The death and burial of Addie Bundren is told by members of her family, as they cart the coffin to Jefferson, Mississippi, to bury her among her people. And as the intense desires, fears and rivalries of the family are revealed in the vernacular of the Deep South, Faulkner presents a portrait of extraordinary power - as epic as the Old Testament, as American as Huckleberry Finn.

THE ORIGINAL AND BEST TRANSLATION BY MICHAEL GLENNY 50th Anniversary Edition Afterwards, when it was frankly too late, descriptions were issued of the man: expensive grey suit, grey beret, one green eye and the other black. He arrives in Moscow one hot summer afternoon with various alarming accomplices, including a demonic, fast-talking black cat. When he leaves, the asylums are full and the forces of law and order are in disarray. Only the Master, a man devoted to truth, and Margarita, the woman he loves, can resist the devil’s onslaught. Brilliant and blackly comic, The Master and Margarita was repressed by Stalin’s authorities and only published after the author’s death. The Vintage Classic Russians Series: Published for the 100th anniversary of the 1917 Russian Revolution, these are must-have, beautifully designed editions of six epic masterpieces that have survived controversy, censorship and suppression to influence decades of thought and artistic expression.

The publication of Robinson Crusoe in London in 1719 marked the arrival of a revolutionary art form: the novel. British writers were prominent in shaping the new type of storytelling - one which reflected the experiences of ordinary people, with characters in whom readers could find not only an escape, but a deeper understanding of their own lives. But the novel was more than just a reflection of British life. As Sebastian Faulks explains in this engaging literary and social history, it also helped invent the British. By focusing not on writers but on the people they gave us, Faulks not only celebrates the recently neglected act of novelistic creation baplaudsut shows how the most enduring fictional characters over the centuries have helped map the British psyche. In this ebook, Sebastian celebrates the greatest heroes in fiction - from Tom Jones to Sherlock Holmes. Also included are three classic novels: Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe: The legendary story of a shipwreck on a desert island. Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray: The story of a young woman's spectacular rise and fall as she gambles, manipulates and seduces her way through high society and the Napoleonic wars. The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle: Sherlock Holmes' most famous case as he uncovers the truth behind the terrifying legend of a supernatural hound which preys upon the cursed Baskerville family.

“I’m a failed poet. Maybe every novelist wants to write poetry first, finds he can’t and then tries the short story which is the most demanding form after poetry. And failing that, only then does he take up novel writing.” —William Faulkner Winner of the National Book Award Forty-two stories make up this magisterial collection by the writer who stands at the pinnacle of modern American fiction. Compressing an epic expanse of vision into hard and wounding narratives, Faulkner’s stories evoke the intimate textures of place, the deep strata of history and legend, and all the fear, brutality, and tenderness of the human condition. These tales are set not only in Yoknapatawpha County, but in Beverly Hills and in France during World War I. They are populated by such characters as the Faulknerian archetypes Flem Snopes and Quentin Compson, as well as by ordinary men and women who emerge so sharply and indelibly in these pages that they dwarf the protagonists of most novels. From the Trade Paperback edition.

«Manhattan Transfer» gehört zu den großen revolutionären Romanen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Durch eine Fülle von Schauplätzen und Charakteren lässt Dos Passos ein schillerndes Porträt des urbanen New Yorker Dschungels entstehen, in dem das Jagdfieber wütet: nach Arbeit, Glück und Macht. Die Figuren des Romans – ein junger Einwanderer, ein Gewerkschaftsführer, ein Mörder, ein Karrierist, eine nach Selbständigkeit strebende Frau, ein sensibler Alkoholiker und andere – scheinen aus der unbestimmbar großen Masse der Stadtbewohner herausgerissen, um irgendwann wieder in ihrem Gewühl unterzugehen. Der eigentliche Protagonist des Romans ist jedoch die Großstadt New York von den frühen Jahren des 20. Jahrhunderts bis nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg – eine immense, scheinbar anarchische Macht, der alle ausgeliefert sind. Der Roman ist panoramisch, filmisch, eine beeindruckende Collage modernen Lebens, voller Episoden und Brüche. Dos Passos’ Kamerablick setzt das Dokumentarische neben das Erleben seiner fiktiven Figuren; er verfolgt sie durch das Dickicht der Stadt, überlässt es jedoch dem Leser, seine Schlüsse aus ihrem Lebenskampf zu ziehen. Nach Erscheinen dieses Romans rückte Dos Passos mit einem Schlag in die Riege der wichtigsten Autoren des 20. Jahrhunderts. In ihm vermischen sich der Naturalismus eines Theodore Dreiser und der Modernismus eines James Joyce zu einem vibrierenden, atemlos rhythmischen Stil, der bis heute nichts von seiner schillernden Farbigkeit und leuchtenden Intensität eingebüßt hat. Zahlreiche Autoren nahmen sich Dos Passos weltweit zum Vorbild, unter anderem übte er maßgeblichen Einfluss auf Alfred Döblins berühmten Roman «Berlin Alexanderplatz» aus. Die vorliegende Neuübersetzung stammt von dem renommierten Literaturübersetzer Dirk van Gunsteren (Thomas Pynchon, Philip Roth, T.C. Boyle) und ersetzt die aus dem Jahr 1966 stammende von Paul Baudisch. Sie ist mit einem Nachwort von Clemens Meyer (bekannt durch seinen ebenfalls Dos Passos verpflichteten großen Leipzig-Roman «Im Stein») versehen.

Manhattan 1936, East Side. Don Birnam trinkt. Und der Schriftsteller hat längst jenen Punkt erreicht, an dem »ein Drink zu viel ist und hundert nicht genügen«. Seit dem letzten Absturz kaum wieder auf den Beinen, widersetzt er sich erfolgreich allen Versuchen seines Bruders Wick, ihn zu einem langen Wochenende auf dem Land zu überreden, und bleibt fünf Tage in der gemeinsamen Wohnung allein. Dort nimmt das Schicksal seinen Lauf: Don trinkt, beschafft sich Geld, verliert es, besorgt sich neues, landet auf der Alkoholstation, trinkt weiter. Schwankend zwischen Euphorie und Verzweiflung, Selbsterkenntnis und Selbsttäuschung, Inspiration und Panik, glasklarem Denken und tiefer Umnachtung, fällt Don zunehmend ins Delirium.
