Ice

The epic of Island Life that has gripped Finland Winner of the Finlandia Prize Nominated for the Nordic Criti Prize

It is the summer of 1946. A novice Lutheran priest, his wife and baby daughter arrive at a windswept island off the coast of Finland, where they are welcomed by its frugal, self-sufficient community of fisher folk turned reluctant farmers. In this deeply atmospheric and quietly epic tale, Lundberg uses a wealth of everyday detail to draw us irresistibly into a life and mindset far removed from our own—stoic and devout yet touched with humour and a propensity for song. With each season, the young family’s love of the island and its disparate and scattered inhabitants deepens, and when the winter brings ice new and precarious links appear.

Told in spare, simple prose that mirrors the islanders’ unadorned style, this is a story as immersive as it is heartrending.

Imperium

Lorsque Tiron, le secrétaire particulier d'un sénateur romain, ouvre la porte à un étranger terrorisé, il déclenche une suite d'événements qui vont propulser son maître au sein d'une des plus célèbres et dramatiques affaires de l'Histoire.

L'étranger est un Sicilien victime de Verrès, gouverneur vicieux et corrompu. Le sénateur en question, c'est Cicéron, un jeune et brillant avocat déterminé à atteindre l'imperium — pouvoir suprême au sein de l'État.

À travers la voix captivante de Tiron, nous sommes plongés dans l'univers perfide et violent de la politique romaine, et nous suivons un homme — intelligent, sensible, mais aussi arrogant et roublard — dans sa lutte pour accéder au sommet.

C'est un monde qui ressemble étonnamment à celui d'aujourd'hui, toile de fond d'un véritable thriller politique autour de l'irrésistible ascension de Cicéron. « Tout ce qu'il avait, écrit Tiron de son maître, c'était sa voix, et par sa seule volonté, il en a fait la voix la plus célèbre du monde. »


Journaliste politique, romancier Robert Harris est l'auteur de Fatherland, Enigma, Archange, traduits dans le monde entier. Son précédent roman, Pompéi, a été en tête de toutes les listes de best-sellers.

« Harris combine magistralement son esprit critique de journaliste politique et ses techniques d'auteur de thrillers. »

Imperium

From the bestselling author of Pompeii comes the first volume in an exciting new trilogy set in ancient Rome – an imaginary biography of Cicero, Rome 's first and greatest politician. Of all the great figures of Roman times, none was more fascinating or attractive than Marcus Cicero. A brilliant lawyer and orator, a famous wit and philosopher, he launched himself at the age of twenty-seven into the violent, treacherous world of Roman politics. Cicero was determined to attain imperium, the supreme power in the state. Beside him at all times in his struggle to reach the top – the office of Consul – was his confidential secretary, Tiro. An accomplished man, Tiro was the inventor of shorthand and the author of numerous books, including a famous life of Cicero, unfortunately lost in the Dark Ages. In Imperium, Robert Harris recreates Tiro's vanished masterpiece, recounting in vivid detail the story of Cicero 's rise to power, from radical young lawyer to first citizen of Rome, competing with men such as Pompey, Caesar, Crassus and Cato. Harris's Cicero is an immensely sympathetic figure. In his introduction to this imaginary memoir, Tato states: “Cicero was unique in the history of the Roman republic in that he pursued supreme power with no resources to help him apart from his own talent… All he had was his voice, and by sheer effort of will, he turned it into the most famous voice in the world.”

Ever since Walter Scott wrote Waverley, the dominant tradition of the historical novel has been one of obsessive realism. Why this should be so is no great mystery. By and large, only novelists who take drug culture as their theme, or perhaps a poverty-stricken upbringing in Ireland, feel under greater pressure to demonstrate the authenticity of their material. This, for historical novelists who do not push their settings too far back in time, can often prove a positive inspiration. Robert Harris, writing about Bletchley Park in his thriller Enigma, was evoking a period when the fashion in English fiction had itself been broadly realist. Not only did this provide him with a ready supply of juicy period detail, it also justified the recycling of it. A genre, after all, is as much a product of its time as anything else. A novel set in 1940s England has every right to be as realist as it likes.

But what about fiction set in the more distant past? We have plenty of literature from the pre-modern era, but it is often of limited value to writers working in the realist tradition. Indeed, in most periods of ancient history, there isn't much of a reality to be realist about. The most surefire solution to this problem, because also the most brutal, is simply to embrace anachronism – what might be termed the Up Pompeii approach. The modern exemplar of this is Lindsey Davis, and her hugely entertaining Falco novels. Flavian Rome may provide the backdrop, but there is never any doubt that Falco himself, for all his togas, is a thoroughly modern private eye. Indeed, since the genre of the detective novel is a modern one, it is hard to imagine what a credibly ancient private eye might be like.

Harris, whose first three novels were set in the 20th century, played things similarly safe when he too moved back in time to Flavian Rome. Pompeii, a thriller about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, was essentially a blending of Chinatown and any number of disaster movies. As a page-turner, it was predictably gripping; but as a recreation of the 1st century AD it had inevitable limitations. How, after all, was a contemporary genre supposed to offer an authentic vision of a period to which it was profoundly alien? This is a question to which Harris has evidently been giving much thought; and in his new novel, Imperium, he presents us with his solution.

