Description:
This is the story of Dana Hilliot's first voyage, as mess-boy on the freighter Oedipus Tyrannus bound for Bombay and Singapore; of this struggle to win the approval of his shipmates; trying to match their example in the bars and bordellos of the Chinese ports while at the same time remaining faithful to his first love, Janet, back home in England. Alternating between Dana's own narrative and the ribald humour and colourful language of the seamen's conversation, the novel depicts a boy's initiation into the company of men.

Description:
A young woman in love with a man torn between his love for her and his incorrigible womanizing one of his mistresses and her humbly faithful lover - these are the two complies whose story is told in this masterful novel. In a world in which lives are shaped by irrevocable choices and by fortuitous events, a world in which everything occurs but once, existence seems to lose its substance, its weight. Hence, we feel 'the unbearable lightness of being' not only as the consequence of out private actions, but also in the public sphere, and the two inevitable intertwine.

Description:
In 1543, the Polish astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus lay on his deathbed, reportedly holding his just-published masterpiece, The Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres, in his hands. Placing the sun at the center of the universe, Copernicus launched modern science, leading to a completely new understanding of the universe, and humanity's place within it.But what did Copernicus really believe? Some argue that he anticipated the vast secularizing impact his ideas would have on history. Others contend that Copernicus was a man of his time and, on the whole, accepted its worldview. William T. Vollmann navigates this territory with the energetic prose and powerful intelligence for which he is known, providing a fresh and enlightening explication of Copernicus, his book, and his time, and the momentous clash between them.

This book is more than a how-to for writers and aspiring writers, more than a memoir of teaching, it is a deeply felt and impassioned plea for the necessity of writing in our lives. The author wisely reminds us, 'Writing is the cure for the disease of living. Doing it may sometimes feel like an escape from the world, but at its best moments it is an act of rescue.'

Full of drugs and booze and self-hate, he has washed up in Sydney, where he has a walk-up in Kings Cross, a bad case of sunstroke, and an even worse reputation at the local bars. But now his former boss from the Auckland City Police Department has tracked him down and wants Osborne back on the job. Jack Fitzgerald, a former colleague and Osborne's only real friend on the force, has committed suicide in the middle of an important investigation. And despite his current state, Osborne, once a tenacious detective, is the only one qualified to take over the investigation. Osborne has no interest in playing policeman anymore but returns to Auckland at the behest of his captain for one reason and one reason only:he's sure that Fitzgerald couldn't have killed himself and he's determined to find his murderers.290 pages.

Description:
Utz collects Meissen porcelain with a passion. His collection, which he has protected and enlarged through both WWII and Czechoslovakia's years of Stalinism, numbers more than 1000 pieces, all crammed into his two-room Prague flat. Upon his death, the porcelain becomes the property of the state. Utz is allowed to leave the country each year, and although he has considered defection, he always returns. He cannot take his precious collection with him, but he cannot leave it either. And so Utz is as much owned by his porcelain as it is owned by him as much a prisoner of the collection as of the Communist state.
