Or you may find the afterlife contains only those people whom you remember. In some afterlives you are split into all your different ages, in some you are recreated based on your credit card records, and in others you are forced to live with annoying versions of yourself that represent what you could have been.In these wonderfully imagined tales - at once funny, wistful and unsettling - Eagleman kicks over the chessboard of traditional notions and offers us a dazzling lens through which to see ourselves here and now. His stories are rooted in science and romance and awe at our mysterious existence: a mixture of hope, love and death that cuts through human nature at innovative angles. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=122038 Wed, 23 April 2014 06:19:47 America/Los_Angeles Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=122022 This collection of sharply observed animal-themed tales is a delight, told with David Sedaris's trademark blend of hilarity and goodnaturedness. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of our own everyday interactions.In 'The Toad, the Turtle, and the Duck', three strangers commiserate about animal bureaucracy while waiting in a complaint line. In 'Hello Kitty', a cynical feline struggles to sit through his prison-mandated AA meetings. In 'The Squirrel and the Chipmunk', a pair of star-crossed lovers is separated by prejudiced family members. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=122022 Wed, 23 April 2014 05:15:40 America/Los_Angeles The Hill Road http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=121698 The townland of Kilroan in the 1970s is at risk of being trapped for ever in an earlier version of itself, a time when shell-shocked soldiers returned from the trenches, and convent orphans could be billeted as servants on poor farmers; a time when a glamorous Irish American finds her liberated ways mean flirting is flirting with death, and a chance meeting on a train means the postman's widow must face her past. Patrick O'Keeffe's Ireland is a precarious world, but it is also a place of natural beauty, of laughter, of family closeness, a place where stories can change lives. These four unforgettable novellas mark the emergence of an original and exciting new voice. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=121698 Wed, 16 April 2014 07:39:48 America/Los_Angeles The Quiet of the Birds http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=121533 [Nisha] Da Cunha Treads Gently Along The Paths Of The Human Heart -Illustrated Weekly Of IndiaNisha Da Cunha Is Widely Regarded As One Of India S Finest Short Story Writers.

Each character is bent to a pulse, propelled on by success and loss, by new beginnings and endings. In 'East Wind' a divorced estate agent falls in love with a European waitress, but is tempted, despite his happiness, to investigate her past; in 'The Limner' a deaf painter discovers his patron's likeness after spending time among his staff. Anchored off the coast of Brazil, Garibaldi spies his future wife through a telescope, and in 'Marriage Lines', a widower returns to a remote Scottish Island to relive a favourite holiday. These are also lives in flux - in the 'stages, transitions, arguments; incompatibilities which grow' - as in the title story, where a man reflects on the break-up of his marriage, brought into new perspective by the actions of his parents; two writers, a 'good team', return from an event rehearsing familiar arguments; in 'Gardener's World', a couple bond, fall out and bond again over flowers and vegetable patches. Positioned in between are a series of evenings at 'Phil and Joanna's', where among the topics of conversation u the environment, politics, the Britishness of marmalade, toilet graffiti and the perils of smoking u we witness the guests' lives shift in sections over the course of a year. Ranging from the domestic to the extraordinary, from the vineyards of Italy to the English seaside in winter, the stories in Pulse resonate and spark, each imbued with the humour, poignancy and perception that marks all Julian Barnes' work. This is an imaginative and expertly-constructed new collection from a master of the form. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=121165 Tue, 08 April 2014 05:25:49 America/Los_Angeles Presence http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=121152 In his lifetime the great American playwright Arthur Miller published two highly regarded collections of stories, I Don't Need You Any More(1967) and Homely Girl, a Life(1995). Shortly after his death in 2005 a final collection, Presence(2007), appeared. Now, all eighteen of these stories are gathered together in one volume for the first time, including the six from Presence, previously only published in the USA. In his plays Miller took on the big themes of the day, putting stories of the Depression, wartime deceit and the McCarthy era on stage with an energy and passion not seen before and rarely since. In these stories he turns his attention to smaller, more intimate themes, yet still brings to bear the profound insight, humanism, empathy and wit of his work for the theatre. Including the early, O. Henry Award-winning 'I Don't Need You Anymore', the original story of 'The Misfits' on which the film was based, and the beautiful late story ' Presence', this collection offers a fresh perspective on the great writer and his work, here informed by an unusual sensuality and delicacy. When Homely Girl, a Lifewas published in America the critic for the New York Times wrote of those three stories: 'The ability to sum up in clear, unequivocal prose the essence of emotion, a situation, a theme - characteristic of Mr Miller's best writing - makes the reader wish that these stories were longer, and that there were more of them.' At last there are. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=121152 Tue, 08 April 2014 04:49:17 America/Los_Angeles The Turning: Stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=120744 In these extraordinary tales about ordinary people from ordinary places, Tim Winton describes turnings of all kinds: second thoughts, changes of heart, nasty surprises, slow awakenings, abrupt transitions. The seventeen stories overlap to paint a convincing and cohesive picture of a world where people struggle against the terrible weight of their past and challenge the lives they have made for themselves. 'Always a writer of crystalline prose, his lines of sinewy leanness achieve such clarity here that it seems one is reading line after line of perfect music . . . To read Winton is to be reminded not just of the possibilities of fiction but of the human heart' "The Times " 'The laureate of Western Australia is back . . . this is like Carver, happily with a very large dose of Winton' "Time Out " 'These stories are threaded through with subtleties and oblique connections; to be fully appreciated, they need to be read more than once. But Winton's writing -vigorous, vivid, precise - is so good that you'd want to do that anyway' "Sunday Times" http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=120744 Mon, 31 March 2014 23:58:59 America/Los_Angeles Innocent Eréndira and Other Stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=120646 This collection of fiction, representing some of García Márquez's earlier work, includes eleven short stories and a novella, Innocent Eréndira, in which a young girl who dreams of freedom cannot escape the reach of her vicious and avaricious grandmother. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=120646 Sun, 30 March 2014 22:51:11 America/Los_Angeles Life Times: Stories, 1952-2007 http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=119798 Throughout her career the internationally renowned South African writer Nadine Gordimer has built a literary reputation with her incisive short stories as much as with her acclaimed novels. Together with her essays, this highly imaginative and committed body of work won her the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1991. In the opinion of the Academy: 'Through her magnificent epic writing she has - in the words of Alfred Nobel - been of very great benefit to humanity.' Gordimer has said that while novelists take the reader by the hand developing 'a consistency of relationship that does not and cannot convey the quality of human life, where contact is more like the flash of fireflies, in and out, now here, now there, in darkness. Short-story writers see by the light of the flash; theirs is the only thing one can be sure of - the present moment.' Now, for the first time, the best of her stories are published in one volume. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=119798 Sun, 09 March 2014 22:10:22 America/Los_Angeles Labyrinths http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=119778 Jorge Luis Borges's Labyrinths is a collection of short stories and essays showcasing one of Latin America's most influential and imaginative writers. This Penguin Modern Classics edition is edited by Donald A. Yates and James E. Irby, with an introduction by James E. Irby and a preface by Andr� Maurois. Jorge Luis Borges was a literary spellbinder whose tales of magic, mystery and murder are shot through with deep philosophical paradoxes. This collection brings together many of his stories, including the celebrated 'Library of Babel', whose infinite shelves contain every book that could ever exist, 'Funes the Memorious' the tale of a man fated never to forget a single detail of his life, and 'Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote', in which a French poet makes it his life's work to create an identical copy of Don Quixote. In later life, dogged by increasing blindness, Borges used essays and brief tantalising parables to explore the enigma of time, identity and imagination. Playful and disturbing, scholarly and seductive, his is a haunting and utterly distinctive voice. Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. A poet, critic and short story writer, he received numerous awards for his work including the 1961 International Publisher's Prize (shared with Samuel Beckett). He has a reasonable claim, along with Kafka and Joyce, to be one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century. If you enjoyed Labyrinths, you might like Franz Kafka's Metamorphosis and Other Stories, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.