The setting, like that of Pompeii, is classical. A century and a half before the eruption of Vesuvius, the Roman world was administered not by an emperor but as a republic. Rival players competed for the fruits of power: the "imperium" of the title. Since Rome was by this stage the undisputed mistress of the Mediterranean, the potential pickings were mouth-watering. As ambitions turned ever more carnivorous, so politics took on an increasingly lurid and epic hue. Two thousand years on, those who emerged from the power struggle still cast a lengthy shadow over the imagination: Pompey, Crassus, Caesar, Cicero.

Rich material for any writer – but there is a further reason, I suspect, why Harris has chosen the mid-1st century BC as his setting. It is, by a wide margin, the best documented period in ancient history, with what is, for the classicist, a whole wealth of evidence: orations, memoirs, even personal correspondence. Harris, like an excavator restoring a shattered mosaic, uses material native to the Romans whenever he can, fitting the fragments of real speeches and letters into the patterns of his own reconstruction. The result is an experiment as bold as it is unexpected: a novel that draws so scrupulously on the Roman source material that it forgoes much of what are traditionally regarded as the prime features of the thriller. Although there is detective work, there is no detective; although there are twists and turns, there is rarely any artificial ratcheting up of suspense. Instead, Harris trusts to the rhythm of the republic's politics to generate his trademark readability, a rhythm that the Romans themselves enshrined in their literature as something relentlessly exciting: in short, a thriller. Genres ancient and modern have rarely been so skilfully synthesised.

Like I Claudius, a novel that similarly exploited the resources of classical literature, Imperium takes the form of a memoir. Tiro, the shy and bookish slave who writes it, was celebrated in ancient times as the inventor of shorthand: Harris has him transcribing key conversations and speeches with a flawless accuracy, and even, on one occasion, when he is secreted into a conference, serving as a human bug. But that is not the limit of Tiro's value as a literary device, for he was also the slave of the most prolific author in ancient history, the Roman who more than any other reveals himself to us in all his manifold contradictions, his brilliance and his blindness, his ambition and his vulnerability: Marcus Tullius Cicero.

Tiro's master, unlike the aristocrats who customarily secured power in the republic, was a parvenu, with no family tradition of imperium to draw upon, and few other resources save for the spell-binding power of his oratory. It was this that made his rise to the consulship, the supreme office in Rome, all the more extraordinary; and it is the story of this rise that Harris uses to structure his narrative. Cicero, who was as vain as he was insecure, would have been delighted by the result. Once, in a letter to a friend, he anxiously wondered what people would be saying about him in a thousand years' time. To know, more than two millennia after his death, that he is the hero of such a gripping and accomplished novel must be giving his shade the most exquisite delight.

In a Dark Wood Wandering

This novel exemplifies historical fiction at its best; the author's meticulous research and polished style bring the medieval world into vibrant focus. Set during the Hundred Years War (1337–1453), the narrative creates believable human beings from the great roll of historical figures. Here are the mad Charles VI, the brilliant Louis d'Orleans, Joan of Arc, Henry V, and, most importantly, Charles d'Orleans, whose loyalty to France brought him decades of captivity in England. A natural poet and scholar, his birth and rank thrust him into the center of intrigue and strife, and through his observant eyes readers enter fully into his colorful, dangerous times. First published in the Netherlands in 1949, this book has never been out of print there and has been reprinted 15 times.

Hella S. Haasse has written 17 novels as well as poetry, plays and essays, and has received many honors and awards including the Netherlands State Award for Literature. Her books have been translated into English, French, German, Swedish, Italian, Hungarian, Serbo-Croatian and Welsh.

Into the Gates of Hell: Stug Command '41

03:15, 22nd June 1941◦— Barbarossa is unleashed and Kampfgruppe von Schroif are right there at the cutting edge of the battle for Russia.

Penetrating, authentic and stunning in its detail, the long awaited prequel to the highly acclaimed “Tiger Command!” is a powerful addition to the series.

Written by Emmy™ Award winning writer Bob Carruthers and newcomer Sinclair McLay and edited by Mark Farr, this much anticipated Eastern Front novel also explores the dark underside of war as von Schroif is faced with the malevolent presence of Oskar Dirlewanger.

 
Invitation to a Bonfire

The seductive story of a dangerous love triangle, inspired by the infamous Nabokov marriage, with a spellbinding psychological thriller at its core.

In the 1920s, Zoya Andropova, a young refugee from the Soviet Union, finds herself in the alien landscape of an elite all-girls New Jersey boarding school. Having lost her family, her home, and her sense of purpose, Zoya struggles to belong, a task made more difficult by the malice her peers heap on scholarship students and her new country’s paranoia about Russian spies. When she meets the visiting writer and fellow Russian émigré Leo Orlov—whose books Zoya has privately obsessed over for years—her luck seems to have taken a turn for the better. But she soon discovers that Leo is not the solution to her loneliness: he’s committed to his art and bound by the sinister orchestrations of his brilliant wife, Vera.

