Two Side of Hell / Vincent Bramley. - Londyn : Bloomsbury, 1994. - 270 s. : il. ; 24 cm.
The unique and harrowing account of the most destructive battle of the Falklands War as seen through the eyes of eight ordinary Argentinian soldiers from the seventh infantry regiment and five British paratroopers. Vincent Bramley was a Lance-Corporal and gives a unique and chilling perspective on the horrors of battle. This is a testament to those who bear the brunt of the fighting and a no-holds-barred account of what it is really like to have to do the dirty work of war, where you have to kill or be killed, and sometimes you are pushed over the edge.

Reading in the Dark / Seamus Deane. - Londyn : Jonathan Cape, 1996. - 232 s. ; 22 cm.
Słowo kluczowe: novel ; horror ; thriller ; English novel
The Derry of poet Seamus Deane's first novel, "Reading in the Dark" is a perilous place. Ghosts haunt the stairwells of apartment buildings, a curse follows two families down through the generations, close friends turn out to be police informers and the police are as likely to persecute an innocent man as protect him. And hovering over all the violence, poverty and despair of 1940s Northern Ireland is the spectre of the "Troubles". The hero of the novel is an unnamed young man whose life turns upside down when a policeman frames him. Deception becomes his only means of self-defence. But the initial lie on the part of the policeman and the narrator's corresponding trickery are only part of the tangled web Deane weaves here. Early in the novel we learn that Uncle Eddie, an Irish Republican Army gunman, was blown up in the town distillery in 1922. In addition to sorting out his own problems, the narrator seeks the truth about his uncle's death.

Madame Bovary / Gustave Flaubert. - London : Penguin Books, 1995. - 360, [1] s. ; 18 cm.
(Penguin Popular Classics)
"Madame Bovary" (1856) is the French writer Gustave Flaubert's debut novel. The story focuses on a doctor's wife, Emma Bovary, who has adulterous affairs and lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life. When the novel was first serialized in La Revue de Paris between 1 October 1856 and 15 December 1856, public prosecutors attacked the novel for obscenity. The resulting trial in January 1857 made the story notorious. After Flaubert's acquittal on 7 February 1857, "Madame Bovary" became a bestseller in April 1857 when it was published as a single volume. The novel is now considered Flaubert's masterpiece, as well as a seminal work of literary realism and one of the most influential novels

Dubliners / James Joyce. - London : Penguin Books, 1996. - 255, [1] s. ; 18 cm.
(Penguin Popular Classics)
'Don't you think there is a certain resemblance between the mystery of the Mass and what I am trying to do? ...To give people some kind of intellectual pleasure or spiritual enjoyment by converting the bread of everyday life into something that has a permanent artistic life of its own' - James Joyce, in a letter to his brother. With these fifteen stories James Joyce reinvented the art of fiction, using a scrupulous, deadpan realism to convey truths that were at once blasphemous and sacramental. Whether writing about the death of a fallen priest ("The Sisters"), the petty sexual and fiscal machinations of "Two Gallants," or of the Christmas party at which an uprooted intellectual discovers just how little he really knows about his wife ("The Dead"), Joyce takes narrative places it had never been before.

Shear / Tim Parks. - Berkshire : "Minerva", [1996]. - 210 s. ; 20 cm.
In the hallucinatory light and heat of a Mediterranean island, a geologist arrives to inspect a granite quarry where a worker has been killed in suspicious circumstances. Briefed in advance to write a damning report, he brings along his young mistress and pushes his wife and family to the back of his mind. But his blithe plans are disrupted by the arrival of the dead man's widow, hell-bent on revenge; a fax from his wife announcing her pregnancy; and a threatening dispute with the quarry owners. Conflicting messages and complex motivations abound until, from the dust and roar of quarry and stone mill, the jagged contours of a harrowing conspiracy emerge. By the time the home office instructs him to drop the case, it is too late. He has already stumbled into a web of blackmail, deception, and murder.

(St. Martin's Fiction)
"River God" is the first of Wilbur Smith's fascinating adventure stories set in ancient Egypt about the land of the Pharaohs. Ancient Egypt. Land of the Pharaohs. A kingdom built on gold. A legend shattered by greed. Now the Valley of the Kings lies ravaged by war, drained of its lifeblood as weak men inherit the cherished crown. In the city of Thebes at the Festival of Osiris, loyal subjects of the Pharaoh gather to pay homage to their leader. But Taita - a wise and formidably gifted eunuch slave, sees him only as a symbol of a kingdom's fading glory. Beside Taita stand his proteges, Lostris, daughter of Lord Intef, beautiful beyond her fourteen years; and Tanus, proud, young army officer, who has vowed to avenge the death - at Intef's hand - of his father, and seize Lostris as his prize. Together they share a dream - to restore the majesty of the Pharaoh of Pharaohs on the glittering banks of the Nile.
