Lauren Graham - Someday, ​Someday, Maybe
From ​Lauren Graham, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, comes a witty, charming, and hilariously relatable debut novel about a struggling young actress trying to get ahead―and keep it together―in New York City. It’s January 1995, and Franny Banks has just six months left of the three-year deadline she set for herself when she came to New York, dreaming of Broadway and doing “important” work. But all she has to show for her efforts so far is a part in an ad for ugly Christmas sweaters, and a gig waiting tables at a comedy club. Her roommates―her best friend Jane, and Dan, an aspiring sci-fi writer―are supportive, yet Franny knows a two-person fan club doesn’t exactly count as success. Everyone tells her she needs a backup plan, and though she can almost picture moving back home and settling down with her perfectly nice ex-boyfriend, she’s not ready to give up on her goal of having a career like her idols Diane Keaton and Meryl Streep. Not just yet. But while she dreams of filling their shoes, in the meantime, she’d happily settle for a speaking part in almost anything—and finding a hair product combination that works. Everything is riding on the upcoming showcase for her acting class, where she’ll finally have a chance to perform for people who could actually hire her. And she can’t let herself be distracted by James Franklin, a notorious flirt and the most successful actor in her class, even though he’s suddenly started paying attention. Meanwhile, her bank account is rapidly dwindling, her father wants her to come home, and her agent doesn’t return her calls. But for some reason, she keeps believing that she just might get what she came for. Someday, Someday, Maybe is a story about hopes and dreams, being young in a city, and wanting something deeply, madly, desperately. It’s about finding love, finding yourself, and perhaps most difficult of all in New York City, finding an acting job.

Steven Callaghan - Family ​Guy - Stewie kézikönyve a világuralomhoz
Stewie ​Griffin, az egyéves mániákus csecsemőzseni tisztán látja, mi a baj a világgal. Piszkosul elszánt, máris szervezi a puccsot, mely az abszolút világhatalomhoz segíti. Az első zsarnok az eltakarítandók listáján az édesanyja, Lois, a „nőuralom” vezére, aki elviselhetetlenné teszi Stewie ifjonti életét. Szerepelnek persze mások is azon a listán... A fenébe, ha már önállóan tudná használni kezét-lábát, nem szorulna pelenkázásra, és nem kellene cumisüvegből táplálkoznia, rég átvette volna az uralmat a harmadik világ nagyobbik fele fölött. De már totyisként is jól tudja: a totális uralomhoz előbb meg kell érteni azt a világot. Tehát értékes gondolatait könyvbe foglalta: elmélkedik munkáról, politikáról, vallásról, családról, szerelemről, gyerekkorról, nevelésről, oktatásról és sok egyébről. Erről álmodnak az anarchisták! Stewie fanyar kézikönyve a világuralomhoz maga a tehetséges ifjú Stewie a legjavából.

David Simon - Homicide
From ​the creator of HBO's _The Wire_, the classic book about homicide investigation that became the basis for the hit television show The scene is Baltimore. Twice every three days another citizen is shot, stabbed, or bludgeoned to death. At the center of this hurricane of crime is the city's homicide unit, a small brotherhood of hard men who fight for whatever justice is possible in a deadly world. David Simon was the first reporter ever to gain unlimited access to a homicide unit, and this electrifying book tells the true story of a year on the violent streets of an American city. The narrative follows Donald Worden, a veteran investigator; Harry Edgerton, a black detective in a mostly white unit; and Tom Pellegrini, an earnest rookie who takes on the year's most difficult case, the brutal rape and murder of an eleven-year-old girl. Originally published fifteen years ago, _Homicide_ became the basis for the acclaimed television show of the same name. This new edition--which includes a new introduction, an afterword, and photographs--revives this classic, riveting tale about the men who work on the dark side of the American experience.

