Wilkie Collins - The Moonstone
The Moonstone, a yellow diamond looted from an Indian temple and believed to bring bad luck to its owner, is bequeathed to Rachel Verinder on her eighteenth birthday. That very night the priceless stone is stolen again and when Sergeant Cuff is brought in to investigate the crime, he soon realizes that no one in Rachel's household is above suspicion. Hailed by T. S. Eliot as 'the first, the longest, and the best of modern English detective novels', _The Moonstone_ is a marvellously taut and intricate tale of mystery, in which facts and memory can prove treacherous and not everyone is as they first appear.

Attila József - Winter Night

Thrown amongst these loose cannons is a widowed beauty who practices "conspicuous polyandry," an unfocused psychiatrist, an unbelieving chaplain, and a charming alcoholic. "Amis delights in combining espionage, violence, love and religious skepticism. Such disparate elements, like dishpans and fire rings, challenge his juggler's dexterity. Who wins? The reader!"

As Dr. David Throckmartin gasps out the horrible climax to the story of his expedition among the ruins of an ancient Pacific civilization, Dr. Walter Goodwin listens to his incredible tale, certain that the great scientist has gone mad. For he has told of how his young bride Edith and other members of his exploring party were spirited away by the unearthly androgynous Dweller of the Moon Pool - a "thing" that arises at the full moon from the wailed ruins of an ancient Polynesian culture and manifests itself amid the faint chanting of voices, a drifting, undulating, crystalline chiming, and a glittering cluster of palely colored lights. Its embrace induces feelings of both rapture and terror in its prey, a state that Throckmartin describes was "as though the icy soul of evil and the fiery soul of good had stepped together within me." Bearing the peculiar small white mark of the Shining One, Throckmartln had miraculously escaped the fate of his friends. And then, before Goodwin's eyes, aboard the ship that is bearing them both across the Southern seas beneath another full moon, Throckmartin disappears in the glistening embrace of the pursuing Dweller of the Moon Pool. Determined to solve the rnystery of the Moon Pool and learn the fate of Throckmartin and his party, Goodwin sets out on an expedition that includes among its members an Irish air ace named Larry O'Keefe, a huge modern Viking named Olaf Huldricksson, and a sinister Soviet scientist named Marakinoff. Following Throckmartin's directions to the island ruins, the party plunges into a fantastic adventure at the site of the Moon Pool that is an imaginative tour de force seldom equalled in science fiction.

But recently, her behavior has been erratic and her drawings match, with stunning accuracy, the brittle pages of a Portuguese print dating back to 1642 . . . a drawing of an ancient lost city. A new expedition -- along with Amy -- is sent into the Congo where they enter a secret world, and the only way out may be through a horrifying death . . .

F. Scott Fitzgerald - The Great Gatsby
The exemplary novel of the Jazz Age, F. Scott Fitzgeralds' third book, The Great Gatsby (1925), stands as the supreme achievement of his career. T. S. Eliot read it three times and saw it as the "first step" American fiction had taken since Henry James; H. L. Mencken praised "the charm and beauty of the writing," as well as Fitzgerald's sharp social sense; and Thomas Wolfe hailed it as Fitzgerald's "best work" thus far. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when, The New York Times remarked, "gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession," it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s that resonates with the power of myth. A novel of lyrical beauty yet brutal realism, of magic, romance, and mysticism, The Great Gatsby is one of the great classics of twentieth-century literature.
