Extraordinary and diverse people inhabit this rich, ripe, occasionally raucous collection of short stories. Some are based on real people - Jeanne Duval, Baudelaire´s handsome and reluctant muse who never asked to be called the Black Venus, trapped in the terminal ennui of the poet´s passion, snatching at a little lifesaving respectability against all odds.... Edgar Allen Poe, with his face of an actor, demonstrating in every thought and deed how right his friends were when they said, ´No man is safe who drinks before breakfast´. And some of these people are totally imaginary. Such as the 17th century whore, transported to Virginia for thieving, who turns into a good woman in spite of herself among the Indians, who have nothing worth stealing. And a girl, suckled by wolves, strange and indifferent as nature, who will not tolerate returning to humanity. Angela Carter wonderfully mingles history, fiction, invention, literary criticism, high drama and low comedy in a glorious collection of stories as full of contradictions and surprises as life itself. 1.

A new edition of one of best-selling author Lionel Shriver´s early novels, reissued 25 years after first publication - an engrossing commentary on the intersection of politics and human relationships, set in turbulent Northern Ireland. For 10 years Estrin Lancaster has fled Philadelphia. From the Philippines to Berlin, she´s been a traveler without a destination, an expatriate without a motherland. In each of the cities Estrin favors, she manages an apartment, a job, and a lover and never tarries past the first signs of ennui. Her latest destination is Belfast in Northern Ireland. After 20 years of ritualized violence, this city, too, is exhausted - a town where when one more bomb explodes in the city center, old ladies blow the dust off their treacle cakes and count their change. Here the lanky and spiteful Farrell O´Phelan, former purveyor of his own bomb-disposal service, technically Catholic but everyone´s aggravation, wrangles through the maze of factions in the North by despising every side. Farrell´s affair with the curious Estrin is nonetheless a meeting of two loners; like hers, Farrell´s marathoning around the planet has become a running in place. In deadlocked Northern Ireland, it has become harder and harder to believe that anything is happening at all. A grand tragi-comedy - one of the earliest displays of the ambition and intelligence that has since earned Lionel Shriver worldwide acclaim - Ordinary Decent Criminals is about conflict groupies, people terrified of domesticity, who stir up anguish in their lives and their countries to avoid the greater horror of what lies closest to home. 1.
