1 A.S. Byatt Opowiadania z Matisse'em w tle (Polish)
Proszynski i S-ka 1999 8371804938 / 9788371804939 Hardcover Very Good 
Hardcover with glossy Fauvist front side. NO marks; no writing in book. Text is in Polish. Three stories celebrate the eye even as they reveal its unexpected proximity to the heart. Each of A.S. Byatt's narratives is in some way inspired by a painting of Henri Matisse, but also about the intimate connection between seeing and feeling. Superbly crafted, intensely observed, The Matisse Stories is a reflection of a master's spellbinding authority.

Twarda oprawa z błyszczącą fowistyczną stroną przednią. NO znaków; bez pisania w książce. Tekst jest w języku polskim. Trzy historie cieszą oko, nawet gdy ujawniają nieoczekiwaną bliskość serca. Każdy z A.S. Narracje Byatta są w pewien sposób inspirowane obrazem Henri Matisse'a, ale także intymnym związkiem pomiędzy widzeniem a uczuciem. Znakomicie dopracowane, intensywnie obserwowane Opowieści Matisse'a są odzwierciedleniem mistrza magii.

A.M. Klein: Short Stories, Klein, A.M.; Moses W. Steinberg
18 Klein, A.M.; Moses W. Steinberg A.M. Klein: Short Stories
University of Toronto Press 1983 0802064698 / 9780802064691 Paperback Like New 
Glossy softcover with no marks or writing. XXV, 338 pages. Rear cover has some age-toning. Otherwise Fine.

A.M. Klein's reputation as a writer on his poetry and to a lesser extent on his remarkable poetic novel The Second Scroll. But he also wrote many short stories over a period of more than a quarter of a century. Until now few people have been aware of their existence; many exist only in manuscript form, and most of those that were published appeared in magazines that were not readily accessible to the general reading public. This volume bring them together. Klein's range of themes and styles in his short fiction, as in his poetry and in his journalistic writing, is broad. He draws on his Jewish experience, focusing on legends, festivals, and ceremonies, well-known character types, and familiar aspects of Jewish life -- in the synagogue, in the home, and on the streets. Klein was not limited, however, by his Jewish concerns, for he also wrote social and political satire and parodies of the detective story and of literary debates. His pervasive sense of humor is often closely associated with his feeling for the macabre, producing a quality of black comedy that is distinctly Kleinian.
