FROM THE PUBLISHER - The master of the new noir, Dennis Lehane brilliantly interweaves beauty and violence, integrity and evil in this thrilling, powerfully resonant novel. A beautiful, grief-stricken woman has vanished without a trace. So has the detective hired to find her. And a lot of money. Enter saavy, tough-nosed private investigators Patrick Kenzie and Angela Gennaro. Rooted in the no-nonsense streets of Boston’s blue-collar Dorchester, they’ve seen it all -- and survived. But this case leads them into unexpected territory where nothing is sacred -- a land of lies and corruption where trusting anyone could get them killed. where taking any step could be their last. inventory #24167 ISBN: 0688143814.

New York. 1993. Harper Collins. 1st Printing. Very Good in Dustjacket. 006016767x. 305 pages. hardcover. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Hillerman’s long-awaited new novel shows how amply he deserves such high praise, as it reunites Navajo Tribal Policemen Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee in an effort to unravel a treacherous web of tribal politics and murder. Yesterday a teacher was killed at a mission school on the Navajo Reservation, but today in the Tano Indian pueblo murder seems inconceivable as a tribal ceremony unfolds. The sacred kachinas have danced into the ancient plaza, and the koshare in their grotesque disguises have tumbled down from the rooftops to ape the foolishness of humankind. At first, the crowd welcomes this troupe of sacred clowns with laughter. But something in one clown’s red wagon hushes the crowd. And then murder strikes at Tano. To Officer Chee and Lieutenant Leaphorn, now working as an uneasy team, the solution to the killing at the mission school seems straightforward, and the… Read more

Jacket design by Lidia Ferrara. Jacket painting, Couple with Their Heads Full of Clouds, by Salvador Dali, (c) A.D.A.G.P., Paris, 1977. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Three interlinked novellas of sinister brilliance and wit. With a mercilessly delighted ear for the telltale nuances of social repartee, with a connoisseur’s eye for the Pose and the Attitude, Donoso launches his assault on the would-be-cosmopolitan tastemakers of the not-so-International Set in their Mediterranean playgrounds. Suddenly we are in the thick of war. between a cover girl-and her friends-rebelling against the men who ‘created’ them and manipulate them, learning to use the female arsenal of cosmetics, particularly vanishing cream, to devastating effect (so startlingly efficacious when it comes to removing a man’s not-so-spare parts) between a… Read more

Mohammed Ahmed, a Moroccan girl raised as a boy in order to circumvent Islamic inheritance laws regarding female children, remains deeply conflicted about her identity. In a narrative that shifts in and out of reality moving between a mysterious present and a painful past, Ben Jelloun relates the events of Ahmed's adult life. Now calling herself Zahra, she renounces her role as only son and heir after her father's death and journeys through a dreamlike Moroccan landscape.

Cover image: I [] CU, Cooper Unio, New York, April 2011, courtesy of Natasa Bojic. Cover design by Joel W. Coggins. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Living in one of the world's most volatile regions, the people of the Balkans have witnessed unrelenting political, economic, and social upheaval. In response, many have looked to building communities, both psychologically and materially, as a means of survival in the wake of crumbling governments and states. The foundational structures of these communities often center on the concept of individual sacrifice for the good of the whole. Many communities, however, are hijacked by restrictive ideologies, turning them into a model of intolerance and exclusion. In The Sacrificed Body, Tatjana Aleksic examines the widespread use of the sacrificial metaphor in cultural texts and its importance to… Read more

Berkeley. 2003. University Of California Press. Reprinted Paperback Edition. Very Good in Wrappers. 0520242238. 366 pages. paperback. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Food safety is a matter of intense public concern, and for good reason. Millions of annual cases of food ‘poisonings’ raise alarm not only about the food served in restaurants and fast-food outlets but also about foods bought in supermarkets. The introduction of genetically modified foods–immediately dubbed ‘Frankenfoods’–only adds to the general sense of unease. Finally, the events of September 11, 2001, heightened fears by exposing the vulnerability of food and water supplies to attacks by bioterrorists. How concerned should we be about such problems? Who is responsible for preventing them? Who benefits from ignoring them? Who decides? Marion Nestle, author of the critically acclaimed Food Politics, argues that ensuring safe food involves more than washing hands or cooking food to higher temperatures. It involves… Read more

Translated from the German by Leila Vennewitz. 317 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Paul Bacon. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Heinrich Böll’s subject here is terrorism-and the terrorized. Trapped at the heart of it all, one family. The old man, Fritz Tolm-publisher of a once-liberal newspaper that has grown away from him into a gigantic cannibalizing consortium-has already seen his life and that of his wife, Kãthe, become a slow suffocation: they are such obvious targets for violent political and social revenge. Now, suddenly and without his cooperation, he is elected head of ‘The Association’ (of every major corporation: industrial, financial, energy, media)-the most conspicuous and perhaps truly powerful position in the country. He and she must be protected at all costs-but who and what and where exactly is the threat? Fritz and Kãthe… Read more

Baltimore. 1988. Johns Hopkins University Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good in Dustjacket. 0801836026. 130 pages. hardcover. Jacket illustration & design by Chris L. Smith. FROM THE PUBLISHER - In his second collection, Martone focuses on our lack of safety, equating it with our loss of innocence. He accents the fragility of our arrangements, the randomness of disaster, the vulnerability of anyone crossing the road. Thus in ‘King of Safety the narrator, whose father worked for the phone company, recalls in childhood being chosen King of Safety to ride the company’s float in their annual parade. Grown and gone from home, the young man calls his parents when he travels from ‘the observation decks of tall buildings.’ The story is a subtle meditation on what keeps you safe: perhaps memory, the memory of childhood. Martone’s prose is calm and untheatrical, but he writes as if his characters, all of us, were really perfoming on a high wire without a safety net beneath. -… Read more

