Jesus Saves

From one of the most daring and sensuous young writers in America, Jesus Saves, a New York Times Notable Book of the Year, is a suburban gothic that explores the sources of evil, confronts the dynamic shifts within theology, and traces the consequences of suburban alienation. Set in the modern launch pads of adolescent ritual, the strip malls and duplexes on the back side of suburbia, it's the story of two girls: Ginger, a troubled minister's daughter; and Sandy Patrick, who has been abducted from summer camp and now smiles from missing-child posters all over town.

Layering the dreamscapes of Alice in Wonderland with the subculture of River's Edge, Darcey Steinke's Jesus Saves is an unforgettable passage through the depths of the literary imagination.

Tak zaczęła się ich wielka, pełna poświęceń miłość. Arthur uratował Lauren, ale w pamięci cudem ocalonej dziewczyny nie zachował się żaden ślad ich związku, ani minionych wydarzeń.

Po powrocie do San Francisco walczy ze sobą, omija miejsca, gdzie mógłby zetknąć się z Lauren. Tymczasem młoda lekarka nie potrafi zapomnieć tajemniczego mężczyzny, który czuwał przy jej szpitalnym łożu, gdy budziła się ze śpiączki. Kim był – człowiekiem, którego znała przed wypadkiem, czy księciem z bajki? Przewrotny los ponownie ich połączy – i jeszcze raz rozdzieli. Tym razem to Lauren musi znaleźć sposób, by ocalić miłość – musi odszukać i uratować Artura, zanim nie będzie za późno…

Jeżynowe Wino

Jeżynowe wino to najnowsza powieść Joanne Harris. Jej bohaterem jest Jay Mackintosh, pisarz i romantyk, który w swej twórczości i wyobraźni powraca wciąż do lat dzieciństwa. Za sprawą pułapki pamięci świat ten okazuje się bardziej kuszący, niż był w rzeczywistości. Kiedy pod wpływem impulsu Jay kupuje posiadłość we francuskiej wiosce Lansquet – wraz z duchami przeszłości pojawiają się nowe pokusy. Szczególnie intryguje go postać nie utrzymującej z nikim kontaktów pięknej sąsiadki, która najwyraźniej skrywa za drewnianymi okiennicami straszliwe tajemnice. W życie Jaya powraca też magia, którą próbował przywołać przez wiele, wiele lat. Za wszystko trzeba jednak zapłacić swoją cenę.

Postacie wykreowane przez Joanne Harris poruszają serce i wyobraźnię. Książka przypomina nieco nastrojem opowieści Petera Mayle'a. Niejeden z nas chciałby się przenieść w stworzony przez pisarkę świat.

Poprzednia powieść Joanne Harris Czekolada odniosła wielki sukces wydawniczy na całym świecie. Na jej podstawie powstał film z Johnym Deepem i Juliette Binoche w rolach głównych.

Jezus – Człowiek, Który Nie Istniał: Pytania do Benedykta XVI

Kiedy opublikowana została, w wielu krajach świata jednocześnie, książka papieża Benedykta XVI pt. "Jezus z Nazaretu", postanowiliśmy oddać w ręce Czytelników pracę Roberta A. Haaslera pt. "Jezus. Człowiek, który nie istniał", a w podtytule: "Pytania do Benedykta XVI". Tym samym chcemy nawiązać do papieskiej publikacji, zadając odwieczne pytania: kim naprawdę był Jezus z Nazaretu; dlaczego nagromadziło się tak wiele nieścisłości i nieporozumień co do historyczności tej postaci? Długo zastanawialiśmy się w wydawnictwie nad edycją tej książki. Zdajemy sobie bowiem sprawę, jak wielu ona oburzy, gdyż pytamy w niej o osobę najważniejszą dla każdego chrześcijanina. Gdyby okazało się, że wątpliwości co do istnienia historycznego Jezusa były uzasadnione, wtedy musielibyśmy wszyscy zweryfikować nie tyle podstawy wiary, co tradycję, w której byliśmy wychowywani.

Jæger – i krig med eliten

Я первый егерь, который написал книгу об операциях корпуса в зоне боевых действий. Я сделал это потому что на протяжении многих лет сталкивался с множеством мифов и заблуждений о том, что значит быть егерем и что такое Jægerkorpset. Даже моя семья и друзья весьма расплывчато представляют что есть моя работа. Я также думаю, что народ Дании имеет право знать об усилиях в войне в Афганистане и Ираке, на что идут их деньги.


С помощью этой книги я попытаюсь дать как можно более реалистичную и честную оценку событиям в которых участвовал. Имена моих коллег, названия операций и географические названия изменены. Часть прибыли от книги я намерен пожертвовать корпусу. Наконец я подчеркиваю, что книга выражает только мой личный взгляд, мнение и опыт. Это не мнение армии Дании или Jægerkorpset.

