Cat and Mouse
Penguin Books 1970
Cena: 0.90 €

|To compensate for his unusually large Adam’s apple—source of both discomfort and distress—fourteen year old Joachim Mahlke turns himself into athlete and ace diver. Soon he is known to his peers and his nation as “The Great Mahlke”. But to his enemies, he remains a target. He is different and doomed in a country scarred by the war.|
Cat and Mouse was first published in 1961, two years after Gunter Grass’ controversial and applauded masterpiece, The Tin Drum. Once again Grass turns his attention on Danzig. With a subtle blend of humour and power, Cat and Mouse ostensibly relates the rise of Mahlke from clown to hero. But Mahlke’s outlandish antics hide the darkness at the heart of a nation torn by Nazi violence, the war and its aftermath.

A Sentimental Journey

|A furiously witty response to Tobias Smollett s curmudgeonly Travels through France and Italy , Laurence Sterne s A Sentimental Journey through France and Italy became a hugely influential work of travel writing in its own right. This Penguin Classics edition includes an introduction and notes by Paul Goring.|
When Yorick, the roving narrator of Sterne s innovative final novel, sets off for France on a whim, he produces no ordinary travelogue. Jolting along in his coach from Calais, through Paris, and on towards the Italian border, the amiable parson is blithely unconcerned by famous views or monuments, but he engages us with tales of his encounters with all manner of people, from counts and noblewomen to beggars and chambermaids. And as drama piles upon drama, anecdote, flirtation and digression, Yorick s destination takes second place to an exhilarating voyage of emotional and erotic exploration. Interweaving sharp wit with warm humour and irony with genuine feeling, A Sentimental Journey paints a captivating picture of an Englishman s adventures abroad.

The World According to Clarkson

|Jeremy Clarkson shares his opinions on just about everything in The World According to Clarkson.|
Jeremy Clarkson has seen rather more of the world than most. He has, as they say, been around a bit. And as a result, he s got one or two things to tell us about how it all works, and being Jeremy Clarkson he s not about to voice them quietly, humbly and without great dollops of humour.
In The World According to Clarkson, he reveals why it is that:
Too much science is bad for our health
70s rock music is nothing to be ashamed of
Hunting foxes while drunk and wearing night-sights is neither big nor clever
We must work harder to get rid of cricket
He likes the Germans (well, sometimes)
With a strong dose of common sense that is rarely, if ever, found inside the M25, Clarkson hilariously attacks the pompous, the ridiculous, the absurd and the downright idiotic, whilst also celebrating the eccentric, the clever and the sheer bloody brilliant.
Less a manifesto for living and more a road map to modern life, The World According to Clarkson is the funniest book you ll read this year. Don t leave home without it.
The World According to Clarkson is a hilarious collection of Jeremy s Sunday Times columns and the first in his The World According to Clarkson series which also includes And Another Thing, For Crying Out Loud! and How Hard Can It Be?
Brilliant, laugh-out-loud Daily Telegraph
Outrageously funny . . . will have you in stitches Time Out

|Purple Cow was the #1 bestselling marketing book on Amazon in 2003. Now in Free Prize Inside, Seth Godin is back with practical advice on how to put Purple Cow thinking to work inside your organization (big or small, profit or non) to MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN. The next big marketing idea is a proven strategy for making your products or services so remarkable that they practically sell themselves.|
Purple Cow taught marketers the value of standing out from the herd, which is how companies like Krispy Kreme and JetBlue made it big. But it left readers hungry for more: How do you actually think up new Purple Cows? And how do you get them adopted by risk-averse Brown Cow companies?
Free Prize Inside delivers those answers and much more. It’s a fun guide to doing innovative marketing that really works when the traditional approaches have all stopped working. Thirty years ago, the best way to sell something was to advertise it on television. But today’s consumers are cynical, and your product or service had better be more than just hype and clever advertising. Even better, it ought to come with a market-changing innovation—a free prize inside.
You don’t have to spend a fortune to create something cool that virtually sells itself. Think of simple but powerful innovations like the Tupperware party, Flintstones vitamins, G.I. Joe (a doll just for boys), Lucille Roberts (a gym just for women), and frequent flier miles. Free Prize Inside will teach you how to create those kinds of blockbusters at your own company without a bunch of MBA-brainwashed marketers. You don’t have to be a genius—you just need curiosity, initiative, and a strategy for overcoming resistance when you champion your idea.
We’re all marketers now, no matter what our job titles. With Godin’s help, we can find the free prize that will transform our companies.

Killing me Softly
Penguin Books 2008
Cena: 2.90 €

|Following the success of The Memory Game, Killing Me Softly is Nicci French s third novel--a genuinely compelling, often compulsive, study of love and violence. French is prepared to risk romantic fantasy: the chance encounter with a beautiful man in the street:--"He was wearing black jeans and a black leather jacket, and then I looked up at his face"- -who draws Alice, the narrator, away from her lover and her life. " ‘Please ," he said then, still not taking his eyes off my face. ‘Will you come with me? " Adam Tallis is a hero: a sexual hero, certainly, but also a man--a climber--who has saved lives. Or has he? Told in continuous flashback, we know from the start of this novel that something has gone wrong, but what, why and who will remain in question. Adam is a seducer--a dangerous one--and French uses him to explore the devastation of requited love (what happens to a modern woman if she does marry an ideal?). But just how dangerous he is, who is threatened most by this passion, is part of the puzzle and intelligence of this book, right up to, and beyond, its remarkable conclusion.-- Vicky Lebeau --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.|
