• The Canterbury Tales (Bantam Classics)

    Lively, absorbing, often outrageously funny, Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales is a work of genius, an undisputed classic that has held a special appeal for each generation of readers. The Tales gathers twenty-nine of literature’s most enduring (and endearing) characters in a vivid group portrait that captures the full spectrum of medieval society, from the exalted Knight to the humble Plowman.

    This new edition includes a comprehensive introduction that summarizes some of the most important historical events and movements that defined the world of Chaucer and his pilgrims; two additional tales (Reeve’s and Shipman’s); introductions for each tale designed to prepare the reader for a better understanding and enjoyment of the tale; newly written and conveniently placed explanatory notes; and a new, more easily understood system for learning to pronounce Chaucerian Middle English.

  • A Drifter: Poems & Verses

    A Poet’s journey ……… How can I decipher my journey, as a poet? When, poetry kept on floating in and out of my life at its sweet will. The poems & verses are an expression of my inner self, A personal universe of words……. Words, scribbled during odd minutes, hours, days……. Words, springing from feelings, images and situations that I confronted every day…………. Words, fluttering inside me and finding wings to land on one blank sheet of paper after another….. Words, companions of my cloistered persona, helping me to overcome periods of personal crisis….. I was a willing prisoner, who found freedom in words. The beauty of poetry, It can break your heart, It can also heal it And, I would have remained the solitary reader………. Till, I thought of sharing my world of words with public at large. They are accompanied by paintings and photographs that became an integral part of me in pursuit of personal happiness. Let these poems and verses find empathy from its readers .

  • Deux secondes de trop (French Edition)

    En 1972, deux secondes furent ajoutées au temps pour compenser le mouvement de rotation de la terre. Deux secondes. Cela semble insignifiant. Mais pas pour le jeune Byron Hemming fasciné par ce phénomène. Il scrute en vain le cadran de sa montre, en attente de ce moment magique où les aiguilles reculeront de deux secondes. Alors que sa mère le conduit à l’école, il croit que ce moment arrive enfin, le crie à sa mère. Et c’est l’accident… aux innombrables conséquences. Intimement persuadés que les deux secondes supplémentaires sont responsables de ce jour funeste qui a changé sa vie, Byron et James, son meilleur ami, enquêtent pour découvrir ce qui s’est véritablement produit. Mais cette enquête risque de bouleverser encore plus leur destin… Des personnages attachants, un grand sens de l’observation, des situations poignantes… Un roman tendre et fascinant où l’obsession d’un enfant peut faire voler en éclats le miroir parfait dans lequel une famille aimait à se contempler.

  • The Bottom Line: A Book of Business Ballads

    Welcome to my brilliant guide to Life, the Universe and Bottom Burps! The world can be a confusing place at times, so to help make sense of it I’ve collected together loads and loads of my brilliantest poems and cartoons from down the years. I’ve tried to explain everything that any bloke could ever need to know about – which is basically BOOZE and DOING IT with some bottom burps thrown in (although not while you’re doing it). But while I was at it I thought I’d let you know about lots of other stuff too – from the complete HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE to a total GUIDE TO LIFE. I hope you enjoy it. Cheers! Purple Ronnie
