Elizabeth Costello by J. M Coetzee( Book )

Elizabeth Costello is a distinguished and aging Australian novelist whose life is revealed through a series of eight formal addresses. From an award-acceptance speech at a New England liberal arts college to a lecture on evil in Amsterdam and a sexually charged reading by the poet Robert Duncan, the author draws the reader toward its astonishing conclusion.

Vit jazz by James Ellroy( Book )
4 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in Swedish and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Los Angeles 1958. Mord, misshandel, mutor och utpressning är vardag för biträdande kommissarie David Klein. Han är en maktmänniska i ett litet hörn av Helvetet. Så annonserar den federala polisen en undersökning om poliskorruption och en verklighet sipprar upp som till och med är ännu ondare än den Klein föreställt sig. Kleins snabba, blixtlika beskrivningar är lika brutala som landskapet; en värld han själv varit med om att skapa, men som han nu skulle göra vad som helst för att undkomma levande. Grym, nitisk och slipad till en rakbladsegg är James Ellroys prosa i Vit jazz, som av många framhållits som hans absoluta mästerverk. [Publit]
