M is for Malice

From Publishers Weekly

Approaching middle age warily, PI Kinsey Millhone of the Southern California coast is mildly depressed, romantically vulnerable and in the process of reassessing her family ties. Yet, when it comes to her professional abilities, she's at the top of her form, as this deftly plotted and absorbing novel (her 13th appearance, after L Is for Lawless) proves. Bader Malek, a local industrial tycoon, has died, and his four sons now stand to inherit a substantial fortune. But one of them, Guy, has been missing since 1968. A drug addict, ne'er-do-well and all-around miscreant, Guy had been disinherited by his exasperated father shortly before he vanished. But that particular will has disappeared, and Kinsey has been hired by the family to find out if Guy is still alive and thus in line to collect his original portion of the estate. She quickly succeeds in locating him and brings back a sweet, guileless and totally reformed man. But is he? The three other brothers?a truly devious, arrogant and greedy lot?are deeply ambivalent about Guy's return. A murder in the family leaves the surviving Malek kin as prime suspects. This is a subtle and swiftly moving novel, pleasantly unpredictable, with an agreeable overlay of smoldering romance, as fellow PI and former lover Robert Dietz reenters Kinsey's life. Grafton's heroine?more introspective, yet still feisty and surefooted?leads this finely tuned and at times electrifying tale to a thoroughly satisfying conclusion. 1,000,000 first printing.

M Jak Magia

Nowy zbiór opowiadań przeznaczony jest nie tylko dla dorosłych ale również dla młodszych czytelników.

Neil Gaiman tak mówi o swojej nowej książce: W zebranych tu opowiadaniach spotkacie twardego detektywa ze świata dziecięcych bajek i grupę ludzi, którzy lubią jadać najróżniejsze rzeczy, znajdziecie też wiersz o tym, jak się zachować, gdy traficie do magicznego świata, i historię o chłopcu, który spotyka pod mostem trolla i dobija z nim targu. Jest tu też opowieść, która stanie się częścią mojej następnej książki dla dzieci, “Księgi cmentarnej” o chłopcu, który mieszka na cmentarzu, wychowywany przez umarłych, a także opowiadanie, które napisałem w młodości, zatytułowane “Jak sprzedać Most Pontyjski”, historia fantasy zainspirowana przez autentycznego człowieka, “Hrabiego” Victora Lustiga, który naprawdę sprzedał wieżę Eiffla, mniej więcej w taki właśnie sposób (po czym w kilka lat później zmarł w więzieniu Alcatraz). Jest tu kilka nieco strasznych historii, kilka innych raczej zabawnych, a także parę nie należących do żadnej z tych kategorii. Mam jednak nadzieję, że i tak się wam spodobają.

Gdy byłem chłopcem, Ray Bradbury wybrał ze swoich wcześniejszych zbiorów opowiadania, które, jak uznał, przypadną do gustu młodszym czytelnikom i wydał je w książkach “R jak rakieta” i “K jak kosmos”. Skoro zdecydowałem się na to samo, spytałem Raya, czy miałby coś przeciw temu, gdybym zatytułował ten zbiór “M jak magia”. (Nie miał.)

M naprawdę jest jak magia, podobnie jak wszystkie litery, jeśli złoży się je razem jak należy. Można z nich tworzyć magię i sny. A także, mam nadzieję, kilka niespodzianek.

Ma belle (сборник стихов)

Ma belle это бегство от любви. Это попытки найти что-то новое и свежее. По-новому рассказать о чём-то избитом, истоптанном предыдущими поколениями. И мне всё ещё есть что сказать! Ma belle это иной взгляд на моё творчество. На мою поэзию. Это что-то новое. Неизведанное.

Ma cavale au Canada

J'aime mieux prévenir.

Celui qui entreprend la lecture de « Ma cavale au Canada » doit avoir le cœur et les roustons bien accrochés, car il y a davantage d'épisodes dramatiques dans cette œuvre magistrale qu'il n'y en a eu pendant toute la dernière guerre et plus de scènes de baise que n'en comptent les règnes d'Henri VIII et d'Elisabeth II réunis.

Prière d'éteindre sa cigarette avant de pénétrer dans ces pages. A l'intérieur, y a déjà plein de gonzesses qui ont le feu aux miches : inutile d'aggraver les risques.

Ma langue au Chah

Pour tout vous dire, je rêvais depuis longtemps d'aller en Iran… Mais pas dans ces conditions !