What could go wrong when a wife pawns the mink coat that her lover gave her as a parting gift? What happens when a priceless piece of furniture is the subject of a deceitful bargain? Can a wronged woman take revenge on her dead husband?In these dark, disturbing stories Roald Dahl explores the sinister side of human nature: the cunning, sly, selfish part of each of us that leads us into the territory of the unexpected and unsettling. Stylish, macabre and haunting, these tales will leave you with a delicious feeling of unease.'Roald Dahl is one of the few writers I know whose work can accurately be described as addictive' Irish TimesRoald Dahl, the brilliant and worldwide acclaimed author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Matilda, and many more classics for children, also wrote scores of short stories for adults. These delightfully disturbing tales have often been filmed and were most recently the inspiration for the West End play, Roald Dahl's Twisted Tales by Jeremy Dyson. Roald Dahl's stories continue to make readers shiver today. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=119770 Sat, 08 March 2014 05:44:23 America/Los_Angeles Granta 114: Aliens http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=118331 This new issue of Granta features tales from the constantly shifting terrain of alien culture.

For business leaders and public figures in any arena, The Speed of Trust offers an unprecedented and eminently practical look at exactly how trust functions in our every transaction and relationship�from the most personal to the broadest, most indirect interaction�and how to establish trust immediately so that you and your organization can forego the time�killing, bureaucratic check�and�balance processes so often deployed in lieu of actual trust. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=117750 Tue, 04 February 2014 06:52:39 America/Los_Angeles Dear Life http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=117680 In this new and brilliant collection, Munro once more explores the lives of various inhabitants of the countryside and towns around Lake Huron.

True life tales of lottery winners and losers http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=91622 Money. Gobs of it. In the blink of an eye - or the drop of a ball� it's all yours. Everyone dreams about striking it rich by winning a lottery. We all feverishly line up to purchase our tickets, and watch TV or scan the newspapers to see if we have won, even though the odds are better that we will be struck by lightning. Still, we perservere, because no matter what else happens this week, you can be sure that someone, somewhere, will win the big one. Lotteries are an unparalleled popular phenomenon. But what happens after the winners are revealed, and the checks have been issued? How does winning a lottery change one's life? Luck of the Drawprofiles past winners of big lotteries, and how their windfall impacted their lives, mostly for the better, but interestingly sometimes for the worse, such was the case of a Florida widow who won $5 million in 1984; three years later, she lost her mansion and fancy cars, and owed the IRS $500,000 for back taxes. Eventually she was arrested for trying to hire a contract killer to take out her daughter-in-law, whom she blamed for her lottery misfortune. The book also depicts the past, present and future of lotteries in North America and the world over, and includes a special chapter on the revived phenomenon of big-time TV game show winners. Who wants to be a millionaire? Seemingly, everyone. In a country where eighty percent of adults have played a lottery, creating a multi-billion dollar industry, Luck of the Drawis an insightful inside look at lotteries, its winners, and its losers. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=91622 Fri, 24 August 2012 07:57:09 America/Los_Angeles Picking up gold and silver http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=91490 a selection of Kipling's short stories. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=91490 Fri, 17 August 2012 04:48:45 America/Los_Angeles The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=91073 Robert Louis Stevenson originally wrote "Dr. Jekyll And Mr Hyde" as a "chilling shocker." He then burned the draft and, upon his wife's advice, rewrote it as the darkly complex tale it is today. Stark, skillfully woven, this fascinating novel explores the curious turnings of human character through the strange case of Dr. Jekyll, a kindly scientist who by night takes on his stunted evil self, Mr. Hyde. Anticipating modern psychology, "Jekyll And Hyde" is a brilliantly original study of man's dual nature -- as well as an immortal tale of suspense and terror. Published in 1866, "Jekyll And Hyde" was an instant success and brought Stevenson his first taste of fame. Though sometimes dismissed as a mere mystery story, the book has evoked much literary admirations. Vladimir Nabokov likened it to "Madame Bovary" and "Dead Souls" as "a fable that lies nearer to poetry than to ordinary prose fiction." http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=91073 Tue, 07 August 2012 04:23:07 America/Los_Angeles The Best of Saki http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=91045 Short stories set in England before the Great War featuring characters famed for their acid wit, black humour, infinite mischief and exquisite bad taste. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=91045 Tue, 07 August 2012 01:01:42 America/Los_Angeles New Worlds 3 http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=91009 The third issue of the nineties' incarnation of Britain's most celebrated science fiction magazine which aims to publish the most innovative and original stories by new and well-known writers from all over the world.

