Bosnian chronicle by Ivo Andrić( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Andric's sweeping novel The Days of the Consuls spans the seven years 1807-1814, when French and Austrian consuls served alongside the Turkish Viziers in the remote Bosnian town of Travnik, distant outpost of the Ottoman Empire. Divided as the community is, Muslims, Cahtolic and Orthodox Christians, Jews and Gypsies all unite in a common contempt for their visitors. Isolated in a claustrophobic atmosphere of suspicion and mutual distrust, the consuls and Viziers vie with each other, following the fluctuations of their respective foreign policies. When international politics permit however, they console each other as best they can in this harsh and hostile land. Andric uses his native Bosnia as a microcosm of human society, stressing its potential for national, cultural and religious misunderstanding and conflict, and identifying the barriers of all kinds that hinder communication between individuals. Written against the, background of violence released in these mixed communities during the Second World War, the novel has poignant relevance

Shifu, you'll do anything for a laugh by Yan Mo( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"His passion for writing shaped by his own experience of almost unimaginable poverty as a child, Mo Yan uses his talent to expose the harsh abuses of an oppressive society. In these stories he writes of those who suffer, physically and spiritually, under its yoke: the newly unemployed factory worker who hits upon an ingenious financial opportunity; two former lovers revisiting their passion fleetingly before returning to their spouses; young couples willing to pay for a place to share their love in private; the abandoned baby brought home by a soldier to his unsympathetic wife; the impoverished child who must subsist on a diet of iron and steel; the young bride willing to go to any length to escape an odious, arranged marriage. Never didactic, Mo's fiction ranges from tragedy to wicked satire, rage to whimsy, magical fable to harsh realism, from impassioned pleas on behalf of struggling workers to paeans to romantic love."--The publisher

The invisibility cloak by Fei Ge( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The hero of The Invisibility Cloak lives in contemporary Beijing--where everyone is doing their best to hustle up the ladder of success while shouldering an ever-growing burden of consumer goods--and he's a loser. Well into his forties, he's divorced (and still doting on his ex), childless, and living with his sister (her husband wants him out) in an apartment at the edge of town with a crack in the wall the wind from the north blows through while he gets by, just, by making customized old-fashioned amplifiers for the occasional rich audio-obsessive. He has contempt for his clients and contempt for himself. The only things he really likes are Beethoven and vintage speakers. Then an old friend tips him off about a special job--a little risky but just don't ask too many questions--and can it really be that this hopeless loser wins? This provocative and seriously funny exercise in the social fantastic by the brilliantly original Ge Fei, one of China's finest living writers, is among the most original works of fiction to come out of China in recent years. It is sure to appeal to readers of Haruki Murakami and other fabulists of contemporary irreality"--
The canal bridge : a novel of Ireland, love, and the First World War by Thomas D Phelan( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In 1913, before there is a rumor of war in Europe, Matthias Wrenn and Con Hatchel, lifelong friends from Ballyrannel in the Irish midlands, decide to see the world at the expense of the king of England and join the British army. A year later, while en route to India, their troop ship is recalled and they soon find themselves in the European slaughterhouse that was World War I. As stretcher bearers, the two men witness all too closely the horrors of the battlefield and the trenches, the savagery, and the unconscionable waste of human life on fields made liquid by "the blood and guts of boy soldiers" at the Somme, Ypres, and Passchendaele. Meanwhile, back home in Ireland, Con's sister and Matthias's lover, Kitty Hatchel, yearns for their safe return and reminds them of their carefree childhood on the banks of the local canal, as well as their hopes for the future. Brilliantly and movingly narrated by a chorus of voices from the community - Matt, Con, Kitty, and others - The Canal Bridge tells the story of how the young men take Ballyrannel to war with them, and how the war comes back home when hostilities end in Europe. The Ireland the friends left in 1913 no longer exists, for the political landscape has been transformed by the Rising against the British in 1916. It is now a land riven with sectarian tensions and bloodshed from which there is no escape

"Over the course of his distinguished career as a foreign correspondent, which spans more than sixty years, Alistair Cooke has known, interviewed, or reported on literally hundreds of the most influential men and women of the twentieth century. Here he has collected his memories of more than a score of them: they include actors and generals, statesmen and eccentrics, a poet, a jazzman, an intensely scholarly woman and a casually funny one, an architect, a publisher, and several politicians - all of whom, in Cooke's view, have left the world a better or more interesting place."--Jacket

The cinema of cruelty : from Buñuel to Hitchcock by André Bazin( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An amazing collection of essays from the father of film criticism. Perhaps the single most important voice of cinema in the twentieth century, Andr Bazin profoundly influenced the development of the scholarship that we know now as film criticism. Bazin has acutely analyzed the cinematic values of our time, extending to his international audiences?the impact of art for the understanding and discrimination of his readers.? The depth and logic of his commentary has elevated film criticism to new heights. The reputation of Andr Bazin continues to grow as his writings are published and studied by filmmakers and filmgoers alike. Often referred to as the Edmund Wilson of film, Bazin was more than a critic.?He made me see certain aspects of my work that I was unaware of,? said Luis Buuel.?He was our conscience,? wrote Jean Renoir.?He was a logician in action,? echoed Franois Truffaut. In The Cinema of Cruelty, Franois Truffaut, one of France?s most celebrated and versatile filmmakers, has collected Bazin?s writings on six film?greats?: Erich von Stroheim, Carl Dreyer, Preston Sturges, Luis Buuel, Alfred Hitchcock, and Akira Kurosawa. The result is a major collection of film criticism. 2 black-and-white photographs
