"Dead Souls"

Автор(и): Nikolai Gogol
ISBN: 9780241259993

Chichikov, a mysterious stranger, arrives in the provincial town of 'N',visiting a succession of landowners and making each a strange offer. Heproposes to buy the names of dead serfs still registered on the census,saving their owners from paying tax on them, and to use these 'souls' as collateral to re-invent himself as a gentleman. In this ebullient masterpiece, Gogol created a grotesque gallery of human types, from the bear-like Sobakevich to the insubstantial fool Manilov, and, above all, the devilish con man Chichikov. Dead Souls, Russia's first major novel, is one of the most unusual works of nineteenth-century fiction and a devastating satire on social hypocrisy.

"Laughter in the Dark"

Автор(и): Vladimir Nabokov
ISBN: 9780241261248
Albinus - rich, married, middle-aged and respectable - is an art critic and aspiring filmmaker who lusts after the coquettish young cinema usherette Margot. Gradually he seduces her and convinces himself he is irresistible to her, but Margot has other plans. She wants to be a film star, and when Albinus introduces her to the American movie producer Axel Rex, she sees her chance - and plotting, duplicity and tragedy ensue. Deadpan and devilishly funny, Laughter in the Dark is a tense, teasing account of lust, infatuation and self-deception.