Testing chemicals in his lab, he drinks a mixture he hopes will isolate--and eliminate--human evil. Instead it unleashes the dark forces within him, transforming him into the hideous and murderous Mr. Hyde. "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde dramatically brings to life a science-fiction case study of the nature of good and evil and the duality that can exist within one person. Resonant with psychological perception and ethical insight, the book has literary roots in Dostoevsky's "The Double" and "Crime and Punishment. Today Stevenson's novella is recognized as an incisive study of Victorian morality and sexual repression, as well as a great thriller. This collection also includes some of the author's grimmest short fiction: "Lodging for the Night," "The Suicide Club," "Thrawn Janet," "The Body Snatcher," and "Markheim." http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=89256 Mon, 09 July 2012 06:21:29 America/Los_Angeles The open door and other ghost stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=88727 . http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=88727 Wed, 04 July 2012 00:38:01 America/Los_Angeles Women and ghosts http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=88646 A series of ghost stories whose central characters are women, including a woman about to marry who is haunted by the depressed spirit of the man's first wife; a secretary on a diet who begins to see fat people everywhere; and a woman whose dead fiance appears to her whenever she kisses another man. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=88646 Mon, 02 July 2012 03:57:21 America/Los_Angeles Cast a cold eye http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=88548 The seven stories collected here showcase McCarthy's formidable powers of observation, her deliciously witty writing style, and her celebrated talent for dissecting characters with biting acuity.

Throughout the collection, Annie Proulx invests these stories with an intelligence and black humour that transforms them into something new and surprising. In one story, a slight young man defies his mother's insults to become a rodeo star, while in another, an octogenarian finds himself drawn back to the ranch that he quit decades before -- against his better judgement. Elsewhere, Proulx demonstrates her taste for the macabre in a grisly tale of bad weather, gambling and amputation set a hundred years ago. Inventive, compassionate and wildly funny, these marvellous stories explore the unbreakable bond between a people and their land. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=88282 Wed, 27 June 2012 03:54:39 America/Los_Angeles Closing the sea http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=88197 A collection of short stories by the author of The Closing Sea features the story of two cousins discovering sex and love as they plan the murder of their uncle, a young waitress swept off her feet by an aging film director, and others. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=88197 Wed, 27 June 2012 00:50:12 America/Los_Angeles Harrap Book of Modern Short Stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=88045 . http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=88045 Mon, 25 June 2012 03:46:32 America/Los_Angeles glitter train winter 2006 issue 57 http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=87846 short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=87846 Fri, 22 June 2012 01:50:25 America/Los_Angeles The killing bottle http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=87606 Gathers twelve stories by Elizabeth Bowen, Joyce Cary, Graham Green, Somerset Maugham, Frank O'Connor, V.

