Overview: “Mary Renault lives again!” declares Emma Donoghue, author of Room, referring to The Song of Achilles, Madeline Miller’s thrilling, profoundly moving, and utterly unique retelling of the legend of Achilles and the Trojan War. A tale of gods, kings, immortal fame, and the human heart, The Song of Achilles is a dazzling literary feat that brilliantly reimagines Homer’s enduring masterwork, The Iliad. An action-packed adventure, an epic love story, a marvelously conceived and executed page-turner, Miller’s monumental debut novel has already earned resounding acclaim from some of contemporary fiction’s brightest lights—and fans of Mary Renault, Bernard Cornwell, Steven Pressfield, and Colleen McCullough’s Masters of Rome series will delight in this unforgettable journey back to ancient Greece in the Age of Heroes.

Peer Gynt and Brand by Henrik Ibsen
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 2.72 MB
Overview: Masterful versions of Ibsen’s two great verse plays by one of our greatest living poets, Geoffrey Hill

These two masterly and contrasting verse dramas by Ibsen made his reputation as a playwright. The fantastical adventures of the irrepressible Peer Gynt—poet, idler, procrastinator, seducer—draw on Norwegian folklore to conjure up mountains, kidnappings, shipwrecks, and trolls in an exuberant celebration of life; while Brand, an unsparing vision of an idealistic priest who lives by his steely faith, explores free will, sacrifice, and the self.

This volume brings together the poet Geoffrey Hill’s acclaimed stage version of Brand with a new poetic rendering of Peer Gynt, published for the first time.

Download The Penguin Book of the Prose Poem by Jeremy Noel-Tod (.ePUB)(.MOBI)

The Penguin Book of the Prose Poem: From Baudelaire to Anne Carson by Jeremy Noel-Tod
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 867 KB
Overview: The last decades have seen an explosion of the prose poem. More and more writers are turning to this peculiarly rich and flexible form; it defines Claudia Rankine’s Citizen, one of the most talked-about books of recent years, and many others, such as Sarah Howe’s Loop of Jade and Vahni Capildeo’s Measures of Expatriation, make extensive use of it. Yet this fertile mode which in its time has drawn the likes of Charles Baudelaire, Oscar Wilde, T. S. Eliot, Gertrude Stein and Seamus Heaney remains, for many contemporary readers, something of a mystery.

The history of the prose poem is a long and fascinating one. Here, Jeremy Noel-Tod reconstructs it for us by selecting the essential pieces of writing – by turns luminous, brooding, lamentatory and comic – which have defined and developed the form at each stage, from its beginnings in 19th-century France, through the 20th-century traditions of Britain and America and beyond the English language, to the great wealth of material written internationally since 2000. Comprehensively told, it yields one of the most original and genre-changing anthologies to be published for some years, and offers readers the chance to discover a diverse range of new poets and new kinds of poem, while also meeting famous names in an unfamiliar guise.

Disco Boy by Dominic Knight
Requirements: .ePUB, .AZW reader, 1.01MB | Version: Retail
Overview: A hilarious novel from a great comedic writer, one of the founders of The Chaser’s War on Everything.

No DJ can mix ‘Celebration’ into ‘Come On Eileen’ quite like Paul Johnson, the king of rancid retro. But while he has the musical jumper leads to get even the most dismal party started, he can’t get his own life moving. Trapped in a job he despises, a perpetual failure with the ladies and living at home with his distinctly unhelpful parents, Paul’s stuck in limbo while everyone around him is limbo-dancing.

While he’s avoided the corporate mousetrap that’s ensnared his friend Nige, Paul dreams of one day playing his own music instead of John Farnham’s. But it’s much easier to joke about your problems with your friends than to do something about them.

A romantic comedy that’s equal parts bitingly cynical and naively idealistic, Disco Boy is a story for anyone who’s ever hit the Pause button on their life, and found it hard to press Play again.

