TRIPLE CROWN

TRIPLE CROWN

The richest prize in racing. The perfect motive to commit a crime ...Jeff Hinkley, a British Horseracing Authority investigator, has been seconded to the US Federal Anti-Corruption in Sports Agency (FACSA) where he has been asked to find a mole in their organisation, an informant who is passing on confidential information to fix races. Jeff goes in search of answers, taking on an undercover role as a groom on the backstretch at Belmont Park racetrack in New York. But he discovers far more than he was bargaining for, finding himself as the meat in the sandwich between FACSA and corrupt individuals who will stop at nothing, including murder, to capture the most elusive and lucrative prize in the world - the Triple Crown.

TWO YEARS EIGHT MONTHS TWENTY EIGHT NIGHTS

TWO YEARS EIGHT MONTHS TWENTY EIGHT NIGHTS

From Salman Rushdie, one of the great writers of our time, comes a spellbinding work of fiction that blends history, mythology, and a timeless love story. A lush, richly layered novel in which our world has been plunged into an age of unreason, Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights is a breathtaking achievement and an enduring testament to the power of storytelling. In the near future, after a storm strikes New York City, the strangenesses begin. A down-to-earth gardener finds that his feet no longer touch the ground. A graphic novelist awakens in his bedroom to a mysterious entity that resembles his own sub-Stan Lee creation. Abandoned at the mayor’s office, a baby identifies corruption with her mere presence, marking the guilty with blemishes and boils. A seductive gold digger is soon tapped to combat forces beyond imagining. Unbeknownst to them, they are all descended from the whimsical, capricious, wanton creatures known as the jinn, who live in a world separated from ours by a veil. Centuries ago, Dunia, a princess of the jinn, fell in love with a mortal man of reason. Together they produced an astonishing number of children, unaware of their fantastical powers, who spread across generations in the human world. Once the line between worlds is breached on a grand scale, Dunia’s children and others will play a role in an epic war between light and dark spanning a thousand and one nights - or two years, eight months, and twenty-eight nights. It is a time of enormous upheaval, in which beliefs are challenged, words act like poison, silence is a disease, and a noise may contain a hidden curse. Inspired by the traditional 'wonder tales' of the East, Salman Rushdie’s novel is a masterpiece about the age-old conflicts that remain in today’s world. Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights is satirical and bawdy, full of cunning and folly, rivalries and betrayals, kismet and karma, rapture and redemption.

VEGETARIAN

VEGETARIAN

Yeong-hye and her husband are ordinary people. He is an office worker with moderate ambitions and mild manners; she is an uninspired but dutiful wife. The acceptable flatline of their marriage is interrupted when Yeong-hye, seeking a more 'plant-like' existence, decides to become a vegetarian, prompted by grotesque recurring nightmares. In South Korea, where vegetarianism is almost unheard-of and societal mores are strictly obeyed, Yeong-hye's decision is a shocking act of subversion. Her passive rebellion manifests in ever more bizarre and frightening forms, leading her bland husband to self-justified acts of sexual sadism. His cruelties drive her towards attempted suicide and hospitalisation. She unknowingly captivates her sister's husband, a video artist. She becomes the focus of his increasingly erotic and unhinged artworks, while spiralling further and further into her fantasies of abandoning her fleshly prison and becoming - impossibly, ecstatically - a tree. Fraught, disturbing and beautiful, The Vegetarian is a novel about modern day South Korea, but also a novel about shame, desire and our faltering attempts to understand others, from one imprisoned body to another.

VELKÝ GATSBY - ZRCADLOVÁ ČETBA

VELKÝ GATSBY - ZRCADLOVÁ ČETBA

Velký Gatsby je nejslavnějším románem Francise Scotta Fitzgeralda. Příběh se odehrává v New Yorku 20. let minulého století, kdy nečekaná hospodářská prosperita přinesla i ztrátu morálních hodnot. Jay Gatsby se ve snaze získat milovanou dívku dostane do nejvyšších vrstev společnosti, kde je vyhledáván pro své bohatství i tajemství, jež ho obestírá, ale nikdy do ní opravdu nezapadne, neboť pro něj jsou stále nejvyšší hodnotou vztahy mezi lidmi. Gatsbyho tragický konec je absurdním omylem, jako by jen podtrhoval prázdnotu a povrchnost světa bohatých. Der große Gatsby ist der berühmteste Roman von Francis Scot Fitzgerald. Die Romangeschichte spielt sich in New York 20er Jahre des letzten Jahrhunderts ab, wann den unerwarteten wirtschaftlichen Aufschwung auch zum Verlust moralischer Werte geführt hat. Jay Gatsby in Bestrebung ein geliebtes Mädchen zu bekommen gerät in die höchste Gesellschaft, in der er umgeben von Reichtum und Geheimnisse aufgesucht ist, aber er hat in Wirklichkeit nie der Gesellschaft angehört, denn für ihn haben den höchsten Wert die zwischenmenschliche Beziehungen. Gatsby´s tragisches Ende ist ein absurder Fehler, als ob man die Leere und Oberflächlichkeit der Welt der Reichen unterstrichen hat.