Jigsaw Youth

Lose your best friend because you finally Came Out. Spend days driving aimlessly because there's nothing to do. Serve your rapist breakfast because you need your job. Fall asleep to gunshots and sirens because that's the only sense of home you've ever known. Hold hands with ghosts. Your life is in pieces, but you can't be broken. Wipe off the blood. Tired of being told who to be, what to wear, how to act and who to fuck. Break the rules and learn fast how to never get caught. All you need is nothing, but you're happy with your car, guitar and camera. Throwing around polaroids of tits like they're money, you swap stories about adventures and realize that we're all running away from something.

Jillian’s Job

What good is a dream income, access to a private jet, all the perks that go with being Mike Furie’s überproficient personal assistant, if Jillian has no life? She wants a life with a man in it. And staying with overbearing, totally sexy, self-serving bachelor Mike will lead nowhere.

A trip to Aspen to “rescue” Mike from the clutches of the latest woman seeking to sink her claws into him, an excess of champagne to fortify her, and she tells him what she thinks of his high-handed tactics. She’s quitting. Again.

So how the hell did she end up in bed with him in a Tahoe honeymoon suite, naked? Why can’t she recall how her signature got on that marriage license?

Mike discovers talents he never knew Jill possessed. Now he has her right where he wants her. And he wants her again…and again. In his bed and under him. But it’s not all about the lust, and if he gets his way, Jillian won’t be leaving his side or his bed-ever.

Jim Morrison’s Adventures in the Afterlife

Part devil, part angel, the specter of Jim Morrison has haunted America's consciousness since his premature death in 1971. His spirit seemed dark, and the graphic despair of his Lizard King persona reigned supreme in his lifetime, but Jim Morrison died with a smile on his face. Was his journey through the afterlife as tumultuous as his journey through life? This is the question Mick Farren answers in his fascinatingly complex novel based on one of the twentieth century's most enigmatic figures.

Jim Morrison's Adventures in the Afterlife picks up the story of Morrison as he hurtles through a purgatory-like afterlife in search of some way to bring his soul to peace. Along the way he finds Doc Holliday--and together they find themselves chasing the restless fire-and-brimstone evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson, whose soul has broken after death into two warring halves. McPherson's sexier half becomes the object of Jim's obsession, and as the two struggle to find each other in this disordered land, their wild, careening chase through a dozen dystopiae recalls imagined worlds as diverse as Burgess's A Clockwork Orange or Terry Gilliam's Brazil.

This is a daring, hilarious romp through the landfill of millennial society. Possessed of an imagination that rivals that of any of our edgiest fantasists, steeped in the detritus and ephemera of three decades of pop culture, Mick Farren has crafted in this new novel a bizarre and compelling fantasia.

Jimfish

In the 1980s, a small man is pulled up out of the Indian Ocean in Port Pallid, SA, claiming to have been kidnapped as a baby. The Sergeant, whose job it is to sort the local people by colour, and thereby determine their fate, peers at the boy, then sticks a pencil into his hair, as one did in those days, waiting to see if it stays there, or falls out before he gives his verdict:

'He's very odd, this Jimfish you've hauled in. If he's white he is not the right sort of white. But if he's black, who can say? We'll wait before we classify him. I'll give his age as 18, and call him Jimfish. Because he's a real fish out of water, this one is.'

So begins the odyssey of Jimfish, a South African Everyman, who defies the usual classification of race that defines the rainbow nation. His journey through the last years of Apartheid will extend beyond the borders of South Africa to the wider world, where he will be an unlikely witness to the defining moments of the dying days of the twentieth century. Part fable, part fierce commentary on the politics of power, this work is the culmination of a lifetime's writing and thinking, on both the Apartheid regime and the history of the twentieth century, by a writer of enormous originality and range.

Jitterbug Perfume

Jitterbug Perfume is an epic.

Which is to say, it begins in the forests of ancient Bohemia and doesn't conclude until nine o'clock tonight (Paris time).

It is a saga as well. A saga must have a hero, and the hero of this one is a janitor with a missing bottle.

The bottle is blue, very, very old, and embossed with the image of a goat-horned god.

If the liquid in the bottle actually is the secret essence of the universe, as some folks seem to think, it had better be discovered soon because it is leaking and there is only a drop or two left.

Joe Speedboat

A sparkling coming-of-age novel that has sold over 300,000 copies in Holland, in which the inhabitants of a sleepy rural town are awakened by the arrival of a kinetic young visionary, Joe Speedboat.

After a farming accident plunges him into a coma for six months, Frankie Hermans wakes up to discover that he’s paralyzed and mute. Bound to a wheelchair, Frankie struggles to adjust to a life where he must rely on others to complete even the simplest tasks. The only body part he can control is his right arm, which he uses obsessively to record the details of daily life in his town.

But when he meets Joe—a boy who blazed into town like a meteor while Frankie slept—everything changes. Joe is a centrifugal force, both magician and daredevil, and he alone sees potential strength in Frankie’s handicaps. With Joe’s help, Frankie’s arm will be used for more that just writing: as a champion arm-wrestler, Frankie will be powerful enough to win back his friends, and maybe even woo P. J., the girl who has them all in a tailspin.

Alive with the profundities of adolescence, Joe Speedboat is the supersonic story of an unlikely alliance and a lightning-quick dash to.