The earliest stories are Rebecca Harding Davis' naturalistic "Life in the Iron Mills" (published in 1861 and predating Imile Zola's "Germinal" by almost 25 years) and Louisa May Alcott's semiautobiographical tale "Transcendental Wild Oats" (1873). The most recent ones are Zora Neals Hurston's "Sweat," an ironic tale of a failed marriage, published in 1926, and "Sanctuary" (1930), Nella Larsen's gripping and controversial tale of contested loyalty. In between is a grand cavalcade of superbly crafted fiction by Sarah Orne Jewett, Mary E. Wilkins Freeman, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Kate Chopin, Willa Cather, Alice Dunbar-Nelson, Djuna Barnes, Susan Glaspell and Edith Wharton. Brief biographies of each of the writers are included. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=85683 Sun, 27 May 2012 18:46:03 America/Los_Angeles Naked City http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=85460 Latest title in a short fiction series (Route # 15). Contains stories set in the redeveloped provincial UK cities and include a photographic section of city environments populated by naked people. It is the best in new writing of contemporary slices of life. At the heart of the modern city we find stories of lovers, stories of people with a desire to connect to someone else, something else. This collection reveals the experience of living through changing times, of people shaking the past and dreaming of better days, people finding their place, adapting to new surroundings, laughing and forgetting, living and loving in the grip of the city. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=85460 Thu, 24 May 2012 02:55:18 America/Los_Angeles The Oxford book of sea stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=85425 "Already I looked with other eyes upon the sea. I knew it capable of betraying the generous ardor of youth as implacably as, indifferent to good and evil, it would have betrayed the basest greed and the noblest heroism. And I looked upon the true sea--the sea that plays with men till their hearts are broken, and wears stout ships to death." With this moment of realization, Joseph Conrad closes the story "Initiation"--and initiates us into the "true sea" at the heart of the twenty-seven tales in The Oxford Book of the Sea. Malevolent, mysterious, vast, the ocean waters have always sparked our fascination and sense of adventure, giving rise to a remarkable vein of narrative deftly mined here by editor Tony Tanner. In story after story, masters of the art tell of men on ship, grappling with themselves, their fellow sailors, and the trials of the sea: from hurricane winds to the frustrating calm, from swirling currents to rampaging whales. Here is the work of Jack London, Rudyard Kipling, Stephen Crane, C.S. Forester, Ernest Hemingway, and of course Conrad (whose classic The Secret Sharer appears as well). Along with the essential stories come unexpected gems by writers not known for their seafaring bent: William Faulkner ("Turnabout"), F. Scott Fitzgerald ("The Rough Crossing"), E.M. Forster ("The Story of the Siren"), and Edgar Allan Poe ("A Descent into the Maelstrom"). As with any fine Oxford anthology, The Oxford Book of Sea Stories includes a few surprises as well. In "Mocha Dick," J.N. Reynolds tells of an exciting hunt for a dangerous white whale--a story that predates Moby-Dick by twelve years (Tanner also includes the conclusion of the chase from Melville's classic). And "The Frontiers of the Sea," by actor Peter Ustinov, provides a fitting conclusion to the collection. Some of the finest writers in the English language have been drawn to the subject of life at sea, with its dangers, loneliness, and triumphs. The Oxford Book of the Sea gathers together some of the best examples of the form, offering moving prose, fascinating insight into the human condition, and the simple pleasure of tales of high adventure. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=85425 Wed, 23 May 2012 23:55:02 America/Los_Angeles The gathering bunker http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=85100 This is a collection of golfing stories, narrated by the fictional character Jim South.

This is the first fiction anthology in more than three decades from the magazine that has defined the American short story for almost a century. As noteworthy for its range as for its excellence, Nothing But You features a stunning array of present and past masters writing about love in all its varieties, from the classic love story to dislocated narratives of weird modern romance. Taken separately, these stories suggest the infinite variety of the human heart. Taken together, they are a literary milestone, a comprehensive review of the way we live and love now. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=84892 Thu, 17 May 2012 06:27:01 America/Los_Angeles Storia http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=84886 best contemporary short stories by women from britain http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=84886 Thu, 17 May 2012 06:15:44 America/Los_Angeles The lipstick circus http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=84108 . http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=84108 Mon, 07 May 2012 03:47:02 America/Los_Angeles True Sea Stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=84097 . http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=84097 Mon, 07 May 2012 03:25:43 America/Los_Angeles Life's Like That http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=83660 An anthology of private memory, including Lynn Barber on her close encounter with bigamy, Zoe Heller on her father's lovers, and Simon Gray on absent friends.

The settings range from nineteenth-century Sweden and Russia to a suburban 'Barnet Shop', where the narrator measure out his life in haircuts, and a South Bank concert hall where a music lover carries out an obsessive campaign of revenge against those who cough in concerts. In 'Knowing French' a fiercely independent eighty-year old begins a correspondence with an author - 'Dear Dr Barnes' - that enriches both their lives. A woman reads elaborate recipes to her sick husband in 'Appetite'; a retired soldier in 'Hygiene' makes his annual trip to attend a regimental dinner, run errands for his wife and spend the afternoon with a tart called Babs. In a collection that is wise and funny, clever and moving, Julian Barnes has created characters who passions and longings are made all the stronger by the knowledge that, for them, time is almost at an end. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=83157 Mon, 30 April 2012 02:58:25 America/Los_Angeles Mirrors http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=83099 short stories from prize winning authors http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=83099 Mon, 30 April 2012 01:50:45 America/Los_Angeles No Place Like http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=83095 fict http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=83095 Mon, 30 April 2012 01:39:57 America/Los_Angeles Nursing stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=82932 . http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=82932 Sat, 28 April 2012 06:37:55 America/Los_Angeles Little Book of Celtic Myths http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=82917 . http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=82917 Sat, 28 April 2012 05:30:42 America/Los_Angeles Morse's Greatest Mystery and Other Stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=82689 Contains 10 mysteries including two Inspector Morse stories written especially for this anthology.

Set in contemporary Thailand, these stories are generous, radiant tales of family bonds, youthful romance, generational conflicts, and cultural shiftings beneath the glossy surface of a warm, Edenic setting. The stories in Sightseeing present a nation far removed from its exoticized stereotypes.In the prizewinning opening story, "Farangs," the son of a beachside motel owner commits the cardinal sin of falling for a pretty tourist, and the confrontation that ensues between the native boy and the girl's American boyfriend culminates wondrously amid flying mangoes and Clint Eastwood - a pet pig - swimming out to sea. In "Sightseeing," the much-anticipated holiday of a young man about to leave for college and his loving and fiercely independent mother becomes a different kind of pilgrimage altogether when they are forced to confront the mother's impending blindness. The concluding novella, "Cockfighter," is "an astonishing coming-of-ager" (Kirkus Reviews), in which a young girl witnesses her proud father's valiant but foolhardy battle against a local delinquent whose family's vicious stranglehold on the villagers has passed down unchecked through generations. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=81712 Tue, 17 April 2012 19:07:29 America/Los_Angeles The Collected Short Stories [of] D.H.

