The Republic of Gilead offers Offred only one function: to breed. If she deviates, she will, like dissenters, be hanged at the wall or sent out to die slowly of radiation sickness. But even a repressive state cannot obliterate desire - neither Offred's nor that of the two men on which her future hangs.

Brilliantly conceived and executed, this powerful evocation of twenty-first century America gives full rein to Margaret Atwood's devastating irony, wit and astute perception.

Aldous Huxley's 1932 dystopian classic Brave New World predicts - with eerie clarity - a terrifying vision of the future, which feels ever closer to our own reality.

'The best science fiction book ever, definitely the most prescient?'
Yuval Noah Harari, author of Sapiens and Homo Deus

'A masterpiece of speculation... As vibrant, fresh, and somehow shocking as it was when I first read it' Margaret Atwood

Far in the future, the World Controllers have created the ideal society. Through clever use of genetic engineering, brainwashing and recreational sex and drugs all its members are happy consumers. Bernard Marx seems alone harbouring an ill-defined longing to break free. A visit to one of the few remaining Savage Reservations where the old, imperfect life still continues, may be the cure for his distress...

Huxley's ingenious fantasy of the future sheds a blazing light on the present and is considered to be his most enduring masterpiece.

WITH INTRODUCTIONS BY MARGARET ATWOOD AND DAVID BRADSHAW

A grave warning... Provoking, stimulating, shocking and dazzling'

Was bedeutet es, eine Frau und Mutter zu sein - und dabei eigene Wege gehen zu wollen? Mit frappierender Ehrlichkeit ergründet Elena Ferrante die widersprüchlichen Gefühle, die uns an unsere Kinder binden. Und zeigt uns die rätselhafte Schönheit und Brutalität dessen, was unser Leben ist. Ein heißer Sommer an der süditalienischen Küste, Leda - knapp fünfzig, allein lebend, Mutter zweier erwachsener Töchter - verbringt unbeschwerte Tage am Strand. Sie vertreibt sich die Zeit damit, eine junge Mutter und deren kleines Mädchen zu beobachten, die innig vor sich hin spielen. Doch plötzlich verdüstert sich das Idyll und die sonst so beherrschte Leda lässt sich zu einer unbegreiflichen Tat hinreißen ...»[Elena Ferrante] weist auf die widersprüchlichen Gefühle hin, die Eltern an Kinder binden. Spannend zu lesen.«

Adina wuchs als letzter Teenager ihres Dorfs im tschechischen Riesengebirge auf. Bei einem Sprachkurs in Berlin lernt sie die Fotografin Rickie kennen, die ihr ein Praktikum in einem neu entstehenden Kulturhaus in der Uckermark vermittelt. Nach einem sexuellen Übergriff durch einen westdeutschen Kulturpolitiker strandet Adina nach einer Irrfahrt durch halb Europa in Helsinki. Dort wird Leonides, ein estnischer Politikwissenschaftler und Abgeordneter der EU, zunächst zu ihrem Halt. Während er sich für die Menschenrechte stark macht, sucht Adina einen Ausweg aus dem inneren Exil. 

»Blaue Frau« erzählt aufwühlend vom Ringen um persönliche Integrität einer jungen Frau, unterwegs zwischen Tschechien und Finnland, Estland und Deutschland. In ihren Erfahrungen spiegeln sich auch die jüngsten Machtverhältnisse zwischen Ost- und Westeuropa.

sie beherrscht die Kunst, das im Grunde Unerzählbare ohne große Worte zu thematisieren.

A Clockwork Orange is the daring and electrifying book by Anthony Burgess that inspired one of the most notorious films ever made, beautifully repackaged as part of the Penguin Essentials range.

'What's it going to be then, eh?'

In this nightmare vision of youth in revolt, fifteen-year-old Alex and his friends set out on a diabolical orgy of robbery, rape, torture and murder. Alex is jailed for his teenage delinquency and the State tries to reform him - but at what cost?

Social prophecy? Black comedy? Study of freewill? A Clockwork Orange is all of these. It is also a dazzling experiment in language, as Burgess creates a new language - 'nadsat', the teenage slang of a not-too-distant future.

'Every generation should discover this book' Time Out

'A gruesomely witty cautionary tale' Time

'Not only about man's violent nature and his capacity to choose between good and evil. It is about the excitements and intoxicating effects of language' Daily Telegraph

'I do not know of any other writer who has done as much with language...a very funny book' William S. Burroughs

'One of the cleverest and most original writers of his generation' The Times

Anthony Burgess was born in Manchester in 1917. He studied English at Manchester University and joined the army in 1940 where he spent six years in the Education Corps. After demobilization, he worked first as a college lecturer in Speech and Drama and then as a grammar-school master before becoming an education officer in the Colonial Service, stationed in Malay and Borneo. In 1959 Burgess was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour and decided to become a full-time writer. Despite being given less than a year to live, Burgess went on to write at least a book a year - including A Clockwork Orange (1962), M/F (1971), Man of Nazareth (1979), Earthly Powers (1980) and The Kingdom of the Wicked (1985) - and hundreds of book reviews right up until his death. He was also a prolific composer and produced many full-scale works for orchestra and other media during his lifetime. Anthony Burgess died in 1993.
