    The Broken King Michael Thomas

    • Marketing Copy

      Description
      Michael Thomas’s extraordinary new book,The Broken King, traces the lives of the men in his family against the backdrop of the last century-and-a-half in American history. From Reconstruction to the Jim Crow South and Civil Rights movement, Thomas explores fathers and sons, lovers and beloved, trauma and recovery, race and deracination, success and failure, soccer and the Red Sox in a beautifully unique memoir.

      The title is borrowed from T.S. Eliot’s line in ?Little Gidding”: ?If you came at night like a broken king,” and the work ponders the process of being broken. Reminiscent of James Baldwin’sThe Fire Next Time, Thomas delivers a series of powerful vignettes reaching back to his grandfather who, though trained as a pharmacist, never found work as one; his father, the president of his class at Boston University, an artist and philosopher who was an unsuccessful businessman and a failed parent; to his brother’s lawlessness; and his own sons’ relatively privileged, safe lives in Brooklyn today. Every page rings with the effects of America’s struggle with race, class, wealth, education, land, and tradition, while offering an intimate look at the creative mind under stress?a brave, meticulous articulation of madness in its guises through generations.
      Bio
      Michael Thomas received his BA from Hunter College and his MFA from Warren Wilson College. He is the author of the national best seller,Man Gone Down, winner of the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award and aNew York Times Top Ten Novel of the Year.

      Description
      Pascal Mercier’sNight Train to Lisbon mesmerized readers around the world, and went on to become an international bestseller, establishing Mercier as a breakthrough European literary talent. Now, inLea, he returns with a tender, impassioned, and unforgettable story of a father’s love and a daughter’s ambition in the wake of devastating tragedy.

      It all starts with the death of Martijn van Vliet’s wife. His grief-stricken young daughter, Lea, cuts herself off from the world, lost in the darkness of grief. Then she hears the unfamiliar sound of a violin playing in the hall of a train station, and she is brought back to life. Transfixed by a busker playing Bach, Lea emerges from her mourning, vowing to learn the instrument. And her father, witnessing this delicate spark, promises to do everything and anything in his power to keep herhappy.

      Lea grows into an extraordinary musical talent—her all-consuming passion leads her to become one of the finest players in the country—but as her fame blossoms, her relationship with her father withers. Unable to keep her close, he inadvertently pushes Lea deeper and deeper into this newfound independence and, desperate to hold on to his daughter, Martin is driven to commit an act that threatens to destroy them both.

      A revelatory portrait of genius and madness,Lea delves into the demands of artistic excellence as well as the damaging power of jealousy and sacrifice. Mercier has crafted a novel of intense clarity, illuminating the poignant ways we strive to understand ourselves and our families.
      Bio
      A professor of philosophy,Pascal Mercier was born in 1944 in Bern, Switzerland. He is the author of numerous novels including the bestsellingNight Train to Lisbon andPerlmann’s Silence. He was awarded the Marie Luise Kaschnitz Prize, the Grinzane Cavour Prize, and he received the Lichtenberg Medal. He lives in Berlin, Germany.

      Praise forLea:

      ANew York Times Book Review Paperback Row Selection

      “[A] tale of grief, fraud, guilt and madness . . . Revelatory.”New York Times Book Review

      “[Mercier] brings to life the worlds of people who possess a single-minded focus on the perfection of an idea, a phrase, a game or a note . . . Like his previous novel,Night Train to Lisbon,Lea is full of searing images.”—NPR

      “A psychologically astute portrait of a damaged family . . . For fans of Ian McEwan and Julian Barnes.”Booklist

      “An intense character study that poses significant questions regarding affection and fixation, and the cost each exacts.”Washington Independent Review of Books

      “A passionate tale of finding comfort in the wake of tragedy.”World Literature Today

      “A novella about an artist’s development . . . genius and madness, love and betrayal, fury and self-destruction, all carefully arranged to make a stunning portrait.”Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung

      “Perfectly constructed, exciting, entertaining, enigmatic, memorable.”Buchkultur

      “Although the characters’ feelings become ever more complex and their actions less and less logical, the story itself never feels over-complicated or illogical, let alone sentimental. The frightening depths of the characters’ emotions are crossed by a kind of suspension bridge built by the author.”Neue Zürcher Zeitung

      Praise forNight Train to Lisbon:

      “Rich, dense, star-spangled . . . The novels of Robert Stone come to mind, and Elias Canetti’sAuto-da-Fe, and Thomas Mann’sDeath in Venice, and Kobo Abe’sThe Ruined Map, not to mention Marcus Aurelius and Wittgenstein . . . [but] whatNight Train to Lisbon really suggests isRoads to Freedom, Jean-Paul Sartre’s breathless trilogy about identity-making.” —Harper’s magazine