For each volume, a series editor reads pieces from hundreds of periodicals, then selects between fifty and a hundred outstanding works. That selection is pared down to twenty or so very best pieces by a guest editor who is widely recognized as a leading writer in his or her field. This unique system has helped make the Best American series the most respected -- and most popular -- of its kind. Lending a fresh perspective to a perennial favorite, Walter Mosley has chosen unforgettable short stories by both renowned writers and exciting newcomers. The Best American Short Stories 2003 features poignant tales that explore the nuances of family life and love, birth and death. Here are stories that will, as Mosley writes in his introduction, "live with the reader long after the words have been translated into ideas and dreams. That's because a good short story crosses the borders of our nations and our prejudices and our beliefs."Dorothy Allison Edwidge Danticat E. L.

In her introduction Lorrie Moore writes, "The stories collected here impressed me with their depth of knowledge and feeling of character, setting, and situation . . . They spoke with amused intelligence, compassion, and dispassion." http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=66272 Fri, 30 December 2011 05:28:47 America/Los_Angeles The Oxford book of short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=66270 Only V.S. Pritchett, one of the most distinguished living writers of short stories in English, could tackle the daunting task of compiling a short story anthology, a project that entails displaying in a single volume the wealth and variety of an art that spans over 200 years and has evolved out of many divergent literary traditions. Accepting the challenge, Pritchett has chosen over forty stories written in the English language during the period between the early nineteenth century and the present day. Since the time of Sir Walter Scott, Edgar Allan Poe, and Nathaniel Hawthorne, Great Britain, America, and especially Ireland have developed great traditions of short-story writing, which Ernest Hemingway, D.H. Lawrence, Somerset Maugham, John Updike, and V.S. Pritchett himself have perpetuated in this century. Demonstrating the full range of invention and ability within the genre, Pritchett includes a sampling of stories by such Irish masters as James Joyce, Frank O'Connor, and Liam O'Flaherty, as well as stories by Canadian, Indian, New Zealand, and Australian writers. In the Introduction, Pritchett stresses that the collection does not necessarily contain "the best" short stories. Instead, he has chosen these stories based on his own personal tastes seasoned by "seventy years of passionate addiction to the short story and fifty years as a fellow writer" in the art. Rejecting over-anthologized stories in favor of ones previously overlooked, Pritchett brings together some of the most original examples of this changing art. In this way, The New Oxford Book of Short Stories bears witness to the talent of the past and the talent that continues to flourish. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=66270 Fri, 30 December 2011 05:25:19 America/Los_Angeles Lost in the funhouse http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=66264 Barth's lively, highly original collection of short pieces is a major landmark of experimental fiction.��Though many of the stories gathered here were published separately, there are several themes common to them all, giving them new meaning in the context of this collection. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=66264 Fri, 30 December 2011 05:10:52 America/Los_Angeles Selected tales http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=65621 Full of vitality and insight, these are masterpieces in their own right, besides making a fine introduction to Lawrence's longer and more difficult novels.

They both seated themselves at the table. The Frenchman fought so well with his jaws, he twisted the morsels with so much agility, that he showed herself equally learned in suppers, and showed it again in dexterously draining the wine flasks without his eye becoming dimmed or his understanding affected. Then you may be sure that the Venetian thought to himself he had fallen in with a fine son of Adam, sprung from the right side and the wrong one. While they were drinking together, the Venetian endeavoured to find some joint through which to sound the secret depths of his friend's cogitations. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=64944 Thu, 22 December 2011 08:51:28 America/Los_Angeles Shape-shifter http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=64931 fic http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=64931 Thu, 22 December 2011 08:16:51 America/Los_Angeles Don't think of tigers http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=64901 the future of fiction http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=64901 Thu, 22 December 2011 04:17:01 America/Los_Angeles Polish short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=64889 fic http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=64889 Thu, 22 December 2011 03:44:14 America/Los_Angeles Beyond the Blue Mountains http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=64812 A collection of 14 short stories, ranging from the fantasy of Scheherazade to a dazzling example of chaos theory.

Powerful, moving and elegant, they cover every aspect of the human condition from tales of the family to those of the macabre...In 'The Open Curtain', a man achieves intimacy with his family only when he recognizes - watching them dine as he sits in his car at the curb - that he lives in a household of strangers. Menaced by a gang of skinheads in a Jewish cemetery, an American tourist in Germany placates the Neo-Nazis with a formula he continues to repeat even after he is safely back home in 'I Am Not a Jew'. And as for love, it makes demands in such stories as 'Do Me' that shake our very notions of what it means to love.If these stories engage the world in sometimes shocking ways, they are eloquent in their prose, surprising in their plotting, sly in their humour. Such mastery of craft is impressive, and whether it seeks to amuse or move, each story in THE TORTURER'S APPRENTICE has the power and style to affect the reader to the very core... http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=62703 Tue, 06 December 2011 05:22:12 America/Los_Angeles The gift of the Magi and other short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=62694 Sixteen�captivating stories by one of America's most popular storytellers.

Set in rural Wisconsin, these interwoven tales run a gamut of moods and textures, ranging from the warmly nostalgic "The World's Great Love Novels," in which the young narrator observes the extreme compromises adults make in the name of love, to the hard-edged and gritty "Crossroads Cafe," in which a waitress searches for tenderness, though nothing in her life so far suggests that tenderness is available. Rendered in a spare and poetic style and marked by a nuanced grasp of relationships and the vagaries of desire, the stories in A Wild, Cold State offer a familiar and resonant portrayal of the complexities of everyday life and the fundamental human need for connection. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=59608 Fri, 11 November 2011 21:39:13 America/Los_Angeles The Prodigal earth http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=59601 an anthology http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=59601 Fri, 11 November 2011 21:25:33 America/Los_Angeles The blue http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=59546 "A rare writer who is willing to address issues topical to contemporary Britain." - Daily Telegraph The actors in these short stories quietly and unobtrusively assume their place in the world.

