Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus

At once a Gothic thriller, a passionate romance, and a cautionary tale about the dangers of science, Frankenstein tells the story of committed science student Victor Frankenstein. Obsessed with discovering the cause of generation and life and bestowing animation upon lifeless matter, he assembles a human being from stolen body parts but; upon bringing it to life, he recoils in horror at the creature's hideousness. Tormented by isolation and loneliness, the once-innocent creature turns to evil and unleashes a campaign of murderous revenge against his creator.

The End of the Affair

Set in London during and just after World War II, Graham Greene's The End of the Affair is a pathos-laden examination of a three-way collision between love of self, love of another and love of God. The affair in question involves Maurice Bendrix, a solipsistic novelist, and a dutifully married woman, Sarah Miles. The lovers meet at a party thrown by Sarah's dreary civil-servant husband, and proceed to liberate each other from boredom and routine unhappiness. Reflecting on the ebullient beginnings of their romance, Bendrix recalls: "There was never any question in those days of who wanted whom--we were together in desire". Indeed, the affair goes on unchecked for several years until, during an afternoon tryst, Bendrix goes downstairs to look for intruders in his basement and a bomb falls on the building. Sarah rushes down to find him lying under a fallen door, and immediately makes a deal with God, whom she has never particularly cared for: "I love him and I'll do anything if you'll make him alive... I'll give him up forever, only let him be alive with a chance... People can love each other without seeing each other, can't they, they love You all their lives without seeing You". Bendrix, as evidenced by his ability to tell the story, is not dead, merely unconscious, and so Sarah must keep her promise. She breaks off the relationship without giving a reason, leaving Bendrix mystified and angry. The only explanation he can think of is that she's left him for another man. It isn't until years later, when he hires a private detective to ascertain the truth, that he learns of her impassioned vow. Sarah herself comes to understand her move through a strange rationalisation. Writing to God in her journal, she says: "You willed our separation, but he [Bendrix] willed it too. He worked for it with his anger and his jealousy, and he worked for it with his love. For he gave me so much love, and I gave him so much love that soon there wasn't anything left, when we'd finished, but You". It's as though the pull toward faith were inevitable, if incomprehensible--perhaps as punishment for her sin of adultery. In her final years, Sarah's faith only deepens, even as she remains haunted by the bombing and the power of her own attraction to God. Set against the backdrop of a war-ravaged city, The End of the Affair is equally haunting as it lays forth the question of what constitutes love in troubling, unequivocal terms. --Melanie Rehak

LA VIE EST FACILE, NE T’INQUIÈTE PAS

Comment avais-je pu, une nouvelle fois, céder à l’insistance de Félix ? Par je ne savais quel miracle, il réussissait toujours à m’avoir : il trouvait un argument, un encouragement pour me convaincre d’y aller. Chaque fois, je me laissais berner, me disant que, peut-être, il y aurait un je-ne-sais-quoi qui me ferait flancher. Pourtant, je connaissais Félix comme si je l’avais fait, et nos goûts étaient diamétralement opposés. Alors, quand il pensait et décidait à ma place, il était fatalement à côté de la plaque. J’aurais pourtant dû le savoir, depuis le temps que nous étions amis. Et voilà comment, pour la sixième fois consécutive, je passais un samedi soir en compagnie d’un parfait imbécile.

The Grace Year

The Instant New York Times Bestseller! A speculative thriller in the vein of The Handmaid’s Tale and The Power. Optioned by Universal and Elizabeth Banks to be a major motion picture! “A visceral, darkly haunting fever dream of a novel and an absolute page-turner. Liggett’s deeply suspenseful book brilliantly explores the high cost of a misogynistic world that denies women power and does it with a heart-in-your-throat, action-driven story that’s equal parts horror-laden fairy tale, survival story, romance, and resistance manifesto. I couldn’t stop reading.” – Libba Bray, New York Times bestselling author Survive the year. No one speaks of the grace year. It’s forbidden. In Garner County, girls are told they have the power to lure grown men from their beds, to drive women mad with jealousy. They believe their very skin emits a powerful aphrodisiac, the potent essence of youth, of a girl on the edge of womanhood. That’s why they’re banished for their sixteenth year, to release their magic into the wild so they can return purified and ready for marriage. But not all of them will make it home alive. Sixteen-year-old Tierney James dreams of a better life―a society that doesn’t pit friend against friend or woman against woman, but as her own grace year draws near, she quickly realizes that it’s not just the brutal elements they must fear. It’s not even the poachers in the woods, men who are waiting for a chance to grab one of the girls in order to make a fortune on the black market. Their greatest threat may very well be each other. With sharp prose and gritty realism, The Grace Year examines the complex and sometimes twisted relationships between girls, the women they eventually become, and the difficult decisions they make in-between.

