    We Can't Help It If We're From Florida

    $24.00

    Florida is more than just fodder for hard-boiled crime novels and zany farces. This anthology of new stories and essays challenges a star-studded line up of current and former Floridians to write about the state through a literary lens, though not without the requisite weirdness. The Florida within this book contains: lightning, oil spills, road rage, a lizard tied to a balloon, swimmers, sleepwalkers, characters that love Florida, characters that hate Florida, and at least three sinkholes.

  10. Oblomov

    Oblomov

    $20.00

    Even though Ivan Goncharov wrote several books that were widely read and discussed during his lifetime, today he is remembered for one novel, Oblomov, published in 1859, an indisputable classic of Russian literature, the artistic stature and cultural significance of which may be compared only to other such masterpieces as Nikolai Gogol’s Dead Souls, Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, and Fyodor Dostoevsky’s Brothers Karamazov.

    Stephen Pearl’s new translation, the first major English-language publication of Oblomov in more than fifty years, succeeds exquisitely in introducing this astonishing and endearing novel to a new generation of readers. Rich in situational comedy, psychological complexity, social satire, and incisive depictions of class, ethnicity, and sexuality, Oblomov is clearly a novel that was written for all time.


    “This is an excellent translation . . . I have no hesitation recommending it. . . .Pearl’s rendering is fluid, elegant, and witty, and it is a great relief to have a replacement for the 1954 translation by David Margarshack, which is dated. ”—Barbara Henry, University of Washington

    “A fine new translation.” — Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World

    "Though it would be absurd to expect that Pearl has unveiled a new Oblomov—one that significantly alters the reader’s view of Goncharov’s masterpiece—this translation clearly surpasses its predecessors. Eschewing the dangerous 'be-literal-at-all-costs' principle observed by some translators, Pearl offers a consistently smooth, supple, and idiomatic rendition of the novel—a version that preserves the 'spirit' of the original Russian text. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All readers; all levels.”— R. Gregg, emeritus, Vassar College, Choice Magazine

    "Stephen Pearl’s translation is by far the best I’ve read . . . it boasts a livelier, more contemporary idiom while it faithfully reproduces Goncharov’s 19th-century Russian.” —John Givens, University of Rochester

    "A deep warm bath of a book, something you can slip down into silently and fall gently through its pages until you are drowsy with pleasure. . . . It’s a longish book, but it’s not heavy-going thanks to a new translation by Stephen Pearl.” —Michael Enright, Canadian Broadcasting’s Sunday Edition

    "Marvelously translated by Stephen Pearl without sounding overwhelmingly British or American.” —Keith Garebian, The Globe & Mail

    "Beautiful new edition and translation . . .” —Carlin Romano, Philadelphia Inquirer Learn More Add to Wishlist
