  1. The Handmaid’s Tale

    By Margaret Atwood

    Offred is a “Handmaid” in the Republic of Gilead. She has 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. Brilliantly conceived and executed, this powerful evocation of twenty-first century America explores a world in which oppression of women, and repression of the truth, have become justified.

  2. القبعة والنبي

    لـ غسان كنفاني

    القبعة والنبي هي محاولة كنفاني المسرحية الثانية بعد -الباب-، وسوف نلاحظ هنا هاجساً مسرحياً تشكيلياً، يقوم على لعبة قفص الاتهام الذي يتحرك ليضم المُتهم مرةً والقضاة في مرة ثانية، وقد يمتد ليشمل جمهور المسرحية المفترض. من يتهم من؟ أم أن الجميع متهمون، وهذا -الشيء- القادم من عالم آخر ليس قبعة أو نبياً، إنه العنصر الذي يعلن استحالة علاقة القاضي – المتهم، فالجميع قتلة وأبرياء في الآن نفسه، لأن الأساس هو السؤال عن الجدوى.

    لـ عبد الرحمن منيف

    كتبت هذه القصص بين عامي 1969-1970 والتي كانت مرحلة تجريبية في حياة الكاتب عبد الرحمن منيف وامتحان أولي لممارسة الكتابة. حتى أن معظمها كتب قبل أي عمل روائي، في وقت كان مغرماً بقراءة القصة القصيرة. كانت هذه القصص تعيش في عقله ووجدانه، وقد تعود بذورها، لحوادث رآها بنفسه ولأشخاص عرفهم وعايشهم وتركت لديه ذلك الخدش الموجع.

  4. The Metamorphosis and other Stories

    By Franz Kafka

    Kafka‘s nightmarish novels and short stories have come to symbolize modern man’s anxiety and alienation in a bizarre, hostile, and dehumanized world. This vision is most fully realized in Kafka’s masterpiece, “The Metamorphosis,” a story that is both harrowing and amusing, and a landmark of modern literature. Bringing together some of Kafka’s finest work, this collection demonstrates the richness and variety of the author’s artistry. “The Judgment,” which Kafka considered to be his decisive breakthrough, and “The Stoker,” which became the first chapter of his novel Amerika, are here included. These two, along with “The Metamorphosis,” form a suite of stories Kafka referred to as “The Sons,” and they collectively present a devastating portrait of the modern family.

  5. Seriously… I’m Kidding

  6. عمارة يعقوبيان

    لـ علاء الأسواني

    في روايته “عمارة يعقوبيان” قدم علاء الدين الأسواني عملاً محكماً ودقيقاً، وجميلاً إلى حد كبير. وبداية فإن الروائي يكشف عن حس شعبي ينقه من روايات المثقفين التي تتخذ بطلها الرئيس من مثقفي شرائح الطبقة الوسطى وتجعل من عذابه وتردده موضوعها الأول، فالبطل الأول هو اللوحة العامة للظروف الاجتماعية والسياسية والثقافية التي مرت بها مصر في العقد الأخير من القرن العشرين، وتحديداً عشية وخلال حرب الخليج الثانية. وتصبح عمارة يعقوبيان التي بنيت عام 1934، مرآة، تتداخل وتتشابك على سطحها، إنسانياً وفكرياً، صور وبشر وعلاقات تسطع بالصلة الوثيقة بين قاع المجتمع وقمته.

  7. هند والعسكر

    لـ بدرية البشر

    تاريخ نساء هذا البيت ولد من حكاية ولدت في فناجين القهوة. كل منهن لها حكاية في قلب فنجان، إن لم يجلبها الغيب معه صنعن هنّ الحكاية، يتداوين بها من مرّ الزمان، فتعطيب لهن الحكاية مع القهوة المرة. كل واحدة منهن خرجت من رحم حبة هيل طويلة، أودعت فيها حكايتها.

  8. Lord of the Flies

    By William Golding

    When a plane crashes on a remote island, a small group of schoolboys are the sole survivors. From the prophetic Simon and virtuous Ralph to the lovable Piggy and brutish Jack, each of the boys attempts to establish control as the reality – and brutal savagery – of their situation sets in. The boys’ struggle to find a way of existing in a community with no fixed boundaries invites readers to evaluate the concepts involved in social and political constructs and moral frameworks. Ideas of community, leadership, and the rule of law are called into question as the reader has to consider who has a right to power, why, and what the consequences of the acquisition of power may be.
