Dekle na vlaku by Paula Hawkins( Book )

Glavne junakinje trilerja, ki trenutno podira bralne in prodajne rekorde po celem svetu, so tri ženske, Rachel, Megan in Anne, prvoosebne pripovedovalke svojih tragičnih življenjskih zgodb, ki jih vsaka razrešuje, kot pač zna - na napačen način. Najbolj ranljiva med tremi je Rachel, ločenka in alkoholičarka, ki ne zmore preboleti bivšega moža in izgona iz domače hiše, kjer sedaj kraljuje njena naslednica Anne. Rachel, ki se vsak dan vozi z vlakom v London in nazaj, skozi okno opazuje kraj, kjer je bila nekoč srečna pa tudi privlačen par, ki živi v bližini njenega nekdanjega doma. Njuno življenje se ji zdi popolno, dokler nekega dne Rachel opazi nekaj, kar ne sodi v to idilo. Rachel, ki sta ji alkohol in depresija že hudo načela spomin, pa vseeno zbere moč in se poda v raziskovanje izginotja občudovane ženske ter dogodka, ki ždi nekje v njeni podzavesti in je ključnega pomena za razrešitev policijske preiskave

The painted girls by Cathy Marie Buchanan( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in Slovenian and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Knjiga govori o življenju Marie van Goethem, baletke, ki je Edgarju Degasu služila kot model za svetovno znani kip Mala plesalka, stara štirinajst let. Marie van Goethem živi s svojo zapito materjo in dvema sestrama v revnem predelu Pariza. Borijo se z revščino in njihovo edino upanje je, da mlajši sestri postaneta baletki. Leta 1878 ju sprejmejo v baletno šolo pariške opere, kjer njuna starejša sestra že dela kot statistka. Tam Marie opazi Edgar Degas in jo najame kot model. Avtorica je v romanu upoštevala vsa dejstva, ki so znana o sestrah van Goethem, umetniško svobodo pa si je dovolila, ko je povezala starejšo sestro Antoinette z Emilom Abadiejem, ki naj bi bil vpleten v tri umore in o katerem je takrat veliko pisalo v časniku Le Figaro

Let the great world spin : a novel by Colum McCann( Book )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in Slovenian and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

V roman nas uvede vrvohodec, ki se avgusta 1974 v jutranji zarji sprehodi med dvojčkoma Svetovnega trgovinskega centra. Ljudje na Manhattnu nemo obstanejo in nejeverno strmijo v zrak. Zgodba o Philippu Petitu, ki poskakuje, poplesuje in teče po vrvi, razpeti med nebotičnikoma, služi kot metafora za premagovanje neprijetnih situacij, ki nas spremlja v tem romanesknem portretu New Yorka in njegovih prebivalcev v 70-ih.

Exterminate all the brutes by Sven Lindqvist( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in Slovenian and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Exterminate All the Brutes" is a unique study of Europe's dark history in Africa, written in the form of a travel diary and a historical examination of European racism over the past two centuries. Like Edward Said's Orientalism, Lindqvist's book examines the history of European racism, setting Conrad's Heart of Darkness in context and tracing the legacy of the writings of European explorers and theologians, politicians and historians, from the late eighteenth century on, in an effort to help us understand that most terrifying of Conrad's lines, "Exterminate all the brutes." Lindqvist argues that the harrowing racism that led to the Holocaust in the twentieth century had its roots in European colonial policy of the preceding century. This is an argument that was made in Hannah Arendt's celebrated Origins of Totalitarianism, but Lindqvist approaches it differently, with the insights of an artist and biographer

Masculinities by Raewyn Connell( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in Slovenian and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a new edition of R.W. Connell's text, which has become a classic work on the nature and construction of masculine identity. Connell argues that there is not one masculinity, but many different masculinities, each associated with different positions of power. In a world gender order that continues to privilege men over women, but also raises difficult issues for men and boys, his account is more pertinent than ever before." "This second edition of Connell's book will be essential reading for students taking courses on masculinities and gender studies, and will be of interest to students and scholars across the humanities and social sciences."--Jacket
