  • A Good Family (Library of Korean Literature)

    This collection of eight stories―cynical and sympathetic by turns―represents the author’s attempt to document and understand the conflicts, resentments, hatreds, and anxieties of contemporary family life. The title story depicts a mother’s busy day playing numerous roles―ashamed, fearless, or humble―depending on which member of her family she’s tending to. In “The Privacy of My Father,” a daughter tracks her father to Hong Kong in order to spy on what she thinks is an illicit affair. All in all, says Seo Hajin, family means deception–but these masks aren’t so easily removed.

    Nora is a cut-throat literary agent at the top of her game. Her whole life is books.

    Charlie is an editor with a gift for creating bestsellers. And he’s Nora’s work nemesis.

    Nora has been through enough break-ups to know she’s the one men date before finding their happy-ever-after. To prevent another dating dud, Nora’s sister has persuaded her to swap her city desk for a month’s holiday in Sunshine Falls.

    It’s a small town straight out of a romance novel, but instead of meeting sexy lumberjacks, handsome doctors or cute bartenders, Nora keeps bumping into…Charlie.

    She’s no heroine. He’s no hero. So can they take a page out of an entirely different book?

  • Circles of Stone: Weird Tales of Pagan Sites and Ancient Rites: 44 (British Library Tales of the Weird)

    In the wood the grey stone rose from the grass, and she cried out and ran back in panicked terror. ‘What a silly little girl,’ the nurse had said. ‘It’s only the… stone.’

    Standing stones, stone circles, tumps, barrows and ancient clearings still remain across the British Isles, and though their specific significance may be obscured by the passing of time, their strange allure and mysterious energy persist in our collective consciousness.

    Assembled here in tribute to these relics of a lost age are accounts of terrifying spirits haunting Stonehenge itself, stories of awful fates for those who impose modernity on the sacred sites and grim tales in which unwitting trespassers into the eternal rites of pagan worship find themselves part of an enduring legacy of blood. To represent the breadth of the sub-genre, authors include Arthur Machen, Algernon Blackwood and Rosalie Muspratt alongside lesser-known writers from the periodicals and journals of the British Library collections.

  • Crossing to Safety: Wallace Stegner (Penguin Modern Classics)

    02

    A novel of the friendships and woes of two couples, which tells the story of their lives in lyrical, evocative prose by one of the finest American writers of the late 20th century.

    When two young couples meet for the first time during the Great Depression, they quickly find they have much in common: Charity Lang and Sally Morgan are both pregnant, while their husbands Sid and Larry both have jobs in the English department at the University of Wisconsin. Immediately a lifelong friendship is born, which becomes increasingly complex as they share decades of love, loyalty, vulnerability and conflict. Written from the perspective of the aging Larry Morgan,Crossing to Safety is a beautiful and deeply moving exploration of the struggle of four people to come to terms with the trials and tragedies of everyday life.

    With an introduction by Jane Smiley.

    Wallace Stegner (1909-1993) was the author of, among other novels, Remembering Laughter, 1937; A Shooting Star, 1961; Angle of Repose (Pulitzer Prize), 1971; The Spectator Bird (National Book award), 1977; Recapitulation, 1979. Three of his short stories have won O.Henry prizes, and in 1980 he received the Robert Kirsch award from the Los Angeles Times for his lifetime literary achievements. His collected stories were published in 1990.

    Jane Smiley is the author of many novels and works of non-fiction, including, most recently, “Thirteen Ways of Looking at the Novel”, about the history and anatomy of the novel. Her most recent novel is “Good Faith”. She won the Pulitzer Prize in 1992 for “A Thousand Acres”, and was shortlisted for The Orange Prize in 2001 for Horse Heaven.

