Описание: An anthology of literary love stories—in a beautiful hardcover Pocket Classics edition—perfect for Valentine’s Day.Here are nineteen stories from a rich array of writers, and here is every kind of romantic entanglement: from the raw, erotic passion of D. H. Lawrence and Colette to the wickedly cynical comedy of Dorothy Parker and Roald Dahl, from the yearning of unrequited romantic illusions in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “Winter Dreams” to the agonizing madness of jealousy in Vladimir Nabokov’s “That in Aleppo Once...” The objects of passion in these stories range from a glamorous silent-movie starlet in Elizabeth Bowen’s haunting “Dead Mabelle” and a faithful ghost in Yasunari Kawabata's "Immortality" to a heart surgeon in Margaret Atwood’s “Bluebeard’s Egg” who spends his days penetrating the mysteries of the human heart but who seems oddly emotionally opaque himself. Jhumpa Lahiri plumbs the despair of a husband and wife sundered by tragedy while Lorrie Moore movingly portrays a couple brought together by it. Katherine Mansfield, Tobias Wolff, and William Trevor explore the intricacies of long-term relationships, while Guy de Maupassant, Italo Calvino, and T. C. Boyle portray the elemental force of love in extremely different ways.As alluring, moving, and intoxicating as its timeless theme, this collection makes an enticing gift for lovers at any stage of life.

Описание: (Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) Now joining Everyman's Library--the most extensive and distinguished collectible library of the world's greatest works--is an appealing new collection in a small Pocket Classics format, perfect for gift giving and reading pleasure. Christmas Stories is a treasury of short fiction by great writers of the past two centuries--from Dickens and Tolstoy to John Updike and Alice Munro. As a literary subject, Christmas has inspired everything from intimate domestic dramas to fanciful flights of the imagination, and the full range of its expression is represented in this wonderfully engaging anthology. Goblins frolic in the graveyard of an early Dickens tale and a love-struck ghost disrupts a country estate in Elizabeth Bowen's "Green Holly." The plight of the less fortunate haunts Chekhov's "Vanka" and Willa Cather's "The Burglar's Christmas" but takes a boisterously comic turn in Damon Runyon's "Dancing Dan's Christmas" and in John Cheever's "Christmas Is a Sad Season for the Poor." From Vladimir Nabokov's intensely moving story of a father's grief in "Christmas" to Truman Capote's hilarious yet heartbreaking "A Christmas Memory," from Grace Paley's Jewish girl starring in the Christmas pageant in "The Loudest Voice" to the dysfunctional family ski holiday in Richard Ford's "Cr che"--each of the stories gathered here is imbued with Christmas spirit (of one kind or another), and all are richly and indelibly entertaining.

Описание: Two centuries of literary homages to the fascinating feline: stories by writers of every stripe--from P.G. Wodehouse to Doris Lessing, from Damon Runyon to Steven Millhauser. The essential unknowableness of cats has inspired many flights of fancy: Italo Calvino's secret city of cats in "The Garden of Stubborn Cats," the disappearing feline in Ursula K. Le Guin's mind-twisting "Schr dinger's Cat," the cartoon rodent and his cartoon nemesis in Steven Millhauser's "Cat 'n' Mouse." Cats flaunt their superiority in Angela Carter's bawdy retelling of "Puss-in-Boots" and in Stephen Vincent Ben t's "The King of the Cats," in which two impossibly suave foreigners are revealed as even more exotic than they pretend to be. In "The Islands" by Alice Adams and "I See You, Bianca" by Maeve Brennan we see how much cats can mean to their humans. And the inimitable Saki lets us hear what cats really think of us in "Tobermory," his tale of a tactless talking animal. In these and other stories, this delightful book offers cat lovers a many- faceted tribute to the beguilingly mysterious objects of their affection.

Описание: Stories of Art and Artists gathers two centuries of classic stories from around the world. From Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Artist of the Beautiful" and Albert Camus's "The Artist at Work" to Bernard Malamud's "Rembrandt's Hat" and Aimee Bender's "The Color Master," the tales collected here range from haunting fables about the power of art to vivid portraits of those who create. Writers have long been fascinated by the idea of artistic genius, the relationship between portraits and their subjects, the inspirational role of muses, and the effects on artists of ambition, failure, and success. Art forms featured in these pages include sculpture, pottery, architecture, miniatures, landscapes, portraits, and abstract painting, illumined in brilliant stories by such great writers as Honor de Balzac, Hermann Hesse, Franz Kafka, Marguerite Yourcenar, John Berger, William Boyd, Doris Lessing, Valerie Martin, Julian Barnes, Orhan Pamuk, and A. S. Byatt. Their dazzling literary evocations of the visual arts--using one art form to reflect on another--make Stories of Art and Artists an irresistible gift for lovers of art of all kinds.

Описание: "Stories of Fatherhood "gathers more than a century of classic short stories about having, becoming, loving, and losing fathers. Frank O'Connor's hilarious tale of a tiny boy's war against his paternal rival in "My Oedipus Complex" sits beside Ann Packer's touching portrait of a man preparing for the wonder and terror of his first child's birth. At the other end of the lifespan, John Updike's "My Father's Tears," Jim Shepard's "The Mortality of Parents," and William Maxwell's "The man who lost his father" bring us face to face with a loss that is like no other. In between, we encounter a full range of emotions connecting men and their offspring: tenderness and devotion, anxiety and incomprehension, admiration and regret. Powerful patriarchs cast a long shadow in Katherine Mansfield's "The Daughters of the Late Colonel" and D. H. Lawrence's "The Christening," while Edith Wharton's "His Father's Son" sheds a more ironic light on the paternal legacy. E. L. Doctorow's young protagonist, forced to write letters impersonating his dead father, arrives at a deeper understanding of him, while in Helen Simpson's "Sorry?" an old man's hearing aid seems to reveal what his children secretly think about him. Paternal bonds are forged outside biology, too: Graham Swift portrays a man wistfully seeking a substitute son, while Guy de Maupassant's forlorn waif triumphantly acquires an ideal father. In these twenty stories, ""an array of great writers--ranging from Kafka, Joyce, and Nabokov to Raymond Carver, Harold Brodkey, and Andre Dubus--offers a wonderfully varied assortment of fictional takes on paternity.