      “Celebrates the beauty and allure of language . . . adroitly addresses concepts of sacrifice, secrets, memory, loneliness, infatuation, tyranny, and translation. It highlights how little we know about others.” —Chicago Sun-Times

      “The text of Amadeu’s writing is filled not with mere nuggets of wisdom but with a mother lode of insight, introspection, and an honest, self-conscious person’s illuminations of all the dark corners of his own soul.” —Seattle Times

      “Dreamlike . . . A meditative, deliberate exploration of loneliness, language and the human condition . . . rewards readers with the generous gift of beautiful writing and some unforgettable images.” —San Diego Union-Tribune

      “A smart, heartfelt, thoroughly enjoyable book written for thinking adults, and the most recent incarnation, from Hermann Hesse’sSteppenwolf right down to Carlos Ruiz Zafon’sThe Shadow of the Wind, of that potent, ever-popular myth—the book that changes your life.” —Shelf Awareness

      “A compelling blend of suspenseful narrative and discursive commentary . . . an intriguing fiction.” —Kirkus Reviews

      “A meditative novel that builds an uncanny power through a labyrinth of memories and philosophical concepts that illuminate the narrative from within . . . a remarkable immediacy that makes for a rare reading pleasure.” —San Francisco Chronicle

      Praise forPerlmann’s Silence:

      “Absorbing . . . [Mercier] understands the soft sniping that sustains academic rivalries and draws wry comedy from them.” —New Yorker

      “An engrossing deep study of one man’s mind. Superb.” —Evening Standard

      “What might have been, in less talented hands, an amusing literary thriller is, in Mercier’s prose, superbly translated by Shaun Whiteside, something far more complex . . . Mercier’s previous novel to be published here, the deservedly popularNight Train to Lisbon, showed great intelligence and story-telling power;Perlmann’s Silence is a bolder attempt, and reaches greater depths.” —Alberto Manguel,The Guardian (UK)

      “Mercier has a flair for vivid characterization, and has created a personality-rich tapestry of human interaction . . . A hearty feast for the thinking reader . . . an utterly satisfying emotional rollercoaster.” —Nick DiMartino,Shelf Awareness

      “For readers of a philosophical bent, appreciative of slowly unfolding, elegant tales, this will be a pleasure.” —Kirkus Reviews

      Description
      ?This is Burroughs’s most accessible, tightly knit work of fiction. . . . Laid out as a stripped-down movie script it’s almost as if this is the form that Burroughs has always needed.”?Kirkus Reviews

      Before he was gunned down in the Palace Chop House in Newark, New Jersey, in October 1935, Arthur Flegenheimer, alias Dutch Schultz, was generally considered New York’s number one racketeer. Taken to a hospital following the gangland shooting, Schultz survived for two days. His room was guarded around the clock, and a police stenographer was stationed at his bedside in the hope of learning who is assailant or assailants were. Instead, what was recorded were Dutch’s fevered fantasies, stemming from his childhood and youth, as well as his recent past. Taking these ?last words” as a starting point, Burroughs has created in this work a fantasia on Dutch Schultz, a narrative that takes the form of a film script and explores themes including crime, addiction, and power.

      ?Entering Banana Yoshimoto’s fictional world is a little like living as an expatriate in Tokyo?everyday things are disconcertingly different. The exotic lurks around every corner. . . .Amrita is difficult to forget.” ?San Francisco Chronicle

      Banana Yoshimoto’s warm, witty, and heartfelt depictions of the lives of young Japanese have earned her international acclaim and best-seller status, as well as a place among the best of contemporary Japanese literature. InAmrita, now in Grove Press paperback, when a celebrated actress dies under shocking circumstances, she leaves behind an older sister, Sakumi, who suffers from memory loss in the wake of an accident. Struggling to remember whom she loves and what she lost, Sakumi embarks on a unique emotional journey, accompanied by her dead sister’s lover and her clairvoyant kid brother. InAmrita, Yoshimoto proves, once again, her prowess as an imaginative yet grounded storyteller as she takes Sakumi?and readers?on a compelling expedition through grief, dreams, and shadows, to a place of transformation and discovery.

