Book Excerpt :

Povestiri traduse în peste 20 de limbi. Volumul de față grupează integral povestirile din /emArmata de cavalerie, parțial ciclul odesit și alte cîteva texte. Prospețimea privirii auctoriale, alături de poeticitatea textelor – Isaac Babel este un rafinat stilist –, participă la conturarea unor personaje complexe, veridice. Prin fața cititorului se perindă cavaleriști (comandanți, comisari, simpli soldați), țărani, clerici, hoți, negustori, cu toții plini de viață, departe de orice schematism și ostentație. Prin intermediul unor scrisori trimise de pe front, al unor frînturi din zilele de groază, de acalmie ori de pregătire de luptă, dar și prin decuparea unor scene de viață din mediul evreiesc ori din propriul trecut, autorul se descoperă ca pictor ce poate cuprinde în cîteva trăsături de penel, subtil, comic și tragic, destine și înțelepciune, omenescul din om. "Nu poți să nu te întrebi cum ar fi scris Isaac Babel dacă n-ar fi trăit în vremuri atît de tulburate. Fără teroarea istoriei, am fi vorbit acum despre el, poate, cum vorbim despre orice alt celebru artist european.“ (The Guardian) "Lectura lui Babel amintește de tînărul Tolstoi, de Maupassant, Cehov, Stephen Crane și Șalom Alehem. Cu toate acestea, Isaac Babel e diferit: el este un cronicar al situațiilor imposibile, ale căror claritate și precizie dau ficțiunii intensitate lirică și luminozitate.“ (emKirkus Reviews) "Lumea este pentru mine ca un spectacol uriaș, în fața căruia eu sînt singurul spectator fără binoclu. Orchestra anunță preludiul celui de-al treilea act, scena este departe, ca într-un vis, inima îmi tresaltă de plăcere – n-ar fi păcat ca în fața unui asemenea spectacol să fiu orbit de o banală pereche de lentile?“ (Isaac Babel)

Book Short Summary:

An acclaimed historian unfolds a monumental, eyewitness page-turner on the tragic fall of France to Hitler’s Third Reich at the outset of WWII. As an international war correspondent and radio commentator, William L. Shirer didn’t just research the fall of France. He was there. In just six weeks, he watched the Third Reich topple one of the world’s oldest military powers—and institute a rule of terror and paranoia. Based on in-person conversation with the leaders, diplomats, generals, and ordinary citizens who both shaped the events of this time and lived through them on a daily basis, Shirer shapes a compelling account of historical events—without losing sight of the personal experience. From the heroic efforts of the Freedom Fighters to the tactical military misjudgments that caused the fall and the daily realities of life for French citizens under Nazi rule, this fascinating and exhaustively documented account from one of the twentieth Century’s most important historians makes the events of the fall accessible to a younger audience in vivid and memorable style.

Book Short Summary:

A sweeping novel of world war, migration, and the search for new beginnings in a new land, The Sound of One Hand Clapping was both critically acclaimed and a bestseller in Australia. Recognized with the Australian Booksellers’ Book of the Year Award and the Vance Palmer Prize for Fiction, it now introduces to an international readership a young Australian who is emerging as one of our most talented new storytellers. In the winter of 1954, in a construction camp for a hydroelectric dam in the remote Tasmanian highlands, when Sonja Buloh was three years old and her migrant Slovenian father was drunk, her mother Maria walked off into a blizzard, never to return. Thirty-five years later, Sonja returns to Tasmania and a father haunted by memories of the European war and other, more recent horrors. As the shadows of the past begin to intrude ever more forcefully into the present, Sonja’s empty life and her father’s living death are to change forever. The Sound of One Hand Clapping is about the barbarism of an old world left behind, about the harshness of a new country, and the destiny of those in a land beyond hope who seek to redeem themselves through love.

  • Pdf File: poetry-and-the-language-of-oppression.pdf

Book Short Summary:

A first-hand account of the creative process that engages with the language of oppression and with politics in our time. How does the poet become attuned to the language of the world's upheaval? How does one talk insightfully about suffering, without creating more of it? What is freedom in language and how does the poet who has endured political oppression write himself or herself free? What is literary testimony? Poetry and the Language of Oppression is a consideration of the creative process that rests on the conviction that poetry is of help in moments of public duress, providing an illumination of life and a healing language. Oppression, repression, expression, as well as their tools (prison, surveillance, gestures in language) have been with us in various forms throughout history, and this volume represents a particular aspect of these conditions of our humanity as they play out in our time, providing another instance of the communion, and sometimes confrontation, with the language that makes us human.