  • Damnable Tales: A Folk Horror Anthology

    08
    This richly illustrated anthology gathers together classic short stories from masters of supernatural fiction including M. R. James, Sheridan Le Fanu and Arthur Machen, alongside lesser-known voices in the field including Eleanor Scott and Margery Lawrence, and popular writers less bound to the horror genre, such as Thomas Hardy and E. F. Benson. These are damnable tales, selected and beautifully illustrated by Richard Wells. They stalk the moors at night, the deep forests, cornered fields and dusky churchyards, the narrow lanes and old ways of these ancient places, drawing upon the haunted landscapes of folk-horror – a now widely used term first applied to a series of British films from the late 1960s and 1970s: Witchfinder General (1968), Blood on Satan’s Claw (1971), and The Wicker Man (1973). But as this collection shows, writers of uncanny fiction were dabbling in the dark side of folklore long before. These twenty-two stories take the reader beyond the safety and familiarity of the town into the isolated and untamed wilderness. Unholy rites, witches’ curses, sinister village traditions and ancient horrors that lurk within the landscape all combine to remind us that the shiny modern, urban world might not have all the answers…

    02
    All of her life, Irish-American Moira Doherty has relished her mother’s descriptions of Ireland. When her mother dies unexpectedly in the summer of 1920, Moira decides to fulfill her mother’s wish that she become the teacher in Ballymann, her home village in Donegal, Ireland. After an arduous voyage, Moira arrives to a new home and a new job in an ancient country. Though a few locals offer a warm welcome, others are distanced by superstition and suspicion. Rumors about Moira’s mother are unspoken in her presence but threaten to derail everything she’s journeyed to Ballymann to do. Moira must rely on the kindness of a handful of friends–and the strength of Sean, an unsettlingly handsome thatcher who keeps popping up unannounced–as she seeks to navigate a life she’d never dreamed of . . . but perhaps was meant to live. Jennifer Deibel’s debut novel delights the senses, bringing to life the sights, sounds, smells, and language of a lush country and a colorful people. Historical romance fans will embrace her with open arms.

    Demon Copperhead is a once-in-a-generation novel that breaks and mends your heart in the way only the best fiction can.

    Demon’s story begins with his traumatic birth to a single mother in a single-wide trailer, looking ‘like a little blue prizefighter.’ For the life ahead of him he would need all of that fighting spirit, along with buckets of charm, a quick wit, and some unexpected talents, legal and otherwise.

    In the southern Appalachian Mountains of Virginia, poverty isn’t an idea, it’s as natural as the grass grows. For a generation growing up in this world, at the heart of the modern opioid crisis, addiction isn’t an abstraction, it’s neighbours, parents, and friends. ‘Family’ could mean love, or reluctant foster care. For Demon, born on the wrong side of luck, the affection and safety he craves is as remote as the ocean he dreams of seeing one day. The wonder is in how far he’s willing to travel to try and get there.

    Suffused with truth, anger and compassion, Demon Copperhead is an epic tale of love, loss and everything in between.

    ‘Legit about to get an ‘I’d rather be reading Demon Copperhead’ sticker for my Nissan Murano.’ ROB DELANEY

    With an Introduction and Notes by Dr Tim Middleton, Head of English Studies, University of Ripon and York.

    In seeking to discover his inner self, the brilliant Dr Jekyll discovers a monster. First published to critical acclaim in 1886, this mesmerising thriller is a terrifying study of the duality of man’s nature, and it is the book which established Stevenson’s reputation as a writer.

    Also included in this volume is Stevenson’s 1887 collection of short stories, The Merry Men and Other Tales and Fables.

    The Merry Men is a gripping Highland tale of shipwrecks and madness; Markheim, the sinister study of the mind of a murderer; Thrawn Janet, a spine-chilling tale of demonic possession; Olalla, a study of degeneration and incipient vampirism in the Spanish mountains; Will O’ the Mill, a thought-provoking fable about a mountain inn-keeper; and The Treasure of Franchard, a study of French bourgeois life.

  • Dracula (Deluxe Hardbound Edition): A Timeless Novel of Gothic Fiction Vampire Novel Horror Classic Transylvania Victorian Era Supernatural Creatures … and Bloodlust Perfect…

    08
    This is a beautiful hardbound edition of Dracula that comes with gilded edges and elegantly designed endpapers. Dracula is an epistolary novel, written as a collection of realistic but completely fictional diary entries, telegrams, letters, ship’s logs, and newspaper clippings, all of which add a level of detailed realism to Stoker’s story. At the time of its publication, Dracula was considered a ‘straightforward horror novel’ based on imaginary creations of supernatural life. Dracula has been assigned to many literary genres including vampire literature, horror fiction, the gothic novel, and invasion literature. The novel touches on themes such as the role of women in Victorian culture, sexual conventions, immigration, colonialism, and post-colonialism. Although Stoker did not invent the vampire, he defined its modern form through this novel.