      ?Yoshimoto’s most fully realized work to date. . . . Her firm grasp of her characters, her surefooted prose and her wide-eyed exploration of everything from American pop culture to the Japanese language make this one of the most satisfying books of the summer.” ?Time Out New York

      Praise forAmrita:

      ?Banana Yoshimoto is a master storyteller . . . The sensuality is subtle, masked, and extraordinarily powerful. The language is deceptively simple.”?Chicago Tribune

      ?Entering Banana Yoshimoto’s fictional world is a little like living as an expatriate in Tokyo?everyday things are disconcertingly different. The exotic lurks around every corner . . . What sets Yoshimoto apart, though, is her blunt candor . . .Amrita is difficult to forget.”?San Francisco Chronicle

      ?Ms. Yoshimoto has an effortless ability to penetrate her characters’ hearts.”?New York Times Book Review

      ?Yoshimoto shouldn’t be shy about basking in her celebrity. Her achievements are already legend.”?Boston Globe

      ?Yoshimoto knows the remedial potential of a good, old-fashioned narrative . . . Her characters are immersed in a youth culture that owes more than a little to our notoriously shallow, decadent fin de siècle. They sleep around, eat street ramen, and listen with pleasure to Nirvana, but their lives are also marred by old-fashioned timeless tragedy. They lose their jobs and marry unsuccessfully; the people they love die before their time . . .Yoshimoto has never been afraid of trauma.”?The Nation

      ?This Kundera-esque novel (from the hugely popular Japanese author ofKitchen) is more about the grinding unabatement of everyday life than the shocks that perforate it, and all of its spirits are, mercifully, blithe.”?Entertainment Weekly

      ?In the popular young author’s latest novel, an oddly winsome blend of personal psychology and the paranormal overlay the story of a young woman’s fight to reclaim herself after twin tragedies . . . The earnest, peripatetic confusion of Sakumi’s narrative whisks the reader from one peak moment to another . . . Endearing . . . Will surely fit in any collection where contemporary fiction circulates well.”?Library Journal

      ?All of Yoshimoto’s trademark themes and edgy lyricism are at work in this novel, her most ambitious work to date . . . and many scenes crackle with her hot-wired magic . . . Sakumi, the narrator, is enchantingly muddled, sincere, and full of love for her irregular family . . . [Yoshimoto] spins a mesmerizing and haunting tale.”?Booklist

      Description
      Samuel Beckett began his career by publishing poems in literary reviews in Paris during the 1930s, and?although primarily considered a playwright and novelist?he continued writing poetry throughout his life. This new, definitive volume presents Beckett’s poetry in the order it was composed, from pre-war to post-war, and contains previously unpublished and never-before-reprinted work. Along with his translations of Apollinaire, Mallarme, Rimbaud, and many others, this book brings together all of the pieces fromCollected Poems in English and French, selections fromMexican Poetry: An Anthology (translated by Beckett), and poems that appeared in his novels and plays. Extensive critical notes by editors Seán Lawlor and John Pilling detail the circumstances of their composition, explaining obscure allusions and references (frequently sourced to Beckett's notebooks), and identifying resonances across his oeuvre.

      Poetry allowed Beckett to reconcile his penchant for opulent phrasing with his preference for minimalism, and it profoundly influenced his approach to the drama and fiction for which he’s revered. This complete collection is an informative and essential addition to the libraries of Beckett’s readers.
      Bio
      Samuel Beckett (1906-1989), one of the most important writers in twentieth-century literature and drama, was born in Foxrock, Ireland and attended Trinity College Dublin. In 1969, Beckett was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature and commended for having "transformed the destitution of man into his exaltation."

      Seán Lawlor (1948-2011) was Research Fellow at the Beckett International Foundation at the University of Reading.

      John Pilling is Emeritus Professor of English at the University of Reading, and former editor of theJournal of Beckett Studies. His books includeBeckett Before Godot andA Samuel Beckett Chronology.

      ?Yoshimoto’s elegant, fey touch with such weighty themes as despair and fate, [and] her urban images distilled and shimmering as haiku . . . continue to make her a welcome and uniquely assured voice.” ?Paper magazine

      Banana Yoshimoto’s warm, witty, and heartfelt depictions of the lives of young Japanese have earned her international acclaim and best-seller status, as well as a place among the best of contemporary Japanese literature. InLizard, now available in Grove Press paperback, Yoshimoto deftly fuses traditional and pop culture to create contemporary portraits of love and life. These six tales explore themes of time, healing, and fate?and the journeys of self-discovery through which young urbanites come to terms with them. In ?Newlywed,” an unhappily married young man deliberately misses his stop on the train, only to be questioned by a shape-shifting homeless man about the trials of his marriage. In ?Blood and Water,” a woman recalls how she left the village she grew up in?which was run by a New Age cult?in order to lead a fulfilling life, even against her parents’ wishes. And in the title story, ?Lizard,” a woman who has never before felt truly secure in her life admits a deep secret to her lover?that she has the ability to heal others with her mind. In different ways, these six stories explore what it takes to navigate the perils of the modern world aswell as what it takes to reinvent one’s self. Permeated by the author’s own effervescent spin on magic realism,Lizard cements a special place for Yoshimoto in twentieth-century Japanese fiction.

      ?Earnest, deep, and unaffected. . . . These stories . . . [are] quick and delicate, building, one after another, in a gentle crescendo of understanding and intensity.” ?The New Yorker