They are also more frankly satirical. Whole words are created - or inverted. In 'Straight Fiction', everyone is gay (apart from the beleaguered 'straight' community); in 'Career Moves', screenplay writers submit their works to little magazines, while poets are flown first-class to Los Angeles; in 'The Janitor on Mars', a sardonic robot gives us some strange news about life in the solar system. Largely absent in the novels, the middle classes get a showing in 'Let Me Count the Times', where a man has had a mad affair with himself. 'Heavy Water', portrays the exhaustion of working-class culture, 'State of England' its weird resuscitation. And in 'The Coincidence of the Arts' an English baronet becomes entangled with an African-American chess hustler. The earliest story, 'Denton's Death', was first published in 1975, but the bulk of the collection can be firmly labelled 'most recent work'. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=32602 Thu, 30 December 2010 21:31:32 America/Los_Angeles soviet short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=32538 stories by inber iilf and petrov olyesha paustovsky antonov nitikin nagibin laptyev http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=32538 Wed, 29 December 2010 23:12:14 America/Los_Angeles Making Connections http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=32537 Twenty-five previously published stories on themes of relationships and personal experience, by Robert Drewe, Beverley Farmer, Helen Garner, Janette Turner Hospital, Archie Weller and Tim Winton.

From De Quincey to Huxley; Baudelaire to Burroughs, writers have fused stimulants with the creative urge; blurring experimentation with need, and desire with addiction. Recent times has seen a significant upsurge in stimulant based writing. Intoxication features some of the best of this new fiction from both British and American writers like Irvine Welsh, Lynne Tillman, Jeff Noon and Gary Indiana, fictions which explore themes closely related to the preoccupations of the 'chemical generation'. Whether as user, observer or reformed cynic, the writer's repsonse in the anthology is astoundingly eclectic. Offering a rollercoaster ride with all the hedonistic highs and paranoid poignancy of a drug itself, Intoxication is a stand out gathering of some of the most innovative and entertaining writers of the 1990s. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=22462 Fri, 10 September 2010 00:36:03 America/Los_Angeles Deep down http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=22460 In this enticing collection, seventy-one of the best contemporary women writers explore female sensuality in its myriad variations, from the most innocent to the profoundly erotic. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=22460 Fri, 10 September 2010 00:32:22 America/Los_Angeles Modern short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=22449 short stories from dylan thomas,kathrine mansfield,ted hughes,james thurber d h lawrence hemmingway w faulkner etc http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=22449 Thu, 09 September 2010 22:55:11 America/Los_Angeles The Young Oxford Book of Nasty Endings http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=22447 The stories are written by well-known writers such as Roald Dahl, Ray Bradbury, E.

The requirement for selection was that each of the stories should be true, and each of the writers should not have been previously published. The collection that has emerged provides a richly varied and authentic voice for the American people, whose lives, loves, griefs, regrets, joys and sense of humour are vividly and honestly recounted throughout, and adeptly organised by Auster into themed sections. The section composed of war stories stretches as far back as the Civil War, still the defining moment in American history; while the sequence of 'Meditations' conclude the volume with a true and abiding sense of transcendence. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=21023 Fri, 27 August 2010 01:48:11 America/Los_Angeles The Time out book of London short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=20891 short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=20891 Thu, 26 August 2010 03:01:01 America/Los_Angeles australian short stories vol 2 no6 http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=20820 no16 http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=20820 Thu, 26 August 2010 00:16:46 America/Los_Angeles Yisrōel: the Jewish omnibus http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=20787 short stories by jews http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=20787 Wed, 25 August 2010 22:36:31 America/Los_Angeles Sixteen by twelve http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=20218 short stories from canada http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=20218 Sun, 22 August 2010 22:22:16 America/Los_Angeles You can't keep a good woman down http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=20084 Alice Walker reads two of her stories : "Fame" and "The Abortion," and discusses her writing and politics.

Clark's ten frank yet subtle stories, told from the perspective of women at different ages, explore how childhood experiences shape adult choices. In "God's Country," a woman rages against the "eye of God" that has reduced the miner's son she once loved to a mute old man. "Historical Fiction," a comic allegory of university life, imagines first-year virgins guarded in their dorm by a witch with a cat named Freud. In the title story, two sisters come back "from away" to bury their mother, whom they recall as a small bird, "singing from a high, thin wire."

The story, It's a Funeral! RSVP, is a kind of do-it-yourself funeral service for those about to die, while in Your Husband Is Cheating on Us, a mistress proposes joining forces with the wife against a second mistress. Another extraordinary collection of short stories by the author of "Carolina Moon" and "Crash Diet". "(McCorkle's) characters . . . ring as true as lead crystal".--"The Commercial Appeal" (Memphis). Available. When Jill McCorkle feels a short story coming on, she goes right ahead and "wastes" wonderful ideas instead of hoarding them for a novel. The result is another extraordinary collection of stories and characters. In "It's a Funeral! RSVP," the storyteller is a woman who takes up self-styled "careers" that suit her circumstances. Now she's stumbled onto one that's so successful that she just can't quit. It's planning funerals, what she calls Going Out Parties, in which the clients are the soon-to-be-deceased themselves. In "Life Prerecorded," perhaps McCorkle's finest short piece to date, the pregnant narrator finds the real meaning of new life by visiting with a very old neighbor who's waiting, too, for his own new life. In these and the rest of the nine stories, Jill McCorkle acts on her penchant for taming the outrageous, humanizing the forbidden, and grounding the hilarious. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=16343 Wed, 14 July 2010 01:30:42 America/Los_Angeles Modern English short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=16253 short stories from 1930-1955 http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=16253 Tue, 13 July 2010 03:38:58 America/Los_Angeles The haunted dolls' house and other stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=16204 short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=16204 Tue, 13 July 2010 01:24:36 America/Los_Angeles The Punch book of short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=16195 short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=16195 Tue, 13 July 2010 01:08:54 America/Los_Angeles Selected short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=16133 includes monkeys paw boatswains mate guardian angle tigers skin bills paper chase http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=16133 Mon, 12 July 2010 03:59:19 America/Los_Angeles A fanatic heart http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=16126 The twenty-nine stories in this volume include all nine from RETURNING; four uncollected stories that have previously appeared in the NEW YORKER and the author's own selections from THE LOVE OBJECT, A SCANDALOUS WOMAN and MRS REINHARDT.

