The Complete Fairy Tales and Stories

The Complete Fairy Tales and Stories

Description: Translated by Erik Hougaard, this is the only version available in trade paperback that presents the fairy tales exactly as Andersen collected them in the original Danish edition in 1874.
Hans Christian Andersen is one of the immortals of world literature. The fairy tales he wrote, such as "The Snow Queen," "The Ugly Duckling," "The Red Shoes," and "The Nightingale," are remarkable for their sense of fantasy, power of description, and acute sensitivity, and they are like no others written before or since. Unlike the Brothers Grimm, who collected and retold folklore, Andersen adopted the most ancient literary forms of the fairy tale and the folktale and distilled them into a genre that was uniquely his own.
In preparing this first English translation of the complete fairy tales and stories as collected and told by Andersen, Erik Haugaard has scrupulously followed the text and the order of the stories in the or original Danish edition of 1874. Recognizing the literary merit of Andersen's own simple colloquial language, which Victorian translators and their imitators very often altered to sentimentalize or vulgarize, Haugaard has remained faithful to the original text. This edition includes Andersen's own notes to his stories. As Virginia Haviland comments in her Foreword, "This new work, in its fresh and authentic transmission, and with Andersen's notes accompanying the translation, is offered as a contribution to the history of a literature that belongs to every age."

The Forsyte saga

The Forsyte saga

Description: The three novels that make up The Forsyte Saga chronicle the ebbing social power of the commercial upper-middle class Forsyte family through three generations, beginning in Victorian London during the 1880s and ending in the early 1920s. Galsworthy's masterly narrative examines not only their fortunes but also the wider developments within society, particularly the changing position of women.
The Forsyte Saga is a sequence of novels comprising The Man of Property (1906), In Chancery (1920), and To Let (1921) with two interludes, "Indian Summer of a Forsyte" (1918) and "Awakening", published together in 1922. The saga begins with Soames Forsyte, a successful solicitor who buys land at Robin Hill on which to build a house for his wife Irene and future family. Eventually, the Forsyte family begins to disintegrate when Timothy Forsyte, the last of the old generation, dies at the age of 100. In these novels, John Galsworthy documented a departed way of life, that of the affluent middle class that ruled England before the 1914 war. The class is criticized on account of its possessiveness, but there is also nostalgia because Galsworthy, as a man born into the class, could also appreciate its virtues.

Lobbyisten

Description: Det är 2014 och tre veckor före valet. Partiallianserna och deras lobbyister utnyttjar media för att till fullo smutskasta varandra. Sifosiffrorna visar på framgångar och motgångar för de olika politiska lägren och ingen drar sig för att ta till okonventionella metoder. Minst sagt.
I den tredje och avslutande delen av Thomas Bodströms deckare trappas tempot upp och det politiska spelet är mer cyniskt och våldsamt än någonsin. En spännnande och satirisk skildring av hur långt man kan sträcka sig för att vara trogen sitt parti. Det finns de som av djupt personliga skäl är beredda att gå hur långt som helst.

Die Entdeckung der Currywurst

Description: In Erinnerung an seine Kindheit macht sich der Erzähler auf die Suche nach der ehemaligen Besitzerin einer Imbissbude am Hamburger Großneumarkt. Er findet die hochbetagte Lena Brücker in einem Altersheim und erfährt die Geschichte ihrer 'schönsten Jahre' und wie es zur Entdeckung der Currywurst kam. Der Bogen spannt sich weit zurück in die letzten Apriltage des Jahres 1945 ... 'Uwe Timm gestaltet eine ebenso groteske wie rührende, phantastische wie im konkreten Alltag verwurzelte Liebesgeschichte ... Er schafft auf geradezu artistische Weise ein weitverzweigtes, raffiniert montiertes und außerordentlich vergnüglich zu lesendes literarisches Kunststück.' Detlef Grumbach in der 'Woche'
