Description : As a boy in Brooklyn's Red Hook projects, James McBride knew his mother was different. But when he asked about it, she'd simply say 'I'm light-skinned.' Later he wondered if he was different too, and asked his mother if he was black or white. 'You're a human being,' she snapped. 'Educate yourself or you'll be a nobody!' And when James asked what colour God was, she said 'God is the colour of water.' As an adult, McBride finally persuaded his mother to tell her story - the story of a rabbi's daughter, born in Poland and raised in the South, who fled to Harlem, married a black man, founded a Baptist church, and put twelve children through college.

Description : It's been a long seventeen years since Jess last saw her grandmother or visited the family cottage set on an idyllic lake in Northern Michigan. For all that time, she's been haunted by loss--of her innocence and her ability to trust and, most of all, of a profound summer romance that might have been something more. So when her grandmother leaves the house to her, Jess summons her courage and returns to a place full of memories--and secrets. There, she stumbles upon old letters and photographs of a time not so much forgotten as buried. As she begins to unravel the hidden histories of her mother and her grandmother, she makes a startling discovery about a tragic death that prompted her family's slow undoing. With every uneven and painful step into the past, Jess comes closer to a truth that could alter her own path--and open a door to a different future.

Description : “A vivid, often funny story collection that examines serious topics like race, war, history, and self-identity—all with a deft hand and a fluid, musical voice.” —Entertainment Weekly Exciting new fiction from James McBride, the first since his National Book Award–winning novel The Good Lord Bird. The stories in Five-Carat Soul—none of them ever published before—spring from the place where identity, humanity, and history converge. They’re funny and poignant, insightful and unpredictable, imaginative and authentic—all told with McBride’s unrivaled storytelling skill and meticulous eye for character and detail. McBride explores the ways we learn from the world and the people around us. An antiques dealer discovers that a legendary toy commissioned by Civil War General Robert E. Lee now sits in the home of a black minister in Queens. Five strangers find themselves thrown together and face unexpected judgment. An American president draws inspiration from a conversation he overhears in a stable. And members of The Five-Carat Soul Bottom Bone Band recount stories from their own messy and hilarious lives. As McBride did in his National Book award-winning The Good Lord Bird and his bestselling The Color of Water, he writes with humor and insight about how we struggle to understand who we are in a world we don’t fully comprehend. The result is a surprising, perceptive, and evocative collection of stories that is also a moving exploration of our human condition.

Description : «К западу от Аркхема много высоких холмов и долин с густыми лесами, где никогда не гулял топор. В узких, темных лощинах на крутых склонах чудом удерживаются деревья, а в ручьях даже в летнюю пору не играют солнечные лучи. На более пологих склонах стоят старые фермы с приземистыми каменными и заросшими мхом постройками, хранящие вековечные тайны Новой Англии. Теперь дома опустели, широкие трубы растрескались и покосившиеся стены едва удерживают островерхие крыши. Старожилы перебрались в другие края, а чужакам здесь не по душе. Никто не прижился на фермах, ни франкоканадцы, ни итальянцы, ни поляки. Как ни старались, ничего у них не получилось. У всех с первых же дней пробуждалась фантазия, и, хотя жизнь текла своим чередом, воображение лишало покоя и навевало тревожные сны. Потому чужаки и спешили уехать, а ведь старый Эмми Пирс не рассказывал им ничего из того, что он помнит о старых временах. С годами Эмми стал совсем чудным, вроде как не в своем уме. Он единственный, кто знает всю правду о прошлом и не боится расспросов, но ему не позавидуешь. Ведь не боится он потому, что его дом стоит на отшибе рядом с полем и проезжими дорогами...»

Description : «Жизнь Пи» произвела настоящий культурный взрыв в мировой интеллектуальной среде. Фантастическое путешествие юноши и бенгальского тигра, описанное в романе, перекликается с повестью «Старик и море», с магическим реализмом Маркеса и с абсурдностью Беккета. Книга стала не только бестселлером, но и символом литературы нового века, флагом новой культуры.
