAustrian courtier stuffed and put on display after his death. In the nineteenth century, we follow Chopin's heart as it makes the covert journey from Paris to Warsaw. In the present we have the trials of a wife accompanying her much older husband as heteaches a course on a cruise ship in the Greek islands, and the harrowing story of a young husband whose wife and child mysteriously vanish on a holiday on a Croatian island. With her signature grace and insight, Olga Tokarczuk guides the reader beyondthe surface layer of modernity and towards the core of the very nature of humankind.