Weir Of Hermiston: An Unfinished Romance

The Lord Justice-Clerk was a stranger in that part of the country; but his lady wife was known there from a child, as her race had been before her. The old “riding Rutherfords of Hermiston,” of whom she was the last descendant, had been famous men of yore, ill neighbours, ill subjects, and ill husbands to their wives though not their properties. Tales of them were rife for twenty miles about; and their name was even printed in the page of our Scots histories, not always to their credit. One bit the dust at Flodden; one was hanged at his peel door by James the Fifth; another fell dead in a carouse with Tom Dalyell; while a fourth (and that was Jean’s own father) died presiding at a Hell-Fire Club, of which he was the founder.

Le violon du tzigane

Mirka !... Mirka !... Mirka !... Le premier appel, lancé d’une voix rude, témoignait déjà d’une certaine impatience ; le second se fit irrité, le troisième revêtit une intonation menaçante. Mais personne n’y répondit. Et la vieille servante, ses gros sourcils blancs furieusement froncés, rentra dans sa cuisine en grommelant : – Encore à courir, cette mauvaise bohémienne ! Attends un peu, je te recevrai comme il convient, tout à l’heure ! Cependant, la voix d’Aglaja était fort bien parvenue aux oreilles de la destinataire. Mais la petite tête brune de Mirka avait répondu à l’appel par un mouvement de défi, et le maigre petit corps vêtu de vieux vêtements déteints s’était enfoncé plus commodément encore dans le trou creusé du hêtre centenaire où Mirka avait élu domicile.

Amour fratricide

Le petit hameau de Saint-Géran, situé sur la baie de la Fresnaye, dans les Côtes-du-Nord, n’est habité que par quelques familles de pêcheurs. C’est dans cette pauvre bourgade que se dressait, il y a une cinquantaine d’années, la chaumière de Pierre Guilo. Depuis de longues générations, les Guilo étaient pêcheurs, et Pierre, comme ses ancêtres, vivait péniblement du produit de sa pêche. C’était un honnête homme dans toute l’acception du mot, et, bon camarade, hardi marin, toujours prêt à voler au secours des malheureux en danger sur la grande eau traîtresse, – il était aimé de ses proches et estimé du tous ceux qui le connaissaient. Vingt-cinq ans auparavant, il avait épousé Catherine, une orpheline, aînée de sept enfants, qui ne lui avait apporté en dot que sa jeunesse et son courage. Ensemble, ils vivaient, sinon aisés, du moins heureux, et la naissance attendue d’un enfant, au début de leur union, avait semblé devoir couronner leur bonheur.

A Little Princess

Once on a dark winter's day, when the yellow fog hung so thick and heavy in the streets of London that the lamps were lighted and the shop windows blazed with gas as they do at night, an odd-looking little girl sat in a cab with her father and was driv-en rather slowly through the big thoroughfares. She sat with her feet tucked under her, and leaned against her father, who held her in his arm, as she stared out of the window at the passing people with a queer old-fashioned thoughtfulness in her big eyes. She was such a little girl that one did not expect to see such a look on her small face. It would have been an old look for a child of twelve, and Sara Crewe was only seven. The fact was, however, that she was always dreaming and thinking odd things and could not herself remember any time when she had not been thinking things about grown-up people and the world they belonged to. She felt as if she had lived a long, long time.

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. A novel

Number-one New York Times best-seller and the perfect holiday gift. A Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick "Beautifully written and incredibly funny, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is about the importance of friendship and human connection. I fell in love with Eleanor, an eccentric and regimented loner whose life beautifully unfolds after a chance encounter with a stranger; I think you will fall in love, too!" (Reese Witherspoon) No one's ever told Eleanor that life should be better than fine. Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she's thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. But everything changes when Eleanor meets Raymond, the bumbling and deeply unhygienic IT guy from her office. When she and Raymond together save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk, the three become the kinds of friends who rescue one another from the lives of isolation they have each been living. And it is Raymond's big heart that will ultimately help Eleanor find the way to repair her own profoundly damaged one. Soon to be a major motion picture produced by Reese Witherspoon, Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine is the smart, warm, and uplifting story of an out-of-the-ordinary heroine whose deadpan weirdness and unconscious wit make for an irresistible journey as she realizes. . . The only way to survive is to open your heart.
