Вам и не снилось

Вам и не снилось

«Вам и не снилось» – самая известная повесть Галины Щербаковой, принесшая ей славу благодаря одноименной экранизации Ильи Фрэза. История советских Ромео и Джульетты – влюбленных друг в друга школьников – до сих пор тревожит нас, всякий раз напоминая, что первая любовь – совсем не шутки, а раны от нее могут не зажить никогда… «Мальчик и девочка» – своеобразное продолжение темы «Вам и не снилось», немного скандальное и провокационное, но от этого не менее захватывающее!

The Death of the Heart

The Death of the Heart

«One of the last century’s greatest woman writers». («Guardian»). It is London in the late 1930s and sixteen-year-old orphan Portia is plunged into the sophisticated and politely treacherous world of her wealthy half-brother’s home. Wide-eyed and disconcertingly vulnerable, Portia encounters the attractive, carefree cad Eddie. To him, Portia is at once child and woman, and he fears her gushing love. To her, Eddie is the only reason to be alive. But when Eddie follows Portia to a sea-side resort, the flash of a cigarette lighter in a darkened cinema illuminates a stunning romantic betrayal — and sets in motion one of the most moving and desperate flights of the heart in modern literature.

Это, пожалуй, одна из лучших книг русской литературы ХХ века.

Boyhood Island

A family of four – mother, father and two boys – move to Sorland, to a new house on a new estate. It is the early 1970s, the children are small, the parents young and the future open. But at some point that future happens to them; at some point the future closes.
