"A compact masterpiece dedicated to the Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich--Julian Barnes's first novel since his best-selling, Booker Prize-winning The Sense of an Ending. 1936: Shostakovich, just thirty, fears for his livelihood and his life. Stalin, hitherto a distant figure, has taken a sudden interest in his work and denounced his latest opera. Now, certain he will be exiled to Siberia (or, more likely, shot dead on the spot), he reflects on his predicament, his personal history, his parents, various women and wives, his children all of those hanging in the balance of his fate. And though a stroke of luck prevents him from becoming yet another casualty of the Great Terror, for years to come he will be held fast under the thumb of despotism: made to represent Soviet values at a cultural conference in New York City, forced into joining the Party, and compelled, constantly, to weigh appeasing those in power against the integrity of his music. Barnes elegantly guides us through the trajectory of Shostakovich's career, at the same time illuminating the tumultuous evolution of the Soviet Union. The result is both a stunning portrait of a relentlessly fascinating man and a brilliant meditation on the meaning of art and its place in society"-- Provided by publisher.

Pag mabilis na umalis baka di naman talaga dumating : at iba pang kwento

December 13, 2018
Tolentino, Roland B., author.

xix, 155 pages ; 23 cm
Short stories.
Ang magnanakaw -- Sayaw ni Marinela -- Ina ng aktibista -- Kapag tinotortyur -- Ang presidente sa palasyo -- Tapat sa uri -- Kwento ng kapital -- Latifundia at Urian -- Pagmamahal -- Pag mabilis na umalis baka di naman talaga dumating -- Hinggil sa May-akda.
"Sa ikatlong koleksyon ng maikling kwento ni Rolando B. Tolentino, ang mga iglap ay hitik sa kwento ng paglisan, pagdating, di pagbalik, pag-aantay, paglagi--pero parating puno ng pagtatagpo. Ang eksena ng tagpuan ay enkapsuladong sandali at sityo ng mga realidad, fantasya, angas, labis at kulang sa historikal, panlipunan, sarili, kapwa, kabalintunaan, paradox, pagnanasa, at pagdanas. Pag-ibig ang puno't dulo gayong malawak at malalim ang pagdanas sa aspirasyonal na spero ng buhay na ito. Umiibig tayo kanino, ng ano, saan, kailan, bakit, paano, at para kanino--na bawat isa ay may kanya-kanyang pagmumundo at minumundo ng pag-ibig. Umiibig nga ba tayo talaga, o umiibig lang tayo sa idea na umiibig tayo, umiibig pa tayo, iibig at iibigin tayo? Ang Pag Mabilis na Umalis Baka Di Naman Talaga Dumating, at Iba Pang Kwento ay isang musa ng pagdanas at mundo ng mga iglap na hitik at said sa pag-ibig, pagkatao, at pakikipagkapwa-tao. Lipad-sadsad para sa posibilidad at pagkakataong makaalagwa at pag-asang magtagumpay." -- cover,
