Gordon Agáta - Napfolyókanyar
Gordon Agáta regénye az Irodalmi Centrifuga és a Syllabux Könyvkiadó közös gondozásában. „Fédrával úgy ismerkedtünk meg, ahogyan soha nem volna szabad, és amikor megbeszéltük a következő találkozót, abban is megegyeztünk, hogy a színházban ismertük meg egymást. Engem épp az az előadás érdekelt, amelyben megpillantottam őt, és épp ez után tartott a társulat közös teázást és beszélgetést a nézőkkel. De miért nem lehet, hogy az újságból, kérdezte Fédra, miért olyan snassz ez neked? Amire azt mondtam, hogy csak, és nem is gondoltam rá tovább, hogy milyen szégyenletes a magány, nem ismerni senkit, aki választható vagy aki választhat engem, csak bámulom a nőket a városban, ha rászánom magam, hogy felutazzam. Találkozom az első barátnőmmel, elücsörgök egy presszóban vagy könyvesboltban, rendszeresen elsétálok olyan helyek előtt, ahol tudom, hogy élet van, persze főleg fiúk, de nem éjszaka sétálok arra és egyedül úgyse volna merszem bemenni."