Au XXe siècle, être obligé de se battre au sabre, c'est surprenant, non ? Mais, croyez-moi, votre San-Antonio se révèle vite un as de cette discipline et les sbires qui se sont frottés à lui, s'ils n'étaient pas déjà des eunuques, ne sont pas près de mettre Casanova en péril.

Quant à Bérurier au pays des mille et une nuits (des mille et un z'ennuis, plutôt), c'est pas racontable en page 4 de couverture.

Sachez qu'il y a plusieurs façons de donner sa langue au chat… La donner au Chah n'est pas la plus facile, vous allez voir !

Mañana en la batalla piensa en mí

Como sucede en las últimas novelas de Javier Marías, la primera frase ya dice mucho, quizá demasiado: `Nadie piensa nunca que pueda ir a encontrarse con una muerta entre los brazos y que ya no verá más su rostro cuyo nombre recuerda`.

Esto es lo que le ocurre al narrador de su nueva y extraordinaria novela. Víctor Francés es guionista de televisión y `negro` o `escritor fantasma`, encargado de redactar los discursos de los hombres importantes e ignorantes. Divorciado recientemente, es invitado a cenar a su casa por Márta Téllez, mujer casada cuyo marido está de viaje en Londres y madre de un niño de casi dos años. Tras la cena galante, el hombre y la mujer pasan al dormitorio, donde, `aún medio vestidos y medio desvestidos`, Marta Téllez empieza a sentirse mal hasta que agoniza y muere en una escena sobrecogedora. Esa infidelidad no consumada se convierte así en una especie de `encantamiento`, con problemas bien reales e inmediatos: qué hacer con el cadáver, avisar o no avisar, qué hacer respecto al marido, qué hacer con el niño dormido, qué diferencia hay entre la vida y la muerte. Víctor Francés tomará pronto sus decisiones, o más bien no las tomará y se irá dejando llevar por sus pasos, inofensivos unas veces y otras envenenados. Conocerá a la familia de su muerta, al padre, Téllez, viejo académico y cortesano, al marido, Deán, con su capacidad de comprensión y de inclemencia infinitas, a la hermana menor, Luisa, a quien seguirá sin propósito. Y se irá poniendo en situación de contar su secreto a quienes no debe. En un Madrid invernal y nocturno, dominado por la niebla o por las tormentas como una isla sitiada, el narrador se convertirá en una sombra que no quiere ni busca nada y, sin embargo, va encontrando: al Unico, para quien deberá escribir un discurso, en una hilarante escena palaciega, a su amigo Ruibérriz de Torres, aficionado al hipódromo y que lleva pintada en la cara su esencia de sinvergüenza, a la puta Victoria de otra larga noche de su pasado en la que confundió su rostro con otro nombre. Y entretanto una maldición va resonando: `Mañana en la batalla piensa en mí, y caiga tu espada sin filo: desespera y muere`.

Una vez más, la escritura asombrosa de Javier Marías sume al lector en un hechizo del que no querrá salir. Con aún mayor fuerza que en sus anteriores éxitos, Todas las almas y Corazón tan blanco, el autor logra una intensa narración sobre algunos asuntos que nos atañen a todos: sobre el ocultamiento, sobre los hechos y las intenciones, sobre el actuar sin saber, sobre la voluntad que casi nunca se cumple, sobre la negación de las personas que una vez quisimos, sobre el olvido que hace de todo `viaje hacia su difuminación lentamente`, sobre la indecisión, sobre la despedida y finalmente sobre el engaño, que quizá `es nuestra condición natural, y en realidad no debería dolernos tanto`.

Machiavelli: A Very Short Introduction

Machiavelli taught that political leaders must be prepared to do evil that good may come of it. Offering the first brief introduction to Machiavelli's thought to appear in twenty-five years, Skinner focuses on his three major works, The Prince, Discourses, and The History of Florence. He discusses the influence of Roman moral thought on Machiavelli, concentrating on the extent to which Machiavelli's teachings represent a reaction against this tradition. Placing Machiavelli in the proper social and intellectual context, Skinner reveals the extraordinary originality of his attack on the prevailing moral and political assumptions of his age.

Mackenzie Family Christmas: The Perfect Gift

Highland Pleasures 4.5

In the chaos of preparations for the celebration--the first of Hart and Eleanor's married life--one of Ian's Ming bowls gets broken, and the family scrambles to save the day. Daniel busily runs a betting ring for everything from the time Eleanor's baby will arrive to whether Mac's former-pugilist valet can win a boxing match to who will be the first of the many guests to be caught under the mistletoe. Ian begins a new obsession, and Beth fears the loss of one of his precious bowls has made him withdraw once more into his private world.

