              Growing up in a working-class neighbourhood in Copenhagen, Tove feels that her childhood is made for a completely different girl. As 'long, mysterious words begin to crawl across my soul', she comes to understand that she has a vocation that will define her life. Her path seems a...ssured, but she has no idea of the struggles ahead - love affairs, wanted and unwanted pregnancies, artistic failure and destructive addiction. As the years go by, the central tension of Tove's life comes into painful focus: the terrible lure of dependency, in all its forms, and the possibility of living freely and fearlessly - as an artist on her own terms.

              No account of the financial insanity of 1929 has been issued in a form at once so readable, so humorous, and so carefully authenticated as this classic book. J.K. Galbraith examines the 'gold rush fantasy' in American psychology and describes its dire consequences. The Florida la...nd boom, the operations of Insull, Kreuger and Hatry, and the fabulous Shenandoah Corporation all come together in this penetrating study of concerted human greed and folly. From the cold figures of Wall Street the author wrenches a truly human drama.

              Nostalgia (Paperback)

              By Cartarescu, Mircea; Translated by Semilian, Julian

              The five segments of Mircea Cartarescu's groundbreaking novel each focus on wildly separate narratives. Different in plot, style and tone, each tale nevertheless revolves around a shared core, a hidden centre. Taken as a whole, they serves as exploration of time and place, of com...munism and capitalism, of real and unreal. Insightful, strange and wildly imaginative, Nostalgia is one of the best Romanian novels of the twentieth century.

              Bombed-out Cologne after the war is a strange place to be. The black market in jam and corsets is booming, half-destroyed houses offer opportunities for stealing doors and eggcups, and de-Nazification parties are all the rage. Recently released from a prisoner-of-war camp, Ferdin...and drifts around the city, strenuously avoiding his fiancee and drinking brandy with his fabulous cousin. But is this any way to go on? Told with Keun's characteristic humour, irony and generosity of spirit, this is a wry portrait of a man, a city and a nation that asks how we go on living even in the face of total defeat.

              Winter (Paperback)

              Winter is the epic, sprawling tale of one German dynasty during two world wars. It takes us into the lives of two German brothers, both born close upon the turn of the century, both so caught up in the currents of history that their story is one with the story of their country, f...rom the Kaiser's heyday through Hitler's rise and fall. In his portrait of a Berlin family during the turbulent years of the first half of the century, Len Deighton has created a compelling study of the rise of Nazi Germany. It is a novel that rings powerfully true, a rich and remarkable portrait of Germany in the first half of the twentieth century, and a prelude to Deighton's classic spy trilogy, Berlin Game, Mexico Set and London Match. With its meticulous research, rich detail and brilliantly drawn cast of characters, Winter is a superbly realized achievement.