    05

    Introduction and Notes by Dr David Rogers, Kingston University.

    ‘There he lay looking as if youth had been half-renewed, for the white hair and moustache were changed to dark iron-grey, the cheeks were fuller, and the white skin seemed ruby-red underneath; the mouth was redder than ever, for on the lips were gouts of fresh blood, which trickled from the corners of the mouth and ran over the chin and neck. Even the deep, burning eyes seemed set amongst the swollen flesh, for the lids and pouches underneath were bloated. It seemed as if the whole awful creature were simply gorged with blood; he lay like a filthy leech, exhausted with his repletion.’

    Thus Bram Stoker, one of the greatest exponents of the supernatural narrative, describes the demonic subject of his chilling masterpiece Dracula, a truly iconic and unsettling tale of vampirism.

    Elizabeth has become quite accustomed to solving even the most complex of murders. And though she quickly identifies the 70-year-old victim, Edward St Cyr, from his signet ring, the search for his killer is not so straight forward .St Cyr led an unconventional, often controversial life, making many enemies along the way in the quiet, rural world of North Norfolk, where everyone knows each other’s business.

    The morning after a dinner party at Windsor Castle, eighty-nine-year-old Queen Elizabeth is shocked to discover that one of her guests has been found murdered in his room, with a rope around his neck.

  • How To Wipe Your Arse In Thailand

    03
    Author Pete Wood had been longing to vanish down the hippy trail into Southeast Asia ever since the 1990s. Inspired by countless colourful characters he’d met over the years, the ambitious pilgrimage abroad was less about finding himself but more about the stories and memories that were just waiting to be made. After years and years of set-backs and some close-calls (life always gets in the way of even the best-laid plans), Wood, deciding there would never be a perfect time to go travelling, threw caution to the wind to pursue a life-long dream – and it made for the craziest, most unpredictable ride of his entire life. Divided into the key milestones of his ambitious adventure, Wood recalls with heartfelt humour and intriguing hindsight the ridiculous situations he managed to get himself into. While he visited the gorgeous vistas and exotic towns that would give anyone a severe case of wanderlust, the cast of characters he came into contact with during his stay were just as important in making his journey across Thailand such a life-changing experience.Insightful cultural observations and gripping personal stories are captured in Wood’s hilarious new memoir, How to Wipe Your Arse in Thailand. As he details his four month stint in Southeast Asia, Wood covers both the highs and lows of Thai culture, with every charming anecdote told through the author’s signature frank and witty prose. While there’s adventure to be had in the author’s sprawling recollection of his life-changing journey, it’s the funny asides, observations and commentary that you wouldn’t get anywhere else that makes Pete Wood’s latest book one of the most unique travelling experiences you could get your hands on.

  • Irish Sentence Builders – LISTENING – Student Book (The Language Gym – Sentence Builder Books)

    01

    The Student Book

    This Irish Listening Booklet matches to the minutest details the content of the 19 units included in the best-selling workbook for beginner-to-pre-intermediate learners “Irish sentence builders”, by the same authors.

    For best results, the two books should be used together.

    This book fully implements Dr Conti’s popular approach to listening-skills instruction, L.A.M. (aka Listening-As-Modelling), laid out in his seminal work: “Breaking the Sound Barrier: Teaching Learners how to Listen” (Conti and Smith, 2019).
    L.A.M. is based on the concept that listening instruction should train students in the mastery of the key micro-listening skills identified by cognitive psychologists.

    Each unit contains around 13 listening tasks, which provide continuous and extensive recycling of the target constructions and vocabulary items and address the development of the key listening micro-skills.

    The tasks include engaging and tested Conti classics such as: “Spot the intruder”, “Missing details”, “Faulty transcript”, “Break the flow”, “Faulty translation”, “Gapped translation” and “Listening slalom”, alongside more traditional listening comprehension tasks.