Parti Nagy Lajos - Fülkefor ​és vidéke
,,Egyszer ​volt, hol nem volt, avvót, hogy mán szabad választások keretibe kitakarodtak a magyarok fődjirűl a tatárok, oszt I. Fülkefor lett a kerál. Vót es öröm, vígan zakatót a Nemzeti Együttműködés Rendszere, Rolex karóra se jobban. Még pár bakarasz, pár csipisz iramodás, oszt eppoly jó lesz minékünk, mint Kádár apánk alatt az annóba, teprenkedett a nép, mer mind azt látta a keráli tévébe, hogy siker hág sikerre, sarkalat sarkalatra, és kalap. Rendes, istenfélő magyar nép vót, nem úgy, mint az előző, emmán tutta, hogy csak az lessz, ami bé vagyon ígérve, megszorítás penig nem vót, amíg meg nem haltak." Ez a könyv az első évet, az első 53 írást tartalmazza abból a sorozatból, amit 2011 áprilisában kezdtem el írni az Élet és Irodalom Páratlan oldalán, Magyar mesék címmel. Ezek természetesen álmesék, a népmese bizonyos elemeit, nyelvét imitáló teherbíró kisformák, abszurdok a rögvaló abszurditásáról, hazanzák, glosszák a helyzet margójára. Okom bőven volt rájuk, célom velük csak annyiban, hogy egy hagyományos, mégis szabad műformába ,,becsatornázzam" az írói, állampolgári köz-érzetemet.

Spiró György - Kerengő
Az ​író - regényéről: "Ennek a regénynek az ötletéből először húszéves koromban írtam novellát. A barátaimnak tetszett, és Utassy József azt mondta: »Jó, hogy ez egyszer meg van írva. Belenyúltál Ady torkába, és megmarkoltad a szívét.« Nem sokkal ezután abbahagytam a novellák gyártását, úgy találtam, hogy nincs novella-szemem. Pár évvel később drámát kezdtem írni az ötletből. Az első felvonás fele már készen volt, amikor feljött hozzám egyik barátom, akinek orvos létére kegyetlenül biztos az ízlése, elolvasta, elszörnyedt, és rám parancsolt, hogy azonnal hagyjam abba. Abbahagytam. Nem hittem volna, hogy egyszer, számomra a legváratlanabbul, regény lesz belőle, és még kevésbé gondoltam, hogy már nem sok köze lesz Adyhoz. Azt hiszem, első regényből főleg az derül ki, mit tekint az író hagyományának. Meggyőződésem, hogy mindent ott kell folytatni, ahol a legnagyobbak abbahagyták. Persze az ő minőségükhöz nagyon nehéz felvergődni. Nekem még nem sikerült. De, mert nehéz, megpróbálom. Ezek után talán érdekli az olvasót, mi történt egy magyar kisvárosban 1899 decemberének elején, kedden."

John Le Carré - A ​Most Wanted Man
New ​spies with new loyalties, old spies with old ones; terror as the new mantra; decent people wanting to do good but caught in the moral maze; all the sound, rational reasons for doing the inhuman thing; the recognition that we cannot safely love or pity and remain good "patriots" -- this is the fabric of John le Carré's fiercely compelling and current novel A Most Wanted Man. A half-starved young Russian man in a long black overcoat is smuggled into Hamburg at dead of night. He has an improbable amount of cash secreted in a purse around his neck. He is a devout Muslim. Or is he? He says his name is Issa. Annabel, an idealistic young German civil rights lawyer, determines to save Issa from deportation. Soon her client's survival becomes more important to her than her own career -- or safety. In pursuit of Issa's mysterious past, she confronts the incongruous Tommy Brue, the sixty-year-old scion of Brue Frères, a failing British bank based in Hamburg. Annabel, Issa and Brue form an unlikely alliance -- and a triangle of impossible loves is born. Meanwhile, scenting a sure kill in the "War on Terror," the rival spies of Germany, England and America converge upon the innocents. Thrilling, compassionate, peopled with characters the reader never wants to let go, A Most Wanted Man is a work of deep humanity and uncommon relevance to our times.

Zadie Smith - White ​Teeth
One ​of the most talked about fictional debuts of recent years, _White Teeth_ is a funny, generous, big-hearted novel, adored by critics and readers alike. Dealing - among many other things - with friendship, love, war, three cultures and three families over three generations, one brown mouse, and the tricky way the past has of coming back and biting you on the ankle, it is a life-affirming, riotous must-read of a book.