Translated from the Icelandic by George Johnston. Notes & An Essays On The Saga Of Gisli by Peter Foote. 146 pages. hardcover. FROM THE PUBLISHER - The Saga of Gisli was written early in the thirteenth century. It offers an imaginative reconstruction of the story of a man and his family who came to Iceland from Norway about A.D. 950. Soon after 960 Gisli, the central figure, was outlawed for killing his brother-in-law, and then, for thirteen years or more, he lived in hiding in remote parts of the northwest of Iceland until he was finally caught and killed by his enemies. Around this historical core the author has spun a web of conflicting passions - love, hate and jealousy between man and wife, brother and sister, brother-in-law - intricate emotional bonds which are here seen ironically patterned against a background of inevitable fate.… Read more

New York. 2008. Penguin Books. 1st Penguin Classic Paperback Edition. Very Good in Wrappers. 9780140447750. Translated from the Icelandic by Keneva Kunz. 223 pages. paperback. Cover - Detail from Oseberg wood carving depicting woman appearing to restrain one man from striking another. Norwegian, 9th century. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Gudrun is headstrong, proud and the most beautiful woman in Iceland. The tragic story of how she comes to betray and destroy the only man she has ever truly loved lies at the heart of this forceful family saga, which traces the passions and blood feuds of three generations of strong women, wise leaders and hotheaded warriors. Written around 1245 but telling of earlier centuries, when magic rites and sorcery clashed with the spread of Christianity throughout a rapidly changing Viking world, this tale of revenge slayings and sacrifice, desire and regret, is one of the best-loved works of Icelandic literature. The accompanying sequel tells of Bolli Bollason, Gudrun’s adored… Read more

Princeton/New York. 1949. Princeton University Press for the American-Scandinavian Foundation. 1st American Edition. Very Good. No Dustjacket. Translated from the Old Icelandic & With An Introduction & Notes by Lee Hollander. 218 pages. hardcover. FROM THE PUBLISHER - These two sagas from 13th century Iceland are here linked together as an interesting contrast in biographic sagas. One is a saga of love, the other of revenge; both are rich in the lore and practice of olden times, yet strangely modern in their insights and in their concern with character study. KORMAK'S SAGA, a love tale amazingly fiery for an age notably clear-eyed and unsentimental, illustrates the truth of the Old Norse adage that a man's character is his fate; it is Kormak's problematic character which is the core and substance of this curious saga. This is indeed a problem tale for the psychologists, of a passionate lifetime love repeatedly frustrated by what we call superstition. THE SAGA OF THE SWORN… Read more

Farkas Jr. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Miroslav Holub, who has been called the most important poet working in Europe today, is chief research immunologist at the Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine in Prague. He writes about everyday life and integrates scientific thought into his poetry, ‘so that,’ as he has noted, ‘logical, analytical thinking about the human condition, and not abstract idealism, will result.’ Ewald Osers has said in London Magazine that ‘Holub brings to poetry a way of thinking previously associated only with scientific thought and thus tries to break down the wall between C.P. Snow’s ‘two cultures.’ Miroslav Holub has published thirteen books of poetry and four books of prose and essays. While… Read more

New York. 1992. Viking Press. Advance Uncorrected Proofs. Very Good in Wrappers. 0670835218. 535 pages. paperback. FROM THE PUBLISHER - After writing two books in the early 1960s, both now established as American classics, Ken Kesey abandoned the novel in its established form. Over the past twenty-five years he has written many shorter pieces, but only now, with Sailor Song, brings his considerable powers once again to bear on a full-scale undertaking, giving us a unique and powerful novel about America. Set in the near future, the story takes us to the Alaskan village of Kuinak, a rundown fishing community of Deaps (Descendants of Early Aboriginal Peoples) and Lower Forty-eight refugees perched on the Western Edge of history. It’s a scene rich with characters, like Alice the Angry Aleut, Ike Sallas (known as ‘the Bakatcha Bandit’ during the environmental wars of the nineties), the town’s indispensable ‘scoot’ runner Billy the Squid, and the Loyal Order of Underdogs, who… Read more

FROM THE PUBLISHER - With considerable, if uneven, success, the four novellas in this volume trace the intersecting paths of characters met in Gifford’s WILD AT HEART. In the best and longest, ‘59 and Raining: The Story of Perdita Durango,’ Gifford adapts real-life incidents to his fictional purpose as his ‘weird and dangerous’ heroine with ‘8-ball black eyes’ and a Caribbean-born, drug-dealing santeria priest whose rituals require human sacrifice team up to kidnap two American teenagers in Mexico and take them along on a crime spree in Texas and California. This story leads back to Louisiana and Lula’s mother, Marietta Fortune, who announces, ‘There’s a Devil and he don’t never quit,’ the lietmotif of these violence-ridden tales.

New York. 1924. Brentano's. 1st American Edition. Date Penned in Front, Otherwise Good in Green Cloth. No Dustjacket. 163 pages. hardcover. FROM THE PUBLISHER - With Saint Joan, Shaw reached the height of his fame as a dramatist. In this magnificent play he distilled many of the ideas he had been trying to express in earlier works on the subjects of politics, religion and creative evolution. Fascinated by the story of Joan of Arc, but unhappy with the way she had traditionally been depicted, Shaw wanted to remove ‘the whitewash which disfigures her beyond recognition’. He presents a realistic Joan: proud, intolerant, naive, foolhardy, always brave - a rebel who challenged the conventions and values of her day. As Imogen Stubbs writes, ‘All Joans are relevant but some Joans are more relevant than others - I think Shaw’s Saint Joan is the right one to be received by the twenty-first century’. inventory #6932
