  • A Girl Made of Dust

    Karton Kapak
    A Girl Made of Dust is a sophisticated exploration of one family’s private battle to survive in the midst of civil war.In her peaceful town outside Beirut, Ruba is slowly awakening to the shifting contours within her household: hardly speaking and refusing to work, her father has inexplicably withdrawn from his family; her once-youthful mother looks so sad that Ruba imagines her heart must have withered like a fig in the heat; and Ruba’s older brother has begun to secretly meet with older boys who carry guns. When Ruba decides that to salvage her family she must first save her father, she uncovers a long-buried secret that will send her on a journey away from the safety of childhood and into a brutal reality where men kill in the name of faith and race, past wrongs remain unforgiven, and where nothing less than courageous acts of sacrifice and unity can offer survival.A Girl Made of Dust is a coming-of-age story sparked, but not consumed, by violence and loss. This strikingly assured debut captures both a country and a childhood plagued by a conflict that even at its darkest and most threatening, carries the promise of healing and retribution.

    Dear Husband,: Stories

    Sert Kapak
    “[Oates] has once again held a haunting mirror up to America, revealing who we are.”—Boston Globe The inimitable Joyce Carol Oates returns with Dear Husband—a gripping and moving story collection that powerfully re-imagines the meaning of family in America, often through violent means. Oates, a former recipient of the PEN/Malamud Award for Excellence in Short Fiction—as well as the National Book Award, Prix Femina, and numerous other literary honors—dazzles and disturbs with an outstanding compilation the Washington Post calls, “Savage, poetic and ruthless...among the best things she’s ever done.” Dear Husband is another triumph for the author of The Gravedigger’s Daughter, We Were the Mulvaneys, and Blonde.

    Karton Kapak
    “Exquisitely woven.”—Leila AboulelaTimely and lyrical, The Cry of the Dove is the story of one young woman and an evocative portrait of forbidden love and violated honor in a culture whose reverberations are felt profoundly in our world today. Salma has committed a crime punishable by death in her Bedouin tribe of Hima, Levant: she had sex out of wedlock and became pregnant. Despite the insult it would commit against her people, Salma has the child and suddenly finds herself a fugitive on the run from those seeking to restore their honor. Salma is rushed into protective custody where her newborn is ripped from her arms, and where she sits alone for years before being ushered to safety in England. Away from her Bedouin village, Salma is an asylum-seeker trying to melt into the crowd, under pressure to reassess her way of life. She learns English customs from her landlady and befriends a Pakistani girl who is also on the run, with whose help Salma finally forges a new identity.

  • The World Beneath

    The World Beneath

    Karton Kapak
    The first novel from acclaimed author Cate Kennedy is a compassionate and unswerving portrait of a broken family whose members go to extraordinary lengths to reclaim their lives and relationships from the mistakes of the past.Fifteen years after their break-up, Rich and Sandy have both settled into the unfulfilling compromises of middle age: he’s a late-night infomercial editor with photojournalism aspirations; she makes hippie jewelry for a local market and struggles to maintain a New Age lifestyle that fails to provide the answers she seeks. To distract themselves from their inadequacies, Rich and Sandy cling to the shining moment of their youth, when they met as environmental activists as part of a world-famous blockade to save Tasmania’s Franklin River.Their daughter, Sophie, has always remained skeptical of this ecological fairytale, but when Rich invites her on a backpacking trip through Tasmania for her fifteenth birthday, Sophie sees it as a way to bond with a father she’s never known. As they progress further into the wilderness, the spell of Rich’s worldly charm soon gives way to suspicion and fear as his overconfidence sets off a chain of events that no one could have predicted.

  • Yesterday's Weather

    Yesterday's Weather

    Karton Kapak
    Man Booker winner Anne Enright’s story collection Yesterday’s Weather is a series of moving glimpses into the lives of ordinary men and women struggling with the bonds of love, family, and community in an increasingly disconnected world. It exhibits the arresting images and subversive wit that mark Enright as one of the most thrillingly gifted writers of our time.Yesterday’s Weather shows us a rapidly changing Ireland, a land of family and tradition, but also, increasingly, of organic radicchio, cruise-ship vacations, and casual betrayals. An artisan farmer seethes at the patronage of a former Catholic-school classmate, now a successful restaurateur; a bride cuckolds her rich husband with an old college friend—a madman who refuses his pills, disappears for weeks on end, and plays the piano like a dream. Still more startling than loss or deception are the ways in which people respond: a wife raging at her husband’s infidelity must weigh the real stakes after his affair takes a tragic turn; confronted with a similar situation, a woman decides to cheat with, rather than against, her man. Sharp, tender, never predictable, their sum is a vibrant tapestry of people struggling to find contentment with one another—and with themselves.

  • Françoise Sagan

    Françoise Sagan

    Sert Kapak
    Françoise Sagan, c'est d'abord un livre, Bonjour tristesse, qu'elle écrit à 18 ans, en six semaines. Ce petit chef d'oeuvre marque le début de la gloire et la naissance d'un mythe. Dès 1954, le "charmant petit monstre" devient une référence pour la jeunesse. Dans cette société des Trente Glorieuses où souffle un vent de liberté, elle incarne la modernité. Elle entre dans tous les foyers grâce à son oeuvre, mais aussi et surtout par le biais des magazines. A travers Françoise Sagan, c'est une histoire de la seconde moitié du XXe siècle qui se raconte, de Saint-Germain-des-Prés à Saint-Tropez, du manifeste des 343 salopes à l'affaire Elf, de la guerre d'Algérie à Mai 68. Richement illustré, ce livre dévoile les multiples facettes d'une icône qui a tenté de retrouver, tout au long de sa vie, la liberté chérie de l'enfance.

  • Exotic Women: Literary Heroines and Cultural Strategies in Ancient Regime France (New Cultural Studies)

    Exotic Women: Literary Heroines and Cultural Strategies in Ancient Regime France (New Cultural Studies)

    Karton Kapak
    Julia V. Douthwaite describes the interrelated representations of cultural and sexual difference in key French works of the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The heroines of this book are foreign women, brought to France through no will of their own, and forced into the margins of a new society. The author contends that their experience resonates with larger cultural beliefs about exotic and primitive peoples in ancien régime France and illuminates some of the blind spots in Enlightenment thought.