Book Short Summary:

A harrowing account of the Armenian Genocide documented through the stories of those who managed to survive and descendants who refuse to forget The grandchild of Armenians who escaped widespread massacres during the Ottoman Empire a century ago, Varujan Vosganian grew up in Romania hearing firsthand accounts of those who had witnessed horrific killings, burned villages, and massive deportations. In this moving chronicle of the Armenian people’s almost unimaginable tragedy, the author transforms true events into a work of fiction firmly grounded in survivor testimonies and historical documentation. Across Syrian desert refugee camps, Russian tundra, and Romanian villages, the book chronicles individual lives destroyed by ideological and authoritarian oppression. But this novel tells an even wider human story. Evocative of all the great sufferings that afflicted the twentieth century—world wars, concentration camps, common graves, statelessness, and others—this book belongs to all peoples whose voices have been lost. Hailed for its documentary value and sensitive authenticity, Vosganian’s work has become an international phenomenon.

Book Short Summary:

Surprisingly little known, the Polish-Soviet War of 1919-20 was to change the course of twentieth-century history. In White Eagle, Red Star, Norman Davies gives a full account of the War, with its dramatic climax in August 1920 when the Red Army - sure of victory and pledged to carry the Revolution across Europe to 'water our horses on the Rhine' - was crushed by a devastating Polish attack. Since known as the 'miracle on the Vistula', it remains one of the most decisive battles of the Western world. Drawing on both Polish and Russian sources, Norman Davies illustrates the narrative with documentary material which hitherto has not been readily available and shows how the War was far more an 'episode' in East European affairs, but largely determined the course of European history for the next twenty years or more.

On a cold bright day, fifteen year old Adriana Dunea wakes up to find that her world has transformed overnight. Her parents irritate her, school is a bore and her body is changing in ways she does not understand. As the seasons turn, she grows into a beautiful young woman, forges new friendships and falls in and out of love. Yet her days spent dreaming of romance and listening to the latest gramophone records in her provincial town swiftly come to an end when the sudden opportunity arises to move to Bucharest. Seduced by the charms of the ‘Little Paris of the East’, a chance encounter with the hot-headed composer Cello Viorin tests her attachment to her longstanding sweetheart, Gelu. In this witty, lyrical coming-of-age novel, Mihail Sebastian sensitively charts his heroine’s journey of self-awakening as she discovers the limits of her freedom and strives to shape her identity as a woman.

Book Short Summary:

From Paul Beatty, the author of the Man Booker Prize winner The Sellout, comes Tuff, a novel as fast-paced and hard-edged as the Harlem streets it portrays. Age nineteen and weighing in at 320 pounds, Winston “Tuffy” Foshay is an East Harlem denizen who breaks jaws and shoots dogs and dreams of earning millions from his idea for Cap’n Crunch: The Movie, starring Danny DeVito. His best friend is a disabled Muslim who wants to rob banks, his guiding light is an ex-hippie Asian woman who worked for Malcolm X, and he married his wife, Yolanda, over the phone from jail. He’s funny and fierce, frustrated and feared. And when Tuff decides to run for City Council, this dazzling novel goes from astoundingly funny to acerbically sublime. By turns profound and irreverent, and populated with a hilarious supporting cast, Paul Beatty's Tuff is satire at its razor-sharp best. “An extravagant, satirical cri de couer...Beatty’s blunt, impious, streetwise eloquence has a kind of transfixing power.” —The New York Times Book Review “Masterfully conceived and highly entertaining...Richly textured and unforgettable.”—The Boston Globe

Book Short Summary:

No matter what you look like, you’re a person like me. I love you with all my heart and I am with you. Love has never left me alone, and you have the same love, because, in fact, you are Love. You are divine, and the fact that you are here now is proof that you deserve a wonderful life, full of love, peace, abundance, and harmony. The light within me is the light within you and within everything that is, because we are all One. This motivational reading presents, in short, the emotional story of a beautiful soul who finds light in the middle of the darkness of its own journey through life. Finding the path of her destiny, Alma lives her own mission and returns the love she receives, guiding people to heal their lives, to acknowledge the power they have, to look inside them and to learn to live in harmony with it. The Light within Me shows an extremely simple way in which every person can connect primarily with themself, but also with the people around, by consciously living each moment and understanding the power of intention.
