    Three stories in one volume from one of Britain's most admired authors and playwrights.

In "Father! Father! Burning Bright" Bennett writes... more...

  • The Summer Without Menby Siri Hustvedt

    Picador 2011; US$ 11.90

    "And who among us would deny Jane Austen her happy endings or insist that Cary Grant and Irene Dunne should get back together at the end of The Awful Truth ? There are tragedies and there are comedies, aren't there? And they are often more the same than different, rather like men and women, if you ask me. A comedy depends on stopping the story at... more...

  • Humiliationby Wayne Koestenbaum

    Picador 2011; US$ 6.79

    Wayne Koestenbaum considers the meaning of humiliation in this eloquent work of cultural critique and personal reflection.

In these moments we not only witness the reversibility of "success," of prominence, but also come to... more...

  • Home Landby Sam Lipsyte

    Picador 2005; Not Available

    What if somebody finally wrote to his high school alumni bulletin and told...the truth! Here is an update from hell, and the most brilliant work to date, by the novelist whom Jeffrey Eugenides calls "original, devious, and very funny" and of whose first novel Chuck Palahniuk wrote, "I laughed out loud---and I never laugh out loud." The Eastern Valley... more...

  • Ladies' Manby Richard Price

    Picador 2011; US$ 6.79

    Kenny Becker just dumped his girlfriend--the reasons are a little complex. Young and newly unemployed, his main assets at the moment are six-pack abs and a healthy libido--he's ready to get out, find a little action, and maybe find himself too. But New York is no place for the lonely, and with one meaningless sexual encounter after another, Kenny... more...

  • Three Filmsby Paul Auster

    Picador 2003; Not Available

    From The New York Trilogy to The Book of Illusions , Paul Auster's novels have earned him a reputation as "one of American's most spectacularly inventive writers."

  • A Bigamist's Daughterby Alice McDermott

    Picador 2005; US$ 6.79

    The New York Times Bestselling Author of After This and Charming Billy Elizabeth Connelly, editor at a New York vanity press, sells the dream of publication (admittedly, to writers of questionable talent).

A yearning, homesick mother, a silent and... more...
