Das Werk "Billy Budd" ist der letzte Roman des amerikanischen Schriftstellers Herman Melville (1819–1891). Verfasst zwischen 1886 und 1891, blieb er lange Zeit verschollen und erst 1924 wiederentdeckt und veröffentlicht. Das Manuskript konnte offensichtlich von dem Autor vor seinem Tode nicht mehr vollendet werden und wirft eine Reihe von Problemen auf, die das Verständnis und auch die Deutung des Romans erschweren.

'This is fiction, but it has, for me, the clang of truth' John Updike WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY E. L. DOCTOROW John O’Hara is widely credited with inventing the New Yorker short story, and remains the most-published short story writer in the history of the magazine. Selected from his vast collection of short fiction written over forty years, these refreshingly frank, sparely written stories show him at his best. Exposing a world of bartenders and 'b-girls', car washers and criminals, O'Hara dissects the subtleties that bind humans together and the pressures that separate them.

This is a book to be read by a blazing fire on a winter's night, with the curtains drawn close and the doors securely locked. The unquiet souls of the dead, both as fictional creations and as 'real' apparitions, roam the pages of this haunting selection of ghost stories by Rex Collings. Some of these stories are classics while others are lesser-known gems unearthed from this vintage era of tales of the supernatural. There are stories from distant lands - 'Fisher's Ghost' by John Lang is set in Australia and 'A Ghostly Manifestation' by 'A Clergyman' is set in Calcutta. In this selection, Sir Walter Scott (a Victorian in spirit if not in fact), keeps company with Edgar Allen Poe, Sheridan Le Fanu and other illustrious masters of the genre.

WINNER OF THE 2013 NOBEL PRIZE IN LITERATURE Spanning almost thirty years and settings that range from big cities to small towns and farmsteads of rural Canada, this magnificent collection brings together twenty-eight stories by a writer of unparalleled wit, generosity, and emotional power. In her Selected Stories, Alice Munro makes lives that seem small unfold until they are revealed to be as spacious as prairies and locates the moments of love and betrayal, desire and forgiveness, that change those lives forever. To read these stories--about a traveling salesman and his children on an impromptu journey; an abandoned woman choosing between seduction and solitude--is to succumb to the spell of a writer who enchants her readers utterly even as she restores them to their truest selves.

Using, or rather mimicking, traditional forms of storytelling Gogol created stories that are complete within themselves and only tangentially connected to a meaning or moral. His work belongs to the school of invention, where each twist and turn of the narrative is a surprise unfettered by obligation to an overarching theme. Selected from Evenings on a Farm near Dikanka, Mirgorod, and the Petersburg tales and arranged in order of composition, the thirteen stories in The Collected Tales of Nikolai Gogolencompass the breadth of Gogol's literary achievement. From the demon-haunted “St. John's Eve ” to the heartrending humiliations and trials of a titular councilor in “The Overcoat,” Gogol's knack for turning literary conventions on their heads combined with his overt joy in the art of story telling shine through in each of the tales. This translation, by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, is as vigorous and darkly funny as the original Russian. It allows readers to experience anew the unmistakable genius of a writer who paved the way for Dostevsky and Kafka.

Virginia Woolfs subtile Gesellschaftskomödie aus viktorianischer Zeit Katharine Hilbery, wohlerzogene Tochter aus der Londoner Oberschicht, ist standesgemäß und langweilig verlobt. Doch sie erliegt der Faszination des jungen Rechtsanwalts und sozialen Aufsteigers Ralph, der sie liebt, aber seinerseits von der Frauenrechtlerin Mary verehrt wird. Katharine entscheidet sich gegen die Konventionen ihrer Herkunft und für ihre Liebe zu Ralph. Ihre Cousine Cassandra schwärmt hingegen für Katharines Verlobten und verzehrt sich deshalb in Gewissensnöten. Spionierende Tanten, verpasste Rendezvous, Eifersucht und gekränkte Eitelkeiten können nicht verhindern, dass die Verliebten zueinander finden.

'Munro is still one of our most fearless explorers of the human being, as she descends, time and again, headlamp on full beam, pickaxe and butter-knife at the ready' The Times Spanning her last five collections and bringing together her finest work from the past fifteen years, this new selection of Alice Munro's stories infuses everyday lives with a wealth of nuance and insight. Beautifully observed and remarkably crafted, written with emotion and empathy, these stories are nothing short of perfection. A masterclass in the genre, from an author who deservedly lays claim to being one of the major fiction writers of our time.