But throughout the narrative, James contrasts American customs and values with European manners and morals in a tale rich in psychological and social insight. A vivid portrayal of Americans abroad and a telling encounter between the values of the Old and New Worlds, "Daisy Miller" is an ideal introduction to the work of one of America's greatest writers of fiction. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=15079 Thu, 01 July 2010 23:52:13 America/Los_Angeles Disco biscuits http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=14948 new fiction from the chemical generation http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=14948 Thu, 01 July 2010 04:36:03 America/Los_Angeles Love of fat men http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=14905 There is nothing as sleep-giving as the shoulder and breast of a fat man ...

It can be a sign of belonging or a sign of individuality, a way to hide or a way to stand out. Fifteen women of varied backgrounds, including Stella Duffy, Kate Mosse, Candia McWilliam, Muriel Gray, Morag Joss, Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor, Jean Marsh and Michelle Berry, offer a colourful range of views on the little black dress. BBC Radio Four originally broadcast a selection of these stories.

There is Mary, struggling with quiche Lorraine in a Home Economics class and dreaming of Russian sailors; Moira, who's escaped to Latin America and sunshine and finds herself longing for the dreariness of home; and the strains of a mother/daughter relationship come to the fore when they go swimming together. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=13924 Fri, 18 June 2010 01:55:25 America/Los_Angeles The trip to London http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=13906 short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=13906 Fri, 18 June 2010 01:06:31 America/Los_Angeles Flame Angels http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=13879 anthology of irish writings http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=13879 Fri, 18 June 2010 00:09:01 America/Los_Angeles French Short Stories of the 19th and 20th Centuries http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=13852 Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.

Nineteenth-century writing, which is largely unknown, is represented by Clara Cheeseman and G B Lancaster, as well as by the more familiar Lady Barker and itinerant Henry Lawson. In the early twentieth century Katherine Mansfield is followed by Greville Texidor as well as Frank Sargeson and Dan Davin. The middle years of the century exhibit a flowering of talent. Janet Frame, Maurice Duggan, and Maurice Gee are all fine practitioners of the genre, while Witi Ihimaera and Patricia Grace are the strong voices of Maori writing. The past dozen or so years have seen an explosion of new writing, with talents as diverse as Owen Marshall, Keri Hulme, Barbara Anderson, and Peter Wells. The selection provides an introduction to New Zealand short fiction that readers interestd in the new literatures in English will find stimulating and surprising. The stories are accompanied by brief biographical notes and a glossary of Maori words. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=13756 Thu, 17 June 2010 05:56:19 America/Los_Angeles The fly pool and other stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=13670 short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=13670 Wed, 16 June 2010 05:29:28 America/Los_Angeles Elementals http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=13667 A new volume of stories from A.

She praises Whitman ("the brother I did not have") and denounces cuteness ("we are, none of use, cute"). She notes where the extraordinary is to be found ("it is more likely to stick to the risk-taker than the ticket-taker") and extols solitude ("creative work needs the whole sky to fly in, and no eye watching until it comes to that certainty which it aspires to"). Nature speaks to her, and she speaks to nature ("I put my face close to the lily, where it stands just above the grass, and give it a good greeting from the stem of my heart"). Says Mary Oliver, "This book is biased, opinionated; also it is joyful, and probably there's despair here too - can a life slide forward sixty years without it? But the reader will find the pleasures more certain, and more constant, than the rills of despond. Thus it has turned out in my life so far, influenced by the sustaining passions: love of the wild world, love of literature, love for and from another person". http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=12724 Tue, 08 June 2010 02:17:45 America/Los_Angeles Short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=12568 fiction http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=12568 Mon, 07 June 2010 05:02:29 America/Los_Angeles Quiet Quarter http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=12564 10 years of great irish writing http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=12564 Mon, 07 June 2010 04:55:35 America/Los_Angeles Forty shades of green http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=12554 short stories from writers in northern ireland http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=12554 Mon, 07 June 2010 04:34:00 America/Los_Angeles Best ghost stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=11766 from wilkie collins,henry james,guy de maupassant,ocsar wilde,edith wharton,rudyard kipling,h g wells saki algernon blackwood etc http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=11766 Wed, 02 June 2010 01:07:08 America/Los_Angeles Canadian Short Stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=11765 fic http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=11765 Wed, 02 June 2010 01:03:04 America/Los_Angeles Why haven't you written? http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=11734 short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=11734 Wed, 02 June 2010 00:10:06 America/Los_Angeles The Red hog of Colima http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=11626 scottish short stories 1989 http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=11626 Tue, 01 June 2010 04:01:28 America/Los_Angeles Dublin stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=11623 short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=11623 Tue, 01 June 2010 03:51:09 America/Los_Angeles Fifty true stories stranger than fiction http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=11095 short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=11095 Sun, 30 May 2010 12:37:10 America/Los_Angeles Scotland into the new era http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=10939 new writings http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=10939 Sat, 29 May 2010 06:39:36 America/Los_Angeles Strange tales from many lands http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=10909 Eleven tales from different countries including "The Werewolf" from Spain, "The Inn That Wasn't There" from China, and "The Boy in the Secret Valley" from Iceland. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=10909 Sat, 29 May 2010 05:58:23 America/Los_Angeles 44 Irish short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=10903 In this anthology there are gathered, for the first time in America, some of the more representative examples of Irish short fiction.

