The Gormenghast Novels book cover
The Gormenghast Novels
Mervyn Peake - 1998-01-01 (впервые опубликовано в 1950)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Enter the magical world of Gormenghast - a place of bizarre creatures, doomed lords, and emergent heroes. The Gormenghast Novels are a fantasy classic, rivaled only by Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. The story centers on Titus Groan, the seventy-seventh Earl who stands to inherit the grand Gormenghast Castle and its kingdom, if only conniving Steerpike doesn't take control first. Full of lush, vivid detail, this world is brought to life with Peake's own illustrations. Featuring introductory essays by Anthony Burgess and Quentin Crisp, this book is a must-read for any fantasy fan.

Маленький, большой book cover
Маленький, большой
John Crowley - 2006-10-17 (впервые опубликовано в 1981)
Рейтинг Goodreads
«Маленький, большой» — это «поистине уникальный роман, в одиночку совершивший жанровую революцию» (У. Ле Гуин); это эпический бестселлер о любви и волшебстве, о свободе воли и предопределении, о роли личности в истории, плетущейся невидимым, но могущественным рассказчиком. Городской клерк Смоки Барнабл женится на Дейли Элис Дринкуотер, дочери детского писателя, и отправляется жить с ней в неотмеченную на картах усадьбу Эджвуд — загадочное сооружение, которое, чем глубже в него заходишь, тем больше становится и, кажется, вмещает в себя окружающие леса и поля, а то и весь мир. Герои «Маленького, большого», поколение за поколением, видят себя персонажами некой Повести, ощущают неочевидное соприсутствие сверхъестественных сил и неосознанно разыгрывают романтическую оперу по мотивам шекспировского «Сна в летнюю ночь», либретто которой мог бы написать Льюис Кэрролл.

Eat Your Mind book cover
Eat Your Mind
The Radical Life and Work of Kathy Acker
Jason McBride - 2022-11-29
Рейтинг Goodreads
Discover the life and work of one of the most original and controversial figures in 20th-century American literature in Eat Your Mind. This authorized biography of experimental novelist Kathy Acker is a feat of literary biography, drawing on exclusive interviews with hundreds of Acker’s intimates, journals, correspondence, and early drafts of her work. Acker wrote obsessively about the treachery of love, the limitations of language, and the possibility of revolution, collaging together texts stolen from other writers with her own diaries, sexual fantasies, and blunt political critiques. A must-read for those interested in important conversations about gender, sex, capitalism, and colonialism.