Tom Rachman - The ​Imperfectionists
‘Off ​the record, who is it?’ He hesitates. ‘I don’t see why you need to know.’ But he does see, of course. ‘It’s my son.’ Their chuckles are audible over the speakerphone. ‘Are you serious?’ Lloyd Burko is having troubles with his sources, with his technology at the paper, and with his family. Deadline is closing in and he is falling apart. The Imperfectionists is a novel about the quirky, maddening, endearing people who write and read an international newspaper based in Rome: from the obituary reporter who will do anything to avoid work, to the young freelancer who is manipulated by an egocentric war correspondent, to the dog-obsessed publisher who seems less interested in his struggling newspaper than in his magnificent basset hound, Schopenhauer. With war in Afghanistan and Iraq, the climate in meltdown and bin Laden still in hiding, the paper has plenty to fill its columns. But for its staff, the true front-page stories are their own private lives. As this imperfect bunch stumbles along, the era of high terror and high tech bears down, the characters collide, and the novel hurtles toward its climax...

Jeffrey Eugenides - Middlesex
"I ​was born twice: first, as a baby girl, on a remarkably smogless Detroit day of January 1960; and then again, as a teenage boy, in an emergency room near Petoskey, Michigan, in August of 1974. . . My birth certificate lists my name as Calliope Helen Stephanides. My most recent driver’s license...records my first name simply as Cal." So begins the breathtaking story of Calliope Stephanides and three generations of the Greek-American Stephanides family who travel from a tiny village overlooking Mount Olympus in Asia Minor to Prohibition-era Detroit, witnessing its glory days as the Motor City, and the race riots of l967, before they move out to the tree-lined streets of suburban Grosse Pointe, Michigan. To understand why Calliope is not like other girls, she has to uncover a guilty family secret and the astonishing genetic history that turns Callie into Cal, one of the most audacious and wondrous narrators in contemporary fiction. Lyrical and thrilling, Middlesex is an exhilarating reinvention of the American epic.

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.

Stephen Chbosky - The ​Perks of Being a Wallflower
Standing ​on the fringes of life... offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor. This haunting novel about the dilemma of passivity vs. passion marks the stunning debut of a provocative new voice in contemporary fiction: The Perks of Being a Wallflower. This is the story of what it's like to grow up in high school. More intimate than a diary, Charlie's letters are singular and unique, hilarious and devastating. We may not know where he lives. We may not know to whom he is writing. All we know is the world he shares. Caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it puts him on a strange course through uncharted territory. The world of first dates and mixed tapes, family dramas and new friends. The world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. Through Charlie, Stephen Chbosky has created a deeply affecting coming-of-age story, a powerful novel that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller coaster days known as growing up.

Lilith Saintcrow - Az ​Ördög szolgálatában
„Munkakapcsolatom ​Luciferrel egy esős hétfői napon kezdődött” – mondja Dante Valentine – a némi öngyilkos hajlammal is felszerelkezett kőkemény, őrült és rámenős fejvadásznő –, aki nem önként áll az ördög szolgálatába. Jól megérdemelt nyugalomra vágyik, amikor a sötétség fejedelme visszautasíthatatlan ajánlattal kínálja meg: le kell vadásznia a pokolból szökött Vardimal Santinót, és cserébe Lucifer meghagyja az életét… Az ajánlatban mindössze egy kisebb csapda van: hogyan öljsz meg valakit, aki halhatatlan? Dante szövetségese csupán egy megbízhatatlan démon, és egy kis csoportnyi pszion, de nem is barátokra, inkább csodára van szüksége, ha le akar számolni Santinóval… Az első pokoli nap Dante Valentine nekromanta és fejvadász életében. Folytatása következik…

