За своє недовге життя (він прожив усього 41 рік) відомий польський письменник Тадеуш Доленга-Мостович (1898–1939) створив 16 романів, вісім з яких були екранізовані. У видавництві «Фоліо» вийшли друком його книжки «Кар’єра Никодима Дизми» і «Щоденник пані Ганки». Головний герой роману «Знахар» (1937) – Рафал Вільчур, хірург від Бога – пережив особисту трагедію: від нього пішла молода красуня-дружина, яку він дуже кохав. Водномить все його життя пішло шкереберть: того ж дня професор Вільчур, усіма шанована людина, опинився на вулиці без грошей і документів, до того ж втративши пам’ять. І розпочалися довгі роки поневірянь… Знайшовши прихисток у сім’ї Прокопа Мельника, Вільчур вилікував його хворого, прикутого до ліжка сина і став членом їхньої родини. Інтуїція і хист лікаря нікуди не зникли. Хоча Вільчур не пам’ятає власного імені, проте знає, як допомогти хворим людям. І чутки про дивовижного знахаря ширяться по всіх усюдах…
A deeply affecting and daring novel about small towns, art, and loneliness. “A gorgeous, urgent, nonlinear exploration of loss, belonging, rage, and connection, Evie of the Deepthorn announces André Babyn as an unmissable talent.” – Grace O'Connell What is Evie of the Deepthorn ? It’s a cult Canadian movie that Kent looks to for inspiration as he struggles to understand the death of his brother. It’s a fantasy novel that Sarah wrestles with as she navigates a traumatic childhood and comes to terms with her failures as an adult. It’s a poem that motivates Reza to go on a pilgrimage from which he will not return unscathed. Shifting and sometimes contradictory, Evie of the Deepthorn is about the search for answers – and escape.
This feel-good sequel to the award-winning My Mother's Kitchen is all about family, good food, love and finding the way back home. Since the death of her husband three years ago, Meena's mother has wanted to see her oldest daughter married and so she organizes Meena's "seeing ceremony," a ritual associated with arranged marriages. However, eighteen-year-old Meena is not ready to be married and wants to leave her hilltop home in Mahagiri, south India, and attend college in California. The ceremony is a disaster. Her four years in America soon comes to an end and Meena is eager to return home and share her newly-acquired knowledge of agriculture and tea production with her family. On her journey back to India, Meena meets handsome businessman Raj Kumar with whom she has an instant connection. They end up talking for hours in the airport lounge. When they part at the departure gate, Meena doesn't think she'll ever see Raj again. Back in Mahagiri, her mother faces a threat to her home and livelihood. Meena could avert this disaster by agreeing to an arranged marriage. Will Meena have to go through yet another "seeing ceremony?"
My Mother's Kitchen is an enchanting place filled with promise, change and good food. If the weathered walls of this magical room could talk they would tell the story of Meena and her childhood life. Each chapter is a slice in her young life and depicts her spunk and youthful spirit. A visit to the local Fruit and Flower Show becomes an adventure as told by Meena. Her distress at finding out about her aunt's dark secret or her joy of making a new friend are all told in her naïve, yet pure voice. Her mother is a central character in her life and it is no wonder that the kitchen is a special place of healing and rejuvenation, not only for Meena but for other characters like Kashi and Ayah. Look for the continuing store in Seeing Ceremony, now available!
