Lacná kniha Brilliance of the Moon (-70%)


In the third volume of the phenomenal series that began with the best-selling ACROSS THE NIGHTINGALE FLOOR and then GRASS FOR HIS PILLOW, the teenage lovers, Takeo and Kaede, are now married. But their destinies are determined by forces beyond their control. Takeo leads an army into battle, and Kaede, far from his protection, is treacherously betrayed. Their love will survive until death -- which, in the savage, beautiful world of the Otori, is only ever a lightning sword-stroke away. 'Lian Hearn is creating an imaginary world every bit as absorbing as Middle Earth and Hogwarts ...This is the same mysterious oriental landscape that beguiled Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon audiences' Guardian 'Quite simply the best story of magic, love, sex, revenge and suspense since Philip Pullman.'

Japán szellemei - Válogatott mesék és meditációk


Japán kulturális hagyatéka, hiedelemvilágának, művészetének, legendakincsének gazdagsága és különössége a magát évszázadokig hermetikusan elzáró szigetország kényszerű megnyílásától, az 1850-es évektől kezdve ellenállhatatlan vonzerőt gyakorolt és gyakorol a nyugati szellemre. E hatás egyik jeles példája Lafcadio Hearn műve, amely azonban nem csupán lenyomata, hanem a korábbi századvégen nagy hatású formálója is volt a "japonizmus"-nak. Összeállításunk nemcsak a klasszikus japán mesék, rémmesék, legendák Hearn-féle átdolgozásaiból kínál ízelítőt, hanem tartalmazza Hearnnek a japán lélek, a japán világ egy-egy lényeges elemével foglalkozó legfontosabb esszéit és buddhista szemléletű, sajátos hangulatú kozmikus meditációit is.

Japanese Ghost Stories


The dead wreak revenge on the living, paintings come alive, spectral brides possess mortal men and a priest devours human flesh in these chilling Japanese ghost stories retold by a master of the supernatural. Lafcadio Hearn drew on the phantoms and ghouls of traditional Japanese folklore - including the headless 'rokuro-kubi', the monstrous goblins 'jikininki' or the faceless 'mujina' who stalk lonely neighbourhoods - and infused them with his own memories of his haunted childhood in nineteenth-century Ireland to create these terrifying tales of striking and eerie power. Today they are regarded in Japan as classics in their own right.Edited with an introduction by Paul Murray
