  • SELECTED POEMS OF LANGSTON HUGHES

    The poems Hughes wrote celebrated the experience of invisible men and women: of slaves who ‘rushed the boots of Washington’ of musicians on Lenox Avenue; of the poor and the lovesick; of losers in ‘the raffle of night.’ They conveyed that experience in a voice that blended the spoken with the sung, that turned poetic lines into the phrases of jazz and blues, and that ripped through the curtain separating high from popular culture. They spanned the range from the lyric to the polemic, ringing out ‘wonder and pain and terror and the marrow of the bone of life.’

  • THE DOORS OF PERCEPTION

    In 1953, in the presence of an investigator, Aldous Huxley took four-tenths of a gram of mescaline, sat down and waited to see what would happen. When he opened his eyes everything was transformed. Huxley described his experience in this book and its sequel “Heaven and Hell”.

  • TO HAVE AND HAVE NOT

    Harry Morgan is a tough guy making his living during the Depression from his motor boat in Key West, Florida. Although he normally takes out fishing parties, sometimes his boat can be put to other uses. If the money offered is worth his while, Harry will run guns, rum and men to and from Cuba. But he is playing a dicey game. Hemingway’s hardest hero risks not just his living, but his life.

  • THE COLLECTED TALES OF NIKOLAI GOGOL

    When Pushkin first read some of the stories in this collection, he declared himself “amazed.” “Here is real gaiety,” he wrote, “honest, unconstrained, without mincing, without primness. And in places what poetry! . . . I still haven’t recovered.” More than a century and a half later, Nikolai Gogol’s stories continue to delight readers the world over. Now a stunning new translation–from an award-winning team of translators–presents these stories in all their inventive, exuberant glory to English-speaking readers. For the first time, the best of Gogol’s short fiction is brought together in a single volume: from the colorful Ukrainian tales that led some critics to call him “the Russian Dickens” to the Petersburg stories, with their black humor and wonderfully demented attitude toward the powers that be. All of Gogol’s most memorable creations are here: the minor official who misplaces his nose, the downtrodden clerk whose life is changed by the acquisition of a splendid new overcoat, the wily madman who becomes convinced that a dog can tell him everything he needs to know. These fantastic, comic, utterly Russian characters have dazzled generations of readers and had a profound influence on writers such as Dostoevsky and Nabokov. Now they are brilliantly rendered in the first new translation in twenty-five years–one that is destined to become the definitive edition of Gogol’s most important stories.
