100 Strokes of the Brush Before Bed

Мелисса П.

An instant blockbuster in Italy where it has sold over 700,000 copies, and now an international literary phenomenon, 100 Strokes of the Brush Before Bed is the fictionalized memoir of Melissa P., a Sicilian teenager whose quest for love rapidly devolves into a shocking journey of sexual discovery. Melissa begins her diary a virgin, but a stormy affair at the age of fourteen leads her to regard sex as a means of self-discovery, and for the next two years she plunges into a succession of encounters with various partners, male and female, her age and much older, some met through schoolmates, others through newspaper ads and Internet chat rooms. In graphic detail she describes her entry into a Dante-esque underworld of eroticism, where she willingly participates in group sex and sadomasochism, as well as casual pickups. Melissa's secret life is concealed from family and friends, revealed only in her diary entries. Told with disarming candor, Melissa P.'s bittersweet tour of extreme desires…


100-те най-влиятелни личности в историята на човечеството

Майкъл Харт

Какво представлява тази книга Това е сборник от биографии на велики личности, който се различава от всички други подобни енциклопедии. Хората в него са подредени не по азбучен или по хронологичен ред, а по значимостта на тяхното дело. Критерият е доколко те са повлияли на хода на историята и на живота на всеки човек. Подобна класация е колкото амбициозна, толкова и спорна. Всяка епоха неизбежно прави своята преоценка на миналото. Затова и второто издание от 1992 г., от което е направен преводът, се различава донякъде от първото през 1978 г. Личности…

IN NOVEMBER 22, 1963, THREE SHOTSRANG OUT IN DALLAS, PRESIDENTKENNEDY DIED, AND THE WORLD CHANGED.WHAT IF YOU COULD CHANGE IT BACK? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen Kingwho has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writertakes readers on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it. It begins with Jake Epping, a thirty-five-year-old English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching GED classes.

1222

Анне Хольт

As the snow fell – and kept falling – it seemed like fate [well, at least it would have done if I believed in fate!] that I should be reading a book in which the cast of characters find themselves trapped in a remote and mountainous Norwegian hotel after a heavy storm of, you guessed it, snow. It should be pointed out that this snowstorm is considered extreme even by Norwegian standards, and far outstrips the few inches of snow that is currently sitting outside my window [I’d imagine that most Scandinavians find Britain’s inability to cope with snow highly amusing]. When the train they are travelling on crashes, the 269 passengers are forced to take refuge in a nearby hotel, Finse 1222 [the numbers are a reference to its elevation above sea level]. But upon waking the next morning, the group discovers that one of their number – a priest – has been murdered during the night and left in a snowdrift outside the hotel. Soon the feeling of togetherness and community that had bonded…
