There Goes the Neighborhood
Jade Adia - 2023-03-07
Рейтинг Goodreads
A group of friends from South L.A. are threatened by gentrification and decide to create a fake gang to scare off developers. However, things take a dark turn when a murder is attributed to the nonexistent gang. This hilarious and powerful novel explores the destructive power of gentrification and showcases the best intentions of young people in communities of color. Perfect for fans of Let Me Hear a Rhyme and On My Block, There Goes the Neighborhood is an uproarious novel about power, friendship, and the true meaning of a neighborhood.

Английский пациент book cover
Английский пациент
Michael Ondaatje - 2006-04-18 (впервые опубликовано в 1992)
Рейтинг Goodreads
От производителя "Английский пациент" - удивительная книга, удостоенная самых престижных премий мира; по этому роману Энтони Мингелла поставил фильм, получивший девять "Оскаров" (главные роли исполнили Ральф Файнс, Джульетт Бинош, Уиллем Дэфо). Прихотливые дорожки судьбы сводят на заброшенной итальянской вилле под занавес Второй мировой войны четырех человек: перевербованного разведкой благородного вора, разминирующего живописную Тоскану сапера-сикха, юную канадскую медсестру и ее подопечного - обгоревшего до неузнаваемости неизвестного. Он и рассказывает читателям завораживающую историю своей любви к замужней женщине, заброшенной судьбой в самое сердце пустыни Сахара. "Глубокий, искусный, берущий за душу роман". Тони Моррисон "Чувствуется рука настоящего мастера… выдающееся произведение современной прозы". Дон Делилло "Мингелла, верный своим традициям, снял яростно-красивый фильм... Первоисточник же Ондатже - прямо-таки чистая поэзия, с шорохом пустынь, скрипом половиц в старой вилле, цитатами из Геродота и Киплинга... И вся эта романтика происходит среди пышных итальянских руин, среди статуй с оторванными снарядами руками, среди оставленных немцами мин и неразорвавшихся бомб. Война медленно уходит на север, и к пациенту постепенно возвращается память: научная экспедиция в Африке, каирский любовный треугольник, поединок немецких и английских спецслужб в Ливийской пустыне... В общем, все, как в фильме, только гораздо лучше".

There are so many but The English Patient comes to mind first. The movie really...did something different. But that book...whew.      источник

This extraordinary memoir follows a bestselling author's journey towards self-discovery through candid letters addressed to friends, lovers, and family. Through the turmoil of relationships and transformative decisions, the author unveils the harrowing yet resolute truths of their own life. This book is as tender as it is brutal, and is animated by the same voracious intelligence that distinguishes their fiction. Electrifying and inspiring, Dear Senthuran is a revelatory account of storytelling, self, and survival.
