Аннотация

When literary reprobate Foster James wakes up in a strange country house, he assumes he's been consigned to rehab (yet again) by his dwindling band of friends and growing collection of ex-wives. But he soon realises there's something a bit different about this place after he gets punched in the face by Ernest Hemingway. Is Foster dead? Has his less-than-saintly existence finally caught up with him? After an acrimonious group therapy session with Hunter S Thompson, Colette, William Burroughs, and Coleridge, it seems pretty likely. But he still feels alive, especially after an up-close and personal one-on-one session with Dorothy Parker. When he discovers that the two enigmatic doctors who run the institution are being torn apart by a thwarted love affair, he and the other writers must work together to save something that, for once, is bigger than their own gigantic egos. This is a love story. It's for anyone who loves writing and writers. It's also a story about the strange and terrible love affair between creativity and addiction, told by a charming, selfish bastard who finally confronts his demons in a place that's part Priory, part Purgatory, and where the wildest fiction can tell the soberest truth.

Радиоспектакль по мотивам романа Что такое «Двенадцать стульев»? Это книга-наслаждение. Рассказывать о ней тому, кто ее не читал, все равно, что описывать словами вкус потрясающего экзотического фрукта человеку, который его никогда не пробовал. Возвращаться к этой книге во второй и в третий раз – наслаждение особого рода, в котором большую роль играют нюансы и детали: "Замрите, ангелы, смотрите – я играю! Моих грехов разбор оставьте до поры, вы оцените красоту игры!" Не оценить красоту игры Остапа и искусство авторов здесь просто невозможно. На свете есть много замечательных писателей с лёгким стилем, неподражаемой иронией и бесподобным сарказмом, но Ильф с Петровым, пожалуй, всех их оставили позади. Часть 1-я. Великий комбинатор Часть 2-я. «Лед тронулся, господа присяжные заседатели…» Часть 3-я. «Заседание продолжается…» Часть 4-я. «Командовать парадом буду я!» Часть 5-я. «Дело помощи утопающим – дело рук самих утопающих» Часть 6-я. «Сокровище мадам Петуховой» От автора – Весник Евгений; Остап Бендер – Басилашвили Олег; Киса Воробьянинов – Яковлев Юрий; Отец Федор – Евстигнеев Евгений; Его жена – Дорошина Нина; Дворник – Петров Андрей; Мадам Петухова – Дмитриева Антонина; Мадам Боур – Шапошникова Людмила; Полесов – Сергачев Виктор; Мадам Грицацуева – Потапова Наталья; Завхоз Альхен – Сергеев Геннадий ©&℗ ООО ВГТРК (ГТРФ)

In this, the second book in the Little Girl Lost Trilogy, Sally Whitmore continues her process of becoming a more self-confident, self-accepting, self-actualized woman by orchestrating a six-week pole-dancing class. Week by week, she grows and evolves, as do her five misfit female students who have come to the class hoping to undo the effects of less-than-desirable lives. As a result, Sally becomes receptive to progressing beyond the losses that plagued her own life like a Greek tragedy. Driven by the undeniable sexual urgings toward Carlos, a new love of her life, she struggles with trepidations and doubts along with her excitement over him. During this time, Sally’s premonition dreams return. Only now they reveal more and actualize sooner than in the past, creating a sense of immediacy. Nearing the brink of self-doubt, Sally is also tormented with the feeling of being watched by an unknown someone not only invading her premonitions, but her everyday life. Caught in a vicious cycle of looking over her shoulder and frustration over what her dreams foretell, Sally finds herself in a life-threatening race against time.

In this, the first book in the Little Girl Lost Trilogy, the reader is taken into the psyche of Sally McFee, whose world is populated by pimps, prostitutes, strippers, a Mafioso and a cold-blooded killer. Sally struggles to balance the indelible imprints of these realities while becoming a passionate wife and a fiercely devoted mother. Like a Phoenix, she faces one merciless reality after another in an attempt to progress beyond her past into a more self-confident, self-accepting, self-actualized woman. The book is narrated in third person present tense, which draws the reader into the immediacy of this modern-day Greek tragedy. Told in a direct manner with unrelenting language, it is adult fiction punctuated with raw energy, gut-wrenching emotion and graphically blunt dialogue.

«Мать девочки заснула, а девочка ходила по вагону и разговаривала с пассажирами. Вот она подошла и ко мне. Я стоял возле окна. Волосы девочки осветились светом дня. За окном летело огромное пространство Казахстана, летело на юг, так как мы поднимались к северу…»
