Summary

The classic novel about a man torn between his devotion to his mother and his desire for a lover.   Cited by the Modern Library as one of the ten best twentieth-century novels in the English language, Sons and Lovers is considered by many to be D. H. Lawrence’s masterpiece, with its deep psychological insight into the bond between mother and son, and the difficulties of emotionally separating from a parent.   Considered a semiautobiographical work, it follows protagonist Paul Morel as he experiences the loss of his older brother, hostility toward his coal miner father, and a burden of responsibility toward his more genteel mother, who inspires maddening mixed feelings in him. Paul struggles to find room in his life for a meaningful, romantic relationship of his own as he works to hold his family together.

    From the author of The Thirty-Nine Steps, three bored, middle-aged men plot a challenging adventure in the Scottish Highlands in this classic novel. In 1925, John Buchan published his second most famous novel, John MacNab: three high-flying, middle-aged men—a barrister, a cabinet minister, and a banker—are suffering from boredom. They concoct a risky plan to cure it. They inform three Scottish estates that they will poach two stags and a salmon from each, in a given time. They sign collectively as “John McNab” and await the responses . . . This novel from one of Hitchcock’s favorite writers is a light interlude within the “Leithen Stories” series—an evocative look at the hunting, shooting and fishing lifestyle in Highland Scotland.

    Justine

    This “very remarkable novel”—first in the acclaimed Alexandria Quartet—tells a haunting story of love, desire, and deception in the Egyptian city pre-WWII (New York Herald Tribune Book Review).  Set in Alexandria, Egypt, in the years between World Wars I and II, Justine is the first installment in the distinguished Alexandria Quartet. Here Lawrence Durrell crafts an exquisite and challenging modern novel that explores tragic love and the fluidity of recollection. Employing a fluctuating narrative and poetic prose, Durrell recounts his unnamed narrator’s all-encompassing romance with the intoxicating Justine. The result is a matchless work that confronts all we understand and believe about sexual desire, identity, place, and the certainty of time. This ebook contains a new introduction by Jan Morris.