Macroscope

Throughout history, man has been searching for better ways to gather information about his universe. But although they may have longed for it, not even the most brilliant minds could conceive of a device as infinitely powerful or as immeasurably precise as the macroscope, until the twenty-first century. By analyzing information carried on macrons, this unbelievable tool brought the whole universe of wonders to man’s doorstep. The macroscope was seen by many as the salvation of the human race. But in the hands of the wrong man, the macroscope could be immensely destructive — infinitely more dangerous than the nuclear bomb. By searching to know too much, man could destroy the very essence of his mind. This is the powerful story of man’s struggle with technology, and also the story of his human struggle with himself. This novel takes us across the breathtaking ranges of space as well as through the most touching places in the human heart. It is a story of coming of age, of sacrifice, and of love. It is the story of man’s desperate search for a compromise between his mind and his heart, between knowledge and humanity.

Mad Amos Malone

Eighteen twisted tales of the wildest West that’s ever been imagined, from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Pip & Flinx series

Strange things lurk up in the mountains and out in the plains and deserts of the West, but few are as unique as the giant mountain man named Amos Malone, who some call “Mad Amos”—though not to his face. Atop his unnatural steed, Worthless, Mad Amos is prepared to step into any fray and set things right, albeit in his own unusual way.

Now all of his uncanny exploits—including the brand-new story “Stuck”—are collected together for the first time. For this special edition, Alan Dean Foster has also penned original introductions to the series and to each individual adventure.

Featuring eight never-before-collected stories, including…

GHOST WIND: Nature has a way of making even the strongest folks meek. And with a ghost wind coming over the valley, even Mad Amos Malone is feeling the chill.

HOLY JINGLE: Of all the dangers of the Wild West, love might be the most perilous. Because when it goes awry, there’s no telling what might be at stake.

A MOUNTAIN MAN AND A CAT WALK INTO A BAR: Mad Amos isn’t quickly moved to action. Still, when it comes to a dog fight, he’s not afraid to bare his teeth.

STUCK: The untouched grove of Sequoias is one of the most beautiful, soul-rejuvenating, downright sacred places Amos has ever visited. Until he hears a cry for help….

Praise for Mad Amos Malone

“The consistent rhythms of [Alan Dean] Foster’s language, his shaggy-dog puns, and the distinctive clarity of Malone’s rough yet occasionally educated voice draw readers quickly into each story’s mood while maintaining strong connections between the pieces.”

Madame

Powieść jest ironicznym portretem artysty z czasów młodości, dojrzewającego w peerelowskiej rzeczywistości schyłku lat sześćdziesiątych. Narrator opowiada o swoich latach nauki i o fascynacji starszą od niego, piękną, tajemniczą kobietą, która uczyła go francuskiego i dała mu lekcję wolności. Jest to zarazem opowieść o potrzebie marzenia, a także rozrachunek z epoką peerelu. Tradycyjna narracja, nie pozbawiona wątku sensacyjnego, skrzy się humorem, oczarowuje i wzrusza.

Madame Ex

Après les maternités, les paternités difficiles, les révoltes adolescentes, les embarras conjugaux, voici le roman d’un divorce.

Publié par hasard au moment où s’amorce une révision de la loi, ce livre peut accessoirement lui fournir des arguments. Mais son thème n’est pas là. La procédure est une chose. L’état de divorcé(e) en est une autre qui — l’union par l’enfant restant indissoluble — dramatise souvent toute une vie. Aline, devenue Madame Ex, Louis remarié à Odile, leurs enfants divisés en Papiens et Mamiens, leurs parents, leurs amis, leurs avocats — intervenant sans cesse dans une guérilla où la rancune, l’intérêt, l’orgueil, le remords, le souvenir se mélangent — en fournissent ici un exemple tour à tour passionné et douloureux.

Madame Ex, par le ton, le trait, le mouvement, la précision du détail, est un roman typique d’Hervé Bazin et sans doute l’un des plus émouvants dans l’évocation de ce tragique quotidien où se meuvent comme nous ses personnages.

Madame Mao

Era todavía una niña cuando decidió desobedecer a su madre y liberarse de las vendas que iban a convertir sus pies en muñones, haciendo de ella una mujer deseable. Éste fue el primer acto de rebelión de la hija de una concubina, que acabaría siendo la última esposa de Mao Zedong.

