Meet Austin, an eighteen-year-old whose body is much more fragile than his spirit. Despite the painful effects of osteogenesis imperfecta—a rare disease that makes bones brittle and prone to break—and the challenges of living with autism, Austin is an overcomer who inspires everyone he meets. The Unbreakable Boy is the raucously tender story of Austin’s joyful embrace of life’s tragedies and triumphs. In honest, utterly real storytelling, Scott pulls back the curtain of his life to reveal personal and family struggles, from marital meltdowns to destructive bouts with addiction. The only thing that keeps Scott buckled into this ride is his growing faith in God and the conviction that he was chosen as Austin’s dad. With every twist, this father-son saga breathes hope in to all of us who ever feel overwhelmed, wondering if the end of the rope we’re clinging to is fraying in our hands. Austin’s life is proof positive that the rope may break, but we don’t have to.

Četrnaest godina nakon „Korekcija“ i pet godina nakon „Slobode“ Franzen je napisao još jedan velik roman, „najintimniji dosad, u kojem je svojem glasu dodao neke nove tonove“. The New York Times „Čistoća“, naslov novog romana Jonathana Franzena, ujedno je i značenje imena glavne junakinje (Purity) i koncept koji zadobiva mnoge oblike u romanu. Purity Pip Tyler živi kao skvoterica u Oaklandu, opterećena je studentskim kreditom, a jedina joj je obitelj majka. Odrasla gotovo u izolaciji, ne zna majčin pravi identitet ni tko joj je otac i boji se da nikad neće imati normalan život. Druženje s anarhistima iz Njemačke odvodi Pip u Južnu Ameriku gdje počinje raditi kao pripravnica u Sunčanom projektu, hakerskoj skupini sličnoj WikiLeaksu. Pip se nada da će tamo otkriti tajnu svoga podrijetla. Na čelu grupacije karizmatični je Andreas Wolf, koji je mladost proveo u Istočnoj Njemačkoj i proslavio se u vrijeme pada Berlinskoga zida. Premda mnogo stariji od nje, Wolf pokazuje naklonost prema Pip i između njih se razvija poseban i intenzivan odnos. Ova se priča grana u prošlost i sadašnjost, u sedam povezanih dijelova knjige koji su ispripovijedani kroz prizme različitih likova. Pri tom Franzen stvara svijet originalnih i nezaboravnih likova – novinari, leakeri, ljubavnici i supružnici, loši pisci, karijeristi, tragičari. Gotovo svaki lik u romanu traži “čistoću” u nekom obliku, a propitivanje istine i laži, čistog i zagađenog događa se na mnogim razinama njihove egzistencije i međusobnih odnosa. „Čistoća“ je zamršen, ali savršeno kontroliran roman o velikim temama (život u komunizmu i pad Istočnog bloka, ogoljavanje privatnosti u eri interneta, korupcijske afere u visokoj politici, toksičnost kulture opsjednute slavom). No ipak, u samom srcu romana pulsiraju puno intimniji problemi i teme: propali brakovi, slomljena prijateljstva, mučna djetinjstva, seksualne fantazije i perverzije, trenuci kad se suočavamo s vlastitim demonima, ludilom i kaosom. Svi likovi u romanu nose neku svoju tajnu, sram i krivnju, a sâm Franzen “Čistoću” je nazvao knjigom o našim modricama i povredama. Ovim romanom Franzen je još jedanput pokazao da je izuzetan pripovjedač koji proniče u bolne točke današnjice i naše egzistencije, snažno, duhovito i s profinjenom dozom ironije.

ظل يُقال لنا طيلة عشرات السنوات إن التفكير الإيجابي هو المفتاح إلى حياة سعيدة ثرية. لكن مارك مانسون يشتم تلك " الإيجابية " ويقول: " فلنكن صادقين، السيء سيء وعلينا أن نتعايش مع هذا ". لا يتهرّب مانسون من الحقائق ولا يغفلها بالسكّر، بل يقولها لنا كما هي: جرعة من الحقيقة الفجِّة الصادقة المنعشة هي ما ينقصنا اليوم. هذا الكتاب ترياق للذهنية التي نهدهد أنفسنا بها، ذهنية " فلنعمل على أن يكون لدينا كلنا شعور طيب " التي غزت المجتمع المعاصر فأفسدت جيلًا بأسره صار ينال ميداليات ذهبية لمجرد الحضور إلى المدرسة. ينصحنا مانسون بأن نعرف حدود إمكاناتنا وأن نتقبلها. وأن ندرك مخاوفنا ونواقصنا وما لسنا واثقين منه، وأن نكفّ عن التهرب والفرار من ذلك كله ونبدأ مواجهة الحقائق الموجعة، حتى نصير قادرين على العثور على ما نبحث عنه من جرأة ومثابرة وصدق ومسؤولية وتسامح وحب للمعرفة. لا يستطيع كل شخص أن يكون متميزًا متفوقًا. ففي المجتمع ناجحين وفاشلين؛ وقسم من هذا الواقع ليس عادلًا وليس نتيجة غلطتك أنت. وصحيح أن المال شيء حسن، لكن اهتمامك بما تفعله بحياتك أحسن كثيرًا؛ فالتجربة هي الثروة الحقيقية. إنها لحظة حديث حقيقي صادق لشخص يمسكك من كتفيك وينظر في عينيك. هذا الكتاب صفعة " منعشة لهذا الجيل حتى تساعده في عيش حياة راضية مستقرة.

"Told with such humour and suspense that it's hard to put down...A rare achievement, an unstintingly honest, hilarious, and dreadful delight." -- Globe and Mail Greer Pentland is having a challenging year. Her teenaged son, Sam, is on trial for the murder of two senior citizens, a crime allegedly committed while he was sleepwalking. Greer is also battling breast cancer, a disease that has left her with a litany of physical side effects and deep anger toward the incompetence of the medical profession. Yet, in the face of all these obstacles, Greer's story is full of hope and delicious dark humour. Her indelible strength is fuelled by her unconditional love for her son and the moral support she receives from her 88-year-old aunt, a chain-smoking, vodka-swilling, vitamin-popping senior whose continual commentary on the morbid news of the day is wickedly funny and provocative. This novel about one courageous woman's fight to survive in a post-millennium culture gone mad is heroic, heart stopping, and affecting. The Barking Dog, the fifth novel from Cordelia Strube, Canada's pre-eminent writer of urban fiction, is an unforgettable portrait of modern life in these media-saturated, apocalyptic times.
