Voices in the Night
33,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Beloved for the lens of the strange he places on small-town life, Steven Millhauser further reveals in Voices in the Night the darkest parts of our inner selves to brilliant and dazzling effect. Here are stories of wondrously imaginative hyperrealism, stories that pose unsettling what-ifs or that find barely perceivable evils within the safe boundaries of our towns, homes, and even our bodies. Here, too, are stories culled from religion and fables: from Samuel, who in the masterly 'A Voice in the Night' hears the voice of God calling him in the night; to a young, pre-enlightenment Buddha; to Rapunzel and her Prince awakened only to everyday disappointment. Heightened by magic, the divine, and the uncanny, shot through with sly humour, Voices in the Night seamlessly combines the whimsy and surprise of the familiar with intoxicating fantasies that take us beyond our daily lives, all done with the hallmark sleight of hand and astonishing virtuosity of one of our greatest modern storytellers.

Reynard the Fox and Other Fables
15,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

'Some folks say Reynard the Fox is a rascal. They will tell you he is sly, and up to all sorts of tricks. He prowls around at night, smelling the air with his long nose, and listening with his long ears; and when he has done prowling, you may be pretty sure he is not as hungry as when he set out.' So begins 'How Reynard the Fox Fooled the Raven,' the first of these eighteen enchanting stories. The adventures of Reynard, the great folkloric trickster, along with those of other animals are charmingly adapted by William Trowbridge Larned from Jean de La Fontaine's classic fables. Striking color illustrations by artist John Rae enhance 'The Tortoise and the Hare,' 'Jocko the Monkey and Mouser the Cat,' 'The City Mouse and the Country Mouse,' 'The Grasshopper Goes to the Ant,' and other timeless tales.