Vig György - Ellenségek ​közt

Juhász Katalin - Kiss Géza - Pintér Zoltán - Rózsa Endre - Szénási Lászlóné - Szőlősi Irén - Tóth József - Kissné Nagy Éva - Nagy Zoltán - Alapismereti ​kislexikon
A ​szerzők törekvése szerint a lexikon tartalmazza mindazokat a fontos fogalmakat, elméleti ismereteket, amelyek az általános iskolában - nem okvetlenül csak az ismert tankönyvekben - előfordulhatnak. Az általános műveltséghez biztosan hozzátartozik e könyvnek a tartalma, ezért nemcsak azoknak ajánljuk, akik most végzik tanulmányaikat, hanem azoknak is, akik úgy érzik, hogy fel kell frissíteni emlékezetüket, tudásukat. Így szerepelnek biológiai, fizikai, földrajzi, irodalmi, kémiai, közgazdasági, matematikai, történelmi, művészeti és számítástechnikai fogalmak, ismeretek. A terjedelmi korlátok miatt az egyes szakterületek tudománytörténetileg is kiemelkedő művelőit említhettük csak meg és sajnos el kellett hagynunk pl. a technikával, politológiával, sporttal kapcsolatos fogalmakat, kiemelkedő személyeket.

Ian McEwan - Atonement
In ​this rich novel by the author of the Booker Prize-winning novel "Amsterdam", a young girl unwittingly tells a tale that turns her family upside down. Brilliant and utterly enthralling in its depiction of childhood, love and war, England and class, "Atonement" is at its center a profound--and profoundly moving--exploration of shame and forgiveness, of atonement and the difficulty of absolution.

Jonathan Franzen - The ​Corrections
The ​Corrections is a grandly entertaining novel for the new century-a comic, tragic masterpiece about a family breaking down in an age of easy fixes. After almost fifty years as a wife and mother, Enid Lambert is ready to have some fun. Unfortunately, her husband, Alfred, is losing his sanity to Parkinson's disease, and their children have long since flown the family nest to the catastrophes of their own lives. The oldest, Gary, a once-stable portfolio manager and family man, is trying to convince his wife and himself, despite clear signs to the contrary, that he is not clinically depressed. The middle child, Chip, has lost his seemingly secure academic job and is failing spectacularly at his new line of work. And Denise, the youngest, has escaped a disastrous marriage only to pour her youth and beauty down the drain of an affair with a married man - or so her mother fears. Desperate for some pleasure to look forward to, Enid has set her heart on an elusive goal: bringing her family together for one last Christmas at home. Stretching from the Midwest at midcentury to the Wall Street and Eastern Europe of today, The Corrections brings an old-fashioned world of civic virtue and sexual inhibitions into violent collision with the era of home surveillance, hands-off parenting, do-it-yourself mental healthcare, and globalized greed. Richly realistic, darkly hilarious, deeply humane, it confirms Jonathan Franzen as one of our most brilliant interpreters of American society and the American soul.

Jonathan Franzen - Freedom
From ​the National Book Award-winning author of The Corrections, a darkly comedic novel about family Patty and Walter Berglund were the new pioneers of old St. Paul - the gentrifiers, the hands-on parents, the avant-garde of the Whole Foods generation. Patty was the ideal sort of neighbor, who could tell you where to recycle your batteries and how to get the local cops to actually do their job. She was an enviably perfect mother and the wife of Walter's dreams. Together with Walter - environmental lawyer, commuter cyclist, total family man - she was doing her small part to build a better world. But now, in the new millennium, the Berglunds have become a mystery. Why has their teenage son moved in with the aggressively Republican family next door? Why has Walter taken a job working with Big Coal? What exactly is Richard Katz - outré rocker and Walter's college best friend and rival - still doing in the picture? Most of all, what has happened to Patty? Why has the bright star of Barrier Street become 'a very different kind of neighbor,' an implacable Fury coming unhinged before the street's attentive eyes? In his first novel since The Corrections, Jonathan Franzen has given us an epic of contemporary love and marriage. Freedom comically and tragically captures the temptations and burdens of liberty: the thrills of teenage lust, the shaken compromises of middle age, the wages of suburban sprawl, the heavy weight of empire. In charting the mistakes and joys of Freedom's intensely realized characters as they struggle to learn how to live in an ever more confusing world, Franzen has produced an indelible and deeply moving portrait of our time.
