Every Day Is Like Sunday

by Paul Vlitos

A brilliantly funny rallying cry for anyone who has ever had that sinking Sunday night moment...That Sunday feeling...The weekend's over, there's nothing on TV except for the Antiques Roadshow. The only thing you can do is face the fact that the working week is just around the corner. And for Matt Bletch, the working week is not a prospect to be relished. He's moved to middle of nowhere and taken a job at the only school that would have him. Surrounded by social misfits, clowns and psychopaths (and that's just his fellow teachers) he's left his girlfriend, social life and sanity back in London in the hope of earning some cash and maybe even finishing off his novel in the school holidays.Unfortunately, no one told Matt that a year spent in the dead-end town of Buxdon is unlikely to get the creative juices flowing. Walking through town before the first week of term, everything is grey, damp and smells slightly dubious. Will he ever tempt his girlfriend down to stay? Will the kids lynch him? And will Matt survive a year in the place where every day is like Sunday?

Coal Black Mornings

by Brett Anderson

Brett Anderson came from a world impossibly distant from rock star success, and in Coal Black Mornings he traces the journey that took him from a childhood as 'a snotty, sniffy, slightly maudlin sort of boy raised on Salad Cream and milky tea and cheap meat' to becoming founder and lead singer of Suede.Anderson grew up in Hayward's Heath on the grubby fringes of the Home Counties. As a teenager he clashed with his eccentric taxi-driving father (who would parade around their council house dressed as Lawrence of Arabia, air-conducting his favourite composers) and adored his beautiful, artistic mother. He brilliantly evokes the seventies, the suffocating discomfort of a very English kind of poverty and the burning need for escape that it breeds. Anderson charts the shabby romance of creativity as he travelled the tube in search of inspiration, fuelled by Marmite and nicotine, and Suede's rise from rehearsals in bedrooms, squats and pubs. And he catalogues the intense relationships that make and break bands as well as the devastating loss of his mother.Coal Black Mornings is profoundly moving, funny and intense - a book which stands alongside the most emotionally truthful of personal stories.

Luces de bohemia | Divinas palabras

by Ramón del Valle-Inclán

«Los más jóvenes no se han cansado de proclamar en los últimos años la estricta actualidad de Valle, y ven en los esperpentos la más segura vía de un teatro crítico.» Antonio Buero Vallejo Escritas con pocos meses de diferencia, en 1919 y 1920, después de una prolongada crisis creativa, las dos piezas reunidas en este volumen son unánimemente consideradas la cima del teatro de Valle-Inclán, lo que vale por decir que se cuentan entre las cumbres indiscutibles del teatro español (y europeo) del siglo XX, sobre el que han ejercido una persistente influencia. Por vías distintas -pues sus escenarios respectivos son la Galicia rural y el Madrid de la bohemia modernista-, las dos marcan un punto de inflexión en la trayectoria de su autor, que funda a partir de ellas una estética propia, el esperpento, con la que aspira a captar «el espíritu trágico de la vida española». Reseñas:«Valle-Inclán parece que escribió para nosotros y para quienes vengan después que nosotros, y es al mismo tiempo nuestro predecesor y nuestro contemporáneo.»Antonio Muñoz Molina «Una poderosa inyección vigorizante para la literatura en idioma castellano.»Juan Carlos Onetti «Valle-Inclán, el gran renovador del teatro español del siglo XX.»Ramón Irigoyen, El País

La guerra carlista. Tirano Banderas (Obras completas Valle-Inclán 3)

by Ramón del Valle-Inclán

El segundo volumen con las novelas de uno de los autores más destacados de la España contemporánea: Ramón María del Valle-Inclán. Entre 1908 y 1910, Valle-Inclán se propuso abordar narrativamente el asunto épico por excelencia: la guerra, ofreciendo un cuadro tan amplio como complejo del desarrollo de la tercera y última de las guerras carlistas, en el que quería hacer resonar la voz «de todo un pueblo». Pese a la audacia y los logros de su empeño, Valle desistió de prolongarlo, insatisfecho con su desarrollo. Pasarían más de quince años hasta que viera la luz, en 1926, su siguiente novela, Tirano Banderas, con la que el escritor alcanza una de las cimas de su arte prodigioso, que lo es también de toda la narrativa del siglo XX, en la que inaugura un fecundo linaje: la «novela de dictador». Reseña:«Valle-Inclán se recojía en su lengua, se hundía hasta la raíz en su lengua, le hacía dar flor y fruto a su lengua.»Juan Ramón Jiménez