Johannes Cabal the Detective

Johannes Cabal, necromancer of some little infamy, returns in this riotously clever and terrifically twisted tale of murder and international intrigue.


In this genre-twisting novel, infamous necromancer Johannes Cabal, after beating the Devil and being reunited with his soul, leads us on another raucous journey in a little-known corner of the world. This time he's on the run from the local government.

Stealing the identity of a minor bureaucrat, Cabal takes passage on the Princess Hortense, a passenger aeroship that is leaving the country. The deception seems perfect, and Cabal looks forward to a quiet trip and a clean escape, until he comes face-to-face with Leonie Barrow, an enemy from the old days who could blow his cover. But when a fellow passenger throws himself to his death, or at least that is how it appears, Cabal begins to investigate out of curiosity. His minor efforts result in a vicious attempt on his own life — and then the gloves come off.

Cabal and Leonie — the only woman to ever match wits with him — reluctantly team up to discover the murderer. Before they are done, there will be more narrow escapes, involving sword fighting and newfangled flying machines. There will be massive destruction, not to mention resurrected dead.


Steampunk meets the classic Sherlockian mystery in this rip-roaring adventure where anything could happen… and does.

Amused and slightly bored, Satan proposes a little wager: Johannes has to persuade one hundred people to sign over their souls or he will be damned forever. This time for real. Accepting the bargain, Jonathan is given one calendar year and a traveling carnival to complete his task. With little time to waste, Johannes raises a motley crew from the dead and enlists his brother, Horst, a charismatic vampire to help him run his nefarious road show, resulting in mayhem at every turn.

John

In the tradition of Jim Crace’s Quarantine and Anita Diamant’s The Red Tent, John is a stunning, lyrical reimagining of John the Apostle in the final years of his life, by the critically acclaimed and bestselling author of Four Letters of Love.

At a time when Americans remain skeptical about religion but still thirst for spiritual fulfillment, Niall Williams’s extraordinary and masterful new novel reveals a universally appealing message of hope and love.

In the years following the death of Jesus Christ, John the Apostle, now a frail, blind old man, lives in forced exile on the desolate island of Patmos with a small group of his disciples. Together, the group has endured their banishment, but after years awaiting Christ’s return, fissures form within their faith, and, inevitably, one of John’s followers disavows Christ’s divinity and breaks away from the community, threatening to change the course of Christianity. When the Roman emperor lifts the banishment of Christians, John and his followers are permitted to return to Ephesus, a chaotic world of competing religious sects where Christianity is in danger of vanishing. It is against this turbulent background — and inspired by Jesus’s radical message of love and forgiveness — that John comes to dictate his Gospel.

Immensely impressive — and based on actual historical events—John is at once an ambitious and provocative reimagining of the last surviving apostle and a powerful look at faith and how it lives and dies in the hearts of men.

John Crow's Devil

Pile them up, a Marlon James character says repeatedly, and Marlon does just that. Pile them up: language, imagery, technique, imagination. All fresh, all exciting. This is a writer to watch out for.”—Chris Abani, author of GraceLand, winner of the Hemingway/PEN Award

“This is the finest and most important first novel I’ve read in years. James’s writing brings to mind early Toni Morrison, Jessica Hagedorn, and Gabriel García Márquez.”—Kaylie Jones, author of Speak Now and A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries

“Marlon James spins his magical web in this novel and we willingly suspend disbelief, rewarded by the window he opens to Jamaica (and a world) rarely portrayed in fiction.”—Elizabeth Nunez, author of Bruised Hibiscus, winner of the American Book Award

This stunning debut novel tells the story of a biblical struggle in a remote Jamaican village in 1957. With language as taut as classic works by Cormac McCarthy, and a richness reminiscent of early Toni Morrison, Marlon James reveals his unique narrative command that will firmly establish his place as one of today's freshest, most talented young writers.

In the village of Gibbeah-where certain women fly and certain men protect secrets with their lives-magic coexists with religion, and good and evil are never as they seem. In this town, a battle is fought between two men of God. The story begins when a drunkard named Hector Bligh (the "Rum Preacher") is dragged from his pulpit by a man calling himself "Apostle" York. Handsome and brash, York demands a fire-and-brimstone church, but sets in motion a phenomenal and deadly struggle for the soul of Gibbeah itself. John Crow's Devil is a novel about religious mania, redemption, sexual obsession, and the eternal struggle inside all of us between the righteous and the wicked.

John Dies at the End

It's a drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. On the street they call it Soy Sauce, and users drift across time and dimensions. But some who come back are no longer human. Suddenly, a silent otherworldly invasion is underway, and mankind needs a hero. What it gets instead is John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. Can these two stop the oncoming horror in time to save humanity?

No. No, they can't.

John Dies at the End has been described as a 'Horrortacular', an epic of 'spectacular' horror that combines the laugh out loud humor of the best R-rated comedy, with the darkest terror of H.P. Lovecraft. Hilarious, terrifying, engaging and wrench ing, John Dies at the End takes us for a wild ride with two slackers from the Midwest who really have better things to do with their time than prevent the apocalypse.