As the reader unravels the mystery of Zoya, Lev, and Vera’s fate, Zoya is faced with mounting pressure to figure out who she is and what kind of life she wants to build. Grappling with class distinctions, national allegiance, and ethical fidelity—not to mention the powerful magnetism of sex—Invitation to a Bonfire investigates how one’s identity is formed, irrevocably, through a series of momentary decisions, including how to survive, who to love, and whether to pay the complicated price of happiness.

  •  Лето летающих
     Москвин Николай Яковлевич
     Проза, Историческая проза, Детское, Детская проза

    Эта повесть о мальчиках и бумажных змеях и о приключениях, которые с ними происходят. Здесь рассказывается о детстве одного лётчика-конструктора, которое протекает в дореволюционное время; о том, как в мальчике просыпается «чувство воздуха», о том, как от змеев он стремится к воздушному полёту.

    Действие повести происходит в годы зарождения отечественной авиации, и юные герои её, запускающие пока в небо змея, мечтают о лётных подвигах. Повесть овеяна чувством романтики, мечты, стремлением верно служить своей родине.

  •  Копелето
     Олесен Ане-Мари Ведсьо
     Проза, Историческая проза

    Испания, 1569 година. Близо век след окончателната победа на християните над маврите, под управлението на крал Филип II привидно цари спокойствие и стабилност. В действителност страната е взривоопасно буре барут от борби за власт и жестоки санкции срещу всеки, който дори само породи съмнения за симпатии към мюсюлмани и евреи.

    Инквизицията действа с твърда ръка, екзекуторите и отровителите не остават без работа, еретиците изгарят на клада, а рискът от въоръжен ответ от страна на арабите и османците е напълно реален. След като се измъква на косъм от религиозните сблъсъци във Франция, Мадлен дьо Мондидие се отправя към Мадрид. Там тя се озовава насред отровните игри на короната, църквата и жадните за власт интриганти, а тайната й любовна връзка с полубрата на краля, Хуан Австрийски, изисква цялото й внимание и умения. Не само за да опази собствения си живот, но и за да защити нероденото си дете, чийто баща е известен единствено на нея самата.


    „Копелето“ е втората книга, която продължава историята на Мадлен след събитията, описани в „Придворната дама“. Романът е емоционално и чувствено описание на един кървав и важен период в европейската история, но и разказ за жена, която търси истината сред мрежата от преструвки и измами.

  •  О том чего уж больше нет
     Шипунов Виктор Владимирович
     Проза, Историческая проза, Современная проза

    Я прожил с дедом около 22-х лет под одной крышей. Познакомился с ним, когда мне было три года. Эта книга практически мемуарная, в которой постарался сохранить все его рассказы в максимальном приближении к тому, как я их слышал.

    Книга разделена на три неравных части: при царе, в станице, первая мировая война и революция. Самая большая из них первая. Об этой счастливой поре он больше всего любил вспоминать. Он был маленьким человеком, выходцем из народа. Но именно такие люди, собранные в массу, и делают историю.

    Здесь нет никакой нарочитой романтики или предпочтения какой-либо политической или иной теории. Все что написано было именно так, от меня в книге самая минимальная литературная обработка. Выдумать такое невозможно. Все написанное в книге, мне кажется, удалось выдержать в духе того, как это рассказывали мне. Большинство историй повторялись многократно, с вариациями, дополняя их деталями, но некоторые я слышал всего по единственному разу.

  •  Парижский оборотень
     Эндор Гай
     Фантастика, Ужасы и Мистика, Проза, Историческая проза

    Роман «Парижский оборотень» (1933) американского писателя Гая Эндора занимает в фантазиях о вервольфах такое же основополагающее место, как «Дракула» Б. Стокера — в литературе вампирической. Но кровавое повествование Эндора, которое часто именуют готическим, выходит далеко за рамки описания трагической судьбы оборотня Бертрана Кайе или простого романа ужасов: это и панорама Парижа времен франко-прусской войны и Парижской коммуны, и, прежде всего, рассуждение о природе зла. Роман впервые переводится на русский язык.

  •  Черленый Яр. Потомок Святогора
     Душнев Виктор Михайлович
     Проза, Историческая проза

    Историческая трилогия липецкого писателя В. М. Душнева посвящена героическим событиям почти восьмисотлетней давности. Тема её в определённом смысле уникальна: те эпизоды прошлого нашего народа отражены в отечественной исторической романистике ранее не были.

    Первая книга трилогии — «Потомок Святогора» — рассказывает о начале борьбы русичей против произвола татарского баскака Ахмата. Вопреки запрету, наложенному на баскаков ещё Батыем, Ахмат поставил в русских землях две собственные слободы, и в 1283 г., не в силах терпеть долее татарские поборы и грабежи, в граничащих с Диким Полем княжествах вспыхнуло восстание.

    Книга адресована всем, кто любит историю, кому не безразлично прошлое, а значит и настоящее, и будущее нашей Родины.