James Lee Burke, author of the bestselling Dave Robicheaux mysteries, gives us a feverishly atmospheric tale of racism and moral courage on the Louisiana bayou. From the files of Jim Thompson, the godfather of American noir, comes the story of a murder with a victim so nasty we defy anyone to shed a tear far him. And Joyce Carol Oates shows us how a sudden brush with violence can turn a public servant into a public enemy. The result is a deliriously pulse-pounding collection that proves that although crime doesn't pay, it can help a good cause. All the stories in this collection of crime fiction have been donated to benefit Share Our Strength, a Washington, D. C.-based nonprofit organization that combats hunger, poverty, and illiteracy. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=6597 Mon, 10 May 2010 05:08:47 America/Los_Angeles The Horror hall of fame http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=6594 features fritz leiber ray bradbury harlan ellison stephen king and other masters http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=6594 Mon, 10 May 2010 05:04:15 America/Los_Angeles Classic tales of horror http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=6592 stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=6592 Mon, 10 May 2010 04:59:24 America/Los_Angeles Civil War Memories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=6552 The unique anthology gathers nineteen works of fiction by a renowned group of writers who lived and worked in the Civil War era.

As a result, our relation ships and day-to-day interactions with others tend to be dictated by the clock. Perhaps we discover the importance of spending time with people, only when it is already too late. We may be left with regrets: of lost opportunities to be together, of not listening in a conversation, of time wasted in pursuit of some material or career goal." "For Wasting Time With People? Alice Leahy invited a diverse range of friends to help her address what has become one of the greatest challenges of life today: how to make time for others amidst all the pressures." "The result is an insightful and very honest selection of essays, poems, short stories and personal recollections, from a large cross-section of contemporary Ireland. Poets, playwrights, journalists and authors, as well as members of the judiciary, church, medical and political worlds, and people who are homeless: they are all here - helping to start a quiet revolution in Irish society that could change our quality of life for the better."--BOOK JACKET. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=6547 Mon, 10 May 2010 04:15:14 America/Los_Angeles A distant episode http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=6542 A compilation of Bowles's best short fiction, by the author himself.

Maeve Binchy's 'When Grania Grows Up' pinpoints the moment a girl who believed in happy families loses her innocent faith in people; Marita Conlon-McKenna writes of a teenage romance that triggers hostilities between Catholics and Protestants; the title story by Shane Connaughton deals with macabre humour with a teenage boy rumoured to have committed a murder; and Helena Mullkerns' 'Landlocked' is about an Irish girl waitressing in Texas and beginning to understand the complex dream of immigrant life. The authors include some exciting newcomers, some top Irish children's writers, and some established adult writers who have never written for young people before. In their very different ways each succeeds brilliantly in conveying the universal longing of the young to grow up, to love, and to start a new life. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4677 Mon, 03 May 2010 13:19:58 America/Los_Angeles The Penguin Henry Lawson short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4671 A selection of 22 short stories portrays the realities of daily life in the Australian bush http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4671 Mon, 03 May 2010 13:05:15 America/Los_Angeles The complete short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4669 vol 2 http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4669 Mon, 03 May 2010 13:00:45 America/Los_Angeles Prize stories of 1943 http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4654 short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4654 Mon, 03 May 2010 12:06:10 America/Los_Angeles Antique dust http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4380 ghost stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4380 Sun, 02 May 2010 09:43:01 America/Los_Angeles The laughing academy http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4230 short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4230 Sat, 01 May 2010 23:48:49 America/Los_Angeles Piranha to scurfy and other stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4222 A lonely man spends his time writing scathingly critical letters to newly published authors in memory of his mother, buried in his garden, in the title story in a collection of short fiction that also includes "The Wink" about a woman who waits a lifetime for revenge, "Catamount," and "High Mysterious Union," a gripping tale of obsession and violence. 25,000 first printing. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4222 Sat, 01 May 2010 23:02:50 America/Los_Angeles Cowboys, Indians and commuters http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4108 the penguine book of new american voices http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4108 Sat, 01 May 2010 06:37:49 America/Los_Angeles The feminists go swimming http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4064 short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=4064 Sat, 01 May 2010 03:11:46 America/Los_Angeles Supernatural http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=2721 short stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=2721 Sun, 25 April 2010 07:53:44 America/Los_Angeles Selected stories http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=2696 These four stories, set at home and abroad, display Murial Spark's characteristically witty and unbalancing powers. In 'The Executor' the niece of a famous author is pursued by an unfinished manuscript. 'Bang-bang You're Dead' mixes childhood games and white-settler affairs to paint a sinister and comic portrait of colonial life and murder by proxy in Africa. Also set in Africa, 'The Seraph and the Zambesi' tells of a Christmas pageant which has the strangest visitor, while 'Portobello Road' is a story haunted by childhood friendships and adult betrayals. Together they illustrate why Spark is regarded as one the greatest living short story writers. http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=2696 Sun, 25 April 2010 05:42:04 America/Los_Angeles The Other voice http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=406 scottisch women writings http://www.kitabain.com/index.php?view=bookdetail&id=406 Thu, 08 April 2010 03:39:39 America/Los_Angeles