Todos recuerdan a Madame Mao como la tirana cruel y ambiciosa que gobernó China después de la muerte de su marido, pero pocos saben qué tuvo que hacer para escalar los peldaños del poder y cuáles fueron sus armas de seducción. Actriz experta y siempre en busca del éxito, la mujer que encandiló a Mao y se encerró con él en la cueva de las colinas de Yenan se había propuesto desde muy joven entender la vida como una gran obra de teatro, donde ella estaba destinada a brillar como prima donna hasta el final del espectáculo. Cuando en mayo de 1991 Madame Mao decidió ella misma bajar el telón, quizá no hubo aplauso, pero una sensación extraña de reverencia y miedo recorrió el escenario…

Después de tres años de búsqueda y recopilación de datos, Anchee Min ha sido capaz de atar los cabos sueltos de este drama fascinante, y nos propone la biografía novelada de una de las mucheres más temidas y admiradas de la historia del siglo XX.

Madame Victoria

In 2001, a woman’s skeleton was found in the woods overlooking Montreal’s Royal Victoria Hospital. Despite an audit of the hospital’s patient records, a forensic reconstruction of the woman’s face, missing-person appeals, and DNA tests that revealed not only where she had lived, but how she ate, the woman was never identified. Assigned the name Madame Victoria, her remains were placed in a box in an evidence room and, eventually, forgotten.

But not by Catherine Leroux, who constructs in her form-bending Madame Victoria twelve different histories for the unknown woman. Like musical variations repeating a theme, each Victoria meets her end only after Leroux resurrects her, replacing the anonymous circumstances of her death with a vivid re-imagining of her possible lives. And in doing so, Madame Victoria becomes much more than the story of one unknown and unnamed woman: it becomes a celebration of the lives and legacies of unknown women everywhere.

By turns elegiac, playful, poignant, and tragic, Madame Victoria is an unforgettable book about the complexities of individual lives and the familiar ways in which they overlap.

Toby, onetime member of the Gods Gardeners and expert in mushrooms and bees, is still in love with street-smart Zeb, who has an interesting past. The Crakers’ reluctant prophet, Snowman-the-Jimmy, is hallucinating; Amanda is in shock from a Painballer attack; and Ivory Bill yearns for the provocative Swift Fox, who is flirting with Zeb. Meanwhile, giant Pigoons and malevolent Painballers threaten to attack.

With her enigmatic mentor, Jack, covering her back, Nadia unearths sinister clues that point to an increasingly darker and deadlier mystery.

Made to Break

Two days before New Years, a pack of five friends — three men and two women — head to a remote cabin near Lake Tahoe to celebrate the holidays. They've been buddies forever, banded together by scrapes and squalor, their relationships defined by these wild times.

After a car accident leaves one friend sick and dying, and severe weather traps them at the cabin, there is nowhere to go, forcing them to finally and ultimately take stock and confront their past transgressions, considering what they mean to one another and to themselves.

With some of the most luminous and purple prose flexed in recent memory, D. Foy is an incendiary new voice and Made to Break, a grand, episodic debut, redolent of the stark conscience of Denis Johnson and the spellbinding vision of Roberto Bolaño.

A commonplace book, arranging works of criticism looking at Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo with fragments of memoir/fiction. Presented first as random notes on watching Hitchcock, the fragments soon take up multiple narratives and threads and, like a classic Hitchcock movie, present competing realities. Fragments from a dizzying list of authors, from Truffaut to Philip K. Dick and Geoff Dyer to Bruno Schultz, are meticulously arranged in a fascinating, multilayered reading experience.

La «Préface», oeuvre à part entière, fait date dans l'histoire littéraire. Sur un ton enlevé, perfide et caustique, l'auteur attaque les bien-pensants, représentants de la tartufferie et de la censure, et ceux qui voudraient voir un côté «utile» dans une oeuvre littéraire, alors que l'art, par définition non assujetti à la morale ou à l'utilité, échappe à la notion de progrès pour ne s'allier qu'à celle du plaisir.

Le roman lui-même, en grande partie épistolaire, nous parle avant tout de l'Amour, du Sexe, de la Femme, de l'Homme, éternels sujets…

As Lena digs in to her investigation, all clues point to murder—and its connection to a string of grisly cold-case homicides that stretches back to the Soviet era. When another person in her circle falls victim, Lena fears she and her family may be next. She’s determined to do whatever it takes to protect them. But will learning the truth unmask a killer… or put her and her family in even more danger?
