Troubles

By J.G. Farrell
Authors:
J.G. Farrell
Major Brendan Archer travels to Ireland - to the Majestic Hotel and to the fiancée he acquired on a rash afternoon's leave three years ago. Despite her many letters, the lady herself proves elusive, and the Major's engagement is short-lived. But he is unable to detach himself from the alluring discomforts of the crumbling hotel. Ensconced in the dim and shabby splendour of the Palm Court, surrounded by gently decaying old ladies and proliferating cats, the Major passes the summer. So hypnotic are the faded charms of the Majestic, the Major is almost unaware of the gathering storm. But this is Ireland in 1919 - and the struggle for independence is about to explode with brutal force.

    Triple Platinum

    By Nick Hornby
    Authors:
    Nick Hornby
    FEVER PITCH, winner of the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award, stands as the definitive statement on the obsessive nature of football fandom.¿His triumph is that, without glossing over its large-scale stupidities and discomforts, he makes terrace life seem not just plausible but sometimes near-heroic in its single minded vehemence, its heart shaking highs and lows¿ Independent on SundayHIGH FIDELITY hilariously and movingly explains men to women ¿ and to themselves.¿It is rare that a book so hilarious is also so sharp about sex and manliness, memory and music. Many men ¿ and, certainly, all addictive personalities ¿ will find in these pages shadows of themselves. And most of us will hear, in Hornby¿s acoustic prose, the obsessive chords of the past that more often lock up than liberate our hearts¿ New Yorker ABOUT A BOY explores the connections people make when the so-called ideal family model does not apply. ¿An almost perfect book, hugely entertaining and on the side of the angels . . . About a Boy is laughter in the dark¿ The Times

    The year is 1998, the world is a growing nightmare of desperation, of uncontrollable pollution and increasing social unrest. In Cambridge, two scientists experiment with tachyons - subatomic particles that travel faster than the speed of light and, therefore, according to the Theory of Relativity, may move backwards in time. Their plan is to signal a warning to the previous generation.In 1962, a young Californian scientist, Gordon Bernstein, finds his experiments are being spoiled by unknown interference. As he begins to suspect something near the truth it becomes a race against time - the world is collapsing and will only be saved if Gordon can decipher the message in time.Winner of the Nebula Award for best novel, 1980Winner of the John W. Campbell Award for best novel, 1981Winner of the BSFA Award for best novel, 1980
