Edgar Award Finalist for Best First Novel by an American Author “Captivating . . . has qualities any reader would wish for: adventure, romance, history and a vividly described exotic setting.”—The Washington Post In 1925 the international treasure-hunting scene is a man’s world, and no one understands this better than Irene Blum, who is passed over for a coveted museum curatorship because she is a woman. Seeking to restore her reputation, she sets off from Seattle in search of a temple believed to house the lost history of Cambodia’s ancient Khmer civilization. But her quest to make the greatest archaeological discovery of the century soon becomes a quest for her family’s secrets. Embracing the colorful and corrupt world of colonial Asia in the early 1900s, The Map of Lost Memories takes readers into a forgotten era where nothing is as it seems. As Irene travels through Shanghai's lawless back streets and Saigon’s opium-filled lanes, she joins forces with a Communist temple robber and an intriguing nightclub owner with a complicated past. What they bring to light deep within the humidity-soaked Cambodian jungle does more than change history. It ultimately solves the mysteries of their own lives. Look for special features inside.

Praise for The Map of Lost Memories “In The Map of Lost Memories, Kim Fay draws us into a universe as exotic, intense, and historically detailed as the ancient artifacts her unforgettable heroine seeks. It’s a deliciously unexpected journey: Indiana Jones meets Somerset Maugham meets Marguerite Duras.”—Jennifer Cody Epstein, author of The Painter from Shanghai “A thrilling mix of adventure and personal discovery . . . [Kim] Fay crafts an intricate page-turner that will keep readers breathless and guessing.”—Publishers Weekly “A ripping good tale . . . mysterious Asian locations . . . a driven young American heroine . . . an era no longer remembered but faded to romantic imagination . . . The Map of Lost Memories pulls the components together in a story that intrigues and rewards.”—Lincoln Journal Star “Fay’s extraordinary novel has everything great historical-adventure fiction should—a strikingly original setting, exhilarating plot twists, and a near-impossible quest.”—Booklist (starred review)

Джеффрі Арчер (нар. 1940 р.) — постать доволі неоднозначна. Англійський політик з оксфордською освітою, який кілька разів полишав політичну арену через скандали; благодійник; лорд, котрий потрапив до в’язниці за лже- свідоцтво та перешкоду в здійсненні правосуддя; людина, яка почала писати книжки, щоб хоч якось виправити своє матеріальне становище. Уже перший його роман став у США бестселером і дав авторові змогу розплатитися з боргами. Й Арчер так захопився письменництвом, що написав понад 20 книжок. В основі роману «Каїн і Авель» (1979) — протистояння двох яскравих особистостей. Вільям Ловелл Каїн народився в Америці в сім’ї багатого банкіра, що здебільшого й визначило його характер і майбутнє. Авель Росновський з’явився на світ у той самий день, що і Каїн, тільки у Польщі, і був знайдою, сьомою дитиною у бідній родині, й до свого повноліття йому довелося пережити стільки лиха, що не кожна б людина могла витримати. Проте, незважаючи на такі різні долі, Каїна і Авеля об’єднувала воля до життя і прагнення в усьому бути першими. І врешті-решт провидіння зіштовхнуло їх у нещадній боротьбі за владу і багатство...

This is the first volume in a new series on the work of the poet W. H. Auden. The volume contains a large amount of Unpublished material by Auden, notably six poems written in German in the early 1930s, translated here by the poet and scholar David Constantine, as well as the complete versionof the important early essay, `Writing', with a new foreword by its original editor Naomi Mitchison. There are substantial selections from Auden's letters to Stephen Spender and to E. R. Dodds and Mrs Dodds: these are the first Auden letters to receive a scholarly presentation with full annotation.Also in the volume are essays about Auden and his mentors and contemporaries, by leading scholars in the field such as Valentine Cunningham, John Fuller, Julian Symons, and Stan Smith, as well as by outstanding newcomers. For bibliophiles, there is advice on collecting Auden's works, and EdwardMendelson has contributed a Supplement to his comprehensive W. H. Auden: A Bibliography, 1924-1969.

Повість «Білий Зуб» відомого американського письменника Джека Лондона (1876—1916) описує події, які відбувалися під час золотої лихоманки на Алясці. Напіввовк-напівсобака народився на волі, але був приручений. Жорстокий і суворий світ, який оточував його, загрожував неминучою загибеллю. І лише зустріч з доброю людиною допомогла йому вижити. Автор розповідає про вірність і дружбу, що може бути між твариною та людиною, про нелегкий вибір Білого Зуба між природними інстинктами лютого хижака та любов’ю до свого господаря.

This study brings together the genres of autobiography and environmental literature. It examines a form of grief narrative in which writers deal with mourning by standing outside the text in writing about the natural world, and inside it in making that exposition part of the grieving process.