My Old Man by Amy Sohn
Requirements: .ePUB, .PDF, .AZW reader, 1.69MB | Version: Retail
Overview: When twenty-six-year-old Rachel Block started rabbinical school, she didn’t think she’d be dropping out after a semester and a half. But when a sick man dies under her counseling, she realizes she’s not cut out for the rabbinate. To make ends meet, she takes a job as a bartender in her Brooklyn neighborhood–much to her parents’ chagrin. It’s the quintessential quarter-life crisis, compounded by the fact that she’s still living just blocks from her childhood home.

Then Rachel falls in love with Hank Powell, an iconoclastic screenwriter twice her age. Suddenly she’s reassessing her values, her surroundings, and everything she’s ever thought about the "right" kind of relationship. Meanwhile, her interactions with her father, with whom she’s always been close, have become increasingly strange. Is he distraught that she’s dropped out of school? Is he having his own, midlife, crisis? Something’s up…and Rachel’s increasingly convinced it might be her father’s libido.
With Rachel’s own relationship getting wilder and weirder and her parents acting like teenagers, it seems that everyone in Cobble Hill is going crazy. A fresh spin on Philip Roth’s Portnoy’s Complaint, My Old Man is a black comedy about a dysfunctional Brooklyn family coming apart at the seams.

Little Disasters by Randall Klein
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 2.3 Mb
Overview: A gripping novel about two young married couples—expectant parents and new friends—whose lives collide in a pile-up of deceits and indiscretions

It was the exhilaration of new parenthood that first united Michael and Paul, outside the Brooklyn hospital where their wives, Rebecca and Jenny, had exiled them from the delivery room. For Paul, though, tragedy swiftly followed that euphoria. Hoping to speed his and Jenny’s recovery, he turns to Michael for a favor, unwittingly kindling the spark of connection between these couples into the affair that will blow them apart.

One year later, on the same morning that the catastrophes of their personal lives come to an explosive head, a mysterious crisis in Midtown Manhattan all but shuts down the city, leaving both men stranded—Michael at the northernmost tip of the island and Paul in a dark subway tunnel under the East River. Each must make the arduous trek home through record-breaking heat, nervously eyeing the thin plume of smoke above the skyline, though it’s their private turmoils that loom largest. Told in the alternating voices of these charismatic but deeply flawed men, Little Disasters deftly cuts between the suspense of the citywide disaster and the history of secrets, lies, and losses that has brought these four intertwined lives to the brink. Smart, unsparing, and bitingly funny, Randall Klein’s debut is an engrossing story of the bonds of love and family—and our unending urges to test them, even when we need them most.

Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors by Rex Feral
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1 Mb
Overview: In 1993, a triple murder was committed in Montgomery County by a man who was alleged to have used this book, Hit Man, as his guide. He was caught and convicted and sentenced to death. Wanting to profit from their loved one’s murder, and realizing that the murderer himself was too poor to be worth suing, the family of those killed by the hit man sued Paladin Press, the publisher of the book Hit Man, saying Paladin Press “aided and abedded” the murder.

May 21, 1999, Paladin Press settled the case, giving the families of those killed by the hit man several million dollars, agreeing to destroy the remaining 700 copies of the book in their possession, and surrendering any rights they have to publish and reproduce the work. While the families were successful in profiting from their loved one’s death, they have not been successful in stifling the book. With the surrender of the publishing rights by Paladin Press, the book has entered the public domain, and is being published on the Internet here at Overthrow.com in its entirety this weekend, May 22-23, 1999.

The book was initially published in 1983. 13,000 copies of the book are now in existence. There has only ever been one case where the book was associated with a crime, in in that case the criminal had recently finished a lengthy prison sentence and had a history of prior violent crime. It is our opinion this book has never incited a murder, that the settlement of the Paladin Press case was wrong and forced by the insurance company, and that this book, and no book, should be banned. We invite the public to judge for themselves.

That said, here is Hit Man …
