Sara Gruen - Vizet az elefántnak
Bár nem szívesen beszél emlékeiről, ezek makacsul megülik a kilencvenegynéhány éves Jacob Jankowski elméjét. Emlékek saját fiatalkoráról, amikor a sors egy roskatag vonatra vetette, melyen a Benzini testvérek világhíres cirkusza bolyongott Amerikában. Emlékek egy olyan világról, amelyet szörnyszülöttek és bohócok népesítettek be, amely tele volt csodákkal, dühvel, szenvedéssel és szenvedéllyel; egy világról, amelynek megvannak a maga logikátlan szabályai, sajátos életformája, s ahol a halál is a maga módján kopogtat. A cirkusz világa ez, amely Jacob Jankowski számára egyszerre jelentett megváltást és pokoljárást. Jacob azért került be ebbe a világba, mert elhagyta a szerencséje. Árván és egyetlen garas nélkül nem tudta, mihez kezdjen, mígnem rá nem talált erre a gőzerővel hajtott „bolondok hajójára” a nagy gazdasági világválság idején.

Jane Austen - Pride and Prejudice
The Collector's Library in Colour takes the favourite illustrated titles of The Collector's Library and presents them in full colour. Jane Austen's best-loved novel is a memorable story about the inaccuracy of first impressions, about the power of reason, and above all about the strange dynamics of human relationships and emotions. Here, where Hugh Thomson's delightful period illustrations were originally black-and-white, they have been sensitively coloured by Barbara Frith, one of Britain 's most accomplished colourists. A tour de force of wit and sparkling dialogue, Pride and Prejudice shows how the headstrong Elizabeth Bennett and the aristocratic Mr Darcy must have their pride humbled and their prejudices dissolved before they can acknowledge their love for each other." With an Afterword by Henry Hitchings.

The last thing she needs is another complication in her life, but when her old friend Sir Gerald dies and his son, Pierce - accompanied by his glamorous American wife - takes possession of The Big House, it seems that preserving the Fields is not on his list of priorities. Nel takes up arms, determined to fight for the meadow and the market she loves. But whom can she trust? She's pretty sure her friends Sacha and Vivian are on her side, but her sensible boyfriend Simon, an estate agent, is less encouraging.
