    For fantasy fans bored with the same old cookie-cutter plots and themes, Francis Marion Crawford's The Witch of Prague is a welcome reprieve.

  • Decline and Fallby Evelyn Waugh; David Bradshaw

    Penguin Books Ltd 2012; US$ 12.68

    Sent down from Oxford in outrageous circumstances, Paul Pennyfeather is oddly surprised to find himself qualifying for the position of schoolmaster at Llanabba Castle. His colleagues are an assortment of misfits, rascals and fools, including Prendy (plagued by doubts) and Captain Grimes, who is always in the soup (or just plain drunk). Then Sports... more...

  • The Strangerby Albert Camus

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2012; US$ 13.95

    Through the story of an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on an Algerian beach, Camus explored what he termed "the nakedness of man faced with the absurd." First published in 1946; now in a new translation by Matthew Ward. more...

  • Murphyby Samuel Beckett

    Faber & Faber 2012; US$ 13.12

    Edited by J. C. C. Mays Murphy , Samuel Beckett's first novel, was published in 1938.

    OUP Oxford 2012; US$ 8.99

    The Ladies' Paradise (Au Bonheur des Dames) recounts the spectacular development of the modern department store in late nineteenth-century Paris.

  • Malone Diesby Samuel Beckett

    Faber & Faber 2012; US$ 13.12

    'Malone', writes Malone, 'is what I am called now.' On his deathbed, and wiling away the time with stories, the octogenarian Malone's account of his condition is intermittent and contradictory, shifting with the vagaries of the passing days: without mellowness, without elegiacs; wittier, jauntier, and capable of wilder rages than Molloy. The sound... more...

  • The Unnamableby Samuel Beckett

    Faber & Faber 2012; US$ 13.12

    The Unnamable - so named because he knows not who he may be - is from a nameless place. He speaks of previous selves ('all these Murphys, Molloys, and Malones...') as diversions from the need to stop speaking altogether. But, as with the other novels in the trilogy, the prose is full of marvellous precisions, full of its own reasons for keeping... more...

  • Anna Kareninaby Leo Tolstoy

    HarperCollins Canada 2012; US$ 1.99

    Profile Books 2011; US$ 10.65

    The Depression of the 1930s led people to desperate measures to survive. The marathon dance craze, which flourished at that time seemed a simple way for people to earn extra money dancing the hours away for cash, for weeks at a time.
