Tenth of December by George Saunders( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in Polish and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Powracający z wojny, przepełniony agresją, frustracją i traumą żołnierz. Więzień, który bierze udział w biochemicznych eksperymentach, testujących granice jego człowieczeństwa. Ojciec rodziny piszący pamiętnik z myślą o trójce swoich dzieci. Co mają ze sobą wspólnego bohaterowie opowiadań George’a Saundersa? To w gruncie rzeczy zupełnie zwyczajni ludzie, którzy w wyścigu po sukces i lepsze życie znajdują się zazwyczaj na ostatnich miejscach. Przytłoczeni społeczną presją i oczekiwaniami, często dokonują złych wyborów. Saunders w trzecim zbiorze swoich opowiadań, wydanych w 2013 roku po kilkuletniej przerwie, nie traci zmysłu krytycznego obserwatora życia współczesnych Amerykanów. Jego opowiadania, choć bezlitośnie punktują konsumpcjonizm, jałowość masowej kultury, postępującą obojętność w międzyludzkich relacjach, są mimo wszystko pełne wiary w ludzi i ich dobre intencje. Nie można też oprzeć się wrażeniu, że swoich bohaterów Saunders traktuje z dużą dozą wyrozumiałości i czułości. Ironiczne, miejscami przerażające, miejscami absurdalne, bardzo przenikliwe – zbiór Dziesiąty grudnia tylko potwierdza zasłużoną sławę George’a Saundersa jako jednego z najlepszych autorów opowiadań, nie bez powodu porównywanego do takich twórców jak Kurt Vonnegut czy Mark Twain."--

The bastard of Istanbul by Elif Shafak( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in Polish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a novel overflows with a kitchen sink's worth of zany characters, women are front and center: Asya Kazanci, an angst-ridden 19-year-old Istanbulite is the bastard of the title; her beautiful, rebellious mother, Zeliha (who intended to have an abortion), has raised Asya among three generations of complicated and colorful female relations (including religious clairvoyant Auntie Banu and bar-brawl widow, Auntie Cevriye). The Kazanci men either die young or take a permanent hike like Mustafa, Zeliha's beloved brother who immigrated to America years ago. Mustafa's Armenian-American stepdaughter, Armanoush, who grew up on her family's stories of the 1915 genocide, shows up in Istanbul looking for her roots and for vindication from her new Turkish family. The Kazanci women lament Armanoush's family's suffering, but have no sense of Turkish responsibility for it; Asya's boho cohorts insist there was no genocide at all. As the debate escalates, Mustafa arrives in Istanbul, and a long-hidden secret connecting the histories of the two families is revealed
